The latest addition to my library of meditations is entitled Opening Chakras and Activating the Merkaba. For some weeks in my morning meditations, I began seeing a human figure at the center of a vibrant ever-moving geometric pattern. I recognized the energy field as the Merkaba, (also spelled Merkabah), an ancient Hebrew word for our energetic body, a term that literally means mer (light) ka (spirit) ba (body).
The Merkaba is often represented as two intersecting pyramids, base to base. Hebrew scriptures portray it as a chariot to heaven. A metaphorical understanding is the Merkaba “takes you to heaven.” Personally, I get the impression that our human earthly vehicle is powered by the Source energy perceived as the double tetrahedron Merkaba and chakra system. The YouTube metaphysical maven, Teal Swan, offers this overview of the Merkaba.
Though slow in coming, more people are beginning to see themselves as energetic life forms. Indeed, everything can be perceived in energetic patterns. One of the newest series on GAIA TV is Sacred Geometry: Spiritual Science with Robert J. Gilbert, founder of the Vesica Institute Holistic Studies of Biogeometry. The show takes a deep dive into the study of the human energy fields. Gilbert is one of a growing number of scientists and scholars bringing together ancient symbols and modern technology to further understand the human experience.
The Opening Chakras and Activating the Merkaba Meditation is a tool to help you “turn on your lights.” Activating your personal energy grid raises your frequency, which can have a beneficial effect on your health, mood, relationships and connection to the divine. I hope you enjoy it.
One of my favorite moments in the life of Jesus is when he was awakened from a deep sleep on a boat by his frightened disciples as they thrashed about in a stormy sea. Mark 4:35-41 NIV
Jesus Calms the Storm
35 That day when evening came, he said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side.” 36 Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him. 37 A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. 38 Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?”
39 He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.
40 He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”
41 They were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!”
Taking Authority Over Weather
Now when you live in Oklahoma for thirty years, as I did, you have plenty of opportunities to take a cue from Jesus and take authority over storms. Praying about weather conditions is a long-established practice for me. Of course, measuring the effectiveness of said prayers is fairly impossible. However, I did have one enlightening afternoon that has encourage me to stay the course.
About three years ago, I was living in Honolulu by then. My daughter, Sara, who lives in St. Louis, MO, with her family, sent me an urgent text.
Pray for Will and Gracie. They are on the school bus trying to get home and a big storm is here. It’s knocked down trees on their road and everything is flooding.
At the time Will was 10 and Gracie 7. I immediately took a deep dive into prayer mode and connected quickly. I saw Will comforting a very scared Grace, huddled together on the bus. My guides sent me instructions to help the bus driver maintain calm and control. Then I began to work on the storm itself. Thanks to the magic of satellite technology, I pulled up the weather map. They were in the reddest region of the tempest. Images formed in my mind of the clouds breaking up and moving away. It was if I was playing my part in a larger orchestration of storm manipulation. In real time I saw the satellite images forming a horseshoe of lessening intensity over the children’s neighborhood. Energy poured through me, along with images of clouds, wind, rain and sky. The satellite picture looked as if great hands were parting the clouds, pushing the red zone away from them.
I sighed in relief when another text reported the children home, safe and sound. A good Samaritan had arrived in the road with a chainsaw to clear the tree. The rain had abated in the area for a while. The bus driver had made wise decisions. Sadly, the flooding had been so severe on their street that two horses had been washed away.
Since that incident, I’ve taken my intervention for weather and my connection to our vibrant planet more seriously. The intelligence and spirit of earth is often called Gaia and I speak with her daily. A couple of months ago I received a beautiful image of Mother Gaia as a celestial figure, pregnant with earth in her womb. The atmosphere around her, a starry shawl and swirl of fractal lights. Magnificent.
I longed to capture some of that image in a meditation and it finally came together for me. I was also instructed to add a segment of visualization for rain for the southwest United States.
In John 14:12 Jesus said we could do the same things he demonstrated and even greater things. The growing awareness of the power of group consciousness certainly encourages like minded people to come together in the quantum fields to affect our world.
Join me and others in the Mother Earth Meditation with Visualization for Rain for Southwest United States.
The power of mass consciousness is explained and explored in many venues. Christians look toward Jesus’ words in Matthew 18:20 as inspiration for group prayer, For where two or more gather in my name, there I am with them. Then there is the 100th Monkey Effect, a controversial theory based on observation of Japanese monkeys during the mid-twentieth century, where a young monkey began cleaning the dirt off the sweet potato staple of the primate’s diet. Other monkeys learned the behavior. After a while monkeys on other islands began washing their potatoes. Author Lyall Watson made the conjecture that there was a tipping point of mass consciousness in his book Lifetide: The Biology of the Unconscious—the 100th monkey effect was born.
The EOC Institute promotes mass meditation for world peace. Their website cites experiment statistics conducted in war-torn areas where mass meditations for world peace appears to have a tangible effect–
An experiment in the 1980’s, during the height of the Lebanon war, sought to discover whether meditation could reduce war. When 1,000 people in Jerusalem meditated on world peace, war deaths in Lebanon went down by over 75 percent. Not only did war deaths go down, but crime, traffic collisions, fires, and other destructive events also went down on the days the group meditated.
Personally, I’ve see the power of group prayer through my spirit teams. We love to share those “praise reports.” Our favorite prayer project is baby XiXi, born prematurely, barely more than a pound. Plugged in, monitored, fragile, her chances at life weren’t good. Our team relentlessly prayed for her for months. She’s defied predictions of developmental problems. Now past a year, her walking and talking is downright precocious.
Given the world’s precarious state, a leap of higher consciousness for peace, love and hope seems more crucial than ever. I asked Spirit for inspiration for a new meditation. Mary Magdalene stepped forward in my mind’s eye. One quiet morning I was able to go into an undisturbed meditative state to record the Higher Consciousness Meditation for World Peace. I saw a great heavenly chamber filled with countless people joining together spiritually to raise the consciousness of the globe. You are welcome to join the throng and add your spiritual power toward a better world.
A few weeks ago my sleep was disturbed by annoying, bizarre dreams. One night I sat up about three a.m. and realized I was being psychically assaulted by mischievous entities. It wasn’t surprising as I’m currently involved in the founding of YWAM (Youth With A Mission) Santa Cruz. My daughter and son-in-law have heeded the spiritual call to the area to head up a YWAM base. While many doors have opened up to bring the shining light of YWAM ministry to the area, it has also stirred up established negative entities that have set up residence here for many years. Drug addiction, among other soul-sucking problems, are rife in Santa Cruz, despite the beautiful surrounding mountainous scenery. As the first class of YWAM Santa Cruz launched in early April, we noticed an array of obstacles and annoying distractions occurring on the campus with the staff.
That particular night at 3 a.m., I recognized the outside source of my dreams. While I’m not much on doing “spiritual battle,” as I believe that simply invites more “battle,” I do believe in taking spiritual authority. Creating a sacred space that is simply too high in frequency for lower entities and filled with heavenly hosts is more my style. That night in bed, I called on my spiritual guides and protectors to shield me from unwanted psychic assault. I told whatever was bothering me to please go toward the light and be released in love. My turbulent dreams disappeared.
Interestingly, I was soon led to a zoom class from the Theosophical Society led by Kurt Leland on creating sacred spaces. His lecture was very enlightening and thought provoking. Most people never think about the conflicting entities swirling around them. Consequently, their defenses are down and lower entities can just move right in, feeding on the energy of their unwitting hosts.
This experience inspired me to record a meditation to create a sacred sleeping space in both the physical and spiritual realms. Sleep should be a time of deep mental rest and bodily rejuvenation. Sadly, a good night’s sleep is rare in today’s world.
I’m happy to report that I’m sleeping much better. Each night I take conscious authority over my sleep cycle, plus I have followed the instructions from the Kurt Leland class to make my bedroom a high frequency sacred space.
I encourage you to explore the methods of creating your own sacred space. I hope this meditation will serve as a useful tool to enjoy the deep sleep you need to function at your highest potential and live your best life.
Bright Blessings, Dana
