High toxicity in the body... this subject is very close to my heart. As a child, I was administered with a lot of antibiotics. Well, what do you do when your precious young daughter is struggling to breathe or has yet another debilitating ear infection that renders her bedbound?
Of course, it's another trip to the doctor who is already overwhelmed and struggling to help the ever-growing number of patients walking through the door each day. Wrestling with trying to individualise every person by offering some form of sympathy, when actually he/she is just severely worn down by the reality that this now has become a 'Game of Numbers', a mere production line of self-diagnosed bodies demanding answers.
You may have watched the series 'This Is going to Hurt' which highlights the struggles of doctors in our NHS hospitals. Personally, what really hit home was when one of the trainee doctors, Shruti played by Ambika Mod, was thrown into the deep end and slowly started to become more and more emotionally detached, just so she could cope with the high demands of her job.
I was lucky to be invited to a family constellation healing with Silvia Siret, based in Abingdon.
When I lived in Germany, I had a one-to-one family constellation session. At that time, the facilitator used pieces of paper to represent my family members.
To respect client confidentiality, I will only share a short snippet of what happened in Abingdon. I really do hope I am able to express how lucky I was to be part of the healing process.
There were approximately eight of us at the workshop. We started with a lovely welcome meditation to help us to relax and ease into the sacred space created by Silvia.
The next stage was to select the person for whom the healing would be done. This task is ascertained by the number of volunteers and the facilitator Silvia's, higher intuition. A few attendees had initially expressed their wishes for help with family issues, whether it be related to ancestral lineage or a one-off incident that occurred within the family tree that has carried its emotional burden forward to the present.
Once the person is selected, Silvia talks to them to discuss what had happened. Let's call the selected person Liz. Liz then has the task to pick someone from the group to represent a family member. This is done by Liz placing her hands on the other's shoulders and asking them to represent her 'mother' for example.
