Sahasrara (Thousand petalled)
The Spiritual Chakra
The crown chakra is the seventh chakra. Located at the top of the head, it gives us access to higher states of consciousness as we open to what is beyond our personal preoccupations and visions. The function of the Crown chakra is driven by consciousness and gets us in touch with the universal.
The crown chakra is our center of knowledge as well as our connection to divinity, spirituality and everything in the universe, physical or otherwise.
Being spiritual is not necessarily being religious and religious people aren’t necessarily spiritual. Spirituality is knowing in your heart and soul that there is a higher power and that we are connected to it and everything around us. Spirituality is pure love and radiates to every aspect of ones life. It’s the understanding that you can grow within yourself and your world. That you have the power to change and that no one will ever reach perfection in our earthly form but that we are all perfect in our divine form, both infinite and magnificent.
