A seven-month editorial series began with the
Root Chakra (Sept), Sacral Chakra (Oct), Solar Plexus (Nov), Heart (Dec),
Throat (Jan), Brow (Feb), March is all about the Crown Chakra. What is it? What
organs are affected? How can I support my energy body health?
Chakras are an integral part of physical, psychological and
spiritual functions. Chakras are whirling energy centers correlated to
acupuncture points. These energy centers control and energize major organs.
When they malfunction, the vital organs become sick or dis-eased because they
can become unbalanced. Lack of balance occurs when there is not enough (or
conversely too much) life energy or prana.
The Crown is the seventh of seven chakras. It is located at the
top of your head. Also known as Sahasrara
(Sanskrit), it represents your spiritual connection to others and the universe.
Universal flow of energy happens when you awaken this chakra.
The Butterfly is associated with the crown. It symbolizes renewal,
transformation and enlightenment, as it connects one to universal wisdom.
The frequency to open the crown
is 936 Hz. The pituitary gland (secondarily with the pineal and the
hypothalamus), works together to regulate the endocrine system which is all of
the body’s biological processes. When the crown chakra is unbalanced, it could
lead to hair loss, chronic fatigue, amnesia, coordination issues, chronic
headaches and migraines.
Since the psychological
function is all about clear perspective and spiritual understanding, a balanced
crown chakra gives you the ability to stay in gratitude and compassion with a
strong intuition. When it malfunctions there are issues with self knowledge and
inability to learn.
Violet and white are the colors of
spirituality. They bring a strong emotion of letting go, combined with the joy
of transformation. Wear them!
Foods to support this chakra
are high-alkaline water and foods. Fasting is also supportive.
Try essential oils such as
Rosewood, White Lotus, German Chamomile, Rose Geranium and Blood Orange.
A recommended yoga pose is Rabbit Pose. Sit on your heels and shins with
a straight spine. Reach your hands back and grab your ankles. Inhale and reach
the crown of your head towards the sky. Exhale, curl your chin into your chest
and then continue with the rest of your spine until the top of your head comes
to rest on the mat. Inhale, lift your hips off of your heels, pushing your head
gently into the mat as you push into your shins and top of your feet for
balance.. Hold for 3-5 breaths.
The crystals/gems are
Amethyst, Clear Quartz, Selenite, Howlite, Labradorite, Sugilite , Lapis Lazuli
Affirmations include: “I am
open to letting go of my attachments.”
“I live in the present moment.”
