CRYSTALS: Online Class

QUESTION: Dear Sheila, Im an avid crystal learner and have done my masters in Reiki...Off late I realised that healing comes naturally to me but need directions. On my own I have mastered the art of communicating with my pendulum (name PRISTINE) on a regular basis and seek guidance from the universal force on events connected to my life...After having googled and with the help of some books, I use crystals for healing and creating grids which have done wonders so far.

Im very very keen to do the online certification course with your organisation and will request you to guide me on the same.

Look forward to hearing from you.

ANSWER: Hi, at this time we do not offer any online certification courses other than Hypnotherapy through my mother, Ann Satin's organization, California Hypnosis Institute. I would suggest emailing her directly to see if she will have any crystal certifications online: Her email is

We do offer regularly scheduled classes at our location here in San Francisco, otherwise we do also travel and teach with a minimum of 6 prepaid students in your area.

Sincerely, Sheila Satin

QUESTION: Hi Sheila,I have all of my Crystals in my Bedroom. This is the only place that I can keep them. Is this advisable. I have a very large collection. and wonder if the amount of energy from them is okay.

ANSWER: Thanks for your email. Sounds like you live in a crystal cave; how wonderful! You don't have to worry about the energies of the crystals themselves, they will cohabitate just fine. Its yourself that you may need to be concerned about. However, if you feel comfortable, at ease and happy surrounded by all of your crystals, you have nothing to worry about!! We know many people who have all sorts of crystals in their homes and enjoy retreating into this wonderful energy vortex away from the hectic chaos of everyday life! The only thing I would recommend is keeping them clean, energetically and physically!

If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to email me at

CRYSTALS: Parasites

QUESTION: Hi Sheila,Would you check on what would be an ideal gemstone to help clear parasites and infection. This is for a friend of mine who's husband has been dealing with parasites and lung infection of a long time now. He is currently out of the hospital and at home. She is an amazing healer in her own right, however, she's at a loss. Our healing Circle sends her husband distance healing as he's too volatile to be around direclty. He is easily aggitated. She has determined that he has parasites in his brain. Any healing thoughts and energy you could send her way would be appreciated as well.
ANSWER: I would definitely go with green Serpentine. This stone is specifically for detoxifying the body of parasites. If you are dealing with the brain, I would pair Serpentine with Quartz, a great stone for mental balance and enhanciing other crystals. Please let me know if you need help finding either of these. Sending positive thoughts your way.

CRYSTALS: Rhodonite

"plump rhodonite" - wire wrapped pendant.

Rhodonite helps to develop self-less love. This always begins with the self and then will spread to self-less to include all...



From a reader: Just a note on this from my own personal pets. I have a punch bowl full of gems and crystals on my headboard. My 3 cats always lay on my bed about 3 feet from all the stones. When they all lay on my bed with the stones it's like they are all meditating!!!

Response: Thanks for sharing! Our cats all love crystals as well. My mom's cat Princess used to love to be in the center of all her healing circles when she was still on this earth!

CRYSTALS: Barn Animals

QUESTION: I want to hang crystals in the barns and above stalls of the animals. The question is how far does the crystal extend its energy? How many should be used and last does the size matter? I have been wanting to ask for a long time these questions. Thank you and many blessings always, Ps your store is lovely!

ANSWER: Hello, thank you for your question. The energy will extend its scope relative to the size of the stone. So say a small tumbled stone about 1" would be able to fill your physical body, a large cluster about 10" would be able to fill a small room. If you have pointed crystals, those would directly energy in certain areas. If you have spheres, they would let out energy in all directions equally. You may want to consider placing large crystals in the corner of the barns on some shelves as well as hanging because hanging stones would have to be smaller. I would also suggest hanging points if you want to direct to particular stalls. Let me know if this helps and how it goes. We send out best energy for all of your beloved animals.
