Many lightworkers experience some anguish and discomfort as they live life on Earth. They often feel disconnected from the happenings in the world and feel like misfits in society. Many of them are also empathic and sensitive, and find many worldly interactions draining. Once awakened spiritually, their level of sensitivity seems to get even stronger. In general, they feel very different from most people and this can be the case right from childhood.
Now why does it help to know all of this?
It is certainly not to judge ourselves or others.
It is to simply to recognise the fact that every soul has taken on a unique role in the cosmic drama. Knowing why we are made a certain way, what interests us, what does not interest us, what awakens our passions and what our sensitivities are can help align us with our life's mission. And a lightworker's mission is not to live life on Earth feeling uncomfortable. It is to do the work of seeding the planetary consciousness with higher frequencies. And that must be our single pointed focus in the midst of all the discomfort.
As we honour our unique selves, we also make room for others to be their unique selves. We play our role, while allowing everyone else to play their role too.
So, the next time you feel out of place in this world, allow the feeling to inspire you rather than drain you. Know that you are who you are for a reason.That reason is your strength, your sacred mission, your unique light. Shine your light bright!
