The meaning of Sahasrara is the opening of the spiritual self, like a lotus opening itself to the sun. We are at our best when we acknowledge that we are all beings of this universe, connected together with an energy we can’t really comprehend. For some it’s difficult to accept that maybe as human beings we aren’t meant to know it all, only to feel it all. Trying to quantify spiritual feelings is like trying to hold on to smoke.
Striving to be part of something greater than yourself is what drives humanity to progress. When we meditate on the Crown Chakra we are reaching for that indescribable energy that binds the universe together.
If the Root Chakra exists to remind us of our earthly roots, the Crown Chakra exists to remind us to reach for that which we do not have the words to describe. The things that we just know, in our spirit, to be true.
Crown Chakra Connection
Just as the Root Chakra connects us to Mother Earth, the Crown Chakra is our connection to the Universe.
In fact the Crown Chakra disperses the Universal energy or life force into the six other chakras located below it.
Crown Chakra Meaning
This chakra’s function is to manage specific areas of the brain, the nervous system, the pineal gland, the pituitary gland, and all master glands. The crown chakra represents your realisation and independence from living things, your wisdom, and your wholeness
Location in the Body
The Crown Chakra which is all about spiritual connectivity; the energy centre within our bodies that is responsible for thought, awareness, wisdom and our connection to the Divine. Located at the very top of the head, the crown chakra is associated with the colour violet and the pituitary gland within the brain. This chakra helps to regulate the energy of consciousness and is closely associated with the brain and the whole nervous system.
Associated with bright white and golden light and with the element of pure light.
Crown Chakra Colour
The colour VIOLET/PURPLE governs the CROWN chakra, at the top of the head.
The Crown Chakra is about wisdom and being one with the world. Violet relates to self-knowledge/spiritual awareness.
Crown Chakra Symbol
Sahasrara means ‘thousand petal lotus’. Depicted as a violet thousand-petaled lotus flower. This symbol that is associated with the crown chakra is one that possesses transcendental meaning, essentially the spiritual self. Working on the Crown Chakra is all about focusing on the higher self. It is associated with the pursuit of spiritual peace, and connecting to higher consciousness or state of being.
The chakra symbols are actually meant to represent the cosmic geometry of the universe.
I am love
I am light
I am oneness
I am healed
I am unity
I am at peace
I am healed on all levels of my being
I am whole and complete
I trust life
I am fully awake and aware
I am pure love and light
I am connected to all that is
I am protected by the divine light
When balanced, you are totally and completely mindfully present in each moment. When your Crown Chakra is properly aligned and fully open, you will experience a lot of pleasure in life.
If your Crown Chakra is blocked you can experience feelings of emotional distress, isolation, and disconnection from other people and events. You may also feel quite as usual, only without feelings of enlightenment and spiritual connection. A blocked Crown Chakra tends to be the result of living in stressful environments, fast-paced lifestyles. True spiritual peace will not leave you desperate to feel it again, or as if you need your spiritual ‘fix’ to get you through the day. That is a sign of an over active crown chakra, and you need to come back down to earth for a little bit.
Balanced Crown Chakra
Able to perceive
Unbalanced Crown Chakra
Disconnect from the spiritual side of life
A lack of connection or guidance from a higher power
Feeling unworthy of spiritual help
Anger that your higher power has abandoned you
Not being able to see the higher picture
Lack of clarity
IS YOUR CROWN CHAKRA BALANCED?
In our pursuit of connecting to higher energies we must try not to forget that we are still a living being, down here on earth. Spiritual obsession can be damaging to the physical being if it’s not kept in control. This is where we need the help of our Root Chakra to keep us balanced.
According to the standard chakra colours test, the crown chakra is associated with violet. However, it also has links to clear stones and crystals.
With the help of crown chakra stones, you can change your life for the better. Keep in mind though, it is important that you use the correct stones that resonate with you.
