constellations in words
Every step of the process is meaningful from beginning to the end. From the moment you decide to attend a constellation group to the moment you leave the room, every step contributes to the final result.
Constellation circle creates a temporary mini system where all elements connect and impact each other. Before everyone gathers I prepare the space and ask that the work is meaningful for each and everyone who turns up. Whoever come are the right people to be there.
When we finally settle down, we ground ourselves through a meditation, to arrive, to be present, to create an intention for the work. We become a circle. We co-create and hold the field allowing deep movement to happen in anyone within the field.
As an issue holder you are asking all elements of the circle to support your intention and facilitate acceptable resolution. As a representative you enter the field and allow it do the work through you and for you. The most effective work happens while you are in the field, when you are representing and at the same time releasing what doesn’t serve your own life any more.
Every step of a constellation process is a little ritual and together they create a collective ceremony that has beginning, middle and end. The more we are aligned with each other and in tune with the field the deeper work is possible. We become part of the work and the work becomes part of us. Take any of these elements out and the magic drops.
You are welcome and you are essential from the very beginning to the very end.
I am fascinated by the Systemic Family Constellations work. 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.
