With Gate 16, you have the great potential to achieve mastery through repetition, and within you lies a deep passion and burning enthusiasm for skill and perfecting it.

The point of Gate 16 is to transcend a skill so that it becomes living and lived art. Through this, your life is a true art, and your own life is a work of art.

You leave traces with Gate 16 in life itself and in the lives of people who you influence.

Of course, this article is only a tiny glimpse into Gate 16, and to understand Gate 16 even better in your Human Design, you need to look at it in the context of Type, Strategy & Authority, and the rest of the definitions of your individual Human Design, then you will an even bigger picture.

AND, unfortunately, to be able to tap into and unleash the full potential of this gate, it is NOT enough to just know that you have this gate, because then you will still be far from living it, or really fulfilling its potential. Most often the potential of this gate will be distorted by your mind.  

Therefore, it is essential to tap into the potential of your design through STRATEGY AND AUTHORITY. As a CONSEQUENCE, you will unleash the potential of each gate in your individual design. But this can only be done mechanically through your individual strategy and authority and not mentally.

Because if you don’t live according to your strategy and authority, you can have the greatest and most brilliant gates in your design and have your perfect symphony of type, strategy and authority, your channels and your gates, BUT you will NOT live the potential of all these gates or rather suppress and distort it IF YOU don’t live according to your strategy and authority but have your openness and your Mind be the slavedriver in your life.

In my in-depth analysis, we look at the gate IN CONTEXT, and in the context of the planet, that activates the gate, the lines in detriment, and exaltation, and of course, your design and thus what it means to YOU individually! Most people are blown away by the in-depth analyses when they discover that they have such a brilliant potential, some of which they haven’t even tapped into yet, and are then motivated by following their Strategy & Authority to unleash their full potential!!! 🙂
