Old Soul Faq!
This story is meant for questions about old souls, so, if you ask some questions i answer them here as well as i can. I'm not all-knowing, certainly not, but i know enough.
How there can be old and young souls?
Well... everybody knows that human population on the earth is bigger than it has ever been and its still growing. If you would believe that every person has a soul then its natural that souls have to be born to keep up with our population growth. These new souls are, so called, young souls... But old souls are the ones that are born very long time ago or have lived a lot of lives.
What makes old and young souls different?
First, none of them are better than the others, difference is in experience of lived lives. Some old souls have lived only few lives and have slightly different knowledge base than the souls that have lived a lot of lives, its complicated and I'm not gone go through it right now.
Young souls can adjust more easily to changes of the world, for example, souls born after year 2000 will learn quickly to live in harmony with current world... as for old souls, they will find it a lot more difficult. Because the lives they have lived in last era, old souls are adjusted to live in there, and it takes one or two lives to get a grip in new one, depends on their soul age. That is why a lot of old souls feel trapped and left out in this world, their minds are confused cause what has been clear to them (their mind and souls) for last era suddenly don't apply.
For example, when old man is put to live in the different culture-language, he will find it more difficult to adjust but if you put a young boy to live in a different culture-language, he would adjust quite easily to a new one.
How old is old?
I have find that most efficient way to label soul ages is in what place of time they are from first soul to last.
<-- older younger-->
| first soul last soul |
A picture for the ones who need visuals.
(funny, isn't it? :P)
So, i would call old ones souls who are born in first third. Middle-aged are second third and younger souls last third.
What abilities are common to old souls?
Most common ones, that all older or middle-aged souls have are:
/Knowing the truth/ without thinking about it. This one is probably the one that old souls use most often and usually passively. It is a feeling old soul have when he/she is thinking about something and for the ones who don't know about this ability will seem like a bad or good feeling about something. Alongside with it they also feel how people they are communicating with are thinking about them, how they feel towards them. Even when other person is smiling and seems like a good friend, old souls know the truth, even when they don't show that they know. Its often hard for old souls, because talking to people that don't think very good about them is very uncomfortable and old souls probably avoid those people whenever they can.
/Seeing the future/ is quite common too, it may not be always clear and about seemingly important things. Mostly old souls see things that matter to them, not to other persons. Even if they would tell it to somebody else, they probably would not understand cause the thing they saw is probably meant for them. This future seeing may come in very different ways, a feeling, a dream (there are 2 different dreams: abstract and direct. In abstract they see things that need a little bit translating, in direct way they see the way it happens, 100% accurately and usually through they own eyes. There can be mixes too but its probably rare thing) or so called vision (this one comes when awake and flashes images through your eyes, these ones are direct too).
/Sensing things/. This one is most widely usable. You can sense from person diseases to, for example, history of ob
/Energy channeling/. This one needs a lot of concentration too. There are a lot of types of energies and a lot of things old soul needs to know before giving, getting or channeling energy. Without knowing, he/she can do more harm than good. This ability is quite dangerous if you don't know what you do, because, it affects directly others (not like sensing things and so on).
/Lucid dreaming/. Whether person is a stalker or a dreamer he/she will probably develop some level of it at the end of life. This ability is actually used by everybody, even young souls, the difference is mastering it. This ability is probably the most powerful one, and of course the most dangerous. At the latest stages of it, its not even life or death situation. Persons soul (so called) may never born again and be trapped forever. But with lucid dreaming person can actually go or do anything they want and even walk among people who are awake (and all the people see that person). Only limitation is your imagination and amount of energy that is reserved for it.
/Knowledge about past lives/. This is what it sounds like, it may be as a feeling, dream or anything in between. But what is constantly known by old soul is the feeling of experience of past lives. Sensing approximately how old is he/she (soul). Common feeling for old souls is, when in crowd, they feel like in a crowd of children. To them, their current life age is probably less important than their soul age. And this feeling dominates most of the time.
/Personal force/. This i something that is hard to explain. People may call it luck or something like that. Its something that don't let bad things, that are not meant to happen, come to life. People with a lot of personal force never get killed by accidents, sometimes its like world is making the means available for that person to do what is important. It also gives courage to do what is necessary in a time of emergency. They also don't get affected that much by bad energy and stuff like that. Personal force is one of the only energy/forces that cant be affected by other energy.
/Communication with forces/. There are different kind of forces everywhere and older souls can sense them or communicate with them quite easily, of course, when the force cooperates. Nothing more to say.
/Accessing information/ is quite useful too. Every though and action of every person or force is saved and can be accessed anytime. Of course, like every other more important abilities, this one need purity of thoughts and everything related to that. With this, old soul can know everything he/she wants.
Density of these abilities vary on souls, some can do more some ability but have weaker sense of other abilities. The most important thing about using abilities are understanding it. You cant use ability when you don't understand it, same as a baby cant use a computer.
What i have noticed is that old soul share similar sense of humor too :)
Does these abilities are only related to souls age?
No, the truth is, actually young soul can have these abilities too and even stronger ones than old soul... this only happens when young soul is taught by old soul who has deep knowledge of the world and its rules, a true human, so to speak.
Difference is that older souls develop these abilities even when they don't have a clue about souls, the older they get in this life the more their body is adjusted to this world and soul and the stronger the abilities get.
Young souls don't develop these by themselves, they need a good environment or a teacher. Since younger souls are more acceptable to new settings, the are more vulnerable to corruption. That seems to be the common path for young souls right now. Since the world right now is built up to corrupt then few young souls escape it.
How to know others soul age?
Its often true that people can sense others soul age only when their soul ages are similar or older than the other person. So, young souls cant sense how old is a soul older than them. They probably sense that that soul is old but can sense nothing more. Of course there are exceptions, like i said before, young souls can be taught... if they are wise enough they probably can sense older souls too. But that depends strongly about that old soul, how much does it have defenses and does it let you sense it.
I have heard quite a lot that being old soul is confused with people who grow up too fast or have other similar related preferences... that doesn't mean that they are old souls.
