As a rule, I've never been the most comfortable with anything too New Age, and I've always been skeptical about the idea of "lightworkers"; however, that all changed when I came across Rebecca Campbell. Her vibrant energy is infectious and uplifting, and I adore her practical advice for high-vibe spirituality. One of my favorite pick-me-ups is her free Instant Guidance online oracle, which is perfect for a little heavenly inspiration if you're feeling blue.
I'm honored to be hosting her here for Cosmic Chat on the eve of her first book launch! Sit down, stay for a spell, and join us as we talk about Light is the New Black, spiritual closets, and more.
Virgo sun, Aries moon, Scorpio rising
Before we start and for those that might be new to your work, can you tell us a little bit about your experience with astrology and the sacred arts?
I recently had my starts done with Tali from The AstroTwins which was a really cool experience! I’d always known I was a Virgo with an Aries moon but that was about as far as I had gone with astrology. It was so cool because it confirmed the things I had discovered about myself through doing Akashic Record Soul Readings and Numerology… I freaking LOVE that the same soul defining characteristics were mirrored in the stars. Everything really is connected, there are so many ways in… I love that so much!
As a lightworker, I’m sure it’s no surprise that you have Venus, the brightest star in the sky, right on top of your ascendant! What does being a lightworker mean to 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).
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.
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.
Through my Work Your Light Mentoring I have discovered that most Lightworkers fit into two categories: Newly Awakened Lightworkers and Retro Lightworkers. Here’s a vid I created about that.
With water signs Scorpio and Cancer strong in your chart (Author’s note: they’re her rising and midheaven, respectively), you naturally feel your way through life. What advice do you have for fellow intuitives, empaths, and mystics?
That your sensitivity is actually your superpower. You are not alone in what you are feeling. You will find your people by sharing your soul’s voice. When you share your soul’s voice you harmonise the planet with your presence. The Dalai Lama said that "the world will be saved by the western woman". I believe it is through healing ourselves and standing up for what we believe in that will change the planet. And that starts by healing and honoring ourselves, because without doing that we are no use to anyone.
You have revolutionary Uranus in close quarters with Lilith, the zodiac’s sacred feminine rabble-rouser. What one part of today’s spirituality would you like shake up, and why?
The fear of speaking out and hanging out in spiritual closets for fear of people seeing them as weird. I’d also like to shake up the belief that we can use spirituality to avoid pain. Life is one big learning experience, we are here to grow as souls. Just because you are going through a tough time doesn’t mean you are not spiritual. It’s not unspiritual to get angry/hurt/actually feel what is happening through our experience, in fact, often I believe it can be the most spiritual things we can do.
Good news! Lucky Jupiter and Venus are hovering over your Mars and lighting up your career house for most of 2015. What part of your work do you most want to expand and love up this year?
I’d love for my new book Light Is The New Black to find its ways to as many people’s hands as called for. I’ve got plans to create some juicy online courses and get starting on my new book! But first, book tour!
Do the stars play a part in your spiritual practice? If so, how?
Well, I believe that many of us Lightworker souls have actually incarnated on different planets aside from this one so they come up a bit in my sessions and when I’m leading mediation. I also work with the Akashic Records which I visualize travelling through the Milky Way to get to in my mind's eye. I’m beginning to get more involved in the moon at the moment to really step into the power of my feminine. There is so much to learn, sometimes I feel like I could spend a whole life just learning one single topic. Maybe that’s why they call it earth school ;)
