Crown Chakra :: Sahasrara
Is your Crown Chakra in balance?
Located at the top of our head, this energy point is our connection to higher consciousness, connecting us deeper with ourselves and opening us up to a force of life greater than ourselves. The Sahasrara is sanskrit for “the lotus flower of 1000 petals”.
If our crown chakra is overactive we may find it difficult to ground ourselves, living in our own world, feeling inferior to those around us and lacking in empathy.
Under active Sahasrara:
An under active crown chakra may leave us feeling meaningless with a difficulty of finding a purpose in life. We may find ourselves quick to blame anything and anyone external, feeling unloved and out of touch with spirituality and our inner selves.
When the crown chakra is balanced we are in control of our emotions, truly connected with our inner selves, feeling grounded and at one with all around and beyond us. Our intuition and wisdom will guide us, selflessly devoting ourselves to the well being of all living things as we will feel and see, we are all one.
Here are some things to try which will help balance your heart chakra:
Colour - Violet or White, synchronising with all colours.
Element - Time/ space/ thought/ beyond elements
Meditation - Sit in a peaceful spot or a favourite place, making sure you’re comfortable. Using all your powers of imagination, visualise a thousand petaled lotus flower at the crown of your head beginning to open up, revealing a beam of white light travelling from you to the universe.
Feel free to listen to this mediation music to help open up your Crown Chakra:
Yoga - Specific yoga poses to help open and align the crown:
Supported Headstand (Salamba Sirsasana)
Reclining Bound Angle (Supta Baddha Konasana)
Seated Forward Bend (Paschimottanasana)
Music - Music brings people together, it can also help us bring ourselves back to balance. Drumming, singing and dancing, repeating mantras and chanting the corresponding sound to each chakra (in this case OM) creates vibrations in our bodies, these vibrations help our cells work together in harmony.
