Narmada River Lingams / Narmada Shiva Lingams / Shiva Lingas

Narmada Shiva Lingas

 

Introduction
The Shiva Lingam stone is a sacred stone of both the ancient and modern worlds. They are found in the Narmada River in Onkar Mandhata, one of the seven holy sites of India (also called Shiva Lingams). The Narmada River is located in the central western region of India. This is are a variety of cryptocrystalline quartz that is oval in shape and contains earthy hues, usually two-toned. In ancient Sanskrit, Shiva Lingam means a sign or symbol.

Accessible only during the dry seasons, these stones are collected from the river bed by only a few families who have been trained in the way to identify only the most special pieces. The stones are hand polished and sometimes sealed with a mixture of waxes and oils, according to formulas handed down from generation to generation within each family.

Man has collected stones since the beginning of time, and assumed that certain ones were containers of the life force with all its mystery. The Shiva Lingam is such a stone. It has been highly venerated and used extensively throughout history for both worship and ritual.

Uses and purpose
These egg-shaped Shiva Lingams are a good choice for anyone seeking balance and harmony in his/her life, and may also be useful for those engaged in the study of Ayurvedic practices.



Shiva Lingams are said to have a supreme ability to hold vibrational force and power. The density of the Shiva Lingam is close to emerald. The red markings you see on the stones are the meteorite material and are considered spiritually auspicious.



The shape of the Shiva Lingam makes it a powerful energy generator appropriate for healing a unique tool for meditation and cleansing. The natural shaping and polishing process forms a very balanced ritual object that combines both masculine and feminine attributes, providing a unified vibration.

The Shiva Lingam is a stone of insight, allowing the user to recognize and let go of things (feelings, emotions, etc.) that no longer serve or have been outgrown. The lingam represents the center axis of life, connecting earth with universe.



Lingam is symbolic of the Divine Creative Manifestation. The Lingam shape is representative of the power of Shiva, the Lord of Creation, and the masculine creative energy. The markings, also known as the yoni, symbolize the feminine energy, the seed which is fertilized to manifest the creative power in the dance of the cosmos. Geologists theorize that the iron oxide, of which the yoni is composed, was impregnated in the river bed millions of years ago by a meteorite.

Ruby Zoisite / Ruby in Zoisite Healing Properties

Ruby Zoisite




Ruby in Zoisite contains the properties of both ruby and zoisite. The only problem is, zoisite has a very short history of use as a metaphysical stone and there is almost no information known about it by itself. This is probably because except for the occasional larger stone that is cut into smaller ones, zoisite always has ruby growing with it and its metaphysical properties are affected by the ruby.



Ruby in Zoisite, also called Anyolite, is a combination crystal that contains both the properties of fiery Ruby and earthy Zoisite, but you can also look up Ruby Properties for every Anyolite stone will also contain those energies. This stone contains small Ruby crystals that have become embedded in Zoisite. It is a “marriage” of passion and patience.

Zoisite is a powerful gemstone that can transform negative energy into positive and when combined with Rubys abilities, magnifies the stones ability to help amplify the entire energy field and release the talents and abilities of your mind.



The combination of ruby in zoisite is perfect for those seeking to reach a trance state. Not only does it help you reach that state, but it helps connect you to the energies of others and maintain your own individual energies at the same time.

Ruby in Zoisite enhances psychic abilities, aids in the communication of spirit guides and, when placed on the Crown chakra, amplifies spirituality, engaging the body’s own energy field. Ruby in Zoisite helps you to maintain your individuality while still being part of the world around you.  It keeps you from over-reacting to difficult situations and prevents mood swings.

Ruby in Zoisite helps to open your intuitive abilities in a way that allows you to sense when the challenges life throws at you are just a part of living or due to someone wanting to intentionally cause trouble for you. For instance, in a work environment, we are often asked to do tasks that are not normally part of our normal routine. Sometimes this happens simply because things occasionally happen in business that must be done but are not part of the normal operating procedure. Sometimes this happens because of other employee’s jealousy trying to hold you back or punish you in some way. Ruby in Zoisite will help you know the difference.

Ruby in Zoisite transmutes negative energy into the positive. It is especially helpful during the grieving process, allowing you to release that pain and sorrow and gain spiritual comfort while getting on with your life and regaining that passion. It also enhances that passion into compassion for others who may be going through the same.



Physically, Ruby in Zoisite calms a racing heartbeat while maintaining the body’s equilibrium, especially during times of stress. It relieves inflammation and promotes strength in the immune system, heart, and lungs. Ruby in Zoisite can help heal problems associated with the reproductive organs and increase fertility, both in men and women. It is most helpful after a miscarriage or hysterectomy. Ruby in Zoisite is also beneficial in fighting bacterial infections.
