Gate 19 is the Gate of Wanting: There’s a pressure to approach, interact with others in order to fulfill their emotional + material needs.
As part of the Community (tribal) circuit, this energy shows up as support. It’s about finding aligned interactions to take care of our basic needs and thrive. Located in our Root center pointing towards the Solar Plexus. It’s part of the Community (Tribal) Ego Circuit.
The wisdom of Gate 19 is learning to balance your own needs with the ones from your community.
You’re highly attuned to your environment and are sensitive to those energetic fluctuations. You might notice little things like the texture of certain foods being different from an ingredient change, a local store swapping their aisles…This allows you to connect deeply with others including animals and your surroundings.
The truth is, we need each other in order to survive and thrive. But just because you’re aware of other’s needs, don’t forget about your own.
You can’t support others when you’re overextending yourself or get the support you need when you close yourself off. You know the oxygen mask metaphor? This is probably where it came from.
It’s all about balance; it’s ok to need others and also having the resources to ground + self soothe. Some questions to ponder on:
Being in the Community circuit, this energy thrives through touch. I often think of Gate 19 being expressed through many healing modalities such as massage therapists, shiatsu practitioners, acupuncturists, osteopaths and even any kind of contact sports/group movement such as jiu jitsu, dancing etc.
One of the biggest lesson from the 19 is how interconnected we all are; to each other and the world around us. How our wellness is related and dependant on the health of our communities + ecosystems. Think environmental, social justice activists in bringing awareness to issues we might not directly experience ourselves. (Greta Thunberg has this gate, activated in two placements!)

Im currently learning more about HD I love the clarity it gives. I have gates 19 and 49 active with a defined root and solar plexus. I can’t feel the emotions of others and I can kind of sense what people need. Feeling so much that I want to cater to everyone putting their needs above mine. Growing and healing has been teaching me the balance of pouring only when I have enough to pour into another
