Patiently she explained that the recapitulation is the act of calling back the energy we have already spent in past actions. To recapitulate entails recalling all of the people we have met, all of the places we have seen, and all the feelings we have had in our entire lives; starting from the present and going back to the earliest memories; then sweeping them clean, one by one, with the sweeping breath. ~ Taisha Abelar,The Sorcerer’s Crossing: A Woman’s Journey
Recapitulation is the ability to completely release the energies that keep you bound to specific incidences in your life oftentimes causing you to be trapped within a vicious cycle of replaying repetitive and draining emotional conflict. The continually rehashing of these patterns over and over again causes your life force energy to be constantly wasted as you replay these outmoded patterns of behavior.
Inner silence works from the moment you begin to accrue it. The desired result is what the old sorcerers called “stopping the world”, the moment when everything around us ceases to be what it’s always been. This is the moment when sorcerers return to the true nature of man. The old sorcerers called it total freedom. ~ Carlos Castaneda ~The Active Side of Infinity
The vision quest is an amazing commitment that gently guides one outside of their comfort zone and effectively shifts the assemblage point. Vision quest pushes one to move beyond themselves to connect intimately and deeply with Mother Earth and the Infinite Mystery. Every indigenous culture has performed some type of vision quest from Jesus and Buddha, Shaman and Medicine People, Indigenous Peoples and American Indians up to modern day men and women from all countries and all walks of life. The vision quest is an opportunity to connect with profound silent knowledge, including heartfelt inner truth and insight, typically done alone, in a remote natural setting and has been practiced for many thousands of years.
