How to Meditate to Open Crown Chakra – Really Simple

The crown chakra, or Sahasrara as we call it in Sanskrit, is the seventh and highest chakra in our 7 chakra energy system. The crown chakra represents our connection to the divine, the universe, and our higher selves, serving as the bridge between our individual consciousness and the vast, universal consciousness.

What is Crown Chakra?

Being the top energy center, crown chakra is associated with the element of thought and the color violet. It governs our spiritual wisdom, enlightenment, and the realization of our true nature. 
This chakra symbolises detachment from illusion; an essential element in obtaining higher consciousness of the truth that one is all and all is one.

Where is Crown Chakra Located?

It is located either at or slightly above the top of the head. You can also feel the energy of this chakra emanating from the top of our head.

To feel its energy, just place your right hand slightly on above(1-2cm) top of your crown, and another hand on your heart, close your eyes, and start breathing slowly. Bring your attention towards your breath, simply doing this exercise, we start to align our energy system and what we experience is little warmth at the ends of this energy system, that means your root chakra and crown chakra.
