Seventh (Crown) Chakra Healing
Wake up your Spiritual Energy, intuition and wisdom. Experience a healing on the seventh chakra and bring yourself closer to the Divine. The seventh chakra, also called the Crown Chakra or Thousand-Petaled Lotus is located at the top of the head. It has the Sanskrit name of Sahasrara which means one thousand or thousand fold which denotes that this center consists of approximately 1000 petals. The color for this chakra is violet or white representing spiritual mastery, transformation, and high spiritual attainment. These colors are of the highest vibration and purest of energies.
The seventh chakras associated organs and glands include the cerebral cortex, central nervous system, right brain, right eye, right side of the face, upper skull, skin, muscular and skeletal system and pineal and pituitary glands.
Physical and emotional dysfunctions that may occur are: cerebral tumors, diseases of the muscular system, skeletal system and the skin, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, chronic exhaustion not associated with physical ailments, sensitivity to light, sound, and the environment, depression, alienation, confusion, boredom, or an inability to learn, dementia, chronic fatigue, or dizziness.
When the seventh chakra is open, the person has a spiritual connection to the Divine, it is natural for them to commit to a daily spiritual practice and they seem to have keen intuition and an understanding or knowingness about life and death. Many are spiritual teachers and set positive examples as others admire their devotion, wisdom, and compassion for all things. They are an enlightened being, representing wisdom, oneness, peace, joy and love and everyone who comes into contact with them feels safe and secure being in their presence. They represent mastery on the spiritual plane. Separation and/or criticism of oneself or others do not exist. They know how to rise above the ego and embrace the lightness of awareness. They possess selflessness, humanitarianism, and good values.
They have mastery over the body, mind and emotions and are able to live at peace even in not so perfect surroundings and set an example for any to live by. They understand we all have limitations and they accept this in themselves and others easily; they never try to change others as they know trials and tribulations are lessons for the spirit.
They see everything as a spiritual experience. They don’t worry about good luck versus bad luck. They know the divine is at work always and they are graceful and humble at its presence and a source of inspiration for all. They radiate love to all.
You know your souls purpose at this level. If you decide not to follow it then you choose to live in the lower chakras. If you choose to follow it, life gives you everything you need to fulfill your purpose, including an inexhaustible amount of energy.
If this chakra is weakened or blocked, the person may have a lack of purpose, loss of meaning or identity, and issues with trust. They may be proud, even arrogant, or narcissist, have no concern for another person’s feelings, they may be depressed or confused, or have trouble learning things. They will be unhappy and have low self-esteem and may feel misunderstood or frustrated with everything. They could be catatonic or exhibit no spark of joy. Taken to the extreme, they may withdraw from the world and be very anti social, which diminishes their influence on others.
Ironically chronic illness can cause this chakra to weaken, on the other hand, a weak crown chakra can cause chronic illness. Psychic attacks are common and some end up in mental institutions because they are easily possessed by spirits but are diagnosed as psychotic instead.
The blocked crown chakra personality tends to be very lonely as it rejects help from others, relying on its own intellect and left brain to get things done. It seems to be attached to the material world and lacks a feeling of fulfillment. It lives life as if something is missing and it can’t find the answer. It may feel emotionally numb, exhausted and empty blaming its problems on either poor health or something that is missing in the material world.
When blocked crown chakra personalities realize that work is not satisfying they find themselves asking the age old question, “Is this all there is?” Then their whole world comes crashing down when they realize hard work and logical thinking didn’t make them happy.
Many act out in negative ways; they leave their spouses, or jobs, buy expensive sports cars or leave home to find the happiness they so long for. Some do eventually find spirituality and that’s when their pain ends. They realize their limitations and accept there is another way to obtain answers to life’s unending questions- connecting oneself to the higher self or higher power, which is what the healthy seventh chakra personality lives by.
This personality is actually the complete opposite of the root chakra personality as it believes it is responsible for everything that happens in its life, unlike the victim who blames everyone else for its life circumstances.
Excessive energy can express itself as severe mental disturbance, seeing and hearing voices that do not make any sense or tell you to do bad things, migraines, frustration, arrogance, rigid beliefs, greed, or manic depressive illness.
To recognize someone with a blocked seventh chakra, look for:
The woman who is chronically exhausted for no apparent reason
The man who feels lonely and refuses to accept help
The teenage boy who acts like a ‘know it all’
The little girl who can’t seem to remember what she just studied in school.
Questions to ask oneself
- Are you often depressed, experiencing a lack of joy?
- Do you feel tired after getting a good nights sleep?
- Do you suffer from a chronic illness?
- Do you feel disconnected to the Divine?
- Do you believe in life after death?
- Do you define who you are by what you do?
- Do you believe in a higher self?
- Do you control your destiny?
- Do you solve most of your problems with sheer will power?
- Do you meditate?
Warning: Too many spiritual students are in a hurry to master their spirituality and become enlightened. They may choose to work on their crown chakra first. This is not safe and a student will go much further in their spiritual growth if they work on the lower chakras before attempting work on the crown chakra. Awakening the crown chakra before all the other chakras have been worked can lead to depression, confusion, and a loss of reality. The crown chakra should always be opened gently.
The crown chakra begins to develop during the age of 7 or 8.
Traumas during childhood will cause the seventh chakra to become weak. The seventh chakra begins to develop at the age of seven and eight and can continue development through out the teens. What happens to you at the age of seven and eight determines how trustful you will be in your life as an adult.
At the age of 8, children begin to live their lives by other people’s standards. Their beliefs don’t seem to matter anymore as parents, teachers, and society tell them what to do. With all the information coming to them by authority figures they begin to forget their true nature, how they truly feel about things and what thoughts they have. Their thoughts and feelings and therefore their beliefs are dictated by somewhere outside themselves and if not aware of this, can remain there for a lifetime.
Any trauma at this age will reflect issues with forgiveness. Feeling accepted, being in denial, issues with truth, deception and doubt.
Emotional traumas at this age will play out as blocked emotions later in life. As an adult, you may forget the initial incident that caused your problem but once you allow yourself to feel the emotion, memories of the event come out and relive themselves.
Growing up, how did your parents feel about you? If they rejected you or didn’t want you around, you will tend to attract people who reject you in adulthood, you may get blamed for things you didn’t do or find it difficult to have friends, as there is always conflict.
If they accepted you as you are, you would have no problem accepting yourself or being tolerant of others as an adult.
The age of 7 or 8 is where many of our fear thoughts begin.
Are you aware of most of your fear thoughts?
Do you find yourself thinking of one particular subject more than others?
Ask yourself why and try to discover what event in your life caused these thoughts.
What do you fear?
Having fearful thoughts means there is an unresolved issue with this fear. Focus on this thought till you begin to realize where it began.
For instance, if you are afraid of the water, allow yourself to feel the fear and try to go back in time and figure out why you fear water. You may have to go into a past life to resolve this issue.
Did someone throw you in a pool before you knew how to swim?
Did you know someone who drowned?
Find out the root of the fear and realize that was in the past and this is now. Let the fear go. Many times, simply becoming aware of when the fear was rooted, will help you resolve the issue for good.
Can you honestly say you like yourself?
If there are some areas of your life you do not like, write them all down and try to relate them to something in your past so you can clear them.
Are you hard on yourself?
Do you have a hard time forgiving yourself or others?
There is much talk about forgiveness of self and others in every spiritual community and religion. Everyone needs to forgive someone and many need to forgive themselves. Realize we are not perfect. We do make mistakes at times and we are still learning how to live in peace. Don’t be so hard on yourself or others.
Remember the saying “ Be kind, for everyone is fighting a hard battle.”
The reason life is not easy is because we have forgotten who we are. We feel separate from others and the Divine. We still see life through the ego because we have learned how to do that. It is not our fault. However, it is our responsibility to take control of our lives and know that if we choose to see things differently, we can have a really happy life.
It takes a shift in perception. This is all. When you come to realize that we are here to learn lessons and help and heal others, we don’t look at what people have done to us as being so bad. Rather, it is a fear in them that has caused them to act in a way that is not love, and it becomes easy to forgive when one realizes the core of this bad act was simply they didn’t know any better.
You must see others as having the same substance as you. We are all made up of the same chemicals, we all share the reality that we are part of the whole universe, the plants, animals, sky and the stars. Once we can truly see this, we learn to love others unconditionally despite their faults. We become at peace with ourselves and the world.
If you need to forgive someone, think back to what they did to you, allow yourself time to really feel the emotion of pain, hurt, and betrayal. Form this energy you are now focusing on intently into a balloon that is floating right in front of you. You can imagine this energy as a color or an object if you like. For our purposes here, we will describe this negative energy as a cloud of muddy colors such as red, brown or gray. Will this energy to come out of every pore of your body, oozing out and away from your body as if the balloon is a powerful magnet, pulling it away from you. Now the balloon is filled with this dark energy. You may need to imagine two or three balloons, or even picture the balloon the size they use for balloon rides. When you feel all this frustrated energy is all released from your body and into the balloon, will the balloon to float away. You watch as the balloon ascends into the sky, carrying with it all your pent up emotions from the past. The balloon floats further and further away from you and you watch as it becomes smaller and smaller until you are no longer able to see it. You know that it is in outer space and will continue to rise until it finds the brilliant white light of the infinite intelligence. Once it floats to the light, all that it carries gets burned to ashes and transforms into pure crystallized light.
You can also write down all your feelings toward the person you need to forgive, and burn them in a fire, watching them turn to ash to be no more.
The more you can release the ego identity, the more positive energy you can absorb.
Ask yourself? Who are you beyond your ego? Beyond your job, your looks, your nationality, who are you really?

Yellow will have a balancing effect on you.
We will schedule a healing on the seventh chakra for May 28th, Saturday between 10:30 A. M. and 1 P.M EST.
All I ask of you is to take 20 minutes of your time to relax in a comfortable setting of your choice. Make sure you will not be disturbed. If you have any of the crystals or aromatherapy oils mentioned above, use them during the session to assist in the clearing. I will be sending healing energy directly into the chakra, clearing any debris that might have accumulated over time. I will ask your angels and guides to assist in the clearing as well as my own.
How I clear the seventh chakra: I bring myself into a meditative state, and then I first clear my own energy field with white light. Next, I will read off the names of those who would like a healing and ask my guides and angels to come and assist me. If there is a picture of you online or you would like to send me one, I will gaze at it to help me connect with your energy.
Since the crown chakra color is violet or white, I will call on the angelic realm of the highest vibrations to heal this chakra. Imagine you are sitting outside in a comfortable position. The night sky is filled with the brightest stars, the moon is full and glowing brightly, lighting up the sky and the entire landscape of fields and trees below it. You notice a star glowing brighter than the others but it seems so far away. It begins to move closer and as it does you notice it looks like a huge white ball of pulsating energy. It is clear and pure crystallized energy of the highest vibration. It is far in the sky, yet you feel its heat radiating down on you.
This is angelic energy and it slowly floats down toward you and spreads out filling up your entire energy field with white light. Your energy field is now pulsating and glowing with the purest of energies. Now notice how the white light forms back into a ball and moves toward the top of your head. It begins to fill your crown chakra up with its vibrant energy. Feel it glowing and pulsating as its heat begins to clear out any cloudy dark debris, all the pent up emotions that are trapped there, all the stored pain and emotional baggage. Let it take the confusion, depression, and past hurts with it. Watch as the white ball of energy turns a darker color and whirlwinds up into the sky, taking all the pain with it, far away, higher and higher till you can’t see it any longer. The wind takes it where there is pure white light and it transforms it into the positive healing energy of love.
Take a few deep breaths during this process and imagine an empty space where the pain used to be.
Once I feel the energy is clear, I ask the angels and guides to create another ball of white light in the sky. This crystallized glowing ball of energy floats down from the sky. It swirls joyfully through the sky as it pulsates with white and violet light of the highest vibration about a foot from the top of your head. This light glows increasingly brighter as it fills up with pure white light and love from the power of the universe. This light begins to fill your chakra, glowing brighter and brighter. You see bright, vibrant, white and violet colors flowing into your crown chakra glowing and pulsating. This is pure crystallized light and I ask it to remain there for as long as the person wants it.
*You can imagine this as well during the healing.
Remember, if you are not available for the healing at that particular time, just make the statement below whenever you are ready to receive the healing:
“I am now ready and open to receive this chakra healing from Linda Capobianco.”
And lie down to receive it. Breathe in and out, allowing the healing to take place. Feel yourself connected to everyone. You feel healthy and strong. You feel alive and joyful. You are now connected to your higher self and can hear the inner voice of wisdom that is there to guide and protect you through out your life and always. Join the healing. Allow fresh, pure energies to flow through you now and always!
