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, naïve 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.
