You may have noticed that the Crown Chakra wasn’t associated with any of the 5 elements. This is because it cannot be classified and tied up with an element, as it is the encompassing Chakra. You can only achieve balance with the Crown Chakra when you have balanced all the five elements.

Now that you know how the chakra elements that you need to work on, you will be more equipped on your journey ahead. Life is indeed a balancing act. As the poet, Euripedes has said: The best and safest thing is to keep a balance in your life, acknowledge the great powers around us and in us. If you can do that and live that way, you are really a wise man.
