Some say Merkaba some say Mer-kah-bah BUT WHAT IS IT?

Some say Merkaba some say Mer-kah-bah  BUT WHAT IS IT?

I’m sure many of you have heard this term used in the growing spiritual and enlightened communities. Though how many of us really know what it is? I've been doing some research so that I could share a bit more background on what this divine symbol really means.
My Reiki 1 Attunement series 1. The Merkba in the center helps
as a generator for the energy exchange for healing and transformation.
Prints of these are available in my shop
In history it is said that the merkaba is the divine vehicle allegedly used by the ascended masters. Allowing a person to ascend or descend into higher or lower world.  Though the merkaba is much more than just a vehicle of ascension. It seems it can be really a vehicle for meditation transport to anything since this is a primal pattern created by all things in the universe both visible and invisible.

A better translation of this word is “mer” which means light, “ka” means spirit, and “ba” means body. So this essentially means it is a vehicle for the light spirit body, which can transport ones spiritual body from one dimension to another for study or growth.

The merkaba consists of two equally sized, interlocked tetrahedrons of light with a common center. Where one tetrahedron points up and the other down. This point symmetric in form is then called a “stella octangula” or stellated octahedron which can also be obtained by extending the faces of a regular octahedron until they intersect again.

Drunvalo Melchizedek describes this figure as a “star tetrahedron” since it can be viewed as a three dimensional version of the Star of David. When imagining the two superimposed star tetrahedrons counter rotating in movement with each other along with some specific “prana” breathing technique it is taught that a person can activate a non-visible “flying saucer” like energy field around the human body so that it is anchored near the base of the spine. Once activated this field is said to be capable of carrying ones consciousness directly to higher or even lower dimensions.
There is a very specific teaching of spherical breathing using 18 breaths that was given to us be Drunvalo Melchizedek which I hope to release in more depth in an upcoming article or video.
The term markaba is also a Hebrew word for “chariot” and has been used in the bible in Ezekiel 1:4-26 and refers to the throne or chariot of God, and the vehicle used by the four Cherubim to reach our dimension. Some of the earliest mentions of the merkaba were through prophetic visions of God in the heavens and used by the heavenly creatures surrounding God. 

Sets 1 and 2 of my Attunement Series. They can be interchanged and flipped. One of my favorite series. Available in my shine shop.

In more modern times there are classes and workshops given for Merkaba Light Activations. In which the learner will have a chance to be walked through activating their own personal merkaba with proper breathing techniques and meditation. For more information on such classes or workshops feel free to look them up in your local area or contact Guide Nick Bryce via Project Bring Me to Life, who also holds Merkaba Monday events at the Universe Building in Detroit Michigan.

Malachite – The Power Crystal

What is Malachite you ask? It is one of my favorite crystals!

Malachite has a beautiful rich green color similar to that of very healthy grass or a pretty pine tree.  It is actually made of a carbonate copper mixture. Malachite can also have some black spots or bands which simply adds to its beauty in my opinion.

Don’t be to fooled by its beauty though, this stone is POWERFUL and the dust from an unpolished piece can also be toxic if not handled properly.
It is said that malachite should be used by an experienced crystal or energy healer and will often find it’s owner at the right time. This stone is very important to cleanse every full moon and as much as possible. It absorbs negativity around it and can start to emit it at a powerful rate if not cleansed frequently and no one wants their negativity amplified.
Malachite is said to be the power and transformation stone. Malachite helps balance pure love, spiritual evolution, and “female monthly problems.” This stone will bring transformation in a positive way again and again if used properly.  Malachite is also a protection stone, it guards against radiation of all kinds, clears electromagnetic pollution and heals earth energies. It is also said to aide you in fear of travel. Of the current reality and the astral realm.

Malachite is dedicated to the heart chakra located near the center of the breastbone, it regulates our interaction with the external world and controls what we embrace and what we resist most. Malachite also stimulates dream state and brings memories more vividly to life.

Malachite is one of my all time favorite stones. I've used it for healing and transformation of myself and in my family. I actually received my malachite heart in the mail the day my Grandmother went into the hospital during one of her last battles. That heart stayed in my pocket for 6 months and I used it many times to help cleanse her heart chakra and balance energies in the room.  The day my Grandmother passed away the heart literally jumped out of my hand and hit the ground, and broke.  This heart was sturdy and has hit the ground before. Where it fell from wasn’t more than about 2 feet from the ground and it broke into two pieces, She now has a piece of my heart with her forever and Malachite will forever remain one of my favorite crystals.

Feel free to e-mail me for a custom order. :
