Crown Chakra

Sanskrit: Sahasrara
Color: Violet, white
Location: Crown of head, brain, nervous system
Element: Thought

The Crown Chakra is located at the top of the head and is associated with our divine wisdom and purpose, spiritual center, enlightenment, and obtaining a state of bliss/higher consciousness.


If blocked or unbalanced, one can feel unimportant, unhappy, bored, experience a lack of focus, confusion, apathy, and may be unable to learn or comprehend.

If unblocked or running smoothly, one will see their true nature and purpose, inner direction, and integration/unity with the omnipresent being.
