The Merkaba is a sacred geometry symbol composed of two interlocking triangular pyramids. Its traditional Egyptian translation breaks it down into three different words — Mer (Light), Ka (Spirit), Ba (Body). It is a special symbol, which represents our spiritual body surrounded by a protective light field. When integrated into our spiritual practice, it helps us to connect with the true essence of our higher self, earth and spirit. it works to help us elevate our consciousness and heal our subtle bodies from the conditioning we've consciously and unconsciously endured.
Geometrically, the merkaba represents fire and the inner passion we have within. The upward facing pyramid represents connection with spirit, the divine masculine and spins clockwise while the downward facing pyramid represents our connection with earth, the divine feminine and spins counter clockwise. Together, this dual energy combines to create unity within.
Some other amazing qualities of the Merkaba include:
- Aids in realizing your full potential and encourages personal growth physically and spiritually
- Reignites passion for life and connecting with personal gifts
- The sacred geometry is connected closely with the solar plexus (personal power) & crown (spiritual connection) chakra and can be activated through activities like meditation, prayer and breath work
- Acts as a "northern star" — awakening the true essence within us, reminding us that we have everything we need within ourselves
- And so much more!
