7 Week Chakra Segment – Crown Chakra
Hello everyone! As we reach the Crown chakra, or Sahasrara, we conclude our 7 week Chakra segment. Sahasrara is sanskrit for the lotus flower of 1000 pedals. It is located at the top of your head, and it is our connection to the divine. It is this gateway that connects us to both the physical and non-physical realm of our existence, and it is here that we find our divinity and become enlightened. From this place, we realize that we truly are connected to all there is, and in this knowing comes a great compassion for all life, eternal bliss, and infinite wisdom. According to Tantric philosophy, the seventh chakra is both a receiver and giver of energy and consciousness. It receives energy to sustain life and it gives back the personal energy to unite with the collective pool of consciousness.
Through clarity and harmony in the Crown chakra we become aware that our life is but an extension of our own consciousness; that we are the dreamer, the architect, the painter of our world and reality. We understand that all manifestations (good and bad) are a result of our own thought patterns that become subconscious beliefs – and knowing this allows us to intentionally and positivity begin to alter the dream, and shift our reality. When there is blockage in the Crown chakra – we see things such as Being disconnected to spirit and constant cynicism regarding what is sacred. On the opposite end, an overactive Crown chakra can manifest as Living in the head and being disconnected from your body and earthly matters.
Tools for balancing the Crown Chakra:
Affirmations: Repeat this affirmation a few times throughout your day – “I trust my inner knowing to guide me through life. All people in my life are here to teach me something about myself so that i can further grow and expand. I trust that everything happens for a reason and that what i do makes a difference. I am balanced between heaven and earth and all areas of my life are in balance too.”
Crystals: Crystals that are connected to the energy of the Crown chakra include Amethyst belongs to the astrological signs of Pisces, Virgo,..., Celestite, Obsidian, Selenite, Blue Sapphire, Peacock ore, Clear Quartz, Spirit Quartz, Moldavite, Petalite, Stillbite, and many many more. Find your favorite – and keep it with you while you consciously work to clear and restore balance in the Crown chakra.
Essential Oils: Cedarwood, Elemi, Frankincense, Jasmine, Lavender, Myrrh, Neroli, Rose, Rosewood, Sandalwood, and many more essential oils are connected with the energy of the Crown chakra. Diffuse these oils in your home or space, create a blend to wear on your skin, or put a few drops on a warm washcloth and take a nice bath to integrate them into your process of clearing and balancing.
Nutrition: Choosing pure foods that are grown in nature that absorb sunshine are great foods to help purify the crown chakra. Rather than going for processed sugar, choose dried fruits such as dates that are dried out by the sun. Start a gentle detox, drink plenty of water, and avoid food with additives generally found in processed packaged food. If you don’t already – try to visit a local farmers market and connect with some of the farmers. Get to know your foods and their environment. (This also lowers the consumption made of plastic packaging!)
Sound Therapy: The seed sound of the Crown chakra is “Om” believed to be the crating sound of the universe. It vibrates in harmony to a “B” Note. Chanting “Om” in a B note is a great way to instantly shake up and break up any potential blockage or stagnant energy. Listen to a Crown chakra clearing frequency by clicking HERE
In conclusion – lets remember. With one chakra blockage somes traffic and a slowed down river of energy throughout all chakras. With too much overactivity comes a wild raging flow of energy throughout the body and all chakras. Our goal is to not focus too deeply on one space but rather to find conscious awareness of all energy centers – creating balance in harmony in the body – as a smooth, efficient, and plentiful river. Work your way through each chakra through meditation. Connect with your centres.
We hope this information has been useful, empowering, and fun!
