Where to Find the 7 Earth Chakras
Root Chakra: Mount Shasta
The earth’s root chakra is located at Mount Shasta, California. Mount Shasta is a snow-capped volcano surrounded by miles of national forest. It is a popular destination for outdoor adventurers and spiritual seekers.
Many Native American tribes and other spiritual groups believe Mount Shasta is a holy place of healing. There are many stories, legends and myths around Mount Shasta. According to legend, higher dimensional beings called Lemurians, fled to Mount Shasta and is still living there.
Mount Shasta is recognized as a place with a special energy and is worth a visit. Even if you only look at the physical side, you will realize that Mount Shasta embodies everything about being grounded, like your root chakra.
Sacral Chakra: Lake Titicaca
Lake Titicaca borders both Peru and Bolivia and is the highest navigable body of water in the world. Over 40 islands can be found throughout the lake with the biggest one Isla del Sol (Island of the Sun).
It has a rich history from the Incas and is said to be the “Birthplace of the Incas” and the “Birthplace of the Sun”. It is believed that the first Inca King – Manco Capac, was born here. God later gave him a wife and so the Inca tribe began, which later became the Inca Empire. According to Inca legend, God Viracocha came out to create the sun, stars and the first people.
To add to the rich Inca history, a temple structure was recently found at the bottom of the lake. There are more than 180 ruins of ancient monuments belonging to previous civilizations.
Lake Titicaca is recognized as the womb of the planet where you find feminine and masculine energy. As the womb of the planet (center of sexuality) in the highest navigable body of water (element of the sacral chakra), Lake Titicaca represents the sacral chakra perfectly.
Solar Plexus Chakra: Uluru
Uluru is large sandstone formations that are over 600million years old. You will find these formations in the center of Australia and it is seen as the spiritual heart of Australia. In 1987 it was declared as a World Heritage site.
Aboriginal people inhabited the area for over 30,000 years and the local Anangu people were recognized as the traditional owners in 1985. According to tradition, the rock formations were created in the beginning of time when all things were created. They call this time “Dreamtime”.
During Dreamtime, ancestral spirits came up from the earth and down from the sky. They walked over the land and created the landscapes as well as the life of all animals, plants and humans. One of the landscapes the ancestral spirits created, was Uluru and it therefor holds deep spiritual connections for the Aboriginal people and is considered sacred ground.
It is said there is great energy at Uluru and there you learn to re-energize your body and step into your own full power to reach your higher self.
Heart Chakra: Glastonbury Tor
Glastonbury Tor is a famous landmark in Somerset, England and can be seen for miles and miles. It used to be an island and the conical shape of Glastonbury Tor is natural. However, it also has a huge spiritual connection.
The terracing dates back to Neolithic times about the same time as Stonehenge was constructed. Stonehenge is also linked as the Earth’s heart chakra. The terraces of Glastonbury Tor form a maze and it is believed this guided the pilgrims up the sacred hill. At the top you will find partial ruins of a church.
Glastonbury is the site of the first Christian church in the British Isles and is also linked with the Isle of Avalon where King Arthur was buried. The Holy Grail (which was the reason for King Arthur’s quest), is said to be buried beneath Glastonbury Tor.
There are also links to Joseph of Arimathea and Jesus Christ. All have an overwhelming theme of love which is what the heart chakra is all about. The heart chakra is associated with love, compassion, giving and forgiving making Glastonbury Tor the perfect place for the Earth’s heart chakra.
Throat Chakra: Great Pyramid of Giza, Mount Sinai, Mount of Olives
Earth’s throat chakra is a combination of three places namely the Great Pyramid of Giza, Mount Sinai and Mount of Olives. All three places are located in the Middle east and when connected with a straight line, they form a perfect triangle.
The Great Pyramid of Giza is still one of the world’s biggest mysteries. It is not known why it was built or how ancient Egyptians were able to do so.
Built with lunar and solar alignment in mind as well as celestial alignment, this corresponds with the harmony of thought, mind and speech in the throat chakra.
Both Mount Sinai and Mount of Olives are prominent places in the Bible and is still today holy places for the religions of Islam, Judaism and Christianity. Mount Sinai is where God appeared to Moses and gave him the 10 commandments. According to Acts 1:11 Jesus ascended into heaven from Mount of Olives.
Many believe that the unrest in the Middle East is the “cries of a Mother” or Earth’s way of calling for help. This area is well connected to your throat chakra which symbolizes voice and communication.
Third Eye Chakra: Glastonbury – Floating Depending on the AEON
The third eye chakra shifts location on Earth depending on the rotation of Earth on its axis. The third eye is also referred to as the Aeon activation center and moves location every aeon, in other words, every new astrological age.
An astrological age lasts about 2100 to 2500 years and we recently moved from the age of Pisces into the age of Aquarius. This happened between 2020 and 2021.
The movement of the Earth’s third eye chakra will always bring it in alignment with another chakra and in the Age of Aquarius, it is aligned with the heart chakra. As the heart chakra’s earth location is Glastonbury, this is then the current location for the third eye chakra.
The third eye is associated with seeing and becoming aware and when we do that, we can shift into the frequency of love and healing associated with the heart chakra.
Crown Chakra: Mount Kailash
Mount Kailash is the most sacred mountain in the Himalayas and also known as the “stairway to heaven” or the “roof of the world”. It is a sacred mountain for many cultures including Hindus and Buddhists.
According to ancient text, mortals are not allowed to walk atop the mountain as it is believed that the top of the mountain, among the clouds, is the home of the gods. As of today, although many has tried, nobody has been able to reach the top.
Many people go on a pilgrimage to Mount Kailash and this strenuous path is a metaphor showing the journey to get to redemption through suffering. Pilgrimage also means to get from ignorance to enlightenment.
The Tibetan word for pilgrimage means “to circle around a sacred place”. Going on a pilgrimage is not so much about the destination you are trying to reach but to use the hardships of your travel to transcend to a higher reality.
The crown chakra is associated with knowledge and wisdom and spiritual connection making Mount Kailash the perfect place for Earth’s crown chakra.
Whether you believe in myths, legends or religion or none at all, all of these places are unique and worth a visit.
