My good friend just gave me a Merkaba pendant. So beautiful and even cooler now that I've done a little research on the meaning. You all know me. It doesn't take much for me to grasp onto ideas that will help me be the best I can be and the most aware I can be of myself and what is around me. Isn't it beautiful?
Here is a description of the Merkaba that I found at the KA Gold Jewelry site.
Merkaba for healing and balance
The varieties of benefits of using the Merkaba are greatly varied:
It is a most powerful healing and protection tool. By utilizing the ancient Prana breathing technique, we are able to restore the Prana flow through the pineal gland at the center of our brain. This revived use of our gland, which has been virtually dormant for 13,000 years allows the heightened use of our telepathic and extra sensory perception abilities.
The Merkaba balances and revives the activities between the two sides of our brain. Such training strengthens our sensitivities and mental abilities, (at this time we use only 5-10% of our brain). The Merkaba assists us in our spiritual growth .It connects us with our higher self (i.e. ourselves on a higher level of consciousness).
The Merkaba enables us to feel unconditional love thus healing ourselves as well as others. It gives us the possibility of creating any kind of harmonious reality we desire. The Merkaba can be "programmed" to do anything (the only drawback being our own belief and imagination).
The Merkaba is also a tool that can be used to transcend into other dimensions. Revived studies and practices of the Merkaba are emerging all over the world after so many years of being suppressed from different sources, including the Old Testament, Kabala and even the traditional Tarot cards.
The Merkaba pendant is a powerful symbol and reminder to those wearing it of the power of the Merkaba and its special healing and protective characteristics.
I did a bunch of research today on the meditations and breathing that can be done to help achieve harmony and it goes right along with my need to just be and relax and all of that stuff so I'm hoping by wearing my Merkaba, it will remind me to BREATH and BE :)
