Stress-Relief with Merkaba Meditation
There’s no getting away from it: modern life is stressful. Whether it’s work, relationships, family or just current events in the world, there are so many things causing us all stress. You can probably feel that stress every day, and it manifests in both mental and physical forms.
It’s no wonder so many people are turning to stress beating practices like meditation. If you’re one of them and looking for something new to you (but rooted in an ancient past), Merkaba meditation might be what you need.
This form of meditation is based on using the power of the mind to unblock the invisible energy that surrounds us all. And to harness that energy to create a healthier, more balanced mind and body.
Here’s what you need to know.
Where Did Merkaba Medication Come From?
The word “Merkaba” actually comes from ancient Egyptian and combines three different words.
The first, “mer” means rotating light, which many cultures believe our spirit or aura is. The second, “ka” is the Egyptian word for the soul, and the third, “ba” is the name for our earthly form.
So, the combination of these three words is a symbol for combining the three essential elements that make us who we are – and Merkaba meditation is the key that we use to unlock this light and potential in ourselves. It is a meditation system based on sacred geometry and ancient mysticism, but it is still just as relevant today as it was all those years ago.
So, like other forms of meditation, yoga, and similar practices, this type of meditation uses the power of the mind to improve our health and well-being and the way we interact with the world around us.
How Does Merkaba Meditation Work?
As the ancient Egyptians first pointed out, we’re all surrounded by light and energy that rotates at high speed. However, thanks to the pressures of modern life, for many of us, that rotation has slowed significantly. Merkaba meditation helps you to refocus your energy and get it back to the rotation it should have. Of course, anything that helps us to return to a natural, healthier state is beneficial to our mental and physical health.
What Do You Do During Merkaba Meditation?
As you work through each of the breaths, you will focus on the energy travelling through your body, allowing you to unlock each chakra, balancing your body and mind, and allowing your energy to expel and resist the stress of the modern world.
It can take some time to master the breathing and visualization of Merkaba meditation. Still, when you do, you will start to feel the light travel through your body, opening and unlocking all of the chakras and allowing you to reconnect with those essential parts of yourself.
When all of the chakras are unlocked and your body filled with light, you will be able to free your energy from the blockages and barriers that cause it to slow and causes you to feel tired, stressed and troubled.
What Are the Benefits of Merkaba Meditation?
Like most forms of meditation, Merkaba meditation allows you to focus your attention and thoughts internally. You can better control and strengthen the energy that already surrounds you by doing that. Merkaba meditation uses 18 special breaths that all unlock different chakras.
Merkaba meditation is fantastic for managing stress, but it can also help you cope with emotional losses, detox, and purify your mind.
This kind of meditation is designed to allow you to expand your awareness and consciousness, allowing you to connect better with yourself and the world around you. It will enable you to see better the infinite possibilities that life, your own body, and the universe present.
When practised regularly, Merkaba meditation makes you more receptive and intuitive, relieves stress and balances your mind. It is healing and also helps practitioners to connect with their higher selves.
Finally, Merkaba also gives you more energy and a deeper, stronger connection to your life and your world.
Where Can You Learn Merkaba Meditation?
The good news is that because Merkaba meditation has been around for so long, there’s no shortage of information and opportunities to learn.
Many meditation practitioners offer classes in Merkaba, both in-person and online. There are also many videos and other resources online, and you can find books in both hard copy and electronic formats that can help you to learn this grounding, stress-relieving form of meditation.
Once you have mastered Merkaba meditation, you can practice this almost anywhere. As long as you have a quiet space and some time to reconnect yourself with the universe and your energy, you can take advantage of the benefits of this kind of meditation. You can also do this alone, with people, either in a class setting or with a loved one or friend.
We all have energy that needs to be unlocked and recharged, and Merkaba meditation is a great way to do that.
What Do You Need to Practice Merkaba Meditation?
The best thing about most kinds of meditation is that you don’t need special equipment to practice this ancient art. Some comfortable clothes and a quiet room with some sitting space are all you need to get started.
Over time, you might want to add tools like crystals and talismans to help you unlock and focus your energy. Many people find that using incense and similar aromatics can help them find the sense of peace they need to focus their attention inwards.
Some people find that using soft music or even nature sounds help in their Merkaba meditation journey, but many prefer silence.
It is all about you, what makes you most comfortable and enables you to reach the state of peace and transcendence where you can feel and connect with the energy that surrounds you all the time.
