What Does the Seventh Chakra Represent?
It represents being connected to the universal energies, mystical forces, and unity consciousness. When you were born you had a soft spot on the top of your head. Since you were just birthed into a whole new world, you were still connected to the world that you had just come from – the spirit world.
As you grew older the soft spot closed up. This doesn’t mean you aren’t connected anymore. You’ll always be connected to the universal energies that are in and all around us. We are all connected! Sometimes we lose sight of that.
Having a healthy crown chakra lets you know how loved and supported you are. Your crown chakra is your connection to spirit. When you meditate your crown chakra opens up and connects you to divine energies. When you are connected to this divine energy you have an expanded view of life and you don’t let life situations get you down as easily. You don’t feel alone and you feel fully supported by life.
The crown chakra is how you connect to angelic, divine forces and allow them into your life. When your crown chakra is open and healthy you realize how connected we all are. You feel the universal energy of life and have a greater awareness, one that is beyond the limits of this world.
You understand that there is more to life than just the mundane world.
Having an open crown chakra can make the mundane world magical because you are bringing spirit into daily life. Honoring spirit in your life, no matter how you do it, or what your spiritual beliefs are, makes life much more meaningful and fulfilling.
Your crown chakra helps you to understand that you are more than just a physical being.

Lesson of the Seventh Chakra
The crown chakra teaches you how to live in the present moment.
Seventh Chakra Healing Exercise
This week see how present you can be with yourself and others. When you are having conversations make a conscious effort to connect to the person’s eyes. See if you can be present with them and feel their essence, the spirit inside them.
As you converse with them let your crown chakra open so that you are speaking to them from your higher self. Let that guide the conversation. Don’t talk just to talk.
If in the conversation silence comes, don’t run from it by filling the space with another question or story. Let the silence be there and see what arises from it. See if you can give enough spaciousness between the two of you so that spirit can get in. Play with this and see what happens. You don’t always have to talk to connect.
BE present. Take a moment and simply come to stillness. You can close your eyes or keep them open.
Look within or look around you. Notice what’s happening in the present moment. Listen, feel, taste, smell, hear. Just BE with it. And enjoy the power of now.
