How to know if you have Channel 30-41 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 Solar Plexus Energy Centers at the bottom middle and right side of the chart. If Gate 41 in the Root Energy center is connected to Gate 30 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 Recognition 

  • This is called the Channel of Recognition because new experiences allow you to recognize an emotion within yourself and you are then able to share it with others.
  • This channel is also about divine inspiration in creativity.
  • Gate 30 looks to Gate 41 for the energetic pressure of knowing what “could be” and what is possible.  Gate 41 looks to Gate 30 to know exactly what it wants in the moment.
    • In other words, Gate 30 has the desire to live out the fantasies that “live” within Gate 41.

High Expression of the Channel of Recognition

  • You are likely very creative in a way that is unique to you and this creativity may feel like it is divinely inspired at times. You may feel very in touch with the divine when you are creating new things. 
  • You are also here to see the potentials and possibilities of things.
  • This channel is also about seeing the potentials – what are all of the possibilities in things.

Challenge Side of the Channel of Recognition

  • Because there may be a strong pressure to experience the intensity of emotions and life, you may find yourself leaping from boredom into new experiences quickly.
  • And, because you will want to share these experiences with others, it can inspire some pretty wild rides and, on occasion, some deep reflection after the fact
