What Is Wounded Feminine Energy? This is a question that many women who are trying to reconnect with their natural state of being are asking these days.
Wounded feminine energy is a term used to describe the emotional trauma that often accompanies womanhood. Your body has an energetic system that allows you to receive information from the Universe using your five senses.
When we as women, are disconnected from the source of these energies, and when we do not honor our bodies, we create wounds in our Energies. Wounding ourselves through negative behaviors only leads to more wounding.
Learn how wounded feminine energy is affecting your life and how to use this knowledge to become more powerful in your divine femininity.
Further Defining Wounded Feminine Energy
A woman who is not in touch with her authentic self, and who has been hurt by others often behaves in ways that are not in line with her true nature. This can manifest as the following;
- a need to be constantly in control
- a tendency to over-function
- a reluctance to ask for help
These wounds likely originated in her childhood from an absent father or guilting mother. Sometimes, she saw her mother take on masculine roles to fill in for her father. As a result, she may have unconsciously decided that being strong and competent was the only way to be loved and accepted.
The Dangers of Wounded Feminine Energy
When we are out of alignment with our authentic selves, we often put up walls to protect ourselves from getting hurt again. Unfortunately, these walls also prevent us from experiencing the joys of life or letting the right people in.
In addition, when we are out of alignment with our authentic selves, we often attract people and situations that are not in our best interests. This is because we are energetically sending out a message that we are open to being hurt.
Despite not wanting these negative things, our energy aligns with them so we draw more of the same into our lives.
Women who were neglected as girls, tend to grow up with significant wounds to their divine femininity.
They may overcompensate by moving into their masculine energy in an effort to feel like they’re regaining power. On the other hand, they may end up in relationships with weak men that they know they can manipulate and control in some way.
Wounded feminine energy (modernly termed as “toxic femininity”) is the negative counterpart of wounded (toxic) masculine energy.
It can cause a range of symptoms including;
- relationship problems
The good news is that, just like with wounded masculine energy, it is possible to heal our wounds and restore balance.
To heal, you need to first identify it and then address your blocks to accessing your divine feminine energy.
Signs You Have Wounded Feminine Energy
As mentioned above, you can look at the symptoms and what they manifest to determine if you have wounded feminine energy.
Anxiety, overthinking, resentment, feeling the need to bear heavy loads, needing to be in control, not asking for help, being strong all the time.
Society will have us believe that these things are okay and that as gender identity is such a taboo subject, we should separate ourselves from our natural state.
When we do not have a clear understanding of the divine feminine, it is easy to fall into these traps. Energy is entirely natural and has nothing to do with any man-made constructs, rather it is biological.
And while men and women possess both energies, one is not better than the other. However, it is in our nature as women who want to reconnect with our authentic selves, to want to heal our wounds, and access our divine feminine energy.
If you are reading this, then I am sure you already know this, and you are well on your way to being empowered in your womanhood and disregarding all who seek to erase and pretend our biology isn’t real.
How to Heal Your Wounded Feminine Energy: The 7 Step Process
There is no one-size-fits-all answer to the healing process, as the best way to heal your wounded energy will vary depending on your individual circumstances or trauma.
However, we have compiled a list of some common practices that have helped women heal and bring about desired changes in their lives.
Some tips to help you heal your feminine energy include;
1. Understand the Source of Your Wounds
First, it is important to understand the source of your wounds. This can be done by:
- talking to a therapist
- doing some self-reflection
Once you know where your wounds came from, you can begin to address them and start the healing process.
2. Allow Yourself to Feel the Wound
Once you know the source of the wound, it is okay to sit with it for a while and really feel the pain. This can be incredibly difficult, but it is necessary in order to begin the healing process.
3. Practice Self-Compassion
Once you have allowed yourself to feel the wound, it is important to start being kinder to yourself. This includes practices such as self-compassion meditation, affirmations, and gentle yoga
4. Work Through Your Wounds
In the same way that you determined the source of it, those same methods can help you to work through it.
This can be done with the help of a therapist, support groups, or self-help books and articles.
5. Use Affirmations to Heal the Wound

6. Connect with Your Intuition for Guidance
Women’s intuition is a real thing; don’t run from it – run to it. While in a meditative state, seek to connect with the femininity of your ancestors for guidance. Talk to them, ask them to help you heal, and to give you the strength to move forward.
A miraculous thing will happen; you will start to see and feel patterns in your life, and you will begin to understand the lessons that you need to learn in order to move forward.
It is all already within you but you have been shutting it out all your life.
7. Form Support Groups with Other Women
One of the best ways to heal is by sharing your story with other women. When we are able to share our experiences and feelings, it helps us to feel seen, heard, understood, and supported.
It can be incredibly healing to form a support group with other women who are also working on their own healing journeys. This could be done in person or online.
The most important thing is that the group consists of women you feel a sense of trust and alignment.
8. Create a Ritual for Healing
Creating a ritual for healing can be incredibly helpful in bringing about change. This could involve anything from lighting candles to writing out your feelings in a journal. The most important thing is that it is meaningful and personal to you.
9. Actively Work on Healing Your Relationships
This is a tough one for many people as it requires a lot of vulnerability. However, in order to heal our feminine energy, we need to work on healing our relationships.
This means being honest with ourselves and others about what we need and want, setting boundaries, and communicating effectively.
You really have to stand in your truth with this one, and it can be scary, but the rewards are worth it.
10. Release Negative Emotions and Trauma
A book that was recommended to me and that I have since recommended to many women is You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay.
In this book, Louise discusses how our thoughts and emotions create our reality. She also provides a step-by-step guide on how to release negative emotions and trauma that are holding us back from achieving our goals and living our best life.
11. Remember That You Are Enough
Finally, remember that you are enough. You should accept yourself wholly as enough doesn’t mean perfect. Nobody is perfect, and perfection is not the goal – self-love is.
