In a crystal we have clear evidence of the existence of a formative life principle, and though we cannot understand the life of a crystal, it is nonetheless a living being.

Before I go into the work itself here, I will note that for work with clients I use sustainably sourced crystals from ethical mines. My central resource has even found ways to work with some mines that have a relationship with the locale, serves the community in one way or other, and actually creates a better physical environment that includes nurturing and improving the land itself. I have been lucky enough to also find local shops back East and where I am now on the Left Coast that source ethical crystals.
To Crystals: If you've ever felt different standing in a beach, a mountain, a great plane, or cement, you know that there are different vibrations to different surfaces and solid bits of matter. Even if you haven't had varying sensations in the experiences mentioned, if you know physics, you know the concept. Those of us who are more sensitive and/or tuned in simply didn't need conventional sciences to inform us (although it's always convenient to have the proof) that said, we might appreciate it as a marker for others that we've been sensing very real things. Even a marble countertop v a metal or a wooden one can be an entirely different feel.
I once worked with a photographer who had gone minimal and felt her space felt too cold energetically. Halfway through the shoot, she said I seemed like a minimalist but also energetically sensitive and wanted to know what I did. I agreed and said I had found that a lot of wood pieces would warm up the space and let it feel more natural. Also, of course, soft fabrics can assist. Having rock and crystal pieces can support this too. (And it helps that they're real purty.) In a high rise, a high altitude, or a very dry and windy area or season (or mental state), they might even feel necessary to ground and stabilize things. Type of crystal or stone, size, placement, and care are all details I won't go on and on about here. Suffice to say, each unique crystal - family and stone - has its own feel as well and so they do make a difference as well: You can add any old spice to a dish OR you can add the spice that works best with that particular recipe, is the Goldilocks amount, has been stored well, and is still good to eat.
Like any spice, or anything else in nature, crystals can be potent in their effects, and so proper use is valuable: Traditional medical science texts of India and Tibet express that anything in nature can be a medicine or a poison; it is about the factors involved, especially the practitioner and also the client / patient, the reason it is being used, the amount, the process of preparation and application, etc. Like so many things, people today agree that these things work, and therefore many more people want to try them at home. And of course you can and that might a great experience for you. I simply suggest that you do your research and take care. Less is always more, especially as you begin. And it can be a strong choice to pay attention to any results, including those you might not immediately have assumed could be related.
Back to my practice; I've had crystals present for years and over time have learned about their physical constitutions, lore/stories, qualities, meaning, and benefits from the experiences and perspectives of various individuals and traditions.
In 2020, my calendar opened up a bit -- not sure if the same happened for you; it seems that it might have for a lot of people. I signed up for some courses I hadn't made the time for, (having always prioritized availability in my schedule for acting). These included training and for work with crystals in service of others. To be frank, I have explored these things for so long already on my own and there is so much in the way of books and inline searches, that the practical side of the education was where more of the learning was.
Regardless, your and my most practical and/or prove-it-to-me aspects can rest easy that I studied in an accredited diploma program with a final, intake forms, case studies, and everything.
I work with crystals in many areas;
-In home and workspace from a Vastu Shastra / Feng Shui; Good Space; perspective. I offer assistance in analyzing and making a plan for a home or business - as well as areas of a home that serve a business.
-With individuals and groups placing stones near and/or on the body/ies (either as the sole treatment or as an ingredient in an integrative offering).
-Grids. One thing the aforementioned training did encourage me to experiment with is crystal grids and I have been exploring those of late. If you aren't familiar with that concept, it's essentially bringing sacred geometry into the work with crystals to enhance the potency via the energetic patterns which seem to expand, as with sound, architecture, and other arrangements of energies / vibrations, with the assistance of this type of structuring.
-Custom Intuitive Crystal selection. It's wonderful to be able to take a trip to an energy dome like a crystal shop and it is frequently advised that we not purchase them online, but connect with them ourselves in the physical. Some are lucky enough to be intuitive and be able to sense things even at a distance and for others as well. I first selecting stones for people 15 years ago and have done it periodically now and again for individuals and/or for their home / work space. I was recently called to do it for a large group of individuals and then hired from that to do it as a service. Especially for those too busy, who live far from any crystal shop, and who don't know much and would like to work with crystals before they'll be able to accumulate knowledge of a full crystal bible to understand which ones can work best for them at any given time, I now offer selection as a service. I cleanse and charge them but advise you do that part again if I send them to you through the mail. If you are local, I can drop them off and then they'd just need you to establish a relationship with them. I offer options as to the process, including brief consults. I can also just get your name and budget and see what feels best for you at the local shops. If we were in a session, I might have one present that feels like it's for you and offer it and / or if you felt working with them went well, I could search for you based on that session.
-Remote work, which has expanded since April of 2020, as you can imagine, and remains my main area of offering until further notice. If you have experienced distal energy, sound, or other transformational facilitation work, there is little difference here and they of course are sometimes integrated into that type of a distance service.
