The Healing Art of Creative Constellations

The Net of Indra is a profound and subtle metaphor for the structure of reality. Imagine a vast net; at each crossing point there is a jewel; each jewel is perfectly clear and reflects all the other jewels in the net, the way two mirrors placed opposite each other will reflect an image ad infinitum. The jewel in this metaphor stands for an individual being, or an individual consciousness, or a cell or an atom. Every jewel is intimately connected with all other jewels in the universe, and a change in one jewel means a change, however slight, in every other jewel.
— Stephen Mitchell

Indra’s net is a symbol of the process Jadina integrates into the sessions and based on the dynamics of the Systemic Constellation work inspired by Bert Hellinger, the International Focusing Process, a technique taught by Gene Gendlin, and the original thought lived by Indigenous Peoples connected to the sacred intelligence of the earth. Also included is the understanding of the creative process and how this can be applied not only to projects, but to life. Bert Hellinger worked with the Zulu tribes of Africa, learned their ways of living, and then brought this learning to the West. He writes that each family system has a conscience that requires that all members be connected and remembered in a particular way.


If someone in the system is not remembered correctly then younger members, out of love, or the need to belong, can become "entangled" with their ancestors, particularly with those who have been excluded, forgotten or shunned, or have experienced a difficult fate. Unconscious entanglements are behind many of the issues that are explored in these constellations. Our entanglements with our ancestors can form knots – sacred knots – that can be untangled and eased by being brought to consciousness in Creative Constellation work.

In consciousness there are more possibilities than in unconsciousness.
— Llewellyn Vaughn-Lee

When coming together to participate in any real work we create a temporary sacred site. This attention to sacred sites is needed in the world today to help the healing of humanity. By being with the problems, confusions, joys, and sorrows as sacred, this knot, now in the light of consciousness, becomes a magnet for a healing presence, opening up more possibilities for being alive. Energetically our family and ancestors are still with us. We can work energetically across time to change how they interact. 

It is part of a family tree. We are continuously living the ancestral life, reaching back for centuries, we are satisfying the appetites of unknown ancestors, nursing instincts which we think are our own, but which are quite incompatible with our character; we are not living our own lives, we are paying the debts of our forefathers.
— Carl Jung

When looked at consciously, constellations will show what the difficulty looks like now, and the entanglements that are causing lack of vitality and movement. By witnessing this, your perception and experience shifts revealing the connections that are always there, remembering inspiration and creativity as a way of life.
