Merkaba, also spelled Merkabah, is the divine light vehicle allegedly used by ascended masters to connect with and reach those in tune with the higher realms. "Mer" means Light. "Ka" means Spirit. "Ba" means Body. Mer-Ka-Ba means the spirit/body surrounded by counter-rotating fields of light, (wheels within wheels), spirals of energy as in DNA, which transports spirit/body from one dimension to another.
In modern esoteric teachings, it is taught that the MerKaBa is an interdimensional vehicle consisting of two equally sized, interlocked tetrahedra of light with a common center, where one tetrahedron points up and the other down. This point symmetric form is called a stella octangula or stellated octahedron which can also be obtained by extending the faces of a regular octahedron until they intersect again.
In his books, researcher and physicist Drunvalo Melchizedek describes this figure as a "Star Tetrahedron", since it can be viewed as a three dimensional Star of David. By imagining two superimposed "Star Tetrahedrons" as counterrotating , along with specific "prana" breathing techniques, certain eye movements and mudras, it is taught that one can activate a non-visible 'saucer' shaped energy field around the human body that is anchored at the base of the spine. Depending on the height of the person doing the exercise, this field is about 55 feet across. Once activated, this 'saucer' shaped field is capable of carrying ones consciousness directly to higher dimensions.
It is intricate, beautiful and orderly, from the initial form - the circle, it unfolds to create the seed of life, mulitplying itself to form the flower of life. The Merkaba is contained wholly within the circle, the flower of life. It is one of the most powerful shapes, more powerful than DNA, it is the basis of all biological lifeforms, It creates reality, all reality.
Once our mind, which is duality based (right and left hemispheres) grasps this concept it begins to open up and balance takes place, shifting our consciousness to one of enlightenment, moving out of duality consciousness into unity consciousness.
Everything manifest has done so through sacred geometry. The merkaba is creation.Â
