Liightworker? Bringing back the ‘human’ to humanity.
Will you commit?
I adopted the name and created my own little concept around the term ‘Lightworker’ because it is a way for people to come together who want to be a part of something beautiful in the world and want to live in a positive and happy mindset. It’s also perfect for those of us who are currently feeling a little lost, a little defeated, overwhelmed or a little down because it gives you a place to go. It offers us all a wonderful purpose to help guide us while we are still understanding our life and working out what our true gifts are, and while our purpose unfolds.
Trying to explain what I do in a small box on my home page was just don’t going to happen so I decided to write my novel in a blog for those whose interest was tweaked.
I have always been ‘advised’ to shorten my posts, get to the point, and narrow things down when writing and trying to build my brand and reach my audience. Same goes with photos, show more of your physique, edit your photos so they ‘pop’, yada yada yada. So while I agree marketing (aka manipulation) definitely works and can generate a bigger audience which = cha ching more cashola, it just didn’t vibe with me.
Fill your social media and home pages with profiles and people who make you feel good, who challenge you to think deeper, who encourage you to work on yourself, to be the best person you can be, and who allow you to feel more connected to a greater purpose and passion.
There are so many beautiful people and profiles that draw you in and look good from the outside, but if you pay attention you'll realise they are doing nothing more that keeping you focused purely on how your body looks and how much you apparently are lacking when it comes to material things.
Be proud of your body, love your body, accept your body...don't get me wrong these are all great sentiments with mostly goodwill behind them, however I can't seem to get on board with these messages entirely because I think we should be more concerned with WHY the fuck are we so focused and concerned with how our body 'looks' purely on the outside in the first place?
Society pushes the idea that to be happy and successful you need either a perfect body, lots of money, and fame (either celebrity or social recognition), but what most of these things require are for the majority of people (if they are truthful with themselves) are certainly not worth the sacrifice.
Today I was looking through Marcus's iPhone album on the computer. As I clicked through the photos I realized how many photos of me never really 'made the cut'. Not that I go to outrageous efforts taking photos but I still (like everyone) judge my photos harshly against all the perfect photos of people with perfect outfits, perfect hair, perfect make up and perfect angles.
I see way too many women (especially younger women) these days investing all their time and energy trying to simply look good and meet society's ideal. This is at the expense of the true gifts, talents and purpose they are here to share with the world. They suppress their minds and intelligence by blindly following along what they think they need to be to find success and happiness, to wonder why they are so miserable, anxious and lost in life.
This is my archived story from my 'about me' page. I wrote this a while ago and didn't want to just delete it from my website completely. It is an important part of my journey and another step to finding real health, true happiness, and finding clarity in my global work. I am sure there is some value in reading this story for so many of you. Life is just a journey so know and understand that no matter where you currently are, with an open mind, conscious effort, and commitment to yourself, you can change your life entirely and find so much beauty, passion, purpose, and joy in life.
Just so you all know, I fucking struggle with the same things you do almost every other day! I get so many messages from girlfriends, clients, social media contacts, saying how strong I am, resilient, and wise etc.
But I think it's right for you to all know a few things about me you don't see through social media. Don't get me wrong my life is great, I am happy, I am healthy, but life is a journey. I have to experience all the highs/lows, good/bad, and total BS that you also do, because we are all on a path that expects us to grow throughout our lives.
Tall poppy syndrome is old news. There is no space for it anymore.
It's outdated and it shows a lack of intelligence or self worth in those who partake.
And it's just plain blahhhh boring.
Tall poppy player...WE ALL NOW SEE YOU! You can't hide anymore. You are showing your true struggle, so while we won't wish harm or pain for you we know more about you than you think when you are behaving in this way. You are not 'showing up' others, you are in fact shining the light on yourself.
The environment is being destroyed, people are starving and in pain, animals are being hurt and mistreated, yet all we seem to care about is money, status and our own selfish wants. I don't blame people in general or harbour resentment. What I believe in my heart is that people don't know what they don't know. If people could be shown what is truly happening in our world in a compassionate and understanding way, then I trust people would become more aware and pro-active in the decisions they make each day.
Without social media, TV, and magazines, who would you be?
Seriously though how many people are so muddled, confused and overwhelmed inside their own heads by being exposed so much to what other people are doing?
Be 100% honest with yourself! Do you live you life totally driven by your own unique connection to yourself and what makes you happy? Or do you 'follow', 'copy' and 'post' what others do because you are struggling to find what your own truth and story is, and it seems to be working for them.
