Crown Chakra - Sahasraar
The seventh chakra is located at the top of the head. It is known as the "crown chakra". It is related to your personal connection to the universe. Blockages here can manifest in psychological problems. When developed, this chakra can bring you knowledge, wisdom, understanding and spiritual bliss.
When your crown chakra is balanced, you can reach a state of pure peace, fulfilment and enlightenment. This feeling is quite rare and special. Opening this chakra is the final stage of spiritual development, which started happening within the throat and brow chakra.
The crown chakra brings purpose and meaning to life. Your life can take a drastic shift or turn for the better if this chakra becomes balanced. This new direction or life change would happen from a new understanding and sense of purpose. This chakra goes beyond the delusions of your ego and views them with a sense of detachment. It creates a special inner peace that people are often drawn to.
Ways to balance the Crown Chakra
Meditating in any position, like a seated position, full lotus, Padmasana or corpse pose, Savasana in Sanskrit can balance your crown chakra. Meditating helps improve self awareness and allows you to focus on the present moment.
