The Crown Chakra – also called the Seventh chakra or Sahasrara – is located at the top of the head. It is the spiritual gateway and it is from here that all the other chakras emanate. The Universal life force flows through the crown chakra and down into the lower six chakras. The seventh chakra Sahasrara governs the pineal gland, central nervous system, brain functions, and the highest functions of the mind. The crown chakra is associated with the color Violet, the element Ether, and the sense of Spiritual connectedness.
