In Sanskrit "Sehasara/Sahasrara"...The All is One Centre knowingness and Wisdom. A replica of all of the other chakras and the total energy signature of each individual is said to exist within the crown chakra. Here, our unique pattern of consciousness is kept in constant touch with all sorts of information from the outer universe and the subtle dimensions of spiritual energy. This chakra is connected to the whole of creation. As the base chakra connects us firmly and safely to the earth, the crown chakra opens us to the universal energy. In some ways, imbalances in either have similar symptoms. When balanced, the crown chakra increases the ability to understand things in a wider context allowing one to become more intuitive.
