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. Shiva Lingams 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. They foster a transformation as our old patterns and ways of thinking dissolve making room for new paths to form. With their masculine and feminine energy they are a stone of harmony reminding us that we are connected in unity to all creation.
