7 – Crown Chakra



7th Chakra = Crown or Sahasrara Chakra



Sahasrara (Sanskrit: सहस्रार, IAST: Sahasrāra, English: “thousand-petaled”) or crown chakra is the seventh primary chakra, according to Hindu tradition. (source: wikipedia)

The Guru chakra of “All Knowing – Knowing Self”, that duality is illusion and the ‘other’ is seen within and hence ‘is’ an aspect of the Self. That one does not need to look outside of one self to know, see, hear, or be sacred, divine, enlightened or god-dess.  Every mineral, every planet, every aspect of nature as seen on Earth and the Cosmos is within our physical bodies and a higher spiritual level of consciousness.

Foods: Incense and smudging herbs like sage, copal, myrrh, frankincense, and juniper

Foods + Exercises Opening the Way to Higher Frequencies: Detox and Fasting using high energy, live, organic non-gmo whole foods such as alkaline greens (spinach, chard, kale, collards, dandelion greens, field greens, avocado, granny smith apples) and raw juicing, water fasting, meditation, yoga, qigong and pranayama (breath work)




The crown chakra is one of the higher chakras. It begins the mystical journey into higher frequencies of being. Attainment of one’s crown chakra opens up higher consciousness and oneness and divinity. It is a collective soul consciousness. A chakra of compassion and cooperation. Selfless service or Karma yoga.

According to Tantric philosophy, the seventh chakra is both a receiver and giver of energy and consciousness. It receives energy to sustain life and it gives back the personal energy to unite with the collective pool of consciousness.

It is the meeting point between finite (the body and the ego) and infinite (the universe and soul).

It is the place where time and timelessness intersect and where death and eternal life meet.

The thousand petal chakra embraces an attitude of gratitude for one’s life. (source: Chakra Anatomy

This is the seventh and most spiritual chakra. It encircles a being’s wisdom and being one with the universe. Sit cross-legged and lay your hand before your stomach. Let the little fingers point up and away from you, touching at their tops, and cross the rest of the fingers with the left thumb underneath the right, as shown in the picture above.
