Note: The prompt for today’s SoCS prompt is Soul/Sole to be used separately or together, however we choose. SoCS is hosted by Linda G. Hill, at https://lindaghill.com/2019/03/15/the-friday-reminder-and-prompt-for-socs-march-16-19/
The picture above is a picture of my soul traveler crystal. It is one of my favorite crystals of the many that I have. It is about 3” tall, about 1 ½” in diameter, terminated at one end. In the center is what is called an inclusion, a single black dot, which looks like it’s floating. That little black dot is what makes it a soul traveler. (In order to enhance the picture enough to see the black dot, I had to cut off the terminated end of the crystal.)
I bought it at a place in CT, where I bought almost all my crystals, called Nature’s Art. I became good friends with the woman who managed the crystal and mineral store. Her name was Barbara, and she was a wonderful resource for all things crystal. She was 10 to 15 years older than me. She had a wise countenance, and it went perfectly with the bun of white hair on top of her head. I once bought a crystal ball from her, though I had no idea how to use it. She said even though she normally only did this for family members, she would show me how to use it. Though I’ve never been able to see anything in it, I was honored that she showed me. I’ll try again one of these days.
In one corner of the store, they had a row of buckets, which were labeled $1, $2, $3 , and were full of crystals, which you could just pick through. Barbara never minded when I came in to the store, sat down on the floor in the corner and went through the buckets. I found some really cool crystals in those buckets. If I couldn’t identify them, I’d take them to Barbara and most of the time she could tell me right off the bat what kind of crystal it was, metaphysically speaking. Inner child, channeler, soulmate, tabby, stargazer, abundance. There are so many, so many more. If she didn’t know what it was, or did but was unsure of the metaphysics of the crystal, she had the resources behind her counter to look it up. But when I took this one to her, not knowing what if any signifcance it had, she looked at me wide eyed, and told me it was a soul traveler, on it’s way through the ethers. I asked her, “Is that soul, or sole?” Because obviously this tiny dot of inclusion was alone in the crystal. She smiled at me, and said, “Both, I would say.” It was a somewhat unusual crystal to find.
Through the many years since then, I have collected more than my share of crystals. I have a few favorites. One of them is a dolphin crystal, so named because it is a larger crystal with a smaller one attached to one side, the way you see dolphins carrying their babies on their backs. Dolphin crystals are supposed to be very protective. This particular crystal also is a channeler, meaning one face of it has 7 sides and connects to a 3 sided triangle at the point, it is also a time-link, and a window, and is what is known as self healed, meaning it healed itself when it broke off from the main body. There are no jagged edges where it separated, they are all rounded and smoothed. Another favorite is my phantom crystal, which appears to have ghosts of the crystal inside it. Over the millenia, the same fluid which created the original crystal, poured on top of it, over and over, to create the outline of the previous lives in the crystal.

Personally, I believe we are all soul/sole travelers. We are all making our way, evolving our souls, learning our lessons, and if this crystal’s energy somehow assists me in that journey, I’m happy to accept that assistance. It’s maybe part of the grand design of the universe, one of those markers you have to think about to get the message. After all, I’ve come to believe that nothing in the universe happens by coincidence. Which extends to the energies found in different crystals.
At least, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. Maybe it’s just my way of justifying all the money I’ve spent on crystals but hey, but I don’t think so.
Love and light to all.
If you wish to take part in the Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt, the rules are:
1. Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing (typos can be fixed), and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.
2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence – one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry – it doesn’t matter. Just let the words carry you along until you’re ready to stop.
3. I will post the prompt here on my blog every Friday, along with a reminder for you to join in. The prompt will be one random thing, but it will not be a subject. For instance, I will not say “Write about dogs”; the prompt will be more like, “Make your first sentence a question,” “Begin with the word ‘The,’” or will simply be a single word to get you started.
4. Ping back! It’s important, so that I and other people can come and read your post! For example, in your post you can write “This post is part of SoCS:” and then copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of this post into yours. Your link will show up in my comments for everyone to see. The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top. NOTE: Pingbacks only work from WordPress sites. If you’re self-hosted or are participating from another host, such as Blogger, please leave a link to your post in the comments below.
5. Read at least one other person’s blog who has linked back their post. Even better, read all of them! If you’re the first person to link back, you can check back later or go to the previous week by following my category, “Stream of Consciousness Saturday,” which you’ll find below the “Like” button on my post.
6. Copy and paste the rules (if you’d like to) in your post. The more people who join in, the more new bloggers you’ll meet and the bigger your community will get!
7. As a suggestion, tag your post “SoCS” and/or “#SoCS” for more exposure and more views.
8. Have fun!
I have a few crystals packed away since our temporary relocation. It’s been a while since I took the time to look at and into them. You’ve inspired me to take time with my crystals when I find them again.
Wow that was amazing! Out of all the crystals, which one is your favorite? I used to collect stones before too. In the end, I throw them out. I’m impressed!:)
I think the dolphin has always been my favorite. Thanks for reading. Your kind words are appreciated so much!
My pleasure. It was a good read!:)
Learn something new in all of your posts, and certainly did ith the one too. I love crystals, but didn’t know about them all. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks so much. When I first began to be interested in them, I was questioning the vibrational aspect of their energy. Someone said to me, “Why do you think they use them in watches? Because the virbration is so consistent and regular, it is used in many industyrial applications. They are fascinating!.
