How Can You Tell If You Are An Old Soul?

Generally speaking, we are all old souls, but some of us have been here longer than others!! Have you ever thought that some people are very wise for their age? It’s probably because they are an old soul!!

The reasons I know I am an old soul are because; I have had so many past lives and it still amazes me how many I have had! I feel like this isn’t really ‘home’. I have always known I was a bit ‘different’ even from a young age! I felt very driven and ‘pushed’ to follow my spiritual healing path. I also have very strong connections for towns and countries like I have been there before, but I also feel a very strong dislike for certain places too as I feel that something bad has happened to me there!!

Before we were born, we chose our parents, our life situations and challenges that would help us to facilitate our spiritual growth as well as sorting out any karma! Our bodies are simply a vessel for our souls.

Our soul is pure consciousness and love. It has a unique understanding of what is happening and understands that everything we do as a collective will help to facilitate the awakening of others.

Do wars and corruption make you feel uneasy, as if they didn’t 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 Earth’s ascension? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then chances are Earth is not your home planet!

Are you rebellious or may have been when you were younger?? 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.

Have you ever been to a certain place and felt completely at home or absolutely hated it? If so the chances are you have been here in one of your past lives!

If you have read 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 to lead you in the right direction.

Older souls can easily see through the lies we’ve been taught through religion, politics and through our educational facilities. Whilst realizing we are all one with the universe, we also want the truth exposed to help other people’s awakening process. We continue to seek knowledge in the spiritual, metaphysical and esoteric fields and will absorb this information much easier than anything we were taught in school!

An older soul is more in tune with how to access and implement their own special abilities, (such as healing or psychic abilities) in the name of humanity. If you feel that you don’t have any particular ability, but do 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.

It’s nearly impossible for anyone to completely transcend ego 100% of the time but simply being aware of our ego is a definite sign of being 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.

Money and materialism are products of the 3rd dimensional reality and it’s easy to succumb to materialism, especially when it’s 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 home decorated with spiritual meaning versus the most luxurious furnishings. They may also use their money to help others who are less fortunate.

Older souls are also generally more accepting, not just of other people, but of circumstances as well. We respect the free will of others and are more likely to use tact than verbal demands.

Older souls will often seek out other like-minded people because they know these types of people will help facilitate their spiritual progression. Time alone is also needed as big crowds of people or much ‘younger’ souls can feel uncomfortable for us. Many young souls wouldn’t ask this question or much less be concerned about it. While many older souls aren’t concerned either, for different reasons, they simply “know” they’re old souls, but it’s nice to have affirmations that coincide with our 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 regression. Most of the people on this planet are old souls, yet many remain unawakened and still have a lot more to learn. Many of those who are awakened will probably move on to their next level of spiritual progression. It’s 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 you’ll ever experience a 3rd dimensional reality!!

Do you feel after reading this that you are an old soul? If all this resonates with you, there is a very high chance you are, so tap into your gifts, help others and enjoy your life here on Earth!

  1. I don’t completely agree where you said that we choose the life we are born into and from this we grow spiritually. Who would choose crackhead parents who would kill them after birth or an alcoholic and abusive parents who beat their kids and they grow up and hurt others or commit suicide? If we were able to choose, no one would want to live a bad life. I think if we are put here on this earth, it’s like playing a game of slots, you spin and you are given what it lands on, this way we all have an equal chance to be different things every time.


    1. I know this post is a bit old and you may not even respond to this, but I believe we do choose the life we’re born into. Younger or much less experienced souls need to learn how to survive before they can deal with great social, emotional or psychological situations, which is why they usually choose lives that have survival as their general theme (ex: Parts of Africa, Haiti, etc.). As you get older, your soul would be able to handle situations that are more challenging in different ways, such as being born into a drug addicted family in the projects or a socially disconnected rich family. Your soul wants to develop fully in every way possible to be able to pass onto a greater plane. Correct me if I’ve said anything wrong or I’ve misunderstood you in some way.


    2. Hi Diana & Anthony
      Thank you both for your comments, although I have to agree with Anthony as I still believe we choose our lives. As we have more ‘Earth’ lives and evolve and learn, we want to experience every part of being a human and that means hardship and suffering too. Everything good & bad teaches us something and the biggest lessons come from difficult situations! When we look back at our lives and see the times when we have grown the most, it is usually from the hardest life experiences! If we can overcome these and still be happy, then we have progresses our soul. Love Sarah x


  2. I have never been the norm.
    For as long as I can remember I have felt out of place in society, disagreeing with most of what we are taught and the way things are run. I have always felt and been told by others that I am wise beyond my years and have always played with the notion that I am an “old soul,” before I even knew that was possible.
    Money has always just been a “tool” for me. I gladly give it to others when I can…it has always lifted my heart to be able to see someones financial stresses dissolve. No one should go through heart-ache because of money.

    This article resonated completely with me, and was a very comforting affirmation.
    Thank you.


    1. Hi Seth,
      Sorry for the late reply! I think most people who are a high vibration feel out of place and a bit different from others! I have felt like that too, so you are not alone. I am so pleased this article resonated with you. Love Sarah x


  3. I have known for years that I am an old soul. I was always different…. I never quite fitted in. And I have always felt ‘homesick’. But not for any earthly home…..for my spiritual home. I have always had a maturity far in advance of my years, and I must admit I am frequently bored by people because that do not seem to see what I can see. That there are no races or religions or colours; that we are all interconnected. That wealth and owning ‘bling’ are not the way to happiness. That even if you don’ have a penny to your name, if you help other people, you are better than a billionaire.
