The element “dynamics within constellations” or “group dynamics” is the practice of taking one of the previous elements “gestalt or contextual constellation” one step further. The latter consists of taking groups and constellations into existential awareness. The former is about taking the present moment occurring dynamics within the constellation into awareness. Taking group dynamics into awareness is not necessarily the same as directly interfering, manipulating or trying to control the dynamics. However the very practice of taking the dynamics into awareness has an inherent positive effect on the dynamics for several reasons.
The chosen commitment or the spontaneous response of using our conscious awareness to embrace a certain constellation and dedicate our open-hearted and panoramic sentience to all the visible and invisible dynamics that are operating in the constellation, delivers our contribution for
- placing it all in the Light of the Neutral Observer and
- opening the window (or channel) for the the harmonizing, uplifting, educating, enlightening, and healing infusion of the Higher Consciousness.
- In addition to this the IP practice invites us to comply with our heart’s intelligence in responding (acting or not acting) to the dynamics.
By the art of this practice, it is our ego that attempts to control the dynamics yet we invest all the limited, yet effective, influence we truly have on the dynamics to support the highest possible evolution of the dynamics.
How this concretely works can take on million different forms. There is no one best way to go about it. The best possible approach is completely situational and present moment reality dependent. There does not exist one all-encompassing method that is applicable for all possible situation in all times. The creative heart-mind-gut’s intelligence of the present moment spontaneous inner truth will probably provide for the best shot. And practicing IP sets us up for having access to that present moment original wisdom and empowers us to express it through action or being.
One possible way of observing the dynamics in a constellation is looking at it through the inclusion lens.
