Sherry and Synergy
My name is Sherry Whitfield and I am the Guardian of the ancient crystal skull known as Synergy.
Synergy is what the skull is called but more precisely Synergy is the quality of or the interactive energy that this skull is said to manifest or represent on the earth at this time. Synergy is defined as the cooperative action of two or more independent entities, to bring about a total effect or change which is greater than what either can accomplish alone.In other words 1+1 = 3 or even more. What you and I together can accomplish is potentially so much more than what either of us could do alone.
Synergy is also called the “Skull of Joy and Laughter” or “The Laughing Skull.” It comes from a small tribe in the South Pacific and it's a TWIN. The twin is called Harmony. I'll be writing some things about their history and their tribe in my posts in the future. This time I'll write a bit about my background.
A couple of years ago I facilitated, edited and wrote a blog for an Arizona newspaper. The blog was about issues that impact adults with Hearing Loss. I did it on behalf of a non-profit organization called ALOHA - The Adult Loss Of Hearing Association. I am a member of the Board of Directors and I have a significant hearing loss. I wear powerful hearing aids and I read lips in order to communicate. Aids aren't perfect - they aren't like glasses where they can often correct your eyesight to 20/20. Hearing aids can help, but they won't work in all situations and they only have a range of about 6 feet! After that it's a problem - or you learn to use other kinds of assistive listening devices.
But enough of that for now. Back to my first experience writing a blog.
The newspaper had some pretty tight deadlines and it wasn’t easy to edit and/or write the posts while traveling with Synergy and doing my regular routine and work. I was proud of myself for getting it done. The newspaper stopped doing the blog, eventually, but it was a great experience for me. At the moment I heard it was cancelled I felt that I would use the things that I'd learned to write my own blog in the not too distant future.
I wanted to write a blog about crystal skulls, spirituality and my life as the guardian of Synergy, but I was worried about causing controversy with my viewpoints and experiences, because they seem to be a a little or a lot different than what I am hearing about from some other people working with crystal skulls.
I totally believe that we each have our own experiences and our own journey. With everything in life, each individual experience is unique to that person, and valid for the person having it. Maybe it's only valid for the person who has it.
We all approach spirituality individually. What works for me may not work for you. My thoughts about a subject are colored by my experiences so they might be quite different from someone else's. Didn't seem very fair when I thought about it. I allow others the freedom to express their feelings, experiences, insights, experiences... but censor myself most of the time. I do think there are many situations where it's not polite, appropriate or even kind to express some opinions. But there are many situation where it's fine - or should be.
I was also worried about bringing some of my own private things out into the public eye. Yes, I speak face to face with people about my personal and sometimes very private, experiences wherever I go. What I do is called ‘Talk Story’ and it can get very intimate. But not many people come to events compared to how many people might read a blog. Of course maybe no one will read it, but I’m still going to write it!
You never know how people will react to something that is not the mainstream way of looking at a subject. I can only speak about and write about my own experience. It may be very different from yours. It probably is.
I am asking you to please be tolerant and patient with me.
Please keep in mind that in this blog I mean to provoke thought, not to simply provoke.
I'll share a brief history about myself:
I have a traumatic Brain Injury – a TBI. It happened when I was just over a year old. It was a freak accident – no ones’ fault. And my parents didn’t realize how bad it was. No one did. There were no MRI’s or CAT scans back then. Like one neurologist said a few years back, “you didn’t die, so life went on.” That’s exactly how it was. Life went on. I had some weird health issues and a lot of pain in my head, but I lived. We didn't know how bad it was because I didn't die.
A number of doctors have since told me that I am a walking medical miracle. Evidently my young brain restructured itself and I went on. I don’t know any other way, as this is normal to me. Yes, I had some seizures when I was older and a lot of other strange health issues whch I still deal with at time. These days, at age 62, I’m basically very stable at this time in my life. I deal with brittle bones and hearing loss everyday, and a few other things, but I feel lucky to be alive. Enough about that for now.
I have been what is called ‘clairvoyant’ since early childhood. I was changed quite a bit - or a lot - by the TBI. I had no idea that I was psychic. My expereiences were normal to me and they never stopped. I didn’t outgrow it.
I grew up in a family where “ESP” type experiences were not unusual on both sides of my family. We didn't always talk about it outside of the family, but everyone had their own version of the same kinds of things happening, but I had it more. A lot more.
It was normal for me, and I never thought anything was wrong with it until I went to school and realized that other kids didn’t see their Guides or dead relatives or colors around people. I see the energy around people, places, things… this includes crystals.
As I got to be an older teenager I developed a deep need to understand what was happening to me. This brought me to the doorstep of a psychiatrist, hoping for some concrete answers to my very personal struggle with paranormal experiences. I feared I was mentally ill and told him that. I was just lucky that he’d been introduced to a psychic physician a few months earlier and taken his workshop on clairvoyance. He immediately recognized that I was describing something he’d heard before.
Some people call it a ‘gift’ I never did. Yes, it can be a gift., but more often it was not a gift at all for me. I had to grow up and mature and learn to accept myself before it was much more than something I was ashamed of.
The doctor I turned to was exceptionally interested in, and open to, my experiences and perceptions. I wanted him to help me to get it to all stop but it never did. However, as a result of meeting him and him getting to know me, I spent several years working with and for him and other medical professionals, as a “sensitive” or medical intuitive. I would assist the doctor in gaining what he felt were insights into atypical or difficult medical and psychiatric conditions. There were some very good things about working for him as a 'psychic' and some very bad things.
Over my lifetime, I have collaborated with a number of scientific researchers at the University level. These were individuals who were working to understand subtle energies and states of consciousness. But that’s another story.
I was 18 when I went to the psychiatrist to beg him to make the experiences stop. I am 62 now. Over the last four decades I have continued to explore what I sometimes call the untapped potential of the human spirit. At times I work with medical professionals, therapists, writers, scientific researchers, engineers and other interested professionals. I am proud to say that my lucid dreaming workshop has been highly recommended by a respected research scientist for its easy, yet highly effective techniques.
With all of this strange stuff happening in my life, you might think I was a natural to work with really strange crystal skulls. But no; I was not interested in them or attracted to them. I had run into a few in my life, but that is a different story. I wasn't interested because I was too busy trying to survive and to have a life that was ‘normal’ and less dramatic with all of the psychic stuff. A crystal skull sure didn't seem like something that would bring me inner peace and less drama.
At an early age I’d learned about the idea of living my life on a ‘Middle Path.’ This meant it was a life path of Balance and Self-Responsibility. I wanted and needed this for myself. A place of internal peace. Not a religion, but a spiritual self discipline that laid a foundation for my life. I wanted spiritual growth versus more psychic abilities. Many of the psychic people I met, including most of my family, sadly, had some major integrity issues. I didn’t want to be like them. I wanted another way. I think and hope that I found it. Maybe I will share something about that in a future post or two.
Anymore, I don't think it was a coincidence that Synergy came to me.
Face to Face there is a lot you can tell about a person. Online, we rely on their writing skill. Some misunderstanding could occur. I hope not. I’ll try to be clear, but you never know. I have a background in writing, but it's writing for small newspapers and newsletters and writing many workbooks for my workshops. My style might not be as interesting as someone who is good at writing made up stories. I can sit and tell stories to groups about things that have happened to me all day long – and that’s what I often do when I travel with Synergy. I engage people in the reality of a world they may not yet have experienced and encourage them to find out for themselves. But, for me, speaking about things that have happened is not the same as writing about them. We are going to have to see how it goes.
I started to write this blog because I wanted to share a few things. Things I've learned working with Crystal Skulls - both an ancient one and contemporary ones. Things about being a Lucid Dreamer, having a Guide that I can see and talk to easily... and teaching workshops about spirituality for about 35 years. Plus a bunch of other weird stuff. I think I have some unique perspectives - and sometimes things that I write about here just might turn out to be a validation of what someone else has also experienced.
Until next time....

Psychic phenomena has its place in your spiritual growth. Just be aware that, in and of itself, phenomena will not bring you happiness or peace and it will never truly lead you to God. Beyond the lower planes that make up this physical existence are the Higher planes - the 'God Planes' where the only 'thing' that is real and permanent is Love. Angels are messengers. The most important message they bring to humanity is one of total love and acceptance. Developing a greater ability to give and receive love will bring you joy and bring you closer to God.
NO JOY... NO GAIN!
