What’s Open Family Constellations?
We all carry within us an internal blueprint of our family. As children we connected to the family in a particular way, taking on certain roles that were often not the ones we should have had in the family structure. This blueprint enforces its subtleties upon our unconscious and influences the way we relate to ourselves, to others and in our work as well.
By recreating the main segments of our family in a “Family Constellation”, we clearly see and understand unresolved dynamics, which have been affecting us to this day. We can then let go and live in maturity and freedom.
Through simple, yet powerful interventions, harmony can be restored, creating more space for living a more fulfilled life.
Before participating in a Family Constellation
You should inform the facilitator of your family situation and closed related incidents that occurred, even if they happen in previous generations like:
- Family Recurring illnesses
- Relatives unjustly treated, excluded or forgotten by the family
- Tragic deaths
- Political murders
- Inheritance conflicts
- Economic problems
- Important relationships failures
- New unions
- Half-siblings known or unknown
- Thefts or frauds
- Family secrets
- Death of a young relative
- Suicides or suicidal attempts
- Tortured or missing relatives
- Acts of war
- Dirty money
- Previous parents relationships before the union
- Degenerative illnesses
- Anorexic or bulimic issues
This list has the sole purpose to serve the therapy, giving the facilitator an opportunity to analyze before the Family Constellation. The problems previously mentioned can have their root in other generations, even if the participants are not aware of them or even met their relatives.
