"I am complete and one with divine energy."
The 7th chakra is located at the VERY TOP OF THE HEAD, or slightly above they head sitting like a “crown” and radiating upwards. Sahasrara Chakra (translated as “thousand petal lotus”) gives us access to higher states of consciousness as we stimulate those nerves and open up to what is beyond our personal thoughts.
The Crown Chakra is primarily associated to the PITUITARY gland as well as the PINEAL gland and HYPOTHALAMUS. Because of its location, this chakra is also closely associated with the entire brain and nervous system. Note: Energetically, the Crown Chakra has a connection with the Root Chakra because they are both at the extremities of the chakra system. The pineal gland is also considered the primary link between your BRAIN and your SOUL.
The point of all this?? How can you benefit from this ancient knowledge?? Well, having an OPEN and HEALTHY Crown Chakra allows WISDOM to flowwwww into us. ✨ When the Crown Chakra is in balance we experience an ability to UNDERSTAND and LEARN new information easily. We make logical decisions easily and may have a strong sense of HUMANITARIANISM and DEVOTION. We feel OPEN MINDED and THOUGHTFUL and are more connected to our spiritual nature. We develop a trust in the DIVINE. BALANCE your crown chakra and get ready to get BLISSED OUT yogis!!
