Recognizing the interconnectedness of all chakras is also a vital step toward addressing the complexities of daily life. Because this very interconnectedness extends to the endocrine system, underscoring the significant influence of chakra health on the emotional, mental, and physical dimensions of your entire being.

What is the Crown Chakra

The Crown Chakra, also known as the Sahasrara, is positioned as the final energy center within the traditional Hindu seven chakra system that holds a unique and profound place in how it influences your mental experiences. It encompasses all that transpires within the realm of the mind, serving as a pivotal point for your consciousness and spiritual connection.

You can envision the mind as a stage where the crown chakra facilitates the unfolding of various mental dramas: from tragedy to comedy, from excitement to ennui. You as the observer is in the audience, you get to engage with any unfolding narratives (AKA your thoughts) recognizing yourself in their portrayals and narratives.

This continuous stream of mental activity allows you to assimilate experiences, weaving them into the fabric of your belief systems. It is these beliefs that, in turn, sculpt the reality you perceive and live within.

The Crown Chakra emerges as a domain where your mind, awareness, thoughts. intelligence, and information converge into one place, one stage. It is a space where the abstract and tangible thoughts intersect, guiding the construction of your worldview and sense of self.

Enlightenment through your crown chakra involves transcending the ego and realizing a state of unity and oneness with the universe, where individual consciousness merges with universal consciousness, illuminating the true nature of reality.

How to Heal the Crown Chakra


There are so many different ways to meditate. I am a personal fan an avid-user and teacher of Kundalini Yogic technology. 

Kundalini Yoga, known for its focus on awakening the Kundalini energy at the base of the spine, incorporates specific meditation practices designed to elevate consciousness, enhance mental clarity, and promote emotional stability.

Using Kundalini meditation techniques, practitioners aim to unlock and channel this dormant energy upwards through the chakras, leading to an expanded state of awareness and a profound sense of connection with the universe. These meditations often include the use of mantras, breath work (pranayama), and mudras (hand positions) to intensify the practice and facilitate the movement of energy.

Meditation for the Crown Chakra

An easy and effective meditation to connect with your higher consciousness. 

  1. Sit cross legged on a chair in easy pose, or in a chair with your feet flat on the flood, keeping your back straight, and your chin pointing slightly upwards.
  2. Brings your hands to your lap, right hand over your left with thumb tips slightly touching.
  3. Keep your eyes partially closed, and leave a small space, about 1/10 open between your eyelashes and eyelids.
  4. Breath normally and gaze your eyes where they naturally fall in this position or looking at your nose.
  5. Visualize a white crystal rotating on an axis. If you have a hard time visualizing a crystal, try to imagine a white fog surrounding you. If that’s also difficult, bring up the memory of a familiar object that is white in color, such as clouds or the surf of waves and focus here with your effortless breathing.
  6. Continue maintaining this concentration state for 10-12 minutes.
  7. Lay in savasana, completely flat on your back with your eyes closed for 5-6 minutes.
  8. Journal about your experience or comment at the end of this article.


Affirmations are a powerful tool for deep mental and emotional transformation. By regularly stating positive affirmations, you effectively lay down new neural pathways in your brain, fostering the creation of positive neurotransmitters that reinforce feelings of well-being and satisfaction. This practice is rooted in the belief that by affirming what you desire, you acknowledge and accept the possibility of fulfilling your deepest needs and desires. 

When selecting affirmations, just make sure that the phrases resonate with you on a personal level. They should be statements that you find easy and natural to say out loud, as the act of vocalizing these affirmations significantly enhances their effectiveness. Here's a guide to help you get started, but remember, the most powerful affirmations are those that you personalize to reflect your own aspirations and emotional needs.

Overcome Blockages & Negative Thoughts

When you start diving into the crown chakra and engaging in meditation, especially when seeking to connect with higher frequencies and your higher consciousness, I want to be truthful and say that it is not uncommon to encounter what may feel like 'darker' energies. This experience can be unsettling, but it's important to recognize it as a part of the spiritual journey towards balance and self-awareness. Just like the ying-yang. In order to have the light, there has to be dark.

The presence of contrast—light and dark, ascent and descent—is a fundamental aspect of the universe. This duality is evident in all experiences, including your personal growth and spiritual practices. Encountering darker energies during meditation can sometimes reflect aspects of your own life and habits that are out of alignment for your highest good.

Common lifestyle factors such as overeating, smoking, drug use, unhealthy relationships, excessive use of social media, and other habits can manifest as these dark energies, revealing themselves as areas where healing and attention are needed. 

Just remember, working through these darker energies is a part of the spiritual path to discovering your true self. Each step you take towards healing and balance not only brings light into your own life but also allows you to share that light with the world around you. The journey may be challenging, but the growth and clarity that come from facing and integrating these aspects of yourself are invaluable.

  • Awesome buddy, mediation is indeed a state of mind, and for sure it is not putting much effort. Once this state is gained a few times,  I can testify that, it begins to self-create rhythms and have its effect on the people around us. Once it becomes a part of us, it then affects us in healthy ways through sleep and other activities. I love meditating and it has helped me to deal with so many challenges in life. What is your favorite part of meditation and how do you compare it to prayers?
