  • A lightworker is a person who feels inspired to help others through spiritual meditation, teaching, healing, prayer, writing and speaking through unconditonal love. The term was popularised by Doreen Virtue in her book The Lightworker's Way published by Hay House in 1997.

    Lightworkers can come from a variety of spiritual traditions and backgrounds, yet generally agree that the healing light they work with is comprised of eternal energy connecting everyone and everything in the universe, and that it is possible for people to connect consciously with divine light energies through intention.

    This energy is sometimes viewed as the energy of the divine creator (or God) within us all – sometimes referred to as "inner light" or divine spark.

    The term Lightworker also refers to a person who works with light energy according to a wide variety of New age and Alternative healing practices. Some of the more common forms of this form of light work are: healing modalities that use different energetic processes such as reiki, and balancing or connecting energies from one place to another, such as from the universe to the earth grids.
