Understanding The Crown Chakra:
Amongst the seven chakras present inside our body, the Crown chakra or the Sahasrara Chakra is the 7th chakra that is known to be the thousand-petalled lotus center present above the crown of the head. This current section of the article will put some limelight on the Crown chakra
General Know-About Crown Chakra Or The 7th Chakra:
Crown chakra, also known as the thousand petalled lotus center or the Sahasrara chakra is the entry point in a person for higher consciousness and for higher self to incarnate into the body. This chakra epitomizes the total energy state of a human body. Usually this seventh chakra or the Crown chakra remains in a blocked state in humans forever. The one who is able to unblock his crown chakra seems to be magically bright and he looks absolutely changed forever in terms of love, peace and enlightment.
Location Of Crown Chakra Or The 7th Chakra:
The Crown Chakra or the Sahasrara chakra is physically described as Pituitary. This chakra is located above the crown of the head or just behind the top of the skull.
Importance Of Crown Chakra Or The 7th Chakra:
Let us list some of the points which make the Crown chakra an important chakra of human body.
- The crown chakra is the entry for higher consciousness and enlightment in a person which helps in attaining spirituality, peace and bliss in him.
- The crown chakra is also the proper exit point for the soul whilst at death which allows the subtle bodies leave via the crown and begin to grow into higher dimensions.
- Crown chakra is also connected to Pineal gland and various other areas on the body. So, activating the crown chakra helps in reactivating the pineal gland and other connected areas and thus assists the bodily systems to run smoother and keep us free from sickness.
Crown Chakra And Its Association With Pineal Gland:
This Crown chakra is intimately connected with the pineal gland which releases a huge amount of growth hormone and various other chemicals. Because of the closure of the Crown Chakra after the work of Chitta and ego structures complete their work as we grow by our age, the pineal gland shrinks to a tiny shrivelled up pea. Activating the crown chakra will aid us in reactivating the pineal gland and thus will help in rejuvenating the entire body. The forces like Kundalini and sexual energy growing from the Base and the Sex Chakras will help the crown chakra to open and thus help in the activation of the pineal gland.
Various Other Areas Which Are Associated With The Crown Chakra Or The 7th Chakra:
Apart from the pineal gland, various other areas are associated with the Crown chakra. Specifically the Cerebral cortex, top center of the head, pituitary gland, crown of the head, midline above the ears, nervous system, top of the head, brain, the cranial nerves and the cranial plexuses and the right eye are linked to the Crown Chakra.
What Is Blocked Crown Chakra Or Blocked 7th Chakra?
Now what actually does the Blocked Crown Chakra mean? Well! Do you know someone who is not open to other people's opinion or who has an extremely closed mind? If yes, then probably there is a fair chance that the Crown chakra in the person is blocked.
In case of the blocked crown chakra, one is not ready to accept the truth or the realty and prefers self to be righteous. In case of blocked crown chakra, we are not able to meet with our own spirit and keep self away from our real purpose in the Earth. There are ways to open or unblock the blocked crown chakra which we will be discussing in the later part of the section.
It is also believed that in case there is a complete blocked crown chakra in a body( usually doesn't happen on Earth), during the time of death the soul leaves out through other openings in the body like eyes, ears, mouth or the anus. In such case the soul end up in some negative astral realms and keeps wandering until the astral body begins to shatter and the spirit is able to release.
What Happens When The Crown Chakra Is Unblocked?
Unblocking of the seventh chakra or the Crown chakra makes one feel like being born anew. Anyone who has unblocked the Crown chakra has a magnified sense of love in self which reflects out. Men and women who have their Crown chakra unblocked, are known to be self realized people and are transcendently bright radiating love in a way that everyone is drawn towards them.
