When it comes to gathering with family we may be faced with the ghosts
of the past, and our limitations on the loving person we wish to be.
It's THAT time of year again, the season of celebration and family gatherings. Whether we enter with open hearts and the best of intentions, or dread the thought of making our way through, it is a time when we are face to face with just how mature and evolved we really are.
Ah yes, FAMILY, the final frontier.
Or, as the saying goes, it's where the rubber hits the road, and on the road to awakening there is no bypassing our energetic family inheritance.
Awhile back I heard a sweet story during a Dharma talk. I was sitting in the back row of a Zen Center, and the center's Chaplin was sharing about her longtime practice, and " life off the cushion." The audience sat in rapt attention and stillness... UNTIL, she mentioned the F word, FAMILY. My back row seat afforded me a unique vantage point of the entire room. It was fascinating to witness that people immediately started moving, itching, stretching, and coughing. Just the thought of family moved through the apparent serene room as a visible wave of discomfort.
As she dove into her story describing a challenging relationship with her parents and the difficulty in being with it, she shared something that offered her peace of mind. She was surprised and relieved when her revered teacher told the her what she had discovered in relationship with her own parents. "Forty years of practice has gained me ten minutes with my parents" What a revelation, with all her focused hard work, the Chaplin realized she was not alone in the struggle to connect open heartedly with those closest to her.
So we are in good company when it comes to courageously facing the behaviors and issues that persist that we hold unconsciously for our family.
"Anytime we gather with family, disturbances and traumas from generations past may show up in a myriad of behaviors and reactions."
It is no wonder that people become sick, depressed, and suicidal.
You can begin to change that, starting right now.
A Family Constellation facilitates shifts on a soul and DNA level. Through transforming our energetic family inheritance we may experience what lead to a difficult reaction in the past no longer holds a charge, it is no longer a disturbance. In its place a new response is now available; we and those around us feel safer, more loving, and can stand in new found strength.
Amazingly the Family Constellation creates shifts in an entire family without anyone else having to be involved. For the first time we may feel included, acknowledged, and whole.
When the past is present, it is showing us there is unconscious love waiting to be transformed to conscious love.
I invite you to enjoy this season, take a step in gratitude towards an awakened heart and life.
Our lives, our families, our planet needs us at full open hearted loving capacity, now more than ever.
