The top chakra of the seven is known as Sahaswara or the crown chakra. It is located at the crown of the head – it encompasses the space around your whole head, overlapping energetically over the crown and throat areas. It is above you, behind you, and all the way around, matching up with the auric field of the rest of the chakras below, completing the energy. The color associated with the crown chakra is violet to white and its element is thought. Sahaswara is our source of enlightenment and spiritual connection to our higher selves, to every being on the planet, and ultimately the divine energy that creates everything in the universe. The basic issues of your crown chakra are connection to source or the Divine, wisdom, intuitive knowing, spiritual development, selflessness, universal higher consciousness, knowledge, understanding, consciousness, meditation, transcendence, belief systems, higher power, divinity, union, vision.
