ELEMENT FOR THE EARTH STAR CHAKRA
WHAT IS OUR EARTH STAR CHAKRA?
The Earth Star Chakra works to connect us to the powerful energies of the Earth, and to becoming into alignment with the powerful magnetic core of Gaia. This chakra works as the entire grounding point for the 7 main physical chakras in our bodies.
To better understand our Earth star chakra, please visualize the Tree of Life.
The Tree of Life and our chakra system
Our Earth Star Chakra represents the roots of the tree. This chakra dives deep into the Earth, connecting with Gaia and the energies that she possesses.
The Earth Star Chakra then connects with our root chakra, located at the base of our pelvis. This connection between these two chakras allows grounding energy to be exchanged.
The trunk of the tree represents our seven main chakras- root, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye and crown. The branches at the top of the tree represent our soul star chakra- which connects us to the divine and the upper world.
A similar representation of the Tree of Life can be seen in Shamanic practice, with the branches representing the higher realm, the truck representing the middle realm and the roots representing the lower realm.
WHERE IS OUR EARTH STAR CHAKRA LOCATED?
6-12" below your feet, in the Earth.
WHAT DOES OUR EARTH STAR CHAKRA DO?
Our Earth star chakra is our ties to past life, karmic energies, manifestations, ancestral roots, ancestral patterns and some believe childhood traumas.
HOW DO I BALANCE MY EARTH STAR CHAKRA?
Our Earth star chakra is one of the most important charka's in my opinion. It is very overlooked, but is vital in manifesting our realities, grounding our energies and creating our visions.
To properly activate our Earth star chakra, we have to first acknowledge that it is inactive. The order in which you should "work" on chakras varies. I prefer my clients start working on their root chakra, working their way up through the crown chakra, then focusing on their soul star chakra. After they feel confident with these chakras, we then work on our Earth star chakra.
The reason for this is simple. Often times, working through the 7 main chakras can make working with our Earth star chakra easier, and in some rare occurrences, doing so can activate the Earth star chakra just by processing and dealing with buried traumas.
When I meditate with this chakra in mind, I begin by grounding myself, and allowing the energy from the Earth to flow into my body. I focus on feeling this energy pulsing up through a distinct cord between my root and Earth star chakra. I focus on the energy flowing freely between these two chakras- and then slowly filling my body with Gaia's energy.
To activate this chakra, it's important that our 7 main chakras are in good health before we begin. It's not saying that you CAN'T do this if you're working on your 7 main chakras, its just going to be way easier to work on our Earth star chakra if we are in balance otherwise.
Visualize the last time in your life you were truly, genuinely happy. When you didn't feel stressed, burdened or overwhelmed with societies expectations of yourself. When you lived carefree, with little expectations of what life was supposed to provide to you.
Think back to this time, and focus on the details that surround you at that moment. How do you feel? What changed? Did you ever feel this way? And if you didn't, why not?
We bury our deep, ancestral pains in this chakra, do you see pains that you need to process and release?
This can be hard for us- because sometimes we carry a rage for what our ancestors might of had to do- but that isn't our weight to carry. Work on releasing those pains from you. This can take a long period of time, so be gentle with yourself during this time.
When this chakra begins to activate- you might feel a warming sensation, a sudden flow of energy pulsating up from the Earth or even just a slight shift in your aura- a slight magenta hue being added. This is all normal, and a good indicator that this chakra is activating.
This chakra is a hard one for people to work with, solely because we often deny the fact that they have these feelings. Mostly because of the pressures we feel from society, religion, family or friends. These pains are the deep seeded, "I don't have a problem, you have a problem" mentality.
Self care for our Earth star chakra is basically just taking care of our other chakras. Once you process the weights and baggage you have on your soul, maintaining this chakra becomes fairly easy.
Because once we process the pains, shadows, traumas and weights we have, we make a shift. We are awakened, enlightened and full of love. Yes, people will hurt us, but we will understand the importance of processing this, the lesson we are meant to learn from the pain, and we allow the pain to leave us- instead of being buried deep down; like we used to do.
Maintaining this chakra is very easy- once we make this mindset shift. Every meditation, every day, focus on connecting with Gaia. Focus on her energy pulsating through your Earth star chakra and flowing through your body. Shedding any temporary pains you have experienced in that day, and allowing Gaia to bring you back to unconditional love- through your Earth star chakra.
Doing this periodically through out the day not only is good for our mind, body and spirit- but is also amazing for productivity, inspiration, motivation and overall manifestation!
So take five minutes in the morning, enjoy your coffee while connecting to Gaia. Take your afternoon break and connect to Gaia, and as you lay in bed for the night- connect to Gaia again. Just becoming mindful of the energy that is available to us- will make manifesting your dreams, a reality.
