Higher Consciousness; Inner wisdom; Spiritual awakening; Enlightenment; Sense of unity; Life of gratitude & unconditional love.

Sense: 

  • Sense of empathy; 

  • Unity is experiencing another person's experience as if you were inside them, being them. 

  • Perception of unity or separation

  • Relationship with our Father in heaven. Connection with our biological Father becomes the model for our relationship with authority and, ultimately, with God at the level of the soul. When one experiences a sense of separation from their Father, they close the crown chakra, experiencing a sense of isolation and aloneness; 

  • Difficulty feeling contact with those around them.

  • Thought processes tend to justify and maintain the sense of aloneness. This includes seeing oneself as the Single consciousness creating all and paradoxically connected to all, like a dreamer dreaming a dream, realizing all that is perceived is just an extension of our own consciousness.

 

Positive Power: Transcending

Opening the 7th chakra takes years of training, regular meditation, prayer, and consciously living a life of unconditional love, balancing it with consciousness, spiritual awakening, and integration with God. A desire to be of service and have a loving, kind heart can be achieved if the desire is true and the intention stays focused on love and service.

Others describe you as 'glowing'.

Your crown chakra is WEAK or CLOSED. You tend to feel little or no connection to a higher power and always feel alone. You feel unworthy of spiritual help and perhaps even angry that your higher power has abandoned you. You often suffer from migraines and tension headaches.
