The Seventh Chakra – Crown Chakra
Your crown chakra is the chakra that activates & opens you up to higher consciousness & it can be known as the thousand petaled lotus & is called Sahasrara in Indian.
The crown chakra has been described as having a thousand white petals arranged in twenty layers, each layer has fifty petals with the letters of the Sanskrit alphabet on them.
The two basic energies of duality, known as feminine & masculine unite, bond & transform at this chakra, creating a super consciousness that is beyond space & time, when it’s fully active.
The Higher Self & human personality join in this super consciousness.
Tiny jewels of all that is , all that has been & all that will ever be are carried as soul seeds from one lifetime to another.
When you begin to see what theses word mean, it’s like an enormous power being lit up in your mind; some people have described this experience many different ways, some say the top of their head feels like it’s splitting, a fountain of Divine light flowed in & out & I was taken into the light.
Normal life seems very boring, once you start to have these kind of experiences & you see everything as a play of subtle energies.
