Earth Chakras: Introduction

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 universe.

Before we proceed any further, an important issue must be addressed: Do you believe that the Earth is alive? If so, is this a good thing? Lions and tigers and bears… do we really want to introduce another species? Humans have sought to dominate and control all other species. What if they can’t enslave the Earth? Horror of horrors – what if the Earth can not be controlled, and doesn’t favour the human race over other species? Some people fear death; others fear life. What if Earth’s experiments within the laboratory of life are not yet complete?

Trust is the foundation, or prerequisite, for communication. Does the Earth have any good reason to trust you? If so, then it becomes possible to learn the art of listening to the Earth. The Earth is not afraid; it has no secrets. Yet the enigma of life remains… Listen to the word of the Earth, and unveil the mystery of life. Trust the Earth. Harmonise your own individual purpose with the Earth's will. When trust is mutual between yourself and the Earth, then communication becomes revelatory in its power – the Opener of the Way removes all obstacles between the present situation and the Holy Grail. Find the Grail, and you will understand the purpose of the Earth.

How does the Earth communicate its information to other species? If we study the living structure of the world, as an organism, then we will know where and when to listen. It takes energy to transmit information. The greatest concentrations of energy encoded with information are emanating from the great Earth Chakras.
 
 
What is an Earth Chakra?
Geography teaches us about the continents, oceans, mountains, and rivers of the world. Geology studies stone formations – the skeleton of the Earth. These sciences investigate the more material aspects of the planetary body. The study of Earth Chakras is more akin to acupuncture, in that we are exploring the more subtle energy structures of the Earth.
 
Earth chakras are like bodily organs that are vital to the health of the world, and to all living beings dependent upon the various environments provided by the world. Each chakra serves a different function, which is two-fold:
 
1. To maintain the overall global health
2. To transmit and receive energy encoded with information.
 
There is one great Earth Chakra located on each continent, with the exception of Antarctica. (Antarctica has major subtle organs also. Their locations and functions will be described at a later time.) At the centre of each chakra is a major sacred site. From this sacred centre, the chakra expands in a circular fashion – its radius extending for hundreds of miles. If an earth chakra was operating in a state of optimum health, the approximate radius would, in most cases, be approximately 777 miles. It must be remembered that this is only an average figure, as all chakras are living organs which expand and contract, according to the complexity of conditions which may affect them.
 
Earth chakras also have depth and height. Thus, the overall shape of an earth chakra is spherical, or like a flying saucer, with a maximum circumference on the Earth’s surface, and with vertical extensions into the atmosphere, and in a subterranean direction to connect with the Earth’s deeper structures. Transmissions from the world chakras often take this same shape – sphere or saucer – as they travel through air, water, or earth.
 
The sacred site at the centre of a chakra largely defines the purpose of the world organ. Myths, legends and archetypal symbolisms traditional to the site illuminate the function of each earth chakra. Also, the regional human culture in each area takes on some of the “flavour” of the earth chakra located in its vicinity.
 
Each chakra is a dynamic vortex of subtle energies. In some situations, these forces may spin and spiral in either clockwise or anti-clockwise directions. In other circumstances, the power of an earth chakra may be directed in a straight line along what are termed dragon paths, ley lines, or song lines. These connective pathways are analogous to the human circulatory, nervous, or acupuncture meridian systems. The great ley arteries of the Earth connect one continental earth chakra to another.
 
The Earth can not be understood in isolation from the rest of the solar system. In particular, the rhythms of the moon and sun are vital. Also, the various movements of the Earth itself are important. All of these terrestrial, lunar, and solar movements have a profound effect upon the earth chakras. For this reason it is essential to always ask this question: When are the most auspicious times to interact with the various earth chakras? Each chakra has its own place in time.
 
In addition to the solar system, the earth chakras are also open to the forces of the four elements – fire, air, water, and earth. For this reason, all earth chakras have their major horizontal dimensions conjunct the Earth’s surface, where they are in direct contact with sun, air, and water. There are no subterranean or submarine earth chakras.
 
The world has a heart chakra. It also has will, vitality, and communicative centres. Each individual chakra has its own unique contribution to make to the health and destiny of the world. It is important to remember – as we locate and define the functions of the earth chakras – that their continual interaction among themselves is the key to a greater quality of life on the planet. No earth chakra acts in isolation to the others.
