What Is A Lightworker? Signs You’re A Healer Or Empath Who Can Attract Positive Energy

What is a lightworker? How do you know if you are one?

It's possible that you are a healer or empath who has enough positive energy to help those around them.

There are 5 signs that indicate this:

  1. Have you ever intentionally directed your love, caring, kindness, or attention toward another plant, animal, or a human being?
  2. Does it bring you joy to contribute to the happiness or wellbeing of another?
  3. Are you sensitive to other people’s energy — both positive and negative?  
  4. Do you try to see the best in others, and to notice what’s going well in most situations?
  5. Have you discovered for yourself how great you feel when you appreciate, and how bad you feel when you criticize?  

If you answered "yes" to even one of these, you are not only a lightworker, but you’re ready to expand your consciousness to become a transmitter of even more energy and power.  

The term "lightworker" may conjure images of reiki masters or hands-on healers, but in truth, they exist in every profession and walk of life — the parent who nurtures his child’s confidence and self-awareness, the physician who goes the extra mile to understand her patients, and even the barista who hands you your latte along with a big smile.  

In each of these interactions, high-frequency energy is the "light" that’s being exchanged.

Of course, there are many other types of energy exchange.

The guy who flies into a rage in traffic or the woman who unloads her personal frustrations on an innocent receptionist are also transmitting energy, but it’s of a much slower and denser quality.  

What makes you a light-worker is the quality of the energy you broadcast most frequently.

It’s all about energy. Everything in the universe is made up of energy.

This includes things in the outer world that you can perceive with your five senses, like your computer, your car, and your physical body.

And it also includes the things your senses can’t perceive, such as your thoughts, feelings, desires, expectations, and beliefs.

You are a walking, talking energy tower who is in every moment transmitting and receiving energy.  

When the frequency you are personally emitting is one of prosperity, generosity, healing, love, and joy, you automatically raise the vibration of all you come into contact with.

And, when you’re committed to doing this deliberately, it’s a sure sign that you’re a lightworker.

It’s important to note that everyone is occasionally a lightworker — in the sense that we all broadcast and receive high-frequency energies like love and appreciation many times each day.

But for most people, these moments of clarity and happiness are conditional.

When someone is pleasant or a situation is turning out well, they have a good-feeling response.

But when people are not behaving nicely or circumstances are not pleasing, they feel bad and, as a result, their vibration drops.  

This conditional approach to life makes us inconsistent lightworkers at best.

The desire to exercise more deliberate control over the vibration you’re offering in any given moment is a sure sign that you are ready to expand your consciousness to allow in more light and heal. 

Here are 3 steps to opening yourself up as a lightworker to receive, broadcast — and therefore, attract — even more high-frequency experiences in your life.

1. Decide in advance of each situation or interaction what frequency of light you want to shine  

If you want to strengthen the high-flying, good-feeling aspects of an intimate relationship, don’t wait until you’re on the brink of an argument to decide that you want a peaceful evening.

Instead, take a step back to remember and appreciate the most positive aspects of your significant other, of the relationship as a whole, and of yourself.

What lighthearted or loving qualities do you most enjoy expressing with this person? Is it your playfulness? Your sensuality? Your care and devotion?

By identifying ahead of time the qualities you want to bring to your next interaction, you activate and intensify that frequency of light within you.

2. Make sure you’re pouring from a full cup

You can’t give to others what you are deficient in within yourself.

To share your brightest light with the world, you have to fill yourself up with it first.  

Anytime you find your energy waning, instead of pushing through it, give yourself a moment to close your eyes, breathe, and find a better-feeling thought.

Doing things that nourish and replenish you will recharge your energy and rekindle your internal light.

3. Make feeling good your top priority

Remember, your emotions are your guide to the level of frequency you are out-putting in every moment.

The better you feel, the higher your frequency, and the lighter you are able to give and receive.

Make a commitment to keeping your own emotions flying high.  

Give yourself permission to opt out of conversations or relationships that bring you down.

Walk away from potential arguments before they start.

Take advantage of every possible opportunity to appreciate, to bask, and to flow love to those around you.  

Notice how expanding your consciousness to express more light simultaneously expands your ability to receive.
