If you believe that you have come into the world some years ago and then you will die some day and that’s it, then the consideration of the age of your soul doesn’t make much sense. You need to- at least consider that your soul will last beyond your physical death and, when you were born, it already has been here before in a different form. There is a lot of evidence for this assumption. At the end of the day it cannot be proved with the methods of contemporary science – but neither can be the belief that we live just this present life and nothing before and nothing afterwards.
Assuming that an individual soul is incarnating in human bodies in order to have experiences which are not available in the other realm, we can easily notice that there are consistent differences between humans, in their needs, their behaviours, their though processes and so on
In our first video we spoke about the archetypes of a soul, the soul roles which are distinct between humans. We spoke about the “Healer”, the “artist”, the warrior, the scholar, the sage, the priest and the king. It is interesting how these archetypes express in a living person and also through the cycles of incarnations of the soul. When we take the warrior as an example: there are many different ways to express this archetype, from direct fighting between individuals to a dedicated activity in service of a “good” thing, like activists for positive changes, who don’t fight with weapons to destroy, but the fight FOR something with all their positive actions, their speech, documentaries and what not. There are many more expressions of being a warrior, I hope you get the point that they are decisively different in their quality.
This leads to the4 notion of “soul ages”. Wherever age your soul happens to be right now, your handling of problems and your overall thinking and behaviour differs from other people with the same soul role, but being of different age.
Let’s take a practical example: Manifestations on the street against the Covid measurements (or any other political question). People who actively show up and express their opinion can be of almost any soul age, but how they behave is different. Child souls would be playful, trying to understand what it is all about, but probably giving up soon because they are not considered relevant. Young souls would be the most active ones, more decisive, more noisy and most likely also considering to use violence to demonstrate their fervour. Mature souls would be more considered, trying to understand better, using their intellectual capacities of evaluation and go for it once they have decided that they are on the right side. Old souls are more likely to observe what is going on, trying to understand in detail the whys and hows, the reasons and the possibilities of change, of finding creative solutions. They will write books and give speeches, but they are less likely to march in the first rows of any manifestation while expressing their sympathy or disagreement in other ways.
I am aware that this is an oversimplification, that also old souls can engage in demonstrations on the street when they feel the need and urgency to do so, while young souls can also participate peacefully and restrict their drive to action to just walking and being part of the event. This might also depend on the actual level within the soul age where a person has arrived.
Every soul age has 7 levels or steps, each is lived within 3 or more lives to complete the learning of the particular step. In the two conversations with Marion Lockert you will find a detailed outline of the main characteristics of each step, the main learning task of the soul incarnated within the present level. I hope you can find some moment of aha which I got when I first met the concept. You can understand yourself better and, most important, other people. So you can stop blaming them or wanting them to be different, as soon as you understand that their path contains other learning steps and different behaviours than yourself.
If you have questions or comments, please write them to us, especially to Marion, who will be happy to answer them.
