The Crown Chakra is located on top of the head. The color of this chakra is violet. The parts of the body affected by this chakra are the brain, nervous system, the pituitary gland, and the pineal gland.
This chakra represents that part of our consciousness concerned with perceptions of unity or separation. This chakra shows our relationship with Spirit. It represents our connection with our biological father, which becomes the model for our relationship with authority, and ultimately with Spirit. It is the level of the soul. When one experiences a sense of separation from their father, they close the crown chakra, and experience a sense of isolation and aloneness, as if they are in a shell, and having difficulty with feeling contact with those around them. Thought processes tend to justify and maintain the sense of aloneness.
The function of the Crown Chakra is to open us to the light of Spirit which is externally connected to the Source. This chakra channels the energy of that part of ourselves, often called the Higher Self, and embraces us within its healing and protective light, When we are open to receiving the love and wisdom from our Higher Self we are filled with the energy of the Divine, guiding and inspiring us in all we do.
Illnesses associated with this chakra are stress, worry, hysteria, right-left brain balance, headache, and depression.
The negative archetype of the Crown Chakra is the Egotist. When this chakra is closed, we experience an archetype which, because of the high degree of conscious development and success it has in the world, is often resistant to developing its spiritual development. It can be described as proud, arrogant and full of its own self importance. The Egotist is rooted in the belief that only it is responsible for its personal achievements in life.
The Egotist stubbornly refuses any interest in spirituality or even acknowledging the presence of a guiding and protecting presence in its life. It is convinced that everything is within its control. Its arrogance prevents it from being humble or for asking for help from others when it needs support or cannot find true peace with itself.
The healthy archetype of the Crown Chakra is the Guru. This archetype is the highest level of responsibility, vitality and empowerment. As we move into the Guru archetype, the realm of possibilities expands to the infinite and we tap into the joy and bliss of our spirit. Here, we are one with the Source, we are whole and complete.
This archetype knows that it is the Source of all its experience and accepts conscious responsibility for every aspect of its life. It turns what has been unacceptable into acceptable, what has been dark into light and what has been hidden into what can be loved and embraced.
Crystals to balance the Crown Chakra are Amethyst, Diamond, Sugilite, Purple Fluorite, and Clear Quartz Crystal. These stones can be carried in a pocket, placed in the area of the Crown Chakra or made into an essence.
Imagine your Crown Chakra. The color of this chakra should be a beautiful, clear violet. If you see any other color, remove it and imagine the chakra being filled with violet energy. Once you are able to imagine the proper color filling this chakra, imagine it spinning in a clockwise direction. Spin it faster and faster as you fill it with violet energy.
