The Sanskrit name for the crown chakra is Sahasrara which means “thousand-petaled”.

The crown chakra connects you to the divine and your higher self, this is where you achieve a sense of universal consciousness.

The crown chakra is located at the top of the head. It is associated with the element of thought and its color is violet and white (which is the inclusion of all colors).

The crown chakra includes all energies of body, mind, and spirit.

Yoga philosophy has considered Sahasrara to be the seat of enlightenment.

When your Sahasrara is balanced you trust the Divine and have the feeling of oneness with the Universe. Feeling connected to source energy you live a blissful life: full of love, compassion and kindness to yourself and all other beings.

You are able to live in the present moment, without dwelling in the past or creating stressful scenarios of the future. You know you are guided by the Divine.

When your crown chakra is unbalanced, you are disconnected from the divine. You are skeptical about spiritual realm. You might be focusing entirely on your individual physical needs without paying attention to anyone else’s well-being. You and your well-being are your whole universe. Meeting your egoistic needs is your life’s purpose.

There are many methods to balance and open your crown chakra and using crystals is one of them.

The six crystals below can be very useful in the opening process of your Sahasrara.
