Family Constellations is an opportunity to heal and to gain awareness about relationships, health issues, anxiety, anger, physical pain or the impact of past traumas that may be holding you back from living your life to your full potential.
These issues may be symptoms of a burden we carry (unconsciously) for an ancestor. We can also look at issues such as illnesses, addictions and negative patterns that occur in our lives. The power of using the family constellation approach is that it brings into awareness new information a new picture that helps you to release and heal, to make whole again.
A Family Constellation is soul work it has the power to shift generations of suffering and unhappiness. Bert Hellinger is the founder of this work, he has studied and treated families with this work for more than 50 years.
Hellinger found that each member of our family holds a special place and has an equal right to belong to the family system. This applies equally to stillborn and aborted babies, as well as to the failures and perpetrators in our family who may have been rejected for reasons of immorality, criminal misconduct or abuse. If any member of the family is disrespected, forgotten, excluded, or disregarded in some way, someone in a later generation may repeat his or her fate by sharing a similar misfortune. Only when we acknowledge and honor the difficult fates of those who’ve preceded us, can the “Orders of Love” be reestablished and the chain of tragic destinies be broken.
We have all grown up in different family systems. It is there that we developed our patterns of relating. Often these patterns create dysfunctional relationships. We want to change yet don’t know how to start, where to look, what to do.
Entanglements in family dynamics can result in relationship difficulties between partners, between parents and children, and between siblings. The work with family constellations gives us the opportunity, in a powerful, safe setting, to look deeply into the entanglements of our Family of Origin as well as our family today.
Family Constellations is working with the soul and the ripple effect can flow 7 generation forwards & back through the generations. We may have behaviors that keep recurring regardless of counselling, and these behaviors are showing us what needs to be seen & acknowledged within our ancestry, once this occurs the balance can be returned to the family system and harmony and love can flow freely.
Bert Hellinger’s aim was to see if there were dynamics hidden within our immediate family and our family of origin that could have the ability to make a negative impact. He found that there is a natural family dynamic that was observed and he named it “The Orders of Love”. These orders support the flow of harmony and love within the family.
- Those who come first, come first.
- Those who belong, belong
- The balance of giving and taking.
- Everyone’s fate is their own.
‘ORDERS OF LOVE WORK TOGETHER”
When the balance of the natural order is displaced by events such as early death, war, divorce, abuse and neglect, the negative effect can linger for generations. As we become entangled, this stops the flow of love. Family constellations give us the opportunity, in a safe and powerful environment, to deeply look into issues and restore the balance to our family of origin and our current family system. This work is soul work and is done with the utmost respect for all family members present or not, alive or deceased.
Diane uses the modality of working with Family constellations in individual counselling, marriage counselling and occasionally within the setting of a workshop. Workshops are held for one day and can consist of up to 20 people.
A COUPLE OF QUOTES!
“Children seldom or never dare to live a happier or more fulfilling life than their parents. Unconsciously they remain loyal to unspoken family traditions that work invisibly. Family Constellations are a way of discovering underlying family bonds and forces that have been carried unconsciously over several generations.”
“A person’s greatness is that which makes him/her equal to others”
