Chakra series (7) : The Crown Chakra

It is only when we silent the blaring sounds of our daily existence that we can finally hear the whispers of truth that life reveals to us, as it stands knocking on the doorsteps of our hearts.  ~K.T. Jong

You know, I was told by someone I know (don’t want to name names here) that my crown chakra is so huge, I look like……..Megamind :/
Yea…..exactly my expression too

I mean, there really is nothing wrong with having the Crown chakra opened as it is the chakra for knowledge and also the portal or gateway to our Higher Consciousness….the wisdom and knowledge that we accumulate during our life times (well, that is what the Crown chakra means to me). The thing is though just having the Crown chakra opened without the balance of learning to use our hearts makes it tricky.

I’m trying to learn to accept that my crown chakra has opened up a little too much and I’m learning that it is quite alright to “get stuff” that most people don’t seem to get and; that it’s okay to think and contemplate about stuff (okay, honestly though I need a lot of work in accepting that, because for some reason I find thinking too much interfering with my meditation and tarot card reading…so I’m trying to tell myself it is okay to think but to just balance it out with feeling it too)

I’ve also been told and read that the Crown chakra is the gateway / portal to connect with our guides and other light beings….except that when we do want to try to connect it has to also come from the heart. It’s as if, for it to work you need both an activated crown and heart chakra…acting like a tunnel sort.

If you’re the type that loves to read up on stuff, get weird but cool ideas in your dreams or when you are doing something, and it just pop into your mind’s eye…yea…that’s your crown chakra working.

I guess it makes sense that the popular image for the Eureka moment is drawn with said light bulb above a person’s head!  The major arcana cards from tarot decks that may or can be related to the Crown Chakra are:

The Chariot

The Alchemist : aka Temperance or Patience

The World

 As with all the other Chakra Series tarot card illustrations these were also taken from Fiona Beck’s blog. She has given credit to some of the illustrations and linked the artist in the posts. The names of the cards will link you to the relevant card posts in her blog as well. Thanks! 🙂

  1. enough here to occupy my thoughts for quite a time , Shree, … There’s so much unexplained in this World, that it begs the question ‘will we ever know?’ the ties and links we all share in common… Mind you, still getting over picturing you as Megamind…. (Does the colour blue suit you ? 🙂 )
    Take care … xPenx


    1. Heh! Actually blue is one of my favourite colours…d’oh! LOL!

      I don’t think we will ever know everything as long as we can’t still our minds….from what I have read when the mind is still, that is when we become aware…of everything. I feel if we do this with our mind…we might all go crazy! It’s through the heart… 🙂


    1. Thanks Tom! It was called “Divine light” …the fancy thingie I used..sigh.
      Great to hear that your crown is opening…let us all know of all the cool ideas and information you get because for some reason I think you will get some really cool messages! 😀


  2. Thank you for a very in depth post on the crown chakra! Your insight is great – LOVE Megamind – fun comparison! I really like that the Crown chakra is the gateway to connect with our guides. I agree there is also a connection to the heart chakra with them too.


    1. Hello Richard,
