10 Reasons Why People Are Passionate About Crystal Skulls

by Judy Hall

Do you wonder why some people are so passionate about crystal skulls? Well, from personal experience, I can tell you that the higher consciousness that inhabits the skulls expands human awareness and raises the vibrations of the planet.

10-reasons-why-people-are-so-passionate-about-crystal-skulls

They are portals to the past

Crystal skulls access the Akashic Record and trace the journey of your soul through myriad existences, in and out of earthly incarnation. They help you to recognize what is important and what may be let go. Crystal skulls also assist in retrieving lost parts of your soul and reintegrating these. Contracts made with other souls before incarnation may be no longer valid. Or, they may be an inappropriate carry-over from another life. The skulls convey you to the source of the contract to renegotiate or cancel an agreement. They also help you to reframe your ancestral history.

They are portals to the present.

Crystal skulls facilitate accessing your soul’s purpose, and reveal the soul-learning behind events and experiences that would otherwise be deemed to be traumatic or soul-destroying. The skulls help you to recognize, and remove, out-dated programming that stands in the way of actualizing your true potential. Under their guidance, you are more likely to take the lifepath that is appropriate for you.

They are portals to the future.

Time does not exist for the crystal skulls and the Akashic Record is a plane of endless possibilities. Skulls assist you to move forward through time to seed a better future for yourself, or to check out options.

They are portals to other dimensions.

Different planes of existence vibrate at different rates, interpenetrating each other but normally invisible to a lower frequency. As the skulls vibrate at a higher frequency, and yet have a deep connection with the Earth through the crystal matrix from which they are carved, they provide an anchor for higher vibrations to be assimilated into the earth plane.

They heighten intuitive and metaphysical abilities.

The skulls assist in channeling, insight and connecting with other realms. They communicate with departed loved ones and wise elders – and extraterrestrial races and star beings.

You can use them for self-healing.

With the assistance of the crystal skulls, you can heal yourself physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually. As with all crystals, the skulls hold a ‘perfect blueprint’, a purer vibrational frequency with which you entrain to bring yourself back into energetic balance.

You can use them to heal others.

Healing can be channeled to other people through the skulls by direct contact or by projecting the energies of the skull towards another person no matter what the physical distance between you.

They help to heal the Earth.

The skulls activate dormant energies within earth’s energy lines and detoxify and heal the Earth’s meridian grid.

They offer guidance and wisdom-sharing.

The skulls offer a much wider perspective than is available from the confines of Earth. Their stated aim is to assist the evolution of humankind.

They can assist with shamanic journeying.

The crystal skulls effortlessly convey you into other worlds and other dimensions, assisting shamanic and higher consciousness travel.

Work with one skull – or several – under the guidance of my Crystal Skulls book and you’ll soon discover for yourself what these amazing beings have to offer.

A Q&A with Judy Hall, author of “Crystal Skulls”

Are you interested in learning more about Crystal Skulls? Read on for a great Q&A with Judy Hall!


Are the skulls just a New Age fad?
Indeed not, they’ve been around for thousands of years. But the time has come for them to share their wisdom, regardless of whether they are ancient skulls or not. They do want to usher in a ‘new age’ of expanded consciousness.

How did you come across them?
In 1976 in the Museum of Mankind in London. A life-sized flawless crystal with more than a tinge of blue about it reached out and grabbed me. Its mesmerising eyes were alive with intense intelligence. It was a truly awesome experience. I gazed into it, watching an ancient civilisation going about its daily business. I thought I stood there for a few minutes, it turned out to have been almost two hours. I had been seduced. But it took another forty years for me to begin to collect skulls. I’d met several over the intervening years. The lovely skull-keeper Edwin Courtney introduced me to his huge collection in the faded grandeur of a ballroom in a decrepit Bolton hotel. They lifted the gloomy atmosphere, but didn’t grab me. It took a visit to Glastonbury, the home of all things magical, mystical and downright weird, to get me hooked. Now I have an ever growing collection.

What is their history?
It goes right back into prehistory, often as actual skulls that were plastered and painted, or as stone heads. But jade and other crystal skulls have been found that date back to the Stone Age. the Olmecs (1200–400 BCE) commonly carved huge stone heads and skulls in all kinds of stone including rock crystal (quartz). The skull sizes range from small pendant beads to larger than life sculptures. Although many are carved from stone, gem-quality jade skulls are also known from the first millennium BCE. In ancient China examples of jade skulls go back as far as the Neolithic era examples being found from between 4000 to 6000 BCE that can be up to life-sized. They were also carved in quartz and amber—which was highly prized in the ancient world as a medicine and was carried along a well-established trade route from the Baltic.

Does it matter whether they are genuinely old artifacts or not?
No, it doesn’t because it’s a separate consciousness that takes up residence in the skull that is communicating. That consciousness can just as easily access a new skull.

How can someone work with a new skull they have bought?
Once a skull has been cleansed (all crystals need to be cleansed before use), they can be used for healing, insight, guidance and wisdom-gathering. Some skulls arrive with a being already in residence, but others need to be activated and the being invited to communicate. But it’s important to check out that this is a being with high consciousness, not just some random entity that’s looking for a home. The skulls can be held or placed on your body. It depends on what is needed. Often holding one in your hands or looking into its eyes is enough. My book details many applications and ways of accessing the skulls. It’s important to choose the right kind of crystal skull so there’s guidance on doing that, too.

Lastly, any strange facts you’d like to share?
It is said that one ancient crystal skull that is at least 1,500 years old recently changed hands for over $1m. It had been kept in a bank vault in San Jose, California, for many years and, perhaps not surprisingly, remains there. It is a very dark purple amethyst and was reputed to have sat on the desk of the former Mexican President, Porfirio Diaz. The President was of Mesoamerican-Mixtec ancestry. Ami reappeared in 1979 when a Mayan shaman priest, Francisco Reyes, purchased the skull, which was sent to the United States. In 1983 Ami was put up as collateral on a loan that was not repaid. It was acquired in 1985 by a group of businessmen who have now sold it on.

Crystal Skulls

Judy Hall

9781578635948Crystal skulls are human-skull hardstone carvings often made of clear or milky white quartz known as “rock crystal.” They are allegedly pre-Columbian Mesoamerican artifacts and can be found in the permanent collections of a number of world-class museums, including the Smithsonian and the British Museum.

In occult and metaphysical circles, the skulls have magical and healing qualities:

  • Anna Mitchell-Hedges (owner of a particularly famous skull) claimed that the skull could cause visions and cure cancer and that its magical properties could be used to kill.
  • Drunvalo Melchizedek claims in Serpent of Light that he stumbled upon descendants of the ancient Mayans who possess crystal skulls for use in religious ceremonies in Yucatan temples.
  • Jamie Sams writes of the skulls’ association with Native American mythology.

In this book, best-selling occultist and crystal expert Judy Hall provides a basic primer on crystal skulls:

  • What they are
  • Where they are found
  • Their role in legend and lore around the world
  • Their uses for physical and psychic healing

Also included here in this stunning introductory text is an examination of the prominent “skull keepers” of the past 100 years and how to use and communicate with a crystal skull.

This is a terrific book for those interested in occult and ancient mysteries and/or the power of gems and crystals.

Let Your Spirit Guides Speak

Debra Landwehr Engle

“This book is going to be a valuable tool for people who are serious about their spiritual journey. It’s one of those topics that people can’t get enough of and I want to thank Debra for taking on a huge topic in such a beautiful way.” —Echo Bodine, author of My Big Book of Healing and Echoes of the Soul

“If you want to learn ways to connect with your spirit guides, Debra Engle has provided the map to do so. It outlines ways to do so which are accompanied by stories and examples that illustrate these ways. IT is a must have for spiritual seekers!” —Dr. Steven Farmer, international author, spiritual psychotherapist and shamanic healer

9781571747402This is a clear and thoughtful introduction to building relationships with your spirit guides. It shows readers how helpful spirit guides and angels can be in everything from the simplest to the most challenging of life decisions and how easy they are to connect with, too.

Our spirit guides help us to:

  • Fulfill our purpose
  • Make decisions that will move us forward faster
  • Stop sabotaging ourselves as well as judging ourselves and everyone else
  • Remember that we are more than our job or house or relationship
  • See ourselves as beautiful and everything in life as a gift
  • Give ourselves and everybody else a break
  • Keep growing until the day we leave our bodies behind
  • Go beyond the life we hoped for and onto the life we never even imagined

And they do all of these things when we’re ready and not a nanosecond before. They also often come quietly. As the author states: ”If we expect help from Spirit to arrive with the sound of trumpets and blinding light, we’ll overlook all the nuanced help that’s delivered in small ways every day.”

Goodbye, Hurt & Pain

Deborah Sandella, PhD, RN, Foreword by Jack Canfield

“Wonderful and profound. This book will touch you intimately and probably change your life.” ̶ Jack Canfield, from the foreword

“If you want to live the most inspired life possible, you will need to deal with your amazing emotions. And Deb Sandella provides a groundbreaking, magical, and credible approach to instantaneously shifting our feelings. Mark this day–because this is a powerful process you’re going to use again and again.” –Tama Kieves, USA Today featured visionary career catalyst and best-selling author of A Year without Fear: 365 Days of Magnificence (Tarcher/Penguin) http://www.TamaKieves.com

“In her new book Goodbye Hurt and Pain: 7 Simple Steps to Health, Love, and Success Dr. Deborah Sandella offers life-changing steps to a better life. It’s a must-read!” —Sheri Fink, Inspirational Speaker

This book is uplifting and inspiring.” —Marci Shimoff, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Happy for No Reason

9781573246781In Goodbye, Hurt and Pain, Deborah Sandella uses cutting-edge neuroscience research and her revolutionary Regenerating Images in Memory (RIM) technique to show how blocked feelings prevent us from getting what we want, and she introduces a process that bypasses logic and thinking to activate our own emotional “self-cleaning oven.” Using imagination, color, and shape to visualize feelings and get straight to the root of longstanding problems, she teaches us to move destructive feelings such as fear, anger, hurt, resentment, and envy out of the body. Letting go of old feelings and traumatic memory at a deep, cellular level makes people feel and look younger, lighter, more energized, and less burdened. And they can begin to experience results after just one or two self-directed sessions.

Goodbye, Hurt and Pain also provides seven organic ways of using your feelings to attract more love, better health, and greater success. The process is fast, fun, and as easy as 1-2-3.
