The Crown Chakra & Chakra Therapy
The seventh chakra is the Crown Chakra, in Sanskrit – Sahasrara, what is translated as “thousand fold”. This chakra is located on the top of the head. It is responsible for energizing pineal gland, brain and body. This is one of the main points through which Prana enters the body. Because it is connected to other chakras, any disharmony in the work the Crown Chakra is reflected in other centers. The symbol of this chakra is representing infinity nimbus of thousands white petals of which each is tuned to higher states of consciousness. The Crown
Chakra radiates purple and gold, which are the colors of meditation.
Sahasrara is the center which connects to the spiritual dimensions. When the Crown Chakra is open, we experience connection with everything and everyone. We feel that we are a part of the universe connected with the Divine Being. The Crown Chakra is the center of our spiritual needs and fulfillment. Being awake, it opens an opportunity to benefit from the unlimited space and time. What we understood intellectually, then intuitively, becomes clear understanding.
Harmonious functioning of the Crown Chakra
There is no blockages of the Crown Chakra, it can only be more or less open or developed. Working harmoniously, it provides a sense of communication between the inner being and outer life. Consciousness becomes quiet and deep. When the Crown Chakra functions properly, there is a chance to become enlighten; people cannot regress in their development. Individual self converts into the universal self. There is an understanding of higher spiritual truths that one begins to receive and use in everyday life. One begins to understand that the world of matter is the world of illusion. Internally, a person is calm, balanced, accepting things as they are, without a judgment.
Disharmonious functioning of the Crown Chakra
Undeveloped seventh chakra can cause separation and lack of a sense of “belonging”, which causes fear. Fear, as a negative low vibrating energy, restricts growth by blocking harmonious cooperation of all chakras. When the seventh chakra is closed, the rejection of the spiritual sphere, atheism, scepticism, the cult of mind and logical thinking may appear. Disharmony of this chakra may cause opposite reactions too. One, forgetting about the matter, may be preoccupied with the spiritual sphere. Spirituality can, but need not, be an escape from the routine of everyday life, problems in a relationship, lack of work, unfulfilled dreams. When one is not well grounded and internally aligned, the inner confusion may cause surrendering to the will of others, especially authority figures, with hope that others will magically solve his/her problems. Therefore, people with depression, having a weak will, can easily be attracted by a guru, whose strength rises with adoration of his “faithful” ones.
The Root Chakra and the Crown Chakras are the two ends of the same line. Harmony is achieved when both, the first and seventh, chakras are open; only then the energy is balanced and flows harmoniously.
