Crown Chakra: Guide to the Seventh Chakra

    The seventh chakra is the crown chakra or the thousand-petal lotus. The crown chakra acts as the operating system of the chakras and is located at the top of the head.  

    Chakras are “Wheels” that refer to the energy field in our human body. 

    Your energy field is a reflection of your physical, emotional and spiritual conditions and it is extremely sensitive. When you suffer from disease and sickness, you develop blockages in your energy field.

    The Crown Chakra

    The Crown Chakra is the seventh of seven chakras in the human body. It is the highest chakra and is often referred to as the thousand petal lotus.

    The Crown Chakra relates to consciousness and awareness. It is our connection to the world we don’t see – a space less place of all-knowing, wisdom, higher self and divine connection. 


    Physical Location: On top of the head

    Colour: Violet

    Element: Thought

    A free-flowing crown chakra helps you attain spiritual connection. 

    Specifically, a balanced crown chakra determines how excited you feel, how much motivation you have to achieve your goals, resolution in finding your own peace and how you perceive the world around you. 

    A balanced crown chakra helps the entrepreneur get the universal energy to achieve his or her goals. 

    Symptoms of a blocked Crown Chakra

    When the crown chakra is blocked, you may suffer from a disconnection with your spiritual side, leading to habits which are more self-destructing and further veer you away from your spiritual alignment. 

    Other symptoms include confusion about yourself and your goal, chronic headaches, exhaustion. Depression, skin issues and sensitivity to light and sound are other symptoms.  

    How to balance and activate your Crown Chakra


    Meditation can help restore balance and a flow of energy through your crown chakra.

    Try guided meditation to help channel energy through your body and through your chakras to balance your heart chakra. 


    Affirmations can be helpful in unblocking stale energy causing stagnation in the flow of your crown chakra. Reciting the following may help:

    • I am capable of loving divine energy 
    • I am an extension of the universe 
    • I am related to my higher self 
    • I am perfect and accept the way god made me
    • I am related to the purpose of my soul.
