What you grandmother said an expression.
An old soul: Someone who seems to do stuff right in life, like they have learned all of lifes lessons, like they have secret knowledge... (like they
have lived life before and remember experiences and is drawing on them in daily experiences.)
A good example is the child who seems older than its birthyears, expressing a maturity that is usually seen far beyond the age in years of the
that's a good example... but what gets me as i was growing up, is that the adults had overreaching expectations of the child...
I for one would rather have correspondence with the spirits around the house and walk & talk to Nature in the nearby city park rather than learn
school subjects, engross oneself in kids TV, go to Saturday movie matinees unless they were Sci-Fi types of movies with that customary woo-woo 'space
Slap-Stick was so crude and un-funny, it was almost a torture to watch, but one had to watch that popular stuff, because if you didn't -> you were
effectively putting a sign-on-your-back saying 'weirdo'.
The following is a brief description of the characteristics of five basic soul levels. Each level has many lifetimes of lessons to teach us wisdom
through trial and error.
THE OLD SOUL
OLD SOULS live and let live. They seek the route of least
resistance...they're individualistic and usually easy going. They have an inner knowing of the waste of time in pursuing fame and fortune and
therefore create the appearance of being "laid back." Old souls are highly competent - even in roles they don't particularly like. They tend to
choose work that is pleasant and undemanding, leaving them free to pursue their desired goals easily...unless the job adds to the spiritual search.
They may or may not seek higher education... but definitely will seek it if they sense it's needed for their chosen path. Old souls create confidence
in animals. And their choice of medical care tends to be alternative and holistic. Old souls are here to teach others their spiritual understandings.
Their philosophies and writings are simple and easy to read. Old souls religion is far reaching and has no
label. A grove of trees is a sacred place to them. They seldom cling to dogma and prefer personal spiritual practices. However, old souls are wise
enough to be discreet in their religious practices and know how to pass in public undetected. They focus on searching for the spiritual truth and have
a finer sense of knowing what is true than any other souls level. Old souls all over the world share the experience of emptiness and a longing for
that feeling of home.
Can you give us a link to that detailed explaination?
to the general thread,
Old Souls, at least in my realization, was never focused in the here-&-now
i was more interested in philosophy, space, religion at 10-13 than
smoking-in-the-boys-room kinda things.
Teen sports activity was only a 'fallout' from my Yoga training...
scrying & induced trance, hypnosis/meditation were normal activities...
but hidden to a degree from the outsiders.
except for the 2 'beatnicks' i was familiar with back then
Once in AIT, the Army schooling after boot camp, I did a dramatic OBE-
Astral Projection act, and the barracks was abuzz the next day with the
sighting of a 'ghost' the night before... I had already 'known' that i was
once a stone-age medicine-man in my most recent past life. but that kinda talk gets one shunned, so you keep silent about it...at least when i was 17
just a few things to cast a light on how this 'old-soul' ventured in the world,
an aquaintance, friend once said he thought i was a future-throwback...
perhaps he intuited that and old-soul shaman from antiquity would come to be needed in the near future world/community, and if the systemic
collapse of the western worlds financial systems causes the broader wrecking & collapse of today's social structures... then a return to a shamanic
world might come about ...'future-throwback', indeed
