Artist's Description

The #Merkaba comes to life all around us!

via #Crystalinks

“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. "

Wiki;

Merkabah/Merkavah mysticism (or Chariot mysticism) is a school of early Jewish mysticism, c. 100 BCE – 1000 CE, centered on visions such as those found in the Book of Ezekiel chapter 1, or in the hekhalot (“palaces”) literature, concerning stories of ascents to the heavenly palaces and the Throne of God. The main corpus of the Merkabah literature was composed in Israel in the period 200–700 CE, although later references to the Chariot tradition can also be found in the literature of the Chassidei Ashkenaz in the Middle Ages.1 A major text in this tradition is the Maaseh Merkabah (Works of the Chariot).2

The noun merkabah “thing to ride in, cart” is derived from the consonantal root r-k-b with the general meaning “to ride”. The word “chariot” is found 44 times in the Masoretic text of the Hebrew Bible – most of them referring to normal chariots on earth,3 and although the concept of the Merkabah is associated with Ezekiel’s vision (1:4–26), the word is not explicitly written in Ezekiel 1.4

However, when left untranslated, in English the Hebrew term merkabah (Hebrew: מֶרְכַּב, מרכבה, and מִרְכֶּבֶת) relates to the throne-chariot of God in prophetic visions. It is most closely associated with the vision in Ezekiel chapter 1 of the four-wheeled vehicle driven by four hayyot (“living creatures”), each of which has four wings5 and the four faces of a man, lion, ox, and eagle (or vulture).

According to the verses in Ezekiel and its attendant commentaries, his vision consists of a chariot made of many heavenly beings driven by the “Likeness of a Man.” The base structure of the chariot is composed of four beings. These beings are called the “living creatures” (Hebrew: חיות hayyot or khayyot). The bodies of the creatures are “like that of a human being”, but each of them has four faces, corresponding to the four directions the chariot can go (East, South, North and West). The faces are that of a man, a lion, an ox (later changed to a cherub in Ezekiel 10:14) and an eagle. Since there are four angels and each has four faces, there are a total of sixteen faces. Each “Hayyot” angel also has four wings. Two of these wings spread across the length of the chariot and connect with the wings of the angel on the other side. This creates a sort of ‘box’ of wings that forms the perimeter of the chariot. With the remaining two wings, each angel covers its own body. Below, but not attached to, the feet of the “Hayyot” angels are other angels that are shaped like wheels. These wheel angels, which are described as “a wheel inside of a wheel”, are called “Ophanim” אופנים (lit. wheels, cycles or ways). These wheels are not directly under the chariot but are nearby and along its perimeter. 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 sapphire.

The Bible later makes mention of a third type of #angel found in the Merkabah called #Seraphim " (lit. “burning”) angels. These #angels appear like flashes of fire continuously ascending and descending. These “Seraphim” angels power the movement of the chariot. In the hierarchy of these angels, “Seraphim” are the highest, that is, closest to God, followed by the “Hayyot”, which are followed by the “Ophanim.” The chariot is in a constant state of motion, and the energy behind this movement runs according to this hierarchy. The movement of the “Ophanim” is controlled by the “Living creatures”, or Hayyot, while the movement of the “Hayyot” is controlled by the “Seraphim”. The movement of all the angels of the chariot is controlled by the “Likeness of a Man” on the Throne.
