Chakra 7: You are Divine!

The 7th chakra, Sahasrara (thousand-fold), resides at the crown of our head.  The image associated with this energy center is a lotus flower with one thousand petals, which is said to symbolize purity and spirituality.
 
This chakra synthesizes all the other chakras.  When we bring this chakra into balance we feel connected to the Divine source within and around us.  Meditation is probably the best way to tap into the 7th chakra; through meditation we work with observing our thoughts and thought patterns, and guiding the mind toward a more focused place, or at least a place where the mind isn’t as disturbed by the thoughts.
 
Here’s a simple meditation practice you can do anywhere, any time:
 
Find a comfortable seat. Sit on a blanket or chair, or even lie down – resting legs up on the wall can be a deliciously restorative pose to explore this meditation practice. 
 
If you are sitting, make sure your spine is easily floating skyward, not collapsed inward on itself.
 
 

  • Breathe and notice the flow of your breath in and out. Feel the rhythm of it. Even notice any pauses in between the breaths.
  • If you notice yourself trying to change or control the breath—making the breaths a certain length, creating pauses, even changing the pattern or where it lives—try and stop and let the breath be.
  • See if you can neither pull the breath in nor push it out—just let it flow naturally in and out.
  • Watch it like you would watch the ocean waves roll in and out—let it flow!
 
This is a great breath practice on those days when you feel like you are disconnected from and resisting what is in your life.
