Shiva Lingam
By Lotus

Hi All~ Stopped by a rock shop in Vantage they have these stones. They are sort of egg shaped, only longer. I bought a small one that is about 1-2 inches long. I have seen these before in metaphysical book shops. They come in all sizes... the one I found is small compared to all of them I have seen before today. I have wanted one of these stones for sometime now. On our way home from the coast I was drawn to stop at the rock shop. We have stopped there many times over the years. This is the first time that they have had them for sale. I am just thrilled to finally have one of these Shiva Lingam stones. I did a search about them. They have become more popular because they were in the movie Indiana Jones. They are good for meditation and other spiritual stuff. I will add more info later. I just felt the need to share my joy of having one of these stones come into my life. I felt guided to it.

Shiva Lingam or its proper name, Narmadeshvara Lingam stone is known as a sacred stone and comes from the Namada River in India. Traditional folklore says that the Shiva Lingam stone contains a microscopic form of the universe where the form represents male energy - knowledge - and the markings symbolic of female energy - wisdom. The Lingam is a symbol of that which is invisible yet omnipresent. The markings create a field for deep meditation and each stone, by nature, is one of a kind.

Awwwwwwww, isn't it amazing when we find something that sings to our hearts in such a powerful way?

My update on this stone: The shiva lingam is one of the most sacred icons of the ancient& modern world. Accessible only during the dry season, these stones are collected at that time from the riverbed. The locals naturally shape & polish them to enhance their natural markings with mud & natural oils. Shiva Lingams are only found at the Narmada River high in the mountains of Mandhata, one of the seven sacred holy places of pilgrimage in India. Each Lingam contains sacred markings symbolic of the marks on Lord Shiva`s forehead. The stones are "Crypto Crystalline Quartz", said to contain the loftiest vibration of all stones on Earth. They emanate a vibration that will purify your temple or home. The stone represents both the male energy of knowledge & the female energy of wisdom. No two stones are alike. They are composed of quartz composition with basalt & agate making them powerful energy generators. The lingam is symbolic of the divine creative manifestation. It also represents the harmony or balance of the soul that is maintained within the heart of all of us.

Here's my $0.02 on them: I saw them once at a gem show and the people selling them said that they were good for massage and because they are river stones, they LOVE to be with you in the bathtub and water is the best way of cleaning them. I remember holding them and it felt like I was holding a crayon. That waxy texture drove me up the wall.

Pathwalkah~ The ones I looked at are not waxy. Mine feels like a stone feels, cool until it absorbs my body heat. It then feels very nice & warm, I enjoy holding it on my palm. It’s nice to roll around in the hand. I'm thinking the ones that were waxy may have been treated with something? However I would not like that feeling either. Some veggies & fruits get this treatment.. like cucumbers & apples. I won't buy them if they feel waxy…LOL so I hear you on that note.
