Shiva Lingam is an incredibly powerful stone that is only found in the Narmada River in India, which is one of the country's seven sacred holy sites. In ancient Sanskrit, Shiva Lingam means a sign or symbol. True Shiva Lingams from the Narmada River are gathered once a year in a special ceremony and carefully polished by hand.
The shape of the Lingam is known to represent the power of Shiva, and the masculine energy. The markings, also known as the yoni, symbolize the feminine energy. Lingams are known as the stone that resonates with the energies of all five elements: fire, earth, water, air and ether. This increases its healing power, clears blockages and activates the entire chakra system.
Shiva Lingam stones are helpful for those who struggle with the fear of losing their independence and individuality when in a relationship. This stone is reassuring to those in long distance relationships as it naturally creates an intimate energy. Meditating or sitting with a Shiva Lingam is known to expand one’s mind and its energy commonly spreads love, wisdom and steadies the heart. Legend says that when a child is born, the earth creates a Shiva Lingam stone specifically for them. The individual will encounter their stone at a time in their life when its most useful to them.
Cleanse in running river water. Shiva Lingams are self-charging but can benefit from an additional lunar charging.
