"There is some disagreement among various traditional sources over whether the Sahasrara chakra or "thousand petaled lotus" is located at the crown point at the very top of the head, or at a distance above the head……The majority opinion seems to be that above the Crown or Nirvana Chakra are not one but several higher centres, which, like the inner mid-line centres, are not a part of the regular microcosmic orbit. Sri Aurobindo mentions only one, the Sahasrara. Shyam Sundar Goswami [Laya Yoga] refers to two: the Guru Chakra, white in colour and possessing twelve petals, and the Sahasrara or Sahsradala Chakra, with a thousand petals, of golden or variable colour. In the Radha Soami system however there are five higher chakras, the first being the Crown or Sahasrara centre, and each corresponding to a particular heaven region and inner or yogic sound (nada or shabda). Ann Ree Colton speaks of five chakras above the Crown centre. Whatever the number, all agree that these higher chakras represent varying degrees of transpersonal or higher spiritual Intuitive Divine Consciousness. Barbara Brennan refers to the highest point in this central chakra line the ID point or individuation point; located about a metre above the head, it represents our first individuation out of the void or unmanifest Godhead [Light Emerging, p.289]. This would be the same as Ann Ree Colton's "Eternal Sustaining Atom" or "Atma" located above the head as far as the arms can reach, and which constitutes the highest sphere of spiritual consciousness. This is region of the superconscious principle and demiurgic hierarchies [The Third Music, pp.85-6, 124, 132]."
