This is a first for us as we’re dedicating this article to Lisa Reimer Riley; she was the inspiration to do this note and believe you me she keeps us on our toes with her questions! For this we’d like to thank her very much and do keep them coming!
So what’s it all about? I’m sure that you’ve heard people talk about souls in particular ‘old souls’ but what you might not know is that there are there are five soul stages:
I am sure that you have heard of the phrase ages and stages and in a way souls are not that much different. So let’s break this down in to easy bites:
I love to see the way that the seagulls are flying in our image; they’re floating on the wind just doing their own thing. I guess that it is very much the same for old souls; they blend in and seem that they don’t contribute much in society; following the rules so that they blend in, preventing unnecessary attention. I would say that seldom do old souls have a problem with self esteem but an inner knowing of following their own unique motto.... “if you like me fine, if you don’t so what”. From an external perspective they might seem that they are often out of place with the rest of the population, but this is only because they see things differently with a more mature and knowing attitude. It has been estimated that about eleven percent of the population are old souls.
Some people feel that old souls can very often loners; they do their own thing and aren’t much bothered by the social norms. I wonder what you think. They also have very little interest in casual relationships with other people in their surroundings. Curiosity and gossiping are almost not existent; they simply don’t have the energy to waste on this.
I know that I said that they can be loners but this doesn’t mean that old souls can’t have deep and meaning full relationships, but it’s just more likely that they’ll be with each other not only in one lifetime but through several. I think that old souls find young souls selfish, irresponsible and unattractive.
When old souls befriend other people, for the most part it will be with other old souls, allowing them to form bonds between them very quickly. These bonds often last a lifetime as the interests of these souls are very much the same. Young souls are here to create business relations, whilst mature souls are the ones that connect us for our psychological comfort.
In general, old souls have a tendency to only create unions with other old souls that they have shared unions with in their past lives. So often, old souls are misunderstood and any younger souls might think they don’t care; the older soul keeping their distance. A good example of this would be with a petition, the old soul will sign it but they will not march with the rest of the protestors.
Easy Way Out?
I think that a lifetime of experience has allowed old souls to find the easy way to do things; younger souls may see this as laziness and a lack of drive but you know this does have its advantages and its disadvantages because they don’t always follow protocol. Old souls have a gracious manner in dealing with other souls; as such they do tend to understand every type souls better than younger ones. They’re often the ones that have the innovative ideas for doing things but seldom go through this activity as they’ve already done this in the past. One common feature I feel that they all have is an ability to analyse lazy behaviour within them and either prevent this from happening or work through it.
In general, old souls have strong ethical boundaries it’s not for them to be taught by society what is right and what is wrong. This is inborn with them, even as children they seem very grown up.
So often I hear old souls say that they feel older than what they really are and it is not uncommon for them to say that they will not return to earth again. They also prefer detachment to people and this is the reason they are not jealous, envious or possessive.
Like with everything else in life they are very casual with obtaining further education. As such, grades are not paramount to them they are only going for the qualification to satisfy the needs of others. Learning is not important to them unless they have a specific goal in mind.
If we return to our inspirational image we can see the other Brighton West Pier in the background. It’s quite a distance from the Brighton Palace Pier but its there. The old souls have a goal in life, how they achieve that goal can often surprise younger souls out there, they get there on their own time and own pace.
I suppose like our birds they seem part and parcel of our every day, co-existing in nature and try not to focus attention on them self. Yet without them on the wing we would lack that sense of innate knowledge and gentle guidance to the next level.
So the final question is has this helped you to find which you soul you relate to more?
