The Crown Chakra

Good evening, I am finishing the Chakra series with the highest chakra, most often referred to as the Crown Chakra- which is located at the topmost point of the head.

This area is sacred to many cultures worldwide; turbans, caps and veils are all used to keep the crown chakra covered, especially while in sacred spaces. Many cultures believe that infants should have their heads covered until special ceremonies are held which introduce them to the community after they are blessed. These traditions hark back to times when the power of the chakras was universally respected.

The crown chakra connects our souls to higher vibrational levels, and to God itself. No wonder so many cultures still revere the crown as holy!

As we’ve learned from previous posts about the chakras, the Kundalini energy is stored in the lower chakras and when awakened by meditation, intent and occasionally by accidental shock, the native’s energy runs up one side of the spine and down the other, through channels known as Ida and Pingala. This natural energy is called ‘chi’ by some cultures and allows the highest functioning of the human spirit body within its physical body.

During a deep meditation, one can allow the spirit energy to move up and out through the crown chakra in order to find oneness with higher realms in the Universe. The crown, and possibly the whole head, may begin to tingle and open as this energy is raised. By allowing one’s energy to raise up and out of one’s being, you can communicate with lighter realms of energy, receive messages, and become renewed. The feeling is like standing under a very gentle, warm shower or like being massaged with a wire scalp tingler. It is restful and renewing… and difficult to describe, as each person’s experience is unique to themselves.

It is important to remember to close this chakra back down when awakening to everyday reality and ground yourself. This may be helped by replacing your head covering, touching your head or even standing under an actual shower.

Bending and touching the head to the ground, or just placing the hands and knees on the ground while picturing the extra energy running back into your body, then out of your body from the lower chakras and back into the Earth, while breathing slowly and deliberately, will help you regain your normal energy level and feel ‘grounded’.

In all good health and blessings~ Namaste’
