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.
Shiva Lingam brings us into full balance and empowerment, connecting us directly with both the Divine outside of us and the Divine within us. It resonates with the Sacred Masculine and the Divine Feminine principles, helping us to see this energy in ourselves as well as in others.
It is a powerful Tantric stone, teaching us how to use our sexuality as a form of prayer and creative energy. It helps us to explore and release outdated notions of sin and shame, allowing us to live and love joyfully.
