How To Know If You’re a Lightworker

A lightworker is a person who came to Earth with the specific intention of helping others, being of service to humanity, and/or changing the world for the better.

Not everyone who comes to Earth is a lightworker, but there are millions of lightworkers on the planet today. Some work on a global level and some impact people locally or just personally.

You can choose to be a lightworker before you come to Earth, but you are not necessarily a lightworker in each life.

Being a lightworker is not a status you obtain but a choice you make to make serving the greater good your priority, as opposed to seeking your own pleasure during an incarnation.

You are not a bad person if you aren’t a lightworker. Some people go to Disneyland to ride the attractions and some people work at Disneyland making it a magical experience for the attendees. It’s simply a choice about which kind of life you want to have this time around.

So how can you tell if you’re a lightworker?

You genuinely care about the well-being of others
Lightworkers care about people. They want to make sure others are happy, safe, and have what they need. They are caretakers, and will go out of their way to help someone in need. If a lightworker hears that someone or a group is in trouble they will feel a strong desire to offer assistance.

You try to raise other people’s vibrations
A lightworker will intuitively read someone’s vibration and try to raise it. So if someone is depressed, sad, anxious, angry, or fearful, a lightworker will attempt to bring that person to a higher vibration like joy, love, compassion, and hope.

You actively seek a path that solves a perceived world problem
Some lightworkers want to make the world a better place to live. These lightworkers tend to gravitate towards careers in medical research, science, entrepreneurship, technology, or the non-profit sector. They bring water, medicine, and sustainable agriculture to third world countries or help install infrastructure to struggling communities.

You actively seek a path that educates and inspires others to action
Some lightworkers try to bring awareness to issues plaguing society. For example film makers, writers, speakers, journalists, and politicians. The goal here is to make people aware of social injustice or inequalities and help shift the planet towards justice and equality for all.

You actively seek the path of a healer
Many lightworkers go into healing professions that assist people with physical, mental, emotional or spiritual problems. These people will gravitate towards careers in social work, psychology, medicine, energy healing, ministering, counseling, or therapy. These people want to hold your energy and help you process your trauma and heal from it.

You have great empathy
A lightworker will be affected by the plight of others. These people will feel great compassion and care for people and things that don’t really have anything to do with them personally. You’ll find these folks helping animals, assisting their neighbors, volunteering in their community, and being good listeners.

You have strong intuitive skills
Most lightworkers will be very in tune with the other side. They will be in close contact with their spirit guides and receive guidance on their path so that they can fulfill their life intention to help others.

This doesn’t mean all lightworkers will be in conscious contact with their guides, but the channel is open and the lightworker will often act on their intuition even unconsciously.

Lightworkers who are working the social justice angle or trying to bring awareness to the planet will often be in contact with the ascended masters, who work on our overall planetary goals.

Being a lightworker is a gift to humanity. You incarnated with the intention to help others and be of service to humanity. You will work tirelessly on behalf of those who lack personal power in their lives, and you will go out of your way to offer assistance to those who need it.

Do you feel you have chosen the life of a lightworker in this incarnation?
