"I had spent over $800 on two astrological rings, but noticed no change. Then Stephen Quong recommended to me a simple quartz crystal necklace, one that he had from India that had been hand-cut and dipped in the Ganges , each knot tied as the Gayatri mantra was chanted. I bought it for $108, and noticed an incredible difference from the moment I put it on. I felt supercharged with energy, clear, and joyous.
I saw myself accomplishing mountains as if surfing on a wave, just watching the flow. The experience restored my faith that astrological gems can make a difference. As Stephen put it, when someone finds the right stone for them, they jump up and their eyes pop out. I thought I couldn't tell which gem to pick, but when Stephen showed me those crystals, I just had to have them. I guess it's not as mysterious as I thought. I can tell!" A.N., Grass Valley , CA

"You ARE THE MAN! I just had a meeting with his Boss and I'm getting to keep 67% commission credit for ALL the deals outside of my territory if they close by the end of the month. Your advice definitely gave me the confidence and belief to succeed over this issue. YOU'RE AWESOME!!!!!! Thanks again. I'll let you know how much of it actually I close and what it really meant to my bottom line. Keep studying the stars! You're the BEST! Thanks." HEO, Boston , MA

"I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart, and from the top of my heart right now.... It was sitting listening to someone who was sensitive and... you just explained what my path has been so far.
Everything--absolutely every single thing that you have said--is 100 percen... and I would like to thank you so much. And my mother [who was visiting and heard part of the tape] said, "What a beautiful voice you had." I let my girlfriend hear the beginning of this tape this weekend because she had come over and she said, "What a beautiful voice you have," and "it's so soothing and so loving and so kind." So I want to thank you a million times over, and I wish you every success...and I love you! MR, Canada

Many, many thanks for the great coaching and approaches to all the issues I have. Looking forward to having more readings from you in the near future!” SS Berkeley , CA

“I have felt a big reduction in anxiety since meeting up. I don't know if it's the herbs, stones, pillow or what. What I do know is this. The herbs are fantastic. Big calming effect. Also your perspective on ***** really helped diffuse the bad energy--your insights were dead-on. There is something about getting the info from someone who doesn't really know her, it makes it more powerful.” JD San Anselmo , CA

“Your personal meditation crystal is remarkable! Meditation is the Sadhana assigned to me by my teacher (who is back home in India , in Pune). And I am accustomed to meditating in a darkened room, usually before 6:00 AM , and with closed eyes focused on the spot between my eyes. So when you invited me to feel some kind of energy from the image on my computer screen I was, shall we say, skeptical.
Within five seconds of looking at the crystal I felt a pulsation at my temples of a moderate speed. Thinking this ludicrous I scrolled down and read a bit. The pulsing stopped immediately. I scrolled back up, and again immediately the pulsing returned! You made some kind of believer out of me!” PM (email)

“I was exploring your web site further and it happened again! I was receiving the blessed Darshan of the Divine Crystal Shri Chakta Meru Yantra when I distincly heard AUM. I am almost legally deaf and so I took out my hearing aid ... and the AUM persisted. Please clue me in! What is going on? I intend to bookmark the page with the Shri Chakra Meru Mantra so I can revisit it and, I hope, benefit from the visual and auditory Darshan. Delightedly perplexed,” PM (email)

"I want to thank you so much for your help! I feel that I could not have sold my restaurant without your help. You really made a difference." DM, San Francisco, CA
