Understand the blueprint of your ancestral line and instead of automatically following unconscious patterns of your family and ancestors perpetuating unspoken rules, beliefs, fears and limitations – you can bring about change.
Family is the springboard for life and the foundation that gives us our blue-print to all future interactions and explorations. It provides us with the wellspring of inner resources to support us in spreading into wider areas of life.
Family systems are governed by unspoken laws that direct the flow of energy in the family. In fact these laws have shaped the behaviour of families from time immemorial!
It is a well experienced phenomena that family members are often extremely loyal to these unwritten rules of their family system. Members struggle to step out of the family tribe that keeps them perpetuating old patterns no matter how much work they have done to free themselves.
How often have you worked on any of the following and while you may get some immediate to short term change only to see the issues come back?
- Feeling like you don’t belong – not knowing your place in your family, feeling like an outsider or being the black sheep of the family
- Not being able to make your relationships work or ending up creating relationships that resemble that of your parents?
- Being caught up in victim/perpetrator/rescuer triangles that seem out of control
- Being limited in life by family shame, guilt, anger or blame
- Taking on too much in your family, over compensating for other family members who slack, children becoming the parents
- Not being able to manifest your abundance – being afraid to be more successful than your parents and grandparents, repeating your families financial issues
- Addiction, depression, anxiety
How do Constellations work?
Use the power of family constellations and ancestral healings to shine a light onto your ancestral family and get to the root of underlying family bonds and blockages and free you all from bondage to these old patterns. Restore the natural flow of love and energy in the ancestral family line and soul. This is an alternate therapeutic method developed by Bert Hellinger in the 1990’s as a culmination of his life’s journey and life’s work. He drew elements of psychotherapy, family systems therapy, existential phenonmology and Zulu attitudes to family to develop this healing modality.
Family Constellation and ancestral healing is usually done as a group with 8 to 15 participants. The facilitator and the group open up an energetic field within which the dynamics of the family is shown. This field holds the energy imprint of the entire family line! It has been described by Rupert Sheldrake as the morphogenic field, and by others as what Jung describes as the collective unconscious, or even an auric energy field.
The person constellating will choose representatives for their family members and place them in the field. The spatial positions and bodily sensations of the representatives, give information about the systemic entanglement.
This highlights one of the most fascinating and meaningful aspect of the method for many people. The representatives when standing in the “field” of the system, feel sensations and emotions that fit the person who they are representing. This is information about the family blueprint and guides the facilitator towards resolution for the person constellating.
Healing of the family system is supported by the interventions of the facilitator, who brings in missing or excluded family-members, suggests new and more conscious behaviors, and finds healing sentences for the family members to say to each other. Finally a new, more natural and healing balance for the whole system can be found, where the love between its members can flow again in a new and more conscious way.
By resolving the unconscious collective laws operating within a family system this work also helps us to fall in tune with higher laws that take us beyond both the personal and the individual family, and brings us in contact with another dimension, where we all are one.
