Of course, this article is only a tiny glimpse into Gate 41, and to understand Gate 41 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!!! 🙂
