My Meeting with Max…#ArchiveDay

“There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.” ~ William Shakespeare

I have to begin with the above quote from Hamlet, as I know I will be pushing the envelope with this post.

As some of you may remember, I have been studying and practicing Reconnective Healing, based upon “The Reconnection” by Dr. Eric Pearl. A dear friend of mine, who introduced me to the concepts of Reiki and The Reconnection, had two tickets to “meet” Max, the Crystal Skull, when he was in Los Angeles.

We took our mini road trip together. I had no idea what to expect. I had done some research before the day arrived, of course. (Once a nerd, always a nerd!) I understood the Max was owned by an individual, instead of a museum; that he was reputed to be thousands of years old; that he is made from large pieces of crystal; and that no one seems to know how he, or any of the other crystal skulls, came to be.

None of this prepared me for the experience of seeing Max for the first time…


We had about half an hour to spend with Max, in meditation (which I hadn’t really gotten the hang of yet), or contemplation. We could “charge” our precious and semi-precious stones. The entire experience was hands-on. The only solid rule was that we could not pick him up.

As you can see from the photo, he almost seems to be smiling. I tried to show how the crystal seems almost forged, for lack of a better term, into this perfect shape:


Even though I did not feel confident about meditating, I did end up resting my forehead against Max’s forehead. Although vastly different from the energy involved in reconnective healing, Max does carry a gently kind of energy. It’s palpable when you touch him, just a gentle frequency that I could feel through my hands and my blood.

I’m really not sure if that makes sense, or if it seems entirely alienating to my more traditional readers. I was raised as a Catholic, by a beautifully open-minded mother (who really didn’t follow traditional Church dictates) and a Protestant father. Needless to say, my belief system perceives far more as being in line with God than most Churches would find…acceptable.

Still, I found it to be an amazing experience, and one I would highly recommend.

Blessings to you all on this beautiful Sunday…
