The Magnificent Shiva Lingam stone

This remarkable Shiva Lingam brings many blessings with it. A number of people that I know have had the experience of communicating with it, and several people have had spontaneous experiences of a spiritual nature. One very special feature of this Shiva Lingam is that, in addition to being black, it has many small speckles of quartz crystal embedded throughout. These very much resemble the appearance of the night sky. I feel that this pattern is not random, but rather expresses the nature and quality of this stone's being.

According to the "doctrine of signatures", the form and appearance of nature's various creations speaks of their inner nature. As this piece stands embedded in the soil of mother earth, and reaches upward toward the sky, it holds within itself a map of the entire cosmos. As a crypto-crystalline sacred stone from the Narmada River in India (which is the source of all real Shiva Lingams), it holds a special energy and consciousness that can be felt.

It has its own work to do—balancing energies, linking to the crystalline grid that surrounds the earth, reminding human beings of the eternal connection to Source, and anchoring the energies of the nearby meditation center in a solid and stable alignment with the Heaven-Earth axis. It is, in fact a cosmic axis crystal.

Of course, I did not know any of this when I arranged, sight unseen, for it to take up residence here. Now, when people come to meditate, they will often visit the Shiva Lingam and reconnect with its timeless message of our connection to Source.
