~Light Workers~

For the past few months I’ve been working with my Spirit Sister who is teaching me how to work with energy and light. I have learned so many things, some not as pleasant as others. But as with any type of growth and change, you need to get to the cause of something before you can improve on it.

I’ve been confused a bit as to what a *light worker* is and what they do. After reading everything she has sent to me, I think I may have gotten the beginning of an idea just exactly what it means to be a light worker. I am nowhere near to being comfortable to calling myself a Light Worker, but I’ve started taking baby steps down this path and I am anxious to continue on this journey.  

So, what exactly IS a light worker and what do they do? According to Pamela Kribbe, “Light workers are souls who carry the strong inner desire to spread Light – knowledge, freedom and self-love – on earth. They are often attracted to spirituality and to therapeutic work of some kind.” Well, this would fit in with the concept I envision for the Wellness Center I dream of having after I finish my studies at Ashford.

From some of the things I have been reading in order to further my understanding of what a light worker is I've found many of the traits that describe a light worker also fit me in the past as well as the here and now…

  • 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 jobs and/or organization structures. Light workers are naturally anti-authoritarian which means that 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.
  • Light workers feel drawn to helping people as a therapist or as a teacher. They may be psychologists, healers, teachers, nurses, etc. 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 honor 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 kingdoms on earth by human doing invokes deep feelings of loss and grief in them.
  • They are kind-hearted, sensitive and empathic. They may have trouble dealing with aggressive behavior and they generally experience difficulties in standing up for themselves. They can be dreamy, naive 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, etc. 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, realms 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.

I’ve also found out one cannot train to be a light worker but you can learn to recognize your innate light worker traits. You can learn how to look after yourself as you go through the neurological, physical, emotional & energetic transformations involved in your emergence as a light worker. You can study to develop your innate gifts & abilities & equip yourself with the tools to help you serve others. And in fact being a light worker is a choice made before being born. As a light worker a person is born with an energy matrix & blueprint carrying their potential as a light worker, just as the caterpillar comes into the world carrying the blueprint to at some point transform & become a butterfly.

There are many important steps to understand, accepting and embracing the role of light worker, among these steps are:

  • Recognize & lovingly accept yourself as a light worker. Learn about what it means to be one.
  • Learn self-care & a daily practice of healing & nourishing yourself.
  • Release & forgive your past & yourself for the times you hid your light & your truth & didn’t speak up.
  • Find your ‘resonant family’ or soul group of fellow light workers.
  • Learn Energy Skills for ‘energy hygiene’, grounding, boundaries & Source connection.
  • Get a mentor & use creative tools to energize your soul purpose & joyful work.
  • Embrace being different!

I have a VERY long road on this new journey I’ve embarked on. I’m nervous and excited at the same time. I look forward to seeing where this new path is going to lead me. I hope you will come along with me on my journey to knowledge and enlightenment...
