The purple symbolic color of spirituality is a blend of strong reds and calming blues. Almost sounds like a storm, doesn’t it? In fact, the sky sometimes turns purple before a storm. You are most likely aware of purple and its association with royalty and prestige. In our childhood fairy tales, the sorcerer almost always wears purple. What’s more, many believe that purple helps us get in touch with our deepest thoughts.
7th Chakra • Sahasrara • 🕉 Crown Chakra • Purple
The seventh chakra or the crown chakra is depicted as white, gold, violet, and the purple symbolic color. If your crown chakra suffers from blocks, you experience depression, alienation, and inability to learn. It causes strong urges to feel popular or an excessive need for sympathy. When you release blockage of our crown chakra, it aligns you with the oneness of the universe. In so doing, it gives you confidence to move forward with your plans and dreams.
The crown chakra is at the top of the head where energy from your body moves up and out of your body. Also, many believe that this is the area where your body and spirit come together as the purest point of your existence. In fact,you often see the lotus symbolized as the crown chakra. Hence, the name Sahasrara which interprets as “The Lotus with One Thousand Petals.”
To heal or unblock your crown chakra, use the technique of meditation. Also, express gratitude for all that you are. Then, look outside yourself to help others and develop a spiritual connection with all that is around you.
The Minerals 💎
A variety of gemstones represent the purple symbolic color of spirituality. My personal favorite is Amythyst. The purple Amethyst is a type of quartz with wonderful healing properties. First, Amethyst provides powerful protection against psychic attack. As a result, it turns the negative energy into love and gives protection from negative energy. It also relieves stress, soothes irritability and mood swings. In addition, Amythyst helps ease compulsive behaviors remarkably.
Big chunks of crystal rocks are not always easy to carry around with us. So, try something simpler such as a necklace or a bracelet that you wear for lovely, elegant healing on the go!
The Essential Oil 💦
There are many varieties of essential oil that goes well with and enhances the spiritual experience of purple but my favorite is Lavender Essential Oil. Nothing calms or puts me into a meditative state faster than when I have my diffuser going with a touch of lavender essential oil.
Lavender essential oil is only from the flowers of the plant, however, this process harnesses the most potent and pure aromas from the petals. Use lavender as a scent for soaps, lotions, and cosmetics. You will recognize it by its alluring earthy scent with a subtly spicy undertone. Today Lavender is in use for homeopathic remedies and aromatherapy.
