The Crown chakra is the uppermost chakra in the physical body. It is connected with the upper brain and the nervous system. While the lower chakras allow us to manifest material abundance, the upper chakras (including the Crown chakra) act as a gateway or connection to our higher Self. The Crown chakra helps bring us various soul gifts and orients us towards our life purpose.
When your Crown chakra is balanced and active, you feel at peace and therefore take calm and peaceful decisions. You feel like a part of the grand scheme of things and your intuition works at its best.
On the other hand, when the Crown chakra is not optimally functioning, you lack trust and feel lost about your life purpose. You lack passion, clarity and direction in life. You identify too much with the human emotions and are unable to connect to the higher realms of the Universe. In order to make the best of human life, you need to develop your Crown chakra along with the other chakras.
Here are few steps you can take to activate your Crown Chakra:
- Meditate: Practice a few minutes of silence every day. During this time, put away all the digital distractions and just let yourself be. You could watch your breath or your thoughts. Just do not identify with any of your thoughts. Relax completely. A consistent meditation practice helps to bring clarity and creates space for connecting to the Higher Self.
- Practice gratitude: It is important to cultivate the attitude of gratitude and to recognize that there is the Supreme Power, bigger than us. So take out a few minutes every morning once you wake up to enlist the blessings in your life. This helps to set the tone of the day, and prepares you for the everyday tasks. When you perform everyday tasks in a state of awareness, it is easier to relax and get into the meditative mode.
- Spend time outdoors: I stayed in hills for several years and realized that the atmosphere impacts your thoughts immensely. Spending time on mountaintops and taking plenty of sunlight positively influences your chakras, especially the Crown chakra, causing it to open.
- Crystals: You can use several crystals during meditation and Reiki practice. Some crystals that aid the Crown chakra include amethyst, selenite, and clear quartz. These crystals help provide relief from stress and anxiety. You may even charge these crystals using Reiki and keep them by your pillow side to get more restful and peaceful sleep.
We need to remember that we are more than this mortal body. We are super powerful energies. As long as our energies flow unobstructed we enjoy health and harmony. When this flow is impeded because of negative thoughts and actions, it creates problems. So try out the above and lets make the best of our lives.
Love and light
