Eating Right for your Crown Chakra

"Where your thoughts go, energy flows...." or so the saying goes. When your body feels good though, there's no denying it, you feel good. But when it's depleted, that's another story. Let's discover how to mend your body's energy system by supporting it with the right foods and daily self-care.

Your Crown Chakra:

It is so vital to take care of our noggins, where would we be without them? Often times they get a bad rep for all the over-thinking, over-analyzing, over-critical busy work they do daily. On the flip-side though, they do help us to navigate the ever-changing waters of life. A lot of us take for granted optimal, healthy brain function; until something goes wrong. There is a stigma attached to wacky brain behaviour, even though it happens to everyone at some point in their lives. Many believe that this is something to keep hidden; in fact it's nothing to be ashamed of or to take lightly.

The brain is located within the 6th and 7th Chakras, or more precisely between the 3rd Eye and Crown Chakras. If energy is blocked in this area, you may find yourself immersed in emotional patterns concerning such topics as faith, intuition, seeing the bigger picture of life and where you fit into it, or perhaps a need to control situations in your life or someone else's life. It may also be a refusal to see, feel, or think beyond your 5 senses, or stubborn patterns of having to accomplish tasks in only one way.

Common disorders & symptoms:

When your brain is stressed, it can show it in a number of ways throughout the body. Panic attacks, anxiety, insomnia, excessive sweating, heart palpitations, increased urination, memory loss, foggy thinking, migraines, poor concentration, headaches, muscle twitching, hormonal fluctuations, schizophrenia, dementia, irritability, feelings of hopelessness or depression, vision problems, or brain tumours are all signs that your system is clearly stressed.

How to support it:

I believe that many abnormal brain patterns come from nutritional deficiencies, stress, lack of sleep, worrying, denying emotional pain and/or emotional issues, that may stem from longtime nutritional deficiencies. Always make sure you check with you health professional for the cause of your symptoms; here's a quick list to feel better and boost your chakra:

  • Eat the rainbow; studies have shown that eating a wide variety of colours in your diet can help you ward off all sorts of diseases. Fill up you plate with colours!

  • Eat brain food: Flax seeds, walnuts, avocados, chia seeds, broccoli, oatmeal, salmon, blueberries, whole grains, coconut oil

  • Rest; turn off your phone, computer and tablets and let your eyes and brain rest. We need time to assimilate the info that comes in on a daily basis

  • Meditate; turn off your brain and breathe. Enough said!

  • Play; go play outside and shake off the stress. Getting your body moving is the BEST way to stay healthy and young at heart

  • Play brain games; challenge your brain to something new everyday to keep learning and stay sharp!

It's ok to let yourself fall apart; when we surrender and let go, we allow the healing and light to get in. Be well xox Joanna McDonald is a spiritual mentor, Reiki Master and teacher with an office
