Series: Voices of the Throat #8 – Gate 33 “I Remember” 

by Evelyn Levenson

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.

Circuit: Sensing
The Sensing Circuit energies use experiences and reflection to learn from the past and discover the cycles of life.

High Expression of this Gate:

If you have the Gate 33 defined in your chart, you are a wise storyteller able to share many sides of a story and glean the lessons to be learned from it.

You must take time to retreat into the privacy and comfort of a safe space to process what you have learned and what you want to share.  This quiet alone time allows you to reflect on your experiences and the experiences of others, recuperate your energy, and decide what lessons to take with you as you move forward and re-join the activity around you.

This gate is the endpoint of the experiential portion of the Sensing Circuit. In the highest expression of Gate 33, what you learn and what you share are part of the collective human experience and they advance our evolving consciousness.

Each cycle of experience, and each pause between experiences, helps you grow wiser and more influential.  Your memories and knowledge contribute to the larger body of wisdom and provide guideposts to our deeper human truths.

You have an instinct for which experiences you need to have for your own growth, and you may break with tradition and expectations of others in order to follow your own path.

Low Expression of this Gate:

In the low expression, you may have specific expectations that go unmet by life’s varied experiences, and your disappointment (or anger, frustration or bitterness) can cause you to miss the valuable lessons there.

The challenge for Gate 33 energy is waiting for the right timing to share your stories and lessons—a common theme in Human Design… and in life!

Another challenge with this energy is getting stuck in reviewing and re-living the past instead of reflecting on it and then moving forward.

Even if you are a fast-moving and very social Manifesting Generator, carve out the alone time demanded by this gate.  If you don’t, life will be a blur and you’ll miss the nuggets of wisdom buried in your flurry of activity. The keynote of “retreat” for this gate can literally mean occasional trips to a spa, silent retreat, or relaxing vacation.

Your Voice with this Gate:

This gate uses the words, “I remember.”

If you have this gate defined, it’s appropriate for you to say these words often. Or, perhaps you admit that, “I don’t remember…”

You often know the hidden truths and hold the history of the family or organization, becoming a storehouse of wisdom, knowledge and sacred memories.

Tips for Using this Energy:

-Bear witness to events as they unfold and resist the temptation to judge or force them.  When you accomplish this, their lessons will be clear and useful.

-Surrender to and embrace the path that feels right to you (by following your Strategy and Authority!) and trust that, ultimately, your personal experiences will contribute to the greater good.

-Trust that everything will make sense eventually, though it often doesn’t make sense in the moment.  Instead of trying to figure things out, be present moment by moment and revel in the experience.

-It’s important that you “learn from hindsight” so don’t be afraid to think about and work through your experiences, including the unpleasant ones, to find the hidden lessons.

-Recognize that some memories and stories need to be shared (as long as you wait for the right timing), and some need simply to be forgiven and forgotten.


Next gate moving clockwise around the Throat Center:

Gate 8, with the Voice “I contribute.”  If your Gate 8 is defined, start noticing how often you say this or say, “I don’t know if I can contribute…”

  1. This was the best description of this gate and how it may express in different ways, depending on the individual’s life. I have the whole channel unconscious, SN & Mars and totally resonate with this. Thank you for including the circuitry too 💕

  2. “trust that, ultimately, your personal experiences will contribute to the greater good.”
    This made me cry. I have been struggling with not doing more for the greater good, bigger visible things with impact. I am a new coach because all my life people have told me I give such valuable information for free constantly when I should charge for a lot of it. Xx
