Native legends speak of crystal skulls as an inheritance from ancient times. Said to “talk and sing” they are believed to carry messages for all mankind, including what may be discovered when we overcome our fear of death.

Here is one way for you to work with your crystal skull:

The first layer you encounter when working with any skull, including Synergy, is “to remember”. This is the first layer - and this layer has many other layers within it. What you are to called to remember is who you really are. It's so easy to get caught up in the daily things and forget that each life is short and sweet, even with the difficulties. The real you is a BEING OF LIGHT. You are a SPIRITUAL BEING, inside of a physical body. “Remember”.

Hold your skull firmly in either both hands or in just the right hand, keeping the thought of what you wish to work with in mind. The crystal receives the energies via the physical body of the person holding it, absorbs the vibrations, then amplifies them and re-broadcasts them outwards. These amplifications are received by the chakra (or receptors) in the left hand and relayed up the arm, to the brain, to a gland called the hypothalamus and or the limbic system, impressing the vibrations on the sub-conscious mind. The energy continues on, moving down to the right hand, holding the crystal. The process continues in a loop, reinforcing itself. The skull shape is thought to be especially effective in this process, as the inside back of the skull acts as a kind of satellite dish, to broadcast the vibrations of the person using it.

I have been collecting Crystal Skulls for the past 2 years. Currently, I am guardian to 35 skulls.

Metaphysically, the symbol of the skull represents the higher mind. To attain the higher mind of spiritual awareness and psychic ability, we must be released from the thrall of the lower cognitive mind.

There are three types of crystal skulls --

1) Contemporary Crystal Skulls (crystal skulls being made by modern carvers today)
2) Old Crystal Skulls (crystal skulls made anywhere from 100 years to 1000/1500 years ago)
3) Ancient Crystal Skulls (crystal skulls made anywhere from over 2000 years ago to perhaps thousands of years ago)

The 35 skulls that live with me all fit into the Contemporary crystal skull category. I have, however, purchased several skulls from Sherry Whitfield Merrell, current custodian of SYNERGY, one of the world's verified ANCIENT crystal skulls. In keeping, these skulls have been fully charged with SYNERGY's subtle energy.

There is no known scientific test to date that can determine when a crystal skull was created (as in its age), but one generally experiences a much more powerful energy that is linked to the Ancient crystal skulls in comparison to the modern ones. This does not mean, however, that one crystal skull is greater or lesser than another in terms of importance.

I have been told by many crystal skull caretakers that when one agrees to become a guardian of a crystal skull, their whole life changes. Native legends speak of the fact that crystal skulls carry messages for all mankind.

Ancient cultures believed that it was the skull that housed the soul, meaning that they believed that the soul of the person lived inside the human skull.

There exists an ETHERIC ENERGY NETWORK that links all the crystal skulls together. This can be compared to our modern internet which links computers all over the world together. One also needs to remember that computers are made from quartz crystals.

Once a new skull becomes activated, the skull begins working towards fulfilling its mission in the world. At this stage it can link into this etheric energy network and receive knowledge, information and energy from any other crystal skull that is also linked to this network.


In keeping, the newborns have just an important role to play as their older brothers and sisters!

Crystal skulls can be compared to computers. One gets the sense that they, too, hold tremendous information that can help humanity in many ways. They can be utilized as tools for healing. In addition, they are a catalyst for helping people to see their true nature. Like a mini-energy vortex, they may propel a person to release physical, mental, emotional, and pastlife blockages very quickly, which helps one to see oneself. In essence, crystal skulls are akin to a mirror, showing us what resides within.

Many of us believe that the older crystal skulls were gifts from the Gods or the ETs. Thus, the knowledge and information they contain can be of vital importance and assistance for humanity. At present, it appears this information is communicated to a person via telepathy (thought), but eventually it is believed that we may be able to construct a type of machine that will be able to replay the information that has been encoded or recorded within a crystal skull.

The New Age Stones


Crystals For Use In Accessing Past Information


The most effective way to use any gemstone for healing purposes is to wear it as close to the skin as possible. Some women like to "hide" their gemstones within the deep inner recesses of their bras, but the vast majority prefer to wear their chosen gemstone around their neck on a silver or gold plated chain.

Gemstones may, if so desired, be held in the hand while you are watching television during the evening or while you are reading a favorite book or magazine. The healing energies of your chosen gemstone(s) will then be gently absorbed into your physical and mental bodies whilst you are relaxing.

You may also like to place your gemstone under your pillow at night whilst you are asleep; thus allowing the energies of the stone to gently penetrate your subtle body whilst you are in a deep state of sleep.

Certain stones can help you to develop your spiritual abilities and gifts. Use an Amethyst, for example, in developing your intuitive awareness; a Lapis Lazuli for acquiring wisdom and truth and a Moonstone for obtaining humanitarian love and sensitivity. Use your gemstones wisely in the pursuit of all your ambitions and needs.

Here are some of my favorites ......




Recently I read a book entitled The American Indian Secrets of Crystal Healing by Luc Bourgault. There were words stated within that moved me greatly; words that I feel are essential to make note of here.

Simply go to Crystal Wisdom.

Indeed, Luc's words are most powerful and merit careful re-reading and reflection and can be purchased through both Amazon (US) and Amazon (CDA).


Root Chakra (base of spine)
Smoky Quartz

Represented by the colour red, this chakra pertains to physical survival and stability. Blockages include feelings of not belonging and not being home (no roots); not being able to make a living, not being able to materialize goals. One’s core identity is developed here. Panic is a root chakra emotion. Smoky Quartz is a gentle grounding stone. It will draw out and absorb negative energies, replacing them with positive ones.


Sacral (Belly) Chakra (between pubic bone and navel)

Represented by the colour orange, this chakra pertains to creativity, feelings, sexual drive and pleasure. The unhealed inner child lives here. Blockages include the need to control; the need to hold on; the need to mother others and to be mothered; relationship issues, deep resentments over being manipulated or manipulating other people. Stress and trauma tend to become lodged at the sacral chakra. The Carnelian will balance all three lower chakras (base, sacral and solar plexus), encouraging confidence, practicality and the ability to feel at home in the world.


Solar Plexus Chakra (level of lowest ribs)

Represented by the colour yellow, this chakra pertains to self confidence, empowerment, will power and the ability to be materially successful. Blockages include fear of one’s free will being violated; inability to free oneself from coercive situations; inability to accept responsibility; fear of criticism or of being ignored, fear of failure. Citrine helps overcome depression, freeing oneself from oppressive influences. This stone helps to restore one’s joie de vivre.


Heart Chakra (located between the breasts)
Green Aventurine and Rose Quartz

Represented by the colour green, this chakra connects body and mind with spirit and directs one’s ability to love oneself and others, to give and to receive. The healed inner child lives here. Blockages include pain from having been abused; pain from having abused other people/animals; feeling unloved; feeling unable to love; rejection, jealousy, grief, loneliness, difficulties in relationships of all types. Green Aventurine is perhaps the best balancing stone for the heart chakra. The stone encourages calmness and positivity, helping to release emotional pain in a gentle and effective way. Rose Quartz restores calmness, balance and clarity to emotions, helping to attract positive and gentle energy into one’s life. Placed close to the heart, large pieces can release stress and trauma rapidly. This may cause discomfort, so care should be taken to balance the release with more calming and stabilizing stones; hence, Green Aventurine and Rose Quartz can work together.


Throat Chakra (in the V of the collarbone)

Represented by the colour blue, this chakra focusses on communication, expression and manifesting creativity. Blockages include being unable to speak for oneself; lack of accountability; being unable to express feelings; the inability to listen to others; outbursts of rage, anger, crying or abuse; exaggeration/lying, and the inability to cope or take charge of one’s own life. Aquamarine will calm and soothe, bringing tranquility and love. Aids in improving one’s mood, thereby increasing hopefulness, optimism and inspiration. Carried as a good luck charm during examinations and/or job interview situations (to encourage communication skills).


Third Eye Chakra (center of forehead above eyes)
Sodalite and Moonstone

Represented by the colour indigo, this chakra deals with thinking and reasoning skills, intellectual concepts, ethical values, applying judgment to daily life, creating one’s own reality and understanding the meaning of life’s processes and events. Blockages include denial of truth or reality; paranoia and other mental disorders; refusal or fear of introspection; casting blame; negative thinking, refusal to learn from life’s experiences and past mistakes. Sodalite encourages idealism and the drive for truth, helping us to remain true to ourselves. Moonstone is one of the best stones for bringing emotional calm and stability. This stone accentuates receptive (feminine) qualities and promotes sensitivity, intuition and clairvoyance. If feeling overwhelmed by emotions, this stone will help to create balance through the harmonizing of feelings with the higher self. For those out of touch with their feelings, it brings them into awareness.


Crown Chakra (behind top of skull)

Represented by the colour violet, this chakra revolves around attitudes and ethics, character, serving others, courage, wisdom and spiritual challenges. Blockages include spiritual crises; karmic attachments; inability to understand and trust life as a holistic process; refusal of change/transformation; fear of aging and death, and fear of one’s psychic abilities. Amethyst has a high vibration and is a good stone to use during meditation as it calms the mind, thereby raising one’s attunement to spiritual and healing forces.


Earth Chakra (below the feet)

Represented by the colour black, this chakra pertains to one’s connection to the Earth. Hematite is an excellent grounding stone. Keep Hematite with you during intense meditation and stressful situations so that you may continue to be grounded in the present. Place one at the base of each foot.


Transpersonal Chakra (above the head)
Clear Quartz

Represented by the colour white, this chakra pertains to one’s connection with the Divine (spiritual inflow). Due to its unique ability to be programmed and to transmit and receive energy, clear Quartz is the preferred stone for use at this chakra.

The word chakra is derived from the Sanskrit word meaning wheel. If we were able to see the chakras, we would observe a wheel of energy continuously revolving or rotating. Clairvoyants perceive chakras as colorful wheels or flowers with a hub in the center. The chakras begin at the base of the spine and finish over the top of the head. Though fixed in the central spinal column they are located on both the front and back of the body, and work through it.

Each chakra vibrates and rotates at different speeds. The root or first chakra rotates at the slowest speed, the crown or seventh chakra at the highest. Each chakra is stimulated by its own and complimentary color, and a range of gemstones for specific uses. The chakra colors are of the rainbow; red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. The size and brightness of the wheels vary with individual development, physical condition, energy levels, disease, or stress.

If the chakras are not balanced, or if the energies are blocked, the basic life force will be slowed down. The individual may feel listless, tired, out of sorts, or depressed. Not only will physical bodily functions be affected so diseases may manifest, but the thought processes and the mind may also be affected. A negative attitude, fear, doubt, etc. may preoccupy the individual.

A constant balance between the chakras promotes health and a sense of well being. If the chakras are opened to much, a person could literally short circuit themselves with too much universal energy going through the body. If the chakras are closed, this does not allow for the universal energy to flow through them properly which may also lead to dis-ease.

Most of us react to unpleasant experiences by blocking our feeling and stopping a great deal of our natural energy flow. This affects the maturation and development of the chakras. Whenever a person blocks whatever experience he is having, he in turn blocks his chakras, which eventually become disfigured. When the chakras are functioning normally, each will be 'open', spinning clockwise to metabolize the particular energies needed from the universal energy field.

As already mentioned any imbalances that exist within any chakra may have profound effects upon either our physical or emotional bodies. We are able to use our quartz crystals and gemstones to re-balance all our chakric centers and once the chakra has been properly balanced then our body will gradually return to normal.

The reason why crystals and gemstones are wonderful and powerful healing tools are because of what science calls its piezoelectric effect. You can see this effect in the modern quartz watches. Crystals and gemstones respond to the electricity that is coursing through our body, and if the energy is sluggish, the constant electrical vibrations of the stones will help to harmonize, balance, and stimulate these energies.


Ever feel energized one day and tired the next? Your chakras, or energy centers, could be unbalanced. Find out where your energy powerhouse is, and how to tap into your greatest strengths. Go to The Chakra Test in better understand the energy centers of your body.

I currently hold a Level 2 Reiki certificate and focus mainly on sending long-distance healing energies. Before the end of the summer I will have acquired a Crystal Healing Practitioner diploma from Stonebridge College in the UK. By my very nature, I am a researcher. Between reading actual text and/or related articles on the internet, it is my aim to combine my Reiki interests with the metaphysical and healing properties of crystals and gemstones.

I am the webmistress of a site called PORTALS OF SPIRIT, a site dedicated to spiritual information. As with all things, change is necessary to the growth of the soul. We are always evolving. Change should always be looked upon as a positive experience.

Sites are researched on a continuous basis in order to add to the spiritual links list of categories. I do not claim to adhere to and/or follow all of the belief systems that are listed regarding websites and books but am committed to honoring the divinity of all. You will find a list of many books that were of important significance to me while on this journey.

Do take the time to visit.

(... meaning I bow to the divine in you).
