What is the bridge between constellations work and ancestral work? In constellations we look at family systems dynamics to resolve or shift presenting issue. We notice entanglements, spot specific root of a pattern and make interventions to change it, to bring back the right order of things. We look at orders of love and for imbalances. We are a community, a circle, witnessing healing happening, and integrating it together as the change of one life changes all other lives. In ancestral work, through ritual, meditation and offering we build a relationship with our ancestors, holistically connecting with the whole field, including the excluded, seeing and acknowledging what is, offering gratitude for everything that happened so that we can have our life. We live the orders of love, they get rebalanced through this consistent practice. So in some way you do your own long term constellation in real life, step by step. All of it with incredible support from the ancient ones, those whose dream we are, ancestors of the lands we come from and go to. It is the simplest gift you can give yourself - the feeling of belonging, of having your own place and of trusting the unfolding of every day. So the two processes are complimentary, they don’t need each other to be effective, and combining them will bring a long lasting much more satisfying results. Build a reciprocal relationship with your ancestors and when something urgent or complicated comes up turn to a practitioner to support you in resolving it. How are you now a living dream of your ancestors? Imagine?

I am fascinated by the Systemic Family Constellations work and everything shamanic. I study it, practice it, research it. Here, I am sharing what I learn and hope it can be of use to somebody interested in healing their families, communities and lives.
In 2019 I published some of my poetry inspired by systemic work in this journal. It is available as PDF, Kindle or printed at the link above.
