It is only when we silent the blaring sounds of our daily existence that we can finally hear the whispers of truth that life reveals to us, as it stands knocking on the doorsteps of our hearts.
We have finally arrived at our final chakra highlight for the year – the 7th Chakra, Crown Chakra or Sahasrara in Sanskrit, which means 1000 petalled lotus. This chakra is located at the top of our head and it’s color is white or violet. This chakra is our connection to the pure consciousness as the crown chakra allows our physical lives an access point to a place of higher consciousness. At this level one can transcends the physical and enters the realm of pure thought or pure consciousness, ultimately reaching the seat of the One Mind or Infinite Intelligence.
While the concepts of this chakra may seem a bit intangible we can, and do, experience the state of this chakra in our daily lives as it relates to the physical you—with health, relationships, wealth, environment, and your possessions – through thought and all the chakras below. Ultimately, these thoughts and life experiences are experienced starting at the base of our energy channels, hence passing through all the other chakras where they take root and begin their journey upward into physical manifestation. How fast (or slow) these thoughts manifest into physical reality depends largely upon how balanced or open the thinker’s chakras are. An open and direct passage through the chakras allows thoughts to quickly come into being, while blockages and closures hamper, delay, or stop the physical manifesting process.
When developed and in balance, this chakra brings us knowledge, wisdom, understanding, spiritual connection, and bliss, ultimately allowing inner communications with our spiritual nature to take place. You will more easily have access to your intuitive nature and inner guidance. When this chakra is out of balance you can limit your vision of what is beyond your material existence and it may be difficult for you to connect with the world around you and to find the joy in life. Your sense of wonder, spirituality, and creativity will be lacking. The world can be a dense physical place without energy. You may become very materialistic, stuck in the past, and worried about the future.
As you move through you day and the rest of this month as we dive into the depths our crown chakra try to find a few moments to repeat one of these associated mantras. By saying one of these mantra to your self you will begin to clear away blockages moving closer to a state of pure consciousness.
“I am open to the joy of my universal connection to all beings.”
“I receive and welcome the intuition of my inner spirit.”
“My existence moves beyond the material world and touches the divine source.”
“The joy of my inner spirit lives in me and is expressed through me.”
