The Merkaba symbol (also spelled Merkabah) translates to light, spirit, body. The symbol consists of 2 intersecting tetrahedrons that rotate in opposite directions, this creates an energy field that is commonly referred to as a light body.
Merkavah mysticism is an early school of Judaism, practiced between 100 BCE – 1000 CE. The teachings were based on visions found in the Book of Ezekiel and hekhalot literature. These stories speak of ascents into the heavens and to the Throne of God.
Everyone has access to their own personal Merkaba or vehicle of light with practice in meditation. It is said that once one has access to their Merkaba it can provide a powerful protection and transport your consciousness to higher dimensions. The Merkavah symbol can remind us of the potential power we hold when we unite our bodies energy to Source.
This symbol combines opposing energies in perfect harmony and has allegedly been used by ascended masters to connect to higher realms. In modern esoteric teachings, the Merkaba is considered an interdimensional vehicle. It is also known as a star tetrahedron and can be imagined as a 3-dimensional Star of David.
The star tetrahedron is the basis of the 64 grid tetrahedron also known as the Grid of Life. This is the masculine equivalent to the Flower of Life pattern. As the name suggests, this shape is made up of 64 tetrahedrons. Which as you know is one of the platonic solids.
When the 64-tetrahedron is overlaid on the flower of life this represents a powerful concept; the spheres represent space and the lines represent where space and time come together.
One of the most fascinating aspects of the 64 tetrahedron is the number 64 itself and how it appears throughout the natural world.
Here are a few examples ~
~There are 64 codons in human DNA ~64 is the number of cells we have before the cells start to bifurcate (differentiate) after conception. ~64 is the fundamental number in computer memory and bits of code ~64 is encoded in the Tetragrammaton within the Hebrew Bible, which is the four letter theonym YHWH that means God in Hebrew. ~64 is the number of generations from Adam until Jesus ~64 manifestations of Lord Shiva in Hinduism ~64 squares in chess and checker boards ~64 hexagrams in the I Ching ~64 tantras which is a form of Hinduism ~64 is the maximum number of strokes in any Chinese character
This metaphysical symbol can produce many trees of life which radiate inward, this is why the 64 tetrahedron is symbolic of linking up ones individual paths in harmony with our soul family. It is said that connecting with your soul / star family will amplify each individual’s energy to accomplish and manifest one’s goals. A true symbol of the mastermind principle of harmony with among a group of individuals.
The 13 spheres represent an extremely powerful sacred geometric pattern known as the Fruit of Life, considered the Holy of Holies of Sacred Geometry because it’s hidden within the ancient and well-known Flower of Life pattern.
The fruit of life is composed of 13 spheres; this is actually the 2d representation of a 3d structure Thirteen represents unity and transition between worlds / dimensions.
Those of you who play an instrument know the chromatic scale of 12 notes the thirteenth note is actually repeating the first note but on a higher frequency; when you attain a higher octave you enter a higher dimension. If we connect all the Centers of the 13 circles the result is 78 lines which create a structure known as Metatron’s Cube. This structure contains all five platonic solids, these three-dimensional figures and their different combinations reveal every possible geometric law forming the physical reality we are experiencing.
The spheres of the Fruit of Life represents the female movements or elements of creation and provide the field for the 78 ray like male movements of creation. The geometry of Metatron’s Cube is set to underlie what modern physics calls the quantum vacuum or void and is fundamental to the creation process at the quantum level. What we’re talking about here is what’s been called zero-point, life force or bio force energy.
The Tree of Life is another popular universal symbol it represents numerous systems across varying cultures and religions. Like all the other symbols in this list it is not identified by a single culture and it has been used around the world for centuries.
So what does the Tree of Life represent? A connection to everything including the things we cannot see or the void beyond. It reminds you that you are not alone in the Universe but rather part of a vast interconnected network.
The Tree of Life provides a hierarchical structure for all of the forces in the Universe. It can also be used as a road map of one’s soul. The 10 spheres are called the “Sephiroth” translating to eminiation. These are connected by different paths. The first Sephira on the Tree of Life is at the top. It represents cosmic consciousness. The Sephira at the base represents the material world. The rest of these Sephiroth represent different qualities of the Soul. These can be divided into three pillars; the Pillar of Severity, The pillar of Mildness and the Pillar of Mercy.
The shape known as a ‘Torus’ is a type of vortex. So what is a torus? The word “torus” comes from the Latin word meaning swelling. In sacred geometry it is the first shape to emerge from the Genesis Pattern. The torus is found in everything from atoms, to life forms and even in all cosmic bodies such as stars and galaxies. It is a primary shape in existence.
For many years ‘seers’ have taught that the human aura appears as a series of nested torus formations around the body. Energy flows through the center of the body and loops around to connect the feet and head. The flow from the feet to the head is bi-directional.The energy is flowing through the surface of the torus and inside an in a spiraling pattern, this is why the sacred geometry shape is shown with curves lines throughout the middle, while also adding the illusion of a 3d perspective to the 2d depiction.
The Torus is a 2d depiction of a 3 dimensional shape, like many other sacred geometry forms.
A symbol that has been used to represent new life, rebirth and fertility. The Egg of Life is the second iteration of a process that constructs the Flower of Life. Adding six additional circles to the seed of life you are able to produce the Egg of Life. This can also be formed by the eight spheres contained within the three dimensional Metatron’s Cube.
The three circles that make up the Piscis Eye Trinity are also part of the Vesica Pisces symbol. It can be understood as representative of the different moon cycles: waxing, full, and waning. Sacred in various Neopagan and Goddess traditions, the Piscis Eye Trinity is an powerful, ancient symbol that depicts the sacred trinity and the all-seeing eye.
Metatron’s Cube is also said to symbolize the creation of life itself; the spheres represent the feminine and the straight lines connecting them represent the masculine, as they work together to create a unified whole. This powerful symbol contains the 5 Platonic solids or the 5 elements (Earth, Air, Fire, Water, and Aether), and meditating upon Metatron’s Cube is said to have profound healing powers.
Within the Flower of Life symbol is the image of the Seed of Life, which feels very apropos because all flowers contain seeds. The polygon shapes are believed to represent the feminine and some believe it to be the symbol for creation (7 circles, 7 days, 7 chakras, 7 musical notes). These harmonious, interlocking circles are also said to be the Blueprint of the Universe, while also illustrating mitosis (or the fertilization of an egg and cellular duplication).
One of the world’s most ancient symbols, the Flower of Life is said to represent the divine, mathematical order in all of life. Consisting of evenly spaced, overlapping circles (with a six fold symmetry like a hexagon), some believe the symbol to be a divine, visual expression of life, consciousness, and creation. Leonardo Da Vinci was particularly interested in the form and mathematical proportions of the Flower of Life and its connection to physical space and human consciousness. The Symbol has been found at The Temple of Osiris in Abydos, Egypt, The Forbidden City, in Beijing, China, and many other sacred sites all over the world.
