The crown chakra is represented by a thousand petal lotus flower, which implies the infinite nature of this chakra provides us with our most direct connection to the divine. The associated colour is violet, white and gold, as is located at the top of the head. The musical note for this chakra is B and the mantra is “AUM”.
The crown chakra is the portal to our highest states of consciousness. It is where your prana (life-force) enters our energetic body. It is the chakra where we transcend the duality of the physical world and where we live in oneness with all that is. This is the place of grace, where spiritual knowledge and knowing lies. Where our psyche, pure ego and individuality have no division and combine in unity. It is the level of our soul.
The crown chakra connects with the higher frequencies of the universe or some may call this God. God can be seen as the cosmos, the divine, the infinite intelligence…or whoever you personally see God to be. The crown invites the light of the Divine into our energetic bodies to connect us, to love us, to support us and protect us. We must remember that when working with energy, that we are the energy of light, though we may all be different vibrations of light frequencies. To be clear in this energy centre we need to have an open and trusting relationship with God.

The Pineal Glands
This gland is governed by the crown chakra. This gland regulates the secretion of the hormone Melatonin. Melatonin regulates our sleep/waking patterns or circadian rhythms.

More light… less melatonin produced. Less light…more melatonin produced.
