Dowsers shouldn’t call themselves “Lightworkers”. Not if they want to be safe.
I just used a word I rarely use–‘should’. But I did it on purpose. I want to get your attention.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m a Karuna™ Reiki Master Teacher. It’s common for healers and energy workers to call themselves “Lightworkers”. So what’s wrong with that?
Nothing. Unless you like being safe. If you are a crusader and see yourself as someone fighting the forces of Darkness, then that is what you get. You get the forces of Darkness to fight.
In a dualistic world, it is tough not to think this way. It’s hard to accept that darkness has just as valuable a place here as light. But it’s true. You cannot have one without the other. And the harder you try to eradicate one, the stronger it gets. Why? Because the balance overall remains the same. Think of the symbol of yin and yang. Equal amounts of white and black. To keep the symbol intact, if you make the white bigger, you have to also make the black bigger.
Or think about it this way. What do Superman and Batman have in common? Superpowers used for good. And what do they attract? Super Villains with nasty superpowers they use for evil. This is not a coincidence. It’s how the world works.
I wish I had a dollar for every dowser and Lightworker I’ve met who experience the “Superman” syndrome after they commit to using their gifts for ‘good’. I’m not saying it’s wrong to commit to sharing your gift. But if you haven’t done enough self-work; if you still have a judgmental attitude about right and wrong, you’re in for quite a bumpy ride. If you saddle up as a Lightworker, prepare to meet the forces of Darkness.
That which you fight grows stronger. You are giving your power to it by judging and fighting it. What you resist, persists. We’ve all heard the sayings that remind us of this, but do we always apply them? Sadly, no.
I’ve known prominent professional dowsers and healers who find themselves spending hours a day clearing entities and negative influences and energies. Sometimes it all spins out of control or affects health seriously. But this situation can be avoided.
Don’t put out a neon sign saying you’re a crusader. Don’t be a crusader. Just share your gift in a nonjudgmental way. Know that you are making a difference, but be aware when you are judging or labeling people or situations as ‘good’ or ‘bad’, ‘light’ or ‘dark’. That judgment can attract powerful negative energies.
If you find yourself beset by nasty energies, don’t be scared or upset. It’s teaching you about the reality you are creating. It’s teaching you about protection. It’s just an opportunity to learn to be detached and nonjudgmental. To see the whole world as perfect, even if it isn’t to your liking. It’s a HUGE lesson, but it can transform your life and make you a lot more like the Dalai Lama. And he seems to be a totally cool person.
