Attachments - the Shadow Side of the Crown Chakra
CLEARING THE SHADOWS
Our Shadow Self are the parts of ourselves that are in ‘darkness’. These parts are the fear, emotions and powerlessness we have trapped within us. These are the parts of us that feel separated from worthiness, separated from life and separated from love, wholeness, security and well-being. We all have them and we don’t have to be stuck with them. Our shadows are striving to create our awakening to ourselves. The shadows are where defenses and hiding places are, that seek to stay in the unconscious.
Your Crown Chakra deals with pure cosmic energy and is blocked by Attachments which closes down your "right to know". Letting go of your attachments allows you to OPEN and connect with your higher self and the universal energy. Learning to live free from expectations.
When your Crown Chakra is open, intuitive rushes of creative wisdom channel through you, lighting up your every cell. You can receive messages from the Divine, because you have the potential to birth it on this planet. Find what brings you to these channeling states and bring yourself there as much as possible whether it's through meditation, walking in nature, singing, or writing, the absence of the mind allows the genius of the Divine.
When your Crown Chakra is blocked, you have a feeling of being lost and creatively stuck, as if everyone else knows what they're doing, but you can't choose the next step. You must realize that you are always tapped into universal energy - it is your free will mind and ego that often overrides this innate wisdom and makes you lose sight of your own. The universe is always sending you messages, in many different ways. Become mindful of all that you do and let go of unnecessary possessions, beliefs, and relationships.
Consider what attaches you to this world and realize letting go does not mean they truly disappear. Letting go of attachments can mean:
· Giving love without expecting anything back
· Letting go of the attachment of what you are afraid to loose
· Letting go of the attachment that your physical reality is all there is
· Letting go of the attachment of the fear of dying or no longer existing
· Letting go of the attachment to the fear of being alone
The Gift of I AM
The gift of this chakra is experiencing unity and the selfless realization that everything is connected on a fundamental level. The energy of this chakra allows us to experience mystical oneness with everyone and everything.
There is an energy at this level of serenity, joy, and deep peace. You have a sense of knowing that there is a deeper meaning of life and that there is an order that underlies all of existence. The “way of the crown chakra” is the way of going beyond the limits of your own ego.
When we realize that everything is interconnected and that we are part of the larger scheme of life, we can live with gratitude, faith, and trust. We are guided by spirit and we feel divinity from within and from without.
To open your Crown chakra, focus energy on the top of your head. The goal is to completely surrender; a letting go of the hold that the physical world has on you. Imagine an infinite crown of pure white light energy showering up into the cosmos like a mighty fountainhead connecting you to all things. Feel the powerful energy pool up from your roots, passing through the sacred waters of the sacral, basking in the fire of the solar plexus, breathing in the vital breath of the heart, absorbing the voice and truth of the throat, pouring through the insight of the brow, and spilling up and out the crown of your head into a thousand-petaled lotus. Feel the boundaries of your mind body and soul dissolve into all things. Let go of earthly attachments. Let go. You are love itself. Breathe. I AM.
SUPPORTING YOUR LIGHT
Bringing light to the attachment shadows within you is a vital part of your spiritual path because it honors the need to explore and embrace all parts of you. Your 'Right to Know', means claiming and maintaining your connection to your Higher Self.
The secret of getting what you want in life is to get in the vibrational frequency of what you want – to go to the FEELING and BEING place of what you want.
By working with your Crown Chakra, you can find a sense of peace to build your life upon. Learning to feel at home in higher levels of consciousness. Free yourself from attachments, open to new possibilities, and get "unstuck" by awakening the heart of your Crown Chakra.
