THE CROWN CHAKRA
The seventh major Chakra is known as the Crown Chakra or Sahasrara in Sanskrit. It is located at the top of our head opening upwards towards the sky.
The Crown Chakra is the embodiment of consciousness giving us access to our higher self and is beyond our body and worldly perceptions.
It allows us to connect with the Universe. It is where we are one with everything and everything is one with us. It is balance. It is where we can be, find peace and accept our existence and the Universes we're in.
The Crown Chakra is visualized as the color violet, but can display itself as gold or white. It is symbolized with a 1000 petals Lotus flower.
A BALANCED CROWN CHAKRA
A balanced Crown Chakra will allow one to just be instead of doing. It allows us to access the most raw and pure form of our Human existence.
It allows us to experience serenity and peace in all aspects of our lives. We are in control of our thoughts, we will be intuitive as we are connected to our higher self and our mind will be calm and quiet.
We are able to create what we envision. We'll be able to manifest what we project and create with intent and our thoughts. We realize and accept that how we see the world is how we perceive it.
AN OVER-ACTIVE CROWN CHAKRA
When the Crown Chakra becomes hyper, we'll be constantly searching for satisfaction, happiness, and peace, but unable to find it even if it is right in front of us.
It can feel frustrating when we have no explanation as to why we're feeling that way and act judgmental, unsympathetic and critical. It can eventually manifest into feeling detached from your body and living in your head.
An over-active Crown Chakra can make us obsessively attached to spiritual matters or religious beliefs. We won’t feel grounded and can be close minded.
A BLOCKED CROWN CHAKRA
When a Crown Chakra is blocked or closed it can make us indecisive, unable to accept our part in the Universe and feel disconnected from our higher self.
Opposite from an over-active Crown Chakra, a blocked one can lead us to being skeptic of any form of spirituality and doubting that we are one with all that surrounds us.
Sometimes we can fear death or aging and become sensitive to the environment around. The lack of energy in our Crown Chakra has us over-analyzing things and lacking clarity in our life purpose.
With the deficient flow of energy, you will miss that spark of joy found in the small things in life.

I am the highest truth. I am at peace. I am light. My thoughts become my reality. My mind is clear. I know my life’s purpose and I am on the right path. I receive guidance from my higher self.
