At the top of the 7 main Chakras, the Crown (also called ‘Sahasrara’) is connected to our ‘higher self,’ a consciousness that unites us to the divine energy running through all life. Referred to as the “Thousand Pedaled Lotus,” this chakra embraces the symbolic qualities of the lotus flower, which processes the ability to emerge and bloom in vibrancy (and clarity) amongst the murkiest of waters.
The full blossoming of Sahasrara is an emergence from the confines of the physical body and ego, bringing forward the realization that you are pure awareness. A white light surrounds your body and like the lotus flower, you appear to glow even amongst the muddiest surroundings. We can continue to bring in light through our breath, activating the life force called “prana.” Physiologically, the Crown relates to the central nervous system and the brain, in which breath plays a key role in keeping us calm. By trusting a “knowingness” that we align with a force greater than ourselves, the crown chakra brings us a sense of peace beyond what can be intellectualized. Meditation can help us experience a transcendental consciousness, a state often referred to as the “Void,” "Akasha" or "Zero Point Field.” This state, nearly impossible to describe, is a place where we can tune in and listen. That said, there is no particular sound associated with the crown (as there is with other chakras.) Rather, it focuses on the breath as a guide to a silent place where you can truly hear. Perhaps your spirit guides have something important to say.
Though often described as violet in the 7 Chakra system, the colors of the “thousand pedals" change as the rainbow of colors pass through them. The crown chakra is truly a spectrum and combines both the masculine and feminine energies of the pingala (solar) and the ida (lunar) “nadi.” The Nadi is the main channel of energy connecting all the chakras. Simply tuning into the guidance of our crown chakra can balance the duality within us and serve as a meeting point between finite (the body and ego) and the infinite (the universe and soul). The challenge of this chakra is to liberate the spirit and at the same time stay firmly rooted to the ground. Newborn babies are perfectly set up for this as the soft spot on the top of their head is the opened crown. Yet, as we grow, the crown closes up and often people experience physical diseases as a result of separation from the infinite universe. When we realize that everything is interconnected and that we are part of the larger scheme of life, we begin to live with gratitude and faith, rather than fear and anxiety. One avenue to reaching the crown is meditation. This could start by simple concentration exercises also called “dharana”, focusing the mind on something (one thing) long enough so that it can prepare you to enter a meditative state of expansion within the inner world. Coloring, especially patterns and mandalas, is quite the perfect application for concentrated devotion. Use Chakra Mandalas as a pathway to the crown. Enjoy this art piece and breath in more compassion, kindness, and forgiveness. Life will no longer be solely about you and your desires but you may find that serving others is also in harmony with your greater purpose.
