Remember that quiet girl in your classroom who would sink down into her chair and blend in, turning the darkest shade of crimson when anyone would mention her name? The only with only a few other friends – the other outcasts? That girl was me in high school. I spent a lot of my life feeling like an outsider, living in my own little world – daydreaming about the life I would have some day, knowing there was more to life than the day-to-day mundane routine, yet having no idea how to get there. Wherever there was. I felt lonesome. A lot.
Yet at the same time, knowing I didn’t fit in didn’t bother me too terribly. I didn’t try to fit in. Okay, there was that one time I tried to be a cheerleader, but I failed myself and the other cheerleaders miserably. What I really yearned for was to find people who were like me – ones who believed in ghosts and sometimes saw them. No big deal, right? Growing up in a tiny town in Central PA, I was pretty convinced I was the only weirdo on the planet.
Lightworkers are moths to each other’s shine. ~ Slade Roberson
For quite some time, my best friend was my outlet and she had to hear all about what book on spirituality or intuition I was reading and how I felt about it – in excess. I’m sure she got tired of it, but bless her little lightworker heart, she always let me talk. And talk. And talk.
But now, she’s getting some relief. I’m meeting more people who I can not only talk to about this part of my life journey, but people who are sharing this same path. If you would’ve told the shy & quiet empath from Central PA that she’d meet other people just like her some day, she might not have jumped around in a cheerleading skirt for months in a desperate attempt to fit in. Just sayin’.
Slade says in his article “Jack Daniels Makes You Telepathic”, “no matter where I find myself or within what degree of diverse company, all manner of shamen, priests, neo-pagans, Radical Faeries, Reiki masters, energy healers, psychics…”
It’s just so true. Now, wherever I go I’m attracting other people like me to me. I’m meeting other lightworkers in droves. And I love it.
Take my friend Victoria, for example. (You should go visit her site. Victoria is an amazing human being and even if you’re not in Toronto, I know you could benefit from her wisdom. Or recipes!). Here’s our story…
A couple of months ago I began training to become a Hospice Toronto volunteer. I knew I’d be meeting other nurturing souls throughout the intense training. What I didn’t expect was to meet one of these souls who recognized me from my website.
Victoria approached me in the beginning of our training and sweetly told me she recognized me from The Daily Awe. I saw her light shining instantly and knew we’d be friends for a long time.
Out of all the people in that room – and out of almost 3 million people in the city we live in – our souls converged in the same room, for the same purpose, gathered around the same cookie plate. How incredible is that?
Lightworkers & spiritual people know this: when you find someone to talk to about this stuff freely, you talk. I’ve got plenty of online buddies who are in the same line of work that I am. And they have been my lifeline for the past year. I’ve learned an incredible amount from these people and I’m so blessed to have them in my life. But nothing feels as good as connecting face-to-face with a like-minded person who nods her head and gives you great ideas for your next article. Or gives you snippets of wisdom on how to attract more abundance into your life while having a genuine interest (instead of a scared look) while you’re sharing your passion.
So how can you meet other people just like you?
Here’s what I’ve noticed: the more open I become to talking about my beliefs, energy medicine & my intuitive abilities…the more I am attracting like-minded people into my life.
As Slade says, we lightworkers just find each other, no matter where we are. But I’d like to add: you’ve got to wear it with pride. Let your light shine, so to speak. Talk about it, even when people look at you like you’re the weirdest person they’ve ever encountered. (And it’ll happen, believe me!).
Don’t slink deeply into your chair and daydream about the friends you could have, if only…put yourself out there and let it be known who you are and what you believe.
Have faith that you’ll attract the right people into your life at the right time. And these right people will be awesome.
