The Crown Chakra is your connection with Divine Spirit and the gateway in which life force enters your chakra system. When developed, this chakra is no larger or more radiant than the other six major energy centres. However, when fully awakened, it is the “mystical centre” and the most magnificent of all the chakras.
The Crown chakra is your energetic link to expressions of reality that lie beyond the dimensions of everyday existence. As it opens, you become more aware of your multi-dimensional nature. The more balanced your crown chakra is, the stronger your connection to Divine consciousness.

The Egocentric – A common expression is “I made my own luck”. Total focus on the material world and the illusion of their control over it. Egocentrics have no awareness of, nor relationship with, the Divine. These personalities regard themselves as wholly responsible for all the benefits they accrue in life. Their psychological well being largely depends on material success since Egocentrics identify themselves solely in terms of what they do, not who they are. They have no time for anything that can’t be explained logically. So, self determination and tight control over their own lives make Egocentrics value materialism, only to find, when this is no longer meaningful, that they lack the inner resources to get more from life.
The Guru – accept how little they know and trust that their connection to their Higher Self will always provide the right answer or pathway. These individuals radiate an inner calm that comes from a total acceptance of who – not what – they truly are. These are not human beings trying to be Spiritual, but spiritual beings learning vital emotional lessons through temporarily wearing the cloak of humanity. This archetype in many aspects, hold the key to living successfully on this earth, in the acceptance of personal limitations and the awareness that all things are possible.
