Skulls often illicit a range of reactions in people – many are captivated by their uniqueness and beauty while others may be more hesitant to work with them due to the natural association of their shape with the macabre. However, skull carvings carry not only the energy of the crystal from which they are carved, but they also bring with them the encoded, ancient knowledge of our ancestors and civilizations from millennia before. Utilize these beautiful skulls in meditation, place them in your energy field, or keep them on an altar. By working with them specifically on an ancestral altar, not only do you honor the dead but you are reminded that your ancestors walk with you as you are a literal expression of their DNA. With that knowledge you can allow yourselves to sink deeper into your relationship with the body, and be more present in your physical self. As an embodiment of the third eye and crown chakras, skulls enable you to open up to the divine and psychic connection with ancestors and guides, tapping into their frequencies of healing and protection, and helping you to receive the messages meant for you in your life. May their knowledge be reborn in you and allow you to tune in more deeply to personal and universal truths and expand your relationship with those who came before.
