When we talk about the 7 chakras we should always keep in mind the scheme of our microcosm. Today every spiritual seeker knows that there are seven main chakras - also described as energy centers or wheels of light - but little is known about their deeper spiritual and metaphysical significance. An important point that needs to be understood is that the very same energy vibrates on all of these seven energy levels. However, when this energy reaches the energy centers, it is being transformed accordingly, so that different qualities of that particular wheel of light are attained
The crown energy center - Sahasrara - is located at the top of the head. It is the center of primeval life, one of absolute, limitless consciousness. If awaken to its full capacity, Sahasrara will surpass all the other centers, both in beauty and in quality. The crown center is capable of irradiating energy of unspeakably beautiful colors and with extremely high speed.
The crown center contains all of the spectral colors, but the vivid violet flame is its most dominant facet. In the eastern manuscripts this chakra is described as the 1000 petaled lotus, which is close to the exact number of 972 primal forces emanating from this center.
We are usually more adapted to Earth's planetary energies - the ones that enter via the first energy center. Therefore, the Divine and Transcendental energies which have their origin in the spiritual planes remain basically unknown to us for a long period of time.
