mysteries in our world.
An Australian magazine originally had requested an article from
me and I had to write in but a few days. So it was not an easy
task by any means as the study about the crystal skulls is very
involved and complex (to a degree).
But, being an Aries
born individual, I definitely accepted this challenge and I
think the end results turned out great! So, now is our time to
share this information with you!
I? My name is Joshua Shapiro (American born in Chicago) and
in April of 1983, I was minding my own business when I walked into a
metaphysical bookstore in San Jose, California and saw a picture of
an almost human-sized Amethyst Crystal Skull.
amazing is that when I gazed at this picture, I felt a strong and
powerful vibration throughout my entire body and heard in my head
“What is this (the skull) doing out now?”
Within an hour,
while I was still in the same bookstore speaking to the owner, a
powerful earthquake hit a city in California not far from us and the
table with the pictures of this crystal skull was shaking as well.
With an inner and outer confirmation, my journey with the crystal
skulls had begun.
Now almost 20 years later, having given over 200 presentations in the
U.S., Canada, South America, Australia and all over Europe (10
different countries), boy do I have some important things to tell
you about the crystal skulls!!
“Portal de Luz” – a smoky quartz crystal skull created by a
Master Brazilian Carver. Caretaker – Joshua Shapiro
Next Question you may ask, “What the ‘Heck’ is a Crystal Skull?” –
Well as the name does imply, we are speaking about skull shaped
objects made from various types of quartz crystals (clear, amethyst,
smoky, rose, etc …).
There are three types discussed in the world
today within the crystal skull community:
crystal skulls being manufactured by modern
carvers of which thousands upon thousands now exist (and this
has only really started to explode since the middle part of the
1990’s). These skulls come in
all shape and sizes (one new skull made was well over 100 pounds
or 50 kilo) and are being primarily done by carvers in Brazil
and China. Even being sold on E-Bay.
a crystal skull that was fashioned from over 100 years ago
to about 1000 years ago. Most of these types of skulls have been
discovered within or near ancient ruins in Mexico or Central America
and many of them are guarded by descendants of various indigenous
people throughout the world. Usually with the “Old” crystal skulls
we can have find some type of tool mark left by the carver, as is
the case with the “New” crystal skulls.
a crystal skull that was created from 1500-2000
years ago to whenever (they could be hundreds of thousands of years
old). Here are a few crystal skulls that exist today which are
considered “ANCIENT” crystal skulls. However, there is absolutely no
known technique we have that can date when a quartz crystal was
fashioned. n general if we don’t find any tool marks this infers the
skull was either done by hand or using some advance technology we
don’t know about (Lasers - of which primitive tribes
did not have -, Thought Projection into the Ethers, a Gift from the
Gods - ETs -, made by an advance culture that existed on the earth
long ago - Atlantis, Lemuria - or they may have come
from some advance civilizations that live in the Inner Earth - the
Hollow Earth theory, a whole new article by itself).
It is my personal belief that the true understanding of the ancient
crystal skulls can be found within various traditions of the
indigenous cultures that exist in our world.
In particular, there is
a definite connection with the crystal skulls with the Mayans
and the Aztecs, and there is even information coming
from various Native American sources that they know about the skulls
as well. In most cases, the crystal skulls are linked to sacred
world prophecies held by these people.
Also if such cultures have
their own crystal skulls (which seems very likely) they are
protecting and guard these skulls in secret as they consider these
artifacts very sacred and take the responsibility to hold them very
To determine what type of crystal skull one might have, either we can
go by the Legends of the Indigenous People who have
them, or by working with trained sensitives who can psychically link
into the energy and history of the skull.
History of the Crystal Skulls
public first became aware of the crystal skulls during the later
part of the 19th century.
At this time, many museums of the world
became interested in displaying antiquities from past civilizations
(Egypt, Greece, Mesoamerica, etc …) Thus, in 1878, in the
Musče de l’Homme (Museum of Man in Paris) and in 1898, in
the Museum of Man of London, each had a clear quartz skull on
display (both came out during the 1860’s during the French
occupation of Mexico, purportedly found or acquired by Soldiers of
Fortune, linked to Mayan sites in this country).
However, in the
research conducted for our new book, “Journeys of a Crystal
Skull Explorer” (to be released as an e-book and published
book this year) there were a number of other old and ancient crystal
skulls that were uncovered in various ways during this same century
which eventually found their way (after passing through the hands of
various people) to specific individuals who are publicly known
Again in the early part of the 20th century, usually connected with
ancient Mesoamerican ruins or areas, more crystal skulls were
Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull”: named after famed explorer
and adventurer, F. A. Mitchell-Hedges, discovered in
Lubaantum, an ancient Mayan city in Belize in 1924,
human size, clear quartz, removable jaw, an almost exact duplicate
of our own modern skull, now in the hands of Anna Mitchell-Hedges
“ET”: discovered by a Mayan family near Guatemala
while digging on their property in 1906; purchased by Joke Van
Dieten in 1991 through a crystal store near Los Angeles, is the
only human size ancient crystal skull made from smoky quartz which
has a resemblance to an “ET” shape, this skull now
travels the world and was shown at a major exhibition of Mysterious
Objects in Vienna in 2001
“Max” 18 lb (9 kilo) clear quartz crystal skull
purportedly discovered in a Mayan tomb in Guatemala
The skull was gifted by a Mayan Shaman to a Tibet
trained Lama in 1970, used in a healing center in Houston, Texas and
then upon the Lama’s death, was given to Carl and JoAnn Parks,
who tour with this crystal skull with many people in the U.S.
The name comes from a telepathic communication between
the skull and Mrs. Parks, where the skull informs this is the
“Ami” – an ancient amethyst crystal skull.
Notice the circular indentation in the
temple and the white squiggly line that
cuts the skull in half as it travels the
full circumference of the quartz piece.
the Amethyst Crystal Skull: Its history is unsure,
purportedly it was part of a collection of crystal skulls held
by the Mexican President Diaz from 1876-1910, but also we
have reports the skull was discovered in the Oaxaca area
(Mexico) and was hand down generation to generation through an
order of Mayan Priests.
Now it resides in
San Jose, California with a group of businessmen who are
offering this skull for sale.
are of course many other crystal skulls which are believed to be
“ANCIENT” or very old, but this group of four is a good
So, why are the Crystal Skulls so
It would take a good book (like the one we are doing) to
be able to answer this question, so I will just give a few ideas or
thoughts for the readers:
ancient Crystal Skulls are the computers of the ancients, they
contain important information that help humanity to pass through it
current series of challenges to take us into a Golden Age.”
“They were a powerful tool for healing - Body, Mind, Spirit - by
ancient civilizations such as the Mayans or the Atlanteans”
“Today, we have witnessed so many people’s lives profoundly affected
when they have had an opportunity to be in the presence of an ‘ANCIENT’ crystal skull
(healing of all types of illness,
expansion of ones spiritual awareness, bringing to a head emotional
or mental blocks, being a catalyst for a positive change in a
person’s life and the list goes on) or even now, this phenomena is
beginning to happen around the ‘NEW’ crystal skulls.”
Research Been Done to Understand the Skulls?. Yes indeed,
there has been some interesting conducted by the Crystal Skull
Society International in California, headed by crystal skull expert,
Nocerino for almost 60 years.
2001, a group of us formed the World Mystery Research Center
(based in the U.S. and Holland) where we began to focus on two
aspect related to the crystal skulls:
Here a group of researchers based in Belgium, using what is
called a Lecher Antenna (like a dowsing rod but able to measure
specific frequencies of energy) test “Portal de Luz”. They were
amazed to find that our crystal skull was broadcasting all the
same frequencies as a human being: “The senses of ‘Sight’,
‘Smell’, ‘Taste’ and even ‘Hearing’ “
1) To use
various electronic devices to see if we could provide some proof
and understanding why the energy or presence of a crystal skull
is affecting people in such a powerful manner, and our blind
test showed us this was indeed occurring using such devices as
meridian based machines, EEG, lecher antenna and Kirlian
machines sensitive to recording and displaying the Aura.
2) We also discovered secret codes contained within the
crystal skulls in the form of images that came out using a
special process of analysis using scanned images of the crystal
skulls (reversal images that was developed by the Mayans) and
very importantly, the Bible Code (secret information encoded
within the Torah, the first five books of the Old Testament by a
numerical skipping of letters) conclusively discusses the
crystal skulls, their link to the Mayans Prophecy,
speaks about the Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull, their
ability to work as a computer and for healing.
Final Comments from the writer:
I believe the crystal skulls are one of the most important ancient
artifacts that have surfaced into the public’s attention which exist
I believe the crystal skulls hold key information that will
to bring to our world a time of perfect peace and harmony by the
year 2013 (or in the ‘Year Zero’, December 21st, 2012 as stated by
This special date is so significant that my new
wife Desy and I married on December 21st, of last year, in the
presence of our own crystal skulls and images of several ancient
crystal skulls, 10 years before.
Regardless of the sources from which these skulls originated from
(other worlds brought here by the ETs,
Earth, etc …) they are now helping many people to awaken to their
true potential and to see that we are all members of the same
spiritual family who must unite together and work in a cooperative
manner to create a world of peace and harmony for ourselves and the
generations to come.
The Crystal Skulls are a sign
from the Universe and unseen spiritual helpers; that this time of
Peace that has been prophesized is now here and at hand, if we each
could but do what only makes our hearts sing.
Thank you for reading and listening. Hopefully in the near future,
Desy and I will be able to personally meet with you to share the
energies of the crystal skulls as we continue our personal journey
and odyssey all over the world, guided by the presence linked to
these special crystalline friends.
