One of the main reasons why I created Bøglund Lightworker Institute was to help Lightworkers avoid and heal from Lightworker Burnout.
Lightworker Burnout is very common amongst Lightworkers because we are natural givers. We give, and give, and give, and terrible at asking for anything in return. Lightworkers is some of the biggest people pleasers you’ll ever meet. Eventually, the scale will tip, and the Lightworker will burn out. There isn’t really any other way around it.
The Universal Law of Giving & Receiving.
Unless you are entirely new to my work, you know how much I’m emphasising the importance of the Law of Giving & Receiving. I’m willing to go so far and say the Law of Giving & Receiving is one of the most important Universal laws that exist… if not THE MOST important.
The Law of Giving & Receiving states there must be an equal balance between the giving and receiving of energy between two parties.
Translating into human language, the more you give to others, the more should you allow yourself to receive from others. The more you receive from others (even if you take it yourself), the more should you give to others.
If you take, and take, and take, and never give anything back, you will get greedy and egocentric, pushing people away from you.
If you give, and give, and give, and never get anything back, you’ll eventually run empty and eventually burnout.
Because of the universal Law of Free Will, it’s entirely up to you how you choose to balance out the energies. The absolute easiest way to balance out the energies is by paying for the products and services you receive and accept payment for the products and services you offer yourself. Money is an exchange-energy, nothing else.
You Can Be a Lightworker and Say “No!”
One thing you won’t hear a Lightworker say very often is “No!” Lightworkers are terrible at saying no because it’s in our nature to help people out. The happier people around us are, the happier we are.
One of the personal traits for Lightworkers is the habit of view others as our personal fix-up project. While the intention is sweet and kind, it’s usually an extremely unhealthy habit. Either the person gets annoyed with you and wants you to back off (which is the best reaction). Or the person sees it as an opportunity to practice their victimhood, and it turns into a one-sided relationship where you’re doing all the giving and gets nada in return. Those people can suck you dry for energy, which would make you burnout.
Lightworker Burnout Can Make You Really Sick.
Lightworker Burnout is really serious.
When a Lightworker burns out, there is nothing more to give.
The Lightworker Burnout comes across as:
- Anxiety Attacks
- Heart Problems
- Breathing Problems
- Nonstop fatigue
- Lack of sexual appetite
- Lack of creativity
- Lack of motivation
- Dark Nights of the Soul
- Weakened immune system.
The positive thing is we can avoid the Lightworker Burnout if we make sure we don’t burn out in the first place. In other words, make sure you receive something in return to balance out the energies every time you give, learn to say “no” and set healthy boundaries!
