The chakra system is the hard wiring that enables development of all our physical, mental and emotional abilities. How does our Crown Chakra add to our capacity as spiritual beings in a human body?
Chakra System: How Crown Chakra Supports During Change
During times of change a healthy crown chakra can provide us with an experience of peace, a soft place to land beyond the rigors of human existence. It provides us with the knowing of our spirit which is beyond the impermanence of earthy life.
Crown Chakra Physical Characteristics
The Crown Chakra is located at the top of the head. It extends above the crown of the head upward toward an eighth chakra that sits about two feet above the 7th. (The eighth chakra is the energy center of divine love, of spiritual compassion and selflessness.) The seventh or Crown Chakra is our personal connection to this more other worldly spiritual energy.
Typically the Crown Chakra does not open more than 50% until we are 30-40 years of age.
Physically the major function of this chakra is as an entry point for life force; it governs: the Pituitary gland and the Cerebral Cortex of the brain.
Chakra System and Higher Consciousness
The seventh chakra connects individual awareness with infinite consciousness. It is here that we can develop the ability to go beyond sequential time and move into higher consciousness where we can achieve Psycho-spiritual integration. Bliss, unconditional joy and the ability to experience the Universal field of energy and consciousness are all experiences of a highly developed Crown Chakra.
A healthy crown chakra results in a person being able to perceive, analyze, and assimilate information in a useful way. We see intelligence, open-mindedness, and ability to question wisely. There is also a deep sense of spiritual connection, wisdom and Self-mastery in one who has a well-developed seventh chakra.
