The Divine Crown Chakra
The crown chakra, also known as Sahasrara, meaning a “thousand petals”, is the last in the seven chakra systems. This chakra is located at the top of the crown of our head. It is associated with the colours purple and white. It represents our connection to the universe’s divine and cosmic energy.
Our Connection To The Cosmos
This chakra is known to spread outward from the top of our head, representing the point where we connect to divine energy. This chakra holds the possibilities of everything that lies beyond the limit of our body and mind.
As the last chakra, our highest sense of consciousness functions through this energy centre. Here is where we move from our individual self and inner wisdom to connect to the larger divine wisdom and purpose. It is the chakra responsible for spiritual enlightenment.
The Collective Spiritual Realm
This journey to enlightenment allows us to serve a purpose in the world, where we can receive satisfaction from our inner selves rather than worldly accumulations and goals. It helps us look past our ego’s decisions based on wanting continuation and fearing impermanence.
This journey of connecting with the divine provides a feeling of unity and a sense of oneness simultaneously. This chakra allows us to remember to experience true bliss and peace; the journey must be self-transcendental as opposed to our external world.
Most importantly, this chakra is in charge of the pineal gland, which controls your sleep and, essentially, your states of consciousness. This energy centre controls our brain and nervous system, controlling your perceptions about everything in the bodily experience.
To Balance The Crown
An imbalance in crown root chakra can show up as spiritual addiction, over-intellectualization, feeling disconnected from earthly matters, depression, neurological disorders, nerve pain, and thyroid and pineal gland disorders. This can be countered by using visualization to clear the blocked chakra, creating distance between your thoughts and physical body, meditation, educating yourself and expanding your worldview.
