Crown Chakra 7 – Sahasrara

Associated with no animal as such but I like the idea taken from `Whats your sign .com`where it has been assigned the egg as this signifies to me our rebirth out of our human shape in our spiritual selves. Also I have seen the eagle assigned to this chakra to represent far sightedness.
Positive cleared chakra – enlightenment, Universal love, Universal energy and connection with universal mind.
Negative blocked chakra – Brain growth causing pressure on the brain, Depression, Isolation and Worry.
Sanskrit symbol meaning – Vibrates silently with the mantra OM
Petal mantras, 20 layers of 50 petals – 20 is said to be how many material layers (worlds) there are in the universe, 50 is the sum of the petal of the lower 6 chakras and the 50 sanskrit letters are written in each layer. These 50 vibrations are said to be wave atoms of which our universe is built hence the whole universe is reflected in our bodies, control of these subtle levels and vibrations along with the energies in the chakras leads to spiritual enlightenment.
