    I've read a few articles about this topic. I find it fascinating. I would appreciate it if you share your personal experience on this topic where you discovered you're own soul age.

    Same! I've always felt like maybe I was new to all of this.

    While going through regression therapy I was concerned with the subject of age, both of the soul and the reality of present life. It was a stumbling point for me. But the doctor I was seeing emphasized to me repeatedly that the soul has no age. Where, or how, she came by this as a matter of factual knowledge I do not know. But somehow it was resident with me. In my personal belief system the soul is apart of a greater "beyond" ... it is, to me, a segment of the Great Spirit, the Beyond ... God if you so prefer. In many philosophies and belief systems God has no beginning or end ... boggles the biology of our brain-oriented system of thinking. But given that hint: God has no beginning ... and the premise we are OF the Great Spirit (whom ever you believe Her to be;)) ... then one might deduce that the soul has no age. Our mortal minds have a hard time with infinite concepts, we want to structure all of our principles on tangible evidence ... thus a beginning and an end. I kinda like to marvel in the mystery, and occasionally ponder infinite eternity ... like a grain of sand ... or stars on a crisp fall night.

    I've always considered myself an old soul. A lot of my traits fit with the descriptions I've seen of other old souls, though I don't know how far back I go. I don't know whether I'm "ancient" or if I've just been around for, say, a couple hundred years.

    I agree with you. But I was talking about soul age in a different way. What I meant was the number of incarnations we had as humans. So someone might have had 10 while another 1000. Someone that had more incarnations is more evolved and might be considered a mature or old soul. Whereas someone with less incarnations might be considered infant or baby soul.

    Bita, I think your thoughts are shared by most people and may have merit. I personally think that our return to a physical experience is that it is the better of the alternative ways to achieve the desired understanding. So in that case, a soul may have a characteristic that makes it easier or harder in one manner than another - much like some people lean more toward Visual stimulus than others. Or, maybe some just like it more than others, it would be kind of hard to judge from our narrower understanding while being involved with our physical lives - kind of like a "can't see the forest because of all the trees" experience.

    If time and space are constructs of the physical only, then "old / young"" are only physical concepts too. Probably a better term is "more / less evolved". Not even the number of incarnations should be relevant, because the soul's progression isn't uniform. Most lives don't add almost anything to soul's evolvement because we don't know what to do.

    I don't believe you can feel how evolved you are. If you are more evolved you know it, and you know what to do with it. If you don't know, then you are less evolved, and you should strive to find out what you have to do, to not waste your incarnation opportunity.

    Given that criteria, I'm young because I certainly have no "knowing" about it plus being near the end of this trip and still unsure of the reason/lesson that it was started.

    There are so many contradictory opinions ... There are so many people who claim to "know" ... Whom to believe? In my opinion, and I could be mistaken on any or all of my opinions, we should believe nobody but ourselves. Each one of us should try to get in touch with our innermost selves, ask questions, and get answers. Most of my opinions on the matters discussed on this forum were formed this way.

    I believe that soul's evolvement follow the progression instincts, emotions, intellect, intuition, .... If it is so, then looking at ourselves, and around us, we can guess one's soul's level of evolvement. We all are here in physical because our main focus of consciousness is on emotions, but there are differences in evolvement between humans. We are all in our soul's youth, but some are in their high teens, some in their twenties, and some in thier early thirties (in human age terms).

    Not very many people are willing to accept that most souls are much older than initially realized and that we are already old years without number having lived lives long since forgotten in other worlds and planes of existence. Such is a hard pill for some to swallow but deep down people know this to be so.

    A friend of mine is absolutely sure that this time is her first visit ever to Earth.
    I have no reason to not believe her. She knows best about herself.
    She is not a baby soul, not at all. She’s full of stories about the other worlds she came from. At night, she often travels back to the friends she’d left behind.
    Another time I had a male friend who was so pure (and wise for his young age) that I suspected that I dated some kind of escaped angel on a sole mission to Earth. (Well, his mission and profession still suspects strong alien influences, lol. He is a sound technician, but not for music or bands.)
    When you define being an old soul as having had countless lives, it shouldn’t be an inevitable compliment. Maybe we are just the lazy kids in class, while the smart ones speed up and leave as soon as possible.
    Usually people think reflective wisdom (especially when it is not correlated to Earth age)is associated to being an old soul. I don’t know.
    I don’t know how many lives I’ve lived. I assume a lot, because that’s how it works. I actually remember less than what I assume I did. So it’s still possible I just recently flew in, let’s say a couple of hunderd years ago. That would make me a young soul, I guess.
