Crown Chakra Meditation

As discussed earlier this week, our 7th chakra, the crown chakra located at the very top of the head is associated with the colors violet and pure white, as in a “light” white. It is linked to our connection with higher power, the Source, integration of the Whole, living in the now, meaning, devotion, inspiration, and higher alignment. It can sometimes be a difficult chakra to activate or clear blockages from as we typically have to work through the below six chakras before prana can easily flow to our crown. However, don’t let this discourage you from practicing meditation, pranayama, mudra and yoga as these activities will help to restore harmony and balance to both you physical and spiritual being.

The following 7th chakra meditation will help you activate and balance your sahasrara chakra.

Awaken the Sahasrara Chakra

Have your spine long leaving your lungs as open and free as possible, allowing for smooth easy breathing. With eyes closed start to visualize a violet or white light or lotus shape and begin to repeat the mantra Wahe Guru. Repeat this mantra three times. Then imagine your beam of light or lotus moving upward into the sky. Very slowly begin to see this light move through all your lower chakras – anja, vishuddha, anahata, manipura, swadhisthana and mulandhara. Take your time as you move through each lower chakra and take a few deep inhales and exhales with each chakra. If one chakra charms more energy than others, feel free to stay with it for a few minutes – this will help clear any blockages. Upon completing all chakras, begin to release your light or lotus visualization and with eyes still closed take a few more deep breaths before coming out of meditation. This practice will take about 20 – 30 minutes.
