Crown Chakra Meditation Technique

Free Guided Meditation Techniques E-book – Ch 12

Crown Chakra Meditation Technique will be the 12th entry in our ongoing and popular Free Online Guided Meditation Techniques E-book.  As it is also considered a Kundalini Yoga Kriya, I will include it in the Free Illustrated Kundalini Yoga Poses E-Book as well.

Rare Crown ChakraIn the article Kundalini Seven Chakra System I gave an overview of the Kundalini Seven Chakra Model and indicated that in general Kundalini Yoga does not look to directly open or activate a particular chakra.  Kundalini Yoga is designed to prepare the body for the greater flow of energy and focuses on clearing away blockages in the pathways instead.  As these blockages are cleared, energy flow increases and the chakras are subsequentially balanced and healed in the process. 

The meditation I am about to present here though does not follow this approach.  Not only does it directly activate the Crown Chakra (Seventh Chakra), but it is even more unusual, as the Crown Chakra (Sahasrara Chakra) is one which Kundalini Yoga seldom targets directly at all.  So, what does this all mean?  It means please don’t overdo this potent chakra meditation.  Start off slow and build up from there.

The Crown Chakra represents the spiritual dimension of life.  In that if it’s unbalanced you may not have any spiritual practice, or it could be such that you are a total fanatic.  A balanced Crown Chakra would mean frequent dips in Infinite Consciousness, as well as awareness and expression of the Unified Nature of Reality.  So if you feel you need to give this Chakra some love and attention, then this meditation is perfect for you.

Benefits of Crown Chakra Meditation Technique:

  1. Experience of Bliss.
  2. Detachment from the mundane and material world.
  3. Experience of Oneness and Divine Consciousness.
  4. Connection and guidance from within.
  5. Access to the energy of beyond.

Cautions for Practicing Crown Chakra Meditation Technique:

  • Do not overdo this meditation.  If you start to feel too spaced out or really out of touch with reality, back off this meditation and spend some time in nature.
  • Do not hold the eye position for longer than it is comfortable.  If the eyes tire, just release them and reapply the position when ready.

How to Do Crown Chakra Meditation:

  • Sit in any cross legged posture.  You can also do this meditation sitting on a chair.
  • Interlace your hands is shown in the illustrations above and place them above your head. Elbows should out to the sides.
  • Turn your eyes upwards such that you are trying to see the ceiling or sky right through the top of your head (Illustration #1).  You will close your eyes finally for this meditation, while looking up.  The illustration is just to show how the eyes are turned up.
  • Hold this hand and eye position and close your eyes (Illustration #3). 
  • Do long deep slow breathing and feel every inhalation saturating the top of the head with energy and light.  So to summarize.  Your eyes are closed, but you are looking upwards with your eyeballs as if trying to see through the top of your head.  You are doing long slow breathing for the duration of this meditation, and as you inhale, feel the top of the head being saturated with light and energy.  Remember if the eyes tire, release them and re-establish the eyes looking upwards when you are ready again, but continue with the breathing and visualization. 
  • To end, rub your palms together vigorously and gently place them over your eyes, allowing the warmth to sooth and comfort them.
  • Beginners can start with doing 1 minute, and build up from there to up to 11 minutes.  That is the time for the entire meditation.

    I have tried your technique for crown chakra meditation for 10 minutes since three days ago. To my surprise I felt a very strong cool breeze on my head. Some times I feel as if there are ants moving on my head . What does it mean? I tried to put only my right hand on my head but I also can feel the cool breeze. The same case with my left hand only without crossing both hand on the head. Does every one who practice your technique will have the same feeling of cool breeze on his head ? What does the feeling of cool breeze signify? Please kindly give me clarification. By the way, I am grateful for having been able to come across your article on your crown chakra meditation technique .

    Kind regards,

    Mr. Anmol,

    I have an extreme desire to help people and make our world a better place. But as of now, I am nowhere near ready to assist anyone. My mind has been broken and I, at one point, began a path of darkness. I was in a real bad way but have since changed myself to be a better person. I lived a life full of regrets and now wish only to assist our dying people and planet.

    I’ve read up on the Kundalini Awakening and I desire it so that I may help all those that I have hurt and more. But I fear that I cannot accomplish my goal within time. For everyday that goes on, people continue to suffer and I feel that I bear personal responsibility due to my past and my lack of power and knowledge. I cannot simply wait while others are hurt and even blind to all that goes on. I no longer simply desire the Kundalini Awakening but have come to need it’s gifts of knowledge, peace, and power. I pray that you may be able to assist me in my time of need.

    With Anticipation,

    Dear Darklon,

    This can happen due to intense concentration or due to strain. If it is due to the latter, then ease off the eye position and proceed slowly. In time it should be easier to do and hold.

      Don’t think the eye is the problem.
      It’s in the head🤴🏾. How do one go about activating the crown energy?

    I can look up with my eyes but my eyelids will not stay shut, they “flicker” in a way, they constantly and consistently open and close at a very fast rate. Is that okay?

    Hi Anmol
    Your site is very interesting and well presented. Thank you!
    I had a question about the light to be visualised in this crown chakra meditation. Should it be of any particular colour? White? Purple?
