R. "Joshua" Shapiro

Joshua has been involved with the crystal skulls since 1983 when he had an opportunity to be in the presence of an amethyst skull located in northern California.  At that time, he felt a very strong connection with this artifact which forever changed his life. Since then, he has devoted a great deal of time and effort to sharing with others key information about the crystal skulls and the role they have to play in the prophesized "Golden Age".

He feels very fortunate to have had an opportunity to be able to visit privately with a number of the more well known crystal skulls in the world including: the "Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull", "ET", the “British Museum Crystal Skull”, and “Ami”.

Since Desy has entered in his life, they have been working closely together to offer various crystal skull presentations (lectures and workshops) as well as a unique type of private consultations in conjunction with their personal crystal skulls. 

In the picture shown above, we see Joshua holding his crystal skull known as, “Portal de Luz” (this is Portuguese and means “Portal of Light”).  He has traveled with "him" (the skull) all over the world and "Portal" was carved in Brazil in 1998. 

Joshua is the author of various books including a previous book about the crystal skulls entitled
“Mysteries of the
Crystal Skulls Revealed”, written jointly with Sandra Bowen and F. R. ‘Nick’ Nocerino. This other book was published in 1989 and there was a Portuguese edition issued in Brazil in 1993.

He is also the co-founder of V J Enterprises, which is located in the Chicago area.  This organization has been in operation since February of 1992.  V J Enterprises is dedicated to sharing the best information that describes how our planet will be transformed into a Golden Age by the year 2013.  Joshua has also given a number of other public talks about UFOs and discusses as well, the controversial Bible Code and the Crop Circles. 

He and Desy are currently focusing their efforts to support their non-profit organization known as the World Mystery Research Center. The purpose of this center is to study and conduct research involving various world mysteries. It is their strong belief that somehow hidden within these mysteries is information and knowledge that is absolutely vital for humanity and will help us to create a peaceful world in our near future.
