FAMILY CONSTELLATIONS

Family & Systems Constellations with Amanda Gifford.

The constellation process uses images and the body experience rather than words or narrative. The first image that presents at the beginning of a client’s process is that of their internal picture of their current family system. From this image the facilitator can offer a working hypothesis of the family dynamic. This is confirmed or added to by the feedback from the representatives.

“Absolutely intense experience. So many wounded individuals in the world carrying the sins of our mothers and fathers and working through the layers of those who came before us, those we have chosen to experience in this now. This constellation was such an expansion of the self. It was the first time I felt the collective of human hurts and misunderstandings personally. We truly are not alone. The threads that connect us are strong. I had a moment to reflect on the relationships I have with my family and not take things so personally. sometimes, it really is not about me and it truly is a good thing. Thank you Amanda.” Mpho July 15th 2017

Letting the system move to a flow of love through insight and the multifaceted weave of consciousness. Every persons wisdom in the Constellating adds to the healing and wellbeing.

As the constellation progresses, the hidden dynamics of the system are revealed. Slowly the process moves toward a resolution where the inner image is one where each member of the family has found a good place in the system. This is measured by the bodily ease and comfort that each representative feels. The resolving image is a new inner reality that the client can take with them into their outer world (Hellinger 1998).

Amanda Gifford from GeniusLab South Africa, William Brown from Resonance Foundation Hawaii and Jaime Leal-Anya from Super Consciousness Magazine Yelm, WA USA share a mindmeld about epigenetics, thoughts, frequency, focus, health, sound, observer effect and experiential methodologies for health and wellbeing of the system like Drama Therapy and Family & Systems Constellations work that Amanda has been doing in South Africa and much more. Listen to this conversation if you are interested in the research in the study of applied mind, health, DNA, epigenetics, thought, frequency, consciousness and mastering your experience of reality by learning to resonate the frequency you wish to experience. William Brown is a biophysicist and research scientist at the Resonance Project Foundation (http://resonance.is/) and Hawai’i Insitute for Unified Physics (http://hiup.org), where he performs experimentation and theoretical work to better understand the physics of complex systems. He explores all systems of knowledge, from physics and biology to ontology and the nature of consciousness. Although his exploration of understanding is all inclusive, William’s professional background is in cellular and molecular biology. He has worked in numerous laboratory facilities across the United States and has extensive experience in molecular biology research.

WHAT IS A FAMILY CONSTELLATION?
Family and Systems Constellations is a therapeutic method developed by Bert Hellinger, German psychotherapist, author and teacher. Although Hellinger’s work transformed considerably in recent years, his early work is known today as “Classical Constellations”, which deals with the trans-generational dynamics of family systems.

Hellinger worked as a missionary in Natal for 16 years, and is currently in his 80’s. In his early work, Hellinger uncovered what he has called the “Orders of Love”, (natural laws, which assist the flow of love within a family system).

Using family constellations, the problematic dynamics that operate in families can become visible and can be experienced by the client from a meta-position or in an embodied way that brings new insights and perspectives.

This work emerged out of indigenous healing systems, psychotherapy, family therapy, group therapy, systems theory and phenomenology. Constellations have also been used in education, health care, prisons and other social services.

When the person is “entangled” in their system, they may experience a range of physical, emotional and mental difficulties and struggle to engage with life and their current context in their full strength. With the constellation, patterns that run over many generations can be revealed, and resources that strengthen the person become evident within the wider family system. During the family constellation, the body, mind and heart of the person can be engaged so that the healing is not merely an intellectual insight, but an experience that can draw on various sources for resources and solutions.

Families and individuals can address issues such as marriage and relationship difficulties, physical and mental illness, addiction, adoption, grief, employment and finances. Organizations can use this process for coaching team members or to focus on restructuring, communication, decision-making, and strategic issues. Constellations may also reveal a new perspective on issues related to inheritance, family businesses, war, crimes and race. Constellations have also been applied to community settings, reconciliation, and environmental and political themes.

In a constellation people representing family members or elements of any system are placed in relationship to each other, making a 3D image of the system available to the facilitator. From this set up, the facilitator and client can develop potential solutions to provide effective intervention in the system. Those who have facilitated the work, as well as those who have experienced it, find both the effect and the process difficult to explain. The outcome of the work is: a greater ability for love to flow between family members, regardless of the family “story”. In the case of Organizations, a greater flow of acknowledgment, productivity and/or profit is observed.

Systemic and Family Constellations can also be done in individual counseling and coaching settings using genograms, floor markers or figurines.

Family and Systems Constellations is not always gentle approach, and can instigate larger healing shifts that can make the symptom or client feel worse in some cases before getting better. It is not a substitute for long term therapy and it is not recommended to attend group workshops when suffering from a depressive episode, psychosis or post traumatic stress. Individual Constellations are a better choice if the client is already feeling overwhelmed or vulnerable.
