How to know if you have Channel 37-40 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 Heart or Ego and Solar Plexus Energy Centers in the bodygraph chart. If Gate 37 in the Solar Plexus Energy center is connected to Gate 40 with a colored line (not white) this means this channel is activated and the energetics of it are consistently available to you. (see graphic below)

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.

Themes Associated with the Channel of Community 

  • The energy of this channel is NOT about what things money can buy but what it takes to work side by side and to make progress as a community. It is all about where bargains are agreed upon, bringing loyalty to support the community.
  • Gate 37 looks to Gate 40 for the work, skills and resources that are needed to ensure the community will be supported and successful. Gate 40 looks to Gate 37 for recognition, community and friendship that will benefit from the resources it carries.

High Expression of the Channel of Community

  • For you, loyalty to the group or family is greater than loyalty to yourself.
  • You understand the importance of the exchanges that need to occur to ensure survival of the family or group. You know what a “good” bargain or negotiation is. You know how to seal those agreements to ensure balance in the community. Investment is focused on each other and the needs of the whole group.
  • You also understand that no one individual is superior or inferior because everyone contributes what they can.
  • There is often a “coming of age” aspect to this energy where you find the need to leave the community for a period of time, rise up in the ranks through experience and./ or education, and then return again to help move the community forward.

Challenge Side of the Channel of Community

  • There is an aspect of waiting with this channel. You will wait to see who will recognize you and ask you to be part of the group or community (or not).
  • This waiting is about trying to figure out where you belong or how you fit into the big picture.
  • The correct invitations will come through touch or direct person to person contact over a period of time.
  • The energy of this channel can make one prone to codependency.
