Star of Life

14_Merkaba - Crown

Crown Chakra – Sacred Geometry – Merkaba

The Star of Life is associated with our crown chakra, reminding us that we come from the stars and will return to the stars. The Star of Life is also known as a Merkaba, which consists of two rotating tetrahedrons. Theupward pointing tetrahedron represents – fire, air and blade; while the downward facing tetrahedron represents – water, earth and chalice. Together, they generate a powerful yet subtle electro-magnetic field that is often referred to as our aura or auric field.

The word Merkaba, in Hebrew, means chariot. In Egyptian, it means the beloved body and spirit of the soul (mer-beloved, ka-soul body, ba-soul spirit). 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 stars such as our Sun, which generates the electro-magnetic spectrum of light that we live in.

Scientists and astronomers have suggested that there are close to 2 trillion galaxies in our known universe with an average of 100 million stars in each galaxy. Our universe is estimated to have begun over 13.8 billion years ago. Some believe in the concept of multi-verses, which means there are other universes beyond ours. All totaled there could be an infinite number of stars that speak to our soul and call us home.

The Star of Life encourages us to dream within the realm of infinite possibilities as we reconnect with the stardust that created us. All life on earth began from the many elements, chemicals and metals found in the star dust that impacted our earth over 4.5 billion years ago. As temperatures changed, complex elements such as water formed, which encouraged the growth of cellular bacteria and other organic micro-organisms. Eventually life evolved and began to replicate itself through unique RNA and DNA sequences.

There is a belief that we hold the blueprints of this cellular memory within us. By remembering that we all come from the stars we realize that we are interconnected with all that is.

Message: The stars are reminding us to connect with our inner compass for guidance. Make time to gaze at the stars and learn their stories. Begin to sense how stars and constellations are speaking to our soul and how their message relates to life now.

“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
