This chakra is a direct connection to the Higher Self, Spirit, God, Consciousness, whichever name you choose to give it. This is where the ideas connect with you.
The path of creation/manifestation goes like this:
7th chakra = idea is created
6th chakra = you imagine it…daydream
5th chakra = you give voice to it…share it with others
4th chakra = create a relationship with it…fully accept the idea
3rd chakra = act on it = give it your energy
2nd chakra = achieve connection…it becomes part of you
1st chakra = it is manifest…you see physical results
This process is true regardless of what you are creating: it could be a business, losing weight (creating you), giving up an addiction (again creating you), having a child, moving to a new home.
Characteristics of a balanced crown chakra:
~Ability to question and analyze
~Rigid belief systems
~Disconnection from spirit
~Living ‘in your head’
So, how does this play out at work?
Have you ever experienced a time when a problem arose and you became frustrated, angry or fed up? Then…more than likely within the hour you developed a headache (along with elevated blood pressure!)
Then you have experienced the effects of having a blocked crown chakra.
During times of challenge and change we need to EXPAND our crown chakra rather than contract it! How do I do that you ask?
Well…it’s rather simple actually.
During the moment where you begin to become angry or frustrated instead of pouting, moaning, whining, bitching or otherwise asking Why this is happening…ask yourself How.
How can you work with this?
How can you use this?
How can you turn this around?
By asking How we are living in the realm of possibility.
You move from the ‘It has to be this way’
To the ‘gray area’
Try this for one day
I promise you, your headache will go away!
Notice the shift
