Here is a Crystal Surgery Demo with both experiential and instructional components, that includes the following techniques:
Soothing with Seraphinite and Relieving Frustration with Sardonyx, V-Gridding with Diopside and Thunder Bay Amethyst Red Cap; Deep Relaxation and Core Tension Release. Presenters: Vivien Schapera and Shannon Villalba of Hime Wellness
Photographer: Neil Schapera
Synchronizing the Energy Body and the Physical Body, Raising Vibrational Frequency, White Light Infusion, Streaming White Light, Energy Field Massage, Sealing the Energy Field and Generating Energy are the techniques demonstrated in this video of the final and 4th phase of a healing session.
For synchronizing the energy body and physical body: create a circuit with small pieces of Amazonite and Tibetan Rose Salt
For raising vibrational frequency: White stones — Metamorphosis Quartz, White Kunzite, Lightning Struck Quartz, Growth Interference Quartz are used — all white stones will work. And intensely colored chakra stones will work too.
For streaming white light: White Apophyllite has a high white/silver vibrational frequency that is ideal. For sealing the energy field: Titanium Aura Quartz is painted onto the cells of the energy field. You can substitute with any Aura Quartz.
For Generating Energy: Hematite Coated Quartz from Morocco and Smoky Quartz Elestial from Brazil are used in this demo and the White Phurba Wand is made up of a carved Quartz Phurba, a Kwan Yin engraved center piece and Lemurian Quartz Sphere.

Dissolving emotional walls in the brain, how to grid the head, how to do an extraction and how to re-align the pranic tube are all demonstrated, with instruction, in this video. After the Calming and Clearing & Detox phases of a healing session comes the 3rd phase in which you do the healing techniques you have chosen for the client.
This tutorial continues to optimize the fortunate situation in which experienced Crystal Surgery graduate, Linda Ruhe, returns for continuing education in the new techniques that have been developed since she trained. As the viewer you get to watch Vivien instruct Linda through the steps, guiding and refining her technical skills, adding a layer of instructional value.

In the second phase of a healing session we pay attention to Clearing and Detox.
We need to clear what’s coming in to us, from the outside, and we also need to detoxify what is building up on the inside.
What comes from the outside, comes via cords from other people. It is very sensible to clear cords before proceeding with other healing techniques, because old cording from others is “energetically unhygienic and causes energy issues ranging from confusion to feeling drained … and much worse … like psychic attack.
What builds up on the inside comes from both our stress and emotions, and toxins are also the natural byproducts of our metabolic processes. Additionally, modern life is toxic – we breathe and bathe in environmental poisons, we willingly consume toxic substances en masse, and we live in a state of excessive stress, bombarded by negativity. This toxic overload has dire impact on our health. When healthy, we are self-healing organisms. When overloaded, the self-healing mechanism can get slowed down, blocked or even stopped.
This particular tutorial has an added dynamic: Linda trained in Crystal Surgery about 15 years ago and many new techniques have been developed since then. We took advantage of the opportunity and included much explanation in what turned out to be a cinéma-vérité video shoot. To avoid being too long and cumbersome, the explanations regarding the crystal tools have been put in a second video entitled Crystal Surgery Tutorial: Clearing & Detox Part B The Crystal Tools Explained.
There are about 5 different Detox Techniques in Crystal Surgery and we selected the technique that goes best with release of toxins from emotional stress — namely a Shungite Detox. We also used Common Opal, under the hands to suck out toxicity. Our focus was on stimulating cellular metabolism of the body tissues via a Shungite Infusion, followed by use of the Shungite Wand to stimulate flow, as well as simultaneously using Faden crystals and Garnets to help with draining the toxins and stress. In this video you will see Linda and I doing this together. When working alone, the Faden technique follows the wand technique. If you do not have a Shungite Wand, you can use a pyramid, or even a piece of Shungite — it just takes longer to get the same effect.
With the right kind of assistance – especially the removal of toxicity – we can return to vibrant health. By clearing toxicity, we can restore the functioning of the self-healing mechanism and boost the functioning of the immune system.

With an abundance of Detox info, we put the bonus material explaining the Crystal Detox Tools in this separate video. There are 5 different detox techniques, plus their hybrids, in Crystal Surgery, and we look at the new techniques and tools with Linda, who initially trained in Crystal Surgery about 15 years ago.
The video only briefly shows the Mica, Pricking Wand, Scraper and Detox Wand which we use in the original “Basic Detox Procedure” and you can see this technique being demonstrated in Crystal Surgery Demo 2: Prepping for Physical Surgery. We go directly into talking about the new techniques, beginning with the Rapid Detox which uses Fuchsite and Garnet in Matrix.
We then go on to talk about Halite and Tibetan Rose Salt, and Blue Salt; followed by Common Opal and Cachalong. We also talk about Shungite and the De-Cording Tools of Bulgarian Ajoite Opal and Aragonite.

Old etheric tissue can bind our hearts, preventing a natural flow of giving and receiving love. Ranging from small hurts to serious wounds from rejection and loss, this binding comes from our life experiences and accumulates over time. For those who want to understand more, or even do this procedure, here are all the steps for scraping old etheric tissue off the energy body’s heart:
1. Set Up shows Fanning, Sweeping and Opening the Chakras – what we call “Basic Prep.”
2. 2 styles of evaluating the energy field: Scanning with the long wand that can pick up the texture and turbulence in the energy field, and then checking comparative chakra energy using a pendulum.
3. Explaining to Jamie what the evaluation found and which procedure I have selected to address what I found.
4. Removing the cording from the heart chakra.
5. Doing the gold standard Basic Detox procedure — these are the steps: Pricking over Mica, Scraping, Scooping, Vacuuming.
6. Opening the energy body.
7. Lifting the energy body heart upwards so that I can scrape back front and sides evenly.
8. Unbinding the Heart – scraping off the old etheric tissue that is binding the heart.
9. Replacing the heart inside the physical body.
10. Vacuuming up the bits of etheric tissue that may have fallen into the energy field.
11. Closing the Energy Body
12. Massaging with White Light – with a Cathedral Quartz and Tourmaline wand.
13. And a Heart Support Chakra Layout – using a selection of heart stones — from second chakra upwards: Morganite, Kunzite, Eudialyte, Rose Quartz, Peruvian Fluorite.
14. Energy Generating into the heart chakra
15. Balancing Heart and Mind with Seraphinite and Mangano Calcite Spheres
16. Checking the swing of the Heart Chakra for a before and after comparison.
17. Waking Jamie at the end of the procedure.
Crystal Surgery techniques will all be published in The Complete Guide to Crystal Surgery, due to be released in the last quarter of 2019. For more info, please visit us at www.CrystalHealingTechniques.com and to email us, use the contact form on the website.

This is the last video of our metaphysical jewelry series.
This narrated tutorial is about the first of the 4 phases of a healing session.
Healing is like growing plants – optimum conditions will deliver optimum effects. In phase 1 we set up the conditions for healing: ensuring the client is centered and present, outside energy influences are cleared away, and the appropriate vibrational frequency is established via the supportive stones.
Here is a transcript of the narration
The first dynamic to check is how the client is lying on the table.
Clients tend to lie down at an angle with some twists and kinks.
Linda gently organizes Jamie’s head so it isn’t tilted.
Then, with Jamie’s help, I organize her legs on the bolster.
Linda places her hands on the tops of Jamie’s feet. With soft hands, she makes a full contact. I’m using the Alexander Technique to show Linda how to use her own skeleton to ground Jamie. The key is in Linda’s energetic alignment, and her upright, balanced stance, including Linda’s awareness of Jamie’s whole being all the way up to her head.
I place a Tangerine Lemurian coated with Calcite, under Jamie’s hand, and use this opportunity, to connect. Hands offer a direct path to the heart, and touching Jamie’s hand is like touching her heart. Phase 1 is about calming the client and setting up the right atmosphere and vibrational frequency for the healing session.
Linda places a raw carnelian under Jamie’s left hand, and also connects with her heart. Linda is a licensed massage therapist.
We place rose quartz under the calves
for infusing loving energy throughout the session.
Aquamarine between the lower legs and knees to encourage an energetic realignment.
Cachalong under the heels
for reflecting white light into the energy system
Then we spend time connecting with the feet,
as we did with the hands.
Many clients only begin to relax once their feet have been touched.
Most people have sore and tired feet and this contact is very comforting.
Next comes fanning and I demonstrate how not to fan — with a straight movement
Linda shows another common error — short strokes
What we want is one continuous stroke that follows the contours of the body
If you don’t have a fan or feather you can use your hand
Remember to fan the arms
And not to cross the midline of the body when fanning
Fanning blows away the outside energies, equivalent to the dust that collects on surfaces, that cling to our energy fields.
The secret to a smooth continuous movement is in allowing your feet to move
We also fan the bottoms of the feet 3 times.
This is called sweeping. Using a crystal cluster we point the terminations at the physical body and do a continuous movement that follows the contours.
I’m encouraging Linda to ensure the crystal terminations are pointed at Jamie’s body.
Sweeping clears the energy field of debris, just like sweeping your kitchen floor.
If you don’t have a crystal cluster, you can use your hands.
This action is a little more like peeling than sweeping but it works well.
Curl your fingers to make them rake-like.
And clear your hands afterwards.
We do sweep the bottoms of the feet as well.
We continue with laying on of hands to help Jamie become present in her physical body, and receptive to healing energy.
Notice that we place our hands on bones — shoulders and knees,
Feet and knees
Knees and hands
Hands and shoulders
Shoulders and head
Head and rib cage
We’re ready to proceed with opening the chakras
When there are 2 people it is helpful to hold the client’s feet whenever not occupied with some other technique
If you like, you can use your hand to open the chakras. I’m showing Linda where the epicenter of the palm chakra is, and explaining that this must connect with Jamie’s chakra.
I help Linda to get the right connection so that she can feel the texture and energy of Jamie’s solar plexus chakra. Once Linda can clearly sense the energy, her hand takes over and knows what to do!
Back to our wands!
We sync up to give Jamie an unusual experience —
2 chakras being opened simultaneously—
this is extra powerful.
The last part of phase 1 is to complete placing the support stones. I grid the root chakra with garnet.
This activates the chakra system,
like switching on your stove —
only once there is heat can the cooking process begin.
I place the garnet in the overlap between the root and sacral chakras.
Then we follow with a (mostly) color-matched chakra layout, placing our beloved Orange Calcite Hearts
Yellow Danburite and Yellow Opal
Rose quartz and Peruvian Fluorite
Blue Lace Agate
Seraphinite Cabochon (not color-matched, but properties-matched)
And an Aquamarine (not color-matched) Vogel style crystal to invite centering of the energy body.
We complete phase 1 with another comforting contact and we’re ready to proceed to phase 2. Let the healing begin.
There are 4 phases to a healing session: Calming, Detox, Healing and Energizing. Each phase will be presented in a tutorial.

Allow your heart to fill with gentle energy and your mind to relax as you watch these healing hands dance through the chakras, massaging the energy field.
Energy Healing can be technical, or it can flow from the heart. Vivien and Linda use just a few different hand movements to energize Jamie’s energy field and chakras, demonstrating how relaxing and enjoyable it is to connect in this loving way.
This video is designed to generate a meditative brain wave state, giving the viewer a relaxing experience.

The first skill to learn in both Energy Healing and Crystal Healing is how to open chakras, and as we progress we discover that “opening” chakras has many layers of refinement, including never-ending insights into what this kind of chakra adjustment actually entails.
In this tutorial, Vivien spends time explaining to Jamie what to watch out for when teaching beginners, and what to focus on correcting for establishing a strong foundation of learning in the topic.
After explaining the common errors, Vivien and Jamie go on to look at adjusting chakras with different materials such as a sphere and with Aqua Aura.
In response to Linda’s question, they also touch on whether clients can lie on their front and side when having their chakras adjusted.
