Read on to learn about lightworkers!

Lightworkers, also known as star seeds, Earth angels, and Indigos, are spiritual beings in human existence sent here to heal. I am a lightworker, and you may be too. As lightworkers, we each have a purpose or mission to complete. This is the reason we incarnated on the Earthly plane.

We specifically volunteered to be here during Earth's most crucial times, which came before and after the year 2000. We are working in a concerted effort to spread our loving energies and dissipate the destructive and negative mass consciousness. Many lightworkers are on the Earth plane at this time with the specific purpose of using our knowledge of healing to teach, counsel, write, heal, and enlighten others.

Our most vital contributions to planet Earth and its inhabitants take place in the mental and spiritual planes. Consequently, if a lightworker frets over a world problem or issue and becomes frustrated, feeling unable to contribute positively through bodily efforts, their healing abilities may be thwarted. This adds fuel to the mass world consciousness of fear, which is the opposite of a lightworker's ultimate goal.

In the case of terrorists, rapists, murderers, and criminals of all variations, rather than succumbing to human feelings of fear, disgust, rejection, and hate, a lightworker must focus on sending love, light, and healing to the perpetrator. To feel and send negative energies only fosters more negativity, feeding the fear mentally.

We are bound to encounter resistance from people who fear or misunderstand our motives, but we must not react to their fears, because lightworkers are able to manifest and heal anything and anyone as long as they continue to possess the essence of love.

Every instance we experience pain serves as a lesson, helping us to learn, grow, and find ways to live in peaceful happiness. Our lessons on Earth are also valuable in our roles as lightworkers because they give us the personal experience to empathize with those who become our clients, students, friends, and associates.

Our mission depends upon our learning how to stay centered in love. Our promise to help the world obliges us to restrain our ego and choose thoughts of love instead of those of guilt and fear. We must be willing to let go of our petty, ego-based concerns, so that we can focus our entire mind on our vital tasks.

Lightworkers are born to perform healing functions. They will be attracted to and involved in emotional healing, physical healing, research, teaching, writing, the arts, counseling, and other similar subjects.

Those who are called to spiritual healing will be working in the true self realm. Their job is to help others change from ego to true self. They are also able to call upon angels and holy masters to evoke healing.

Your inner guide will lead you to the place or role you belong. You will know whether you are supposed to get training or educational certification. If you are, then your inner guide will lead you to the right teacher, course, or school. Also, the universe will help you find a way to afford the course and lesson fees. The people who will be your future clients and students will be led to you through their own inner guides.

Don’t worry about how you will learn to do your lightworking function, just trust that you will.

Don’t worry about how you will learn to do your lightworking function, just trust that you will.

Each lightworker receives their own unique set of assignments in regard to how they will most effectively heal the world. They may be called upon to do healing work on either the ego plane of energy and matter, or the true self spiritual plane.

In energy healing work, a lightworker uses their natural psychic tuning abilities to see and feel their client’s energy centers. The energy work may also incorporate psychic healing, in which you tune into emotions and thoughts that are creating problems for a client. Energy work also includes mediumship, which involves working with the energy fields of deceased people who may be affecting the living.

A lightworker’s purpose in conducting psychic readings is different from the common image of a parlor-style fortuneteller. Lightworkers are here to fulfill healing functions, but psychic abilities help them to hear, see, feel, and know the source of someone’s emotional and/or physical distress.

In closing, it is important to take deep breaths, as this is how the spirit world transmits information to us. It is also very important to watch your thoughts regarding other people. All spiritual texts emphasize that the way we think about others affects the way we think about ourselves. How you think and treat another is how you think and treat yourself. Therefore, consciously look and treat others with the same sort of respect that you wish others would treat you.

Take Part in Group Healing Prayers

The power of prayer to heal has been widely documented, and there is a great deal of scientific evidence and medical research about their remarkable curing powers. While one person’s prayers alone can heal any condition, there is a lot of evidence that group prayers cause remarkable healing.

One prayer is like a singular light beam, but when we join together in prayer, they combine and shine much brighter.

nice article.

Joe on May 05, 2020:

Oh dear.

Peer reviewed science for healing... no thought not....

How much are you all charging for this 'healing'?

Seriously some people believe any old rubbish.

Daniel Avey on April 30, 2020:

Came to me after a prayer of asking for continued guidance in finding my Soul mission. It all started with 1111 and after about a year of guidance from the angels tonight my lesson was 1101. Thank you for this article. It came to me after I read 1101 tonight. Then when I was done reading 1101 it was 1111. So I reread 1111 and then this article popped up. This is power of prayer and proof that this article is 100% accurate! Thank you so much for what you do!

Kantrelle on April 11, 2020:

This is a truly fantastic and enlightening article. Thank you so much for this valuable contribution.

If your not going to kill them might as well heal them. Trauma can cause anyone to lose their way.

For Marcus,

I have found that when certain situations keep happening to me, there is a lesson somewhere I need to review and integrate within myself. People are reflections of us, whether we realize or not. The only reality that we each individually have comes directly from our personal perspective of our environments. We all live in completely different worlds.

Change the perspective. Find the lesson. Integrate it and find gratitude for the people who have assisted you to learn it most effectively. These are our greatest teachers, and they do their task well.

Charmaine on May 15, 2019:

Thanls i dont have a way to pick up

Faith on May 06, 2019:

Hi Marcus,

What you say makes good sense and I see why you're fed up, frustrated and possibly feel duped by the expression. Yes, I agree with you, people can suck, and yes people hurt and they do take advantage. Part of the expression, in my humble view, is to respect and love yourself first, and in doing so, you'll be able to help those around you while maintaining a solid footing. Treating others well and helping them does not mean that you should be a walking mat or allow them to take advantage of you. That really just teaches them to remain in an unenlightened state. It reinforces their poor decision making and really doesn't help them at all. It certainly doesn't do anything for you but diminish your light. In all honesty, some people are also just not ready for help, for kindness, or for understanding, and some have never experienced kindness / generosity etc. and don't trust these virtues. You can be a wonderful person, which it sounds like you are, but it doesn't mean that you have to cater to others at your expense.

Marcus on April 23, 2019:

"treat others with the same sort of respect that you wish others would treat you"...

That's actually the problem right there. I used to be one of those people who lived my life by that rule and all it's done is cause me grief and trauma. As a direct result of "treating others with the same respect that you wish others would treat you" I've ended up being taken advantage of, misused, abused and treated like a door matt by people. People treat me like shit, despite my respect and kindness. If I were to treat people with just a tiny fraction of the mistreatment they've subjected me to, they would scream bloody murder. No one is willing to tolerate the same type of bad behaviour they inflict on me. And yet I continue to bite my tongue at my own expense for the sake of peace and at the cost of my own health.

Regina A Brown from United States on March 11, 2019:

Thank You for this explanation and knowing what I am suppose to do on my journey. :)

Dru on February 28, 2019:


What you are recognizing is judgement, which is a natural defense mechanism of ego. The purpose of ego is to put a wall between you and what your soul recognizes as true—resonates with, as you said. Next is your choice to either let it "protect" you from the truth your soul can already see, or not.

AliciaLindberg on January 20, 2019:

I really resonate with being a lightworker and what that means but just the tone of the text disturbes me. I don’t know why and I wish it didn’t, same with some of the comments. They feel too strong too convinced, anyone else who feels the same way? The text doesn’t feel like it’s from a person who is a lightworker, (I’m not saying they are not) it’s probably only the connotations I’ve with some of the words. I’m curious if it’s just me and it really is only the wording. Love that you are all trying to spread love and wisdom!

Shinedownshop on December 24, 2018:

Bahahaha! I don't like you! But fuck, You're so right!

Had a cat motorcycle accidet, that has awakened me. This video truly enlightened me to believe that I'm not sane like other people, I seriously thought that I was going crazy and had no support. Thanks to my Angels guided and protected and you for illuminating the path.

Mark Higgins on October 26, 2018:

Yunno i saw a woderful video and looked you up...this seems like a sick cult and should be investigated by the FBI. Show love to Rapists and Murderers ?

Monica on October 17, 2018:

I finally understand. This all makes so much Sence to me.

Née on October 17, 2018:

Very clearly written article about what a lightworker is and purpose. Just discovered I was one. Thank you!

Helen Malsbary on October 13, 2018:

Ever since I was a young child. When I got angry, I wouldn't curse or swear. I would be saying some kinda gibberish. A lot of the times as I got older, I had found, I kinda have used some of to say the same gibberish. I know, I'm a lightworks :-) I agree 100% with what you said in the video! I have known since I was a young child :-)

simone25gr on October 08, 2018:
