Does a Lightworker need to pay to take a course and be able to do work?

I've been through a major spiritual awakening and ascension process that made me realise I am a lightworker and I feel deeply inspired and moved to help others awakening and find their own truth, also working with energy alignment.

Although I have my own business in another field that pays my bills, I feel I want to move on to work with people in that spiritual path.

So I've found a lady that does that type of work, and she offers courses that are accredited for people that want to work in energy alignment. It is a course of almost one year and after that you'll be accredited and able to work.

It all sounded good but the thing is, she charges over $5000 for the course (that you can pay in monthly installments). I mean, that's more than a post-graduate degree at a University!

It's not about the money in itself, but about the fact that I think she's being abusive. People will be able to work independently afterwards without giving her any comission, but would still have her program brand on their websites, so will be promoting her.

She said she only wants the right people to work with her, the ones that feel it's right, etc. But I feel she only wants the ones that can pay and that's it.

And also, I feel no one should have to pay that amount of money to be able to do something that comes naturally to them and is part of their soul purpose!

I'm ok with taking a course on the subject with someone that is doing that work and pay for it, but I think this lady is just trying to take advantage.

What do you think about this?

It seems to me that this person is definitely trying to take advantage by preying on people who sincerely wish to be able to help others. I find it abhorrent.

I agree with what Fae Rei said. I hope you shop around.

There is regulation and licensing to think about - you need to know the laws that relate to the type of work you want to do and make sure you have the certifications you need so you don't get into trouble with the law.

Also people you help would expect professionalism, competency and following a code of ethics in practice.

To do reiki the actual attunement can't be measured by a course instructor. Either your heart is open and you can feel energy or if not, you're not ready - no matter how many courses you've taken. There are protocols you need to learn but the attunement comes from Spirit not a person.

Hello' olhosdeamendoa"



Now, in looking into this individual selling that Lightworker course.....it is clear that....this individual has created this Lightworker program or course, in order to "Promote self".

And that, it appears that she is focused clearly on her own self-importance and goals and not truly attuned to the Light, the Divine Light of Creator.

In fact, she appears to be quite troubled and conflicted herself.

Now, a good method that can be suggested here, in order to locate and identify a true Lightworker or honest supporter of Lightworkers is.....

to ask what their 'values' are, and also what is their 'Intent' in promoting the courses or classes you seek. And then. to FEEL whether or not this is true, for you.

As Spirit has offered many, many guidelines, such as....."There are two major types of spiritual beings in this reality, those of STS ( Service To Self ) and those of STO (Service To Others).

Therefore, I would ask you, How can you expect to experience a good, knowledgeable, caring, loving, insightful and supportive teacher/mentor if that mentor is firmly grounded in STS mentality?

As it is clear that this individual is of an STS nature, currently. And therefore, one needs to ask oneself..."Does this mentor have my best interests in hand or is she or he merely interested in their own personal gains.

Now, there is nothing right or wrong about wanting to do what she is doing, since the Law of Freewill is what we are all here for, and she will attract those individuals who ARE looking for what she promotes, but, is this what YOU are searching for, that is the question.

A good method to find those few honest and truly devoted mentors or guides in life is to first clarify what YOU want in the relationship.

And then to inquire as to that mentor's INTENT.....PURPOSE.....METHODOLOGIES and......VALUES.

As, asking about physical issues like.....years of experience or degrees or credentials such as.....certificates of completion of a weekend course, and now you are a MASTER, etc. are pointless, as this type of work does not fall under the common social matrix and rules that we who live on this planet have come to know and follow.

The truest nature of whether an individual is right for you....is felt, is experienced, in the heart and in this way, one cannot be fooled into believing that this mentor is something more than they claim to be.

Trust in your intuition, in your vibrational resonance that you experience when you connect with another individual.

And remember, those so called professional psychics or spiritual teachers who 'promote themselves as some kind of super human or 'Amazing or Infallible" person...are often promoting their own egos and dramas, which again, is fine, as they are creating 'their' reality as they see fit.

But, that does not mean that those who seek truth or honesty should simply trust that all individuals who promote spirituality or psychic interpretations can be trusted. For I have met many, many who are content to promote their egos and make a buck on it in the process.

Again, it is up to you and what you are seeking...is it 'your' truth..or another individuals' truth?

As all truth is....."Subjective". There is no universal truth.

And, to offer you a clear guideline for managing truth is that......"Truth is always relevant to the frame of reference".

Therefore, if you are confused and not understanding another individuals' truth, then it is often, in general, but not always, because you or the other individual is..."Projecting" and not actually focused IN the conversation or 'connecting'. Therefore, there are two, not one, perceptions or conversations happening.

They are merely lost in their own "Projections" of ego and are unavailable, in that moment, to perceive clearly the conversation.

Seek out this mentor or teacher or course like you would with any favorite food, for example, examining, exploring and analyzing..."What foods do I feel are most delicious or beneficial for me this day"?

You trust what you feel in the moment, so, trust what you feel when you are attempting to identify that potential Light worker class and if you do not 'resonate' with any particular class or course, it is often because you are either not ready yet for that experience or....that experience does not have your best interests in hand and therefore, will not benefit you in what has been promoted or expressed.


Trust your intuition. Trust SELF!


As 'this' is the foundation of being a Light worker....trust, selflessness, kindness, love, support....and following the pathway of the Divine Light.



I wish you well in your explorations.





In Light & Harmony TAOIST

What do you think about this?

the desire to do the work is the only accreditation that is required.
being true to yourself, what you feel drawn to do, is the credential
of import. prepare yourself in the manners that feel appropriate.
there is an idea that:
to feel drawn to the work is to have been prepared ahead of time!
(you may have incarnated here at this moment in time because
you are already a master of lightwork... this is the time/place
that you are needed)

There's your answer, you think it's too much. But why is this a question? She is free to charge for her business, just as you charge others for the business you provide for them. It's a double standard to suggest otherwise. Labeling something as "spiritual" or "lightworker" doesn't mean it should be provided free of charge.

a debt driven society is unaligned with abundance philosophy.
"i can help, but it'll cost you"
why does it cost?
"because i need to pay my bills/creditors"
the circle of neediness is driven by want and need.

The work is admirable but to be an effective "Light Worker" one needs in my opinion to have done the real inner work first.

From there you are free to do as you choose. I do think 5K is steep for a course but I don't know the person or context.

Thats like asking a pig if bacon is delicious, of course not! As long as your intent is positive then you have the means of being a light worker.

Olhosdeamendoa, I love your nickname! It means almond eyes in my native language

Yes, I was wondering the same thing the other day. I am really into reiki but here courses are so expensive I don't even have that money. I was wondering if maybe we could start to practice it and feel it ourselves first before moving on and paying someone to "teach" us?
That would be good to have some opinions about that. I want to start ASAP but I don't have the money at all.
