GREAT FOR: Enlightenment, fertility, sexuality, energy balance, chakra stimulation, unity
Shiva Lingam is a uniquely shaped gemstone that is highly regarded in the Hindu religion. Named after Lord Shiva, it is believed that Shiva Lingam contains both the Divine Masculine and Feminine energies flowing through it and can help awaken one’s higher self in relation to their individuality and relation to the world. Its shape represents both the phallus of Lord Shiva and the cosmic egg of creation, as to symbolize the union between Lord Shiva and his consort Kali. Couples trying to conceive have used Shiva Lingam as a fertility stone. It is also used to enhance sexuality and other sexually-related problems. Those trying to reach enlightenment may notice the powerful pranic (life force) energy that comes from this stone when holding it, which is said to start at the Root chakra and reach up to the Crown chakra. It helps people understand both their uniqueness and duality of masculine/feminine energies, thus allowing them to feel whole in the universe.
