Maya and Alden
Maya and Alden are two small crystal skulls discovered in Mexico near ancient ruins. Maya , the larger of the two, is a clear quartz crystal approximately 4 or 5 lbs. with elongated indentations at the side temples and deep indentations underneath the jaw at the base of the crystal skull. Maya is approximately four and a half inches long, two and a half inches wide and two and a half inches high. Maya also exhibits three rows of teeth that seem to smile at you. Alden is a smaller, heavily rutilated quartz crystal that is named after her close friend from California , who she lovingly holds responsible for his push to reactivate the larger skull at the ancient Mayan ruins. Alden is about two and a half inches long, one and a half inches wide and just as high .He weighs only seven ounces but usually surprises the person who hokls him with a jo It of energy. Willeru from Peru recently held Alden and then exclaimed, "What Power!" with a stunned expression on his face. Alden exhibits two rows of front teeth with the same elongated indentations on the side temples and underneath the jaw like Maya. Alden and Maya are similar in style to the larger Amethyst skull.
Both Maya and Alden's eye sockets are dull and unpolished which may indicate there were other crystal or semi-precious stones placed in that space at one time. There is a triangle symbol and slight ledge at the base of the triangle for a nose. Maya fits comfortably in the palm of the hand and can be held easily with the fingers of both hands in the side indentations. Alden can be gripped in the side indentations with the fingers of one hand. The elongated indentations on the side temples of the skulls are perfect handles to be used as a hand tool in a ritual or to direct energy to specific areas. While showing Maya to a client from Ohio whom Jane had just met, she unexpectedly entered a trance state. During the trance, Jane received a message to direct the energy of the skulls to the earthquake and volcanic areas of the world. Directing energy to these areas would help anchor and balance these areas. This chance meeting occurred the day before Jane's departure for the 1995 Solar Initiation ceremony in Merida, Mexico. Jane had no intention to enter the trance-state. In face, she had not been in a trance for at least three years. Somehow, the intense energy around Maya triggered her very deep trance condition.
In March 1995 during the Sacred ceremonies at Uxmal. Maya was reactivated (in the Temple of the Jaguar during a ritual to reactivate and to release the energy of the skull. The ritual was conducted by four other females besides Jane. The other females were from England and Australia. Jane stood in the middle of the temple with a female on each corner of the square temple. Maya was held above and in front of the Jaguar statue in a feminine ritual performed from past life memory, as Father Sun penetrated the crystal skull. Maya was then carried to the top of the Pyramid of theMagician where Maya's energy was directed into Mother Earth to start a healing process. As the energy released, witnesses saw a beam of light stream out of the skull and directly enter the earth below the pyramid. During the conference, the energy of "Maya" was shared with small groups of people attending the conference, including Mayan elders and Tibetan monks. The Tibetan monks were delighted with the skulls. Their faces beamed with illumination as each monk held Maya. One monk commented, "the shape of the skull was similar to the shape of the skull of the eight reincarnation of Buddha."
There have been a number of people who used psychometry to tune into the Skulls since Jane's return from Mexico. Most felt there was an interaction of energy between the person and the crystal skull. Some observed a being around Jane that also interacted with the energy of the skull. Research with sensitives have described Maya as having gentle energy that transforms. "Maya made me joyous, happy and light" commented one researcher. Alden's energy is described as a projection of energy that seems to heal by using it in parts of the body for pain, release and healing. Another researcher commented, "Alden makes me feel relaxed and Maya makes me feel like she wants to take me to other dimensions."
In 1987 Jane Doherty walked into a store in Cunevaque in Mexico looking for a souvenir to remember her trip to Mexico. Convinced there was nothing to buy, Jane advanced towards the exit, when she spotted a locked, glass case posting a sign that read artifacts. As she neared the case, the crystal skulls captured her attention. Jane experienced such an affinity to the skulls that she had to purchase them. Her love for the crystal skulls seemed unusual to her since she had no interest in crystal and no explanation for her attraction to the skulls. As a second thought, she decided to question the storekeeper as to where the skulls were discovered. Unfortunately, he did not speak english. He just kept uttering the name of some Mexican ruin. At the time Jane was not aware there were ruins in Mexico, so she did not understand the Spanish name. The exact discovery of the skulls at a particular ruin can only be determined psychically. At the time she also purchased two black (onyx Jaguar statues with jade inlays and a feathered serpent with holes drilled in the mouth to probably be hung around the neck.
Recently a woman of Mayan ethnic background born in (Guatemala who now lives in Massachusetts, held the skulls. The shaman asked the skulls for information regarding origin. She commented, "Maya spoke to her and revealed the skulls origin. Mercedes confirmed where Jane psychically determined the discovery location. Both determined the skulls were found in Tikal. "My life changed dramatically after acquiring the skulls,' states Jane. Somehow the crystal skulls acted as a catalyst in developing her clairvoyant and mediumistic abilities. These newly opened abilities led her into doing psychic consultations and ghost investigations at first against her will. Research with sensitives have revealed fascinating data about the skulls "past lives" and their symbol and role to humanity today. A subsequent ufo experience now has full meaning to Jane. There have been some unusual experiences surrounding the skulls as well as some unusual healings. Three men who held the skulls released energy from the skulls which created more clarity in the crystal. In March 1996 Jane visited the White Buffalo in Janesville, Wisconsin with her crystal skulls. The birth of a white buffalo fulfilled an ancient Lakota Sioux Indian prophecy. A mystical experience with her skulls in the presence of the white buffalo convinced Jane that the skulls and the white buffalo indicate a positive transformation for humanity.
