  1. My question has to do with modifying the recapitulation technique. I find that releasing everything all at once can be very disruptive. I have been experimenting with releasing at a slower rate to allow time for integration. Additionally, when reclaiming my power/energy back, I also fill the vacuum of what was released with a high spiritual ideal. Any comments, questions, or curses? Thanks.

    • Thanks for your comment. This is my reply: Since the recapitulation practices are procedures which help the energetic body to engage in the recapitulation dynamic (which is a natural capability we all have) “modifying” the recapitulation technique is actually an integral part of the “technique” and is generally acceptable, as long as we get beneficial results. Another way to speak about this is by saying that the general technique requires that the practitioners make the adjustments that work best for them. However, what I would recommend is to keep the essential parts: breathing – remembering – reliving – healing breathing – decision making and follow-up. Otherwise, we may get only a partial benefits that we may loose later. Now, in terms of your personal experience I think is great that you have taking the time and work that requires to find the rate or rhythm that works for you, plus you are mentioning “integration” which is is for sure a key concept. In recapitulation, doing things too fast can also make more difficult to “articulate” what we are doing, which in this case means that to be complete, the recapitulation should take place not only at the level of energy and emotions (which is critical) but also at the level of “understanding” what we are doing. This way, we have a complete process which includes both, the rational (tonal) and the energy body (nagual) parts are involved.

  2. This is the right site for anybody who wants to find out about this topic.
    You know a whole lot its almost hard to argue with you (not that I actually will need
    to…HaHa). You definitely put a brand new spin on a subject that’s been written about for decades.
    Great stuff, just wonderful!

  3. Hace como un año que empecé la recapitulacion siguiendo las técnicas que usted propone en el libro; pero no he logrado proyectar la pelicula ante mis ojos y que yo sea la espectadora (paso 4) generalmente revivo la situacion y continuo con la respiracion. No me siento ciento por ciento segura, si lo hago bien o no. Pude arreglar problemas de comunicacion con personas a las cuales recapitulé y esto me trajo mucha alegria. Llegô un momento que no pude continuar, me bloquié, es como si patinara y no logro salir de ahi, yo sé que tiene que ver con las experiencias traumâticas con mis padres. Pensé que era falta de energia para afrontar la verdad, entonces paré y me dediqué a ahorrar energia haciendo yoga y a través de esos ejercicios parar el dialogo interno. La verdad me da miedo y empiezo a temblar cuando sé que debo hacer la recapitulacion especialmente con papâ. Gracias por indicarme que podria hacer.

    • Hola Sara,

      Es normal no sentirse segura de estar recapitulando bien, porque los resultados son graduales y acumulativos, por lo que al principio no se sabe del resultado que se logrará; pero hay que seguir adelante. Lo que te va a ayudar mucho es que tengas claro el propósito de tu recapitulación: dejar atrás las formas desgastantes de relacionarte con esos eventos. Cada caso es distinto y no se si esto te sirva, pero intuitivamente te digo que quizá lo que mas te esté bloqueando no sean fallas “técnicas” en tu recapitulación, sino un posible apego interno a tu manera de mirar a tu padre. Esto porque los agravios que sufrimos, o los que creímos que sufrimos se pueden volver parte de nuestra identidad, por lo que para defender lo que creemos es nuestra identidad, necesitamos defender esos agravios. Pero hay una realidad mayor que necesitamos recuperar: esos agravios, esa historia y ese “yo” al que le tenemos tanto apego, no es nuestra naturaleza última. Nuestra naturaleza última es que somos un campo de energía con la posibilidad de expresarse o re-inventarse continuamente. Esa es nuestra libertad. Si aceptas esta premisa, distinta a la de la realidad ordinaria, tu recapitulación podría ser mas efectiva. Buena Suerte! V.S.
