The older we get in earth years, the more experiences we accumulate that shape our thoughts, behavior, and worldview. However, what if this acquired wisdom wasn’t just from the experiences in this lifetime but an accumulation from all the ones before and all the ones that will come after? Bare with us here. All we’re saying is that there is a possibility that this life is not the only source of experiences and development.
It is possible that it is actually the whole of conscious existence that ages our soul. This would explain why some people seem wise beyond their years, while others are stuck in a childlike state. Whether you believe in the soul or not, this theory might help you understand the people around you better.
What Is The Soul Age?
The Soul Age theory defies the idea that we all just have one life. It believes that people get multiple lifetimes to live and learn until they can grow into their highest selves. Each soul goes through an individual process of evolution. Soul ages are based on where in the reincarnation cycle the soul has been able to advance. While reincarnating in different bodies, the soul collects experiences and lessons that it carries with it throughout the entire cycle of reincarnation.
The goal is to pay off karma as it advances and reaches a point of freedom where it can to can return universal and infinite consciousness. The more the soul develops, the more it has awareness and experience. The soul’s age is about the experiences a person has made of living on the planet, not just how many lives they’ve lived. With each life cycle, the soul is meant to learn something specific, starting with how to exist in its physical form and live by the rules of society, to finding independence and returning to spirituality.
