Veterans often face challenges when leaving active duty and re-adapting to civilian life. Re-establishing their roles in their family and finding stable employment can prove difficult, frustrating, and disheartening.
Veterans also deal with challenges related to their physical and mental well-being, with depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) being the most common afflictions they struggle with.
Healing crystals are optimal alternative therapeutic tools for readjusting veterans. The high vibrational energy of these lucent stones can help them transmute negative experiences into positive feelings such as forgiveness, acceptance, resilience, and inner peace.
Village Rock Shop is a veteran-led store. We honor and appreciate veterans, and we consider they need every help and support they can get. We compiled a list of crystals that can help veterans during their healing process.
Amethyst is commonly used as a natural stress reliever, but can also help clear the mind of negative thoughts. Those who struggle with anxiety, panic attacks, or PTSD should work with this crystal daily.
Meditation using amethyst is always a soothing, healing experience, as the crystal radiates calming, peaceful energies.
Traumatic events often lead to sleeping disorders, resentment, phobias, and depression, and this beautiful purple crystal is an ideal aid for such burdens.

Mental and emotional trauma hurts just as much as physical harm, and the crystal's gentle energy is like a healing balm for emotional wounds.

Wearing crystal jewelry is the simplest way to harness their energies. To maximize the results, we recommend wearing the selected jewelry every day and cleansing it periodically.
Meditation with crystals is another effective way to channel high vibrational energies from the universe. Holding palm stones or tumbled crystals during meditation, relaxation, visualization, or breathing techniques will enhance the effects of these practices.
Small tumbled stones, raw crystals, or crystal spheres are easy to carry around throughout the day in the pocket, purse, or attached to a keychain to enjoy their benefits.
Large crystal clusters, geodes, tower generators, and spheres are ideal home decor elements. With these crystals, veterans can transform their homes into peaceful tranquil spaces where they can feel completely safe and at ease.
