QUESTION: I am hoping you can advise me on what crystal to use. I have always used crystals for healing, mental and physical. This time I am battling to find the right crystal. I was bitten by something while barefoot during a crystal grid/medicine wheel dedication. I have a large blister type formation on my ankle. I have been placing amber on the wound at night. It is not helping. This is the first time that I have not been successful.

Can you advise what type of crystal to use?

Kind Regards.
ANSWER: Thank you for your message. For bites, stings and sores, we highly recommend Apache Tears. Place this crystal over the bite after you have clean, charged and programmed it for your specific purpose. If you want to enhance the healing, we would also recommend you use Quartz and Serpentine combined with the Apache tears. Let us know how it goes!

CRYSTALS: Healing Circles

QUESTION: Hello Sheila Satin, I'm going to a healing circle at the end of March to celebrate the full moon. I wanted to bring a stone to the group as a gift.What stone would be the best to support the healing. Thank you.

ANSWER: Hello, most crystals are good for healing circles, if there is something specific you want to accomplish during the circle, we can give you a specific recommendation. Otherwise, I would recommend Amethyst, the spiritual stone or Moonstone which gives us the energy of the Moon Goddess.

We do have spheres, hearts, eggs, clusters, towers and Merkabas in these two crystals: and more in our retail store that are not online yet, so just ask!

CRYSTALS: Amber Cleaning

QUESTION: hi satin,i have a question about AMBER BRACELET?? what are good things to wear it and Cleaning, Charging the amber bracelet?? it same as crystal ?? many thanks

ANSWER: HI, thanks for your question, yes, you can treat Amber like you would your crystal bracelets. I would avoid water when cleaning jewelry as the cords will wear down more quickly in water. I would use another method that is not hard on the cord or findings like dry brown rice, sage or placing it on a large crystal cluster.

CRYSTALS: Rainbow Obsidian

: Hi! I know rainbow obsidian can be hard to photograph which may be why so many of the pictures show grey rings. Are all of the rings of color in this egg actually green and purple? Or are there grey rings too? Thank you!

ANSWER: Thanks for your interest in this beautiful Rainbow Obsidian egg. You are correct, it is difficult to capture the true beauty of Rainbow Obsidian with a camera. When I hold it under the light the colors are green, purple, and grey. 2 sides have eyes, or portals, and then the rest of the egg is lined with grey stripes.

Good luck!

CRYSTALS: Pyramid Grid

QUESTION: Dear Sheila, I have been creating crystal grids for healing and manifestation on the accord of my instincts...can I create crystal grids with only pyramids? do u have any document that can help with me understand different grid layouts and on pendulum as shown in your video. This will help me understand my pendulum and study better... Look forward to hearing from you. Light and Love

ANSWER: Hello, thanks for your question. Right now we do not have any documentation on crystal grid work, but pyramids are great to use in grids as they are good to focus and balance energies. They are a sacred shape, surrounded my mystery and powers of the unknown.

You do learn about Crystal Grids in the Crystal Healing course we teach, so if you're interested, feel free to sign up for the course.

As for pendulums, we do have the video and you can read on how we use pendulums: I will also be teaching a pendulum class in the coming weeks, so after that I can tell you more!

CRYSTALS: Family Ties

QUESTION: My cat jumped on my crystals while they were charging under a beautifulful moon. She broke four rose twisted wands. They broke in half. I superglued them together. My ? is I believe they still work. I use them as a grid around my bedroom. I just want to be sure my "sense" is correct. Your answer is appreciated when you have some time.

Also, my husband has been out of work for six months. Neither of us can find any work. We may lose our home. I have two teenagers who have ADD, ODD & ADHD and I'm menopausal (Arghhhhh). I'm the disciplinarian and follow through with consequences. My husband is a threatener and never follows through. Now they disrespect him so awful its disgusting I used to intervene, but have told him for years that thos was going to come back and bote him in the ass. Every night, there's a battle raging between my husband and children. I stay out of it They know better than to speak to me that way So, it's a constant battle for me and our marriage is pretty much over.

I've been smudging the house, gridding around the house, putting crystals under mattresses and gridding rooms, burning candles, using essential oils. Is there a "magic" stone for me.I feel like I'm going to explode. I even go so far as to go outside and hug cypress trees (my favorite). I call upon my angels, guides, ancestors and animal guides. In my heart I know I'll be fine, but I feel like I'm fighting a losing battle, as my husband is the type of person who buries his head in the sand. I'm trying very hard to keep the peace (I'm a Libra), but feel I'm losing my family and the closeness.

Any suggestions would be very much appreciated. Blessings,

ANSWER: First of all, let me say that you are doing well in a difficult situation. Realizing that you are not a part of the conflict between your husband and children is the first step to find balance in yourself. It has been said throughout the ages, we must realize ourselves (self-realization) before everything else can fall into line. On this note, I suggest you focus on your Crown Chakra. This is the area where we align with our Higher Selves, our path in the universe. As you are living in such chaos, meditating on this area will help to bring you back to coordination with your purpose in this life. For more information on this, visit:

Stones for the Crown Chakra that will be beneficial for you are ones with very high vibration like Danburite, Amethyst, Apophyllite and pair these with Quartz, the amplifying crystal. I see that you are staying grounded, visiting with nature. Having a lot of time for yourself will help you see the big picture, of why you are in the situation you are in, the lessons you are here to learn.

As for your broken Rose Quartz, gluing them back together is not a problem at all. We often glue our crystals together to make new creations. As long as what you make is whole in your mind, they will work just as effectively. If you think about it, all of the polished stones have been altered from their natural form to create something new.

Pet your precious cat for me, they are always drawn to higher vibrations and don't realize that their curiosity is in any way destructive to us :)

If you need any more advice, I am happy to help you out.

CRYSTALS: Knees & Hips

QUESTION: Hi Sheila, I came across you web page by chance, looking for healing crystals for my husband. He has constant pain in his knee where he had an operation and his hip where he fell down and obviously hurt himself. I read from your site that Selenite if good for this purpose, right? I intend to tape a piece of Selenite to these areas and hope that he will find some relief from the pain. Can you suggest any other remedies which can help him? Looking forward to hearing from you, thanks Kind regards,

ANSWER: Thank you for your question. I'm so glad you found us! Yes, Selenite will definitely aid in the regeneration of the cells in this area. Particularly for the knees, I would suggest Apatite. Bones in general, you may also wish to make a gem elixir out of Calcite (pictured is golden calcite). Mochi Balls are great to rub over the affected areas as well, we have heard great results from those who have arthritis problems when using Mochi Balls (aka: Shaman Stones, Moqui Balls).

Before using these crystals for healing, don't forget to clean, charge and program the for your intent: This will make the energies much more focused. Thought is the most powerful form of energy, therefore we want to access its powers to the fullest!

Please let me know how these stones work out for your husband. As mentioned before, each person reacts different to each type of crystal. Just like we are all unique individuals, so are crystals, so experimenting is best. Crystal books and teachers are a great guide, but in the end, you will have your favorites for particular purposes!

for more information, visit our website or feel free to email us anytime~

If you need help finding any of these, just let me know.If you need any jewelry made, wearing the crystals at the throat will be most effective for them!

Thanks for writing in!

QUESTION: Hi Sheila,Got your email ids through the google searches.I was searching to understand what the happens if a malachite breaks.I had a piece of malachite which was doing wonders for me health wise.It fell from my wifes and and broke into pieces.Trying to understand what it means for either of us.Sorry to bother you with this.thanks.

ANSWER: Thank you for your email. When crystals break it either means that you are done with its energies or you have not cleaned it out often enough. If it absorbs too much unwanted energies, the crystal can not take all the pressure and will crack. Make sure to always clean and charge your crystals on a regular basis if you know that it is doing active healing work.

Malachite is especially powerful in removing emotional traumas. You can imagine the kind of vibrations that this removal absorbs!

I would not worry, if you feel you still need the help of Malachite in your healing work, be sure to pick out another piece and regularly clean it. If you think that you no longer need its aid, you can move on to another crystal.

As for the broken crystal, place it back in the earth where it came from - bury it in your garden, potted plant, throw it into the seas...
