How can the Crown chakra benefit you?
When your Crown chakra is open, you will feel:
Physically and spiritually balanced
Connected to Universal energy
Like a successful human being
Peaceful and grateful
Happy with your circumstances
Surrounded by abundance
What is the Crown Chakra?
The Crown chakra is your body's spiritual mecca. Whereas your ideas and innovations come through the Third Eye chakra, your intuitions and spiritual inspirations are received through the Crown chakra.
This is your seventh out of seven major chakras. In Sanskrit, the Crown chakra is called Sahasrara and is symbolized by a circle surrounded by a thousand petals.
It is connected to the element of Ether. This isn't an element in itself, but just like the Crown chakra, this is an indescribable force related to the collective consciousness, the Cosmic Oneness, and your spiritual awakening.
What is the meaning of the Crown chakra?
The Crown chakra is a two-way antenna. You receive spiritual inspiration and you emit your desires into the Universe. It is all about intentions, manifestation, and the Law of Attraction.
Emitting your message into the Great Universal Matrix requires a free-flowing chakra. When your intention is clear and your desire is strong, your Crown chakra is open to receive the answers to your messages.
The Crown chakra is your direct line to your Higher Self. In the spirit world, your potential is unlimited. This is the energy you want to bring down to your physical life.
Why do you need to balance the Crown chakra?
You need to balance your Crown chakra so that you are living a well-rounded life. Instead of living day-by-day in a meaningless routine, you want to connect with your Higher Self, Spirit Guides, and Guardian Angels.
The magic in the world thrives in a world just beyond your physical eyes. In the realm of emotions, feelings, hopes, and dreams, live all of the elusive sensations that words can not define.
That being said, these words you are reading now can never accurately describe the miracle of an open Crown chakra. But, once you do open yours, you will have an inner knowing that you are on the right path.
What is the right path? The one that makes you happy at the soul level. It is different for each person. When your Crown chakra is open and healthy, you float through life with ease.
This chakra is your crowning glory. When balanced, you are the definition of human perfection, aligned with your physical and spiritual self.
What causes Crown chakra imbalance?
Like the rest of us, you were born with a path and a purpose. In childhood, you lived with eyes wide open, imagination free, and possibilities limitless. As you became distracted with the physical world, your connection with your spiritual self faded.
Human life is a fast and hard lesson for the soul. You come to earth seeking challenges. Once you overcome the obstacles, your soul evolves.
When you are not mentally prepared for the challenges of human life, your Crown chakra becomes derailed. You lose your connection with the spirit guides and guardian angels who whisper directions and send positive signs to remind you of your path.
What happens if your Crown chakra is blocked?
If your Crown chakra is blocked, you have fallen into the lure of ego, temptation, and negativity. Instead of receiving the constant flow of Universal guidance, you have stopped listening to your Higher Self. You are ruled by ego.
The mentally and emotionally charged ego can drive you to greed, arrogance, fear, doubt, and anger. You feel like everything is a competition and you want to be better than others. You fall into a pit of pessimism and feel that no matter what you do, the world is against you.
A closed Crown chakra may leave you feeling lost like life has no purpose. You have no connection with humanity nor spirituality. This feeling can lead to depression or sinister actions.
How do you know when your Crown chakra is open?
You know when your Crown chakra is open when your life is stress-free, drama-free, and carefree. You are on the right path in your life, instead of challenges, you see yourself collecting important lessons left and right.
You enjoy material goods, but you are not attached to them. You are happy no matter what you have in your life. You can find the good in every situation.
With a balanced Crown chakra, you are secure in your abilities. You do not rely on others to make you happy. You are focused on your own life. You attract positive people into your life because of the positive energy you radiate through your aura.
When your Crown chakra flows free, you create the life you want to live. You have direct access to the abundance of the Universe. You are not limited by your ego's doubts.
What is the color of the Crown chakra?
The Crown chakra vibrates with the top color of the rainbow, purple. It combines the earthy red of the Root chakra and the transcendent blue of your upper chakras.
You can choose to work with any shade of purple gemstone at the Crown chakra. You could also choose solid white or clear stones for this chakra.
Where is the Crown chakra located?
Unlike most other chakras that spin horizontally, this one flows vertically like the Root chakra. Whereas the Root chakra receives energy through the earth, the Crown chakra receives energy from the spirit world.
The energy of the Crown chakra enters and exits from the top of the head. The top of the head serves as an antenna between the spiritual and physical worlds.
What crystals are good for the Crown chakra?
Although opening the Crown chakra can be done with your mental powers alone, crystals help the process. It provides you with a physical tool to assist you in your energy balancing quest.

Sheila's personal experiences with the Crown chakra
Having worked in the metaphysical field for most of my life, you can imagine that I have a lot of experiences with the Crown chakra. We'll save the novel for another time, and I'll relate to you my most powerful spiritual memory.
This occurred a few decades ago when my sister, Lisa, and I were taking spiritual hypnosis classes from our later father, Sunny Satin, at his institute in New Delhi, India. Our homework was to practice hypnotherapy sessions on one another. So, I grabbed a Clear Quartz sphere that I had intentionally programmed for the session, and off we went.
I remember going into a deep trance as my sister counted me down into hypnosis. I remember my mind floating up to the spiritual realms. I remember it being hard to speak because I was so far away from my physical body.
When she asked me who I had "met", I told her "Joy". Having just learned about evil spirit attachments, she told me later that she got scared and was about to run down and get help!
But then I explained to her that Joy was my Higher Self. It was very hard to explain the radiant feelings, but "joy" seemed to encompass it the best I could in human terms.
I will never forget this experience. And now I have a physical association with "Joy", thanks to the Quartz sphere. Whenever I hold a Quartz sphere or even just gaze at it, I am linked to my Higher Self. You could do the same!
Lisa's personal experiences with the Crown chakra
My favorite personal experience with Crown chakra crystals was when I hosted guided meditation groups. I remember the first time I attempted a guided meditation, I didn't prepare at all because I didn't know how! It was so satisfying and surprising to just close my eyes and watch the words flow- just channel them out effortlessly for the group. After that first meeting, the group began to grow in number over the years.
We covered almost every topic and certainly the Crown chakra spiritual themes. It was so much fun to use stones like Amethyst, Lepidolite, Selenite, and Quartz to take journeys into the astral realm. Guiding the group to meet their spirit guides, angels, and extra beings was a powerful experience for all involved. We would then discuss our findings.
Along with using all the Crown chakra crystals mentioned in this article, another incredible mineral that you shouldn't overlook are Meteorites. Space rocks like Moldavite, Tektite, Libyan Desert Glass, and Geo-Guenie give you a direct connection to the cosmos. Born from alien material, they are absolutely the best crystals to work with when you want to connect to the great beyond. I just love Meteorites and all the spiritual Crown chakra stones that bless us here on Earth.

What food is good for the Crown chakra?
Eat natural purple or white foods to activate the Crown chakra. You could choose eggplants, daikon, grapes, mushrooms, coconut, or parsnips.
You want to eat anything that makes you feel happy and light after the meal. This will balance the weight of your body with your Crown chakra's access to your cosmic self.
What note is the Crown chakra?
Every chakra vibrates at a specific frequency. The Crown chakra vibrates at 768 Hz or the musical note G. At this vibration, you can align the Throat chakra to flow open.
Use tuning forks, musical instruments, and singing bowls specific to the Crown chakra's note to balance this area.
