Crown Chakra

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.

7_Crown Chakra - Upperworld

7. Branches – Crown Chakra – Belief System – Natures Archetype

The crown chakra is located at the top of the head and is connected to our belief system. This is the place of spiritual connection beyond the self.

The branches of a tree represent our desire to connect to something beyond our self. Just as the roots of a tree reach down to the earth, branches reach up toward the sky. Many early cultures believed that when a person died their physical body returned to the earth and their soul or spirit returned to the stars.

As humans studied the sky they noticed that the sun set at night and rose in the opposite direction each morning. This inspired early cultures to record the sunrise and sunset until they understood that it created arepeating cycle or solar year.

These ancient astronomers also tracked the stars and literally connected the dots. This eventually led to their ability to create divine order. The word divine comes from the Latin root word “devin,” meaning “as above.”  The sound of wind through the trees is often associated with the voice of the divine. When the Bible was translated from Hebrew, Greek and Latin into German during the 1400s, the ancient Semitic names of Adonai, El, YHVH and Jehovah were replaced with the Proto-Germanic word Guden, meaning: “to invoke the sound of wind in the trees.” This was based on the passage in Genesis 3:8 “And they heard the sound of the Jehovah walking in the garden in the cool of the day”, cool of the day” is interpreted as the evening winds. The Bible was translated into English in 1526, the word Guden became God. Remember there are a thousand names for “God” and is also nameless. The branches of a tree hold these stories. The crown chakra serves as a connection to source that sees beyond the self to the infinite soul.

Message: It is time for you to reach out and believe in your dreams.  Allow your dreams to be known so the universe can help you make them come true.  Remember that you are a child of the universe who can touch the stars.

28. Sphere

21_Light - Sphere - Crown

21. Sphere – Light – Crown Chakra

The crown chakra is associated with our belief systems. It serves as a connection to source and the infinite nature of our soul. Spheres inspire the mind to transcend thought.

Spheres are three-dimensional circles. Our sun is a sphere, and a star, and our source of light. The electromagnetic spectrum of light makes up less than 5% of all ordinary matter. Light that is actually visible to the human eye represents less than 2.3% of this spectrum and is created by narrow wavelengths of pure spectral colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet. Infrared light (below red) and ultra violet (above violet) are made up of frequencies that are invisible to the human eye. This full spectrum of light includes UVA, radio waves, microwaves, X-rays & gamma rays.

The remaining 95% of our universe contains dark energy and dark matter. We tend to be drawn to the light but we live in a universe filled with unmanifested darkness.  This can be seen as pure potential waiting to become manifest.

Message: Balancing darkness and light is an important dynamic in all aspects of your life. Both are necessary to maintain optimum health physically and spiritually. If you fear the dark it is time to make peace with it.  Think of darkness as the unmanifested potential that lies within you. If the dark represents fear, remember that you are the one projecting this fear. When you own your projections, you realize that you are the only one who can change it.  If sleep is an issue create a darker environment in your bedroom and establish a nourishing nighttime ritual that calms your senses. If you avoid light go outside and make peace with the sun and the moon in moderation. Create a daily routine that balances the light and dark that are playing out in your life right now.

“We are each gifted in a unique and important way. It is our privilege and our adventure to discover our own special light.” – Evelyn Dunbar

42. Awakened Self

42_Awakened Self - Crown

42. Awakened Self – Crown Chakra – Star of Life – Consciousness

The awakened self sees the one and all in everything. Carl Jung focused on integrating the opposite aspects of the conscious and unconscious mind to deepen the sense of self. He saw that the human psyche was by nature religious, seeking to understand the meaning of life and death.  This led to the creation of stories and religions that separated the soul.  He believed that to heal the soul it would require a journey within to meet the self and the divine at the same time. He saw the concept of archetypes as the shared experiences of being human.

It is through these archetypes that we can awaken the self.

The story of the Garden of Eden symbolizes the archetypal separation of the human psyche from the soul.  Jung saw the tree as an archetype of the human psyche. He saw the mandala as the archetype of wholeness, where the self and the soul become one. When the self reaches this level of awareness, also called enlightenment, moksha, nirvana etc.… the ability to see through time and space becomes accessible with a single thought. Life becomes infinitely expansive as awareness radiates in all directions in every dimension. This might sound mind blowing but it is what many seekers seek, bliss. It is pure and uncluttered, there are no worries or pretenses you just are.

Message: See yourself as a soul having a human experience. Sense the infinite world within you. Whatever troubles you are experiencing are merely temporary. Look around and embody the miracles of your life. Feel gratitude as you rise above the mundane.

“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” – Rumi

49. Soul Light

Soul Light

49. Soul Light – Crown Chakra – Tree of Light – Oneness

Soul light connects us to our source. The Axis Mundi (World Tree) connects us to the center of the Milky Way. The Anima Mundi (World Soul) connects us to the universal soul. Our source of light comes from the Sun, which is a star. It is anchored by a mythical tree that connects us to the stars while we live on the earth

As humans studied the night sky they observed a stationary star in the Northern Hemisphere that other stars rotated around. This star became known as the North Star or Pole Star, based on the fact that trees were used as poles. This discovery inspired calendars, time, astronomy, geometry etc.

Polaris, our current Pole Star, will come closest to the center of our actual North Pole in 2100. Polaris will then slowly begin to move away as another Pole Star will take its place. Pole Stars change over a period of 25,800 years (also known as a Platonic Year). This is caused by the earth’s rotational wobble known as the precession of the equinoxes. The constellation Draco (dragon), contained the previous pole star known as Thuban. It inspired many mythological stories of dragons and feathered serpents that shine a light into our shared history.

The ring of six North Stars (constellations):

(These dates are when each star reaches its peak position)

Past North Stars

                  Denab – 15,000 BCE (Cygnus/Swan)

                  Vega – 12,000 BCE (Lyra/Lyre)

                  Thuban – 3000 BCE (Draco/Dragon)

Present North Star

                  Polaris – 2100 CE (Ursa Minor/Bear)

Future North Stars

                  Gamma Cephei, Errai – 4000 CE (Cepheus/King)

                  Alderamin or Iota Cephei – 7500 CE (Cepheus/King)

Denab – 10,000 CE (Cygnus/Swan)

                  Vega –  14,000 CE (Lyra/Lyre)

                  Thuban – 23,000 CE (Draco/Dragon)

                  Polaris –  26,000 CE (Ursa Minor/Bear)

Message: You are a being of light that is interconnected with everything around you. Radiate your light to illuminate your life and your world. The source of your light comes from your soul. Its fuel is love. It is time to love the light within you and believe in your pure potential.

“You have no need to travel anywhere. Journey within yourself and bathe in the splendor of your own light.” – Rumi
