Each one of our bodily energy centers (chakras) relates to a particular area of our life and consequently has important life lessons for us. In this article, we’re going to explore the lessons of your highest, main energy center – your crown chakra.
If you haven’t yet seen the other articles and videos of this series, you can find them here:
The crown chakra resides just above the top of our head. It represents a spectrum of color from violet to pure white, and is all about our connection to the Divine.
I think of the crown chakra a little differently than the other chakras. The others are clearly bodily-oriented, with the masculine chakras (1, 3, 5) relating to your external world, and the feminine chakras (2, 4, 6) relating to your inner realm.
The crown chakra stands alone and acts like a portal to the non-manifest spiritual realm. Think of it as an umbilical cord to God. And as such, it has some very important lessons to teach us. Here they are.
3 Key Lessons of the Crown Chakra
1) Everything Is Energy
Matter is energy, space is energy, everything is energy. Spiritual gurus have been teaching this for millennia, and only more recently has science finally caught up with the idea through quantum physics.
If you meditate deeply enough, you can feel into the energy that is animating you. It’s a subtle vibration that reverberates through every part of the Universe. This all pervasive matrix of energy, leads us to lesson number two:
2) We Are All Connected
It’s only logical that if everything is energy, then everything in the Universe is made of the same stuff and is part of one big field. Quantum mechanics reveals how we are all truly connected.
Words are always so telling, aren’t they? The word Universe says it quite plainly, “uni” one, “verse” which comes from versus which means ‘turned’. One turn. One thing. All the same.
Maybe it’s a spiritual game we play on ourselves when we come into this physical world where we forget we are part of the living matrix of oneness. We’ve all experienced times when we’ve felt isolated or alone. And the truth is, you and I — and everyone else — are never truly separate. While we are each individual, unique slices of the Divine, we are still nevertheless part of the one conscious energy that makes up everything.
A wave is always part of the larger ocean, and yet it is still it’s own unique “self.” It’s the same for us. We are consciousness in different forms, enjoying its own ability to manifest in infinite ways.
The next time you feel isolated, meditate on a part of yourself, like your hand, and feel into the energy behind your physical body. Then feel how that energy extends beyond your body, and then go further, and feel how that energy is never ending and all enveloping; connecting you to everything.
Be playful and open. You’re simple seeking to experience a little taste of your place in the divine matrix of all life.
3) We Are All Responsible for Each Other
If everything is energy and we are all connected, it follows that we are all in this together 100%. We are literally and undeniably on the same team. When the true understanding of the crown chakra sinks in, the golden rule (“do unto others as you would have them do unto you”) makes absolute perfect sense because you and I are one in the same. Your welfare is my welfare, and mine is yours.
When everyone on the planet learns this crown lesson, there will be peace on earth and we will share the resources from a place of complete awareness of our interconnectedness and fundamental unity.
It’s one thing to be nice to your neighbor because you want to be a good person, and another thing all together to be nice to your neighbor because you know you ARE your neighbor.
The ultimate lesson of the crown chakra is to know you are unified with everything, and to move beyond the mere mental concept of it into living it from your heart on a daily basis.
In other words, be the love and peace you want to see in the world.
