Chakra is a sanskrit term for “wheel” that refers to swirling energy centers throughout the body that receive, express and distribute life-force energy. The seven main chakras are located along the spine at major branches of the human nervous system. They connect the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies. Each chakra functions at optimum level when open, aligned and in balance.
Chakras are archetypal components of consciousness and come from various ancient traditions. While the chakras have been incorporated in many spiritual practices, their existence is based not upon religion, but upon awareness of energy. Although Chakras are most known for their origin in Hinduism, the yoga philosophy and Kundalini, there are many traditions that speak of and work with energy centers: the Chinese, the Hopi, the Tibetans and even the Celts have a spiral system. The chakras are portals that spin in and out. They are wheels of energy that connect body and spirit. The Seven Master Chakras signify all life stages and are represented by the seven colors of the rainbow and the Kabbalisitc Tree of Life; a path from Earth to Heaven, from matter to supreme consciousness.
As you move up through the chakras, the healing moves higher. Balancing lower chakras helps align the higher ones as Kundalini energy rises up through the chakras and becomes more ethereal and dynamic.
Here sacred energy is infinite and wisdom is pure and eternal, a state of non-duality where we realize we are one with the cosmos and everything in the cosmos is one with us.
Note: In Sanskrit, the crown chakra is called Sahasrara, which means "thousand petaled" and is represented by a lotus with many layers of petals.
REPRESENTS: The gateway to universal consciousness, connection to higher self, spirit, god/ess, otherworldly bliss, liberation from earthly self and soul, unconditional faith and devotion, transcending limitations, source of enlightenment, manifestation of the divine, physical death and transcendence
GOAL: To have a strong spiritual connection and relationship to higher self, to have the ability to be still, listen and move beyond duality
MANTRA: “I am at peace. I honor the divine within. I am present in this moment. I am open to divine wisdom.”
BALANCED CROWN CHAKRA: To live in awareness with a connection to the cosmos, to have a deep personal relationship with the divine, to have the ability to be still and listen, feel unconditional love, trust life and death with a knowing that there is more than our earthly life
EMOTIONAL IMBALANCES: Being ruled by the unconscious, fear of life and death, constant negativity, depression, alienation, confusion, boredom, feeling disconnected, recurring crisis, psychosis
PHYSICAL IMBALANCES: Cerebral cortex, headaches, chronic fatigue migraines, neurological disorders, scalp, skeletal structure, brain
If the crown chakra is closed we cannot transcend or finish our journey; we cannot fully become conscious.
HEALING REMEDIES: Practice a strong bond with the divine through meditation, prayer and silence, finding methods to awaken to the reality of our spiritual nature, remove ourselves from constant demands of the outside world, practice mindfulness, being present, lotus and tree yoga pose, exposure to sunlight, participating in spiritual community and gathering, practice of ritual and ceremony, burning of incense and sending your prayers to the heavens

Once you have chosen the appropriate oil or two, begin by applying it on the specific chakra while visualizing the shift you desire. Feel blockages melt away and balance instilling. Then apply the oil on other parts of the body as desired. Breathe, trust and allow balance to return.
