You’re probably familiar with the chakras – the invisible energy points that spin like wheels within our bodies when they’re aligned.
However, even with all of the buzz surrounding our chakras in recent years, most people are familiar with the seven major chakras: The Root chakra, the Sacral chakra, the Solar Plexus chakra, the Heart chakra, the Throat chakra, the Third Eye chakra, and the Crown chakra.
And while these chakras are crucial, we might be overlooking a few of the most magical chakras within the body: The Earth Star chakra and the Soul Star chakra.
These two chakras are sadly often overlooked, and that’s why we’re here today to shine a spotlight on two chakras that can help you feel even more grounded to the Earth below and connected to the celestial skies above.
If you’re ready to learn about these mysterious energetic fields within your body, this guide is for you! So, buckle up and get ready to have your chakras rocked.
The Soul Star Chakra
First, let’s take a look at the Soul Star chakra, located not within your physical body but rather your auric field. This chakra sits about six inches above the crown of the head, contained within the spirit.
Each chakra is associated with a certain color, yet the Soul Star’s color is sometimes debated.
Many say it’s white, many say it’s gold, but perhaps the best visualization is pure, healing light. As you start to connect with this chakra, there may be another color that resonates with you – feel free to ask your spirit and see the color pouring into your mind’s eye.
What is the Meaning of the Soul Star Chakra?
Each chakra connects to a certain aspect of our lives and ourselves.
Extending above the Crown chakra, this chakra integrates your spirit with that of the Universe, reflecting the consciousness that we all share within this realm. It represents your higher self, that part of your soul that exists within and outside your corporeal body.
The Soul Star chakra is the perfect one to connect with if you’re interested in tapping into past lives, karma, and even Akashic records.
If you’re on a spiritual journey and looking to tap into even deeper Universal truths, balancing and healing the Soul Star chakra is an excellent way to begin to open your mind and your spirit to new concepts – which can enrich every part of your life here on this Earth.
If there was one key phrase to associate with this chakra, it might be, “I transcend.”
How to Connect to & Heal the Soul Star Chakra
There are many ways to balance this magical chakra, from meditation to crystal healing and many others in between. Yet, one of the most important factors to achieving health with this chakra is to ensure that your other chakras are aligned and functioning properly – especially the Crown chakra.
Let’s take a look at a few methods that will get you started.
1. Soul Crystal Healing
As with any chakra, certain crystals resonate deeply with the Soul Star:
Try holding one of these crystals in your left hand while meditation or gently waving them all around your energetic field.
Place them under the Full Moon light to charge them with the energy of the Moon and stars above. You can work with these crystals in the manner that you prefer, which is why crystal healing is one of the most customizable methods for chakra cleansing.

Clearing your mind and connecting to your spirit is essential for healing the Soul Star chakra, which is why meditation is one of the best tools at your disposal. You can even set your intentions before you begin for deeper, longer-lasting results.
Get in a comfortable position in your sacred space, grab your favorite crystals, close your eyes, and breathe deeply. Imagine the healing glow of the Sun washing over your body and infusing your chakras with depth, wisdom, and clarity.
The Earth Star Chakra
Like the Soul Star, the Earth Star chakra is not located within your body physically but rather reaches 12 feet beneath you, rooting you in the Earth.
The Earth chakra is even referred to by some as the “super root” because its ability to ground and center you is second to none.
In fact, it acts as an anchor for the rest of your body’s chakras, helping them stay aligned and balanced – meaning that it’s crucial to keep this chakra alive and flowing.
And akin to the Soul Star chakra, some people debate the color associated with the Earth Star. Some consider the corresponding color to be a rich brown, while others might say black is a better fit.
What is the Meaning of the Earth Star Chakra?
Like the Root chakra, the Earth Star, when cleansed, helps you feel more stable, more secure, and a sense of peace in the world. It can also help them tap into the positive energy of the Earth and the Universe while clearing negativity from your body.
However, when this chakra is not balanced, you may feel out of touch with reality or disconnected from life around you. Have you ever felt like you didn’t have the resources you needed, like the world was against you or things would never turn around for the better?
If so, you may have been suffering from a disconnected, unbalanced Earth Star chakra.
The Earth Star also heightens your connection to and appreciation for Mother Nature and her healing spirit. When this chakra is aligned, you feel a yearning to be outdoors, marveling in the majesty and splendor of nature, allowing that energy to penetrate your own spirit and leave you feeling refreshed, relaxed, and at peace.
How to Connect to & Heal the Earth Star Chakra
One of the first steps to healing this chakra is, again, ensuring that the other chakras within your body are in alignment and flowing properly.
When you think of balancing this chakra, think of Earth, roots, soil, sand in your toes, sitting on a patch of grass, and feeling one with the ground below. Let’s look at a couple of methods that you can start with, bringing fast results.
Do you remember the feeling of being a kid, running carefree in freshly cut grass with your bare feet hitting the dewy, cooling surface?
As kids, we were natural masters of earthing, the practice of connecting your bare feet to the ground below. Find a spot in your favorite park and try meditating with your bare feet, touching the grass, or practicing a few barefoot Sun Salutations.
2. Earth Crystal Healing
Crystal healing comes into play once again, but with a different variety of crystals that are less ethereal and more rooted with grounding properties:
These stones have a healing quality that mirrors the energy of the Earth Star chakra, sending their rays deep down into the Earth where this chakra resides beneath you. Try taking one or all of these crystals with you, placing them either in your left hand or left pocket while letting your bare feet connect to the Earth.
Celebrating These Mystical Chakras
Each chakra in the body serves a purpose, and some might even argue that the Earth Star and Soul Star are among the most important for spiritual evolution and a connection to the Universe.
Once you’ve begun connecting to and balancing these chakras, you’ll notice a shift in your demeanor, a calming peace that carries you throughout the day – feeling your spirit rooted from below and soaring into the celestial galaxies above.
