WHAT DOES MER-KA-BA MEANS ?
The word Mer-Ka-Ba is made up of three smaller words: Mer, Ka and Ba. These words, as we are using them, come from ancient Egyptian.
There are several pronunciations of Merkaba such as Merkabah, Merkava, and Merkavah. We generally pronounce the word with the emphasis on the second syllable: Mer-KA-ba. Others pronounce it with equal accent on each syllable such as: Mer-ka-ba.
Mer refers to a specific kind of light that was understood in Egypt during the 18th Dynasty following the reorientation of religions toward the worship of a one God of all creation.
"Mer" was seen as two counter-rotating fields of light spinning in the same space. These fields are generated when a person performs specific breathing patterns. Ka refers to the individual spirit of a person. Ba refers to the spirit's interpretation of its particular reality. In the human reality, Ba is usually defined as the body or physical reality. In other realities where spirits don't have bodies, Ba refers to their concepts or interpretation of reality in the realm in which they exist.
What is the Merkaba?
The Merkaba is a counter-rotating field of light generated from the spinning of specific geometric forms that simultaneously affects one's spirit and body. It is a vehicle that can aid mind, body and spirit to access and experience other planes of reality or potentials of life. In fact, the Merkaba is even much more than this. Those who have taken merkaba workshop and have learned the merkaba meditation have stated that they have learned more about themselves, connected with their higher selves, and moved to new levels of awareness. The Merkaba is a tool that helps humans reach their full potential.
The Merkaba is a crystalline energy field that is comprised of specific sacred geometries that align the mind, body, and heart together. This energy field created from sacred geometry extends around the body for a distance of 55 feet. These geometric energy fields normally spin around our bodies at close to the speed of light, but for most of us they have slowed down or stopped spinning entirely due to a lack of attention and use. When this field is reactivated and spinning properly, it is called a Merkaba. A fully activated Merkaba looks just like the structure of a galaxy.
The Merkaba 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. When the Merkaba meditation is performed correctly, the Merkaba fluidly integrates our feminine (intuitive, receptive) and masculine (active, dynamic) aspects of our mind and spirit.
What will happen when I learn and practice this meditation?
When you learn about the Merkaba, you will not only intellectually understand the geometric fields, but you will personally experience them and feel them tangibly around your body. These geometric energy fields around our bodies can be turned on in a particular way, which is also connected to our breath. The Merkaba meditation incorporates a 17-breath process along with mudras (hand positions) that are a key to the correct use of the Merkaba.
Activating the Merkaba through the 17-breath meditation will result in deeper contact with your Higher Self and it will strengthen every aspect of your life. You will be better able to relieve your stress, balance your mind and emotions, and heal yourself if the Merkaba is used often and consistently. Most importantly, you will experience and remember your intimate connection with God / Nature in a safe and nurturing environment.
Learning the steps of the Merkaba meditation alone is not enough to fully experience the benefits of an activated Merkaba. Anyone can learn technical steps through a book or video. There is at least one other factor that is even more important than learning the Merkaba meditation itself -- the opening of the heart and the experiencing of Divine Love. It is Divine or Unconditional Love that is the primary factor that allows the Merkaba to become a living field of light. Without Divine Love, the Merkaba will only be a series of steps and will have many limitations.
In our workshop we explore special ways of opening the heart to reawaken compassion, unconditional love, and inner harmony so that you can have direct experience with Divine Love while learning to activate your Merkaba. Direct experience of our greater potential gives us the opportunity to go far beyond what words and books can teach. Our workshops are experiential, while still giving the necessary "left brain" information required for a full understanding of the course material. Most participants experience energy sensations and heart openings unlike anything they have ever experienced. Strong bonding between students often occurs and the feeling of family nurtures the group. Participants discover things about themselves that they hadn't remembered or didn't know before.
ADVANTAGES OF MERKABA MEDITATION CENTRE
Buddha was asked: “What have you gained from Meditation?” He replied: “Nothing.” “However”, Buddha said, “let me tell you what I lost : Anger, Anxiety, Depression, Insecurity, Fear of Old, Age and Death.”
Anger, Anxiety, Depression, Insecurity, ill-health is something like darkness - which you can see, which you can feel, which can obstruct your way but which does not exist. It has no positivity. It is simply an absence, an absence of light.
Diseases and sufferings are only an absence of awareness.
The room is full of darkness; you want the darkness to leave the room. You can do everything in your power - push it out, beat it out - but you are not going to succeed. Strangely enough, you will be defeated by something which does not exist. Exhausted, your mind will say the darkness is so powerful that it is not within your capacity to dispel it, to expel it. But that conclusion is not right.
Just a small candle has to be brought in. You don't have to expel the darkness. You don't have to fight with it - that is sheer stupidity. Just bring in a small candle, and the darkness is not found anymore. Not that it goes out - it cannot go out, because in the first place it does not exist. Neither was it in, nor does it go out.
The light comes in, the light goes out; it has positive existence. You can light a candle and there is no darkness; you can blow out the candle and there is darkness. To do anything with darkness, you will have to do something with light - very strange, very illogical, but what can you do? Such is the nature of things.
You can bring a little awareness, a little consciousness, a little light. Forget completely about the problems in life; concentrate totally on bringing alertness into your being. And the moment your consciousness has become a flame, concentrated, you will not be able to find the problems. All problems will disappear.
Merkaba Meditation is the candle. Practice is the light.
