How to know if you have Channel 3-60 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 Root and Sacral Energy Centers at the bottom middle of the chart. If Gate 60 in the Root Energy center is connected to Gate 3 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.

High Expression of the Channel of Mutation

  • You can be a change agent in the right situation but only if the project or work is in alignment with your strategy and authority.
  • Your ability to be a force for change depends on your ability to accept the limitations and rise above the confusion of new beginnings. This energy is an  endless movement from chaos to order. You can bring order to confusing situations.

Challenge Side of the Channel of Mutation

  • You may have a fixed pattern in the way you do things.
  • You may need to stop trying to reason your way through sadness and stop looking to re-experience the  happiness you felt when you were connected to a certain place, experience or person.
  • Spending time alone when things feel off is key.
  • There is a need to be patient with your process and accept limitations in life. Understand that things that are not yet ready to materialize will emerge when the time is right – this is the limitation that you must accept.
