Do you believe in miracles? If so, your crown chakra is the key to unlocking your supernatural power to transcend the laws of physics and nature and actually be the conduit for miraculous happenings. With this chakra in balance, there is no need to fear death or to doubt a higher power – your elevated consciousness of both gives you a stronger sense of internal peace.
Color Association: Purple, Violet, and White
Physical Location: At the very top of your head. It is the 7th Chakra that feeds life energy into all other chakras.
The crown chakra, also known as the 7th Chakra and in Sanskrit called the Sahasrara, which literally translated means “thousand fold,” is a lotus chakra. Its Sanskrit name is derived based on the thousand petals in white that surround the crown chakra’s purple or violet center.
The crown chakra or the 7th chakra connects your non-physical energy to the universe. It infuses all other chakras with universal light and energy.
Corresponding Physical Functions: Nervous system, muscles, brain, head, ears, eyes, skin, and pineal gland.
Your Crown Chakra in Balance
Crown chakras are associated with life energy. With your crown chakra in balance, your ability to communicate with a higher power is exponentially heightened to the point that you can become the conduit for miracles.
Whether through spiritual healing, supernatural phenomena, or visions and prophecies, your crown chakra is the energy center within you where all of those things originate.
An Imbalanced Crown Chakra
One of the most noticeable effects of an imbalanced crown chakra is withdrawal and solitude. When your crown chakra is out of balance you have a hard time connecting with your inner being and with other people.
If your crown chakra is overactive, you will suffer some of the same effects as a hyperactive third eye chakra. Like with the third eye chakra, when your crown chakra is overactive you will over-think things.
You could find yourself obsessing about the good old days, living in the past or petrified of the future worrying about things that haven’t happened to you and may never happen. On the other side of the coin a blocked or weak crown chakra turns you into a selfish unfeeling person.
You lack intuition and empathy. You tend to be very judgmental and carry yourself in a cold and distant manner. It’s no wonder that when your crown chakra is out of whack, it can lead to serious health problems including:
Unsurprisingly when you are suffering from a weakened chakra you won’t enjoy your life and you are more likely to do unethical things. You feel totally disconnected from your higher power and therefore receive none of the wisdom or peace that comes from oneness with a supreme being.
Balancing Your Crown Chakra
Your crown chakra tipped one way or the other is a bad thing. The goal is to strike a perfect balance and to maintain it. One easy way to do that is to begin a meditation or prayer ritual. Every day humble yourself before a higher power and seek guidance and strength while acknowledging your love and appreciation for that power.
Of course you will want to meditate using the color purple, white, and or violet to focus your energy. Amber, diamonds, rose quartz, and amethyst are all excellent stones to wear on your body to draw in energy through your crown chakra. Use fragrances including fragrant flowers for meditation and yoga.
When you begin balancing your crown chakra, try a two day fast first drinking plenty of water. Then begin adding more purple fruits like plums and grapes to your diet as well as veggies and warm broth soups.
