Seventh and final chakra

The last chakra is the sahasrara chakra found at the crown of the head.  The element it is associated with is boundlessness.  Essentially it is any and all elements, so much that we can't comprehend. It works to create connection with all things, spirituality, divinity and realization.  It is associated with the colors violet, gold or white.

When this chakra is balanced, one might feel free of stress-related disease, a free flow of energy, and goose bumps.  Also joyful attitude, faith, empathy, balanced spontaneity.

If this chakra is out of balance, one might find neglecting oneself and not caring for oneself, and stress-related disease.  There might be fear, second guessing, lack of emotion, feeling scattered and unfocused.

To bring this chakra back into balance, one can meditate on the mandala here. One can try breathing energy up and out the crown of the head, or chanting a silent om.  One could try fasting, crystal gazing, worship, volunteering, or stream of consciousness art/painting without expectation.  The asana one can try are savasana and headstand.

Love and light,

Sixth chakra

The sixth chakra is found between the eyebrows, sometimes called the third eye.  The sanskrit name for it is ajna.  The element it commands is light.  It is involved with intuition,, balance between Yin and Yang, all forms of thought, and understanding the world around us.  The color associated with this chakra is purple.

When the chakra is balanced one might find calm, a healthy brain and mental focus, pineal gland and pituitary health, good sleep, and psychic abilities.  Emotionally, one might see humility, joy, realistic expectations, excellent self-esteem, trust and faith.

When this chakra is unbalanced one could see brain and nervous system conditions, sight conditions, epilepsy, feeling out of touch with the body, headaches, and sleep disorders.  Additionally, one might see manic depression, confusion, suffering, indecisiveness, and feeling unsure of one's purpose.

To try to get this chakra back into balance one can try alternate nostril breathing, chanting "om" or meditating on the mandala here.  One could also try prayer, journaling, and self-reflection. The asanas one can use include child's pose with thumbs at the third eye, savasana, and candlestick.

Namaste my friends,
