The crown chakra is centered above your head, literally at your ‘crown.’ Although it has an association with the central nervous system and the brain, the main body function related to the crown is the pituitary gland. The pituitary gland is the main ‘boss’ and is responsible for telling the other glands what to do, hormone distribution, and endocrine function. SInce it is the highest of all chakras, it is the master chakra, the center of thought. It is also known as Sahasrara, or petals. When the crown is balanced, you feel balanced. Your thoughts and emotions are in control, you are connected to yourself and aware of others, you are open to new possibilities, and you have a deep understanding of you, your role in the universe, and your relationship with the divine.
