These areas are the pineal gland, the pituitary, the nervous system and all master glands.

The 7th chakra is the area of the body where the functions of higher consciousness, spirituality and your commitment to higher ideals originate.
In order to ensure that you achieve those things that you desire it is of value to do daily meditation.
If possible you may like to combine meditation with specific crystals that stimulate this important chakra.
Crown Chakra Explained: The crown chakra meanings relate to spirituality, selflessness, empathy and humanitarianism.
This chakra is associated with the pineal gland, (also related to the third eye chakra) and with all of the master glands.
This chakras meaning is all about the idea of 'knowing' especially in a spiritual way.
It is strongly related to the gift of psychic knowing, and is the area where you connect with your higher self, and it also pertains to intelligence and deep thought.
As the pituitary gland secretes hormones that balance our whole system, it is important that this area is kept healthy.
The crown chakra or 7th chakra is located just above the top of the head.
As this chakra is located at the very top most point in the physical body, it is the point where spirit introduces energy for distribution throughout the body.
The soul star or eighth chakra sits above the seventh chakra, and and links to the higher transpersonal chakras via the stellar gateway, that is above that.
Spiritual energy enters the body via this chakra, and this brings the energy down from the higher transpersonal chakras into the body.
