Are you using what I call the "Old Soul Excuses"?
Old souls are simply people who have lived many lives and learned a lot.
I've realized that, as old souls, we can come up with a lot of excuses for not showing up & following our life purpose.
Here are the 5 main Old Soul Excuses:
1.) It doesn't make a difference.
The law of cause and effect proves otherwise. If you put something of loving, positive intention out there, you put into action a chain of events that causes some type of change.
Even if it only ever remains in the realm of thought or emotion, there is still a rippling effect. So, if you only ever use your whole life to be as loving and positive and helpful as you possibly can be, you're making a difference.
We are all connected by the One Source - which means that whatever inspiration/information you receive from this One Source, is felt by others.
2.) No one cares/No one will listen.
When you purposefully and intentionally open your natural channel to your Higher Self to receive inspiration and ideas and information, you connect to the One Source.
The One Source sustains All of Life, and is constantly responding to life's needs and prayers. Therefore, when anyone on Earth sends a prayer to this One Source, it is received.
When you tap into the One Source and receive information, inspiration, and guidance on how to best proceed, and you actually take action on that guidance, you are helping to fill a need.
That means that as long as you connect to the One Source of All Life (God/Goddess), there is no possible way that what you put out there, will not be graciously received by at least one person at some point in space/time.
3.) I don't want to go through the process of healing I would need to truly do my work in the world.
Oftentimes if you're here to be a healer, the healing that you've done on yourself is how you will be helping others heal. That means that we need to turn within to the deepest darkest places & find out how to heal ourselves.
For some this process can be easy, for others it may take years and years of difficult, painful internal reflection and processing. It all depends on your own soul's unique blueprint, and that's why it's so important to know thyself.
At some point, you have to decide. You have to decide to heal yourself no matter what it takes, and figure out WHY that's important to you.
If you're wavering back and forth between fully diving into your life purpose (mapping out a plan, taking some sort of guided action), and fantasizing about going back to your old life (where it's more comfortable even though you're suffering), then you haven't decided yet.
4.) What's the point?
A lot of Old Souls have been through so many lives that they've witnessed entire civilizations arise and then fall & crumble. That can leave us with a sense of apathy, preventing us from putting in our full effort.
However, although civilizations do rise & fall, everything in this world is a part of Gaia's history. Things are not meant to last forever, and the only real constant is change.
This is actually a really positive thing, because it means that we don't have to experience only one type of form forever. We get to explore all the different possibilities.
5.) People won't get it
You're right, a lot of people won't get it. But you made a decision to be here to bring your own soul's unique wisdom to this planet at this time, so not everyone is meant to get it.
We all have a mission to fulfill. There are so many Old Souls, Master Healers and Teachers and Guides choosing to incarnate here right now, that it's highly unlikely that if you're reading this, you're here to just relax and have fun, or drift through life.
That's not to say that you can't, at times, relax and have fun, it's just saying you're probably here to fulfill a pretty big life purpose. And that means having balance in all areas of your life. Let's face it - if you're an Old Soul, you KNOW how important it is to have balance in life.
So, even though a lot of people won't get you, won't understand you, won't listen to you, and may even criticize you or slowly fade out of your life, it doesn't matter because again, those who are ready, willing, eager, and able to receive your healing, hear your message, and receive your teachings, will show up.
Please know that the world desperately needs YOUR gifts, talents, wisdom, abilities, and teachings. You matter! Probably more than you will ever truly realize.
Take this as your message from the Universe that it's time to take that next step, and you are FULLY supported by your Higher Self and your team of Spiritual Allies, eagerly watching your path unfold right before your very eyes.
It's time, you are here, it's time.
