14. Star of Life – Crown Chakra – Sacred Geometry – Merkaba
The Star of Life in our crown chakra, reminds us that we come from the stars and will return to the stars. The Merkaba, consists of two counter-rotating tetrahedrons. The upward-pointing tetrahedron representing fire, air and blade; merges with the downward-facing tetrahedron representing water, earth and chalice. Together they generate a powerful yet subtle electro-magnetic field that surrounds us.
The word Merkaba in Hebrew, means “chariot”. In Egyptian, it means the “beloved body and spirit of the soul” (mer-beloved, ka-soulbody, ba-soulspirit). Another translation is: “light, spirit, body” (mer-light, ka-spirit, ba-body).
The element associated with the Star of Life is light. Light is created by the Sun, which generates the electro-magnetic spectrum of light that we live in.
The Sun is a star that ignited many of our world beliefs. It has inspired stories and traditions that impact us to this day. The Star of Life within the crown chakra connects us with the realm of the infinite soul.
Message: The stars remind us to connect to our true north, our inner compass that guides us. Listen to yourself right now in making decisions. Take some time to star gaze and learn of the stories held in the constellations that intrigue you. Enjoy sensing where your star lineage began. The unknown will become known when you least expect it.
“The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff.” – Carl Sagan
The crown chakra is located at the top of the head and is connected to our belief system. This is the place of spiritual connection beyond the self. It represents the upper world and the archetype of branches. In sacred geometry, it is the Merkaba or star tetrahedron reminding us that we come from the stars and will return to the stars. Its element is light and its belief is represented by our dreams or night visions. The crown chakra serves as a connection to source that sees beyond the self to the infinite soul.
