the other day I was send this article about falling in love with an old soul. It made me laugh as I was remembered of a time, when some new friends of mine and me came up with the idea of printing T-Shirts with the slogan “my soul is old than yours”, because we where so over the pseudo spiritual behavior some people in town showed. It was just for fun – a little insider joke – but it turned out to be true, that so many of the people involved back than where old souls.
You know, for reasons of the geographic powers and the winds at Lake Atitlan, our little place is a high powered energy vortex that attracts a lot of Indigo and Crystal Children, Highly Sensitive and Empathic Beings. And many people have incarnated with this personality traits, because they are old souls, here to support the collective awakening process of human kind into the Golden Age of Aquarius. I liked the authors voice and honesty, and I felt like adding some details to the descriptions. You find them in the orange sections. Hope you enjoy and find valuable news or confiramtions!!
It’s the simple things in life that capture us. Simple living and simple pleasures in life ground us and make us feel all warm and cozy inside. Extravagant dinners, jewelry, and sparkly gifts may be the key to some people’s hearts but not an old soul. Impressing us is so simple, it’s scary. An intimate conversation on the beach with a candle or a night of camping under the stars is like heaven on earth. Give us experiences and most of all, give us your time…
Old souls somehow seam to have a deeper feeling for the profound value that our lifetime has. As old souls are coming with an often very clear and loud vibrating soul purpose, we are stronger aware that our time and undivided attention is definitely the biggest present we can share with others. So truly being together feeds our souls with love.
2 Alone time
Old souls are pretty intense, spiritual people. It’s not a facade or front we put up, but a lifestyle we live to stay connected to ourselves and to our spiritual path. Time to decompress, detach and meditate are crucial to our well being. So if we turn down an invite to a bar once in awhile, don’t take it personal. Instead, understand our need to be with ourselves because there is probably a reason we are needing some alone time.
So many of us old souls are born as highly sensitive people, empathic people or introverts and this personality traits make us more vulnerable to peoples energies. So when there are big shifts going on and people are unstable in their emotions, we sometimes have to retreat. Because not only do we need alone time to stay connected to ourselves, we need it to not fall sick.
As most people only dream when they sleep, we dream constantly. Daydream that is. Sometimes we need a partner to snap us back into reality, but also one who understands our dreaming is what excites us, dreaming inspires us.
But that is not all it does for us, many old souls are actually very capable dream creator. That mean while we are laying lazy at the beach, dreaming pretty things for life, we have the capacity to channel the energetic vibration this dream creates into our personal energy field. Later on in life this things become easily reality for us. The more we are aware of this process, the deeper the results.
ahh, sigh– We love romance and everything that comes with it. Sometimes, expecting a little too much from people trying to win our affections. This can cause some let downs and learning experiences for both partners. Old souls need someone that can pull them out from the clouds when needed and bring them back to a beautiful reality.
Well here we are not quite aligned with our opinions. While I can totally confirm, that most of the old souls I met are really big romantics (even that the way they show it is often received as weird and sometime awkward), I do not agree on needing the other to come back to reality. As old souls our collective job is to grow up fast and take personal responsibility. So it is on us to learn to feel romance, while we have our feed well rooted in the ground!!
I’ve always felt like the “grandma” of my friend group. Throwing on a big comfy sweater, staying in to cook dinner, and snuggling up while someone reads to me would be like, so amazing. Going out is good here and there, but know for us, being comfy with our significant other takes the cake.
In my experience feeling comfortable with somebody else is not only limited to physical relaxation. For an old soul it is mainly important, that we feel emotionally and energetically safe with the other. As our sensitivity demands from us during the day, to be on our toes not to get overwhelmed by other peoples feelings, it is double important for us to have people at home who act self-responsible with their own challenges. 6 Free birds
We want freedom. Freedom to chase whatever is worth chasing to us. Nothing holding us back or stopping us from pursuing our dreams and desires. Rather, someone who encourages us to chase and to succeed. Aside from longing for a stable and simple life, we want room to grow and follow whatever path our spirit is leading us to.
That does not mean we are not capable of deep commitment or faithfulness in our love relationships, just about the opposite. Give an old soul the unlimited space to explore their own being, and they will be totally yours. And they will always come running back to you like happy children, excited to share their story and feelings with you.
7 An unusual approach to life
Not really conforming to the expected way of living, we view the world and our lives as a blank book and we want to write it. I definitely have very philosophical views and it deeply effects all of my relationships. Being with someone who likes that about us is key!
And it is literally build into our brain. Like I sad before, so many old souls are Indigo’s or Crystals and this people have a brain that is differently weird than the collective. That makes perfectly sense within the bigger plan, as we are supposed to be the ones who are dreaming the Golden Age of Humanity into reality, as our collective job!!
8 Not-so material world
Possessions and money are nice, but it is not number one for us. Intellectual conversations and meaningful experiences is what takes our breath away…
By all means, deep connection, honest exchange and gentle communication is more important to old souls than goods, but the world is also a material one. And as we are mostly occupied with rooming around in the energetic realms but still take care of the material, it is equally important not to be with a partner that brings either financial insecurity or a state of “having too much” into the mix!!9 Intuition
You may hear this a lot from an old soul, “I don’t know, I just have this feeling.” Following our hearts more than our minds makes us a bit more in touch with our intuitive side. You can either go with the flow or turn and run, intuitive people can be a bit intimidating. It can be very daunting to some, to have an intuitive partner…especially if the significant other is trying to be sly. Good luck!
And there I think is self-responsibility the most important thing to be aware of!! Personally I have not met an old soul that can be in a true love relationship with a person who is trying to play false or has second agendas. Like I mentioned above, we need to feel safe with the once we share our life with, and people who are dishonest make us go out of balance!! So if want to love an old soul, be brutally honest with them! And if you are an old soul, don’t betray your intuition for a cozy moment on the sofa!! Be patient and true to yourself, and the right someone will come!!
10 We’ve got dreams, big dreams
Idealistic dreams of painting the world like our very own canvas. Ending world hunger or starting a business that benefits people in some positive way is not far from an old souls list of lofty ideas. Helping mankind is on our dreamy To Do List!
Just that they are no random dreams, but the soul contracts we made to be part of the collective awakening process of human kind. So many of the people who are now in their mid 20s to mid 30s are truly the once who will change this world!!
Dear Ones, I hope this insides into the inner world of old souls has given enough information to either identify yourself as such, or identify your partner, friends, family members as such! If you find one or the other of your clan members being an old soul, than this words might give you more clarity about what your beloved ones truly need.
Blessings and Old Soul Love! Edith
