7 Facts About the Crown Chakra You Should Know

Posted on April 19, 2017

Working with chakras is popular these days, because it′s easy to do and very effective. Chakra is the Sanskrit word for ‘wheel,′ and it′s used to describe the swirling wheels of energy that run along the spine.

They start with the root chakra at your tailbone, and go up to the crown chakra at the top of your head. When they′re open and functioning properly, life is good! However, when they get imbalanced, either being over stimulated or under active, then problems can occur, let′s delve deeper into the crown chakra.

1) Where is the Crown Chakra?

The crown chakra is located at the top of your head, right where the ‘crown′ of your hair is. It′s the uppermost of the seven chakras. It resonates with the musical note of B. This chakra draws energy up through the rest of the energy centers.

For this chakra to be balanced, they all need to be working optimally, too. The crown chakra is associated with the highest levels of spiritual awareness and enlightenment. It correlates to the brain, the pituitary gland, and higher consciousness.

Spiritual energy and well-being are cultivated here. It′s where you transcend your own ego and can touch the divine. Devotion and selflessness occur, and you feel at one with the universe.

2) What Color is the Crown Chakra?

The crown chakra is represented by the color violet (a lighter, richer, more pink-purple than the third-eye-chakra.) Sometimes it′s depicted as gold, or clear. Of course, this is just the color associated with it; the actual chakra has no color of its own.

Violet is the color of transformation. Gold is the color of perfection. Clear is the color of purification and healing, and also contact with your higher self and your spirit guides.There are many ways that you can use these colors to help bring your crown chakra back into balance.

Wearing clothing in the colors mentioned or using healing crystals, precious gems, and minerals in those hues will enhance that energy. If you′re working with reiki healing stones, choose the light purple one.

If you are using a chakra pendulum to heal this area, then you want to focus on the purple area of the wand, meditate and imagine the healing energies flowing into your crown chakra.

3) What is the Normal Function of the Crown Chakra?

The crown chakra is linked directly to your relationship with your divinity. It′s where your holy ecstasy is found, and where your spirit communes with your spirit guides and your divinity, however you perceive them to be. Enlightenment, guidance from higher powers, and spiritual phenomenons are all associated with the crown chakra.

When it′s open and balanced, you′ll find great joy and connectedness here. Your connection to the spiritual aspects of your life is strong, and your faith unshakable. You feel that you′re led by your guides and masters into a place of oneness and purpose. Your life is filled with happiness and satisfaction.

Hi! I’m Charla Stone and I learned astrology and mysticism way back in the 1970s. I've spent the last four decades using the stars, tarot, runes, crystals, totems, and more to bring light and guidance to others. I’m just an old hippie at heart who has traveled the world to learn of its cultures. I’ve been published online and in print—which still rather surprises me, as this isn’t something I do, it’s just who I am! When I’m not writing or doing readings, I’m spending time in my garden or the art studio, or with my beloved dogs. Read More by Charla Stone
