I first saw the word lightworker in a book I “coincidentally” found in a backpackers in Thailand. I was 28 and traveling the world with an overstuffed backpack and a skeptical boyfriend.
The book triggered a deep understanding for me and opened my eyes to a breadcrumb trail of signs and guidance which eventually led me to the career I have today.
The term lightworker described perfectly what I’d been trying to grasp about myself for as long as I could remember.
I’d always sensed that I had a purpose, a spiritually guided mission, a reason for being here on Earth and this word validated my feelings.
What is a Lightworker?
A lightworker is someone who has a life purpose, a soul mission to make the world a better, kinder and more loving place
Lightwork is a soul calling, it’s part of your soul contract.
Lightworkers choose to come to the planet to raise consciousness andto help remove fear, ignorance and darkness replacing it with love, light, and a spiritual awareness.
Many lightworkers are old souls who have continued this Divine mission over many lifetimes.
They can be healers, psychics and spiritual teachers, artists, musicians, actors or animal carers. Whatever work they do becomes a vehicle for the spiritual light and love they bring to others.
Lightworkers can operate undercover in seemingly ordinary careers and lifestyles or be more out there with their Divine mission.
Famous lightworkers help millions to become more conscious, aware and connected: Think Oprah Winfrey, Dr Wayne Dyer, Louise Hay, Diana Cooper, Anita Moorjani, John Holland.
Some are born knowing, others are re-awakened to their purpose through a traumatic event, a near-death experience or some other meaningful incident.
There are many lightworkers awakening to their purpose right now as the world goes through profound changes.
So how do you know if you are a lightworker?
Here are 11 key signs that you are a lightworker:
- You know that you have a bigger purpose: Deep down you sense that you are here to inspire, heal and help the world in some way. You long to do something meaningful and fulfilling that makes a genuine difference to others.
- You are drawn to spiritual subjects: You could spend all your time learning, manifesting, meditating and improving yourself. When you learn new information you love to share it with others. You feel more connected and peaceful when you meditate or read loving spiritual material.
- You’ve had some tough experiences: Lightworkers are old souls who often choose big life lessons to deepen their wisdom and compassion and add more light to their soul. Everything you learn helps you with your purpose. Your bright inner light can trigger jealousy in others. You are learning to stay true to yourself and don’t let anyone dull your sparkle!
- You put others first: It makes you genuinely happy to help others. You can over do it and attract people who take advantage of your kind and giving nature. Lightworkers need to balance their giving with receiving so that they don’t burn out.
- You are intuitive /psychic: you pick up on energy and sense vibes. You get lots of signs and angel numbers from your guides and angels.
- You are deeply sensitive and empathic: You may be accused of being too sensitive but your deep empathy is part of your lightworker mission. You can be overwhelmed and drained from too much interaction. You need to learn energy protection skills to strengthen your aura and uncover your gifts.
- You are a magnet for those who need healing: Complete strangers are drawn to share their deepest fears and desires with you, friends call when they need comfort, animals and children are drawn to you. You are a wise soul, a good listener and everyone feels better after spending time with you.
- You can feel very alone: Because you are different and it isn’t always easy to find people who get you and your beliefs. Not everyone has a spiritual purpose, but it is important to seek out friends and community to share your spiritual side with.
- You are deeply affected by cruelty and injustice: You passionately want the world to change. You are an earth angel and you wish people could be more loving, kind and aware because you know this would fix everything.
- You act and speak with integrity: It is uncomfortable for you to be around people who do not. You walk your talk and shine your light. Though you have a good B.S monitor you sometimes ignore it to your detriment. When you are untrue to yourself you feel very unhappy.
- You may suffer with crippling self-doubt- Despite your gifts you likely don’t see yourself as others see you. You can second guess yourself, lack confidence and wonder if you are crazy to consider yourself a lightworker. You worry that you’re weird and that you don’t fit in. When you follow your path you’ll find your place in the world and these fears will melt away.
