What is your crowning glory? Is it your appearance? Your intelligence? Your loving heart?
When I think about being the best version of myself, in any situation, I am able to imagine what that may be like by getting in touch with my crown chakra. The crown chakra, located at the top of your head, is your energy center that is your spiritual connection. It is where you find meaning and transcend the physical. During the process of letting go of earthly attachments, you naturally connect to a higher consciousness. If you have meditated regularly, it is very likely that you know what I am talking about. The experience is often light and deep at the same time. It is immensely peaceful and can be described as bliss. In this state, there is no feeling of lack or wishing for more. It is, just as it is.
Even when you need to be consciously functioning with daily tasks, you can still allow your spirit to connect in this way. Use your breath, be mindful, close your eyes, bring your attention to the top of your head, and set your intention to connect to the best version of yourself, to your higher self, to greater consciousness, to divine. Breathe deeply again and open your eyes. Notice how your perception changes. When truly connected, you may notice that the peace that you feel is your crowning glory.
