What is a Lightworker?
A Lightworker is someone that recognizes what illuminates their soul and shares that light with the world. Lightworkers know how to find the light in the darkest of places and ignite the same desire to find the light in all who encounter them.
We know that our actions have the potential to raise the vibration of the world. Because of this knowledge, we find ourselves in the position of rescuing the world from darkness. Healing all those around us that are blind to the light that exists within them.
Lightworkers achieve this level of healing by harnessing the universal energies that surround us, then infusing that energy into all that we encounter.
Everyone has the Potential, but Many of Us Reside in the Closet
For most of us, we find that we have been in the spiritual closet. We are afraid to come out and show the world our spiritual side for fear of ridicule and judgment.
By releasing the fear of measuring up to societal norms, we can allow the magic of life to unfold. Being our true selves frees our spirits and allows the light to flow freely through our lives and through the universe.
Step outside of your comfortable little closet. It is then that you can successfully and prolifically share your light with others.
How You Can be a Lightworker
Chances are, you have already been dabbling with the light your entire life. Just by reading this post, you are already working in the light. You acknowledge that there is Universal energy in this world and you are ready to learn how to share it.
Here are some ways that you can begin your journey as a Lightworker:
1. Recognize the Light Within You.
Find what illuminates your soul. What lights you up like no other. Do what you love, do it often, and share that with the world. That is what working with your light is all about.
Know that your passions matter and that the world needs what you have to offer.
2. Release the Fear of Measuring Up
Much easier said than done, but to be your true self you must release your fear of measuring up to societal norms. Be your own, unique, beautiful, weird self.
Not a single opinion of anyone else matters more than your own opinion of yourself.
3. Release the Fear of Diminishing the Light of Others
Very often, we are afraid of shining our lights as brightly as we can for fear of diminishing those around us. Ridicule from our past comes back to haunt us as we remember the unwanted jealousy of those that wanted to be more like us.
The thing is, that jealousy comes from a place of darkness and longing for a light of their own to shine. Diminishing your own light to appease those that are spiritually closed off will do nothing for the betterment of the world.
Hold your head high and allow your light to come from a place of confidence, compassion, and love. It will never truly diminish the light of those around you. Instead, you will inspire others to match your intensity.
4. Find the Light in Others
Welcome everyone into your heart, regardless of differences. We all are a part of the same universal energy.
Build others up. Illuminate their paths. Moreover, teach them that they matter.
Always look for the good in their souls and find ways to pull it out of them so that they too can shine brightly. Because it is much easier to heal the planet with the help of others.
5. Share Your Smile
Something as simple as flashing a smile at a stranger walking past you is enough. A single smile is like a beacon of positivity that can break through any wall built by sadness, anger, and despair.
Smiles are infectious. Most people can’t help but reflexively smile back. It is in that instant that the healing of the soul can be felt, if even for a brief moment.
6. Allow You Inner Child to Shine Through
No one can help but to be affected by the pure, loving light that beams from a happy child. Babies, toddlers, and children are natural lightworkers. They only know the light and spend their entire day beaming that light to all that they encounter.
So, allow yourself to connect to your inner child. Let yourself play and be free of the constraints of time. Giggle more. Explore more. Let your imaginations run wild.
Live your life in constant wonder of the magic and beauty of the world around you. Do what makes you happy and then share it with the world.
7. Listen to Others
Allow others, even strangers, to talk to you. As a lightworker, people will be drawn to you and feel compelled to tell you their stories. Somehow, they intuitively know that you are a healer, and feel completely comfortable telling you their entire life story.
Above all, teach yourself to listen to hear what they are saying and be there for them instead of listening to reply. Be the shoulder to cry on. To be sure, just listening and being present is enough to share your light.
8. Share Your Own Story
Talk about how you came to be a lightworker and healer. Talk about your rocky past. Share your experience of coming out of your spiritual closet. Inspire others to do the same.
More people will be inspired to come out of their own closet after hearing about the bravery and boldness of others.
9. Practice Mindfulness, Meditation, and Gratitude
Forcing yourself to stay present and in the moment as well as teaching yourself to clear your mind of the day-to-day worries will help you to focus on your lightwork.
Additionally, practicing daily gratitude will help you to rewire your brain to constantly look for everyday things that you are grateful for. Once you realize all that you have in your life to be grateful for, your light will shine brighter and influence all those who are around you to do the same.
10. Give to Those in Need
Lend a helping hand to those in need without being asked. Look for ways in which you can help others around you. Moreover, practice being more generous. Not only with money and material things, but also with your time and energy.
As you may know, what you put out into the universe comes right back to you. So, be sure that you are putting out what you would like to receive in return. Not because you expect anything in return, but because you would like others to do the same to you in your own times of need.
11. Tell Others About the Beauty that You See in Them
Compliment strangers on their smiles, clothes, voices, hairstyle, choice of reading material, or anything else that captures your attention. Don’t be afraid to speak up when you see something beautiful and meaningful in someone else.
Hearing a compliment from you could be the one event that changes the course of their day. It can spark something within their soul and bring about instant happiness. Spread that love.
12. Express Your Love Freely
Hug your loved ones tight. Give your babies and loved ones lots of kisses. Tell them how much you love them. Every. Single Day.
In addition, make it a habit to regularly tell your friends that you love them. Rid yourself of the fear of expressing love to your friends and family. It will bring a smile to their faces when they hear you say it, and it will become a habit of their own to tell you how much they love you in return.
Surely, there is no reason why we should hold back our sentiments of love from all who touch our lives. Now, more than ever, love is what this world needs.
