36 Channels of the Human Design Chart – Individual Channels

15 of the 36 Channels have individual quality. People with individual Channels are primarily interested in themselves and acoustically oriented. They are often freaks and cannot be labeled. It is most difficult for them to get integrated into society, into gorups and tribes, because they are lone wolves and need to spend much time alone, not influenced by the masses. They are so to speak the agents of evolution, who should bring something new, a mutation to the collective and society to ensure the survival and development of the human race.

They don’t like at all to be told what they should do, and thus they are uncontrollable and “deaf” to the influence of others. The reason for that is that they should bring fresh wind to the dusty old things, instead of perishing in the homogenized world.

Their being is accompanied by the deep melancholy that is the foundation for creativity and innovation, as long as they don’t give any reasons to this melancholy and don’t try to avoid and evade it. Melancholy is often accompanied by the feeling of not moving forward in their lives, of being stuck and that nothing moves in their life. When people with individual Channels allow themselves to share this melancholy and to accept the permanently recurring limitation, then they can access their power and bring creative and mutative empowerment to the society and the collective.

The 36 Channels of the Human Design Chart – Tribal Channels

7 of the 36 Channels have a tribal quality. People with the tribal Channels are primarily interested in their family and closest community and need a lot of physical touch and contact. The tribal Channels are the foundation of our society, through which our life gets structured and maintained. For getting a better sense of the tribal Channels, think about indigenous tribes. These are neither interested in the world. For them, it is mostly about trade, family relationships, education of children, caring with nourishment, common activities, common rituals, and religion.

For people with tribal Channels, loyalty, reliability, financial security for the survival of their clans and clear bargains are significant. Phrases like “One hand washes the other” or also “Eye for eye, a tooth for a tooth” comes from the tribal configuration of someone’s Design. People with the tribal Definition are often very caring and supportive in their nature, but they don’t do it selflessly, because their support is always connected to a condition. Clear bargains are essential for peaceful coexistence in a tribe, no matter how big or small it is. They trust you only when they can smell you in every sense.

The tribe is always suspicious to individuals and people with collective Definition, and they don’t trust them much. Understanding and acceptance of the difference provide for peaceful coexistence, because we all are dependent on each other in the end, to further develop as a human species and to survive.

36 Channels of the Human Design Chart – Collective Channels

14 of the 36 Channels have a collective quality. People with collective Channels are interested in humanity as a whole and are visually oriented.

The collective channels consist of two different qualities. On the one hand, we have the logic channels that are oriented to the future, all step by step and to research, and then to share with the world scientifically. On the other hand, we have the abstract channels that look instead into the past, analyze the past experiences to share a vast treasure of life experience with the masses.

The collective is quick to share criticism, solutions, opinions, expectations, intentions, medical breakthroughs, etc. They need to wait until their perspective is invited because otherwise, the collective sharing of the experiences can be very annoying and stressful. If they wait to be asked by the other or invited to share their logic or abstract perspective because they are open for it, then this is a satisfactory, effective, and transforming experience on both sides.

Most people have different kinds of definitions in their Design and often have a mix of the 36 Channels consisting of individual, tribal and collective qualities. For example, I carry all in my design. So I am a freak who doesn’t fit into any category, a person who appreciates and enjoys the correct and enriching community, and at the same time I love sharing my abstract experiences with others.
