Shiva Lingams are egg shaped stones that originate the the Narmada River in western India, one of India’s seven holy sites. Villagers gather the rough stones from the shallow river and hand polish them into the elliptical shape.
Within its form the Shiva Lingam symbolizes both the female and male energies as well as the cosmic egg out of which creation is said to have emerged. The shape of the Lingam represents the male aspect of creation and the markings of the stone represent the female aspects. Lingams are considered balancing stones, balancing both the masculine and feminine energies with us.
The Shiva Lingams are emblems of inner transformation with an ability to break up patterns of self limiting habits and beliefs. Like Shiva, they destroy what is old and corrupt to clear the way for rebirth.
The total effect of the stone is one of union.
