More than a reading, this is a clinical process.
If partnerships are an open challenge to the maintenance of one’s uniqueness, families are directly and unavoidably oppressive with the demands of uniqueness, for obvious reasons.
We have all started in one, and most of us moved from the inherited one to the one we ourselves have created.
Life is deeply ironic in allowing us to see ourselves at the other end of the equation from when we were small and the ones being conditioned by our parents and siblings.
Now it is our turn to pass WHAT on to the next generation?
Being the fundamental social cell, families have always been the cornerstone of homogenization.
Without them, we would have never learned to see anything for ‘normal’. Isn’t that amazing?
When an individual is not perceived as ‘normal’, it immediately triggers suspicion and distrust in others, but when a family is not perceived as ‘normal’, the social scandal and potential social retaliation – expressed or not – is simply guaranteed.
It is in the name of the family, in the end, that we learn that sacrificing uniqueness in order to be accepted is the ‘most normal thing in the World’. It even has this spiritual something to it, doesn’t it?
The spirit of sacrifice (in the name of some higher Entity) colors the dogmas of every religion that has ever existed on this planet, and nowhere like in the family do their moral premises seem to become so self-evident.
A Family Reading has to start with an overall diagnosis established through the mechanical Analysis of the family’s Penta configuration. This is where the unique functionality of the family can be seen, without that meaning that every participant experiences being a part of it in the same way.
Essentially, it is a matter of using awareness to avoid that homogenization becomes a burden to the family life and to the individual development of each of its members.
Only when there is enough awareness in the group to deal respectfully with the individual demands of uniqueness is it possible to be enriched by the human experience of sharing the mundane plane together. If we manage to learn this within our own family, the impact of that experiment will continue through those who are grown into and mature through such an extraordinary environment.
