The crown chakra is located at the top of the head. It governs all things to do with the mind, thought, the pineal gland, the central nervous system, the skull, head and brain.
The Crown Chakra is our connection to the higher vibrational universal energies. It is our link to the energy that is present in all things – the web of life, God, Source, Universal Energy, the Cosmos, the Light – whatever it is that you identify with, it is the Crown chakra that acts as our link between our physical bodies and these higher universal energies.
When the Crown Chakra is balanced and open we have a sense of peace, bliss, connection, guidance and complete faith in the guidance we receive. We recognise the Divine essence in all things and it allows for a sense of awe and wonder to be present as we witness the most mundane and everyday things. Using the analogy of electrical energy, if you imagine us as the electrical device, the Universe as the generator and Source energy as the electricity, then the Crown Chakra acts as kind of energetic plug socket. Its the point of connection and when it is clear and allowing the energy to flow smoothly we have a sense of deep belonging brought about by the sureness of unwavering Spiritual Faith. We feel connected, inspired, supported, and a sense of unity with the universe and with all things.
‘Maybe the present is a pixel in a much larger design,
If the picture’s resolution is a trillion x a trillion,
But the CPU display is only 1×1…
Well then its easy to assume that there is nothing but the room
In which we hide and not a WHOLE UNIVERSE outside.
I don’t know if any of this makes sense…
I don’t know if I should end it with an Amen,
I just know there’s a river in every raindrop
And a LOT of raindrops in the riverbed.’
Symptoms of Crown Chakra Imbalance.
- Sense of spiritual disconnection.
- Need to be accepted by others.
- No sense of purpose or direction.
- Hyper sensitivity to environment.
- Neurological disorders.
- Skin Disorders.
- Autoimmune Disorders.
- Lack of Inspiration.
- Spiritual Crisis.
- Lack of or loss of Faith.
- Ego driven.
- Brain Fog.
- Mental Blockages.
- Inability to still your mind.
- Crown Chakra blockages will have a knock on affect for all the lower chakras as this is the point of connection to Source and if this is blocked it will knock all the chakras out of balance so any of the symptoms mentioned in the previous blogs I have written can manifest as a result of Crown Chakra imbalances.
Crown Chakra Healing.
Colour: The colours for Crown Chakra healing are violet, purple, white, silver, gold and I also include grey. Violet and purple contain both red – grounding and linked to the root chakra; and Blue – Healing and linked to the throat chakra these are 2 opposing energies. Red holds the connection to our physical bodies and blue links us to the elements of Air and Cosmos and authenticity. Purple links us to spirituality, imagination and violet brings us into the energy of connectedness, peace, bliss and harmony and a state of being separated from our Ego which in turn leads to the sense of Oneness that occurs when our Ego is suspended and we are aware of the interconnected of all things. White represents purity, the angelic realms, The Light, awakening, newness, clarity and cleansing. Silver links us to the energies of protection and can help with connecting the Crown and Third Eye Chakras and Gold link us to Sacred energy and Abundance. This is another great colour to bring in to help connect, clear and replenish all of the chakras from the Crown down to the Root. Grey I bring into the Crown Chakra healing as it is the colour of Wisdom, Serenity, Balance and Calmness. Painting with a blend of these colours to create a galaxy scene is a great activity for Crown Chakra healing.
Elemental Healing: The element for the Crown Chakra is Cosmos. However since the Crown Chakra work is enhanced by connecting to all of the Chakras, balancing the Cosmos with all the other elements of Air, Water, Fire and Earth is helpful. Grounding before and after Crown chakra work is important to maintain the balance.
Journaling/Higher Self Connection Healing: The Higher Self is the root of our subjective consciousness and the Gateway for each of us into the Collective Consciousness – another term for Source Energy, Web of Life or God. In trying to understand this it helps if you can do this visualisation – imagine a tree with its roots going deep into the Earth and its branches reaching high into the sky. The Tree takes physical form and also extracts nourishment from the Earth as well as Water. It takes in warmth and light from the Sun and it releases Air as part of its respiratory cycle – therefore the tree is connected to all of the elements. Picture in your mind the chemical reactions that take place within the tree to make all these process of respiration, photosynthesis, growth, nourishment and expansion – this is what connects the tree to the element of the Cosmos. Picture the energy moving through the tree as all of these things happen within it, see the energy giving life to the tree, making it transform and grow – now in your mind remove the roots – remove the trunk – remove the leaves – remove the branches – all that is left is the energy – the link to the Cosmos that gave the tree the capacity for growth and expansion – this is the same energy as our Higher Self.
Ego Separation: Reading the quote I have included above from the amazing poem Riverbed by Guante (please follow the link above to take a listen to this its phenomenal and one of my favourite things in the world) the universe is the picture with the resolution of 1 trillion by 1 trillion, when the Crown Chakra is balanced we are fully aware of the Collective Consciousness and our connection to it. But the Ego is a stubborn part of our psyche. Despite the full picture having a resolution of a trillion x a trillion Ego steps in and only allows the CPU (central processing unit – ie our psyche/brain) to have a resolution of 1×1. This leads to the belief that we are separate from the Collective Consciousness which in turn leads to a sense of isolation and disconnection. If we go back to the analogy of the tree, Ego would immediately return the picture of the tree back into our minds. Then Ego would go on to solidify the tree to make sure we remain unaware of all the amazing chemical reactions taking place inside it. Ego would allow for the elements of Earth, Air, Water and Fire – these are necessary for physical and material survival – but the Spiritual and Cosmic part of the tree would be hidden and denied. The implications of this then leads to the belief that the tree was solitary and not a part of a wider universe with intricate systems connecting each of us to literally everything and everyone. The Ego doesn’t want to know about anyone but itself. While the Ego is not entirely a negative thing – it is necessary to help us with our relationships to others and to give us the drive to have goals and the motivation to action them – if the Ego and it’s perceived separation from the Collective is given full reign then we as individuals will become more and more disconnected and our need for other’s approval becomes all important. Seclusion becomes a threat to our well being and solitude becomes isolating and lonely. So it is necessary to practise detachment, while in Third Eye detachment work we focus on detaching from the outside world to avoid them holding sway over our inner world; in this instance we detach from a inner part of ourselves in order to connect in a healthy and balanced way with the outer world and the Universe as a whole.

Angelic Healing: In this meditation I will be bringing in my main guide Archangel Metatron to help connect us to our Higher Selves and Archangel Sandalphon to anchor us to the Earth and keep us grounded. Archangel Raguel is the Archangel of Justice and balance so it is fitting that I will be recording this meditation with the energies of the Libra Full Moon. Archangel Raguel also helps to settle conflict and he keeps lower energies in check so he is perfect to call in to assist in the process of Ego separation.
