As we've talked about before , the Root center, the very bottom square in the Bodygraph is a "pressure" center. It creates a pressurized, adrenalized energy to be moving, going, DOING.
The WAY that this energy expresses through you depends on your DEFINITION (the center and the lines/gates coming off of the center).
Those areas colored in are those that you are meant to experience CONSISTENTLY in this lifetime. They are the stable energies that you consistently work with.
The areas that are white/undefined for you are the areas that you are meant to become wise about; you can experience the FULL range of energy there.
As we begin to talk about the gates in depth, I find it helpful to think of them less as "static" energy and more as a dynamic, buzzing energy that you are plugged into. The energy is malleable; while it cannot be taken away, it can TRANSFORM into something else.
Left unaware, these frequencies take on that of the collective, which, tends to be lower expressions of fear, lack, scarcity, and victimhood. But brought into the light of awareness, they can be shifted into gifts and even expressed as PURE ESSENCE. THAT is the work. THAT is the journey with your human design.
Gate 39: Unleashing Your Fearless Visionary
Gate 39 is traditionally known as the gate of "provocation"; like other root gates, there is a primal urge to ACT here and it often shows up as a need to poke and provoke others.
In it's lower frequencies, this shows up as a reckless need for violence, not just physical but emotional and verbal as well. These people KNOW your buttons and KNOW how to push them! They can have very sharp tongues.
Underneath this is a primal fear of lack similar to gate 38, but gate 39 is a fear specifically rooted in lack of autonomy. There is a fear that one can fully express themselves. Like life has them boxed in and they wish to break free.
As many of our beliefs about the world begin to solidify by age 7, it can be a useful practice to explore where your creative drive was blocked as a child. Did you feel free to express all of you? Was your unique genius honored? Championed? What beliefs are you still holding onto about the world and your place in it that still feel limiting?
Once you feel safe to and have the SPACE to create, you unleash a tidal wave of energy! You also become a wise (and sometimes still provocative) advisor; no longer bound by the chains of your own limited perception of what's possible, you hold that expansive creative vision for others. (just know that not everyone will be ready and willing to drop their fears and take what you are offering!)
