Thoughts From The Void

Crown Chakra

The next energy center is one that I feel requires us to let go. The 7th Chakra known in Sanskrit as Sahasrara, translates to “thousand petaled” and is said to be in the form of a lotus with a thousand petals arranged in twenty layers. And here is where the spiritual connection to the lotus and our energy feels right to me. It is thought that this chakra is where our connection to “spirit” resides. When we connect to the energy within this chakra, we have access to the self which has the objective view of our journey.

Much like the lotus travels through darkness to reach the place it eventually blooms, so too must we traverse the challenges of our lessons in order to fully reconnect to the energy of spirit.

There is much debate about the how chakras work, and if they are “open” or “blocked” etc., etc.; but I have found that regardless of the status of the other chakras; this one is one I just observe and don’t try to heal or influence in any way.

Typically, when working with energy, some chakras or nadis require some assistance. However, after the brow is always where I stop having intention and start having faith. I simply watch, wait, and know that if there is something that needs to be remedied in this area, spirit will facilitate the healing. My experience in this area only furthers my belief that this chakra is the area of faith.

Blocked by earthly attachments; this chakra can find balance if we release the will to control our physical world. When we let go of manipulating our thoughts, actions, or our reality; when we just trust that there is a bigger picture and that we are all an equal part of it, then we find peace and strength within this energy center.

When we struggle with the notion that there is more than what we see, that we are not alone, that we are all loved equally; we choose to shut down our connection to spirit and thusly create disfluencies within the crown chakra. In order to restore balance here, all we need to do is have faith.

All other chakras require some action, intention, focus, or mindfulness; but in my opinion the crown chakra needs only trust and faith.

An imbalance in this chakra can put us out of sync with the universe. When a dis-fluency in energy flow occurs here it affects all other chakras and can lead to depression or nervous system disorders. 

Suggestive signs of excessive energy: Addicted to spirituality, neglecting bodily needs, having difficulty controlling emotions 

Suggestive signs of energy deficiency: Not very open to spirituality, unable to set or maintain goals, lacking direction 

Here is a list of crystals that can help balance the energy in the Crown Chakra. I have listed a few keywords associated with each. A few of my favorite crystals for this chakra are:
