If you want to know which gates are activated in your individual design, get your personal Human Design Chart from us, as mentioned above. Then in your chart, you will find a red column on the left, these are your unconscious gates, and on the right of your Human Design chart, you will find a black column. These black numbers are your conscious activated gates. And then, on my website, you can open the respective gates and read through which aspects are activated as a potential in your design. 🙂

Gate 2 – The Receptive – The Direction of the Self

This is the true purpose of gate 2 if YOU follow your strategy and authority and thus unleash the potential of the gate:

With Gate 2 defined in your individual chart, you have inherent inner guidance towards love and beauty and, at the same time, an intrinsic orientation and inner knowledge of where to go in life. When invited/asked, you have the gift of being able to give others direction in life.
Gate 2 is your inner compass, which is a good direction for yourself, another person, a project, etc. Gate 2 is the driver in the Magnetic Monopole in your design. And when you live correctly, you get impulses to go in your individual, new and creative direction in life.
You have the potential for self-empowerment when you follow your own creative and individual direction in life.

This is the Not-Self quality of gate 2 if you do NOT follow your strategy and authority, but base your decisions on your minds command:

Then your Mind, which is the spokesperson for your conditioning and open centers, wants to initiate/force a new direction in your life or in the lives of others with Gate 2.
Then you fall for the misleading belief that you mentally know what a good direction for yourself, the other, a project, etc is.

Of course, this article is only a tiny glimpse into Gate 2, and to understand Gate 2 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!!! 🙂
