People have requested me to bring back my descriptions of the Overleaves in the last 3ish years. Whenever someone brought up how they helped them, I shed a tear inside because I like that stuff I write can help.
It's a bit sensitive for me to repost them publicly, but I am pretty done living in any sort of fear as a default, so I'm gonna bring them back.

 

These descriptions are my own summaries of all compiled information on the Soul Ages.

Soul Ages seem to describe a default awareness of the world we live in. Think of it as a contextual frame that influences how you perceive the interrelated dynamics that happen within and around us.
Note that while our Essence has a Soul Age and Level built upon cumulative experiences over many lifetimes, when we are born, we kind of have to start from scratch and build up to remembering our Essence's Soul Age and Level. We start at MANIFESTING Infant Level 1 and keep moving up the levels until we stall our progress (usually due to imprinting or circumstances to tend to) or until we reach our actual Soul Age & Level.
However, even when we get to our actual Age & Level, we don't just only manifest that level. After all, it can be kind of hard to sustain say 4th Level Old, when we are dealing with a competitive workplace, entangled romances, or pursuits of activism etc. So just keep that in mind. We can manifest a wide range of Soul Ages.

Also Note: Technically there are 7 Soul Ages, with the last two being Transcendental and Infinite. I'll just be focusing on those relevant to us here on average everyday Earth.

INFANT SOUL AGE (SURVIVAL AWARENESS)

 

For individuals and civilizations in the Infant Soul Age, life is all about living and surviving, and helping others to live and survive in the world. The dichotomy explored here is of Life and Death.

This perspective says "There is me and everything else is not me." This is because there's a natural instinct for the Infant Soul to be a loner protecting self from scary threats, until it’s shown that you can trust others as caring souls that are the same as "me".

Here we learn about the differentiation between our body and the world through our physical senses, and about the necessity to sustain CONSCIOUSNESS in our body. So quite literally, life is navigated through tangible contact and Touch: as we feel our way through "the dark" of life. (Reference: Michael Speaks: Soul Ages and Levels)

Considering all this, the Survival Awareness simply sees diet as Food and Fuel you must scavenge and forage as a way to continue living. (Reference: Diet, Awareness, Consciousness and Soul Age)

 

Overall, this Soul Age tends to be built around and shaped by your Mode (Relationships); forming deep bonds that are then supported or challenged by your Attitude (Perspectives/Philosophies), played out through your Body Type (Behaviors/Health), and processed or corrected by changes in your Goal (Ambitions/Pursuits). (Reference: OMW: Personal Pathways)

 

The Infant Soul's Negative Pole is DISSONANCE.
the Infant Soul's Positive Pole is INNOCENCE.
(Reference: Michael Speaks: Soul Ages and Levels)

 

In -Dissonance, you are scared, fearful and superstitious, fighting or fleeing from experiences for the sake of self-preservation, and Living only to Eat. (Reference: Diet, Awareness, Consciousness and Soul Age) Any oppositions to you in any sense of the world are seen as terrifying beings and forces that must be avoided at all costs or else you will risk death from them. (Reference: Opposition to One's Personal Lifestyle and Beliefs)

 

On a collective level, this shows as lasting -REACTIVITY, chaos and dysfunction- possibly leading to mass extinction if the species can't "get along" or focus on sustaining their survival.

 

 

A shift into +Innocence means you are open and curious about everything in life; learning from experiences as sources that help nurture and develop your self-reliance, and your ability to rely on others too as survival bonds. (Reference: Soul Ages and Responsibility) Here you Eat to Live, keeping your body alive by tending to its basic, fundamental needs; while also exploring the great wide unknown that is the physical world around you. (Reference: Diet, Awareness, Consciousness and Soul Age)

 

On a collective level, this shows as +PROPULSION: as we keep the species alive by eating, nurturing and breeding out of our primal awareness and instinctive needs to survive on all levels. (Reference: Soul Ages and Responsibility)

 

 

 

 

BABY SOUL AGE (ORDER AWARENESS)

 

For individuals and civilizations in the Baby Soul Age, separate bodies now come together to seek and build experiences as a group: so life is all about creating structure, civilization, authority and order.

This perspective says: "There is us and them." This is because we now see life as a divide between "me and other me's that work and think alike" and "not me's that work and think unlike me/us."  The dichotomy here then turns into a matter of Right and Wrong, or good vs bad, or pure vs evil.

The general lesson we learn about here is how to COORDINATE with others, be that our ecosystem, society or family, and this means we must learn how to Imprint Rules and Regulations into ourselves and others as a means of maintaining harmony. In a way, life is navigated through Balance; a kind of tight-rope walking where you move to and from chaotic extremes, and then find how to return to stable structures in any and all aspects of your life that have been thrown off alignment. (Reference: Michael Speaks: Soul Ages and Levels)

Considering that then, this Order Awareness sees diet in terms of how it nurtures feelings that are Acceptable and Familiar; offering comforting comparisons that secure links between your present and past, and bring balance and stability. (Reference: Diet, Awareness, Consciousness and Soul Age)

 

Overall, this Awareness tends to be built around and shaped by your Attitude (Perspectives/Philosophies); seeking like-mindedness and absolutes that are then supported or challenged by your Mode (Relationships), played out through your Goal (Ambitions/Pursuits), and processed or corrected by changes in your Body Type (Behaviors/Health). (Reference: OMW: Personal Pathways)

 

The Baby Soul's Negative Pole is REJECTION.
the Baby Soul's Positive Pole is REFLECTION.
(Reference:
Michael Speaks: Soul Ages and Levels)

 

In -Rejection, whatever opposes/threatens your security and confidence in what's acceptable and familiar is excluded, removed, fought against or civilized in any way possible; sometimes even through violence and cruel dominance. (Reference: Soul Ages and Responsibility) You will never question what's been handed down to you from an authority here, and will defend and enforce all of your inherited standards and beliefs blindly. (Reference: Opposition to One's Personal Lifestyle and Beliefs)

So considering this, you live and eat only to Defend your Traditions. (Reference: Diet, Awareness, Consciousness and Soul Age)

 

On a collective level, this shows as "shoring up" confidence by entrenching in and reinforcing the necessity for -CONFORMITY, rigid morality and dogma when faced with any threat to your central authority or cultural way of life. (Reference: Opposition to One's Personal Lifestyle and Beliefs)

 

 

A shift into +Reflection means every extreme of experience, or fall from your stability is an opportunity to recollect and rebuild your sense of confidence, and sense of self. This reflection helps you build more confidence because you learn when/how to rely on yourself and when/how to rely on others, as a way to move forward into the future with greater structure and self-assurance. (Reference: Soul Ages and Responsibility)

So you always find ways to contribute to your society, institution or family unit knowing who you are from the reflections you gain; and thus live and eat in ways that greatly Honor this Nostalgia. (Reference: Diet, Awareness, Consciousness and Soul Age)

 

On a collective level, this Reflection shows up in how everyone creates a society and civilization that reflects their most pure and virtuous ideas of law and order. There’s a sense of shared fulfillment in +ORGANIZING greater structure and harmony through working as one, and often under the guide of a central authority. Everything is working smoothly here, and if it isn't the group knows how to acculturate and bring it into that state. (Reference: Soul Ages and Responsibility)

 

 

 

 

YOUNG SOUL AGE (INDIVIDUALITY AWARENESS)

 

For individuals and civilizations in the Young Soul Age, people no longer see themselves as only belonging to an order, but as self-directed people in their own right. Thus life starts to become all about striving to achieve, compete and be an individual identity who can do things on your own.

This individualistic opportunism could all be geared towards being a supreme ruler, having the perfect family, being the best in your league etc. It is all about what you DREAM and DESIRE of becoming or having. As such, this is the first time we understand the power of having personal CHOICE. In a way then, life is navigated through Hearing; as you follow a kind of frequency/tone of your greatest idea of you. (Reference: Michael Speaks: Soul Ages and Levels) This is also when sound, language and music tend to be used more in all aspects of life- as a way to identify and exert one's self-identity, control, power and culture.

The dichotomy here is of Win and Lose. So this perspective naturally says: "There is you and me, and I’m going to win- or influence/impact you."

Because of this strong individualism and self-centeredness, the Young Soul Age sees diet as a means of achieving Satisfaction by eating whatever you want as well. (Reference: Diet, Awareness, Consciousness and Soul Age)

 

Overall, this Awareness tends to be built around and shaped by your Goal (Ambitions/Pursuits); motivated to always achieve, reach for and collect more, in ways that are supported or challenged by your Mode (Relationships), played out in your Body Type (Behaviors/Health), and processed or corrected by changes in your Attitude (Perspectives/Philosophies). (Reference: OMW: Personal Pathways)

 

The Young Soul's Negative Pole is ENTITLED.
The Young Soul's Positive Pole is ACCOMPLISHED.
(Reference:
Michael Speaks: Soul Ages and Levels)

 

When -Entitled, you feel life owes you what you want. So you express, dominate and impose upon your relationships, experiences, world and even parts of yourself without any concern for the impact of that on others. (Reference: Soul Ages and Responsibility) Thus you live and eat only to Indulge & fulfill your addictions, cravings, habits, image issues or sense of specialness; regardless of the greater consequences or impact that has beyond personal satisfaction and quick fix treatments. (Reference: Diet, Awareness, Consciousness and Soul Age)

This is an egocentric perspective where you feel you're inherently right in how you view the world. You smugly conclude that this is "the truth" and it really doesn't matter what anyone else opposing that thinks; unless you want to impact them to believe so for your own gain, or their beliefs tarnish your self-image or public reputation. You're entitled to how concerned you are with people and events. (Reference: Opposition to One's Personal Lifestyle and Beliefs)

 

On a collective level this shows as power plays, methods of exercising ownership, constantly taking and -EXPLOITING to compensate for your sense of loss/lack, and in dividing and corrupting others to retain what you have.

 

 

A shift into +Accomplished means you live and eat for Pleasure, and you follow your inner desires to realize and materialize whatever you seek from life. (Reference: Diet, Awareness, Consciousness and Soul Age) This is far more innovative, progressive and inclusive. As such, you boldly pursue your interests and goals in ways that may just happen to benefit those beyond your focus as an added bonus.

There's more concern now for reaching a shared sense of good-will with others, as you realize they also influence your choices as much as you do theirs. So you're concerned with being socially presentable, or are willing to create your own groups/standards where you can be seen as an exemplification of power and material success.

 

On a collective level this shows as a consuming & exciting emphasis on people earning what they've "put in worth" and learning to create external forms/media that express their internal realities, beliefs, dreams etc. In other words, you make the external world a reflection of your inner self that displays your +ACHIEVEMENTS. (Reference: Soul Ages and Responsibility)

 

 

 

 

MATURE SOUL AGE (COMPASSION AWARENESS)

 

For individuals and civilizations in the Mature Soul Age, a realization comes that there is more to living than collecting, achieving, having and retaining physical, tangible things/experiences. So now sentience turns inward to look at all those intangible things that do last the test of time. What becomes important is the aim to build states/circles of love, compassion and empathy for all: with profound concern for everyone’s well-being.

The extremes here are of Love and Fear, as this perspective says: "There is you and me, and I know and understand how you feel."  

This is the first time you begin to understand and account for the CONSEQUENCES of your choices; inherently question and break down everything dichotomous (black and white); and ask the hard questions like “Who am I?” and "What does all this mean?"

In a way, life is navigated through Sight, as you find & recover parts of yourself in others through empathy, self-reflection and recognition. In fact, life tends to rely more on philosophies and technologies that encourage seeing one another & the world much more clearly and visibly now. (Reference: Michael Speaks: Soul Ages and Levels)

In this same vein, this Compassion Awareness sees diet as a means of nurturing and encouraging Empathy through recognition, keen consideration and self-reflection as well. (Reference: Diet, Awareness, Consciousness and Soul Age)

 

Overall, this Awareness tends to be built around and shaped by your Body Type (Behaviors/Health), particularly how you treat/are treated by life; which is then supported or challenged by your Mode (Relationships), played out through your Goal (Ambitions/Pursuits), and processed or corrected by changes in your Attitude (Perspectives/Philosophies). (Reference: OMW: Personal Pathways)

 

The Mature Soul's Negative Pole is PROJECTION.
The Mature Soul's Positive Pole is PERCEPTION.
(Reference:
Michael Speaks: Soul Ages and Levels)

 

In -Projection, you become constantly distracted with notions of fairness, righteousness and conditions you feel must be met for loving to be experienced. So others simply become props and players for these dramas & feelings of indignation, rather than living, breathing, deep and complex people. (Reference: Soul Ages and Responsibility)

This then carries into strong needs to live and eat as a way to display Superior Group Alliances that reflect the values you align with, all while you divide yourself from others that don't agree with your sensitivities. (Reference: Diet, Awareness, Consciousness and Soul Age)

Your internal questioning of where you fit in on all levels of your life/world, and keen awareness of, or even painful preoccupation with what personal, emotional boundaries you now recognize everyone has can be quite dramatic, messy and too much to reconcile. So this can lead you to take many "mental-breaks" & retreats from all forms of negativity, tragedy, turmoil and emotional devastation. Suddenly, every action you inflict on others, is something you now know reflects and affects who you are inside too. And there's no way to escape yourself when others around reflect back to you, everything about you. (Reference: Opposition to One's Personal Lifestyle and Beliefs)

 

On a collective level, this projection shows up as stressful -COMPROMISES for the sake only of avoiding harm to others, that are clouded with fear, guilt, shame, frustration, pain, defensiveness etc. Something valuable, meaningful and important always seems to be lost in an effort to benefit the larger group' and any commonality or consensus always seems to be forced or false, as it excludes some vital part of the whole. (Reference: Michael Speaks: Consumerism vs Citizenry and July 14 2011 Michael Speaks: On Current Events)

 

 

A shift into +Perception means you aim to see beyond all of the superficial and logical aspects of your self, relationships and world that keep you divided from forming and feeling greater bonding, common ground, love, connection, compassion and understanding. Instead, you start forming grand tapestries of lasting bonds and genuine personal relationships over life that nurture your and everyone else's sense of wholeness and evolution.

So you do the work of empathizing, and recognize the experiences of others as meaningful to and needed for them, even as your own experiences may have been very different and needed for you. In doing so, you embrace differences, diversity and others rights alongside your own, building bridges of support. (Reference: Soul Ages and Responsibility)

This means you now live and eat in ways that aim to Increase your Sensitivity and awareness for the greater impact and consequences your choices have on your body and others. (Reference: Diet, Awareness, Consciousness and Soul Age) You realize you share the same life and world as others, and wish to live in harmony with that truth as best you can.

 

On a collective level, this aim for perception fosters +COOPERATION between all groups and communities, allowing more creative and philanthropic projects, movements and lifestyles to spread that can bring people together, benefit as many as can be, and create true equality through greater equity. (Reference: Mature Soul Government and Michael Speaks: Consumerism vs Citizenry) Any losses felt from negotiations are instead seen as small prices to pay for something that can tremendously help far more. And any direction taken is seen for how it can bring some form of welfare to the people. (Reference: Opposition to One's Personal Lifestyle and Beliefs and July 14 2011 Michael Speaks: On Current Events)

 

 

 

 

OLD SOUL AGE (WHOLENESS/CONTEXT AWARENESS)

 

For individuals and civilizations in the Old Soul Age, a search for the higher perspective or "scheme of things" begins, and life is all about Holism. The focus now is on resolving all contradictions, paradoxes and discrepancies we face to wholly understand the Truths of Life and come to the Essence of it all. Thus, the extremes here are of Truth and Terror, as we finally begin to COMPREHEND all choices & consequences as they play out in the bigger picture.

This perspective says: "There is you and me, and the greater context we’re all a part of."  But it also emphasizes the necessity to navigate between and include all awareness before it as part of that context.

In a way, life is navigated Orally now (through Smell/Taste), as all the flavors that life has to offer are seen as experiences one is continually learning to enjoy, love and accept the full and deep richness of. This also tends to be a time when people start to be truly present in their body, so that they remember and recover a sense of sheer pleasure, happiness, playfulness & reunion in simply being alive. (Reference: Michael Speaks: Soul Ages and Levels)

Considering this broad-picture way of thinking, the Contextual Awareness eats knowing that food/fuel, familiarity, satisfaction and empathy all play a part in your day-to-day diet- and chooses to be Adaptable to your various nutritional needs & desires as you move with the changing waves of life. (Reference: Diet, Awareness, Consciousness and Soul Age)

 

Overall, this Awareness tends to be built around and shaped by your Attitude (Perspectives/Philosophies), finding challenges to and seeking flexibility in that; and this is supported or challenged by your Goal (Ambitions/Pursuits), played out in your Mode (Relationships), and processed or corrected by changes in your Body Type (Behaviors/Health). (Reference: OMW: Personal Pathways)

 

The Old Soul's Negative Pole is EXCLUSION.
The Old Soul's Positive Pole is INCLUSION.

(Reference: Michael Speaks: Soul Ages and Levels)

 

In -Exclusion, you become overwhelmed by the terror of truly Comprehending and Accepting the whole spectrum of yourself, others and life: from the most beautiful to the most ugly and unlovable. It becomes deeply painful for you to see the Bigger Picture through all the illusions you desperately want to hold on to, and wish you didn’t have to let go of. Above all however, the Old Soul in -Exclusion cannot understand how to reconcile the fact that your & everyone else's existence play such a Small Part in the Universe. That you are just specks of dust in a vast, pointless and meaningless reality.

This inescapable truth prompts the Old Soul to fall into one of two options: either you will apathetically resign to the pain, suffering and tragedy of life at the expense of its beauty- or escape into feelings of transcendent beauty, awe and higher perspective to avoid and deflect the pain. Both of these are exclusion. (Reference: Soul Age Differences and Strife)

Exclusion forces you to disengage, detach and alienate yourself from the world, because you see bigger picture perspectives that render everything you used to know as meaningless in the grand scheme of things. And you can feel that the world just believes ridiculous illusions about life when you now know there are larger truths and contexts to consider and comprehend. You isolate yourself to avoid expressing your truths, as it's uncomfortable, terrifying and painful to share, reveal and work through them: especially with those who are still "asleep", whose less evolved reactions & philosophies are hard to navigate and whose lives you feel you must avoid seeing as you’re spiritually evolved/distanced from them. (Reference: Old Soul Blocks to Essence and Opposition to One's Personal Lifestyle and Beliefs)

All in all, you feel you care too much about life to the point you just live and eat in ways that wish to Resign from it all. Such as by eating just to sedate yourself; defending your unhealthy food/life habits because it’s pointless to change; compulsively challenging or condemning any diets/lifestyles based in compassion and awareness; and diminishing the impact that your Sentience has on caring for the collective body and planet. (Reference: Diet, Awareness, Consciousness and Soul Age)

 

On Collective Levels, when everyone excludes what is existentially terrifying, this results in groups and communities falling apart into lonely isolation, with people even resorting to secret or imaginary relationships as false comforts, rather than embracing the challenges and process of creating real relationships. Or it results in groups and communities coddling and mentally masturbating each other’s philosophical conclusions as a way to seek refuge in the safety of like-mindedness over challenges to their senses. (Reference: Old Soul Blocks to Essence)

Essentially, the world falls into structures that reinforce false and pretentious fabrications of peace and harmony, -COMPARTMENTALIZING the whole truth.

 

 

A shift into +Inclusion means you own your responsibility to care, and recognize that you do profoundly care. You use all that you've gained from your growing awareness to include and integrate all people & perspectives as parts of the greater whole. And you support your needs and desires to nurture a greater sense of life, nostalgia, pleasure and sensitivity as they arise, by eating and living in ways that contribute to the Overall Health and Harmony of your Whole Body, Mind and Life. (Reference: Diet, Awareness, Consciousness and Soul Age)

This means you're able to adapt to any extremes shaking up your heart, mind, body or world; while still making the most conscious, informed choices you can in those contexts. So you gradually remember how to be free and let yourself loose (like the Infant Soul); sustain civility, law and order (like the Baby Soul); have, gain, own and enjoy your own stuff (like the Young Soul); and share empathy, compassion and awareness (like the Mature Soul)- as those qualities and experiences may be needed. (Reference: Connecting with the Past)

Inclusion aims to lighten up about any turbulence in the world, instead choosing to work on Self-Acceptance and Surrender. Thus you now work hard to transform how you are so that you can align with more responsible perspectives, and be a light that can help awaken yourself and everyone else to be more present, conscious and responsible for their contribution to the spiritual evolution of sentience, life and the universe. (Reference: Soul Ages and Responsibility)

You start to embrace the truth of your and others innocent essence; seeing everyone as being a fragile creature filled with wounding/fear and creative potential, while also having an eternal, multidimensional soul with a higher perspective that trusts how everything fits together & knows we are all ultimately safe. (Reference: Opposition to One's Personal Lifestyle and Beliefs)

 

On collective levels, when everyone lives from an aim for inclusion, society becomes built upon the free, amorphous and spontaneous collaborations of different groups/tribes coming together to +COMMUNICATE and share what insights they’ve gained. (Reference: Politics and Political Systems)
In fact, living returns to the simple truths of life: such as to care for each other, to participate in the world, to improve life, to learn and share wisdom, to develop response-ability, to play and have fun etc. People are raised to understand that all of our choices in action or inaction, matter and make up the greater patterns that become part of ourselves, the world and life.
