what light workers really are
The term light worker has been misleading to many so I wanted to clear it up for some of you who may have wondered as well. I feel that the law of attraction and the huge following that was built around it has contributed somewhat to the misconceptions taken on by many.
Most common misconception is the belief that you will create what you focus on and so that it means we cannot focus on our traumas and shadows in our lives because that will create more of it and manifest a life lined with unfortunate circumstances or that we will be miserable for the rest of our lives. This belief has created huge pitfalls for humanity. It created a fear of our own thoughts and emotions which truthfully aren't always so positive now are they, but we do try to focus on the positive side of life.
A light worker understands the importance of working through the shadow aspects of life, a light worker knows that one cannot dismiss or outrun a shadow as it will always be a part of us.
We cannot outrun or dismiss what is a part of our being and a part of life, much like we cannot trick physical death forever, it will catch up some day.
Much of our pain and suffering becomes bearable and even disappears the more we embrace it and acknowledge its existence, validating our thoughts and emotions, this allows us to feel acknowledged in our experiences. Which is the ticket out of the perpetual states of suffering we were in.
Look at light and shadow as two poles, one is negative and the other one is positive. If we value one more then the other we make it grow, but the other won't disappear and simply waits for its turn to shine. This is duality, but we tend to judge one as more valuable or more desirable then the other, the choice between good and bad. That judgment creates an imbalance. Imagine being inside a large elastic band with the two poles, you are holding the one pole you value more and go for a run, far away from the other pole. But you are still within the elastic band, which we call unity, when you run too far, what happens to the elastic band? its stretching until it can't go anymore and SNAP, it catches up with you, throwing you back to the original point where you started, where the other pole is standing.
How can we resolve this paradox? We simply don't run. Yes, we literally stop running and become curious and ask ourselves; why am I not liking the other pole, or, why do I have depression, or why do I not like a certain person?
This is also about cause and effect, we need to ask ourselves, what is the original cause of the effects we are experiencing in life. In other words, we need to learn to shine our own light of awareness onto our own shadows that had been following us throughout our whole life's.
YOU are the light, light is your own wisdom.
The shadow is the depth we grow our light out of.
What I have come to understand is that the minute we pause, and turn our heads to look at what has been behind us as we were running towards the light, we recognize that it does not matter where we run to or how much we focus on the sun clearly setting in front of us, we cannot run like that, the sun is clearly setting behind the horizon and it will be completely dark, are you going to be comfortable in complete darkness?
When we have accumulated a lot of dirt that created shame, guilt or hate, we need to pay attention to how that is affecting us, how it has influenced how we feel and think about ourselves, others and the world. Our beliefs and emotions create our reality and as such, it is vitally important we pay attention to the shadows that are influencing us from the level of the subconscious. Yes its possible to forget things, its quiet common actually for humans, we commonly fall into forgetfulness and amnesia. I surprise myself often on the amount of stuff I have forgotten, repressed and suppressed so to simply keep living a pretentiously happy life. But if we do not properly deal with the shadow, the stuff in our subconscious, it will manipulate us from below the surfaces of our conscious awareness. This means that many of you suffer from depression and anxieties and often don't even know why you are suffering.
Becoming aware of the issues in our lives and tracing them back to their origin can help us clearly see what we need to change to live the life we truly love and deserve to have. Life comes with natural ups and downs, its a given but how we respond to life and approach issues is where our power lays.
A light worker looks courageously at the shadows and asks the right questions, a lightworker is comfortable in the dark and blissful in the light.
I hope I could shed some light on this term.
