The Crown Chakra
Today we are talking about the Crown Chakra or Sahaswara.
Where is it?
This chakra is located at the top of the head. Put your hand there now and focus. Feel the energy/heat coming off of this area.
How does it affect me?
The Crown Chakra is our connection to the Divine. To all that is. To everyone and everything. If this area is unbalanced there may be feelings of being completely isolated and alone. Loss of faith, depression and confusion are also symptoms of an unbalanced Crown Chakra. This area also governs all chakras below it, so it is very important to keep this area as balanced as possible. When this area is balanced and open, the ego falls away, we have more energy and are filled with gratitude for all that is.
How can I balance it?
Color therapy - WHITE (and sometimes purple) is the color of this chakra. Wear white, burn a white candle, buy white flowers for your home or office
Crystal therapy - Clear quartz, sugilite, auralite 23, colemanite are just a few great crystals to use.
Essential oils - Lavender, jasmine, rose
Sound therapy - The best sound therapy for this chakra is no sound. Silence is what is needed for this area. We are turning inward and listening to the Divine within us at this point. This is all about Spirituality, Connection and Awareness.
Elemental therapy - Sunshine is a wonderful stimulant to this chakra. Sit outside and remain quiet.
When I feel an imbalance occurring within this area, I go outside with a quartz crystal and sit in the sun. I sit with my eyes closed, holding the crystal in my left hand and just breathe. Sometimes I'll do a little yoga while I'm out, but it's a very slow and deliberate set of positions. Nothing strenuous. It's about the focus, the breath and the connection (or re-connection) for me.
