What is an Old Soul?
An old soul is a person who feels older than their age reflects. Old souls tend to have an innate tendency to be more thoughtful, reflective, and spiritually-inclined, seeking to see beyond the surface of society and reality.
Old Souls and Reincarnation
Some believe that being an old soul is the product of having reincarnated many times. Having paid off their karma, old souls are gifted with keen insight and the uncanny ability to see into the heart and soul of others. But this is just one of many theories. Others believe that old souls are simply born with a certain unique personality type – and still, others believe that being an old soul is the result of having suffered deeply and learned a lot in this lifetime.
What is the Purpose of Old Souls?
Almost all old souls go through something known as the spiritual awakening process: an experience where they become more connected with their souls and true life purpose. The meaning of life is different for every old soul, but most feel drawn towards metaphysical, philosophical, healing, and spiritual fields of work. The purpose of old souls, as opposed to their personal meaning in life, is the same fundamental purpose of all life: to grow and evolve, but in this case on a spiritual level.

This website really has all the information I wanted about this subject and didn’t know who to ask.
Dear Luna & Sol,
greetings from my heart! I live in Germany. I am looking for likeminds – people who have already managed the fragile balance of psychology and spirituality. Can you help me find some sort of community somehow?
I’d be very grateful if you could give me a hint.
I scored 95. I’m a poet, mystic, seeker, teacher (my profession), at home with others but also with solitude. What caught my eye was the idea of being stuck in the 21st century. Being empathetic to all the anger, hard-heartedness and vitriol in the world these days is difficult. All that’s in the air and you feel it. Much of the world wanders in a spiritual abyss, while at the same time many seek understanding, truth and enlightenment. You feel the latter, too, trusting the light will lead us out of darkness. Being an old soul isn’t easy. Thanks for the wonderful website and all the light you shed!
Have gone through several episodes of existential crisis. The latest one is causing me to look back at my life. My sister has always been the one to bend the truth. When caught in my sister’s lie regarding cutting summer school in forth grade, I chose to tell the truth. I’ve favored solitude opposed to mindless activities… I do find pleasure in some fun mindless activities though :). Needless to say I find activities to occupy my time. These used to be collecting “stuff”. Got a tarot card reading that I was an old soul. There are many rabbit holes that lead to the same question that I’ve had for quite some time… my purpose. Others have recognized a quality that I was never aware of… someone asked my friend whether he knew whether I was a light worker or a healer based off of a photograph with me and my buddy’s dog. It definitely is a solitary life one leads being an old soul. I crave interaction with older people. It bothers me that time is taking these people out of our realm. It’s amazing so much content has been out for our consumption… content that your site provides… Read more »
Scored 100. Recently found out I am a “9” in the numerology life path & came here to learn more about what an “old soul” is and amazed how much of what I read here resonates with me. Thank you so much for the insight!
People have never been Reincarnated. Only Satan the father of all lies. We are created in the image of God. We are 1 soul and never in another body. I have a Doctorate in Theology. I have more college degrees than anyone I have every met.
Where do you get this insightful information. I have studied and read just about everything on Spiritual Awareness but your words are extremely uplifting. I have been awakenened(the sleeper has awoke). I feel as if I have awakened from a deep sleep. It took many years of meditation,insomnia(no sleep for usually 7 days at a time,lack of food,periods of intense emotional pain,trying to clear my chakras(have had much trauma and loss,i.e. death of 3 best friends,family has been distant,daughter is distant due to the fact I don’t follow Christianity,have never seen my grandson except a few times,and I am always alone,friends only seem to use me so I have none,except God and Spiritual visions but they take lack of sleep ,no food and a lot of time to reach this awareness.Never seen any masters or spirit guides but my dreams can be as if a movie plays in my mind while sleeping but that is usually only a couple of hours a night.I do no drugs,alcohol(but I use to).I take BP medication and use to bicycle a lot.I write poetry and it is dark and deep.It is on allpoetry.com under eyesolo.People don’t unferstand me and can’t keep a job at… Read more »
