Role in life, soul type - A picture of a mask.

What is your role in life?

Have you ever wondered why your life looks this way, not another? Why do you do something, but something else not? Why are you interested in such but no other topics? What do you meet such and no other things for? Why do you have to face such and no other challenges? And why do they happen to you? Do you sometimes have the impression that whatever you do, there will be always something wrong? Does everything you do have a deeper meaning? And what is your role in life?

In this article: 

  • You will learn 7 types of souls: priest, artisan, sage, server, scholar, king, warrior.
  • You will learn the characteristics of each of them.

Your reality is a bit more planned than you may think.

You are part of a larger, organized whole, so you have a function to fulfill in it. Maybe you do not realize it, or maybe you feel intuitively that it is true, but everything has a perfect meaning in here. You are not born as an empty white page and you do not choose everything you would like to write on it yourself. Of course, you have free will and can try everything, but you are born with certain software installed. You have specific predispositions, according to the function that you have to perform in the whole system.

Think of a cell in your body that was created to fulfill a specific function. Although there are trillions of cells in the human body, only a few different types are distinguished. Although each of them is an individual part, they all form a whole and serve one main purpose.

7 types of souls.

 It is similar to you. Although there are plenty of souls in the world, there are only 7 types of them, sometimes also called rays. Just as each of us has a personality type, so does each of us have a different, unique type of soul.

When you let the light through the prism, it splits it in the form of a spectrum, which we perceive as the 7 colors of the rainbow. In a similar way, when the source of all existence (God, Tao, Absolut, whatever you want to call it) casts its consciousness on the relative world, it appears in the form of 7 individual types of souls.

Before you started your incarnation cycle on this planet, you had to choose one of these 7 roles, spiritual archetypes:

  • Priest,
  • Artisan,
  • Sage,
  • Server,
  • Scholar,
  • King,
  • Warrior,

This role has defined the plan of your embodiment, who you are, some opportunities, and how you interact with other souls. It has designated your specific function in the whole system.

Your soul, therefore, has a specific role to fulfill which determines your dominant way of being.

It determines how you do everything and what you want. You can perform any activity, regardless of role, but each role inclines you to certain actions. It shapes all of your journey, your weaknesses, and strengths, as well as attitudes and behaviors towards others.
