28. Crown Chakra – Sahasrara – Light Body
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 within.
Our dreams are interrelated with our crown chakra as a conduit beyond time and space. Stars have filled the night sky inspiring our souls to travel since the dawn of time.
