The Crown Chakra – Nourishing your Spirituality


Screen shot 2012-03-21 at 8.59.47 AMCONNECTING TO YOUR SPIRITUAL STRENGTH (excerpt from The Chakra Energy Diet)

Spiritual oneness is the goal of opening the Crown Chakra, the point of knowing and enlightenment. Many people feel let down by religious institutions and even god, lacking faith in a higher power or universal consciousness.

After my friend Julie died, all my energy centers were affected, but I recognized these emotional or mental issues commonly associated with the Crown Chakra – a feeling of aloneness, depression, and a loss of meaning. I prayed for Divine help and received a deep connection to universal love, to my friend, and a knowing that her spirit lived on.

The Seventh Chakra: The Crown Chakra is our highest energy center, located at the top of the head and extending above it about two inches. It represents liberation, humanitarianism, deep understanding, and spiritual growth, union with the higher self and the Divine.

Opening or balancing your Crown Chakra can bring a profound awakening, a connection to your spiritual nature as well as to cosmic consciousness.

Crown Chakra Healing Foods – Juicing, Purple/Pure Foods

Since the Crown Chakra is more spiritual than physical, it is not nourished with physical foods in the same way that they feed other chakras. The correlation between the Crown Chakra and food is to make it a spiritual experience, whether by purifying the body through fasting for religious reasons during Ramadan or Yom Kippur, giving up a special food for Lent, or adding prayer or grace before meals.

Affirmation or Grace before eating for the Crown Chakra:

“May this food bless and nourish my body and help support my spiritual purpose.”

Detoxifying JuiceDetoxification cleanses, such as juice fasting, can also benefit the Crown Chakra. I especially like juicing mangosteen, grown in Hawaii, with its luscious violet color, for a detoxifying cleanse. Mangosteen contains powerful antioxidants and immune system boosters called xanthones, natural chemical compounds which possess a variety of potent medicinal properties.

Substituting a juice for a meal once a day, or for 3 meals in one day will assist in cleansing and detoxifying the body and in opening the Crown Chakra. But check with a medical professional before attempting a longer juice fast if you have any metabolic or health issues.

Foods that are pure and unadulterated also help keep the Crown Chakra open and integrated with spirit, especially if you choose them with the intention of increasing the greater good. Pure foods include those organically grown without chemicals or genetic modification. For the Crown Chakra, you want to eat with a higher purpose in mind – for the good of all beings, and the good of the environment.

Crown Chakra Healing Activities

The Crown Chakra is connected to meditation and to prayer or devotion to a higher power. Prayer could mean anything from singing religious hymns or reciting formal prayers or psalms, to devotional chanting like kirtan.

Being in nature, breathing in sunlight and fresh air, will also energize the Crown Chakra. While in nature, do a nalu meditation, focusing on something beautiful – when you feel a sense of relaxation, it’s a good time to give thanks and pray for guidance from a higher power.

For yoga poses and a guided visualization that will assist in balancing the Crown Chakra, please see The Chakra Energy Diet.

YOUR CHAKRAS IMPACT YOUR FINANCES


Q: Becca, I’m unhappy with my job, both in my paycheck and the drudgery of the work. Any advice on which chakra I need to balance?

BECCA: I’m often asked how to tell which chakra is out of balance, and there are many ways that can give you an answer. I like using a crystal pendulum over the Bag of chakra stoneschakra centers, using a bag of chakra stones*, or muscle testing – all ways to measure the strength of the energy field. Of course, you can also determine which chakra you may need to balance based on your feelings and experiences.

BUT, and this is a big but, I always recommend starting at the Root Chakra and working your way up to balance all seven major chakras, because it’s rare to have just one chakra blocked or too open. Each energy center affects the others. In your case, it seems you may have an imbalance in both your Root Chakra – not feeling secure with your finances, and in your Crown Chakra – not finding meaning and purpose in your work.

IMBALANCED CHAKRAS EQUAL FINANCIAL DIFFICULTY

Let’s look at how each chakra center could be affecting your job and life’s work.

First, the Root Chakra gives you a sense of security and belonging. If your first chakra is out of balance, you may have a hard time fitting into a corporate culture if you’re working for someone else, and you may have a hard time finding your niche of customers if you start your own business.

The Sacral Chakra is not only associated with the flow of creativity and sexuality, but the flow of money. So if your second chakra is out of balance, you may experience a problem with cash flow and have a hard time stretching your paycheck to cover the rent. If you’re an entrepreneur, you may have a lack of creative ideas to propel your own business forward.

The Solar Plexus Chakra is the center of your personal power. If your third chakra is out of balance, you may find it difficult to assert your leadership skills. You’ll find it hard to ask for a promotion or raise if working for a company, or to grow a strong, successful business of your own.

The Heart Chakra is associated with love and caring. If your fourth chakra is out of balance, you won’t get along as well as you could with your coworkers or clients. You’ll find it hard to relate to their needs, and therefore, your efforts will bot be sufficient or they will miss the mark.

The Throat Chakra governs whether you are able to speak your truth. Are you able to convince your potential clients or boss of the effectiveness of what you’re offering? Strengthening your fifth chakra will enable you to believe in your own message and be much more effective at selling yourself and your products.

The Third Eye Chakra is where we receive information and ideas. Do you feel inspired at work? If you have your own business, do you feel guided in how to grow your company? Strengthening your sixth chakra will open you up to new channels of abundance.

The Crown Chakra is our direct connection to Spirit. If your seventh chakra is balanced, you’ll feel that you’ve found your meaning and purpose in life and express it in your work or other activities. When you work for the greater good, success will be yours.

So, how should you balance the seven chakras?

Guided visualization may be the easiest way for most people to get in touch with their chakras, and sense where there needs to be more attention paid. I offer a Chakra Meditation from my book, The Chakra Diaries, for free download on my website. When you balance a chakra, you will notice an improvement in all areas connected to that chakra – from physical symptoms to your finances.

If you know a specific chakra needs special attention, I recommend crystal healing, or mind-body healing using Dynamind, described in my books, Chakra Secrets and Balance Your Chakras, Balance Your Life. To balance your chakras along with me, try my DVD, Balance & Tone Your Chakras.

Namaste!
