Crystals For The Crown Chakra
The crown chakra is the place of our minds. It is our gateway to the expanded universe beyond our bodies. It controls how we think, and how we respond to the world around us. It connects us to the higher planes of existence and extends our energy beyond our body. When in balance and not blocked, we feel in balance, flexible, we see things as they are, and are not fazed by setbacks. However, if it is blocked or not in balance you can feel uncoordinated, clumsy, uninspired, and generally out of sorts with life. If you have been feeling unsure of who you are or why you even exist, your crown chakra could be out of balance. There is no need to worry though as violet colored crystals can help bring you back to your center.
At the onset of the darkness of winter, the oranges and reds of autumn give way to the deeper winter tones of violet and blue. The skies are darker with less sunshine; the earth takes on the darker hue of winterâ€™s majesty. Violet crystals have the universal life force of magic, dreams, inspiration, and destiny. A variety of therapies are necessary for treating crown chakra balance problems. In addition to violet crystal healing, spend time dreaming and working on coordination by doing such things as Yoga.
Use Violet Crystals
Like the sleepy, misty time of year that produces its rays, violet is the color ray of intuition, dreams, nobility, and luxury. As the color ray of influence that begins the cycle of life once again, violet is one of the most powerful rays in nature. It inspires awe, and invites a feeling of mystery and magic, reminiscent of the mystery and magic of lifeâ€™s rejuvenation and renewal. Violet color rays are powerful aids in interpreting our dreams, inspiring us to great deeds and accomplishments, and putting the magic back in our lives and relationships.
Vibrant hues of violet can be found in Eudialyte. Eudialyte is used to focus and amplify the Universal Life Force to bring you energy and power as you begin a new project that moves you closer to your dreams and aspirations. It will help you find your path to your goals. It will give you the energy to succeed and it will inspire your spirit. Eudialyte is a stone of understanding. It is used to connect your conscious mind to your unconscious mind to allow you to understand your true desires and needs. Use violet Eudialyte to restore the balance in your spirit energy of the crown chakra particularly when the blockage is the inability to dream or understand your dreams.
When thinking of various violet colored crystals, nothing comes to mind faster than Amethyst, a popular stone for thousands of years. The amethyst ray of vision helps us see into our souls and ourselves. The admonishment â€œknow thyselfâ€ is profound advice. Amethyst can help you see yourself as you actually are and it helps you understand how others see you. It is especially supportive of the emotional body, bringing those who are overworked, overstressed, or overwhelmed back to center. It eases the mental anxieties that lead to physical tension and headaches, and is a great crystal to calm those who tend to be hot-headed and easily angered.
Violet colored Eudialyte has fire energy and is used in the south area of a home or room. Fire elemental energy is the energy of enthusiasm, warmth, brightness, illumination and activity. It is Yang in nature.
What Authors Say About Crystals
Charoite stimulates inner vision and spiritual insight and aids in coping with enormous change at a spiritual level. To facilitate this, it synthesizes the heart and crown chakras.
Called the crystal snowball, because it resembles fuzzy mini snowballs, this is an Earth Mother stone that forms the bridge between earthly and cosmic energies. It is recommended for use with the crown chakra.
Selenite links easily with the Soul Star chakra above the crown, drawing one’s higher-self or higher awareness into the consciousness of the everyday self in a way that is almost effortless.
When our crown chakra is out of balance it can cause us to become clumsy, uncoordinated, and out of sorts with life. When in balance our crown chakra provides a sense of harmony and balance to our lives. We are sure of ourselves and confident in the way we approach things. If you believe your crown chakra is blocked or out of balance we suggest meditating with a violet colored crystal over your forehead. In particular we feel that Eudialyte and Amethyst would be most beneficial. You can also try crystals other authors have recommended such as Charoite, Okenite, and Selenite.
