The Crown Chakra reaches the heights of spirituality. It connects us with our indelible and permanent divinity, and is the source of healing energy in the human energy system. The chakras act as a ladder to love, spirituality, and healing, from the base energy of the Root Chakra, which anchors us in life, to the more refined spiritual energy of the Crown Chakra. Like all other energy centers in the human energy system, the Crown Chakra exists as a vestigial core of potential until it is activated.
The Crown Chakra opens when we have attained psychological maturity and spiritual development. The opening of the Crown Chakra coincides with a time in our lives when we may have to face several difficult personal choices and external life challenges. These ultimately bring us spiritual insights and a greater sense of what we are capable of, and what our higher purpose might be. For many, such realizations are often seen as a form of "midlife" crisis – enlightenment often leads us to reject what we have been, in pursuit of what we could become.
The Crown Chakra is the center where we experience and know a higher god as an active presence in our lives and where we can choose to follow his ways. It is the driving force for mystics and healers immersed in cosmic consciousness and for all those who actively seek and cultivate their spiritual path.
In order for the Crown Chakra to open, it is no longer necessary for us to renounce the world and its material temptations entirely. Our goal must be to see the spirit in all life and to understand that we are here on Earth to be happy and fulfill our soul's longings for love, peace, and happiness. When the Crown Chakra does not open, we need rest, tranquility, and peace in order to contemplate the wonders and mysteries of the divine. By balancing worldly activity with spiritual pursuits we can remain grounded in life, often bringing healing and transformation in subtle ways to our immediate world.
