Each of the chakras holds a form of consciousness. In the root we experience the densest materialization of energy, in the sacral we come to know the energy of emotion, in the solar plexus we engage with mental energy. As we progress upward in the chakra system we meet progressively less dense expressions of energy until we reach the crown where we must begin asking questions about consciousness itself.
Psychologically crown energy helps us to perceive the underlying order and meaning of things. Spiritually we experience (as opposed to believe) the deep knowing of all of creation as unified through the crown.
Unconsciously the energy flowing through this chakra is the wisdom of the body—consciously it is the intellect, mind and belief systems. Ultimately this chakra is our link with consciousness beyond reason, beyond the senses and beyond material world limitations—it is the universal consciousness that holds awareness of Divinity.
“To really turn our gaze of attention upon this miracle is to enter the endless unfolding petals of the lotus, and the true source of the Self.” Anodea Judith
