Channel 10/20 in Human Design: The Lighthouse of Remembering to Stay True to Our Innermost Core While Also Appreciating the Beauty of the Present Moment and Bathing in the Here and Now.
The Channel 10/20 in the Human Design System: Your Guide to Authenticity and Presence
The Human Design System, a relatively young yet profound tool for self-discovery, combines ancient wisdom from the I Ching, astrology, Kabbalah, and the chakra system with the latest insights from quantum physics, biochemistry, and genetics. A fascinating synthesis, isn’t it? And within this complex framework, there is the Channel 10/20, where it’s all about awakening and dedicating oneself to higher principles. Join me on a journey into the depth of this special channel and discover what it reveals about authenticity and presence in your life.
Human Design System: A Brief Overview
Before we delve into the Channel 10/20, let’s take a quick look at the fundamentals of the Human Design System:
- Centers: There are nine centers corresponding to various aspects of our personality and health.
- Gates: With 64 gates based on the 64 hexagrams of the I Ching, these connect the centers.
- Channels: These gates are connected by 32 channels, facilitating communication between the centers and determining how energy flows between them.
The system shows you who you truly are and how you best operate in this world. It essentially provides you with the user manual to yourself. Pretty handy, right?
Now that we’ve covered the basics, let’s focus on the special Channel 10/20.
(And here’s an overview of ALL Channels!)
The Human Design Chart looks like a mix between an alien control panel and a complex circuit diagram, or even like hieroglyphics. 😉 But don’t worry, it’s actually quite simple once you understand the basics. 😉
The Channel 10/20 – Now that you’re a master of the fundamentals, let’s take a look at this special channel:
This channel connects the G-Center (Gate 10) and the Throat Center (Gate 20).
- Gate 10: It represents the behavior of the Self. It’s about how you express and value yourself. It’s not just about how we see ourselves, but how we express this Self in the world. Authenticity and integrity are key concepts here.
- Gate 20: It represents the Now. It focuses on being present in the current moment. It symbolizes the here and now. It’s about presence, about consciously experiencing the current moment. I always say it’s about bathing in the Here and Now 🙂 And I quite enjoy doing that, because I have Gate 20 in my Personality Sun.
So, the Channel 10/20 connects your self-behavior with being present in the Now. In simpler words: It teaches you to be authentic, to deeply surrender to the love of yourself, and to act from that authentic self in every moment, while fully living in the present moment. The Channel 10/20 is a direct connection between the true Self and the ability to be present in the Now. It shows how we can authentically manifest our innermost essence in the world with full presence.
Fun Facts about Channel 10/20:
- It’s the “Be-yourself-and-dance-as-if-no-one-is-watching” channel.
- If you have this channel in your design, there’s a good chance you enjoy life to the fullest… and maybe occasionally misplace your phone because you’re so present in the Now. But hey, it’s probably for the best, that way you can surf the cosmic internet instead of our human one 😉

- Presence: The connection to Gate 20 gives you the ability to intensely live in the Now. This is a reminder to cherish the moment and not constantly dwell in the past or future. To strengthen the presence of Gate 20, sit down, immerse yourself in the present moment, and observe your thought mechanism without identifying with it…
