The crown chakra is located at the crown of the head. This is the energy center of knowing, intellect, thinking, learning, and teaching. The crown charka is the connection to cosmic consciousness, or the Divine.
People who had authoritarian parents and/or experienced religious abuse have blocked crown chakras. Their hearts, sacral and solar plexus chakras may be blocked as well if they find themselves shutting down rather than expressing their thoughts and emotions about what they truly believe. Further, a blocked root chakra may be a factor because this is the space of safety and family.
Escapism and is a sign of a blocked crown chakra. Over-thinking is another sign of a crown chakra imbalance. Activities like binge watching television shows, spending long hours on social media, or other distractions go along with this.
- Learn something new, like a language or skill.
- Teach what you are passionate about.
- Find a community that is reflective of your interests.
- Break a rule (that does not harm yourself or others).
Journal about how you felt doing the activities. How long did it take you to unplug from the distraction and act? At any point did you stop and wonder if you were doing the activity correctly? Whose voice was criticizing you? How did you correct this behavior, if at all?
Think about the moment you felt that your parent was wrong about something and they did not listen to your input. Do you two still disagree? Do you find yourself acting out in any way as an adult? How does this feel in your body?
