    New Soul or Old Soul

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by MrEmerson, May 18, 2009.

    Some people believe they are a New Soul while others are an Old Soul. What Soul do you have?

    I believe I am an old soul. I often dream I am another person in another time. I have been other races...other genders. I also have extra lines on my palms which I have heard are supposed to be leftover lines from previous lives. I don't know if I by that one. But there are people I have met that just seemed like I knew them once before. And, like I said, I dream I am other people. Sometimes, I will see someone smoke and even though I have never smoked before...I know exactly what it feels like to take the smoke into my lungs...the calming sensation...the relief to get the nicotine in. I figure I was a smoker in a past life. So...old soul.

    I believe I'm an old soul.

    I say this simple because i married my soul mate, and I don’t or wouldn’t believe new souls get that privilege.

    I'm also fasinated with the bigger picture, like nature, space, life and death...real stuff. I'm not very materialistic, nor care for any of it.

    I know I am an old one. And watching my daughter, I see old in her as well.

    I've been told that my soul is as old as the roots of mountains.

    I think I'm a new soul. You see, reincarnation is not for me (don't mean to offend anyone who believes in it, just my thoughts).

    I haven't decided yet if my husband is an old soul or a new soul.

    How does one tell if they're an old soul or a new soul? I googled it but google said NO.

    Do you think your soul possesses wisdom or memories from previous lives? Do you think you have been reincarnated?

    I have my soul... does that count? :p

    I have been told I am wise beyond my years by a counsellor. Does that mean I have an old soul?

    Do you feel that there is an untapped "other time" which you know is there yet just out of reach. Kinda' like the Dream Time that the aboriginals from your country talk about. I bet those folks have reeeaaallly old souls.

    I don't know about untapped "other time". I know I have very vivid dreams of being someone else in another time. I know languages I don't know. I know what it feels like to smoke..but I don't smoke. Things like that.

    Seeing as I'm 25, I suppose mine is a relatively young consciousness.

    If I answer "No" and "No!", does that make me a new soul or old?

    I've never heard of this "new soul, old soul" business. Ever. :confused:

    I have no soul, just an organic body with a mildly complex organic brain. Quite depressing really...

    I have been told that my soul is very, very young. The reasoning was based on the fact that I had (have?) very innocent thoughts and generally see the good in people, because I am expressive and lack the general jadedness that comes with an old soul, and also because I am constantly curious and act (as well as look) with a child's heart.

    I feel like that could just be the characteristics of a friendly and young teenager though. *shrug* I dont put much merit into things like this though, seeing as I dont particularly believe in it.

    I used to be that. Once you see how people really behave, I think you'll probably change.....

    But how do you know if you have an old soul or a new soul? I'd have to go with new if I look at my way of thinking and looking at things.

    Can I have an in-between soul? Because that's kind of how I feel. Maybe I have a teenage soul. Or a young adult soul.

    Lol, when I read the thing about the Aboriginals and then saw Carmina's location, I was a bit disoriented by your answer. :D

    And about what A2theDre said... Well, yeah. People are far from perfect, even bad sometimes. However, I prefer to see the good things about them rather than the bad, this way my life is "brighter", if you get my meaning.
