The gift of the Crown Chakra is experiencing unity and the selfless realization that everything is connected at a fundamental level. The energy of this chakra allows us to experience mystical oneness with everyone and everything in nature. It is the meeting point between finite (the body and the ego) and infinite (the universe and soul). It is the place where time and timelessness intersect and where death and eternal life meet.
The thousand petal chakra embraces an attitude of gratitude for one's life. When we realize that everything is interconnected and that we are part of the larger scheme of life, we begin to live with gratitude, faith, and trust, rather than filled with fear and anxiety. We are guided by the higher power and we feel divinity from within and from without.
The challenge of this chakra is to liberate the spirit - open to the divine - and at the same time stay firmly rooted deep in the ground. According to Tantric philosophy, the seventh chakra is both a receiver and giver of energy and consciousness. It receives energy to sustain life and it gives back the personal energy to unite with the collective pool of consciousness. You have a sense of knowing that there is a deeper meaning of life and that there is an order that underlies all of the existence. which connects us with the universe and the Divine source of creation. This chakra is what allows people to move beyond individual materialistic needs to connect with the universal whole.
Opening the crown chakra brings spiritual insight, mindfulness and the ability to live with quiet self-confidence in all aspects of life. One way to help open this chakra is by focusing on dreams and writing down one's visions and inventions.

“God of the Wild, you are different from what I expected. I cannot predict you. You are too free to be captured for the sake of my understanding. I can’t find you in the sentimentalism of religion. You are everywhere I least expect to find you. You are not the force that saves me from the pain of living; you are the force that brings me life even in the midst of pain.” ~ Adolfo Quezada
