How To Unblock Open Crown Chakra

Crown chakra, also known as the “thousand-petaled lotus”, is the 7th energy center from the bottom, located at the top of your head. 

The main function of the crown chakra is to connect you with the Divine force and infinite source of healing energy through spirituality, self-realization, knowing, and enlightenment. 

You can think of your highest chakra as a receiver of consciousness from the Source, which keeps you connected with the Divine and your Higher Self. This chakra offers you a sense of awareness that there is a deeper significance and order in life, regulating all of creation.

One of the most important things you can do when working with your crown chakra is to commit to the path of absolute surrender to the higher power.

When you decide to embark on your own path of enlightenment and give up the myth of separation, your spirit will be lifted to the highest levels of awareness.

Now, let's have a look at some of my favorite healing methods to unblock your crown chakra and merge with the energy of the Universe.

Crown Chakra Sahasrara Chakra Symbol & Meaning


1. Crown Chakra Meditation

Mediation is the most important practice for unlocking the power of your crown chakra. It is a necessary habit to cultivate if you want to clear the mind, expand your awareness, and develop the ability to listen to your inner voiceI am sure that you are most likely familiar with the benefits of meditation, as many people talk about them quite a lot these days.

However, your crown chakra is directly correlated with your brain, and any meditative practice, which brings stillness to your mind will be very beneficial to your crown chakra. When your mind is still and calm, your brain waves begin to shift to the alpha state, and you begin to connect to the infinite source of information.

There are many different forms of meditation, such as:

  • Guided meditation
  • Mindfulness meditation
  • Concentration meditation
  • Active movement meditation (such as Tai Chi or Yoga)
  • Mantra meditation
  • Transcendental meditation

Pick the one you like the most, and make it a daily habit to quiet your mind and nourish your spirit.

2. Crown Chakra Silence Exercise

Whether you’re into meditation or not, spending some time in silence (alone or with your friend) is also a great way to cultivate deeper awareness and practice being present.

Intentional silence is actually an ancient, sacred practice, also known as 'Mauna'Practitioners of Mauna normally start by simply limiting their speech to an absolute minimum. Eventually, you can refrain from reading, writing, and minimize contact with others.

Before you start, make sure you eliminate all of the distractions from your environment and open yourself up to the power of MaunaThis is also a great exercise to do when you feel overwhelmed or stuck in life. Silence exercise will allow you to open up your mind to new ideas and inspiration.

3. Crown Chakra Visualization

Because your crown chakra is located right at the top of your head, it is not difficult to rest your awareness on that area and visualize it. The best way to do it is to envision a violet colored lotus right above your head and imagine it opening and expanding in all directions.

You can also imagine a ball of violet light spinning in a clockwise direction. At the same time, picture a bright, golden-white light coming through the opening funnel and filling up your entire body. 

This simple visualization method is very effective because when you think about your crown chakra and visualize it opening, it will begin to open.

4. Crown Chakra Affirmations

Crown chakra affirmations can be useful when working with your Sahasrara as they can help you to connect with your Higher Self and completely clear all of your ego identifications.

Try some of these powerful crown chakra affirmations. They can be used throughout the day or during your meditation to strengthen your 7th chakra: 

  • I am divine light.
  • I am at peace.
  • I am one with all that is.
  • I am infinite and boundless.
  • I see the divine light in everyone.
  • I listen to the wisdom of the universe.

5. Crown Chakra Yoga Poses

Some of the most effective yoga poses for crown chakra are postures that stimulate the energy and blood flow to your headSupported Headstand is one of my personal favorite yoga poses for the crown chakra, and I have been practicing it for many years.

However, if you suffer from a back or neck injury, I wouldn’t recommend it. You can substitute it for the Viparita Karani pose, which is probably the second-best pose for your crown chakra.

Let’s have a look at the complete list of the most effective yoga poses for your crown chakra:

  • Supported Headstand (Salamba Sirasana)
  • Legs Up The Wall pose (Viparita Karani)
  • Lotus pose (Padmasana)
  • Tree pose (Vrksasana)
  • Standing Prayer Backbend (Ardha Anuvittasana)
  • Rabbit Pose (Sasangasana)

    7. Crown Chakra Foods

    Crown chakra is the seat of universal consciousness and divine connection, so there are no specific foods that can resonate with its frequency. 

    Some of the best "foods" for your crown chakra are:

    • Sunlight
    • Clean water
    • Fresh air and spending your time in nature

    Crown chakra has a few important lessons when it comes to food and eating:

    • Recognize and acknowledge the food as a gift. You can include your own prayer (spiritual practice) before your meals.
    • Release your attachment to food and purify your body through fasting.
    • Understand that the quality of the food you consume is much important than the quantity.

    Crown Chakra Opening Symptoms

    Your crown chakra will start to open when you begin to trust more in Divine perfection. As a result, you will be able to experience a state of flow daily. Deeper faith that everything is unfolding exactly as it should and you are exactly where you need to be in life is one of the major symptoms of your crown chakra opening.

    When your crown chakra is opening, its appearance in your auric field will start to look like a haloMany paintings and drawings of spiritual beings very often portray them with a halo effect around their head. 

    As you progress through your spiritual awakening, process the hue of your crown chakra starts to shift from a violet to a bright, white colorUltimately, a healthy and balanced crown chakra will allow you to open yourself up to the insights from higher dimensional realities and reach your highest potential.

    Keep in mind that when you say yes to the evolution of your soul, you also say yes to collective evolution throughout the world. Crown chakra's most important teaching is that we are all ONE.

    When you decide to embark on your own path of enlightenment and give up the myth of separation, your spirit will be lifted to the highest levels of awareness.
