One of the Most Powerful Healing Tools On the Planet – What are They?
Why the Crystal Skulls of course!
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, the Paranormal and various World Mysteries. So for this next part of my column, lets talk about some thoughts about crystal skulls as a powerful tool for personal healing.
So if you are ready then, time to proceed on to our next exploration ….. into the land of the Crystal Skulls and how these sacred tools can be used to expand oneself as well as discuss the most famous crystal skull that exists and how you can meet this skull!
Let’s talk about in this special article a wondrous tool for healing that is very accessible to most everyone as well as is being utilized by thousands of people all over the world right now for a variety of purposes, even beyond healing purposes. If you haven’t guessed it by now, what I plan to discuss it is how the crystal skulls are an amazing tool for bringing forth special healing energies and how they work. However, please note, I will be finishing this article by sharing about one particular crystal skull that is the most famous and known as a powerful “healing skull”. A crystal skull which has forever changed my life after I have had several opportunities to visit with it and be in this skull’s presence not so long ago. Now, let us move on ….
But first, every person who deals with healing has their own idea and philosophy about what this is all about. So I thought I should give my two sense first, so the reader will have an idea from which side of the road I am coming from. The concept of healing to me is about being in balance. That is, to honor that within each of us is our masculine side (logic and strategy, thinking) and our feminine side (creative, flowing and more emotional). This means we must find a way during the course of our life to honor the time we need to be responsible so we can get the activities done that support our livelihood but also, to make time for the child within to play and do fun things. No matter how old you are, you have to let that inner child come out. The ultimate key for creating this balance, in my humble opinion is to discover which of all the possible activities you may engage in while here on Earth, makes your heart sing the most? Do you know?
The key to being healthy and happy is to honor yourself, not be so critical of any self perceived weaknesses and actively pursue those activities which bring to you the greatest joy. We all have our own gifts – for me writing articles, blogs, reports or books along with organizing special events and doing my public talks is what I truly love to do, of course, working closely with my divine life partner Katrina. So while I do work hard and spend a lot of time investigating these crystal skulls and also, I am constantly challenging myself to find new ways to sharing information about them publicly (by setting up new and unique special events); I do have other interests as well that I enjoy to do and make time for it. All work and no play is definitely not the way to go. If we love our self and honor our self, life will show us what is the correct path to follow.
Remember however, whatever actions and activities bring happiness for you may not be appropriate for anyone else living on this Earth. So it’s not a good idea to try to compare your lifestyle and life activities to what other individuals engage in that creates a satisfying life for them.
Now in order to see how the crystal skulls are linked to “Healing” we need to speak about “Energy”. What do I mean by “Energy”? Well an example of a form of energy is Sunlight. The rays of the Sun help to give vitality to plants to be alive. We could think of the food we eat as another form of energy that helps to keep a person active and alert. But the type of energy I am speaking about linked to the crystal skulls is invisible – and it is being emanated outwardly by certain objects like quartz crystals, as a field of energy or a solid force. In this article, we will focus on quartz crystals as it is a key gemstone that comprises some of the most powerful skulls.
Now my primary and strongest spiritual gift that I have is my ability to feel the emanation of energy that comes from people, or animals or plants or even stones. I sense and feel this energy on my body. I have learned how to interpret what I feel from this energy into words to explain what type of energy field it is. For example, around each crystal skull there is a field or force that can be measured. How this force could be experienced by a person is described below:
1) a slight or strong pressure on your body which is a confirmation the crystal skull is emanating an energy outward from it;
2) It could be like a heat upon your body which to me represents an energy to heal something inside of you that is out of balance;
3) It could feel like a coolness on your body, this represents as I understand it an energy that is in balance and you are flowing with it completely;
4) You could feel the energy field coming from the crystal skull totally lifting you up and making you feel very light and peaceful or calm – this would be a type of energy field that is be projected outward to help you grow spiritually – it is moving and shifting the vibration in your body to a higher level.
Another factor I have discovered that is linked to the crystal skulls are that when a crystal skull is activated (either by the people from past advanced civilizations or with a modern crystal skull made by a carver that the guardian awakens), there appears to be a living consciousness which enters into the crystal skull works through it which presents itself as a type of human personality. Let me explain this idea a bit better.
For me, quartz crystals (and I won’t be speaking about other gemstones in this article BTW) has the property that it can function like a dimensional door to allow energies from higher vibrational planes of existence to come into our reality. Quartz additionally allows us to make contact with the minds of other intelligent beings who exist in these higher planes as well. So it is my feeling that when I have an inner telepathic dialogue with a crystal skull (this intelligence uses my minds voice which is the voice I hear when I write and read) it is an intelligent being or a group of beings who are using this door to come into our reality and then animate the crystal skull to appear to be alive. So if this is true, it is a way for our spiritual family on the other side to be able to more directly help us with the impression that their help is coming through a physical being which we can see, touch and hear. Thus, this is a very comfortable way that “Spirit” can send us healing energies without causing fear or panic.
Another aspect in working with a crystal skull is that it looks like us – the first crystal skulls found in Mexico and Central America were in shape of a human bone skull. So when you are dialoguing with a crystal skull (whether it’s a telepathic message, a feeling your receive or you hear an external voice speaking to you) you feel as if you are speaking to a person – because when we talk to each other we look at the other person’s head. This is why the crystal skulls will tell their guardians about a name they have, it makes it easier for us to speak about the crystal skull if it has a name and a personality as the crystal skull is emulating being a human being.
I will use one of our personal skulls as an example. We have a 10 lb smoky quartz skull which was made by a master carver in Brazil. I was inspired to give him this name “Portal de Luz” (which is Portuguese since the carver spoke Portuguese) which means “Portal of Light” or “Portal” for short. And this name is a reflection of part of the service “Portal” does in that he is a bridge into other universes and dimensions which allow the higher frequencies (the Light) to come through him and be present. He also acts as a kind of bridge to connect with other intelligences in these universes. Plus, he is a jack of all trade as well – he does many things quite easily – and he tells me he is also a representative of “HIS” total crystal skull family like an ambassador. Therefore, when people work with “HIM” or have an experience with “HIM”, even though he is a modern made skull, he does give to people an idea of the energies that are linked to all the crystal skulls in the world. Further, while the carving of “Portal” was done just in 1998, the spirit (or spirits) who are working through “HIM” are very very old, ancient and wise.
So I hope so far I have been able to explain to some degree (as this is a somewhat difficult and complex subject) how the crystal skulls can be amazing tools for healing. The skull not only help to bring us back into balance and good health but to assist in opening up our awareness to other levels of our soul and spirit that we can integrate into our physical life too. Now let’s look at that famous crystal skull I was referring to at the start of this article and share with you an important announcement of a special opportunity coming up that you may wish to partake of.
Really the first crystal skull to become very well known to the general public is the Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull. This crystal skull is named after the Mitchell-Hedges family who comes from England. You see, F. A. Mitchell-Hedges led an expedition to British Honduras (now Belize) in 1923 and they discovered this crystal skull inside a pyramid in an ancient Mayan ruin. Besides, that this is one of the first human-sized and shaped crystal skulls to publicly surface, it is acutely recognized because of the quality of workmanship that was needed to create this crystal skull. The Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull is an almost exact duplicate of a human bone skull and in 1923, there did not exist the technology we have today (diamond tip tools, saws and drills) to make such an amazing crystal skull. And thus, since supposedly we are the most advance culture to exist on Planet Earth ever, how is this possible? Could this Crystal Skull have been created by an unknown technology that they had in Atlantis? Or was it a gift that came to the Meso-American people from the Gods in the skies? In any case, this crystal skull is the one that made people sit up and take notice.
Over the years, the Mitchell-Hedges family has allowed many people to see this crystal skull and there have been reports of various people with physical, emotional or mental problems receiving miraculously healings once they came into the presence of this crystal skull. Anna Mitchell-Hedges also said publicly, that the crystal skull was used by the Mayans, who were the previous guardians, in two different ways. One was when an old Priest was dying they would have a young man lie down on the ground next to this old (dying) Priest and put the crystal skull in between them. Then the knowledge of the old Priest would go into the mind of the young man and be preserved. Secondly according to Ms. Mitchell-Hedges, if there was a person in the tribe who was very ill and in terrible pain, a Priest would work with the skull and have the skull will this ill person to die a peaceful death to release their pain in a kind way.
For myself, of all the Crystal Skulls I have been privileged to personally visit since 1983, the Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull has affected me the most powerfully and changed my life forever. In 2008, I came into contact with the Mitchell-Hedges Skull twice. Once in the home of the current guardian Bill Homann (when Miss Mitchell-Hedges passed away in 2007, Mr. Homann a very good friend of hers who supported her at the end of her life, he inherited the crystal skull) living in Indiana where I did about a 20 minute meditation session with the Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull directly in front of me. During this meditation, I had three of my personal skulls around the Mitchell-Hedges Skull and after a few moments, I felt the energy in the room around me became so calm and peaceful that I felt like I was in Heaven.
After about ten minutes, then I felt a unusual presence just show up in the room, as I sensed it in the air above the Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull and to my right. It told me telepathically it was a living Universal Consciousness (felt like a group or collective of several souls acting as one). This living consciousness seemed to know everything there was to know about me. After this encounter, I found I could very easily stay more in the neutral about events happening around me and in our world. Plus, I didn’t need to make judgments about anyone else, I could just accept who each person is and its fine how they wish to live their life whether I agree or not. That all things which happen to us in our lives are in divine perfection and here to teach us how to be the best we can be no matter how long it takes. We are always granted “FREE WILL” to explore all options and possibilities in life.
The second time that year I was with this crystal skull, Mr. Homann and I flew from Chicago to Italy for a one day crystal skull conference. Once again, during this trip, I had some very powerful experiences when I was near the crystal skull. After we arrived, Mr. Homann and I were taken to the home of one of the main organizers of the conference to meet the team. They made us a wonderful Italian meal I recall. And then, of course everyone presented want to see the crystal skull privately before the conference started. However, after Mr. Homann took the Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull out of its case, I almost immediately started to become sick with a sore throat and eventually I had a high fever. I had to stay in bed at the hotel till the very last minute on the day of the conference so when I did my one hour presentation I would have enough strength to finish it. Whereupon, at my presentation’s conclusion; I lost consciousness when my head hit the table (where our crystal skulls were sitting upon including the Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull) where all the speakers were sitting at on the stage.
Therefore I had to stay in Italy an extra four days to fully recover before I could fly back to Chicago. But on one of these mornings while I was still in Italy, I woke up and I received exactly how to do a series of Crystal Skull World Peace Meditations which we now do each month. So as you can see, the Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull is a powerful catalyst that takes you in special and unexpected directions in your life.
Thus, as you can imagine, everyone, and I mean everyone, wants to have a chance, at least once in their lifetime, to see and experience the Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull directly. So this is our special announcement I am making in this article that we have a way how you can do this during the summer (July 24th through July 3rd, 2016) if you are ready. :–)
I am good friends with Mr. Homann, we have known each other since the early 1990’s. The first time I met him, was when we entertained in Chicago my good friend Joke van Dieten (she and her family have a collection of 10 very old skulls) who came to visit us in America in our apartment near Chicago (she was living in Holland at the time). Ms. van Dieten had purchased an old Mayan Skull, from a crystal dealer in Los Angeles in 1991 who received it from a family in Guatemala. In 1906 or so, they had dug up this skull from the ground on their property. I just happened to be in the Los Angeles area when Ms. van Dieten officially bought this skull. Also it turns out Ms. van Dieten found the crystal dealer listed in my first crystal skull book so I think I was suppose to be around at this time (destiny). I saw this new crystal skull for the first time as did Ms. van Dieten did. She decided to call this smoky quartz Mayan skull, “ET” because the shape of the head was like an extraterrestrial’s head.
Anyway when Ms. van Dieten visited with me in Chicago for Christmas in 1992, I heard that Anna Mitchell-Hedges was living in Indiana with her good friend Bill Homann. So we brought the Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull together with “ET” at Mr. Homann’s home. I could feel energetically when these two old skulls were next to each other, they knew each other and had been together some time before in our (far) past. This was the first time I met Mr. Homann and over the years we would periodically meet at restaurants to discuss our love for the crystal skulls and anything new developments. When the Syfy channel did their two hour crystal skull documentary I was interviewed in Mr. Homann’s home and that is how I setup to visit with him and the skull in his home a few weeks later.
So the good news is that we are working together with Mr. Homann right now, at the time of the release of this article, to bring the Mitchell-Hedges Skull to the Seattle area where we will be offering two different type of events: a) private sessions with the crystal skull and Bill Homann; b) a public presentation with talks by Mr. Homann and myself, followed by a world peace meditation led by Bill. And then to finish this presentation we will give the attendees a chance to come up close to the Mitchell-Hedges Skull and experience the healing energies that this skull emanates.
So, if you would like a chance to meet the Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull during this summer tour, we have setup a special webpage on our website, with all the details, the schedule, the prices and how to make your reservation. Just head over to:
So in conclusion, the Crystal Skulls that come from antiquity I believe were gifts to humanity from the Gods (more advanced space fairing cultures) to help us create world peace. The crystal skulls are spiritual mirrors that can reflect back to us who we truly are inside and act as a powerful catalyst to awaken many people to realize their spiritual essence. There was a Polish healer I once knew, who we worked with closely in Poland around 2003 and 2004; as we shared the crystal skulls during this time with many people. My God we did hundreds of private healing sessions too (more than I have ever done in a short period in my life!). Anyway, this magnetic Polish healer saw a crystal skull as a portable medicine bag, in that when you are not feeling well, you take out the crystal skull, just hold it for a time and you became more calm as it took away any physical pain and discomfort. I think this is a good way to end this article to describe the crystal skulls.
Hope you enjoyed this new contribution,
