Title: Crystal Skulls: Emissaries of Healing and Sacred Wisdom
Author: Marion Webb-De Sisto
Genre: Indie/Non-Fiction/ Alternative-Healing/Crystal Skulls
Length: 177 pages
Format: eBook
Reviewer: Sassy Brit

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.

  5. Well, Sassy, I posted the URL on Twitter for this review,but have to tell you that the skulls have always been a major fascination for me; especially those that are verified as artifacts. It seems incredible that they were able to fashion such intricate things with no apparent high tech tools.

    What does it mean when a crystal sings? I had one that was eventually stolen from me and whenever I held it almost seemed in some way to "sing".

    Oh yes-email:

  6. Hi Ruth,

    A number of crystal skull custodians have told me that the skulls "sing." It seems to happen when several of them are together. The sound isn't like human singing, but rather a high pitched noise. What does it mean? Well, maybe they're just happy to be together or perhaps they're chatting to each other?

    Blessings, Marion. ^j^

  7. EH,

    I don't own one, but I really want one now! :) I can totally understand how you feel.

  8. Yes, Ruth,

    that part of their history, the ancient crystal skulls totally blows my mind!

    Thanks for posting it on Twitter!

    I've been interested in them for a while, but reading this book has sparked off my interest again.

    Hi Marion

    Your book sounds fascinating and we share a love of crystal skulls, though I am still very new at this. I have heard mine singing and, of course, nobody else in the house seems to hear it. Mmm.

    I would love to be entered in this giveaway - you know my details from Crystal skulls and Oracles


  10. Hi Juanita,

    Good to see you here. Ah, one more person who has heard them singing.

    Blessings, Marion. ^j^

  11. Hi Marion,

    This is no doubt a very fascinating book for me.I have absolutely no knowledge about crystal skulls at all ! People are actually talking about hearing their crystal skull sing and here, I don't even know where will I have my own skull for the starters ?!?

  13. Hi, Marion.

    What is your opinion on book trailers? Do you think they help in book sales?

  14. Hi Tracey,

    I don't have any for my books so I can't really make a judgement. I've looked at a bunch of them myself and some are quite good while others don't impress me. The best I can tell you is that a book trailer wouldn't persuade me to buy a book.

    Blessings, Marion. ^j^

  15. Sounds great considering i know about this much *pinches thumb and index finger closely* on crystal skulls!! lol :)

  16. Hi bianca_riot,

    I'm sure the crystal skulls would be happy to tell you about themselves. :-)

    Blessings, Maz. ^j^
