The Merkaba is a three dimensional Star of David, made of two tetrahedrons (a three-dimensional triangle or three sided-pyramid). This sacred geometric shape symbolizes our light body that surrounds us, which its activation through special meditation is mentioned in ancient mystical sources such as the Bible, Kabbalah and traditional Tarot cards.
Around our bodies and around all other things and beings in the universe exists an energy field. The Merkaba is created when these energy fields are activated through special breathing meditation, and start rotating in opposite directions around our bodies, at the speed of light. The Merkabah is a vehicle that can aid mind, body and spirit to access and experience other planes of reality or potentials of life.
The shape of the Merkaba surrounds our bodies. We possess a physical body, a mental body and an emotional body, each of which is represented in the tetrahedron star. The interlaced triangles represent the perfect equilibrium of the male and female energies, merging and creating reality.
The tetrahedron with the apex facing upwards towards the sun is male, and the tetrahedron with the apex facing down towards the earth, is female. This is true for both men and women. There are only two ways by which a person can fit symmetrically inside a Merkaba. When the point at the base of the male tetrahedron faces the front, it represents a male. When the point at the base of the female tetrahedron faces the front, it represents a female.
The key to using the Merkaba is love - opening our hearts to feel unconditional and divine love for all creatures. As we do this, the Merkaba's rotating fields balance against thoughts and knowledge and the Merkaba living field of light is created.
The Merkaba shape is a powerful symbol used for Merkaba meditation, which helps humans connect with their higher self. Each and every one of us is able to experience this knowledge for transformation in time and space. The Merkabah enables us to experience expanded awareness, connects us with elevated potentials of consciousness, and restores access and memory of the infinite possibilities of our being. Merkaba activates the protective love of the universe and awakens, heals, and transforms on the spiritual, physical, mental, and emotional levels.
The secrets of the Merkaba are studied again today around the world, after being concealed for thousands of years in ancient sources of knowledge.
