a person to ascend or descend into the higher or lower worlds. But
actually the Mer-Ka-Ba is much more than just a vehicle of ascension. It
can be, really, anything — since it is the primal pattern that created
all things and all universes, both visible and invisible (see The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life, volumes I & II).
In the Bible there is reference to Ezekiel and the wheels by which Ezekiel ascended into heaven. This was the Mer-ka-Ba.
In the Torah, there is reference to the Merkavah (as it is spelled in
Hebrew) which has two different meanings: One meaning is ''chariot,''
which is a vehicle; the other is the ''Throne of God.'' When the two
definitions are combined, the true meaning comes to life.
In Ancient Egypt, this primal pattern was called the Mer-Ka-Ba. It was actually three words, not one. Mer meant a kind of light that rotated within itself. Ka meant spirit, in this case referring to the human spirit. And Ba
meant the human body — though it also could mean the concept of Reality
that spirit holds. And so the entire word in ancient Egypt referred to a
rotating light that would take the spirit and the body from one world
I once spent a couple of hours with Credo Mutwa, the spiritual leader of
the Zulu tribe in Africa. He explained to me that Merkaba (one word)
was a Zulu word meaning a space/time/dimension vehicle. He told me that
according to Zulu legend his entire tribe had come from another
dimension here to Earth using the Merkaba.
In the modern world there are teachers worldwide — and I am one of them —
who are helping people remember the Mer-Ka-Ba. Thus begin a process in
consciousness that will eventually translate us from the
third-dimensional world into the next higher one through what is being
Ascension involves a process where the human body is transformed into
light and translated by an incredible birth into a new world. It is
achieved through a meditation that requires the mind, heart, body, and
spirit to completely integrate in one pattern of light and transcend the
human limitations of this reality.
This concept of the Mer-Ka-Ba as an ascension vehicle is not new. It is very, very old.
What actually is the Mer-Ka-Ba? Technically, it is an electro-magnetic
field sitting at about four degrees Kelvin, found primarily within the
microwave range — at least in the third dimension — that is entirely
geometric in nature. Specifically, the geometry used is called ''Sacred
Geometry,'' as this particular geometry is found in the creation
patterns of all things in Creation.
The Mer-Ka-Ba field is extremely complex, involving the five Platonic
solids and other sacred polyhedrons. It is believed to extend through
all possible dimensional and parallel universes, and can possibly change
its nature from electro-magnetic to whatever is appropriate.
The blueprint of the Mer-Ka-Ba is found throughout nature, such as in this photo of a galaxy.
One of the functions of the Mer-Ka-Ba, as we said, 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 nonfunctional, 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.
It was believed in ancient times, and even written about by the Hebrews,,
that the Merkavah could be turned on by certain principles in
meditation. This involves breathing changes, and mind, heart, and body
changes that alter the way a person perceives the Reality. From my
perspective, it is the beginning of ''Enlightenment.''
And yet it is clear that the Mer-Ka-Ba can also be ''activated,'' as the
New Agers say, by other methods beside the male-style instructions
using the breathing changes mentioned above. 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.
And yes, absolutely, 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.
At a certain and specific moment (not necessarily in this lifetime), a
person's Mer-Ka-Ba field can become alive. When this happens, an
electro-magnetic change occurs which results in a disc of energy that
comes out from a tiny place near the base of the spine and quickly
expands to about 27 to 30 feet in radius around the body. This disc can
easily be perceived by scientific means, and if the United States
Airforce is correct it can be put up on their computer screens via
satellite. In other words, the military can see people who activate
their Mer-Ka-Bas, and watch as they move around the surface of the
Since the number of people who have done this is now in the millions, it
is a fairly common sight now. It is the enormous magnetic burst that
results from the disc expanding that brings attention to itself. This
can easily be made invisible by people who activate their Mer-ka-Bas, if
they so desire.
The knowledge of the Mer-Ka-Ba is well known by most of the more
powerful governments of the world. I am certain that our government used
the Mer-Ka-Ba in the 1943 Philadelphia Experiment and the 1983 Montoc
Experiments — in their mind-control experiments and dimensional
explorations, and in controlling weather. And I am equally certain that
Russia is using the Mer-Ka-Ba in their spy programs and defense systems.
But regardless of government experimentation, Mother Earth, the human
race, and we as individuals can profit from this understanding and
knowledge. The remembering of the Mer-Ka-Ba is unfolding all over the
world. From my point of view, this unfoldment is all part of the
evolving cosmic DNA. The Mer-Ka-Ba will be remembered now because this is the time to remember.
Yes, I believe, as did almost all the ancient civilizations, that there
are specific moments in the history of mankind where great jumps in
human understanding take place, as in the ancient Sumerian, Egyptian,
and Indus Valley civilizations.
I truly feel that we have arrived at another one of these grand moments
of human history where brilliant light expands around the world, and
another huge leap in human consciousness appears. And, my friends, I
truly believe, from my own personal experience, that the Mer-Ka-Ba is a
doorway or a dimensional window into a higher level of consciousness
that could be the catalyst for this great change called ascension.
So, to close, I will say again: Your character is the key to your
ascension. Regardless of who you are at this moment, good or bad, you
can change your character. Like losing weight, it is completely within
your control if you focus.
In changing yourself, your Mer-Ka-Ba can become alive. And once it is alive, everything is possible.

the north, a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness
was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out
of the midst of 1:16 The appearance of the wheels and their work was
like unto the colour of a beryl: and they four had one likeness: and
their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a
wheel. ... 1:19 And when the living creatures went, the wheels
went by them: and when the living creatures were lifted up from the
earth, the wheels were lifted up. 1:20 Whithersoever the spirit
was to go, they went, thither was their spirit to go; and the wheels
were lifted up over against them: for the spirit of the living creature
was in the wheels. 1:21 When those went, these went; and when
those stood, these stood; and when those were lifted up from the earth,
the wheels were lifted up over against them: for the spirit of the
living creature was in the wheels. ... 1:23 And under the
firmament were their wings straight, the one toward the other: every one
had two, which covered on this side, and every one had two, which
covered on that side, their bodies. 1:24 And when they went, I heard the noise of their wings, like the noise of great waters...

Edition; G.Vermes; p. 211: "The Throne-Chariot [Merkavah] was a central
subject of meditation in ancient as well as in medieval Jewish
esotericism and mysticism"; and The Essential Talmud, Adin Steinsaltz p. 213: "The sources state that torat ha-sod (mysticism) was divided into two parts: Ma'aseh Bereshit (Act of Creation) and Ma'aseh Merkavah (Divine Chariot). The former was more theoretical and dealt with the creation of the world and the first divine revelations. Ma'aseh Merkavah,
based on the prophet Ezekiel's description of the Divine Chariot, is a
study of the prevailing relations between God and the world and
apparently contained the seeds of what later came to be known as
Kabbalah ma'asit (practical kabbalah)."
