We have finally made it all the way up the Chakra line to our seventh and final Chakra. The Crown Chakra. This is the ‘holy grail’ of the Chakras. It represents everything that is pure. It is about being so connected with our spirituality, our mind and our body. It’s where we want to get to.
REPRESENTS: Interconnection and purification
LOCATION: Crown of the Head
WHAT DOES IT FOCUS ON?
- Inner and outer beauty
- Connection to spirituality
- Pure bliss
- More about emotions around food rather than what we eat.
EATING FOR GREATER CONNECTION WITH YOUR CROWN CHAKRA
- Eat pure foods to cleanse the body
- Avoid toxins and preservatives
- Eat fibre to gently detoxify the body daily
- Take a moment before eating to express gratitude to the food and everyone and thing involved in providing nourishment to the body.
FOODS TO FOCUS ON FOR INTERCONNECTIONS AND PURIFICATION
As I mentioned earlier, this is less about the food we eat and more about the state of mind we are in when we eat. With the Crown Chakra, focus less on the physical items of food that pass your lips and more on the substances you feed your body and mind with to promote interconnection and purification.
Sunlight and oxygen are all required to sustain life. We get to this sort of level when we talk abut the Crown Chakra. And ‘feed’ your Crown Chakra with loving thoughts. Love is also required to sustain a truly pure and interconnected life.
I really hope you have enjoyed this series of blog posts focusing on ways to maximise the energy and flow through and around all of the Chakras. It’s a fascinating subject, one that is steeped in Hindu beliefs for thousands of years.
For me, it’s about listening to my body, nourishing it with what it needs when it needs it, but more importantly making sure that mind, body and spirit are working in tandem together.
