Are you a new soul? 15 signs to look for

Do you feel like you are being pulled in different directions, that your spiritual and emotional needs aren’t being met?

There is a good chance you might be a new soul!

If this sounds like you, then keep reading on to see if any of these signs resonate with you!

What is a new soul?

A “new soul” has much fewer past lives than an “old soul“, and in some rare cases, this is their very first life. And this means they have no fears or fears of judgment.

They want their current incarnation to be the best incarnation of their life – and so care very much about the world around them, from the smallest to the biggest things.

They have an immense curiosity about everything that occurs around them, including their own feelings and thoughts.

But remember that there is no competition between old and new souls. They each have their strengths and weaknesses.

It’s also important to say neither is more “aware” or “conscious” than the other- generally, old souls are wiser, but there are also many who make the same mistakes over and over again.

And also there are some new souls that progress quicker than others. So remove any preconceptions you may have heard about either of them.

This list of 15 signs is just a guideline to help you identify if you are a new soul. You will have to do your own self-reflection and questioning to determine the answer.

1) You constantly feel like there’s more to life

Do new souls have some big questions that they are constantly asking themselves?

Or is their curiosity about everything going on around them ever-present?

These souls feel like there is so much more to life than what they currently experience in their current life.

They all feel the same way – thinking: “How can we live a better life on this earth? Is there something more to it?”

So if you are a new soul, you might get really excited whenever you find out about an amazing new discovery, do some huge role in life, or something huge and unexpected happens.

2) You feel a sense of urgency and excitement to learn more about your new spiritual journey

Have you ever found yourself in a spiritual discussion where something you said sparks a dialogue about your higher purpose?

These souls feel very curious about new information and ideas that come to them.

They crave new things (like information, knowledge, or experiences) that help them glimpse their greater purpose.

But the key thing is:

They don’t have any limits on when or where they can learn new things – be it in a classroom, on the internet, through books, or while talking to someone.

They are always willing and open to listening more about their bigger life purpose.

3) Your interests change frequently – from romantic partners to hobbies to fashion trends

Another promising sign that you are a new soul is the fact that your interests change frequently.

In fact, new souls are so open-minded that they will constantly be experimenting and trying out different things.

They don’t have any fixed way of being.

For example, they might start off being really into something one day (like a specific hobby) and then suddenly want to try something completely different the next day!

If you were to ask them what they are passionate about, there will be no typical answers – it would always change: that’s how curious they get!

New souls also rarely stick to one subject or thing for too long, nor do they care too much where they go or who they see (or why).

Their curiosity is almost unfathomable!

They also have great general knowledge of many topics. This makes them successful in any field or profession as well as being more open-minded about things.

4) A highly intuitive advisor confirms it

The signs I’m revealing in this article will give you a good idea about whether you are a new soul or not.

But could you get even more clarity by speaking to a gifted advisor?

Clearly, you have to find someone you can trust. With so many fake experts out there, it’s important to have a pretty good BS detector.

After going through lots of channels and having several readings, I recently tried Psychic Source. They provided me with the guidance I needed in life, including the question of my soul purpose.

I was actually blown away by how kind, caring, and genuinely helpful they were.

A gifted advisor can not only tell you if you are a new soul but also provide you with lots of other insights.

5) You are outgoing, talkative, extroverted

The new soul personality type is pretty much the opposite of the introvert.

These older souls, who have already developed their inner-conscious minds, are usually more reserved and private in nature.

On the other hand, new souls are very extroverted and highly social (they are often called “joiners”).

They love exposing people to all kinds of ideas that they find interesting. These souls want everyone to know about their interests!

They love discussing topics at a group level. It’s fascinating for such souls to see how things that were so big before can be reduced down into simple questions – like:

How does it work? – which allows them to see things from a different perspective and gain more insight into certain situations or situations in general.

6) You have great health during your youth

New souls have great health throughout their youth and are more likely to be well-balanced and physically healthy throughout their lifetime

You may be noticing that the new soul personality is ideal for happiness.

These personalities simply have a natural tendency to live a happy lifestyle, which is probably linked to their vibrant emotional energy.

They are always happy and do not feel the need for any changes in order to make themselves happier!

Often these souls would connect with messages about ‘happiness’ as young children, knowing in their hearts that it is possible and that they can have it.

They believe these things even when no one else does – they just know they are right!

7) You are often one step ahead of the trends

One of the surefire signs that you’re a new soul is that you have a keen eye for trends and are often one to take first steps in new ideas.

Because new souls are also very intelligent and are not afraid of taking on the responsibility of their own learning.

They will want to learn things they never even knew existed, and they would understand those concepts at an early age – usually when they were “in their head” (that is, in their mind).

In short:

They imagine every possible outcome and tend to see things before they happen – which makes them often better “researcher” types than just going with what everyone else says.

8) You are eager to start working and make a name for yourself

The energy of a new soul is quite strong – and often it’s not just their energy that’s strong.

Rather, it’s their ambition!

The desire for success is quite high and the new souls will do what it takes to achieve the goals they want to pursue.

An easy way to tell if you are a new soul would be if you were eager to get started on something and knew exactly what you wanted to do with your life.

That determination made these souls want everything they wanted in life – and nothing less than what they deserve.

New souls see no reason why they can’t live happy lives or enjoy success right away.

9) You like to travel or frequently move homes

You can tell you’re a new soul if you move every few years, switch homes frequently, and are always on the go!

The new soul’s desire for travel also goes beyond just seeing it in person.

You may feel an overwhelming need to learn about other cultures and traditions as well – you just simply fall in love with the idea of “seeing the world”.

In general, new souls will travel without even thinking about it.

Simply because they feel an internal urging that wants them to see it or get there.

10) Your attitude towards the future is extremely hopeful

This doesn’t mean you are “naive” or not making sound decisions.

It just means you believe in the power of the future and want to work towards bringing that future into existence.

The optimism of these new souls pours out into everything they do.

And this optimism continues even after they begin working or romantically trying to find people with whom they can share their lives.

But what if you’re not a new soul, is there anything else you can do to check?

11) You tend to reject tradition

Have you wondered why you always have a hard time doing things the way others do?

Your new soul’s nature is to break the rules and expect more out of life.

For example, maybe you have the need to challenge social norms and do something different.

You feel trapped in a box and want to do something different!

This is a very common characteristic of new souls.

Because they cannot be confined in any way, they are constantly looking for ways to break out of their own “box” or confinements that others have set up for them.

In this regard, new souls are also very creative and will come up with novel ideas that others have not yet thought of.

12) You have a great ability to come up with completely original ideas

New souls are very creative and inventive.

On top of that, new souls are always looking for new ways to serve others or do thoughtful deeds for others.

It is the innate ability of these types of souls to come up with unique things that will help their friends and their family, and at the same time help make a positive difference in the world around them.

But wait, there’s more!

As discussed above, new souls also tend to be optimistic regarding life – they “see” possibilities where others might see only problems or limitations at work or in their relationships.

These new souls tend to look toward the bright side of things even when everything seems bleak around them.

So if you feel like the future is clouded with troubles – but you have an optimistic, hopeful outlook and can come up with completely original ideas – then you might be one.

13) You are impulsive and rarely hesitate when making decisions

Unlike old souls, new souls are not overly concerned about the consequences of their actions.

They tend to make decisions quickly and without much thought about the long-term consequences as they see things in a positive light or feel that everything will work out for them.

They are also very impulsive, which can be both good and bad at once.

On one hand, impulsiveness can be a great asset to new souls – it means that they can “make things happen” and go after what they want without waiting too long for anything.

But the downside of this impulsive behavior is that new souls do not always think things through before acting.

Something which may not seem like a big deal but in truth can backfire on them in the long run.

14) You like to stand out in a crowd

The truth is:

New souls are almost always the “best” dressed and the “best” seen, respected, and loved in all social circles.

They may not care about fashion or trends – they simply have a desire to be different, to STAND out!

They regard what is popular as something ordinary, mediocre, or otherwise not worth their time.

If you have ever wondered why you like to stand out, you could very well be a new soul.

15) Your level of enthusiasm is contagious

So powerful is the enthusiasm of new souls, they are capable of inspiring others to act on their own inner drive.

Because at a deep level, new souls know that everything happens for a reason – and that this reason is exactly what caused them to be the way they are now.

So even though new souls do not always understand how things work in order to get from point A to B, they do realize that there is indeed a reason for their life’s choices.

For new souls, this enthusiasm cannot be contained inside a small bubble.

It spills out into everything they do and makes them a joy to be around!

Final thoughts

We have covered 15 signs that you are a new soul.

If one or more of these signs fits your personality and behavior, perhaps you are indeed a new soul!

I am sure there are even more signs that I have not listed here.

So if you want to get a completely personalized explanation of this situation and where it’ll lead you in the future, I recommend speaking to the folks over at Psychic Source.

I mentioned them earlier on. When I got a reading from them, I was blown away by how kind and genuinely helpful they were.

Not only can they give you more direction on the true nature of your soul, but they can advise you on what’s really in store for your future.
