So I am sure that if you have done any browsing and reading you have come across the word “chakra” and maybe have had a few questions and not too many really clear answers. Well I am going to do my best to give you clear answers and make it as simple as I can so that you learn to utilize your Chakras. So I plan on doing one at a time and I will describe the location, the color associated with it and what each Chakra is intended for. I will end the series with how important they are to use together and when it is a good time to activate them plus some exercises along the way to get them going! Ready?
We are going from top to bottom and that means we are going to start with the Crown Chakra, can you guess where that is? If you guessed on top of your head then we are to a good start. I will start by telling you how I came to even get involved with Chakras and how I was using them and not understanding what they were. When I would get a message from Spirit i would get a substantial amount of pressure on top of my head, so much that I would feel like I was wearing a ball cap or had sunglasses pressed down on top of my head. I had no idea that this was a Chakra at work, it wasn’t until much later that I realized what it was and that was due to lots of research and reading and watching endless youtube videos. Now, do you ever feel that? If you don’t that’s ok because I am going to give you a simple tip to help you focus on it. Then we can talk about how important it is to use and what it does. Ready for you first excercise?
YES YOU ARE! This ones easy, find a ball cap or a sweat band or anything else you can put on top of your head that we can adjust to be a little tighter than it is comfortable. (Make sure the placement isn’t down low over your forehead, it should be higher than midway of your forehead.) If you can’t run get one right now that is ok, you can do it later. When you put the hat on I want you to adjust it just one click tighter than you usually wear it, once you’ve done that we can start on the focus and intention. Let’s get our focus on! Ok, so you have something on your head and it should be a little tight, not cut off circulation tight. Once that is done I want you to take a few breaths and close your eyes. Once you have done that go ahead and go through your relaxing method, whatever it is that you do before a meditation to release the tension you hold in your body, if you don’t have one and you have started here please go back and read my post about the The Third eye and learn that meditation. Once you have become relaxed you should really be paying attention to the pressure on your head, it is probably hard to focus with that pressure up there right? Yup it is! Now ask yourself, is that a familiar feeling that pressure or is it new? If it’s familiar and you don’t have any medical issues then you have been feeling pressure on your Crown Chakra for a while, and if it is new then you now know what it feels like! Yes! This is what it feels like to have pressure on your Crown Chakra, it can get to the point of having headaches or even neck aches because you are backed up, so to speak.
Now, this is not going to be something that happens over night if you haven’t felt it before. I promise though you will begin to feel it if you practice. The point is to wear the hat and become comfortable getting to know the feeling and understanding that your Crown Chakra is very powerful. I would say to do this at least once a day, maybe while you are watching TV or scrolling through your Instagram on the couch. Just put on the hat and remember what that feels like, this way when you start to feel it and you aren’t wearing the hat you know that your Crown is opening to new information! Seriously, it is going to feel strange when you feel the pressure and start feeling the top of your head to see if you put a hat on or left glasses there and forgot. Now another good indication that you have been activating your Crown Chakra is that you get a tingle on the top of your scalp, it is a tickle but it is absolutely an indication that your hard work is paying off. Please do not be frustrated if this takes a little while, we are here to learn and practice!
All right so we have the first part down, you have learned to focus on the Crown Chakra. Now you may be asking yourself “What does this Chakra do?” and you would be right to ask because you’ve worked hard to start feeling it! The list of what the Crown Chakra does goes on and on, we are going to talk about a few of them and keep it simple then we will talk about setting intentions and making it work for you! What does it do? Well let’s start with the color associated with it, and that color is violet or purple. There is a meaning behind the color and I suggest you go look it up, I don’t want to go into it here because there is so much and it will take away from what we are doing, ok. This Chakra is obviously located on the top of your head and that is why we did the hat thing and focused up there. Now when you are trying to take in new things your Crown Chakra is like the open top part of a bucket, it is where all the spiritual knowledge goes. It pores in the top and then gets filtered down to all the other Chakras along the path. It is the first stop for the information you receive from the Universe or Spirit and even when you meet someone, and let me be clear this is not a physical act that the brain is completing. This is part of your Spirit Body doing what it was intended to do, take in information from the Universe and help you navigate life. Your Crown is also the spot that Light is taken in, whether you know it or not this is where your Spiritual energy is taken in from. That is why when we do meditations we imagine the light flowing from the top to the bottom, not because of gravity or any other reason. Plain and simple, the Crown is the starting point! Some time in the future we may go into other things that the Crown is for but lets just leave it with these two things and set some intentions to get them going!
The first intention we can set is one that you have already been doing if you have been doing meditations, letting the energy flow in and down to cleanse yourself and help relax your body. So this intention is fairly simple and even if you aren’t set to meditate and need a pick me up I want you to try this: Close your eyes (don’t do this if you are driving or doing something else of that nature!) and look up. Focus on the pressure that you have felt with the hat, when you remember what that feels like go ahead and relax your eyes. Take a deep breath and think of the golden ball of light over your head, have it turn into liquid and pour right over your head. Say this either out loud or in your head “The light is energy and it renews me.” That easy! After you practice it a few times and get used to it you will be doing it all day and not even realizing it! That is the first intention, renewing your energy and that is because you cannot do anything else if you are tired! Ready for the second intention? Keep reading!
The second intention goes like this: Do the same thing you did for the first intention up to the point of having the gold ball of light over your head. This time instead of the light turning to liquid and pouring I want you to imagine you have a bright purple, way to big crown on top of your head and that ball of light is hovering right above it. Now, you need to tell that light that it is going to be all of the thoughts and ideas of the things you are intended to know at this moment. Say this “Please be the inspiration and information that I want and deserve.” Now let the ball fall into your crown. What has come to you? Write down or draw what you feel or have seen, describe it and do not hold back because that is doubt and doubt has no place here! Do not be surprised at what comes to you, even if what you write or draw makes no sense that is ok, because once we get better at this things will be better. Imagine you are at the eye Doctor and they are doing that thing with all the lenses and you have to figure what lens helps you see best. Things will come into focus, we just need to keep coming back and practicing! So your second intention is one that will help leed to wisdom and spiritual enlightenment and that is where we want to go!
Use intention number one all day, it is great practice and will keep you feeling great! Use intention number two anytime you are feeling stuck or are going to attempt to do some psychic work, heck use it for inspiration writing or making music. There is no limit! Be creative and let me know how it goes! Write to me here, through email firstname.lastname@example.org or over at my Instagram scottythenjmedium. Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you enjoyed reading this and leave me some feedback please! Feel free to ask questions and I will answer you best to my knowledge and if I don’t know the answer I will find it for you! Our next Chakra will be the The Third Eye, which we kind of covered but I will go more in-depth and explain how it works in conjunction with the Crown and how it helps with the other Chakras. At the end of the series we will go over all the crystals that are associated with these Chakras and how they help amplify the effects. Stay tuned! Thanks again!
