The crown chakra is our center of knowledge as well as our connection to divinity, spirituality and everything in the universe, physical or otherwise.
Being spiritual is not necessarily being religious and religious people aren’t necessarily spiritual. Spirituality is knowing in your heart and soul that there is a higher power and that we are connected to it and everything around us.
Spirituality is pure love and radiates to every aspect of ones life. It’s the understanding that you can grow within yourself and your world. That you have the power to change and that no one will ever reach perfection in our earthly form but that we are all perfect in our divine form, both infinite and magnificent.

It’s continuously coming from a place of peace, love and acceptance. Spirituality is the true essence of freedom.
Religion is structured with rules and titles. It puts everyone on different levels of importance where in spirituality we are all equal.
There are hundreds of religions, each with their own structures and truths. There is just one spirituality.
I didn’t come here to lecture on the differences between spirituality and religion though. They can be completely separate or thoroughly intertwined depending on the individual in question.
But this all comes from our crown chakra. Our spiritual chakra.
I grew up in a church of christ which is one of the stricter forms of Christianity over here in good ole ‘Merica. My family was church of christ. We went to church every Sunday morning and sometimes the other days too. Women and girls wore dresses and didn’t speak. Men led everything. Music wasn’t allowed and neither were questions (from my experience).
Even though I was born and raised into this environment, I felt incredibly disconnected from it. The stories didn’t make sense to me, not so much the walking on water or the giant flood. These I could understand through my child’s eyes. But my big question was, “Where did the dinosaurs fit in?” haha.

But I’m getting off topic, I noticed that everyone at my church listened to the preacher say one thing and agreed with him, but then went out and did other things. I felt like people treated church like a social event. Something they did to become respected in the community.
The adults always seemed to prefer to stand around gossiping and speaking ill of people rather than embracing and practising what they were being taught.
As I grew older I started going with my friends to their churches and found the same things.
I then decided that organized religion wasn’t for me. But living in Alabama, there was no where else to turn. So I pretty well drifted around in spirituality limbo.
I felt stuck. I didn’t know what religion I was. I didn’t know where I belonged. I didn’t think there was a name for what I believed.
Somewhere along the line, somewhere in my early twenties I was filling out a form of some sort and there was an option under religion that read “spiritual not religious” and wow did it stick with me.
“Spiritual not religious” I didn’t know that was a thing. It felt so correct! So I started researching and here we are today. And let me tell you, it has made all of the difference in the world. Finally knowing where I fit in has allowed me to stop drifting around lost and firmly plant myself somewhere.
It’s allowed me to grow myself and build everything I need in life and see what about myself needs fixing. Spirituality to me is about finally feeling complete and knowing my place in the universe. And I couldn’t recommend it more!
Whatever you connect with, do so often. Whatever you believe in, don’t stop your journey until you feel at peace with it. When you have that figured out, doors to endless possibilities will open for you.
