8. The Crown Chakra and the Thalamus Gland
This is the seventh article of our “Chakras and the Body-Mind-Soul Connection”. If you’ve enjoyed this article series and want to know more, I hope you’ll stay tuned. There is more incredible, authentic, and eye-opening information headed your way.
Summary of Our Last Lesson
In the last article, “The Brow Chakra and the Pituitary, Pineal, and Hypothalamus Gland”, I talked about how these glands function, just as the brow chakra does, to take all that information that’s being collected and decide the best way to keep you safe, stable, and healthy. In this article, we’ll talk about the crown chakra and the thalamus gland and their role in helping you become your best self.
The Thalamus Gland
As in the rest of the articles, we’re going to be looking less at what the thalamus gland is and more at what it does in order to help us interpret the function of the crown chakra and glean an increased understanding of how it operates to help us achieve higher functioning.
The thalamus collects and sorts all of the internal input from the body and all of the external input from the environment and decides what to do with that information. Its job is to make connections between those things. If the hypothalamus, for instance, relays information about a possible danger that the eyes have spotted, the thalamus will compare notes with everything you’ve experienced in the past and figure out the best route to handle the danger as quickly and painlessly as possible. All within a matter of seconds!
The sheer volume of information it receives means that the thalamus must filter through the information quickly, determining which bits of information to collect and which to discard. If it thinks this is useful information, it passes it off to the hippocampus where the memory center of the brain resides and sets the hippocampus off to work on figuring out how the new information should be filed in relation to all the other things you know about that topic.
If the information it receives tells it there is an immediate threat to the body or if there is an actionable opportunity to advance its health and welfare, it will send the information over to the amygdala for processing. The amygdala then converts that information to the appropriate emotions to ensure that you respond as quickly as possible.
The Crown Chakra and the Divine Energy
The Crown Chakra’s job is to compare the information it is receiving from the divine energy that surrounds you and the information it is gathering from the natural world around you and interpret what that means for you in terms of what steps to take next and when to take them.
The Healthy Crown Chakra
If your Crown Chakra is functioning correctly, you will intuitively know where you should be going and when you should arrive there. People will remark that good things just seem to fall into your lap. You will see everything that happens to you as a kind of open dialogue between you and the divine force that guides the universe.
You will feel confident that even the apparently negative things that happen to you are actually things working to benefit you. You will be calm even in a crisis. Your mind will be relaxed and able to think, solve problems, and capitalize on opportunities.
The Blocked Crown Chakra
You are constantly living on the edge. Everything feels random to you. You see no connections between your behavior and what happens to you. The world, as a result, seems a scary and very hostile place to be. You don’t control your thoughts, feelings, or behaviors – they control you.
Symptoms of a Too Open Crown Chakra
You feel completely disconnected from the world, as if you are living on a totally different plane from everyone else out there. You see connections between everything, but you aren’t good at communicating those connections to other people. The world, as a result, feels lonely and unwelcoming. You are in control of your thoughts, feelings, and emotions – but you haven’t figured out how to take the actions to manifest your desires on this plane of existence.
Summary of Findings
The chakras are the reception centers of the divine energy that is all around us. Keeping them clear and open is important so that you can benefit from that energy.
