Soma Chakra is also known as Amria Chakra, which means "the Nectar of the Crescent Moon". This chakra
is located within the Sahasrara Chakra
and found just above the Ajna Chakra
or the third eye. The Soma Chakra is not as well known and is veiled in the shadow of the Third Eye.
Appearance of Soma Chakra
The general Soma Chakra is illuminated as a light blue-white lotus
with 12 petals (sometimes 16), with a crescent silver. This moon
is the source of nectar for the body, which is said to flow from Kamadhenu, the white cow-faced goddess.
This chakra contains the A-Ka-Tha triangle, formed from the 3 Nadis
. This is purported to contain the combined energies of the Godhead: Lord Brahma
the creator, Lord Vishnu
the preserver and Lord Shiva
Function of Soma Chakra
This energy center is concerned with a persons connection to the angelic realms and his spiritual guidance. The proper function of this vortex is important to time management and the manifestation of a wholesome existence. If one is scattered and unable to manage lives within the hours of a day, it will have repercussions on all the other chakras, in particular the Visuddha Chakra
, leading to imbalances of the thyroid
. It is considered the creative center and the imbalanced Soma Chakra directly impacts the ability to co-create ones reality. Symptoms linked with imbalance of this energy centre are digestive difficulties, dryness of skin, stress
, thyroid imbalances and dehydration of the body or drying up of ones spirituality.
Activation of Soma Chakra

Meditating on this chakra stops the downward flow of nectar through performance of Khechari Mudra. This brings immortality in the physical body so that the process of aging is stopped. Through the union of Shiva and Shakti one enjoys eternal bliss.
