Constellations (Ancestral Intelligence) Anyone?
Several years ago I decided to add an alternative healing modality known as Family Constellations, or Ancestral Intelligence, to my repertoire. What drew me to Constellations in the first place is the process of how the clearing of familial patterns and traumas occurs.
Constellations was developed by Bert Hellinger, a German psychotherapist, in the 1990’s. A Family Constellation is a three-dimensional group process that has the power to shift generations of suffering and unhappiness.
When growing up in our family of origin, many of us unconsciously “take on” destructive familial patterns of anxiety, depression, anger, guilt, alcoholism, and even illness as a way of fitting in to our families.
Even though it may not make much sense, a child will often sacrifice his/her own interests in order to ease the suffering of a parent or other family member. A child may often feel guilty for wanting to be happy and will instead take on these pains from the family.
Trauma and other unhealthy patters are passed down from one generation to the next, just as are our genes. The objective of Family Constellations is to work through these traumas in our present life so that we can better understand our families of origin. In turn, this will enable us to “put or past to rest” and truly live in the present.
I would love to have you join me this Saturday, Oct. 5th, as I will be having a Constellations workshop in Phoenix, AZ. The workshop will be from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM PST. If you are interested please contact me for more information.
Just think what a gift this clearing is for our future generations as well!
