Lightworkers have amazing energy and are so healing to be around.

They can often see the beauty in every situation and they always look for the good in people.

It is wonderful to be one of these individuals or know someone who is a lightworker because it makes life easier when you know what you are dealing with.

In this article, we will take a look at 10 characteristics that help identify if you or someone you know is a lightworker.

Lightworkers Are Highly Empathic

A lightworkers greatest gift is that of empathy. Being an empath means you feel and absorb the energy around you which can cause a lot of confusion and chaos in your life.

Seeing everyone else’s energy, feelings and emotions are sometimes too much for an empath to bear.

It takes time and patience to learn about your empathic abilities so that it does not take over your whole being.

Non the less, empathy is a great gift and essential to aid in transmuting the darkness into the light.

Lightworkers Are Questing For Spiritual Enlightenment

Enlightenment can mean many things, but to a lightworker, it means to be able to connect with your higher self, your soul, and the universe.

This is a process that can take many lifetimes as lightworkers are never fully satisfied until they have reached enlightenment.

The quest for spiritual enlightenment means you will always stay humble and grounded no matter how much knowledge you gain along the way.

Lightworkers Are Highly Intuitive

A lightworkers intuition is second nature. They know things they have not been told to them and can often make connections with others that are invisible to the naked eye.

Do not be surprised if you find yourself asking a lightworker for their opinion as your will generally get an honest answer from them, maybe even without realizing it!

You won’t need to even as a lightworker who is in their power to help you, these highly connected beings already can tell what you will need and will often help you without prompting.

Lightworkers Can Read Energy

There is no fooling a lightworker into thinking you are alright when you are not.

It does not matter how much you smile and pretend you are doing fine, these amazing beings can see through the veil so it is no surprise that they can see through you too.

They can read your energy like a book and this can sometimes be a little off-putting, but at least you will know they are not mistaking the way they read your energy and will help to steer you in the right direction.

Everything is energy and a lightworker knows this.

Advanced lightworkers can read the energy of a room in a second and can connect with souls using this method of energy vibration reading.

Lightworkers Can Read Others Emotions And Often Feel Overwhelmed By Them

A lightworker absorbs so much of what is around them and often it does affect them as they are so sensitive to other people’s feelings and emotions.

If a lightworker is around others that have strong negative energy then this can drain them quickly, leaving the lightworker feeling empty and exhausted if their own protective bubble has not been activated.

When lightworkers need space from those who do not understand how much it takes out of them to be around others, they will often retreat to somewhere quiet where they can recharge their own batteries.

This is so true for myself and other lightworkers I know, we just can’t be around groups of people for very long.

Lightworkers Are Always Learning And Studying

A lightworker is always learning and studying new things all the time which means you may find it hard keeping up with your more advanced friend!

We have a thirst for information and for understanding every type of person.

There are many great tools lightworkers can learn to help them with this.

I for one have studied every tool I could find to help me show people what I could feel about them.

Everything from Tarot to Graphology, anything I could find that helped me show people who they are and how to help them heal and grow.

Lightworkers Can Be Rebellious

It is hard for a lightworker to go along with the crowd.

We deal in truth and often the truth is glazed over so as not to buck the system.

Lightworkers have a deep understanding of the way society works, but unlike other people, they are not willing to conform just because everyone else does.

Lightworkers often find themselves in trouble for speaking their mind or arguing with others who do not understand them which can lead to a lot of stress and pressure over time.

I was one of those rebellious teenagers that spoke my mind at every opportunity and I am now proud to say my family is very supportive of what I do.

Lightworkers Are Very Sensitive To Their Surroundings And Other People’s Emotions

It is not easy being a lightworker as you can often feel overwhelmed with the things around you, both negative and positive energies.

You may find yourself feeling low or even depressed due to the things you are feeling.

It is important that lightworkers learn ways to protect themselves from others, as it can be hard keeping up with protecting yourself all of the time.

I have learned how to do this using a combination of things, but mostly I have helped myself by being true to who I am and not compromising on my ethics or morals.

If you know something is wrong then don’t be afraid to say it. Likewise, if you see someone mistreating another or an animal, step in and stop the abuse if you can.

I have many times and sometimes I was scared to do so but we must bring the light to the dark, light always wins.

There Are Eight Types Of Lightworker

There are eight types of possible lightworkers. Many lightworkers are more than one type. Many find themselves focusing on one and then transiting into another.

Some, like me, have been all types at one time or another, I have retained more than one aspect as my journey continues, maybe you have too.

They are:

  • Gatekeepers, they ensure love light energy moves through the world without being blocked.
  • Messengers, often seen guiding people to the issues and connecting those who need to educate the many.
  • Healers, these lightworkers need the most space because what they do takes a huge amount of energy.
  • Seers, these are the ones who can see the big picture and are intuitive beyond the norm.
  • Manifestors, make things real and make things happen.
  • Neutralizers, bring peace and stop the wrongs.
  • Adventurers, the pioneers, and trailblazers.
  • Dreamers, they are always using their wishes of a better world to create a more harmonious existence.

Lightworkers Feel Joy In Nature

For a lightworker, a walk or sitting in nature is like every natural healing remedy packed into one.

If a lightworker is feeling low on energy, spending time with animals or in nature revitalizes and rejuvenates them.

I love doing something as simple as feeding the birds at my home in the mornings.

Watching them jump around all excited as they collect my offerings gives me so much joy that that one act alone refuels me enough to last the whole day.

As a lightworker, it is wise to recharge before we run out of energy completely.


The Lightworker is an individual who has committed to living a life of service, and this selfless commitment shines through in their every action.

If you are wondering if you may be one of these individuals, there’s no need for concern or stress as it can take years before the true light inside us all begins to shine.

We don’t choose to be a lightworker, you either are or you are not.

It is not an easy path at first but the more you know about yourself and the more you heal yourself the quicker you can progress through the levels and be who you were born to be.

And trust me, it does get easier, so please never give up on being the best you can be.

Be patient with yourself and others.
