The Past Lives of Lightworkers and How to Heal Them

“We are always connected to all the lifetimes that we have lived and will live. They are part of our path, our nature, and our heritage.”~ Mira Kelley

Spiritually speaking, we are living in the most exciting and transformative times of humanity’s evolution. What makes this time in history so different than past years is that we are undergoing an ascension as a planet, and individually a larger than ever portion of the population is beginning to awaken to who we truly are.

This process of awakening to our true nature is what many of us have spent lifetimes preparing for, it is the climax of a soul’s journey.

Because to awaken in consciousness is the “ultimate” lifetime that changes our trajectory as an energetic entity experiencing this dimension, one that a soul has spent hundreds or even thousands of lifetimes preparing for, it should come as no surprise that those who are undergoing an awakening are among the “oldest” souls on the planet.

An old soul refers not to age in linear years but rather experience of lifetimes. It is important to realize that if you are one of the humans who is experiencing a spiritual awakening in this lifetime, this has not happened by accident, you were chosen for this experience due to your readiness from an evolutionary standpoint.

One of the ways in which we prepared to be in the position we are in at this particular moment in history was to play the role of characters who were in tune to spiritual realities or metaphysics in our past lifetimes.

It should come as no surprise that many of these character archetypes are common among those of us awakening today, however, what may be surprising is the way in which these past lifetimes are still affecting our reality in this lifetime.

Understanding some of the ways in which spirituality played a role in our past lives, we are able to get clarity on possible reasons why we feel the way we feel in this one, and also are able to initiate healing of any unhealed traumas that may still be lingering in our subconscious mind and cellular body.

Memories of a Soul and the Subconscious Mind

“You cannot find your soul with your mind, you must use your heart. You must know what you are feeling, if you do not know what you are feeling you will create unconsciously. If you are unconscious of an aspect of yourself; if it operates outside of your field of awareness, that aspect has power over you.” ~ Gary Zukov

To understand how the nature of our past lifetimes can have an impact on our lives in this now moment, we must first understand how the subconscious mind links to our soul memories.

If we think of a soul’s journey as a combination of lifetimes in which a soul comes out of the higher dimensions of reality into a dimension in which a veil of forgetfulness is placed upon it, only to find it’s way out of this forgetfulness, we can see that a soul’s evolution in this dimension is not limited to the lifetime in which you find yourself in currently.

Technically, we exist simultaneously in all the lifetimes we have lived out, and any fears, emotional blocks, limiting beliefs, or traumas that have gone unhealed in the past will continue to live in our subconscious mind until made conscious and healed.

There are many ways to do this including going to a past life regression healer, or as stated in the above quote, paying attention to how we feel.

Below are a list explaining the nature of some of the common past lives of lightworkers along with helpful tools to help us heal any leftover emotional debris from these lifetimes.

The Past Lives of Lightworkers


Most witches throughout history were feared as being pagan or doing the work of the “devil,” however many were in fact natural healers and in tune to higher wisdom. The way in which many witches died included being burned alive, tortured or imprisoned for their affiliation with unseen forces.

Because of the torture they faced if they were “found out” so to speak for practicing their craft, many began to hide this part of themselves, so as not to be discovered. If you have felt an unnatural fear of revealing the spiritual part of yourself to others, this may be a clue into a past lifetime as a witch.

Intentional meditation: As you go into a deep meditation ask your higher self to heal any fear or pain in your subconscious that resulted from being tortured, imprisoned or killed. Remind yourself you are now safe to awaken your spiritual abilities, and that you’ve made it out of that lifetime safely.

Medicine Man/Shaman

In some indigenous communities the person they went to for spiritual healing or to bridge the gap between the physical world and the spirit world was the local shaman or medicine man.

These spiritual healers often lived away from the immediate community in a life of solitary where they were able to be at one with nature and spirit in peace, and were only visited when someone was sick or afflicted with something.

If you have ever felt the need to isolate from others due to your spiritual process along with a fear of re-joining the world, or if you have a subconscious fear of attracting people who only are with you because they need healing, it may be due to a past life as a medicine man or shaman.

Intentional Meditation: In a deep meditation tell your subconscious mind or higher self that you no longer need to keep yourself isolated from the world. It is safe to re-join the world and you no longer require to attract those who are in suffering in order to feel “valuable,” or “purposeful.”

Monk or Religious Devotee

In many religious orders including one of a Buddhist Monk members are required to vows in order to confirm their devotion to the order. These vows include vows of silence, vows of poverty, and vows of chastity among others.

If you have ever felt a fear of speaking your truth, of owning your sexual drive or have associated wealth or abundance with something un-spiritual it may be due to a lifetime in which you took one of these vows.

Intentional meditation: In deep meditation remind your subconscious that you are safe to speak, and safe to be honest.

Also, that you are free to live abundantly and to express your sexuality from a place of love rather than fear, that you no longer are living with the constraints of these vows, and may they now be rendered null and void in your subconscious mind.

Ask that they be deleted on a quantum level out of the programming of your subconscious.

Thus started her spiritual journey. As time transpired, it became apparent to her that her talent for writing and communication would be how she could give back to humanity and help others who were also experiencing a spiritual awakening. Guided by love and service, she allows her body to be the vehicle by which the universe speaks to others through her writing.
