Similar to the spires found on churches, although for the spiritual energy given off in churches.

A missaligned Crown Chakra can cause self centeredness, spiritual poverty and on a more physical side, poor reality control, and low energy all the time.

The Planet ruling the Crown Chakra is Saturn, who is the Lord of Karma, meaning work yields its own rewards, that good things are worth waiting for. No instant enlightenment lasts, although the experience may be profound. The reality is that spiritual work is tiresome, repetitive, boring and mostly unrewarded in the short term. In the long term, however and particularly as we approach old age and death, spiritual work becomes the only reality worth pursuing, however erratic the progress might be, most of us have many life times to attain enlightenment, others through hard work now and our previous life experiences will attain that which we all desire before our transition. The colour of this Chakra is violet / purple.
