What is the Crown Chakra and what does it do?
The crown chakra is located at the crown of your head, where it's often equated with enlightenment. It controls how you perceive and experience spirituality, so when this crown chakra opens up for a person, they may feel more connected to their spiritual side. The crown also has an effect on our personal expression - people who are open minded or have a creative streak in them will find that they express themselves better through art than by being restrained by social norms. However, someone who doesn't have these channels free can be swayed easily from what they want to do because of outside pressure from society (or any other source) telling them otherwise. Those with closed crowns may not receive enough energy from the universe and might suffer as a result!
The crown chakra can also be called crown, sahasrara, lotus flower, thousand petals. It's associated with white crystal energy & merges with all other seven main chakras (and some minor ones too).
The crown chakra has many different colors associated with it. Purple is usually the color of this crown, and purple stones are often used as a way to stimulate or clear the crown chakra (particularly amethyst). Other colors that might be seen as relating to sahasrara include white. These colors aren't limited to just stones either - we'll explore some others in our article!
Crown Chakra Benefits
The crown chakra has to do with spirituality - understanding oneself as well as one's connection to others and that we are all interdependent on each other for survival. This area of focus helps us find clarity amid confusion during difficult times; brings calmness after storms; enhances creativity while reducing negativity & stress.
The crown chakra has many benefits for those who are lucky enough to experience it. When this crown is open and balanced, a person may find themselves more connected with their spirituality and able to take on new adventures without fear of failure or consequences. They will not be as swayed by the opinions of others - instead they'll focus on what's best for them personally. This crown also keeps us grounded in reality so that we're not swept up into our own fantasies all day long! People who have unbalanced crowns can suffer from depression because they're unable to see the realities around them, which lead to mental illness over time. Working towards balance within your crown chakra could save you some serious problems down the road!
Stones Related To The Crown Chakra

Amethyst is also helpful to release bad dreams and encourage positive ones!

Tips For Maintaining a Balanced Crown Chakra at Home or On-the-Go
The crown chakra is easily stimulated so it's important to make sure you're taking care of yourself on every level - physical, emotional and spiritual. As long as one does not overstimulate the crown or third eye chakras simultaneously, these areas can be activated by wearing some jewelry in amethyst, clear crystal or herkimer diamond, that has been placed near your crown area; this will also help keep your crown chakra balanced should you find yourself experiencing any imbalances during times of stress.
The best way to ground oneself when experiencing an imbalance is through meditation: close your eyes and focus all attention on breathing deeply while feeling each part of your body relax after exhaling. Try envisioning a light-blue or lavender color and feel it moving through your crown chakra while you ground yourself in the present moment.
The Crown Chakra Mantra
Om Dum Durgaya Namaha (Repeat this mantra while focusing on crown chakra)
"I bow to the Divine Light and Love within us all. May it be ever at peace."
In Sanskrit, “Dum” means "To Protect". So when we say 'OM' a few times before saying 'Dum Durgaya Namaha,' we are requesting the Divine to protect and bless all that is within us.
This crown chakra mantra is used in a variety of ways: one may use it for daily meditation, prayer, or when awakening from sleep; this chant can also be said before each meal or at any time you feel like you're ready to give up.
When you inhale, chant “Om” and when exhaling, chant “Dum Durgaya Namaha." Repeat this mantra at least three times in a row for the best effect. This crown chakra mantra is especially beneficial during meditation or prayer as it helps one feel more connected to the Divine.
Use this crown chakra mantra when you need help in maintaining motivation or energy levels, combining well with Clear Quartz so that it will both activate crown chakra energies while providing clarity - helping one stay calm amid any storms on every level of self.
