Developed by Bert Hellinger, Family Constellations evolved through setting up and observing constellations. He proposed that a ‘systemic conscience’, family soul or Orders of Love govern families and systems, supporting harmony, balance and growth in families or systems such as schools, organizations or communities. Conversely family constellations can identify any disruption in these orders of love creating imbalances or entanglements to the flow of love and support. This can appear as illness, relationship problems, emotional disturbances etc.
Many of the problems we are experiencing in life and in our relationships are due to the fact that we carry the burden that one or more of our ancestors were unable to resolve at the time. Looking once again at what happened to those ancestors and giving now what could not be given then, can lead to resolution and lifting of the old burden. To bring about healing we use our natural ability to resonate with the feelings of others to “bring back“ momentarily those distressed or excluded ancestors, allowing them to “relive” and “resolve” their painful episodes, undoing the present family member’s entanglement with that ancestor.
This is a method of looking at the entanglements, lack of support, no-flow of love and disharmonies within a family and the effect that has on us, ie: depression, anger or illness etc, and restoring the gifts and support of our ancestors.
