When our crown chakra closes because of discouragement or worry, we feel isolation and unhappiness. The aura contracts and depression becomes quite literal. The experience of devotion, a loyalty or enthusiasm for a person, animal, activity or cause is one of the keys to keeping the crown chakra open.
An open crown chakra feels happy and creates a feeling of connection whether we are alone or with others. Therefore, living a life of devotion produces an inspiration for being alive and a feeling of purpose.
Don’t underestimate the power of devotion. However, it can take many forms and if your commitment is not aligned with the discernment of the third eye the choice can be misguided. My suggestion is embrace the power of devotion, while simultaneously integrating it with the wisdom that the third eye brings.
