I find when working with clients that many times their Crown Chakra needs balancing.  The following lovely meditation for balancing the Crown Chakra was introduced by Sue Windred.   This would be an excellent chakra meditation to record in your own voice, reading slowly and allowing for pauses where appropriate. (The author’s spaces below indicate pauses).

“Sit back comfortably      with your back straight,      take a deep breath      and breathe out all your tension.    Imagine yourself on a grassy patch      on top of a hill. Looking up    you see a beautiful rainbow      in the clear blue sky.     All the colors are clear    yet blending into each other.    As you gaze at the rainbow    you feel it coming towards you.     You watch     as it gets closer     until it is above your head.    Sitting there    you feel the colors absorbing in through your Crown Chakra.

Feel all the colors     absorbing     into all your chakras.     Sit for awhile     continue to take in all the colors.       When you are ready      open your eyes,      feeling relaxed     but alive.”

This chakra balancing meditation can be used whenever and as often as you like.


1.  Select the essential oil you want to use for this meditation.  Take off the lid and place several drops onto a folded tissue. Wave tissue gently under nostrils ensuring both sides of the nose take in the oil vibrations.  Don’t let the oil touch the skin.

3.  Take the energy you are breathing in, let it surround your physical body, and fill all of the invisible energy fields that you know make up the aura.  Continue until you think or can imagine that your energy fields are almost ‘buzzing’ with the energy.  Remove the tissue from under the nose, and just relax, allowing the process to settle.

4.  If you think that you need another oil, you can repeat this process.  Generally you won’t need more than two oils.
