The Universal Chakra is coloured pearly white and directs the essence of Universal being. Here, we experience a merging of polarities between the Divin masculine and Divine feminine energies. When the Universal Chakra is aligned, your light being is activated in harmony with your physical being, resulting in perfect balance within the universe. The Universal Chakra is the gateway to the abundant flow of love and the expanse of creation. It's about achieving Pure Awareness. The Universal Chakra is pivotal in awakening spiritual evolution among the physical realm in the Universe. This chakra represents the completeness of your being. As the Universal Chakra is activated, you feel in close alignment to the Universe and all that is and all that ever was, connecting with the akashic records. Paving the Divine alignment of connection between you with and the Divine light. The Universal Chakra is the infinite flow of conception of complete awareness. Bring your Universal Chakra into alignment with your higher self for Divine healing, balance, and full access to the Divinity of your soul. This will provide the entrance to abundant levels of access to travel within the higher realms of spirit. When you balance your Universal Chakra, you will access reincarnation and past life experiences.

In the vast realm of spiritual and holistic practices, the concept of chakras holds a significant place. As we have discussed in our previous blogs, there are seven main chakras that align with the spine, each associated with specific energies and aspects of our being. Here we build on that with the 3rd chakra to sit above the crown chakra.



The Universal Chakra is associated with the transmission of Divine light and cosmic energy. By opening and aligning this chakra, individuals may experience a heightened sense of spiritual awareness, tapping into Universal knowledge and guidance. Practices such as meditation, visualisation, and energy healing are often employed to activate and balance the Universal Chakra.


Achieving balance in the Universal Chakra will bring a sense of inner peace, clarity, and alignment with your life purpose. Balancing this chakra involves acknowledging and releasing any blockages or negative energies that may impede the flow of Universal wisdom. Techniques such as Reiki, crystal healing, and sound therapy are commonly used to restore harmony to the Universal Chakra.


The Universal Chakra does not operate in isolation but is intricately connected to the traditional seven physical chakras - Crown, Third Eye, Throat, Heart, Solar Plexus, Sacral and Root Chakras.

To read our previous posts of the 7 chakras click here.

A harmonious interplay between the Universal Chakra and the other energy centres is thought to result in a more profound and balanced spiritual experience. Practices that focus on the physical and those chakras which sit outside of the physical body aim to create a unified and integrated energy system.


Activating the Universal Chakra will bring a myriad of benefits, including heightened intuition, a deeper connection to the Divine, and a greater sense of purpose. Individuals may also experience an expanded consciousness, allowing them to see beyond the limitations of the physical world.

Integrating Universal Chakra practices into daily life involves commitment to a transformative journey. This may involve mindfulness exercises, energy work, and spiritual rituals that nurture the connection between the individual and the cosmos. In this blog we will take a deep dive into ways you can incorporate some of these practices into your everyday living. Consistency and mindful practices with intention are key to reaping the full rewards of Universal Chakra activation.


Crystals and gemstones have long been revered for their energetic properties, and when it comes to the Universal Chakra, they play a vital role. Stones like selenite, moldavite, and clear quartz are believed to enhance the connection to the Divine, facilitating the flow of cosmic energy. Exploring the unique vibrations of these crystals can amplify the benefits of Universal Chakra practices.

Angelite Properties & Use

Angelite is a soothing, gentle crystal with a light blue hue. It is often associated with Divine communication, making it a powerful ally for activating the Universal Chakra. This crystal is believed to enhance spiritual awareness, facilitate angelic connections, and promote a sense of calm and inner peace.

Meditation - Hold an Angelite crystal in your hand or place it on your forehead if lying down during meditation to open up the Universal Chakra and invite higher guidance.

Wear as Jewellery - Wear Angelite jewellery, such as a pendant, necklace or earrings, to keep its energy close to the throat and crown chakras, aiding in communication with higher realms.

Placement - Keep Angelite in your living space or on your bedside table to create a serene and spiritually charged environment.

Herkimer Diamond Properties & Use

Known as the "attunement stone," Herkimer Diamond is a type of double-terminated quartz crystal found in Herkimer County, New York. It is revered for its high vibrational frequency and clarity, making it an excellent tool for spiritual attunement and connection.

Meditation Focus - Hold a Herkimer Diamond in your hand or place it on your third eye during meditation to amplify your connection to higher consciousness.

Jewellery - Wear Herkimer Diamond jewellery to keep its energy close to your energy field in your bra, pocket or as earrings to promote clarity and spiritual insight throughout the day. Place a piece in a gauze bag and carry in your bra or pocket.

Grids and Layouts - Create a crystal grid layout with Herkimer Diamonds to enhance the energy flow in your sacred space, fostering alignment with the other crystals in your grid.

Apophyllite Properties & Use

Apophyllite is a high-vibration crystal that comes in various colours, including clear, green, and peach. It is often associated with spiritual awakening, inner peace, and connection to higher realms. Apophyllite is also wonderful for facilitating communication with angels and spirit guides.

Meditation Aid - Place Apophyllite at your crown or above your head during meditation if you are lying down. Hold in your hands at your lap if sitting to enhance your connection to the Universal Chakra and facilitate communication with higher beings and entities.

Dreamwork - Keep Apophyllite by your bedside to encourage vivid dreams and astral travel, promoting spiritual exploration during sleep.

Crystal Elixir - Create a crystal elixir by placing a clean piece of Apophyllite in water under the moon or sunlight and then sip the infused water to attune your energy to higher frequencies.

Azurite Properties & Use

Azurite is a deep blue crystal known for its association with the third eye chakra up to the higher chakras, and higher states of consciousness. It is believed to enhance intuition, psychic abilities, and spiritual insight. Azurite is often used to stimulate the flow of energy between the third eye and Gateway Chakras.

Third Eye Activation - Place Azurite on your forehead during meditation where you are able, particularly if lying down to activate and open the channel to the Universal Chakra.

Visualisation - Hold Azurite while practicing visualisation exercises to enhance your ability to receive insights and guidance from higher realms.

Intuitive Development - Carry Azurite with you throughout the day to encourage intuitive insights and deepen your connection to Universal wisdom. Always use the crystal with intention, programming it for the specific use you are manifesting.


Regularly cleanse these crystals to ensure their energy remains pure and aligned. My favourite methods are smudging with sage or palo santo, placing them in the sunlight or under the moonlight, using singing bowls, burying in the ground and water clearing techniques.

Set clear intentions for your crystals, expressing your desire to activate and align with the Universal Chakra. This enhances their efficacy in supporting your spiritual journey.

Combining Energies

Experiment with using these crystals together in meditation or crystal grids to amplify their energies and create a synergistic effect for Universal Chakra activation.

Remember that each individual may resonate differently with crystals, so trust your intuition when selecting and working with these powerful tools for spiritual growth and connection.


Meditation serves as a powerful tool for balancing and aligning the Universal Chakra. By turning inward and focusing on the energy above the crown, individuals can create a sacred space for connection with the cosmic realm.

Guided meditations specifically designed for the Universal Chakra can aid in opening this energy centre and promoting a sense of spiritual harmony.

In the stage of the meditation where you move into pure Awareness of Universal Energy, the

process involves a profound visualisation to tap into the higher realms of consciousness.

Below is a 7 Chakras Healing Music | Full Body Cleansing | 20 Minutes Full Chakra Balance & Alignment. In this video, we will spend around 3 minutes on each chakra. This is a quick chakra alignment you can do in 20 minutes. Perfect for your lunch or tea break or when you are after short and regular alignments.

Begin by creating a mental canvas in your mind's eye, picturing a radiant, pure white or violet light suspended above you. This luminous glow symbolises the Universal energy that intricately interconnects with every living entity in the cosmos.

As you immerse yourself in this visualisation, envision the vibrant light descending gracefully, like gentle rays of sunlight breaking through a cloudy sky. Picture this ethereal glow enveloping you in a cocoon of warmth and love.

Sensitise your awareness to the subtle vibrations of this energy as it permeates the space around you, gradually bathing you in its luminosity.

To deepen the experience, focus on your breath. Inhale deeply, drawing in the luminous light with each breath, and exhale, allowing it to settle within you. Feel the energy penetrating every cell, bringing a harmonious balance to your entire being.

Embrace the sensation of interconnectedness with theUniversal flow, fostering a profound sense of unity with the cosmic energy that binds all existence.

Through this visualisation, you open yourself to the expansive wisdom and love present in the universe, fostering a connection that transcends the boundaries of the physical self. As you engage with this meditation, allow the visualisation to unfold naturally, tuning into the subtle nuances of the light's transformative presence.

Above is a link to a YouTube video for White & Brown Noise. White noise contains all of the frequencies which are interconnected and combining the higher frequencies of white noise and the lower frequencies of brown noise. Brown noise is a broadband sound which when using the lower frequencies, creates a low-pitched bass noise. This can sound like the air-conditioning, strong wind or the inside of an aeroplane (without the crying children). It also carries the lower frequency sounds of the ocean, without the highs and lows of the waves crashing.

The benefits of listening to white and brown noise:

๐ŸŒฌ Masks external sounds โ€“ sleep and relaxation aid ๐ŸŒฌ Manages Tinnitus โ€“ breaks through and evens out the higher pitches ๐ŸŒฌ Increased concentration โ€“ studying and learning ๐ŸŒฌ ADHD - assists to quiet the brain ๐ŸŒฌ Increases reading comprehension and hyper focus ๐ŸŒฌ Meditation background sound, balances thought patterns ๐ŸŒฌ Reduction in anxiety and stress ๐ŸŒฌ Augmented brain function โ€“ reset stimulation.

Aromatherapy and essential oils can be powerful allies in Universal Chakra work. Scents like frankincense, angelica, and juniper are believed to elevate spiritual awareness and promote a sense of transcendence. Incorporating these essential oils into diffusers, massage oils, or personal rituals can enhance the vibrational frequency of the Universal Chakra.

Sandalwood (Santalum album)

Benefits & Use

Sandalwood essential oil is renowned for its grounding and calming properties. It promotes mental clarity, reduces anxiety, and has skin-nourishing qualities.

Add a few drops to a carrier oil and apply to the wrists or back of the neck for relaxation. Diffuse in your space for a soothing atmosphere during meditation or yoga. Put a few drops onto an eye pillow when lying down.

Angelica (Angelica archangelica)

Benefits & Use

Angelica essential oil is known for its balancing effects on emotions. It can provide a sense of protection and spiritual support.

Incorporating these oils into your routine can enhance your well-being through their aromatic and therapeutic qualities.


Yoga, with its holistic approach to physical and spiritual well-being, offers specific asanas (postures) to activate and balance the Universal Chakra. Poses that involve reaching upwards, such as tree pose and mountain pose, help channel energy into the higher realms. Combining breathwork with these asanas enhances the overall effectiveness of the practice.

Lotus Pose (Padmasana)

How to do it

Sit on the floor with your legs extended. Cross your legs, placing each foot on the opposite thigh. Keep your spine straight, hands on your knees or in a mudra position.

Lotus pose promotes good posture, calms the mind, and strengthens the ankles and knees. It is known for enhancing flexibility in the hips and promoting a meditative state.

Headstand (Sirsasana)

How to do it

For more experienced yogiโ€™s, start on your hands and knees, interlace your fingers and place the crown of your head on the mat. Lift your hips, straighten your legs, and walk your feet towards your head.

Headstand increases blood flow to the brain, improves focus and concentration, and strengthens the shoulders and core. It is considered an inversion that promotes a sense of rejuvenation.

Corpse Pose (Savasana)

How to do it

Lie on your back, legs extended, arms by your sides with palms facing up. Close your eyes, relax your entire body, and focus on your breath.

Savasana is a pose of total relaxation and integration. It reduces stress, calms the nervous system, and allows the body and mind to absorb the benefits of the preceding asanas. It promotes a deep sense of peace and rejuvenation.

Tree Pose with Lotus Flower (Vrksasana with Padma Mudra)

How to do it - Start in Tree Pose (standing weight on one leg), then bring your hands into Padma Mudra, forming a lotus flower shape with your hands in front of your heart. Slowly begin to move the lotus up above the head to radiate energies upwards towards the luminous Universal Chakra.

This variation enhances balance, concentration, and the connection between the mind and body. It symbolises the growth and blossoming of the lotus within.

Incorporating these yoga asanas into your practice can contribute to physical strength, mental clarity, and overall well-being, aligning the body, mind, and spirit. Always practice with mindfulness and, if needed, seek guidance from a qualified yoga instructor for an advanced pose such as headstand.


Reiki and other energy healing modalities can be tailored to focus on the Universal Chakra. As a practitioner, I channel love and light healing energy to clear blockages, restore balance, and activate this transcendent energy centre. Generally, the chakras above the crown chakra will be worked on together, rather an as individual chakraโ€™s.

Distance healing sessions or in-person treatments can be beneficial for those seeking to harmonise their connection with Universal energies.

Universal Chakra Reiki Serene Valley Holistic Therapies

The Essence of Reiki

Reiki, meaning "Universal life energy" in Japanese, operates on the principle that there is a Universal energy that flows through all living things. As a Reiki Master, I am able to tap into this energy as a conduit, allowing it to flow through my hands to the recipient. This gentle, non-invasive technique is available to everyone and through practiced intention, you may learn to focus energetic healing on yourself and others.

The Reiki Session

In my practice, a Reiki session begins with you lying down, fully dressed, in our serene Balinese studio setting. As I work through the lower chakras, with the life force energy moving through the hands above your physical body, starting from your earth star chakra and working along the energy centres up to the crown chakra. To read our Earth Star Chakra Blog click here.

As the Universal life force energy flows through, the energy is then taken up along the higher chakraโ€™s fostering a connection with the Universal Chakra.

Balancing the Energy Centres

The Universal Chakra, is considered the seat of spiritual enlightenment and cosmic awareness. By addressing the balance of the primary chakras first, Reiki prepares the energetic pathways for the opening and activation of the Universal Chakra. As the energy flows upward, any blockages or disturbances in the energy field are gently released, allowing for a more profound connection to the Universal life force.

Benefits of Universal Chakra Alignment with Reiki

Spiritual Awakening

Opening the Universal Chakra is believed to lead to heightened spiritual awareness and a deeper connection to Universal truths.

Enhanced Intuition

A balanced Universal Chakra is associated with heightened intuition and a greater sense of inner knowing.

Transcendent Healing

Reiki's Universal energy facilitates healing on a holistic level, addressing physical, emotional, and spiritual imbalances.

Inner Peace and Clarity

The harmonising of the Universal Chakra brings a sense of inner peace, clarity, and a profound understanding of one's place in the vast tapestry of the universe.

Utilising Reiki for the Universal Chakra is a transformative journey toward spiritual harmony. As the gentle energy flows through the chakras, clearing blockages and aligning the energy centres, you may experience a profound sense of oneness with the Universal life force. In this sacred life force energy, Reiki becomes a pathway to the exploration of higher consciousness, inviting individuals to connect with the limitless and eternal essence of the universe.


Journaling serves as a reflective practice to deepen one's understanding of the Universal Chakra journey. Writing down thoughts, feelings, and experiences related to spiritual growth can help identify patterns, track progress, and set intentions for further alignment. The process of journaling becomes a sacred act of self-discovery and conscious evolution.

Incorporating these diverse practices into your spiritual routine can create a holistic approach to Universal Chakra balancing and alignment. Whether through crystals, meditation, or energy healing, each method contributes to the elevation of consciousness and the harmonious connection between the individual soul and the Universal energies that surround us.

Automatic Writing

Automatic writing, also known as psychography, is a powerful technique that taps into your subconscious mind to receive guidance, insights, and information. When combined with a focus on the Universal Chakra system, it can become a spiritually enriching experience.

Prepare Your Writing Space

Have a pen and paper or a dedicated journal ready. Choose a writing instrument that feels comfortable in your hand. Eliminate distractions and consider lighting a candle or burning incense to enhance the spiritual atmosphere.

Set the Intention

Begin by creating a sacred and peaceful space for your practice. Sit in a comfortable position, take a few deep breaths, and set a clear intention for your session. Focus on opening and aligning your Universal Chakra to receive guidance from higher sources.

Ground Yourself

Before diving into automatic writing, ground yourself to establish a strong connection with the Earth's energy. Visualise roots extending from your spine into the Earth, anchoring you securely. This grounding ensures a balanced flow of energy during your practice.

Activate the Universal Chakra

Envision a brilliant white or violet light above your head, representing the Universal Chakra. Imagine this light descending and merging along the Spirit, Soul and Crown chakras, located at the top of your head. Feel the energy flowing down through your body, connecting you to the Universal consciousness.

Enter a Meditative State

Close your eyes and enter a meditative state. Focus on your breath, allowing any thoughts to drift away. As you breathe in and out, let go of tension and become receptive to the energy flowing through your Universal Chakra.

Call on Higher Guidance

Call upon higher beings, Archangel Metatron (see his guidance above), angels, spirit guides, and your higher self to assist and guide you during the automatic writing session. Clearly state your intention to receive insights and wisdom from the Universal Chakra.

Begin Writing

With your eyes closed, let your hand move freely across the paper. Release any attachment to grammar, spelling, or coherent sentences. Allow the information to flow naturally from your subconscious mind, guided by the energy of the Universal Chakra.

Trust the Process

Do not censor or judge the content as it emerges on the page. Trust that the information you receive is valuable and meaningful. Your conscious mind may not fully understand the messages at first, however the patterns and insights will become clearer.

Reflect and Interpret

Once you feel the flow of information has subsided, take a moment to read through what you've written. Reflect on the messages and symbols that emerged. Consider the guidance in the context of your life and spiritual journey.

Express Gratitude

Conclude your automatic writing session by expressing gratitude to the higher beings, Archangel Metatron, spirit guides, and the Universal Chakra for their guidance. Take a moment to ground yourself again and slowly return to your normal awareness.

Automatic writing for the Universal Chakra is a deeply personal and transformative practice. Consistent engagement with this technique can lead to increased intuition, spiritual growth, and a profound connection to Universal consciousness. Remember to approach the process with an open heart, trust in the guidance you receive, and honour the wisdom of the Universal Chakra.
