What is the Crown Chakra? Healing with Meditations, Crystals and Color Therapy
Continuing on with our chakra series, in this article we’re going to talk all about the crown chakra: what it is, what it represents, and how to heal an imbalanced crown chakra through stones*, meditations, and color therapy.
The crown chakra, or Sahasrara, is the seventh chakra. As the name suggests, the crown chakra is positioned right at the crown of our heads, right above the third eye chakra. It is positioned between our physical body, our mind and soul, and the universe.
Because of its position, the crown chakra is all about reaching into our consciousness as well as reaching higher states of consciousness. A full functioning crown chakra allows you to get in touch with not only the higher consciousness but with the universal as well. It allows us to transcend and let go of limitations and limiting beliefs.
Pretty amazing, right? Who wouldn’t want to reach higher states of consciousness in order to transcend to an enlightened state of being?
But not everyone is able to do so. In fact, those with an imbalanced or blocked crown chakra will have trouble transcending and reaching higher states of consciousness.
An imbalanced crown chakra can show up as being disconnected with higher states of consciousness, being disconnected with the body, being close minded, and being critical of the idea of higher consciousness. An overactive crown chakra specifically manifests as being disconnected with the body.
Everyone deserves to know how transformative it can be to connect to higher consciousness and transcend without limiting beliefs.
If you found yourself nodding to the imbalanced crown chakra signs, know that you are not alone. There are others who find their crown chakras underactive or overactive but there are ways to heal it.
