The L0veVibe Global Meditation of Sunday September 20, 2009 will focus on the symbol of the Merkaba or Merkabah. We invite you to integrate this idea into your regular meditation practice, or even to devote your session to it. Contemplate it, feel it, paint it, sing it, experience it and -most of all- Love it.

Please remember the purpose is connection, so if you do not resonate with a symbol presented here, then feel free to choose your own. Why we are choosing this symbol is explained in the post Inspiration.

The Merkaba is usually depicted in 2D as two overlapping triangles, one pointing up and one pointing down. In 3D we can imagine two tetrahedra in the same composition. In addition, imagine one tetrahedron spinning clockwise and the other spinning counterclockwise, producing a counter-rotating field of light and energy.

The Merkaba is a structure of spinning light similar to the chakra system, and both are part of the Lightbody. The Merkaba functions as an interdimensional gateway for higher consciousness down into material incarnation. It acts as the stabilizing foundation of the bridge that goes from the Lightbody to the physical body. Imagine the base chakra (grounding) to be located in the center of the Merkaba triangles.

With time (growth), the Merkaba allows for the raising of the vibration of the physical body. This ultimately culminates in Ascension, Integration and Unification, which is accessible for every"body" who focuses on Love and Unison. The etymological root for the word Merkabah means "chariot" and it is indeed the natural vehicle "to ride" up the dimensional ladder towards the One place of Light and Love.

Thus one spinning triangle represents the constant flow of energy downwards (towards denser manifestation) and the other spinning triangle represents the constant flow of energy upwards (towards lighter manifestation). Together they form the Cycle of Life. In the Bible this was depicted by the Seraphim "burning" angels appearing like flashes of fire continuously ascending and descending.

The Sanskrit word Vimāna ( विमान ) combines the following meanings: traversing, aircraft, self-driven flying throne or palace, (secret part of) the temple, and balance. The "chariots of the gods" occur thus not only in the Bible but also in Sanskrit epics.
