In 2013, I asked Archangel Michael, on An Hour with an Angel, a question that arose out of a discussion I’d just had.
A friend had asked me to write to more people than just lightworkers. I asked Archangel Michael to comment and he replied:
Archangel Michael: Does the conversation expand organically and naturally? Does the energy go out to the entire planet, those who want to hear and those who don’t want to hear? Yes, it does. But it begins with the lightworker community. That is what we have need of.
Steve Beckow: And I suppose then more and more people will join the lightworker community?
AAM: Exactly, until it is one family and one path. (1)
One family and one path. We’ll all be lightworkers, whatever else we also are.
That doesn’t mean that all of us are going to be the same. It doesn’t mean we can’t continue with our spiritual discipline because we’re lightworkers.
Like so much about this Ascension, things are now becoming additive. So “lightworker” is an additive to what we’re already doing, an additive that we’ll soon share with all the world.
What’s the difference between a seeker and a lightworker? A seeker is interested in personal enlightenment and all his or her efforts are bent towards it. Usually we call a seeker a lightholder. The true lightholder gives up every attachment (but not every thing) for enlightenment and approaches spiritual disciplines with strong determination.
A lightworker is interested in service to others and puts his or her own enlightenment second. Usually a lightworker was enlightened in other lifetimes, but doesn’t remember it. That’s implicit in so many lightworkers being incarnated angels – or “physical angels,” as Sheldan Nidle’s sources prefer to call us. (2) Angels are transcendental, which means “enlightened.”
“Lightholder” and “lightworker” are just different soul agreements. One is not better than the other and both are needed.
It can still be the case that enlightenment proves to be part of the Divine Plan for a lightworker. Perhaps they’re meant to model a particular state. Modelling bliss has been a challenging experience for me. Lots of skinny branches, wing-walking, and feeling way, way out there.
But whatever the form of the service in question, with a lightworker, the accent is not on his or her own enlightenment so much as on the service.
Long ago, my mother used to volunteer as an usherette at the newly-built Queen Elizabeth Theatre here in Vancouver. Such a fan of the theater was she that she was totally happy just being given a free seat to watch the show, in return for her many hours of service. That generosity of spirit has always been, in my view, characteristic of lightworkers.
We’re ushers, waiters, cooks and maitre d’s at the banquet of Ascension. Volunteers for now, but paid staff later. And we get to participate as appropriate to our service contracts. Yes, you can drink bliss on duty. Drink deep of that ambrosia.
The minute I say this, I can hear a dozen voices shouting, “What’s my contract? What’s my contract?” Simple. What do you love to do? That’s your contract. If you love it, do it.
What to model? Easy. Model love and bliss. Not all matters are complex. Or dramatic. It’s really very simple and easy when one is attached only to service.
Service to whom? I hear from way back there.
The Divine Mother. There’s no one else here or there, under or over, up or down to serve than the Divine Mother. She’s the One and Only, in a dress of form. And certainly the only One you and I will ever see. Her divine husband has nothing to say and doesn’t lift a finger to help her, as statues of Shakti and Shiva suggest (see below). (3) She’s the head honcho. He’s nowhere to be found. Jai Ma!
Archangel Michael, Archangel Gabrielle, Seraphim, Elohim, gods and goddesses, avatars and ascended masters – everyone joyfully serves the Mother.
I hear another voice from the back: You’re really talking about the bodhisattva vow, aren’t you?
I’m not talking about it, but the discussion is relevant. The bodhisattva takes a vow not to enter Nirvana, which is one of the higher dimensions (exact dimension would probably be disputed), until all beings have gone ahead. I think that vow is much more exalted than ours. Ours is a simple agreement to serve. As and where needed. With weekends off and benefits.
Soon our fiber as lightworkers will be tested when abundance hits. A tsunami of money. Will we be able to maintain our center, our balance? Will we remember what the money is for? That it’s the Mother’s sacred wealth to be distributed to her beloved children? That includes us, but it extends a lot further.
A lightworker takes on assignments like these. Not for personal gain, although some personal gain may come and isn’t a bad thing. In carrying out their assignment, lightworkers stay within limits and prefer the center, the middle, the balance point. It’s from the heart, the centerpoint that love flows outwards.
How do you know you’re succeeding as a lightworker? Simple again. If you’ve been telling the truth, you should experience greater and greater release from upsets. If you’ve been cleaning out your core issues, letting go of your conditioning, breathing love up, and sending it out to the world, you should be experiencing greater and greater levels of love and bliss.
These delicacies are not denied to lightworkers. We just set limits on our personal desires that others don’t, in the name of service.
What’s the reward for a lightworker?
I know! I know!
There is no other reward. Just say how much you want and in which account you’d like it sent to. This is the real Prosperity Program.
Try it once and you’ll never go back to drama and trauma. Ever-new, ever-fresh bliss. (4)
Bliss is the real reward of the lightworker.

Only the Mother has form and so she’s the only one we’ll ever see, hear, and talk to. Jai Ma! = Victory to the Divine Mother!
(4) Thank you to everyone who has written in saying they’ve popped through to bliss. More, more, more!
