The Crown Chakra
The Crown Chakra is our connection to the whole of creation. Aspects of this wholeness are filtered, transformed and utilised by the rest of the Chakra System. When the Crown Chakra looses its balance, a shadow is cast over the whole system. There is a feeling that something is not quite right, Feelings of alienation and depression, and of a weight descending hat makes one listless, exhausted and prone to boredom, all signal a possible Crown Chakra imbalance. Physically, apart from its links with the pituitary gland which it may subtly energise, the Crown Chakra directly affects the functions of the higher brain, the cerebrum. A lack of balance between the left and right hemispheres of the brain can cause confusion and coordination difficulties both physically and mentally.
When balanced the Crown Chakra increases the ability to understand things in a wider context. This allows the individual to become more intuitive and more likely to act appropriately, and thus success in action increases with the expenditure of less effort. The mind becomes quieter and is able to focus on its tasks. This smooth flow of energy makes meditative practices more fulfilling. In these circumstances, the healing potential within the body is at its greatest, stress can be released, and tissue repair quickened dramatically.
