HJ: Lightworker Syndrome is a very common issue that affects many otherwise highly conscious and aware individuals.  It has its roots in the distortion and fundamental misunderstanding of what it means to be spiritually aware and conscious and can be further compounded by deeply internalized limiting beliefs.  Typical symptoms are a lack of material and physical abundance as well as a lack of achievement and fear of stepping into ones true destiny.  These go hand in hand, as a lack of one predisposes a lack of the other.  These symptoms can be traced back to a series of limiting beliefs and fears that are keeping one from reaching their highest potential at any given moment.

The first belief is that material and physical abundance are contradictory to spirituality and higher consciousness.  This is entirely false.  We are constantly bombarded with examples of wealthy individuals who are most definitely not spiritually centered/grounded and so we learn to associate physical and material abundance with lower consciousness.  Correlation is not causation.  I can think of a huge list of highly conscious and spiritually aware individuals with a great degree of wealth.  In fact, it has been my experience that almost all highly evolved, spiritually aware individuals have mastered this aspect of their lives/themselves.  We are powerful creator beings and when we step into this power and learn to use it correctly, we can create whatever we need.  Wealth and abundance can greatly facilitate learning, growth and effectiveness when used properly.  Money is neither good or bad.  It is neutral.  What YOU do with it, on the other hand, determines whether it is being used in a spiritually aware way (or not…).  Beware the old illuminati trick which is perpetuated by many unaware and sometimes well meaning individuals.  It is not the money that is evil!  It is the intention behind how it is used!  Intention is everything!

The second cause of and contributor to Lightworker Syndrome is fear of stepping into ones power and embracing destiny (this may stem from further limiting beliefs, however, addressing these its beyond the scope of this introduction).  To do so requires great courage, focus, and the acceptance of great responsibility.  Most secretly desire this, but are afraid to access it.  We all have beautiful, profound gifts to give to the world and when we do so, we are infinitely supported by the universe on the physical and material planes.  Abundance is the natural result of fully embracing and stepping into ones power, bestowing their gifts upon the world in the process.  It is only when we fight, ignore, or are ambivalent to this fact that we experience lack in all its myriad forms.  The universe is always urging you to express your divine nature and should you choose to accept your destiny, you WILL be supported.

Lightworker Syndrome

By Steve Pavlina | Steve Pavlina
One obstacle that traps a lot of highly conscious people is what Erin and I call Lightworker Syndrome.  This is what happens when someone wakes up to a higher level of consciousness, but they can’t figure out how to live on purpose and feed themselves at the same time.  Such people have a lot of trouble staying connected to higher levels of consciousness while also remaining solidly grounded in the physical world.  Many of them get so frustrated with the experience they become depressed and have feelings of wanting to give up and just “go home” (i.e. return to the nonphysical world).

Spiritual connectedness vs. physical groundedness

These troubled lightworkers often feel they must compromise:  either stay connected up top and be totally ungrounded, or lose that higher connection and become more grounded.  But this is a really tough compromise, so many of them oscillate back and forth, never quite sure which is the right way to go.

Consequently, these lightworkers either do empty work they don’t enjoy but which pays OK, or they do purpose-centered work that hardly pays anything.  They end up sacrificing either their purpose or their income, since it’s very, very challenging to satisfy both at the same time.  But this either-or decision takes a toll in the long run.  It’s hard to stay on purpose if you’re worried about paying the rent, and it’s hard to generate good income if your work doesn’t inspire you.

The real trap is the either-or belief itself.  It’s a mistake to think you can’t attract abundant resources doing what you love.  It’s also a mistake to think that staying broke is the best way to help other people.  Many lightworkers are so sensitive to the idea of sacrificing their purpose for money that they figure it’s better to have no money at all… or barely enough to get by.

As is typical of other lightworkers, I’m very sensitive to the idea of making money “the wrong way.”  I have a strong disinclination — I would actually call it total disgust — of violating my values to generate income.  However, when you’re faced with financial scarcity and have to pay the rent or lose your home, it’s really tough to maintain integrity because under stress you’ll likely lower your vibration and bring your awareness down.  You effectively become a different person.  When your survival and stability are threatened, those become your priority.  Fortunately I haven’t been in this situation for a long time, but I certainly know what it’s like.  It’s pretty darn hard to think about serving others when you’re behind on your rent, deep in debt, and you discover a 3-day pay-or-quit notice taped to the door of your apartment.

I’m not going to tell you the solution is to choose between your higher connection and your groundedness.  As you can probably guess, the solution is that you need both.  But you won’t be able to get there until you understand why you don’t already have both right now.

Fearing your own power

The reason you can’t maintain your stable connection to Source AND remain grounded at the same time is that you’re afraid of what it will mean if you succeed.

There’s a good chance you won’t agree with that statement — I wouldn’t have agreed with it a few years ago — but please keep an open mind while I explain why this is so.

First of all, it is possible to stay connected to Source and be grounded at the same time.  This isn’t just some new agey concept — it’s downright practical.

On the one hand, I have my purpose, my spiritual beliefs, and my feeling of connection to everyone.  When I resonate with those thoughts, I’m motivated to serve and help people all day long.  On the other hand, I also live in the physical world.  I need to provide the basic needs for myself and my family, which in practical terms means I need an income.  So I can’t be too airy-fairy if it means I don’t have a place to live.  I have to stay properly grounded.

Connectedness + groundedness = synergy


At their core these two sides aren’t really in conflict.  They may be different energies, but they’re not inherently opposed to each other.  In fact, they serve to support each other.  The spiritual side provides abiding motivation.  When I feel connected up top, I’m driven.  I’m passionate.  I’m energized.  And I’m also peaceful.  That’s powerful motivation to do some kind of work — work that could very well help me become more grounded simply by generating some income.  And on the other side, when I’m more grounded, more physically and financially stable, I have more freedom.  I have a greater capacity.  I don’t have to worry about paying the bills.  And that lends itself to the spiritual side because I have the capacity to devote more time to spiritual pursuits.  So these two energies are naturally complementary.  When they work together, they work synergistically.

Truthfully I can say to you that this is what I experience in my life as my normal state of being.  I feel I have a great balance of conscious connectedness and physical world grounding.  I attend to both sides.

This did not happen by accident though.  It happened by conscious choice.  I really had to stop and do a total life redesign to make it work.  That happened in 2004 before I made the decision to start this web site.

What will happen if you succeed?

Now this may sound a bit strange, but for me the decision wasn’t as balanced as I probably just made it sound.  I know a lot of would-be lightworkers are concerned they can’t make a living pursuing their purpose.  I didn’t have that problem though.  I felt confident I could make a living at it somehow.  What really held me back was whether I felt comfortable doing it at all.  My real fear was:  What’s going to happen if this actually works?  What if I succeed?

Only after I achieved a stable balance between connectedness and groundedness did I begin to recognize this same pattern in other lightworkers.  At first I figured it was unique to me, but I was wrong about that.  I see the same pattern everywhere now.  Whenever I see a broke lightworker, I invariably see an underlying fear of success.  If I confront the person about it, they will usually resist the notion, which I completely understand, but the pattern is so strong that once you see it, it’s undeniable.

The real barrier to achieving the connectedness-groundedness balance is the limiting beliefs you may have about what will happen after you achieve this balance.  What will realistically happen when you’re honoring your life’s purpose and making more than enough money to sustainably do it for the rest of your life?

Well, I can tell you what will happen because I’ve already turned that page.  Here’s what’s likely to happen.  You’re going to succeed in a big way.  When you’re doing what you love and generating plenty of income from it, it creates a positive spiral.  Those two sides support each other.  Your purpose drives your actions, your actions drive your results, and your results produce income.  Your income gives you more freedom and more fuel for your purpose.  And the whole thing just keeps going because once achieved, it’s a stable pattern.

With great power comes great responsibility

This might sound like a good thing.  And truthfully it is a good thing.  But I’m sure you’ve heard the expression, “With great power comes great responsibility.”  And that is exactly what lightworker syndrome sufferers fear most.  They fear that if they actually succeed, they’ll have a lot of responsibility on their shoulders.

That fear is what kills their income.  The best way to increase your income is to help more people.  In practice it’s not that difficult to do — IF your beliefs will let you.  The desire to reach out and help more people is what drove me to build so much web traffic.  I’ve met many lightworkers who are able to provide genuine value to others, but they’re doing so on a very limited basis.  When I toss out a few simple suggestions on how they could fairly easily double their income (or more) by doubling the number of people they help (without working harder or longer), the usual response is resistance and excuse-making.  I can see the real answer in their eyes though — they fear what will happen if they actually succeed.  So they keep themselves in a position where they make just enough to maintain the status quo, but not enough to get ahead.  And if they do somehow make lots of money, they’ll keep themselves so busy they won’t have the time to seriously think about their true purpose for being here.

Overcoming fear of responsibility

I ran this exact pattern for many years.  The only way I escaped it was to confront those fears head-on.  I admitted to myself that I had the internal resources to be doing much better, but I was holding myself back.  I knew I wasn’t doing my best, but why not?  I wasn’t doing my best because I wasn’t ready to accept the consequences of doing my best.

If I really did my best, I’d have a bigger impact.  I’d draw a lot of people to me.  I’d end up with a lot of responsibility.  Scary.

Well, guess what.  Those fears were accurate.  I do have a lot of responsibility.  Once I achieved the connectedness-groundedness balance and got that positive spiral going, my results took off.  They’re still taking off.  This web site is now getting about 200,000 page views a day.  I’m generating way more income than I need to cover my basic needs… more than $1000 per day, whether I work or not.  I fully expect this increase will continue spiraling for a long time to come.  But I didn’t reach this point by focusing on getting more and more for myself.  That kind of motivation would have been too weak.  My real motivation comes from a deep desire to make a positive difference in the world.  My passion comes from my purpose, not my income.

However, I couldn’t tap into that motivation until I first overcame my fear of success.  I had to first accept that if I did my very best and succeeded, I was going to end up with far more responsibility.  I had to become a “vibrational match” for that scenario; otherwise I’d never be able to attract it and maintain it.

I had to answer those tough questions:  Who am I to reach the point of influencing thousands of people a day, even while I’m sleeping?  Who am I to tell people how to improve their lives?  Who am I to try to make a difference?

Subconsciously I couldn’t handle those questions, so for years I just maintained my status quo position as a seemingly contented computer game developer.  Occasionally I would journal about them though, but it wasn’t enough to get me past the underlying fear of success.

Position vs. power

What eventually allowed me to break that pattern was when I looked at the situation from a different angle.  I was thinking about the idea, “With great power comes great responsibility,” and I noticed I’d been assuming that my power would increase if I really did my best.  In other words I equated power with position.  As my position increased, so would my power… and thereby so would my responsibility.

At that point I had a revelation that threw me for a loop.  What if power didn’t come from position?  If I have the potential to achieve a greater position, but I’m not pursuing it, doesn’t that mean I actually do have the power?  If I don’t exercise my power, it doesn’t mean I’m powerless.  It just means I’m inactive.

I thought to myself, “Crap!  I’ve been thinking all this time that I’m staving off power (and thus responsibility) by declining to act.  But all I’m really doing is giving up control.  If I have the potential, then I have the power, which means I have the responsibility too, whether I act on it or not.”  Failure to act does NOT relieve one of responsibility.

It was then that I had an epiphany.  I realized I could never escape responsibility by failing to act.  The only thing I could escape was control.  This is why I say you can give up control but never responsibility.  Responsibility is a given.

That realization gave me a good kick in my complacency.  Even though I felt like I was in a relatively powerless position on the outside, in that moment I finally accepted my inner power.  That included accepting responsibility for that power.  And of course by the law of attraction, once I began resonating with that inner power, it was only a matter of time before the outer world reflected it.  If you’ve been following this web site for a year or more, then you’ve seen that manifestation unfolding before your eyes, and you’ll see that process continue over the next year as well.

Responsibility is a privilege

That thinking process got me out of my ego and past my fear of success.  When I realized I couldn’t escape responsibility no matter what my external position looked like, it made sense to just accept it.  My fear wasn’t at some distant point in the future — it was already here and now.

You see… even though my external position may seem more burdened by responsibility than yours, in truth you have just as much responsibility as I do.  And that’s because you have great inner power just as I do.  Maybe you’ve accepted it, and maybe you haven’t, but the power is there, and the responsibility it bestows is inescapable.



Even though we’ve probably never met, I feel a deep sense of responsibility towards you right now.  I feel honor-bound to do the best I can to help you grow —because I can.  It may seem like my position gives me the power to do that, but that isn’t accurate.  Power doesn’t come from position.  Position comes from power.  Because I have the power to help you grow, I must help you grow.  You may not accept my help, but that doesn’t make me feel any less responsible to you.  I feel responsible to everyone.

That feeling of responsibility, however, isn’t the burden I once feared it would be.  When I accepted my inner power, responsibility became a privilege.  I’m truly grateful to have the opportunity to help so many people each day, even while I’m sleeping.

Overcoming Lightworker Syndrome

So what does all of this have to do with overcoming Lightworker Syndrome?  Lightworker Syndrome is a lack of acceptance of one’s power.  That lack of acceptance is what manifests the apparent conflict between connectedness to Source and groundedness in physical reality.  As within, so without.  Your inner conflict manifests in your external reality.  In truth you are simply getting what you’re intending.  You fear your real power, so you silently intend it to remain dim.  This manifests a never-ending series of distractions to keep you preoccupied enough that you don’t have to think about what you’re really doing — keeping yourself small because you’re afraid of too much responsibility.

If you recognize you’re suffering from Lightworker Syndrome right now, I have a lot of compassion for you.  Having gone through it myself, I know how hard it is.  But you must recognize you’ll never solve this problem at the same level of thinking that created it.  Realize you’re the one who’s manifesting the annoying health problems, the “unexpected” financial crisis that suddenly wipes out your savings just when you start to get ahead, the unfulfilling relationship, etc.  You’re manifesting all of it because you’re resonating with fear — it’s one giant distraction.  You can hack at the branches all you want, but you’ll only be spinning your wheels.  Whenever you’re ready, you have the power to turn off those petty problems and stop manifesting them, but once you do that, you’re going to have to deal with the real issue of why you’re here.  Deep down you know that’s the truth, don’t you?

The major turning point for me occurred when I finally surrendered and said, “Enough already!  I’m done with living small.  I’m tired of dealing with one pointless crisis after another.  I know this isn’t what I came here to do.  I don’t know if I can handle what might happen if I tap into my real potential, but I can’t accept going my whole life without finding out.  So I’m going for it.  If I go broke, I go broke.  But if I go this route in good faith, the universe had damned well better back me up.”

I have to credit the results of the past two years to that decision.  That’s what cured me of Lightworker Syndrome.  Once I experienced the inner shift, I entered that positive spiral where my connectedness and groundedness supported each other beautifully.  Attracting more money and a larger audience just means I have a greater capacity to give.  And I’m always finding new ways for my connectedness and groundedness to move into better harmony with each other.

Embracing your inner light

If you consider yourself a lightworker, understand that your real work is to accept and embrace your inner light.  You are meant to shine, not to be snuffed out.  If you feel that life in this physical universe is dragging you down, it’s because you aren’t yet in vibrational harmony with your light.  The more you fear it, the more you’ll attract distracting problems that have little or nothing to do with your purpose.  But whenever you’re ready, you can say to the universe, “OK.  I’m ready.  I’m going to pursue my purpose with all my heart and soul, and you’d better back me up.”  Once you make a committed decision, you’ll attract all the help and resources you need.  You’ll be shocked at just how easy it is.

You came here to do some serious good for this planet, so get busy and go do it.  You’re not fooling anyone by standing still.  You’re responsible to do what you came here to do whether you do it or not.  And if you’re going to be responsible, you might as well accept and embrace the power to do something about it.  Staying small serves no one, least of all you.  This planet needs you now, not tomorrow… not someday.  Don’t let us down, and especially don’t let yourself down.

I shall leave you with a quote from Marianne Williamson:

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

  1. Beliefs shape the reality. If you believe you should be poor because money is evil then you will be.

    But it’s not like all Lighworkers want to be poor. It’s more like they find no pleasure in acquiring stuff and they just don’t want to have the basics, they are mostly focused on serving others and being examples to others.

    I certainly don’t want to be rich, but i want a chance in life. And with the current economic crisis still going on (5 years and still nothing looks like improving!) and the inflated market, i can’t see how are certain things like bulding a house or buying a car, possible. 2012 experience taught us that there are no miracles in this life, and if you let the wishful thinking take over your logical mind then you are screwed. Don’t be wishful, be realistic. The Laws of the Universe are also realistic.

    The second part is about those who feel unworthy. This certainly doesn’t apply to me, and i still get depressed and want to go home. Because i know why i came here, and because i’m saddened and have lost hope in humanity.

    Because i know that humans won’t wake up this time, we are waiting for them to get off this planet so us lightworkers (mostly wanderers from higher densities) will create the new earth.

    I didn’t get this:
    “When I toss out a few simple suggestions on how they could fairly easily double their income (or more) by doubling the number of people they help (without working harder or longer), the usual response is resistance and excuse-making.”

    Doubling what?

  2. This is great. Reading all of your thoughts, and so many matching up with mine, its motivating… hearing what your next step was/is.
    The last year i have been using self hypnosis cd’s/energy medicine cd’s and have seen the trend of creating my life, its amazing. also ive searched for the kind of work i am drawn to and experimented, with what i knew to be unbelievable outcomes. a spiritual happening i am still amazed by, so much fear is still within me about the possibilities. The more i work on myself and go with a more natural approach to life the more fulfilling.
    I without a doubt need to do more embracing and less excuse making. Its is a difficult task.

  3. All bachelors level jobs in my field need 3-5 years experience. The only way i have survived this is because i am helping someone :)

  4. This is beautiful. I can relate to just about everything you said. I am going through the depression and at times feel like giving up on life because I don’t think I am capable of being great.

    Then there are times I feel like I can roll out of bed and accomplish anything and everything. I have people tell me all the time I am really smart and capable of many great things but I am scared of being in the position of my dream job and not being capable of meeting the standards they look for or even going above that.

    My job field requires 3-5 experience or a Bachelors/Masters. I figured it would be impossible to ever get a high paying job to support my girlfriend and daughter with obstacles like those.

    I always gathered what little confidence I had left and went to career fairs and interviews and after not hearing anything for a few months became discouraged and stopped looking.

    What seems like out of nowhere I got a call for a job with Comcast, then a week later a local hospital making more money, and now I have a permanent full time position at Hewlett Packard.

    Getting this job at HP is a GREAT foot in the door and I feel extremely blessed to get this opportunity. Unfortunately I don’t start until the 25th so for the past couple weeks I have sat here at my computer desk worried that I am going to fall behind or not be able to do the job.. Just a bunch of fears I know shouldn’t be there because I am VERY capable of doing this job and even doing better or reaching greater goals..

    Your article has inspired me though, and I have noticed when I am nice to those around and me think positively everything always works out for me in a great way.

  5. I don’t know if I’m a light worker but I’ve had similar issues. I guess I may as well admit I’m not 100% sure what the defintion of a light worker is, but I’d like to think I’m a being of light.

    I guess it is a bit sad, I could be making billions or even dare I say trillions (as devine being infinate power I must certainly have that potentional) all while helping people bring fun, color, increased stimulation for their imgination, and helping people reclaim their freedom, and remind people about thinking for themselves. Taking every creative activity I’ve ever enjoyed even dabbling in, and improving peoples lives will turning into the owner of mulitpul online business’s, not to mention being the author of a whole series of books, and afew pattents, (true all thes projects are at different stages but they are all happening, this lifetime) and becoming so wealthy that my spending on myself, my pets, and the love of my life alone could have a massive positive economic impact, not to mention all the charritable causes I could give to.

    I could do all that good for myself and others, I have so much power and clearly no idea how to really use it. I’m reading this and your telling me I’m manifesting the psychic attack my family members are preforming 24/7. I don’t know, maybe I am affraid (muscle testing has indicated if I have any fear it’s not mine it’s anscesteral in the form of cellular truama, issues with receiving in general, and my subconsious doesn’t have the blueprint for living without it) doing my purpose is my only shot at making a living that will pay for both food and rent, I don’t have another option (I never did). Whatever the case I haven’t given up yet, I have no idea what more I can do, but sucess with what I’m working on now is my only option.

  6. WOW I NEEDED this today, thank you for this article! This resonates so much for me and explains and clarifies so much of what i’ve been feeling and struggling with the last few years! THANK YOU!

  7. WOW I NEEDED this today, thank you for this article! This resonates so much for me and explains and clarifies so much of what i’ve been feeling and struggling with the last few years! THANK YOU!

  8. Thank you very much for this article. I’ve always known this: for years and years but could never break the cycle, because without that eureka moment you describe one is incapable of convincing oneself. However, despite all the enlightenment I’ve gone through during the past year that completely changed my life, I keep getting stuck at times – less now due to myself but more due to some of the people I try to help (I suck in people’s pain and negative energies, and keep forgetting to cleanse myself). So your article has connected one final piece for me: the fear of responsibility! I always understood various fears I used to have, understood that I didn’t really want a lot of money because there was seemingly no point, and so on and so forth – everything what you are talking about; but linking this to responsibility has been a ‘wow!’ moment. The fact is I never shy away from responsibility: at work I used to take on enormous amounts of responsibility beyond my position for years because I always wanted to succeed. The problem was, as I see it now clearly, that I shied away from the ultimate responsibility for myself and my life. I was all too happy to be responsible for others, but not for myself – this way the inherent sense of responsibility that we all have and that you are talking about was sort of pacified in me, it was basically deceived by myself! THANK YOU! x

  9. All is One: you really must stop your negative thoughts about humanity, other people, and the world. If you understand as much you must know that you create your own reality with your own thoughts. I wish more love, joy and happiness to your heart and soul. Love yourself unconditionally and extend the same grace to others. Everybody loves you.

  10. This is great. I hate responsibility but I love helping people. This article made me realize that they’re one and the same. Instead of focusing on doing what other people want me to do (a.k.a. “being responsible” to others’ agendas), I just need to focus on helping more people. Bingo. Big shifts inside.

  11. I don’t think this article covers all Light-workers. I had a very successful life up until 1998-1999 time period. Married to my soul mate, beautiful home in greater Boston area, and my own successful business, however i was asleep. Within one year it all ‘imploded’ as i call it. Divorce; house and business gone. For years i searched for answers. In November of 2012 i finally got it. Ascension. And since that didn’t happen as purported by the ‘people in the know’ it became quite apparent to me that i AM a light-worker. I understand what God’s original plan was for planet earth and her inhabitants and I’m working overtime helping to get that plan back into action. I don’t have a website and you don’t see me blogging or writing books because that’s not what I’m supposed to be doing.

    Over those years while searching out answers, I worked with headhunters and searched the countryside for jobs, even went on interviews. NOTHING worked. NOTHING has worked in any area of my life, social, business, etc. etc. for over 13 years.

    Nothing, and here i sit. Your article does an extreme disservice to all Light-workers unable to obtain an income because your think ‘they haven’t figured it out yet or they are living in fear’! Well, there’s a lot more going on than even you know. I know for a fact i have no fear. The only thing i can come up with is that what I’m doing right now is more important than being distracted by going to work and generating an income. Yes, I am going thru my savings and i would definitely go to work should the situation arise. But, it doesn’t seem to be working out that way, but it’s not because I’m in fear or that I don’t know who I am.

    There are a lot of us in the trenches doing a lot of heavy lifting while others are living lofty lives because they have a following that hangs on their every word.

    I’m asking you to be careful about how you address the many many light-workers and others as they work diligently behind the scenes, unknown and un-thanked.

    • Hi Duke,

      We are always supported by the universe when we are living in the flow. Abundance comes naturally when we are doing our souls work. If you are not experiencing abundance, then you must look inward to see how you are cutting yourself off from it with your personal beliefs and perceptions or perhaps how you may not be living in alignment. You must remember that you create your external reality through your beliefs, perceptions and thoughts and therefore if you are experiencing lack in some way, you have called this in.

      Remember to look within for your answers and realize that the external world is only a reflection of your internal state.

      Truth

  12. I really appreciate that you shared your personal story – beautiful. These insights are so vital for many of us who are trying to balance aspects of human existence that appear to be so out of sync right now – money (an imaginary debt-linked concept) as a base need for surival and lightwork that transcends the great maya illusion which money is so intertwined with. As a teenager, I developed a disgust for money because I attributed the majority of the suffering and disease on this planet – from soul numbing wage labor to dying ecosystems to prisons and violence – directly to the monetary system. I found my path and gifts as a healer a few years ago and am now in the process of trying to accept money as a vehicle for expanding my services. I never looked at the fact I might be afraid of responsibility (yes I am). Your advice, relatively simple but ringing true, really resonates with me. Thank you so much for this article!

  13. up and down like a yo yo could use lots more guidance have read many things but none the wiser from it all … so yes i think i have

  14. Dear Steve,

    It’s absolutely a pleasure to contact everyone on this site. I have recently realized I am a lightworker, and in the last year I have been channeling information in regards to creating SOULOLOGY. I am extremely interested networking with other lightworkers around the globe. I have just recently realized that I am of the blue ray, and I would love to hear more about other lightworkers, and about what everyone is working on spiritually. I am still working on my website, should finish it in a month or so, everyoen is welcome to take a look at my preliminary website http://www.rafaelgarciaolvera.wordpress.com in order to understand my ideas on creating a world of peace on the Global Movement of spirituality through Soulology. I would like to start networking with all the lightworkers all over the world, in order to start working together. I feel like my soul mission is about to begin, but we need to unite with everyone and start connecting and create global projects. I never thought I was going to have a spiritual awakening in the last 3 years, and that in the last year I would start writing ideas about creating Soulology. I am still very new at everything, and would love to start networking with others that are already currently working on their soul mission. I sometimes feel alone on all of my ideas, and just would like to see some results in starting to connect with soul family and start creating global peace projects. I guess I am searching for others that believe in creating SOULOLOGY, and together start creating a better world.

    Would love to hear from you guys. Wish everyone the best and all the Light in the world!

    Light,

  15. Soooooo hits the nail on the head for me. I can see looking back; so many times; how I have kept myself small when I could have shone brightly; all because I didn’t want to feel animosity from anyone and I have seen for some years now that I really didn’t want the responsibility ‘SHINING’ would mean.

    Likewise; I am done with living small and am ready to step into my full POWER/POTENTIAL, however scary and whatever this will mean, and they damn well better back me up.

    Thankyou so much for giving me the kick up the backside I need and for supplying the perfect information, in the perfect way and at the perfect time for it to register with me.

    Here goes!!!!!

  16. Thank you for this article. The clearest I have read in addressing problems of lack and potential. I now know I have Lightworker Syndrome and know what I have to do.
    2013 has been a year of pain for me (financial, opportunities that fade away like mist, difficult relationships, personal attacks from people I thought I knew well, as experienced by many lightworkers) and I have retreated from the physical world. 2013 has also been a year of fasttrack spiritual progress and I am struggling to reconcile my spiritual and physical worlds. The first expanding more than I ever thought possible and the physical shrinking me into a very small corner.
    Your words have resonated with me more than any for a long time. The problem and the answer are clear. Thank you very much.
