Sanskrit Name for the Crown Chakra is Sahasrara
Crown Chakra Color is Purple, Violet, and White
The crown chakra is the center of spirituality, divine wisdom, imagination, awareness, optimism, and connection to your higher self and the universe. This chakra affects the six energy systems below it, and practically your entire being. When in balance it provides feelings of calmness, joy, and deep peace about being right where you need to be. You readily see the beauty and divinity in all things. The crown chakra affects the health of our brains, and therefore our entire mental, physical, and spiritual health.
The seventh chakra starts at the top of the head and hovers just above it.

How to Balance the Crown Chakra
Sit in a quiet place and breathe in deeply. Imagine a glowing deep purple colored tube of light entering the top of your head. This tube transforms into light violet and then explodes into a brilliant white light. Imagine that it is coming from the power of the universe or as a higher power. When you breathe out, push out the sound ‘Ahhh’.
As you continue this breathing imagine sending healing energy throughout your brain, descending throughout your entire nervous system, and then energizing every atom of your body. All the stress leaves your body and you become lighter and lighter. You feel a sense of pure joy and oneness with the power of the universe or God. Any pain you may have had is ascending through this tube of light.
Instead of chanting, intently listen to your breathing.
