Light body/Merkaba activation

I’ve heard about Merkaba before but it wasn’t until just a few days ago when the word reappeared, this time in an article form consciousreminder .com and grabbed my attention. The article highlighted 8 uncomfortable symptoms you will experience while your body goes through light body/Merkaba activation.

So what is Merkaba? What I read is that it is a spiritual ascension vehicle, a bridge between this world and the next. It is described as an energetic field surrounding the body. Used during meditation it is a source of power and enlightenment, used to transcend to other dimensions and realities.

Breaking down the word MER=light, KA=spirit and Ba=body. Merkaba activation is a state when you become totally aware. When your spiritual field is filled with immense amount of love, abundant light begins to fuel your soul and you know what happens. Your Merkaba or light body is awakened! This will give you the ability to unlock the 4th and 5th dimension of your physical and spiritual form.

It sounded interesting and I started to relate to a few things. Over the past few months I had a great sense of increased awareness. I knew what was going on and it was regardless if it was in matters of life experiences and being fully present during the cause and effect process, applying wisdom and knowledge, it whether it was on new territory, something I never experienced before, unfamiliar and yet familiar. I felt guided, privileged, shown, and new tools became available to me. The teacher appears when the student is ready. Several times I felt I had entered the threshold of such a moment. And then I read on to cover the symptoms. These uncomfortable 8 symptoms and it was here that my mouth really dropped. Could it be??? Was I going through a Merkaba activation???

1. Intense physical pain

You will have to bear intense physical pain which may be chronic or persistent. This pain is bound to happen if you think about it in terms of the DNA; because when the light body forms, many changes take place at the genetic level which gives rise to physical pain which is intense and excruciating in nature. But the good part about this pain is that right now it may feel like it is killing you but the truth is thy it is liberating you by freeing you of disease and even slowing down the process of aging!

Analysis: It would make sense and explain as to why I am in so much pain lately, despite having removed myself from a toxic environment which I thought would promote healing and feeling better. This has not been the case and instead of getting better I have gotten worse.

2. Sadness

Sadness will become a part of your everyday life. Most of the times you won’t even know why you are sad, but sadness will haunt you and not let go of you. This is because you us are dissolving the past; so all the accumulation of sadness will first purge and then you will feel free and happy to lead your life. It’s really just a phase; and it will surely pass.

Analysis: I have felt this a 100%. I even read up about and told my girlfriend not too long ago that I think I am facing depression.

3. Tough time at work

Well, you will have a tough time at your job and not because of some external issues but because internally you will begin to feel the futility of it all. You will feel that the job is unfulfilling and that you don’t need it to lead a happy life. You will realize how important it is to something that you really love rather than doing something for the money or for fame.

Analysis: This has actually started 3 years ago for me and has been work in progress, building a better and more fulfilling future.

4. Isolation

This is a very common sign of Merkaba. You will no longer need the company of people; whether they are acquaintances or loved ones. Even when you are with people, you will feel like you are alone and all by yourself. This happens because Merkaba makes new bonds that are good for you.

Analysis: Again, I relate a 100%. I seek the peace, the solitude, my time alone and other times it can get lonely. It contradicts which then results into unexplained sadness and confusion, having the very things I want and then feeling sad about them.

5. Sleep

You will observe a significant change in your sleep pattern. You may wake up all of a sudden and cry about nothing. This happens because your body spends a lot of energy to create the light body. Also, you may be having weird nightmares. They may be so vivid that they will almost seem real to you.

Analysis: I haven’t slept a full night since I moved. My sleeping pattern is definitely interrupted and changed. Sometimes due to the excruciating pain, sometimes due to sadness and isolation.

6. Afloat

Yes, during Merkaba, you will tell like you are floating. You will feel like you are being pulled by some inexplicable force towards the sky and you will feel very light. This may also make you feel that you are trapped between two worlds.

Analysis: This is the only one I can’t fully relate to as it is hard to float with the RA and the pain body.

7. Consciousness

You might find yourself talking to you inner consciousness. This happens because your son cuisines skips ahead of your body and you will feel “ascension.” Also, at first you may feel uncomfortable while talking to your inner consciousness but this discomfort will slowly vanish and you will feel like your inner consciousness is actually your long lost friend. It will be an amazing experience when you will be able to talk to your inner consciousness that freely!

Analysis: It surely is and with it comes a great deal o fun self care and self love.

8. Sensitivity to light

The light will become something very important in your life. You will feel the special connection and you will see all shapes and manifestation of light, even in other dimensions. Pay attention to the signs around you and the changes you are going through. They may not be what you think. Don’t mistake it for something else. There is a good chance you are going through Merkaba activation if you are experiencing a combination of the symptoms listed above.

Analysis: Could it be….


We are the co-creators of our life and the time is now. More than ever are we needed to support Mother Earth and each other. Together we discover and explore our unique gifts in times of strengths, in times we lean on each other, and in times when we learn from each other. This blog started as an outlet and what I ultimately called my “Warriors Journey.” It was a way to document the ups and downs of my life, sharing my hardships as well as my successes. It showcased the struggles, but more important the ways of how to overcome them. Although we are warriors each and every day, I realized that having to be a warrior, comes from a place of pain. I decided to rename this blog, and “Phoenix Rising” now stands for the story of overcoming such a painful place. My motivation for this blog hasn’t changed and I hope to share inspiration and hope, to create a sense of belonging, a space of being heard, and connecting with like minded beings who instill a sense of oneness. We are never alone, and we are unstoppable in the pursuit of what sets our soul on fire. Who I am in a nutshell... 
I am an energy healer and Reiki Master. I am surviving a chronic disease that I’ve sent into remission three times since my initial bout, 15 years ago. I continuously challenge the status quo and by doing so I change my stars. I am a believer that anything is possible. I am a hopeless romantic and I believe that true love exists on various levels. I am an optimist that will always see the glass as half full. I am a dreamer, believing in endless possibilities. Not even the sky is the limit. I have jumped off of the hamster wheel, and I am writing a new chapter. I am chasing my Nirvana to support my most authentic self. This is my story, I am that Phoenix and I am rising from the ashes. Namaste 🙏🏼💙🦋

  1. Interesting information, dear Rhapsody.
    After reading about your challenges, I come to think about, that you might find some help for answers in the books of the family Don Miguel Ruiz and his sons. Many years ago, I read some of the books and understood, what I was ready to understand that time. Since I have read them again and again and understand so much more today. I learn something new every time, as I read their books. As you don’t have much physical space, you might find the books as e-books too.
    The Toltec wisdom talk to me and I hope, they can support you too.
    If you are in risk of having a depression, take care of healthy food, daylight and some exercise, up to how much is possible that day. I have been there for years and it was a tough time.
    I’m leaving Thursday and the big day is Monday with my mother. I will be back in the next weekend. Do you have an idea about, when you will travel yet?
    Please take good care of yourself, dear friend.
    Huge hugs and love to both of you ❤

    1. Thank you my dear friend. I have heard of him before, I might even had a book of his in my shopping cart before but I am yet to commit and read one of his books. I am intrigued to say the least and will revisit a purchase. Thank you so much. It’s amazing how books touch us and they have always been a big part of my life. Today I mostly read self help books, herbalism, energy healing, shamanism or personal memoirs and achievements. I think it would fit right in.
      I still haven’t booked my flight and have entertained the thought of coming in spring to give myself time to heal. It’s not set in stone though as this will bring additional problems if I do so. I keep you posted.
      May you travel in angels wings on Thursday and stay safe throughout this most important journey. My thoughts and heart will be with you, walking with you every step. Big big hugs and much love to you my dear friend. Xo

      1. If you didn’t read anything from them yet, I will recommend you to start with The Four Agreements by the father Don Miguel Ruiz. This is the important of the books to get into this way of thinking.
        Thank you for your thoughts and much love to you, dear friend ❤

      2. Thank you dear friend. Here it is Sunday morning and I arrived safely at home yesterday evening.
        It was a challenging trip, but I feel grateful, that everything now is in the right order, as it should have been 1,5 years ago.
        It was also great to see my family again, which hasn’t been possible either because of Covid.
        I hope, that life will go on a little more easy now.
        Much love to you ❤

      3. Ah I am relieved you are back home and everything is finally sorted for you and the family. What a hard thing to do and to wait for. Relax and be good to yourself now. You’ve done important work and the burden should feel much lighter.
        Sending love and light. 🙏🏼💙
