In Sanskrit, the word “chakra” means “disk” or “wheel” and refers to the energy centers in our body. These wheels or disks of spinning energy affirm potent qualities we can all access when we feel balanced and at peace with ourselves.
Both the human body and the earth have several connected systems that support life. The respiratory, digestive, reproductive, musculoskeletal, nervous, and immune systems play essential roles in human life. The planet's strength relies on the balance of its air, water, land, and life systems, so it will come as no surprise to hear earth also having a chakra system. Like veins, the world has what is known as energy circuits (commonly known as ley lines), a planetary grid system beneath the ground connecting each earth chakra to the most majestic structures around the globe, releasing its spinning wheel of energy in these extraordinary locations.
The Root Chakra
Location: Mount Shasta, North Carolina, USA
The Root or Muladhara chakra is the first of seven chakras. The foundation of the chakra system and located at the base of the spine. When this red chakra is in balance, we experience feeling safe, grounded, strong, and stable. Conversely, when imbalanced, the root chakra will have the opposite effect, creating feelings of uncertainty, instability, unsafe, and contributing to specific health issues in and around this location of the body.
All chakras are equally important; however, the base is where it all begins—associated with survival, health, abundance, connecting and grounding ourselves to earth, and positively moving through life. Working with and clearing our root chakra from negativity will help clear the way for a more abundant life.
Native Americans believe Mount Shasta's volcano could be the center of the universe or even the creator's birthplace. According to many visitors, the energy radiating in this area is palpable. Mount Shasta is legendary. According to ancient civilizations, when the island of Lumeria was on the verge of sinking, the Lumerian people took refuge in this area, building an underground city named Telos. Tales remain of residents from Lumeria still living deep within Mount Shasta, with locals stating stories of strange lights on the mountain, unusual visitors to nearby towns, unexplained tunnels, and UFO activity. People have been left with a new sense of peace and spiritual awareness having visited this beautiful location, having never believed in spirituality before. They say Lemuria was where it all began. There is no denying that Mount Shasta has a unique magical flare that radiates peaceful, harmonious energy to those lucky enough to visit.
Location: Lake Titicaca, Peru / Bolivia
The Sacral or Svadhisthana chakra is the second of the seven chakras located below the navel at the center of the lower abdomen. The orange chakra is known as the center of creativity, desire, sexuality, and sexual emotions. Healthy energy is deposited in this area, ready for future use. If the sacral chakra becomes imbalanced, we may feel lethargic, indecisive, unknowingly self-sabotaging ourselves with moving forward. Working with and clearing our sacral chakra from negativity will give us a sense of joy, fulfillment, and accomplishment.
Lake Titicaca is the highest navigable lake in the world, lying partly in Peru and partly in Bolivia. Once at sea level, this magnificent area is currently 13,5000 feet above the Pacific Ocean. Four hundred and sixty miles long and up to one hundred miles wide. The lake was once the home of the Incas, a small tribe that steadily grew in power and considered the lake highly sacred.
Spiritual energy lines run beneath this extraordinary lake linking both masculine and feminine energies to the sacral chakra. Lake Titicaca is known to balance sexual energies building a sacred gateway to birthing new ideas. The womb of the planet, just like its water element, the energy radiating from Lake Titicaca may allow thoughts and desires to flow and birth, as well as maintaining a healthy outlook on relationships and material abundance.
Location: Uluru / Ayres Rock, Australia
The Solar Plexus or Manipura is the third of the seven chakras located just above the navel at the center of the abdomen. The yellow chakra centers personal power, wisdom, healing, ambition, desires, and emotions. A healthy solar plexus will enable us to strive through life, overcome challenges in a positive way, become inner warriors allowing us to feel our internal energy and work with it. An unhealthy solar plexus will leave us feeling resentful, angry, and unable to work out how to overcome certain challenges in life. Working with and clearing our solar plexus from negativity will leave us feeling empowered, focused, and ready for anything.
Urulu means Island Mountain. Rising several thousand feet out of the Australian desert, these rock formations play an important spiritual role to local aboriginal groups, particularly the local Anangu tribe, considered Urulu's traditional landowners today. The Anangu people belong to the oldest culture known to man dating back 60,000 years. They believe that their culture has always existed in Central Australia and that this landscape was created at the beginning of time by the travels of great ancestral beings. Uluru and Kata Tjuta are said to provide physical evidence of these ancient events and have been used for traditional ceremonies and rites of passage for over 10,000 years.
A fascinating tale from the aboriginal elders states many thousands of years ago, pleadians (star beings) came to earth and embedded a "magic box" in Urulu. A gift from the stars that will one day be activated by eighty thousand pure heart humans. Once the magic box is activated, it will create a global healing and great awakening.
Location: Glastonbury, England
The Heart or Anahata chakra is the fourth of the seven chakras located in the center of the chest. The green chakra is all about love, compassion and respect not just for others but most importantly for ourselves; when balanced, this is how we should feel. If this chakra becomes imbalanced, we may feel disconnected from ourselves and others, feel lonely, anxious and may even give our love to the wrong types of people. Working with the heart chakra to remove any negativity will bring a sense of warmth, happiness, and a feeling of content.
Glastonbury Tor. Chalice Well. View of the sun setting from the tor (albeit very cloudy)
I am fortunate enough to have visited this beautiful area not so long ago. Having felt a little apprehensive of what to expect and whether I was spiritually advanced to feel the energy so many spoke of, I was automatically put at ease on our arrival. There is an instant calmness to the area, and the people here are simply lovely.
Our first visit, the Tor. Having had many spiritual downloads regarding the Tor and the main reason for my visit, I have to say it took my breath away. A little overwhelmed (and out of breath), I sat on the grass and drank in the misty yet sunny morning views with a strange yet peaceful feeling of coming home. Not only could I feel the energies, but I could also sense ancestors from long ago, almost picturing them going about their day.
A visit to the Chalice Well at the base of the Tor was a must. Sitting on the stoned wall beside the well lid, I closed my eyes and lost myself to the healing energy I felt surrounded this sacred site. Having opened my eyes a few minutes later, perched to my left was a beautiful little robin sitting beside me on the wall. The town and the abbey are equally beautiful, both also having a peaceful vibe about them, but for me, the Tor and Challice Well is where I truly felt a connection.
I have no doubt Glastonbury is the heart chakra of our beautiful planet. I have never experienced anything like it; those memories will forever be etched on my heart.
Location: Egypt & Israel
The Throat or Vishuddha chakra is the fifth of the seven chakras located at the center of the neck. The blue chakra is the source of our communication and creative expression, physically and mentally. An imbalanced throat chakra enables us to lose focus, lose faith within ourselves, creating unnecessary stress. Working with the throat chakra to remove negativity will develop a sense of freedom, expressing truths and the willpower to live life to the fullest.
Mount Sinai, The Great Pyramid, Mount of Olives
The Earth's throat chakra is located between three of the most well-known sacred sites on the planet, the Great Pyramid of Giza, Egypt, Mount Sinai, Egypt, and The Mount of Olives, Jerusalem. The ancients built the Great Pyramid on the Giza Plateau due to its location and potent energy vibrations, which just so happened to be the center of the Earth. There is much speculation about why the pyramids were built and what they represent; however, having read Anna Jesus' Grandmother, by Claire Heartsong, she writes the pyramids were used for spiritual initiations where Jesus himself is alleged to have visited.
As for the other two locations, Mount Sinai, where Moses was given the ten commandments, and the Mount of Olives, where Jesus was seen ascending to heaven, interestingly when all three of these sacred sites are aligned on a map, they form an almost perfect right triangle. I could be here all day speculating; however, I remember reading that a triangle represents manifestation, enlightenment, revelation, and a higher perspective. So in regards to chakras and these miraculous sites, I think this fits pretty well.
Third Eye Chakra
Location: Possible Glastonbury
The Third Eye or Anja is the sixth of the seven chakras located above the eyebrows in the center of the forehead. The Third Eye chakra takes us beyond the physical world, inspiring us to focus on our psychic gifts. If the third eye chakra becomes imbalanced, we can become unbalanced; negativity from the outside world can create a fog, ensuring our abilities go unused. Working with the third eye chakra to remove negativity will create a perfect balance, enhancing our psychic senses and seeing the world clearly, for the beautiful planet it is.
The Tor, Glastonbury, England
The Third Eye chakra has no permanent geographical location and is the only earth chakra gifted to change locations. Also known as the aeon activation center, the third eye chakra is believed to relocate every aeon or new age. According to astrology, we are currently in the Age of Aquarius, which determines the third eye location to align with the earth's heart chakra based at Glastonbury, England.
Location: Mount Kailash, Tibet
The Crown or Sahasrara chakra is the seventh of the seven chakras located at the top and center of the head. The violet chakra is the center of spirituality and enlightenment, facilitating wisdom flow to us from the universe. An imbalanced crown chakra may leave you feeling disconnected from spirituality, searching for answers to spiritual questions. Leaving us wandering through life without a purpose. Working with the crown chakra to remove negativity will create a spiritual connection to the universe, God, connections to angels, and much more.
Reaching almost 22,000 feet, Mount Kailash has come to be known as the stairway to Heaven. This beautiful mountain is highly sacred and is known to hold significant power; its very tip of the mountain is regarded as the central point of the cosmos' rotation.
Mount Kailash is the center of a worldwide system that connects mystical sites and energy sites worldwide, including the Pyramids of Egypt, the Pyramids of Mexico, Easter Island, Stonehenge, and the North Pole... which constitute the global energy grid system.
A truly magnificent site to close with.
