Shiva Lingam represents the beginning of all creation and are physical manifestations of divine male and female energies. They embody the masculine energies through their solid oval shapes and the feminine through their many unique patterns. It is through this formation that they are able to link to the force of creation, just as humans can physically birth new life through connection of the male and female bodies. Shiva Lingam aids in understanding polaric energies such as male/female, light/dark, and spiritual/physical so that one may see the one unifying force of God that exists behind them. This helps one to heal and bring each polarity together within the self so they may work in harmony, bringing one to a state of self acceptance as well as acceptance of the differences in others and in all of creation.
The deep connection that Shiva Lingams have to creation give them a powerful resonation with all elements. They carry with them a strong connection to the earth element, so strong that it provides a deep link with the Earth itself for a pure connection and understanding of the planet we call home. Water itself is able to change shape and the Lingams have been shaped by the water. This is an intimate bond that is held within the stone, allowing one develop emotional and spiritual knowledge of great depth. It provides the cleansing effects of water and has a gentle cooling effect on the body. One may notice an influx of intuitive insights as well when working with a Shiva Lingam. Although it can easily cool the body, this stone is able to pick up and store heat very quickly. It contains immense fire energy within it which can be felt as it energizes the entire body and auric field. The fire energy in this stone is so intense that it can immediately activate Kundalini energy and ignite the soul. When meditating with Shiva Lingam one can feel this intense energy moving from the base of the spine all the way to the top, moving the sacred energy within through the chakra column and activating every chakra along the way. This also provides an incredible boost to vitality and prana.
