How to know if you have Channel 24-61 activated in your bodygraph chart

  • Go to and go to “Get Your Chart”.
  • Input your birth details including birth day, birth time, birth location.
    • NOTE – Information in the bodygraph chart is VERY sensitive to birth time so it is important to have an accurate birth time if possible.
  • Look at the Ajna and Crown Energy Center in the bodygraph chart. If Gate 24 in the Ajna Energy Center is connected to Gate 61 with a colored line (not white) this means this channel is activated and the energetics of it are consistently available to you.

What are the Channels in Human Design?

  • The Channels in a Human Design body graph chart represent the gifts, talents, motivations, energetics or drives that are consistently available to us. If you DO NOT have a channel fully activated or colored it doesn’t mean you never have access to that energy. It just means it’s not a reliable or constant energy in your life.
  • Lastly, it is worth noting that there are MANY layers to all aspects of the chart including the gates. This article is intended to be a high level summary.

How the Channels Can Show Up Energetically in our Life

  • We can use the energy of a channel in a positive or negative way towards ourselves and/ or other people.
  • We may embody the energy with lack and/or fear OR we can embody the energy with truth and abundance.
  • Because of external conditioning we have encountered, we may shy away from the energy and choose NOT to see it as a part of ourselves. We may not want to embrace it and shut it down instead.

What does a Black Line vs. a Red Line vs. a Striped Line Indicate? 

  • Black Lines represent gifts that we are likely more conscious and aware of.
  • Red Lines represent gifts that we are likely less conscious and aware of.
  • Striped (both black and red) lines represent gifts that are both conscious and unconscious.

Channel of Awareness (24-61) 

The Channel of Awareness (24-61) connects Crown and Ajna Energy Centers

Themes Associated with the Channel of Awareness 

  • The energy of this channel is about thinking and processing inspiration – not necessarily discovering it.
  • Accepting the unknowable
  • Gate 24 looks to Gate 61 for the next inspiring mystery to process and Gate 61 looks to Gate 24 to process and solve the mystery.

High Expression of the Channel of Awareness

  • Your mind is connected to the mysteries in life. You understand mystery through an inner knowing that just comes to you. This “knowing” breaks up old cycles, shatters logical patterns and inspires new realizations.
  • You will get aha’s out of nowhere and these epiphanies are often about the mysterious things in life. When you are able to make sense of these mysteries, it hits you right in the core of your being.
  • The mind is designed to turn things over and over again until the moment of revelation arrives and you simply know. You just know.
  • An ability to accept that some mysteries in life are unknowable and being ok with that.

Challenge Side of the Channel of Awareness

  • You do not need to share the epiphanies you have unless you want to. This energy is not connected to the throat so this “knowing” is just for you. Let your relationship with mystery be a fuel for expression – not through the voice but consider turning it into art, writing or other expression.
  • You are not able to control your “knowing”  so it is important to understand that the “knowing” just comes when it does. It can’t be forced.
