As for question 8, I'm interested in helping the spirit of my ancestor receive healing, if it's needed.

A question i have: I'd like this spread to be general, but for me, i know the trauma took place around 18 or 19 generations ago on my mother's father's side; do you think there a way to hone in on that knowledge with the spread?
How comfortable are you with big spreads? Delving into how trauma was expressed over 18-19 generations is already an 18-19 card spread by itself.

I'm not going to number the positions because doing so fixes them and we may not be there yet. So far we have:
  • What was the trauma?
  • How was it expressed in that first generation?
  • Who experienced the trauma?
  • What effect did the trauma have on their life?
  • What is the legacy the trauma has introduced into the family line?
  • What effect has the trauma had on my family today?
  • How can I heal the trauma I inherited?
  • How can I heal the trauma the rest of my family has inherited?
  • How can I help the spirit of my ancestor heal, if that's needed?
