A lightworker is anyone who devotes their life to being a bright light in the world. They understand that their actions (no matter how big or small) have the potential to raise the vibration of the planet.
A lightworker soul is awake—conscious that their presence matters—and they are part of something that is bigger than them.
Lightworkers are not just tie-dye-wearing hippies and healers with dreads. Far from it. They are teachers and chefs, writers and singers, producers and cleaners, mothers and mediums, creative directors and kaftan designers. They’re at the country club and the nightclub, in the café and the classroom, the boardroom and the art room.
A lightworker is someone who makes a conscious decision to answer the call of Source (light) over the call of the ego (fear). There are two types of energy on this planet: light and dark. Light energy is unlimited and comes from Source. It’s high vibrational, expansive, positive, and full of love.
Dark energy is much more dense. It’s the manipulation, power struggle, and fear. It sees us all as separate, rather than connected spiritual beings. It goes against the flow of the Universe.
Lightworkers turn their light on by following what lights them up and then effortlessly sharing that light with the world around them. They are in tune with the callings of their soul and act on its whispers regardless of fear. They do not need to convince anyone of anything, rather just be the light.
While some lightworkers alive right now incarnated with a conscious mission to be of service (and have been doing so for lifetimes), there are countless souls awakening to the call to be of service. Anyone who chooses to devote their life to being a bright light in the world is a lightworker. There are no snobby spiritual tests to pass or assignments to hand in. The only requirement is a desire to connect with your own authentic light and a longing to serve the world.
I call it working your light. By following what you love, you are working your light. By choosing a higher thought when you find yourself in a bad mood, you are working your light. By encouraging someone instead of criticizing them, you are working your light. By sharing your unique gifts, you are working your light. By connecting to the unlimited supply of love in the Universe, you are working your light. By being true to yourself, you are working your light. By being kind and compassionate, you are working your light.
Definition of a lightworker: Someone who wholeheartedly makes the decision to make the world a brighter place by being in it.
The more conscious we get, the higher our vibration, and the more aligned to Source we become. The more conscious we are, the more we see how everything is connected and how we fit into a larger whole.
Many lightworkers may find that as they raise their consciousness, they become more energetically sensitive, picking up other people’s feelings, energy, and thoughts. You may find it hard to watch the news or violent films. You may also find that any old relationships that are built on manipulation, control, and fear, start to drop away as you are no longer an energetic match to them.
For some time now, we have been living in a largely unconscious state. In order for Mother Earth to survive we need a global awakening. This awakening has already begun.
I believe that you are one of souls who chose to lead the way.
