Here we are! We've arrived at the 7th main energy center!
And that energy center is the Crown Chakra or Sahasrara, which is the Sanskrit term and means 'thousand-fold' and is commonly referred to as the 'thousand-petaled lotus'.
If you missed previous posts on the Chakras in this series, you can start here with the Root Chakra.
The Crown Chakra is located at the top of the head and some even say about a foot above the head.
The color associated with this chakra is crystal light, white or violet and is symbolized by a thousand-petaled lotus flower.
The color violet is associated with wisdom, devotion, peace and mystery.
The color white is associated with light, purity, faith and goodness.
This chakra connects you to the element of consciousness or cosmic energy.
The bija or seed sound is Om.
This chakra symbolized the limitlessness of Pure Consciousness. It correlates with our spirituality, moving beyond the self and feeling the connection of being one with the entire universe.
When this energy center is deficient, you may experience confusion, alienation and/or have a closed mind. You may also be cynical about the spiritual realm.
When this energy center is in excess, you may feel superior to others and/or take your spirituality to the extreme.
The biggest obstacle connected to this chakra is attachment.
When this energy center is balanced, you will feel more connection to Spirit and become more open-minded. You will experience pure Oneness and enter a state where illusion and all conditioning falls away.
As you begin to become more aware of this energy center, Sahasrara chakra, you will begin to question your beliefs and interpretations, going deeper and deeper within, discovering the divine essence that is at your core.
Acknowledge that you have the strength to release attachments, allowing the flow of energy to move within you and upward through the chakras to the ultimate goal of freedom.
I am one with the universe.
inhale - enjoy - exhale,
Ps. My own sadhana, spiritual practice, has been a huge reason why I have released anxiety, feel more connected to life, and have been catapulted onto a journey that fuels my soul, allowing me to tap into my divine purpose. In the near future, I will be helping others to connect with and develop their own sadhana practice - stay tuned in the coming months!
