Just as the physical body has seven (or
more) identifiable energy centers, or swirling vortices of subtle
energy, so does the planet have chakra centers that govern her
health and act as a reflection of her energetic evolution.
Hiroshimi Motoyama developed a
way to measure the chakras of the human body - to give them a
scientific basis, when they were considered purely metaphysical for
centuries, though saints, sages, monks and yogis knew of their
existence long before they were recognized by scientific
"There are many cultures that
conceive of an energetic system which runs the body, but the
Yogic Chakra System is said to be 4000-5000 years old.
Chakra translates loosely to mean
‘wheel’ from Sanskrit, but it more accurately describes a vortex
of rotating energy. Some chakra systems contain twelve primary
chakras, others fewer, but they refer to a map of the energy
circulating through the body, primarily through the spinal

endocrine gland that is responsible for regulating hormonal
reactions in the body. The chakras also act as translators of
They assimilate energy from
surrounding influences, including your own emotions and thoughts
and the chakras of others. In the yogic conceptualization of the
chakra system there are seven primary energy chakras."
Each chakra has its own bandwidth of
energy, and it governs the perspective of each person at that
The earth’s chakras are very similar.
They are reflective of the root all the way to the crown. The
Chinese/Japanese conceptualization of the chakras or

Kabbalistic, but they weave into a very cohesive understanding
of the energy body.
Such is also the case with the
vortices or chakras.
“The Earth is a living being, with its own
creative, evolutionary will, and with its own methods for enacting
that purpose. If we look at nature, we discover that design and
innovation - the architect and the inventor - are at work.
What is the goal of this effort? Alone,
among the planets in the solar system, Earth is the matrix for life.
What are the maximum potentialities for life?
It is the true will of
the Earth to find the answers to this question, and to communicate
these results to other laboratories of life throughout the
The same way that kundalini energy
weaves its way up the spine from the root of the spinal chord in a
human being, in a DNA-like fashion,
energy also rotates throughout the planet.
Here are the most commonly accepted
geographic locations of the planet’s chakra system and what they
represent spiritually. (It is thought that the chakras can shift

considered the root chakra of the planet. (Some also say
this is the 5th chakra of the planet.)
This energy center is
considered primal and ‘base.’
Here is where the universal
life force is considered to gather before it becomes
life - and is representative of the geysers which rush
to the surface with energy the same way that kundalini
energy is thought to rush to the crown or pineal gland

Titicaca Peru/Bolivia is considered the 2nd
chakra of the planet.
The Plumed Serpent - found
in many South American myths is representative of the
kundalini energy rising to the sexual chakra of the
Also called the rainbow
serpent, this center has some of the most ley crossroads
or ley lines on the planet, second only to Bali.
It is where our primal
energy starts to ‘birth’ itself, quite literally into
form. Some say that it is through this chakra that the
earth overcomes entropy.

the Solar Plexus Chakra
Uluru, otherwise known as
Ayers Rock in Australia along with Kata Tjuta are the
home of the earth’s 3rd chakra.
This huge, monolithic rock
is in the Northern Territory of Australia. This is where
dreamtime legends arise from the
life revolves around the Tjukurpa (sometimes wrongly
referred to as the Dreamtime).
To the Aboriginal people,
this is the ancestral period of when the world was being
formed. Kata Tjuta is considered Uluru’s sister rock

sentient beings on this planet - to open our hearts to
heal the earth and allow her to embody her rightful
place as a peaceful, loving satellite in space.
Interestingly, this is an
area known for high levels of crop-circle sightings that
exhibit magnetic abnormalities.
the Throat or Vissuddha
The throat or voice of the
planet is the located near the Great Pyramids near Mt.
Sanai and Mt. Olives in the Middle East.
This is the one chakra that
does not exist at a ley line.
It is the exact center of
the earth’s land mass as it currently is configured.
Modern day turmoil in the
Middle East is considered to be ‘the cries of the
mother’ or the voice of the planet calling for help.
the Pineal Glnd or Third Eye
This chakra can shift - it
is called the Aeon activation Center. Now it is
considered to be in Western Europe but will likely move
over the next several thousand years.
This chakra is the one that
opens portals and allows extra-dimensional energy to
enter this world.
Just like our pineal gland
allows us to recognize other dimensions and realities,
so does the 6th chakra of the earth.

that resides at the crown chakra of the planet.
Just as our own crown
connects our will with Divine will, so does Mt. Kailas
connect the planet with her spiritual destiny.
