Hey Empaths and Intuitives, It is ‘Witchy Wednesday’ here on Angelorum… How about some magic with a Tarot ritual that honours the ancestors and heals your family’s bloodline?
The Bloodline Healing Tarot Ritual is not for the faint of heart and I almost didn’t publish it… but it is nearly Halloween/Samhain (Northern Hemisphere) and I think some of you might find this useful. As always, if this doesn’t resonate with your Path, just bless it and let it go.
In order to get the most out of this Tarot Ritual you need to set the stage by building an altar to your ancestors. On this altar you place pictures or memorabilia of those who have crossed over, along with at least one candle and whatever other tools you like to use when you honour the gods and create ritual space for yourself. You also need a piece of red string, long enough to tie three knots and then to tie around your wrist to wear until the Dark Moon.
You will want to raise your vibration and get yourself into a more receptive state of consciousness. You can do this the shamanic way by drumming until you cross the hedge. I suggest drumming because it is quite easy and straightforward even if you have never journeyed before. If you have no drum, you can spend a few minutes doing breathwork instead. If you are in the habit of casting a circle for your magickal workings, I suggest you do so beforehand. Inside the circle, you are always safe.
I suggest working with a deck that has images that really speak to you… a deck that sings, even. Lay the cards out according to the spread layout below, before you start drumming. Then when you feel the energy shift, look at the cards and allow the messages to come. You may receive visions that are not related to the card images and that is completely safe and fine. It is also fine if you don’t. The messages can be subtle sometimes.
When you feel you have a clear view of the pattern that needs to be released from your family’s DNA, repeat the following chant three times:
I was born to heal and bring back in line
What trauma sundered in my bloodline
With loving support from the dead
I bind it all in with this sacred thread
All is forgiven, all are at peace
We are free to move with grace and ease
So mote it be!
Tie one knot for each time you repeat the chant and then tie the piece of string around your wrist.
Now is the time to just hang out with your loved ones on the other side. Show them your love and leave an appropriate offering on the altar. Flowers, a crystal, feathers, a shot of Jack Daniels… whatever resonates with your family.
When you feel done, you can say your farewells and open the circle with your method of choice. Make a note of your ritual in your journal or Book of Shadows.
Bury the piece of red string at the foot of a healthy old tree on a night of the next Dark Moon. The tree spirit will be the guardian of your bloodline, so leave an offering worthy of this task. You will know which tree to go with because it will call you.
If the prospect of performing this (or any) ritual feels overwhelming but you feel you need healing of your bloodline, I would like to recommend my friend, astrologist, and shamanic healer, Helen Tremeer. She does bloodline healing in a distance healing session so it doesn’t matter where in the world you are.

I did this on Halloween to attempt to heal the trauma that roots the uncontrolled rage that appears in some women in my family that is passed down through generations. Immediately afterward I felt a peace I hadnt felt in a long time. However, the red string which I wore loosely around my wrist became increasingly, esquisitely painful to wear so that when I napped on Saturday I must have torn it off and still haven’t located it. I would appreciate your thoughts.
Hi Kat, thanks for sharing. The thought that came when I red about the red string is that you no longer need it. What did the red string represent to you? Could it be connected with a part of your soul that returned with that peace you felt after the ritual? Blessings, Lisa
I’m really looking forward to trying this one out. I’ll report back 🙂
Thank you Elizabeth, I look forward to hearing how you go. Blessings
I feel a pull to this because I was recently told that my family has a curse on it for something one of my ancestors did. I have been tormented all my life with bad luck and two years ago now, dark entities. I sure hope this works, cause I have had enough! Would be nice to win that deck you mentioned you were giving away so I’d have something good come my way for a change.

Thanks for commenting, Marie. I’d take that comment about a ‘family curse’ with a great pinch of salt. This healing work is directed toward healing family trauma, not unhexing curses. Was it a fortune-teller who told you this and did they offer to lift the ‘curse’ for a fee? If that’s the case you were dealing with a charlatan. Blessings
I find this whole notion very interesting and would like to try something like this for myself. However im not used to practices of this kind… Im an astrology fan and love exploring the tarot…consider myself highly empathic and spiritual but am not used to shamanic type rituals. Im concerned that i wouldnt be doing it justice by performing my version of what ive understood here… Is there a smaller, less complex version that i could perform without diminishing its power?
Thanks for commenting Shelley. It’s not for everyone to do this sort of thing on your own. Perhaps you would do better in a group setting, with someone to guide and ground you. Samhain Blessings
Quite a spread to make us grow in spirit!
Maybe it can help us balance our life and clear up the karma! 🙂
Commenting on the newsletter!
Glad you enjoyed this, Ana. Yes, doing this ritual and acting on the guidance can definitely help rebalance karma. Thank you for commenting. Blessed be!
This ritual must be calling me, this is the second time today that I read Helen’s name. The first was in an email I just got regarding her email address change. Already know of a couple of patterns that need releasing, must give it a try! 🙂
Great, I hope you enjoy it, Susan! 🙂
