The violet Crown Chakra is located at the top of the head, slightly to the back. Associated with our feeling of oneness with “the all,” spiritual wisdom, final understanding, and connectedness with our inner spirit. Unbalanced, the crown chakra can cause a feeling of disconnectedness with the “river of life,” uninspired, feeling misunderstood and self denial.

Its role may be envisioned somewhat similarly to that of the pituitary gland, which secretes hormones to communicate to the rest of the endocrine system and also connects to the central nervous system via the hypothalamus. Sahasrara’s inner aspect deals with the release of karma, physical action with meditation, mental action with universal consciousness and unity, and emotional action with beingness.
