Why Advanced Souls Struggle With Abundance…

Starseeds are very advanced souls whose first incarnation was not on planet Earth. In these times they have chosen to incarnate as volunteers to assist the humanity in ascension and healing. Paradoxically, it is these souls that find manifesting and abundance to be one of the most challenging areas in life where they struggle to just keep afloat.

Why is material abundance so difficult for many advanced souls?

Paradoxically, the more advanced a soul is, the more the person tends to struggle. I am detailing 5 principal reasons for this that I found in my own work with advanced souls:

1. Past Life Experiences

Starseed souls carry a baggage of lifetimes where they encountered darkness, poverty and abuse of power. Their souls have chosen to go through the full spectrum of human experience, but the most traumatic aspects of it leave scars on the soul, just like a physical trauma would affect the body.

Because of this soul-level trauma, starseeds and other advanced souls are often afraid of power. Their souls want to play it safe, avoiding power to make sure they never hurt anyone again – or get hurt and betrayed themselves. This fear of power is a soul-level issue, and is often outside of any conscious awareness. And yet it is one of the major blocks to abundance. Until it is dealt with, no amount of conscious affirmations or positive thinking will go deep enough to have any effect. In the physical world this fear of power may play out in different forms, from living in the parents’ basement to addictions and crime.

2. Lack of Grounding

Very advanced souls tend to “ground up”, having too much energy in the upper chakras, while struggling with some of the practical aspects of life here on Earth. For some soul groups this is especially prominent. Things such as making money, getting an education, living a stable life all seem meaningless, when there is so much wealth in spiritual exploration and the invisible world. These souls tend to have other interests and priorities that do not necessarily align with what is deemed a successful life by worldly standards.

While this is certainly valid, sometimes it is useful to turn this around and ask ourselves, what would the world be like if highly spiritual people had access to more resources? If they could buy land and property that could be shared and put to sustainable use? If they could channel their finances into healing, helping and transforming the world? Which brings us to the next point,

3. Misconceptions about Spirituality and Abundance

Abundance is not merely having money or relationships, or getting anything you want. Many rich people suffer immensely in their personal lives. Personally, I remember a time in my life when I had everything I thought I should have wanted — a good apartment in one of the most expensive cities in the world, a family, a permanent stable job that paid the bills, long holidays and ability to travel around the world. I remember running into an old friend who said — I would have given so much to live a life like yours, you are living a dream! And I understood, intellectually, that she was right, but I also realized that I wasn’t happy with my life at all. I would have given it all up in an instant if something better came up. What this “better” was, I wasn’t sure at the time. But none of these “achievements” mattered.

Abundance does not equate merely material success. At the same time, one does not become more spiritual by being poor or miserable. Nor is there anything sinful in being rich. Many advanced souls need to heal mind-level misconceptions and societal programming and get clear about what abundance really means for them.

4. Soul Age

In my experience, younger, less advanced souls tend to have a much easier time manifesting abundance, for two simple reasons – they have more interest in the material world, and they have less obstructions, vows and past life karma preventing them from living in abundance.

As I already mentioned, past life vows and soul-level trauma often manifest as self-sabotage for many starseeds. It may feel as constantly going upstream and witnessing the destruction of what was built up with so much effort, over and over again.

A good example of this struggle is past life vows. If we had many lifetimes as monastics, we may have vows of poverty that we never renounced. While it may have been spiritually beneficial at the time, and while you certainly should be allowed to choose simplicity – if you are constantly struggling with finances due to no conscious choice of yours, a soul-level vow of poverty needs to released. Once these vows are identified and cleared, life in the physical will also begin aligning.

5. Ancestral Templates

Very advanced souls often choose to incarnate into difficult environments and family templates— with a lot of war, strife, loss, adversity and lack of love. It is for this reason that it is generally very difficult for some advanced souls to meditate and keep stillness, because of the traumatic lives they have had. The goal of this connection with the pain of humanity is transmuting it – but many starseeds get stuck in the process.

Family and ancestral wounds, such as abuse or loss of possessions, are often inherited across generations. These deep wounds usually have a clinging energy to them that makes it difficult to make room for more light and joy.

Conventional therapy and over-simplification of the law of attraction often bring little relief for very advanced starseed souls, and tend to leave them with an even greater sense of failure (it worked for everyone else, but not for me – something must be terribly wrong with me!). However, once we go to the level of the soul, and transform the blockages there, the 3D life will gradually fall into place. Starseeds were never meant to lead conventional lives, but they certainly have the power to sustain both themselves and others! Visualizations and prayer often work better than meditation. Soul work tends to be more transformative and efficient than old-school therapy. The key is acknowledging the deep soul-level issues and beginning the work at the level of the soul.

Do You Ever Feel Like an Outsider Looking In? Here’s Why…

AN OUTSIDER IS A PERSON WHO QUITE SIMPLY DOES NOT FIT IN WITH EXISTENCE-AS-WE-KNOW-IT.

Such a person is fringe dweller, a dropout of humanity, a social oddball, and an alien endlessly coexisting in a society that doesn’t feel like home. On this website, we refer to the outsider as the “loner wolf” who walks through life with a feeling of inner isolation and disconnection. This isolation often gives birth to the longing and search for freedom, acceptance, and a true place to call “home.”

Can you relate to this feeling? Have you begun this quest?

There’s a reason why you feel this way, and it’s not because there is something defective or “wrong” with you. In fact, despite what you may feel about yourself and the world, being an outsider looking in is actually a huge advantage. I’ll explain to you why.

WHY DO I FEEL LIKE AN OUTSIDER LOOKING IN?

I have asked myself this question ever since I was about 10 years old. This sensation of being an outsider was originally triggered by my social rejection at school and religious condemnation at church.

In fact, I was practically raised being taught that I was an “alien on this earth,” and that Jesus could come back at any time and take me to my “true home” in heaven. So since the time I was born I have been indoctrinated with this idea.

Yet the feeling of being an outsider runs much deeper than religious brainwashing or being classed as one of the “unpopular kids” as a child. This feeling of being an outsider looking in is intrinsic, subterranean, and seemingly fundamental to my experience as a human.

And I know that you feel it too …

… otherwise, why would you be reading this article?

You have also carried this unshakable feeling with you. Sure, at some moments and periods of life you feel contented — but this feeling of not belonging always returns. Sometimes the feeling is subtle like a softly lapping lake at twilight. Other times, the feeling is overwhelming and makes you feel trapped in a never-ending desert of complete nothingness.

But it’s always somehow there in the background: in your interactions with people, in your observations, in your dreams, desires, and motivations, at the beginning and end of your day, and when you’re surrounded by others.

I know that you know what I mean. And this very feeling was why I decided to write in the first place. In fact, the feeling of being an outsider was the very catalyst for this entire website.

There are many reasons why you could feel like an outsider, but the most significant reason is that you were either born with or developed, an awakened soul.

We were all born with souls, but not all of us continued to feel that connection as we grew older. If you have felt like an outsider for most of your life, you are almost certainly a highly sensitive and spiritually receptive person. You have experienced first hand how isolating the ego can be. You know how unnatural it is to live in a society that is obsessed with fame, status, money, and power. You know how superficial, senseless, and insane living an ego-centered life is.

But you can’t quite verbalize this. You can’t quite understand what you’re going through because you’re inundated with feelings of being “strange,” “weird,” “different,” and “unworthy.”

You long for a home that you’ve never even experienced; a place to feel completely understood, loved, and cherished.

This place is your soul.

It is your soul — the true you — that seeks to experience itself again.

In other words, deep down, what you’re really craving for is truth.

THE 10 BENEFITS OF BEING A SOCIAL OUTSIDER

Every form of soul-searching starts off with the sensation of being an outsider. In fact, it is impossible to start the spiritual journey without this feeling. Without feeling like an outsider, what would motivate you to search for a true home or sense of belonging?

The very fact that you feel like an outsider indicates that your soul is trying to guide you towards true love, understanding, and freedom.

Almost every person I’ve spoken to in my time mentoring others has identified with this feeling of being an outsider looking in. All of these people have expressed a level of soulful maturity that surpasses the average person. In other words, these people saw beyond the pretensions of others, the rat-race of daily living and felt like there was much more to life than meets the eye.

Instead of unquestionably accepting what they had been taught, these outsiders were inquisitive and curious freethinkers.

Unfortunately, we’re often taught that being an outsider is a “bad” thing, and no wonder — biologically we are made to stay within the safe confines of our species’ groups. But there comes a moment in life where “playing by the book” is seen to be a miserable and unfulfilling absurdity. (Just look at all those people who followed the rules, got a good career, wife, children, solid salary, socially-approved status … and ended up miserable, empty, lonely, killing themselves, or dying prematurely due to stress-related illnesses. I’m sure you know one, or a dozen.)

So while being an outsider may seem isolating, it is actually profoundly beneficial for your life. I wish everyone had the opportunity to feel like an outsider because being an outsider is a catalyst for self-fulfillment, self-mastery, and self-realisation.

If you have ever read the archetypal story of The Hero’s Journey from Joseph Campbell (that is repeated in every culture, time and period), you’ll realize that being an outsider is actually necessary for finding your true meaning and purpose in life. So the very fact that you feel like an outsider is actually a good sign: you’re on the right path!

It’s important that we learn to think of being a lone wolf as a good thing. Many indigenous cultures, such as those in Africa and Australia, actually encourage the younger members to go out alone in the wilderness to find themselves as a rite of passage. Without accepting that isolation is part of experiencing true connectedness, we get lost very easily. We start believing everything is wrong with us, when in fact, we are simply being driven to pursue something of more depth and spiritual significance.

If you are receptive to your soul, it is only natural that you will feel displaced in this world. But that is not necessarily a bad thing.

Here are some major benefits of being an outsider:

You are no longer constrained by the rules and beliefs of society as you can easily see through them.
You are no longer brainwashed to think and act in a certain way.
You have more freedom to listen to the voice within yourself more often.
You have enough solitude to hear and understand what your heart really wants to do.
You can see the bigger picture and not get lost in the details.
You can connect with your soul more easily than others.
You have been given the space and room to grow in whatever way you like.
You have the opportunity to experience greater connection by finding a like-minded group of people, or soul group.
The ability to observe others gives you a greater capacity for wisdom and also compassion.
You have the necessary catalyst to experience self-fulfillment and self-realisation should you choose that path.
Although being an outsider can be terribly lonely, it is a privileged position. Leaving the herd of humanity allows you to flourish and blossom in ways you never could experience while being “normal” and socially “acceptable.”

Finally, here’s a quote from Eckhart Tolle;

“Being an outsider, to some extent … makes life difficult, but it also places you at an advantage as far as enlightenment is concerned. It takes you out of unconsciousness almost by force.”

7 Earthly Pleasures Of An Old Soul

Do you think you are an old soul? Have you felt alienated from your peers? Read on to learn more about old souls.

There are those amongst us who simply do not share the same experiences as the rest of the people. These people always tend to have their own perspective on things, perspective that generally does not conform to those of the majority.

Such people usually find themselves in solitary situations and derive pleasure from it. The pleasure is neither born out of an antisocial temperament nor a preference towards avoidance. It’s simply because these people were born old.

We have come to call such people old souls and we do so in reflection to their mature nature and perspective on life. Such people are old at heart, mind and soul.

When considering old souls, it is no surprise that they seem to find solace within themselves rather than those around them. For that, the interest shared by most hold no real significance for such people.

Having an outlook such vastly different has a strong alienating affect and experiencing another old soul would probably have similar influence as most have when socializing with their peers.

A child who is simply unable to befriend his or her peers because of the prevailing differences does not generally have to be considered as a social outcast or socially different.

Most of us know such a person from school or from somewhere else. Such people are old souls, who simply enjoy a different perspective on life.

Are you an old soul?

The following are some of the pleasures enjoyed by old souls. If you enjoy these things, chances are that you too are an old soul.

A Few Pleasures Enjoyed by Old Souls

1. You Enjoy Your Solitary Time

Since most old souls are not interested in the same goals as their peers, such relationships can be dissatisfying for them. Without the ability to relate to one another, no one, especially not old souls, can enjoy such relationships.

Consequently, old souls tend to find pleasure in the company of themselves.

2. Spiritually Aligned

Old souls generally exhibit a more sensitive demeanor towards more spiritually inclined things. Things that seem like a life long struggle for most, such as overcoming one’s ego or seeking enlightenment, come naturally to these awakened souls.

Old souls are matured souls in younger personas. They usually derive pleasure in pursuing peace and fostering meaningful relationships where there is an actual connection. To them, there is no wiser way to spend one’s time.

3. An Inherent Love for Knowledge and Truth

Old souls are naturally more gravitated towards the intellectual aspects of life. Although, no one inherently possesses wisdom, old souls have a natural inclination towards acquiring knowledge for pleasure and in the process, a significantly more accurate and educated perspective on life.

For example, understanding the theory of attraction would seem more appealing to them than reading the current edition of some popular tabloid that has all the spicy secrets of everyone’s — supposedly — private lives.

4. A Holistic Perspective on Life

Old souls are more likely to be reminded of the fragility of life and implications of mortality. This causes them to develop the pessimist’s loop thinking about the unknown and make them to withdraw.

However, such a perspective on life also helps them to decisively and wisely dictate the trajectory of their lives and try to find pleasures in even the smallest of things.

For example, instead of taking pictures of an event or experience, they will choose to experience it in its entirety and engrain it within themselves once and for all.

5. An Introspective Nature

Thinking and contemplation are acts that come naturally to old souls. In the moments of silence, when one can truly hear their own thoughts, an aspect that one needs to delve deeper into their consciousness and examine life and other things introspectively.

It is also these dissective thought processes that allow old souls to learn so many lessons and acquire insights into such varying life situations.

6. A Rebellious Outlook

Since most people are more inclined to conform and comply with the herd mentality, old souls on the other hand are more rebellious in the context.

Whether it is religion or utilitarian laws, if you are able to dissect the supposedly natural order of things and form your own causations and find pleasure in the process, than you are more likely an old soul.

7. The Pleasure of Feeling Old

There is no better feeling to an old soul than to simply feel older in relation to the majority of people that surrounds them.

What I mean by this is the feeling of wariness that forces one to sit down and enjoy the idyllic beauties that surround us.

The watchful patience that is necessary to observe and understand. The feeling of calmness one gets from detaching oneself from the fast-paced nature of life. This is also one of the main reasons why old souls are generally viewed as aloof or cold, which are just one of the many myths surrounding old souls.

Conclusion

Although not an actual representation of what an old soul might be, these are some of the things old souls do and find pleasure in life. If you feel like you conform to some of these stranger pleasures , you might be an old soul.

If you possess the drive to acquire more information and develop your own understanding, you might actually be one yourself
