Our Best Jobs For Lightworkers List:
It is no accident that this is number one on our best jobs for lightworkers list. Yes we know, this may appear biased since this is a website about going to nursing school, and working as a nurse. However, there is little debate that nursing is an extremely important job, and we need more nurses. There is a critical nursing shortage in the US.
Nurses are a great space for lightworkers to work in because you will be working with those who need the most help in the community. Also, it is never too late to go into nursing. You don’t need to start in your twenties. I know nurses who have started in their 40’s and 50’s etc. Read here on how to become a nurse.
Nursing jobs pay incredibly well, so you will be financially stable, and in most positions, you will have four days off a week to rest, and reinvest time and meditation into yourself.

4. Alcohol and Drug Counselor
Having personally worked in a psychiatric hospital myself, I can tell you that addiction does not discriminate.
After working in this type of environment, I learned very quickly that alcohol and drug addiction counselors are some of my favorite people on Earth.
They have a lot of education and expertise, but they are also equipped with compassion like I have never seen in most careers.
This is, in my opinion, one of the absolute best jobs for lightworkers. People who have been hurt by the addiction, oftentimes, do not have many positive people in their personal lives anymore.

Therefore, if you are not independently wealthy I suggest getting a job that pays the bills, and then working on your blog in your spare time.
The internet is full of generic information. Lightworkers should get more into blogging, and writing in general so that we can fill the interwebs with our positive thoughts and genuine experiences. If there is something that media is lacking, it is warm and genuine content.

Many new employees do not feel valued or taken care of in that onboarding process. As a lightworker working in human resources, you will be able to easier put yourself and empathize with those in that position.
Working in human resources, you will also be the person who employees come to for help. If they are experiencing harassment, or discrimination, in any way, you would be the person they come to. This is definitely a job for a lightworker.

If you love to cook, and love to share your food with others, this could be a great path for a light worker. When you go to a restaurant, can you tell which restaurants really care about what they are serving you? There is nothing more special to me when I am eating out than an involved restaurant owner who talks to their customers and who genuinely cares about what they serve to us.
Being a business owner has its challenges, but it can also be incredibly rewarding. Not just monetarily, but also spiritually. It would be a lot of hard work to get this up and running from scratch, but lightworkers are resilient. Lightworkers are good with people and would have a good chance at getting an investor as well.

17. Marketing Manager
This might be a surprising addition to our list of best jobs for lightworkers, but here is why. There are a lot of classless and sleazy marketers out there, but marketing is not inherently bad. When someone, or a company, has a product that could truly, and genuinely improve people’s lives, they need a great marketing team to get their message across.
This is where a lightworker, working in marketing, can shine. It would be a great thing for humanity if lightworkers flooded this space. Lightworkers love people, and they want to help people. So as long as you work for a company that does not compromise on your values, you can really shine and help the world in this space.
Marketing job examples:
- Social media management
- Brand management
- Content marketing
- Public Relations
- Search Engine Optimization Specialist
- Advertising Coordinator
The average salary for a marketing manager: $112K

Why it can be hard for lightworkers to decide what to do for work.
Lightworkers know that everything they decide to do in life is a big deal. Work is an important decision because you will spend a lot of your time in that environment, and lightworkers deeply understand this.
That is why this is such a hard decision for so many.
It is important to know that just because you are a lightworker, does not mean you have to be perfect. Sometimes work just needs to be a practical decision.
You should also never chase after the dollar signs alone because money motivation almost never lasts for most lightworkers.
For a lightworker, even if you make 1 million dollars a year, if you are not fulfilled in what you are doing, that money still won’t be enough.
If you want to learn more about lightworkers:
And if you are still currently struggling with figuring out your life purpose, this is the best book out there to learn about lightworkers and why we came to Earth in the first place, by Dolores Cannon.
Top-Rated Book For Lightworkers To Make A Breakthrough
Brief Synopsis on Amazon: “Dolores Cannon, through her hypnosis work has discovered three waves of these volunteers. Some have come direct from the “Source” and have never lived in any type of physical body before. Others have lived as space beings on other planets or other dimensions. Because all memory is erased upon entry to the Earth dimension, they do not remember their assignment. Thus these beautiful souls have a difficult time adjusting to our chaotic world. These souls have a vital role to play as they help all of the rest of us ascend to the New Earth.”
