How to Overcome an Existential Crisis

You know that feeling that causes you to question your current circumstance and wonder if there’s something better for you? It may be disenchantment, a lack of motivation or boredom that prompts you to ask the question.

Sometimes asking that question can result in experiencing a full-out existential crisis, where you find yourself wondering whether your life has any purpose, meaning or value.

And while this all seems very sad and dreary, the truth is that existential crises are good – it’s a sign that your soul is telling you that you’re in the wrong place and you need to take action to get yourself back on path.

Overcoming an Existential Crisis Through Energy Healing
The chakra that is associated with understanding one’s life purpose is the crown chakra. If you are going through an existential crisis, chances are that your crown chakra is closed or imbalanced.

Other chakras that are associated with existential crises are the third eye chakra, which is the energy centre of insight and the throat chakra, which is the energy center that allows you to express your purpose in the world.

Working on these chakras through energy healing can assist with providing clarity regarding your purpose and what steps you need to take to live a soulful life.

Here are some other tips on how you can overcome an existential crisis:

Pay Attention to Your “Haunting Hobbies”
You know those things that you love to do but feel like you have no time for them and yet they continue to possess your mind? Craft space in your life to follow through on them. If you feel like something is missing in your life without them, chances are that they are meant to be part of your life path and purpose.

Consult with People You Respect
Sometimes when you lose faith in yourself and have a lack of mental clarity, the people who are dearest to you can remind you of your uniqueness and what you can contribute to the world. Also pay attention to any compliments you may receive from them or others – if someone tells you that you are good at something, consider whether it’s a skill or activity that you’d like to pursue and develop.

Get Away
Sometimes when you are caught up in the day-to-day activities of your busy life, it’s hard to take a step back and give yourself a reality check. Plan a mini-getaway or even a day where you are far-removed from your usual activities so you can contemplate on what you need to do to get things moving in the direction you’d like.

Have Patience
Change takes time so be sure to focus on the silver lining in your current circumstance while you await the fruitful return of your action steps.

Remember that it’s in your control to end your existential crisis – so embrace your inner power and create change!

Crown Eye Chakra - Your Faith Center
Crown Chakra.jpg

The crown chaka is located above your head and is the colour violet. This is the energy center that is associated with universal connection, spiritual consciousness and our life purpose.

When our crown chakra is balanced, we are free from anxiety and have a strong sense of faith. We are able to cherish every moment of our lives and surrender all fear.

On a mental and physical level, an imbalanced crown chakra manifests as anxiety, depression, mental illness, headaches, MS and cognitive disorders.

Experiences that lead to a crown chakra imbalance:
– you went through a traumatic or difficult experience and stopped believing in a benevolent force in the universe
– you have felt like an angry victim of the universe
– you lost all sense of faith that things could or would change for the better

Tips to Balance Your Crown Chakra

This is one of the best ways to open your crown chakra. It calms down our mental chatter and raises our conscious awareness to develop a deeper understanding of life.

Meditation has also proven to be effective at combating anxiety, depression and nervous system disorders.

Handle Challenges with Grace
Instead of becoming fearful of the universe or angry at it for a difficult situation in your life, handle your challenges gracefully by finding the silver lining.

Use the Following Affirmations
“I am connected to a formidable force that will support me and help me through my challenges”
“I am divine”
“I am aligned with my higher purpose”

Use the Following Crystals
These crystals correspond to the frequency of a healthy crown chakra and are great to carry, meditate with, or use during energy healing: Quartz, Rutilated Quartz, Celestite, and Angelite.

Third Eye Chakra - Your Insight Center

The third eye chakra sits between your eyebrows and is the colour indigo. This is the energy center that is associated with deep insight, perspective, wisdom and creative visualization.

When our third eye chakra is balanced, we are able to approach life circumstances with deep understanding and creativity. We are also able to have an accurate intuitive sense and foresight.

On a physical level, an imbalanced third eye chakra manifests as eye issues, headaches, and neurological disturbances. Emotionally, an imbalance may appear as anxiety. On a behavioural level, one may have difficulties focusing or concentrating. On a mental level, one may either be delusional or lack in imagination. An imbalance in the third eye can also cause one to be overly analytical or take things too literally.

 Experiences that lead to a third chakra imbalance:
• Being programmed by institutions, organizations, or parents in a manner that forces you to ignore your intuitive sense
• Not spending enough time using the right, creative side of your brain
• Going through difficult times resulting in an expectation of the worst for the future

Tips to Balance Your Third Eye Chakra
This is one of the best ways to expand your third eye chakra. Try mindfulness-based meditation to keep you in the present moment or transcendental meditation to release anxiety from your mind, body and spirit.

People often think of daydreaming as a waste of time but everything that exists now was once imagined. Spend time imagining a positive future or daydreaming about your wishes.

Pay Attention to Your Dreams
Your subconscious mind speaks to you through imagery in your dreams. If you spend time recording and analyzing them, it is likely that you will uncover important insights about yourself and your life.

Embrace Your Creativity
Remember that no matter what you are going through in your life, you have the power to change it. Stay optimistic and use your creativity to take you to a better place. Remember that life is a journey that can’t be rushed and even baby steps are significant.

Use the Following Affirmations
“I can find a solution to every problem in my life”
“I am open-minded”
“I trust and follow my inner guidance”

Use the Following Crystals
These crystals correspond to the frequency of a healthy third eye chakra and are great to carry, meditate with, or use during energy healing: Amethyst, Lapis Lazuli, and Charoite.
