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. 🙂

Human Design Gate 6 – Conflict – Friction

The true purpose of the Human Design Gate 6 if YOU follow your strategy and authority and thus unleash the potential of the gate:

With Gate 6, you have the potential to grow and mature through friction/conflict and the potential for emotional intelligence when Strategy and Authority are followed.

Thanks to Gate 6, evolution and growth through conflict resolution are possible for the individual and the community.

There is potential for sexual intimacy through friction with Gate 6 – that is, sexual penetration 😉

The Not-Self quality of the Human Design Gate 6 if you do NOT follow your strategy and authority, but base your decisions on your mind`s command:

You mentally provoke and fuel conflicts and sometimes or even often act as the “apple of discord,” causing trouble.

The potential shadow of Gate 6 is imposing intimacy, going against the will of others, and/or obsessing over intimacy or avoiding intimacy, or using it as leverage.

And of course, being impulsive and initiating something mentally without taking time and listening to the Strategy and Authority.

The Human Design Gate 6, also known as the Gate of Conflict, is a key component in the comprehensive Human Design System that offers profound insights into our personal energies and potentials. Located in the emotional center, the Human Design Gate 6 plays a pivotal role in how we process emotions, engage in relationships, and experience and resolve conflicts.

Individuals with an activated Human Design Gate 6 are distinguished by their profound emotional depth and an intuitive connection to the emotional states of others. This gate’s unique energy enables them to experience and express emotions in a deep and nuanced way. This capacity can lead to intense and meaningful relationships, but it also holds the potential for emotional turbulence and conflicts.

The Human Design Gate 6 is not only associated with the experience of emotions and conflicts but also with the ability to heal and reconcile. People with this gate in their design often possess the natural talent to build bridges and bring harmony into tense or conflict-laden situations. Their deep emotional intelligence allows them to view conflicts not as obstacles but as opportunities for further development and personal growth.

A key feature of the Human Design Gate 6 is its cyclical approach to conflict resolution. This gate goes through three phases: the first is characterized by direct confrontation and experiencing conflicts; the second by withdrawal and reflection; and the third by healing and reconciliation. This cyclical nature reflects the natural process through which we learn and grow, both individually and collectively.

The energy of the Human Design Gate 6 also contributes to the development of wisdom and maturity. As they navigate through the various phases of life, individuals with this gate learn to transform their emotional experiences into deep insights they can share with others. This wisdom is significant not only for their personal development but can also be a valuable resource for their communities and relationships.

Despite the many positive aspects associated with the Human Design Gate 6, challenges can arise, particularly in terms of emotional vulnerability and the intensity of the emotions experienced. Individuals influenced by the energy of this gate must learn to navigate their emotions and set healthy boundaries to maintain their emotional stability and well-being.

Practicing and deeply understanding the Human Design Gate 6 offers valuable insights into the complex nature of our emotional landscapes. It teaches us to recognize the transformative power of conflicts and to embrace the opportunities for healing and reconciliation they provide. By acknowledging and integrating the dynamics of this gate, we can learn to experience and utilize our emotions more consciously to build deeper and more fulfilling relationships.

In summary, the Human Design Gate 6 plays a crucial role in the emotional and relational aspects of our lives. It provides insights into how we experience and resolve conflicts and teaches us the importance of emotional depth, healing, and personal development. By implementing the principles of this gate in our lives, we can lead a richer, more harmonious, and fulfilled existence.

Of course, this article is only a tiny glimpse into Gate 6, and to understand Gate 6 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!!! 🙂
