Merkabah, also spelled Merkaba, is the divine light vehicle allegedly used by ascended masters to connect with and reach those in tune with the higher realms. “Mer” means Light. “Ka” means Spirit. “Ba” means Body. Mer-Ka-Ba means the spirit/body surrounded by counter-rotating fields of light, (wheels within wheels), spirals of energy as in DNA, which transports spirit/body from one dimension to another.
You might have seen this before ? by Leonardo Da Vinci:
The word Merkaba or Merkava – Hebrew ‘Chariot’ or ‘to ride an animal, in a chariot’ – is used in the Bible (Ezekiel 1:4-26) to refer to the throne-chariot of God, the four-wheeled vehicle driven by four Cherubim, each of which has four wings and four faces (of a man, lion, ox, and eagle). Four means ‘time’ in alchemy.
The Biblical Merkaba in Depth
According to the verses in Ezekiel and its attendant commentaries, the analogy of the Merkaba image consists of a chariot made of many angels being driven by the “Likeness of a Man.” Four angels form the basic structure of the chariot. These angels are called the “Chayot”.
The bodies of the “Chayot” are like that of a human being, but each of them had four faces, corresponding to the four directions the chariot can go (north, east south and west). The faces are that of a man, a lion, an ox (later changed to a child or cherub) and an eagle. Since there are four angels and each has four faces, there are a total of 16 faces. Each Chayot angel also has four wings.
Two of these wings spread across the length of the chariot and connected with the wings of the angel on the other side.
This created a sort of ‘box’ of wings that formed the perimeter of the chariot. With the remaining two wings, each angel covered its own body.
Below, but not attached to the feet of the “Chayot” angels are other angels that are shaped like wheels. These wheel angels, which are described as “a wheel inside of a wheel”, are called “Ophannim” – wheels, cycles or ways).
These wheels are not directly under the chariot, but are nearby and along its perimeter much like the wheels of a car. The angel with the face of the man is always on the east side and looks up at the “Likeness of a Man” that drives the chariot. The “Likeness of a Man” sits on a throne made of saphire.
The Bible later makes mention of a third type of angel found in the Merkaba called “Seraphim” (lit. burning) angels. These angels appear like flashes of fire continuously ascending and decending.
These “Seraphim” angels functioned somewhat like pistons in that they powered the movement of the chariot. In the hierarchy of these angels, “Seraphim” are the highest, that is, closest to God, followed by the “Chayot”, which are followed by the “Ophannim”.
The chariot is in a constant state of motion, and the energy behind this movement runs according to this heirarchy. The movement of the “Ofanim” is controlled by the “Chayot” while the movement of the “Chayot” is controlled by the “Serafim”. The movement of all the angels of the chariot are controlled by the “Likeness of a Man” on the Throne.
