The Chakra Series-The Crown Chakra

What is the current status of your crown chakra?….
When we begin to work with our crown chakra, it is important to know its current status. How does your crown chakra spin?
Too Open (spins too fast)- Psychotic or manic depressive, confused sexual expression, frustrated, sense of unrealized power.
Blocked (spins sluggishly or not at all)- constantly exhausted, can’t make decisions, no sense of “belonging”
Balanced (spins at correct vibrational speed)- magnetic personality, achieves “miracles” in life, transcendent, at peace with self.
How Do you connect to the Divine?- About Archetypes….
There are positive and negative archetypes associated with the crown chakra. The negative being the “Egocentric” and the positive being the “Guru”.
