Violet is the crown chakra color – our connection with the energy of heaven. Violet is the color of spirituality. It has the shortest wavelength and the highest vibration of the colors of the visible spectrum of light.

Violet offers and inner sense of wholeness. With wholeness comes a sense of ending, completion of a process, and a promise of something new, illumination, rebirth.

Violet connects with sadness of letting go and also with joy of transformation. There is peace and tranquility in the newfound knowledge of profound change.

Violet color is cleansing and purifying. It is the color of magic, ritual, cleansing, purifying, connecting, mystery, and mysticism.

It is a color that allows us to glimpse other realities, beyond our physical and material reality of this earthly existence. It is pure cosmic energy.

Violet is a color of reconciliation. Of bringing together polarities – male and female, day and night, hot and cold, heaven and earth, right brain and left brain.

In this state of balance, you feel the connection with other beings, with heaven, with earth, with all of Universe. There is no separation, no duality.

As you unfold the petals of your crown chakra, you find the seat of your wisdom. You assimilate knowledge and integrate it. You know and you understand. You manifest divinity.

Violet – Illumination and Enlightenment

Spiritual and mystical experiences of the crown chakra are temporary for most of us. Only a few rare individuals in the history have attained and sustained the level of consciousness from the perspective of balanced crown chakra.

Among these individuals are Buddha, Jesus and Lao Tzu.

For most of us, experiences of crown chakra color violet are fleeting moments of transcendence. Glimpses of the highest level of reality.

But it is enough to sustain our trust and faith. It is enough for most of us to continue on this path of healing and transformation.

These moments come when they come and you can learn to increase the likelihood of having these experiences with meditation, prayer, chanting, and deep contemplation.
