Fear – it's a sensation that keeps us on our toes, in more ways than one. In the world of Human Design, fear takes center stage in the Splenic Centre, where it choreographs an intricate dance through unique gates that influence our every move, decision, and outlook.

Today, we're setting out on a journey – a journey deep into the world of Human Design, to decode the gates linked with fear. But here's the twist: we're not here to shy away from it. Instead, we're going to flip the script. These gates are not the monsters under our beds; they're the keys to unlocking our potential.

Get ready to shed light on the shadows and unleash the brilliance that's been there all along.

Specifically we are going to explore how those "fear gates" in your Splenic Centre can actually be the secret to unlocking your true potential.

The gates (coloured numbers) in this centre are referred to as "fear gates". They're like treasure maps leading you to your hidden blocks. They're here to unveil your untapped potential and zap away your self-doubts.

Your fears aren't your enemies; they're your growth buddies. Each fear gate uncovers layers of you that might need some TLC.

Turning fears into fuel:

These fear gates aren't roadblocks, they're stepping stones. Embracing these fears means unlocking a whole new level of solopreneur magic.

Gate 18: Fear of authority

Reframe: Embrace your unique authority

Trust that you have the power to guide your own path and make decisions aligned with your intuition. Embrace your authentic voice and remember that you are your own best authority.

Affirmation: "I embrace growth and learning from mistakes. I release perfectionism and focus on finding solutions."

Gate 28: Fear of running out of time

Reframe: Embrace the Present Moment

Instead of fixating on time running out, focus on the present moment. Every moment is an opportunity to create, learn, and grow. Trust that you are exactly where you need to be. Embrace mindfulness and prioritize actions that align with your true purpose.

Affirmation: "I engage authentically and communicate openly. I create harmony and cooperation in all interactions."

Gate 32: Fear of failure

Reframe: Embrace growth through experience

Instead of fearing failure, see it as a stepping stone to success. Embrace the idea that failures are valuable learning experiences that contribute to your growth. Embrace a growth mindset, celebrate your efforts, and use failures as feedback to refine your strategies.

Affirmation: "I embrace change as an opportunity for growth. I release resistance and welcome positive transformations."

Gate 50: Fear of responsibility

Reframe: Embrace your empowerment

Instead of shying away from responsibility, recognise that you have the power to create positive change. Embrace the opportunities to lead and contribute to your business. View responsibilities as chances to make a meaningful impact and empower others.

Affirmation: "I respect diverse perspectives and values. I live my values with authenticity and openness."

Gate 44: Fear of the past repeating itself

Reframe: Embrace the power of awareness

Instead of fearing the past repeating, use it as a source of wisdom. Reflect on past experiences and lessons to make informed decisions. Embrace the opportunity to break cycles and create a new, empowered path for your business.

Affirmation: "I trust in the flow of life. I stay present and calm, knowing I can handle challenges with grace."

Gate 57: Fear of the future

Reframe: Embrace possibilities

Instead of fearing the unknown future, shift your focus to the possibilities it holds. Embrace uncertainty as a canvas for your creativity and potential. Trust that you can adapt and thrive in any circumstance, and focus on co-creating a future aligned with your vision.

Affirmation: "I trust my inner wisdom and intuition. I release fear and doubt, allowing my intuition to guide me."

Gate 48: Fear of inadequacy

Reframe: Embrace your unique value

Instead of feeling inadequate, recognise your unique strengths and talents. Embrace the value you bring to your business and the world. Let go of comparisons and focus on your individual journey. Embrace self-compassion and self-worth.

Affirmation: "I embrace vulnerability and authentic connection. I share my insights with love and openness."

And there you have it, the journey through the intricate web of Human Design's fear gates comes to an end, but what a ride it's been! We've taken fear from being the bogeyman in our closets to our guiding North Star.

In the Splenic Centre's spotlight, we've decoded these "fear gates" as treasure maps to our hidden blocks and the keys to unleashing our untapped potential. Our fears? They're not foes; they're growth allies, peeling back layers that need some TLC.

These fear gates? They're not roadblocks; they're stepping stones to solopreneur greatness. From embracing our unique authority to unlocking our untapped value, we've learned to flip the script.

So, as you venture forth, remember this: fear isn't a full stop; it's a comma in your story. Embrace it, for within those fears lies the brilliance that's always been there. In Human Design, every gate, every fear, is a stepping stone to your solopreneur magic.
