how to open your crown chakra

The crown chakra is your 7th chakra and is located just above your head (about an inch). It is associated with the color white, but can also be associated with the rainbow spectrum (as white is made up of all the other color wavelengths).

The crown chakra is your connection to the universal or collective consciousness and when it is open and working correctly, it functions as a direct line to information downloads, particularly our psychic senses.

When it is blocked, you may feel as if your higher consciousness is blocked, you may experience endocrine imbalances (imbalances in your hormones), and you may also experience low mood or trouble feeling energetically connected. You may also feel pessimistic or cynical, or spending too much time in your own head and obsessing over the past.

When it is open, you are more easily able to perceive universal source, information, enlightenment, higher self, higher levels of consciousness, set aside ego, and be present in each moment. You can also experience spiritual growth more effectively.

Here are some tips for promoting an open and balanced crown chakra:

  1. Reduce your material possessions. You can do this by cleaning out and getting rid of excess stuff around your home, closet, and storage that you do not need or use. Donate things to charities for those who need goods. Keep your space and life tidy and uncluttered. Detach from the sense of needing to have material possessions as status or symbols.
  2. Visualize connecting to celestial energy through your crown chakra. Picture it glowing white or violet and radiating branches, rays, or other extension upwards. Visualize it connecting with the universal energy and sending/receiving love and peace. The more you work on this visualization, the stronger this connection will be.
  3. Essential oils like frankincense and sandalwood can be applied to the top of the head to stimulate the crown chakra before or during meditation or visualization practices.
  4. Crystals like clear quartz, amethyst, kyanite, or moonstone can be used to meditate with. A tip I learned from someone working in energy healing is to place a crystal on top of your head (where your crown chakra is) and to hold a pendulum over the the crystal and chakra. The pendulum will begin to cleanse the blockage from the chakra. You may need to repeat this several times to fully clear a stagnant or blocked chakra. This also works for other blocked chakras, by the way.

Once you begin to feel the crown chakra is open or less blocked, regular meditation and visualization can keep it balanced. Cleansing your chakras on a regular basis is usually a good practice, especially if you are sensitive to energies, do energy work of any kind, or engage in regular spiritual practice.

magickal properties of jade

Jade comes in a fairly broad variety of colors. It is most well-known for its green hues, but it can also be virtually every other color of the spectrum.

Another crystal, nephrite, has similar green hues, similar hardness, but is a different type of mineral. It typically can only be found in white, olive greens, browns, and black.

Jade can be found in many ancient religions and cultures across the globe. It was especially prized for making tools and weapons, because of how hard it is, which makes it resistant to chipping or wear.

Properties

Magickal properties attributed to (green) jade include:

  • dreaming and psychic dreams
  • accessing the spiritual world, especially during dreams
  • wealth and prosperity
  • longevity (living a long, healthy life)
  • courage
  • good luck
  • used to treat and cure kidney ailments
  • calm and soothing
  • soothes frazzled nerves
  • promotes tranquility

Other Jade Colors

In addition to the properties listed above, other colors of jade have further, more specific magickal or metaphysical qualities:

  • red jade is an action stone and promotes bravery
  • orange jade is stimulating, but less so than red, and brings joy and celebration
  • yellow jade is cheer and joy
  • blue jade has many of the same qualities as green jade as far as promoting calm and psychic dreams
  • purple jade helps to keep your aura clean and clear
  • black jade is protective

Other properties

Jade is a rational crystal. It helps us make informed decisions and promotes clarity of thought, as well as reasoning through a problem, rather than rash decision-making.

It is also said to be a very strong cleansing crystal for the body, promoting improved detoxification and clearance of waste and free radicals, hence its connection to the kidneys, where the majority of toxic byproducts are excreted.

Jade is often used in crystal facial rollers for its powers of youthfulness and health.

Because of its connection to the spiritual world during dreams, it is considered a crystal for spiritual growth and self-realization.

Being green, obviously, it has really powerful connections to the heart chakra, and can aid in healing blockages of that chakra, which often leave us overly critical of others and wanting to control other people around us.

It can also be used as a protective crystal from negative energy and harmful entities during magickal practices.

7 crystals for connecting with your higher self

you can think of your higher self as the self that exists outside of just your conscious thought. its your spirit and its connection to the greater spiritual energetic consciousness that connects all things in the universe.

your higher self is that part of your spirit that has the ability to tap into the divine consciousness, psychic abilities, and higher magicks.

many people also associate this with your crown chakra, but also to the other chakras ‘above the head’ referred to as our soul star, spirit, universal, galactic, and divine/source chakras.

these chakras, starting with the soul star, are part of us, yet also located ‘outside’ of our physical body, if you can picture that. each one of them provides a higher level of spiritual connectedness and spiritual energy force to which we can tap into.

you may already be accessing these if you are doing a lot of work communicating with spirits and spirit guides, or psychically accessing the spirit.

before attempting to access these higher chakras, its important that your lower chakras are cleared of imbalance, psychic debris, unresolved feelings of anger, hurt, trauma (physical and emotional), and limiting self-thoughts and behaviors.

you cannot open and access higher chakras with lower chakras that are blocked or imbalanced, so it is important to work on those first, before building and raising your spiritual energy and vibrations to work with the higher chakras.

but lets say you feel like you’re there and ready for next steps. here are some crystals that are especially powerful for working with the higher chakras of your spiritual self:

blue apatite

blue apatite is said to have deep cleansing properties of the aura and the psychic body. its especially useful for developing or tapping into the psychic and paranormal realms.

amethyst

this is a really great all around crystal for opening the crown chakra, which you can kind of think of as the gateway to the higher chakras.

kyanite

this is a really high vibe crystal that works to activate and align all chakras starting with the third eye and up. typically white kyanite is the best option, but other colors such as indigo may also be very powerful for higher chakras.

clear quartz

you are probably saturated with reason why clear quartz is awesome, so here’s another one. clear quartz vibes really well with the soul star chakra, just about your crown chakra, as well as all of your other lower as well as higher ones.

selenite

another crystal with white light or high vibes which works excellent to activate and open the higher self chakras, selenite is also powerful with the crown chakra.

white topaz

this crystal is excellent at clearing energetic pathways throughout the body, to prepare for opening higher chakras.

labradorite

labradorite crystals work well with the third eye and crown chakras, and facilitate a connection between our physical and spiritual selves, but also our spiritual selves and the astral plane.

so, from all of the above, you’ve got quite a few options if you’re ready to take that next step into spiritual ascension. its important to know that some of these higher chakras can open gateways into the spiritual realm that may allow in entities you don’t want, so please always seek professional guidance when attempting to communicate with those higher levels of spirit and consciousness.
