The Merkaba is an extremely powerful symbol. It is a combination of two-star tetrahedrons – one pointing up to the heavens, channelling energy down from the Universe to the earth plane, and one pointing downwards, drawing energy up from the earth beneath. The top or upward pointing tetrahedron is male and rotates clockwise, with the bottom or downwards pointing one being female, which rotates counterclockwise.
What Does ‘Merkaba’ Mean? The word Merkaba can be broken down in this way: MER: rotating fields of light, KA: spirit, and BA: soul (this is taken from an 18th dynasty Egyptian translation, and in Hebrew, it means ‘chariot’). Therefore, Mer-Ka-Ba means the spirit or energy body surrounded by counter-rotating fields of light, or spirals of energy (as with a strand of DNA), which transport spirit or consciousness from one dimension to another. What is Merkaba? The Merkaba is the Light Body vehicle, and it is the key to understanding how to move from one dimension or level to another. It is the divine light vehicle supposedly used by Ascended Masters to connect with and reach those in tune with the higher realms. When this shape is activated around your body, you are in a place of complete protection, with the surrounding energy being generated from pure Divine Love. It is believed that with practice, using the energy and shape visualization of a Merkaba, you can activate an energy field around you which is capable of carrying your consciousness directly to higher realms.
When meditating, try sitting holding a MerKaBa and picture yourself inside this shape, with the two tetrahedrons rotating (as described above). It takes some practice, but is eased greatly by actually having a Merkaba to focus on! When achieved you will be sitting in a place of complete protection, harmony and Universal balance.
