What are the Earth chakras and why do they need to heal?
Like the chakras in our bodies, Earth chakras are the energy centers that run through the body of Gaia, or Mother Earth. They have both feminine and masculine energies and when in balance, the whole planet thrives. The planet’s sense of security, purpose, and desire are stored in those chakras.
So why do the Earth chakras need healing? Restoring and rejuvenating the energy of the planet releases positive psychic energy to everyone, creating an atmosphere of confidence, courage, and love.
Therefore, if we spend time in these sacred and energetic places, the energy within our chakras becomes aligned with the sacred energy of the Earth chakras, for a powerful spiritual cleansing.
The Earth’s chakras are undeniably the most powerful energy vortexes on the planet. While the exact locations are sometimes debatable, there are places everyone agrees on. These are places that are highly charged with positive and healing energy. Let’s explore the seven Earth chakras circling the globe.
The Root Chakra: Mount Shasta, in California
The root chakra grounds, and when the root chakra is balanced we feel strong, safe, and committed. When the root chakra is out of balance, we feel threatened and avoid conflict.
It’s widely believed that Earth’s root chakra is located within Northern California at Mount Shasta. Rising majestically out of the local forests and meadows, Mount Shasta possesses supernatural beauty and omnipotent spiritual presence. Mount Shasta is an active volcano as well as one of the highest mountains in the Cascade Range.
It’s believed that like a volcano, the energy around Mount Shasta regulates the Earth’s energy as a source of upward flowing energy. In fact, local Native American legends say that Mount Shasta is the center of the Universe.
The Sacral Chakra: Lake Titicaca, in Peru and Bolivia
The sacral chakra regulates our creativity, emotions, and our enjoyment of life. When the Earth’s sacral chakra is in balance, it spreads the energy of joy, enabling people to manifest their greatest gifts. We feel connected to the life of the Earth, imbuing us with a sense of adventure.
The Earth’s sacral chakra is widely believed to lie within Lake Titicaca, which straddles the Peruvian-Bolivian border. The mystical lake is home to Isla del Sol, an island on the Bolivian side which was once occupied by the Incas, who believed the lake to be sacred.
Lake Titicaca embodies both feminine and masculine energy, thus representing the sexuality of the sacral chakra. The Earth’s sacral chakra is believed to regulate the evolutionary process of all species on Earth.
The Solar Plexus Chakra: Kata Tjuta and Uluru Rocks, in Australia
The solar plexus chakra emanates a higher purpose imbued with integrity, and empowers the confidence in the individual’s life path. This is the place from which we manifest.
Earth’s solar plexus chakra lies between the two massive rock formations of Kata Tjuta and called Uluru. Rising thousands of feet out above the remote Australian desert, the glorious red rock formations play a central part in the local legends of the Aboriginal populations.
The Earth’s solar plexus chakra processes the planet’s emotion, maintaining life all around the planet. The processing of the planet’s collective emotion imbues the world with wisdom.
The Heart Chakra: Maui, Hawaii
The heart chakra, which is green, the place where healing takes place. The lush, green island of Maui is naturally the planet’s center of love, forgiveness, and connectedness. No wonder the island is such a popular place for vacationers to relax and recharge. But when the island is out of balance, it closes the rest of the planet off to love.
Specifically, Maui’s Haleakalā volcano is the location of the Earth’s heart chakra, and fittingly, the energy at the top of the volcano is attuned to the same frequency as the beating human heart.
The Throat Chakra: The Great Pyramid of Giza, Egypt
The Earth’s throat chakra projects truth both outwardly and inwardly. This chakra is where the confidence to speak our truth is found. Just as the ancient Egyptians found the outlet to express their creativity in line with their concept of judgment, this is a sacred place where we find the value of truth for truth’s sake.
It’s apparent that the ancient Egyptians psychically gravitated to this sacred place to build their monuments. Just as the hieroglyphs the Egyptians left behind communicate eternal truths, so does the throat chakra of the planet.
The Third Eye Chakra: Glastonbury, England
The third eye chakra is where the Earth creates our reality through our communal beliefs and how we choose to see the world. When it’s out of balance, the world feels overstimulated and clouded with alien beliefs. Meditating at Glastonbury allows for a stillness that’s very helpful for bringing the world back into balance.
The Earth’s third eye chakra gives the world a strong sense of awareness, clear thinking, and vision, by bringing people together with both rational truth and psychic intuition.
The Crown Chakra: Mount Kailash, Tibet
The seventh chakra sits atop the Earth like a crown, connecting us to higher guidance. It connects the planet to the cosmos, opens up the world to finding meaning in seemingly random events. This place connects our planet to the Universe.
It is only natural that the crown of the Himalayas is the Earth’s crown chakra. Reaching an astounding height of 22,000 feet, Mount Kailash is the most sacred mountain in all of the Himalayas.
The crown chakra’s power is its intense spirituality, and Mount Kailash connects our humble planet to something greater than itself, because of its sacred nature.
While the Earth’s chakras are not something that people can see, it’s often something you can feel. It’s interesting that many local, indigenous cultures value these places for spiritual reasons. If you’ve ever visited any of these sacred places, you’ve felt it.
