The Hierophant: Healing the Lightworker Complex

The Hierophant - Healing the Lightworker - Tara Nikita

In this week’s podcast we explore:

The “Lightworker Complex” – the lightworker’s fears and wounds surrounding speaking and revealing what he or she knows. We look at these fears in the context of the lightworker’s soul history and incarnational past.

How the Hierophant in the Tarot can help the lightworker tap into his power and inner maverick, as well as heal his fears around communication.

{Free Gift} Hey I’m Awake: A practical guide for navigating your spiritual awakening

I’ve wanted for some time now to create something specially for those in the middle of a spiritual awakening, and this free e-guide has been a joy to make.

Hey: I’m Awake, isn’t fundamentally about energetic frequency patterns, DNA upgrades and activation, or dimensions and densities. It isn’t fundamentally about the planetary grid, intelligence fields, photons, gamma-rays, solar flares, the galactic core, timelines, or the human relationship with our extra-dimensional family. Since the flowering of consciousness is felt at the level of the individual, since the awakening of perception is actually a very “quotidian” sort of thing, and since it all has to do with the actual lives we live every day, this guide is more about how to navigate your individual awakening process with dignity, grace, and impeccable clarity.

Discover in Hey, I’m Awake:

How to gracefully deal with people around you who may not be “on board” with your spiritual awakening.

How to work with your physical body to more effectively manage the energies and information you are integrating.

What relationship changes and disruptions mean, and how to navigate them with a little know-how and savvy.

Going Beyond Normal

"Going Beyond Normal", from the Sacred Rebels Oracle, published by Blue Angel.

“Going Beyond Normal”, from the Sacred Rebels Oracle, published by Blue Angel.

Let’s face it. Spiritual awakening can be extremely perplexing. (I have a term for it: “Neptunian confusion”). You don’t know what’s really happening to you. You think you know, but there’s always more going on. I’ve wanted to talk about the idea of “going beyond normal” for a long time – specifically how the lightworker becomes confused because he or she doesn’t really understand the implications of stepping into a new vibrational dispensation. The lightworker realizes conceptually that she’s a little different from a lot of other people, but coping with the corollaries of this difference is another kettle of fish…

The fundamental issue is this: the lightworker’s conscious mind doesn’t really comprehend the extent to which his or her energy has altered, so he or she keeps looking toward the familiar, and is perplexed when familiar ways of doing things no longer yield the same results, or fail to work in the way they used to.

What Coming Out Of The Lightworker Closet Really Means (The No Bullshit Version)

Coming Out of the Lightworker Closet 1 - Tara Nikita


I, like many of you reading this, have been an “undercover lightworker” for most my life. I had always been attracted to metaphysical things. By the time I was 11 I took up studying astrology (like, seriously). And, during the course of my teens and approaching my twenties, I read copious amounts of literature on past lives, other planets, the soul’s journey. My thirst for this kind of stuff was insatiable. My grandparents were Anglicans, and, as a child, I would accompany my grandmother to church when I’d spend time with her during my summer holidays. My mother, though a lover of Anglican hymns, wasn’t generally too fussed about church or religion. She was more interested in how pretty the stained glass in churches looked. I suppose she had her own private spirituality that had more to do with enjoying her garden. My stepdad was an odd mix of venturing to explore more eastern meditative practices while at the same time uncomfortable with anything too “woo- woo.”

Lightworker Resource Guide

Lightworker Resource Guide - Tara Nikita

I decided to put together a collection of some of my favourite content – content that has absolutely enriched my journey, and expanded my mind and my soul. I’m calling it a Lightworker Resource Guide because these resources resonate in the hearts and the minds of those who intuitively understand their roles as beings of light here to do the work to anchor a loving and aware quality of consciousness in their lives, and thus contribute this energy to the collective. The resources here speak to those who understand that their ‘work’ involves anchoring more of their expansive multidimensional selves into the here and now.

The Tarot of Spiritual Awakening and Lightwork

This topic is really very dear to my heart. I came to Tarot through my own spiritual awakening – I had myself received the deep healing and expansion of perspective that the Tarot helped provide. This brings up something I feel is critical for a truly effective and meaningful Tarot praxis: practitioners of Tarot greatly enrich their own relationship with their healing tool when they experience it first-hand, as “seekers”.

Tarot helped me to understand my own spiritual awakening. My work with the Tarot is an upshot of my own healing process. My work is about helping people to understand, with Tarot, the very confusing and challenging periods of spiritual awakening and initiation into lightwork.

The archetypes of the Tarot speak to universal experiences of spiritual awakening; experiences that are common amongst the collective of lightworkers. From my experience, what lightworkers and those undergoing a spiritual awakening really need for healing is context.

What follows is a short guide. With just a few of the archetypes which spoke most to me in the moment, and which speak to my clients time and time again, I explore how they can help us in coming to terms with the process of individual awakening and spiritual expansion.

Lightworker Q&A (part 2)

lightworker QA

Last week, in part 1 of the Lightworker Q&A, I offered a framework to understand the term ‘lightworker’ and I discussed whether lightworkers are “chosen” (of course not, read to find out why). I offered perspectives on whether lightworkers should spread their message (yes and no), the role of extra-terrestrials and starseeds, the phenomenon of channeling, and the particular advantage of having such a wide variety of channeled material.

This week I wrap the Q&A up. Once again, these are my own perspectives for you to consider and play with in your mind, offered in the spirit of contribution to the wider conversation of consciousness…

Lightworker Q&A


I took a nice refreshing break from client consultations and readings because some of my family from New York came to visit for their holiday. It was really great catching up with my relatives. When we got to chatting, my aunt asked me what I had recently been reading. In explaining what books I had my nose in, I briefly mentioned the term ‘lightworker’. She asked me to explain the term, as she had never heard it before. I did (rather briefly). Mind you, this branch of my family is quite religious, and have political beliefs and concepts about what it is to be human that I do not personally subscribe to (in the least!). But we have good, sane discussions, and to me it is important to be able to do that. Throughout the time they spent with me, I kept on thinking about something that the P’s have asked us to affirm:
