Inherited family trauma and healing through Family Constellations

If you don’t know what it is you’re looking for, how could you possibly find it?

Anxiety, fear, financial worries, depression, illness and unhappy relationships can all be forms of inherited emotional trauma. Our current therapeutic models rarely identify the unconscious family dynamics that underlie many of the physical, emotional and psychological symptoms that we experience. Left unresolved, these traumas, some going back two or three generations, can ensnare you in feelings and situations that don’t belong to you. They can forge a blueprint for your life, and are passed onto your children.

How is the blueprint made?

Unconsciously, we relive our mother’s anxiety, and repeat our father’s disappointments. We replicate the failed relationships of our parents or grandparents, and needlessly walk the same emotional path. Constellation therapy can give you the opportunity to look “outside the box” and make your unconscious past visible.

How does Family Constellation work?

Family Constellations is an experiential process where you are able to construct a visceral, three-dimensional ancestral healing experience,  that allows you to examine hidden dynamics, reset the broken bonds, create new positive images, with new sensations, that take root in the body and mind. It is done in a one-on-one or group therapeutic setting and focuses on the nervous system’s response to past traumatic events. This can aid in constructing new neural pathways —literally seeing things in a different light. Each time the new image is revisited, an opening is created, giving you the opportunity to understand your past, address it, and consciously change direction.

Family Constellation at Empower Health

Here at Empower Health we focus on integrated healing. We work with the body’s response and its capacity to receive this new deeply healing ancestral reorganization of the family system. The more you are able to be present to this experience the more long-lasting the healing will be. We focus on your nervous system and its capacity to open and be present to this experience so that integration occurs.

Family Constellations can help put things in their proper place, coming to terms with the past, finding the grace of forgiveness, and forging a new positive direction.
