This Shiva Lingam is a naturally occurring stone, taken from the Narmada River, one of India's sacred sites.
The Shiva Lingam is also representative of male and female energies within each person. They are also called Sphatik Crystals. It is believed that Lord Shiva and Goddess Shakti live in these stones. Their energy harmonizes the male and female energies within the wearer, and balance the aura.
There are times when it is necessary to be nurturing, the female energy. There are times when it is necessary to be firm, the male energy. If one is too firm, he or she becomes cold and unfeeling. If one is overly nurturing, he or she loses the sense of self worth and is taken advantage of or even used by others.
To find balance between the two is essential for love, strength, self-esteem, and ultimately happiness.
The Shiva Lingam is similar in shape to an egg. It is a thousands of years old symbol of couples and family, as well as of the origin of every individual.
The egg represents protection, nourishment, and new beginnings in life, whether physical, emotional, or spiritual.
A Shiva Lingam will become a very personalized stone to the wearer. The energy will enhance creativity, strength, and balance. It is an excellent grounding stone.
Because these are natural stones, they vary in size and have each their own characteristics. Much like people, no two are exactly alike. Some are more rounded, and some are more elongated. The average height is 1", and the average diameter is 0.6".
Pendant comes on a black cord necklace with clasp and is gift boxed.
