The Crown Chakra

Hello and welcome! Our recent discussions have been geared towards our chakra system and how it works. Today I'm going to provide you with some information about the Crown Chakra, the last of the main chakras that we will be going over. As mentioned earlier, there are hundreds if not thousands throughout the body, but these 7 main chakras are most commonly examined.

The Crown Chakra, or Sahasrara in Sanskrit, is violet or white in color, and is located at the top of the head. It correlates with the pituitary gland, central nervous system, and cerebral cortex. The crown is all about wisdom, knowledge, and enlightenment. It represents our ability to be fully connected spiritual beings. When this chakra is open, you experience awareness of your world, with a lack of judgment or prejudice. Under-active chakras can leave a person rigid in their thinking, not allowing them to be spiritually aware. On the other hand, if we ignore our bodily needs in an addiction to spirituality, the chakra becomes over-active. At this point, over-intellectualizing can become a commonality.

Emotional attributes include experiencing pure bliss, seeing and appreciating inner and outer beauty, grace, and total experiential spiritual connection. Imbalances can manifest as boredom, confusion, apathy, an inability to learn, alienation, depression, and over time can lead to physical and mental ailments, headaches, mental illness, nervous system disorders, and pituitary problems.

To open and balance the crown chakra pray, meditate, sit in silence, keep a dream journal, put a clear quartz in your water bottle to purify it, get outside and breath fresh clean air and soak up the sunshine. More importantly, see yourself in every person you meet and find commonality with others. If you like stones and crystals use amethyst, clear quartz, or opal in your meditations or carry them with you throughout the day. Burn lotus incense, or use lotus, frankincense and myrrh, or violet essential oil. A common positive affirmation you can use is, “I am one with the Universe/God/etc.”

Here is a nice guided meditation you may find beneficial! 

This will wrap up our discussion of the crown chakra, and the series of blogs on the chakra system. I hope you have learned something that you can take with you that will be of some value. I'm not quite sure what I'm going to be writing about next. There are so many things I want to talk about!
