Crown Chakra (Sahasrara)


Crown chakra (Sahasrara)

The seventh chakra rests at the top of the head—just above the apex of the spinal cord, the brain—where it serves as a conduit between you and heaven. This chakra represents the totality of things: complete stillness, all knowledge, utter bliss, cosmic unity, the white light of all colors as they come together. Enlist the vibrational energy of a violet amethyst or clear crystal mala when you meditate, or one made of humble bodhi seeds, fruit of the tree under which an ordinary man became the Buddha.
