Consciousness: The Crown Chakras represent the part of our consciousness concerned with perceptions of unity or separation. Just as the Root Chakra shows our connection with the Earth, this chakra shows our relationship with the higher realms. It's the level of the soul.
The view from this chakra includes seeing one's self as the single consciousness creating all, and paradoxically, thus connected to all, like a dreamer dreaming a dream and realizing that all that is perceived is just an extension of their own consciousness.
