This center is also referred to as the "Thousand Petal Lotus" and functions to maintain a continuity of
consciousness. It receives spiritual energy from cosmic sources, and processes energy flowing up
from the lower chakras. A block in this chakra disrupts or prevents flow of spiritual energy in either
direction. Life now becomes stagnant and meaningless. All possibilities for spiritual growth will cease
and the physical body will eventually die when this chakra is blocked. A proper balancing of this chakra
will release information of our higher self with our physical body.
