9 Signs You May be a Light Worker

9 Signs You May be a Light Worker

Do you feel like you have a strong calling to bring healing to the world?

You could be a light worker.

Many of the worlds’ population are made up of them – and if you aren’t a light worker yourself, you’ve most likely met one.

Light workers carry a strong sense of desire to produce positive energy in the world. They use their gifts to spread the divine wisdom of love for self and others, freedom, knowledge, and self-mastery to align ever closer with pure, loving energy.

If people have told you that you have a “pure heart”, that you inspire them, or that you warm their spirits, especially when they’re feeling down, this life for you may be meant to work the light. A light worker feels much different than those around them, and often becomes intertwined in the spiritual community to help identify, and heal, the ills of the world around them.

If you’re not sure whether you were put here to work the light (or not), these 9 signs will help you identify:

9 Signs You May be a Light worker


1. You are sensitive

A light worker’s spirit is very pure, and many of the negative things that go on in this world can be difficult for them to understand. They may also find difficulty in dealing with people who display intense emotions such as aggression and anger.

As the light worker travels through life and negative events occur, they seem to have a more profound effect, leaving them to feel tired, and feel the need for self-care to restore their clarity and energy levels.

2. Being alone feels normal.

From early on in their life, a light worker can feel isolated from others, lonely, or misunderstood. As they experience all of life’s challenges, they will often find further isolation as they seek their unique path.

And because they easily pick up negative feelings and moods of people around them, it is important for them to spend time alone on a regular basis. This introverted nature doesn’t really come from a social preference or temperament; it is simply at the core of the light worker’s spirit.

3. You are empathetic

The light worker is drawn to grow their sense of understanding in the world, and will often reach into the dark corners of life to gain this perspective. Doing more than simply sympathizing, the light worker cares for others from a place rooted deep within them.

They continue to grow more compassionate as their experience unfolds, and the direct effects of that effort is intended to ultimately help grow empathy in the hearts of others.


4. You have a strong desire to help people

Because of a light worker’s empathetic nature, they often take up careers of service to others. Whether as a counselor, nurse, or even teacher of any kind, it is all further verification of a light worker’s dedication to make a solid contribution to the higher good of humanity.

5. You honor and respect the spiritual sense of life

The light worker sees a grander vision of the world. Like a small cog in a big machine, light workers realize that they are a small, but integral part of life that can have an effect on the world. Almost like panning out with a camera, the light worker is tuned into a spiritual sense that all things are related, and that with every action comes a very real reaction.

When the Earth witnesses destruction through the many pursuits of man, the light worker can feel a sense of loss, and even perhaps grief. This deep connection often leads to a close connection with animals and the environment, possibly even prompting their life’s work in one of these fields.

6. You’re a bit of a rebel

As the light worker is a bit different and doesn’t seem to quite “fit in” to the mold of society. Hierarchical structures don’t often work well in traditional organizations, and the authority that goes with them often make a light worker feel the need to rebel.

This anti-authoritarian nature is at the core of the light workers being. It is connected to their life work to set a new way of living that transcends the blockages of spiritual evolution here on Earth.

7. You act as a voice for humankind.

Light workers often act as a representative for mankind through their own creative expression.  They depict the mental activities of society through the liberal arts, giving a voice to the thoughts of culture as a whole.

Throughout history, many sages have connected us through a depiction of their visualization in the most creative ways.  The light worker finds fulfillment in this self-expression. Their creativity, knowledge and intuitive nature make an impact on those they meet and ripple through humankind.

8. You admire the cosmos

Have you ever felt like you had “another home” in the great space beyond? The light worker has a fascination with the stars and expansion beyond our mere Earthly existence, feeling as if they’re directly connected with something beyond this planet.

The light worker’s connection to source, the divine, and all that is in the Universe is strong in their spirit as they are guided to bring the light to where they are now.

9. You find yourself drawn to inspiration and personal development.

Light  workers are always being guided to live as their best selves and help others attain the same. Who we are and who we are going to be can be seen in our daily habits, and as we are drawn to the light, we look to surround ourselves with inspiration, positivity and personal development activities. This could be in the form of physical, mental, or spiritual.

For example, you may be drawn to reading self help books, practicing yoga, meditation, praying, personal development seminars, running, walking, going to church, listening to audio books, etc.

Live to learn to love.
Learn to love to live.
Love to live to learn
so that you may live the life that you yearn.
~ Rico Dasheem

Most of all, Light workers can be free from seeking validation outside themselves as they realize the true empowerment that lies within. It is up to each light worker to continue helping to spread that message by shining their own luminescence outward.

    I think I am a light worker, I knew from a very young age I would be a Nurse. Since the age of 15 I have worked in Nursing Homes, Private Duty. I also joined the Army and was a Medical Specialist and then did schooling for Nursing. I just stopped working a few years ago due to my own medical problems but miss helping people terribly! I am very sensitive and empathetic. I like to be around people if I am helping them otherwise I am ok with being alone.
