The ‘Black Sheep’, ... those who scream rebel, repair, detoxify and create a new and blooming branch
Nufar Livny Laskov (art credit) The 'Black Sheep' in the eye of the family constellation “The So-called ‘Black Sheep’ of the family are, in fact, seekers of liberation roads for the family tree. Those members of the tree who do not adapt to the rules or traditions of the family system, those who were constantly seeking to revolutionize beliefs, going in contrast to roads marked by family traditions, those criticized, tried and even rejected, those, by general, they are called to release the tree of repetitive stories that frustrate entire generations. The ‘Black Sheep’, those who do not adapt, those who scream rebel, repair, detoxify and create a new and blooming branch… countless unfulfilled desires, unfulfilled dreams, frustrated talents of our ancestors manifest themselves in their rebellion looking to take place . The family tree, by inertia, will want to continue to maintain the castrating and toxic course of its trunk, which makes its task difficult and conflicting… that no one makes you doubt, take care of your ‘rarity’ as the most precious flower of Your Tree. You are the dream of all your ancestors." ~Bert Helinger~
Let me describe the 'family constellation' a little more.
We sit together 1-1 or in a group. This can be done in person or online. The 'seeker' or person with the personal challenge chooses people from the group to represent various family members. With the assistance of the facilitator the representatives are able to share what they are feeling. These are typically things that have gone unnamed and never processed in the family. Working in this way allows the seeker and the family to bring these quieted or hidden dynamics into light and see how they are being affected by their family history. True change can take place once the event is witnessed by at least one other person and the family members are held in a respectful and loving way.
