our soul's journey -- gathering experiences,
learning lessons, and fulfilling agreements --
an evolutionary process transpires and that
course of development is called, Soul Age.
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

plane. Each stage is a mark of the soul's
The Soul Age Stages
Infant 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.

Baby Souls 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

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,
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.
Countries: USA, China,
Israel, United Arab Emirates
Mature 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.

Old Souls 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

Summary of Soul Ages
Yarbro gave mottos for each of
the soul ages:
not do it.
- Baby: Do it
right or don't do it at all.
- Young: Do it my
it anyplace but here.
- Old: You do
what you want and I'll do what I want.
