What is Constellation Work?

Constellations Produce Powerful Results

We all were born into a family. Whatever its form—two parents, one parent, many siblings or none—it was a constellation of people that would be the entirety of our universe during our most formative years, our collection of people.

We learn very early that survival on many levels is paramount. We develop habits and beliefs and adjust constantly to the world of the family around us—to make sure that we will survive. We also do everything we think we need to do to fit in to that constellation, so we can get what we need. We will take on any role. We will act in ways that we believe will make our parents love us. We become what we believe they need so that they will accept us and take care of us. And then we create beliefs to explain what we don’t understand when we don’t get what we need. For example: “They must love my brother so much that there’s no love left for me.” “I am not important.” “There must be something wrong with me.” “If I am good at sports, they will love me and be proud of me.” “I am the cause of their arguments.” “It’s my fault.” And on and on.

According to Bert Hellinger, the innocent child wants only to love its family and often sacrifices his or her own best interests in the blind belief that this suffering will ensure its 'belonging' to the family. If unresolved, these burdens and entanglements will be passed on from generation to generation creating turmoil and disharmony.

Family constellation work reveals and illuminates the unconscious, and often destructive, loyalties within families. Rather than exploring the conflicts of one’s childhood, Hellinger’s constellation work examines the tragedies in one’s family including traumatic events, such as the premature death of a parent, sibling or child, abandonment, war, crime, or suicide. Entangled or burdened with unhappiness from the past, family members often continue patterns of anxiety, depression, anger, guilt, fear, chronic illness and unfulfilled relationships, and pass them on to their children and to subsequent generations. Adult “Children” more often than not, will unconsciously mirror relationship difficulties of their parents.

Exposing these hidden dynamics within families enables shifts to occur on a systemic level, so that the natural flow of love, strength and support can be experienced and passed on. Without this resolution there is no peace in the soul, no peace in the family, or in future generations.

Hellinger’s Systemic Constellation Work focuses on the soul of the family and the trauma that has occurred, whether physical or emotional. When a trauma is unresolved, it will be passed on from generation to generation, and can result in addiction, anxiety, depression, illness, and an unfulfilled life.

In the work I will do with you, we will explore the unresolved traumas of your family so that we not only heal and resolve these for each individual, but for the entire family constellation.
