The crown chakra also known as Sahansrara represents our connection with the universe, divinity, and the connection among all things. This energy center is in the top center of the head, between the ears. The crown chakra is connected to the proper function of the ears, eyes, brain, pineal gland and the skin. Having an unbalanced crown chakra, depending on if it is underactive or overactive, can lead to spiritual obsessiveness or lack of spirituality, selfishness, lack of identity and purpose in life, depression, among other things. On the other hand, if is balanced, we feel in unity with the world, we understand that we are all interconnected, exhibit unselfish behavior, good mental health, feel fulfilled, and are more at peace. The crown chakra is usually represented by the color violet.
How to balance the crown chakra?
- Meditating on a regular basis helps balance the chakra and put our mind at peace.
- Practice activities where you get to place the needs of others first, where you take care of others, or offer help expecting nothing in return. The more you become aware of what other people go through, the more you value what you have. It is also important to get to know others to find common ground and develop genuine concern and stop acting selfishly. Remember, love is everything.

What makes you feel connected with the universe, what makes you happy and truly at peace?
