Revisiting the Crown
If it is one Chakra that I decided to revisit this week and check in on, it's the Crown. I feel a rich sense of clarity and feelings of hope and joy even in the most confining of circumstances when I tune this Chakra. Let me be clear, while the balance of all of the Chakras is important to good health and vitality, the Crown, to me, is the most important in our state of isolation and unknowing. So I wanted to check in and rewrite a bit on how you can focus on the Crown. Any amount of dedication will give you an instantaneous boost and perhaps relieve you of any feeling of lack and move you forward as you connect with the higher power.
Sahasrara or the Crown Chakra is the seventh and primary chakra located at the very top or crown of the head. The color associated with this chakra is Violet and White or even a luminous Opal color. It is associated physically with the body's central nervous system along with the pineal and pituitary glands. The Crown Chakra is the chakra that connects us with all of creation.
When this chakra is balanced, we can understand the world not just as it is seen but we can use our intuition and senses to guide us and in that, we use minimal effort to gain success in whatever we are engaged in. It equates to a wise and insightful personality that connects to others easily and feels that direct connection to a higher power. This presents itself outwardly as someone participating in and conducting themselves well in a good spiritual and balanced life. The person would be able to concentrate fully on almost anything that they are engaged in and be interested in seeking and acting as a seeker in their life’s purpose.
When this Chakra is imbalanced all of life can look unclear and unbalanced. Emotionally a person with this unbalanced chakra may have an unusual or obsessive fear of dying with feelings of loneliness, even feeling alone in the universe, sadness, and feelings of not being loved. Uninspired and without spiritual connection can evolve into confusion and coordination difficulties both physically and mentally. Several gemstones have a direct correlation with this chakra and can benefit a person suffering from the feelings described. Many of these stones promote clarity and restful sleep, the two things that are likely to clear much of a person’s lack of focus and inability to gain insight.
The beautiful healing stones for the Crown Chakra include:
Clear Quartz has the deepest metaphysical properties and the uses for this crystal are vast. It helps to expand consciousness and aides us in opening lines of communication. This stone is the conductor for the energizing of all of the chakras. This stone works for moving and eliminating energy blocks.
Amethyst crystals are associated with aiding to heal the physical ailments of the body's central nervous system, curing nightmares, and promoting healthy sleep. It is excellent in the balancing of the crown chakra.
This stone is excellent for sleep and stabilizing mood. This crystal contains a high amount of lithium and is known to calm anxiety. This is a stone that can assist in removing all energy blocks that keep you from joy.
• Purple Fluorite
If you have any kind of mental block this crystal is for you! It is excellent in dispelling negative energy. It has been called the “Genius Stone” because in times of creative block this would be your go-to energy stone. This stone can be used on the third eye chakra to enhance communication with spirit guides or angels. This stone can also help ease physical symptoms like headaches, ease arthritis, and even helps with a sore throat.
Charoite stimulates the Crown Chakra by synthesizing its energy to clear the aura and bring spiritual healing to the physical and emotional bodies.
These stones can be used by placing them at the crown chakra or near the top of the head while lying down. You could start by using clear quartz but working intuitively to pick the best of these gemstones with energies that resonate with you or anyone you are working on. When working with any crystal energy pick up the stones and spend some time concentrating on the stone’s energy and vibration. Take some time to give them the intention of healing. You will know which one is right for you or a client if you work enough with the stone. (get to know it).
You may also try using a very simple layout of three stones with one placed in the middle near the crown chakra and two facing outward and upward on each side of the first stone. Direct them out so the energy can flow outward during this balancing. Meditate with the stones using deep breathing techniques and concentrating on the crown of your head and the color violet. Keep the stones with you for a while and continue the meditations until the chakra becomes clear.
(The stones used here are not as I suggested)
In working with my chakras, my crown chakra is usually clear, but I like to use the stones to enhance and tune this chakra so my work can remain constant and clear with a direct line to the spiritual.
The Yama Yoga Store offers the Violet Crystal Healing Pouch which Includes stones of amethyst, fluorite, charoite, and lepidolite. It is a great pouch to start the healing or fine-tuning of your Crown Chakra or to base your first sessions with another person. Some essential oils that are good for the Crown Chakra include Cedarwood, Frankincense, and Myrrh.
Chant OM using the best Amethyst Prayer Mala Beads or play a Purple Singing Bowl that resonates to tune the crown chakra in the key of B. Light up a dedicated Crown Chakra Candle to enhance the ritual and meditation. End with a great cup of Chakra Tea specially made for the clearing and enhancement of the Crown Chakra.
