The science of Epigenetics shows the hidden influences upon the genes that affect how we relate to all things. Genes have memory as well as an energetic field. This memory creates a resonance field of knowing (Knowing Field). It is this energetic field of knowing that allows us to remember through body sensations which we often translate into thoughts and meaning. The mind puts meaning to sensations so we have a sense of control and understanding. When we deal with genetic memory or neutralize it the meaning we give things and the sensations we experience can aline with our current reality or experience.
Biophysicist Rupert Sheldrake identified the knowing field or the morphogenic field as the place that holds the informational pattern of our entire family system, similarly to the inherited DNA structure we receive from our forebears.
Belonging is our greatest longing. The soul honors the realities of the tribe. The family soul does not rest until every member and event is fully included with support, love and forgiveness. "When there has been a trauma or someone in the family system has been excluded, forgotten, cast out, or suffered a difficult fate, someone of the following generations unconsciously and invariably will step in and bring the lost member's destiny back through living it out in this lifetime effecting us in ways in which we have no understanding. It happens out of a deep but hidden loyalty out of the secret law that will not allow anyone of a family system being denied the right to belong. It is a love so deep that the family member may unconsciously choose to die, rather than "betray" the family bond." Bert Hellinger
How the Constellation is set up over the phone for individual sessions:
The Constellation is visualized as a circle which represents the Knowing Field. In this circle you visualize the family members and other necessary individuals positioned in the manner that feels right to you. Laurel will guide the visualization while you respond to the interactions taking place within the Knowing Field. Clearings will be added to the process to clear built up energy and assist the transformation process. As The Constellation progresses, the needs of the soul emerge, and the gestures and sentences of healing present themselves. Through words, demonstrations of honor, acknowledgement and forgiveness the wounds are revealed so they can be transformed.
How the Constellation is set up for in-person gatherings:
The working participant in a Systemic Constellation, the client, will have an issue. Laurel will conduct a brief private interview regarding events and facts of the family. This allows a level of discernment to determine the roles to be represented. This "blind Constellation" allows for the freedom from projection on the part of all participants so we limit the involvement of the mind and maximize the potency of the knowing field. The client will choose people from the group to "represent" the person or state being worked with. The client sets up the representatives, as it feels right to them, in the circle which is “the knowing field”. When representatives are placed in The Constellation they will notice the sensations and energy of the person or state they stand for.
As The Constellation progresses, the needs of the soul emerge, and the gestures and sentences of healing present themselves. Through words and demonstrations of honor, acknowledgement and forgiveness the wounds are revealed so they can be transformed. Often the client as well as the individuals involved in The Constellation start to feel greater strength, love and purpose. When the past is held with understanding and compassion an energy is released that enables everyone in the room, and their families, greater access to a sense of belonging and individual capacity!
Following The Constellation it is important participants stay with the feelings and sensations of the work rather than analyzing them. It is beneficial to just have some down time to rest, drink water, and allow everything to integrate. If people do want to talk about the constellation it's best to focus on the blessings that came out of it so this is where the energy continues to go and grow. The Constellation also needs to be held confidential with everybody in the room participating or witnessing.
Laurel specializes in empowering systems of all kinds whether it is the physical system, emotional system, energetic system of the body, family system, corporate systems or other systems we live or work in. In corporations it is normal for family of origin issues to get projected into the community dynamics causing confusion and drama. In the Corporate Constellation Workshops Laurel facilitates and enhances community well-being by uncovering the hidden issues and dynamics needing to be resolved. This gentle process causes conscious awareness in place of confusion and harmony in place of drama. When Constellations are done everyone benefits even if they are an observer. In addition to resolving presented issues, beneficial effects are often noticed throughout the weeks and months that follow.
