EARTH STAR CHAKRA
Also called the “super root”
The earth star chakra is not a part of your physical body like the main seven chakras. It’s actually located about 30 cm below your feet, and makes up part of your etheric body. It connects directly to the core of the earth and to Gaia. The earth star chakra is a little different from the base chakra in a few ways:
It is the grounding point for your entire chakra system and etheric body.
It connects you to not only the earth but the whole of humanity as well.
It is believed to connect your past lives with your current life.
Reflecting on your past choices without drowning in the past.
Applying knowledge from your past to your present.
Increasing self-awareness of your purpose (gaining clarity on what you want to do with your life)
Activating and understanding your DNA origins (biologically and spiritually)
Bringing past life regressions and karmic patterns to the surface.
Developing an understanding of your connection with everyone and everything.
Tapping into that genuine love for the Earth and realizing that love is mutual.
Like I said before, this is the “learn from history” chakra. This is the “problem solving” energy all of us need in our lives in order to acknowledge the progress we’ve made and continue to manifest that progress. The reflection and application of the knowledge we gain from understanding who we are is how we attain a sense of purpose. We feel “awake” when purpose strikes us. Our skills and interests converge into this explosion of understanding and acts like a compass for our lives. This is how those with a talent for business and prosperity gain a monopoly. This is how artists attain fame. This is how architects and those with a talent for construction build legendary monuments to human progress. This is the energy your therapist and those who support you are trying to wake you up to. The resources needed for your well-being are there, but you have to dig deep (earth pun intended).
You need to balance this chakra if you spend your time in a high tech environment, computers, mobile phones, television etc, the electromagnetic emissions from these devices adversely affect your ability to maintain a connection with the Earth and therefore keep you grounded on this plane of existence. Some benefits from connecting consciously with the Earth Star chakra include:
A greater awareness of nature and a stronger connection to mother earth.
Intuitively know how to help heal the earth.
A strong feeling of being grounded and safe.
A healthier base chakra.
Easily dispel negative energy you may pick up throughout your day.
If you keep a healthy Earth Star chakra, with time, you’ll notice that your ability to see “the bigger picture” will increase. This should help you feel more grounded and secure. The Earth star chakra is associated with the colors brown and black. It is associated with the feet, it anchors and aligns all the chakras.
How do we take care of this chakra?
Get out into nature — Mother Earth is waiting!
Connecting with the earth itself is a fantastic place to start. After all, you have to be familiar with that which you’re trying to connect to!
Walk barefoot for awhile. Walking barefoot on Mother Earth is also a great way to sooth inflammation in the body.
Considering the earth and planet in your daily decisions can help you feel more connected, too. For those who almost never camp, or hike in the wilderness, I encourage you to give it a try.
Doing a “tree meditation” specifically can be beneficial, as it can help you visualize your roots growing down to the center of the earth, re-centering your earth star chakra.
Also, it is important to note that focusing solely on any one chakra — even the earth star — can’t solve everything. Each and every chakra requires care and attention, from the main seven in the body to the others like the earth star chakra.
Imagine how much healthier our planet and world would be if everyone connected so deeply to the earth and saw it as their rooting force?
