Every system – that is, our family, professional milieu, social milieu, or the organisations to which we belong – is a field of force, a Makam within which we live and evolve. Taking the example of our family system: when we are born, each of us occupies a place in this family system and receives from his or her parents and ancestors not only a hereditary, genetic heritage, but also an ensemble of beliefs, thought schemas, and behavioral schemas. All of these schemas have a determining influence on our way of living, thinking, and feeling. They have either a positive or negative influence on our ability to feel ourselves free and act freely, to be happy or unhappy, to succeed or fail in our undertakings. They influence our state of health and well-being and are the cause of our illnesses, and they are often responsible for our positive or conflictual relationships with other people and the world.
Working with Family Constellations and Systemic Representations, we begin to understand these schemas at their most profound level. Subsequently, through the Family Constellations and Systemic Representations or other specific techniques, we can learn to liberate ourselves from the schemas that limit us or are the cause of our problems. Each family system (field of force or Makam) is determined by the entire past of our family, parents, and ancestors, as well as by their own thought schemas, beliefs, religion, nationality, and ethnicity. This field of force is imprinted particularly strongly by all of the significant and decisive events that occurred in the lives of our parents and ancestors.
