The Crown Chakra is the pinnacle of our consciousness and the bridge between humanity and all higher powers. Further expanding from the Throat and Third Eye Chakra, the Crown reminds us that we are spiritual beings having a human experience and connected to all things, including the cosmos.
In many religions, this chakra is associated with enlightenment, which many gurus believe is possible in a single human lifetime. Focusing on illumination, creativity, pure awareness, and ending our cycles of suffering the Crown Chakra is the ultimate energy center of self-realization.
When working with the Crown Chakra, we must be careful not to blow it wide open, which can happen! Energetic boundaries and going slow are an important part of the awakening process.

How to Tell if Your Crown Chakra is Unbalanced
If your Crown Chakra is unbalanced, you may feel unsure of your connection to a higher power, have chronic fatigue, find it hard to make decisions, have no sense of “belonging” or purpose. You may experience depression, obsessive thinking, confusion, trouble grounding, or sensitivity to pollution.
If your Crown Chakra is too open, in extreme cases it can create insanity, a god complex, or psychosis, but most likely you’ll experience headaches, sensitivity to light and sounds, have confused sexual expression or frustration, or have a sense of unrealized power.
The Crown Chakra in Balance
When your Crown Chakra is in balance, you will be in complete flow. Others may even notice you’re glowing as you live your life fully in each moment. Aware of your connection to a higher power and all things, you are transcendent and at complete peace with yourself. You may start to realize that you are a magnet for light, like-minded people, and can easily manifest whatever you want!
