How is a Lightworker Different from a Spiritual Seeker?

Print Friendly, PDF & Email


In my opinion, one way in which the lightworker is different from the spiritual seeker is that the spiritual seeker seeks enlightenment while the lightworker intends to serve, whether enlightenment results or not.

Archangel Michael once made the following distinction in a personal reading:

“When you use the term ‘dramatic enlightenment experiences,’ you are talking about Nirvana. You are talking about the unity of all with One.

“It is not to say that you will not experience it, but you cannot ― well, you can if you wish; if it is your choice – simply remain in that state of unity, of Oneness. But you cannot be fully conscious and in service, in action, if that is where you are.” (1)

So we cannot be in service and lost in rapturous contemplation of the One.  The two don’t go well together for any servant of the Mother; i.e., any lightworker.

Unless experiencing enlightenment is part of our mission, we may be called upon to subordinate it to the demands of our service agreements.

The request to put enlightenment to one side can also be mission-specific. For instance, I’m apparently a pillar so I need to stay here till the end. That affects my intentions.

“It is not just desirable, but in fact necessary, crucial – particularly because, Sweet One, I remind you, you are a pillar – that you not venture too far ahead of where people are.” (2)

So I’m not rushing ahead or taking shortcuts or hankering to finish the race. I’m just staying with the group because that’s what the service contract called “pillar” does. Not rushing ahead is a mission-specific requirement.

A spiritual seeker places nothing ahead of constant spiritual ascension, no matter how far they leave the rest behind.

Franklin Merrell-Wolff would be an ideal example of a modern western spiritual seeker who through determined spiritual practice became an adept and went, Michael tells me, as far as the Eleventh Dimension while still in the body. (3) Unprecedented.

Seekers tend to suspend all service contracts and concentrate on going inward. Or, for a very few, going outward. Pretty soon, they lose their appreciation and desire for that which to them is illusion.  This is not the ideal mindset for serving, as Michael pointed out.

Before you think the servant will be left out, the reason we’ve been selected to serve is that we’ve been through the Ascension process already.

As the Divine Mother reminds us: “You are angels in form, and you have been birthed even prior to that as the essence of One. So you return to that while keeping your magnificent form.” (4)

Or in even more picturesque terms by Archangel Gabrielle:  “You are angels in form dancing upon a planet which is an archangel.”  (5)

“Angels in form” are already ascended.

If we hadn’t ascended already, we’d be focused on our own enlightenment; if we have, we can better serve the enlightenment of the ascending collective.

And we’ll regain our natural evolutionary level upon finishing this assignment. Probably more: We too will ascend. (6)

So servant or lightworkers will not lose out. We’ve agreed to be waiters at the banquet of Ascension. (7) We’ll get our meal later.

Steve: What level of Enlightenment or dimension did [Franklin Merrell-Wolff] achieve?

AAM: He primarily operates in the 7th to the 11th …

Steve: When did he break away from the third dimension. Which of his experiences was that?

AAM: Actually, he broke away from the restriction, shall we say it that way, of the third dimension long before he ever started to truly practice or write.

Steve: So he was always doing it as an ascended being?

AAM: That is correct. (Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Jan. 18, 2020.)

(6)  Terrestrial and galactic ascended masters discuss the fact that they too will be ascending. Here are the Arcturians for instance:

“We are in the process of shifting our reality. We say ‘we’ for all dimensions, realities and worlds are shifting into a higher frequency of expression. As it is for the least, it is for the greatest.

“Hence, as the third/fourth dimension releases itself from the shackles of the third dimensional reality of illusion and shifts into the fifth dimension of the light of cosmic truth, all the dimensions above the fifth also shift into their next higher dimensional expression.

“As we make this transition, there is a release, a letting go, of what has been our predominant expression of self. For example, we Arcturians are expanding our baseline frequency from the eighth through tenth dimensions into the eleventh and twelfth dimensions.” (The Arcturians through Sue Lie, Multidimensions, Aug. 21, 2014, at

And Gaia’s ascended masters:

“Some of you are already aware of the fact that a number of us – the Ascended Masters – are moving into a much higher vibration as a result of our own progress.” (Kuthumi, “11:11 Turning of the Tide,” Nov. 2, 2008, through Michelle Eloff, Nov. 2008, at

You’re no longer on 3D time

You’re No Longer on 3D Time

by Brenda Hoffman, July 22, 2019,

Dear Ones,

You’re probably feeling the need to advance your 5D self before your physical body is ready to do so.

For you’re tired of drifting from one cocoon stage to the next without much intent or joy. You want to do this or that as predicted by our information or that of other channels. So it is you’re attempting to push yourself into actions not yet available or fully developed, just as is true for most young teens.

You’ve passed the 5D Rubicon. There’s no need or advantage to pushing yourself in any direction, for you’ve reached your mellow plateau. Even so, many of you are functioning as if you need to do something to proclaim your new being in ways other than breathing. That you should create something big to dramatize your new being, to shine your light more radiantly.

In truth, just being is shining your light more brightly than in any Earth lifetime.

Yet you pine for a physical expression that will convince you and those following that you’ve completed your transition preparation. Such is likely not to be for a few days or weeks. This is a resting stage. Something 3D you is not necessarily comfortable with. For in 3D, resting meant stagnation, rather than preparation. ThreeD was displayed outside yourself.

If you rested in 3D to gather information or prepare your physical being before moving forward, you and others wondered if you should see a specialist to determine why you were listless or uninterested in that which you were once interested. Instead of congratulations for daring to review your 3D needs in private, you often accepted social labels such as depression, anti-social behavior, anxiety, etc.

So it is you now wonder what’s wrong with you instead of congratulating yourself for achieving the ability to follow your inner directives.

There’s nothing wrong with you. In truth, everything is right. For you’re allowing yourself to grow from within, despite your concerns that it might be wrong for you to do so. Believing such is a 3D extension, not a 5D reality. Because you’re changing by the minute, you might find yourself sad, joyful, angry, and filled with remorse within minutes, just as was true in your early teen years. You’re no longer a child (3D), yet not quite fully a 5D adult. So you pine for skills you likely are now discovering but are not yet able to fully actualize.

You feel as if your 5D interest or skill is floating somewhere out there where you can sense it, but not touch it – just as was true when you were a teen. Even though you could see the freedoms you would have as a young adult, your parents or society likely stopped you from claiming those freedoms prematurely.

So it is now. You might be able to sense your new skills and interests, but you’re not yet physically prepared to fully claim them. Allow your physical body to catch-up to your new totality. If you remember, your physical being has been the last to adjust throughout your transition phases.

Many of you wonder when this rest period will be over, for you are restless. Not that you know what you wish to do, only that you want to do something to spark your interest in life. For it seems like years since something was of interest to you. In a sense, such is true. For your transition, even though short-lived in Universal time, has consumed much of your ‘adult you’ Earth time. You’re like a racehorse at the starting gate, fully prepared to give your all, waiting impatiently until the gates open so you can run free.

Your spiritual and emotional beings are ready.  You’re merely allowing your physicality to catch up. But that explanation probably doesn’t make your wait any easier. For those of you at the forefront are Olympic champions created to run, create, to be in joy and love.

So it is you’re becoming more impatient by the day. The gates will open when you’re fully capable of running instead of walking as is true for most of you now. Rest. Anything else will be counterproductive.

You’re not a slow learner nor less developed than your 5D cohorts. You are in exactly the right place at the right time. Now allow yourself to rest or function as your inner-being directs, for you’re no longer on 3D time. So be it. Amen.
