Crown Chakra Equilibrium
Known as the Chakra of formlessness, the seventh chakra is located above the top of the head and affects all raised brain functions. The crown is associated with knowledge. Clarity of perception and self-understanding is achieved when the Crown Chakra functions properly. Once fully integrated, the crown chakra represents Illumination.
When the female kundalini Shakti energy rises to the crown, it unites with the male Shiva energy, and a state of liberating samadhi is attained. Symbolized by a lotus with one thousand multi-coloured petals, it is located either at the crown of the head, or above the crown of the head. Sahasrara is represented by the colour white and it involves such issues as inner wisdom and the transcendence of the spiritual body.
Its role is similar to that of the pituitary gland, which secretes hormones to communicate to the rest of the endocrine system and connects to the central nervous system via the hypothalamus. Sahasrara’s inner aspect deals with the release of karma, physical action with meditation, mental action with universal consciousness and unity, and emotional action with “being”. In Tibetan buddhism, the point at the crown of the head is represented by a white circle, with 32 downward pointing petals. Within this chakra is contained the White drop, or Bodhicitta, which is the essence of masculine energy.
