An Introduction To The 7 Universal Soul Archetypes

Just as there are seven hues in a rainbow, our souls cast light as through a prism to embody seven soul archetypes. These soul archetypes — at least for purposes of this discussion — can be thought of as quintessential models of distinct and specific patterns of spiritual existence.

A soul group is a collective of spiritual entities that incarnate together for the purpose of higher learning. Each of us belongs to a soul group associated with one of the seven soul archetypes, and each of us has a unique role to play within this collective. We choose roles in our lives as a means of casting ourselves in parts played on a universal stage for our soul’s progression.

The seven soul archetypes are:

  1. The Server
  2. The Scholar
  3. The King
  4. The Priest
  5. The Sage
  6. The Warrior
  7. The Artisan

1. The Server

The Server (or Saint) represents about one quarter of the global population; there are more Severs on Earth than any other soul archetype at this time. Servers have a natural drive to serve the greater good and to embody the qualities of service, support, and nurturing. They posses an innate capacity for service that many souls aspire to. Of all the soul archetypes, even in the early phases of development, the Server takes to earthly life more naturally than the other soul archetypes. In the positive polarity Servers are the most saintly, grounded, and altruistic of these archetypes. However, in the negative polarity, the Server may fall into situations of enslavement, self-neglect, and/or martyrdom. Servers innate desire to serve often makes them very valued and effective leaders of their communities, but most will find their purpose and joy closer to home.

2. The Scholar

Scholars have an intrinsic ability to assimilate and integrate information on any topic that interests them, and the source that nourishes their understanding can be virtually anything: library and scientific research, travel, participant observation, or contemplation and meditation. Scholar souls learn not only in an academic sense but also with respect to inner world perspectives. Scholars are the only neutral soul archetype; they tend to be less proactive in the outside world, more thinkers than doers. While Scholars can adopt a more extroverted lifestyle when it suits them, they usually prefer a more introverted one. A young Scholar may be arrogant, impractical, or easily lost in details; conversely, the mature Scholar evolves to develop knowledge and wisdom from meaningful life experiences and seeks to be useful to the greater good in some capacity.

3. The King

King souls are natural born leaders even when they are not in actual positions of power throughout life. King souls often possess an intrinsic talent for tactics, orchestration, and understanding derived from broad perspective. Kings may be presidents or paupers, but no matter the role they find themselves playing, a King soul will always be found leading the pack. The young King soul can be tyrannical, autocratic, and arrogant, using others for personal gain, while the mature King (a positively polarized soul) is often responsible, empathetic, and empowering. They lead by example and inspire others to work together for the greater good.

4. The Priest

Priest souls are often born with a deep calling to make the world a better place and to be a source of inspiration to others. More than any other soul archetype, the Priest has a keen sense of when things are going wrong and of how to inspire others to unite and make things right again. In the negative polarity, a Priest soul can be prone to self-righteousness, dogma, mania, and tyranny. (Adolf Hitler would be such an example of a young Priest soul such as this.) However, when they are of positive polarity, a more evolved and mature Priest will tend to embody higher qualities such as unconditional love, empathy, charity, compassion, and understanding. Due to the deep level of commitment most Priest souls have to their causes, many find themselves serving in roles of spirituality, religion, or philosophy. Any role where the Priest has an opportunity to awaken others to their
higher purpose is a good fit for this soul archetype.

5. The Sage

Sages are expression oriented souls and natural born entertainers that posses a quick wit, charisma, and in the mature phase of their development (incarnation), wisdom. Sages are usually most interested in engaging an audience and view the world as their stage. In their earlier stages of development, Sages may be egocentric, obnoxious or play the fool. The wise Sage however, is one who brings their life experiences and heartfelt philosophical insights to others through their performance art. Due to the Sage soul’s constant urge to share their wisdom with the world at large, they will often be found in roles that place them on stage, such the story teller, the actor/actress, the comedian, the musician, the philosopher or the politician. In fact, many famous politicians and philosophers aspired to be Sages.
