Crown Chakra: Access to Higher States of Consciousness

Updated: Mar 4, 2022

Our seventh chakra, Crown Chakra, in Sanskrit is Sahasrara Chakra. It is associated with the thousand petal lotus. The Sanskrit name Sahasrara means thousand petals and is above the head. The Crown Chakra is also associated with the pineal and pituitary glands (which some sources also associate with the Third Eye or Brow Chakra). The Crown Chakra is associated with our connection to our higher self where our spirituality, enlightenment, inner wisdom, and connection to the guidance of the cosmos/universe all come together. When these energies unite, the sensory experience is bliss. The aspects of this experience are:

  • Grace

  • Serenity

  • Union or oneness with the universe and everything in it

  • Reaching self-actualization or fulfillment and a connection to the divine

  • Sourcing the energy and guidance of angels, God, and the universe

  • Realizing that you are a soul that is in a body and not a human with a soul

Location of the Crown Chakra:

It's associated with the fontanelle which is the soft spot on the skull of a baby. When the soft spot closes, the infinite universe and super consciousness is locked in. For many of us, our ego and our personality take over and our connection to the infinite universe fades. (source: The Chakra Bible by Patricia Mercier, published by Sterling NY 2007)
