The crown chakra is associated with the color violet or white. It is located at the top of the head. We use the seventh chakra as a tool to communicate with our spiritual nature. It is through this vortice that the life force is dispersed from the universe into the lower 6 chakras. It is also the entranceway to the higher chakras.
This chakra is often pictured as a lotus flower opening to allow spiritual awakening within the individual. The crown chakra may also be considered the well from which intuitive knowledge is drawn. The connection to one's spirituality, integration of the whole and living in the now.
