This Chakra is the highest energy center in relation to the physical body and has no disfunctions as we are always connected to Source. Have you ever looked up at the stars, or at the horizon of a vast ocean and felt a surge of gratitute and love, or even a fleeting deep understanding at your core? If you feel one with the Universe, or an Interconnection with all creatures, you have become aware of this Chakra's purpose.
Some believe this is where the soul enters the body at the beginning of life, and leaves at transition from the physical to the spiritual. Its shape is an 'upside down' open cone with the point starting at the crown of your head.
Having all seven Chakras open, connected and balanced is an integral piece of health and vitality. Chakras become the opposite due to stress, illness, injury, emotional upset, mental anguish, etc. To rebalance, always start with the Root Chakra located at the base of your spine and work your way up. (Remember this Chakra is opposite in shape to the Crown Chakra - its point begins at the tailbone and fans out to the Earth). You can either mentally or physically touch each Chakra, imagine it spinning in a clockwise position (on your body) and bring in nature's rich, vibrant colors for each Chakra.
