Balance crown chakra: The crown chakra, or Sahasrara in Sanskrit, is the seventh and final primary energy centre in the subtle body that you must bring in to balance to achieve full Kundalini awakening.
It is located on the crown (or top) of your head.
It is important to bring all of your chakras in to balance, none more so than the crown chakra. This short guide will help you to discover and bring in to balance your crown chakra.
The Crown Chakra; or Sahasrara
First, a little about the chakra itself. The more you know about the crown chakra, the greater the ease with which you will be able to engage with it.
The crown chakra governs our spirituality and consciousness, as well as our sense of oneness with each other and the universe.
Activating and bringing in to balance the crown chakra is the final step in fully awakening the subtle body and the Kundalini energies that flow through it.
When the crown chakra is blocked, we are often consumed by the ego. We find ourselves to be closed off to the spiritual world and we often withdraw from spirituality altogether and feel overwhelmed by cynicism.
On the other hand, when the crown chakra is overactive, we might develop an obsession with spiritual matters.
This can be unhealthy as we need to be rooted enough in the physical world for our spiritual work to mean anything.
Achieving the right balance should be the order of the day, then.
But how exactly do we do that?
Balance Crown Chakra: 6 Easy Steps
We balance our crown chakra in much the same way as we balance all of our chakras:
Meditation and application.
Begin by preparing your meditative space. Ideally, this will be a place where you are comfortable and where you will not be disturbed.
It should be quiet, have access to plenty of sunlight during the day and adequate lighting for the night, and you should be able to spend a significant amount of time in the space.
Put out some crystals if you have them, clear quartz and opal are good ones for this, as well as preparing scents and aromas.
We like lemon or other citrus scents for chakra balancing as they help to focus the mind.
Sit or lie down, however, is most comfortable, and close your eyes. Let your mind drift for a while, slowly letting the day go past but not spending time thinking about it. The object is to clear your mind.
Once clear, we should focus our mind on the spiritual energies in the crown chakra. Once we have that chakra in focus, we should feel a light buzzing on the crown of the head.
Once here, we must reflect on our spiritual senses. We reflect on the oneness of all things, on the transcendental nature of consciousness, and most importantly on how we are taking those concepts and applying them to life.
We listen to our spirit guides through our intuition, hearing the guidance. There are areas we must improve on.
Then, we simply reflect on what we have learned about our spiritual state and apply the lessons to our lives.
We return again and again to this meditative practice and, over time, we will notice an improvement.
