Enlightenment is the common goal of light workers. When a person has a higher understanding of spiritual concepts, they are generally referred to as enlightened. Many believe that the more spiritually educated they become, the more enlightened they also become. When one looks back at the truly enlightened beings that have lived on earth, such as ascended masters and other highly spiritual people, it must be noted that most of them did not become spiritual because they studied spirituality. It was something else that raised their consciousness to higher levels.
This is not to imply that studying spiritual knowledge is unhelpful. On the contrary, it is exceedingly useful in this day and age. That is why it is now so readily available. Exposing yourself to the higher vibrations of spiritual information has a positive, uplifting effect, but study alone does not make a person enlightened. Even comprehending multi-dimensionality will not. So then, what is the answer?
The best place to start is to examine those individuals who were truly enlightened. What made them different from others? To begin with, one thing they had in common was that they did not focus their attention on the mundane aspects of life, which occupied the minds of the average person. Instead they pursued higher vibrating endeavors, including helping others and teaching higher truths. In the process, by living differently than those around them, they created new thought patterns within themselves. As a result, their actions were different and others reacted differently to them. As these ascended beings continued to live within their own reality, they began to appear unique to the rest of the world—because they were.
As time passed, they found that they were capable of doing things that others were not. Does that sound familiar? Some were able to heal, others had clairvoyant capabilities or other “mystical” skills. In other scenarios, some were just born into an enlightened state of mind. Because of this, they never fit in and often suffered, but at some point in their life, that which did not work in the past began to fit in perfectly. Does that sound familiar? These were the avatars of an age, singular beings that came to earth to lift the vibration of humanity out from the darkness. So, why do such beings not come to Earth today? The answer is simple, there is no need for one avatar to raise the vibration of humanity, when there are thousands of Light Workers to do the job.
The question remains, how does one become enlightened? Think about who would be the most enlightened person you could imagine. Some might say that it’s the person who meditates the most or goes on the most spiritual pilgrimages or even someone who has the most knowledge about esoteric modalities. Such a person may be quite spiritual and very enlightened, but it is not a result of studying and practicing that someone raises their vibration. So then, is there a magic potion that brings one into a state of enlightenment? In addition, if study and practice do not result in enlightenment what is the point of these exercises?
Exposing the mind to new ideas, schools of thought, spiritual practices, healing modalities and messages from higher beings, brought through channels, creates new neural pathways. As a result, the mind functions differently and programming that is non-life-sustaining is overridden by vibrations that are beneficial to the Light Body. Over time, new ways of thinking replace outdated ones. The results can be seen by the individual both in their spiritual and physical makeup. Eventually a different person is born in the same body and with the same brain, but with a renewed spirit.
As this happens, it is possible to become in touch once again with the true self, the self that has been with you since you were born. You see, when you came into this world, you were a truly enlightened person, totally in touch with the divine source of everything. You trusted in life and purity of being. That is what enlightenment is, it’s being yourself in a truly and completely natural state. Granted, had you remained in that condition, you would not have been able to survive and function in society, so you learned how to live in the world. The price for this education was becoming less enlightened than when you started. So you see, you know what it means to be enlightened, because you started off that way. Therefore, the goal of a Lightworker in the New Era, is to return to that state of knowing who you are, your true self, and letting go of what you have learned that no longer serves you. In essence, you are not becoming enlightened, rather, you are returning to enlightenment. The spiritual modalities that you study in the process, are tools. The information that you receive from your higher self is to be used to replace the information that you received from the collective consciousness.
The New Era is the time for Lightworkers. Everything you need is readily available. It’s no coincidence that the Internet has made it possible for all information to be at your fingertips. With so much information available, how do you know what is relevant to you? You’ve heard it before, if you resonate with it then embrace it. This is really the best part, you get to pick what you like. Isn’t that what you’ve always wanted? There’s a reason why you are attracted to a certain modality, or crystal, or angel. It is because you are meant to work with what attracts you. So in the end, being enlightened is the process of getting back to yourself and once you do, magical things happen and you are an example to everyone else. Remember, life is good, all is well and everything is vibration.
