The Chakras are an ideal roadmap for personal growth and development. In 2017 we are journeying through the Chakras and focusing on one Chakra a month. September brings us to the Earth Star Chakra, the center of Planetary Consciousness and where we grounded our light body and soul to the Earth’s energy grid. This month, the Earth Star Chakra asks you to explore your connection to Mother Earth and Mother Ocean. Are you aware that Earth is a living entity? Do you respect the power of nature? Are you a protector of Earth and Nature?
Brief Overview of Chakras: The Chakras are the main energy centers in our subtle body. They are the openings for life energy to flow into and out of our aura or electromagnetic field. There are main Chakras, minor, subpersonal, and transpersonal Chakras. The Chakras’ function is to vitalize the physical body and to bring about the development of our self-consciousness. Each chakra is associated with certain physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual interactions. Each chakra has personal growth themes, functions, and purposes. The concept of the Chakras has been around for thousands of years; but the energy coming to us from the cosmos is changing. We are receiving potent and new energies of high frequency light from the universe. The 7 main chakras were appropriate for us these past 2000 years. As we move into a new era, new chakras above and below the physical body are forming and others are waking up from dormancy to help us evolve into our new future.
The Earth Star Chakra is a subpersonal chakra and is located about 6 to 12 inches below your feet. Not in the physical body, but in the etheric body. In line with the spine. Usually seen as brown, magenta, or deep red in color. It forms a pyramid with minor chakras in soles of feet. This is the Chakra that connects you to the Planet, both land and ocean. And since more than half the planet is water, the Earth Star chakra has a large water component. This chakra brings us awareness of the Earth as a living entity. When fully functioning, this energy center will resonate with sacred energy spots; warn us of impending storms, hurricanes, earthquakes, etc.; and open communication between us and the planet. The Root Chakra grounds the main chakras within the physical body. The Earth Star grounds the entire extended multidimensional energy system; it’s the Super Root. It’s your anchor into the earth plane — your grounding cord for your Light Body. It’s where you ground yourself to the Earth’s crystalline grid and ley lines.
September 2017 Earth Star Chakra Forecast: There is much turmoil going on right now with Earth’s elements, especially with Mother Ocean. It is hurricane season. Hurricanes Harvey and Irma just brutally hit the southern US and the Carribean islands. There is flooding in Asia with the monsoons. The fire element is also strong right now as there are wildfires out West in Montana and California. Many disrespect nature and her creations with litter, pollution, and destruction. She unleashes her power to demand our respect. As the center of Planetary Consciousness, the Earth Star Chakra asks you, how do you honor and respect the Earth? Are you part of the problem or the solution? Start making choices to take better care of the Earth, to be an Earth Protector. Respect the Earth and Nature. Do not pollute, destroy, and harm her. Help Mother Earth and give her and her creations aide in time of need. Be in harmony with all of those who walk upon the Earth. Have love and gratitude for the animals, birds, flowers, trees, plants, oceans, lakes, rivers, forests, hills, mountains, earth, water, fire, and air. Give offerings to the Earth. Earth Offerings are gifts of food, drink, crystals, flowers, and herbs used to thank the elemental energies of Earth. Often these gifts are given to the Earth as part of meditation, prayer, celebrations, or ritual. Open yourself to the power of the Earth, Sky, and Ocean. Doing so will strengthen your Earth Star and your connection to Mother Earth and her powerful energies.
