The Earth Star Chakra, often referred to as the "foundational chakra," is a lesser-known energy centre in the human body's chakra system. This chakra sits outside the physical body and is situated below the feet. This chakra serves as the anchor that connects us to the Earth's grounding energy. Although it is not part of the traditional seven-chakra system, its significance in promoting stability, balance and spiritual growth cannot be overlooked.

Serene Valley Holistic Therapies are happy to provide everything you need to know about the Earth Star Chakra. It is the first of the fifth-dimensional, transpersonal chakras. Earth Star chakra helps you connect to Mother Gaia and all that is, by absorbing negative energies and providing positive energy, helping you to find balance and calmness. The energies of the Earth Star provide the interconnectivity to the etheric and astral bodies with a sense of equilibrium. This chakra is symbolic of our place in the physical world and assists the connection between our Soul Star and the physical and etherical body. When this is out of balance, it will prevent us from being grounded and protected.

The Earth Star Chakra is believed to be a grounding point that fosters interconnectedness among all beings on Earth. It is thought to connect individuals to the planet's energy, promoting unity, empathy, and a sense of belonging to a larger, collective consciousness, acknowledging the oneness of all life.

Archangel Sandalphon is a celestial being deeply intertwined with Earth's energies and the Earth Star Chakra. As the guardian of our connection to the planet's spiritual essence, he plays a pivotal role in anchoring our presence here.

When we seek his guidance, Sandalphon activates and nurtures the Earth Star Chakra, which helps us in grounding our spiritual

experiences in the physical realm. Through this connection, he helps us harmonise with Earth's wisdom, enabling us to manifest our highest spiritual potential while remaining firmly rooted in the material world.

Archangel Metatron and Archangel Sandalphon play vital roles in Earth's spiritual realms. Metatron assists all beings on Earth and helps maintain your connection with Mother Gaia, while Sandalphon activates your Earth Star Chakra for your highest good.

"Dear Archangel Sandalphon and Archangel Metatron, overseers of all beings on Earth, I humbly seek your assistance.

Please help me maintain a strong connection to Mother Gaia, activating my Earth Star Chakra for my highest good.

May this interconnectivity provide balance, grounding, and a sense of peace.

As I stand barefoot on the Earth, I visualise absorbing the love and protection of our planet.

Let this deep connection anchor me and harmonise my soul, physical and etheric bodies.

With gratitude, I expand this bond, sending and receiving love to all inhabitants of this beautiful world. Thank you for your guidance and support."


The Earth Star Chakra is located about 30 cm (12 to 18 inches) below the feet, deeply rooted in the Earth's core. It is associated with dark shades of brown, maroon or black, symbolising the rich and solid energy of the Earth.

The Earth Star Chakra's primary purpose is to ground and stabilise our energetic system. It serves as a channel, drawing the Earth's nurturing and stabilising energy upwards, providing a firm foundation for our spiritual growth. Situated below the feet, this chakra connects us to the Earth's grounding energy, fostering a profound sense of stability, security and balance. By anchoring us to Mother Gaia, the Earth Star Chakra facilitates a harmonious connection between the physical and spiritual aspects of our existence, supporting our overall well-being and promoting a deeper understanding of our spiritual journey.

The Earth Star Chakra serves as a vital bridge between the physical realm and the higher chakras. By acting as a conduit, it allows the smooth flow of spiritual energy from the higher chakras into the physical body. This harmonious connection facilitates a deeper integration of spiritual experiences into daily life, promoting a sense of balance, purpose and spiritual growth. Through the Earth Star Chakra, the spiritual and physical aspects of our being become unified, leading to a more profound understanding of our purpose and a heightened awareness of our spiritual journey.

When the Earth Star Chakra is open and balanced, it becomes a source of profound healing and inner harmony. Its balanced state fosters a deep sense of stability, security, and connection to the Earth's grounding energy. Individuals with an open and balanced Earth Star Chakra feel more rooted, centred, and aligned with their physical and spiritual selves.

This chakra's healing influence extends to emotional and mental imbalances as well. As it draws the Earth's nurturing energy upward, it helps to cleanse and release negative emotions and thought patterns. It acts as a stabilising force during times of stress, anxiety or uncertainty, bringing a sense of calmness and clarity to the mind.

Moreover, a balanced Earth Star Chakra enhances the overall flow of energy throughout the entire chakra system, contributing to the harmonious functioning of the other chakras. By providing a solid foundation, it strengthens the connection to the higher chakras, promoting spiritual growth and a deeper understanding of one's purpose.

Individuals with a well-aligned Earth Star Chakra often experience increased self-confidence, groundedness and a greater sense of belonging in the world. They become more receptive to the beauty of life and find it easier to navigate challenges with resilience and grace.

Mindful Practices -  Balancing the Earth Star Chakra
Grounding for the Earth Star Chakra


Various grounding practices can help open and activate the Earth Star Chakra. Spending time in nature and walking barefoot on natural surfaces such as grass, rocks, pebbles, fallen trees, the beach and ocean, practicing grounding meditation are effective ways to establish a stronger connection with the Earth's energy. Hugging bare skin to a tree is a powerful grounding tool that connects us to nature's energy. The tree's grounding energy helps reduce stress, anxiety, and promotes a sense of well-being. It fosters a profound connection with the Earth, offering solace and rejuvenation to body and mind.


Helps expand your connection to all who inhabit the planet, sending and receiving love to all. Crystals are valuable tools for supporting the activation and alignment of the Earth Star Chakra. Crystals work synergistically to enhance grounding, stability, and balance within the energetic system.

Crystals like black tourmaline, obsidian, red jasper, smoky quartz, aragonite and hematite possess strong grounding properties, making them ideal for the Earth Star Chakra. Black tourmaline shields against negative energies, obsidian absorbs and transmutes negativity, while hematite promotes a sense of strength and stability.

Placing these crystals near the feet or carry them with intention by placing them into in your pocket or bag to help anchor the Earth Star Chakra's energy, fostering a deeper connection with the Earth. Place them in your workspace or at the entrance to your home for continued protection and grounding.

Using your selection of crystals, sit or stand barefoot on the grass or soil and visualise your deep connection to the Earth. Breathe into these sensations and allow your core to root into the earth, absorbing all of the love, healing and protection intentions of Mother Gaia. Connect with your inner peace, allow in the sensations and feelings of protection and security of your place on the Earth. Expand your connection to all who inhabit the planet, sending and receiving love to all.


In addition to crystals, essential oils play a vital role in supporting grounding and balancing. Cedarwood has a woody, earthy aroma that encourages stability and a profound sense of connection to the Earth. Patchouli's deep, musky scent helps to ground and centre the mind and emotions. Vetiver, with its rich, earthy fragrance, fosters a calming and grounding effect on the entire being. These essential oils can be used in aromatherapy, diffusers, or diluted with a carrier oil and applied to the soles of the feet for an immediate grounding effect.

By incorporating crystals and essential oils into daily practices, individuals can strengthen the Earth Star Chakra's energy, creating a solid foundation for spiritual growth and overall well-being. These natural remedies serve as valuable allies in fostering a deeper connection with the Earth's nurturing energy, promoting harmony and balance in both the physical and spiritual realms.

Chakra alignment is vital for achieving a balanced and harmonious energy system. The Earth Star Chakra, although not part of the traditional seven chakras, plays a fundamental role in this process. Aligning this chakra with the rest of the energy centres can lead to a profound sense of grounding, spiritual growth, and overall well-being. Regular meditation, energy healing and yoga practices can help achieve chakra alignment, including the Earth Star Chakra.


Meditation is a powerful tool for chakra alignment as it allows us to focus on each chakra's energy and bring awareness to any imbalances. To align the Earth Star Chakra, one can practice specific grounding meditations. Sitting or lying down in a comfortable position, visualise roots extending from your feet deep into the Earth, connecting with the Earth Star Chakra. By doing so, you will establish a strong foundation, fostering a sense of stability and security. Using crystals during meditation for grounding can enhance the experience. Holding your selection of crystals in your hand or place them near or around your body to amplify the grounding effects. The crystal's energy aligns with the Earth, providing stability, balance, and a deeper meditative connection.

Reiki for the Earth Star Chakra
Reiki & Energy Healing for the Earth Star Chakra


Energy healing modalities such as Reiki and crystal healing are effective means to balance and align the Earth Star Chakra and the entire energy system. As a Reiki and crystal practitioner, we channel healing energy to the chakras, removing blockages and restoring the natural flow of energy.

During an energy healing session, we direct healing energy to the Earth Star Chakra, promoting its opening and activation. This helps to strengthen the connection to the Earth and enhance grounding, stability and security. As the Earth Star Chakra aligns with the other chakras, it fosters a harmonious flow of energy throughout the entire body, promoting overall well-being and spiritual growth. Using crystal wands, I cleanse, clear and release all that does not serve you for your greatest good and then charge, revitalise, align and balance the chakras which invigorates them to spin at their highest vibration.

Working with an energy healer allows you to receive personalised and targeted healing for specific chakra imbalances. Through these healing sessions, you will experience a profound sense of healing, balance, and renewal, leading to greater clarity, emotional release and a deeper understanding of your spiritual journey.


Yoga plays a significant role in chakra alignment, including the Earth Star Chakra. Yoga asanas activate and balance the body's energy centres, promoting overall well-being and harmony. Specific grounding poses, such asTadasana, Virabhadrasana I and Malasana, work to strengthen the connection to the Earth,

stimulating the Earth Star Chakra and fostering a sense of grounding and stability.

Incorporating pranayama, or breathwork, during yoga sessions enhances the alignment process. Focused breathing calms the mind and balances the energy flow, allowing for a deeper connection to the chakras. Additionally, incorporating meditation into the practice further supports chakra alignment, promoting self-awareness and inner peace.

By regularly engaging in yoga practices that target grounding and chakra activation, you will cultivate a stronger bond with the Earth's energy and experience a profound sense of balance and alignment within their energetic system. Yoga becomes a transformative tool for nurturing the Earth Star Chakra and facilitating spiritual growth and self-discovery. You can easily start a home practice today.


The final point, however very important is cultivating mindfulness in daily life to support chakra alignment. Being present in each moment, practicing gratitude and engaging in activities that bring joy and fulfilment contribute to overall energetic balance, including the Earth Star Chakra. Spend time in the outdoors, walking barefoot, eating slowly with mindfulness or sipping your tea whilst absorbing the amazing colours, textures, shapes, sounds and ambiance of the gifts provided by Mother Gaia.

By consistently incorporating these practices into your routines, you can foster chakra alignment, which facilitates the smooth flow of energy throughout their entire being. As the Earth Star Chakra aligns with the other chakras, a sense of inner stability, a deeper connection to the Earth and a heightened spiritual awareness will be experienced. Ultimately, a balanced energy system leads to a more vibrant and harmonious life in all aspects - physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

In conclusion, the Earth Star Chakra plays a pivotal role in our spiritual journey by grounding us to the Earth and harmonising our energy centres. By nurturing this foundational chakra, we can find balance, stability, and a deeper connection to both the physical and spiritual aspects of our existence. Embracing the Earth Star Chakra's energy can bring about profound positive transformations in our lives.
