Welcome to Tales of a Crystal Skull Explorer, Joshua Shapiro here, your host to take you on another exciting adventure into the world of the Crystal Skulls. Now, if you have followed my other articles here at TOSP, you know I write in a very informal style. I call it: “writing as if I was speaking to you in person”.
So if you are ready, let us proceed on this next exploration …..
The title of this article asked a very good question that could impact our world, yes? You have probably heard about the Crystal Skulls before, by now, but how could they be a catalyst for peace when humanity can’t learn how to place nice with each other? Also, why are there so many people feeling drawn to them, to such a degree that these individuals feel compelled to have one or more skulls in their possession? Let delve into this article and find out the answers to such questions and learn more, shall we?
But first we must ask this: “Does our World really need to be Saved and if so from whom or what?” Some of our readers might feel that our world is perfectly ok and doing just fine for them right? Then again, we have just as many readers if not more, who are watching all of the suffering going on all over this Earth basically due to the inappropriate way we are sharing the abundant resources we collectively have which could easily feed, house and care for everyone on the planet. So in order to move forward in this article we will have to assume or suppose that everyone who is reading it believes in their heart, mind and soul, we can do much better and create a harmonious world. Actually, I believe, if we each did our part and by this I mean, doing what makes our “heart sing” we can truely make this world a paradise. But recently, special tools and ancient instruments have been resurfacing, sacred tools used by ancient civilizations and cultures whereas the crystal skulls definitely definitely are of one of these such tools coming back.
Additionally, I have decided that within this article I am going to bombard you with quite a few images to make things more interesting, so please do read the captions below each image. First, let’s do a short review of what the crystal skulls are, and what are some of their capabilities, yes?
As the term “crystal skull” implies (and I have given you a few examples of photos within this article, like the smoky quartz crystal skull I am holding in my picture above so you can easily visualize what they are) it is a skull-shaped object, which was originally comprised from a quartz crystal, primarily shaped in the likeness of a human bone skull. However, today in modern times, we are witnessing crystal skulls being made from all types of gemstones and coming in all type of physical forms including animal and alien skulls even.
In a few of my prior posts on “The Otherside Press”, I have gone into greater details about the energy that seems to be connected with the crystal skulls and how they have changes the lives of the people they touch; but let us just say for the moment (and you will have to believe me about the ideas I am putting forth next after being around them for 32+ years), they have a healing energy and act as a catalyst to awaken people’s spiritual and creative gifts. Also we believe the crystal skulls work like our modern-day computers in which they store energy and knowledge (information) within them which while we may not fully understand how the skulls do this and how we can receive this yet, many people have past life memories of working with the skulls in these ways and that understanding these capabilities will be known quite soon. Finally, and this is just a theory, we think the crystal skulls might be tools that came from the Gods (the ETs or dimensional beings) that were left on the earth to greatly assist with the spiritual evolution of humanity.
Now if you consider what I just shared in the last paragraph, the capabilities and services which a crystal skull offers has the potential to change every person they have contact with us and this is pretty darn amazing wouldn’t you say? Considering that basically we are really, in simple truth, just speaking about a mineral that has been shaped into the form of a human skull. Why should their be anything special about such a formed object? However, below, is one conclusion we have how the crystal skull function. This statement is based upon our personal research and approach we have to used to understand the crystal skulls, a kind of scientific approach if you will, that is based upon the observable activities surrounding the skulls and the type of effects they are having upon the reports we receive from other crystal skull guardians all over the planet. Reports I should say that are repeatedly be discussed publicly and with us (the crystal skull explorers) in person or via email communications and this is:
There appears to be a living consciousness which is working through the crystal skulls and having a daily interaction and communication with their respective crystal skull guardian or keeper. The symptoms of this interaction is that the crystal skull will almost always give to their guardian a name and then use the spiritual gifts of their guardian to communicate with them, just like a live person. So the various forms of communication that these guardians report to us includes: telepathic communication (For example: I hear our personal skulls speak to me via the thinking voice I hear inside of me, my mind’s voice when I read or write or the inner voice which helps me when I give my public talks so spontaneously), where either the guardian hear the words within themselves or as a voice outside of their ears; they could have a vision that comes to them from their skull (or skulls); they could have an instaneously knowingness while around their skull; they might actually see the being or beings who are communicating through the skull around it or as aura colors flowing over the skull and so on … We speculate that this living consciousness are other beings (spirit or dimensional) who see the crystal skull as a communication device to have a way to have contact with us. And then since, they are acting like a human being, an individual person, it is not so strange or scary for us to accept this communication.
Now let us move on to how could the re-emergence of the crystal skulls (note: many people have felt since the crystal skulls only have begun coming into the public’s eye since the middle part of the 1800’s, that they were hidden for a long time [to protect them until the right time to come out??] and now their re-emergence is a sign of some type of prophecy that a golden age or positive future is ahead?) is very involved in assisting or helping our world to create world peace? Well this answer is really quite simple – if we just look at the case of some form of healing that goes on around the skulls, obviously, there is some form of higher intelligence which knew that since the skulls look like us, people would be drawn to them and be curious about them.
For some people even, it could be a past life memory of having worked with the crystal skulls before and that they were a catalyst to bring that person a happy and joyful life by balancing them energetically and healing any illness or physical injuries. We have already measured these energies eminated around the skulls with all kinds of electro-magnetic sensitive devices that clearly show there is a healing or energizing field around them. And it doesn’t seem to matter if the skull is a very very old one or a relative new one (although for the newly made crystal skulls it depends upon who is their guardian and their intention how they work with this skull as well as how they have been activated or brought it to life). What quite a few guardians are doing are different type of meditations with their crystal skulls to send out a positive energy to our world or they are going to sacred sites on the planets and doing their prayers, meditations or ceremonies there. We know also, that some of the indigenous people on our world also have their own crystal skulls (such as the Mayans, Aztec, some Native American, Tibetan, etc …) and are including the skulls in their sacred ceremonies which have been handed down from generation to generation, usually performed privately to be able to protect these sacred artifacts so they are not stolen or taken away and misused in the modern world.
This then bring us to one of the key activities I want to share with our readers, that of the Crystal Skull World Peace Meditations we began to offer on January 1st, 2009. But before I talk about this, let us make a simple assumption, which I hope you will understand and agree with me. Let us assume that if a human being, a crystal skull guardian, does a meditation by him or herself, and focuses on sending out a loving and peace energy, that on some level the energy from such a meditation will and does benefit our world. Well, we do know from a spiritual perspective that we are all inwardly connected, thus for any spiritual or paranormal student this is a given. But one of the keys that seems to be known within the community of people who work and studying the properties and effects of any type of quartz crystal or the different gemstones people have in their possession, is that these stones will balance and expand the energy field around the human body as well as amplify what we are thinking and visualizing. Many people have reported to us, how powerful it has been for them to meditate with their personal crystal skulls as well as the positive changes that have come into their life by repeatedly meditating and working with their skulls. But what if, we imagine two people doing the same meditation for world peace working with their crystal skull – what if three or four people do it – what could happen?
This is the whole point and reason for the World Peace Meditations that we do each month working with one of our personal crystal skulls. Normally for this meditation (although we never know for sure how many people) we have at least a few hundred people joining us from various countries around the world. So each time another person joins us for the meditation, it is like a geometric multiple of the power of the positive and loving energy we are generating to send out to all life on the planet. I am bringing up this meditation becausse it basically has been an ongoing process since the beginning of 2009 (although we did stop for the first part of 2011, but other friends picked up doing a form of the mediation for us and then we started it up again in the late part of 2011 and have been going strong ever since).
Essentially how the meditation works, and there is a way to join us, even if you don’t have your own crystal skull (which it is easy to get one these days – thousands are available on e-bay for example, in local crystal stores or we can help you with the contact of modern carvers that we know as we have probablyhelped over 1000 people since 2009) is that on the 13th day of each month, at the 13th hour, a person either sits quietly alone in some location (their home, at work, outside in nature, etc …) or within a group of people, holding their person skull and listens to an mp3 recording guiding the meditation. This mediation we offer on-line spoken by my beloved Katrina, who leads those who join us in about a 15 minute guided meditation. Now because everyone is doing this meditation at 1 PM or 13:00 their local time, we have quite a number of the timezones covered during that day. But what if the 13th of the month comes out on a work day or you can’t do it at 1 PM (13:00) because you are already engaged? Well since we believe time doesn’t really exist (but all time is simultaneous), you can do the meditation before the appointed time (like the night before) and send the energy from your session forward in time to 1 PM (13:00) on the meditation day.
Now I would like to discuss the interesting history how this meditation came to be. But before I do, if you are curious what it is all about and how the meditation works (besides the mp3 audio file, the meditation is written out on the page below as well) just head over to:
(note: if you read this article after 2016, the meditation as discussed is still valid or just change the url and put in your current year for 2015 and it will still work)
History of the Crystal Skull World Peace Meditation
I am not sure of the exact year we started, it could have been in the late 1990’s I do believe, but we did organize via our website at V J Enterprise to do a meditation linked with the crystal skulls every sunday, just a simple meditation where we sent out a pink energy of love all over the world that came from the skulls. Back at this time too, we started our crystal skull mailing list on Yahoo as well, so that is where most people came from who originally joined us for the meditation and we also shared this meditation in our free crystal skull e-book (see resources listed at the end of this article). So this early promoted weekly meditation was the pre-cursor to the one we are doing now, you could say it was a building block if it were to get us here.
The next key activity which happened, that inspired what would become the world peace meditation as we know today, has to do with a contact I had with the well known Israeli Psychic, the “Spoon Bender”, Uri Geller. I am not sure at the present moment if Mr. Geller still lives in England but in the early part of 2001, I with two friends, all very connected with crystals and crystal skulls met Mr. Geller at a local hotel in London. Prior to meeting him, we had just gone to the British Museum, where the British Museum Crystal Skull (a full size single piece clear quartz skull discovered in Mexico in the 1860’s) was on special display on loan from the now defunct British Museum of Man, a sister museum. The reason I had sought Mr. Geller out is we knew he had a strong affinity for quartz crystals and I asked him if I could do an interview with him (which unfortunately the casette that holds that interview is long gone) which he agreed to. For the 30 minute interview he gave us, he did hold my personal crystal skull “Portal de Luz” (Portal of Light, the skull I am holding in the first photo of this article) which no doubt received some of the special energies that Mr. Geller channels (he believes his gift started when he had a UFO encounter in Israel when he was young). But after this interview, Mr. Geller invited me to appear on his radio show of the time (which was broadcast via the internet and via some U.S. based radio stations even though he did his interviews while in England) which I arranged to appear on my 46 birthday, April 17th, 2001 (BTW, on April 17th, 2000, I went to the Museum of Man in London to see their crystal skull with “Portal de Luz” with me but they stated they didn’t show the skull privately to anyone …).
Now there are two significant things which took place during the radio show interview I had with Mr. Geller – #1 – as soon as we spoke about the crystal skulls (and “Portal de Luz” was next to me as I was doing this interview over the phone, Mr. Geller called me from England), the internet broadcast of the radio stopped. I had this happen to me once before, in 1999, when I visited Las Vegas and a friend did a simulcast like this except over the internet the video portion broadcast and the audio part was done on a local radio station. The video camera had been tested and was working perfectly but as soon as our interview started, the camera stopped working and wouldn’t start up again till the show was over (OH “Portal” what were you doing in those days???).
However, as related to this article, we come to the second key aspect of the interview which happened in that Mr. Geller asked me the following question, “So Joshua, how can the crystal skulls be used in a way to help create world peace?” — well I was on the spot I just answered with the first thought which came to me at that moment as I shared (as we had been doing these meditations on Sunday): what if we could gather and bring together at the same time as many of the crystal skull guardians in the world, to perform a specific meditatation for world peace, this could be a very powerful way to offer a collective harmonious energy for our world, would it not? So it was in that precise moment that an idea was implanted within me which I have never forgotten, that perhaps there was a way we could take our meditations a bit more seriously and to a higher level. But I didn’t know what to do to make this a reality and by this time in my life, you know how it is, people were getting tired of doing the same thing week after week with the meditation, so it suffered a slow death until something new would take its place.
It took over 7 years, till we come to the magical year of 2008. What was so magical about this year was that Speilburg and Lucas decided to make the artifact that “Indy” goes looking for a “Crystal Skull” in the 4th edition of the Indiana Jones movies. At the end of 2007 when we heard this announcement we were in shock and we didn’t believe it but when the posters came out for the film and the trailer we knew it was true and we prayed and hoped they would portray the crystal skulls properly. Now if you know the TV show Star Gate – SG1, in the 4th season they did do a very good portrayal of a crystal skull and shared some real history, but unfortunately the producers of Indiana Jones #4 utilized the Hollywood tradition and the film didn’t really show the crystal skull as they really are. However, in that year I had more media interviews in a short time than ever before and many more people in the world learned the crystal skulls were indeed real. But now, we must discuss the Italian conference which took place in June of 2008, right after the film had come out.
From the end of 2001 till the early part of 2008, I was living in Holland. However, it was time for me to return home to the U.S. as what I was doing in Europe had finished. So by February of 2008 I was back in America and then I had an opportunity to be interviewed at the home of Bill Homann, the current guardian of the “Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull”, for the Syfy Crystal Skull two-hour documentary where they even recorded us doing some crystal skull energy researching using a device called a Meridian Stress Test system (this devices uses an electrode to meassure the energy at various meridian points in your hands and feets and is very accurate) at a local high school in Indiana (where Mr. Homann lived at the time) with both the “Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull” and “Portal de Luz”. This research provided us some fascinating insights about energetically how both skulls function and what effect they had our test subjects but it was never shown on their documentary.
Anyway, this special interview gave me a chance to reconnect with my good friend Bill and since I was living in the Chicago area at this moment, when the organizers of the Italian Crystal Skull Conference invited us both to attend and do a presentation (May 2008), we flew on the same plane to Italy from Chicago. I should also mention that in February of this year, I returned to Bill’s home (after the visit with the Syfy camera people) and not only did a 25 minute video interview with him but got a chance to have a 20 minute private session with the “Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull” which forever changed my life; it was amazing and energizing and I will speak about that experience at another time in a future article.
Anyway, once we arrived in Italy (I forget which large city it was but it was in the northern part of the country), a strange series of experiences happened to me. First, our bags didn’t arrive on time so we only had the clothes on our backs for a few days. Second, at a dinner held at the home of one of the organizers, the same day we arrived, before the conference started, when Bill brought out the “Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull” from its protective bag, so the organizers and helpers of the conference could have an early direct experience with the skull before all the participants would arrive, I started to become immediately sick. I had a sore throat by the end of the evening and a fever started the next day. This was a strange response to the skull after 3 months earlier when meditating with it I like I was in heaven with its powerful healing energy.
As it turned out, on the day of the conference when I had to do a one hour talk, I still had a fever. However, being the typical Aries I am, I had no intention not to provide the lecture that I promised to do and had been invited to do, that included a paid roundtrip ticket, hotel and meals, so I stayed in bed till the very last minute and arrived at the conference just in time to do my talk. It didn’t help matters that where I was sitting with the other speakers, the “Mitchell-Hedges Skull” was directly in front of me but I put all my physical energy I had into giving my talk and share all the information I had to discuss. However, as soon as I finished, I was so exhausted that I put my head on the table with the other speakers and I passed totally out.
The head of the conference was a very sensitive man and he couldn’t very well send me back to the U.S. in this condition so I stayed four extra days at the home of one of the other organizers of the conference to rest and gain my strenth. However, and this is the key linked to the World Peace Meditation, I remember waking up one morning and I had in my head, exactly how to do the first version of the new world peace meditation with the crystal skull and which dates to perform this meditation for the next year. We would start on January 1st, 2009, (I first announced this new set of meditations on August 8th, 2008 or what was known as the 8-8-8) the first meditation and then in 2009 we did other meditations surrounding dates which the number of the date added up to the number 13, like February 1st, 2008 (2 +1 + 2 + 8 = 13).
Now you may have noticed that I keep referring to the number 13 linked to these meditations, why is this? Some of you may have heard there is a prophecy told by various indigenous cultures living in our world which state there is a set of 13 master crystal skulls. That at one time in the past these 13 special crystal skulls were together (in Atlantis?) but that they were scattered all over the world (perhaps due to the destruction of Atlantis). In any case, this prophecy further states that when these thirteen master skulls return and come back together, in the same place at the same time, their combined frequencies and energies will help shift our world into a time of peace, or a “Golden Age”. Now whether such legends exist or are even true, I can’t say but my intuition and gut feeling alway says there is a great deal of truth surrounding this prophecy. So in our meditation we honor the number of 13 throughout.
After the first year of doing these new meditations (we did about 4 or 5 total meditations in that year), one of our participants suggested for 2010 we should shift it and begin to do 13 meditations each year. How this would work is the crystal skull world peace meditation would take place in each year beginning on January 1st and then we would follow this up with the other meditations on the 13th of each month, at the 13th hour. And thus we have kept this format since then. Since 2009 we have probably done almost 70 meditations by now. And while it was my hope that we would eventually see many of the crystal skull guardians living today joining us, we have yet to reach this goal. I was hopeful more of the guardians who claim to have the ancient or very old skulls would be very excited by these meditations as most of these guardians share with the people who come to meet their crystal skull how they are here for peace. Never-the-less, the door is always open to any crystal skull guardian to be a part of the meditation as we make no distinction on a person joining us being any more special or better than any other. However, we are always grateful to all those who do join us and we have had some of the guardians with these olders skulls be a part of it which is always a good feeling. Each time we do this meditation, once a month it kind of feels as if we linking up with our true spiritual or extended family to help co-create a special day sharing a loving and positive energy with the entire world and what can be better than this?
Another important aspect linked to our monthly mediations which I feel is happening each time we perform them is that we are building on the energy that was generated from all the meditations before. This is similar to what happened (for those of you who are familiar with this case) with the Scole Experiment Group led by Robin and Sandra Foy. This couple led a spiritual circle in the cellar of their home from 1994 -1998 in Scole, England. The spirit team they were working with requested that they place a Glass Bell Dome in the center of the circular table they sat around for each session in order to store and build up the composite energy in the room. This energy had three components, the energy of the ley lines of the earth which the cellar was sitting on top of, the energies from the people sitting in the circle and the energies being transported into our reality from spirit. So as this energy built up, store in the bell dome, it was easier for their spirit team to create their physical manifestations in the cellar. I believe, we are doing the same thing in that we are building a collective energy from all the meditations we have done since 2009, and thus able to link into this loving energy from before which just keeps building and building. Plus we repeatedly get reports from participants of these mediations how powerful the energy we are co-creating is and how it touches them as well as being stored within their person crystal skulls.
Plus, if the crystal skulls are a catalyst for awakening people to their spiritual and creative gifts – this due no doubt to the energy they are subtly broadcasting as they activate different people at different times. And it stands to reason that as more and more people are becoming spiritual aware of who they are within, this then is opening up more of the collective awareness of humanity as one day we will sing the same song in our souls which will eventually guide us into a world of peace.
And now in Conclusion including Another Special Announcement
So it seems dear readers, that no matter where I turn in my spiritual and paranormal studies, there are powerful links with the crystal skulls that suggest the return of the skulls coming out to the public is not some random act, or just happenstance, but it is linked to a series of divinely inspired events which are unfolding in our world to take us into a higher vibration state and awakening.
Additionally, I want to mention again about Crystal Skull World Day (CSWD) which began last year and will be contining on Sunday, November 22nd, 2015 of this year. The organizers of this event is a group of 17 crystal skull guardians who call themselves The Crystal Skull Hearts Council. For this year, a special audio is being prepared that will include indigenous prayers in their native language with a 10-15 minute guided meditation with the participants working with one of their personal crystal skulls. I already know there will be several public gathering taking place as we had last year in different parts of the world and hopefully again on this day, we will be joined by various indigenous elders doing their own special ceremony. Once again the goal of this day is to ask for each crystal skull guardian to linkup in one of the meditation times on this day for a brief period and share and create together a peaceful energy amplified by the skulls. Both Katrina and I are serving as co-sponsors and have helped to setup two public gatherings around the Seattle area. If you would like to know more about this day and see if you wish to join us, head over to:
(Note: there is a free document (PDF format) you can see in various languages with others to inform them about this day or you can download the logo and link to the CSWD 2015 website above on your own site).
While working to help with CSWD 2014 , I had the extreme pleasure to meet Jose Federico Munoz, who is a Mayan Daykeeper from Guatemala. Jose is one of the very few elders I know who is also traveling with a clear quartz crystal skull that has special energies and was gifted to him a few years ago. What is very remarkable is that he is including his crystal skull and inviting other people to bring their skulls as well, to be a part of the numerous sacred ceremonies that he has organized, mostly focused in the western part of the U.S. So here we have another visible example of how the crystal skulls are being utitlized to create a peaceful energy for the planet and reconnecting with the natural energies of “Mother Earth”. I met Jose in person for the first time in April of this year (2015) at a gathering of elders in Sedona, Arizona and we did a joint presentation together. Jose also right now is sharing with people about the 23 sacred calendars the Mayans have guarded for many years of which one is called a “Crystal Skull Calendar”. The Mayan elders through their messenger Jose, claim if we would return and live by these sacred calendars, putting us in harmony with galactic and universal energies and cycles, this would bring a time of peace to our world.
So I absolutely do believe, that the return of the crystal skulls is a very powerful visible sign of the extra help and love we are receiving from our galactic family to help us make planet Earth into a harmonious and peaceful world. I do believe that the various world peace meditations linked with the skulls and which are on-going, all of them are of tremendous assistance to helping to share these loving energies with all life on the planet. So what do you think? Will you join us for one of these meditations? Is it time to have a crystal skull as a special tool to help you in your spiritual evolution and be part of our monthly events?
Finally, I wanted to share with the readers, a special new project we have begun which is going on concurrently as I was writing this new article for the column (August 2015). By the time you read this article (or shortly thereafter) we will be providing a new on-line service through the new version of our website that we are developing (to make it easier to find things and get around). We are going to offer a special membership service late in the summer of 2015, where our members are going to receive parts (chapters) of each of the two novel we are currently writing now. One of these novels is based upon a movie script that show what happens when 13 crystal skulls come back together – we couldn’t get the movie down so we are doing the novel. A second novel will be about a journey a paranormal investigator, author and public speak takes (he is invited) into another dimension through a dimensional gate or portal and then comes back to share his full experience, with answers to the questions of our existence humanity has been asking forever. Both of these novels are going to require three books to share their full stories. In each case, since I am not a novelist but I am the author of the stories, a friend who is such a writer is helping me. Besides sharing a chapter from each novel each month, I will also be sharing audio interviews I have been doing with special teachers as well. We will give our members a higher discount on the products we sell and finally I will have a place to share from a wealth of information I have collected over 30 years that I haven’t been able to do with my books or current websites. This membership service will also begin to introduce the new website we will eventually be using.
If you would like to know more about our work or the new membership services, here are some of the key on-line resource we have which we share:
