Crown Chakra



The seventh chakra is know as the crown chakra and is situated on the top of the head or crown area. This chakra is represented by the colours violet or white Sahasara mandala and is also symbolised by sacred spirits. The seventh chakra is the foundation of our spiritual body and links us to the highest guidance, the creation. It influences spiritual will, inspiration, idealism and celestial knowledge it is our connection with the universe. 
This chakra physically influences the cerebral cortex, cerebrum, central nervous system, glands and the pineal gland, pituitary gland and hormones related to them.

When the crown chakra is balanced we are released from ego driven desires, we are able to trust in our highest guidance and know that we are guided in all that we do.

If this chakra is not working properly we will still be guided but this guidance will probably be ego influenced rather than from our highest guidance this can cause us to become unsure of our self's, reducing our self confidence and creating fear and anxiety. It can create negative influences in the physical this can be seen in the form of apathy and problems with the understanding and retention of knowledge. Physical problems which may occur are headaches, worry, anxiety, immune disorders, metal and cognitive problems. 

When open this chakra feels as if there is a small amount of pressure, pulling or tugging at the crown of the head. The seventh chakra balance is affected by the balance of the previous six Chakras.

Unblocking & balancing aids to help realign the seventh of crown chakra - We can help to balance this chakra by spending quite time in mediation and connect with your inner self, higher self, spirit guides, the source, whichever works best for yourself and whatever path you walk is the right way for you. Ask in quite contemplation for guidance in matters you require answers for. 
Your answer may come to you immediately or may come later as an Aha moment. Try to set aside time regularly to do this and in time this will become common practice to you and answers will flow freely to you. Practice makes perfect.
