It takes all kinds of Superheroes to heal and change the world.
In the twenty plus years that I have been involved with the world of complementary and ancient healing practices, I have learned that there are all kinds of Superheroes – men and women who are here to heal and change the world. When it comes specifically to the people I know who are healers, they seem be of one of three varieties – lightworkers, shadow workers and middle-world workers. Each of these varieties of healers bring their own unique gifts and talents to the fore and have their own audience to which they have been sent to minister.
Lightworkers are easy to identify and are those who have been given the most attention as we have moved into the new age and ascension movements. Lightworkers are just that – light. They tend to speak the language of angels and fairies and draw our attention to things of sacred geometry, cellular healing, quantum layers, and mystical realms. Not seeming to be “from here,” Lightworkers dress in ethereal almost mystical attire – a reflection of the light and love filled realms from whence they came. Lightworkers are highly attuned to “the heavens” and are here to remind us of and re-attune us to our Divine, angelic and otherworldly nature. You know when you are in the presence of a Lightworker because they are really nice and give you the impression they would not hurt a fly. The challenge for Lightworkers is just this – that they are sometimes too nice – not trusting their intuition about another’s deceit or lack of integrity. Lightworkers can also be challenged when their quest for the light is at the expense of or privileged over the human experience – the reason all of us are ultimately here.
If we can think of healers existing along a continuum, Shadow workers exist on the opposite end of the spectrum from Lightworkers and as such, possess polar opposite gifts. Shadow workers are fiery-warrior types and possess a darkness about them. They live in the shadows and are comfortable in the darkness. As such, they are extremely gifted in helping us to identify our shadows and bring them to the light. Shadow workers help us dive deep into our fears, our past woundedness and traumas, our compulsions and all the parts of ourselves we have hidden from the world – and often from ourselves. Shadow workers are relentless in their pursuit of darkness so that it can be integrated within us. Shadow workers are masters as Recapitulation and Soul Retrieval and help people reassemble the lost parts of themselves into a harmonious, cohesive whole. Since most people resist their shadows, Shadow workers often feel dangerous – at least at first glance. Again, they have a darkness about them. While this darkness can be a gift, it can also be the bane of the Shadow worker’s existence if not treated with respect. Many shadow workers I know have struggled with addictions. These addictions, I believe, arose because of the shadow worker’s fear of their own power – and perhaps for some – because in the past they have used their powers for their own benefit (and even to cause harm) and not for the common good. Healing the past frees shadow workers to do what they came here to do – help people fully embrace the HUMAN that they came here to be.
Middle World Workers
Middle World Workers are those who exist somewhere between Lightworkers and Shadow Workers. In other words, they are a little bit of both. Middle Workers are drawn to the heavens, but are also comfortable in the shadows. Middle Workers seek to bring light and love into the world, but also invite us to embrace and integrate the shadow. Middle Workers understand that we are not here to avoid or transcend the human experience – instead, we are here to live it fully, while also remembering the fullness of our Divine nature. Middle Workers invite us to remember the fullness of our Divinity while living the fullness of the human condition. Middle Workers seek to assist people in bringing their Divine nature fully into the human experience while inviting the human experience to become Divine. “As above, so below,” might be considered the mantra or mission statement of Middle World Workers. You can recognize Middle World Workers in their approachability and in the way they are authentically real and how they seem to be of light and love while living the human experience.
One ring to rule them all…
In this human experience – we need them all – Lightworkers, Shadow workers and Middle World workers. We need those who remind us of our light, along with those who invite us to confront and integrate our shadow. And, we need those who help us to find the glue that holds it all together.
What kind of worker are you?
