In 1986 the three co-authors decided to produce a book about the mysterious
Crystal Skulls. Going through a tedious process of transcribing interviews
with various Crystal Skull researchers and spiritual channels beginning in
1986 they published the first edition of this book in time for the Whole
Life Expo in Los Angeles, in February of 1987. This version consisted of
pages created on a Macintosh Computer and printed on a Laser Printer.

In 1987, they met several key people including a professional book designer
and two very talented New Age artists and decided to self publish a more
professional version of the book. Some of the channeled interviews were
removed and a new interview with co-author Ms. Bowen was added. A
professional editor helped and the book was completed in November of 1988
to be turned into a professional printer with the first books sold in
March of 1989.

The excerpts contained within this file are portions of the book to give
the reader some information related to the ancient human sized Crystal
Skulls. Basically an ancient Crystal Skull is defined as a human sized
and shaped skull made from various quartz crystals that have been
discovered near or around ancient ruins in Mexico or Central America. We
also have reports of some skulls being in Peru as well. There are many
what we call Contemporary Skulls (i.e. - skulls which have been crafted
by modern carvers ranging in size from the size of a marble to human size
and larger), but these contemporary skulls generally do not possess the
precision of craftsmanship or details as the ancient skulls.

SANDRA BOWEN - Crystal and Crystal Skull Teacher and Researcher. Sandra was
part of the Research Team that went to Canada to work with the Mitchell-
Hedges Skull in November of 1985. She is a co-founder of J & S Aquarian
Networking, and has lectured with Joshua Shapiro on the Crystal Skulls and
UFOs. Sandra has worked very closely with and supported the work of Nick
Nocerino. She had a UFO experience in connection with the Crystal Skulls
in 1981. Sandra also conducts psychic development classes and offers
spiritual readings, especially for people who have had contact with UFOs.

MICHAEL KANT - Michael is a Planetary Light Worker who continues to work
with the Higher Evolution in key areas of education which make use of
Planetary Technologies and the Sacred Sciences. Having been abroard
Lightships in times past and learned from a diverse spectrum of beings,
Michael continues to work in such key Planetary Technologies such as
Atlantean Crystal Sciences, Morphocrystallic Sciences, Lemurian
Technologies and Light-based Technologies. Currently he is in communication
and contact with galactic races who originate form the distant star systems
of Pleiades.

STEVE MEHLER - Steve is a Psychic Archaeologist, scientist and researcher.
He was a staff member of the Rosicrucian Museum in San Jose, California,
and then became involved with the Mayan and Amethyst Crystal Skulls, which
he had in his home for short periods of time. Steve had many other crystal
researchers come to work with the skulls. Also, since then he has begun
to work actively in researching crystals and doing free-lance video work.

F. R. 'NICK' NOCERINO - Founder of the Society of Crystal Skulls Inter-
national, a division of the Institue of Psychic and Hypnotic Sciences.
Nick is known as a teacher of teachers. He can be credited for starting
the Crystal Skulls' popularity that is sweeping the metaphysical
community today. Nick has been the only known researcher to see and work
with many of the skulls discussed in this book, for example, the Rose
Quartz Skull and the Templar Skull. He established the first teacher's
credential for Parapsychology issued by the California State Board of
Education. His qualifications in the field of Parapsychology are attributed
to his continuing research and the factual data he has compiled. Nick has
worked as a research consultant for documentaries on parapsychology-related
films, radio and TV shows, books and magazines. Some of the areas of his
expertise are: Crystals and Crystal Skull researcher/lecturer, psychic
development classes, hauntings investigations, exorcisms, private
consultations, UFO research and regressions (since 1950). Nick is currently
writing his memoirs and has completed two videos about the Crystal Skulls.

Johnson's Close Encounters. Joshua is an Aquarian Age Networker as well
as a Computer programmer/analyst for micro-computers. He has given numerous
lectures in the U.S. and South America about Crystal Skulls, UFOs, Peru
(his wife offers metaphysical tours to Peru) and New Age Networking. He
has provided spiritual consultations for people and is the creator of
NANET (The New Age Computer Networking System), to help link New Age
resources and contacts in a local geographic area.


(Included in the Book and a few additional ones
which have come to the attention of Joshua Shapiro)

MITCHELL-HEDGES CRYSTAL SKULL - The most well known ancient human sized
crystal skull. Currently it is owned by Anna Mitchell Hedges (Ontario,
Canada). It was discovered in 1924 by an expedition led by Anna's father,
F. A. Mitchell-Hedges to British Honduras, looking for evidence of Atlantis.
This skull is made from complete clear quartz crystal, is an almost
exact duplicate of our own human skull and is comprised of two pieces,
including a detachable jaw and cranium. When Anna's father died, she
came into charge of the skull. This skull has been on display at numerous
New Age conferences and Anna shares at libraries and schools for the

BRITISH CRYSTAL SKULL - This skull came into the possession of a Soldier of
Fortune traveling through Mexico in the late 1890's. Tiffany's a New York
Jeweler than acquired it and in 1898, it was sold to the British Museum of
Mankind, in London, where it currently resides. This is a one piece clear
quartz skulls, a bit cloudy and appears to be an attempt to duplicate the
Mitchell-Hedges Skull as its features are very similar. It is currently
on display in the Museum of Man.

PARIS CRYSTAL SKULL - Similarly came into the possession of a Soldier of
Fortune traveling in Mexico in the late 1890's, and eventually made its
way to the Trocadero Museum in Paris. This is a single piece cloudy
clear quartz skull which has a hole that was cut by a Christian Group
from top to bottom. It has the most primitive features of all the
ancient skulls and seems to have a definite Aztec cut to its shape.

MAYAN CRYSTAL SKULL - Discovered in Guatemala in 1912, this skull came
under the protection of a Mayan Brotherhood in Mexico. The skull was
brought to the U.S. by Mr. Nocerino in 1979 for research but its current
whereabouts are unknown. This is a one piece cloudy clear quartz skull
that has circular indentations in its temples.

AMETHYST CRYSTAL SKULL - The same Mayan Brotherhood as connected with
the Mayan Crystal Skull, came into possession of this skull. It was
brought to the U.S. in 1982 and we believe it is residing in the San Jose
area of California, in the hands of the ex-owner of an Art Gallery. This
skull is a one piece quartz skull made from Amethyst. It has the same
circular indentations in the temple as the Mayan Crystal Skull.

TEMPLAR CRYSTAL SKULL - Seen by co-author Mr. Nocerino in France during the
Second World War. This skull is guarded by a secret society in France
known as The Blood of Christ. The skull is a one piece clear quartz
skull and Mr. Nocerino saids its features and size were close to the
Mayan Crystal Skull.

SAN JOSE (MEXICO) SKULL - A one piece amethyst crystal skull discovered in
a tomb in Mexico in the 9th or 10th century. Mr. Nocerino met a Mayan
Priest who has this skull in Mexico.

ROSE QUARTZ CRYSTAL SKULL - A two piece skull (separate jaw) made from
rose quartz similar in shape and size to the Mitchell-Hedges Crystal
Skull. Co-author Nocerino, saw this skull in 1949 near the Guatamala and
Honduras borders. He stated that a tribe of Indians guard the skull now.

TEXAS CRYSTAL SKULL - This skull was said to be discovered in Mexico. It is
a single clear quartz skull, very large (about 18 lbs as compared to 11 lbs
for the Mitchell-Hedges) and one half of the skull is very clear and the
other side very cloudy. It came into the possesion of a Tibetan trained
healer who would use the skull in their religious ceremonies and healing
sessions. Upon his death, it was given to Carl and Joanne Parks of Houston,
Texas who have shared this skull with many people.

ET - THE SMOKY QUARTZ SKULL - Discovered in 1912 by a Mayan Family in
Belize. This is a one piece smoky quartz skull which teeth have an
overbite and the skull comes to a point. This skull is almost the same
size as the Mitchell-Hedges Skull. It is currently held in private

PERU --- Rumors of Crystal Skulls abound in Peru. We have been told by
Mr. Nocerino and Frank Dorland (who researched the Mitchell-Hedges Skull
in 1964-1970) that they have heard that the Government of Peru may have
in their possession a clear quartz skull with a moveable jaw. This
report has not been confirmed yet. During one of the tours my wife
offers to Peru, one of her guides said he saw a beautifully crafted
clear quartz skull held by the Indians in the North Part of Peru. He
said there is a blue color that appears on the top of the head and
in the eyes. We have also heard that small crystal skulls have
appeared in a museum in Lima.

LAS VEGAS -- I met a man who was born in Mexico (he is now deceased) that
when he was 17, on a field trip with his class, he discovered two Crystal
Skulls (smaller than human size, one clear and the other Amethyst) in a
Mayan City in 1942. His teacher allowed him to keep the clear quartz
skull, which I saw in 1989. This skull could fit into a box of index
cards and was clear in the front and cloudy in the back. I felt a strong
energy with this skull. It is the only one I have seen which had
Mayan Symbols carved into it.

IN SUMMARY: According to my co-author Mr. Nocerino, he has personally
seen other human size skulls but the owners have specifically asked him
not to share any information. We believe at the moment, there are about
15-20 Human Size ancient crystal skulls known. It seems now that more
and more are coming out each year.

Most contemporary scientists and archaeologists believe that modern
civilization and technology represent the most advanced systems our Earth
has ever seen. Yet throughout recorded history there have been many
baffling discoveries of artifacts, monuments and unusual patterns or
designs left by the ancients. We have called some of them Ancient Wonders
of the World. But our modern, scientific perspective has not allowed us to
completely comprehend the purpose of many of these ancient discoveries.

Think of the pyramids or Stonehenge. Or the unusual discovery of figure
drawings etched into the earth and distinguishable only from the air in The
Americas (the Nazca Lines) and England (the Cerne Giant). These esoteric
remnants of our forebearers challenge the belief in our own unsurpassed
advancement. And we believe the Crystal Skulls, the subject of this book,
offer an even vaster challenge to any kind of linear theory of progress.

But what exactly are the 'Crystal Skulls'? It is commonly agreed that a
Crystal Skull is a human-shaped skull made out of various types of quartz
crystal. The Crystal Skulls we will focus on in this book are the ancient
ones which are about the size of our own human skull and found among ancient
ruins. However, there have been numerous tiny skulls found in the same or
similar locations, ranging in size from a large marble to a softball. These
smaller skulls do not possess the energy, the power or the air of mystique
of the larger ones.

There seems to be a specific reason why quartz crystal was chosen as the
material to use for the skulls. Indeed, it is not an easy substance to
carve or mold into a shape. If a carver is not careful, an improper cut can
shatter the crystal. Quartz was probably chosen in recognition of some of
its other powerful physical properties that, in turn, help to catalyze self-

For those of you unfamiliar with quartz crystal, we have offered a short
essay in the Appendix to give a more complete definition. If this is your
first introduction to Crystal Skulls or crystals, it might be a good idea to
begin your reading there. For now, we will leave you with a few challenging
thoughts about the possibilities crystals hold for mankind.

One of the predominant uses of quartz crystals today is in modern electronic
devices and machines. In fact, in addition to the computer industry, major
advances in the video, film and audio industries utilize the amplification
and steady resonant abilities of quartz. Similarly, quartz can work with
the human body's system of energy to amplify one's healing abilities or
expand psychic awareness. This subtle energy is shown to exist through
Kirlian photography, which records the electromagnetic energy emanating
from living things. Orientals developed efficient healing systems hundreds
of years ago, known as acupuncture and acupressure, in which they charted a
system of energy meridian lines that run throughout the body. In addition,
there are reports that even some of the so-called primitive tribes in
Africa and Australia use crystals today in similar ways for healing and
diagnosing illness. Even so, there is still great controversy surrounding
the beneficial effects of quartz crystal on the human body, since most
scientists and physicians are at odds with holistic, spiritually oriented

Today numerous books are being written about crystals and their ability to
be programmed by the human mind. This programming can include a whole
spectrum of affirmations, such as improving life situations, increasing
prosperity, clarity of mind, world peace and harmony.

Lastly, quartz crystal has the ability to not only record thoughts and
energy, but also visual impressions, as you will see in some of the
pictures of the Crystal Skulls included in this book. The skulls work like
a video camera, and through several activation processes they are able to
play back these images.

Thus far, of the ancient skulls publicly known, there are three types of
quartz which comprise their physical form. First and most common is clear
quartz crystal. A few of the Crystal Skulls are made of amethyst (a purple-
colored quartz), and one is formed from rose quartz (a pink-colored quartz).
To date, all of the Crystal Skulls have been discovered among ancient ruins
in Mexico, Central or South America. The symbol of skulls must have made a
significant impact upon these cultures because the indigenous peoples
continue to carve replicas and miniatures of the ancient skulls in various

As you begin to delve into the material of this book, you will see from our
Photogallery how different the contemporary carved crystal skulls are from
the ancient ones. Yet this does not even begin to depict the differences
which emerge when we turn to the strange and unexplainable phenomena which
have occurred around several of the ancient Crystal Skulls.

Many people believe there is only one Crystal Skull, the world-famous
Mitchell-Hedges Skull. The media has published photographs of it on
numerous occasions. It is the main focus of two previous books which are
exclusively devoted to the Crystal Skulls.(1) And it is the skull most
widely exhibited throughout the world.

It is the only known Crystal Skull which is not owned by a museum or private
collector. The owners (at first, famed explorer, F. A. Mitchell-Hedges, and
now subsequently his adopted daughter, Anna) have allowed the skull to be
scientifically researched, as well as seen by the public. Individuals have
been able to make an appointment with Anna Mitchell-Hedges to see the skull
in her home.

The other cause of its fame, we believe, lies in the fact that it is a very
skillful replication of a human skull. It even has a detachable jaw.
Although there are fine points of discussion about this fact within the
growing Crystal Skulls research community, the Mitchell-Hedges Skull is an
incredible work of art that no modern carvers have been able to duplicate.(2)

There are several other Crystal Skulls, which we will briefly mention. Much
more detailed information is given about each skull in Chapter One. The two
other skulls that are available to the public are called Aztec skulls
(although archaeologists do not know for sure that the skulls are Aztec
creations), and they reside in the British Museum of Man in London, England,
and in the Trocadero Museum in Paris, France. They are both clear skulls,
but do not have the crystal clarity of the Mitchell-Hedges Skull, nor the
compatibility of size and shape with the human skull.

Two other Crystal Skulls which have come to the attention of the authors and
contributing writers of this book are the Amethyst Skull and the Mayan Skull
(another clear skull). The Mayan Skull was given this name based on F.R.
'Nick' Nocerino's four months of extensive research in 1979/1980. These two
skulls were brought to the United States from Mexico. Again, they are not
as clear or exact as the Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull. The reader will
find photographs of most of the skulls in the Photogallery.

A few of the other skulls which will be discussed were encountered by Mr.
Nocerino in his extensive travels. During the Second World War, he had a
brief opportunity to see another clear skull in France which was in the
possession of a secret society. They called the skull, The Blood of
Christ. Also several years after the war, he saw another skull near the
Guatemala/Honduras border made out of rose quartz with a movable jaw. It
was as perfect as the Mitchell-Hedges Skull (though slightly larger) and
well-guarded by the local Mayan natives. Nick will discuss another amethyst skull
found near San Jose, Mexico, which is smaller than the previous one
mentioned. In addition to these, there are rumors of another three or four
Crystal Skulls which are known, but we do not have satisfactory information
to report on them at this time.

It is our goal in this book to make available new information about the
Crystal Skulls. At this time, even though there have been a number of
articles in various publications about them, the information given is by
no means extensive. We believe this is because our scientists and
archaeologists are not sure what to say about them. The origins of the
ancient Crystal Skulls and the processes which may have created them have
only been guessed at. Of course there are many theories, many of which we
will be sharing in this book, but no one is quite sure which one is correct.

One of the labels that has been showered upon any Crystal Skull, but
primarily upon the most well-known one, the Mitchell-Hedges, is The Skull
of Doom. Through our research and findings we do not concur with this
notion. We feel that the main problem is due to a misunderstanding of the
Crystal Skulls because they do not conform to standard scientific theories.

It so often seems that whatever mankind doesn't understand is regarded as an
evil omen or object. If, however, one stays open to psychic possibilities
and parapsychological investigation, the result is many more possible
answers. We feel that fear of the Crystal Skulls comes from an unwilling-
ness to utilize intuitive measures of investigation. And it is exactly this
fear which feeds such notoriety as the Skulls of Doom. We believe that
the Crystal Skulls originally had a beneficial or constructive purpose for
the civilizations which created and used them. After hundreds or thousands
of years, the true purpose of the skulls was lost and they began to be used
for power over the masses.

For the co-authors and contributors of this book, the Crystal Skulls are a
sign of life. They are one of the many tangible symbols which demonstrate
that the prophecies of a Golden Age are manifesting in our world. As we
begin to unravel the secrets and knowledge locked within these vessels of
crystal, we feel that once again the true understanding of the Crystal
Skulls can be shared. They will be viewed as one of the ancients' most
powerful tools which can help us remove the great unrest in our world today.

When we speak of using psychic techniques to gain insights into the Crystal
Skulls, we must ask the reader's indulgence. As stated earlier, besides
being unable to exactly duplicate some of the more finely modeled skulls
with even our modern technology, we are also unable to date the skulls
because the current form of time-dating using Carbon-14 testing does not
work with strictly inorganic material. Thus the only way to estimate the
age of the Crystal Skulls, or the possible civilizations which might have
created or worked with them, is by using psychometry. This is a process
where a psychically sensitized individual reads psychic energies or
vibrations which are associated with an object. Some of these sensitives
would need to physically touch the Crystal Skulls or be in their presence,
whereas others feel that they have a mind-link with the skulls. Of course,
information gathered in this way is not always able to be traced or
empirically verified, but it does introduce new directions and theories to

A good example of being open to a parapsychological approach is discussed in
Richard Garvin's book on the Crystal Skulls. Frank Dorland was one of the
chief researchers quoted quite extensively in Garvin's book. Mr. Dorland
tried every conceivable way to stay away from a psychically oriented study,
but there were too many inexplicable phenomena for him to just be scientific
in a traditional or conventional way.

In October of 1970, Frank Dorland brought the Mitchell-Hedges Skull to
Hewlett-Packard in Santa Clara, California, for extensive scientific
analysis. Hewlett-Packard has one of the most sophisticated laboratories
for crystal research. Again, summarizing the findings given in Garvin's
book, their researchers claimed that it would be virtually impossible to
duplicate this Crystal Skull. Through their tests, the skull was shown to
have an elaborate inner mechanism of prisms and lenses that would refract
and reflect light projected upon the Crystal Skull in specific ways. This
system of lenses displays a technical competence that has only been achieved
recently (please note that this skull was found in 1924, when no computers
or lasers existed). After shining polarized light upon the skull while it
was bathed in a benzyl alcohol solution, they discovered that whoever carved
or made the skull had totally disregarded the natural axis of the crystal
itself (the crystal should have shattered).

Another highly puzzling detail was that no matter what temperature the
researchers subjected the Mitchell-Hedges Skull to, it always remained
seventy degrees Fahrenheit. All of these findings were so astounding that
one of the crystalographers at Hewlett-Packard was quoted as saying, The
damn thing simply shouldn't even be.

Another phenomenon connected with the Crystal Skulls is their ability to
project holographic images within the skull itself. These images can be
seen by many with their physical eyes. The process of looking for images in
crystal is called scrying. In the many lectures which the co-authors have
given about the Crystal Skulls, most participants have reported seeing
images in the slides of the skulls that were projected. Again, in Garvin's
book, Frank Dorland talked about images he saw (For more information, see
Appendix B.) and how the skull would visibly change in color and shape.
This again is clearly exhibited in photographs and slides recorded by the
vigorous research done by co-author F. R. 'Nick' Nocerino and his team of
assistants, during three weeks of intensive study with the Mitchell-Hedges
Skull at Miss Mitchell-Hedges' home in Canada (which included Sandra Bowen),
as well as Nick's four months of research with the Mayan Skull.

We have heard accounts of healings received by people who have come to see
the Mitchell-Hedges Skull, and they have written to Anna Mitchell-Hedges
about their experiences. Another of the contributors to our book, Steve
Mehler, had the Amethyst and Mayan Skulls in his home for a few days. He
invited many people to visit at that time. Most people who were with the
Crystal Skulls reported either some type of healing or an increase in their
psychic abilities. As a matter of fact, we have not met anyone who has not
experienced some effect when they came into contact with an ancient Crystal

Our friend and contributor of some of the photos of the British Skull, Lois
Julien, told us an interesting story she heard while visiting the British
Museum of Man. One of the guards informed her that the cleaning custodians
had reported seeing the skull move around in its case all by itself at night,
and that they had heard strange sounds coming from the skull as well. So
the question arises: What exactly are we dealing with in these Crystal

In order to answer this question, we have no choice but to look at the
spiritual or psychic aspects of the Crystal Skulls! If the reader wishes to
appreciate this book, we must ask for openness to this area of study. We
feel it is impossible to even begin to understand what a Crystal Skull is
without considering the metaphysical aspects. Today we are finding that
science and religion (or spiritual concepts) are beginning to merge together
to become one field. Also, all over the world people are awakening or are
becoming interested in the spiritual aspect of their being, sensing that it
is as real as anything else, even though their spirit may exist in some
other dimension which the physical senses do not detect. It has long been
prophesied that in the latter part of the Twentieth Century, mankind would
have more of an interest in the spiritual or metaphysical.

Thus, you will find in this book not only the personal experiences of
several Crystal Skull researchers who have been in the presence of one or
more of the ancient skulls, but also information from what are today being
called Channels. You will find a description of channeling, by Jon Klimo
in Part III, Introduction to Channeling. Essentially, by channeling we are
referring to individuals who are able to act as communicators for various
spirit entities to speak through and share their perspectives of reality.
Since they exist in spirit, they can (although not always) see many things
beyond what we are able to from our perspectives, because on their levels
time and space do not exist. In this book, we have included information
from trance and conscious channels for extraterrestrials and dolphins, and
mind impressions from the Crystal Skulls. We feel it is important to
explore all avenues of information, merging them together to give us a
better picture of what we are presenting in this book.

As far as channeling goes, it is of course one of the more controversial
subjects at the time of the publication of this book. Through the work of
actress Shirley MacLaine, her books, seminars, TV mini-series (January, 1987)
and media appearances, channeling has been placed into the public eye. It
is a source of great hope and great skepticism among the general American
population. It all depends on where you are and who you talk to.

From the late 1890's through the early 1980's channeling was called
mediumship. The United States has been influenced by many religious
movements and individuals who used or were great proponents of trance-like
states that yielded valuable information from beyond the world which is
plainly visible. The prophetic work of the American, Edgar Cayce, who lived
in the early part of this century, has quietly influenced thousands of
people. Many Americans have also been interested in the philosophies of the
nineteenth century Swedish religious thinker, Swedenborg. So, these ideas
and methods of reaching other levels of healing consciousness are not new to
Americans, although the name has been updated and the media has chosen to
spotlight it as a current fad.

In no way do we feel that this is a definitive book on the Crystal Skulls.
The scope of our material is based primarily on spiritual or psychic sources.
This information comes either from psychic impressions of those who have
been in the presence of a Crystal Skull or from channeled information. We
cannot conclusively prove many of the statements made in this book. Also, there
is far more scientific and psychic research which needs to be done on the
Crystal Skulls whose whereabouts are known, as well as the Crystal Skulls
that will emerge into public view in the near future.

But the metaphysical research discussed here does offer some possible
avenues for solving the great mysteries of these Crystal Skulls. We do know,
and it has been documented by reliable and trustworthy individuals, that the
skulls project holographic images, sounds, colors, aromas and change shape.
In addition to our own findings, there are just too many other people
reporting similar experiences to us, based on being in the presence of a
Crystal Skull (or even working with a photograph), for us to write these
phenomena off as hallucinations.

Some contemporary scientists are unsure about how these objects came to be,
and in some cases they deny that the Crystal Skulls exist, or claim that the
skulls are frauds. But, there are too many unusual properties which the
Crystal Skulls possess, and too many unanswered questions which shouldn't be

Progress for modern science is too often measured in the physical world. Our
entire world culture has become dependent on outward systems interlocking
science and technology with transportation, communication and a multitude of
questionably useful gadgets. But the systems of ancient cultures may have
depended on something quite different. In those times, men and women were
closer, more dependent on nature. And it makes sense that their most
powerful systems and tools took advantage and explored the inner worlds of
nature and the psyche.

Since about 1986, the interest in Crystal Skulls has been growing
exponentially. None of the authors has been involved with a subject or a
book that has received so much interest from so many people, and which has
influenced people enough to volunteer their assistance in every aspect of
this book. Whenever we were seeking a particular resource to fill a need in
this project, it would miraculously appear within a short time.

We will be writing other books about people's experiences with Crystal
Skulls. We feel that these books will not only open many new doors to
understanding the mystery of the Crystal Skulls but also may lead us to our
origin. We believe that all of us are integrally connected to each other
and to the universe, and the Crystal Skulls are one of the keys which will
unlock the answers to these long sought-after questions.

We invite you to partake of this work. In this book we have purposely
interviewed many different sources to give you various perspectives on the
Crystal Skulls. Even as this book goes to press, there is much more we have
yet to tell you. So, dear reader, jump in and enjoy!!

Footnotes from Introduction

1 - Richard Garvin's book, The Crystal Skull (published in 1973), and The
Skull Speaks by the Anna Mitchell-Hedges Research & Exploration
Association (AMHREA, (c) By Brian Hadley James, published in 1985)

2 - Crystal Skull researcher, Steve Mehler [ See Chapter 4 ], believes
the bulges in the temple of the Mitchell-Hedges Skull are very different
from the more flattened tendency of modern human skulls. He agrees this
could be due to the anatomical changes in humans over time.



I was born into a family with a rich background in psychic phenomena and
healing which nurtured spiritual/psychic gifts in me. In my early childhood
I was exposed to the healing practices and Wicca teachings by very wise,
older Italian women in Brooklyn, New York. Wicca is the active remnant of
ancient pagan tradition. Two women in particular introduced me to crystals
and forecast many events in my life which have come true. At the age of
seven, I was given my first frozen water stones [rock quartz crystals].
At nine, I began having dreams and mirror visions of Crystal Skulls. These
were times of confusion to me because open, voluntary information about the
skulls was not easily available. Yet my time spent with these Wiccan
teachers reassured me and helped to guide me toward my destiny. Needless to
say, I spent a good deal of time with my own thoughts. And I learned one of
life's strongest lessons: without desire fueling us, we do not accomplish
whatever it is we seek to do.

It was during World War II that I had my first direct contact with three
Crystal Skulls, one in England and two in France. It would seem that seeing
that these would have somehow enticed me to keep records and document my
experiences, but at the time, it was more important to survive the war. When
I married in 1947, my life soon took a different course, but I certainly did
not end my search to understand what I was trying to accomplish on this
earth plane.

To date, I am the only person to have worked with and handled nine human-
sized ancient Crystal Skulls, along with several hundred smaller ones that
are of known ancient origin. A lifetime of extensive travel, study and
research has led me on a quest to uncover and tap the knowledge stored
within these incredible artifacts. To see the key, we must see the true
lock for it. It is not obvious, for its own protection. Where it was
before was a power unto itself and could move through all dimensions.
This quote can be attributed to all the Crystal Skulls which I have seen,
worked with and researched.



Shortly after becoming involved with the Crystal Skulls, I had the following
experience during a guided regression:

We were told to return to the lifetime previous to this one. I saw myself
on the Planet Uranus. I recognized many friends from my current lifetime,
as well as Light Beings who were there. We were all working around what
appeared to be a gigantic pool table. There was a huge computer panel at
one end. We were working at a fast pace programming the Crystal Skulls and
I was aware of these Light Beings supervising us. There was joy in doing
this work; I was content. Two of the beings came to me and telepathically
said that I must return to the Earth. I protested. The reply was, You are
needed there to teach.

I was very rapidly placed in a tunnel; they handed me a crystal and said,
When you meet those with crystals, you will understand. I then saw myself
being born, and I looked at the clock (which was a suggestion made to me
while in the regression). It said 4:43 PM instead of 4:45 PM which is on my

I was born on February 4, 1943, and it wasn't until 1978 that I knew what a
crystal was. My first astrology teacher began to teach classes on crystals.
We would use them for meditation, dreams, and other consciousness exercises.
Two years later, she and I attended a crystal symposium in Palo Alto,
California. And there I had my first connection with the Crystal Skulls in
this lifetime. F. R. 'Nick' Nocerino was showing slides of the Mayan Skull
which he had personally researched. Something stirred within me and I
wanted to know more. My path became clear. I decided to become Nick's
student and began receiving messages about the Crystal Skulls from my Space
Being friends on Uranus. I am very grateful for the continuing guidance
they offer me, and to Nick for the patience he has shown while answering all
of my questions.

And yes, I finally did have an opportunity to be with a Crystal Skull on the
Earth-plane. This occurred in October and November of 1985, when Nick set
up a trip to Kitchener, Ontario, Canada, for a research team of four people
to be with the Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull. Besides myself and Nick, Ron
Dickinson (a member of the IBM Think Tank) and DaEl Walker (author of The
Crystal Book) were the other members. We spent three blissful weeks with
this wonderful Crystal Skull. I felt that I received a profound healing
from the skull which has made me a much stronger person. We are very
grateful to Anna Mitchell-Hedges for her hospitality.

In 1986 and 1987, I began to lecture with Joshua Shapiro (and Nick
sometimes) about the Crystal Skulls, thus beginning to fulfill my promise to
my Space Being friends. It is a wonderful feeling to see this book become a
reality. I hope it opens up memory banks for the reader and helps you to
find your path in this sometimes difficult Earth life.



Until 1983 I had very little interest in crystals and no real knowledge of
their many spiritual uses. But that year an April visit to a bookstore in
San Jose, California, changed all that. My friend Ruth and I went to the
Ram Metaphysical Bookstore to deliver an order of my first published book,
Journeys of an Aquarian Age Networker. While there, Francoise, the store
owner, unexpectedly pulled out some pictures of an Amethyst Skull. The
skull had been brought from Mexico to San Jose, California, sometime in
December of 1982. Francoise said the agent for this Crystal Skull placed it
in the hands of a local art dealer in order to sell it.

I immediately sensed something important was happening, as though it were a
privilege to see these photographs. I was tickled when Francoise gave me a
copy of one of the photos.

showing of the skull at the art gallery in San Jose where the skull was
being kept. Steve was trying to help sell the skull for the owner [See
interview with Steve Mehler in Chapter 4]. He had been contacted by the
agent for the Amethyst Skull. This agent had met Steve previously when
the Mayan Skull was brought to the Rosicrucian Museum where Steve worked as
a researcher. Steve had an opportunity to work with this skull.

Steve invited Ruth and me to attend this showing. I immediately sensed that
the skull would have a profound effect upon my life. Thereafter, I became
quite interested in crystals and met many crystal teachers. I shared the
picture Francoise had given me at any impromptu lectures on networking I
gave at that time.

informal UFO lecture I was giving in Oakland, California in April of 1985.
During the lecture we recognized each other (on a soul level), and she told
me I had worked with her in a past life in Tibet with thirteen Crystal
Skulls. Prior to her sharing this information, I had not mentioned my
experience with the Amethyst Skull, so I knew this was a special connection.
Within three days, I moved into her home!

Through Sandra I met her teacher, F. R. 'Nick' Nocerino, who had personally
seen nine human-sized Crystal Skulls in his travels. Through contact with
Nick, I was able to go to two crystal conferences (in Dallas, May of 1986;
and San Francisco, June of 1986) and personally be with the Mitchell-Hedges

In December of 1985, Sandra and I decided to begin a series of lectures on
the UFO/Crystal Skull Connection. We lectured throughout Northern and
Southern California, as well as giving a lecture at the Rocky Mountain UFO
Conference, sponsored by Dr. Leo Sprinkle (in Laramie, Wyoming in July of
1986). We shared slides (provided by Nick) and videos we had collected
along the way. Concurrently, Nick continued to lecture about the Crystal

In the Summer and Fall of 1986, Sandra and I began to collect information
for an expanded version of our UFO book, UFOs, Space Brothers and the
Aquarian Age. Our initial plan was to include a chapter about how the
Crystal Skulls are connected to UFOs. We collected so much information,
that we discussed with Nick the idea of working with him to do a separate
book about the Crystal Skulls. In February of 1987, the first version of
our book, Mysteries of the Crystal Skulls Revealed, was printed.

be involved with a research team to continue studying them and their
interaction with human energy. I also hope to be able to create a video
that will show the various holographic images which appear in the Crystal
Skulls, as well as continue to make books available about the Crystal Skulls
and how these ancient tools can be used to create harmony and peace in our


during my important visit to Francoise's Ram Metaphysical Bookstore. It was
as if a shock hit my entire system. It was not that the skull was
uncomfortable to look at-- it touched me inwardly, very deeply. I thought
perhaps this was a remembrance of working with this skull before, or having
contact with it. I also remember hearing myself say, This skull shouldn't
be out yet! I cannot say why I thought that. All I can relate is that
something happened to me, something changed inside me after seeing the
pictures. It was as if this had been set-up long ago with the idea that
when I was ready, the part familiar with the Crystal Skulls would awaken.
But inwardly I kept asking, Why me?

The thought occurred to me, as I looked at the Amethyst Skull, that it
somehow represented one of the many outer signs that the transformation into
the Aquarian Age (or the Golden Age) is really happening now! Even though I
was just looking at a picture of the Crystal Skull, I felt that it was as
powerful as the real skull itself. Francoise told us that they had another
batch of pictures they took, but somehow these mysteriously disappeared and
the photo developing company could not find their negatives. This is just
one of many strange stories that surrounded the Amethyst Skull, as if there
is some sort of protective energy field around it, and only those who are
supposed to see or experience it do so.

dark purple. Steve Mehler told me that this skull had been taken to the
Hewlett-Packard research laboratories, and they were not sure how the skull
could have been created, even if the skull's creator(s) had possessed an
advanced technology similar to our own. The crystal itself has a marbled
effect with patches of different shades of purple here and there. There are
a number of thin light-purple wavy lines (called sutures) which go across
the top part of the skull and down the front of the face.

Steve also had the Crystal Skull in his home for five days; he invited many
well-known crystal researchers, as well as psychics and healers, to see the
skull and ex-perience it. Steve still has tape recordings of all of these

I gathered some of the impressions received about the Amethyst Crystal Skull
from local residents [San Jose] who were psychically sensitive and had been
in the presence of it. Many spoke of great wisdom stored within it, as well
as memories of events in history which have occurred in the presence of the
Amethyst Skull. Many intuitively felt or received visions that such Crystal
Skulls were used during the time of Atlantis, the Mayans or perhaps even
earlier. My friend Ruth psychically saw that in Atlantis they would place
jewels in the eye sockets (probably other crystals) to activate the skull.
It then would light up and either communicate telepathically or actually
speak in words with the head priest. The priest (or whoever was permitted
to work with the skull in this way) could obtain universal knowledge and
wisdom directly from the skull. She also saw that the Crystal Skull had
some kind of a metal helmet that it wore.

potential buyer at an art gallery in San Jose. The Amethyst Skull was kept
in a vault at the gallery and the owner brought out the skull wrapped in a
cloth. About ten people sat around a table with the skull. Most of the
time I was very quiet, just sitting there and trying to experience the
energy or vibration of it.

As I tapped into the energy of the skull, I felt a living being, a vibrant
consciousness that was sleeping, yet awake enough to know we were there.
Many of us felt a loving vibration and great power. I did have a chance to
actually touch the skull and I felt a stream of energy move from the skull
to my right hand, up through my arm and stop at the top of my shoulder.
Somehow I feel that a permanent bond was made at this time. Today, whenever
I think of the Amethyst Skull, I immediately inwardly see it sitting over my
right shoulder, suspended in space. A few times, I have felt as if this
skull has been placed over my head as if my brain is being programmed with
the knowledge from this skull. So one does not always have to be in the
physical presence of a Crystal Skull to work with one. To this day, I sense
it is one of the main forces that guides and protects me on my
spiritual/networking journeys.

One result of seeing the Amethyst Skull was that I began drawing many people
into my life who were involved with crystals. I feel that the Amethyst
Skull was my trigger to get in touch with my past lifetimes when I worked
with crystals. Numerous people have told me that they remember me from
Atlantis, which was one of the civilizations most active in the use of
crystals. Also, if someone had told me back in 1983 that I would be
involved with a book about the Crystal Skulls, I would have laughed. As I
look back over the years, the signs were clear that this was part of the
work I came here to do.

now, I see them as physical, natural tools which can connect us to the
spiritual realms and the spiritual beings who are assisting our movement
into the fast-approaching Golden Age. They can be activated at any moment
by the appropriate vibration, giving us wisdom and knowledge of the ancients.



Michael Kant
Chapter 5

* What is the origin of the Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull?

This famous Crystal Skull was originally in one of the thirteen healing
temples of Atlantis. The Crystal Skull is that of the female priestess
'Shee-thee-tra,' [Editors' note: Sandra received 'Sha-tree-tra', with the
r rolled, when she was at Mt. Shasta for the Gathering of Light held by
ASSK, August, 1986.] who was killed during one of the last earthquakes on
Atlantis. It was transformed into crystal through the crystal art form of
Morphocrystallic Transformation.

* What are the 'Key Years for Planetary Changes' and timing of 'Key
Planetary Events'?

Planetary changes and events don't have a cosmic clock for their beginning
or end and depend on the change in consciousness of the Planetary Evolution
and Intelligence as they ascend Jacob's Ladder of Light.(2) The sense of
time one experiences in daily life is actually based on the flow of sodium
ions in the Biocrystalline Body of Light.

* Will Key Light-Workers be brought together in a stronger Network of
Light than presently is the case?

Key Light-Workers are even now being brought together and in the near future
will form Communities of Light at Key locations along the Twelve Crystalline
Fields of Light that surround the Earth. Under the direction of the
Jerusalem Command this will take place at areas where Pyramids of Light,
Etheric Temples and Light Ships land.

* What exactly are the Crystal Skulls and your experience with them?

The Crystal Skulls are Thirteen Crystal Skulls produced originally by the
Morphocrystallic Generation of Crystals and originally placed in the
Thirteen Healing Temples on Atlantis but are now located beneath the Potala
in Lhasa, Tibet.

* How will the Thirteen Crystal Skulls assist Planetary and Evolutionary

The Thirteen Crystal Skulls now assembled beneath the Potala in Lhasa, Tibet
are a Living Computer for Planetary Healing that work closely together with
the Frequency Station Tribal Light that is also located there and the
Twelve Crystalline Fields of Light that surround the Earth.

* What type of Encoding does the Crystal Skull contain?

The Crystal Skulls are Encoded with Feminine Energies, Specific Light
Functions, Keys of Enoch, and the Wisdom of certain members of the Higher
Evolution. When activated by the Higher Evolution, the jaw of the Crystal
Skull can move and speak.

* What is the Connection between Light Ships and the Crystal Skulls?

Crystal Skulls and other examples of Crystal and Light Technologies were
brought to the Earth by various Galactic Races, such as that of the
Pleiadians during the time of Atlantis. The Mitchell-Hedges Skull was
first brought to the Atlantean Healing Temple of Muror located in the area
of Bimini. This was the great Temple of Healing in which Benu or the
Phoenix played a central role in healing.

* How many human-sized Crystal Skulls are there?

There are Thirteen Main Crystal Skulls with a wide variety of other models
scattered around the Earth. The Thirteen Crystal Skulls are symbolic of the
Thirteen Atlantean Healing Temples, the Thirteen Inner Earth Tribes, the 52
year Sacred Calendar of the Mayans, etc...

Earth to the dimensions of Light in the constellation of Orion.

Chapter 7

Joshua: We would like to explore information the dolphins have related to
what mankind is calling the Crystal Skulls. Do you understand this term?

Dolphins: Indeed. Yes, again, speaking of probabilities in the past,
you're going to hear many different interpretations of these. And in truth
there are many different skulls and vibrational levels. Many of these
skulls are not of your vibrational level or dimension. But over the
centuries, over thousands of years, they have slowly lost their vibrational
energy, and that has lowered their frequency so that they have come into
manifestation into your physical world. They were in parallel dimensions to
your world and have now come into your frequency. There are many that you
have not yet discovered, but will be discovering. Not only Crystal Skulls,
my friends, but crystal artifacts of many kinds. Let us speak a little of
crystal in general before we speak of the skulls in particular.

Understand, it is no accident that you have such an interest in crystal at
this time. You have used crystal in Atlantis, Lemuria and other similar
civilizations that you lump all together, thinking of them as being Atlantis.
Let's look at Atlantis especially. It was a civilization of great
technological achievement, much more so than you have in Earth at this time.
And there was a great use of crystal. But it was also a civilization very
similar to your civilization of this time in that the powers that you had,
your technologies, your use of crystal was for personal gain and
aggrandizement, for competition, for getting one over your neighbor, brother
or sister. In other words, an intense feeling again of individuality, of
isolation and of lack. You used crystal in this way, and ultimately the
civilization was destroyed because of the energy of the motivation for its
use (obviously not the crystal itself, for crystal is an objective
amplifier). Crystal does not destroy in and of itself, it simply amplifies
thought, positive or negative.


(continues about the Crystal Skulls)

Now, more specifically, the Crystal Skulls. Understand that the cranium,
the shape of the head that contains the brain has, of course, its own
physical function and form. When you designed the human body -- and of
course you designed it otherwise you wouldn't be living in it -- you set up
its function very carefully. The shape of its bones, the shape of its
structure. It is far too much to go into every detail of every aspect of the
physical body, but you believe that you live within your head. You believe
that your subconscious and your personality and your ego lives within the
head. It is not true. The brain is, of course, an important aspect of the
body, and it is the seat of consciousness perhaps, the central
communications center, but it is not the be-all and end-all of your being.
Your subconscious mind exists throughout the whole of the body, throughout
the whole of the nervous system. The brain has its memory devices, yes, it
is your repository of information, but it does not exist in isolation from
the rest of the body.

You are aware of the energy centers in the body and their interconnections.
Physically the brain has that function of being the center of control. The
head is designed to protect and house the brain and some of the major
sensory inputs such as sound, sight, taste and smell. You feel that the
head is an extremely important part of your bodies. The shape of the head
therefore has a great significance. What better way to put power into a
crystal than to shape that crystal in the form of the most powerful aspect
of yourselves! It is a little bit of anthropomorphism, that you are seeing
the crystal in the form of the human head. It is not important ultimately
what form you choose to make a crystal. You can have a crystal any shape
you wish, but if you believe it has power, then it has power. Those who
formed crystals into human skulls believed that they were putting much
greater power into the crystal by so doing. And because they believed that,
they did it. So the form of the crystal head has much power within it, much
power of computation in the sense of the brain as being a computer.

Your computers work in the same way that your brains do. It's no accident,
of course. They use similar electromagnetic structures, much more grossly
than the human brain or any other physical brain on Earth, but nonetheless,
a similar kind of structure. And the crystals that were formed into the
human skull were given that kind of structure within them by thought, by
empowering them. There have been crystals formed in many different ways,
some by laser at the time of Atlantis and Lemuria. However, there have been
times in the Mayan civilization, for example, when seemingly one Crystal
Skull, not currently in circulation yet, was formed by a number of temple
maidens (virgins) rubbing the crystal by hand with cloth for several hundred
years, day in and day out to get it into its form. In doing so, imagine the
power that is put into such a thing. You see, it is most important to
recognize that no crystal has power in and of itself. Crystal is an
objective amplifier. It has power only because a human being or some other
entity has put power into it, by storing its thought in that crystal and
programming it. The belief in creating such a device stores the energy
within it.



Our intent in this book has been to present several perspectives on the
mysterious Crystal Skulls. We have gathered information from many sources
in order to present some of the best possible explanations and theories for
the skulls' existence. No longer can we be content to look at them merely
as wonderful ancient art objects. We believe it's time to understand the
purpose and powerful abilities of the ancient Crystal Skulls.

There is a reason why more attention is being given to the Crystal Skulls.
There is a reason why people are becoming so fascinated by them and why so
many civilizations have been involved with human shaped skulls composed of
various materials, including crystal. In some of these civilizations,
Crystal Skulls were worshiped as gods or power tools. Human greed was often
involved. However, we've also provided much evidence within in this book
showing that this is not the true reason that the Crystal Skulls have been
given to mankind.

Truly, the Crystal Skulls are a reflection of the perfection in mankind. We
believe they are ancient computers which have answers within them to many of
our questions, and that they can provide solutions to the world's problems.
When we are mature enough to use these Divine Tools for Perfect Love and in
Perfect Harmony, they will take us into incredible new realities of beauty
and joy. They have been sleeping for thousands of years, waiting for this
time in our history to be reactivated. It is our belief that those
individuals who have worked with the Crystal Skulls in their past lifetimes
are being called now to be with them again.

Recognizing the depth of many sections of this book, we'd like to summarize
some of the theories we have presented:

It is our feeling that Crystal Skulls of a nature as represented by the
Mitchell-Hedges Skull will all be clear, as Michael Kant or F. R. 'Nick'
Nocerino have said. Each skull of this type was brought forth through a
mental process which we do not understand today (i.e.-- through the power of
the mind). This is the reason we cannot duplicate them even with our
sophisticated, advanced technologies. As in the case of the Mitchell-Hedges
Crystal Skull, it may have been the skull of a Atlantean Priestess at one
time, although a few of the channels we have interviewed (not all included in
this book) have implied that skulls such as this may have come from as far
back as Lemuria. In any case, most of the ancient skulls we have explored
within this book (the Mitchell-Hedges Skull, the Mayan Skull or the Amethyst
Skull) are thousands of years old. We cannot be sure of course, since we
have no reliable system with which to date crystal (Carbon-14 dating does
not work with crystal.).

From the research done by F. R. 'Nick' Nocerino on the Mayan Skull and the
Mitchell-Hedges Skull (and psychometry done with slides of the Amethyst,
Paris and British Skulls), we believe that Crystal Skulls record vibrations
in the form of images of the events that have occurred around them. In this
way, they seem to work as video cameras of sorts, recording holographic
scenes. The majority of people who have attended our lectures about the
Crystal Skulls have stated that they were able to see these images while
viewing slides or pictures of the skulls. And not only this, but while
viewing these pictures and slides, the holographic images begin to change
in front of one's eyes. Thus, we further speculate that the energy and
essence of the Crystal Skulls are contained within these images. Through
our experiences and research, we feel that an individual does not necessarily
need to be in the presence of a Crystal Skull to establish a connection with
it, but can do so through pictures as well. This phenomenon also
demonstrates how the skulls can be activated by having a person concentrate
their mind energies on the actual skulls or the pictures. In addition, as
demonstrated by the respective research of Nick Nocerino and Frank Dorland,
any other crystal placed in the presence of a Crystal Skull can be changed
and/or charged, so that it too may show holographic pictures.

We believe there are two likely theories about the origin of Crystal Skulls
such as the Mitchell-Hedges Skull or Rose Quartz Skull, based on our
inability to explain their existence from archaeological and scientific
perspectives. Either their manufacture was by a very advanced technological
civilization on our Earth which understood Cosmic Laws and Universal
Interrelationships beyond our current scope, or an extraterrestrial
civilization was involved in bringing the process of the skull's creation to
our world. Through our interviews, it seems that if the latter occurred,
then it was a combination of receiving actual physical Crystal Skulls and
some type of inner telepathic contact with receptive individuals who were
inspired to create the Crystal Skulls. We feel that both theories are
correct and that the actual answer is likely to be a synthesis of the two.

In connection with the extraterrestrial theories: If we review the channeled
sessions by Michael Kant and Sandra Bowen, both imply that many of the
Crystal Skulls were brought or projected here from other parts of our galaxy.
Michael also stated that some of the Crystal Skulls we are currently
familiar with were created on the Earth, but they were copied from Thirteen
Original Skulls, some of which may still be in Tibet. Others have been
moved to an underground city near Salt Lake City in Utah. He also mentioned
that each of these Thirteen Original Crystal Skulls were clear skulls, and
that each one has a complete crystal body associated with it.

In addition, the further we move into the Age of Aquarius, the more likely
it is that the head will rejoin its crystal body. These complete crystal
bodies have stored within them the history and genetic information of the
Twelve Tribes or Races of the Inner Earth, with the Thirteenth Crystal Skull
representing the union or family of the tribes. This seems to correlate
completely with what Nick discussed in his interview, about his inner vision
of always seeing thirteen clear skulls together with one of them serving as
a master stone (a main Crystal Skull surrounded by, and interacting with
twelve other skulls).

However, looking at the advanced civilization idea, it is felt by the
co-authors and other channels that some of the Crystal Skulls could have an
Atlantean origin. As Michael Kant shared in his interview, he felt the
Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull was in one of the thirteen healing temples of
Atlantis, located in what we now know as Bimini. We feel, based on the
similar physical craftsmanship, especially the movable jaw and the clarity
of the crystal, that also the Rose Quartz Skull and the newly reported
Crystal Skull found in Peru, are of similar origin to the Mitchell-Hedges
Skull. Michael had suggested in prior correspondences that the Amethyst
Skull is from Atlantis. But if that is true, based on the vibration Joshua
Shapiro remembers experiencing in Atlantis and while in the presence of the
Amethyst Skull (in 1983), it was probably a subservient or supportive skull
to the main Thirteen Crystal Skulls.

Another corollary theory to the Atlantis origin: upon the destruction of
the continent of Atlantis, the Mitchell-Hedges Skull sank underwater, where
it was protected for a few thousand years, perhaps by the dolphins. This
close association with the Atlantean demise possibly explains many of the
watery scenes the researchers in Canada observed during scrying sessions.

The idea of the number thirteen comes up in several of our world religions.
In Christianity, there is the Christ surrounded by his twelve apostles. A
similar story is told in the book, He Walked the Americas, by L. Taylor
Hansen. According to Ms. Hansen, there were legends of a man similar to the
biblical Jesus, who traveled among the native peoples in North, Central and
South America, as well as in the Polynesian Islands. Each culture he
visited talked about him as a white man with crosses in his hands, who
taught them exactly the same message as Christ. When he left, he would
choose twelve men from the tribe to continue these teachings. When asked
his name, he let each tribe decide what to call him. For example, the
Cherokee or Dakotah called him Chee-Zoos.

The thirteen tribes of Israel are a second example. Twelve tribes or
families were connected by a thirteenth, priestly tribe, the Kohanim
(Priests). Another example is Michael's reference to the mandala of energy
formed by The Thirteen Crystal Skulls in Tibet. This pattern of twelve
Crystal Skulls represents two Stars of David with a central thirteenth skull
as its focal point. Thirteen is a holy number combination. Perhaps long
ago it was this number of Crystal Skulls that created the significance of
the number thirteen. Current world religions copied it, but they have
forgotten why it was so important.

It is our feeling that maybe there are multiple sets of thirteen Crystal
Skulls which work together all over the world. We intuitively believe in
these theories because of the wide variation of shape in the known ancient
Crystal Skulls. Another possible theory is that each different shape of
Crystal Skull represents a different form of human that existed on this
planet. Steve Mehler disagrees with this idea and feels that the skulls
were only symbolic, with the possible exception of the Mitchell-Hedges
Skull. He agreed that this Crystal Skull could have been the skull of a
living person changed to crystal. Also, there are the beliefs taught by
Harley Swiftdeer of the Deer Tribe, that each major religion of the Earth
has a set of thirteen skulls; twelve clear skulls in a circle surrounding
a central thirteenth skull made of amethyst. So based on our investigations,
we feel that there is at least one set of thirteen skulls, if not more. The
co-authors of this book (and Steve Mehler) all feel that there will be a
time in our future when several skulls, if not all thirteen, will come
together and the energy that will be generated by such a combination will
change the face of our Earth.

Is there a connection between the Crystal Skulls and UFOs? One interesting
thing is that every person who has assisted in this book is also very
interested in the study of UFOs. One of the photographs in Sandra's first
chapter shows what appears to be an image of a spacecraft (or according to
Michael Kant-- a Pleiadian Ship) appearing within the Mitchell-Hedges Skull.
This of itself does not necessarily imply that extraterrestrials brought the
skulls, but it may imply that the Crystal Skulls have recorded images of
Spacecraft or UFO activity in their memory banks. Of course, if there were
an advanced civilization such as Atlantis, then Atlanteans could have used
some form of craft similar to those reported as UFOs today. Maybe even some
of these spacecrafts we are seeing are not extraterrestrial but rather
intraterrestrial, implying as their source either the Inner Earth or
messengers from our past or future.

Another theory we have heard was presented by trance channel Sandra Haberer
of North Carolina. She said that the Crystal Skulls were created from the
melted-down remnants of individual members of an extraterrestrial race which
visited our world between 11,000 - 50,000 years ago. When an alien was
about to die (their lifespan was approximately 950 years), a body was cloned
for the spirit to continue to live in and its original body was changed into
crystal. After these alien beings (in the cloned bodies) returned to their
home world, they could telepathically communicate with the natives through
the Crystals Skulls and continue to spiritually guide them.

No matter which way we go with our conjecture, there needs to be more
research in this area of a possible UFO connection. When the scrying
process is used on other Crystal Skulls (such as the Mayan Skull), we again
find UFOs appearing. If the Crystal Skulls are computers, then like our
modern computers they could send each other information, so that if a person
is looking into one skull, it could access the information from another
skull. Also, what if there are other Crystal Skulls on other worlds or in
other dimensions? Could they also send holographic images from their worlds
to the Crystal Skulls we have here on Earth? We could then view infinite
worlds and dimensions. As one gazes into the eyes of the Mitchell-Hedges
Skull, there is a feeling of drifting into infinity. It is as if whatever
question one may have, an answer could be received through the skull.
Another possibility could be (as described in Sandra Bowen's UFO contact)
that the Space Beings already have Crystal Skulls onboard their craft. For
each skull on the Earth there may be a counterpart skull on a spacecraft.

Changing direction, let us consider a different line of thought. We
mentioned the concept of a powerful consciousness or intelligence which
appears to work through and control the Crystal Skulls. Our personal
experiences with this force lead us to believe that they are beings who
have transcended the physical planes or realities. At certain times, these
beings can communicate through Crystal Skulls because the skulls act as
bridges to link their dimensions to ours. They cannot directly communicate
with us because their vibration is too high. The beings would shatter our
bodies through contact, like glass that shatters when exposed to a given
frequency of sound. However, since crystal seems to be able to transcend
many levels and dimensions, a Crystal Skull would be the perfect vehicle to
handle and step-down the energy of these beings.

Another interesting common denominator among all the Crystal Skulls which we
have studied is their ability to be used for miraculous forms of healing.
For example, the Maya told Anna Mitchell-Hedges and her father that the
Crystal Skull could be used to heal or to will death. Anna told the members
of the 1985 research team that she has received letters from people who have
visited her, stating that they were healed of particular illnesses. Steve
Mehler mentions that many people who came to see the Mayan Skull or Amethyst
Skull in his home received a healing.

Nevertheless, not all of the Crystal Skulls have stored within them such
positive and uplifting energies. Some of the skulls have recorded man's
inhumanity to man to such a degree that it is very difficult for people to
be around them. For example, we have heard reports that the British Skull
in London has scared people so much that they must put it away for periods
of time. When they were scrying the Mayan Skull, the researchers saw many
scenes of violence, such as human sacrifices and wars. On the other hand,
as we have mentioned, these types of scenes did not come out with the
Mitchell-Hedges Skull. So perhaps one of our jobs in the future will be to
take some of these Crystal Skulls that have been misused and cleanse them to
bring them back to their true purpose.

This book is just scratching the surface of information about the Crystal
Skulls. It is the authors' desire that there should be more research and
education about them. We do not wish to repeat the mistakes of the past in
revering the Crystal Skulls as gods or using them for destructive purposes.
We hope that we have presented a more positive message about the Crystal
Skulls and how these Gifts of God can be used as powerful tools to help us
solve contemporary problems which we have created for ourselves. There is
no one who can scientifically prove most of the statements which have been
made in this book, however, we feel that the information contained herein
will give the reader a better foundation to proceed from. We hope more and
more people will have opportunities to work with the Crystal Skulls.

It seems that the Crystal Skulls are beginning to become more activated. As
was stated in the book, The Skull Speaks, the Crystal Skulls are drawing
certain people together as preparation for beginning to work with them. As
they were used in the past to heal our planet and our people, we hope it
shall be once again. To us, the re-emergence of the Crystal Skulls is a
powerful sign of the impending Aquarian Age, which will be a Golden Age.
The closer we get to flowing into the New Age, the more Divine Tools will
emerge to assist us.

As more research is done with the Crystal Skulls and as ancient skulls are
re-discovered, we wonder, will the theories in this book be confirmed? Will
the Crystal Skulls begin to communicate with us and share their great
knowledge? Are they indeed one of the key tools which we will use to bring
peace and harmony to our world? Will our true history and connection to the
Universe be revealed? Will the Crystal Skulls act as communication devices
with the Space Beings, thus allowing us to travel to other worlds?

We thank each of you for your interest and if you have information or
experiences connected with the Crystal Skulls which you would like to share,
please feel free to contact us. It has been our joy and pleasure to share
this book with you. We hope we have bridged the gap between our sciences
and the psychic or metaphysical realms, towards understanding these so-
called mysterious Crystal Skulls, which perhaps for the reader at this point,
may no longer be a total mystery.

Mysteries of the Crystal Skulls Revealed is currently out of print, that
is the publisher no longer exists and bookstores can not order the book
directly from the publisher. However, you can order the book through any
of the co-authors, who's address were given in the previous section.
Also, we believe one of our old distributors -- New Leaf Distributors in
Atlanta, may still have copies. So, if you wish to order the book from
your local New Age bookstore, suggest they contact New Leaf in Atlanta
(they all know this book distributor).


As part of our ongoing research we are very very interested to hear from
other people who may know about new Crystal Skulls or have had some
experiences in the presence of a Crystal Skull. Also since Joshua is
on-line with compuserve, please feel free to contact him if you have any
questions or information. We believe the Crystal Skulls hold a very
important key related to the transformation of our world.


On Compuserve, April 10th, co-author Joshua Shapiro was a quest for a
conference on the Crystal Skulls. The name of the file which contains
the transcript of this conference is called cs_co.trn and is located in
the Ufology Library.


This file has been a contribution made by R. Joshua Shapiro, co-founder of
V J Enterprises, 9737 Fox Glen Dr. #1K, Niles, IL 60714.

V J Enterprises is currently the manager for the book Mysteries of the
Crystal Skulls Revealed. We are seeking other publishers who might be
interested to publish a new American edition or a foreign version. A
Portuguese edition exists in Brasil, published through Editora Ground of
Sao Paulo, Brasil since 1992.

If you have any questions about this material, please address your letters
