Crown Chakra Stones for Spiritual Growth
The crown chakra, also known as the 7th chakra or sahasrara chakra, holds the connection between yourself and higher consciousness. Using crown chakra stones guides us on the journey to open our minds to receiving guidance from higher vibrations. The seventh chakra is located on the top of the head. Its associated with the color violet. It grows our connection to our spiritual nature and our capacity to life a spiritual life.
When the crown chakra is balanced, you feel a strong connection to the divine, knowing that there is a plan for you and you are taken care of in this life. You also feel a deep connection to everyone and everything around you, knowing that we are all connected and experiencing the same journey of life. A balanced crown chakra also allows you to use your wisdom from the higher consciousness and use it in your everyday, grounded life. The 7th chakra acts as the bridge between the Divine and human life.
An out of balance crown chakra can be experienced as over-active or under-active. You may feel such a connection to the higher realms that you are unable to ground yourself, making you come off as “far out there” to others. You may also consider yourself better than others because of this ability to connect with the Divine. If there is a blockage in the crown chakra, you will likely feel a lack of purpose in this life, failing to remember that the Divine has a plan for all of us. You may feel resentful towards the Divine for giving you challenges or obstacles, rather than acknowledging them as necessary stepping-stones to spiritual growth and development. You also will have no desire to explore the spiritual side of yourself.
Physically, the sahasrara chakra is believed to be linked to depression, exhaustion that is unrelated to a physical disorder, anxiety, and muscular diseases.

Place your crown chakra crystals in the grid formation shown in the picture above on your forehead and space surrounding your head. If you don’t have anyone around to help you place the crown chakra stones, it may be easier to first lay the stones in the formation next to you and then transfer them over to your body. Once you have finished the grid, close your eyes and breath deeply, entering a meditative state.
Once you feel you have gained a better understanding of why the energy in your crown chakra is blocked, remove the crown chakra crystals and journal about what you gained from the meditation. Repeat this exercise, ideally for 21 days for a set amount of time. They key is commitment and consistency.
