Role Photo Database
useful skill to develop for any Michael student is to learn to recognize the
roles of the people around them. One
way to identify a
particular role (other than channeling) is to examine the facial expression
around the eyes ("the windows of the soul").
In the photos collected
throughout this study, look at the eyes of each role group and try
to see the commonalities they share. With practice, you will begin to note
an energetic theme in the expressions of each group, as well as obvious
distinctions from role to role.
Scroll down toward the bottom of
the page and look for the following subtleties when comparing the pictures.
Also, click on the links below each category to see the various combinations
with the essence twin.
|Server eyes are warm and
|Priest eyes are hot and
focused. They can seem intense and fiery.
|Warrior eyes are cold and
bluntly focused. They can seem intense and metallic.
|King eyes are cold and pointedly focused.
|Artisan eyes are
childlike and radiant. They can seem beautifully liquid, as if they were recently
filled with ink.
|Sage eyes are expressive, and mischievously
mirthful when smiling.
|Scholar eyes are neutral,
and may reveal secondary traits.
Essence Twin Bleedthrough
Pay attention to the influence the essence twin and casting have on the
appearance of the role. Generally, the presence of casting is static and always visible,
but the essence twin may manifest in variable ways. For example, when the ET is incarnate, the casting
may show more prominently in the appearance, whereas if the ET is discarnate,
there is more bleedthrough from the essence twin.
Bleedthrough is the actual
visceral energy of the role coming in as a
secondary from the ET, which you can feel as well as see. Primary casting can be
equally influential, when bleedthrough is less due to an incarnate ET, but not
as visceral: it's more about how one behaves, *how* and *where* one directs
one's essence energies. It colors/flavors the appearance to some degree, but not
as much as bleedthrough.
A notable exception is scholar energy, which is
neutral and diffuse. Scholar bleedingthrough from
the essence twin may not be as striking as king or sage casting, for example.
Scholars with a strong secondary influence from
either essence twin bleedthrough and/or casting may look like a watered-down
version of the secondary role; if you just can't decide the role after you've
gotten pretty good at spotting them, the person may be a scholar. With anyone,
casting may jump out at you first, but if you persevere and
study the eyes, the role should become clear unless the person has strong
opposite influences. Some people are hard to figure out, and some are easy.
It's All About The Eyes
Although the shapes of the eyes are occasionally
considered when discerning the roles, they are not a consistent marker and can actually lead one astray if the intention is to apply a one-size-fits-all
template to this study. The deciding factor will almost always be the
expression coming from the eyes: are
they bluntly focused or warm and compassionate? Is there a prevailing neutrality
or a mischievous twinkle?
The expression in the eyes provide telling clues
to the identity of a particular role. Look, for example, at the obvious mirth
coming from the sage twinkle of George Clooney's eyes. The expression is quite
distinct when compared to the look of other roles.
Inspiration axis roles' eyes are warm,
expression axis medium, action axis cool, and assimilation axis
neutral or clear. The cardinal roles' eyes are more focused, and
ordinal are more diffuse. Even though warriors' eyes are very strong, there's a
blunt quality to their look, as opposed to the "pointiness" of kings'.
The two most intense roles and eyes are warrior and priest. Warriors are the
most earthy, and priests are the most astral or spiritual: lowest and highest in
frequency, two ends of one stick.
This is different from most ordinal (server) to most cardinal (king), which is a
different "stick": least to most concentrated energy, in the sense that kings
have the most energy "packed" into their soul, so they're highly pressurized.
Servers have the least pressurized, compelling feeling about them, making them
easy to be around. Kings command just by their presence, and servers comfort.
This characterizes all cardinality and ordinality to some extent.
A student trying to guess the role, etc., without
anchoring perceptions in what's right in front of him--eyes, facial expressions,
energy, etc.--can go wildly off-base, using circumstantial evidence. The roles
look and feel different from one another. If you jump to the conclusion that
someone is a sage, for example, based just on behaviors, then you might assume
that a theatrical scholar with sage imprinting is a sage, because you have
nothing else to go on. Behavior results from many factors, including
overleaves, body type, astrology, imprinting, and past lives, but your essence
is what you *are*, not what you do. Behavior often but doesn't always reflect
your essence, so you have to look deeper to see essence.
Occasionally, what stands out in someone's eyes is
not essence but negative poles or trauma; for example, a depressed sage or a
beaten-down king can be harder to spot.

expressions of each role set. Click on the

Note: Discarnate ETs throughout
this study are marked with an asterisk (*) for easy identification. Remember
that a discarnate ET should appear more prominently.
