This information is offered as a suggestion and is not a pre-requisite for you attending a constellation. It may support you to receive the most out of the day. During a Family Constellation day it may happen that not everyone does their own personal constellation and I ask that you trust the process of what work needs to come, comes. I never know what the work will be until it happens on the day. What I usually notice and hear is that by participating in someones' constellation or witnessing someone's work as a group member, the answer to your own work is found. We are all connected and often one person's work is another's work as well.
Being a representative does not involve acting in any way and it's also not role playing. It's standing in a particular person’s position or as a symtpom and experiencing the representation of whatever it is you are representing. You simply voice the sensations, feelings and impulses that spontaneously arise in you. This is a very experiential experience that is understood once you have been in this position. Your mind will automatically want to turn this experience into a logical and understandable situation and may say things like; "I'm just making this up" or "This is crazy and I feel stupid". Until, you have the experience of saying something that has an impact on someone in the constellation or to the seeker of the constellation. This is a very normal reaction to something that is a new experience which doesn't have any validation for you yet.
