Being the Light: Let your Light Shine for Others

“Sometimes our light goes out but is blown again into flame by another human being. Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this inner light.”  ~Albert Schweitzer



A few months ago, I was talking to one of my coaches about losing my soul mate this past year and the transformation that was taking place in my life. I knew that this man and I were soul mates. All of my previous breakups (3 total) had ended amicably so why had this one ended so badly? What were the lessons?

Rozalyn reminded me that every experience we encounter evolves our soul. Then she said something that really changed my thoughts in midstream! “Lauren, you need to stop thinking this is about you. This is all about his growth. You were the lighthouse for him. You are a lighthouse illuminating for others the dangerous waters and dark storms approaching. Some people are not ready to have those places lit up nor are they able to deal with them right now. YOU ARE A LIGHTWORKER and you have fulfilled your purpose. DO NOT TAKE IT PERSONALLY!” I suddenly understood this was not my story but HIS Story. Time to let go and move on.

Most importantly, I knew deep in my soul that my true purpose was to be a lighthouse illuminating the way to guide people on their journey. It is never to control, own or judge the path that others will take. Lighthouses shine brightly, allowing people to see the rocky shores or dark storms threatening to engulf them.  It is not easy to navigate the darkness and come out on the other side. It takes lots of courage, strength and prayers.

It is about deep soul searching and realigning body, mind and spirit. This is a very inward journey. Um, as I continue to work on my shadows and my fears, I am learning to listen to my heart, my soul. I am learning to trust the mystery and God. I am learning to let go of old patterns. I am learning to trust again in relationships. There are misunderstandings and situations in my relationships that are still happening to illuminate those areas in my life that I need to heal. As I navigate these dark stormy waters while maintaining my faith and trust, I am able to light the way for others who are experiencing a similar journey. I know the fears, doubts, pain and resistance they are experiencing as I share with them that the journey is well worth it and um, yes, there is hope!!

I have listed below some of the traits of light workers or lighthouses. Depending on where you are in your journey, you may exhibit many of these characteristics or just some of these traits.

You may be a Light worker or lighthouse if ……

  1. You feel called to heal others using spiritual techniques such as reiki, yoga, shamanic journeys, feng shui or other spiritual techniques. Believe spiritual methods can heal any situation.
  2. You feel deeply spiritual even if it is not traditional religion although it can be traditional. Feel they are here for a divine purpose.
  3. 3. You crave love and acceptance but sometimes have a difficult time finding it. You feel discouraged and distrusting from many years of relationships that don’t work out.
  4. You feel like you don’t “fit in” with the majority of people because you are different. Often feel misunderstood by people. You often feel lonely, but would rather spend time alone than hang out with people who don’t “get them”. You may have even felt as if you don’t belong in this world. You may have become depressed and even thought about suicide.
  5. You attract “wounded” people who need rescuing, healing or saving. You are very compassionate, kind-hearted and go out of your way to help others. You are generous and a giver by nature.
  6. You have or are recovering from addictions such as sex, food, alcohol or drugs. Even if you are not in a “true” addict, you still use these temporary bandaid fixes to numb or cope with pain and depression.
  7. You want to heal your own life as a first step in healing the world. You read books and/or attend lectures on New Age topics or personal-growth topics.
  8. You are empathetic and feel other people’s emotions especially pain. You love deeply and hurt deeply. You are very sensitive and cry easily. You are or can be sensitive to loud sounds, crowds, or strong smells.
  9. You have a career helping others such teaching, ministers, counseling, social work, medicine, veterinarians, or some other career contributing to humanity and the planet.
  10. You feel compelled to write, teach, or counsel about your healing experiences.
  11. You feel a sense of time urgency to fulfill your purpose/calling as you know that you are here for a higher purpose or even if you are unsure what it is or how to fulfill it.
  12. Your careers or hobbies are in creative fields such as art, music, writing, acting, or designing jewelry. You may be naturally gifted in one or more areas involving creativity and imagination.
  13. Have had mystical experiences, such as psychic premonitions or angelic encounters especially in childhood. Your dreams are vivid and interesting.
  14. You may have had a difficult, painful or lonely childhood. Have endured harsh life experiences that eroded the knowledge of your Divine perfection.
  15. You are not materialistic and do not care about status symbols as long as there is enough money to live decently. You love music, art, animals and NATURE. You want to resolve the world’s social and environmental problems.
  16. You find it difficult to be in this world because there is so much violence, mindlessness, destruction, disregard for nature and all of earth’s creatures.  You are appalled by selfishness, dishonesty, and greed.
  17. You are not regular viewers of the nightly news, because it’s just too negative and depressing. You tend to be more optimistic. You value peace and harmony.
  18. You have a strong desire to move to a new place you have never been before. You may have lost interest in your previous career and have a calling to follow your “true purpose”, um, what you are meant to do, even if you don’t know what it is yet. This may lead to a massive change in your life!!!

My journey as a light worker has empowered me in ways and evolved my soul like nothing has… The term “light worker” is misunderstood as some people think light workers feel superior to others, but this is not the case. Light workers are not better or higher than anyone else! We are all on a journey on our own path with a unique history or experiences that have helped us to grow and move forward on our path. There are people more evolved than us and people less evolved but each soul is moving at their own pace in their own time.

My life had been one of a workaholic avoiding deep relationships and proving who I am. Although I had always had the vision, I had a great deal of FEAR and a huge inner critic committee that kept me following the “norm” and “surviving”. This is what I had always done and was comfortable doing. I was teacher and I knew how to save or stand up for the “underdog” or less fortunate students even though I could not do it for myself. I saw myself as a healer, author, and speaker but did not have the courage to step into it. Many times I silenced the dream, as I did not feel “good enough” to follow it.

I was following society’s norms and everyone else’s expectations of who I was suppose to be instead of following my true passion in life. Sadly, in the words of Doreen Virtue, “I never realized that I was “pushing the snooze button” continuously on my spiritual alarm clock”. I woke up when my identical twin passed away four years ago. I begin surrending to my creator and asking for help to follow my passion in life. When I finally committed to my life purpose and was reintroduced to God through a close friend, many doors began to open one right after the other. At first, the fears came up, but I began to “trust the mystery” and my own transformation happened in miraculous ways that I myself could have never planned and my dream became my reality.

I have experienced all stages of confusion, illusions, and ignorance while actively pursuing my heartfelt mission to heal humanity and be a light for others who were still struggling on their own journeys. I have consciously chosen to become entrenched in the “karmic Circle of Life” to be able to be the light for others. This means feeling my fears and walking through them to be the vulnerable, authentic me. I am a woman who is no longer afraid to live and love passionately while pursuing my dreams and living my true purpose no matter where it takes me!!!  As I continue my soulful journey, I continue to gain valuable tools in which to empower other women become authentic and live from their bliss in true happiness, love and peace.
