When identifying your Lightworker journey, you must pay attention to your inner guidance. Your intuition will guide you in discovering one or more unique gifts in you.


1 | The Gridworkers and Gatekeepers

These Lightworkers deal with the grids on Gaia. They create the human grid that connects the hearts of all awakened humans. They are the actual doorways on the earth that connect sacred sites through lay lines and act as portals that allow light to come to this world through their open hearts.

Gatekeeping is a more advanced form of Gridwork in which Lightworkers work with a team to open interdimensional gates that allow higher levels of light and love to flow in. While Gridworkers bring light through already opened spiritual doorways on Gaia Gatekeepers open doorways where there weren’t any before, or even ones that were closed due to stagnation.


2 | The Divine Lightkeepers

The core mission of this type is to embody the light. No matter the external circumstances, they’re here to retain higher vibrational frequency and presence. They are the lighthouse of humanity.

In tumultuous and chaotic events, their light shines enough to give hope and inspire others. These Lightworkers uplift and support humanity in the unfolding awakening process. Most of them are comedians, motivational speakers, spiritual teachers, celebrities or even local grounded individuals who you feel comfortable to lean on to.


3 | The Transmuters

Transmuters neutralize the negativity and darkness by diving into it and releasing their light. When the negativity is returned to divine neutrality, it’s restored to balance. By transmuting past karma, transmuters work on behalf and for the collective consciousness of humanity.

They might also transmute along their ancestral lines. They may have chosen to be born into an ancestral line that has plenty of negative karma. They serve to release, dissolve, heal, and help their entire ancestral line’s vibration to level up.


4 | The Healers

Healers help practically everything: humanity, the earth, animals, souls and all beings by healing their mental, emotional, physical, or spiritual aspects. As a Healer, you must listen to your internal guidance about the modalities, techniques, and ways in using your gifts through service.

Most empaths are unrealized healers who need to use their emotional abilities to unlock their healing potential. It is important that you focus on healing yourself first because by doing so you can raise your vibration and fill up yourself with the light that can heal, support, serve, love and guide others.


5 | The Seers

These Lightworkers have opened the third eye or psychic sight making them able to see beyond the physical and the veil of illusion. Their gifts include providing readings or services to inspire, empower, and guide others to their truth and the truth of the world.

They may also focus on areas where their energy is much needed for healing, transmutation, or release. It’s here where their light, power, and presence make a big difference. These people are usually the ones who reveal the truth behind the shadows. Most of them are really good psychiatrists who are labeled as parapsychologists (think of Carl Jung), truth activists and even professional psychics.


6 | The Divine Blueprint Holders

Everyone has a divine blueprint, which is a template to a fully awakened self. All Lightworkers have this template, but the Divine Blueprint Holders are the most active in tuning into it and retrieving the codes of awakening. They are best at translating these codes so everyone can understand them and use them to raise the levels of their consciousness.

The Divine Blueprint Holders use sacred geometry and other sacred forms of communication through their work. They can be literally in any field and area of life but it’s the way the create and do things that matters. That’s how they subconsciously communicate The Divine Blueprint.


7 | The Dreamers

The Dreamers serve their gift by dreaming, interdimensional travel, and going into the dream space which allows them to access alternate dimensions of experience.

The Dreamers are usually people who are called psychonauts. They use certain rituals or supplements to embark on psychedelic trips and access realms and ideas that would later inspire and uplift the human spirit. If it weren’t for The Dreamers there wouldn’t be 90% of the art, technology and inventions we have in the world today.

8 | The Messengers

Messengers receive guidance and messages from the Divine, Angels, Ascended Masters, Galactics, and their Higher Self.

They share these messages through videos, blogging, teaching, or writing. Whatever media or platform, Messengers serve humanity through the awakening process by sharing powerful spiritual insight and information. They are explaining to people what’s happening to them making them better understand this journey of evolution through the guidance they receive from the Spirit.


9 | The Manifestors

These Lightworkers are involved in weaving light to manifest changes on the earth, which could come in the form of intending and manifesting timelines, manifesting positive events or creating the template for greater love, greater light and harmonious co-creation. They do this through various ways like meditation and visualization accompanied with self inspection.

The Manifestors manifest for the highest interest of all beings, Gaia, animals, and all of the humanity. But as they keep manifesting they work strongly on their inner selves to make sure their manifestations are not of egoistical nature but from their heart center. Most of these people don’t even focus on manifesting but on clearing the way so what they resonate with is for the good of all.


10 | The Ascension Guides

They are the ascending Lightworkers. They step into greater levels of light and share what they learn about the ascension process. These people step into the edge of enlightenment and push even further by questioning and embodying higher levels of light. Most of their teachings are aimed at the spiritual masters so they can push even further the spiritual evolution of humanity.

The Ascension Guides show us how to overcome some of the pitfalls of enlightenment to help everyone not lose themselves on their way to ascension. Some of their teachings might even contradict the regular teachings of Lightworkers. This is because they approach the truth from a much higher viewpoint and see the flaws that might surface with blind spirituality.


11 | The Wayshowers

Wayshowers walk their talk. They embody the ascension process and live their lives in the most authentic way. They keep the highest interest of all beings and live an awakened and inspired life. These people are not even aware that they serve humanity in some way. All that The Wayshowers do is live in resonance with their truth and the teachings other Lightworkers share with the world.

These people are the heart of the Lightworkers. They are what inspires and motivates other Lightworkers to keep doing what they are doing because there is still good in the world that needs their light. And by looking at them, other Lightworkers are reminded of what really matters.


12 | The Unifiers

These Lightworkers see how everything connects with everything else. They are really good at finding patterns and merging various philosophies into one. They are the translators that gather the teachings of other Lightworkers, the truths and philosophies of spiritual masters, and shape them in a way that is really easy for people to consume.

The Unifiers are good at perceiving the essence behind different opinions. That’s how they can find ways in connecting people together. They naturally see beyond the 2 sides and understand the whole that the 2 sides are a part of. These people are not just for translating but for unifying different teams of Lightworkers together so their impact can be much greater.


Even though you are mostly identifying yourself with one of the 12 types of Lightworkers, you are likely to have some traits from all the other. We are all a different mix of these types based on how these secondary types can benefit the realization of our primary type’s purpose.


Crystals for Opening Your Root Chakra


If you get mood swings, have trouble focusing, or you are experiencing a general "I need to get my shit together" attitude, it may be time to meditate and focus on opening and activating your root chakra.

Your root chakra is located at the base of your spine and is the first of the traditional seven chakra energy centers of the body. It is associated with your identity and foundation. It is the perfect place to begin if you are wanting to transform and take control of your life!

Crystals, stones, and minerals that are connected to the root chakra are typically black or red and they are used for grounding, purifying, releasing, and protection against negativity. They all have subtle differences and areas of focus.


Black Tourmaline

If you have an ex you need to get rid of or people that are draining energy from you, Black Tourmaline is here to cut that crap out of your life for you. If you use several, they can create a field of protection where ever you need. Some even use it near electronics to help counteract any negative effects of magnetic fields. It is also known as power purifier to help release chronic anxiety and feelings of unworthiness.

Black Obsidian

Obsidian is actually volcanic glass. Yeah, it is literally born from the fire of volcanoes. It can help you with some real shit. It is great for uncovering the shadow beyond your ego, so be ready to deal with some deep healing. It is also known to remove draining energetic "hooks" in your aura to provide a protective shield around you. So working with Black Obsidian is actually great for healing your past as well as ancestral pasts. 

Red Calcite

This is one I don't see talked about often. I really feel connected to my Red Calcite, so I am here to be its champion! Red Calcite is really good for detoxifying and connecting to your will. It can absorb and transmute negative energies you are carrying to help increase vitality, so be sure to cleanse it regularly.


If you need balance and clarity if your life, Hematite is for you. It is known to help improve memory and clear thoughts. Since it is made from oxidized iron, it is used to help purify the blood as well. But of it helps provide overall balance, it is a great stone to combine with Black Onyx and Black Tourmaline to help increase releasing and protection.

Black Onyx

If you are confused, erratic, or disoriented, Onyx helps provide stability and calmness to your life. Like Red Calcite, it can absorb and transmute negative energies, so it is perfect for releasing negativity and moving past old habits and relationships. Because it is good a releasing, it can also be used for processing grief and coping with depression.

Black Agate

Agate may be abundant AF, but black agate in particular is great for connecting to your fortitude. While it can help ground and protect like other black stones, it will also help you uncover inner strength to overcome obstacles and achieve victory. 


Thought to be named for the crucifixion of Jesus, Bloodstone is great for healing wounds. It can help you uncover your courage to overcome emotional obstacles. If you are feeling disconnected or overwhelmed, it is great for grounding yourself in your own body. Because it is both green and red, it is a double whammy! It can be used for healing the heart chakra as well as the root.

Red Jasper

This stone is all about empowerment and awakening. It can help you fight back against the those that drain you emotionally. It is also really great to helping heal wounds of sexual violence and reigniting your passion and creativity. Using Red Jasper also helps the process of awakening and raising Kundalini energy as well.


Tarot for Beginners: Where to Start + What You Need to Know


So the idea of reading Tarot sounds really fun but you aren't sure where to start? Are you nervous and maybe intrigued? I felt the same way when I was just beginning too. I didn't want others to think I was fraud and I wanted to make sure I was reading them the "right" way.

Thanks to Hollywood, we typically think of Tarot as a situation where someone is providing a reading for another. But, the good thing is you don't have any pressure to start doing readings immediately for others. Actually, you aren't obligated to do readings at all for anyone if you don't want to.

Learning and connecting with a deck is actually a highly personal and illuminating experience. I've been reading cards for myself for eight years now, and here are a few things you need to know if you are interested in starting your own journey as Tarot reader.


If you don't like what the cards are saying, listen up!

This was a big one for me. When I first got my baby Robin Wood deck, we didn't get along. Mostly because I was in a terrible part of my life and they kept giving me guidance I didn't want to hear. Needless to say, they called me on my shit a lot. 😂 You may even find yourself thinking that you don't think your reading applies to you at all. My advice: Take a moment to look inward and be truthful with yourself. The cards always seem to have the message you need to hear. (And if you still don't think it applies to you, you probably need to cleanse your deck. Keep reading to learn more about that!)


Best way to get started is practice.

No amount of books or research is going to make up for sitting down and getting to know your own deck. Flip through them. Connect with the art. Feel into them. Sleep with them under your pillow. Carry them around with you. Give them a special bag to live in. Store them in a sacred place. Pull daily cards. Give yourself readings. After a while, you will notice patterns in the messages you receive. Record your readings and notice where the patterns emerge and how they measure against your current situations and feeling. This is the wisdom of the cards.

You will get deeply connected to your intuition.

So what I mean here is the more your pull and read cards, the more in tune with your gut you are going to be. You will start to discover an inner knowing that logic tells us all too often to ignore. Here is your power. If you are someone that identifies as female, you understand how intuition can be very strong. Your magick is connected to your innate feelings. Take time to analyze the "knowing" the cards give you not just the "meaning" of the cards.

You can buy ones for yourself.

There is a superstition out there that your cards won't work unless they are given to you as a gift. This is bullshit... If you feel very connected to a deck and your gut is telling you to buy it, then buy it. There is a reason. I personally would advise against just buying a deck because others have it or you think it is pretty. But, if you'd really like to be provided your first deck, tell the Universe/Cosmos/Source that you are open to learning and receiving your first deck. It will appear when it is time.

Everyone reads them differently.

Because everyone is different and we each have our own intuition, we each bring different ideas and experiences to the table if we read for someone else. I personally view decks as a way for us to delve into our personal development. They give us illumination into areas of ourselves so we can improve and remove our own blocks. Some believe they are a way to show what is unfolding before you if you stay on your current path. Regardless, you are the magick. There is no right or wrong way to read cards. There is only your inner guidance and you channeling a message for someone else to receive.

It is okay to look up what your cards mean.

Since everyone reads them differently, if you feel the need to look up the traditional meaning of cards while you are still learning, do it! There is no shame here. We are all students. Like anything, you won't become an expert overnight. You will gain wisdom overtime. The quickest way to learn is to do daily one card draws and journal about them. This will help you understand how a certain card relates to you personally as well as what it can mean for others.

Don't forget to cleanse them.

When you first get a deck (and periodically as you use them), it is a good idea to cleanse and bless them. What you are doing is removing any lingering energies that may be there. You can do this by smoking them with sage or letting them rest under a clear quartz crystal. After that, place them in a sacred place like an altar or under the light of the full moon and ask for blessings. You want your cards to be charged and attuned to you for the best results.

No, Satan isn't going to visit you.

Well, I mean he won't if you don't invite him. 😂 Okay but seriously, this is a concern for some people. I understand. I believe that this is a part of the "sister wound." I will discuss this soon on the blog. Oracle and Tarot cards aren't inherently "evil." That is just a construct we as humans can (and some do) assign to cards. Just like essential oils and crystals aren't evil, decks are simply tools we use to gain a better understanding of ourselves and the world around us.
