Violet Crown Chakra Saturday
Correlated with Saturday is the SEVENTH chakra, our CROWN located at the top of the head and our potential connection to the SOURCE. The CROWN vibrates to the key of B(‘tee’ on the scale)and is associated with the colors lavender, violet, white and gold .
By consciousness(meditation), we become endowed with the ability to transmit our own energy field, our individual unit of power. We are energy transformers; we are alive and developing in proportion to how much of the universal energy we accept and how freely it flows through us. The better we transmit this energy or allow it to flow through us; the more alive and contented and effective we become.
The energy we conduct of the Higher Force calls its complement into our being. Emanations( an abstract but perceptible thing that issues or originates from a source)of Higher Energy become available to transform our lives, recharging and repairing our own systems bruised and muddied up with negativity and regrets. Energy upheavals shift us out of destructive habits of condemning ourselves, encouraging us to relearn integrative joyful and artistic ways of being.
The crown chakra is a door of universal energy and conscience: through it we can reach a higher state of awareness. Our violet crown (Sahasrara in Sanskrit) leads us to the true nature of life which is abundant in JOY, EXPRESSION, PURPOSE and CURIOSITY.
There is JOY in CURIOSITY , CREATING and in the CREATION. There is WONDER in stepping outside our comfort zones. There is FREEDOM and PURPOSE in artistic expression in whatever form

Lavender as some astonishing effects on our body: composed Linalool and linalyl acetate which are rapidly absorbed through the skin after topical application with massage have been shown to calm the central nervous system ( http://www.hindawi.com/journals/ecam/2013/681304/)
…. “ essential oils are lipid soluble and can penetrate cell membranes bringing an increase of 21% oxygen to the cells within 20 minutes of application. ” This allows cells to function normally and release chemical toxins in an oxygen rich environment. Sesquiterpene molecules especially increase oxygen availability in the limbic system of the brain around the pineal and pituitary glands. This oxygenated environment can “lead to an increase of antibodies, endorphins and neurotransmitters. Essential oils also carry into the cells, ozone and negative ions which inhibit bacterial growth, antioxidants and hormones – all necessary for proper cell functioning.” (http://www.biospiritual-energy-healing.com/essential-oils-affect-the-body.html)
The effects of aromatherapy are theorized to result from the binding of chemical components in the essential oil to receptors in the olfactory bulb, impacting the brain’s emotional center, the limbic system. Topical application of aromatic oils may exert antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic effects.(http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0032645/#!po=3.12500)

SEE YA LATER: I think it is quite lovely and calming to have an amethyst cluster, a reed diffuser (April 9th post)of Lavender EO and a bouquet of lavender flowers arranged on the bedside table. As you arrange your crystals, oils and flowers empower yourself and the other energy forms you are working with with your intentions. “I AM oneness with all” is the one I repeat each time I am mindful and present in the moment.
“Freedom is not given to us by anyone; we have to cultivate it ourselves. It is a daily practice…No one can prevent us from being aware of each step we take or each breath in and breath out.” — Thich Nhat Hanh, Buddhist monk,
