The categorization of souls according to their developmental stage includes four distinct phases: Young, Mature, Old, and Ancient. Furthermore, souls marked as 'Rebr,' denoting 'Reborn,' can belong to any age group.
A 'Young' soul typically possesses fewer than a couple of lifetimes of experience, seldom exceeding three and never surpassing five. The definition hinges not so much on the duration but rather on the extent of lived and learned experiences.
Characteristics of 'Young' souls encompass qualities such as youthfulness, playfulness, innocence, naiveté, openness, lack of suspicion, limited awareness, susceptibility to gullibility, idealism, and worldly outlook. Such souls tend to be susceptible to substance abuse and victimization, taking things and people at face value not out of wisdom but rather owing to their lack of knowledge.
Their energies can be 'read' for their freshness, marked by an aura of childlike innocence.
'Mature' souls, often referred to as the 'new old,' embody attributes of knowledge, experience, and worldly wisdom. Their 'newness' remains discernible, though their age corresponds to that of an individual in their thirties. During readings, a sense of understanding of past lives and accumulated experiences is apparent.
Conversely, 'Old' souls have transcended their initial newness, wielding an advanced wisdom that belies their years. Even at a youthful physical age, their energy exudes strength and definition. A notable aspect of 'Old' souls is their tendency to revisit and repeat life lessons in a cyclical manner, akin to a continuous loop that can span generations or even centuries.
Finally, the category of 'Ancient' souls denotes those who have amassed a significant array of necessary life experiences but, for various reasons, have not transcended. 'Ancient' souls can manifest in two distinct personalities: 'positive' or 'negative.'
'Ancient souls' with 'negative' inclinations are characterized by profound wisdom and intelligence. Their depth makes them challenging to discern during readings, akin to curtains with layered ripples. Often 'trapped' in a state of stagnation without true learning, they exist in a metaphorical abyss, descending deeper with the passage of each year. Their existence often embodies a sense of settling and acceptance, stemming from an emotionally and soulfully painful event in one of their past lives. This leaves them grappling with regret, resentment, and despair, often reflected in physical ailments and deficiencies.
These souls can be considered the 'forefathers' or 'ancient ones,' the original souls that once inhabited the Earth and have endured for millennia, if not more.
The concept of 'Reborn' souls lacks a precise definition, although Thomas Moore's articulation in 'Care of the Soul' encapsulates it aptly: "The loss of a soul – emptiness, meaninglessness, vague depression, disillusionment about marriage, family and relationships, a loss of values, a hunger for spirituality and a yearning for personal fulfillment." When combined with a shortened lifespan and instances of suicide, 'Reborn' souls emerge – those who were unprepared for reincarnation and are not entirely 'soulless' but rather 'lost souls.'
In conclusion, these classifications of soul ages, as delineated by Ledicarus, offer a comprehensive framework to understand the diverse stages of spiritual evolution and the complex interplay of experiences that shape souls across lifetimes.
