What does the crown chakra do?
The crown chakra is associated with your spiritual connection to the divine source of energy and consciousness. It uplifts and inspires you to be your best at all times and gives you a sense of your personal divinity and connection with the universe. This chakra is located at the top of your head and represents states of higher consciousness.
Signs of an imbalanced crown chakra are cynicism, closed mindedness, and disconnection with spirit.
Color Symbolism- The colors violet and purple are associated with spirituality, transformation, determination, insight and peace. in many ancient cultures, this color was only to be worn by royals and the very wealthy partially due to the difficulty in finding dye for fabrics.
