The Crown Chakra is the Chakra that activates and opens at us up to the higher consciousness. The two basic energies of duality, which we name masculine and feminine, unite, bond and transcends at this Chakra creating (when it is active ) a super consciousness that is beyond time and space. In the Super consciousness a process of unification occurs between you the Human personality and Higher Self.
When you begin to have been even a small glimpse of what these words mean, it is like an enormous power being lit up in the mind. People have described his experience in many different ways. “The top of my head felt as if it was splitting”, “ a fountain of divine light flowed in-and-out”, “I was taken into the light”. Once be begin to have these kind of experiences, there is no going back. Mundane everyday life is forever changed and we see everything as a play of subtle energies. Influencing the head, this Chakra opens upwards. It connects deep within the brain to the pineal gland, which is an important key to our biological clock. The pineal gland, and the gonads (prostate/ testes or ovaries/ uterus at the base Chakra work closely together to regulate sexual growth at puberty.
The pineal gland produces a hormone called melatonin, which regulates the light reactive photoreceptors in the retina of the eye. Continuous light decreases melatonin production, and increased production in the dark at night calms us down. During the day the pineal gland produces high levels of another hormone, serotonin, urging us into activity. So these two hormones work in a continuous circadian cycle.
serotonin is thought to have an important influence on our emotional state, high levels of the hormone are thought to improve mood. Various other hormones released by the pineal plant including pinoline, are similar to LSD , producing hallucinations and heightened states of awareness. The pineal gland also has a complex biological link with the adrenal glands, which produce adrenaline, the fight or flight hormone. This link is thought to influence stress levels, through the kidneys and gut, at the solar plexus and sacral Chakra.
