Benefits of Cleansing, Balancing & Aligning the Soul Star


In the vast network of chakras that make up our energetic body, the Soul Star chakra stands as a radiant beacon, connecting us to the Divine realms beyond our physical existence. Positioned above the Crown chakra, this ethereal energy centre is often described as the "Gateway to the Soul" or the "Seat of the Soul." It holds profound importance in our spiritual journey, acting as a bridge between our earthly experiences and higher states of consciousness.

The human body is a complex web of energy centres, referred to as chakras, that play a vital role in our physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. While the seven primary chakras are well-known, there are others which are located outside of the body. In our first blog of this series, we talked about the first non-physical chakra we work with at Serene Valley Holistic Therapies - the Earth Star chakra. This chakra sits about 30 cm below the feet, you can find that blog post HERE.

The Soul Star is the first non-physical chakra to sit above the Crown chakra. In this guide, we will delve deep into the Soul Star chakra, its connection to the Crown Chakra, and our specific mindful practices and tools to balance and align it.

Before we dive in, it's essential to understand its connection to the Crown chakra. The Crown chakra, located at the top of the head, is often associated with Divine wisdom, unity, and enlightenment. It acts as a bridge between the individual self and the Universe, connecting us to higher consciousness. The Soul Star, positioned slightly above the Crown, is considered the eighth chakra, and it is the gateway to our higher selves and spiritual evolution. You can find our Crown Chakra blog HERE


As we have discussed, the Soul Star, exists in the non-physical or energetic body, beyond the traditional seven chakras associated with the physical body. It is often described as being located above the head, approximately 30 centimetres (6 inches) or more depending on your individual insight and awareness. Practice and exploration are key. Regular meditation and energy work focusing on the Soul Star chakra can help you to develop a clearer sense of its position and alignment within your individual energy system over time.

Trust the sensations you may feel as a guide. Some people report sensations like tingling, warmth, or a pulling feeling when focusing on the Soul Star chakra's location. At Serene Valley Holistic Therapies, we frequently work on the 13 chakras discussed in this blog series, and as an experienced energy healer can identify and align the Soul Star chakra, using intuitive and energy-sensing abilities to pinpoint its position, cleanse, charge and balance it.


Crystals and gemstones have a profound impact on chakra healing. When it comes to the Soul Star chakra, you can harness the power of stones such as apophyllite, danburite, moldavite, Herkimer and angelite to cleanse, charge and enhance its energy. These crystals are known for their ability to amplify spiritual growth, strengthen intuition, and facilitate a connection to higher realms.

Here I share those five favourite crystals that are beneficial for balancing and activating the Soul Star chakra.


Apophyllite is a crystal with a strong connection to the spiritual realm. It aids in meditation and helps open the gateway to higher dimensions, making it suitable for Soul Star chakra work.

In the world of crystals and energy healing, Apophyllite stands out as a powerful ally for those seeking a deeper connection with the spiritual realm. This mesmerising crystal is revered for its unique ability to facilitate meditation and unlock the gateway to higher dimensions. Apophyllite is renowned for its purifying qualities. It cleanses the energy field, removing any negative or stagnant energy that may be hindering spiritual growth. This purification process is crucial for balancing and aligning the Soul Star chakra.


Danburite is a high-vibration crystal that supports spiritual growth and enlightenment. It can assist in connecting with spiritual guides, angels, and your higher selves, aligning perfectly with the intentions of the Soul Star chakra.

It is cherished for its high vibrational frequency and its ability to open the heart to unconditional love and spiritual enlightenment. Danburite promotes emotional healing, self-acceptance, and connection with angelic realms. It can enhance meditation and assist in releasing stress and anxiety, allowing for a greater sense of serenity and Divine connection.


Moldavite, a rare green stone of transformation is of extraterrestrial origin, which resonates strongly with the higher chakras, with benefit to the Soul Star chakra. This ethereal chakra, located above the crown, connects us to higher dimensions and Divine wisdom. Moldavite's unique vibrational frequency influences the opening and activation of the Soul Star chakra, facilitating spiritual growth, cosmic awareness, and soul evolution. Its transformative energy may stimulate profound inner journeys, enhance intuition, and accelerate spiritual awakening.

Use Moldavite to cleanse and align this chakra, fostering a deeper connection to the Universe and a greater understanding of your purpose in the grand cosmic ether.

Herkimer Diamond

Angelite is a blue to white crystal that resonates primarily with the Throat, Third Eye, and Crown Chakras, and with its angelic connections is perfect for the Soul Star chakra.

Angelite also promotes deep meditation, enhancing awareness of higher realms and spiritual insights. It is often used to alleviate feelings of fear and anxiety, bringing a sense of peace and protection.'s purpose and reach for spiritual fulfilment.

Using Soul Star chakra crystals in your daily life can help you stay connected to your higher self and experience a deeper sense of spirituality. Here are five tips on how to incorporate these crystals into your daily routine:


Begin or end your day with a short meditation or mindfulness practice using your favourite Soul Star chakra crystal. Hold the crystal in your hand or place it above your head during meditation if you are lying down. Visualise the crystal's energy expanding your consciousness and connecting you to higher dimensions. This practice can help you start your day with clarity and set positive intentions or unwind in the evening and release stress.

Wearable Crystals

Consider wearing your crystal selection as jewellery as part of your daily attire. Necklaces, bracelets, or even earrings featuring crystals like Apophyllite we have suggested, but also consider Clear Quartz, or Amethyst, keeping the energy of the Soul Star chakra close to your body. This helps maintain a continuous connection to your spiritual self throughout the day.

Visualisation & Affirmations

Use Soul Star chakra crystals as visual aids during your daily affirmations or visualisation exercises. Hold the crystal in your hand and repeat positive affirmations that resonate with your spiritual goals. The crystal's presence can amplify the power of your intentions and help you align with your higher self. Use affirmations such as:

"I am connected to the Divine energy that flows through all of creation."

"I am open to receiving Divine guidance and wisdom from the universe."

"My Soul Star chakra is a source of pure, loving, and healing energy."

"I trust in the infinite wisdom of the universe to guide me on my spiritual journey."

"I release all limiting beliefs and open myself to higher states of consciousness."

"I am a conduit for Divine light and love to flow through me and into the world."

"I am aligned with my highest purpose and the greater good of all."

"I am one with the cosmic energy that unites all beings in love and light."

"I let go of ego and embrace the oneness of the universe."

"I am a beacon of Divine light, shining my unique purpose into the world."

Energy Cleansing

Before or after a busy day, take a moment to cleanse your energy field with a Soul Star chakra crystal. Simply hold the crystal above your head and visualise it clearing away any negative or stagnant energy from your Soul Star chakra and your entire energy system. Sweep the crystal around your head, down along your neck, torso, arms, along the legs and down through the feet and toes. Visualising the cleansing and clearing of any negative or stuck energy you may have absorbed during your day. This quick practice can help you feel refreshed and spiritually grounded.

Remember to cleanse and recharge your Soul Star chakra crystals regularly to maintain their effectiveness where needed. Incorporating these crystals into your daily life can bring about a deeper sense of spirituality, mindfulness, and alignment with your higher self, helping you navigate life's challenges with greater clarity and inner peace.

Close your eyes and find a quiet, comfortable space. Take a few deep breaths to centre yourself.

Imagine a radiant sphere of brilliant, sparkling white light 30 centimetres (6 inches) above your head. Visualise this as your gateway to higher consciousness.

As you focus on this luminous sphere, envision it expanding gently, like a blossoming flower. Feel its energy embracing your entire being, infusing you with a sense of Divine connection.

Imagine a stream of silvery light descending from the cosmos, flowing through your Soul Star chakra, and cascading down into your crown chakra, then further down through each of your chakras, all the way to your root chakra.

“I humbly seek your presence and guidance as I embark on a journey of spiritual awakening. I turn my attention to the radiant sphere of the Soul Star chakra, the bridge that connects me to the infinite wisdom of the cosmos.

With deepest gratitude, I ask for the activation of my Soul Star chakra. May its brilliance shine forth like a beacon, illuminating the path to higher consciousness and Divine knowledge. Allow me to open myself to the wisdom and insights that reside in the realms beyond, connecting with the highest aspects of my being.

I release any doubts, fears, or limitations that may hinder this sacred activation. Fill me with the purity of your light, cleansing away any impurities or blockages that stand in the way.

With faith and trust, I surrender to the process, knowing that I am Divinely supported on this journey. May the energy of the Soul Star chakra flow through me, guiding me toward spiritual enlightenment and a deeper connection with my true self.”

With each breath, allow this celestial energy to cleanse and purify your being, dissolving any blockages or negativity. Feel a profound sense of oneness with the Universe, as if you are a vessel of pure light.

Stay in this moment of Divine alignment for as long as you wish, basking in the serene and transcendent energy of your Soul Star chakra. When you're ready, gently open your eyes, carrying this newfound sense of connection and enlightenment with you into your day.


The 'Transpersonal' or better known as the Eighth chakra (9th if you count the Earth Star Charka which we include in this series), is considered to be the centre of your spiritual connection and higher consciousness. Opening and expanding the Soul Star Chakra can be a deeply spiritual and transformative experience.


As a Reiki Master at Serene Valley Holistic Therapies, we channel healing energy into the Soul Star to balance and expand it. Many clients are on a journey of self-expansion, working on development of their psychic and intuitive abilities. By opening and expanding this chakra, you will open channels of pure Universal energy to assist on this journey.

We recommend you seek out a qualified Reiki practitioner for a session or consider learning

Reiki yourself to perform self-healing sessions, however everyone already has access to Universal energies and can channel Reiki healing energy.

Self-Reiki is a wonderful practice for promoting relaxation, balance, and healing within yourself. Reiki is an energy healing technique that involves channelling Universal life force energy to balance the body's energy centres (chakras) and promote physical and emotional healing. Here's a guide to help you to do self-Reiki.

Create a Relaxing Environment

Find a quiet and comfortable space where you won't be disturbed.

You can sit in a chair or lie down on your back, whichever is more comfortable for you.

Consider playing soft, calming music or lighting a candle to enhance the ambiance.

Ground and Centre

Begin with a few deep breaths to help calm your mind.

Close your eyes and focus on your breath for a few minutes to centre yourself. When working on the higher chakras, create balance and flow by imagining roots extending from your body, moving deeply into the earth, grounding you. You may also use a selection of grounding crystals to assist with this.

Set Your Intention

State your intention for the session. This could be a specific issue you want to address or a general desire for relaxation and healing.

Activate Reiki & Energy Healing

Rub your hands together activating your palm chakras. You may feel them start to activate by an increase in warmth, tingling or other sensations. Place your hands on your body in various positions, starting with your head and moving down to your feet. Do this intuitively, there is no right or wrong way to do this.

You can either lightly touch your body or hover your hands a few centimetres above your skin; choose what feels most comfortable to you. In each position, hold your hands there for a few minutes and visualise Reiki energy flowing into that area, bringing balance and healing.

Use Reiki Symbols (Optional)

If you've been attuned to Reiki and are familiar with Reiki symbols, you can use them to enhance the flow of energy. Draw or visualise the symbols in the air, your palms or on your body.

Trust Your Intuition

Listen to your intuition to guide you to areas that need extra attention. Some areas may require more time and attention than others.

Clear Negative Energy

If you encounter areas with blockages or negative energy, visualise Reiki energy clearing and dissolving those blockages by sending energy of love and light.

Practice Regularly

Self-Reiki is most effective when done regularly. Make it a part of your daily or weekly routine for ongoing balance and well-being.

Remember that the effectiveness of Reiki can vary from person to person, and it may take some time to experience noticeable results. Trust in the process and your innate ability to channel healing energy. If you're new to Reiki or would like additional guidance, consider seeking instruction or attunement from a qualified Reiki Master or practitioner.


Sound Healing

Sound vibrations, such as singing bowls, tuning forks, or chanting, can be used to balance and activate the Soul Star Chakra. Listen to or create these sounds with the intention of opening and expanding the chakra.


Essential oils like frankincense, myrrh, and lavender are often used to support chakra healing. Diffuse these oils or dilute them in a carrier oil and apply them to your crown area before meditation or energy healing sessions.


Reflect on your spiritual journey and experiences. Write down your thoughts, dreams, and any intuitive insights you receive during your practices. This can help you track your progress and gain deeper understanding.

Remember that opening and expanding the Soul Star Chakra is a personal and spiritual journey that takes time and consistency. It's essential to approach these practices with an open heart and a receptive mind, allowing the energy to flow naturally and guide you on your path of spiritual growth. If you're new to energy work, I am available to provide guidance as an experienced energy healer or Reiki Master to assist you on your journey.


During meditation or energy healing sessions, imagine a beam of light connecting your Soul Star Chakra to the cosmos. Visualise this energy flowing down into your other chakras, balancing and harmonising your entire energy system.

Nature Connection

Spend time in nature to ground yourself and connect with higher energies. Being in natural environments can help facilitate the expansion of your Soul Star Chakra.

In a moment of profound spiritual struggle, a woman who was struggling emotionally found herself feeling disconnected from her inner self. For the purpose of this story, we'll call her Angela.
