The crown chakra

The crown chakra gives us access to higher states of consciousness as we open to what is beyond our personal preoccupations and visions. Its name in Sanskrit a”Sahaswara” means the “thousand petal lotus” chakra. It is the center of enlightenment and our spiritual connection to our higher selves. When aligned, the realizations that occur within you are said to be along the lines of pure awareness, consciousness, undivided, and all expansive. Basically, bigger than yourself and yet part of one giant universe.

A crown-chakra blockage or imbalance may create feelings of isolation or emotional distress —basically feeling disconnected from the your surroundings, from everyone and everything. Someone with closed crown chakra will be living in his head, being disconnected from his body and earthly matters, the thing that might lead to obsessive attachment to spiritual matters and closed-mindedness.
