The varieties of benefits of using the Merkaba are greatly varied. It is a powerful healing and protection tool. By utilizing the ancient Prana breathing technique, we are able to restore the Prana flow through the pineal gland at the center of our brain. This revived use of our gland, which has been virtually dormant for 13,000 years allows the heightened use of our telepathic and extrasensory perception abilities.
The Merkaba balances and revives the activities between the two sides of our brain. Such training strengthens our sensitivities and mental abilities, (at this time we use only 5-10% of our brain). The Merkaba assists us in our spiritual growth. It connects us with our higher self (i.e. ourselves on a higher level of consciousness).
