HI

This little quizwas sent to me by an empath friend from South Africa.A lot of you are going to find this very on point for you. It isn't so much a test as a validation of some of the things that are running through your mind and that you see as part of you. There is a lot happening now in this new year of 2016. The old energy is fading away and you may have felt some anxiety at the end of 2015. A lot of people have been feeling the new energy POURING into this world at this time and the Awakening is picking up pace and strength. It is important to keep grounded and focused on who and what we are, empaths and Lightworkers. Many of us will feel the difference in frequencies and that we are not "normal" nor "from around here". These changes are mentioned in Dolores Cannon's book "The Three Waves of Volunteers and The New Earth" which you can purchase on line and see her YouTube video on this subject as well. I have the video at my YouTube channel 1111 Angelsat this link Dolores Cannon. I hope that this helps you to realize that you are not alone in feeling like this and are part of something that includes many others who are working right along side of you on this mission.

How can you tell if you are an old soul?Are there differences in traits or behaviors? What signs can I look for that can help me differentiate the difference?

Generally speaking, we are all old souls, but some of us have been here longer than others.

The word old is only relative to time.Because time is linear and our souls are eternal, 10,000 years would be the blink of an eye.

Dolores Cannon believes that we need to incarnate many, many times as inanimate objects, plants and animals before we can become human.Then, as humans, we still need to incarnate many, many times to learn all of the lessons we came here for.For example, according to Cannon, we all had to be an air molecule and a drop of water to learn what its like to work together as ONE.

16 Ways To Tell If You Are An Old Soul


1. You understand many of lifes deeper lessons.

For some people, it is hard to fathom that the soul of a child may be much older than the soul of his or her parents. For these particular people, this is a sign that their soul might be younger than yours. When you begin to understand why you keep incarnating to this 3rd dimensional reality, it becomes similar to the movie, Groundhog Day, where Phil wakes up each day to find out that its still February 2nd until he learns how to remove his ego and starts doing kind deeds for others.

Once you realize that time, space, energy and matter are 3rd dimensional products, the theory of time becomes irrelevant, thus the theory of how old your soul is also becomes irrelevant.

But for the sake of understanding how old your soul may be, well continue!

2. You are in touch with your natural abilities or have an extreme interest in these abilities.

Some people are born with innate gifts, such as special healing abilities or psychic abilities.The truth is that we all possess these abilities, but an older soul is more in tune with how to access and implement these abilities in the name of humanity. If you dont have any particular ability, but have a strong interest in them, this is simply your soul trying to recall these abilities that you may have had in a previous lifetime.

3. You become spiritually aware.

Everyone is pure consciousness, but many people have a difficult time understand what this means.Your soul is pure consciousness and love.It has a unique understanding of how the matrix is being played on this planet and understands that everything we do as a collective will help to facilitate the awakening of others.

4. You understand the importance forgiveness.

Some people are old souls who still have much to learn because they are trapped inside the box with their ideologies, are stubborn or have not learned the importance of forgiveness. By forgiving yourself and others, we can release any karma between these people.

5. Youre able to transcend ego.

Its nearly impossible for anyone to completely transcend ego 100% of the time but simply being aware of our ego and how it plays against unity consciousness is a definite sign on an old soul. On the other side, there is no ego.During your life review, you will re-live your ego and will see how it affected others, as well as yourself.At this point in time, you will probably make a soul contract with the hopes of overcoming ego and atoning for whatever ego issues you had in your previous incarnation.


6. Youre able to transcend materialism.

Money and materialism are products of this 3rd dimensional reality and its easy to succumb to materialism, especially when its in your face through advertising, programming and peer pressure. An older soul realizes that money is non-existent on the other side and it generally takes away from who we truly are as spiritual beings.Those who are older souls will generally use money as a tool to either help facilitate their spiritual progression through spiritual retreats or by possibly creating a lavish feng shui home decorated with spiritual meaning versus the most luxurious furnishings.They may also use their money to help others who are less fortunate.

7. You are able to understand the concept that your body is a shell for your soul.

Before you were born, you not only chose your parents, you also chose your life situations and challenges that would help to facilitate your spiritual growth while atoning for any previous karma. The body that you are currently in is simply a vessel for your soul.Your name is what your soul currently refers itself as, but in previous lifetimes, you had many different names and you have lived many previous lives as either a male or a female.Your name and title are both associated with ego because ultimately, you are infinite consciousness and we are all on the same team.


8. You seem to have a special connection to eras long before you were born.

Did you ever watch an old movie or see some artwork from a specific era in time and have a connection to that era?Chances are, you lived a previous life during that time period and this is your cellular memory letting you know!

9. You have an understanding of what you need to do to complete your spiritual progression.

Just by making it this far, you are more awakened than most people on this planet.You have an understanding of Universal laws and what is left to do on your soul contract.Even if you are not specifically sure of either, your higher self and spirit guides will continue lead you in the right direction.

10.You have a strong feeling that home isnt Earth.

Did you ever look at a random area of the sky and star at an unknown star for no particular reason?Do you have a special connection with specific star systems such as the Pleiades or Orions Belt?Do wars and corruption make you feel uneasy, as if they didnt exist where you originally came from?Are you one of the souls who volunteered to come here at this specific point in time to help with the Earths ascension?If you answered yes to any of these questions, then chances are, Earth is not your home planet.

11. You tend to be a loner.

The stigma on the word loner is often condescending, but those who are old souls are merely looking for other fragments of themselves and will often distance themselves from younger souls who need more incarnations into a 3rd dimensional planet. Older souls will seek out other like-mided people because theres a comfort and familiarity with these types of people who will help to facilitate each others spiritual progression.

12. You have a rebellious nature.

Whether you rebel from religion, laws or anything else, this is a sign that your soul knows the only true laws the Laws of the Universe.While you respect the reasoning and intention behind laws and religion, you might not be compelled to use these as absolute laws when you know there are a set of higher laws that are intended to facilitate our spiritual progressions.

13. You have a burning desire to attain truth and inner wisdom.

Many older souls can easily see through the lies weve been taught through religion, politics and through our educational facilities.While they realize they are all one with the universe, they also want the truth exposed to help other peoples awakening process.They also continue to seek knowledge in the spiritual, metaphysical and esoteric fields and will absorb this information much easier than anything they were taught in school.

14. You are not controlling of others.

Older souls are more accepting, not just of other people, but of circumstances as well.For example, while you dont approve of the corruption within politics, you understand how the corruption will help to awaken other people to the truth.You respect the free will of others and are more likely to use tact than verbal demands of others.You tend to be more of a team player than anything else.

15. You sense a separation between yourself and the real world.

As you transcend ego and materialism, you find yourself living a different lifestyle.While this lifestyle is unique to your current incarnation, there also seems to be a familiarity of the direction youre heading.

16. You are curious whether youre an old soul or not.

Many young souls wouldnt ask this question or much less be concerned about it.While many older souls arent concerned either, for different reasons, they simply know theyre old souls, but its nice to have affirmations that coincide with your spiritual progression.

There are many lessons we have learned throughout our lifetimes, all of which has culminated into this particular incarnation.All of your previous life incarnations are embedded into your cellular memory and can be recalled through past life regressions.Most of the people on this planet are old souls, yet many remain unawakened and still have a lot more to learn and will need several more incarnations to a 3rd dimensional planet.

Many of those who are awakened will probably move on to their next level of spiritual progression.Its important to remember that this is not a race because in the end, we all win.Enjoy every millisecond in this incarnation because this may be the last time youll ever experience a 3rd dimensional reality!

Thanks, Bing. This was excellent.

I am still having trouble with #14, despite knowing I'm not here to fix people, but really related to the rest of it very, very much.

The funny thing is a psychic told me I was a very young soul. ;-)

Thank you so much Bing. I've come to realize in this life, I am a very old soul. I have been told this is my "last go around." After my awakening, I have been working on coming into acceptance. Not an easy path for me, but I have had so much help along the way. I've found if I walk in reverence, hold each moment as a blessing, and allow love to illuminate my path, my life flows with the divine that I am. May all be blessed...

In numerology, I have no karmic debt numbers (what would denote that?) and my life lesson numbers are all 0 (zero), meaning that I have nothing to learn here, just experience and do what I wish with my time here. I believe this means that I obtained enlightenment in my last life? So why would I have been reincarnated on Earth if I have no karma to clear or lessons to learn?Furthermore, I was born a week late. I was supposed to be born on Christmas Day but I was born on New Year's Day. My mother was abused (physically and likely verbally too) by my father when she was pregnant with me (physically just pushed by him I think, so no direct damage to the fetus I don't think, though she won't talk about it). I think the baby inside her picked up on the abuse and bad vibes of the outer world and literally didn't want to come out. I would have stayed in longer, because they had to force her into labor (break her water and it took 3 days before I finally arrived).I believe that it's possible that God changed the soul that was in my mom's fetus before I was born, due to the abuse my mom was experiencing. In other words, I am a different person than if my mom hadn't been abused during her pregnancy.I checked the numerology of the date I was supposed to be born and there is a karmic debt number of 19, which happens to be one of my lucky numbers in this life.I feel that I was born with a completely clean slate. I felt so angelic as a child. My mom said I was so good, well-behaved, and never cried or acted out. I was very sensitive and empathic as a child, always observing others and making internal notes to myself.But people's egos and mistreatment of me was felt as abuse and I internalized it all, kept it all in. I felt wiser than the adults I knew, including the ones who were controlling and abusing me. I wanted to and tried to stick up for myself but I thought it was pointless - their ego against my goodness wasn't a congruent match and wasn't worth the fight, because I would have been doing what was not my true nature. though my intellect and reasoning was far more advanced than theirs and I could see this and made note of it.But this was frustrating and I slowly gathered a baggage of negativity, trauma experiences, and my own wrongdoings (which I was always so much harder on myself than others).My goodness of blindly listening to authority and adults came to a halt in puberty when I began questioning what I was told I was supposed to do. I had better ways of doing, understanding, or figuring things out! I had inventive ideas and philosophized on deep topics when I was 13/14 years old. I struggled doing what others told me because I felt that I was responsible enough to guide myself and I couldn't stand rules (or anything) that I saw as pointless. I wanted to govern myself and there was no stopping me. I was unable to do what someone told me if I did not morally agree with it.I feel that I developed karma in this lifetime and that is what I'm trying to release right now, as well as awakening to the reality of this world, what initially caused it, what needs to change, and where we are heading if we don't. I started awakening back when I was 14, but getting controlled and grounded for it and hence rebelling against it, I went down the wrong path, and ended up with a nervous breakdown at age 18 and being medicated for over 15 years, which halted the awakening (like putting something in the freezer), and now I'm completing that awakening.I am in constant physical pain and hypersensitive. I cannot function in this world the way it is run. But I am not strong enough or desire to try to help change it. I don't care what happens to me because I have awakened and that was my goal.I don't understand why I'm here, or where I came from if I am not from Earth. I don't care to know either because there is no truth that anyone can prove here as humans, being subjective, including myself. I don't believe anything but I also believe anything's possible.

I'm a very old soul. This whole article relates to me. I chuckled through the whole thing. Thank you for sharing it. I know I will not pass this way again though. I have decided this will be my last trip. The early 1800's were my favorite time but the times they have changed! The author is correct on many of their points. Until lessons are learned, human beings are destined to return. Physics does answer some questions of the universe. Man is evolving. It is man's humanity that needs salvation. There is a connection between this article and the Angel materials. I'm finding a home here.

Thank you for posting that fascinating article. I recently watched a video about the old soul on Youtube. I'm not sure if I'm an old soul or not but I found the material presented to be compelling. Here's that video: https://youtu.be/RDEY_qCQY6M

I know this forum post is about a year old. But I'm glad to see it pop up again as it was very enlightening. I think I pretty much agree with all 16 of the old soul traits noted. It really helped clarify why I feel the way I do. Thanks for sharing.
