When you are feeling stuck and out of flow, it could be sign that you need to turn to your Conscious Earth in your Human Design Chart.

Your Conscious Earth is the second number down on the right side. This is all about grounding and balance - it shows you the practices that will bring you back to your centre.

This gate provides stability and balance in your every day life and your business.

I remind my Aligned Marketing coaching clients that when they are feeling unstable, ungrounded and out of flow come back to this gate because you can use it to align your thoughts feelings and actions and get back on track.

The more you embody this gate the more you are going to feel grounded and strong.


Recently I had this strange feeling that I hadn’t really experienced before. I felt out of flow and really flat.

I will save all the details for another episode but the basic outline is I felt like there were some things in my business that were not happening in accordance with ‘my’ expectations and that was getting me down.

I felt like I had worked with my design to do these things and they just were not working. And that is when I started questioning myself and everything I was doing.


It’s part of my design that I question things and have this need to have revelations (gate 47).

So I started questioning:

Am I doing something wrong?

Am I feeling these things because I needed to get somewhere else?

Am I going through a lesson that I need to learn so I can teach it?

All these things were going through my mind. I was doing my own head in!

I meditated. I pulled oracle cards. I went for long walks in nature.

Still no answers. And I was feeling even more down.

But then it a voice in my mind reminded me ‘come back to your Conscious Earth.’

Boom! OMG how did I not think of that sooner? It’s what I tell my clients!

So I pulled out my books and dived into my Conscious Earth.


My Conscious Earth is Gate 55: The Gate of Spirit. It’s primary action is to emotionally embody your faith in the spirit of abundance.

That’s it I had actually lost my sprit and went back to old conditioning that I needed to work hard and come up with new services to be abundant. I was trying to control the situation. And as a result I really had a fear of emptiness (which actually is the core theme of the gate).

This situation in my business was really about me letting go and trusting. It’s about me not trying to control it and having the courage to let go and let God.

It’s about working with your strategy and authority and trusting.

The nature of life is limitlessly abundant but I was looking at it with the wrong attitude.

Gosh, it’s always a learning curve and the energy of this gate is something we need to grow into. We don’t always get it right and this one especially is a lifelong journey to master.

In my research I came across this quote:

“The universe is abundant and supports each of us. In order to see this, though, we must open all of our senses.” – Thomas Lloyd Qualls

So really that was it, I had to open my senses. I had to trust my intuition and use my strategy and authority.


Ok. Ok. Ok. Now I know what the problem was, there were signs that I missed, so if you are in this situation keep an eye out for what’s coming to you.

Sign 1. Earlier that day I had this feeling it was something to do with my intuition. I went down the rabbit hole of looking up some things in my Human Design chart. I came to the conclusion I am very intuitive based on the gates I have and I’m struggling to trust that sometimes - so that is something I need to work on.

Sign 2. Angel number 555 was clearly presented to me. This can serve as a reminder to trust in the journey and know that you are being guided and supported on your path.

Sign 3. The oracle card I drew was all about letting go of control and I really got that message from my meditation also.

Sign 4. My Conscious EArth sits in the emotional centre so it was no wonder my emotions were all over the shop and totally out of character!!

Once I realised all this. I immediately felt back to my normal self.


It can be really useful to understand your Conscious Earth and how you need to apply that to your business.

We all have situations that are going to pop up and derail us, so being prepared is going to help keep you on the right track.

Tip 1: When you feel unstable, come back to your Conscious Earth.

How can you apply that to what you are currently doing in your business? How can you use that to get out of stuck mode?

Tip 2: Always use your strategy and authority

Use your strategy and authority to help you make decisions - plan new products, services and the way you do everything in your business. Allow your strategy and authority to be your guide and trust that it will lead you in the right direction.

For those that are not sure:

Your authority is how you are designed to make correctly aligned decisions

Your strategy is how your energy type is designed to interact and engage in life.

If I’m really honest I porbably didn’t work with this properly in the situation and that’s what resulted in me coming unstuck.

Tip 3: Trust your intuition and the guidance of your inner knowing.

The splenic centre is an awareness centre that deals with intuition, immunity and fear.

If you have fear, you haven’t developed your intuition enough.

By looking into the defined gates in your splenic centre you may get some understanding into your innermost fears and desires. They can provide you with insight into our motivations and how to best manage our fears. By understanding our fears, we can take steps to confront them and move through them in a healthy and productive way and develop your intuition.

Tip 4: Be open to exploring and learning more about yourself and your Human Design.

When something comes up in my business and life I like to look into the gates associated with that centre. It can provide insight into how you deal with situations and how you can best work with your strengths.

Pay attention to the patterns and cycles that emerge in your life and business and take the time to understand what they mean. This is how we grow and evolve.

I’ve spoken before about how Human Design has changed my business and life. I can honestly say I would not be where I am right now if it was not for Human Design.

I would be chained to my computer, working long days, missing time with my daughter and doing some projects that just were not lighting me up. I’d be feeling frustrated.

The biggest thing I can see about the Human Design path, is it is an ever evolving journey. I am learning new things about myself all the time and each time I learn something new it takes me even further into alignment (even when I think I am there, it goes further which is amazing).
