A Merkaba is an amazing liquid light body energy field extending over 50 feet around a person's body. The Merkaba is a living energy field. It is you and you are it. It is created using a special sequence of co-ordinated breaths and visualisations. When you are able to think about your Merkaba field every day and feel that unconditional love is part of your everyday life, then the field has become permanent and you will no longer need to do the daily meditation. However, you may choose to carry on because you enjoy the experience! On average this is three to six months after starting the daily routine.
Every single thing in the universe has a Merkaba field around it - even a planet. Once all humans had this knowledge, but in our fall from grace in Atlantis we forgot how to breathe correctly through the prana tube and how to maintain our Merkaba fields. We started to breathe instead through our noses and mouths. Human babies are born with an intact Merkaba (the baby's fontanelle is the remnant of the prana tube entering the crown), but it collapses within a few days.
Drunvalo Melchizedek is primarily responsible for bringing back knowledge of the Merkaba to human consciousness. Drunvalo studied physics and art at the University of California at Berkeley, but personally feels that his most important education came after college. In the last 25 years he has studied with over 70 teachers from all belief systems and religious understandings, providing him with a wide breadth of knowledge, compassion and acceptance. He is a highly advanced being with phenomenal understanding of most things metaphysical and a close link with the Hopi Indian and many other Tribal Elders.
Not only is Drunvalo's mind exceptional, but his heart, warm personality and love for life everywhere, positively exudes from him. He networks his teachings, including the Merkaba Meditation. This teaching encompasses every area of human understanding, explores the development of mankind from ancient civilizations to the present day and offers clarity regarding the world's state of consciousness and what is needed to maintain a smooth transition into the 21st Century.

One of the functions of the Mer-Ka-Ba is to act as the vehicle to take the spirit and the body into the next
world. However, this function — and most of the other possibilities — is impossible to obtain until something changes within the person. The Mer-Ka-Ba is situated around the human body like a three-dimensional geometric web that is dormant and non-functional, waiting for the right moment.
When the spirit that inhabits the body remembers that it is there and begins to change certain aspects of itself, an incredible transformation begins to grow.
The Mer-Ka-Ba can also be ''activated” by other methods beside the male-style instructions using the breathing changes. It can also become functional through methods that are purely female. Through the true living of qualities such as love, faith, trust, truth, and compassion, the Mer-Ka-Ba can spontaneously become alive. In other words, very pure human character can translate into a living Mer-Ka-Ba field around the person, even if that person doesn't initially know it is there.
The Mer-Ka-Ba is alive. It is a living field, not a purely mechanical field of energy. Because it is a living field, it responds to human thought and feeling, which is the way to connect to the field. So the ''computer'' that guides the Mer-Ka-Ba is the human mind and heart. The possibilities are endless.
