The 7th chakra is known as the crown chakra because it’s at the very top of your head. It is also known as the bliss chakra because it aligns your mind with pure consciousness and wisdom. Whenever you feel depressed, socially isolated, or emotionally challenged, there may be blockages in the crown chakra that are keeping you from attaining peace and accessing your higher consciousness. The Crown Chakra usually becomes blocked from negative experiences with organized religion and childhood trauma. These blockages severely stunt one's spiritual growth. Your spirituality and "higher self" are controlled by the higher crown chakra. As this level heals, opens and begins to function properly, you will begin to experience higher consciousness, become more self-aware and see others more clearly. You may become more enlightened spiritually and develop a deeper understanding of higher love and commitment to something greater than yourself. Activating and balancing your Crown Chakra can help you to discover your greater purpose in life. Open the crown chakra with mindful breathing to help quiet the mind and repeat positive affirmations about enlightenment and spiritual connection to set intentions that break old habits and open our minds to new thoughts and experiences. Heal the crown chakra by avoiding your ego. This will take practice, but learning how to release one’s ego is a fantastic method to heal the crown Chakra. Choose love and practice prayer. When you open your crown chakra, you connect with your highest, best self.
Amethyst is said to work to bring tranquility to your mind and your crown chakra so you can focus on healing any blockages that are holding you back from experiencing bliss. It is known as an “air” element that provides calmness and positivity, intellectual thought, clear thinking, sobriety, emotional balance, and improved concentration all in connection to the crown chakra. Amethyst is a purple colored quartz that is probably, by far, one of the most beloved healing crystals from the mineral kingdom. It even makes mention in the bible as being one of the stones in the breastplate of the high priests of Israel. Amethyst is found in volcanic rocks and igneous stone deposits. You may be surprised to learn that amethyst gets its lovely color from radiation. When the amethyst is forming in rock, tiny amounts of iron are pulled into the growing crystal. Once the crystal is formed, the radioactivity of the surrounding rock emits gamma rays. These rays cause the iron in the crystals to turn various shades of violet. And how coincidental is it that purple is the color of royalty. Actually, honestly, truly… Nothing is by coincidence.
Amethyst also works with the 3rd Eye Chakra.
Clear Quartz also works with the Crown Chakra.
