In my next few blogs, I have decided to talk about our different chakras and why they are important for our overall well-being.
Chakras are vortexes of energy in the etheric body and are created when the meridian lines of the body cross over. They are the focal point of our life force energy. When we nourish them, they create balance within our lives. Some of these chakras don’t cross over with our physical body but we are linked to them and one of those is the Earth Star Chakra.
The Earth Star Chakra resonates to the colour black and white, and as we are ascending is becoming more platinum in colour and is located approximately 6-12 inches below the feet and aligns us with the beautiful heart of the Earth. It anchors our light and soul deeply into the planet, allowing us to feel supported, grounded and held on our journey. We feel deeply connected to the Earth and her elements and open and receptive to all the love healing and nurturing she has to offer.
When our Earth Star chakra is in balance, we feel a deep sense of self love and contentment. We feel completely connected and in harmony, with nature, the trees, animals, plants and all other beautiful energies that live upon the Earth. The world becomes a safe haven to live in, live life with love joy and abundance.
Also referred to as one of the sub-personal chakras or the “super root,” its most important features are its rooting and grounding properties. While it would seem like the root chakra itself already handles this (as it largely does), the Earth Star chakra goes a step further to be the anchor of the whole chakra system. The Earth star chakra connects your personal energy to the greater earthly and universal energies. This connection allows for feelings of grounding, stability, and wellbeing.
So, the Earth star chakra connects us deeply with the Earth.
Well, life can be fast paced and busy which can cause large amounts of stress and challenges. You have probably been juggling a lot recently in lockdown, including your own mental health.
If your thoughts have been feeling a little scattered or your feelings have felt that way, then you might also have been finding it difficult to focus and concentrate. Maybe you are feeling stressed and/or busy due to the demands on you and find it difficult to create and manifest positive outcomes. It is very, easy to get caught up in the whirlwind and craziness around you. The most powerful way to do this, is to align with and reconnect to Mother Earth. You may like to spend some time going for a walk or visiting somewhere in nature where you feel at peace. Sit on the land and feel yourself completely grounded and centred.
More recently you have probably also been feeling cut off from the world while we have been in lockdown.
What would help you is to reconnect to the flow of nature, where everything is more balanced. If you feel unsettled or dis-connected, then it is time to pause and feel into the energy from the Earth. While we exist here, (on Earth) she is our Mother. By connecting with her, you will be open to receive her powerful qualities. She supports every single step you take in life.
The Earth Star Chakra also encourages us to nurture ourselves. You are completely deserving of love and attention. Do things for yourself which enable you to feel your loving essence. For example, take a long bath, go for a massage, spend time with friends and loved ones (when it’s possible). Do whatever allows you to feel nurtured. Do this for yourself as it is a big part of your growth. Due to fear, we have learnt to shut off and separate ourselves from the love and nurturing that surrounds us. Open yourself and create some love in your life today.
You can also use the Earth Star chakra to create and rebirth a new way of being. You can plant seeds of new opportunity here and nurture them and you can clear away what no longer serves you.
For example, you might have poor boundaries, possibly with unhealthy relationships and struggle to speak your truth. You might neglect self-care, lack self-love and have a low sense of self-worth. You may experience a lack of abundance.
Instead, you might want to create, new boundaries and new relationships, implement a regular routine of Self Care and focus on seeing and feeling yourself to be worthy of love. You can set the intention that your life truly is abundant, seeing the positives and less of the negatives.
You can visualise planting the seeds of what you wish to rebirth or create into your Earth Star Chakra. this is a way of grounding your intentions. Give it a go, but don’t forget to clear away what you don’t want to grow in your life.
