Learn to release judgment and remain in the frequency of unconditional love to achieve this.

Pay attention if you have any more of these dual Gates! They are an integral part of who you are

To better understand the difference in expression imagine your Human Design chart as a vast garden, Gates are the different flowers within that Garden. Some flowers are in full bloom, catching the sunlight and showcasing their vibrant colors (Conscious gates). These are the aspects of yourself that you're aware of and easily express. They're the evergreen plants that are always around.

On the other hand Unconscious gates are like seeds lying beneath the surface of the soil, waiting to sprout. They are still a part of your unique garden, but their potential hasn't fully blossomed into your conscious awareness. These gates hold hidden qualities, untapped strengths, and unique gifts that are yet to be discovered. These are your seasonal plants that blossom when the time is right before lying dormant again.

Just like the garden needs time, care, and attention for those seeds to grow into beautiful flowers, your Unconscious Gate 25 may need moments of reflection, experiences, or encounters to bring it into the light of your consciousness.

So what if your Gate 25 isn't active. No worries!

Gates are just one part of the Human Design ecosystem, and your potential to access Gate 25's juices is always there. However, since your gate is inactive, it'll require an assist from someone or something else to begin flowing.

Here are 3 ways your Gate 25 can be activated:

First, check to see if the hanging gate listed above is activated in your chart.

If it is, Gate 25 is simply waiting to complete a high five with your hanging gate. This can happen during planetary transits or when in the presence of someone with Gate 25 active!

If your Gate 25 doesn't have an active hanging gate, it will need a little more of an assist from the universe to be activated since the entire 25-51 Channel will need to be connected to get these juices flowing.

One final special case is if your Gate 25 is activated while in an Undefined Center. In that case, you will notice more of its energy present when you're around someone with that Center defined, or when a transit defines that center for you.

Remember, not having a gate active isn't a negative thing! We all have unique gifts that we embody more often than others, but gate activations can unlock the hidden strengths, creating waves of change that foster personal growth and harmony. So keep a look out for these energetic assists!
