Additional Chakras, what they are & what they mean

After the Crown Chakra, there are 5 move Chakras that most people don’t know we have. Here are the information on them, and what you can do to harness your fullest potential with these Chakras.

8th Chakra - Time Transcendence & Connection to Spirit (Lunar Chakra)

  • Color: Silver or White
  • Located slightly above the crown chakra, about 1 inch above it. With the 8th chakra, we enter realms transcending space and time. This energy center is said to open access to parallel universes and lives; it gives access to the realm of the Akashic Records and the sphere of potentialities in the making. It is a useful center for shamanic healing and communication with spirit guides.
  • The eighth chakra links you to the energies of the moon. It is the main hub for karmic understanding and channeling that governs intelligence, communication with spirit guides, and funnels information about incarnations.

9th Chakra - Seat of the Soul (Solar Chakra)

  • Color: Gold
  • Located further above the crown chakra, the 9th chakra is said to be the “seat of the soul.” It allows access to your soul’s code or higher purpose. It can be seen as the door to archetypal energies or patterns that play an important role in shaping our destiny.
  • Associated with masculine energy, the Solar Chakra governs your ability to live your dreams. This chakra helps you to focus your will to remove blockages and give your existence purpose.

10th Chakra - Earth Connection (Earth Chakra)

  • Color: Brown
  • Located about a foot and a half below the surface of the ground. It ensures our connection with the earth. Because it works primarily with the energies of the earth, it is very physical in nature. It participates to our physical well-being and connects us to the grounding energies of the earth and our environment. Just like the first (or root) chakra, it is useful to heal any bone and bone marrow-related issues. It can also play a role in any DNA-related or hereditary issues.
  • No matter where you are, the earth chakra keeps you grounded. This chakra anchor harnesses all the pieces of the human puzzle, from DNA to bone and blood. NOTE: Depending on individual interpretation of chakra study, the location of the 8th chakra varies, but its function as grounding chakra epicenter is the same. Additional locations range form between the heart and throat chakras to just above the crown chakra. Another interpretation states the human aura is the 8th chakra; conglomeration of all chakra energy.

11th Chakra - Mind over Matter (Galactic Chakra)

  • Color: Mixture of Violet, Gold and Silver
  • Located outside of the human body, it is said to be accessible through the hands and feet. It makes up and energy field that connects of human sphere of influence to the supernatural. Shamans can use this chakra’s dimension to produce magic and influence the physical with supernatural powers. The 11th chakra emphasizes the mind as a powerful tool to shape matter.
  • Considered a channel for prophecy, the 11th chakra governs your ability to transcend space and time and allows you to access the Akashic Records, also referred to as the Universe’s cosmic “Book of Life.”

12th Chakra - Universal Unity (Universal Chakra)

  • Color: Multi-faceted, multi-colored orbs of light
  • Located on the outskirts of the 12-chakra system, it allows us to stretch beyond our common sphere of understanding into universal unity with all that is. It is said that it’s the chakra of mastery of the soul’s purpose through our human existence.
  • Known as the chakra of Universal Consciousness, the 12th chakra allows you to transcend the mundane to reach Enlightenment and commune with the Divine.

How to Open Chakras: 

When I was beginning to learn about chakras, I didn’t even know that they could be closed, let alone opened. So, I scoured the internet to find out how to open them and I was led to a guided meditation on Youtube. I don’t remember the name of the video I watched, but guided meditations have been such a big help for me as a beginner. There are hundreds of them on Youtube for all kinds of things. If you’re wanting to dive deeper in your spiritual growth and open your chakras, I suggest searching for guided meditations on Youtube. If you just like to meditate but have a hard time clearing your mind and focusing, guided meditations are great for that, too. Good luck, Travelers and Blessed Be!
