Opening Your Crown Chakra
The crown chakra or Sahasara is located on the top of the head. It governs inner communication with our spiritual self. It allows for us to connect with the Universal Life Force which is dispersed through all seven chakras. It is the center of knowledge and enlightenment often being represented by a blooming lotus flower to express the evolution and growth of the spirit throughout a lifetime.
Before Attempting To Open Your Crown Chakra
The crown chakra is a very important chakra that helps the other six chakras stay open, however, it is just as important to note that you must balance your root chakra before attempting to balance your crown chakra as you need a good foundation to remain grounded. Be sure to work through all your chakras as well beginning with the root chakra and working to the crown chakra to help stimulate energy flow and harmony.
