The crown chakra is situated at the top of the head. Its colour is violet, gold, or white, and it does not represent an element. It is our Divine connection to higher consciousness, the Alpha and the Omega, the collective unconscious, God/Goddess, Great spirit, or Source, and the Universe as a whole. It supports us in embracing up interconnectedness with all life, and our spiritual self. It governs our access to higher guidance, wisdom, soul-level memory, spiritual beliefs, and our higher self. It influences our ability to have faith, and the religious or philosophical beliefs we choose to is embrace. Related organs and parts of the body are the cerebrum, the brain, the central nervous system, endocrine system and the pineal gland, the scalp, in the hair.
When the crown chakra is balanced, we are able to see things from a higher perspective, as opposed to remaining stuck within our emotional or compartmentalised versions of reality. We have a higher idealism when it comes to the world and human potential. We have access to archetypal, ancestral, tribal, and higher dimensional knowledge and ideas, and can access the Akashic records and past-life memory. We have a sense of or a belief in a higher organising and creative intelligence, entity, or being (i.e God), and are open to the beliefs and philosophies of others. We are able to keep our own counsel and maintain healthy psychic and energetic boundaries, despite what others may try to compel us to think or believe. We have a strong and loving sense of ethical responsibility and a steadfast moral compass.
When the crown chakra is deficient, we experience an inability to think for ourselves or trust our own wisdom beliefs and convictions. We are easily swayed by the beliefs and philosophies of others, and will often develop a co-dependency on the authoritarian figures that represent these systems, to the point of embracing a cult or extreme religious dogma. Our spiritual growth feels blocked or a stagnated, and there is a marked inability to rise above and see the bigger picture as a whole. There is a resistance to believing in a higher power, and an apparent lack of faith. Ethical and moral boundaries are unclear and undeveloped. Physically, we may experience hair growth or hair loss issues and headaches.
If the crown chakra is excessive, we feel ungrounded spaced out, and have trouble managing day to day tasks or staying on top of details. There is a general lack of follow-through, a lack of accountability, and the belief that the realm of physical reality is secondary to that of the spiritual, and to our aspirations. We will frequently express our spiritual, moral, and ethical superiority two others, and hold our chosen beliefs and practises to be the only right and true way or path. We seek to impress our belief systems on others, and to accept any higher or spiritual guidance we receive from the ethers as being true and wise without caution or consideration. Physically, we will often experience headaches, dizziness, or vertigo, and can be prone to developing mental illness.
