Congratulations! We’ve reached the crown chakra, the seventh and final one on this journey. The crown chakra is all about ascension and connection with something more than ourselves. The color associated with the crown chakra is white.
When the crown chakra is in alignment we can feel serenity, oneness, peaceful presence, and acceptance.
When the crown chakra is out of alignment we can feel anxious (obsessed with the future) and depressed (obsessed with the past). Headaches, dandruff, and other issues in scalp and brain areas can be physical manifestations of issues with the crown chakra.
Being incarnated as a human being is a real trip. Connecting with the first six chakras can massively improve our experiences as three-dimensional people who live in contrast, community, and time / space. When we have healthy relationships to our bodies, boundaries, and self-expressions, it’s possible to connect with higher power, other dimensions, and spiritual highs in massively satisfying ways through the crown chakra.
Building a solid foundation with the preceding six chakras helps us connect with the transcendent possibilities available to us through work with the crown chakra.

CROWN CHAKRA MEDITATION – It’s time to meditate, friends. If you’re new to this practice, here’s my very simple, two-minute mediation starter guide. Meditation can help you align with all of your chakras. When you’re feeling grounded, you can fly to great heights. This guided meditation through the chakras does just that:
TAP YOUR BRAIN & FEEL BETTER IMMEDIATELY – Gently pat the top of your head. This activates your pineal gland and chills your nervous system out. Repeat. Enjoy.
I’m gonna write way more about the pineal gland and tapping / EFT in the future. For the moment though, here’s a quickie description from Maktak Chia and Joyce Thom on the magical pineal gland:
The pineal gland is located in the center of the brain, behind and above the pituitary gland. Because the pineal is bathed in highly charged cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and has more blood flow per cubic volume than any other organ, it may well be the gland with the highest concentration of energy in the body. In addition to its high concentrations of CSF and blood, the pineal gland is also the dominant source of the body’s melatonin.
Melatonin is significant for its effects on our mood, immune function, circadian rhythms, and the quality and quantity of our sleep. Melatonin is known as an anti-aging and anti-stress agent because it both suppresses cortisol and is a powerful antioxidant.
GET STONED – Crown chakra crystals include white and clear rocks like quartz, selenite, opal, and howlite. Each of these stones has their own benefits and properties that can support your journey to connect with your higher self, higher power, and awareness of other dimensions.
One of the most exciting things to me about clear quartz crystals are that they can be programed with different “flavors” of energy. After clearing your stone with smoke, salt, or moonlight, you can charge a quartz up with a specific intention. Quartz crystals can work as allies for specific people, projects, and personal goals. During times when you feel especially loving, you can program a quartz with that vibration. Then, when you’re feeling out of alignment, you can grab a love-charged crystal and get dosed with positive energy.
CROWN CHAKRA VISION BOARD – Why do you want peace in your life? What are you building toward in this incarnation? Where do you see yourself in communion? Make a crown chakra vision board to actualize what you’re seeking in the realms of serenity, spiritual awareness, and ascension. Find images that represent these ephemeral desires to better orient yourself in those directions.
DROP YOUR BODY IN A FLOAT TANK – You’re here incarnated in a human body, which can be so great. That said, the crown chakra can be a gateway to trips and travels beyond 3D experience. Floating gives the body an opportunity to take a break — the water is body temperature, it’s 100% dark so there aren’t any visual distractions, there can be silence or a soundtrack of your choosing, and a huge ratio of epsom salts to water allows your body to float without any effort. In this state, your mind can shift into theta brain and it’s possible to journey up and out through the crown of your head on a trippy, floaty, cosmic adventure.

CLOSE ENCOUNTERS WITH ORGASMS OF THE THIRD KIND – In Urban Tantra, Barbara Carrellas explains that there are three kinds of orgasms — one is located in your genitals, the second kind can be felt all through your body, and the third type of orgasm feels like energy is spouting out of the top of your head through the crown chakra. Educate yourself and start practicing for orgasmic ascension!
CROWN CHAKRA MUSIC – Make a playlist of songs that encourage feelings of harmony, spiritual highs, and inter-dimensional travel. My crown chakra playlist is filled with songs that have the word “crown” in the lyrics, because literal art like that delights me.
