This is a test run of me using the blog feature on my website to create an interactive tool. Below is your first "assignment". Read through the material below and then write your own response. We'll see if we can work within the comments section as a way to share our experiences, comment on each others words, and learn together. Write as much or as little as you want. Ask a question. If this works, it will be where I post the weekly practice lesson. Below is the first lesson. Please comment so we can see how this works.
Becoming Aware of Your Personal Sphere of Energy
It is exciting to think about gathering a group of people toghether to learn and study the deeper process and mysteries of Family Constellation Work.
It begins simply.
Begin to practice scanning the energy field of your own body and immediate surroundings. Have you ever walked into a room full of people and just sensed that this place was not for you? Have you ever had a flash of "knowing" that doesn't come from the mind but from some other place?
One of the first and ongoing goals of Constellation Work is learning to set your mind and experience aside and to open yourself to a wider field of knowlege. It is not easy. We are somtimes no better than trained puppies. Something out there in the world triggers us and we are jumping all over the place. Often, our reactions are not consistent or congruent with who we are on the inside. We "know better" than to just jump into reaction, but our brains are faster than our soul's response.
Think of a time over the last week or two where you did a "jump to" response to some trigger without even a second to consider why you were reacting. Think through that experience and replay it in your mind but slow it way down. See if you can discover more about that response . . . and how you could have done it differently.
