Scroll down to the bullet points for symptoms of an underactive or overactive crown chakra.

So What is the Crown Chakra?

The Crown Chakra is the seventh chakra and is located at the top of the chakra ladder. In a human body, this translates to the top (or crown) of the head. It governs your spiritual progress and is the center for trust, devotion, inspiration, happiness, and positivity.

The gift of this chakra is a deeper connection with ourselves and deeper connection with a force of life that is greater than ourselves. It guides us to the selfless realization that everything is connected at a fundamental level.

There is no intellectual knowing at the level of seventh chakra, but there is serenity, joy, and deep peace about life. You have a sense of knowing that there is a deeper meaning of life and that there is an order that underlies all of existence.

Why do I care?

When we realize that everything is interconnected and that we are part of the larger scheme of life, we begin to live with gratitude, faith and trust, rather than filled with fear and anxiety. For this reason, it can be quite useful to have tools to open the crown chakra. If you have a desire to learn more about spirituality, destiny, meditation, energy work, or other subjects along those lines, opening your Crown Chakra will enhance your experience and open you up to more possibilities than previously thought possible. It broadens your way of thinking and can really shift how you view the world and your place in it.
