The 7 Essence Roles - Which one are you?

According to The Michael Teachings, a channeled system for understanding the human experience, each of us has an innate Essence Role, which is our primary "being-ness." It is through this perspective that we experience our life's lessons.

There are seven roles: Priest, Server, Sage, Artisan, King, Warrior and Scholar.

Our Role is with us throughout the series of lifetimes we experience on Earth. Therefore, it is a very prominent aspect of our Authentic Selves that can give us individual direction for how to best navigate our lives as well as insight into what our true life purpose is about!

Here's a character sketch of each Essence Role:

The job of the Artisan is to create - to bring to the Earth everything that has not existed here prior. They not only bring in 'things' but also moods, new ideas, and different possibilities to consider. Artisans are the most fluid and changeable of all the Roles, which keeps them open to influences from all realms. Earth can be difficult for Artisans though, because of its dense and slow energy.

Sages are the informers and truth-tellers of the planet. They disseminate information about 'what is going on' to the other Roles and they do expect others to pay attention! Sages love to talk :) and are are the most humorous and playful of all the Roles. They direct others towards enlightenment by showing them that we can grow through our expressive expansion.

Priests are innately compassionate, caring and warm. They strive to help others heal and connect emotionally. They are highly spiritual and enthusiastically guide others to access their own spiritual side, often giving a push for others to awaken.

Servers can feel like a special gift to others because of their focus on the care of others' needs and their ability to inspire people. Servers know from deep within themselves that the fastest route to advance spiritually is through 'the path of service'.

Kings naturally seek personal mastery and strive to perfect themselves and their environment. They are naturally charismatic and benevolent leaders and advisors. Thus, they attract great loyalty from others. Kings have a gift for seeing the 'big picture' and know how to lead others.

Warriors have a more practical approach to life than the other roles. If you want someone to organize a plan, persuade others to come along, or defend...well...anything, then you'd do best to call on a Warrior. Warriors are the "doers" on Earth. They express themselves through action and force.

Scholars are collectors of knowledge, experiential knowledge included. People seek out Scholars for information and for their viewpoints. Over their lifetimes, Scholars collect a wealth of information that they carry with them in their soul.
