The crown chakra is the seventh chakra. Located at the top of the head, it gives us access to higher states of consciousness as we open to what is beyond our personal preoccupations and visions. The function of the Crown chakra is driven by consciousness and gets us in touch with the universal. The Sanskrit name “Sahasrara” is sometimes used to designate the seventh chakra. It can be translated as “Thousand petals”. Considered to be the highest of the seven major chakras, this chakra (sahasrara) is regarded as a gateway to the energy of the universe itself. It is an energetic passageway that leads you from a mundane vision of life to the divine, and to absolute freedom. It is your ladder to immortality. The crown chakra, or sahasrara, is the energy center within our bodies that is responsible for thought, awareness, wisdom, and our connection to the Divine. Located at the very top of the head, the crown chakra is associated with the color violet and the pituitary gland within the brain. This chakra helps to regulate the energy of consciousness.

What is Crown Chakra Healing?
. Crown chakra meditation enables us to heal the crown chakra by removing blockages. Meditation is believed to be one of the most successful ways of healing and balancing a blocked crown chakra. Crown chakra meditation is done by visualising a white or violet light flowing in to the top of your head, submerging the crown chakra in its healing energy and washing away any blockages. Some people also combine mantra healing, singing the mantra of ‘ohm’ to help relax the mind, balancing the crown chakra and awakening the spiritual mind. Crystals or gemstones are also used for chakra balancing, Amethyst for purifying and protection, and Clear Quartz for clarity, wisdom and spiritual enlightenment.
Give up fluoride. This substance is found in treated water as well as toothpaste, and it has the potential to calcify the pituitary gland. Opt for fluoride-free toothpaste, and look into purchasing soft water that’s not been treated using harsh chemicals.
Take time out to meditate at least once a day. This helps you build a connection with the Source in a gradual fashion. The meditation you perform doesn’t have to be attached to a particular spiritual or religious doctrine; whichever religion or God you subscribe will be right for you.
Let go of attachment to things and titles since these are what make us develop an ego that is unhealthy. You need to realize that your essence is not who you are or how much you make or even where you live.
You are a valid member of the universe that can be the best they can be regardless of these trappings. the end of the day, balancing your crown chakra can go a long way in ensuring that prana moves through your body the way it should.

Crown Chakra Meditation
The sahasrara chakra synchronizes all colors, which is why it manifests as white light. It also fuses all the senses, and with this comes a spiritual connection to the infinite. Meditating with the crown chakra brings intuitive knowledge, deep understanding, strong spirituality, and an enhanced sense of awe. It allows you to see the divine interconnectedness of all forms of life. The aim of Divine Light Meditation is to use all your powers of imagination to see with your mind’s eye a brilliant white light pouring down on you.
Divine Crown Chakra Meditation
1. Sit in a comfortable meditation pose with your legs crossed and your back straight. If working in a group, sit in a circle.
2. Rest your hands in your lap, palms upward, with your left hand on top. This is the mudra (hand position) for receiving energy. Close your eyes and let your breathing become slow and even.
3. Visualize a thousand-petaled lotus at the crown of your head. Imagine its petals gently opening to reveal an intense light. Let this divine light flow down into you through your crown chakra. Repeat one of the affirmations below, or create one that has more meaning for you. If you are alone, say the words silently; in a group, you may wish to chant them out loud, in unison: “I am surrounded and protected by divine light.”
“This light nourishes my entire being.”
“I am forever walking in the light.”
“I grow stronger by tuning into the divine light.”
4. Feel the light spiraling down your body. Enjoy the warm glow as it saturates your entire being. Let every cell be permeated by light and inspiration, and every part of your consciousness become illuminated.
5. Focus your senses on the intensity of the light so that you not only see it, but hear, smell, taste, and touch it. Think of the light as a manifestation of your higher self, representing the peace that lies beyond understanding.
6. Feel like a pure channel for the light: allow yourself to be at one with it. In this state of oneness, intuitive thoughts and inspirations may enter your consciousness. Be thankful for this guidance.
7. After 15 minutes, take a few deep breaths and open your eyes.
Sounds for the Crown Chakra
The natural sound of silence is associated with the Crown Chakra. Consequently, this silence is reflected in our mental ability to contemplate and meditate. In addition, the sacred mantra tone of OM, and the vowel sound of “Eee” are attuned with the Sahasrara Chakra. A crystalline Solfeggio tone of 963 hz, and the sound healing technique of binaural beats, is the most direct method for opening the Sahasrara. As a result, these soaring, sacred tones may re-establish the connection to your Higher Consciousness, and to the Divine.
