Working with The Color Violet and The Crown Chakra
“Spiritual liberation is not at all a mere affair of the intellect, but rather the realization of the inmost Self, the inward vision of the soul, and the transcendence of the personality.” —Yogi Ramsuratkumar
Violet is the color of the amethyst, lavender, violets, lilac, of loyalty, of spirituality, of trust and knowing White, silver and gold are often attributed to being colours of the crown chakra. White and gold are the colours I use when I am doing a chakra opening meditation, where I draw the gold in through the crown and the white, violet and purple I use for protection around my whole body and anything else too. I often use white energy as a circle of light around my house. I remember once when we were living in Sydney, a relative coming to visit and he was quite horrified that we had the back gate open and that he could walk in. I told him that was okay I had a circle of light around my property. It seems to work for me.
The Crown Chakra is a door of universal energy and conscience. Through it you can reach a higher state of awareness. It has been said that when the crown chakra is open you connect with the Divine source of universal life.
I liked these words from Rainbow Eyes: Chakramid Reflections A Tale of One Woman’s Journey to Chakra Energy awakening by Mary Jo Shaffer
7th chakra is said to have a dual nature- Physical manifestation on one hand and the absence of anything physical on the other. It is mutlidimensional and ever expanding with thought and consciousness, At this last chakra level. meditation is an indispensable tool for achieving higher consciousness, as is communion with nature. As you begin exploring your 7th chakra, know that this is not a destination, and that your journey in it will never end.
The brief color meditation includes a series of paintings I have done as well plus some digital imagery from the paintings on the Crown Chakra
Here are 7 ways I have found that help in opening my crown chakra:
Be in silence: This might be first thing in the morning before the noise of the world starts. I do get up early today, it was 4am and I painted, then drew a card, did my morning pages and meditated before Des was up and about.
Spend time in Solitude: It might be taking time out in nature. I know for me the beach is one of the places that I do feel in touch with the divine and my true self. Nicole Cody talks about this in her blog Cauldrons and Cupcakes today in her post A little Solitude is good for the Soul.
Meditation: might be a breath mediation where I focus just on my breath which brings me to stillness and leaves my sometimes monkey mind at the door.
QiGong : I have a 20 minute cd that is use that calms the mind and centres the body. Yoga is also an excellent way to help open your crown chakra.
Be and Choose Love: When we love and accept ourselves we come from our heart and we release any tension, then we are open to connect with our divine , our intuition and more.
Use an Amethyst or Quartz Crystal– carry one with you- not something I do after losing several. I do have an amethyst by my bed and on my altar along with Quartz Crystals.
What do you do on a daily basis to keep your Crown Chakra open ?
