Being a spiritual leader or light-worker can imply a number of things. It can mean that you wish to use the gifts you have discovered and which are being developed within yourself towards a spiritual career. Or it can simply mean that, trusting the spiritual path you are on, you use your understanding informally in your day-to-day life to be a light for others.
I would like to share with you the teachings from the Spirit Guides of one of my clients, taken from a reading I recently did on finding his spiritual career path. Just a week before this reading, I was commenting on how elusive the words are to describe how one becomes more spiritual. As Spirit often does, They soon found the means to answer my question. Here is the eloquent wisdom They shared:
“The key to becoming a spiritual leader is to grow the trust within yourself, meaning that you have a solid connection to the Spirit World and can trust it fully and at all times. The main focus becomes not on what your mind is telling you or what society thinks is right; the only compass that guides you is your bridge to the Spirit side of life and this could relate to your guides, your higher self, angelic beings or The Great Spirit. It is not an easy path to follow, at least in the beginning when you are still learning how things work. Putting yourself in the hands of another is not something that comes easily to you humans. The trust is built little by little until one day you recognize that you are fully being guided by Spirit in all you do.
Let us talk about the ego at this juncture. As you progress along the spiritual path there is a shedding of the old you – the old ways of thinking and being. This is exactly as it should be. Nothing worth retaining is lost in the process. What is lost is the part of you that rebels against The Great Spirit and wants to go your own way without a regard for the bigger picture of life. As the ego is shed the primary focus becomes a drive to bring more light and love to the world and to those you encounter. Your goals and The Great Spirit’s become one and the same. And yet in all of this you retain your individuality, that special spark that makes you who you are – unique yet one of the whole.
As your connection with Spirit solidifies what you will notice is a gradual falling away from unhelpful thoughts because the ego is receding and the Divine in you is growing. It is hard to see day by day but those around you begin to notice a difference in how you see the world. If you, yourself, take a moment to think back to earlier times you will recognize just how far you have come. Even now if you do this you will see the difference. Is not your wish to bring light into the world even now? If your answer is Yes, and we know that it is, you can be assured that you are already well on your path to attainment. It is the practical side in you that is really asking ‘From where does my next paycheque come?’ This is an entirely different matter. Let us speak to that now.
We are not able to materialize for you a career until we know that what it is you are truly seeking has been solidified in your own mind and is in alignment with The Great Spirit. We need to speak to that last part. It is not The Great Spirit’s intention that you should be given certain tasks to complete or directives to follow. This is not the way of the Divine. However, it needs to be true that what you choose to do fits within the bigger plan which is afoot to bring healing and rebirth to the human species. This is why a partnership with your spirit guides is the best path forward. We, by extension, are your gateway to the Divine. We will guide you in what you seek so that it aligns perfectly within the greater plan. The freedom which is available to you is limitless but you cannot set your own course to get there. We are the ones who decide on the details in order to bring the opportunities to you. You set the ‘what’ and we take care of the ‘when and where’. But if you are not hearing us then how can we guide you?”
