Just what is, a Lightworker?

  • Posted on June 14, 2011 at 9:29 pm

Introducing myself to a new martial arts student, I mentioned that I am a lightworker. This is a common term amongst many of my friends, but I was reminded that it is not yet a universal term when I was asked “What is a Lightworker?”.

So I thought it would be interesting to note down what my thoughts are, in terms of a definition…

Firstly, let me share what Google returned through an online search:

  • Lightworker – The New Age (also referred to as the New Age movement, New Age spirituality, and Cosmic Humanism) is a decentralized Western social and spiritual movement that seeks “Universal Truth” and the attainment of the highest individual human potential. … en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lightworker
  • Lightworker – A person driven and motivated to do work which makes the world a better place, improves peoples’ lives, and/or elevates people to a higher level of consciousness en.wiktionary.org/wiki/lightworker
  • Lightworkers – are those who seek the truth on their spiritual journey toward Enlightenment. They feel the urge to heal others and a deep need to resolve the world’s problems . They very often feel compelled to write, teach, or counsel others; and know without a doubt that they are here for a higher purpose. … www.amorillum.com/page3.htm

And now to my thoughts:
I see a lightworker as someone who consciously chooses to bring greater love, peace and happiness to people’s lives.

A lightworker is someone who develops themselves deliberately, knowing that any improvement they make in their own life will most often times help others.

A lightworker is compassionate and non-judgemental, leads by example, and realises that all people are doing the best they know how, with the knowledge they have, at any point in time.

Many lightworkers have studied ways of helping and healing others, and it is their great joy to share their knowledge in assisting others to better their lives.

These are the ideals I do my best to live up to.
I, too, am still learning, and don’t always achieve it. But I am very clear about they type of person that I choose to be, and use this framework to assess options and make choices in alignment with these ideals whenever I can.

Are you a lightworker too? Many, many people do a number of these things naturally, and add huge amounts of light and love to our world. We are blessed to have these people in our lives, and give thanks for their presence and uplifting natures. If this is your nature, I invite you to also make it a conscious decision, set an intention for your life and join the many of us who are empowering ourselves and others in making our world a better place.

I would love to hear what you think, or if you have any extra ideas on the characteristics that define a lightworker. Please leave me a comment!
With infinite love & gratitude,
Amanda
