[Excerpt from Michael Speaks: The 7 Planes of Existence]
The 5th Level [of the Astral Plane] is one of Comprehension, and it is where your Entity members work through full disclosure.
Everything that was never known, kept secret, private, personal, for any Personality is now brought forth as the entity prepares for reunion. This is a chaotic and quite emotional process. ...
Question: At 5th level Astral, is the anguish experienced more by the individual fragments as they are laid "naked and exposed" to the other members of the Entity, or by the other members of the Entity as they learn all there is to know of everyone else? Are there still harsh judgments to overcome at that stage of evolution? Also, it has been said that Priests "come into their own" on the Astral. Does this usually occur at this stage, helping themselves and others through the difficult 5th level and then healing in the 6th level?
In terms of Priests, they are the fragments who run these meetings, and help to direct the healing, as they tend to have the greatest extremes of Personalities that range between manipulatively dishonest and painfully honest.
Priests quite often have a theme of "knowing what is good for you," or "the highest good," and doing whatever it takes to impose that.
Every Role has a part in the processes of the Higher Astral, but it is organized and directed by the Priests.
