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.
