The Power of Family Constellations

During a family constellation, the roles, patterns and beliefs within the family are identified, and the impact this has on your current life. This is done with a group of participants you do not know and who are not your family; representatives. Energetically this has quite some consequences. What this means is explained in this article. 

What About the Family System?

First of all, the family system. Usually, family constellation is based on family members. However, you are part of multiple family systems. Families in this life, such as the family you were born into and any in-laws. But also families from other lives. 

In addition, the impact of the family system comes primarily from the energy within the system rather than the physical actions and behaviors of family members. This is just an elaboration of that. Read more about the family system

How Representative are the Representatives of the Family Constellations?

During the family constellation, representatives take up a position in relation to each other and to you. The emotions and feelings that this evokes in them and in you are discussed in order to gain insight. For example, a representative of your little brother feels a suffocating tension which would indicate that you as a big sister have taken a too dominant role. 

However, the representatives themselves also carry baggage, such as karma, life lessons and traumas. So they (unconsciously) view and judge from their own perspective. And projecting that onto you and the situation.  

Power of Family Constellations: Merging of Energy

Each representative also has his or her own energy field. So do you. All these energy fields resonate with each other, and together they form a new energy field. This energy field is, of course, totally different from the collective energy field of your family. 

Through the family constellation, these energies do enter your energy system. As do the projections of the representatives. Because of this you have a mixture of energy. Which takes on a life of its own which usually leaves you further from home than before. Some examples: "Even during the family constellation my mother still couldn't say sorry." or "The distance between us during the constellation was so awful, it felt so cold and chilly." Quotes from people who have done a constellation and experience and talk about it as if the constellation was a situation within the actual family. Which it wasn't. 

Roles, Expectations, and Patterns

Often the reason for doing a family constellation is to gain insight into the roles, expectations and patterns within the family. However, gaining insight is different from actually breaking free from it. While that is usually the underlying goal. 

Do you not want to keep moving with or be swallowed up by other people's energy, choices, and emotions? But do you want to discover who you are and what you want, learn to stay true to yourself, make your own choices, and recognize and indicate your boundaries? Do you want to resolve things in yourself, so that you can grow and transform your life into the pleasant life you want? Sign up for the training Personal and Spiritual Leadership.

What is a Family System?

Although you are an individual, you are also part of family systems. Families in this life, such as the family you were born into and any in-laws. But also families from other lives.

"Be yourself, then it doesn't take energy to pretend to be different. People around you who don't accept you for who you are are not worth putting energy into.

Tricky story when the persons are your parents. Less so when it's family. And even less so when it's the society you surround yourself with.

The longest stretch of your life, you live under your own responsibility. Take that responsibility when your environment prevents you from being yourself."
