How to know if you have Channel 7-31 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 G-Center and Throat Energy Center in the bodygraph chart. If Gate 31 in the Throat Energy Center is connected to Gate 7 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.

Themes Associated with the Channel of the Alpha 

  • Alpha male or female energy
  • Leadership energy (in a good way or a bad way)
  • Gate 7 looks to Gate 31 for the gift of influence that empowers the self to step into strong leadership roles.  Gate 31 looks to Gate 7 for the corrected path and new direction to guide through servant leadership.

High Expression of the Channel of the Alpha

  • This energy is about leadership so you may find that you thrive in leadership roles. Consider leading groups,  a team, an organization or a family.
  • The leadership energy in this channel comes from a place of earned trust because it is about proving a direction to others. You can be incredibly influential and you may find that people want to know the way you do things, daily routines, or business habits.
  • There is a saying that not all “alphas” will lead a pack but no true alpha will stay in a pack led by another alpha. So you may not become a community or national leader but you will naturally seek your own area of influence (big or small)

Challenge Side of the Channel of the Alpha 

  • You may not see yourself as a leader so lean in gently and start to see yourself as a leader. Ask yourself – “are you afraid of seeing yourself as a leader? Do you have blocks or shadow around seeing yourself as a leader?
  • The energy of this channel requires that your leadership must be invited by the majority in order to lead successfully. Your leadership cannot be forced or pushed onto a group.
  • ​​This energy is about providing direction and moving us toward the future. You are designed to point the way but you are not meant to do the work yourself.
