The 9th Chakra – Everything You Need to Know

Discovering your inner power doesn’t have to be a daunting process. One of the most accessible tools for unlocking our hidden potential is the 9th Chakra.

It serves as the doorway between our physical bodies and higher planes of consciousness – connecting us more profoundly with truth, wisdom, oneness, and bliss.

In this article, we dive into what exactly the 9th chakra is, how it works, and the different ways you can unlock its energy within yourself so that you can start seeing life through a new lens!

What is the Ninth Chakra?

We traditionally think of seven major chakras (the Root Chakra, Sacral Chakra, Solar Plexus Chakra, Heart Chakra, Throat Chakra, Third Eye Chakra, and Crown Chakra, however there are believed to be many more chakras (up to 114 according to some chakra traditions).

In the 12 Chakra System, there are 5 more chakras in addition to the 7 major chakras. The Earth Star Chakra sits below the Root Chakra (or Base Chakra) and the Soul Star Chakra, Universal Chakra, Galactic Chakra and Divine Gateway Chakra sit above the Crown Chakra. They are sometimes known as the outer chakras or spiritual chakras because they are beyond our physical body:

  1. Earth Chakra (this is sometimes called Chakra 0 which affects the numbering of the other chakras)
  2. Root Chakra
  3. Sacral Chakra
  4. Solar Plexus Chakra
  5. Heart Chakra
  6. Throat Chakra
  7. Third Eye Chakra
  8. Crown Chakra
  9. Soul Star Chakra
  10. Universal Chakra
  11. Galactic Chakra
  12. Divine Gateway Chakra

The 9th Chakra, known as the Soul Star Chakra is the highest and most powerful of all major energy centers in the human body. It is often referred to as the “Seat of the Soul”.

The 9th Chakra provides us with an opening to higher realms of consciousness and allows spiritual energy to flow freely through our subtle bodies. It is where we can connect deeply with our soul’s purpose and discover a greater understanding of who we truly are as individuals.

The 9th Chakra works by connecting us more deeply with divine wisdom, unconditional love, and higher truths from beyond our physical realm. When this gateway opens up, a new level of awareness emerges within us that often leads to profound insights into reality and life itself.

This chakra can also help us to better process the inner guidance we receive and we can use it to make decisions in our lives that reflect this higher wisdom.

Where is the 9th Chakra Located?

The 9th Chakra is located outside the physical body, above the Crown Chakra (or 8th Chakra in the 12 Chakra System) which is above our heads.

What Color is the 9th Chakra?

The 9th Chakra is usually associated with the colors gold or green.

What is the Ninth Chakra Responsible for?

The 9th Chakra is responsible for connecting us to our higher purpose and divine wisdom. It helps us to access inner guidance, unconditional love, and profound insights that are beyond the physical realm.

It is thought to connect us with the energy of the moon. By unlocking this chakra’s energy, we can open up a doorway between ourselves and a greater source of spiritual realm and personal power.

What Happens When the Ninth Chakra is Unbalanced?

When the Ninth Chakra, often called the Soul Star Chakra, becomes unbalanced it can affect both our human body, spiritual body and our mind in unexpected ways. An imbalance in this chakra set can manifest physically as exhaustion, digestive issues, insomnia. Emotional and spiritual issues include relationship difficulties and a lack of purpose and intuition. 

To restore balance it is recommended that we practice conscious breathing and grounding exercises like meditation, visualization, energy healing, or chakra healing with crystals. Doing so can open us up to clearer communication with our spiritual side, so we can be more present in our lives.
