"They say that good things come in small packages. Well, it is true after you meet Bhakti Sondra Shaye. She is small in the physical sense, but let me tell you, she is big in the healing sense. Don't let her fool you, when she is channeling healing she is unlimited in size." - DEREK O'NEILL, Spiritual Teacher and Healer (Dublin, Ireland)
"I am so grateful for you ...You may never know the impact of our meeting nor the hope and stability provided by your Love. But whether you are aware or not, you shall be greatly rewarded by Our Father in Heaven."
"Sondra, Thank You. You have been an enormous help to me. I feel good for the first time in 8 years. I was in hell and I was brought out. I want to stay on this path."
"I attended one of Sondra’s workshops earlier this year when I was in deep sorrow. Sondra has something within her that transcends; this is something other, without hyperbole, she has something extraordinary within her. She touched me and my sorrow came welling out of me in the most healing way."
"I have been working with Sondra Shaye for 16 years. She has had a powerful impact on my life. She is an incredible healer. Over the years I've done various modalities with her, including Cord Cutting, Rising Star, Space Clearing, etc, both on myself and family members, and the results have been amazing, if not miraculous. She is a true energetic healer.”
“Sondra is a gifted healer. She's a radiant being - love and light pour from her."

"I listened to one of the videos with Sondra last night, and I feel connected to her talk. Sondra radiates so much unconditional love, joy and light, and it makes me wonder how is it possible to achieve that state of being. I believe that I found Sondra for the purpose of my healing and spiritual growth. With kind wishes."
"Sondra, I think of your beautiful holy presence in New York often. How lucky the city is to have you gracing its borders."
"In my more than a decade of serving people in a similar fashion, Sondra Shaye is among the most powerful, yet caring and loving healers and individuals I have ever come across. Trust your instincts and see her today - it will change your life for the better!"
"Wow, thank you, what a wealth of information you have. I really appreciate it!"
"I want to thank you for the work done, which confirms to me that your reputation as a powerful healer is well deserved."
"I am now convinced you have an amazing 'ear' to God."

"My life is better since I found you."
"I’m not totally sure how to express how grateful I am."
"You can't imagine how happy and grateful I am that I found you."

"I thank God for you Sondra. You are a wonderful, wonderful, spiritual person."
"You are Amazing and we treasure you. You Really changed our lives. We can't be more grateful for your spiritual help. It's your gift and we truly thank you for everything you've done for us.

"I thank you from my heart for all of the healing energy you bring onto this planet."
"Hello Sondra, Wonderful to know that you exist! Your story is inspirational, powerful and humble. I can easily appreciate where you are coming from! Awesomeness."
"Next to Derek, I hold you in the highest regard in relationship to purity of heart and healing potential and I trust that you can help me greatly."
"You are a true instrument of peace."

"Thank you so much Sondra. You continue to help me tremendously and I will continue to share my joys with you following our sessions because I have no doubts in my head that you are gifted. I'm blessed already in being brought to you for any healing."
"I also want to let you know how glad I am that our paths crossed. I know I can learn a lot from you. I met many healers and teachers and you are resonating with me the most. You are not just an advanced spiritual healer, but your heart is pure as well, you have compassion and I don't notice the usual wall that I do in many healers. I understand that wall, they are protecting themselves, but this way I feel they are hiding their true being as well. And I feel you just shine your light as it is. Beautiful and brave. And I see this so advanced, perfect for earthly use. It is so much closer to the teachings of the light beings. It feels like it's not something you intentionally do, it's just there around you effortlessly, a natural extension of you. Amazing mastery."
"Hi Sondra, I count myself so lucky to know you and to be able to recognise the great importance of your work for us all. All my love!"
"I spent the last hour going through your FB page. I laughed, I cried, you are an inspiration to us all. Thank you for being you !!! We need a whole lot more people like you to save us, the planet and all living creatures. You are amazing !!"
"What stood out to me the most when I met Sondra was her pure love. I didn't want to leave her :) For the short time I spent with her I felt a calmness that I forgot existed. I felt alive! How beautiful and magnificent it must feel to reach deep within and feel complete love."
"Thank you for all the love and healing you bring into this world."
"Thank you for being so incredibly caring. You truly are an angel. Very special. You're an energetic alchemist, turning my old led into gold ;)"
"Good afternoon Sondra, I wanted to reach out and to tell you how thankful , grateful and peaceful I feel for having met you. You're bringing peace to my life and my soul! I didn't believe I would ever feel this way. You're truly a blessing. I want to certainly continue working through my spiritual issues as well as emotional with you. I was so emotionally battered and beaten scarred from all I've been through as a young girl and a young woman I'm sooo eternally thankful you were able to provide some sort of serenity to my soul and my heart."
"Watching your interview [with Lilou] I was touched by your simplicity, by the sense of appreciation that surrounds you, and by the way you talk about Sai Baba. I never met Sai Baba in this life, but I certainly was touched by him in many ways. Thanks for sharing your bright light!"
"That look you gave me after the session was something I have NEVER EVER seen on any human! So much love and peace - it must be what Divine Mother looks like."
"Thank you again for your support and kindness. You are a gift for so many people!"
"It's always a pleasure to see you and spend time with you. I can hardly express my gratitude to you for your generosity, advice and love you've shared with me the last few years. I truly appreciate everything. Well the name fits - life changing. You may not realize what you have done for me. I couldn't have survived any of this if it wasn't for your support. All my love."
"After reading about you in Jeff Sharlet's book, I couldn't keep myself from asking for your friendship. Thank you so much for accepting. I have nothing to ask of you, other than you accept my heartfelt wishes for happiness and achievement. I'm just overjoyed to know that you're out there. Thank you so much for everything you do, Sondra. You are a true beacon and I have tremendous respect for you."
"I am so grateful to have you in my life, you are such a special and amazing soul! So much Love!"
"I have felt such an incredible shift since meeting with you."
"All the healing that is being done by Devotees like yourself, and Derek, one day in the near future I believe this world will be exceptionally wonderful, that is our goal, right??? As long as we keep calling on the Spirit of the Great White Brotherhood, the World Mother, and to You."
"You are a blessing to have come into my life. The initiations you have passed on to me have changed my life. You are an amazing servant of God. Thank you!"
"I honor you as one of my great teachers, one of purity and light. It is by grace that I have met you and Derek and Baba and I am so grateful."
"Thank you for serving the Light with such complete integrity, devotion and truth."
"Curious have other people commented on the energy starting just from making contact with you? Feels like a deepening is happening already. The process seems to have started already."
"Thank you for making the sacrifice to help others. It is very much appreciated!"
"A million times thank you, words are not enough for me to express how grateful I am that you and Derek have given your lives to help all of us! My family's lives are forever changed for the better and it all started with my finding you and seeking your help. Again, I can't thank you enough! I love you with all of my heart, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart."
"You are the only person I know on the east coast who has a full-time healing practice that is thriving. Of course this is because you have so much integrity and your energy and the ability to facilitate healings and workshops is of the very highest vibration."
"Every time I'm in your presence I feel like I'm with an angel, it's such an honor, for real! It's only been a little over a year that I was sooo lucky (or guided) to find you and what a huuuge year for me in my spiritual growth! I feel so fortunate to be able continue in the Karnak Initiations with you. My guides have definitely led me to the right teacher. I'm eternally grateful."
"And so here I am joining in the song of loving gratitude coming your way for the gift that you are to all of us. Bless you Sondra for all that you do in loving, healing service. I am forever grateful to you for your selfless service."
"That was an amazing healing session - so powerful. I feel lighter. Many thanks, so grateful to you. You are a powerful and gentle healer!"
"As my Irish grandmother used to say, Sondra, 'you've got the gift.' Thanks so much for sharing it with the world."
"You're such a bright light."
"Today was incredible! The initiation, the BEAUTIFUL healing you facilitated for me - and I mean beautiful!!! It was simply incredible! While we are NOT the doers, there is a talent and a gift to being able to facilitate and the way you do so is subtly stunning and moving."
"Thank you Sondra for giving your life to the path of Truth and Love. I know how much courage it takes and I have endless reverence for your commitment."
"Thank you for being such a great friend. New York is certainly blessed to have you there."
"You have truly connected with a magical source and have blessed me so tremendously. I am so grateful for connecting with you. Many thanks!"
"I know there are no coincidences and I also know I am pretty clueless as to the full significance of events, but what I do know is that connecting with you at this time is a gift and I am beyond grateful."
"Hi Sondra, Thank you so much for my healing session yesterday. Today I felt so clear and driven. Also speaking to you always helps me put things into a better perspective. The world just feels better today. You're truly blessed and I'm so grateful."
"I can honestly say that the work done by and through you has majorly changed my life over the last few weeks and months."
"I'm doing a 40-day practice and today's practice was on belief in abundance and releasing financial fears. The suggestion was to 'Give money to a place that you are spiritually fed, as it makes a statement to the universe that you believe abundance must be shared.' Without a doubt, you were the first person I thought of. I hope you know how much I appreciate your gifts!"
"Hi Sondra. I just wanted to let you know that my father will be discharged from hospital tomorrow! He is going into rehab for 2 weeks and then home. Thank you so much for being there during the darkest hour. I can't thank you enough, actually. Lots of love and hugs."
"Good afternoon Sondra, I wanted to reach out and to tell you how thankful, grateful and peaceful I feel for having met you. You're bringing peace to my life and my soul! I didn't believe I would ever feel this way. You're truly a blessing. I want to certainly continue working through my spiritual issues as well as emotional with you. I was so emotionally battered and beaten scarred from all I've been through as a young girl and a young woman. I'm sooo eternally thankful you were able to provide some sort of serenity to my soul and my heart. I was sooo lost when I first met you with my health and myself, still am not where I want to be but far from where I was before with your help. I don't believe I could ever thank you enough but spread our love through peace and somewhere in the universe it will be heard!"
"You have really evolved to the next level of facilitation. Considering your dedication and perseverance, would be expected more than surprising at this point."
"You have a lovely heart, Sondra. Manners, Etiquette, Professionalism, and just plain old-fashioned TLC still exist, through you Sondra! Merci!"
"I came across your interview with Lilou. I was struck by your clarity and generosity and by what a good soul you are and how dedicated to service. The fact that you give the credit to Source is also impressive and makes me want to work with you."
"Divinity sent me to you, because it was by accident I encountered your interview and it brought tears to my eyes."
"You and your teachings are a big blessing in my life."
"Everything started changing when I came to see you!"
"You have been and continue to be a true light, helping me find my own path. Thank you is very little as it cannot express my gratitude in all its strength. When I think about how I came to meet you that first time - I am in awe at the beautiful, divine and magical ways in which the universe works. I was pushed to meet you. In fact, I knew nothing about energy work at the time and I was very skeptical. But look at me now!"
"Thank you for everything. You are a gift. Thank you for every time you have healed me and situations in my life. I am always grateful."
"I am so grateful to have you in my life, you are such a special and amazing soul! So much Love!"
"Just after writing you I felt your energy field and WOW!!!"
"I really miss seeing you and getting my sessions with you. I have never felt better in my life than at that time."
"I can feel the spirit of your heart, much like the people of India, which l truly love. Thank You."
"I really appreciate your amazing healing."
"Thank you Sondra so so much. I truly appreciate all your healings."
"I like the way you put yourself into the class and at the same time maintain space for others to go through their own processing. You are an awesome blessing!"
"Pretty and peaceful place to visit. Thank you. I wish everyone were like you. Earth would be so much more pleasant. Blessings."
"Thank you Sondra for your help in finding my joy and peace."
"I just want to say thanks a million for everything, for all your healing and for all your help when I needed it. I am forever grateful. You are truly amazing. Healing amazes me and I truly believe in it and always have. Now I really feel like me again after some life challenges and went through all the deep healing and spiritual awakening. I have regained my inner power and self confidence. I have learned skills to protect my energy, to clear my energy regularly. I can speak my truth with ease. Also have really learned self love and have made peace with my past. I have always been brilliant at looking after others but now I have come home to myself, am more gentle with myself and I am looking after myself much better. I am really blessed and grateful and thankful. Thanking you, best wishes to you. Lots of love."
"Since I met you, the abundance that has been coming into my life is somewhat of a miracle. I've also been able to emotionally release my ex-husband. The most beautiful part is my mom's spirit has continuously appeared to me for the past several weeks."
"Thank you very much, Sondra! So grateful for all these sessions. They and you have been such an enormous support. I'm so lucky! Thank you thank you thank you!
"I have been seeing Sondra Shaye for 10 years. She is in Brooklyn and is a "healer's healer". She gives amazing workshops and has unbelievable healing modalities that she offers in private sessions."

“We get great results from your work, it’s wild!”
"Thank you for all your help, you are wonderful!"
"You have helped me tremendously."

"Thank you again, Sondra. I feel blessed to have been led to you."
"I am so grateful for all that you do, Sondra!"
