Lapis Lazuli Merkaba | Calming, Intuition, Protection
Merkaba refers to the shape of this stone and is actually a combination of 3 words meaning light, spirit, and body. This shape is also referred to as Metatron’s cube. Symbolizing “as above, so below” or the fusion between heaven and earth, the Merkaba is considered sacred geometry. The Merkaba is said to provide protection and can “transport” you to higher dimensions through meditation and focus.
