Silence is best for crown chakra activation, because it does not distract from spiritual practice. The sound of Om and deep, tonal sounds can also be healing music for Sahasrara because of their universal nature.
Most yoga asanas are useful for crown chakra balancing because of the meditative aspect. Slow practice that allows time for plenty of focus on the breath is ideal. This is not the time to push boundaries and strive to achieve difficult poses, but rather to work on mindfulness and meditation.
Using chakra stones such as Selenite, Clear Quartz, Amethyst and Diamond can also be an effective way to heal the crown chakra.
Aromatherapy for the crown chakra encompasses a wide range of scents. Flowery essential oils like jasmine, rose and lavender can soothe an overactive crown chakra, while more pungent essential oils like sandalwood, frankincense and myrrh can help stimulate an underactive or blocked Sahasrara.
The crown chakra’s elements are thought and light, so spending time in the sunlight is good for opening the crown chakra. Reading or doing puzzles outside on a sunny day is an easy way to help heal the crown chakra.
