The crown chakra is the seventh chakra and it is at the top of the "chakra ladder" which starts from the root chakra that grounds us on the Earth and progresses upward to the crown chakra which connects us with the universe and the Divine source of creation.
The gift of this chakra is experiencing unity and the selfless realization that everything is connected at a fundamental level. The energy of this chakra allows us to experience mystical oneness with everyone and everything in nature.
There is no intellectual knowing at the level of seventh chakra, but there is serenity, joy, and deep peace about life. You have a sense of knowing that there is a deeper meaning of life and that there is an order that underlies all of existence. The "way of the crown chakra" is the way of going beyond the limits of your own ego. It is the way of transcending the ego and knowing that all of creation is interconnected at a fundamental level. According to Tantric philosophy, the seventh chakra is both a receiver and giver of energy and consciousness. It receives energy to sustain life and it gives back the personal energy to unite with the collective pool of consciousness.
It is the meeting point between finite (the body and the ego) and infinite (the universe and soul). The thousand petal chakra embraces an attitude of gratitude for one's life. When we realize that everything is interconnected and that we are part of the larger scheme of life, we begin to live with gratitude, faith and trust, rather than filled with fear and anxiety.
The challenge of this chakra is to liberate the spirit - open to the divine - and at the same time stay firmly rooted deep in the ground. If the crown chakra is blocked on can feel constant frustration, migraines, depression, no spark of joy, destructive feelings. It is white or purple, in color and the stones associated with it are clear quartz, amethyst, and Oregon opal. Wearing purple glasses can help too!
The chakracise is to meditate for 12 minutes. Could be longer too but at least 12 minutes is necessary to stimulate the opening of the crown chakra. In meditating you are clearing your mind to make the crown chakra stronger. A stronger connection will allow you to feel more intuitive communication with you and your higher Self.
