Diving into the Self - Exploring Constellation Work

Part II

I am sitting in a nice house by the sea, interviewing Katrin Christina Scholz for the spiritual series about esoteric techniques in H2O Magazine.

I ask how she can describe the essence of her work. “Nothing happens by coincidence because everything is connected. Everything that happens makes sense. You just have to discover it,” she answers.
A couple of weeks ago I got a telephone call.
A friend told me to meet this 'german lady' who does 'these courses'. My friend couldn't describe exactly what the courses were about so, I thought to myself, this I definitely have to try!

Katrin has been working for ten years with a technique called Constellation Work.
It works by setting up the constellation of a system that a person wants to have clarity or explanation from work, family, business or personal issues. When I visited her, I wanted to have clarity about some relationships in my family.

“How do you want to feel afterwards?” Katrin asked me. “Well,” I said, “I would like to understand why things are how they are.” She started to ask me further questions about family members and history; and then we started to build the constellation.
As there were only the two of us we needed to choose 'representatives' for relatives, which in bigger settings would be other people in a group. In our case, Katrin asked me to put carpets in the room to represent people. In this way we could see how the represented people were relating to each other. Katrin went to the position of each carpet and felt the situations of the represented people. Then she analyzed how and why they feel like this, and in which relation they are towards each other.


“How can you describe your work in more detail?” I asked Katrin. “I am working with my intuition as well as with interpreting the constellation. The aim is that every represented person feels well in the way they relate to each other in the end. So, theoretically the problem of a group, family or issue can be solved by re-setting the relationships and making them aware of the person who came with the problem.”
“How does this work? Why can you change a constellation when only one person is present and the others absent?” I wanted to know. “Any system is like a mobile. Every part is connected and dependent on each other. When you change one part, the others naturally need to change as well,” Katrin explained.

 

While watching the procedure of the re-modelling of the relationship constellations, you might suddenly realize a pattern you have, where it came from and how you could overcome it. “The workshop enables an understanding of a possible structure behind someone's own behavior related to where the person is coming from; it can be family, experience or unreflected personal beliefs.” Katrin explained.
When I saw my own family system as a momentary situation in front of me, I understood why there were conflicts, and also how to solve them.

“When you felt how the people I wanted to be represented feel, how could you do that? Where is this information coming from?” I asked her. “One explanation could be based on the research of the Biologist Rupert Sheldrake. He developed the theory about morphogenetic fields. He found, for example, that an ape learned the skill to open a coconut. The other apes were learning through imitation the same skill. When a bigger group of apes were able to manage this new behavior, the scientists observed apes on a nearby island, without physical connection to the group of 'skilled apes', who suddenly opened the coconut in the same way.

Their explanation is, that the 'knowledge' has been transported through an energy field, and as soon as one ape is getting this information and practicing it, the others will learn it through imitation again and the skill spreads. This field of science is very interesting and complex. If you are interested, you can visit Rupert Sheldrake's website and get further information,” explained Katrin.
I left Katrin's place with the question 'What can I do to make it work out?' and already felt that the solution was near. Once again I was being confronted with an old and simple wisdom; I understood that it is me, and my attitude, that can change. I am the part of the mobile who makes the system move!
