The crown chakra, known in Sanskrit as Sahasrara, is the seventh chakra and is located at the top of the head. It is the gateway to spiritual wisdom. It also connects the individual to the wider universe, helping each person feel their connection to the universal energy.

Healing the crown chakra can take many forms. Meditation is one of the most effective methods for balancing the chakras. To open the crown chakra, it can help to visualize a brilliant white or violet light pouring into the top of your head, washing away any blockages. It can also help to visualize a white or violet lotus flower unfurling, because the symbol of the crown chakra is a lotus flower with 1,000 petals. Regular meditation or prayer is the most important factor in healing this chakra.
Chakra healing stones can help dissolve blockages and amplify healing energy. Diamond, quartz, amethyst and other white or purple stones are ideal for healing the crown chakra. These can be worn as jewelry or held during meditation and energy healing.
Regular yoga practice can also help heal this chakra. Specific yoga poses for the crown chakra include inverted asanas, such as supported headstand and shoulderstand. Practice slowly with a heavy focus on your breath. Spending time in Savasana is especially important when working on the crown chakra.
Reiki is very useful for resolving blockages in the crown chakra. Reiki practitioners focus the universal energy that runs through every being and help direct it where it is needed. This is especially useful for crown chakra issues because the chakra is so closely tied to that universal energy. Self-healing or working with a Reiki practitioner or other energy healer can be helpful.
