People who are passing their final stage of reincarnation are known as old souls. In this stage of the soul’s evolution, people search for balance and completion in life. They also have an urge to pass on the torch before the end of reincarnation to the generations to come.


Before reaching the stage of ‘old soul’ (End of journey), the soul has been evolving for a long time. The stages of soul’s evolution are as follows.

Infant Soul” – The soul understands about physical existence, life and death, and the need for nurturing.

Child Soul” – In this stage the soul learn about society, culture and community and also understand the need for structure, belonging, and playing a role.

Young Soul” – In this stage the soul understand about the free will, self-determination, taking charge of its own destiny and rising to the challenge.

Mature Soul” – This is the stage where the soul learns about co-existence and interrelatedness, taking responsibility for its relationships, honouring difference and otherness.

Once the above stages has been passed, the soul gets ready to travel its final journey. The final journey is to end the reincarnation and unite with the greater order.

Returning to great order or oneness does not mean fading out of existence or dissolving into nothingness. It means that the soul completes its adventure as a unique earthly individual to become a completely realised self.

If you have not yet discovered whether you are an old soul, read the signs below and compare with yourself.

You are not materialistic

If you are an old soul, you will not show much interest on latest trends or try to fit in into the society that follow things in materialistic nature. Old souls value simple things that involve love and affection over something that has a high financial value.

You were labelled as a strange, weird and unsocial kid when you were young

This fact cannot be generalised to all the old souls, but it is common feature among them. Old souls face difficulty to fit into the mainstream behaviour and therefore usually gets labelled as unsocial and introvert kids.  This is because old souls fail to see purpose on many things their parents, teachers and friends say and do.

You prefer to be alone

The old souls always prefer their kindred spirits. As old souls are not very common, they hardly run into one another often. As the interests of old souls does not match with the interests and necessities of normal people, they find it difficult to make friends with who they cannot relate to. Therefore old souls are normally loners and have introverted personalities.

You see the bigger picture

Old souls have the tendency to look at life with a birds eye view and see what is the most wise and meaningful way to approach life. They normally think there is always more than one way to look into any problem and every problem has an answer. Old souls have the ability to see problems in others perspectives than souls in younger stages of reincarnation. This ability make them fair minded in solving problems and their solutions are based mainly on facts and opinions rather than gut feelings.

You represent humankind as a whole

Old Souls are more like citizens of the world. Old souls do not separate people based on country, culture, Race, origin or religion.

You are calm in everything you do

Old souls understand that nothing actually gets done if everyone is running around losing their heads. They always become the calm force who stop, wait, Listen and sense of what is happening before deciding what steps to take next.
