The Crown Chakra or Sahasrara Chakra

Post is written by Dr.Manisha from Spiritual Konnect :

It is the last major chakra of our body. Crown Chakra, also known as Sahasrara Chakra is located at the top of the head. To be specific, visualize it at the soft part on a baby’s head.

As the name suggests, the Crown Chakra resides at the crown of our body, and balances the physical as well as spiritual activities, awareness, oneness with self and the universe, and is a gateway for higher consciousness. This Chakra is the only Chakra that faces up, that means, the Crown Chakra is the only Chakra in our body that opens up to the higher consciousness, the divine energy, the universal consciousness. This is the connection between the physical and other realms. It also brings us closer to the divine awareness, eternal knowledge and provides absolute peace within and around us.

Now visualize the body parts that are a part of this region. This Chakra affects the upper skull, Pituitary, Pineal Gland, Muscular system, skeletal system, Nervous System, circulatory system, lymphatic system, right brain, cerebral cortex, right side of our face and right eye, skin and hair. Therefore, if this Chakra is not balanced, it may manifest in the illnesses of Eyes, nose, ear, sinuses, Cerebellum, illnesses of skin such as eczema, rashes, warts, bacterial infections, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, brain tumors, dizziness, vertigo, frequent migraines, bone cancer, hypersensitivity to light, sound and pollutants, chronic fatigue etc.

It may cause Anxiety disorder, Depression, alienation, confusion etc. Psychologically, this Chakra helps one have a clear vision and perception about one’s own self, psychic intuitions, Self-realization, self-awareness, awareness of the universe at a larger scale, parity with everyone, spirituality; and emotionally, it enhances one’s wisdom and bliss. The color of this chakra is Violet.

An underactive Crown Chakra makes one confused, obsessed with thinking, depressed, clogs mind, frustrated, comparison with others, feeling low on self-esteem. You make unwise decisions. With an overactive Crown Chakra one may get overly indulged in the spiritual practices, to an extent that he or she may neglect the physical bodily needs. The person may feel alienated, feels that he or she doesn’t belong to this plane, overly intelligent, feels disconnected from this world, disconnected from the reality of this physical world. To balance this Chakra you may consider doing the following:
  • Imagine a violet or pure white beam of light, entering your body at the Crown Chakra.
  • Imagine the beam converting into a spinning wheel. At first, imagine the wheel spinning anticlockwise. This will deplete negative energy, if any; and then spin the wheel clockwise. This will absorb positive energy from the universe.
  • Make observing silence a habit.
  • You must do meditation, guided meditations, visualization to balance this Chakra.
  • Increase your power of being aware of your surroundings.
  • Depending upon the energy of your Crown Chakra, you may reduce or enhance the use of color Violet/White on your body and in surroundings.
