Today the Sun moved into the Gate 13, the gate of the Listener.
I’ve learn so much from this gate. Gate 13 in a nutshell is here to receive and listen to others. A vessel to take in stories, record history in order to alchemize the lessons and wisdom for the future of the collective.
This energy is here to receive and contemplate; being a container to take in stories, record history in order to alchemize the lessons and wisdom for the future of the collective.
It is here to learn from the past. Being in the Sensing Circuit, this is about reflecting on the emotional depth our experiences.
If you have this gate, you might notice people often being TMI around you, strangers sharing their life story when you’ve just met, being privy to secrets and good at keeping them.
People feel comfortable, pulled & even compelled to share when they’re in this gate’s aura.
Located in our Identity Center, the energetic hub for love, self, identity and direction. It’s pointing towards Gate 33, the gate of Privacy which is located in the Throat Center and carries the voice of “I remember”. It’s where Gate 13 gets to release what they’ve heard and taken in.
The 13 without gate 33, may not always have the energy to reflect, process the stories and insights they’re received. They might end up holding onto secrets, feeling resentful and heavy by the weight of them or too attached with no proper outlet.
The wisdom of Gate 13, is learning to simply listen and to hold space for one another.
It’s healing and a necessary part of the human experience to have a safe space, a container to share our joy, our lessons, our losses and pain. To be understood with empathy and compassion, to be seen without judgement. Remember, this is the center for love as well.
In learning about our past, we pave the way for a better future; this is not about coming up with solutions though, this is about embracing the insights of the depths of our emotional journeys.
But just because you have the capacity to hold what you hear, doesn’t mean you’re here to listen to everyone/anyone. Or that you’re meant to bottle it all up. We all need each other.
Who are the people who hold space for you? Who can you soundboard as you go through your own process?
The lesson from Gate 13 is that our stories have power and they’re here to be shared with the right people/outlet + when the time is right.
This is projected energy after all. Learning to discern who can receive or who to share with is crucial and viceversa, when to listen + hold space
Boundaries are important no matter what design you are. But specially if you carry gate 13. Find ways to check in. How can you ground yourself, safely release the stories, the secrets that make their way to you?
Find outlets to move this energy. There are so many creative ways to do so, find what you’re feeling pulled to explore. So you can hold and move this energy without being heavily affected or defined by them (e.g gate 13 + undefined solar plexus holding on to other’s emotions + traumas)
I see this energy often expressed through professions such as historians, therapists, storytellers, comedians, social commentators, documentary filmmaking, photography etc.
Do you have Gate 13 active? Would love to hear your reflections, share below!
I have gate 33 and my husband has the 13, early in our relationship I would find myself reflecting and telling him things I’ve never told or admitted to anyone . And viceversa, him having a space to release what he’s been holding. This is one of the electromagnetics that defines our throat centers
And if you’re looking for some additional support in synthesizing the elements of your Human Design chart, book a 1:1 session or package here. Or want to learn more about the gates and centers, check out my group program Coming Home launching this Spring.
