Violet Crown Chakra Saturday

Saturday correlates with the Violet colored energy center known as the crown chakra —it relates to consciousness as pure awareness. It is our connection to the greater world beyond, to a timeless, spaceless place of all-knowing. When developed, this chakra brings us knowledge, wisdom, understanding, spiritual connection, and bliss.

It’s POTENTIAL qualities: grace, beauty, serenity, oneness with all that is
Life Issues: selfless realization of your indelible connection with the greater whole of life and creation of a vital and resilient spiritual context for holding your life experiences

Positive: The Guru–Gurus are people who realize who they are. They know that the divine force flows through them and they are identified with that as the substratum of their being, rather than the temporal parts of their life. They let life move through them and take them ever deeper into consciousness itself.

Negative: The Egotist—-Egotists are people who think their efforts alone carry them through life. They believe that they are separate from a greater whole of existence and that their striving and effort controls the outcome of their life.

LET GO of the EGO.  Join up with the UNIVERSAL FORCES and let the force be with you as you expand your Violet crown Chakra:

AFFIRMATIONS:

“I connect easily with spirit”
“I am sure of my inner knowing”
“My experience is abundant”
“I am pure light and love”

SOUNDS: Meditation Music for Crown Chakra of your choosing; or iTunes:A Guided Visualization “Shifting Perspective and Awakening to Oneness”–Crown Chakra; or the Tina Turner chants linked below

CRYSTALS:Selenite is by far one of the most powerful and one of the highest vibrational stones existing on our planet at this time. Selenite Cleansing Stone has ability, given your intentions, to unblock stagnant energy and remove negative energy (from Muse Jewelry on Pinterest.)

Endow the stones, aromas and sounds with your positive affirmations:

“I connect easily with spirit”
“I am sure of my inner knowing”
“My experience is abundant”
“I am pure light and love”

AROMAS:  Frankincense and sandalwood are probably the two essential oils most frequently identified with the crown chakra. Both promote meditative states, encourage higher states of consciousness, expand the crown chakra, support spiritual connection and growth. Sandalwood encourages astral projection. Frankincense expands the aura and helps awaken one’s spiritual or soul purpose. Frankincense also works on physical manifestations of crown chakra dysfunction such as anxiety, restlessness, nervous tension and stress-related conditions.

DIFFUSING-It is pleasant to have homemade essential oil diffusers in various places in your environment  to infuse your space with a continuous and subtle scent.  Many  packaged diffusers often contain unnatural ingredients that we don’t necessarily want diffused around the house along with the scent.To skip the unwanted ingredients and the expense, try making your own oil diffuser using an essential oil of your choosing. Or, experiment with combining oils for a highly-personalized scent — just be sure to test out the combination by adding a drop or two of each of the oils to a cotton ball to make sure the blend is appealing to you.

You will need a container with a wide base and a small opening , as it will discourage evaporation; reeds (health, online or craft stores  carry reeds); Safflower or Mineral oil (Mineral oil less viscous than vegetable oil and is better at carrying the scent up the reeds); Plain  unflavored, nondiluted vodka( helps thin out the oil so that it will move more easily up the reeds); Essential oil(s).
Pour one-quarter cup mineral oil and two tablespoons vodka into a measuring cup and stir well to combine the liquids.  Add in one and one-half tablespoons of essential oil (the ratio should be about one part essential oil to four parts mineral oil and vodka).
Stir well and pour the oil mixture into your container. Insert as many reeds as will fit into the opening.
Flip the reeds every few days to optimize the scent diffusion.  Each time you you are mindful of the scent repeat an affirmation: “I AM….”

MEDITATION:  Sitting in half lotus or Full Lotus position chant **Nam-myoho-renge-kyo**
The purpose of chanting this phrase is to attain perfect and complete awakening (enlightenment).

Nam Myōhō Renge Kyō, represents devotion or conviction in the Mystic Law of Life, God, or Universal Source.    Some followers of Buddhism also consider Myōhō Renge Kyō to be the name of the ultimate law permeating the universe.
Broken down, Myōhō Renge Kyō consists of Myōhō (妙法), “sublime,” “unfathomable” or “mystic” law

YOGA
As we move up the ladder, the higher chakras are more affected by mediation and inner work rather than physical work, but here are two basic asanas, or poses:

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.

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.

SEE YALL LATER:
Constantly regard the universe as one living being, having one substance and one soul; and observe how all things have reference to one perception, the perception of this one living being; and how all things act with one movement; and how all things are the cooperating causes of all things that exist; observe too the continuous spinning of the thread and the structure of the web:–Marcus Aurelius

All Day send out the vibration of ‘Nam myoho renge kyo’ to intensify your connection to the Universe.

NAMASTE,                                                                                                                                                                     Priscilla
