Marion Webb-De Sisto a crystal healing practitioner, delves into the fascinating mysteries and facts surrounding both contemporary and ancient, crystal skulls, a topic I am interested in, but have little experience myself. Her book, Crystal Skulls: Emissaries of Healing and Sacred Wisdom, spans over fourteen detailed chapters split up into three sections - 1) The different types of skulls available (Chinese, Brazilian, Healing, Dimensional Transistion, Travelling and other Crystal Skull Custodians) - 2) How to take care of them (choosing, cleansing, dedicating & tuning) and finally, 3) working with the skulls (self-healing, self-protection and healing and protection exercises for others), as you can see Marion packs a lot of information in 177 pages.
I enjoyed reading about Marion's experiences, in particular the first time she held one, how her first fluorite Chinese skulls came to her at just the right time, and what happened to her during a "Sacred Seven" layout. It is fascinating to learn of tales about ancient skulls belonging to lost continents, or of being relics of a bygone civilization such as happened when Anna Mitchell-Hedges found a skull in the lost Mayan city of Lubaantun, which was said to be a true artifact not hand or machine carved. Equally intriguing are contemporary crystal skulls, which can also hold a great deal of information, depending on the mineral it was carved from, the energy of the carver and the vibrational potency of the location from which the mineral was mined.
Now, I'm not an expert in Crystal Skulls myself, but I've been extremely curious about them for a long while. I have borrowed similar books from a friend in the past, but this is one of the most interesting and appealing by far, and I think that is because of the style it is written in. It's clear Marion certainly knows her skulls, and the patience, practice and skill required to work with them. She not only tells the reader about her own encounters and research, but also includes other people's impressions and experiences throughout their healing and soul progression, and for me that makes it more interesting than just a book of facts. Crystal Skulls: Emissaries of Healing and Sacred Wisdom is an educational book, and one that I will be returning to for reference.
