Your eighth chakra is located above your crown chakra, slightly above your head, and is the first of the “spiritual chakras” — those that are beyond the first seven chakras, which help you to become one with the universe, and is the conduit of psychic abilities and spiritual information from the higher self to the physical self.
This energy center is said to open access to parallel universes and lives; it gives access to the realm of the Akashic records and the sphere of potentialities in the making. It is a useful center for shamanic healing and communication with spirit guides.
This is also the chakra that holds all your karmic energy that you may have clung to for lifetimes, as well as emotions and goals. It is important to remember that the universe maintains balance and does not keep cosmic tabs on our behavior. We alone are responsible for those life lessons.
Once the door to the physical world is closed and the one of the spiritual world is opened, your perception and outlook will be changed forever. It is at this point in your development that you will begin to see the world through new eyes. You will begin to see the universe not as a singular thing that is far off, you will see it as something dimensional of which you are an integral part.
You probably already aware that the seven chakras that are focal points of energy on your body. But did you also know that there are about a dozen more chakras beyond over and above these seven? That’s no joke! These higher or spiritual chakras are the links between your personality and your higher self.
