Be a Lightworker….All the Time

Article by Deborah Lloyd, Reiki Master

Those of us who offer healing energy work may consider ourselves to be lightworkers during those sessions; it is true we bring light and healing to our clients, through the healing energies of Reiki. However, that reality is only part of the picture. To be a lightworker means growing in awareness of the fact that we bring energy (either positive or negative) into the earth all the time, through our thoughts, words, and actions.

Every thought we have creates energy, and this energy influences our own chakra system, as well as the chakra systems of other people. We influence all people, but especially those with whom we have direct contact, or are in close proximity, through our energetic fields.

When we become aware we have brought negative vibrations to others, we have the ability to heal this through Reiki and our intentions. As we live our daily lives more in tune with a higher vibration, it becomes easier to generate positive thoughts. And, when we fall into negativity, we should become aware of it sooner and change the energy.

It is important to remember each of us is on a spiritual path. Everyone else living on earth is on a spiritual path too. Many people do not yet understand the impact their thoughts, words and actions have on their own energy systems, much less on other people. It is not our place to judge where they are at on their journey; rather, we can take the opportunity to help them on their path by sending light and love. This is generating good karma, and we will experience similar blessings from others.

Reiki assists us in discovering our authentic power. This power has always been available to us, but we often fail to realize our full potential. Authentic power is the recognition we are powerful beings, able to manifest the highest good. We are powerful in that we can be instruments in the creation of a harmonious society.

Do you believe this statement? “Through my thoughts, words and actions, I have a vital role in bringing peace to earth.” If you dismissed, or giggled, at this statement, you have more work to do in finding your authentic self! If you truly believe this statement is true, there is still much work to do, as we are human beings and have many challenges in always living a positive, loving life – it is not easy. Greed, the wrong use of power, jealousies and harmful intentions continue to emit negative energies into our environment. Healing energies are needed more than ever.

In time, all committed lightworkers believe, and know, everything is connected. The more each of us can do to bring healing into the world, the better it will become. Become a lightworker, through all the moments of your life!
