WHAT ARE SOME BLOCKS THAT COME UP?
If you’re feeling depressed or if you come from a family that was overly religious and didn’t encourage any questioning, or if you constantly live in your head, your crown chakra might need to be balanced.
A BALANCED CROWN CHAKRA
A healthy and open crown chakra means all blockages in any other chakras are dissolved, for you are truly open and connected with yourself and the divine. You are a vessel through which universal energy can flow without any interference from ego. You are at one with all that is.
when clear, it enables one to see the truth concerning ideals, materialistic pursuits, self-limiting concepts, pride, and vanity; it further allows one to experience continuous self-awareness and conscious detachment from personal emotions.
A balanced crown chakra connects you with messages from higher realms. It can be experienced as a pressure on the top of the head. You can create miracles and transcend the laws of nature, by effortlessly accessing the unconscious
and the subconscious. when your crown centre is balanced, you are:
- open minded about different belief systems
- able to question, spiritually connected have
- wisdom and mastery and a broad understanding
- intelligent, thoughtful, aware, open minded
- able to perceive, analyse and assimilate information
A DEFICIENT (DEFENSIVE) CROWN CHAKRA
A deficient chakra means you have a weakness or avoidance around the issues of the chakra. If it is deficient, it can cause us to ridicule spirituality, be cynical and rigid in our thoughts, or be apathetic and overly materialistic.
when the crown is deficient we often hold rigid, and narrow views. we may find it hard to learn about or accept beliefs different from our own. Other people may see us as a know-it-all, as someone who would rather be right than happy.
We may have a strong belief in our limitations, or the limitations around us. we will be operating on unexamined beliefs. A deficient crown chakra can leave us closed off to spirituality and the possibility that more exists than can be perceived with our five senses.
Symptoms of Deficiency:
- spiritual cynicism
- learning difficulties
- rigid belief systems
- excess in lower chakras
- materialism, greed, domination of others.
AN EXCESSIVE (OVER COMPENSATING) CROWN CHAKRA
If a chakra is excessive, you overcompensate with actions to try to heal that chakra.
When the crown chakra is excessive we live in our heads and can find it difficult to connect with the reality of the body.
An excess in the seventh chakra often occurs with people who are highly intellectual at the expense of balancing the energy of the mind with that of the heart, body and emotions.
When there is too much information and knowledge in the mind, without the grounding of the lower chakras, there can be a strong sense of overwhelm, and if this continues over time, can cause a break with reality.
- over intellectualisation
- spiritual addiction
- dissociation from body.
