About two years ago I attended my second Family Constellation Workshop with Helen and Claudio Celestino and wow, was that an experience.
I had previously been to one of their workshops as a representative (click here for a brief overview of what this all is) and could feel the power of the work and experience. It was amazing. Without over analysing things, in fact not analysing really at all, just observing and listening to the own body new insights come. Not just to the person who actually does a constellation but specifically to the representative as well.
Being chosen as a representative always has resonance with the topic at hand to the person themselves. It’s amazing to observe and experience this. In my opinion, it is the perfect way for people who might be a bit shy to lay out their constellation in front of others or those who don’t feel like they have a burning issue they’d like to solve yet still want to benefit from going through such a process.
For those who do want to tackle an issue within themselves choosing to do a constellation is an entirely different ballgame. I did about 2 years ago and wow, that was transformational! My topic was my life long feelings of “abandonment”. Starting from my father wanting me aborted to my first husband choosing alcohol over me, all the way to my child’s father “abandoning” us both never to return and all sorts of other stuff in between. With all this I always felt abandoned and thus lonely. It was my biggest struggle being in a different country, without family and little friends.
I spent agonising hours crying and just being utterly lonely. With not a soul in sight, except for a little baby then toddler.
I did my constellation during the workshop and I can’t even begin to describe how powerful this process was! Trust me to have something going on that eventually involved the entire group 🙂 We had to go up the entire maternal ancestral line of mine, all the ladies suffered just as I did from feeling abandoned. Well, it was healed that day.
Never again have I spent a lonely moment. Ever. It is amazing to me, still to this day, but that’s just how it is. I’m still on my own but I’m not bowling my eyes out over it, in fact I’m quite happy with it. Sure sometimes it’s too much being alone and then the next person that happens to lend me an ear gets a bit of a downpour of words 🙂 but that horrible pain in the stomach, that terrible feeling of loneliness, it’s gone. And that has been since I’ve done that constellation.
And ever since I wanted to bring Helen and Claudio out to Somerset West to do a workshop here, so that my friends here can experience this amazing work as well without having to travel to the other end of Cape Town.
The time has arrived! And with it a new constellation for me. I have already booked my own constellation slot for this day and it will be deep again 🙂 4-5 constellations can be accommodated on a day like that and I can’t even begin to tell you how much I’m looking forward to it!
Here is all the info about when and where (Aug 6), I’m sorting out the registrations so please let me know if you are going to be part of it!
SO looking forward to it 🙂
