Shiva Lingam is a sacred stone of the Indian Hindu religion, that will intensify the vitality and level of pranic energy within your body.
To improve your overall health these stones are powerful as they stimulate the energy system of the entire body, and will aid an overall improvement in your health and well-being. Its vibration has a different action depending on where you place it. This stone holds within it the feeling of unity and duality.
On one hand you see the masculine part of the stone within its phallic shape, and the feminine as well in the egg shape, and in the beauty of the markings on the stones. The stone as a whole recognizes that they are one, yet they are each a separate entity within the one.
These egg shaped stones come from only one place, the Narmada River in Western India, one of India's most holy sites. The villagers gather the stones from the river and hand polish them so that they are a smooth rounded shape.
Their colors vary, but they are all a tan color with various brown, red or grey stripes, spots or patches on the stones. The word 'Lingum' comes from the Sanskrit word for symbol, as these stones are a symbol of Lord Shiva.
Shiva Lingam encourage you to see the uniqueness of yourself, and spiritually, to see that each of you are part of the whole, yet you are separate individuals within the whole. The crown chakra is where we connect to the Higher Self and this stone encourages your direct connection to the Higher self.
