hurt, when we feel sadness, when we have suffered loss. She assists
us to grow, to transform, to heal and mend those broken bits and

Crystal Connections

Shiva Lingam




Gathered from a holy site on the Narmada River in India, these sacred stones pack quite a bit of energy. Though these stones are a symbol of the Hindu God Shiva they also represent both masculine (the phallic shape) and feminine (the yoni markings) energies, because of this they can be used to activate kundalini energy. Not only can they intensify vitality within the body, they are known to raise the pranic energy as well.

It’s been said that Shiva Lingams represent the center axis of life, connecting earth with the universe. Known as the stone of insight, lingams facilitate releasing all that you’ve outgrown by ridding oneself of old habits and beliefs clearing the way for spiritual growth. They resonate with all chakras and elements and are powerful enough to stimulate the energy system of the entire body, aiding in overall improvement of the mind, body and spirit.

Lingams are a symbol of the perfect union and balance of the male and female forms within a sacred shape and object that is one. For me, after working with Shiva Lingams they’ve become a symbol of love, creating a sense of peace and love within myself. I only have a handful of these wondrous stones, and though they’re not flashy or sparkly they are beautiful nonetheless, and they emanate a considerable amount of energy. Take some time to meditate with this crystalline structure, better yet, place it under your pillow and allow this powerful stone to speak, energize and heal you.
