Peace, Wisdom, and Enlightenment
The thousand-petaled lotus residing at the top of our chakra system, the crown chakra is our center for inner wisdom, spirituality, and conscious. This chakra is our connection to the heavens and continues to be developed over the lifetime. Intelligence and thoughtfulness are very closely tied to this chakra, though once we engage with this chakra, we learn that the knowledge is not something we read in a textbook, but rather the knowledge and wisdom of the universe, or the collective conscious, that is within us.
We are spiritual beings having a human experience. Those who may not believe to have this inner wisdom or a sense of spirituality are often blinded by an attachment or by attachments from the lower chakras. Some people find themselves obsessed and attached to their bodies, others may be attached to their money or possessions; this list is endless. Other individuals may simply dismiss the ideas of divinity and spirituality out of ignorance (i.e. the lack of understanding about our spiritual nature) or fear. If you feel that you have lost connection with your crown chakra or with your inner light, I recommend cleansing your lower chakras as well.
When we work with our crown chakra, we continue on our path of liberation towards enlightenment. As we awaken or reawaken our inner wisdom, we reconnect with our inner light and divinity, which is the same light and divinity that resides within all of us.
