Message from Spirit: what do we mean when we say Young Soul and Old Soul
Been thinking about the concept of young souls and old souls. I’m not quite happy with this designation as it’s hierarchical, dualistic and frankly snooty. Snooty as in: “what do you expect, she’s a young soul, she does not know better.“ Or: “you are so wise, you must be an old soul.” The former is generally accompanied by an eye roll and the latter by nodding.
I asked Raja,* my guide in spirit form, to tell me more about this young and old soul thing.
Here’s what she said.
Hello Dear Friend,
What a wonderful thing to ask. Yes, let’s entertain the subject of old and young souls but slightly change the definition. Let’s define “old” as a soul that has memories of many lifetimes on earth and “young” as one that came from far within the cosmos and/or has few recollections of being a earthling.
Once you learn to spot a young soul, you will forever be enchanted by their fire, energy and light. These souls come to earth with all the answers. Literally. What it took science centuries to discover, what philosophers have been trying to find for millennia – they already know. They truly do! They bring infinite wisdom and love. They understand the laws of the universe and they embody them.
Yet they cannot understand why no one else sees this. They are constantly cut and wounded by the cruelty they see in this world. They cry at the destruction or environment, every suffering creature causes them suffering. Every pierce of plastic we throw away tears them apart.
They do not understand WHY humans are so harsh and cruel to each other when the truth is right here, in front of them, in the open. It is unfathomable for them why an organism that is beautiful and whole chooses to divide itself into individual parts determined to destroy each other.
They daydream because that is when, just for a moment, they can be home. And then they return to earth, recharged, stronger than before, determined to carry on with their light, to save the humanity, to heal the planet.
They refuse to dim their light with a 9-5 job, choosing to live their life the way THEY are guided because they know that THEY are right. And because to do otherwise would kill them. They are strange beings by your standards.
We invite you to sit in the presence of such a soul. Look into the eyes of this being and let them show you the truth. Then take care of them. Because they are sensitive creatures, so easily hurt in this harsh reality.
As for the old souls, well, they do the cleanup. They deal with the muck, the dirt, the pain, the trauma that humans have created over many eons. They clear generation after generations. They heal earthbound souls, freeing them to go home, making space for these new souls to do their work.
It is not easy being an old soul either, but they have experience and have acquired thick skin. They have survived before and it will again. The older the soul, the harder it is to kill it.
Old souls, we have an important message for you, one that we hope you will hear. The message is this: just when you want to give up, seek out the young ones. Let them give you joy and hope to carry on with the cleanup. Follow their example to choose fearlessly and make no compromises.
Because whether you are old, young, earthling, star-child, you each have chosen to be right here and now. Together you will get it (whatever IT is) done. Without a doubt you will.
About Raja and Channeling
Raja is an angelic being, an unseen friend with whom I have a special bond and connection. This relationship allows Raja to speak and write through me. Raja also assists me during energy readings and healings.
The process of a spirit directly communicating through a human is called channeling.
A person who allows an unseen friend to speak or write through her is called a channel. Some of the writing that I do on this blog is my original material, other writing is brought directly from the unseen world through a technique called channeled writing.
Often, Raja or another unseen friend will come through during an energy healing session. When that happens, I will go into a trance state and will channel them vocally. Many clients can feel a shift in the energy when it happens, sometimes they will even ask for Raja to come talk with them.
Information received through channeling (written and vocal) differs from that received through a regular psychic reading, especially when it comes from high vibrational beings. The main differences are in the type of message and also the energy that comes through with the message. Our high vibrational unseen friends are not interested in predicting what will happen tomorrow. They are not interested in the mundane every-day concerns of earthlings. They come through for the explicit purpose of providing a higher perspective of our journey on earth, bringing light and healing to us. Their energy comes through the writing and can be very healing and empowering.
They also have much to learn from us. It is a symbiotic relationship that benefits both parties.
