Western science doesn’t provide enough evidence about physical manifestations of spiritual energy. Still, in eastern traditions, studies of the seven chakras and their alignments are very important. These studies have roots in the belief that only aligned and opened chakras allow for constant and free flow of prana or life energy through them. The traditional practices such as meditation, yoga or reiki, are all related to chakras and enhance the flow of energy.

How to tell if your crown chakra is blocked
If your crown chakra is blocked you can experience feelings of emotional distress, isolation and disconnection from other people and events. You may also feel quite as usual, only without feelings of enlightenment and spiritual connection. This is, in fact, quite normal.
The crown chakra can be fully opened most often through specific meditative or yogic exercises and often only at certain times. It thus requires an acquired set of skills and is not something you can expect to achieve over night.
