Overview

An exploration of the scientific, historical, and paranormal qualities of quartz crystals and ancient crystal skulls

• Explores the use of crystals throughout history, including their role in Atlantis and in alien technology

• Offers step-by-step instructions to successfully use crystals in scrying, meditation, and Enochian magic

• Includes never-before-published scientific findings on the author’s crystal skull as well as other crystal skulls researched at the British Museum

• Explains how the Space-Time Crystal Matrix connects the physical world with the spiritual and may be the communication technology of the future

Known for his in-depth scientific work on the Shroud of Turin and the Great Pyramid of Giza, John DeSalvo, Ph.D., now sets his sights on quartz crystals and their mystical counterpart, crystal skulls. Exploring the use of crystals from Mesopotamia and ancient Egypt to present-day technology, including their use in ritual and ceremonial magic and their importance in ancient religious literature, he examines the many physical and chemical properties of quartz crystals and explains how their crystalline lattice structure is the key to their amazing abilities, both scientific and paranormal. Reviewing the many paranormal claims about crystal skulls, DeSalvo reveals the scientific findings on his own ancient crystal skull as well as research by the British Museum on other famous crystal skulls. His investigation also extends to the recent discovery in Tibet of a trove of Dropa discs--grooved stones allegedly recording an ancient alien visit to Earth.

Highlighting the use of quartz crystals and crystal skulls for psychic and spiritual purposes, DeSalvo offers step-by-step instructions for their use in scrying, meditation, and Enochian magic, including communication with angels. Reviewing accounts of power crystals in Atlantis and their use in alien technology, he explains how crystals connect the physical world with the spiritual via a powerful communication network linking all crystals and their memories--the Space-Time Crystal Matrix, a spiritual technology lost to the ages but which may become the communication system of the future.

John DeSalvo holds a Ph.D. in biophysics and, for more than 30 years, scientifically studied the Shroud of Turin. A former college professor and current director of the Great Pyramid of Giza Research Association, he is the author of many books, including The Lost Art of Enochian Magic. He hosts a radio show called Mysterious Realms and is a frequent guest on Coast to Coast AM radio and other shows. He lives in Plymouth, Minnesota.

Editorial Reviews

Marc Star
Power Crystals provides a convincing argument for the existence of this Space-Time Crystal Matrix. There is certainly a degree of crystal involvement in the fabric of an expanded reality, and this book richly details this interwoven matrix.”
Deena
“This book is an excellent, balanced introduction to a wide variety of crystals, and their physical and metaphysical properties. The author has interviewed authorities who have had much experience with a variety of crystals, and who share thoughtful, unique first–hand information about their experiences...The emphasis is on presenting a variety of approaches, many photographs and color plates, footnotes, and a bibliography are included. This book is an excellent foundation in learning about quartz crystals because the author has remained grounded in what is verifiable at the same time he presents a variety of practical material that is diverse and interesting.”

“This incredible book may well be DeSalvo’s greatest work as he unravels the mystery behind the incredible power of quartz crystals as well as ancient crystal skulls. This book should not be missed!”

Jessica Elizabeth
Power Crystals is a well written, well researched and simply all around good book about quartz crystals. It is written from the viewpoint of a scientist who does believe in some mysticism. John DeSalvo, Ph.D. gives us a very good and detailed overview of quartz crystals, from their elemental makeup to where they can be found to several theories as to why they are so frequently used in spiritual practices, divination and energy healing...For anyone interested in crystals, I highly recommend this book.”
author of Atlantis and 2012 and Advanced Civilizat Frank Joseph
“The leading sourcebook on the subject. . . . John DeSalvo’s synthesis of psychic intuition tempered by hard science makes for the most enlightening examination of crystals and their energetic relevance.”
host of the Joyce Keller Show and author of Callin Joyce Keller
“This incredible book may well be DeSalvo’s greatest work as he unravels the mystery behind the incredible power of quartz crystals as well as ancient crystal skulls. This book should not be missed!”
author of Invoking the Archangels Sunny Dawn Johnston
“An original and creative contribution to the world of crystals. DeSalvo reveals the magic and power behind quartz crystals and crystal skulls. His practical instructions for using crystals to communicate with angels are invaluable. I recommend this book as a down-to-earth guide to using the energy of the crystals to support the connection of the physical and spiritual worlds.”
August 2012 Magical Buffet
Power Crystals: Spiritual and Magical Practices, Crystal Skulls, and Alien Technology at merely a touch over 200 pages (and that’s including the index!) is an amazingly in depth resource for everything quartz crystal. Upon finishing it, I immediately wanted to start reading certain sections (cough, ahem, crystal skulls, cough, cough) again. It’s a fascinating and entertaining ride designed for both the new age spiritualist and the skeptic.”
author of Alchemy of Nine Dimensions and Awakening Barbara Hand Clow
“Dr. John DeSalvo’s latest book—Power Crystals—is a quantum leap! DeSalvos main hypothesis—The Space-Time Crystal Matrix—is an important scientific contribution in crystal research. John brilliantly integrates quantum physics, string theory, and the use of quartz for communication...John DeSalvo’s discovery of The Space-Time Crystal Matrix is the information we need now in order to recover the lost knowledge of the global maritime civilization—humans that lived in harmony with Nature and enjoyed multi-dimensional communication. We can’t drag our feet for a hundred years as we did after the quantum was discovered. We must access multi-dimensional consciousness right now so that we can find our way back to resonance with Nature.”

Chapter 4
Quartz Crystals in Healing


For decades there have been innumerable books written on the healing properties of quartz crystals and other minerals. They have been very popular, especially with natural healing advocates. Suggestions on how to use or apply crystals for healing have been many and varied. The simplest and most popular method is simply to hold the crystal in your hand while you rest or meditate. Another method is to place the crystal on the afflicted part of the body or to rest it on one of the seven chakras of the human body. There are variations that usually have to do with the physical placement and sometimes the alignment (north, south, east, or west) of the quartz crystal or mineral. Using quartz, some healers have even claimed to be able to heal others at a distance.

I first heard about this when I was in graduate school decades ago, and I shrugged it off and dismissed it. I was a scientist and I believed in hard data. All this stuff about an inert rock healing the body seemed ridiculous and just one more of the so-called New Age techniques that had no basis in fact, and when put to the scientific test would be shown to be invalid. The only problem with my conclusion is that there were many people that claimed to have been healed with crystals. Not only were people claiming that physical healing was taking place, but mental or psychological healing as well. It was hard to dismiss this as imagination because of the number of claims. Well, like any good scientist, I decided to investigate this in my own way: I tried holding different types of materials, which included various common rocks, minerals, gems and, of course, quartz crystals.

I cannot say I was ever physically healed by any of them, but when I meditated with the quartz crystals, I definitely felt a sense of well-being and a greater contentment with myself and others. They also seemed to act as an amplifier for my thoughts and emotions in that I would see some of my faults as they really were, and this gave me the courage to try to amend them. The meditation with the crystals also gave me a clearer perspective of my spiritual being and the spiritual path I was on.

I was studying mathematics at that time and the equations we used included many theoretical dimensions, giving me the idea that maybe crystals were unique in that they existed in many dimensions (some we cannot perceive) and we only see them, by their projection, in our three-dimensional space/time world. If they do indeed extend and are connected with other higher dimensions, this may explain their unusual physical and spiritual properties.

Resonance

To explore this further, let’s first look at resonance. Resonance is defined as the ability or tendency of a system to oscillate or vibrate at a specific frequency. For instance, each string of a guitar vibrates at a different frequency depending on its length. These specific frequencies are known as the resonant frequencies of the system under discussion. It is a transferring of energy between one system and another.

To demonstrate this principle, let’s look at the example of soldiers walking across a bridge. If soldiers march and step and their frequency is the same as the bridge, the bridge will start to vibrate and may collapse. This necessitated what became a practiced procedure of modern warfare: commanding soldiers, when crossing man-made bridges, to walk out of step. If you strike a tuning fork so it vibrates, and then you place a similar tuning fork near it, the first one will start to vibrate at the same frequency as the second. This is due to a transfer or energy between them.

How does this relate to healing with crystals?

In all the cases above, we are talking about physical resonance. But what about the possibility of a spiritual resonance, that is, a physical resonance producing some type of resonance in the spiritual realm and affecting our spiritual body? As an example, assume that the first tuning fork is in the physical realm but the second is in the spiritual. Somehow, the vibrations from the physical affect those of the spiritual. (“As Above, So Below” is a well-known Rosicrucian belief.)

Can spiritual healing affect physical healing? Many people believe that illness first appears in the spiritual body and then manifests to the physical. Let’s look at a theoretical example. We start with a normal healthy person. All of a sudden, there is an abnormality in some region of their spiritual body. Maybe the aura is weak, or dark, or is of a different color in a particular area of the body. Some psychics who can see the aura of a person believe that this might indicate the beginning of a disease process.

Many years ago I wrote a book on the nineteenth-century clairvoyant and prophet Andrew Jackson Davis. He was a medical doctor who claimed he could see auras and diagnosis a person from what he saw contained therein, without any physical examination or tests. The resonance of a crystal placed in the person’s hand or over the afflicted area may have some small resonance that is amplified and communicated to the spiritual body. This helps the aura heal, which in turn then heals the physical body.
