Pay attention to your walk. Are you stepping in the very center of your soles? Are your shoes grinding down on the payment evenly? The way you walk tells you a great deal about your state of balance, physically and energetically!

If you find yourself a bit off balance, leaning a bit too much to the right, grinding the outer edges of your are in need of some balancing crystals!

QUESTION: Hello, I find your products interesting. I have a question about the following product: Citrine Pyramid
Why do some pictures of the same product show it as a bright bright yellow and others barely yellow with a lot of white?

QUESTION: When lying with crystals on pancreas, is okay to watch TV, or read?

Also, I have a large rose quartz on the floor beside the TV. Is this a problem either because of emanations or the TV programs?

Once again, thank you.

ANSWER: Hello, thank you again for your email. When lying with crystals, it is okay to be engaged in other activities as long as you have programmed your intention for the crystal to be activated for your healing purposes. However, focusing on the crystal and doing visualization is much more powerful in the healing process. Both methods can have their advantage.

Many people place large Rose Quartz in a home to help to calm the energies in a room, especially if there are noisy neighbors or a stressful environment. Placing Quartz by sources of radiation, like the TV can be helpful in protecting yourself from harmful energies, so it is definitely a beneficial location for your Rose Quartz.

CRYSTALS: Guidance

My friend has been diagnosed with Stage 2 breast cancer, and will be undergoing a mastectomy this week. She'll have all the medicine she needs, however, I would like to find out about some recommendations for crystals I may purchase which focus on the healing of the body.

Just wanted to check to make sure you are open tomorrow at 12? I assume someone would be able to provide a little guidance for some things I may purchase for her?
Thank you for your help.

BOOK: The Secret

What Is The Secret

I am listening to the audiobook of the Secret again because no matter that we KNOW everything, we always need to be reminded to be our most powerful!


CRYSTALS: Self Cleanse

QUESTION: Where and how can I learn to self cleanse myself. I don't see any healing crystal services in my area. I would appreciate your advice.

ANSWER: Thank you for your question. If you live in an area where energy healers are not readily available, you can work with the crystals on yourself. As demonstrated by our friend above, you can do a crystal healing layout with flat crystals. In this case she is using crystals that correspond to the chakras to open and balance the energy blockages of the chakras.

If you have a crystal wand, you can scan it over your aura (your energy body), sweeping your aura as if you would for another person. The most effective way to clean your own energy body is to hold and meditate or visualize with your crystals in your hand - smooth spheres and eggs are great for this purpose!

After your self-healing sessions you will want to carry the smaller tumbled stones or wear crystal jewelry with you as a reminder of your focus throughout the day.

You can find a lot of information if you visit our website at and click on the "CRYSTAL FAQ's" tab at the top of the page. You will also find videos on how to use the crystlas.

If you have any specific questions, please email us again! There is a lot to learn!

CRYSTALS: Depression

QUESTION: I sleep little, eat little, very sad most of the time. What do you do for the sadness, the loneliness?

ANSWER: Hi, thanks for your question. You need to replace those feelings of loss with love. Self-love energy is brought to your aura with stones like Rose Quartz or Rhodonite. Apache Tear Obsidians may also help you deal with the "mourning". When my father passed on from this world, my family held on to Apache Tear obsidian stones.

Program these crystals for filling your heart with positive energy.

Realize that this is a lesson you have come to Earth to learn, and once you get through it, you will be stronger.

Even the act of being proactive will start to get you out of your rut, inch by inch.

Another option you may want to consider is going in to see a crystal healer. They can really open up your blockages. I have seen many clients who come in for depression and find that all of their chakras are at a standstill. Working with the crystals can really get the energies to flow again.

CRYSTALS: Healing Session

Living in our hectic lives, we need constant energy cleansings. Crystal Healing Therapy sessions can unblock the energies that have stagnated as a result of whatever situations you are facing. I recommend chakra and aura cleansing at least once a month. Whether you are working on yourself or seeing a healer, the ultimate goal of these healings is for you to be balanced enough to face any situation and come out unaffected!

CRYSTALS: Charoite

Charoite is often called a 'stone of transformation' as well as a stone of power. In particular it transforms negative emotions such as anger and fear into positive feelings. As a part of the transformation process it allows release of those negative emotions, so one can change and move forward. It is a stone of creativity, bringing spiritual growth and possibility. Helps release one from victimization, and enhances courage. It is used in spiritual work for entity release, rescue work, and prophesy.

QUESTION: Hi, I am beginning a gemstone/chakra medicine class in SF this weekend that requires me to have charoite. I see that you have the CHAROITE SLAB 5" Purple Superman Spiritual Crystal 01 listed on the website and just wanted to ensure that you have the stone available. If so, I would like to come pick it up on Saturday morning. I don't live in the city and drove in from Santa Rosa this past Saturday only to find a sign on the door saying closed for the weekend. I prefer to see/feel the stones over ordering them online. There are other stones that I need for later on in the class that I am interested in seeing, but this one I need for Saturday. Can you please confirm that you have the stone in stock. Thanks.

ANSWER: Hello, thanks for your email. We do have this 5"slab available as of now and it is the only piece if chariot currently in stock. We are open regular hours now Tuesday to Saturday 12-6pm.

p.s. We are also open by appointment for buyers and healing sessions.

CRYSTALS: Independence

QUESTION: I just got out of a long term relationship and I am feeling lost. Can crystals help me?

Hi, crystals can definitely aid you in finding yourself again. You need to fill those voids that your breakup has left you. Positive crystal energy is great. You can place the crystals over your chakras, wear them or hold them when needed. You will regain your individuality and who you were as a person before the relationship and who you are now. Often times we lose ourselves to co-dependencies in relationships and that's how we become soooo off-balance when the relationship ends. Re-train your mind and your thoughts to thinking in "I"...if your mind wanders to feeling sorry for yourself, tell it a positive affirmation instead. I am strong, I am free, I am...whatever words make you feel comfortable. It is similar to training our minds to think positively, to get out of negative, self-defeating thoughts and becoming an optimistic person.

Yellow and orange crystals bring personal strength - like Citrine, Tigers Eye, Carnelian and Golden Calcite. Use these at the Solar Plexus (right above your navel).

Sheila Satin


CRYSTALS: Meditation

QUESTION: I am having a really hard time sitting for meditation.

That's okay, meditation doesn't have to be about sitting still. Personally, I can't meditate that way either.

Meditation is anything that allows your mind to be in the moment - so whatever your hobbies are or anything healthy that you enjoy doing - walking, working out, dancing, yoga, lying down, daydreaming. For me, making jewelry with crystals is a form of meditation.

Even if you can't sit still for meditation, crystals can help your mind to focus on your objective. Some crystals that are useful for meditation are Amethyst, Lapis, Moonstone and Howlite. Of course any healing crystal can be used to program for meditation!

You may also want to try Group Meditation. We have a weekly Crystal Healing Manifestation Group meditation at Satin Crystals which is guided, so that your mind has someone calming voice to follow. If you can't make it to meditations with us, we also sell CD's of the session, just inquire!

CRYSTALS: Pink Clusters

QUESTION: Hi there, I found your stilbite crystal cluster for sale on your website. Do you have any other pink-coloured crystal clusters, perhaps 7-8" large? Thank you!

ANSWER: Hello, thanks for your email. Yes, we do have other pink colored clusters in your size range, including the beautiful Sphalerite stone:

The Stilbite at 7"

At a little larger size, you may want to consider the very unique heart-like pair of Pink Spirit Quartz

Please do check back often as we put up new crystals every week and they are mostly one-of-kind, so there's always a fresh stock!

For full event schedule, check our "CLASSES" tab on


ADVICE: Monitor Thoughts

Re-train your mind and your thoughts to thinking in positive terms to get out of negative, self-defeating mindset and becoming an optimistic person. You just have to face each thought you are having, monitor yourself even for one hour and change those thoughts around to something empowering. Thoughts that make you feel good about yourself. Don't scold yourself if you let some thoughts slip, take it as a lesson and move on...After years of programming, your thoughts are not going to change overnight! Give yourself time, encourage yourself and pride yourself on the thoughts that you DO transmute to positive!

Give yourself one hour and see how it goes - START NOW and tell me how it goes!



QUESTION: Hi Sheila, I need a power and awesome crystal, to attract tons of good business and good money....( or perhaps winning the Lotto ) is anything in your arsenal, who can help me? even a small pebble!!?

ANSWER: Hi! There are definitely many crystals that are connected to the energy of cash flow, wealth and prosperity in this universe. In fact I just packaged a Citrine ball for a customer who has found great business success meditating with his Citrine pyramid. Citrine is a very popular crystal, as it is aligned with the energy of cash flow - meaning money coming in but you also must give it for it to return to you!

You can also try Aventurine, which is the crystal for abundance. Whatever kind of abundance you are seeking, you can call in by visualizing with your Aventurine - health, wealth, friends, etc...

You may want to check out my past posts on money multiplying exercise with these two crystals:

Now, to make these crystals MOST effective, you are going to want to clean, charge and program them, thus aligning the crystals's energies with what you want. And then aligning your mind to what you want with the most powerful form of energy - YOUR THOUGHT! Your thoughts Must be sayinig the same thing that you are wanting to manifest (in this case money). So, your thoughts already must be saying "I am rich" "I am wealthy" "I am prosperous" "I am abundant". As "they" say "fake it til you make it!" or say it until you believe it's true! Then those things will come into your life. If you are clinging on to these desperate thoughts, then you are just attracting these negative energies - debt, insecurity, worries, burdens ..always thinking you're broke will leave you in this state of being! So lift it up, monitor your thoughts (I will be blogging on this in the next post), keep it positive NO MATTER WHAT! Every "downfall" is a lesson for you to learn from and move on!

And yes, we have all sizes of these crystals from tiny pebbles starting at $1 to large clusters! The bigger the better, but you must be relative the size of your space - so if you want something for your pocket you obviously don't want anything more than a small tumbled stone! If you want something for your home, you don't want just a tiny pebble!

Another interesting article:



QUESTION: Hello There! I am working to attract a large sum of money into my life for peaceful and positive purposes. I have a large Citrine Pyramid Crystal which I hold in my hands for attracting my wealth energy. Can you instruct me on how to better use my crystal?

ANSWER: Hello! It sounds like you are on the right path for attracting wealth by meditating with your Citrine Pyramid! Meditating, visualizing and manifesting with your crystals is the most powerful way to tap into the crystal's energies. I assume you are already cleaning, charging and programming your crystals before using them (if not there is more information on under the tab "Crystal FAQ's").

The one thing that does come to mind as a suggestion to you is to have some smaller, more portable Citrine crystals around you while you are doing these meditations, so that you can easily take them with you during your day as a reminder of the manifestation you have been calling into your life.

As for the Citrine sphere, this will be easier to hold in your hands and you will most likely receive a different sensation. Different shapes have different effects on our thoughts. For me, a Pyramid brings in more sacred power, decisiveness and strength. For me, a sphere brings in more harmony, a softer energy, yet just as powerful, as it's the most uniform shape in the universe.

Spheres are also used for group harmony, bringing people together for progressive meetings and exciting solutions. Many healers will place large Crystal Balls in the center of their meeting tables or living spaces to bring a harmonious energy, aligning minds and raising the vibration among the group.

I would suggest placing your Citrine sphere on a ring in your money corner of your home, office or space - we place them on crystal rings which can double as rings to wear! The money corner is the furthest left corner from the door.

We are always happy to help you with any crystal healing advice. We also invite you to subscribe to our blog at where we answer many crystal questions like yours every week.

p.s. your Citrine sphere you ordered is on its way today!

CRYSTALS: Ex-boyfriends

QUESTION: I have a situation: my now ex boyfriend is gone, we shared a home together for almost 5 years, I'm wondering how to clear the energy, what crystals or placement of crystals I can do to get myself in a better place? what do I do about our bed? get rid of it?

ANSWER: First of all, I highly recommend you sage the place. Next, I would run the corners of your home with a clear Quartz point. I do this everytime I want to clear the energy of a new place I am moving in to.

After the Quartz energy to purify the home, I would place a little bit of salt and a black stone (jet, onyx, obsidian, tourmaline, etc) in the corners of the rooms for a few days.

You can also make a grid around your bed the same way, but if it is carrying old unwanted memories i would definitely trade it for something new. You can make a renewing grid for positive changes with Moonstone crystals at each corner of your bed (place them underneath the bed at the legs). I would definitely turn the mattress over.

Clean, charge and program the crystals you are going to use for the grid:

If you are going to use the Moonstone, I would program it for aiding you in your New Beginnings. It is also a very feminine energy, so it will help to balance out the yang energy of your ex-boyfriend and allow you to be calm in your own space.

CRYSTALS: Past Life Dreams

FOLLOW-UP: Dear Sheila, I am sorry, It wasn't Imperial Quartz. It was Tangarine Aura or Melon aura, or something of the like. It has the same sheen as aqua aura but was orange.

That is an interesting insight that I may have been a crystal healer in a past life. I always wonder why I dream of stones. I dream of crystals & stones quite often - particularly moonstone. Moonstone happens to be my favorite. I also find myself particularly attracted to carnelian even though I don't usually like the color red. I am attracted to stones even though I dont know what to do with them.

I have been taught to interpret my own dreams by symbol decoding. I haven't made time to do it. I am so attracted to these aura crystals that I thought finding someone with extensive knowlege about them would assist me in what It meant.

Thank you for you help Sheila! I truly appreciate it.

REPLY: Hi again! Ah, so it must have been one of the beautiful colors of Aqua Aura :)

Most people ARE attracted to crystals, even through they do not use them for healing! Just having crystals around gives off a great, natural energy, something we desperately need as we become more "civilized"!

If you have not already, I would highly suggest you join our crystal healing blog, where I post all kinds of crystal questions and answers (anonymously of course) that you would be interested in: You can enter your email in the "subscribe by email" or let me know and I can add you as well! We are having our next Crystal healing course on Oct. 30th weekend at our store in San francisco, if you live in the area or just want to fly in for the weekend!

Have a wonderful day and please don't hesitate to email us with any other crystal questions. We also have a chat feature on our website, which you can chat with us directly when we are online!
