Family Constellation is a powerful method in which the flow of love is re-established in a family. In a Family Constellation session,
The experiences of the past continue to affect our lives in the present. We go through life doing things that we do not want to do.
We may feel trapped in endlessly repeating patterns that we seem to have no control over. We also tend to see our problems as belonging to us alone. Yet the fact is that we are born into a family system that already has powerful forces and hidden dynamics with roots in past generations that will continue to influence and impact our lives in the present without our knowledge.
Just as the human body contains the innate ability to heal itself, so does the family system. And just as symptoms and conditions can arise in the body from events that happened years ago, so can concern with health, emotions, relationships, and money crop up in our lives from events that happened in the family generations ago –even before we were born. We call such challenges entanglements.
Family Constellation allow us to break these patterns so that we can live healthier, happier, more fulfilled lives. In a moment of insight, a new life path can be set in motion. The results can be life-changing.
In Family Constellations, the sources of these problems may be found and resolved, allowing not only oneself, but also one’s family, to be free of these entanglements. Having a one-to-one Family Constellation is like giving a gift to yourself that enriches your life and the lives of those you love.
Below is the opportunity for you to accept this gift for yourself, for your family, for those who came before, and for those who will come after you.
If you plan for a one to one Family Constellation session either face-to-face or via skype, it is good to do a little preparation. I invite you to draw up a Genogram/Family Tree for you to gain a better insight into who actual is part of your family. The Information we consider important in doing your family constellation is primarily factual in nature.
we are looking for:
(1) What is your primary issue? We would like you to state this as concisely as possible. We will ask clarifying questions and will likely explore what would be a good outcome for you.
(2) What happened in your family (nuclear family and/or family of origin) that would be considered unusual, tragic, or that brought about a significant change in the life of the family.
Family of origin includes parents, siblings, grandparents, great grandparents (and sometimes further back), aunts, uncles, etc. It may also include important previous partners of parents or grandparents. Nuclear family includes spouse and children as well as significant former partners and children from former relationships. Sometimes people are considered family members if they have had a life-altering effect on the fate of the family.
Participants sets up a family “constellation”, after a discussion with the facilitator. Areas that have caused generational stress, and affected the “soul of the family are identified. Disorder, or interruptions of the flow of love are acknowledged. The key focus in these constellations is: Who is missing from the Family? Who was disowned, incarcerated, institutionalized, died and never spoken of?
A Family constellation session last 2 hours.
