The Crown Chakra:
The Crown Chakra (What is a chakra?) is the seventh energy center among the 7 traditional ones. It is seen as violet in color and is located on top of your head. This chakra is connected to your wisdom,intellect and your understanding. Your awareness and consciousness as well as you spiritual connection and mastery and higher self.
When in balance, you will feel more connected and at home with yourself and the Universe. You will be more open minded and have a greater sense of understanding. You’ll be more open to the cosmic and spiritual energies and receive that from Source and your higher self. You’ll have an easier time to see the wisdom in your experiences and in life. You will be able to hold more and more energy within your being through a healthy nervous system and the crown chakra. Clair-cognizance is connected to this chakra, a sense of knowing and inspired thoughts.
When overcharged, you might be ungrounded and feel a disassociation to your physical body. You might get overly-intellectual or have your “head in the clouds”, which can lead to an unbalanced or dysfunctional communication and relating to others and the world. This can lead to confusion. An overcharged crown can also lead to spiritual addiction and depression.
With insufficient energy, you might feel a greater sense of separation and feel uncertain about your purpose or even feel a complete lack of purpose. As with the Third Eye Chakra, you might have learning difficulties and having a hard time understanding and making decisions. There might also be a greater feeling of fearing death.
Physical imbalances might be: Headaches, migraine, poor memory, imbalanced nervous system, poor coordination, tiredness, dimming vision, ringing ears.
(Note: ringing in the ears can also be your guides giving you energy or messages, thus it doesn’t have to be an imbalance.)
How to clear and balance your crown chakra:
Meditation is good for all chakras, the crown included. Sit in meditation, preferably in complete silence, and focus upon your crown chakra. You can imagine white or golden light entering your crown from above. Otherwise simply sit in silence and be still, imagine that you open your crown chakra like a flower opening to the sun.
Be of service to others, for the sake of helping and assisting out of love and good will. Do this from a place of love and mastery, with a sense of being equal and without sacrificing yourself.
As for all chakras you can do Yoga and the connected exercises for the chakra.
Give yourself healing or receive healing from a healer to clear, balance and heal your chakras.
Violet & clear crystals are clearing and balancing for the crown chakra. Use these in meditation or carry them in your pocket or as jewelry and they will help in this. Amethyst, Clear Quartz and Herkimer Diamond are good crystals for this chakra.
This was general information about the crown chakra with some examples and tips. May this be of assistance to you and may you find your way to balance it and be aware, at home and connected.
