Merkaba Meditation is a complicated, advanced meditation that is said to take you out of your body and into the fourth dimension. The TL;DR of this post is: Yes, it actually does do this for you, if you do it correctly.
The MER-KA-BA meditation is perhaps the most complex meditation that you will study in your life. While the title asks whether you’ll go to the fourth dimension after Merkaba, it really should say during.
The meditation is said to have been used by the Ancient Egyptians, to access higher dimensions and other realms.
In fact, Drunvalo Melchizedek, who teaches Merkaba Meditation, writes:
You will disappear from this world and reappear in another one that will be your new home for awhile. This is not the end, but the beginning of an ever expanding consciousness returning you HOME to your FATHER.https://in5d.com/drunvalo-melchizedek-the-17-breath-mer-ka-ba-meditation/
Is it true?
I’ve been studying Merkaba for months. And I can confirm that this is true.
But it is only true after months of practice.
And I must point out that I don’t suggest that your physical body will disappear from this realm. But your consciousness will leave your body and you will be off exploring some other place.
As I mentioned, it takes practice. This kind of outcome is not immediate. Or rather, perhaps I ought to rephrase that. It wasn’t immediate for me. You might be lucky. 😛 Everyone is different!
Meditation has been a part of my life since I was very young; perhaps seven or nine years old. I was first introduced to it by my mum, who taught me staged physical relaxation. It wasn’t a teaching of meditation as such, but it opened a gateway that somehow brought me face to face with meditation techniques.
Once I understood how to consciously relax my body, I became extremely good at it. Even now I have reasonably good conscious control over tiny and difficult areas to control, like sphincters, and I have a very intimate relationship with the inner workings of my body. I can tell when something isn’t quite right with it long before it manifests outwardly; and I have an excellent awareness of my body, including when my sensitivity to pain changes. Now, this is both good and bad. Hyper-awareness can also result in feeling sensations from organs that are sometimes unnecessarily alarming.
In the years since learning the staged relaxation, I have built a robust and significant meditation practice. It’s a long way away from ‘meditation as relaxation’, which is really the n00b’s way of thinking about meditation.
As I said to my husband recently, it’s not about stopping thinking. It’s about gaining the much more difficult muscular skill of disengaging from the noise at will. Meditations that I’ve been involved with include all kinds of practices, from visualisation to astral projection and remote viewing… and more besides.
You know, just to freak you out.
But the Merkaba is something I came to late in life.
There are many requirements with Merkaba.
The first is to build a seamless breathing of love. Now, this doesn’t mean thinking about love. It means feeling love. You have to be able to get past your thinking brain and into the deep, visceral sensations of love in order for your Merkaba to be a success.
And I’ll be honest, it took me ages.
Not just ages of practice, but time in between to practice just tiny little things. Like that feeling of love, during everyday life. Practising Loving Kindness Meditation is a really good primer for this, by the way; I found that having had that experience was an excellent gateway into this more refined version.
The second requirement is an ability to visualise, to breathe using pranic breathing, and to feel, all at once. In a sense it’s almost the opposite of most meditation programs, which teach you to remove elements from your awareness. This meditation requires complete commitment, complete engagement, and the coherence of many aspects of you, in order to make it work.
Nonetheless, my journey into the Merkaba has so far been instructive, and I am just at the beginning.
First, I had no experience whatsoever beyond frustration, and it turned out that it was because I hadn’t learned the sequence correctly; I wasn’t in a state of love the entire time; and I was trying to force the issue.
It doesn’t work.
But eventually, it did begin to come together.
There are a couple of curiosities about the Merkaba. One is that you must be given permission by your higher self to proceed to the final stages. And the other is that you must be given the final breath by your higher self.
Once I was given permission by my higher self to proceed with the final stages of Merkaba, I did come consciousness-to-cowl with some kind of entity, which told me I wasn’t ready to proceed. In fact, it – he – gave me very specific practise instructions.
I interacted with this entity several times during my practice.
Most of the time we were in a small space that looked like some kind of room, sitting at a rough-hewn table, having a conversation. In one interaction, I was in some kind of lush place near a waterfall, in which I was baptised (that’s the only way to explain it). And in the last conversation with him, was in some place that looked completely unlike anywhere on Earth, in a tower overlooking a stunning city, the sky for which was a beautiful, soft pink. He taught me what the feeling of love should actually feel like. It was explained to me that this is effortless for his people, and yet I have to learn it. The experience was physically like ecstatic joy… that’s the only way to describe it. Ecstatic joy, tingling with anticipation and energy.
That was pretty confronting. I was effectively face-to-face with humanity’s key limitations. Having to learn them as though I were a child, even though I am middle-aged in human years, was very humbling.
Since then, I have had extraordinary experiences in Merkaba. One of those involved what I can only describe as interdimensional travel to another realm, one in which the “people” were giants.
Now I’m not expecting that anyone reading this would even accept it, much less expect that I am a normal person, not even you!
But I tell you this because in my experience, with training, effort, and application, what Drunvelo says is absolutely true.
For me, accessing this type of consciousness is a learning experience. I use it to learn more about myself and humanity, rather than for some gratuitous joyride. Though, sometimes I wish I did just joyride my way through! I tend to study, more than to skate through life. It’s not about studying generics; it’s more about studying me.
Anyway, I am writing this because I want you to know that techniques like Merkaba exist, and are available to you, if you are looking to hit the next level in your spiritual or meditation practise.
But a word of warning.
Whatever visions you see, voices you hear, instructions you are given, accept them and follow them.
You can choose not to, of course. But your outcomes will be much more successful if you do.
If you’d like to learn the Merkaba, you’ll find it on Drunvalo Melchizedek’s website.
