Crown Chakra 101

Crown Chakra: Sahasrara

The seventh chakra, known as the crown chakra, Sahasrara, or the Thousand Petal Lotus is the energy center that allows you to connect to your higher self and universal consciousness. It connects you to the eternal part of yourself that goes beyond the ego.  

It exists in everything and everywhere, and it is what connects us to every single sentient beings in the universe.

This is the one energy center within the 7 chakra system that is outside of your physical body on the top of your head. It is beyond a chakra and is where universal energy and higher consciousness enters into your energetic system.

How to Know if the Crown Chakra is Out of Balance

When the crown chakra is balanced, the illusion of separation falls away. You recognize the unity and oneness in your connection with all things and being in the universe. 

You will feel a deep connection with a higher power, Divine Source… and centered in a healthy sense of Spirituality and connection with the Infinite. 

This chakra is the seat, the source of universal energy. It is infinite and does not have an end. This is why you can never exist and be present in the physical world when your consciousness energy is unbalanced.

When this chakra is open and clear, you know that you are never alone. 

Underactive Crown Chakra

An underactive crown chakra leads people to be ego-driven. Seeing the body as all there is to life and the resulting consequences for that is a survival mentality. Someone with an underactive Crown Chakra may feel disconnected from the Divine or doubt that there is any higher power at all.

A blocked or underactive crown may cause feeling disconnected from spirit and even be angry at God or feeling abandoned. 

When this chakra is out of balance, you may experience mental fog, fatigue, boredom, materialism, elitism, and entitlement. You will have symptoms of ego-driven thoughts and behavior.  

Overactive Crown Chakra

If you have an overactive chakra, you’re likely to feel disconnected from your body. If your purpose is to work alongside others and spiritual things become overly dominant in your life or an obsession even, this can interfere with that mission, and you may need to bring some balance into this chakra. 

Being spacey, ungrounded, and lacking purpose and focus are additional symptoms of an overactive crown.
