An old soul is a soul with a relatively large consciousness . Often such a soul has often been on earth and such a soul has gained a lot of life experience .
A young or new soul often means a soul that has been on earth little and has gained little life experience. Such a soul can have a somewhat more limited or more ‘narrowed’ consciousness compared to an older soul.
In practice, there are many misunderstandings about what an old soul exactly is. Old and new are relative ‘earthly’ concepts and can only be compared in each other’s context. Consciousness can be developed in many ways. For example, in some cases a soul may have developed its consciousness, by incarnating a lot on other planets and/or other galaxies and cosmoses and thus gaining experience, and incarnating little on earth. Such a soul can be called an old soul.
Old soul in child
Furthermore, it is a misunderstanding that the age of a soul is always linked to the age of a physical body. Someone with a body of 3 years can have an older soul compared to someone with a body of 83 years. This is sometimes also described as an old soul in the body of a baby or child. Often babies and children with an old soul are called New Age Child .
Recognize old soul
There are various characteristics by which you can recognize an old soul, these are also called old soul characteristics. Old souls can:
- Be highly sensitive and recognize themselves in these highly sensitive person traits.
- Have a strong intuition .
- Have an interest in psychic qualities and be psychic .
- Like depth (also in terms of relationships) and spirituality . For example, you like to gain knowledge in that area.
- Not so much value matter, but value more spiritual things like the soul. You may feel no age, or older than your age. Perhaps you had wise sayings as a child.
- Want to live from inspiration and love (instead of fear: they are often not afraid of death ). You oversee a ‘bigger picture’ and feel that everything is connected.
- Engage in personal development and consciousness development.
- Have memories of past lives; you may be drawn to specific times or countries.
- Love helping or advising others and listening to others; others often know where to find them in that area. If an old soul is not in balance, they can become ‘drained’ by others.
- Be idealistic.
- Feel connected to nature.
- Feel like they come from other dimensions. Maybe Earth doesn’t feel like your “home”; when an old soul is out of balance, it can feel homesick for the dimensions it came from.
- Feel like they are not their body.
- Like to be alone and/or do things alone. An old soul can also feel lonely or an ‘odd person’ if it is not balanced .
- Hold honesty in high esteem. They can happen instantly.
Old soul test
There is no scientifically proven test to find out whether you have an old soul or a young soul. You can feel this yourself, for example on the basis of the above characteristics. This requires strong intuition and being honest with yourself. People are sometimes wrongly labeled as ‘ young ‘ by others.
Some highly sensitive people can also recognize an old soul by someone’s eyes . These eyes seem to penetrate you or look ‘right through you’.

About Femke de Grijs and Mathijs van der Beek
We are Femke and Mathijs: a Dutch couple and we are both highly sensitive and highly intuitive/paranormal. We feel a non-physical presence beyond the visible site and we are very interested in spirituality and sacred places.
At a moment we felt like there was more in life than our comfort-zone in The Netherlands. We followed our hearts. We sold our house in The Netherlands. We disposed of almost all our stuff and we live like digital nomads. We travel the world since 2017 with our dog Juultje (born in 2022) and we go wherever we want.
While we are traveling we are also helping highly sensitive and paranormal persons to discover their divine calling and soul purpose and live it, so they can feel alive too.
