Shiva Lingam is a form of cryptocrystalline quartz found at one of seven holy sites in the Narmada River, in Western India. Each stone is gathered from the river by villagers who then hand polish them into the egg shape we are accustomed to seeing. The shape is a phallic symbol of the Hindu god Shiva.
The stone’s markings are referred to as the Yoni, representing the feminine energy or the seed which is fertilized. It is the cosmic egg from which all creation transpired. In crystal healing, egg-shaped crystals are known as powerful energy generators. They balance masculine and feminine energy resulting in a unified vibration.
Shiva Lingams are a stone of insight encouraging us to let go of anything and everything that no longer serves us. They awaken the Kundalini energy at the base of our spine and have the potential to foster a powerful awakening experience as the energy travels up each Chakra and out through the Crown. Shiva Lingam’s boost vitality and provide courage and strength to overcome our deepest fears.
Shiva Lingams represent the beginning of all creation and are physical manifestations of divine male and female energies. They embody the masculine energies through their solid oval shapes and the feminine through their many unique patterns. It is through this formation that they are able to link to the force of creation, just as humans can physically birth new life through connection of the male and female bodies.
Shiva Lingam aids in understanding polaric energies such as male/female, light/dark, and spiritual/physical so that one may see the one unifying force of the universe that exists behind them.
