We will start the chakra journey at the head this is the 7th chakra. The most powerful of all chakras ,it is called
‘ The Crown’ we visualise the crown chakra as white because it represents all the lower chakra colours combined. This is the chakra (or energy centre) that connects us to pure consciousness , in other words all is revealed once we can enter into the crown chakra whenever we desire.
It is only truly accessible once all the lower chakras are in balance. This is the ultimate reason for yoga practice.
The crown chakra is also known as ‘Sahasrara’, once all the other chakras are in balance ,the way into Sahasara is through meditation.
There are two poses used in yoga which help bring awareness to Sahasara, they are
1. Cross-legged seated mountain pose, while in this position we use the yogic breathe and visualise the breath traveling from the base chakra through to the crown chakra.
2. Headstand while visualising the white light at the crown.
When we take the time to come to yoga, we move our bodies to the beat of our breath , dissolving all disruptions to our energy channels or chakra pathways.
Synchronising breath with yoga is the body drawing the mind into the spirit.
This is known as Samadhi. (Pure consciousness or complete contentment and Bliss!)
