This series explains the energy of each Gate around the Throat Center so you will know how to communicate effectively and authentically as YOU. For each gate, we’ll cover the circuitry of the gate, its gifts and challenges, its “voice,” and practical ways to apply this information. The Introduction to this series can be found here. Links to the rest of this series are at the end of this post.
Every gate energy belongs to particular circuitry within the chart, which is like an electrical circuit board. This circuitry shows the evolutionary role of the gate energy and how the energy moves through the chart.
Circuitry of this Gate:
Circuit Group: Collective
The Collective Circuit Group serves the greater good and our collective values. It shares information, opinions, experiences, solutions. It is not personal.
The Sensing Circuit energies use stories, experiences, and reflection to learn from the past, discover the cycles of life, and make sense of our human experience.
High Expression of this Gate:
If you have the Gate 35 defined in your chart, you naturally pay attention to how you feel and you crave new experiences. You are eager to explore, adapt, create change, and break new ground. You often learn new skills quickly, expanding your “tool belt” and giving you a wide collection of knowledge and capabilities.
You are usually more interested in finding new challenges than repeating experiences to develop mastery, hence the motto, “Jack of all trades, master of none.” You are driven by the experience itself and the wisdom to be gained from it, instead of the actual result.
If you can stay objective, sharing your experiences can bring wisdom, change, and progress to those around you and to all of humanity. This is collective energy!
Your life mantra is, “seize the moment,” and you live life to the fullest. Your drive to try everything and share your experiences means that the rest of us don’t have to! You can be a wonderful storyteller with fascinating experiences to share.
Low Expression of this Gate:
In the low expression, you may rush into new experiences without following your Strategy and Authority and enter these experiences “incorrectly” for your energy.
If you’re feeling bored because nothing interesting is happening, you may leap into new adventures, and even bring others along with you, without considering the consequences.
This energy can bring a jaded quality of “been there, done that” leaving you feeling bored and disengaged. You also may have the sense that nothing lasts in life.
You may feel let down if a new experience doesn’t meet your expectations, or just feel empty after the previous thrill and hungry for the next.
Your Voice with this Gate:
This gate uses the words, “I feel…”.
If you have this gate defined, it’s appropriate for you to say these words often as you relate the emotional aspects of your stories and adventures. Your experiences are actually an emotional journey that brings growth and maturity personally and collectively.
Tips for Using this Energy:
-Be aware of your impulse to make “some kind of” change or try something new. Be sure to align with your Strategy and Authority before stepping into anything.
-Develop a list of healthy (for you) actions to take when you’re feeling bored, disappointed, or unfulfilled.
-After new experiences, take a few moments to identify the lessons you learned and how you want to share these with others.
-You may not be a goal setter, preferring to seize opportunities when they show up, so don’t beat yourself up trying to set goals for the year (or even this week!) and then trying to stick to them. Embrace your spontaneity!
Next gate moving clockwise around the Throat Center:
Gate 12, with the Voice “I act” or “I know I can try.” If you have the 12 defined, start noticing how often you say these phrases, or something like them.
