Crown Chakra – Top of Head
Sacred Geometry – Merkaba – Star of Life
Meaning: The Merkaba represents the crown chakra and our connection to the stars. The word Merkaba is Hebrew for chariot that carries man’s soul between heaven and earth. The Merkaba (mer = light, ka = spirit, and ba = body) also represents the joining together of our human body with the soul/chakra body. The downward pointing triangle represents the three lower chakras, the upward pointing triangle represents the three upper chakras. They merge at the midpoint within the heart chakra.
The crown chakra opens us beyond our self. Call it Great Mystery, the Unmanifest or God. There are as many names for God as there are stars in the sky. Indigenous cultures believe we came from the stars and will return to the stars.
The Merkaba legend is written in the Book of Ezekiel where the prophet Ezekiel experienced a series of seven visions of the seven heavens during a twenty-two year period.
The Merkaba is seen as the throne of Metatron, who holds the Book of Secrets to the Garden of Eden. Metatron sits at the top of the Tree of Life diagram that consists of eleven Sefirot that mirror each other revealing and receiving information for the liberation of the soul. This mirroring effect creates 22 aspects of the infinite, self-giving, radiant one.
Message: The Merkaba reminds us that our soul comes from the stars and will return to the stars. It is time for you to honor your star lineage and remember that even your physical body originated from the stars. Go outside and see which stars or star systems speak to your soul. Ask your soul to journey to them during dreamtime for insights that can help you during this lifetime on earth.
“The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff.” - Carl Sagan -
