Recapitulation is a method, a self-directed discipline, a self empowering technique that enables an individual to repair damage in their own energy bodies. This includes the damage and energy drain that comes from soul loss or soul fragmentation, mental complexes, attachments and addictions, attachments by entities living or deceased and from deliberate psychic attacks.
That said, it is not a cure all. Rather it is a healing process. There are times when it is most effective when combined with other healing processes such as shamanic soul retrieval, spirit releasement, traditional counseling, etc. One big advantage of recapitulation is that it is practiced solo and is, therefore, empowering to the individual. Another advantage is that it is based on energy work rather than analysis or talk therapy.
Recapitulation is a method of recovering the power and energy that we have given away to people, places, and things. This technique recognizes that we have luminous energy "filaments" or aka cords extending from ourselves to others. These connections, energy filaments or aka cords form when we direct our attention and energy outward. They also form when others place their attention and energy on us. Such connections often involve some mutual intent or agreement between ourselves and others. It is the objective then to recognize and inventory these energy connections, decide which ones to keep or cultivate, and which ones are not in our best interest. We can then manage our energy connections, stop parasitic energy drains and recover stagnant energy. We thereby free our energy body and make it mobile.
Recapitulation breaks the basic assumptions that we have accepted throughout our lives. As long as those assumptions remain intact, our memories of our past and the energy they contain can cloud our lives.
This recapitulation process was initially described in The Eagle's Gift by Carlos Castaneda and refined by Victor Sanchez. Sanchez's refinements, techniques, experiences and perspectives are described in his book, The Toltec Path of Recapitulation: Healing Your Past to Free Your Soul . This technique has been used with good results by many who have taken this course.
The techniques summarized here are derived from those described by these authors with simplification and modification. The major modifications are the practice of assessing appropriateness through meditation and the use of forgiveness.
The Recapitulation Lists
The first step is to make lists. The list is primarily of the meaningful events of your life. It is intended to direct one to remember and relive past events, to help us recover hidden memories and to help us discern what the significant events of our life really are. A few of the types of events to include in the list includes:
We can resolve lists into roughly three categories. One is personal experiences involving other physical or non-physical persons or beings with which we have some kind of energetic relationship. The second is personal experiences involving groups or collectives like religions, governments, regulating or controlling organizations, etc. with which we have some kind of energetic relationship. The third group is personal experiences from which we have any sense of guilt.
It is important to recognize that healthy relationships with friends, family members and others are not something that you should feel compelled to extract energy from or sever the ties with. Eventually, one walks alone, but along the way positive loving and compassionate experiences and relationships enrich the soul and contribute to Spiritual evolution.
Also recognize that you are not looking to recapitulate trivial details. You are looking for events and experiences that hold a lot of unresolved energy. Remember that the purpose of living on this plane is to gain experience, make choices, learn from choices and acquire wisdom and understanding. Recapitulation is not supposed to replace or substitute for our process of learning the lessons of life. Rather, it is meant to be used as a healing process, to correct the effects of injuries to our energetic body.
After making the list, take the time to evaluate, reflect and choose carefully those items that merit recapitulation. Forgiveness of self and others should often be used before or with recapitulation. It is important to be thorough when working in an area or category. Take your time and concentrate deeply.
The Recapitulation Zone
In Sanchez's directions, the recapitulation exercises are conducted while sitting in a wooden box especially constructed for this work. At the end of the work, the box is burned as a final release. The box serves a number of purposes.
While the box is a powerful aid, recapitulation can be accomplished without it. If not using a box, select a place and time when you will be undisturbed to do the work. Draw a circle around yourself to define an energy boundary in which you work. The intent is to compress your own energy within the circle and exclude external distractions.
The most important aspect of this endeavor is Intent. You "Intend" the recovery of energy with your inhalation. You "Intend" the rejection of others energy filaments with your exhalation.
You should sit comfortably in a chair or on a pillow. It is recommended that you make your recapitulation sessions an hour or more in length. You can do shorter ones or ones involving only one list item if that meets your needs.
Appropriateness and Forgiveness
After making the lists, select an item and listen through meditation to assess the most appropriate action. If the forgiveness exercise is most appropriate, apply it and, if needed, do the recapitulation process. There may be some experiences or energetic connections that do not need forgiveness but should be recapitulated. There may also be energetic connections that should be retained for a while longer. Rely on your own inner direction to determine appropriate action.
Not all energy connections need to be recapitulated or cut. The importance of carefully evaluating which connections to change and the effectiveness of the technique is illustrated by this experience shared by one of the class participants.
Recapitulation of the Energy from Trauma
This procedure is derived from Sanchez's book.
(1) When you are in position begin breathing as follows:
Repeat this pattern several times, until you feel ready to begin.
(2) Take the item from your list that you have decided to recapitulate and remember it fully from the observer perspective.
(3) Now replay the event again while reliving the emotions and feelings of it. Suspend analysis, judgment, and thinking while doing this. The objective is to remember the feelings and bodily reactions as a feeling experience without analysis.
(4) Now replay the event one more time from the observer perspective.
As you do so repeat the breathing technique from (1) while you visually draw back all of the energy that you have invested in that situation.
(5) Assimilate the recovered energy leaning forward, pressing your abdomen tightly against your thighs. Reach under your knees and pull your thighs against your abdomen. Inhale through your mouth and exhale through your nostrils in short bursts, contracting the abdominal muscles with each burst. Do this no more than four times at first. Then sit upright, breathe in slowly through the nostrils and blow slowly with mouth. You will notice a feeling of lightness and well being, as this exercise allows you to access the Recapitulated energy throughout your luminous body.
(6) Accept and Affirm your new reality verbally. Formulate an invocation of your new reality and speak it verbally and loudly.
(7) Mentally visualize your new reality as manifesting in your life.
(8) Take physical action that is based on or builds on your new reality.
Recapitulation of Energy Connections
For energy attachments extending from others to you; to release promises or agreements that are binding you; to release your own behaviors or emotional routines; or to release your own attachments to others, use the following breathing procedure:
(1) The preparation is the same as the previous exercise. The breathing pattern is different as follows:
(2) Assimilate the recovered energy leaning forward, pressing your abdomen tightly against your thighs. Reach under your knees and pull your thighs against your abdomen. Inhale through your mouth and exhale through your nostrils in short bursts, contracting the abdominal muscles with each burst. Do this no more than four times at first. Then sit upright, breathe in slowly through the nostrils and blow slowly with mouth. You will notice a feeling of lightness and well being, as this exercise allows you to access the Recapitulated energy throughout your luminous body.
(3) Accept and Affirm your new reality verbally. Formulate an invocation of your new reality and speak it verbally and loudly.
(4) Mentally visualize your new reality as manifesting in your life.
(5) Take physical action that is based on or builds on your new reality.
Simplified Recapitulation Procedure
A quick and simplified procedure can be done as follows:
This quick and simple technique can be used for self defense, either psychic or physical, when applied correctly and appropriately with stong intent.

The future is created in our minds. When we look forward into the future, it is sometimes wise to make some astute assessments and change course.
Science and technology are not good or evil but can be used for both. Who are we? What are we? What are we doing here? What are the secrets of life? Central to these questions is our connection to religion and Spirituality. The core is Spiritual faculties, psychic abilities, paranormal abilities, psi. How they are developed, suppressed, used or misused determines what we become; a dumb lump of flesh or a brilliant enlightened being.
