What is Family/Systemic Constellation and who is it for?
“Systemic (Family) Therapy” or “Family Constellation” can be considered a new science that serves to understand how underlying family bonds, traditions, events or traumas may be influencing your life.
This approach of personal development and therapy was first developed by the German psychotherapist, Bert Hellinger in the late 1980s and has continued to evolve and has been used successfully to resolve deep issues not resolved through conventional reductionistic psychotherapy.
Constellation work brings to light a new dimension of understanding our mind, our thinking and our belief patterns, by projecting hidden dynamics to three-dimensional space. (Read on to learn more about how it works)
For example our subconscious need to belong can misplace our loyalty and prevent us from leading a happier and more fulfilling life than our ancestors. We can become “entangled” with someone who has been “excluded” from the family and take on similar behaviours, feelings and fate. There are all limit us from living our own life and experiencing the full potential for love, vitality and prosperity.
Constellation is also being used in executive coaching, in resolving underlying business issues.
Those who have experienced Family/Systemic Constellation often find the process fascinating, and find what shows up to be uncannily accurate, and the insights they gain from the experience could not have been gained from other modalities.
The science behind?
Renowned Biologist Rupert Sheldrake’s morphic field theory that explains the flock behaviours such as that of fish and birds and across animals can explain how family constellation works. This is a short explanation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JydjryhEl5o
German origin Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt M.D., PhD, who is renowned for treating the most difficult health cases (patients who “have tried everything”) places Family Constellation as the 4th level of healing in his 5 levels of Healing model, below the ultimate level of “God” and “the divine”. (The 5 levels of Healing approach underlies Eastern medicine such as Tibetan, Chinese, Ayurvedic medicine and yogic tradition of healing.) This recording explains how he would for example treat autistic children not just addressing heavy metal and EMF stresses but also by Family Constellation: www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2EB4m9-DCw)
Family Constellation is an experiential and somatic process. It usually takes place in a group with at least 10 participants sitting in a circle. The process begins where the client, after presenting their own issue, ask the participants to represent members of his/her family (and they can accept or decline). The client then places intuitively each chosen person including his/her own representative inside the circle. After everyone is placed, the client takes a seat and observes.The representatives of the family members begin to feel like the real members – having the same emotions, feelings and urges of the person who they represent.Especially in more recent (post 2000) development of Family Constellation, there is less drama and the representatives follow the inner urge to move and from their movement, the experienced facilitator guides the client to witness and acknowledge what emerges. Often specific resolution sentences are used the profound shifts take place.Family Constellation can also be a deep experience for those who are in representative roles and even for those who just observe the process.
How do the representatives know what to do or say?
Life Integration Process
LIP was developed and created in 2011 by Dr. Wilfried Nelles, an experienced Family Constellation trainer who has worked closely with Bert Hellinger, the founder of Family Constellation. Since his development of the LIP, Dr Nelles no longer facilitates Family Constellations and has been focused on the Life Integration Process.Regardless of how grown up we feel and present ourselves, our child feelings and behavioral patterns deeply impact our daily lives, especially when we are under stress.We have all come with an inner vision into this world, with specific and unique potential that is meant to unfold through us during the course of our lives. Yet it’s easy to become disconnected with this inner vision.The Life Integration Process (LIP) is a powerfully direct yet profound application of Constellation principles that can facilitate lasting integration of our conflicting tendencies and connect us to our inner vision. The result is profound sense of inner strength and peace.
Like Family Constellation, LIP goes beyond the intellectual to the somatic and allows for powerful shift as a result. But unlike Family Constellation, representatives are used to represents one’s different life stages. While Family Constellation looks at our place in the family system, LIP looks at the most important relationships of all – our relationship with ourself.
LIP may especially benefit practitioners or individuals who have experienced Family Constellation work and are ready for deeper level of integration.
