Most of the people who find this website will have already heard of Lightworkers and be familiar with the concept of Lightworking. Lightwarriors are a type of Lightworker.
Lightworkers in general work (as the name implies) to bring the Light to earth. Typical Lightworker callings include healing, teaching and guiding, stewardship of the earth, and other positive work. Lightwarriors may be all of those things, but what makes Lightwarriors different is the willingness to employ force in defense of others.
Lightwarriors are protectors and guardians. We often take an active role, preferring to put our own personal energy towards defense and seeking the truth. We do not, as some believe, revel in violence. But we certainly enjoy the opportunity to use our skills and abilities in defense of truth, justice, and the Light. Lightwarriors are willing to step in, to put themselves as a wall between those who would live peacefully in the light, and those who would destroy dwellers in the light.
Among the Lightworker community, the Lightwarriors are often the ones who discuss all sides of an issue, which sometimes makes them very unpopular with other Lightworkers as they are perceived as a voice of dissent. This is our job - not to dissent, necessarily, but to see all sides of the equation. We're balancers, and defenders. Sometimes this means we have to play devil's advocate and say things other people don't like.
As a group, we've faced a great deal of misunderstanding by our fellow Lightworkers for being different and having a different focus. But we would say to those Lightworkers - we need you, and you need us. We're two sides of the same coin, and we're in this together. We've got your backs. Anyone who wants to get to you is going to have to go through us.
We are here to help just as any other Lightworker
Being a Lightwarrior on Earth has sometimes been an alienating and lonely thing. I know from my own personal experiences and the experiences of other incarnated Lightwarriors I have spoken with that many of us have faced criticism and ostracization from the Lightworker community. Some Lightworkers make the assumption that because we are warriors that we are violence-seeking warhawks; these individuals are often open in their insistence that Lightwarriors 'couldn't possibly be Lightworkers'. This stance is deeply painful to Lightwarriors.
We are not trigger-happy warmongers frothing at the mouth and jumping at the chance to kill or hurt. Lightwarriors almost universally value peace deeply and prefer peaceful methods of conflict resolution. However, we also recognize that not all issues can be resolved peacefully - particularly when there is an aggressor that is not of the light and not interested in discussion or peace. In those cases, the only option is defense.
Who would you rather have do that defense? Someone who was born for it and who views it as a natural exercising of their inborn skills, or someone who abhors that duty and would seek any way to avoid it? Lightwarriors exist so that you don't have to make that choice - we will step forward and ensure that those who seek peace are free to live in peace.
Yes, we are good at what we do. That doesn't make us evil, or exclude us as Lightworkers. Consider that there are plenty of people who do martial arts for their own pleasure and health, and for the joy of those things; there are people who own bows and shoot paper for the sheer fun of it and because they are good at it; there are strategists who play games that make use of their skills and revel in them - having these skills or the capacity to develop these skills doesn't mean someone is a bad person. What it means is that the cosmos provides. People who enjoy these things and who are good at these things will be much better able to step in when these skills are needed, and it won't be a torment for them to do so.
