The crown chakra represents our connection beyond the self to the mystical aspects of our soul’s true nature. Swiss psychologist Carl Jung felt that the human psyche “was by nature religious,” and to heal the soul would require a journey to meet the self and the divine within. Mankind has created over a thousand names for god in search of connection. The crown chakra reminds us to seek the divine within.
The Sanskrit word Sahasrara, means “thousand-petaled throne”. This is the place where our dreams unfold, as we travel beyond the illusion of time and space. We wish upon stars that have filled the night sky for billions of years. The crown chakra reminds us that they are all within our reach.
