Do you know that we inherit the traumas from our ancestors?
Just as we inherit our eye color and blood type, we also inherit the residue from traumatic events that have happened in our family. These unresolved traumas from our family system may be at the root of some persistent challenges we currently face like anxiety, fear, financial worries, depression, illness and unhappy relationships. They can all be forms of our unconscious inheritance.
Family Constellations are a way to connect with our "Family Soul." It has the ability to reveal hidden and often destructive family dynamics and activate healing resources. In other words, it reveals the trans-generational entanglements presented as destructive patterns that are causing us so much suffering in different areas of our lives. It has the power to shift generations of suffering and unhappiness.
Family Constellations was developed by Bert Hellinger based on Virginia Satir’s work in family therapy. He has been teaching this work for more than 40 years and wrote many books on the subject, some are listed on “Resources” page. He describes Family Constellations this way:
“So, to explain a constellation just a little, all people carry with them an energetic field or blueprint of their biological families—this field has been called by some a family soul, or family conscience. That field has an enormous unconscious effect on each family members life and all the people they interact with. Long-standing problems with health, depression, relationships, failed finances, etc. are usually a result of unconscious ‘entanglements’ in the family soul. Doing a constellation is a way to bring those entanglements to light, and to allow some resolution to happen. Quite often after a constellation, other members of the family who were not present for the constellation—and didn’t even know it was happening–report dramatic shifts as a result. Because the family is a system—like an energetic mobile, what affects one, affects all. And what keeps one stuck, affects them all.”
The principle of Family Constellations is also used in business and is called Organizational Constellations. It reveals hidden dynamics in key areas of the business such as leadership, conflict resolution, culture change etc.
If you are finding some area of your life blocked regardless of the personal growth work you’ve done, a constellation may be the breakthrough you are looking for. It can be done in a group or individual (one-on-one) sessions. If you are interested in participating in a group, please have a look on my “Events” page to check for workshops near you.
