Are You A Light Worker?

“Before being born into this physical incarnation the many Light Workers of the Earth recognised that currently humanity has fallen under a spell of mediocrity. It has given up its voice and hearts, allowing itself to be possessed by visions of status, ego, war, domination, cheap thrills, sickness, judgement, conflict, anger, and hatred. Each Light Worker chose to come in with a purpose and mission. We volunteered, before our birth, to help this planet and its population to heal. We are the souls who carry a strong inner desire to spread Light, through knowledge, freedom and self-love, here on Earth. Each individual Light Worker has a different way they came onto the Earth to carry out this mission.

As Light Workers we often carry within us the ability to attain spiritual awakening faster than the average person. We carry inner seeds of light for a rapid spiritual awakening, if we choose it. This is NOT because Light Workers are in any way “better” or “higher” souls. We are, however, older than most souls presently here on Earth and this older age should be understood in terms of experience rather than time. Light Workers have often reached a particular stage of enlightenment before they choose to incarnate on Earth and begin their life mission.

As part of our life path here on Earth, we also consciously choose to become entrenched in the heavy burden of “karma” and with this we experience many forms of confusion, illusion and challenge. We do this in order to fully understand the “Earth experience” and this better enables us to fulfil our mission. Only by going through the many obstacles and pain ourselves, much of it focused early on in our life, do we find their own unique path plus develop our abilities and understandings to help others achieve a state of healing, true happiness and enlightenment.

Characteristics of Light Workers

  • From early on in your life, you feel different. Many feel isolated from others, lonely and misunderstood. Light Workers often become individuals who feel the need to find their own unique ways in life.
  • We have trouble feeling at home within traditional jobs and organisational structures. Light Workers tend to naturally resist decisions or values based solely on power/ego/hierarchy. This anti-authoritarian trait is often present even if we seem timid/shy. It is connected to the very essence of our mission here on Earth.
  • Light Workers feel drawn to helping people with many feeling drawn to become therapists, teachers, counsellors, healers, readers, nurses, aged care workers, etc. Even if their chosen profession is not about helping people in a direct way the intent to contribute to the higher good of humanity is clearly present.
  • Our vision of life is coloured by a spiritual sense of all things being connected. Many of us tend to consciously, or subconsciously, carry memories within us of non-Earthly spheres of existence (from before we incarnated here). Some feel homesick for these spheres and feel like they don’t belong here on Earth.
  • We deeply honour and respect all life. Many of us have a deep fondness and connection to animals and a concern for the environment. The destruction of parts of the animal and vegetable kingdoms on Earth invokes deep feelings of loss and grief.
  • Light Workers are kind-hearted, sensitive and empathic. We often have trouble dealing with aggressive behaviour and often experience difficulties in standing up for ourselves and setting boundaries. We can be naive and highly idealistic, as well as very ungrounded (head in the clouds). Because Light Workers easily pick up negative feelings and moods of the people around us, it is important that we spend time alone on a regular basis. This helps enable us to distinguish between our own feelings and those of others plus helps us to touch base with ourselves, Mother Earth and that sense of the Divine.
  • Us Light Workers have often lived many lives here on Earth in which we have been deeply involved with spirituality and/or religion. We were present in overwhelming numbers in the old religions of the past in roles such as Monks, Nuns, Hermits, Psychics, Witches, Oracles, Shamans, Priests, Priestesses, etc. We were the ones providing a bridge between the visible and the invisible, between daily life here on Earth and the mysterious realms of the afterlife, spirit and Deity. While fulfilling this role, we were often rejected and persecuted. Many were sentenced to the stake for the wondrous gifts they possessed (and still possess). The traumas of persecution have left deep wounds within our soul’s memory which can often present in the current life as fears, such as a fear of being yourself completely and openly because a part of you remembers being brutally attacked for who you were.

If you now recognise you are or could be a Light Worker, what is the next step?

When we have made our way through our karmic burdens and challenges and recognised that we are in fact Light Workers, we need to release the need for power in any way and realise that we are beings of light. This enables us to help others in finding their own true selves. But first we have to go through that process ourselves. This demands great determination and perseverance on an inner level. Because society feeds us values and judgements which often go against our own natural impulses, many Light Workers get lost and end up in states of self-doubt, self-denial, anxiety, depression and hopelessness. This is because we do not fit into the current established order of things and so we conclude that there must be something terribly wrong with us.

As Light Workers, we have to stop looking for validation from the outside world, from parents, friends, colleagues and society in general. We must work on connecting to our own innate gifts and talents and develop them. We must take up the search for wholeness and look to heal ourselves. And at some point in time, we have to take the momentous leap to true empowerment, which means to really believe in ourselves and to truly honour and act upon our natural inclinations and our inner knowing.”
