Key Takeaways

What is the Crown Chakra?

The Crown Chakra, also known as the Sahasrara Chakra, is the seventh primary chakra in the human body, sitting above the Third Eye Chakra. It is located at the top of the head, and is associated with the color violet or white.

The Crown Chakra is considered the highest of the major chakras and is believed to represent the divine connection between our physical bodies and a higher power. It is associated with spiritual awakening, enlightenment, and the realization of one’s true nature. 

When the Sahasrara Chakra is balanced and open, individuals may experience a sense of inner peace, clarity, and connection to the universe. You can also benefit from heightened intuition and spiritual awareness.

However, when you have a blocked or overactive Crown Chakra, you may experience feelings of disconnection, confusion, and lack of purpose. You may also struggle to find a spiritual connection.

Crown Chakra Symbol Meaning

Every part of the Seventh Chakra symbol gives us a little more insight into the role of the Sahasrara in our energy system.

Lotus Flower

The lotus flower is a symbol of purity, enlightenment, and rebirth. Sometimes referred to as the flower of life, lotus flowers grow in muddy waters before they surface and produce beautiful blooms. 

This is a metaphor for our own spiritual growth and enlightenment – just like a lotus flower when our Seventh Chakra is balanced, we can overcome the challenges of our physical existence to grow on a spiritual level and achieve enlightenment. 


The thousand petals represent the infinite nature and divine unity of the universe. Each petal is also thought to represent a different stage within our spiritual awakening.

The circular design of the flower petals reminds us of the never-ending flow of life force energy in the universe and the cyclical nature of life. 


The color violet represents spirituality and higher consciousness. It is also the color of royalty, symbolizing our connection with the divine through the Crown Chakra. White represents enlightenment, positive energy and spiritual purity.  

The Origins of the Crown Chakra Symbol

The symbol of the Crown Chakra was first documented in ancient Hindu texts. In Hinduism, the lotus flower is a sacred symbol representing the awakening of our spiritual nature. The color violet is associated with the God Vishnu who is often depicted in violet robes.
