Release Fear and Embrace the Gifts of Your Intuition

written by Maggie Sale Ostara, PhD | April 28, 2021

SUN –> Gate 24  ~ EARTH –> Gate 44

Today the Earth moves into the Gate 44, which is a potentially difficult energy if you’re not aware of it. This is one of those pitfalls you want to avoid. Gate 44 is on the Spleen Center and all spleen gates are known as fear gates. The fear of the Gate 44 if the fear of the past.

My experience is a lot of people have this energy running without even realizing it. It’s subconscious and often wired into our instinctual survival strategies. That’s because in order to understand a situation in the present, our minds refer to the past to see what we already know about similar situations.

This happens in a flash that you often cannot even detect! Then we take what we know from the past and project that out into the future. If we have fear of something that happened in the past — and this is typically what our survival mechanisms are most attuned to — then we create fear of something similar in the future.

Make sense? 

The Gate 44 can stimulate this process without you even realizing it.

This gate can be quite influential. In traditional Human Design it’s half of the channel of sales — it’s known for setting the stage to enroll others into buying something or enrolling  in a vision or purpose.

The last thing you want to do is enroll people in your fear of the past projected into the future — and yet we do that all the time. So forewarned is forearmed.

What can you do?

You can becoming super discerning about what you are believing and question your own assumptions. Have a conversation with yourself where you get clear about the motivation and perspective underlying what you’re thinking, how you’re feeling and what you’re doing. Is it coming from fear or trust?

Make a decision to shift from the shadow state — where you try to get other people to confirm and join you in your fear — or disempowered state — where you become paralyzed and cannot move forward — into an awakened state where you are aware of challenges and wounds you’ve had in the past, you embrace what you learned from them, and you create a positive vision of the future based on your more healed and evolved self. 

Good news:
The Sun in Gate 24 can help you do exactly this!!

Gate 24 is at the beginning of the Knowing Circuit, the most intuitive circuit in the chart. The 24 receives the inspirations and insights coming in from the Gate 61 into the Ajna Center. The Ajna can be overly left-brained in its tendency toward analysis, data, and linear thinking.

When the energy of Gate 24 is awake and alive in the direction of what’s possible, a gift of the Knowing Circuit, then the information coming through can be felt and received as blessings. This is the name for the gate in Quantum Human Design*. The traditional name is Rationalization, and you can see how this name expresses more the shadow of this energy where it questions and disbelieves the intuitive downloads coming in through the 61. 

Be aware of how you’re relating to your intuitive hits and insights this week. Are you receiving them and honoring them as blessings? Or are you talking yourself out of them because they aren’t logical or rational? 

When you refuse to be control by the fear of past situations, wounds and traumas, and instead embrace the learning they provided, you create the foundation to receive the insights and inspirations of your intuitive gifts (we all have them!!) and experience them as blessings.

When you fall prey to the fear of the past, or allow unhealed trauma to control you, then you’ll feel suspicious, wary, even paranoid if it goes too far. That will inhibit your ability to trust the inspirations and insights that you would be receiving from the Sun lighting up the Gate 24. 

The 44 and the 24 can both be super powers for you — or they can be your nemesis. It’s really your choice!

And remember, these energies are going to be influencing everyone around you, too! So be attuned to over people either acting out of fear of the past, or overly rationalizing and dismissing what intuition is bringing forward.

Understanding how these energies work can help you navigate your relationships with much greater wisdom, avoiding potential conflicts and running down the wrong path!
