Do you feel different from everyone else? Do you have a nagging feeling there is a purpose you came to earth for? Some people claim that it could be because you are a Lightworker.

Many people feel like they are different from the general population. They are bemused by the world and wonder what the point of it all is. They have a deep feeling that there is something they should be doing, but they just can’t quite grasp what it is. If you feel like this, from the New Age perspective, you are a Lightworker.

Lightworkers, also known as Starseeds, Indigos, or Crystal children, are believed to be people who came to this earth with a mission to change the energy of the planet. They are said to be here to overthrow negative energies and to foster light and love in the world.

Being a Lightworker is not an easy destiny. In a world that is not quite ready for this energy yet, it seems that Lightworkers often feel misunderstood and isolated. But you are not alone. There are many people in the world right now who long to bring light and love into the world.

Lightworkers came to this world with a mission, according to New Age beliefs. Unfortunately, once we enter the matrix of this physical manifestation, we suffer some amnesia. We can’t quite remember why we came and what we are meant to do.

But the deep feeling of having a purpose in this lifetime remains inside us like a seed, waiting patiently for us to water it and nurture it into bloom.

New Age practitioners say that if you believe that you are one of these special people, you will probably recognize the following 7 signs:

1. You don’t feel part of society

You may feel you don’t fit in with your society, community, and even your family. Lightworkers don’t understand popular preoccupations with money, material possessions, and competition. Deep inside you know the planet has resources enough for all to live in abundance and you can’t understand why society does not make this happen.

You cannot stand selfishness and greed and have lost all hope in politicians’ ability to create a fairer world. You are frustrated that society seems to be so slow in moving towards fairness and equality.

2. You have longings you cannot explain

There seems to be something missing from your life. It’s like nostalgia for something past or homesickness for somewhere you can barely remember. You know that you belong somewhere and you are constantly searching for a place where you will be understood.

Sometimes you might meet someone who you just click with and you know that you have been together once before and this develops into an incredible friendship or relationship. But often, you feel frustrated that you can’t quite find a place where you belong.

3. You know you have a job to do

Deep inside, you know you have a mission here on earth. It’s like a word that is on the tip of your tongue that you just can’t grasp. You have probably read many books about science, philosophy, and spirituality, but you just can’t find the answer to the questions you have.

You may eventually realize that the answers are not in books or talks or even in articles on the internet – they are deep inside you, you simply need to learn to tune into a way of thinking and feeling that speaks a different language.

4. You have a deep desire to be of service to others

Lightworkers are saide to be very sensitive and highly empathetic. They feel others’ pain and have a deep desire to heal. If you are a Lightworker, you may be frustrated when those you love are in pain but can’t seem to see what you are showing them.

You long to pull them out of the delusion of the matrix and show them the love and light of the world, but they can’t yet see the way. You may foster this need to help into a creative pursuit such as writing or painting, or you may work at being of service in a more traditional way, as a medical professional, counselor, or alternative therapist.

5. You are a seeker

As a Lightworker, you have probably always been drawn to spiritual practices and from a very young age, you have been interested in different ways of thinking. Lightworkers often start with their own family religion but then expand their reach in search of answers. Lightworkers are said to often suffer from depression, anxiety, or other mental health problems.

Frequently, this is caused by feeling there is something missing in your life and that you are different and don’t fit in. You have worked hard to make yourself good enough.

However, you always were good enough. You are not sick; in the New Age perspective, you just exist on a different energy level than most people in society. It’s not always an easy place to be because you are a pioneer in a world that mainly misunderstands these things.

6. You may have physical signs of difference

Sometimes Lightworkers are said to have unusual eyes, perhaps of a startling color, or different colors. You might also have birthmarks or other distinctive features. These marks were often called witch marks in the past.

You may also have problems with vision or hearing or a long-term health condition. Many of these issues are caused by trying to fit into a world that isn’t quite what you were designed for. It can be hard to be so intuitive and sensitive in a world that honors the material above all else.

Alternatively, you might have very highly developed senses. An acute sense of taste or touch is very common among Lightworkers, according to New Age practitioners. You may also have a very strong sense of intuition and psychic abilities.

7. You believe in things you cannot see

Lightworkers understand that there is more to this universe than mere matter. Your scientific explorations may have validated these beliefs, as even physicists now understand that there are forces that we cannot measure affecting our universe. You understand that energy is as important as material things.

You know that this is not a clockwork universe and you are open to the possibilities of beings and energies that you cannot touch. Lightworkers often feel guided by these energies, either in the form of thoughts and intuitive guidance, or in the form of higher beings, or angels.

You are open-minded and understand deeply that there is more to this world than meets the eye.

What it means to be a Lightworker, according to New Age beliefs

It seems that being a Lightworker is difficult and you need to take seriously the need to take care of yourself if you believe that you are one. You must protect yourself from negative and draining energies and spend time recharging your own energy to allow your inner light to shine and make a much-needed difference in the world.

If you recognize several of these signs, the next step is to find out more about your life purpose. You probably already have an underlying sense of what this is. This may be a lifelong dream or a vision that has recently developed.

If you need more help discovering your job here on earth, you might like to develop a meditation routine or other ritual to help you connect with your inner self. Other ways to discover your higher purpose include journaling, writing with the non-dominant hand, or shamanic journeying.

New Age practitioners also suggest that it can help to connect with others who have light worker energy. There are plenty about and we can support each other on a journey to bring more light and love into the world.

According to New Age beliefs, every interaction you have is an opportunity to share your light and raise the vibrations of the world. So do all you can to keep your vibration high so that you can spread the light.

    I would imagine that many lightworkers have suffered from addiction problems as well. I’ve been plagued and blessed with addiction my whole life. I’ve often viewed the fight to enjoy life or that I will ever be redeemed in the eyes of society as futile. I have survived and now have so many experiences from the gutter, behind bars, loss and pain, that I know I may be more easily received by many given that I have personally lived through just about any and all that could be thrown at the underdogs of the world. I find inspiration in this article that who I am and how I feel is not narcissism or some other type of delusion. Kept to myself and managed maturley I’ve managed to keep on my path of humility. Actualy I’ve rarely a choice given that I’ve had close to nothing. I can’t help but wonder what happens with the lightworkers who are lost to the world due to suicide or drugs. Spirit guides?.. Protectors?.. ‘re-incarnation. And yes, where can we start to fuel the traits that define one as a lightworker, I’m a bit of an introvert but know the only genuine happiness I’ve felt is from helping others. Starting from nothing, with nothing, homeless even how to progress in a way that drives one to keep going

    Today, I met someone who said that I was a lightworker. After reading your article , I find now, so many answers to the questions, and now have the validation to be truly myself. Thank you.

    I am pleased that so many people could relate to this post. It makes me happy to think there are more people discovering their Lightworking gifts every day. I know it isn’t always easy to be Lightworker in our current society and this can lead to mental health problems and addictions. But as the world becomes more accepting of people who are different, I believe we will find a place where we belong. By working together we can bring more Light and Love to the world.

    It is very difficult to be a lightworker in a troubled world, and it’s extremely difficult to be one in environments which are troubled by considerable lack of values, amidst wars, and high levels of crime and corruption. Is it possible to preserve the mission? I in my 50s and I feel like I am done with it not in my own choice but because the environment wants to get rid off me.

    I have always believed that I took birth for a bigger purpose. To share love and happiness among the people with whom I meet is one of them.
    I am here for a bigger cause and everyday I am trying to push myself to look out for the truth behind this materialistic world.
    I have immense power and energy inside me and I feel it everyday I wake up and whenever I perform meditation.
    I feel the glow in my body when I start doing meditation.
    I am a lightworker
