Have you wondered what those multi-side carved crystals were as you explored your local spiritual center? You are not alone. Drawn by the energy of both the stone and shape, many people pick up the sculpted stone, a Merkaba and ask: â€œWhat is this for; how do I use it?â€
The name, Merkaba carries an important meaning isÂ Mer-rotating fields of light,Â Ka-spirit, andÂ Ba-soul. In Hebrew, Merkaba literally translates as â€Chariotâ€. Merkaba is often referred to as a vehicle for ascension. The spirit body is transported to other dimensions by activating the chariot of light.
The Merkaba is comprised of tetrahedrons made by the intersection of two, three-sided pyramids. This shape is an important element of sacred geometry; the mathematical structures of creation found in nature. These foundational forms align the individual and collective mind, body and spirit as we create through intention and energy.
Merbaka in this context symbolizes the counter rotating or spinning energy fields of humankind; energy fields which unite us with our Higher Self and the Divine Consciousness. The Merkaba is a tool provided for humanity to unlock the full soul potential by creating a mechanism to unlock the wisdom of the universe and accessing the gifts of infinite knowledge.
Merging the active, creative force of masculine energy with the intuitive, receptive energy of the feminine the Merbaka portrays harmony. The Merkaba has been described by scholars as representation of the galaxy; brilliant and star like.
Reflected in crystalline form the focus is enhanced by the individual stone vibrations. The Merkaba shape is readily found in variations of quartz: clear or rose quartz along with amethyst. Clear quartz is considered a master healer stone, while rose quartz embodies the essence of unconditional love and amethyst spiritual development.
