Essential Oils for Balancing Chakras; 7th Chakra or the Crown Chakra

Essential Oils for Balancing Chakras; 7th Chakra or the Crown Chakra

Lots of more great articles there too!!! 

The Crown Chakra; 7th Chakra (Sahaswara or Sahasrara) - Sahasrara means "Thousand petaled" and is associated with the pineal gland. The crown chakra is at the crown of the head and signifies our connection or alignment to GOD/the Source/Allah or the Universal Energy in all of its manifestations. It balances both the inner and outer self, and is the connection for our higher-self. It is the channel through which we receive divine guidance, purpose and wisdom, and our connection to others and the world outside of ourselves. With the crown chakra we greet the divine in everyone. The crown chakra is also associated with spiritual attainment, silent contemplation, and eternal truth. When the crown chakra is open, we can see ourselves in others without prejudice or judgement. Through the open crown chakra we are brought knowledge and wisdom, and a spiritual peace. Also, with an open crown chakra we are better at manifesting our deepest true desires. The physical effects a blocked or stagnant crown chakra can include issues with the nervous system, skeletal system, pineal gland, and all nerve pathways and electrical synapses.
If this chakra is closed, we are most likely very rigid in our thoughts and perceptions, acting stubbornly and ignoring the help of others. We are probably unaware or disrespectful of our own spirituality as well as that of others. With a blocked or stagnant crown chakra most likely we have very low energy, are depressed, lonely, and feel isolated from society- with an anxious and worried countenance. The color associated to the crown chakra is violet or purple, and the secondary color is clear or white.
"Life lessons to be learned through the Crown Chakra are intuitive knowing, integration of the whole Self, spirituality, living in the now, discovery of the Divine, the ability to see the big picture in the stream of Life, devotion, inspiration, values, ethics, trust, selflessness, humanitarianism. The information stored in the Seventh Chakra includes your connection to the Divine, your life's purpose, your connection to past lives, and immortality. An imbalance in the Crown Chakra may be felt as lack of purpose, loss of meaning or identity, mental illness, and senility ."
Angelic aid in balancing the Crown Chakra; Archangels Zadkiel and Christiel: The Archangels that can aid us in balancing the Crown Chakra are Christiel who will help you keep this channel open so that you are fully connected to God and the Universal Life-Force. Also Archangel Zadkiel, along with The Archangel of Freedom and Transmutation of the Violet Ray. According to the book " Angels of Love and Light" by Linn Fisher,
"Archangel Zadkiel (angel of the violet seventh ray) represents transmutation and purification through invocation-the act of calling upon the presence of God for intercession. The archangels of the violet ray intensify the powers of mercy, compassion, forgiveness and freedom. Zadkiel is the angel of benevolence, mercy and memory, according to Davidson's, A Dictionary of Angels . Some writers say it was Zadkiel who held back Abraham's arm when the patriarch was about to sacrifice his son Isaac. Ronner's, Know Your Angels, has Zadkiel's symbol as the sacrificial knife, apparently because of his interlude with Abraham. Zadkiel and Amethyst's ray, which manifests as the violet flame, has an important role in alchemy, the chemistry of the Middle Ages. Through fire, alchemists of the 16th century learned it was possible to transform base metals into gold. This lesson can be applied on many levels. The science of transmutation and change, in theological terms, is the process of transforming lower human consciousness to a higher spiritual vibration. Isaac Newton discovered that a ray of sunlight passing through a prism will separate into seven colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. The color violet has the shortest wavelength but the highest frequency of visible light in the color spectrum. It is the transitional vibration leading to the next octave of color and light. When we talk about transforming ourselves spiritually, we must think of the power of the violet flame. The violet flame is like the spiritual wine of forgiveness, for it represents the quality of mercy in the world. Through the power of forgiveness, fear and anger are transformed back into love as if nothing discordant ever happened. The violet flame is also called the "violet transmuting flame of forgiveness." By visualizing the violet flame, the action of forgiveness and the Holy Spirit, we can use this divine transforming chemistry to change our world. Read more from Linn Fisher here or find her book here " Angels of Love and Light".

Gemstones & Flower Essences that stimulate, cleanse & energize the Crown Chakra :The special crystal jewel, the amethyst, is thought to be the symbolic condensation of the violet ray. It is the birthstone for the astrological sign of Aquarius, the sign representing freedom and the coming of the "new clear age of consciousness" on this planet. Also gemstones like diamonds, clear quartz, moldavite, opal, pearls and moonstone, as well as peacock ore are perfect for bringing the crown charka into alignment and balance. Amethyst is also known as the stone of meditation which is believed to protect against psychic attacks, serenity, composure, as well as enhance cooperation between, physical, mental and emotional bodies. Blue Lace Agate also helps to reach high spiritual places, and is associated with flight, air, movement, and grace. Ametrine can be used to help balance the crown chakra with a combination of amethyst and citrine it helps disperse negativity from the aura, fills voids with pure light energy, releases blocks and stagnation in physical, mental, emotional and auric bodies, and helps to release negative emotional programming, also aids astral travel. Click here to see more gemstones . The flower essences used to balance the Seventh Chakra are lotus, angelica, and star tulip.

Sounds and Notes for Balancing the Crown Chakra:
The note that helps balance the chakra is "B", and the sound intonation is "eee" as in see or bee vowel sound. Chakra balancing can be achieved by using many different methods, all equally effective. It really is a matter of choice which you prefer. Methods such as meditation, energy work, light work, or Reiki are also helpful when used in conjunction with essential oils, crystals, gemstones, and sound healing techniques such as tuning forks, toning, and humming which may be incorporated into your chakra healing sessions.
