Have you ever felt drawn towards a certain geographic location and felt you should visit there at least once in your lifetime?
A lot of the time these places, whose pictures you may or may not have seen in books or the internet, appear in your dreams, too.
So, what is this connection some of us have with these places?
Some people believe it may be caused by some past life experiences. I'm neither accepting nor refuting this claim.
But there is another line of thought that relates this sort of attraction to the chakra system.
Yes, you may already be familiar with the chakras, which are vortexes of energy running through your subtle body.
When these chakras are kept in balance, that's when you experience a connection with your higher self, of course, in addition to having a healthy body and mind.
You may be aware that this chakra system runs through all humans and animals as well. But did you know that these energy centers run through our beloved planet, too?
That's right! Mother Earth also has the same core seven chakras that we do, in addition to hundreds of other less important chakras that run throughout her land.
These chakras are called earth chakras, and in this article, we're going to take a look at where these core seven earth chakra points are located.
What Are The Earth Chakras?
Earth chakras are nothing but locations of high-energy vortexes. These energy reservoirs are located throughout the planet.
If you draw up an earth chakras map, you'd find that the seven core chakras are located laterally, spread across continents.
The intriguing part of these earth chakra points is that in many of these locations, you're likely to find megalithic structures, temples, churches, and other pilgrimage sites built by ancient civilizations.
The more we study these places, the more it becomes evident that centuries ago, these ancient civilizations knew how to harness the strong energy present in these vortexes to reach the higher power.
If you feel drawn to any of these places, it's more like a calling. It means your specific chakra is willing and ready to draw in more energy from Mother Earth's reservoirs, which will ultimately lead to realizing your higher self.
So, where are these seven earth chakras located? Can you visit them to heal your chakras? Let's look at each of them in detail.

1. Root Chakra - Mount Shasta
In humans, the root chakra, also called Muladhara, is located at the base of the spine. On our Mother Earth, it is located in California!
This energy vortex is present within a dormant volcano called Mount Shasta of the Cascade Mountain Range. For centuries, people from all over the world have been attracted to this sleeping volcanic mountain.
Native Americans considered this mountain as a holy place long before new-age travelers even began to put this place on the world map. They thought of this place as the center of the world, and rightly so.
The function of the root chakra is to provide stability. And so, Mount Shasta, as believed by thousands of travelers, is the place where you go to ground yourself, drawing healing powers from the base of the earth.
Aligning your root chakra with this location can help you maintain your steadiness and put more faith in the complete harmony that surrounds you.
2. Sacral Chakra - Lake Titicaca
At the border of Peru and Bolivia lies Lake Titicaca, the largest lake of South America.
One of the reasons it attracts visitors is that it has exceptionally calm waters. When you sail through it, you feel one with the lake as its water hardly provides any resistance.
The surroundings of the lake are believed to have been inhabited by the ancient Inca civilization, who, of course, considered its waters to be sacred.
There is also a submerged temple under the lake, which goes on to prove that our ancestors considered this lake to be a holy place.
The lake is the energy vortex of creativity, much like the sacral chakra present in humans. Unleash your ability to produce and create by connecting with the serene waters of the sacral chakra of Mother Earth.
She happens to oversee her procreation across her lands and waters by harnessing the energy present in this vortex.
3. Solar Plexus Chakra - Uluru (Ayers Rock)
If you're Australia bound, Uluru is the rock structure you'd want to visit if you wish to discover the solar plexus chakra of the earth.
The solar plexus chakra is about life, it's about understanding where you came from.
And when you visit the Uluru structure followed by a calling, you might very well be on the path to realizing this great wisdom.
You can finally feel how you manifested and how you're connected to the rest of the world.
An interesting fact about the earth's solar plexus is that it's a dual chakra. That means it's spread across two such rock structures, where one of them is Uluru and the other one is Kata Tjuta.
These rock formations are about 18 miles apart and are preserved within Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park in central Australia.
The aborigines have revered these structures as holy for centuries. They believe, perhaps rightly so, that this rock is a living thing and they were all born from it.
Even today, the aborigines feel saddened if they see travelers climbing atop Uluru.
4. Heart Chakra - Stonehenge
Stonehenge is undoubtedly one of the most intriguing structures of the UK. It's also one of the chakras of Mother Earth, and that too, one of the most important ones, the heart chakra.
Not just Stonehenge, but the heart chakra spreads across Glastonbury in the UK, too. They say that the Holy Grail is hidden somewhere at Glastonbury.
It could be true. No one knows for sure.
But what people do know that this place has been shrouded in mystery for centuries, ever since King Arthur's times.
This one's also a dual chakra with the other part falling in the town of Shaftesbury.
Being drawn to Stonehenge is quite common, especially those who make compassion their way of life.
Visiting the earth's heart chakra can bring about harmony within your heart and help you heal through compassion and kindness.
When your heart chakra is thus healed, you can reach out to the supreme power through your ability to love and forgive.
5. Throat Chakra - Pyramids
Some of the most mysterious structures of the world are inarguably the pyramids of Egypt.
There is hardly anyone who would not find the history and the science behind the pyramids mystical, almost supernatural.
The ancient Egyptians were masters of sacred geometry, and are even considered to have had "help" from extra-terrestrial beings during the construction of some of the largest structures, such as the Great Pyramid of Giza.
The said pyramid and Mount Sinai of Egypt are, therefore, no wonder, one of the seven earth chakras. These sites, along with Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, form the throat chakra, which is also considered to be the voice of the earth.
Yes, the throat chakra represents the inner voice in humans. It enables us to express and communicate. And similarly, Mother Earth expresses herself through her throat chakra, too.
A lot of spiritual practitioners unanimously believe that the constant turmoil that the Middle Eastern region experiences, is a sign of Mother Earth crying out to let humanity know that things are not going as they should.
The earth's throat chakra calls out to those people whose etheric body's throat chakra resonates with it and can heal themselves as well as the earth.
6. Third Eye Chakra - Moving
Your third eye chakra is about your sixth sense, your intuition, that quirky feeling you get, or the déjà vu that’s quite common. Although this chakra is located at a fixed place in a human etheric body, it’s not so simple for Mother Earth.
According to astrologers, the third eye chakra moves to a different location within our planet every eon, which is roughly 2100 years.
Almost every time that it moves, its location corresponds with one of the other major chakras.
At present, it’s known to exist where the earth’s heart chakra is, in Europe. Every eon, the location of the third eye chakra bears significance relevant to that particular age.
The fact that it now coincides with the heart chakra tells us that the world has had enough of fighting and wars, and now’s the time for some healing through compassion.
It’s no wonder then, that those who feel a pull towards Stonehenge in this current era, not only are individuals who’d like to connect with the world through compassion but are also possessed of a strong sixth sense.
7. Crown Chakra - Mount Kailash
Sitting atop your head, like a crown, is the crown chakra, also known as the Sahasrara. It's the chakra that enables you to connect to the higher realm.
And so, when it comes to Mother Earth, where do you think the crown chakra would be located? It must be atop the highest mountain range, isn't it? That's right. The earth's crown chakra lies at the top of Mount Kailash in the Himalayas.
The mountain is more than twenty thousand feet above sea level and has been considered one of the most sacred pilgrimage sites of the world.
So holy is the mountain that many Tibetans, where the mountain belongs, are deeply offended at any attempts by mountaineers to scale the peak.
Kailash is often considered the home of Lord Shiva in Hindu mythology, who signifies the all-powerful divine masculine energy.
For thousands of years, people from all over the world have set foot on this Mountain hoping to cleanse their sins, rise above their worldly emotions, and connect to the supreme being.
If Kailash is your calling, you should know that you've achieved a state where you're about to provide an enlightening experience to your soul by resonating your crown chakra with that of Mother Earth.
Listen to Your Calling
Some people travel for fun, some for knowledge, some because they don't know what else to do with their time and money, and some travel because a place beckons them.
The earth's pull is too strong to neglect. So, if you feel that any of these sacred places is constantly attracting you for reasons you cannot understand, listen to the calling.
More often than not, Mother Earth is trying to tell you something through her seven chakras, something you need to heed to heal yourself and heal her as well by reaching out to her high-energy vortexes.
Book your tickets, go to your destination, and once you're there, you'll know why you're there.
