You’ve probably heard about chakras, the seven wheels of energy in the body that start at the crown of your head, and travel down the body to the base of your spine. When spinning properly, each chakra allows energy to flow through the body. If these wheels of energy become blocked by stress, anxiety or emotional upheaval, your well-being can suffer. The seventh chakra, called sahasrara, is located at the crown of the head. “Sahasrara” means “thousand-petaled” and represents a thousand-petaled lotus flower.
7th Chakra’s Natural Element: Thought
This energy center is associated with the element of thought, connection to spirit, universal consciousness, enlightenment, wisdom, unity and self-knowledge.
Life Motif of the Crown Chakra
Working with this chakra indicates an interest in a higher purpose and an elevated way of being. You are ready to let go of misunderstandings about who you are and why you are here.
Signs of Blocked Sahasrara Energy
Complications that come from this chakra can be confusion, imbalance, a lack of connection to the manifest world, unfocused, hyper spiritualization (a.k.a. too much meditation not enough doing laundry) and an inability to function practically.
Energetic Benefits of Aligning the Crown Chakra
Working toward enlightenment is a worthy endeavor for anyone. This is the gateway to super-consciousness where it is no longer possible to experience yourself as separate from anything or anyone.
