TESTIMONIAL: Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy Testimonial by Lisa Satin,
I took Hypnotherapy Level 1 in 2003. My Father Dr. Sunny Satin who was a world teacher held the course in Delhi, India. I was doing volunteer work in Thailand at the time, and decided to fly to India for the course. Here, I met my sister Sheila who had flown from the USA, and many other eagerly awaiting students. We had a blend of people in the classroom, including locals, travelers, housewives, medical doctors, business people, energy healers and more.

Within the first few hours, we were learning about the Theory of the Mind. It blew me away!
I have always had a strong ego throughout this life. With a quick wit and a relatively fast ability to rationalize, I could not always understand the thought processes and actions of others. Why could they not see and do things my way? Isn’t the answer always obvious? My way is the best way. Although I knew conceptually that each human being is equal, I could not help the sense of superiority I often felt.

As my Father built the model of the Human mind piece by piece on the board, everything began to make sense. Good, Bad, Positive, Negative, Experiences, Memories, Fears… even Past Lives. That day, he opened the door to a whole new world of thinking, and more importantly… a way of understanding myself and the people around me. I understood that we are all different, including the workings of our minds.

As the revelation was taking full effect, we turned our attention to the Theory of Suggestibility. Learning about human suggestibility not only opened the doors of understanding even wider, it blasted that door off its hinges!

I had always struggled socially as a young child because I was the shyest kid in the class. Why couldn’t I be like the popular kids who said and did what they wanted, without thinking first? And why is it that even through adulthood we are all so different? Some women can parade around in halter tops, exposing their midriffs, while others insist on covering up. Some men are the center of any party, while others cower from the spotlight. Why?

The Theory of Suggestibility had all the answers! An actual light bulb flickered bright in my mind, and I could see the whole classroom of students light up with new awareness. I now had a greater appreciation for each type of human personality, and I could see how it all made perfect sense.

Finally, it was time to put Theory into action! We paired up and began to hypnotize each other with the new techniques we had just learned. I was amazed to see how easy it is to hypnotize others! This was a gateway to accessing their subconscious…where knowledge, power, and information is unparalleled.

As the class came to a close, I realized I had been given powerful information and skills that had been kept secret for ages. I took these techniques and began to practice on friends and peers in Thailand, happily anticipating Hypnotherapy 2…

By August 22nd, 2004 I had become a Clinically Certified Hypnotherapist. Thereafter, I registered with the Indian Board of Alternative Medicines and completed all qualifications to become a Doctor of Hypnotherapy. Yes, I am Doctor Lisa Satin, but you can call me Lisa!
Six years have passed since my first Hypnotherapy training. I have helped hundreds of people in different countries with the information I have learned, and continue to do so each day.

I am now thrilled to share this with you! I will be teaching the Hypnotherapy Level 1 Certification Course at Satin Crystals on the weekend of December 5th and 6th. If you have even a slight interest in pursuing new knowledge that can help people everywhere, including yourself, I urge you to join us!

The Course fee is $335. Don’t let money get in your way, because this investment will not only come back to you as spiritual development, but as financial flow. I now charge $150/hour for Hypnotherapy sessions. My uncle Yogesh in India, who also took the courses from my Father, sees numerous clients a day. This is true for many of our students, who have now become full time healers and teachers themselves. One of the most important messages we learn is that with the Power of the Mind, which is the ultimate power, you can achieve anything you wish for. I stand behind this statement, because I know it to be true.

EVENT: Jewelry Classes

I just taught my Intro to Jewelry Class yesterday and already looking forward to the next one on January 30th. Here is an interesting article...

11 Reasons to Take a Jewelry Class
by Beading Daily

1: Conserve materials
Seems obvious, but I probably wasted a mile of metal in my early forays with wire. If only I had taken a class and seen early on how to, for instance, use wire from the spool to be more economical.

2: Learn safely about safety
If you’re a beginner, absolutely take classes in anything with flame, heat, toxic fumes or corrosive substances. Lampworking is an obvious example, with open flame and potentially explosive consequences. But using a hammer, drill, or dremel poses hazards, too—especially if you’re sitting there thinking, what’s a dremel?
A Bead Fest student has fun in a safely supervised lampworked-glass class.

3: Know the must-have tools
I am oddly attracted to specialty pliers with alien noses and funky-colored handles. And while a tool for bending a “V” in metal is something useful for people who do that a lot, I was taught to achieve this effect with tools I already owned, for the few times I want to do that.
Step by Step Wire Jewelry Editor-in-Chief and Bead Fest teacher Denise Peck brings shopping karma to our Bead Fest director, Karen Keegan.

4: Discover which tools do what
In the same light, if I was making a lot of V shapes, that tool would make sense. And, without the insight of a teacher, I wouldn’t have even known that tool existed.
I’m sure a teacher could tell me what the heck these pliers are!

5: Observe efficiency
Watch a teacher at work. Pay attention to their economy of movement, how they place things at hand in their work space and their sequence of production. Good teachers are usually as productive as they are creative. They can show you ways to be faster as well as better at the technique.
Bead Fest teacher Janice Berkebile shows how to keep your work space organized.

6: Add expert tricks and tips to your repertoire
How often have you seen something demonstrated and said, “Gee, I never thought to do it like that.” Exactly.
Bead Fest teacher and vendor Lisa Niven Kelly shows a student her technique for stamping in metal.

7: Learn about your medium
For instance, I didn’t know until I took a class that I could melt away an entire piece of silver wire trying to fuse it into a ring. The teacher showed me exactly how to position the torch.
Take a class for any kind of work with a torch so you don’t burn up your art. Believe me, I'm talking from experience.

8: Watch a technique in action
Some techniques are just plain difficult to explain in words or illustrations. I only learned Viking knit by watching it demonstrated by a skilled teacher.
Viking knit is easier to learn when you see it done in person. I didn't know which end was up, down, around, or through until I watched Denise Peck actually doing it.

9: Discover new resources
Teachers have their favorite sources and favorite brands for a reason. Expand your own sources for tools and materials from your mentors; consider their tried and true recommendations.

10: Be inspired
Most teachers would love to be spending more time in their studio, so we’re grateful for their generosity in sharing their time and expertise. Teaching is a special calling. Take advantage of being up close to the technique and material in your teacher’s work. Ask questions. Let that visual stimulation encourage you! Above all, show respect and don’t reproduce their designs for your own gain.

11. Make new friends and network
Enjoy the company of others of a like mind. Taking a class is fun. Meet people from many backgrounds with many diverse styles and skills. Share stories of juggling family, jobs, and jewelry. Hear why others are so passionate, and what other art forms lead them here. You’ll learn as much from your fellow students as from the teachers! Plus, you may find yourself with dinner companions!

CRYSTALS: Broken Heart

QUESTION: ...(regarding breakup)...I am going to see a tarot lady tomorrow...what is your view on that? And from a natural point of view what can I do? I know I sound pathetic and I don't recognise myself in writing this...but for the second time in my life (first time I was 15) I am completly heartborken :(

ANSWER: Hi, ignoring him is DEFINITELY the best and only option if you want to cut ties with him otherwise all those old feelings will still be lingering around and you wont' be able to get over it. It is easier to be independent and focus on yourself at this time.

As for my views of tarot and psychics, I think they can definitely give you a glimpse into where you are in your life now, but they don't take into account free will which changes your "life plan" with every decision you make. So, in the beginning we all are born into life with a sort of life plan, but we don't always follow it, it's just a guideline. I have only done tarot cards once and it was just telling me what's going on now, not really what I should be doing about it or whatnot, so it wasn't that useful to me. It is still itneresting though!

As for a natural point of view, I'd recommend that you keep reminding yourself of the BIG PICTURE. All these small stresses in life are simply lessons to make us better, even though it's naturally hard in the moment. Allow yourself to feel all the emotions you are feeling, do not feel guilty about them! They are all part of the process. But know that you are not in a depressing hole, it's all a cycle, like life and death...everything comes and goes and all we can do is go with the flow.

If you would like me to recommend some stones, I would suggest Rhodochrosite with Malachite, I get the feeling these two will be good specifically for you as they are dealing with releasing emotional traumas, strengthening the heart and allowing you to be strong in your self.

Please do keep in touch and let me know how you are doing or if you need any support, I am here for you.

CRYSTALS: Double Terminator

The latest "I Dig Crystals" creation features a Double Terminator Rose Quartz crystal. Double Terminators are great for receiving and transmitting the crystal's energies, in this case love energy to open and balance the heart chakra!


CRYSTALS: Black Magic

QUESTION: Hi,I have receive the paypal invoice n looks good. Just give me few days as some one hv charm (black magic) me so I'm feeling very weak n sick. Now I'm trying to solve this. Is there any crystal for removing this kind of things?

ANSWER: Dear friend, yes, there are several crystals that can help you in this situation. First of all, you can seal your aura so that you no longer feel weak and sick. Sealing the aura allows you to fill the holes where your energy is leaking away from you. Sealing the aura is best done with SELENITE. After, you can enhance the energy of the aura with clear QUARTZ.
If you want to protect from further black magic/evil eye/psychic attacks, I suggest you have THIRD EYE AGATE (as pictured) with you. You can also have CARNELIAN which is very good to protect against psychic attacks. A lot of people like to use JET for protection. You can even have GARNET with you which is very powerful in fighting evil/dark energies - said sometimes to even smoke at the presence of darker energies in extreme cases.
We are sending you healing thoughts, and mixed with your own positive energies, I know you will be better in no time!

SHOP: Positive Souls

Reply Regarding a vendor who was insulted at her craft booth...

I know how you feel, we have a shop in San Francisco and there are sooooo many people who come through every day, online, in the store and to our classes. We attract mostly positive people due to the healing nature of our products, but once in a while we'll get the troublemakers who really drain you and get you discouraged.

I have to remind myself that there is no need to focus on their negative energy. There are so many positive, loving souls who come to us, we should concentrate on their energies instead, therefore attracting these like-minded souls in the future.

You are blessed,
Sheila Satin :)

SESSION: Spirit Release

QUESTION: Hi Lisa and Sheila! I would like to ask you gals, what kind of a healer would be able to help rid someone of inner demons or bad spirits or whatever you want to call bad stuff inside of one's self that one would feel is an outside force trying to bring one down? Do you like my proper English there? Haha. I figured you would be the ones to know.

ANSWER: Hi, You will definitely want a Spirit Release session. This occurs through hypnotherapy. Spirits or fragments are often found in many clients these days, even if they do not know it, and spirit release is the best way to remove them from your aura and free your life. Lisa conducts these sessions and can better answer any questions for you regarding details! Call her at the store today or email her at

QUESTION: Hi, I created quite a large list of people according to their numerological number.You can see the list here:
I'm afraid that I'm not too familiar with numerology, beside the very you find these list useful? Are there other improvements you suggest that I'll add?
Thanks,What Was Done

ANSWER: That is quite a directory you have there! I would add what the Numerological numbers mean so viewers will have a better idea of how all of those people tie together numerologically. You can find this information online or in a Numerology book!

Numbers definitely influence our lives, but in the end our free will can lead us down a different path!

MIRACLE: Old Friends

a note from a friend I haven't seen in many years...

Hi Sheila, long time, no see... I hope you are doing well!

Do you remember us? Currently, we are back in Boston for some work, and last weekend we went for a short trip to San Fransisco. We lived in Nob Hill, and several times we walked along Polk Street. On Sunday, before going back to Boston, we decided to eat at a Thai Restaurant on Polk Street, and we took a bus all the way from North Beach just to have lunch there. On the way to the restaurant I noticed a sign saying "Satin Crystals", and I wondered "hmmm.... that sounds like the internet shop, Sheila had".

I looked into the shop and I saw someone who looked like you, but after a while, my wife and I agreed that it wasnt you. We were just about to leave, but then I thought I would just have a quick look inside and speak with the woman there.... and it turned out to be your sister!!! I was so amazed!! I simply couldnt believe that I had just randomly run into your shop!!! That is a real miracle!!

It was a pity you were not there, but I hope you are doing well in San Fransisco, and it looked like things were going well with the shop.

I hope you will be there, next time a miracle happens:-)

All the best wishes.


CRYSTALS:Dendritic Chalcedony

QUESTION: Hey there! Do you have some of this stone in your store? I would like to get some.
I just got a blue chalcedony necklace from a friend, so I looked the stone/crystal up and the dendritic one would be greatfor my friend. Thanks!

ANSWER: Hi, thanks for your question. Yes, we do have dendritic Chalcedony at the store. Only a few slabs left at this time. This is a beautiful and wondrous stone with its plant-like inclusions! It is often erroneously called "Plume Agate", "Dendritic Jasper" or other such names, but in reality Chalcedony is the umbrella term for all these stones.

Chalcedony: When it is concentrically banded (often in rather wild patterns) it is called by the subvariety name Agate. When it is in flat layers/bands it is called by the subvariety name Onyx. [Note: Many non-banded forms of chalcedony - such as Moss agate - are often erroneously called 'agates'. True agate is concentrically banded. Mottled and included chalcedonies are more properly called simply 'chalcedony.' Petrified wood (agatized wood) is the name given to fossil wood where the replacement of the wood is by chalcedony, but the banding in this case is due to the wood structure - not concentric deposition of the chalcedony - and the material is chalcedony, not true agate.] - from

Please email, call or come into the store to obtain your Dendritic Chalcedony!

REIKI: Attunements

QUESTION: Hi, Lisa! I have a few questions about Reiki attunements offered by Satin Crystals. I saw on craigslist that you offer attunements and classes on specific dates. Will there be a class/attunement offered sometime during the winter season? I am busy with school and would love to attend an attunement session during my winter break which will be sometime near Christmas. My second question is, if you are attuned to level 1 reiki already, do I have to attend the Reiki 1 class or can I just jump to reiki level 2?
Thanks so much for your time.

ANSWER: Hello - Thank you for contacting us! We are actually offering Reiki 2 today. We will not be offering any attunement near Christmas, as we will be closed during the Holidays.

We will be offering Reiki 1 again on February 6th, 2010 and Reiki 2 is expected to be offered in the spring 2010, date TBD. If you are already attuned in level 1, you are welcome to join our next Reiki 2 class.

Meanwhile we have a lot of other great classes, which you can find & print out at

Join our mailing list so we can keep you informed.

Hope to meet you soon,

CRYSTALS: Obsidian

QUESTION: Peace & Blessings, I stumbled upon your Youtube page while looking for a decent "open chakra" video and really digged your chakra therapy cleansing technique. This of course lead me to your website and then I decided to email you. =) Heeeyah.. wusup Sheila Satin crystal balla!! lol jk Anywayzzz, I am interest in purchasing an Osidian Crystal similar to the one you used in that video for my recording studio. I may actually need a couple. lol So I was wondering do you have any that size and what is your price?

Also do you ever give seminars in New York?

When I saw your video I kept thinking to myself, "where do I meet someone like this". I am single, vegetarian, consider myself to be very positive and spiritual, love to meditate, have a degree in Media Communications, love to help ppl and try do humane things, etc. BUT!!! I am in the music business which I love (pop urban & hiphop) and most of the people I meet or work with are so not down with this! For example, some associates of mine have an incredible time joking about the organic foods i eat and most of them don't have a clue about meditation or crystals. REal TalK!! lol

Anywho, I guess I need your crystal theorpy class. Lmbo =)

I hope to hear back from you soon. tc God Bless.

ANSWER: Hello, thanks for your email.

We do have many pieces of Obsidian in our store as it's a very popular seller! We have tumbled stones for $1 each, smaller slabs that range from $10-20 depending on the quality of their rainbows, flat hearts that are $20/each, Larger chunks that are around $150, towers around $120-150, pyramids around $50, spheres that range from $15-$2012 depending on the size (you can imagine that the highest end of that spectrum is a huge bowling ball size sphere!). You can see some of the Obsidian: Click here, but a lot of the pieces are not online yet, so if you tell me what size and price range you are looking for, we can send you some pictures!

We do not have any regular classes held in New York at this time, but we do have a full schedule of classes, meditations and events in our San Francisco location. However, we do travel on request if there are at least 6 students interested in learning a particular subject.

It's great that you have a balance of physical and spiritual in your life. If you want to get more into the spiritual side of things, I would suggest joining one of your local metaphysical groups or yoga/meditation centers in your area to connect with like minded people. Let us know about the Obsidian. We also have pendants, bracelets and can custom design jewelry.

Sincerely, Sheila Satin
