CROWN - Connection to our Higher Selves
Color: Deep Purple
Located: Crown of your Head
Yoga Poses: Headstand & Corpse Pose
The original name of our Crown chakra is Sahasrara, meaning “Thousand Petals”. This chakra is our seventh chakra. Located on top of our head, our Crown chakra is connected to our higher self and universal body. This is the driving force of our higher states of consciousness. When balanced, our Crown chakra allows us to connect to universal realms of light and being.
Without realizing, we could close ourselves off to the benefits of our Crown chakra. Our Crown can get out of balance when we start to live in our own head and disconnect from our earthly body, develop close-mindedness, and have obsessive spiritual attachments. Some physical symptoms of an imbalance includes headaches, light sensitivity, and depression.
To bring balance back into our Crown, we must do things that allow us to open ourselves up to the energies of the universe. Holistic ways to balance your Crown chakra include incorporating essential oils into our daily routine, like our Crown Chakra Aromatherapy blend which consists of natural Helichrysum, Lavender, and Frankincense essential oils. Using crystals in our meditative state or wearing them on our physical body will also help balance your chakras. Clear Quartz, Moonstone, Lepidolite, and Selenite are very powerful tools for our Crown chakra as well.
