The human body is connected to the Earth by a cosmic consciousness that runs throughout the planet and is represented on maps and globes by ley lines. It is through these ley lines that Earth's energy of consciousness flows, just as blood flows through the veins of a person's physical body. Every intersection of these lines is perceived as the planet's energy center or chakra. As the world celebrates International Earth Chakra Day on the 12th January, let's take a moment to understand the relevance of the Earth's major chakras to everyone (and everything) that relies on the planet for life.
What is International Earth Chakra Day?
International Earth Chakra Day is an annual event that was started in 2018 by yoga enthusiasts around the world. It honours the planet and acknowledges that all living things exist together in a symbiotic relationship that supports one another. It celebrates the importance of balancing the energies to promote health, healing, success, love, growth and willpower.
The event is marked with yoga practices and meditation around the world to bring spiritual awareness to the planet's upper chakras, which are wheel-like energy vortices that channel energies into our bodies through paths called nadis, similar to rivers of force flowing through our bodies. During International Earth Chakra Day, we bring attention to the seven chakras, one for each of the major energy centers, plus two additional ones that exist in the etheric body.
How to Celebrate International Earth Chakra Day 2022
There are many ways that you can participate in International Earth Chakra Day. Celebrate it through yoga, meditation or through chakra healing activities like Reiki, Pranic healing and other modalities designed to enrich the spiritual body. This annual event is a chance for those who believe in chakras to come together and connect with nature.
People of all religions and cultures use International Earth Chakra Day as an opportunity for spirituality and connection to others by way of their chakras. The main idea behind the event is that connecting with each other's chakras will reinforce those of Mother Earth's and heal our planet.
This is a great time to attend or organise yoga or meditation classes in your community. You can also celebrate by attending relevant events that promote spiritual and introspective personal growth. If there are no events or yoga classes available in your local area, you can take a break from your daily routine and dedicate time for personal meditation, contemplation and reflection.
It is not necessary to attend an official event on International Earth Chakra Day. What matters is that we are mindful of how we treat ourselves and others.
Why is Your Participation Important?
The chakras in our bodies connect us all to Mother Earth. The constant spinning of the planet's seven major chakras, namely the root chakra, sacral chakra, solar plexus chakra, heart chakra, throat chakra, third eye chakra, and crown chakra, will keep us connected to the Earth's internal energy fields while giving life to our physical bodies. Our chakras correspond to various endocrine glands, the health of which is determined by the amount of subtle energy that flows through our body's energy circuits.
When we focus on raising awareness about International Earth Chakra Day every year, we can help protect the delicate network of chakras within our own body and realise how important it is to take care of them while taking care of the planet as well.
As The Olgas in the Kata Tjuṯa National Park is believed to be the Earth's solar plexus chakra, there's no better time to take a walk by these dome shaped rocks than on International Earth Chakra Day.
