Crown Energy Center Lesson
Today we are going to find out about the energy center called the crown. The crown is where we receive and experience wisdom and enlightenment from God. Many pictures of Jesus and other great masters and angels show a halo around the head. This halo represents the opened crown center.
The open crown chakra is why we see a flame on the head of the Buddha in many pictures and statues of him.
One time people asked the Buddha who he was. He said, “I am awake.” Because his crown chakra was open, he had divine wisdom and was awake to who he really was — his Mighty I AM Presence. If you look at the Mighty I AM Presence in the top of the chart, you can see that all around the head is the rings of the Causal Body like a halo.
When the energy rises from the base of your spine all of the up through the other energy centers into your crown, you experience the illumination of the mind of God and the compassion of the heart of God, making you want to share the wisdom you have learned.
Sometimes we feel we cannot figure out the next step to take, whether it is in a drawing we are doing, or a paper we are writing for school, or in some other project. Just be still, meditate on your crown chakra and see what ideas God sends to you!
What Is A Crown?
You know what a crown is, right? Who wears one? Kings and queens wear crowns. The original idea of kings and queens was that they were anointed by God to rule over their people with kindness and justice, because of their connection to God.
When your crown chakra opens, your energy has risen all of the way up from the base of the spine. This is like the mother God of the energies of the base of the spine coming together with the father God in the crown and when they meet there is a great celebration. When the father-mother God energies are united inside of you, you are crowned king of light. You are the master of yourself.
You now hold the key to the incarnation of God. That is the inner meaning of the word “king. “
K = key
IN = incarnation
G = God
When your crown chakra is fully open, you are like the king or queen, ruling all of your own energies.
Where do we wear a crown? We wear a crown on the top of our head. Our crown chakra is right at the top of our head, and it opens up with almost 1,000 petals! What color is it? The crown is brilliant yellow.
Activity 1: Make a Crown
Provide a crown pattern with yellow or gold paint or crayons, gold glitter and mock jewels to glue on. (You can use the pattern included here.)
The key word for the energy center at the crown is wisdom and that means when we think the thoughts like the ones in Gods mind. When we are in school we learn many things, but it is when we learn about God and feel the light shining in our mind with Gods ideas, that we are really learning wisdom. To get the ideas of God, sometimes we have to learn to be still and quiet.
Activity 2: The Silence Game
“‘Lets try a game called the Silence Game. (Try this only if you feel it will succeed with your child or your group. Don’t be afraid to give it a try if you think it MIGHT succeed, you may be surprised how many children take to it.)
Have your child sit on the floor with legs crossed we sometimes say “Criss-cross applesauce” as a reminder of how to sit. Give the following directions in a quiet, soothing voice.
- Now we are going to see if we can make silence. First lets get comfortable and see if we can make our legs and feel very still and quiet.
- Now, lets put our hands in our laps and see if we can make them be very still and quiet.
- Now, lets see if we can make our tongues be very still and not make a sound!
Wait a moment as you and your child quiet down. Lower your voice still more.
- I want you to listen very carefully and see if there are things you don’t usually hear. Stay very still and quiet. Don’t make a peep.
Pause for a few moments, as long as you feel you can. You can stop at this point or go on to the next brief section.
When you sense stirring about to begin, say,
- Now, I am going to call you by name, very quietly. As soon as you hear your name, you can quietly get up and come to sit by me.
When it is over, congratulate your child on making silence. Ask what she heard. You might make a comment about what you heard to get her started. Discuss as long as your child is interested.
Activity 3: Draw
Draw what you heard.
Have your child write or draw about what she heard in the silence.
You know, it is good to be quiet sometimes, especially when you are out in nature. Do you like to play outside? Sometimes if you are playing outside all by yourself, you can sit down for a while and think about God and maybe use your third eye to see your Mighty I AM Presence, the pink flame of God in your heart of the golden flame of illumination in your crown.
When you think more and more about God ands less about all of the things outside, it helps your crown chakra to open up.
Activity 4: Color Crown Chakra
Color and mount the crown chakras to color and mount.
Give your child time to complete their chakra person
if there are any pieces missing or if your child wants to decorate her project.
Activity 5: Review of Energy Centers
Once the childs energy center is complete, help him or her put it up on a wall in a place of honor in your home, in the kitchen or in a bedroom.
Since this is the last session about the seven energy centers, ask if your child can tell you something about each chakra. Begin with the base of the spine and go up to the crown.
Activity 6: I AM Decrees
Let us give some prayers, to seal ourselves and our energy centers in light.
Prayer to Archangel Michael This is a special prayer we can give every day to ask the beautiful blue angel of protection to always stay with us and keep us safe:
Lord Michael before,
Lord Michael behind,
Lord Michael to the right,
Lord Michael to the left,
Lord Michael above,
Lord Michael below,
Lord Michael, Lord Michael, wherever I go!
I AM his love protecting here (3X).
Beloved I AM Presence bright,
Round me seal your tube of light.
From ascended master flame,
Called forth now in Gods own name.
Let it keep my temple free
From all discord sent to me.
I AM calling forth violet fire,
To blaze and transmute all desire.
Keeping on in freedoms name
Till I AM one with the violet flame!
Violet Fire Decree
I am a being of violet fire,
I am the purity God desires!
We can give these decrees every day for the rest of our lives!
Activity 7: Question Cards
Here are some questions for a quiz on the energy centers. They are designed so you can cut them out and begin to build a deck of question cards. You may want to print them and mount them on 3” x 5” index cards for long-term use. As you study each energy center, add the new cards to your deck. It gets more fun!
Children love to be quizzed, because they love to show you that they know the answers. Fun repetition of simple games leads to mastery of knowledge. If your child is a reader, let him ask you the questions first. This is a powerful way to review the facts before he takes his turn.
*Cards marked with # 7 are quiz cards for the third eye energy center. With each new energy center lesson, your child can add the new question cards to the deck.
