How to know if you have Channel 27-50 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 Splenic and Sacral Energy Centers in the bodygraph chart. If Gate 27 in the Sacral Energy center is connected to Gate 50 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 Preservation

  • The energy of this channel is about caring for people (including ourselves) and the preservation of life.
  • Gate 27 knows when it is energetically correct to care for others and looks to Gate 50 for instinctive awareness on when to set healthy boundaries around the natural need to care for others.

High Expression of the Channel of Preservation 

  • Those who have this energy are “light bearers”. You are here to champion for the best interests of others AND you can do something about it. 
  • You are very tuned in to what other people need in order to feel good in the present and you are willing to take action to help them.
  • Your aura causes people to automatically trust you so people may look to you for support and nurturing. 
  • You also understand that the ability to nurture starts with taking care of yourself first.

Challenge Side of the Channel of Preservation

  • Others may perceive your focus on self-care as self-indulgent but it is very important for you to take care of yourself to protect your energy.
  • A challenge can arise for you when you believe that others will be as tuned into  this caring energy the same way you are. It can make you very resentful when it seems like other people don’t care as much as you do and you are the one who has taken on all of the responsibility.
  • Always leverage your strategy and authority to decide what caring responsibilities to take on.
