What Are Lightworkers?

What Are Lightworkers?

Lightworkers are souls who carry the strong inner desire to spread Light
(knowledge, freedom and self-love) on earth.
They sense this as their mission.

     They are often attracted to spirituality and to therapeutic work of some kind. Because of their deeply felt mission, lightworkers often feel different from other people. By experiencing different kinds of obstacles on their way,life provokes them to find their own, unique path.Lightworkers nearly always are solitary individuals, not fitting into fixed societal structures.

     The word ..lightworker' may evoke misunderstanding,since it lifts out a particular group of souls from the rest. In addition, it may be taken to suggest that this particular group is somehow superior to the others,i.e. those ..not working for the light'. This whole line of thought is at odds with the very nature and intent of lightwork. Let us state briefly what is wrong with it.

  -   First, claims of superiority are generally unenlightened. They block your growth toward a free and loving consciousness.

  -   Second, Lightworkers are not ..better' or ..higher' than anyone else. They simply have a different history than the ones not belonging to this group. Because of this particular history, they have certain psychological characteristics which distinguish them as a group.

  -   Third, every soul becomes a lightworker at some stage of its unfolding, so the label ..lightworker' is not reserved to a limited number of souls.

     The reason we use the word "lightworker"(despite possible misunderstandings) is because it carries associations and stirs memories within you that help you remember. There is a practical convenience to it as well, since the term is frequently used in your current spiritual literature. Historical roots of lightworkers

     Lightworkers carry within them the ability to attain spiritual awakening faster than other people. They carry inner seeds for a rapid spiritual awakening. With regard to this, they seem to be on a faster track than most people, if they choose so. This, again, is not because lightworkers are in any way ..better' or ..higher' souls.

     They are, however, older than most souls presently incarnate on earth. This older age should preferably be understood in terms of ..experience', rather than ..time'. Lightworkers have reached a particular stage of enlightenment, before they incarnate on earth and start their mission.

     They consciously choose to become entrenched in the ..karmic wheel of life' and to experience all forms of confusion and illusion that go with it. They do this in order to fully understand ..earth experience'. This will enable them to fulfil their mission.

     Only by going through all stages of ignorance and illusion themselves ~ will they eventually own the tools to help others achieve a state of true happiness and enlightenment

     Outline of Psychological characteristics of lightworkers: A few characteristics of lightworker souls, which generally distinguish them from other people ~ From early on in their life, they feel they are different. More often than not, they feel isolated from others, lonely and misunderstood. They will often become individualists, who will have to find their own unique ways in life. They have trouble feeling at home within traditional jobsand/or organization structures.

     Lightworkers are naturally anti-authoritarian, which means they naturally resist decisions or values based solely on power or hierarchy. This anti-authoritarian trait is present even if they seem timid and shy. It is connected to the very essence of their mission here on earth.

     Lightworkers feel drawn to helping people, as a therapist or as a teacher.

     They may be psychologists, healers, teachers, nurses, etcetera.
Even if their profession is not about helping people in a direct manner, the intent to contribute to the higher good of humanity is clearly present.

     Their vision of life is colored by a spiritual sense of how all things are related together.

     They consciously or subconsciously carry memories within them of non-earthly spheres of light.

     They may - occasionally - feel homesick for these spheres and feel like a stranger on earth.

     They deeply honour and respect life,which often manifests as a fondness for animals and a concern for the environment. The destruction of parts of the animal and vegetable kingdom on earth by man's doing invokes deep feelings of loss and grief in them.

     They are kind-hearted, sensitive and empathic.

     They may have trouble dealing with aggressive behaviour and they generally experience difficulties in standing up for themselves.

     They can be dreamy, na├»ve or highly idealistic, as well as insufficiently grounded, i.e. down-to-earth. Because they easily pick up (negative) feelings and moods of people around them, it is important for them to spend time alone on a regular basis.

     This enables them to distinguish between their own feelings and those of others.

     They need solitary time to touch base with themselves and with mother earth.

     They have lived many lives on earth in which they were deeply involved with spirituality and/or religion.

     They were present in overwhelming numbers in the old religious orders of your past, as monks, nuns,hermits, psychics, witches, shamans, priests, priestesses, etcetera.

     They were the ones providing a bridge between the visible and the invisible,between the daily context of earth-life and the mysterious realms of the afterlife, of God and the spirits of good and evil. For fulfilling this role, they were often rejected and persecuted.

Many of you were sentenced to the stake for the gifts you possessed.
The traumas of persecution left deep traces within your soul's memory.

     This may presently manifest as a fear of being fully grounded, i.e. a fear to be really present, because you remember being brutally attacked for who you were. Because of the values and judgments fed to them by society, which often go against their own natural impulses, many Lightworkers have gotten lost, ending up in states of self-doubt, self-denial and even depression and hopelessness. This is because they cannot fit into the established order of things and they conclude there must be something terribly wrong with them~ this is a horrible sabbatoge technique ~ that must be released~
It requires great determination and perseverance on the inner level to overcome these patterns of self doubt and denial.

     What lightworkers have to do at this point is to stop looking for validation from the outside, from parents, friends or society. At some point of time, you (who are reading this) will have to take the momentous leap to true empowerment, which means to really believe in yourself.


  1. That was truly beautiful & wonderfully written. Thank You.

  2. All i read in the description of lightworkers above perfectly picture my own self! I always felt i was different from the majority! I also feel i am an old soul who has gone through many incanations with important experiences! I really want to help people, i am sensitive, sentimental, dreamy, idealist, complicated! I feel lonely and although i have a normal social life, privacy is very importnant to me. Everything that has to do with the occult...attracts me! I receive energies of other people and i have noticed that i attract human pain and people that suffer (or need help) in some way.
    I have empathy and can understand other people's feelings, but i feel that most people can't understand me. With almost no effort (and without being helped or taught by anybody) i learnt astrology and palmistry! I feel that i have a deep connection with my dreams (some of which have proven to be prophetic). Finally, everyday i see the number 1111 or the time 11:11...and from a very young age my favourite date was November 11th (11.11). What's your opinion for my case?Thank you very much for your attention and congratulation for your article.

  3. Thank you so much.

  4. i found myself in this description. its amazing that everyting was accurate as i feel. i always wanted to help living beings ant that made me healer...

    My name is Sharon Parker. I am 53, happily married w/3 kids and reside in the very small rural town of Waveland, IN. I was born in CT. Ever since I was a small child, I instinctively knew I was much different than most of the children I grew up and attended school with. I always feel as if I'm on the "outside looking in" yet, I no longer feel like an outsider. I have learned to accept myself and accept my many gifts and blessings. I don't worry about peoples judgements. I knew very early I am meant to be a healer as well as a teacher. I am 1/4 Cherokee/Shoshone as well as descended from a Welsh Witch. We relocated to IN because of my husband's job transfer. During residence in CT, I had some difficulty establishing and helping people understand what some of my abilities are. Most people became better educated and less subjective towards what we do during my years in CT. Now, living in the upper midwestern Bible Belt has become a greater challenge and task my soul has set for itself. I believe we are pulled and destined for however long to certain geographical areas for various reasons. I believe a door opened for my husband in order to eventually change jobs, closing another when he left the other. The same opportunity was for me as well, although, my challenge is greater. Many people where we live are very scared and are not allowed much exposure to Metaphysical and Spiritual Gifts & knowledge. Their very prevelant faiths don't allow it. Since moving here, my husband is now "Born Again." He is from IN. He was never allowed exposure to the many positive faiths I was. I experienced more diversity which therefore, resolved any fearful thoughts of what some issues could be. Life is what we make of it. I am still sometimes confronted with much fear & ignorance re: the Occult/Metaphysics yet, I am determined to properly educate those willing to learn that which I am able and certified to teach. I will not give up. I believe my soul chose such a task and will learn what is necessary for me in order that my soul continues to evolve for its highest & greatest good, as all souls are given the same chances. It is what each of us choose to do or not do that will determine our potentials.

  6. I came around here just by chance and cannot believe the divine intervention I just experienced. Every word every line and every experience that was written by ''anonymous' reader is what I am - including the triple number existent.
    Just to let you know- 1111 or similar series when continually keeps presenting themselves to you is a form of angel communication.I can expand more but I am not sure if the reader is around..?
    Kindly respond..would love to talk to you!

  7. Dear Minie..
    EXPAND! I am like "anonymous" also.
    You are alwyas welcomed here... all comments are welcomed.
    Be Blessed & Joyful

  8. I have needed to hear all the above..
    I too are very similar to anonynous. In 2006 I bought the book The Davinci Method which helped me alot. Has anybody else read this? I had it shipped to me (australia.) xo

  9. Hello,

    I came across the word lightworker and was lead to this page. I am amazed by what I just read. I can't believe most of which I have read applies to me. I too have been experiencing the 1111/11:11 "sign or symbols" as I call it. When I first started seeing these numbers, I have to admit I was a little scared but after researching I now believe those hold a very significant meaning. Minie could you please tell me more. I can't tell even begin to count the number of times i've see those numbers this year. Everywhere I go, it's just there.
    Thanks for this blog!

  10. what has the number 11 got to do with lightworkers? i have recently began seeing it every time i look at clock and i'm very similar to the words i just read. i dont understand what i have to do though can someone explain this?
