Daily OM for July 15 – Earth Chakras

Earth Chakras

Caretaking The Soul Of Gaia

As we walk upon the earth, we walk upon a living being more similar to ourselves than we imagine. Just like us, the earth has both a physical body and an energetic body, complete with a chakra system identified by ancient mystics and modern scientists alike. Gaia, as the earth is called when acknowledged as a living entity in her own right, has her own life force and her own path of unfolding, separate from us, but including us. Human beings and Gaia are intertwined on every level, not just the physical, and an awareness of her chakras can help us to acknowledge, heal, and enable her on her path, just as she selflessly returns the favor to us.

It is generally agreed that Gaia has seven major chakras distributed evenly across her body and connected to one another via two lines of energy that intersect at various points on the earth. The first chakra is located at Mount Shasta in Northern California; the second is in Lake Titicaca in South America; the third chakra is in Uluru-Kata Tjuta in Australia; the fourth chakra resides in Glastonbury in England; the fifth chakra is at the Great Pyramid in Mount of Olives; the sixth chakra is in Kuh-e Malek Siah in Iran, and the seventh chakra is in Mount Kailas in Tibet. In addition to her seven major chakras, she has minor chakras and other vortexes of energy that are significant to her life-energy system, and all these energy centers need caretaking. Just as we can heal ourselves through our own chakras, we can heal and support Gaia through hers.

While it would be a wonderful experience to visit one of the earth’s chakras, you can always participate in loving and healing Gaia wherever you are. Maintaining an awareness of the regions in which her chakras reside can be very powerful. You may place photos of the locales on your altar, sending healing energy to each of her chakras during your meditations. As you consciously connect your energy system to her energy system, the true meaning of groundedness reveals itself—it is a relationship with Gaia in which we acknowledge our calling as the caretakers of her soul.

The Daily Cosmic Calendar for Sunday, May 20


The last week has been filled with many unusual days and a wide variety of powerful alignments. Here is another 24-hour time-span when you need to be on your toes and ready for anything. Healing forces are reinforced as Mercury makes an inspirational, 72-degree contact with Chiron (4:27AM PDT). Additional good news arrives during the monthly Moon-Jupiter union in Taurus (5:36AM PDT). Optimistic vibes are dominant, but this lunar conjunction with the largest planet in the solar system also begins a void uncertainty zone that lasts until 4:06PM PDT. It is during the void time-period that the Sun shifts from earthy Taurus to airy Gemini (8:17AM PDT) while Uranus shocks Mercury via a tense, 45-degree link (3:06PM PDT). Even though the Moon leaves void status at 4:06PM PDT, the New Moon at 1 degree Gemini doesn’t take place until 4:48PM PDT. Then six minutes later, the exact moment of the Annular Solar Eclipse reaches its culmination. This kind of eclipse indicates that a narrow ring of sunlight is visible beyond the dark circle of the Moon because the lunar orb is too close to Earth to fully block out all sunlight. Nevertheless, this eclipse can be as potent and meaningful as a total one. Southern China, Japan, the Northern Pacific Ocean and Western America (mainly Northern California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico and Western Texas) are in the pathway of this solar-lunar rendezvous. Eclipses were often feared by our ancestors because they didn’t understand the science, math and stellar geometry behind such occurrences. It is best to see today’s event as a super-duper New Moon – where you are being galvanized to take several leaps forward in your main areas of expertise as well as in favorite hobbies. Vesta in a flowing trine of 120-degrees to Pluto (9:15PM PDT) is an extra signal from our cosmic brothers and sisters that you can make a lot of progress in the business and investment realms if you are determined, disciplined and use common sense.
