Chakra Ascension" Series- 7 Sahasrara

In 2003, I created seven 3D images that I intended to be a series.

The images show a solitary, meditating figure in different environments. Each setting corresponds to the ancient metaphysical energy system within the body, known as "chakras".

I am not a chakra meditation practitioner, so I approached this as a metaphorical work of art. I've finally decided to post the "Chakra Ascension" series, for other people to contemplate.

I'll be introducing a new image every day, from now until the Summer Solstice- June 21, 2014.

*Now that it's complete, here is a link to the whole series. There's also a free e-book version that can be downloaded at this link :

This image represents the 7th level of Ascension- the Crown Chakra, Sahasrara.

The color associated with this chakra is violet, and its element is pure consciousness.

Sahasrara is located at the crown, or top, of the head.
It is sometimes called the "thousand-petaled lotus" and is considered the chakra of thought and consciousness. "Consciousness" can be understood as the infinite field of information that permeates the Universe- from the smallest particles to the vast cosmos, and everything in between.

Appearing like a violet 'flying saucer' above The Observer’s head, the spinning Sahasrara chakra connects upward, into The Infinite, through a beam of coherent light.
This is the gateway to cosmic consciousness.

At this final stage in our Ascension, we realize that what we think of as an "individual" or "person" is just a brief process within unimaginably long cycles of time, taking place in the practically infinite expanse of space. When we can deeply recognize these truths, we begin to break down the delusion of seeing ourselves as entities that are separate from the totality of the Universe.

In this image, the physical body of The Observer has further de-materialized & has detached from the grounding pillar below. 
Not only is it impossible to discern the front of the body from the back, but the figure has become transparent, like a diamond that is clear yet indestructible.

The Observer has begun to merge with the pure, white luminosity of The Clear Light. This is the fundamental, infinite field of energy that underlies ALL of reality.

I personally had a near-death experience, in which my consciousness was dissolved into The Clear Light. There was no sight, sound, emotion, or conscious thought, of any kind. My mind was abiding in an all-enveloping silence... surrounded by interpenetrating, pure white luminosity.

Beyond the highest ascension of one's consciousness, there is only this infinite field of energy.
"The Clear Light" is just a name for the fundamental source from which everything arises- from quantum fluctuations to the vast structures of the cosmos.

This source can be called “The Clear Light” • “God” • “the Quantum Field” • “the Universe” • “Brahma” • “Tao” ...or any other name.

Regardless of what we call it, the fundamental "One-ness" of reality remains a self-evident truth.

To deeply realize this truth, and all the lessons of this series, YOU must become The Observer.
Look within yourself, while integrating all these ideas from the various stages. Try to maintain an open mind, deep inner vision, compassion for others, and a love of Life.

Then, you will be a master of your own Ascension into a higher consciousness.
