Choosing, Clearing and Programming a Proxy Crystal

This tutorial explains what to look for in a proxy crystal, for when you do remote healing.
A proxy crystal needs to be clear Quartz, of an appropriate size and shape, and also needs to have the right personality.
Vivien explains what this means and also goes on to show these steps:
1. Mapping the chakras on the proxy crystal.
2. Clearing the crystal by stroking from feet to head 7 times.
3. Programming the crystal to receive the client's energy body by stroking from head to feet 7 times.
4. Placing the crystal on the remote healing board, in readiness to begin the session.
These tutorials are designed to accompany The Complete Guide to Crystal Surgery (2020) and to provide visual instruction for guided exploration of the textbook, with a partner.
