At this time, I will state that I am not a professional and may not be held liable for any negative effects which might occur from the performance of this technique. Also, no success may be guaranteed.
The recapitulation technique has been utilized by those who’ve wished to remove current influences of prior trauma from their consciousness. For those who may choose to employ it, the technique may have both some particular and special effects. All of its’ different influences are related to one another.
Some potential effects:
It may diminish the burden of recurrent memories and influences from prior trauma.
It may allow for various “forgotten” memories to resurface.
It may assist in reducing effects from PTSD and reverse Cognitive Dissociative Disorder.
It may help to remove a “build-up” of habitualized thought & energy patterns (which may have been previously enforced via wrongful and/or toxic impressions).
It may reduce the unnecessarily premature onset of certain types of aging.
Note that if any further degree of explanation is desired, feel free to contact me.
Generally, there are two ways in which to engage the technique. One is to start by making a list of all the negative memories one can readily recall. Once this has been accomplished, one may use the technique on each of the offending memories; crossing them out, afterwards.
The second is to simply wait for a bad memory to appear in your consciousness and utilize the technique at that moment.
Once a memory is present, allow it to “live” in your consciousness for a few moments, holding it there. Turn your head to the right. While breathing in, turn your head more slowly to the left. When doing this, you are seeking to pull the “energy” of the memory back to you. After this, breathe out while slowly turning your head back to the right, allowing your attachment to this memory to be released (to God, the Void, etc.). This “pass” should be done as many times as one feels necessary to feel it was successfully accomplished.
After these breathing passes are complete, your head will again be facing to the right. Without breathing, now turn your head (either slowly or quickly) once more to the left, then back to the right, then back to center. This final, breathless pass closes the ritual. It is important not to exclude it.
After awhile, other forgotten memories may begin to surface. Assuming that they are “negative,” deal with them in the same way. After that (or perhaps more quickly), older memories may also begin to appear. These are often non-traumatic, good or neutral. You may not know how it was you’d forgotten them, but they may suddenly “appear” in your consciousness. By this point, your life will already have begun to change.
After some span of time, negatively-impacting memories and/or associations begin
to fill up a “space” in our consciousness. This space is directly linked to the “Akasha” (a Sanskrit word) or “collective unconscious,” but on a more individualized and also limited level. Every ingrained association becomes attached to this personal space of “free” energy we all possess. Once an association of previous disturbance gets “logged in,” as it were, it stands in the way of a free flow of information between the conscious and non-conscious parts of our mind. Like an onion peel, these moments of memory may begin as a small percentage of our overall “energy.” Then, other related moments get wrapped up with them. This arrangement is part of why, as we get older, we begin to age more quickly. Our consciousness usually has direct effects and influences upon our bodies.
In performing the technique, one is freeing this limited space from attachment to certain negative associations. Any time a “bad” memory enters into your consciousness (often, many times), seemingly out of nowhere, a possibility to address it is presented. The way I think most appropriate and intrinsically natural to do this is with the recapitulation technique.
This technique is partially based on some of the previous writings and interviews of Carlos Castaneda, as well as those whom he’d trained in this knowledge.
