Yet another interesting discussion going on in our Forum. We are talking the Michael Messages and how he describes soul development. I certainly resonate with the phases of the soul. I just had a grandson born and instantly sense that he is a very old soul. I don’t know exactly what it is about people that tells me “how old” they are, but I seem to get a fairly good idea of soul age. Maybe it is the fear vs love level Michael mentions, I am picking up on. hmmmm I’ll have to ponder that for awhile. I know it’s about a sense of calmness and acceptance of handling life’s situations. Old souls seem to glide through life dramas with a bit more grace than younger souls. Older souls tend to be more insightful, intuitive and able to look at themsevels honestly. Younger souls tend to spend more time in denial of who they are, fearful of being wrong, have more of a need to prove themselves to others and so on.
I guess I experience old souls as wise and at peace with themselves, aware that they have found what they’ve been looking for and it is within them. Younger souls are still searching outside of themselves for something that seems elusive. Younger souls feel frantic and like a “drama queen” to me. This is not meant to be judgmental, it is simply describing phases we all go through during our own lives, as well as during our soul’s growth and development.
What would be the benefit of knowing your soul age? For me it’s interesting to use my sense of a person’s soul agae as a way of gathering a lot of information about them all at once. If I get a sense a person is about 25 in Soul age, then I have a different set of “notes” about them than if I were to sense that person was a 75 year-old soul. It’s just another tool for helping to understand yourself and those around you. Be careful to keep judgements out of your conclusions. It’s neither good nor bad to be an old soul or a young soul, just as it is neither good nor bad to be a toddler or a teen. There are simply different issues to face along with different abilities that come along with the various stages of development.
