In the realm of energy centres and chakras, the Alta Major Chakra remains a lesser-known gem. Closely related to Crown Chakra, both chakras are associated with higher consciousness but while the Crown Chakra is linked to universal connection and enlightenment, the Alta Major Chakra is more focused on divine purpose and intuitive insights. So, let´s dig deeper into this chakra and what it is about.
A Gateway to Divine Purpose
The Alta Major Chakra is situated at the base of the skull, where the spine meets the skull, often referred to as the “Mouth of God” due to its connection to divine inspiration and purpose. This chakra serves as a conduit for higher will and spiritual alignment, making it a vital energy centre in our quest for self-discovery and fulfilment.
It is said that the Alta Major Chakra holds sway over our behavioural responses, autonomic functions, and the endocrine system’s delicate balance with external influences. It serves as the master regulator of our hormones. It’s the nexus from which our actions, whether conscious or subconscious, originate, influencing the course of our lives in direct proportion to our level of awareness.
I didn’t have much knowledge about this chakra until I delved into Reiki. In Reiki, one of the hand positions involves being placed over the area where Alta Major Chakra resides. I began to observe during healing sessions that, when my hands were positioned there, I would receive significant insights into my client’s energy and aura field, and sometimes even glimpses into their past lives. So, it’s safe to say that we’re talking about intuitive insights here!
Balancing and Connecting with the Alta Major Chakra
An over-active Alta Major Chakra may manifest as an overwhelming sense of purpose that leads to neglecting other life aspects. One may have an overwhelming flow of memories or psychic experiences. It can also lead to imbalanced hormonal patterns.
On the other hand, when this chakra is blocked, it can result in a feeling of aimlessness, depression or disconnection from one’s higher self. One might have difficulty processing new information or gaining insights.
When this chakra is not balanced, consider these practices:
- Meditation: Focus your meditation on the base of the skull, visualizing a radiant light white or violet light. Become aware of your chakras, talk to them. Trust your inner guidance during these sessions.
- Positive Affirmations: Use affirmations that reinforce your connection to your higher will and divine purpose.
- Energy Work: Explore energy healing techniques like Reiki or crystal healing to activate and balance this chakra.
- Grounding Practices: To support chakra balance, incorporate grounding practices into your daily routine, like walking barefoot on the earth or spending time in nature.
- Working with Crystals: Citrine and Pink Quartz for blocked chakra; Moonstone or Smoky Quartz for overactive chakra.
When activated, the Alta Major Chakra can lead to a profound sense of purpose, enhanced intuition, and a more profound connection to one’s spiritual path. It can help you make choices and decisions in harmony with your higher self.

The Alta Major Chakra, residing at the intersection of our physical and spiritual selves, offers a gateway to profound insights, divine purpose, and spiritual alignment.
By understanding its characteristics, balancing it, and practicing meditation techniques, you can unlock its potential and embark on a journey of self-discovery and fulfilment.
