The crown chakra-Hopi Prophecy

In Patanjali’s arrangement, the crown chakra is the highest center in the body, the kundalini having risen up the spine, moved through the brain to the brow, and culminated at the opening of the crown. In Revelation 3:11, the Spirit actually mentions the “crown” in reference to this center. In Cayce’s arrangement, the energy flows up the spine to the base of the brain, then to the center of the brain, where the pineal gland is located. Stimulating the pineal opens this crown chakra. If we fully awaken this center, then the Self promises to make us “a pillar in the temple of My God” and we will “never go out from it again.” The Spirit will also write the name of God, God’s city, and the Spirit’s new name upon us. Opening of the crown chakra is also associated with experiencing the Holy Spirit. How did the Holy Spirit appear among the disciples? In the form of tongues of fire on the tops of their heads, above the soft spot. The event is described in Acts 2:2-4: “Suddenly there came from heaven a noise like a violent, rushing wind, and it filled the whole house. There appeared tongues as of fire and it sat above each one of them. And they were filled with the Holy Spirit.” Prior to this experience, at the Last Supper, Jesus breathed the Holy Spirit upon the disciples and explained, “The Comforter, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send ... he will teach you all things.” In the early times of the Hopi, legend says that some of the people strayed and stopped cooperating with the Creator. Others remained loyal and at-one with the Creator. To these the “Great Nephew” appeared, telling those that were still seeking to cooperate and that they were to be a Chosen People to inhabit a new world that he was about to create. He told them that the center on the tops of their heads would guide them to this new world. This inner wisdom would give them the sight to see a certain cloud which they would follow by day and a certain star which they would follow by night. It is fascinating how similar this part of the Hopi legend is to that of the Israelites. Recall how the Lord told the Israelites that they were to be a Chosen People, and led them out from among the others to a promised land, instructing them that His presence would be with them in a cloud by day and a column of fire by night. When the great Nephew had finished instructing the Hopi Chosen People, all over the First World the Chosen People disappeared. Their villages were empty. The houses, temples, and fields ­ all empty. Many of those left behind called out to them, “Where are you going?” To which the Chosen Ones replied, “We are following the cloud and the star.” The others laughed and said, “We see no cloud or star.” The Chosen People explained to them, “This is because you have lost your inner vision that came from the tops of your heads.” The top of the head is the crown chakra, a most important spiritual center. Cayce identifies it with “the mount,” and states that only those who have experienced “the rejuvenation in the mount” may know the truth and enter fully into the Creator’s presence to receive the resulting guidance. He goes on to say that as this center is awakened and our soul’s memories return to consciousness, stating that this event is what is referred to when Jesus said “The Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things....” -John 14:25. Let’s ignite again our crown chakra. Let’s ascend to the mount of higher consciousness. Let’s open the soft spot, through which our soul first entered this body, and receive the inner vision, the inner guidance. The Hopi prophecy says that soon a new stage of life will begin, a stage in which only those who are open at the tops of their heads will be able to hear and see and know the way.
