If you have not yet discovered whether you’re an old soul, read some of the revealing signs below.
1. You tend to be a solitary loner.
Because old souls are disinterested in the pursuits and interests of the people in their age groups, they find it dissatisfying to make friends with people they find it hard to relate to. This is one of the major problems Old Souls experience. The result is … old souls tend to find themselves alone a lot of the time. People just don’t cut it for them.
2. You love knowledge, wisdom and truth.
Yep … this seems a little grandiose and overly noble, but the old soul finds himself naturally gravitating towards the intellectual side of life. Old souls inherently understand that knowledge is power, wisdom is happiness and truth is freedom, so why not seek after those things? These pursuits are more meaningful to them than reading up on the latest gossip about Snooki’s latest boyfriend, or the latest football scores.
3. You’re spiritually inclined.
More emotional old souls tend to have sensitive and spiritual natures. Overcoming the confines of the ego, seeking enlightenment and fostering love and peace are the main pursuits of these young-in-body Mother Teresa’s. To them it seems the wisest, most fulfilling use of time.
4. You understand the transience of life.
Old souls are frequently plagued with reminders of not only their own mortality, but that of everything and everyone around them. This makes the old soul wary and at times withdrawn, but wisely dictates the way they live their lives.
5. You’re thoughtful and introspective.
Old souls tend to think a lot … about everything. Their ability to reflect and learn from their actions and those of others is their greatest teacher in life. One reason why old souls feel so old at heart is because they have learnt so many lessons through their own thought processes, and possess so much insight into life situations from their ability to quietly and carefully observe what if going on around them.
6. You see the bigger picture.
Rarely do old souls get lost in the superficial details of getting useless degrees, job promotions, boob jobs and bigger TV’s. Old souls have the tendency to look at life from a birds eye view, seeing what is the most wise and meaningful way to approach life. When confronted with issues, old souls tend to see them as temporary and passing pains that merely serve to increase the amount of joy felt in the future. Consequently, old souls tend to have placid, stable natures as a result of their approach to life.
7. You aren’t materialistic.
Wealth, status, fame, and the latest version of iPhone … they just bore old souls. The old soul doesn’t see the purpose of pursuing things that can be easily taken away from them. Additionally, old souls have little time and interest for the short-lived things in life, as they bring little meaning or long lasting fulfillment for them.
8. You were a strange, socially maladaptive kid.
This is not always the case, but many old souls exhibit odd signs of maturity at young ages. Often, these children are labelled as being “precocious”, “introverted”, or “rebellious“, failing to fit into the mainstream behaviors. Usually, these children are extremely inquisitive and intelligent, seeing the purposelessness of many things their teachers, parents and peers say and do, and either passively or aggressively resisting them. If you can talk to your child like he/she’s an adult – you’ve probably got an old soul on your hands.
9. You just “feel” old.
Before putting a name to what I felt, I experienced certain sensations of simply being an “old person” inside. The feelings that accompany being an old soul are usually: a feeling of world wariness, mental tiredness, watchful patience, and detached calmness. Unfortunately, this can often be perceived as being aloof and cold, which is only one of many Old Soul Myths.
Just as some old people describe themselves as being “young at heart”, so too can young people be “old at heart”.
After a discussion about Old Souls with a fan Terry Hastings, she has graciously send a note with detailed information in regards to the discussion of old souls. I do think its worth the read as her knowledge on the subject is very extended.
Before I download the doc & read it, can I tell you what I know about myself and why I regard myself as an old soul? Compare it with what you got and tell me if I'm right.
- Even as a child very mature, take on responsibilities (as a child, I had to look after my brothers and sisters and took full responsibility from a very young age)
- Being perceived by parents as a difficult child, because they cannot lie to you or fool you, you know what you know and nothing they say will convince you otherwise
- Nt easy to manipulate, even from a young age onwards
- Although identified as extremely bright/high IQ, not interested in school/studies and find it rather boring, just going through the motions for something that has to be done
- Will only further studies in an area that is particularly interesting to you, and never to get a degree or diploma, but rather because you are fascinated by it. Once you have learned what you wanted to learn, you will give up the studies, even though you haven't completed the course
- very creative, even as children
- From a young age onwards, feel as if you don't quite fit in with the crowd (but not really bothered by it, you do your own thing)
- a natural leader (because we simply refuse to follow haha and have no desire to fit into the mould)
- have very few friends (tend to make one, sometimes two very close friends that will be your friends for life)
- as and adult, we tend to go through the motions as expected by society, so as not to stand out and draw any attention. We blend in easily into any group, be it social or work
- not particularly interested in the jobs we do, although we are natural leaders and naturally excell at what we do.
- being bullied in the workplace, because the others perceive you as a threat, although you only want to help and be an advantage to the organisation
- on the flipside of the coin, if you do end up in an organisation where your natural abilities are recognized, you are abused in terms of the amount of responsibility simply shifted your way and the hours you have to work.
- natural perfectionists - we will not settle for poor workmanship
- we are mostly very calm and collected - very few things can surprise or disturb us
- we also have the ability to stay calm in crises/chaos and sort it out without much fuss
- old souls don't trust easily - it takes us a very long time to trust somebody
- if you break the trust of an old soul, you will not easily regain it (for me personally, if you hurt me or break my trust, I will walk away from that relationship and never go back, I will never ever trust you again or even talk to you again. If you pass me in the road, I will walk past you without even looking your way or acknowledging you at all)
- we get hurt very easily, because our expectations of other people are always too high and they can never live up to it. One way or another, we will always get disappointed
- people tend to take advantage of us, because we cannot say no - we always put other people first (which isn't always in our own best interest)
- we have a unique way in dealing with death - we accept it for what it is - the passing on into another realm - not the loss of somebody, but them simply moving on
- for us, money and fame and all that goes with that is not important. We concentrate on what really matters and are more interested in the deeper meaning of things and life
- contrary to belief, we will actually make friends with a young soul (seeker), just to amuse ourselves. Unfortunately, we cannot spend too much time with them, because they tend to drain our energy and gets very irritating after a while
- we are aware of our past lives (most of us will actually refer to past lives)
- we are not interested in travelling to a place to see it for the first time, but rather because you are going back to some place of importance to you (for me, it is Machu Piccu and Pompei, I have been talking about it since I was about 6 years old, and back then very little was known about those places, but I could recall in detail much of what later turned out to be accurate descriptions of the area)
- most of us are aware of other souls within our realm, souls that have not moved on (others refer to as ghosts)
- I have the ability to look into someone's soul, without speaking a single word with them, and immediately make a soul connection or turn my back on them. If we connect, we will be friends for life, if I turn away, no matter what you do, you will never be my friend, because I've seen the darkness in your soul
- We have very close connections to those important to us, and knows something is wrong even before we receive the call
There are much more that I can add to this, but basically that is me. So tell me what you think and then I will download your notes and go through it. I believe that most of what I have said will be in your notes?
I had to smile reading through your note, it was as if I had written it myself . Very interesting indeed. A fact that can be added to it is that old souls very seldom become friends with young or infant souls, we will rather be friends with mature souls. If one does become involved with an infant or young soul, it is to help them move on and learn the lessons they are suppose to. I made it a mission for myself to take on one infant and one young soul and be their mentor.
That is also the other fact, many other souls see old souls as their mentor and people always turn to us for advise.
An old soul that has a child with an old soul as well, recognise that early on in the child and will protect and shield that child from possible harm (although this isn't necessary as the child can do it themselves)
Often we are told that a perfect job for us would be psychologist - I tend to disagree with that. A psychologist mostly has a touch of madness themselves - and are very confused about life in general. They treat patients and through doing that work through their own issues. Old souls don't have that problem - we've been there, done that.
Anyway, I'm getting ahead of myself, will make a neat and more complete list Monday and send to you.
· Neels I have to say I find this extremely interesting. In the past hour I quickly jotted down some thoughts, because I know once I go and sit down to record it all, I would have forgotten half of it. Here is a few more:
All old souls love music, but we have very specific taste in music, we generally will include all genres, as long as the music speaks to us
Old souls have a natural ability to pick up languages easily, we do not battle to learn a new language and mostly understand what people say, no matter which language they speak
Most old souls are what is generally referred to as a jack of all trades and master of none - we can do anything and do it reasonably well, sometimes very well. I gather this is because it used to be a particular trade in a previous life that we just choose not to do in this life, but we can still do it. As for myself, I worked a lot of different trades since I left school. I started off as secretary/personal assistant then became a pre-school teacher, then worked in the hospitality trade as chef/caterer as well as FOH manager. I then moved to the retail trade and worked as receiving manager and currently I am the manager of a forecourt and Select shop. I still do catering part time and remedial teaching for less fortunate children.
Most people are drawn to old souls. We are also particularly good with children and old people.
Acceptance is very much part of the old soul - we are not critical of other religions or viewpoints
Old souls are very seldom politically inclined - we are born politically indifferent because we know that in the end all politics are the same and all politicians inevitably become corrupt
Most old souls have an inner knowledge on how to heal with herbs, spices, vitamins and minerals. We just know what is good for us and what we lack - that doesn't mean that we always take care of ourselves
Maths and languages come easy to old souls - been there done that is the motto
In business old souls are innovative and can quickly come up with new ideas and solutions to problems - but we will never take the glory for it, we prefer to blend in, not stand out
Old souls are often described as butterfly personalities because we move from one thing to the next or one job to the next as if we have no purpose - this is mostly to either get out of a situation that has become unbearable at your current job or simply because we have become bored with it. I know that I stay max 6 months in one job, it is only the last 6 years that I have stayed with one employer, and it simply is because there has been a lot of major changes within the organisation every year with a lot of challenges every time. Old souls embrace change, we are not scared of it because we already know that nothing under the sun is new
Most old souls are close to nature
Most old souls I know has had a near death experiences, although it doesn't happen to all of us
Old souls will carry scars from a previous life - either be born with it or get it in a different manner in this life. I was born with a mark on my leg, a very distinctive mark. I also have a scar from my right hip all the way across my body to where it ends at my right rib cage. I have a scar across my face as well as a scar across my hand. I believe all of these are scars that I had in past lives and thus I'm having it again.
Old souls will recognise enemies from past lives and will either steer clear of them or will be bitter enemies in this life.
Old souls can recognise evil in others and will steer clear of them
Some old souls are light carriers and will actively seek out other light carriers. We have a duty to spread the light and will keep doing that as best as we can. You are a light carrier as well - you heal souls and by that you spread the light. Sometimes the light is so bright in some of us, that other souls see it as well. I believe that is the case with you - your light is so bright others see it and naturally drift towards you. With that in mind you also have to be careful not to exhaust yourself to much, because I believe sometimes you take on so much, that you battle to keep up with it and spread yourself to thin.
And with that I just realised what the urgent message was that I absolutely had to give you - Do not spread yourself to thin and take on so much that you cannot keep up with it, you are exhausting your soul and is in danger of extinguishing the light. You still have much to do and many people to help. The work you do is important and the need is great. I know I sound like a crazy old witch, but thats how it sometimes work with me, I need to talk to you a bit before I realise exactly what it is I have to tell you.
Take care my friend and have a peaceful weekend
I am aware that it has been a while since one of my last notes. Nevertheless, you know that sometimes taking time out to reflect can be just as important if not more as taking a course of action.
Through this deep reflection, I decided to do this note because I have found that a number of old soul friends have had similar difficulties in their lives.
Looking at their circumstances, I feel that individually their patience has been tested. We always feel that we are up against time....always in a hurry to get somewhere, do something or be with someone....yet the idea of time is a ‘man made construct’. As in the pocket watch and key we are all looking to find that something that will help us understand ourselves better and bring us to a different inner place. I guess that for old souls patience has to be that explanation.
Parents who have children that are old souls will tell you that it’s very easy to bring them up because these children already have a deep understanding of what is right and wrong such as it being wrong to steal and lie. Invariably, these children are very self reliant and do not need the constant stimulation that we can see in other sorts of young soul children.
It is all relative.....I know that from some people’s perception that old souls could been seen to be loners; they do their own thing and aren’t bothered by the social norms of society. They also have very little interest in casual relationships with other people in their surroundings. For them, curiosity and gossiping are almost not existent; they simply don’t have the energy to waste time 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.
Old souls just don't have the energy to bother with other souls. They just want to do their own thing and not being bothered, but unfortunately in life they are not that lucky.
With many of the people that I have researched they have often been graduates or post graduates who have finished their studies and started a career. Initially, their careers seemed to go well until they unknowingly started to threat the younger souls in their work environment. If there is one thing about old souls is that they have a mature and calm way to handle a crisis compared to the actions of younger souls as for them their past previous life experiences stand them in good stead.
Some of the ways that young souls will feel threatened is that often older souls will be more efficient, better at problem solving and have good leadership skills. This jealously means that for them rather than have team efficiency it is better for them as individuals to force them out of that work environment and blame old souls for their failures.
In a number of cases, many old souls have had to put their own stable careers on hold to be there and help young souls who are keen to follow their own usually unstable career.
I have seen this time and time again where the net result has been that the young soul can often only pay for the basics and never has enough money left over for the emergencies of life.
Quite a number of old souls also end up as caregivers to their parents, spouses or if appropriate their disabled children. The compassion that they have can be marked by the additional financial responsibilities that this places on them in their day to day life and sadly in the end they have to acknowledge that they cannot fix the world, that sometimes it is better that they are looked after by professionals, for example in a care home.
As with everyone as we are all getting older and develop health issues, however with older souls I would say that stress and external factors play a significant part in their health problems contributing to the deterioration of their health. Where I live I know that often due to financial factors accessing efficient private health provision is not always an option which means that older souls are often forced back to rely on governmental health based systems which sadly are not always as effective as they should be. In turn this means that for them it can take them months to recover, jobs have been lost and forcing them to look at again for new employment.
“Let’s re-invent the wheel” this could be the slogan of younger soul groups! They are so often keen to change the existing systems but forget the merits of some parts that they are throwing out which in turn leaves older souls confused and in inner conflict.
Why are they in such a hurry? I guess that there is about the newness of change and the drive and power that goes with this. Change for change sakes which mean that by creating chaos, big confusion and fights is like a hurricane. People especially old souls get caught up in this yet when the storm has passed where are the young souls? They have walked away from the eye of the storm, the chaos that they have brought. Not to take the responsibility of their actions and consequences but to blame the older souls around them. All the ‘storm’ detritus has been dumped on the old soul.
Usually I like to give some of the fans a preview of my notes and ask if they’ve any suggestions to add to the note. I had to smile with Bob’s suggestion of the "bullshit filter".
As you would expect, it’s very difficult to try and lie to an old soul or to manipulate them. They have the innate ability to see the big picture and analyse the situation.
One good example of this is the “Do as I say” rule that parents often use with children. The child may question why they have to follow this rule only to be greet with “Just do it”.
Yet the next day the child is completely perplexed as the parent does exactly the same action that that he or she told the child not to do. In doing so, the child does not feel that they have the same level of trust and in the longer term all respect will be lost towards their parents due to these double standards.
You might have seen me in this note writing questions? I guess that therefore, it is no surprise to you as the reader that old souls love to ask the question why? It’s not about just accepting what the status quo is but wanting to have a full and complete understanding. So here we come back again to what I was saying at the start. Deep inner reflection is one of the keys for old souls. To reflect, analyse and have a gut feel about a situation so that they can give a fair and evaluated feedback.
More recently, I had a consultation with an old soul and this really did highlight to me that their needs were basic:
Finally, reflecting on the inspirational image, I have to wonder what keys we use unlock our own can of worms as old souls. Time and time again, it is about the ability for old souls to take that deep breath again and have patience. I do appreciate that sometimes it can feel a frustrating thing but at the end of the day these are the life lessons that old souls have to work through. So with every minute and hour that man has constructed it doesn’t mean that old souls are not entitled to enjoy their lives. They just need to make the most of what they have, reflect and take time out for themselves too.
I have decided to do this article because a few of my Old Soul Friends have the same problems at work with management. The corporate or business world is mainly driven by young souls. For some reason young souls do see old souls as a threat.
You might ask why this specific photo with the article? I think Old Souls can be as isolated in the working place as this mosque on the mountain.
I all the cases that I have seen the old souls where traumatized with threats, ignored and even their shifts where given “away” to other employees. Why was this done? Simply because they were in authoritive positions and could do this. The old souls where under a lot of stress and pressure because of this.
Under the enormous stress they were under, their health was affected. They had various illnesses that did surface. I none of these cases there was a logical explanation why they did get sick. Needless to so say medication in these cases did not work either.
Sadly in these cases there are no quick and easy solutions. The Young Souls do target the Old Souls and they make it unbearable for them to work. What happens at the end of the day is that the Old Souls do resign or their contracts are ended.
If we return to the inspirational image we can almost feel the isolation of the mosque. There will never be a good working relationship between old and young souls. My advice to people in hostile work situations is that they need to get out of there. We all know it’s not easy these days to find new work but rather this then be sick and traumatized.
I’m often asked if there are reoccuring paterns in the old soul group. Here are some of the paterns that old souls have to deal with.
I've decided to use this 'lion in the water' inspirational image in the Okavango Park in Botswana. We all know that cat species aren't very fond of water but when survival is a must.....they'll jump straight into the water!
I think old souls don’t always concentrate enough to prevent obstacles in their lives. They often jump in and do things with a passion just to get the “job” done.
Giving And Caring
Often put other people first and then neglect to look after their own well being. This can happen every day in every aspect of life.
Had a difficult romantic life with a lot of pain and disappointment because the partners did not meet their standards. Old souls do have large expectations from their partners and disappointment does not sit well with them.
Soul Mate Relationship
Quite likely had a soul mate relationship and due to this can’t move on with the next relationship. At the end of the day none of the relationships lasts.
Out Of Control Situations
Things just seem to happen to them and around them, often becoming very dramatic through the seemingly extreme reactions of others.
Going from one bad relationship to another or more likely in work environment, go from one unstable employer to the next one and at the end of the day they sit without a job.
Trouble Connecting With Family
Due to reoccurring unpleasant events old souls will avoid family. They will only forgive so many times, the next time they do decide this case is not worth the effort.
Different From Other People
They will rather keep quiet and walk away than end up in long arguments when they know what is right.
Ask any parent who have a psychic child what a nightmare it is to rear them. They simply just know things and lying to these children is a disaster because they know what is the truth.
Emotions And Passions
They have deeper emotions and passions than most people. Friendships between old souls are more intense that with any other soul groups. When an old soul starts a project they will finish it more likely than other souls groups. The difference here is the old souls would not be at the top ten of the class but the project would be completed.
People will either adore then or hate them, regardless that they treat people the equally.
They have an inner creative passion and they can live this out in a career or in their leisure time.
Suffer lots of jealousy from others and at the end of the day the old soul can’t understand why this is happening. They do their own thing and go on with their lives.
They are often perceived wrongly because they have a honest way of saying things, offence where not their intention. Younger soul groups do not understand the old souls and think they are rude.
They feels if they don’t have much of a free will and events are controlled by some outside force.
They often feel ‘stuck’ because events just keep on happening to them time after time. I think a very valid example of this is to keep your job with the shrinking worldwide economy.
They often feel rejected because they want meaningful relationships and other souls groups don’t understand this. Other soul groups do expect old souls to lower their standards for “meaningful” relationships.
If I return to the inspirational image I can only say take the bull by the horns or like the cat to the water, work through the “obstacles”, make the best of it. But do understand that other soul groups will never understand old souls. Try to obtain a balance and live in harmony.
One of the fans on the Fan Page asked me to do a note on this. Sadly when a relationship goes wrong for an old soul it goes very wrong. People think old souls are simply moving on but there are a lot of emotions involved for an old soul.
If we look at our inspirational image you might ask yourself but why the chickens. I think stay with me and you will understand better when the article is finished.
On my grandmothers farm there was one specific hen that was breeding month in and out. Although, not a single egg hatched. One day my grandmother informed me that she caught the hen stealing another egg and she was sat this time only on the stolen egg. The egg hatched and she raised the chick. The chick became a beautiful cockrell at the end of the day. The hen never permitted the cockrell to socialise with other chickens and she made sure he slept with her every evening. This went on till the hen died of old age.
Relationships that can be ended
Old souls have intense relationships with a lot of love, empathy and trust. Once this trust is severed there are serious obstacles ahead and it is very seldom that these relationships can be mended. Once the old soul has made the decision to end their relationship there are a number of emotions involved. Disgust, anger and hate are often the most prevalent. The person feels cheated out of a relationship where the other partner broke the trust and couldn'tt re-establish the trust. This can happen when there is a third person involved, abuse, lies etc.
In some cases, there's no remorse about the trust that was broken and this doesn't sit well with the old soul. For many old souls, they have a lot of emotions to deal with, the love might still be there. Nevertheless, it’s the other negative emotions that help the old soul to move on. It can take years for the person to heal completely.
Relationships that can’t be ended
Then you get the relationships that can’t be ended because of mental and physical illness at a later stage in their lives. In today's world, we often expect society, children and/or a healthy parent to look after a sick parent.
With the trust gone, often the respect for the person is also gone. The old soul is forced to care of the sick partner who they no longer have feelings for, apart from anger and disgust. It is expected from the healthy person to do this with love and compassion that is no longer there.
At the end of the day the old soul ends up feeling guilty and ashamed about these emotions which were not their doing in the first place. The person end up being traumatised more than once, first when the trust was broken and now the guilt. Is there a way to remedy this? No, when the love, trust and respect is gone the only thing a person can do is accept their own feelings and not feel guilty about this. It is not the old soul that started these emotions.
If we return to the inspirational image, some people do end up as the mother hen but unlike in the case of the hen, these old souls are “forced” to do the hen work. It all comes back to the Master Plan “All parties involved with the decision making, agree and accept the “contract” terms and conditions.” In the end we did agree to come and learn this lesson.
I was asked by one of the fans to do an article on old soul friendships. Why does this happen and how does this affect our relationships with these people? There are numerous old souls that belong to the Fan Page.
If we look at our inspirational image we see a lot of people diving into the Hudson River and swimming almost like a team. It is pretty much the same with the old soul connections; they form a team and the friendship simply just work.
Long before our births, we’ve decided in conjunction with our Guides and Angels on the following:
· When will we come to earth?
· For how long will we be here?
· Who our parents, family and friends will be?
· What lessons are we going to learn?
· What age we will get to?
All parties involved with the decision making, agree and accept the “contract” terms and conditions. If it was meant that two people should befriend each other it does no matter how late in their lives this will happen.
Characteristics of these Connections
People become instant friends and these friendships can last a life time. They will often contact each other when support is most needed and the person making the contact is not even aware of the needed support. When old souls do connect for the first time it seems that they are friends for years and can’t stop talking.
There is a definite deeper connection than just friends. In these friendships there is a deeper understanding, empathy and love that aren’t common in normal friendships. When these old souls connect it also feels if they’ve known each other all their lives.
Should friends work on a project, each party knows what is expected of them and the work is finished in a record time.
There are five soul ages for the people that are new to the Fan Page.
Furthermore we do on average seven life cycles per soul age before we move on to the next level. It is no co-incidence that we do meet.
Why does this happen?
These meetings can be personal via the internet. It was decided with the “contract” that we should meet at some stage. Often one of the friends will be the master and give guidance to the other friend. These roles can often be reversed too. In the end this is about the evolvement of the soul and lessons that need to be learned.
If we can return to the image all that I can say is dive in and make the best of this friendship.
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?
