According to many spiritual beliefs, souls go through different stages of development over the course of their many incarnations on Earth. Here is a detailed explanation of the spiritual meaning of a young soul, a mature soul, and an old soul. I identify with the Mature soul the most, but as you will see, we can be at different places at different times. Some say that you are born as one of these, but that is modified by some natural maturing as you tour this earthly experience. Lets dive into some soul level awareness!
A young soul is someone who is still learning the basics of life and has a lot of lessons to learn. They are often very focused on material possessions and success, and may be competitive and ambitious. They are often driven by their ego and seek external validation and approval from others. Young souls may be drawn to activities such as partying, shopping, or other activities that bring them pleasure or status. They may also be more prone to selfish behavior, as they are still learning about the interconnectedness of all things.
A mature soul has learned many of the lessons of life and has a deeper understanding of themselves and the world around them. They have a greater sense of empathy and compassion for others and are less focused on material possessions and external validation. They are often more introspective and reflective, and may be drawn to activities such as meditation, self-help, and spiritual practices. Mature souls are more likely to see the interconnectedness of all things and have a greater sense of responsibility to others and the planet.
An old soul has learned the most lessons of life and has a deep understanding of themselves and the world around them. They have a profound sense of empathy and compassion for others, and are often very wise and intuitive. They are less concerned with material possessions and external validation, and may be drawn to activities such as nature, art, and spirituality. Old souls are often able to see beyond the illusions of the material world and have a deep connection to the spiritual realm. They may also have a greater sense of purpose and mission in life, and feel called to serve others and the planet.
It’s important to note that everyone’s soul journey is unique and there is no “right” or “wrong” way to be at any particular stage of development. Each stage offers its own challenges and opportunities for growth and learning. It’s also possible for a soul to be at different stages in different areas of their life, such as being a mature soul in their career but a young soul in their personal relationships. Ultimately, the goal of the soul’s journey is to continue to evolve and learn, and to ultimately return to a state of oneness with the divine.
