THE 3 FEMININE CORE WOUNDS

What do these titles spark in you: whore, bitch and witch? Has someone ever called you like that with a negative connotation?

Back in the days, Mary Magdalene was found guilty of all of them. She was called a prostitute for being trained in sexual alchemy and practicing sacred sexuality. She was called a bitch and to be possessed by demons because she looked after herself and had boundaries. She was called a witch because she trusted her intuition.

Still today, these are the 3 main core wounds of us women.

THE WHORE: We are taught that our worth, dignity and social desirability depend on our non-expressed sexual potential which paralyzes and suppresses us, when we live our life to the fullest and leads us to feelings of shame, lack of self-love, dependencies, addictions and fear of lack.

THE BITCH: We are taught that we are defined by the fulfillment of other people’s expectations. Whereas, when we stand up for our needs, we are called a bitch. Us not taking care of and meeting our needs leads us to self-sabotage, self-hatred, self-harm, abusive relationships and competitive behaviour.

THE WITCH: In the patriarchy, sameness connotes survivability. Otherness is perceived as threatening. When we are in touch with our intuition and live out our uniqueness, we are called to be strange. This leads to inauthenticity in our self-expression, fear of being seen, isolation, feelings of separation and being the “black sheep”.
