The Server is one of the seven soul types or roles in essence. Servers have an innate drive to serve the common good.
Whoever is spared personal pain must feel himself called to help in diminishing the pain of others. We must all carry our share of the misery which lies upon the world. — Albert Schweitzer
It is not the magnitude of our actions but the amount of love that is put into them that matters. — Mother Teresa
My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness. — the Dalai Lama
The Spirit of Service
Server souls embody an energy of service, care and helpfulness. As with Priest souls, the consciousness of Servers is inspiration-oriented. But whereas Priests seek to inspire the masses, Servers seek to improve the lot of individuals in more hands-on, down-to-earth ways. They are naturally caring and helpful souls who live to be of benefit to others.
Serversare drawn to roles in which they can attend to others’ needs — not because they are “less than” others in any way, but because they are directly in touch with our common humanity. This selfless capacity is something all souls aspire to, but Servers are already there by default. As such, however, the Server is often easily exploited and, historically, has been more vulnerable to enslavement.
Servers were once known by the unfortunate term “Slave”. This was not intended to be in any sense derogatory, but for obvious reasons the more neutral term Server is more commonly used. [Personally, my preference would be “Servant”, as in “servant of humanity”.]
Servers make up 25% of the global population — there are more Severs than any other soul type.
Servers tend to be sweet-natured, caring, hospitable, unassuming and humble. Compared to other soul types, they can be described as “mostly harmless”.
On top of their good-naturedness, however, they can also look as if they are carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders. This is because they tend to identify with the misery and suffering of others. However, there is also a general aura of faith in the power of good and a willingness to soldier on. They tend to be very grounded and find it relatively easy to take life’s problems lightly. Old Servers like the Dalai Lama can exude a peaceful, joyful quality, like your ideal grandparent.
Facially, they are often characterised by smallish, tired-looking eyes, a sincere, soulful expression, soft skin, a potato-shaped head, and what I am tempted to call “hamster cheeks”.
Note that their gentleness does not necessarily prevent them from attaining or holding a high-status position. Though they may lack certain leadership qualities, their desire to serve enables them to be very respectable monarchs, politicians and company directors. Many, however, find fulfilment in home-making, nursing, and similar roles.

Positive and Negative Poles[As a reminder, any manifestation of consciousness has both a positive pole and a negative pole. The positive pole is an expression of the true self or soul; the negative pole is an expression of the false self or ego.]
Servers are the most altruistic and accommodating of the Roles, tending to put the needs of others first, even if to their own detriment. In the positive pole, service, the Server soul might be better described as a “saint”.
The word “slave”, on the other hand, is more in line with the Server’s negative pole (bondage, servitude). In this case, the individual identifies with being someone who has no choice but to work their fingers to the bone for others, and for no thanks or reward.
Server Soul Evolution
As a reminder, all souls progress through five cycles of self-evolution in physical form (see: Reincarnation: the 35 Steps.)
Of all the soul types, the Server takes to physical life the most readily, even in the first cycle, the Infant cycle, which is about basic physical needs and family survival. Other essences do not find their feet until later stages of reincarnation.
In the second stage, Baby Servers are likely to adopt menial service work in exchange for security. A lot of downtrodden housewives are Baby Servers.
In the third stage, Young Servers tend to seek personal achievement or material success within a service-related profession or vocation, such as medicine. The Young Server finds and asserts his or her own way of serving others.
In the fourth stage, Mature Servers seek to serve others in more meaningful ways, putting the Mature soul’s empathy to good use in counselling skills, for instance.
In their fifth and final stage of reincarnation, Old Servers like the Dalai Lama live to perfect their service to the world at large. They are indeed more like saints.
