The crown chakra is located at the top of our head or in the crown area and corresponds to the violet color. The role of this chakra is based in awakening consciousness and attaining enlightenment through the integration of the self into the one universal form of intelligence.
The energy we conduct of the Higher Force calls its complement into our being. Emanations of Higher Energy become available to transform our lives, recharging and repairing our own systems. Energy upheavals shift us out of destructive habits, encouraging us to relearn integrative ways of being.
This Chakra is associated with divine wisdom, our spirit, our Oneness with the Universe, our Unity with all that is, and Enlightenment
We use the seventh chakra as a tool to communicate with our spiritual nature. It is through this vortice that the life force is dispersed from the universe into the lower 6 chakras. It has been referred to as our “GOD SOURCE” – but this terminology might be confusing to anyone who equates God with religious dogma, because of this I choose to call it a spiritual connection or communicator.
This chakra is often pictured as a lotus flower opening to allow spiritual awakening in an individual. The crown chakra could also be considered the well intuitive knowing is drawn from.
Spiritual Lesson spirituality, living
If you are often overcome with frustration or bitterness regarding situations which are beyond your control or find yourself struggling with a sense of helplessness and insignificance in the world, then concentrate on freeing your crown chakra.
And what if you are not at all spiritual, and don’t believe in the existence of anything outside this physical realm? You can still benefit from opening your crown chakra. If you look at life from the perspective of quantum physics, which states that everything is energy, then promoting the free flow of energy of what you want into your own localized energy cluster will make for a richer and more rewarding life. To ACTIVATE, ENERGIZE your chakras, focusing on the Universal ONENESS of all. YOu are not just a drop in the ocean but the OCEAN.
SOUND: Select some awesome crown chakra healing music. One I found was Healing Music of Tambura for Crown Chakra Awakening by Mediative Mind-Meditative Music
CRYSTAL: Amethyst: Spiritual protection and purification
Clears negative influences and attachments, creating an energetic shield of Light
Increases psychic abilities/intuition
FRAGRANCE: neroli, lavender, frankincense, and geranium essential oils are all cleansing and purifying essential oils for the Crown Chakra
Remember…… Lavender is useful for all seven main chakras
Essential oils have amazing subtle (energetic or vibrational) qualities. The use of essential oils for energetic purposes is called subtle aromatherapy
In fact, the therapeutic (biochemical) attributes of essential oils are also relevant to energy work because energetic imbalances tend to eventfully manifest in the physical body. Because of this, essential oils and aromatherapy can be said to be inherently multi-dimensional and in essence integrated. For me, this makes them a wonderful bridge between subtle (energetic) and biochemical (clinical) modalities that promote healing, balance and wellness.
MEDITATION: To open the crown chakra, put your hands before your stomach. Let the ring fingers point up, touching at their tops. Cross the rest of your fingers, with the left thumb underneath the right.
Concentrate on the Crown chakra at the top of your head.
Chant the sound NG.
As we move up the ladder, the higher chakras are more affected by mediation and inner work rather than physical work.
Half Lotus :Start by sitting in an easy pose on the mat. For further support, beginners can sit on a cushion to stay longer in the pose. Lift the left foot and gently place it on the right thigh, while the other foot stays underneath the left thigh. Place the hands on the knees. Stay here and mediate if you can hold for long enough or practice daily to achieve the long duration required for mediation. Why to: Lotus pose or Padamasana is one of the most opted poses for meditation as it neutralises blood pressure, balances the body and calms the mind. Directly tapping into the higher consciousness, half lotus pose extend the same benefits as a full lotus pose and is a great practice for beginners.
For lotus visualization be seated and bring your hands into prayer at your heart. Bring your awareness to your pelvic floor and let it rest there until you feel grounded, supported, and relaxed. Then begin to glide your awareness up the front of your spine slowly checking in and resting for a moment on each chakra as you go. Imagine the spine as a stalk or reed and draw your awareness up through the reed. Once you reach to the crown of your head, imagine there at the top of that stalk of energy a luminous white lotus flower. One by one begin to open each petal of the thousand-petaled lotus. Imagine as you open the lotus that your innermost self is merging more and more with the universe. Let this happen in the most natural and beautiful manner. Spend as much time in this visualization meditation as you like.
Tree Pose Start with Mountain pose, keep the feet hip width apart. Extend your spine tall and fix your gaze forward at a focal point. Breathe in and lift the right leg and place the sole of your right foot on the left leg, inner thigh. The heel of the right leg should touch the perineum otherwise, can rest on the thigh, or even on the calf initially. Lifting the torso upwards, take a deep breath & raise the arms up, joining the hands in Namaste mudra. If you can, take your gaze upwards towards the ceiling. Stay here for 5 to 7 breaths and repeat on the other side. Why to: A restorative and a balancing pose, the position of the arms and gaze taps into the energies of the crown chakra. The position of the body, works from root to the tip of the head, by aligning the chakras in a string. Also, rejuvenating the mind, it strengths the whole body.
Savasana or Corpse Pose How to: Lying on your back, lift your pelvis and slide your tailbone away to comfortably spread your lower back. Keep just a light, natural arch to your lower back. Rest your pelvis on the ground. Place both the feet and the arms 3 to 4 feet apart with palms facing the ceiling. For extended support one can place a yoga blanket, cushion or pillow underneath the calves to relax the lower back. Now, close your eyes and take a slow deep breath. As you exhale, let your body relax and sink into the floor. Maintain stillness as you relax and quiet the mind. Completely loosen the whole body, like your body is sinking in the floor. Stay here for as long as you like. Why to: This pose gets its name from the posture of a dead body. It requires the stillness of a corpse, which makes it a challenging one. It helps in the repair of tissues and cells and in releasing stress. Savasana helps to calm and balance the crown chakra.
