Shiva Lingam is a sacred stone of the Hindu religion that will intensify the vitality and life force energy within your body. The word “Lingam” comes from the Sanskrit word for symbol, as these stones are considered to be a devotional symbol of Lord Shiva, the destroyer, the most powerful god of the Hindu pantheon and one of the godheads in the Hindu Trinity along with Brahma, the Creator and Vishnu, the preserver.
According to legend, Brahma and Vishnu had an argument as to their supremacy. Brahma being the Creator, declared himself to be more revered, while Vishnu, the Preserver, pronounced that he commanded more respect. A colossal lingam blanketed in flames appeared before them. Shiva then appeared out of the lingam and stated that he was the progenitor of them both and that henceforth he should be worshiped in his phallic form, the lingam, and not in his anthropomorphic form.
Shiva is believed to be at the core of the centrifugal force of the universe, because of his responsibility for death and destruction. Shiva is the dissolving force in life, but Shiva dissolves in order to create, since death is the medium for rebirth into a new life so the opposites of life and death and creation and destruction both reside in his character.
Shiva Lingams come from only one place. They are collected from the banks of the river Narmada in India. The currents of river Narmada have helped in producing the egg-shaped form of these stones that are collected once a year during a special ceremony. The shape of the stone represents male energy and knowledge, but the patterns of the crystal which are always different from one stone to the other, represent the female energy and wisdom. Together, the two elements symbolize the amalgamation of male and female energy.
The lingam is a reminder that we should balance our Yin and Yang energies and establish a harmonious state of existence. This stone resonates with the energies of all the elements and aligns our energies with the planetary energy. It represents harmony of the soul’s energy forces within the Universe. It is an excellent companion in meditation, and it helps with activating the kundalini – the energy of our consciousness – and awakens the seven chakras, the energy centers of the body bringing feelings of peace and well-being.
Shiva Lingams are useful for healing of any reproductive problems, relieve menopausal symptoms, menstrual cramps, impotence and other problems of a sexual nature. These beautiful stones intensify the vibration within your energy system to strengthen and balance the whole body as well as enhancing your overall health and well-being.
