Nothing can Dim the Light that Shines from Within
– Mary Angelou
You’ve heard the term often enough, right? I’m guessing there’s a part of you, deep down, that feels a connection to it (even though you’re still not sure of it’s meaning). Well today is your lucky day. Because I’m about to delve into my own interpretation and let you in on the mystery.
What exactly is a Lightworker?
In the most basic of nutshells, it’s anyone that is open to living in pure love. They have already woken up to the calling of their soul, and are ready to shine their own unique light in the world.
Whatever a lightworker does helps to raise the vibration of the planet. They choose to follow their heart and live their own joy, doing the things that spark happiness in them – when they do this, they spread the message of love. Lightworkers yearn to make their own life pretty damn awesome. They wish for the world to be a brighter place, and understand that they are part of something much bigger. They know they are here to fulfill a purpose.
YOU WERE BORN TO LIGHT UP THE WORLD
But it’s not as fluffy as it initially sounds. Being a lightworker goes way deeper than being a force of unicorn goodness. You must be your own light before anything else, and this involves a journey of self-discovery. This journey requires you to heal wounds, to accept yourself unconditionally and to do the work day in and day out. When a lightworker follows their own inner calling, things naturally align around them and this radiates light (which not only touches others, but the entire planet too)

11 signs that you’re a lightworker:
1. You’re wise beyond your years
There’s no doubt you’ve been called an old soul before. With so many past lives under your belt, your soul is basically holding all that collective wisdom. You seem to have a lot of unexplained knowledge, and the perspective you have on things is spooky
2. You’re highly empathic and sensitive to the energy of others
You easily pick up the feelings of those around you, and this can result in overwhelm and tiredness. There’s possibly times when you’re confused which feelings are actually yours, leaving you drained (and grumpy)
3. You have a deeper sense of purpose
You feel called to do something of importance, and to be of service to others. There’s a need to help and you just know you have a mission in this lifetime
4. You don’t feel like you belong
There’s a natural loner inside of you and you feel somewhat ‘different’ to others. People don’t seem to understand you, and if you’re honest, their vibrations only drag you down
5. You have a deep love for the planet
There’s a strong connection to nature and to animals, and you feel protective towards them. All you want is for the world to be a better place and for people to respect the environment (littering makes your blood boil)
6. You’re very interested in all things spiritual
You understand that there’s more to life and you want to know everything. Personal development is a huge love of yours because you know it’s your gateway to being your greatest self
7. Your intuition is on fire
There’s a strong psychic awareness and even though you can’t explain it, you always seem to know what’s coming and the best action to take (you also have a great sense of when someone’s lying to you)
8. You’re highly imaginative
Not only can you easily conjure up a fantasy world inside your head, but your dreams are mega vivid too – you may not always remember them but your dreams bring so many messages from the ‘other side’
9. You’re a mega powerful manifestor
The law of attraction seems to love you and wishes often come true without much effort – you literally think it and get it. It’s a gift you can’t explain, yet it’s so natural
10. You’ve experienced a spiritual awakening or traumatic event
These challenges or difficulties were intended to ‘wake you up’ to your spiritual calling (and when you look back at them, can see they were the blessings you needed)
11. You’re drawn to the healing or mystic arts
Reiki, crystals, herbs, oils, divination – you love it all (and if you haven’t got a stash of oracle decks already, they’re certainly on your wish list)
