The Ultimate Guide To Merkaba Meditation August 24, 2017

Merkaba is the answer to all your life’s problems. I am not kidding. It is. Merkaba meditation is an incredible energy process that helps you realize your fullest capabilities.

The name ‘Merkaba’ might sound alien, but it is an inherent quality of your being. It is deep, beautiful, and loving.

Merkaba meditation opens up infinite possibilities of your existence, elevates your being, and helps you enjoy life wholeheartedly.

Not too clear, is it? Well, you must go through our entire comprehensive guide to Merkaba meditation to understand the concept. Go on, have a look.

What Is The Meaning Of Merkaba? 

Ah! Such an unusual name, right? Let’s break it down and figure it out. Let’s divide the word Merkaba into three parts – Mer-Ka-Ba. The word is of Egyptian origin.

Similar to the Egyptian mummies, Merkaba is intriguing and layered. To put it simply, ‘Mer’ means a light that rotates within itself, ‘Ka’ means spirit, and ‘Ba’ means the physical body.

The parts have many other similar meanings, and so does the word ‘Merkaba.’ It is also known as Merkavah, Merkava, etc.

Merkaba is the primal pattern of existence. It is mentioned in the Bible as an ascending energy. In ancient Egypt, Mer-Ka-Ba was considered as three separate words. Merkaba must be turned on by meditation, and that’s what we are going to learn here through Merkaba meditation.

Energy surrounds your body. Energy fields, in fact, and they take the form of geometric shapes. The energy fields come from within your body and surround it. They rotate around your body at high speeds.

But sadly, the high-speed rotation has slowed down for a lot of us, and for some, it has completely stopped due to the pressures of everyday life that have made your mind, body, and spirit polluted.

If your energy fields become inactive, then that is cause for worry. You will not feel completely alive and miss out on the little enriching details of life. Merkaba meditation helps you recharge your energy fields and become fully alive.

Merkaba meditation involves breathing patterns, changes in the mind, body, and heart, and altering your perception. It is a journey towards enlightenment.

Merkaba is present at the base of your spine, affecting your Kundalini energy present nearby. Merkaba meditation makes it easier for the Kundalini energy to rise and spread across the body by unblocking channels and cleansing the chakras.

Merkaba meditation aligns the energy fields of your body and enables easier energy movement. The meditation elevates you to a higher consciousness and takes you beyond the limitations of daily life.

It is an advanced meditation technique and is recommended to be studied and practiced carefully under a certified guide.

Take a look at its procedure below.

Inhale and open your heart to feel love for all lives. Visualize a bright white light surrounding your body. As you inhale, place your thumb lightly onto your first finger and part the other fingers. Keep your palm facing upwards.

Breathing in must be done in a yogic manner. Breathe in through your nostrils, first from the stomach, then the diaphragm, and then the chest. Do it in one swift swipe.

Exhale with your abdomen drawn in and lift it as you breathe out. Keep your chest firm. Relax after exhalation.

Keep your breathing pattern rhythmic. Count 7 seconds as you inhale and do the same while you exhale.

Move your eyeballs slightly towards each other as you exhale and then gently look up. You will feel a tingling sensation in between your eyes. Look down after this – you will feel an electric sensation going down your spine.

The seventh breath begins with a new style of breathing. Feel the love in your heart and inhale. Visualize a tube running from above your head to down below your feet.

Feel a pranic energy moving from the top of the tube towards the navel and the same moving upwards from the bottom of the tube towards the navel. As you inhale, the two points meet and expand.

Get your thumb, first, and second fingers together and keep your palms up. Breathe in and out deeply in a yogic rhythmic manner without holding your breath at any point.

8. Eighth Breath

Inhale naturally as your lungs empty out on their own in the previous exhalation. The pranic energy at your navel continues to grow in size. As you exhale, the pranic energy reaches its maximum size.

Keep the rhythmic breathing pattern going on with the same hand mudra.

9. Ninth Breath

As you inhale and exhale in a similar breathing pattern and the same mudra, the pranic energy gets concentrated at the navel region as it cannot grow any bigger.

With the inhalation and exhalation, the pranic energy gets brighter and brighter. Keep the rhythmic breathing pattern going on with the same hand mudra.

As you inhale, the pranic energy becomes brighter, reaches its maximum limit and becomes a blinding ball of white light. As you exhale, make a small hole with your lips and blow out air with pressure.

As you exhale, the white sphere extends through your fingertips and encloses your body in a sphere of white light. Keep the rhythmic breathing pattern going on with the same hand mudra.

Feel the love in your heart and inhale. As you do, shift the original meeting point of the pranic energy from the navel to the sternum. The brighter large sphere that contains the original field moves along to the sternum within the energy tube.

Change your mudra by placing the left palm on the right palm for males and vice versa for females. Breathe rhythmically and comfortably. Focus on the pranic flow in your body meeting at the sternum and expanding. Feel the breath, energy flow, and your connection to life.

The last three breaths are crucial. Do this only when you connect with your higher self.

15. Fifteenth Breath

Fill your heart with love and become aware of the three tetrahedrons superimposed on each other. One tetrahedron does not move usually and is fixed in the body.

One is male and is electrical. It represents the human mind. This tetrahedron rotates counter-clockwise.

The third tetrahedron is a magnetic female one that rotates clockwise, and it represents the human emotions.

Keep your hands held and breathe in, thinking in your mind that the two movable tetrahedrons should rotate at equal speeds.

Make a hole with your lips and exhale with the star tetrahedrons spinning in opposite directions with equal speed. The experience of Merkaba begins from here on.

Back To TOC

16. Sixteenth Breath

Keeping the same folded arms mudra, inhale. And as you exhale through the mouth, similar to the fifteenth breath, you can feel the speed of the tetrahedrons doubling, and they form a disk around your body at the base of the spine. The disk is wobbly and needs stability.

Back To TOC

17. Seventeenth Breath

Keeping the same hand mudra and feeling unconditional love for life, breathe in, telling your mind to increase the Merkaba to nine-tenths the speed of light. Exhale through the mouth in the same manner as the fifteenth breath.

Breathe in and out in a balanced and yogic way. Exhale forcefully and stabilize your Merkaba.

Back To TOC
