Family Constellations: Heal Family Baggage & Ancestral Trauma
You often hear people saying, “You look exactly like your mother!” or “Your grandfather had the same artistic abilities too.”. Most of us know that our physical traits, creative inclinations and even our emotional attributes come from our family members.
But did you know that we could manifest experiences in our lives due to a profound event that may have occurred in our family history? That relationship trouble that you have been facing all your life or the money issues that your sibling is struggling with could well be the emotional impact of an ancestral family situation that has been passed down the genetic line.
What is Family Constellation?
Family constellations is a solution-focused therapeutic approach that aims to heal the multi-generational impact that memories, shared incidents or traumas have on us. This powerful healing method was developed by renowned German psychotherapist, Bert Hellinger.
Simply put, each of us inherits a collective memory from past members of our families or ancestors. Family constellation helps address and release any unprocessed emotions that you may be carrying in your DNA that is blocking you from living an abundant life.
According to Rupert Sheldrake, author and researcher in the field of parapsychology, Morphic Resonance is “the idea of mysterious telepathy-type interconnections between organisms and of collective memories within species”. We are connected through a morphogenic field that contains memories and energies of a family or a group. This hypothesis of morphic resonance leads to a completely new interpretation of memory storage in relation to biological inheritance.
How Does Family Constellation Work?
In this line of work, we look at families, organizations, communities, or countries as systems. The system is the energy field that connects the members and holds them together.
According to Bert Hellinger, the way we thrive, behave, or live in these systems is guided by certain principles. They are:
- The need to belong
- The need to follow a chronological hierarchy or order
- The need for balance
When these principles are followed, we live in harmony and we grow. But these principles are out of balance, it is often seen that the children of the families, purely out of love and loyalty, subconsciously try to bring back the order.
This is called entanglements. This could show up in form of relationship issues, illnesses, any kind of abuse, abundance blocks, trouble with earning or saving money, or career success.
These systemic symptoms or entanglements often point to the missing element from generations before and when they are acknowledged, the symptoms disappear. These symptoms can be:
- Relationship issues
- Overcoming scars of abuse
- Painful family situations
- Attracting the wrong kind of partner repeatedly
- Physical illnesses
- Blocks to money
- Stalled success
- Issues in career advancement
Constellations reveal hidden dynamics in our families and release blocks in our unconscious mind that limits our health, growth, or happiness. This holistic healing approach brings the system back into harmony. It helps restore the balance, so that people can walk free of the entanglements, welcoming the life they truly want to live.
