What Exactly is the 10th Chakra?

Curious about the real meaning behind the 10th Chakra? Here’s all you need to know about this energy point said to be the gateway to divine consciousness.

Achieving harmony is a central theme in chakra practice. It’s why unlocking all seven major chakras remains an important goal. But when activating a higher realm of consciousness, we’ll need to open the energy point that defines the peak of universal synchrony — our 10th Chakra.

In this article, we’ll learn what the 10th Chakra is, how to align it, and the best practices and accessories you can start using now to help you stay in line with your 10th Chakra frequency!

What Do We Mean by the 10th Chakra?

The Tenth Chakra is also known as the Universal Chakra. It’s among the five higher frequency energy points (known as the outer chakras or dimensional chakras) within the 12 Chakra System.

  1. Chakra 0 / Earth Star Chakra or Earth Chakra
  2. Root Chakra
  3. Sacral Chakra
  4. Solar Plexus Chakra
  5. Heart Chakra
  6. Throat Chakra
  7. Third Eye Chakra
  8. 8th Chakra / Crown Chakra
  9. 9th Chakra / Soul Star Chakra
  10. 10th Chakra / Universal Chakra
  11. 11th Chakra / Galactic Chakra
  12. 12th Chakra / Divine Gateway Chakra

The outer chakras in the 12 Chakra System are part of our divine bodies as opposed to the seven major chakras which belong to our etheric bodies. The Etheric system relates to the energy network in our physical bodies but it is also integrated with our emotional body (known as the Astral Body), as well as the Causal or Mental Body. 

The Tenth Chakra is associated with divine creativity and synchronicity of life not limited to our physical realm. This allows anyone who has successfully unblocked it to experience an inexplicable sense of inner balance and harmony, which is the most common among 10th Chakra opening symptoms.

What Happens When We Open the Universal Chakra

It’s said that by activating the 10th Chakra, you can tap into skills and knowledge that either lay dormant within you or those you possessed in a previous lifetime. By aligning your Tenth Chakra, you break down barriers which previously prevented you from accessing this precious insight, enabling you to achieve your full potential. 

When you begin to work on this chakra you may find yourself uncovering new talents or passions that you didn’t realize you had. 

The Universal Chakra combines both masculine and feminine energy – that’s why when we balance this chakra, we can achieve a harmonious state where all aspects of our being are synchronized and balanced. 

The Tenth Chakra is often compared to the Heart Chakra or Anahata Chakra. The Heart Chakra unites all the energy from the 6 other major chakras – the self compassion and love of the Heart Chakra is integral to the health of all the other chakras. 

Just like the Heart Chakra, the Tenth Chakra brings together and harmonizes all the energy from all the other Outer or Spiritual Chakras.

What Color Is the 10th Chakra?

  • Feeling stuck and restless

Essential Oils for the 10th Chakra

Essential oils have been proven to stimulate the brain, boosting our mood and promoting physical relaxation. If it’s about boosting your creativity to harness your dormant creative genius, then starting with peppermint or jasmine oils can give you that kick to bring back the motivation.

To achieve balance with your Tenth Chakra, you can also try bergamot oil. Its unique zesty scent increases positive feelings. You could also combine it with ylang-ylang oil which is known to decrease fatigue.

You can also add a couple of drops to your bath or to a massage oil to aid in relaxation, or even light a chakra candle

Crystals for the 10th Chakra

Precious gemstones and chakra crystals are known to have mystical healing abilities which can help with all kinds of ailments. It’s why many energy healers practitioners wear chakra jewelry regularly. 

Clear quartz and blue lace agate are great choices for balancing cosmic energy and enhancing mental clarity – both of which are necessary for stabilizing your Universal Chakra.

Selenite is another popular pick for the Tenth Chakra due its superior cleansing properties. If you suspect external factors and negative energies are contributing to your chakra’s misalignment, then this stone can be a great tool. Use it alongside Sugilite – a precious stone known for inspiring spiritual intuition.


Unlocking the Universal Chakra isn’t a walk in the park, it requires a lot of patience and introspection but with regular practice you can step closer to harnessing the universe’s abundant creative energy.
