The first chakra outside of the physical body is the 7th chakra (also referred to as the crown chakra). The journey doesn’t end here as there are more energy centres located higher up above this chakra, so there is continual energy flow moving upwards as well as energy moving back down into the physical form. Like all things that seemingly end, it’s not so much an ending as it is a transformation. All endings result in new beginnings.
The Sanskrit term for this chakra is Sahasrara. It is the only one of the seven major chakras that is located outside of the body, so it is where it all comes together. By working on bringing all of the lower six chakras into balance we can more easily gain access to the crown chakra. By bringing balance and awareness to all of these energy centres (which results in harmony and understanding of our bodies, minds and different areas of life), we can see how truly wonderful and amazing we are. This is THE goal of the crown chakra . . . to help us identify our light.
