The Seventh Chakra, Sahasrara or Crown Chakra is located at the crown of the head. It governs your thoughts and beliefs, it is the chakra of enlightenment. The color of this chakra is violet.
From Bodhi Yoga website:
Your Seventh Chakra rules the sealing connection between you to your Divine Source. There are more neuro-connections in your brain than stars in the universe and more cells in your body, than grains of sand on the planet; so who is bigger? When your “crown chakra”, the top of the head, is healthy, it can witness your Essential Truths in every other center of the body, right down to the cellular level. Issues in the Crown Chakra usually surface to help you learn that it is your attachments that can distract you from what’s most important. When your crown is open, healing occurs at quantum speed; it feels like coming home to the essence of who you really are, with Grace pulsating through you, witnessing to you your Divine paths, realized potential and infinite value.
The shadow of this chakra is attachment. The second of the Four Noble Truths of Buddhism says that the origin of suffering is attachment. Connecting with divine essence balances this chakra. Prayer, spiritual practices, fasting, chanting, meditation,
My affirmation for the 7th Chakra:
I am a child of God.
