If You’re a Lightworker, You Need to Read This

Are you a Lightworker?

Or, as I like to say these days, Lightbearer, since now we simply just bear our light in order for it to impact the world, rather than toiling and laboring, which is so 3D!

Those who identify as Lightworkers and Lightbearers are those who are called to elevate the planetary consciousness by sharing their light in service to others, so that they may elevate into their own light consciousness.

Often they identify as healers, and practice the healing arts. They work directly with light and energy, and often choose a profession that reflects this.

But, you can be a Lightbearer simply by illuminating light wherever you are, no matter which career path you take.

Many of those who’ve been Lightbearers have been used to the brainwashing of society that all of this is just “woo woo” talk, and is thus, irrelevant. And, that not only is it not important, but that all of this Lightbearing work is for those who “can’t handle” reality because they’re too soft.

Actual Lightbearers be laughing at that last comment, y’all.

Because those who do take up the mantle to journey towards owning their light, and to share that with others, do not do so because they’re too frail for reality.

It’s because they’re strong enough to open themselves to all of what reality truly is, not the skewed illusion that we’re force-fed through this great matrix!

This often puts them on their healing journey, through wanting to heal their own issues, which often turns into deep reflection and looking within.

And, despite what folks may tell you about getting more enlightened, that it’s all daffodils and daisies, the truth is: the more awake you get, the more you see how asleep so many of us still are, and are stuck in outdated energies of 3D, instead of moving towards 5D.

It can be a total bummer.

When you are more aligned with your path as a Lightbearer, and you start to release all that no longer serves you, you start to realize that releasing all that no longer serves you can sometimes mean:

  • saying goodbye to toxic friends and other loved ones, even though you’ve spent all of life since grade school together
  • saying goodbye to outdated patterns, habits, and behaviors, which results in the ego going into panic mode because you are now without your toxic crutches
  • moving away from neighborhoods that you realize you’re not so safe in, after all
  • that after all the illusions you’ve been holding about yourself and your life have been decimated, you then are forced to rebuild yourself from the ashes like a phoenix

That sounds pretty kickass in my book!

It takes a lot of courage to let your heart be broken, to sit with the fragmented pieces of what you once knew. To rebuild yourself from you’ve recently known.

But, it’s ok. Truly.

Because here’s the upside of being a Lightbearer, once you release that toxic baggage, do your inner work to heal the deepest parts of yourselves, and align more with who you really are:

  • you get more in touch with who you really are, thus aligning with the Higher version of yourself (hint: the whole world benefits from you owning your light, as all vibrations reverberate!)
  • your intuitive powers heighten, big time (hello, X-Wo/Myn)
  • because you’re more in touch with your feelings, you may not only experience the dips in life, but also, have access to mind-blowing, heart-opening joy (thus, life is more satisfying)
  • you become more balanced on all levels of your being – body, mind, heart, and spirit (so there is greater peace in your life)
  • with regular mindfulness cultivation, you are able to access deeply grounded parts of you, even when a situation seems challenging
  • you are able to trust that you are being held by Great Spirit/Universe/God/dess, even during the most trying times
  • you see the bigger picture of what is happening on the greater consciousness level
  • you see past the matrix, and may even expand your consciousness to our galaxy (for there is a Nation of our Stars, otherwise known as the StarNation)

So, why do I need to dedicate a whole blog post to us Lightbearers?

Because you are so needed… now.

The world is in turmoil, and systems are breaking down.

The old energies of 3D are falling apart from the seams (finally), which looks like chaos, upheaval, and despair.

The overly masculine energy feeds off our fears, and deflects our attention from the issue at hand, prompting us into frenzy.

Some may believe this is because the darkness has taken over, and why bother fighting?

This is not true. This is, again, matrix talk.

In fact, the light is rising.

Look at those who are being prompted now to awaken.

The old limiting beliefs that have glued the matrix together are beginning to unravel, and veils are lifting from our Third Eye. We are now starting to see with our Intuition, what is really going on in the world. And, how much we’ve been sleeping.

We’ve believed, erroneously, and for so long, that we are powerless.

So, even when sexual assaulting bullies become president, we believe that we are here to suck it up and deal with it.

On the contrary, my love!

It is time to awaken.

To stop playing small.

To stop pretending you’re not powerful.

If you have that inner light that burns, but hasn’t been heard yet, you are already feeling the call.

You are feeling the light within that is being called to come forth.

To own your light, your worth, your greatness.

Even if it’s scary. Because if you haven’t stretched yourself out of your comfort zone in a while, it should be scary.

The kind of scary good that you don’t know what you’ll do with yourself once you finally claim your power, kind of scary.

I can hear the cogs in your brain working now, “Who am I to be so powerful? To be so radiant? To be so visible? To receive so much joy and love?”

I understand this talk. Because, I’ve been there, too.

Unfortunately, part of the Lightbearer’s path has often been to grow up feeling invalidated for who they really are, to be taught that their sensitivities are “weird” or “crazy” or unacceptable, or come from homes that challenge their feelings of self-worth and self-love (especially if they’re empaths). Once transformed, however, they soon see that these childhood challenges served to motivate them to surpass the obstacle, which propels them to claim their light like a warrior.

The ones who’ve been held down the most, are the ones who will fight for their light like nobody’s business.

Because they don’t ever want to go back into the darkness again.

And, this is what the confining, limiting energies fear. Our light and the power that it holds.

And, I don’t mean fight, as in an exhausting, unending conflict kind of fight. That, too, is 3D old energy talk.

Now, we fight by simply and repeatedly owning what is ours. By existing in full radiance.

To be a warrior of light means you release the confines of a limited belief system. Now, more than ever, we are surrounded by ripe energies to create the kind of world we want to live in. With less effort. With less energetic red tape. This is the benefit given to us by those Lightbearers before us who cleared the way for us. (Thank you, thank you, thank you.) They did the heavy lifting, so now we can continue the work with less burden.

So, you see, my love, the Universe really does have our back.

Let us lift ourselves, lift each other, and heal Mother Gaia. She needs us right now.

It is only within the past couple of months that I have awakened into the consciousness of my expanded role as healer. I stand with you, remembering who I was many lifetimes ago, when the land on the Earth was still one continent. Yes, that long ago (aligning with your Twin Flame tends to activate your intuitive abilities, big time, and it turns out that my Twin Flame is a seer.) I have seen, through his eyes, how we started as binary stars, incarnating with each other many times, and finally waking up into who we really are, and have been.

The visibility around all this is quite triggering, actually. I’ve feared the verbal pitchforks and torches ever since I came into this consciousness, which is why it took me so long to share this news with you. But, in the end, none of that fear matters. Because it is time for me to put this out there, already, and get shit done.

As we are all meant to own our greatness, our light, and align more greatly with the Highest versions of ourselves, I stand before you integrated who I was many lifetimes ago, Lady LightStar Bringer.

My role back then was to be a conduit between the StarNation and Mother Gaia. I am now understanding that I am a mouthpiece for the Goddess consciousness, a translator for Mother Gaia, and a catalyst for awakening. I am grateful to remember this, finally, as I have been asleep for quite some time!

As a Licensed Acupuncturist and Reiki Master/Teacher for many years now, this recent awakening has made it clear that in my expanded role as a healer, I must tend to Mother Gaia’s “acupuncture points” (which I’m still downloading). Looks like there’s some traveling in my future!

I do not find it coincidence that I awaken to this now, with what is going on in the world.

Make sure to check out my recent Facebook Live event, which is below. It will explain how I came to learn of all of this, and, as a result, how that will affect my expanded offerings in the future.

So, rise up, loves. We so need you!

What are the ways that you own your light?
I’d love to hear about them in the comments, below!

With light and love,


Facebook Live | My new work! – 2/9/17

In today's Facebook live, I have a special message about a new part of my work that I want to share with you! I reveal a lot about myself here, which was a scary thing to do, since I can often be a private person. But, sometimes, when you've got work to do, you just have to show up and own your light and power.

P.S. Did you know that you can find me on social media? Follow me on InstagramFacebookTwitter, and YouTube!



My first-ever book, A Beginner’s Guide to Self-Healing Techniques that Balance the Chakras, is hot off the presses (it launched last week on Valentine’s Day, 2/14/2017), and is available to order in paperwork or Kindle version on Amazon here!

In this book, I share some of the knowledge that I’ve only been sharing with my patients in my private practice here in New York City. Meant to be a primer book on chakra healing, chakra newbies can enjoy learning about the chakras in a clear way from a Reiki Master/Teacher who’s been practicing Reiki for 12 years, and those with advanced knowledge can use this book as a refresher or reference.

I am incredibly grateful that I get to share this book with you! It has truly been a work of love. <3

Order my book on Amazon >> here <<, and if you’ve already read it, please consider leaving an honest review on Amazon. I’d love to hear what you think!

    I have been reasonably awake for a time now, but have only recently completely embraced it. It’s a little scary, and sometimes a little tough, as I am being urged to clear out all negative energies, which is pretty hard work.

    Thank you for this article though, It’s all been a bit overwhelming lately and this really spoke to me, and made me feel a lot better about the whole thing.

    Lightworkers unite!! 🙂
