A Crystal Skull from Mexico
Eight years ago, Jane Doherty, was walking in a store in
Mexico and spotted some interest quartz crystals that were calling
to her from a glass case. As she neared this case, she saw that
contained within were two crystal skulls. She felt such an affinity to
these pieces that she had to purchase them. |
About the time she acquired these crystal skulls, Jane began to look at other ways of making a living, as she was a school teacher at the time and found that she had an interest in more metaphysical or paranormal subjects. She started to find that she could do spiritual consultations, and would receive clear information about other people and their lives. Also she noticed that the larger of two crystal skulls was always near her while doing these sessions). So somehow, the crystal skull was acting as a catalyst to allow Jane to work with her natural spiritual gifts.
At the present time, Jane is the President of the Jersey Society for Parapsychology, and does Ghost Investigations and clears haunted houses. She is going to be offering a Haunted House Tour in the New Jersey - New York area in October (1995). She has also been featured on "Sightings" and other special shows on NBC and was a honorable mention in two books dealing with ghosts.
How I became familiar with Jane is indirectly through Internet. A person by the name of Robert Rouse, had been posting copies of the Center of Attention's newsletters (A New Age Center in Santa Clara, California) to one of the mailing lists I am subscribed to. One of this center's members, Wayne Nicholas, went to attend the sacred Mayan Sunrise Ceremony, on March 21st, in Uxmal, Mexico. This ceremony was held as part of a prophecy that new energies would start to be infused into the earth. The gathering drew people together from all over the world. Wayne reported that he met Jane at this gathering and she brought a crystal skull with her. Wayne described in the center's newsletter some of the powerful ceremonies conducted with the skull, while they were there.

Some additional information I learned from Jane: She had read our crystal skull book ("Mysteries of the Crystal Skulls Revealed") and was thinking of contacting me for over a year. (Must have been the right time aye?) In addition, Jane told me about the two skulls she had. 'Maya', the larger of the two skulls is clear quartz crystal and has some indentations in the temples, similar to the Amethyst and Mayan Crystal Skulls discussed in our book. "Maya" was the crystal skull that Jane brought to Mexico and she calls it "Maya" because she felt that in Uxmal, this crystal skull became re-activated and also because this skull has the feel of being feminine. The smaller, second crystal skull is a rutilated skull that calls "Alden", the middle name of her close friend Ron in California, who felt it was extremely important that she go to Mexico, so she honors Ron by naming this second skull after him. So "Maya" and "Alden" really have not been shared with the public too much, but this coming September, Jane and myself will begin to work together to offer a lecture that discuss many of the known ancient crystal skulls today and to also provide people an opportunity to work directly with an ancient crystal skull. We will also begin to do some research with "Maya" by working with sensitives and scientifically minded individuals, in order to gain a better understanding of how these skulls were made and for what purpose.
Almost each person who worked with the two crystal skulls felt some energy or received some information related to the history or purpose of the crystal skulls. About half of the individuals who worked with the skulls felt they were very old and some people (including a Peruvian Shaman doing a reading with cocoa leaves) felt it was a recent skull. My own experience with "Maya" indicated that this crystal skull was channeling a great deal of energy, on a level similar but not as intense as some of the human size ancient crystal skulls. I felt that there also was a spiritual being who worked around Jane and the crystal skulls (sort of like a triangle, as Jane has some very powerful energy around her as well). In any case, when I held "Alden", the rutilated skull, the two skulls canceled out each others energy.
There were three men who worked with the crystal skull, Marc Whitford from the Washington, DC area,
and two friends in the Chicago area, who after working with "Maya"
we noticed that the quartz was much clearer inside. In the case
of Tom, who was one of these three individuals, in a private
session with Jane, she said that smoke was coming from "Maya"
when he worked with it. Some people saw an old man connected
with the sculpting of the skulls and other people were transported
to times in the earth past seeing temples and strangly dressed
people. But I think most people felt that "Maya" was more gentle
and had a feminine energy and "Alden" held a more masculine energy.
It was absolutely amazing watching all of these sessions going on,
as Jane was taking pictures and controling the tape recorder while
I for the most was the video camera person.
THE AURA PICTURES!!
During the lecture we were giving at Heart and Soul, in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, my slide projector was having some problems. The light bulb began flickering and eventually it wouldn't come on. I was speaking at the moment (Jane and I took turns sharing our stories) so I asked Jane if she could check the projector and see what is wrong. When she just touched the projector, the light bulb exploded (Jane has a habit of strange things going on around her due to the strong energy she channels as a gifted psychic - so she agreed not to touch the projector any more after this, believe me!). Fortunately, one of the people who was attending our lecture lived closeby and had her own projector which we used and she allowed us to use for the rest of our Wisconsin lectures.
For those of you who live in the NY or NJ area (US) and would like to have your own experience with "Maya" or "Alden", or just to receive a reading from their caretaker Ms. Doherty, you can contact Jane at:
