Meaning: spiritual growth
When your Crown Chakra develops and opens, it can sometimes seem like a midlife crisis. People are awakened and suddenly feel more connected to the spiritual and to others. They also feel more often connected to the world around them. Big, important life questions come up and we start looking for answers.
Where is your Crown Chakra located?
Your Crown Chakra is located at the top of your head, at your crown. If you put your thumbs in your ears and then bring the index fingers together just above your head, that is where the Crown Chakra is located. Unlike the other chakras, this chakra is located both inside and outside of our body.
What does your Crown Chakra stand for?
This chakra represents connection to the greater whole, cosmic consciousness. Being completely balanced is what you want most. In this ideal situation, you experience oneness with yourself and your environment. You no longer have (pre)judgments and no expectations; you fully accept 'that which is'. You live in harmony with the universe.
Balanced Crown Chakra
You are connected to the universal energy, you feel calm, have trust, and know that everything is part of the greater whole. You feel complete and connected to your higher self. This connection helps you feel connected to everything and everyone around you, so you no longer feel separation from the rest of the world and the universe. You feel an inner peace and it is not easily disturbed. Many emotions or situations may come along, but you remain equanimous within everything. You know there is more than you see and feel, and can feel the power within. You accept life as it is and know that you are where you need to be. You can also tune in well to the "flow" of life.
Crown Chakra out of balance
If your Crown Chakra is out of balance, you cannot connect with the cosmic energy. This can make you feel listless and lack energy and trust in the bigger picture. It can feel like we want to run away from ourselves. We ignore what we know deep inside, and we don't listen to our inner voice. For example, this can cause us to keep meeting with certain people over and over again, when it's not working for us. We also may not take good care of our bodies, choosing unhealthy foods. We may also block and ignore everything related to spirituality. This can manifest itself in psychological symptoms. You may suffer from anxiety, hysteria, delusions, fear of losing someone, and you may experience symptoms with the central nervous system or brain.
Connected to the physical body
The Crown Chakra is physically connected to your forehead, eyes, ears and frontal cavities. If your Crown Chakra is unbalanced you may experience headaches or mild dizziness, for example.
Color of the Crown Chakra
Your Crown Chakra has the color violet. This color represents transforming and opening to other dimensions. It is the center of trust, devotion, inspiration and positivity. From this chakra we establish a deep connection with ourselves and a greater universal energy.
Corresponding Zodiac Signs
Each gemstone has its own vibrational frequency. Just as words, feelings, thoughts and emotions (and really everything inside us and outside us) have their own energy and their own vibrational frequency, so do our chakras. The energy of these gemstones resonate with the energy of your Crown Chakra, and therefore help you open this chakra, for example by meditating with it and connecting (in your mind) with the energy of the stone.
