I created this FREE Video Series to connect with the key themes shared in my book Light is The New Black.
Grab yourself a cuppa and enjoy…
VIDEO 1: WHAT KIND OF LIGHTWORKER ARE YOU?
A Lightworker is anyone who devotes their life to being a bright light in the world. They understand that their actions (no matter how big or small) have the potential to raise the vibration of the planet. A Lightworker soul is awake, conscious that their presence matters and that they are part of something that is bigger than them.
Lightworkers are not just tie-dye wearing hippies and healers with dreads. Far from it. They are teachers and chefs, writers and singers, producers and cleaners, mothers and mediums. They’re at the country club and the nightclub, in the cafe and crèche, the boardroom and the art room.
A Lightworker is someone who makes a conscious decision to endeavour to answer the call of Source (light) over the call of the ego (fear).
There are two types of energy on this planet. Light and dark. Light energy is unlimited and comes from Source. It’s high vibrational, expansive and full of love. Dark energy is much more dense. It’s the manipulation, power struggle and fear. It sees us all as separate, rather than connected spiritual beings. It goes against the flow of The Universe.
Lightworkers turn their light on by following what lights them up and then effortlessly sharing that light with the world around them. They are in tune with the callings of their soul and act on its whispers regardless of fear. They do not need to convince anyone of anything, rather just be the light.
Through my soul readings and Work Your Light Mentoring I have discovered that most Lightworkers fit into two categories: Newly Awakened Lightworkers and Retro Lightworkers.
Newly Awakened Lightworkers tend to have a significant awakening experience spurred on by a life event. Once awakened it is hard to go back to sleep and there is a feeling that things can never be the same. Their consciousness has shifted and they may decide to answer the call to be of service. Newly awakened Lightworkers seem to be able to jump right in and make big life changes in response to answering the newly awakened call within them.
Retro Lightworkers come in knowing. They have been doing this work for lifetimes and as a result may find that they have considerable fear around stepping forward (due to a soul memory of persecution). They are likely to have always had a knowing that they were here for a reason, that there was work to do and a feeling that time is running out. Erecting a spiritual closet from a young age is common for this type of Lightworker and as a result, revealing to the world who they really are is a scary process for them.
While some Lightworkers alive right now incarnated with a conscious mission to be of service (and have been doing so for lifetimes), there are countless souls awakening to the call to be of service. Anyone who chooses to devote their lives to being a bright light in the world IS a Lightworker. There are no snobby spiritual tests to pass or assignments to hand in. The only requirement is a desire to connect with your own authentic light and a longing to serve their world. I call it working your light.
Just by reading this you are working your light. By following what you love, you are working your light. By choosing a higher thought when you find yourself in a bad mood, you are working your light. By encouraging someone instead of criticizing them you are working your light. By sharing your unique gifts you are working your light. By connecting to the unlimited supply of love in The Universe, you are working your light. By being true to yourself, you are working your light. By being kind and compassionate, you are working your light.
My definition of a Lightworker is: someone who wholeheartedly makes the decision to make the world a brighter place by them being in it. The more conscious we get, the higher our vibration and the more aligned to Source we become. The more conscious we are, the more we see how everything is connected and how we fit into a larger whole.
Many Lightworkers may find that as they raise their consciousness, they become more energetically sensitive, picking up other people’s feelings, energy and thoughts. You may find that you find it hard to watch the news or violent films. You may also find that old relationships that are built on manipulation, control and fear are starting to drop away as you are no longer an energetic match to them.
For some time now, we have been living in a largely unconscious state. In order for Mother Earth to survive we need a global awakening. This is awakening has already begun and I believe that you are one of souls who chose to lead the way.
Work Your Light:
So what kind of Lightworker are you? Are you newly awakened Lightworker who has answered the call to be of service and ready to step up? Or are you an old school retro Lightworker who came in knowing and maybe has spent a bit of time hanging out in a spiritual closet? Let me know in the comments below:
VIDEO 2: WHAT LIGHTS YOU UP?
We light up the world by following what lights us up. The things that light you up will be completely different from what light me up. There are no wrong paths, no whopping mistakes, no complete day by day life plan etched into stone by the big G.
We are here to share the unique gifts that we all possess. There is no big secret to uncover, no contract which says “you will do x, after that you will do y, and straight after that you will do z”. We don’t discover our soul calling, we uncover it by following the trail of things that light us up and then lose ourselves in the doing.
If you love smelling flowers, smell flowers. If you love writing, start writing. If you love organising events, put on a show. If you love making art, get out the pastels. If you love raw food, start chopping. If you love taking pictures, snap happy. If you love dancing to classical music with a beat, give me a high kick. Don’t feel like you can only do one thing. Give your multi-dimensional soul what it craves. Do them all.
Don’t do it for a reason or an end goal, do it because you love doing it. Follow what you love without knowing where it will lead. When you follow what you love, The Universe will pick up on your expanded feelings and send you more things to match your newly found expansion.
Through following the things that lit me up I discovered that I loved taking photos, making things beautiful, surrounding myself with nature and mostly sharing the whispers of my soul through writing. I wasn’t writing to tell someone anything, I was writing to feel connected with my soul. I gave myself permission to play with these things every single day (not because I wanted to create something in particular but just because I let myself play).
One day while walking in Holland Park I heard my soul whisper and wrote it down in my moleskin with my favourite black Sharpie. I then took a beautiful photo of me holding the notebook with my big turquoise ring in the shot some peonies in the background (it should be illegal how much I adore peonies). I then posted it onto instagram along with a bunch of words that came flowing through me. I wasn’t writing for someone else, I was writing for myself. I felt light, energised, expanded and such joy.
So I did it again the next day. And then the next. And then the next. Before I knew it I had stumbled upon what I now call #RebeccaThoughts that I post regularly on my social media and blog. Writing these is such a huge pleasure; I could do it for hours and hours on end. When I write them I go into a place where time does not exist, I lose myself and a higher presence steps in. Anyway, #RebeccaThoughts then turned into my free ‘Instant Guidance Oracle’ on my website. Over time, after showing up to this joyful practice every day, my own unique writing style started to emerge. And so I wrote every day, for ten minutes at first, then twenty, then thirty, then hours on end. I started getting paid to write channelled #RebeccaThoughts for other people.
Then as I continued to show up, they turned into chapters of Light Is The New Black. What started as a five-minute bit of play for the pure enjoyment of it is now a full time job. And it only emerged because I kept following what lit me up without being attached to the outcome. Start small and follow the invisible trail of the things you love, before you know it you will land smack bang in the middle of your calling.

VIDEO 3: YOUR SOUL IS ALWAYS CALLING YOU
You can never be too old to answer your calling and it can never be too late. For the truth of the matter is that your soul is always calling, it was calling yesterday, it is calling today and it will be calling next week.
Answering the callings of your soul isn’t a one-time act; it’s a constant conversation. It’s not actually about doing one big thing or finding one single answer to the great big question: “what is my purpose?” It’s doing hundreds and thousands of little things in a direction, one after the other. It’s through following each and every little call (a step here and a leap there) that we find ourselves living the life we are called to live. Once we find this higher calling it seems like it “just happened” but in reality it has been in the process of happening for ages. Your soul knows your path. Keep listening to and acting on the whispers each and every day. Before you know it you’ll be well on your way.
Your soul is always calling, gently pointing in the right direction, and subtly edging you closer towards the things that light you up. If you wait to find out exactly where your path is heading before you act, you will never experience the bliss of walking your path. if you wait until the intuitive hunches make sense before you act, the longer you will be waiting. The motto I live my life by is by saying “If it doesn’t make sense, you know it’s your intuition.” Carve out 10 minutes every day to tune and and listen to the callings of your soul. Be curious. Your soul is always calling, but in order to hear its callings you need to sit down and listen.
Work Your Light:
What is your soul calling you to do right now? It doesn’t have to make logical sense (the best intuitive hunches never do) and it might scare you a little (often our fears are the gatekeepers to our gifts). What’s your soul calling you to do? Let me know in the comment box below:
VIDEO 4: SIMPLE INTUITIVE DECISION MAKING TOOL
Every decision we make either takes us closer or further away from ourselves. Often it’s hard to tune into the subtle energy, but deep down everything is either a ‘yes’ or a ‘no.’ Feel good or feel not as good. Brightness or darkness. Avoidance or coming home. The more times you say YES to what lights you up, the more aligned your life will be. When our life is aligned we are in flow with the Universe and we are living the life that we were born to live.
Work Your Light
Think of a decision you are currently faced with and ask yourself the simple question: Which solution lights me up?
VIDEO 5: CORE FEARS
Our highest calling is often tightly nestled right behind our core fear. The higher your calling, the more fear you may have around it. Annoying but true!
When we step into our biggest, brightest, most expanded self, our core fear is always triggered. Core fears are triggered by a childhood experience, and our ego uses these experiences as evidence that we are separate and alone in this world.
You are not separate. You are not alone.
The ego then creates a script, which plays round and round in our head. By understanding what our ego’s script is telling us, we can stop the fear in its track and lessen the power it has over us.
- ‘I’m not good enough.’
- ‘I’m bad.’
- ‘I’m unworthy.’
- ‘I’m all alone.’
- ‘There’s something wrong with me.’
- ‘Everyone abandons me.’
- ‘I should be ashamed.’
- ‘I’m unlovable.’
- ‘I’m nothing.’
- ‘It’s not safe to be me.’
Which one do you relate to most? Can you track it back to a childhood experience? What’s the first time that you recall feeling like this? The more conscious we are, the less power our core fear and ego’s script has on us over time.
If you notice your fear coming up, it’s actually a good sign that you’re stretching yourself in the right direction. If you were playing it safe and ignoring your calling, the ego would have nothing to lose. As you step into your bigness and make the choice to expand your fears will raise their head.
Think of your fears as opportunities to expand, rather than things that are holding you back. If you look at your fears in this light then, as uncomfortable as it might feel, it’s actually a sign that you are on the right track.
My teachers always taught me, that if you’re not uncomfortable, you’re probably not growing. And the whole point of us being here is to grow. When fear comes up, give yourself a high five and say ‘YES’ to expansion.

VIDEO 6: STEPPING OUT OF THE SPIRITUAL CLOSET: SHARING YOUR SOUL’S VOICE
I’ve always known that I had a message to share. As if it was implanted in me since birth. But I spent a lot of my life in a spiritual closet holding back the boldness of what my soul yearned to share.
Recently on a trip back home to Australia my mum found a letter I had written to her when I was a teenager (I always found writing was the easiest way of expressing myself). In the letter I was trying to explain my connection with my friend Angela who was 30 years older than me, assuring to her that while it might seem odd now, one day soon it will all make sense.
If you have read Light Is The New Black, you will know what a significant part to my path my relationship with Angela was. But no matter how certain I was of my path or how long I knew it, the thing that stopped me the most is this unshakable fear around expressing it. Writing is one thing but stepping onto a stage is something completely different. This fear is the reason I went into a spiritual closet and stayed in there for so long.
When I finally gathered the courage to step out, express my soul’s voice and teach, it was bloody scary. I remember looking at quotes like Joan of Arc’s “I’m not afraid I was born to do this” and wondering if I would ever get to that point. Well, after several years of breathing through my uncomfortableness and over a decade of tapping, chanting, ritualising, praying, past life-ing, surrendering, affirmation-ising and writing my way through it, I am so happy to report that a couple of weeks ago I spoke on stage and had absolutely NO FEAR! NONE. NOTHING!!! WAAAAAAAHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Finally!!!!!
And instead of the fear, I felt utterly held, supported and in my power (like I do when I write).
Soul stories can continue for lifetimes. But shifts can happen in an instant. I know there are so many of you out there who relate to this fear of being seen or not being seen or sharing your soul’s voice, revealing your deepest truths, stepping into your biggness… So many of you who hold the soul memories of persecution for sharing your wisdom, being the healer, acting on your intuition, speaking out, allowing your inner power to be seen…
What I want you to know is this:
There has never been a safer time in history to share your soul’s voice than right now. And every time you share your soul’s voice, you not only make it easier for you, you also encourage someone else to do the same.
If you are in a spiritual closet right now or just holding back the bigness of your message due to fear, I pray that you will find the courage to breathe through the uncomfortableness and share what is inside of you. When one woman rises, she makes the path that much brighter for She.
