5.14 – THE CRYSTAL SKULLS (10.7.13)


Lhasa, Tibet. March 1959. As the Chinese begin to invade this capital city, the Dalai Lama and a small group of high lamas flee into the treacherous Himalayan Mountains, risking imprisonment, torture and even death to make the 14-day trek to Nepal. According to reports, in their possession was a 22-pound crystal skull named Amar.

“I’ve heard many stories about a high lama who fled from China, took a large crystal skull. Other Tibetan monks who risked their lives hiding crystal skulls when the Chinese came. So, that tells me there also is something more than just a physical infatuation with these objects, that there’s some spiritual component.”

“We have a Tibetan priest who hauls a 22-pound crystal skull out of Tibet, specifically to stop it from getting into the wrong hands. Building a human skull out of crystal could serve as a sort of antenna for the consciousness of someone who is a highly-adept meditator to be able to focus their minds for the purposes of healing, or potentially, for destructive purposes.”

If the stories are true, why did the skull’s caretakers go to such great lengths to protect the 22-pound object? Could there really be a potentially dangerous component to the Amar skull and other crystal skulls, especially if one were to fall into the wrong hands?

Bavaria, Germany. March 2011. A 20-pound crystal skull is discovered at the former home of a high-ranking Nazi SS officer. Some researchers believe the skull was once owned by Heinrich Himmler, the sinister henchman of Adolf Hitler and the man who oversaw the extermination of millions of people during World War II.

“I, for one, think that probably Heinrich Himmler had procured a crystal skull. The Nazis were really obsessed with procuring ancient knowledge, and part of that ancient knowledge was with the crystal skull. In the waning days of World War II, the Nazis were heavily involved in the wonder weapon that was going to change the course of the war and pronounce them as victorious.”

– Ken Storch
(Paranormal Investigator / Ret. Police Officer)

“Nazis, specifically Hitler, loved the occult. There’s no question that Adolf Hitler, as barbaric and as insane as he was, was into the occult and desperately wanted to possess all these things, because he believed that they would give the Nazis incredible powers.”

George Noory (Radio Host, Coast to Coast AM)

“They basically went on the hunt for as many of these relics and artifacts as they could find to try and find out if these ancient religious relics contained fantastic powers that could be used against the allies during the Second World War.”

“The Nazis were obsessed with skulls and skull imagery, and especially the knowledge of the ancestors. It’s not a stretch, with their interest in ancient occult legends and lore, that the Nazis knew of the tremendous power of the crystal skull.”

– William Henry (Author / Investigative Mythologist),

(Lost Secrets of the Watchers), (The Secret of Sion),
(Egypt: The Greatest Show on Earth)

Is it possible, as many Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe, that Hitler’s henchman, Heinrich Himmler, acquired a crystal skull in an effort to direct its power against those who opposed the Third Reich?

“The legend says that mankind has to be sufficiently prepared for the knowledge that the crystal skulls contain, because, apparently, this is knowledge that can either be abused or used for good.”

Chris Morton (Author, The Mystery of the Crystal Skulls)

“In the case of Heinrich Himmler, what we’re seeing is a man who is going to will his power over everybody else. And the question is whether he used the skull into trying to get people to do certain things. Crystal skulls are said to somehow be able to transform the intention of a human being. And this is very much a powerful weapon. This is something which can be used against other human beings.”

– Philip Coppens
(Author, The Ancient Alien Question),
(The Lost Civilization Enigma)

Are ancient crystal skulls, like the one possessed by Heinrich Himmler, really amplifiers of energy, both positive and negative? And, if so, could the possession of a skull really give its owner potentially destructive powers? Perhaps the answer can be found by examining the possible reason why these mysterious crystal relics were fashioned in the shape of human skulls in the first place.

“It may be that building a crystal in the exact shape of the human cranium does have some sort of energetic quality. The crystallized form of the human skull was believed to represent the eminence of the soul upon death. It may even be possible that that crystal skull, when it focuses this human energy field, could be used as a form of propelling the aspirant into an out-of-body experience, to resonate with their own skull, to raise the frequency of their bioenergy field, so that they can achieve this out-of-body state.”

David Wilcock (Author/Filmmaker),
(Author, The Source Field Investigations),
(The Synchronicity Key)

“One interesting thing about a crystal skull is a crystal is a clear thing, and the idea of a skull is a very dark idea. So, you have light and dark combined in the same symbol, and a kind of wisdom comes out of seeing something combined, a holistic bridging of the light and the dark.”

– Jonathan Young, Ph.D.
(Founding Curator, Joseph Campbell Archives)

“Skull motifs are common really throughout the world to signify death and another world, the world of the dead. In these mythologies, there was another world…a death World…to which everybody went, really, when they died. And it was very parallel to our own world.”

– Sabina Magliocco, Ph.D.
(Prof. of Anthropology & Folklore, CSU Northridge)

“In Tibetan Buddhism, the skull is very powerful. It has a deep, deep meaning, because it stands for death. It also stands for the transcendence of death, overcoming of death. So, it’s a symbol that also represents impermanence of life.”

– Deepak Shimkhada, Ph.D.
(Adjunct Prof. of Religion, Claremont Graduate Univ.),
(Prof. of Hindu Studies, Claremont Lincoln Univ.,
School of Theology)

Were 13 ancient crystal objects shaped like human skulls in an effort to suggest they might have the power of life and death? If so, what is the source of such an awesome ability? And why has it been lost to mankind for centuries? Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe the answers might be found in a mythical lost civilization, one that vanished overnight.
