Apart from the incredible religious significance of these stones in the Hindu culture, Shiva Lingams are accredited with several interesting healing properties in other cultures throughout the world.
These stones are said to resonate with all of the elements. The way Shiva stones are naturally shaped by the sacred river creates such a balanced stone, a good blend between the masculine and feminine! The shape is considered to be masculine, while the markings represent the feminine!
These crystals are absolutely incredible for balance, as they allow the person working with them to feel harmony. They’ve also been said to help one feel unity and togetherness, even when you are alone.
These are great to meditate or work with if you find yourself holding onto things that no longer benefit your life such as old feelings and emotions. Shiva Lingams can help you to release all of those and move forward with your life.
Many people swear by Shiva Lingams as the perfect stone to include in self-love rituals or meditations as they really allow you to see both sides of yourself and bridge the gap to sense your fullest potential.
Above all though, my favorite property of Shiva Lingam stones is their ability to link and serve as an energetic line through all the chakras. It really is a whole-body healer!
