I have decided to talk about the lesser-known but very important chakra, the Earth Star Chakra, as my experience with this energy center has brought about unexpected and truly transformative changes in my state.
From the first day of my meditations on activating this chakra, I immediately felt a powerful flow of energy, enthusiasm, and most importantly, productivity unknown to me before. And I wanted more individuals to have the opportunity to tap into the potential of their own Earth Star chakra.
Beyond the 7 main chakras located within the body, there are additional chakras that make up our expanded human energy field. The Earth star chakra is one of the most important chakras existing outside of the physical form.
Found approximately 6-12 inches below the feet, the Earth star chakra is part of the etheric body matrix that surrounds each person. This vital energy center serves as an anchor that connects us to the heartbeat of the planet and the wisdom of Mother Earth.
When balanced and aligned, the Earth star chakra promotes deep grounding, inner stability, and a sense of being fully supported. By cultivating a conscious relationship with this chakra, we can tap into the profound grounding energies of the earth for personal healing, empowerment, and growth.

What is the Earth Star Chakra?
The traditional chakra system consists of 7 main energy centers aligned along the midline of the body, from the base of the spine to the crown of the head. These chakras regulate mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical energies within each of us.
Yet many spiritual traditions recognize that human beings have a complex energy anatomy that extends far beyond the physical form. Part of this expanded human energy field includes several transpersonal chakras located outside of the body.
Two key transpersonal chakras are the earth star chakra, positioned below the root chakra, and the soul star chakra, located above the crown. These chakras serve as conduits to celestial and earthly energies.
The earth star chakra, also known as the super root chakra, is located roughly 6-12 inches below the feet. Some intuitives believe it emerges from the center of a large, orbiting sphere of multidimensional energy.
This sphere encapsulates a person’s auric field or etheric body, which is itself electromagnetic in nature. The earth’s star chakra sends and receives vibrational frequencies through this energetic sphere.
Acting as a grounding rod, the Earth star chakra anchors the entire chakra system into the planetary matrix. It connects us to the resonant frequencies of Mother Earth.
Through this chakra, we exchange energy with the consciousness of the planet. We draw stability and nurturing directly from the limitless resource of the earth’s core.
Benefits of a Balanced Earth Star Chakra
When the Earth star chakra is balanced and aligned, it confers many beneficial qualities. This vital energy center:
- Deepened connection to the earth and nature
- Feeling grounded, secure, and supported
- Regulation and energization of the other chakras
- Increased vitality and enthusiasm
- Boosted concentration and mental clarity
- Facilitated intuition and access to inner wisdom
- Enhanced creativity and fertility
- Improved physical health and overall well-being
- Greater sense of stability and purpose in life
- Heightened sense of rootedness and belonging
- Improved ability to manifest desires and achieve goals
- Increased resilience and ability to adapt to change
- Greater alignment with one’s life purpose and passion
- Strengthened sense of self-worth and self-confidence
- Increased sense of abundance and prosperity
In short, the Earth star chakra provides us with the stabilizing frequencies we need to thrive. When our connection to Mother Earth is strong, we feel nourished and replenished.
Signs of an Imbalanced Earth Star Chakra
When the flow of energy through the Earth star chakra is disrupted, we may experience:
- Lack of grounding and disconnection from the body
- Feeling “not of the earth” and a lack of connection to the physical world
- Difficulty concentrating and mental confusion
- Forgetfulness, spaciness, and “ungroundedness”
- Anxiety, fearful thoughts, and racing mind
- Lethargy, depression, lack of motivation
- Physical exhaustion and low stamina
- Feeling unsupported and emotionally unstable
- Suffering from “brain fog” and inability to focus
- Difficulty manifesting abundance and financial stability
- Feeling lonely, homesick, or disconnected from a sense of belonging
- Sleep disturbances or insomnia
- Feeling disoriented and confused about one’s life purpose
Often this chakra becomes imbalanced when we are surrounded by artificial environments, technology, and the busy pace of modern life. Making conscious efforts to realign this center brings us back into harmony with the earth.
Difficulties in Connecting with the Earth Star Chakra and Physical World
In our busy lives, many of us struggle to live in the present and escape from the challenges we face. The Earth star chakra is the key to finding balance and connection with the Earth, but there are a few reasons why it’s difficult to connect with it and stay grounded. Let’s explore three common obstacles:
1. Escaping through the Mind
Some people spend a lot of time in their heads, thinking about the past or worrying about the future. They do this to distract themselves from difficult emotions or problems they don’t want to face. They believe that logic and thinking are the only way to solve problems and ignore their intuition and emotions.
This overreliance on thinking keeps us disconnected from the grounding energy of the Earth star chakra. We need to understand that intuition and feelings are just as important and valuable in finding solutions as thoughts are. By being present and acknowledging emotions, we can better connect with the Earth star chakra and experience true groundedness.
2. Seeking Refuge in the Spiritual World
Some people choose to escape from the everyday world by immersing themselves in spiritual practices. They spend lots of time and energy on these practices but sometimes forget to take care of their regular responsibilities.
They might find it easier to find meaning and fulfillment in the spiritual realm because it feels more exciting and interesting than dealing with the challenges of real life. However, it’s important to strike a balance between our spiritual pursuits and our everyday responsibilities.
We can find grounding by engaging fully with our real life and making positive changes, while still exploring the wonder of the spiritual realm. It’s about finding harmony between the two and bringing the benefits of spirituality into our everyday existence.
3. Rejecting the Duality of Life
In our world, we see a mix of good and bad things happening all around us. Some people find it tough to accept the negative side of life. They want everything to be positive all the time and avoid fully engaging in their lives because of this preference.
It’s hard for them to understand that life has both good and bad parts. They focus too much on the bad things happening and want to avoid being a part of it. However, to truly connect with the Earth star chakra and be grounded, we need to embrace the reality that life is a mixture of ups and downs.
By accepting this duality and finding ways to navigate and grow through both good and difficult experiences, we can attain a deeper sense of grounding and fulfillment. It’s about accepting the imperfections of life and finding meaning and joy despite them.
Overcoming the obstacles
These obstacles prevent us from staying connected with the earth star chakra and being grounded. While temporarily escaping might feel comforting, it stops us from personal growth and experiencing a fulfilling life. By embracing the present moment, accepting our emotions and challenges, and finding a balance between the physical and spiritual world, we can start our journey towards being more grounded and connected.

How to Balance the Earth Star Chakra
Fortunately, there are many effective ways to balance, energize, and attune the earth star chakra. Here are some recommended techniques:
The Power of Intention and Attention in Balancing the Earth Star Chakra
Our intentions to activate and balance the Earth Star Chakra and our attention towards this energy center can indeed be the first and most crucial step in the healing process. Intention serves as a powerful catalyst that directs our focus and energy toward a specific goal or outcome.
Attention is like a spotlight that we can consciously shine on different aspects of our being. When we focus our attention on the Earth Star Chakra, we are essentially shining that spotlight on this energy center. This focused awareness allows us to establish a connection and open up a pathway for healing and balance.
We can consciously observe any imbalances or blockages within it. They may manifest as feelings of heaviness, stagnation, or disconnection in our lives. But through our attention, we can bring them into our conscious awareness and address them.
When we notice these imbalances or blockages in the Earth Star Chakra, we are better equipped to take action. With this awareness, we can seek ways to release the stagnant energy or remove any obstacles that may be hindering the flow. This may involve exploring different healing modalities, such as energy work, meditation, or even physical activities that ground and connect us to the Earth.
Spending Time in Nature
One of the most powerful ways to realign this chakra is through direct contact with the earth itself. Walking barefoot on the soil or grass, sitting or lying directly on the ground, walking in natural settings, and immersing yourself in nature will immediately begin to balance this chakra.
Grounding Visualizations and Meditations
Visualizing the earth star chakra awakening and sending roots deep into the earth is highly effective. Picture its energy synchronizing with the planetary matrix. Listen to 639 Hz music to resonate with the earth. Feel energy rising up through your body, energizing and balancing you.
Affirmations and mantras
Affirmations and mantras can be powerful tools to balance the Earth Star Chakra. They can help shift our mindset, redirect our energy, and bring a sense of stability and grounding. Here are a few affirmations and mantras that can support the balance of the Earth Star Chakra:
1. “I am firmly rooted and connected to the energy of the Earth.”
2. “I am safe and secure in my physical body and in the world around me.”
3. “I trust in the process of life and feel supported in all that I do.”
4. “I release any fears or anxieties and embrace a sense of stability and peace.”
5. “I am worthy of abundance and success in all areas of my life.”
6. “I deserve to feel grounded, nurtured, and deeply rooted in the present moment.”
7. “I release any feelings of disconnection and align myself with the natural rhythms of the Earth.”
8. “I am open to receiving the healing and balancing energy of the Earth.”
9. “I am aligned with my purpose and feel a sense of belonging in the world.”
10. “I am grateful for the grounding energy of the Earth that supports my growth and well-being.”
Remember, affirmation and mantra practices are personal, and it is important to choose the ones that resonate with you the most. By repeating these affirmations or mantras with intention and belief, you can help bring balance and harmony to your Earth Star Chakra.
Yoga postures, tai chi, and dance help unite mind, body, and spirit. As you perform grounding poses or fluid movements, visualize energy flowing through your earth star chakra. Envision yourself as deeply rooted through this energy center.
Crystals and Gemstones
Some beneficial crystals to place near your Earth star chakra or hold during meditation include:
- Smoky quartz
- Apache tear
- Red jasper
- Black tourmaline
Create rituals that honor the earth and your connection to it. For example:
- Perform ceremonies during equinoxes and solstices.
- Create grounding mandalas from earthly materials like sand, leaves, rocks, and flowers.
- Light green or brown candles to represent the earth element.
- Dance mindfully.
- Sing devotional earth-honoring songs.
- Prepare harvest feasts with fresh, local, seasonal ingredients.
Mindfulness and Presence
Cultivate greater mindfulness as you move through your day. Notice how it feels to pass from indoors to outdoors. How do your bare feet interact with the ground? Appreciate textures, colors, sounds, and smells of nature. Allow your senses to connect you to the resonance of the planet.
Working with qualified energy healers can help balance your entire chakra system, including the Earth star chakra. Reiki, sound baths, reflexology, and other modalities can bring this foundational chakra into alignment.
Surrounding yourself with earthy colors like brown, black, red, and green can resonate with the Earth star chakra. You might:
- Decorate with these colors
- Visualize these colors flooding the chakra
- Wear these colors when you need extra grounding
Strengthening Your Connection to Mother Earth
In today’s busy modern world, it’s easy to become ungrounded and disconnected from the natural rhythms of the planet. Fortifying your Earth star chakra provides a vital anchor to stabilize your energy.
Regularly practicing the techniques listed above will help you stay rooted, focused, and secure. You’ll feel more at peace, your intuition will heighten, and your appreciation for Mother Earth will deepen as well.
By honoring your relationship with the Earth star chakra, you also become a more active steward of the planet. You naturally find yourself making choices that support the earth and all living beings.
If you feel unstable, anxious, flighty, or physically exhausted much of the time, focus on energizing your Earth star chakra. Consistent balance of this foundational energy center will ripple throughout your entire being.
Try working with your Earth star chakra for 40 days and take note of the changes in your state of being. As you fortify your connection to the earth, you’ll feel more grounded, resilient, and ready to thrive.
