Were you killed for being a Witch in a past life?

NO matter what your beliefs are around past lives, many women as they awaken start to experience flashbacks, fears and visions that make no sense. Women who have never even vaguely been interested in Wicca or Witchcraft start having ‘memories’ bubble up about meeting a messy end as a Witch.




As we shift from ego to soul are we tapping into a collective consciousness? A collective, energetic memory?

What I know for sure is I work with a lot of women who are having what I call the ‘Witch Wound’ now come to the surface.

It is holding them back. Keeping them frozen in time unable to move forward into their purpose.

In my FEMININE MYSTICS RISING facebook group we’ve been chatting a lot about this topic lately. It never ceases to amaze me, the extent of the shared experience.



The phrase I hear over and over again is this:

“I’m afraid that if I stick my head over the parapet and speak my truth, show myself, then I’ll be attacked or worse”



Many of my clients feel very sensitive around their neck and throat or have what feel like memories of being burned, drowned or strangled. They feel really uncomfortable even with the word ‘Witch’ but don’t know why. 

Tens of thousands of men and woman across Europe have been killed, accused of being Witches and/or contradicting the accepted church of the time. Whether they were actually using Witchcraft or not, many were killed simply for being intuitive, using herbs medicinally or for being free-thinkers. So when I speak of the ‘Witch Wound’ it isn’t the Hollywood and Halloween version of Witch I’m referring to.



The thing is, whether it is sourced in a past life or not, our grandmothers’ generation actually were attacked for trying to speak out and find their voice.

Women were killed when campaigning to get the vote. Right now women and girls are still being killed just because they want to be heard and to have an education. Not that long ago women who were passionate, free-spirited or navigating the rite of passage of menopause were hospitalised, often in a secure unit, and diagnosed with ‘Hysteria’. It’s not such a vague, ethereal thing after all. The Witch Wound or feminine wound is a highly rational response to real experiences that are still happening now as well as in the recent past.



In terms of our intuitive gifts, many women are still hiding in the ‘Spiritual Closet’, again for very good reason.

We live in a world that still does not wholly respect the feminine intuitive gifts. Symptoms of awakening and mystical transformation are often misdiagnosed as mental health issues and medicated, thus suppressing the awakening process. No wonder we’ve been afraid to talk openly about our gifts and experiences.


So in the face of all that, how as women are we supposed to rise anyway?



Healing the Witch Wound and stepping out of the Spiritual Closet is an ongoing process to stay aware of as you step up as a spiritual woman into your authentic feminine power. It really is the healing work of our time. The feminine wound runs deep.



Healing the feminine wounds and rising to SHINE depends on an inner alchemy of two things: COURAGE + SELFHOOD



Selfhood is self-care, self-love, learning how to manage your energy as an empathic and gifted woman, how to tap into your intuition and express your creativity and rise in your feminine power. And it is very different from the word ‘Selfish’.



When courage and selfhood meet, magic happens for a woman. It is the space where your deepest feminine aspect makes love with your inner masculine.



Lots of love,

WOMEN + WEALTH: Healing the Witch Wound

Also check out the work of the amazing Lisa Lister and her latest book Witch: Unleashed. Untamed. Unapologetic. which I believe speaks about the Witch Wound beautifully. I intentionally haven’t read it yet (I’m bursting to!) because I’m working on my own book and want to make sure I’m writing completely from my own experience, intuition and research.

  1. Ive been deeply wondering about past life situations lately. I have fibromyalgia and I read somewhere that many with this condition faced brutal deaths and were witchs, in wars, or adventureres of sorts and are old souls and have had many past lives. Ive always had dreams of A) watching everything blow up around me and also B) being set on fire, having all my hair burned off before my head set on fire, etc. In my explosive dreams, I somehow know what it feels like to be shot. I cant help but think that ive had more than one past life thaf ended brutally. One of being a witch, and one of being in some kind of war. And I know somewhere along the line (I believe the witch one cause it was a midieval themed … Image?) That I was a male who was prosecuted and grabbed by a group of men while I was simply writing in a book… Weird stuff. I wish I could actually remember clearly. That would be kind of cool but also helpful.

  2. Hi Kimberley,
    Wow. I did your witch wound healing first before looking at this page. When I felt in my body for the wound my hands went to my throat. I did the healing then read this page amazed to read the throat is often the site of wounding. I felt a lot of sadness reading this. Arising memories ? I have had trouble developing my spiritual gifts. Thank-you for this. I was guided here and will continue to heal the witch wound. Melissa xxx

  3. I woke up one day with red marks on my neck that run all across looks like a rope burn. No matter what I do it doesn’t go away. I have dreams of witches trying to kidnap me for some reason or strange men chasing me I’ve always been fascinated by the moon, storms and witchcraft but I turned Christian and don’t want to mess with that anymore but the more I try to run from the idea that I may have been a witch in my past life the more I get evidence I was. I have dreams of the future and know certain things will happen. I scare my husband with this but I can’t help it. I don’t know what to think about all this or do. I need to wear a scarf around my neck til I go to a doctor.
