Soul age refers to how a person
has grown from experience on the planet, not just to how many lifetimes he or
she has lived. No person is "ahead" or "behind" any other, but is simply occupying another
place in the continuous circle leading to and from the Tao.
Each soul age brings a unique perspective and
an array of lessons that offer experience, individual choice, and ultimately,
the opportunity to learn and evolve.
During this cycle of incarnations, the soul progresses
through five soul age stages on the physical plane. Each stage is a mark of the soul's evolution.
The Soul Age Stages
Souls deal with issues of survival; they do not yet have a basis for
making sense of what is “out there”—they only know that it is “not me.”
Infant souls often live on the fringes of society, and their experience of
life is simple, earthy, primitive, and mystical. Without loving
guidance from older souls who teach them the difference between right and
wrong, Infant souls may react violently to perceived threats.
Infant Soul Countries:
have a need for structure and tend to live according to beliefs based on
dogma, such as religious fundamentalism. Baby souls, focused as they are on bringing people
together under the umbrella of civilization, see others, as
being “just like me.” They can become confused and
upset when those “other me’s” act differently than expected. Their experience of
life is rule-based, rigid, dogmatic, family-oriented, and highly structured
around adhering to the laws and mores of an institution or culture -- think of
the Middle West and the conscientious drive to be the "model citizen."
Baby Soul Countries: Iran, Iraq, Haiti, Ireland, Libya, Middle East
Young Souls are success oriented
and set high standards of personal achievement. Young souls are learning to
impact the world, and see others as “you”s they can impact. Their experience
of life is competitive, industrious, independent, profit-motivated,
win-lose, and in pursuit of anything that leads to prosperity. They fear
aging, the natural decline of their bodies, and go to
great lengths to preserve their status and appearance. Young souls could be
the official soul age for face-lifts, Botox injections, and tummy-tucks.
Young Soul Countries: USA, China,
Israel, United Arab Emirates
Souls are relationship
oriented and tend to gravitate toward emotional
drama. Mature souls, delving into their inner world and exploring relatedness,
can keenly feel other people’s “stuff,” and perceive it in the same way they
perceive their own. This can make for much intensity and, often,
subjectivity. Their experience of life is dramatic, emotional,
soap-opera-like, identified, intimate, empathetic, and self-aware.
Mature Soul Countries: England, Austria, Italy, Poland
seek the larger perspective of life, and have less interest in playing the
material game. They tend to be
more detached, and try to see themselves and others within a larger context,
fostering a "live and let live" motto.
Their experience of life is laid-back, easy going, detached from emotional
intensity, spiritually-minded, and sometimes a little lazy.
Focus: The Big Picture; Philosophical
Old Soul Countries: Iceland, Holland, Finland, Czechoslovakia
