Crown Chakra, Release Your attachments
The Crown Chakra says, “you are infinite and divine”. How do you really know that, live that, keep a job and pay your bills? It’s an interesting quandary is it not? I think that that primary problem is we have all those worldly attachments. The Eastern view of attachments is definitely different from the Western view. I used to think if I had no possessions, lived modestly, that I would start glowing in the dark, lol. WRONG.
The Eastern view of attachments are about letting go of ego, emotion, intention AND don’t love your stuff more than those around you love. This is the final article in the segment of family and generation healing of the 100 days of trance. I’d love to tell you that you just do this and do that and BOOM, you’re healed. It isn’t quite that simple but it’s close. I just don’t know what your attachments are and how they are configured; only you can know that.
The Crown Chakra Defined
The crown chakra is the seventh chakra and it is at the top of the “chakra ladder” which starts from the root chakra that grounds us on the Earth. The gift of this chakra is experiencing unity and the selfless realization that everything is connected at a fundamental level. The energy of this chakra allows us to experience mystical oneness with everyone and everything in nature.
There is no intellectual knowing at the level of the seventh chakra, but there is serenity, joy, and deep peace about life. You have a sense of knowing that there is a deeper meaning of life and that there is an order that underlies all of existence. The “way of the crown chakra” is the way of going beyond the limits of your own ego.
When we realize that everything is interconnected and that we are part of the larger scheme of life, we begin to live with gratitude, faith, and trust, rather than filled with fear and anxiety. We are guided by the higher power and we feel divinity from within and from without. (source: https://www.chakra-anatomy.com/crown-chakra.html)
Similar to the third eye chakra process, I think it’s a good idea to connect to your heart chakra first before beginning this trance process. It’s going to give you that “extra gas” you’re going to need when you encounter those attachments that might be resistant to being let go. Pesky things like your identity, career, education and loved ones. I found this process to be unsettling until it wasn’t. There are several books I like, Way of the Peaceful Warrior and the Book of Five Rings as a primer for this process.
So let’s get started.
Trance Process To Let Your Attachments Go
In your neutral space settle down into that space seated. Connect your energy from the base/root chakra all the way up to your heart chakra. Fill yourself with love and appreciation. Then ask the part of yourself that manages all of your attachments to come into this space. Ask what you are attached to in your environment, your habits, your behaviors, your beliefs, your values and in your identity. The list is usually pretty long.
Let go of the attachments in your environment. Your house, car, clothing, books electronics anything that holds you to this environment. Take all the time you need to let these things go, melt, disappear in whatever way works best for you.
Examine your habits. How you drive to work, when you get up or go to bed, what you eat or drink. All of the habits that make you… you. Everything we do on a regular basis becomes automated so be open to what appears as a habit you didn’t count on. Slowly let them go until they are gone
What do you do? How do you do that? What interesting little quirts makeup your behaviors. What family rules? Educational conditioning? What cultural rules lead to your behaviors? Examine and observe these behaviors and then let them go.
What beliefs do you have? We all have beliefs that were handed to us, learned by us or adopted from somewhere. Watch how your beliefs keep you trapped or prevent you from reaching for the dream you’ve always wanted. slowly let go of those beliefs, one by one, let go of the dreams and aspirations until they are gone.
Bring out your values. What’s right, what’s wrong, who is worthy and who is not. Values are mega-beliefs that are compounded by years of repetition. Examine your values and let them go until they are gone.
Now observe the attachments of your identity. Are you a man or a woman? A father a mother? Brother or sister? Friend or enemy? Are you Smart or stupid? Skinny or fat? You get the idea. All of these identity statements that begin with or associated with “I AM”. Let them go.
Pause for a moment and feel how it feels to be attached to nothing. Notice what you see, feel, hear, smell or taste. Watch as the world continues on without you. At this moment you’ve never been this free and alive.
Wait a few moments before moving to the next step.
Release your body.
Let go of your past, your present and your future.
Forget your conscious mind and your soul contract.
Let go of everything and be nothing. Someone people have fewer or more attachments than others and some people just need more time to let go. Stay with this as long as possible.
Connect the Crown Chakra
Reconnect to your base chakra and push the energy up through each of the chakras until you reach the crown chakra. Fill your crown chakra with energy and love and continue pushing that energy up to the center of the universe. So from the center of the earth to the center of the universe, you are connected.
Some people have the image or experience of meeting with their spiritual self. That part of yourself that lives forever has always been here and will be here after your body does not. This is your ally and he/she has just been waiting for you to make this journey and reconnect.
Your personal experience is just that, personal. I cannot imagine what your experience will be like, but I would love to know if you’re willing to tell me, later.
The feeling of having all of my chakras cleaned out and functioning was kind of a beating for me. I highly recommend that you do ALL of the clearings in a single day or single weekend when you have no other pressing personal or business related distractions. I also recommend having a guide to keep you on point. This can be someone who has done this process but it doesn’t have to be. Just make sure that this person is open to you being vulnerable and little raw during some of the processes. Probably doesn’t get more intimate than this process.
