Constellation Corner: Do Ancestral Families Have Souls?

Our ancestral families form a kind of system or soul that extends across generations and influences our adult lives. We look at one being re-aligned.

Well, some families have soul, you say, and some don’t. It just depends on what kind of tunes they like. Classical types don’t rock. But what’s an “ancestral family” anyway? Well just hold on—I’ll reply—this is not really about music. By “ancestral family,” I mean your birth family two or three generations back. And the question’s really about whether there is some kind of organizing system that distributes roles and functions in that family over those several generations, and whether that system persists and is somehow still active even though various members may have died.

Boy, that’s a mouthful, you say. And this, I suppose, has something to do with this issue’s theme of  “lifestyle”? Well actually, yes—it does. What if, in a great many cases, very powerful influences on your adult lifestyles arise, not from your personal history, but rather from active, present-tense attachments to ancestors already long dead whom you may never have met. By influences I mean chronic problems (or sometimes uncanny good luck) with health, wealth, or relationships.

“Your Family Constellation coaching opened me up in a way I could not have imagined. I recommend what you offer to those looking to make positive changes in their life—especially when they find that something is inexplicably holding them back.   —Barry Epstein, Washington, DC  (More Testimonials)
