What are chakras?
The chakras are energy points or centres in our bodies in and out of which energy flows. In Sanskrit chakra means wheel so you could imagine them to be spinning wheels or vortexes of energy. Just as you have memories stored in your brain, your chakras are mini data centres where everything that has happened to you is stored. Each centre houses specific experiences. How cool is that to have your own mini you library stored in areas of your body? I also believe that they hold keys to our future selves too.
Just as we have a physical body, chakras can be likened to our spiritual body. Each one acts like a window to the soul and will feed information back to you about the state of your health and life. The health and energetic vibration of each chakra is influenced by the energies that surround you and the energy you project from your thoughts and feelings. This shows up in how you feel and experience life.
Crown Chakra– Connection and the right to know and understand

The crown chakra connects you to your highest spiritual consciousness, the divine, expanded personal expression, purpose and having an open mind. The crown chakra focuses your attention on the spiritual side of life. It allows for your spirituality to become integrated into your physical life. The crown chakra gives you access to the divine and motivates you to seek a deeper connection to the divine. It is also knowing that the divine is in all of us. It is a place of intuitive knowledge and wisdom. Remember that the first chakra connects you to Mother Earth, this chakra connects you to the divine and when they are connected to each other create a universal pathway that supports mind, body, soul and spirit. This is the third of the spiritual chakras which opens the gateway to developing claircognizance.
When this chakra is balanced, you feel connected to Universal consciousness, your higher-self, can see and understand the bigger picture and that there is a purpose larger than what is going on inside yourself. You will have a deeper understanding of what your life purpose it and how that brings meaning into your life.
In terms of manifesting, your connection with the Universe will enable you to manifest magic, and bring your dreams into consciousness.
Crown chakra – Attachment
This chakra is blocked by attachment and closes down our right to know. By releasing attachments (psychological or physical), we are able to be aware of a global or collective conscious, as well as the larger purpose. You may be feeling lost and creatively stuck as if everyone else knows what they’re doing, but you don’t know what to do next.
Ask what you are attached to? Money, love, sex, things? How can you let these attachments go? Who will you be when you let them go? The goal is to completely surrender; letting go of anything that has a hold on you. It is said that to open this chakra, you need to let go of attachments and outdated beliefs so that you can feel a greater sense of inner peace.
I am connected to my purpose
