A Merkaba is an ancient, energetic symbol of spiritual transformation. It is said to carry the energy of divine light and most commonly used by healers, masters, and seekers of those wanting to connect with the astral realm. “Mer” means Light. “Ka” means Spirit. “Ba” means Body. In essence, it means the spirit/body surrounded by counter-rotating fields of light which transport spirit/body from one dimension to another.
Ways to Use Your Crystal Magically:
To cleanse your gemstones and allow their pure energy to flow, place them in a bowl of sea salt water overnight, then rinse them with plain water.
Charge your gems by placing them under the light of the full moon overnight.
Bring in spiritual focus when doing spells by holding a crystal in one hand or one in each hand.
Make a crystal grid by placing several crystals in a pattern on an altar space.
Make a Gem Elixir or Crystal Water by placing a crystal in a jar in a bowl of water overnight. You may use this water to bless, cleanse or drink and impart the essence of the gemstone to whatever this water touches. Rose Quartz contains Iron and Titanium and should only be used to make a Gem Elixir using the indirect method.
Place your gemstones on your altar to empower the energy of your magical work.
Give the heart-shaped gemstone to someone with whom you’d like to strengthen or improve your relationship.
Carry gemstones in a small cloth bag in your purse or pocket to bring the energy of the gem with you wherever you go.
