The Crown Chakra is at the top of the head and is about enlightenment and being one with the world. A person with a balanced Crown Chakra 1s at peace with themself, have a charismatic personality, and are on their spiritual journey. An under-active chakra, the person might not be very aware of spirituality and probably quite rigid in their thinking. An over-active Crown Chakra often is someone intellectualizing things too much. They could be addicted to spirituality and probably ignoring bodily needs. Someone with a blocked or unbalanced chakra could be manic depressive, frustrated, undisciplined, always feel tired, or unable to make decisions.
The healing color associated with the Crown Chakra is violet and the gemstones are mostly clear or violet. Foods like plum and eggplant can nourish this chakra. However, this chakra is more “spirit” than “matter”. Therefore the Crown Chakra thrives on the sustenance that comes from sunlight, air, and love.
When do you need to work on your Crown Chakra? If you are depressed, suffering from a chronic illness or mental disorder, have a weak immune system, suffering from a sleep disorder, have no spiritual awareness or have a need for spiritual connection. Meditation, cardio, running or walking are wonderful exercises for this chakra.
