Maya was discovered in Mexico near ancient ruins. Jane acquired the skull in a store in Cunevaque, Mexico. Through psychic research with the help of a Guatamalan shaman, it was determined that Maya is from Tikal, Mexico. Maya 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.
Maya's eye sockets are dull and unpolished which may indicate there were other crystals 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 whose perfect handles could 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 fact, 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 the Magician 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 eighth 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. Sensitives have described Maya as having gentle energy that transforms. "Maya made me joyous, happy and light" commented one researcher. Maya has also been known to have fertility powers and the ability to help men with erectile dysfunction.
