Crown Chakra

 the crown chakra is our perfect pinnacle of being. This is where we find our enlightenment and where we connect to the universe and all its cosmic greatness. It is the source of our highest vibrations, our pure embodied energy, and our most sublime state. The crown chakra is located at the top of the head and is associated with golden-white and violet colours. An open crown chakra can help us find our place in the world and see the bigger picture. It also helps us to find our feet in spiritual practice and opens us up to the gifts and messages that the universe has for us. This chakra is connected to a sense of purpose, our spiritual well-being, and our feelings of satisfaction. Crystals that suit the crown chakra are vessels for the highest vibrations and are master healers.

balanced vs unbalanced crown chakra

Signs of an unbalanced crown chakra can be confusion, headaches, insomnia, feeling directionless or pointless, nightmares, and loss of a spiritual sense of being.

Signs of a balanced crown chakra can be clarity, wisdom, feeling spiritually connected, acceptance and lucid dreaming.

Crystals That Perfectly Complement The Crown Chakra
  •  Labradorite - dreams, wisdom, and accessing higher portals

  •  Amethyst - sublime serenity, aura enhancement, and easing headaches

  •  Clear Quartz - the master healer, this gem is the ultimate amplifier

  •  Selenite - rejuvenation and connecting with angel realms

The highest chakra – our crown of connection and spirituality to the universe, the Sahasrara is our seventh energy center and the home of higher consciousness, unity, and life purpose. With its bright violet and white colouring, its cosmic energy, and boundary-breaking vibes, unlocking the crown chakra can be our greatest adventure.

A bridge between the physical world we feel beneath our feet and all the secrets of the stars, the crown chakra is where we go to connect with all that sits beyond our earthly understanding. When our crown chakra is cracked open and all the light and energy of our body connect with the universe, we can truly leap to our highest learning. Those with an open crown can find themselves in beautiful spiritual balance. They radiate with peace and light. They are grounded and give themselves over to trust rather than being led by fear. They are open to all the great teachings of the universe and they are surrounded by abundance. The joys of a crown chakra cosmic connection can awaken every cell in the body and grant you a deep feeling of belonging and meaning.

For those who have a blockage or an imbalance in the crown chakra, you may feel the weight of cynicism on your shoulders. You may also dismiss spirituality or feel overwhelmed by experiences that invite you to explore deeper. You could feel locked into loneliness, unhappiness, malaise, and lack of direction in life. You may not understand your purpose and could even be trapped in a victim mentality and unable to take responsibility for your own life. Even for those who have gone the opposite way and have an overwhelmed crown chakra, this can lead to a loss of balance and grounding. You may feel spacey and out of contact on a human level. Balance is everything when it comes to the Sahasrara.

Being soaked in high spiritual vibes, it’s no surprise that crystals are a perfect companion for those wanting to open their crown chakra. All crystals come with cosmic energy, but some are more weighted towards the ways of this world and others thrum with higher consciousness. These gems tend to be blessed with the colours purple and white and are brimming with ethereal properties.

Take a look at these healing crystals for getting access to your highest chakra…

The serene queen of them all, the Amethyst stone  is every inch the crown chakra gem.

Sugilite brings its high purpose purple hues to connect your heart to your head and makes opening the crown chakra a simpler process.

Feminine energy flows through the heart chakra, the third eye chakra, and the luminous crown chakra with the radiant white glow of Moonstone. Just like the orb that brings light to our dark nights, the Moonstone is a gem that heals gently and doesn’t overwhelm us when it comes to spiritual growth. It reminds us that we are part of this universe and that spirituality can have strong feminine yin energy that doesn’t require chasing, pushing, or trying to sculpt yourself into a certain way. Through acceptance, embracing change, and learning to let go of that which doesn’t serve us, we open ourselves up to receiving abundance and the heavenly gifts of the universe.
