The Crown Chakra - Spiritual Connection, Enlightenment and Bliss
As the seventh chakra, the crown chakra connects us to our spirituality. It is often represented by a many-petalled lotus flower, a symbol of divine energy that is said to transform us into a light being. When the crown chakra is open and healthy, it allows us to experience a sense of spirituality and enlightenment that can transform our lives and make them more fulfilling and meaningful.
A deficient crown chakra can cause apathy, loneliness and chronic fatigue. It can also lead to egotism, greed and mental confusion.
The Crown Chakra responds well to meditation, a practice that is good for all seven chakras. You can try a variety of techniques until you find the one that works for you, such as counting your breaths, saying a mantra or walking mindfully.
Practicing yoga postures such as Camel Pose, Rabbit Pose, and Savasana will also help to stimulate the crown chakra. Practicing these yoga asanas will help to open the chest, shoulders and neck.
Wearing gemstones can also help to open the crown chakra. Gems that work with the crown chakra include amethyst, selenite and sugilite.
Fasting is another way to energize the crown chakra. This is a practice that enables you to focus on your spirituality and higher consciousness while depriving yourself of food and other physical needs.
Affirmations can also be very helpful for balancing the crown chakra. These affirmations aim to increase your confidence and faith in yourself without any judgments or ego. They can also encourage a sense of openness and self-acceptance, which helps to balance the crown chakra.
