We all go through stressful times in our lives. What’s also true is that we experience them differently.
Some overcome a tragic event easier than others can forget a bad hair day.
It’s an extreme example but not far from the truth.
We often forget about ourselves and what we are capable of achieving at a spiritual level. We are only humans. Even as Reiki practitioners, it’s difficult not to get dragged into the everyday chaos.
Petty worries affect us. What’s normal to encounter in the quotidian can have a harmful result if we allow it to grow.
It’s something I experienced a few times in my life, and I’m sure many of you have. The fact that I practice Reiki helped me become aware of the differences. It made me ask questions and guided me toward answers.
How far should I let the sorrow go? (I’m fortunate enough to notice it. Many are not.)
Should I simply ignore the knowledge I have and not work with myself?
It’s easy in those moments to let yourself fall. But, unfortunately, this decision doesn’t lead to any good outcome. That’s the moment when I choose to shift my awareness towards the crown chakra, the energy center of pure consciousness.
The Crown Chakra
The crown chakra, or Sahasrara, is located on top of your head. It’s where the universal life force energy enters your body after the Reiki attunement.
The crown chakra allows you to (re)connect to your higher self.
Because Sahasrara is the central conductor of divine energy, you can receive divine intuition and inspiration and channel information through it.
At a physical level, the crown chakra governs the pineal gland and the ability to focus on specific tasks. At this level, a healthy crown chakra gives birth to feelings of comfort and harmony.
It’s also responsible for your ability to manifest patience. Some spiritual practitioners consider Sahasrara the fundamental chakra.
They see it as the coordinator of the other 6. While this is not a wrong belief, it’s essential to note that all 7 are extremely important.
They all have particularities and together act as a whole. It’s a single energetic structure that keeps your body nourished and healthy.
From time to time, take a moment and focus on the crown chakra. If you find yourself overwhelmed with certain events, this is a good and easy way to make the first step towards healing.
Sometimes a complex set of procedures puts us off.
Sometimes, we just need a frictionless push.
Focusing on your crown chakra is a wonderful way to do just that.
Stimulating The Crown Chakra
- Schedule 10 minutes with yourself;
- Close your eyes and breathe slowly;
- Empty your mind. You can use the alpha state for this if it feels more practical;
- Shift your focus to the crown of your head. That’s where you’ll meet your crown chakra;
- If you have access, use Reiki symbols to activate it;
- Visualize a beam of bright white light descending through your crown chakra;
- Relax and try to perceive the information you are receiving;
Disconnect from everyday life and connect with the divine. For even better results and with a little effort, keep this awareness alive throughout the day. Accept that you are stronger than the events around you and that you’re always protected by divine energy.
