Since 2019, I have immersed myself in a very unique practice called Family Constellations. Although I love the name of the practice, I have noticed it does not fully capture the depth or vastness that the process embodies as a whole. There is a basic formula that we use, however within that formula, there is an unlimited potential to creatively work with literally any energy in our life that needs to be transformed.
The word family in this context is not limited to our family of origin! Working with our immediate family unit is an absolutely powerful place to start, and the sky is the limit on how to utilize this practice for insight, shifts, and deep transformation.
I have also found this work to be very gentle and profoundly deep in how it unfolds into our waking life. It's cellular and one more modality that has to be experienced to be fully understood.
Isn't that just the nature of all quantum based modalities?
My FC teacher and mentor Tammy Roth often refers to Family Constellations as phenomenological, even going so far as to say this practice is a model for 5D living.
Many participants say it feels so similar to having a psychic reading in that they receive insights that lie just beneath the surface of their awareness. In my experience, it goes many steps beyond our initial layers of awareness into the quantum field to release tension that is the causation of patterns held within unseen layers of our Being.
Family Constellations take us to the origin of our patterns that are most often formed and then passed down the line of our ancestors (hence that cellular affect).
One simple and helpful way to perceive the process is to think of the tension that is created from a traumatic experience as creating a knot-like effect in our ancestor’s field (many will also describe this tension as a block), which is then distributed through the DNA to everyone who follows in that lineage. The knot literally stops the flow through the lineage at the point of trauma.
The constellation process creates a flow of love so that the tension can begin to gently unravel the knot in the line. What I find very beautiful about Family Constellations is that It is not important to figure anything out or fix anything. By bringing awareness to the trauma, we simply allow the intelligence of the quantum field to work it's magic.
Two basic tenets of the practice are acknowledging difficult truths and accepting that everything belongs. Patterns are witnessed, emotions are felt, and it is all embraced in a loving container that holds space for all that is so that we and generations that follow us can benefit from more flow and ease.
