Crystal Skull
Because of  the current Indiana Jones movies there has been much interest in crystal skulls.
My first encounter with a crystal skull was in July of 1989. At the time I was a member of a metaphysical study group and had just returned from a month of studying the Aboriginal way of life in Australia.
During the monthly meeting of our group, one of the leaders mentioned to me
that she had a group going to Indianapolis the following week to see
the crystal skull. My reaction was, “What’s a crystal skull?”

She immediately explained to me the skull had been carved from pure quartz
crystal, was perfect in every way and that this particular skull had
been found in Lubantaan  in Belize in the 1920s by Helen Mitchell-Hedges who was then 16 years old.

Helen Mitchell – Hedges, along with Lynn Gardner would be exhibiting the
skull the following week . It sounded like the perfect opportunity to
learn something new, who knows where this might lead?

Listening to the lecture , I became fascinated. It seems the skull had been found
in a Mayan pyramid after having been left there many centuries
previous. Legends abound , but no one really knows where it came from
or how old it is. Many legends seem to point to it having been created
in Atlantis or left by Aliens.

It certainly was beautiful! Made of pure crystal, there wasn’t a blemish to be found, down to the
removable jaw bone! Mitchell-Hedges confirmed that when she first found
it , the skull was cloudier than in it’s present state, it was now
crystal clear!

  It was valued at over 18 million dollars, and it seemed to have supernatural powers,  when in it’s presence, people
would experience varied types of paranormal behavior. Some would see
the future, while others experienced alien encounters and past lives. It was truly a masterpiece, unlike anything I had ever seen before.

Lynn Gardner announced  that she would be leading an expedition to Belize the following January to find the temple where the crystal skull had been found.

My interest was peaked, there was no way I was going to miss that! Besides
that it would be a lot warmer n Belize in January than Indiana!

At this period of time in the history of man, there is probably more individual searching being done into the theories behind the origin of the human race,what happens after death,the possibility of life on other planets, and what our relationship is to these life forms, if they do exist. There are millions of people who are questioning the existence of God, and who he really is
