Offering your womb blood mixed with water
Choose a beautiful bowl, vase or other recipient that is not too small and fill it with cold water. In this water you can soak your cotton hygienic pads. Use cold water because the stains will not go away if you use warm water. Do not use any soap in this phase of the process. After letting it soak for a good while, take the hygienic pad out, rub and squeeze the blood out and let it drip into the recipient. The water in the bowl will absorb the blood and become red in colour. You can bring this diluted blood to the trees directly after having washed the pad. But you can also leave the bowl on your altar until the right moment presents itself to go to a tree to offer your blood. Or you can put the water into the fridge or even freeze it until you have time to use it in ritual.
Offering your blood means that you give this elixir of water and blood to a tree of your heart’s choice. You can choose one special tree to bring your blood to every moon, or you can allow your intuition to feel into where your blood is most needed at this certain time. If possible, go into the woods and give yourself as much time as you need. The forest needs our slow and loving attention and our sacred blessing of the blood.
If you have chosen a tree, go there and ask, if you have permission to touch and bring the gift of your blood. You will feel the answer inside. While you give your blood, feel into your womb and your heart. You can use words like this:
While you are slowly pooring your blood onto the tree or into the soil, sing or recite the beautiful Tara mantra for yourself and for the trees: “Om Tare Tuttare Ture Soham”. A mantra is a sequence of special sounds and vibrations that are repeated to purify and heal space, body, mind and consciousness from negative energies. “Om Tare Tuttare Ture Soham” is an ancient sacred formula that calls upon the powerful divine energy of Tara. If you bring your awareness to the meaning of the words, the mantra becomes even stronger.

After the incantation of the Tara mantra and the offering of your blood, please take your time, breath, feel love and gratitude. Listen inside, lots of things can come up and show themselves at this moment. Thank the tree for the honor of hosting the ritual and say goodbye. If possible, perform the ritual every day during your moontime.

Take your time for the transition back as you might be very open now and the world around has not yet changed.
We want to thank you for the honor of having you as part of the global Red Tree movement. Mother Earth, the trees and the Sisterhood of all WoMen around the world need the awakening of WoMen to their sacredness.
