Crown chakra healing — path to spiritual connection & peace
What is the crown chakra?
The crown chakra allows us to live freely, feeling a sense of wholeness, oneness, & connection to self & others, DESPITE what may be happening in the world or in our own world.
The crown chakra is the pathway to our higher spiritual most divine selves. It’s also an energy center that often most ppl experience a block or imbalance in, which is what disconnects so many from their soul.
Located at the top of our head, the crown chakra is the seventh chakra, or energy center, that all of us carry. This chakra, when healthy & opened, allows us to tap into & connect with spirit.
The meaning of the crown chakra is all about spiritual connection. It can also be seen as an access point to help us experience more peace (or zen).
“As Above, So Below”
When you are aligned to the crown chakra, you experience life in a way that you were always meant too. This means you experience more pleasure out of living, more gratitude, joy, peace, connection. Your fears/anxieties/worries/stressors/depression that you once may have struggled with begin to subside/go away. You become one with the divine spirit/energy within. You trust. You surrender. You come alive.
When the crown chakra is imbalanced or blocked, common symptoms that ppl often experience are feelings of depression, a sense of disconnection from life, and a lack of empathy.
A blocked crown chakra tends to be the result of:
- living in stressful environments
- living a fast-paced lifestyle
- having unresolved trauma, not dealing with it
- holding on to deeply rooted core beliefs which may have developed in childhood and into adulthood
But overall, having a blocked crown chakra is the result of being conditioned to believe that we are separate from one another. This idea, which is driven by the ego, is what keeps us feeling isolated, leaving us in this false state of division, and thus what opens us up to unnecessary suffering.
We must learn to understand & accept that we are not separate for one another, we are one with each other & with it all. The delusion that we are separate is what keeps us in great pain. Its a belief that can & should be released/ shifted. As the ancient principle writes, “as above, so below”— meaning the thoughts you choose to believe in your mind, is what reflects outward in your reality. So essentially, your life is the byproduct of the thoughts and beliefs you choose to hold on too & believe to be true.
What blocks the crown chakra
Once you’ve opened or activated the crown chakra, it doesn’t mean it’ll stay this way forever.
The crown chakra can be blocked, reopened, and blocked again & again. Why? Because well life is unpredictable. Things happen that can throw us off balance. Family issues, going through a midlife crisis, expectations not being met—are just some common examples of situations that can block the crown chakra. But this is normal & just something important to understand.
It’s okay to need crown chakra healing from time to time. Because truly, nobody can keep their crown chakra opened permanently.
With that said, once we can learn how to identify when we’re feeling off or that our crown chakra is imbalanced, & learn how to cope with it, we can reduce the long term impact of a blockage and get back to feeling whole again as soon as possible.
Symptoms of a blocked crown chakra
The crown chakra can be imbalanced in two ways & can produce different symptoms depending on what you’re experiencing…
You can have an imbalance where your crown chakra is OVERACTIVE, and this is noted through symptoms of—
- Cynicism (a belief that nobody can be taken serious, nobody can be trusted, that everyone has a secret motive/hidden agenda, that ppl only do things for self benefit/interest…)
- Apathy (feeling a sense of emptiness, disconnect , or lack of interest out of life. Unmotivated, low energy, depressed feeling)
- Disconnecting from your spirituality (stop meditating, no longer see synchronicities, feel more alone, angry, aggressive, lost)
- Self sabotage ( pretty self explanatory here)
An UNDER-ACTIVE crown chakra can look like —
- Confusion about what you want to do/what direction you want to take in your life
- Lack of inspiration
- Desire to oversleep/close in from the world.
No matter the cause of your blockage, you CAN learn to unblock chakras in a simple, practical way.
If you would like to connect with your Soul more deeply, crown chakra healing is an excellent place to start.
