Sahasrara Chakra - the crown energy center
Sahasrara is the crown energy center - located at the top of our head, here is where our spirituality lies dormant, waiting to be awakened and rise up to allow our true connection with our higher self to manifest.

The crown chakra is the fuel for connection to the eternal source that creates and contains everything there was, there is and there will be.
