Painting the Chakras – Crown Chakra

The seventh chakra located at the top of the head connects us to our higher consciousness. When off balance there may be depression, an inability to learn, rigid thoughts on religion, constant confusion and a fear of alienation. When in balance, we live in the now with a strong trust in our inner guidance.

The colour of the Crown Chakra is Violet and also White and Gold.

The Crown Chakra is connected with all the elements and with thought in particular, so meditative and spiritual practices, singing hymns or spiritual songs, prayer, chanting and group spiritual practices are all healing and balancing.

Visualise a lotus flower, ultimate purity of energy, inside the top of your head, opening and becoming larger, enlarging your field of consciousness, spreading out into the universe. Feel connected to the higher energies and free from lower energy fields that drain you.

Repeat as often as you wish, with eyes closed the following positive affirmations:

I understand. I understand the impermanent nature of reality. I accept and honour the spirit within me and all living things. I embrance the unity of all beings and release all attachment. I invite sacred transformation. I am complete.

The Crown Chakra is associated with the element thought, so ease into a meditative state of reflection and allow in the energies of nature through pure therapy essential oils. Diffuse incense or light a candle and focus on its flame. Recommended aromas: Sandelwood, Saffron, Lotus and Jasmine.

Since this Chakra is more spiritual than physical, it is not nourished with food in the same way that they feed other Chakras. It’s food is simply prayer, maditation and fasting. The vibrations of this Chakra often prefer no food at all. Consider a detox or fast to energise the Crown Chakra. Try fresh fruit and vegetable juices and drink lots of water.
