Are You Wise Beyond Your Years? 10 Signs of an Old Soul

Have you ever been called an old soul? 

Perhaps you have a suspicion that you might be.

Although effortless wisdom is commonly noted as the main trait of a person with an old soul, there is a lot more to it.

Where Does the Idea of an Old Soul Come From?


First and foremost, this concept stems from the idea that our physical bodies are temporary containers of our spirits.

This is what many religions have in common, however, the idea of an old soul assumes reincarnation.

It proposes that some souls are young. The young souls came about only recently and have little knowledge beyond what the physical body can experience.

That’s why some people may have rash reactions. They may be making silly choices and may be easily giving in to outside influences.

On the opposite side of the spectrum, an old soul has been reincarnated many times. An old soul can be hundreds or thousands years old, or more!

How Can an Old Soul Know It’s an Old Soul?

Of course, we come into our new bodies unaware of our previous lives.

Through dreams, visions and some kind of vague sense we can feel the age of our souls.

Some of us have to learn all our lessons in this lifetime, and others are seemingly born with the knowledge.

In conclusion, an old soul can’t know it’s ancient, but it can feel. It can have a telling hunch and inner understanding of the fact.

Yours and others alike. 

Having a deep sense of intuition makes you capable of bettering yourself by yourself.

Your Social Battery Isn’t All That

I’m sure you love your nights out as much as the next person. Brunches with friends, occasional drinks and fun dates.

But do you often find yourself having to organize them so you’re left with a lot of tempo a sós in between?

Do you enjoy socializing, but you also need a frequent break from it?

Old souls are deeply contemplative, they value their mundo interior and are content being alone.

Money Isn’t Too Important to You


Money is important, let’s not lie to ourselves. But it’s not the whole point of our lives.

An old soul views money as a necessary evil. It’s very unlikely for an old soul to devote all of themselves to accumulating wealth.

They know there are greater things to strive for, that are far beyond anything material.

At the same time, an old soul isn’t stingy with their money. They see it as a way to buy necessities and ajudar os outros.

You’re a Maiden With the Wisdom of a Crone

If you suspect you might be an old soul, this was probably the first thing that caused your introspection.

Have you been complimented on your maturity and calmness since a young age?

Are you able to effortlessly make good decisions and not overcomplicate your life?

You never learned wisdom, or even had to try to be wise?

You were likely born with it.

Your sense of what’s right has been growing through lifetimes, allowing you to be outstandingly wise at any age.

You’re a Parent to Your Parents

It’s a sad thing to see immature parents.

But when two immature parents with young, confused souls have an old soul child, it can be particularly tough.

Were you often forced to mediate between your mom and dad in their arguments?

They came to you for advice, when it should have been the very opposite.

They provided the food and the money, but all the emotional labor fell on you because they couldn’t handle it?

Assuming the role of a caretaker at a young age is a clear indicator of an old soul.

You’re Inexplicably Drawn to Certain Hobbies

Commonly, people are able to explain what made them interested in sports, painting, music or whatever else.

Either they were impressed by a celebrity, or they learned it from someone in their family. They could have been influenced by their teachers at school.

But sometimes, people are completely devoted to art, cooking, or sports without any knowledge as to why.

Simply, in their earliest years, they showed a talent for that particular path and went on to devote their life to it.

Também, surprising talent at a very early age can indicate an old soul.

It’s as if your talent endured through lifetimes.
