12 Ways to open your Crown Chakra or Sahasrara Chakra
The crown chakra is the seventh and last of the 7 main chakras . He is also known as Sahasrara in Sanskrit.
It is represented by the color purple (but some see it as bright white) and relates to the divine , with higher thought , unity , and knowledge .
The crown chakra is located right at the top of the skull. It turns clockwise. To visualize your 7th chakra, you can visualize a purple ball (or white, choose the color that resonates the most with you) , on the top of your skull, turn clockwise, and a kind cone climb to the sky. The entry and exit of energy from this chakra is effected by this single cone, unlike the other chakras which are made up of 2 cones, one on the front (belly side – to receive the energies) and one at the back. (back side – where the energy comes out).

HOW TO How to Open your Crown Chakra
1. POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS
Repeat to yourself at least once a day, and for a minimum of 21 days, positive affirmations related to the crown chakra such as the following: “I trust the universe” – “I am protected and guided” – “I am infinite and without limits “ . Depending on the imbalances in your chakra, create the affirmations that are right for you.
2. THE SACRED FREQUENCIES
Sacred frequencies are particular frequencies that influence our energy bodies. The sacred frequency 963 Hertz is the sacred frequency directly influencing the energy of our crown chakra. You just have to start a recording of the frequency 963 Hertz, while you meditate, or quite simply while you cook, play sports … It does not matter! You will find various recordings of this frequency online.
3. ESSENTIAL OILS
In many cultures, it is said that plants have a soul… One thing is certain, the vibration of plants is a pure and very high vibration, so let’s not deprive ourselves of it! All you need to do is place a few drops of the essential oil on your two wrists, and rub them against each other for a few minutes. (be careful, never put pure essential oil directly on your skin, diluted first with vegetable oil). Because the skin on our wrists is very thin, the oil will be absorbed into your body more quickly. You can use lavender essential oil, or find crown chakra-specific essential oil blends on the market.
The best way to harmonize your crown chakra is precisely not to eat. Fasting brings clarity of mind, which makes it easier for us to connect with the divine.
5. THE CRYSTALS
The crystals all carry a very particular frequency, very high and very pure. Surrounding yourself with crystals in relation to the vibration of the crown chakra can then bring it the vibrations it needs to harmonize.
6. MEDITATE IN SILENCE
Meditation is a great way to connect with the divine, with our higher selves. The more time we spend in silence, the easier it is to observe our thoughts, to detach from them, and therefore to calm and free our mind, to bring us closer to our divinity.
7. THE MUDRAS
Mudras put your two hands in contact, with certain postures relating certain specific points of your fingers. Each finger has its function and its power within our body. When the fingers touch each other, the “nadis” (subtle energy channels) are connected and particular energetic vibrations are activated. Learn about the mudras corresponding to the crown chakra, and use them during your meditation for example.
Yoga is known to be a very good exercise for relaxation, but it is also a powerful practice to better circulate energy in our body, and therefore activate certain meridians and chakras whose energies were blocked. Learn about the postures of Yoga in relation to the crown chakra, and take a few minutes a day to perform them.
09. TAKE A SALT BATH
The salt bath is a great way to purify ourselves and cleanse any negative energies that could weigh down our crown chakra and make our connection to the divine more difficult. Every now and then take a good bath and add a little salt to it.
10. ENERGY CARE
The energy treatments are the most effective way to cleanse and balance the chakras. Following an energetic treatment, your chakras will be harmonized, but it will however be necessary to continue to maintain them so that they keep this alignment.
Foods to unblock your Crown Chakra
The best way to harmonize your crown chakra is precisely not to eat. The fasting brings a certain clarity of mind , which allows us to connect to divine more easily. Instead of eating food, feed yourself on the energies of nature , get outside for the fresh air, spend time in nature, spend time in the sun, and drink plenty of water.
