Images to Look For: Do you see at the bottom a

Winged Being? Perhaps there is a strange spaceship at

the top of the skull. And below the winged being, there is

a kind of strange indigenous symbol – or maybe a stone

statue like maybe African or Mayan??


What is Going on Here?

You might be wondering, “What is the source of these images that you have been seeing upon the last few pages of this e-book?” Each one was created from a digital photograph taken from one of our personal crystal skulls. Then we used a computer graphics program to perform a special series of processes upon it that produced the final result you see. We have read that the Mayans used a similar technique to study hidden messages related to some of their special symbols involving reverse images.

In our comprehensive book ( Journeys of the Crystal Skull Explorers),

we will take a much closer look at the details about this interesting imaging technique as we applied it to various pictures of some of the ancient crystal skulls which are featured there. As you may have noticed under each image, we provided for you some suggestions about what type of pictures or distinct images you might observe. Don’t worry if you are not able to see these images right away, it just takes some practice.

We would recommend however, that when you do have the proper time to really sit and gaze at these special pictures, that you will most likely see a great deal of other recognizable images (such as people, places, animals or certain activities, etc ...). If you stand farther away from your computer monitor, you may be able to observe other scenes or discernable objects that you couldn’t see close up. Another technique you can use is to adjust the magnification size for viewing the page within Adobe Reader® or Acrobat®, and by reducing or enlarging the image on your screen; you will see many other hidden pictures as well.

When we have shared these special images in our public lectures we always get “ooh-s” and “aah-s” from our audience. We decided to include this section in our free e-book because it is one of the most fun things we have uncovered to do with pictures of the crystal skulls. So sit back and enjoy!

We would like to offer to you a simple technique for working with the pictures in this book that various people in the crystal skull community use and are having good success with. This technique can be done with either a normal picture of a skull (such as one from our crystal family) or you can experiment with the special images from the last section.

First, just casually glance through this book and observe if any specific picture or image speaks to you; or if you find yourself strongly drawn to look at one in particular. Don’t try to rationalize why you feel this strong connection to the picture (or that specific crystal skull), just trust that there is a reason for this. Then print out this picture on your printer and take a personal quartz crystal (or crystal skull) and place it on top of this picture for 48 hours. If you don’t have a personal crystal to use, see if you can find one at a local new age or gem shop (but again don’t just pick any quartz crystal, take one that calls out to you and feels correct!).

The purpose of this exercise is to transfer a part of the energy that is linked to the particular crystal skull you have chosen into your personal crystal. It has been observed on numerous occasions that when a person links into any facsimile of a crystal skull (such as a photograph) they can experience to some degree, the essence of that object’s energy. We have personally worked with this system and done so with a number of friends and clients, and have been pleasantly surprised by the results that have happened.

Once your crystal (or crystal skull) has been charged, begin to work with it in some fashion. For example you can hold it during your personal meditations, sleep with the crystal under your pillow or just have it in your pocket when you go out of your home. It can be used as a healing stone or just to hold it when you are feeling low in your physical energy. You can even work with this crystal to protect yourself with a positive and strong energy field around you or to amplify and increase your vitality.


Crystal Skull Meditations

for World Peace

[ #1: Weekly World Peace Meditation working in alignment with the energy of the Crystal

Skulls -- held each Sunday at various times, description by Joshua. ]

Today we live in very challenging times. Many people are concerned about our future and if humanity will ever be able to live together in peace and harmony. In our studies we have uncovered a number of different prophecies originating from various indigenous cultures in the world. The common theme contained within these various prophecies deals with specific warnings about potential disasters humanity could face in the future if we do not change our way of life. The best solution to prevent such a future, we believe is, for the people of our world to have a much greater awareness and become more responsible for the well-being of our planet (“The Mother Earth”). And also, to respect all life that lives upon ‘Her’. If we do not do so in a timely fashion, according to these prophecies, this could result in severe and dire consequences that could end life as we know it. Now, it is not our intention by making such statements to create more panic and fear in our world, as we already have enough of this. However, at the same time, the prophecies act as a reminder that we live in a time where some very important decisions must be made for taking the proper actions which will transform our world in a positive way until we really can create a global peace. So the main question that we can each ask ourselves is: “Can we do something that will make a difference and truly prevent or diminish these dark forecasts from ever coming true? “ We believe that the answer to this question is absolutely “YES”!

Global Peace starts with Peace within each of us, therefore, we invite you to participate with us in a special meditation (which was inspired by spirit) that can help us in creating a better world. We have been performing this mediation since the beginning of 2003

when it was initiated through our main crystal skull website. This meditation is a little bit different from similar ones in that we work directly with the energy of the crystal skulls.

Of course, we recognize that any meditation which focuses upon sending of a good and loving energy to our planet and its inhabitants is worthwhile as each meditation that is performed it works synergistically with all the other groups who are offering a similar activity.

Over the years, we have had people join us for this mediation who are living all over the world. Most of these individuals have a strong interest in the crystal skulls but that is not a prerequisite to be able to participate with us. We have developed, what we believe is a simple method that allows anyone to be able to link into the energy and essence of the crystal skulls which we are using as our main focus. The crystal skulls definitely help us in amplifying the peaceful energies that we are sending out to the world during this exercise. In order to allow as many people as possible who wish to participate with us, we have setup the meditation to occur at three different time slots.

Thus, no matter what time zone a person lives in, they can participate at a reasonable time. If you would like to join us for this meditation, you will find the instructions to do so 34





in the following sections. Even if you do not have your own crystal skull, you can still join us and are very welcome to do so.

Time for the Meditation

We recommend that you perform your meditation to last for about 10 or 15 minutes (or you can just allow the energy of the meditation to guide you for its duration). The three specific time periods we are conducting our meditation are shown below. Please check to determine which one is the best for you. The Local Time that is given is based on the perspective of a person living within the U.S. (EST- New York City); England (GMT) or the Time Zone in Sydney, Australia.

Meditation Time #1:

8 AM (EST); 1 PM (England); 10 PM (Sydney)

Meditation Time #2:

12:00 Noon (EST); 5 PM (England); 2 AM (Sydney, on Monday) Meditation Time #3:

6 PM (EST); 11 PM (England); 8 AM (Sydney, on Monday)


If for some reason, you are not able to join us on a specific Sunday during any of the times listed above; there is a special technique known as "Programming your Meditation Ahead" that could be implemented instead. How this technique works is that you go ahead and perform your meditation at a more convenient time during the current week, but that you setup in your mind the intention that the energy you will generate from your session will move forward in time so that it will coincide and link with the rest of us at the specified time period you chose from above. Thus by using this system, you will still be able to join us on the next Sunday and never miss a beat!

An Overview for the Meditation

Philosophy behind the Meditation:

On the very first day I (Joshua) had received the crystal skull known as "Portal de Luz"

in 1999, "he" showed me an image in my mind about how all of the crystal skulls that exist upon our planet are interconnected through some type of etheric energy network.



“He” told me that within each piece of quartz, there exists the potential of an interdimensional doorway that can open up or become activated when this specific piece of quartz (or crystal skull) is awakened. Once the crystal is activated, it can begin to receive and project out various fields of energies and information that can originate from any crystal skull that is linked to this network. This is very similar to how the internet works, as all of the computers on the net are inter-connected and can send and receive information from each other.

Furthermore during the experiments we have conducted

on behalf of the World Mystery Research Center ( see the

full details of our tests in our new book to be released), we have received information that there might exist a very

large clear crystal skull in rotation at the center of the

earth (i.e. – this implies that our planet does not have a

molten core at the center but could be completely hollow)

which is the master skull to coordinate the flow of energy

and information through this entire network. Since we

believe that each crystal skull is unique until itself and specializes in certain specific frequencies of energies that ’he’/’she’ contains (i.e. -- for healing, awakening consciousness, activating one's spiritual gifts, a vessel of universal wisdom, etc ..), this large master skull can and will select the appropriate energies to emit through each individual skull depending upon the unique situation at the time. We believe that the determination of what energies this central skull will send through to the other ones is related to each skull’s current location and how that particular crystal skull is being utilized by its owner (or caretaker) at that precise moment (such as in our meditation).

Thus, if our understanding is correct about how this mediation is truly functioning, then each crystal skull that participates in this activity will emanate a powerful and peaceful energy through it. This energy comes from the crystal skull’s connection to the etheric energy network and is then sent out to the local geographic region which the meditator resides. The key for this process to work well is that a human being is required to activate and open the dimensional door within their respective skull (or crystal) in order for the higher spiritual energies from the network to be broadcast out through the skull.

Additionally we have experienced during the meditations that each participant will receive and channel a portion of this special energy through their own body which can be very uplifting, healing and electrifying. Therefore, one of the main goals we have for this meditation is that by working with a large number of people from all over the world, we are able to create many points of light which are all connected together at the same time. Can you visualize what we are describing here and see its potential?





How to Perform the Meditation

The second part of the vision that I had received from "Portal" was related to the crystal skull etheric network itself. I was shown a method of how a person could fully link into this network that involved a special device that looked like an antenna. Each participant has the ability to inwardly call for this antenna to appear in their location which is created by a special mental visualization. For example, for some people this antenna could just literally appear in front of you when they call it. This purpose of this antenna is to help a participant to more fully connect with the energy of the etheric crystal skull network and to bring a part of this energy into their individual meditation space.

If you will look at the diagram to your

left, you will see I have provided a

simple representation of what this

antenna can look like which you can

use as a reference point. One of the

keys to the success of our

meditation is to energetically

connect with this antenna, so please

just do your best to visualize it. The

antenna itself is actually more

spherical and round then the flat

representation we have given here.

Instruction for the Meditation:

To begin your meditation, first

decide which room in your home you

would like to conduct your session

in. Then find a comfortable place to

sit or lie down. Shortly, I will discuss

how to hold or position the crystal or

crystal skull you will use in the


Now visualize in your mind the

etheric energy antenna and position

it at the very center of your room. Again the reason for visualizing this (imaginary or invisible) antenna is so you are able to link into the crystal skull etheric network and then receive the special vibrational frequencies that emanate directly from the network.

As you begin to move into your mediation, see an energy beam that shoots out from the top and bottom of the antenna and extends upward and downward to infinity. Also make sure that you see a somewhat smaller antenna that extends outward from the main one at the exact place where the main antenna meets the floor in your room (as 37

shown in the diagram above). This small segment or addition stands upward at a 45%

degree angle.

For those participants who have their own crystal skull to work with during the meditation, here is our suggestion how to proceed: ( Note: if you do not have a crystal skull, please view the next section for some alternative ways you may still be able to participate with us). Hold your crystal skull in your hands in any fashion that is comfortable for you in the moment. It is not important which direction the front part of the skull faces, only that the position of your hands feels correct. (Please note: each time you perform this meditation, the positioning of the skull can and will change over time.) For example, if you are in a sitting position, the crystal skull might rest comfortably on your lap or if you are in a lying down position, then the skull could be placed by your side or on top of a part of your body.

Further, we have found that it can be quite helpful if you are able to listen to a beautiful and/or peaceful music in the background during the meditation. The use of headphones can be handy as it will prevent outside noises from distracting you. We have discovered that when a participant adds music to this meditation, this can greatly amplify the energy present and the intensity of their experiences during their session. Now take a minute or two (possibly even before your meditation starts) to do a relaxation or breathing exercise to help calm yourself down and release any anxiety or tension from your day.

At this point, you are now ready to enter into the active part of the meditation. To begin with, first visualize a beam of light (in whatever color comes to you) emanating from the main antenna and touching your crystal skull in its third eye. Feel the energy begin to build up and expand within your crystal skull. Eventually the skull will emit a loving and peaceful energy within the room or space you are situated which will begin to travel and move inside of yourself until it flows throughout all parts of your body. Usually we find that if we visualize the energy coming from the antenna to be pink in color, this is quiet helpful and the most powerful ( the color of pink represents the vibration of unconditional love).

Next, after a period of time (you will know of feel when this is), this powerful and harmonious energy that the skull has given to you will start to expand and move outside of your physical body. So, see or feel this loving energy fill the entire room you are situated in. Then after a minute of two, the energy will continue to expand and cover your entire home. Next, this loving and peaceful energy (which will be a specific color) will continue to expand and is now it is filling every part of the city you live in. Once again after another minute or so, watch as this loving energy continues expanding and is now covering your entire provincial area (i.e. -- your state, province or district).

Eventually, visualize and observe this loving energy completely covering the country that you reside in. And lastly, watch this special healing energy cover our entire planet, touching all the living beings that inhabit our beautiful “Mother” (the plants, the animals, and the people). As you are going through this process, don’t feel rushed, take your time and move from place to place as it is comfortable to do so.

We suggest at this point during your meditation, that for just a few minutes you might want to remain with the vision of the Earth surrounded by this loving (pink) energy.




Then, just before you are ready to return to your physical body, pick one location on our world that you feel drawn to, where there is a great deal of unrest or confusion and send to this location a little extra light and loving energy. One quick note to offer and this is, when we are visualizing this peaceful loving energy being shared with our world, all we can do is offer this energy to all the living beings to choose how (they/he/she) and each must decide of their own accord in which way to utilize it. Now, after you are finished, begin to return to your physical body by retracing your steps back the way you came (from the view of the Earth, to your country, to your provincial area, etc ....). When you come back to your body, you may wish to take a few deep breaths to help ground yourself as well as feel your feet firmly touching the ground before you open your eyes.

And then just take a few minutes to enjoy the special experiences that you just had.

Suggestion: If you happen to have more then one crystal skull, why not invite a friend, family member or neighbor to join us during our time together one Sunday?

What to do if you don’t have

your own crystal skulls?

If this is your situation, you can still participate and meditate with us working with the energies of the crystal skulls. Here are a few suggestions about how you can do this: 1) If you have a picture of a crystal skull that you personally feel an affinity for (such as one shown in this e-book), you can stare at its image during your meditation to bring in the energy of the skulls into your room. Then visualize the special antenna that links to the energy network and imagine that you are holding in your hands the crystal skull you are gazing at. The rest of the mediation follows as we have described in earlier sections.

2) Alternatively, you can work with the piece of quartz that you have charged and activated with a picture of a crystal skull, (as we discussed earlier) and then hold it (as it takes the skull’s place of course) and do the meditation. Again you can pretend as if the crystal you are holding is a real crystal skull.

If you prefer to work with a picture of an older or ancient crystal skull, we have setup on our crystal skull website a page consisting of such pictures. Some of the people who have joined our meditation and first heard about it through our website, actually use these pictures. There are twelve different crystal skulls (ancient, old and contemporary) shown here and again, you can just print out this page on your printer and select the crystal skull that seems appropriate to work with for the meditation. Please see:





3) Another option is to take one of your personal crystals that you have at home and try to see if you can find an actual crystal skull that someone has who lives close to your location. Then, just place your quartz crystal near their skull for a period of time (15

minutes at least is recommended) and let it be charged.

4) Finally, I have met some people who don’t need a physical crystal skull or quartz skull present but still have the ability to visualize one in their mind instantaneously or even at times, see a crystal skull that just appears right in front of them through their inner gift of clairvoyance. So this is just another option or method a person can use to participate in our group meditation.

Other Suggestions and

Final Ideas …

We have found that the most important ingredient for having a powerful experience during this meditation is to not plan ahead or logically figure out what will happen during your session. Most people have discovered that as soon as they start to work with their crystal skull (or the energy connected to them); things have a habit of happening by themselves. We find this spontaneous approach is the best way to conduct your meditation and to fulfill the collective goal for sending out the most loving and peaceful energy to our world as we can, amplified by the energy of the skulls.

In reports we have received from various participants, some people have found the energy connected to this meditation to be quite powerful or conversely felt very relaxed when they finished. For others, they have received some type of healing or it has given to them a greater clarity about their lives. Some people tell us that they have had seen some interesting visions during their meditation. A number of individuals have reported that they feel a new energy inside of their crystal skull after the meditation is concluded.

Either their skull or skulls seem more activated and/or that inside the quartz itself, the crystal has changed its form or become more transparent.

Of course, it is not a requirement that you must join us each and every Sunday. Feel free to participate as you are guided or inspired to do so. We also believe that part of the reason for performing this group meditation is not only will it help to more fully activate the energies contained within our personal crystal skulls but, that on some level it is setting up or enhancing the vibrational frequency within our planet to prepare for the arrival of other ancient crystal skulls that are currently being hidden for their protection.

Thus if any of our readers do have a special contact or relationship with a caretaker of such a crystal skull who is unfamiliar with our meditation, please feel free to invite them to join us.

We truly believe that this group meditation can make a big difference in our world and is helping to link together the energy of the crystal skulls with the individuals who are 40

actively involved with them. So if you are able to participate and join us that would be simply wonderful.

Please feel free to contact us at any time if we can answer any questions about this meditation of if you might have some new ideas about how we could expand or improve it – Thank You and God Bless!!

[ #2 – World Peace Meditations from 2009-2011, held on Specific Days ]

A Special Dream that is Coming True – Please Join Us – Several years ago, we had an idea that sounded fantastic but we were unsure how we could make it happen.

However, we felt one day we would know how to proceed, related to a special world peace meditation. The idea or the question to this meditation was: “What if we invited every person in the world who is a caretaker/guardian of one or more crystal skulls, to join us for a meditation for peace on a specific day, where during each hour on that day, a group of people were performing such a meditation throughout the world. What could happen?” As today, there are thousands upon thousands of new crystal skulls being carved each year which means there are thousands upon thousands of people who have a crystal skull and are their caretaker or guardian.

Well, while Joshua was in Italy for a crystal skull conference in July of 2008, he woke up one morning and knew instantly how to organize such a peace meditation. However, it was not to be performed just on one day but for seven days. Therefore, in addition to the weekly Sunday Meditations we would like to invite you to participate with us for a special series of seven major meditations held between the years of 2009-2011 along with a series of minor meditations. The first meditation was conducted on January 1st of 2009 and now we are continuing on the 13th day of each month. If you would like to participate with us, may we invite you to visit the following webpage shown below. All of the details for these special Crystal Skull based meditations are fully explained here as well as a link to a page which describes how to do the mediation. Please visit:


(OK, finally coming up next is a quick overview of our new book on the crystal skulls, that you have been hearing so much about which will we hope to release before the end of 2010 or in the early part of 2011. We are very proud of this book as we have tried to write it in such a way that it will provide the best information possible for every reader, regardless of their orientation and interest about the crystal skulls or heads.

This book will include some of the most amazing and interesting stories and personal experiences people have had with the crystal skulls, perhaps even beyond what you can imagine. And of course, the book offers some provocative new insights about life and reality which these crystal friends wish to teach us or to remind us of that we already know about, deep within ourselves!!)






Crystal Skulls are human-shaped skulls comprised of various types of quartz crystals.

A number of these ancient artifacts have been uncovered within various ancient ruins in Mexico and Central America. Who created these crystal skulls? Why did they make them? By which process were they fashioned, is a complete mystery. The following questions will be answered within this amazing book.

* Why are the crystal skulls resurfacing now?

* What research has been conducted to better understand the crystal skulls?

* Why are so many people desiring to have a personal contact with one?

* What is there about the energy that surrounds the crystal skulls that is producing

tremendous and profound changes within the lives of the people who meet them?

Join Joshua Shapiro with his partner Katrina Head, explorers of the Crystal Skulls, as they take you deep into the secret world of the Skulls. Inside the pages of this book you will meet some of the most famous crystal skulls on the planet as well as the special individuals who are intimately involved with them. Find out why the authors believe the Crystal Skulls are one of the most important ancient artifacts that have ever been discovered and how these crystalline friends will ultimately take humanity into a time of “Total Peace.”

Joshua Shapiro and Katrina Head have dedicated

their lives to the study of the Crystal Skulls as well as providing the very best information upon this subject

through their public presentations, websites and books.

Their crystal skull research is sponsored by the WORLD

MYSTERY RESEARCH CENTER located within the U.S.

Joshua Shapiro and Katrina Head are involved with a

Feature Film that will present a powerful story

regarding how the Crystal Skulls will play a key role

in bring forth a time of total Peace for the Earth in our near future which Joshua has received will one day

be called “The New Dawn” .

Crystal Skull Explorers

Table of Contents

(summarized overview)



Book Objectives and Overview



(The book begins with a story – it starts during the time of the Mayans in Mexico in the 16th century as the Spanish Conquistadors are beginning their invasion and looking for a “Talking Skull”. The story moves to our modern time where we see a crystal skull has recently been unearthed in a Mayan ruin after being hidden for almost five hundred years. The skull calls to a young man, whose soul was the one to hide it in this distant past. The skull has arrived just in time as our world is threatened by a deadly disease that only the crystal skulls can help to cure …)


Chapter 2 – What are the Crystal Skulls?

(In this chapter we take a quick look at the material of which comprises the crystal skulls- - quartz crystals and discuss their properties. We define the three different types of crystal skulls known to exist in our world {ancient, old and contemporary}. And finally we offer a brief history of some of the key moments that have occurred around the crystal skulls from the 18th century till present to bring them into the public’s attention.) Chapter 3 – The Ancient and Old Crystal Skulls

(Chapter 3 introduces our readers to a few of the ancient and old crystal skulls that are known in the world presently. We provide a physical description and history, and offer comments from the guardians or owners where possible. The main crystal skulls that we discuss include (the type of quartz is in parenthesis):


“ET” (SMOKY QUARTZ), “MADRE” & “RAINBOW” (CLEAR), “SYNERGY” (CLEAR) OLD: BRITISH MUSEUM CRYSTAL SKULL (CLEAR) AND THE PARIS CRYSTAL SKULL (CLEAR) We also briefly discuss several other crystal skulls that are known publicly following into these categories, as there is not enough space in the book for a full description.}

Chapter 4 – Contemporary Crystal Skulls,

The Caretakers

(Next we take a look at the newly made crystal skulls also known as contemporary crystal skulls. Here we hear from eight owners {or as we call them caretakers} of such skulls to compare their stories and experiences versus the older ones. You will meet Marion Webb-De Soto from England, who has written the first book that focuses upon this type of crystal skulls. Additionally we hear from Jaap van Etten and C. Ravenia Youngman, who each have more than 100 crystal skulls in their personal collections.

Two other good friends we introduce, who are working in the world closely with their crystal skulls including Wendy Willett and ShavatY. Next you hear from Blue Arrow Rainbow Eagle Woman as she discusses her personal crystal skull, known as “Mozes of Peace” (her and her daughter have over 300 skulls in their circles). Following this, we hear from Katrina Head about her rose quartz skull, “The Guardian” and how this skull forever changed her life. Lastly, Joshua introduces his 10 lb. smoky quartz skull, “Portal de Luz” and about their early adventures. The last section is an honorable mention of other friends who are very active and work with their crystal skulls to share them with the public.)

Chapter 5 – Contemporary Crystal Skulls,

The Carvers

(This chapter introduces our readers to three very special and talented carvers who have the rare gift to create a crystal skull. We hear from Carey Robbins in Oregon who has carved several human-sized skulls including a movable jaw. You will meet one of the special carvers that work in Brazil who has personally made over 1000 crystal skulls of all sizes. Next, you meet Georg Brandt, a master carver from Idar-Oberstein in 45

Germany, a place where some of the finest gemstone carvers in the world live. Lastly, we introduce you to “Moonhawk” (Gary Butler), who has been trained in the traditional ways to carve a skull that provides us a completely different orientation about what the crystal skulls represent to the indigenous people and their keys to activating them.) Chapter 6 -- Our Personal Adventures with the Crystal Skulls

(with Joshua Shapiro and Katrina Head)

(Chapter 6 is our opportunity to share with the readers our most treasured stories and experiences with the crystal skulls. Joshua focuses about his experiences with the Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull of Love; “Ami”, the amethyst skull, “ET” {a human-sized smoky quartz skull} along with various visits with the British Museum Crystal Skull

{including a very rare and private one with Blue Arrow Rainbow Eagle Woman}. In addition, he speaks about the three journeys he has taken to Peru searching for a Blue Crystal Skull inspired by an inner vision in 1990. Joshua finishes up with pieces of his crystal skull journeys in 2009 into Mexico City (seeing six old skulls) and a six week journey to Europe in the summer. This chapter finishes with Katrina Head sharing a few of her interesting experiences and stories working with the “Crystal Kids” and how they have helped her. Plus we include pieces of our travel reports from 2009-2010 going to: Florida to see Dr. Brown’s Atlantean Ball; a visit with “Max” in Atlanta; the 9-9-9

Conference in Arkansas; the Crystal Skull Conference in Mexico City (10/09); our 14

day journey to Peru with the skulls (11/09); our trip to the America Southwest (12/09) and finally a visit to a labyrinth in Wisconsin and meeting hundreds of Orbs (3/10).

Chapter 7 -- Personal Experiences and Insights with

the Crystal Skulls (from various sources) (The goal of this chapter is to provide an idea of the type of experiences that can happen to a person who has contact with an ancient crystal skull. Here we hear the stories of various people from different parts of the world about what happened to them while they were visiting or had contact (at times indirectly) with the Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull, “Ami” and “ET”. The chapter finishes with a few additional stories around our crystal skull, “Portal de Luz” including the possibility of the existence of a gigantic crystal skull that may exist at the center of the earth?)

Chapter 8 -- How to Work with a Crystal Skull

(Personal Techniques and Exercises) (This chapter focuses upon our suggestions about how the reader can select the right crystal skull for themselves. We also share our personal process that we used to activate our own crystal skulls (one in which our skulls indirectly taught us). Additionally we included some personal stories about what effect our circle of skulls had upon people who came to our private sessions. Other topics discussed in this chapter include a simple system for protecting yourself from negative energy or thoughts and we discuss a bit more about the etheric crystal skull energy network. We provide some suggestions of how to prepare yourself when it’s your time to meet in person an ancient crystal skull and what are the differences between these older skulls and the newer ones.)


Chapter 9 -- The Indigenous Views of the Crystal Skulls

(Some researchers believe that if there is a group of people that live on our planet who perhaps truly understand what the crystal skulls are all about, this can be found within the various indigenous cultures. Some of these tribes {or nations} not only may have been guarding some very old crystal skulls for a long time but also have a prophecy or oral traditions {that have been passed down from generation to generation} which discusses the crystal skulls. Thus you will find in this chapter comments from seven different Native American sources from North America and a few other sources that provide the perspectives from the Mayans, Toltec and the Inca. ) Chapter 10 -- Crystal Skull Research

(Part I – Research conducted before 2000)

(Chapters 10-12 contain some of the most important information for this book. Within these chapters the reader will discover a wide range of different scientific research that has been conducted over the years related to the skulls. Chapter 10 focuses upon the key research conducted before the year of 2000 by various individuals and groups. We include a summary of the special research done by Frank Dorland with the “Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull of Love” in the 1960’s-1970’s. The face created from a mold of the Mitchell-Hedges Skull organized by published author, Frank Joseph. The key work and investigation done by The Society of Crystal Skulls International {founded by F. R. ‘Nick’

Nocerino}; and finally the special research project conducted for the BBC documentary created by Morton and Thomas at the British Museum in London in 1996.) Chapter 11 -- Crystal Skull Research

(Part II – The World Mystery Research Center Experiments with electronic devices)

(The World Mystery Research Center, co-founded by Joshua Shapiro, is a scientific and educational non-profit foundation. Its goal is to research from a scientific and paranormal perspective a wide range of subjects considered to be world mysteries including of course, the crystal skulls. Within this specific chapter, the authors focus upon their involvement in various experiments and tests utilizing a number of different electronic devices. The goal for performing these tests was to better understand the energetic effect that the crystal skulls have upon the people who have had a personal encounter with them. Such devices which were utilized included: Meridian Stress Test Systems, Aura-based machines, a Brain Wave detector, a special energetically-sensitived pendulum and another device known as a Lecher Antenna.) Chapter 12 --Crystal Skull Research

(Part III – The World Mystery Research Center Secret Codes and Crop Circles) (This final research chapter involves secret codes that may be related to the crystal skulls which can perhaps unlock their mystery. First we look at the messages given about the crystal skulls using the controversial Bible Code. Secondly, we present some 47

other hidden information in a pictorial format that is contained within the crystal skulls themselves using a special computer process that works with digital images of the skulls. The last part of the chapter deals with our experiments in various crop circles in England and Holland, when we brought some of our crystal skulls into these circles and discuss what happened to us – some great stories in this section of the book.) Chapter 13 -- Crystal Skull Theories

(What is the Purpose of the Crystal Skulls?

Who Created the Ancient Skulls and How were they Made?)

(Our final chapter takes a deep examination of various ideas and theories that originate from various sources with strong links to the crystal skulls which discuss: Why the crystal skulls were created and by whom; How they were made; and What might be their ultimatum purpose especially as it is related to our near future. You will hear the perspectives from a few well-known crystal skull researchers as well as discover what information has been received through various psychics or spiritual channels who have worked closely with a crystal skull. Next, we take a look at the possibility of the existence of a special set of 13 crystal skulls that belong together. There are many individuals who have a strong feeling that such a set of skulls truly exist as well as this legend has been revealed through various oral traditions of the Native Americans. We also look at a story told that states there is a unique set of crystal skulls that may have originated from a very advanced civilization that lives inside of our planet (The Hollow Earth). Additionally, in this chapter we review certain ideas given previously in the book to further answer the three questions we posed above collected from various indigenous sources or from the personal experiences of those who had a contact with one of the ancient crystal skull. The chapter concludes with some final thoughts from Joshua about what role the crystal skulls are serving in our modern culture.)

Crystal Skull Events

with Joshua Shapiro

and Katrina Head

Since 2001, Joshua has worked and traveled to numerous places around the world ( and now is working closely with Katrina Head since April of 2009) in order to share key information about the crystal skulls with the general public. As you will read below, we offer various types of activities and events related to the crystal skulls as well as an opportunity for an individual to have their own personal experience and contact with one. As we move forward, we intend to continue our outreach into many new locations within the world and to work more closely with other crystal skull teachers and caretakers.

What does our public Crystal Skull Event consist of?

Public Lecture (2-3 hours) – a slide presentation that provides a brief history and discussion about how the crystal skulls first surfaced and which ones are publicly known today. We then delve in various theories about their true purpose and why the crystal skulls are important for humanity’s future. Lastly, we present the research we have been conducting with the crystal skulls through our World Mystery Research Center (based in the U.S.)

Workshop (includes the “Lightworker’s Toolbox”, 2-3 hours) – A continuation and further exploration into the key theories surrounding the origins of the crystal skulls. This workshop includes some hands-on work with an actual crystal skull and a discussion about the process that can bring your personal skull to life (or activate it). The workshop concludes with a talk about using (or finding) one’s true inner or spiritual gifts to discover your life’s purpose and help to create peace in our world.

Crystal Skull Healing and Intuitive Consultations – an opportunity to work privately with one of our awakened crystal skulls, receive an uplifting energy from Katrina, a gifted healer and/or to have an intuitive question and answer period with Joshua (who works with his and your spirit guides).

Meditation for World Peace – We offer throughout our event a meditation working with the energies of the crystal skulls to send out to the Earth a powerful energy for world peace.

Joint Events -- In 2004, we began to investigate working with other crystal skull caretakers, researchers, and teachers (including indigenous elders) which resulted in three small conferences in Switzerland and two Crystal Skull Festivals in Europe (the Netherlands in October of 2006 and Hungary in October of 2007). From 2010 and beyond, we are hoping to offer more festivals within the world. To contact us or for more details, visit our website at:

If you would be interested to bring one of our crystal skull events to your local area or have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We believe that the message of the crystal skulls is very important for humanity’s future. Hope to meet you at an upcoming event!!

Joshua Shapiro & Katrina Head – the crystal skull explorers




We thought it might be of interest for our readers to briefly discuss how we conduct our own private consultations in order to give to you an idea about how a person can incorporate a crystal skull into their own spiritual work. What we have done is to combine the individual spiritual gifts of the people helping in the session working in tandem with the energy that is held by each of our personal crystal skulls.
