Lightworkers are those who volunteered, before birth, to help the planet and its population heal from the effects of fear. Each lightworker is here for a sacred purpose. Very often, however, life on earth with its material focus creates a form of amnesia in lightworkers. They then forget their divine and perfect identities, and also their abilities to miraculously help the earth and all living creatures. When lightworkers forget their true identity and purpose, they feel lost and afraid.
Your are a lightworker if you: feel called to heal others; want to resolve the world’s social and environmental problems; believe that spiritual methods can heal any situation; have had mystical experiences, such as psychic premonitions or angelic encounters; have endured harsh life experiences that eroded the knowledge of your Divine perfection; want to heal your own life as a first step in healing the world; feel compelled to write, teach, or counsel about your healing experiences, or feel a sense of time urgency to fulfil your mission before you know that you are here for a higher purpose, or even if you are unsure what it is or how to fulfil it.
Everywhere on the planet right now, lightworkers are awakening to faint memories about why they came to earth. They hear an inner calling that can’t be ignored. This call is a reminder that it is now time to stop toying with material dreams, and get to work.
Many lightworkers are discovering innate spiritual gifts, such as psychic communication skills and spiritual healing abilities. These are the gifts that we volunteered to use to heal the earth and her population during the crucial decades surrounding the millennium.
Prophecies predicted our coming, and now it is time for us to fulfill our Divine purposes. The world depends upon us!
We who are lightworkers don’t necessarily need to add anything to ourselves to prepare for our mission. We already have innate abilities, even if they are presently dormant. Instead, we need to work on releasing fears which keep us from feeling confident in our lightworker abilities. When you remind yourself that your power as a lightworker comes from your higher self and God (not from “you”) you automatically feel more assured of your abilities as a spiritual healer.
With our focused intent, thought, and spirit, we can heal anything. There are no limits, except those we place upon our healing abilities.
We definitely can heal the earth with our spiritual approach. In fact, scientists have recently demonstrated that people can change water and air temperature and also cloud structures, purely through their thoughts. Researchers have known for years that prayer positively affects plants and animals. These studies reveal something that many lightworkers have already known: our collective prayers and healing thoughts can avert prophecies of world trauma.
There is only one spirit and one mind, and we are all part of this collective intelligence and love. Miraculous results in scientific laboratories are demonstrating the factual basis of the oneness of all life. Not long ago, U.S. and Japanese scientists hooked-up test subjects to blood pressure and heart monitor machines. Simultaneously, in separate and sealed rooms, other test subjects were asked to think loving or angry thoughts about the people hooked-up to the machines. At the exact instant when a subject held a loving thought, the monitored person’s blood pressure and heart rate significantly dropped. And then, at the precise moment when an angry thought was projected, the person’s vital signs skyrocketed upward.
We who are lightworkers are already aware of the power of our thoughts. What we are continuing to learn, however, is that our thoughts are even more powerful than we suspected! A large part of our lightworker function, then, is to continuously monitor our own thoughts to ensure that they are from a high and loving plane. When we occasionally slip into fearful or judgmental thoughts, we can release these thought forms to the angels who surround us, knowing that these spiritual companions want to help us fulfill our sacred purpose.
If your intuition is urging you toward a healing function, you can be sure that this is a Divine voice and not just wishful thinking. In recent years, a spiritual call has been broadcast—like a psychic “help wanted” ad—asking for lightworkers to awaken to their healing roles. Those who have heard the call sometimes contact me, asking for reassurance that this inner voice isn’t setting them up for disappointment or possible failure.
I can certainly understand this fear, since I experienced it myself. When I was a young mother of two and an uneducated housewife, I began having spontaneous visions in which I saw myself as a healer and author. These visions frightened me, because I didn’t think that I had the time, money, or intelligence to succeed. So I began overeating to silence the inner voice and visions. I didn’t feel ready or qualified to awaken to my mission.
What I was doing was the equivalent of pushing the “snooze button” on my spiritual alarm clock. Overeating was my way of delaying God’s plan for me, because food would temporarily drown out the sound and sight of my Divine life plan. I gained nearly 50 pounds before I finally surrendered to the Creator and asked for help in making my inner vision a reality. I discovered that as soon as I committed to following my life purpose, doors opened up for me in succession. In miraculous ways that I could never have planned for, everything in my visions became a reality.
We cannot fail when we accept the mission we chose for ourselves prior to incarnation.
The power and intelligence of the One mind makes no mistakes. We would not have been assigned our lightworker role, were we not perfectly qualified. Since we are made in the image and likeness of One who is all-knowing, all-loving, and able to heal anything, we can relax in the sure knowledge that we were born to heal.
Doreen Virtue is the author of several books on these seasoned sages of the 21st Century, including The Care and Feeding of Indigo Children and The Crystal Children.
You Can Heal the World
Prophecies of world doom have seemingly always existed. History tells us that the belief that “the end is near” was prevalent right before the year 1000. Apparently, every generation that is alive whenthe year hits a new century mark is convinced that the end time prophecies apply to them. The trouble is, if enough people believe this, their collective fears really do create earthly problems.
At the onset of each century, God awakens His lightworkers to heal this collective fear. Through their consciousness of truth and love, lightworkers can undo the prophecies of end times and provide needed services, such as healing, manifesting, and ministering.
So many people are anxiously watching the weather because they believe drastic weather changes are indicative of the end of the world. Within the past two decades, our collective focus has so intently looked for abnormal weather that we have actually created erratic weather. We must always keep in mind that all matter, including rain, rocks, snow, wind, landmass, and lightning, is a product of our thoughts. God’s angels will help us when we create ill weather through our collective fear thoughts. However, this doesn’t mean that God created the weather or made it bad.
We are not hapless victims isolated on a planet where weather “happens” to us. We are in total control of the dream. This means that we must remember the Law of Cause and Effect: whatever we think about enlarges. We who are lightworkers must daily meditate upon what we want to see, not upon what we fear may happen.
Intense weather such as windstorms, floods, and earthquakes may be earth’s way of releasing oversaturated negative energy.
However, lightworkers can assist earth’s release of this energy in gentler ways. Scientists are currently documenting evidence that our mental powers can influence the weather. These studies amplify what many lightworkers have known all along. We can visualize the energy dispersing, and being carried away by angels to the light of purification. We can also hold mental images of a collective release of unforgiveness. In this way, we help to release the grip of the earth’s ego, which like our ego, is self-destructive.
As with spiritual healing work involving human bodies, prayer can evoke miraculous healings of the earth body. We already have well-documented scientific evidence that prayer increases the rate of plant and microbe growth, and influences properties in air and water. Why wouldn’t prayer also benefit the rest of nature? Your prayers, combined with the prayers of other lightworkers, could restore the earth to her natural state of perfect, radiant health.
Energy Work upon the World
British scientist James Lovelock proposed a theory that saw the earth as a living organism struggling to maintain homeostasis through its shifts in landmass and weather. Lovelock named his theory “Gaia,” after the Greek goddess of the earth. The Gaia theory explains earthly disasters as natural effects of human cruelty to nature.
Lovelock’s Gaia theory makes sense. We also know from studies using Kirlian photography that the light around matter changes as the emotions of the human holding the matter changes. If someone holds an item while angry, for example, the item will photograph with a shorter or darker aura than if that same item is photographed while its holder expresses happiness.
Kirlian photography has lately come under fire as scientists argue over the source of the aura. Many scientists today believe that Kirlian photography auras are actually a picture of the item’s humidity or temperature. However, whether the image surrounding items in Kirlian photographs is actually moisture, heat, or light is not the issue. The fact is that these photographic studies show marked changes in response to emotions. They also show that matter absorbs and reflects the emotions of its holder or owner.
This information wouldn’t surprise psychics, as we often hold a client’s ring, watch, or keys during sessions. These items strengthen and increase the amount of information we can detect about the person’s emotions, thought forms, and even their lives. Many times, I’ve simply held a client’s ring and instantly been flooded with psychic information about that person.
The energy that is encoded with information has been called “life force,” “ki,” “chi,” and “prana.” In the 1940′s, scientists referred to life energy as “orgone energy.” Researcher Wilhelm Reich found orgone energy in organic matter, including water, wool, wood, and the atmosphere. Reich eventually developed a pistol-like apparatus that could influence orgone energy, and in several monitored studies, Reich effected weather changes with this tool. He believed that the blue sky was actually visible orgone energy, since he surmised that the energy was blue-colored. Satellite photos of the earth verify that a blue electrical covering does surround the planet.
We can work on healing the earth as if it’s a client’s body. Our energy and psychic healing can involve the same steps that we would take with a human client. For example, we would first want to relax and allow our mind to become clear. Then, we would tune into the earth and feel for areas of pain.
You can talk directly to this pain and receive a great deal of information. For instance, ask it, “What are you trying to tell me?” Then listen and you’ll find the pain has a voice of its own. This voice will direct you in the way that it most wants your help. It might ask you to direct some angels or white light to certain geographical locations, for example. You’ll want to suspend all doubts and judgments, and stay centered in loving trust while you follow this wise patient’s lead. The earth will help you to heal her.
One of my clients, who lived in a remote area of the country, asked me to psychically scan the acreage around his home during a telephone psychic reading session. I mentally walked around his land and was drawn to three separate areas. In each area, I saw a dark shape that looked like a giant wine glass buried in the ground. As I scanned these areas, I felt accompanying chills of intense negative energy. I didn’t like connecting with these spots, and immediately told my client of my discomfort. He explained that the areas I had described were fenced off and had government signs warning of radiation. My client believed that my psychic vision of large wine glass shapes represented toxic waste wells beneath the ground’s surface. I worked on psychically cleaning the areas during the remainder of our sessions.
I frequently conduct spirit releasement work upon cities that seem to contain high levels of social unrest. A favorite visualization involves seeing a giant etheric vacuum tube, which I point down upon the city. I ask the tube to find any darkness from fear and unforgiveness. I then visualize myself switching the vacuum to a “high” setting so it rapidly inhales all the darkness. I picture this darkness going into the light of God where it is instantly purified and dispersed. After the darkness is gone, I reverse the switch on the vacuum so that white light comes out like toothpaste from a tube. This blankets the city with love, peace, and complete security. I end the visualization with a prayer of gratitude to God and His angels for the perfect health of that city. I also occasionally use this visualization upon centers of political power. You may feel drawn to use it on prisons, the rainforest, or other areas you feel drawn to heal.
Another effective visualization involves seeing a giant cloud of love colored in your favorite hue. Envelope the earth in this cloud and watch it send beautiful raindrops of joy into the ground. Feel the earth’s joy as it eagerly drinks this loving energy. Watch the plants and animals respond with radiant health as the ecological system circulates your gift of love.
Spiritually Healing the World
Spiritual healing and energy-work healing share identical goals. They only differ in the way they approach the goal. Spiritual healing looks past the illusion of problems and affirms only the underlying perfection as truth, while energy work focuses upon the problem and then tries to heal it. Spiritual healing utilizes thoughts, words, mind, and spirit, while energy work uses light and material or etheric instruments. Your inner guide will help you choose the most appropriate means of healing for each situation.
As with spiritual healing on human clients, spiritual healing the earth primarily involves releasing unforgiveness since it is the mass race consciousness fueling social and environmental problems. Unforgiveness is a thought form that divides the world into good guys and bad guys. The ego-self feels comfortable blaming outside forces for its nightmares. In this way, the ego is assured of its own continuing existence. After all, once a person discovers that the ego and its perceptions are nothing but illusions, the ego is essentially removed from its throne. Like the Wizard of Oz, the ego continually tells us to “pay no attention to that man behind the curtain” while diverting our attention to outside displays of thunder and lightening.
We cannot heal the nightmare of global warming, rainforest destruction, and such by holding onto judgments and anger toward “bad guy” perpetrators. This focus creates a huge petri dish that breeds “bad guy” behavior through the infallible Law of Cause and Effect: whatever we think about grows.
Lightworkers can, however, spiritually heal the cause of the irresponsible behavior of those who are hurting the rainforest, and other perpetrators against nature. However, this may require some courage to trust that the solution—forgiveness—will work.
God has been speaking with those who are hurting the earth. These people know, in their hearts, that they are causing pain. This knowledge has crumbled their self-images, and they see themselves as unworthy of leading happier more productive lives. Most of them fear that financial ruin would accompany their change of heart. The people who perpetuate criminal behavior are on the verge of healing, and lightworkers’ collective mindset of love can provide the little push necessary to awaken their minds.
Lightworkers, you can heal thousands of social ills with your collective decision to forgive and to love these criminals. You needn’t forgive their actions, just the person who created the action. This may involve you being willing to forgive some “bad guy” from your own life. Many times, we project old unforgiveness onto new situations that remind us of past hurts.
See the criminals for who they truly are: holy and loving children of God. Visualize them “getting” the insight that their pursuit of security and happiness has created pain for themselves and others. Imagine them having a revelation that brings them to their knees with awe for God’s love. See them, in turn, using their knowledge for good by awakening and healing other criminals.
If you find such visualizations unnatural or difficult, then your spiritual healing efforts can involve you deliberately holding neutral thoughts about crime. In this way, you won’t add fuel to the fire through harboring angry or fearful thoughts about criminals. These sorts of thoughts are the landscape that created the frightening illusion of crime in the first place.
Ask for the angels to help you to find love in your heart for those who perpetuate crimes upon the earth. This love will heal their fear-based behavior, and help you to truly experience the wonder of knowing that we are all one in God. When I embarked upon the lightworker’s way, my intuition urged me to avoid negative conversations, television shows, and reading material. My intuition didn’t have to ask me twice! I readily followed this guidance, as I was anxious to preserve the still-fragile joy of rediscovering my spiritual self. As I talk with other lightworkers, I find that they, too, have received and are following this same inner guidance. Yet, some lightworkers’ healing activities will place them in “front line” positions where interaction with the media is unavoidable. Other lightworkers, who have positions in the government or in traditional health care settings, may find their attentions assaulted with graphic scenes and heated discussions.
Certainly, it is easier to keep one’s focus on the loving truth of the world by avoiding news accounts and discussions about “problems.”
However, this may not always be practical or desirable. One lightworker said that she enjoys watching the evening news because she then knows where to direct her prayers. Her outlook is a wonderful model for those of us who wonder how to balance our desires to keep our minds pure while providing healing services to the world. We can always ask for angels to help us to release our fears and anger about worldly situations. Angels want to help us heal the world. However, except in cases of dire emergency, we must ask for their intervention because of the Law of Free Will. The angels gladly respond to our calls for help, as they know that they are simultaneously healing the world as they heal the hearts and minds of lightworkers.
Lightworkers’ time and energy is best used in healing functions. For that reason, arguments and debates about world problems are counterproductive to the lightworker’s way. Conflict stems from the ego and is based in seeing others and ourselves as separated beings. The time and energy spent in a debate could be better used in a session of energy work, spiritual healing, or simple human gestures of kindness toward the earth.
In the same vein, our world healing involves guarding the words we use in our speech and thoughts. This includes avoiding discussions about “how awful” this and that part of the world has become. There is always a way to kindly steer such conversations toward an outlook of hope and healing. I often ask Jesus or Holy Spirit to help me choose my words, and I’m always amazed at how they instantly give me just the right phrase to say.
World Health and Peace
On a spiritual plane, not only is there nothing wrong with the world, but there is no world. The illusion of solid matter stems from the mind of man, not from the Creator. Nonetheless, the compassionate lightworker can help herself, her brothers and her sisters on earth to enjoy their dream about earth.
You’ve undoubtedly had the experience of a lucid dream where you had a split consciousness and were simultaneously dreaming while being aware that you were dreaming. Part of you was doing the dreaming, while the other part watched you dream. That part of your consciousness that was watching was able to steer the dream’s direction. You can direct the mass dream with your awareness, in the same way.
Whenever a lightworker experiences the revelation of being one with God’s love and with each other, a contribution is made to the mind of every other being. The effect is similar to how a wrinkle appears in the brain’s cortex whenever something new is learned. The one mind receives this lightworker’s sane thoughts about true reality, and the new wrinkle nudges the entire sonship and daughtership of God to awaken.
Spiritual healing of the planet involves the true self-mind, and not the body. Therefore, your treatments will be done within the true self-world. You enter this world by pushing the “on” button to the parallel life with a loving thought. This means you’ll need to avoid holding fearful or angry thoughts about the world. You may need to remind yourself of the healing benefits of practicing “nonattachment” to matter, as espoused in Eastern philosophies. Although you, of course, love nature and don’t want to see it spoiled or destroyed. You show the most love for it by holding thoughts from the high plane of truth. We can’t heal from the level of fear and despair, after all.
The world is healed the instant you decide to see a healed world. I have signs posted in my home that read, “The world is loving, happy, and whole.” This reminds me to heal the world by seeing it healed—not as a way of denying ugliness or pain, but to peel away those unwanted outer illusions. The core of our world is beautiful, clean, and peaceful, and we can experience this world with a simple decision to see it. In this respect, the only requirement of a lightworker who desires to help the world is a decision to stay centered in a perspective of love. As we lightworkers heal individually, the world is simultaneously healed. As A Course in Miracles says, “Thus is your healing everything the world requires, that it may be healed. The resurrection of the world awaits your healing and your happiness, that you may demonstrate the healing of the world.”
Opening Our Hearts
As lightworkers, our primary purpose is to heal ourselves, so that we may heal others.
When we open our heart chakras fully to Love, other people notice the glow that naturally emanates from deep withinus. Even those with no knowledge of spirituality are drawn to our love and light. They notice something “different” about our peaceful nature, and the glow of Divine love triggers a deep, forgotten memory of God. So, the greatest mission that lightworkers can now embark upon is to lose their fears of love, so that their light can help to awaken our sleeping brothers and sisters.
The heart chakra becomes clogged, shrunken, and dirty from fears associated with love. It seems that every person has suffered pain in a relationship, including romantic, family, and friend relationships. This pain causes us to fear love. Yet, because love is the essence of life, this fear causes us to lose touch with life’s true essence. We become confused and forget what true love feels like.
When we are afraid of love, we are literally afraid of being ourselves. The fear of love leads us to become guarded, sarcastic, and defensive. We are so frightened of being hurt, manipulated, abused, or controlled, that we seal our heart away from all experiences of receiving or giving love. Unfortunately, when we close our hearts to love, we also shut off the awareness of God speaking through our intuition. Ironically, this intuition is the trustworthy guide that reliably leads us to relationships that honor and support us. When we block the awareness of Divine guidance, we are unaware of the angels’ warnings about abusive relationships.
Here is a powerful healing meditation given by the angels, to help us lose our fears about love and cleanse and open our collective heart chakra. You may want to record this meditation with soft background music, so that you can easily listen to it once or twice a day:
With your eyes closed, and in a comfortable position, take two or three very deep cleansing breaths. Visualize a beautiful cloud of emerald green light surrounding you.
As you breathe in, you take this healing energy into your lungs, your cells, and into your heart.
Concentrate upon your heart a moment, as you allow the emerald green light to cleanse away any negativity, which may have caused you to feel pain.
With a deep breath, allow the light to carry away any fears you may have about love. Be willing to release the fear of feeling love. You need do nothing else except breathe, and hold the intention to heal yourself of the fear of love. Just be willing to be healed, and God and the angels will do everythingelse.
Take another deep breath, as you become willing to release the fear of being loved, including the fear that if you are loved, you could be manipulated, tricked, used, abandoned, rejected, persecuted, or in other ways, hurt.
With another deep breath, allow all these fears from any lifetime to be lifted and carried away.
Now, allow the light to cleanse you of any fears you may have about giving love. With a deep breath, be willing to release the fear that if you give love, you could be controlled, abused, deceived, betrayed, maimed, or hurt in any way. Allow these fears to be lifted completely, and feel your heart expanding to its natural loving state.
Allow yourself to release any old unforgiveness you may be harboring toward those who seem to have hurt you in a love relationship.
Become willing to release unforgiveness toward your mother . . . toward your father . . . toward other parental figures . . . toward your siblings . . . toward your childhood friends . . . toward your adolescent friends . . . toward your first love . . . toward those whom you dated and loved . . . toward anyone with whom you lived or married . . . allow all of your hurts and disappointments associated with love to be cleansed and fully carried away. You don’t want the hurt, you don’t need it, and with another deep breath, it is lifted to the light where it is transmuted and purified. Only the lessons and the pure essence of love contained within each relationship remains, since that is the only thing that was ever eternal and real within each of your relationships.
Now, with another deep breath, allow the light to cleanse you completely. Be willing to release any unforgiveness you may hold toward yourself connected to love. Be willing to forgive yourself for betraying yourself, for ignoring your intuition, or for not looking out for your highest interests.
Give yourself a hug, either in your mind or with your arms. Reassure your inner self that you will never again engage in self-betrayal.
You now commit to following your intuition and discernment, so that you could never be or stay in any relationship that would hurt you. Fully release the unforgiveness for any mistakes that you think you may have made in any relationship, including your relationship with yourself. And with another very deep cleansing breath, feel yourself healed, whole, and ready to enjoy the love that is the truth about who you really are.
