Old Souls in New Bodies

(Image by Clare Bloomfield)

Ever wondered why many children being born now seem so sensitive, or a little ‘different’?  Notice that today many more children have some form of  ADD, Autism, Aspergers, allergies and intolerances?  Have you realised that many of today’s children have a much greater awareness of the environment, social justice and world events?  These children are old souls in new bodies.  Perhaps you are the parents of one of these children, or perhaps you are one of them yourself!

Many of the children who have been born since the 1970s (and a few trailblazers before that time) are old and wise souls who have deliberately chosen this lifetime in order to bring about change upon this planet.  A soul is not ‘old’ just because of the number of lifetimes they have had!  A soul is considered ‘old’ when they have reached a certain level of knowledge, clarity and self awareness.  Some souls take their learning from the place ‘between’ lives, as well as from actual incarnations.  Many of today’s children are souls who have not been incarnate on this earth for a very long time, or perhaps not at all.  They can find the transition from spiritual to third dimensional reality a difficult and confusing time.

Our world is now a crazy, fast paced, polluted and energetically frenetic place, packed with a cacophony of souls.  Most of today’s children knew an Earth that was quieter, and slower, with more natural environment, far fewer people, and much deeper social and personal connection.  It can take some time for them to adjust to their new environment.

Most people have heard of Indigo, Rainbow,Crystal and Star children.  I’m not going to use those labels. Labels usually end up limiting a child, or a parent’s perception of a child.  Instead, let’s look at some of the many energies these children are bringing to our planet.


Some of our children have incarnated on the earth to contribute to massive change in our society, environment, education system and economy.  These children may not fit the mould.  They may have advanced verbal and emotional skills, and be confident and mature from early childhood.  They will gravitate to leadership roles and hate being treated like children. These children need responsibility, accountability (strong, clear rules and consequences that are fair), boundaries and encouragement.

Or they may be the reverse – shy with poor social skills. They may be obsessed with electronics, technology, and sciences.  NASA is full of kids like these!  They won’t usually care what other people think of them.  Some of these children can be labeled with Autism and Aspergers.  Not all of them will want or need relationships outside their immediate family, but many will grow up to settle into relationships and families of their own after they have their feet firmly on their path.  They often have excellent senses of humour, although a little off-beat.  These children may need help to learn how to socialise and interact. They usually understand systems, so teaching social etiquette will give them a framework to handle most situations with good manners, helping them to build friendships and to fit in with others. Don’t speak down to these children, and practice patience.

Some children coming to earth right now have the intention of helping to raise the world’s vibration.  They seek to develop our interconnectedness, psychic and intuitive abilities, and to help us to stop fighting and start loving each other.  They are full of joy, love, laughter, playfulness and understanding.  These souls love healing and helping.  They have a deep affinity with vibrational energies – hence their love of crystals, nature, music, reiki and so on.  With this heightened emotional sensitivity they can often be upset, or have their feelings hurt, and they worry about upsetting others too.  There is a sense of magical wonder about them, and they have may have impressive telepathic abilities.  Even before they are born they may start communicating with you. These children need to be encouraged to have personal space and boundaries, and will benefit from pets and gardening, and non-competitive things like music and team-based service.


All of these beautiful children are often labelled and judged, both positively and negatively.  That’s really not much use, to us, or to them.  Instead these children need what we ALL need: love, reassurance, acceptance and the opportunity to develop their own personalities, talents and ideas.

If you are thinking about having a child, then detoxify.  This goes for Mum and Dad.  These old souls have a high vibration, so raise yours as much as you can with good preconception care.  Also try crystal healings, acupuncture/acupressure, reiki, a healthy diet, meditation and other energetic and natural therapies to make your body clear, healthy and balanced.


Reassure and encourage these children, and then keep doing that, no matter how old they are!  Feed them healthy food, free of chemicals and additives, and get them out into nature often.  Help them manage stress, and reduce stress in your own life.  Remind them often how much they are loved.  Support your child to choose their own path, and nurture and encourage their talents.  Celebrate the diversity that these children bring to our world, and reach out to include them in the wider family to which we all belong – humanity!

10 thoughts on “Old Souls in New Bodies

  1. I have a 10 year old son with Aspergers that is truly an old soul. He has never played with age appropriate toys (always interested in older things) and reverts to watching old school WWII cartoons or shows. At age 5 he informed us that his “real” name is Harrison (not his birth name) and he would prefer to be addressed as that, so that’s what we call him. He wears a “high & tight” military haircut and Buddy Holly glasses by choice. He has lots of problems at school because he insists that he is not a child and prefers not to be treated as such. He enjoys spending time with adults and grandparents and refers to himself as “a friendly old fellow!” His vocabulary is very advanced and he is quite intelligent. This article was such a relief to read! It brings me comfort that I’m not the only parent out there raising an old soul 🙂

  2. Tristan (12 yrs) has Aspergers and I love him more because of how this makes him so special and unique. I always tell him how lucky I am that I got him. I waited for 15 years to have another child. I prayed that I would be sent a little soul who knows how to be loved and I know this is why I have Tristan.

    For the last 6 years I have been learning about the causes of autism and the Biomedical therapies that can help. It has taught me how infinitely intelligent our bodies are and the cause of this ‘ASD epidemic’ is a result of generations of polluting our bodies and the earth. In our case it was my own mercury toxitiy that damaged Tristan’s brain in utero. Then he would have been exposed thru the birth canal to the bad bacteria and candida in my body which is the cause of my own gut disbiosis. Any good bacteria he did get would have been destroyed by the extremely strong anitbiotics I had to take when he was only days old. (He reacted by having the most offensive sulfur wind). This caused permanent damage to his gut which is the first line of defence of the immune system. Then further asaults on his immune system with vacinnations that contained multiple live virus and mercury (thimerosal as a preservative, which is a known neurotoxin).

    This epidemic is a metabolic disorder where childrens immune, digestive and central nervous systems have been damaged. They cannot detoxify and get rid of the toxins that have entered their bodies and brains. They are here to teach us what we have been doing wrong and how to fix it. By learning about the biochemistry involved in our cells, the methylation and sulfation processes that are damaged by heavy metal toxicity, I now understand the reason I was so toxic and unable to detoxify myself. I believe that applying these Biomedical therapies we can both heal.

    If you are planning to have a baby eliminate all unatural chemicals from your food, water and environment. If you have amalgam fillings, have them safely removed 6 months prior to conception. If you suffer gut disbiosis make sure that is resolved before conception and detoxify the heavy metals and any other chemical pollutants that may be stored in your body.
    After your child is born only vacinate when your child is well (preferably 1 virus at a time) and ask what other ingredients are in the vacine. Test for antibodies before going for Booster shots. If the antibodies are there, the child does not need a booster shot.

    We cannot continue to pollute our world and our bodies without paying a price. The ‘price’ so far is our children’s health but ultimately if we don’t heed the warning these children have for us, the price will be the self destruction of the entire human race.

    Books to read if you are thinking of becoming a parent. “Gut & Psychology Syndrome” by Dr Natasha Campbell, “Have you got the guts to be really healthy” By Don Chisholme.
    If you already have children on the ASD spectrum; “Healing the new childhood epidemics Autism,ADHD, Asthma and Allergies” by Kenneth Bock, MD. and Cameron Stauth, “Children with starving brains” by Jaquelyn MCCandless, MD., “Mercury, medicine and politics” by Michael Sichel and “Autism. Effective Biomedical Treatments” by Jon Pangborn, PHD and Sidney Baker , MD.

  3. oh that we would be blessed with such a child – what an honour!! – we have been trying for many years and whether we are successful or not, we know that we will have an important role in nurturing future generations of children in their uniqueness, sensitivity and spirituality – thanks for this nicole! sx

  4. Nicole this is a FABULOUS, RELEVANT, & POWERFUL post. It resonates with me in a very strong way and helps me replenish my patience with a new teaching term upon us. Thank you.
