  2. Recap is really the best tool, most of the time. With the recap, your own intent and work will release other people's energy within your own energy, release patterns, and recover energy stuck elsewhere. That usually does the job well, even for difficult and traumatic events, though it can require a good amount of work. Once in a while, there are issues with self-healing through recap, where other tools, or a shamanic healing would be better. -karl
  3. Break the agreements and recap is the way to go. Stalk yourself to a different position and, if possible, remove them from your life... but we can't always kick our boss at work to the curb
  4. thank you Karl , what if it was a person inflicting energetic damage to myself how do i heal or remove any energetic hooks ? thank you
  5. My take: Energy debt is when, though a process of actions or manipulation, you have inflicted or caused somebody else to take some course where they have suffered some sort of harm or created issues for themselves they otherwise would not have where they got hurt. This is a serious thing, not an everyday or casual problem, and not simply somebody taking advice and ending up having made a mistake. Some examples where you might create energetic debt: 1) inflicting energetic damage, 2) misleading somebody, 3) manipulating somebody, 4) using somebody for your own benefit, etc. You get the idea. Note that intent is a key part of this. Making a mistake where something goes wrong doesn't mean you have a debt, although it could. Sometimes you give the best advice you can, but it ends up going wrong - nobody's perfect. Giving bad advice when you know better, or misleading somebody, especially for your own benefit would create debt. When this situation arises, you have an energetic tie, a negative balance. Removing the debt isn't a matter of recapping it, because in a sense you've unbalanced some scales. You have to right the energetic scales, if you can, between you and the person involved. Sometimes that's not possible, and you have to find another way to make things better, if you can. It's usually pretty difficult. Again, this isn't anything like karma. It's something personal. -karl
  6. what is an actual energy debt ? how do we remove them ? thank you

  8. OH my gosh, I don't think you're doing anything wrong at all. I'm sure it's common to have multiple spirit animals. I have a few for sure. Dogs in groups, a particular horse, manta rays and a grey wolf show up often in my dreams - always the very symbolic dreams. The dogs often protect, the horse leading to somewhere and the mantarays or small stingrays are usually affectionate or seem to be connected with hope. The wolf is often in the water as odd as that sounds. It also feels like the most natural thing in the world to fly. I also connected with wolves at a very young age.
  9. Yes - almost. When you realize you are in the dream, instead of engaging in the narrative, use the breath and head turning to recover the energy, the emotional energy in the dream. Let's say the emotion is shame. Focus on the triggering event and 'inhale' the energy of that, the shame or whatever emotion or mixture of emotions are there. Inhale it as you turn your head to the left and then pause and exhale all that out with the intention of recovering 'what is yours and releasing anything that is not yours.' Repeat that until the memory has no emotional pull to it. "I would say that the experience of the drama brings my focus to this narrative and without it I wouldn't know what to focus on. I didn't clarify in my first post that the intention to go into the nature of my relationship with my mother wasn't my intention for the meditation I did. My intention was to heal myself of depression. Then this experience came up in my dreaming." Right, this is what can happen when you intend to self-heal, your energy starts to show you all the ways, all the threads that are connected to that intent to heal. Your task as a recapper, whether in dreaming or on the awake side, is to track down all those threads and start recovering the energy of what shows up for you because somehow, it's connected although it may not be obvious at first. So, it looks like there may be a connection with your depression and your relationship with your mother. If you recover the energy from the experiences with your mother, other things will probably show up in your continued intent to work on depression. It can get quite complex and tanglds but you can get through it all and recover everything connected with your depression. The beautiful thing about this practice is that once you recover all of the connections, it will truly be healed and should not return. (Although learned patterns from depression can try to reassert themselves but that's another thing and is easier to deal with).
  10. Hi Silenceseeker, Thank you for your response. Just to clarify further, do you mean when I realise i'm in the dream instead of engaging in the narrative to use the breath and the head turning movements to move the energy of the dream? I would say that the experience of the drama brings my focus to this narrative and without it I wouldn't know what to focus on. I didn't clarify in my first post that the intention to go into the nature of my relationship with my mother wasn't my intention for the meditation I did. My intention was to heal myself of depression. Then this experience came up in my dreaming. I feel like the next logical step might be to hold a ceremony with the intention to go into this experience further then see if it comes up in my dreaming again and if it does try to do the recap techniques you mentioned?
  11. Hi Tipt, Yes you can recap in dreaming and in fact, it's usually very effective if you can mange it because a lot of our repressed emotions and memories are stored on the dreaming side, this is where the go. I like what you are doing with the meditation ceremony with intention, the only thing I would change is that as you are focusing on the experiences, instead of exploring the drama, use the breath and head turning movement of the basic recap exercise to take out the emotional energy from those memories, repeat the process until they are 'just' memories. You will definitely know when you've accomplished this because when you recall them, they won't have the same pull that they always have and you will find your life adjusting accordingly. With regards to the makers recapping in dreaming, the process is actually the basic exercise (or other ones learned here) that are done while you are asleep and dreaming. It requires you to realize you are dreaming and have the awareness to start the recap process within a sleep dream. So, it's a little tricky to manage sometimes and there are other ways to get at the emotions in memories but it can be very effective because you are working with the place where they have been stored.
  12. Hi, I've read through the content of this website and I wonder if there's any thoughts on combining what is called recapitulation here and dreaming? Can you recapitulate in the dream space. Example I do a meditation / ceremony using drumming with an intention. I then have what I call a dream drama. Where a drama in my normal life, in this case i'm going to use the example of my relationship to my mother and the energies within that relationship are expressed in the dream. The drama or narrative plays out then I find myself in my room connected to my physical body but still in a trance/dreamlike state and there's a vibration on my body that when focused on becomes tense and painful until I focus on it and am able to move this vibration off my body. As I explore these experiences and try to bring cohesion to them I find that experiences like these definitely do affect the nature of the relationships or the drama that's playing out in my normal life. According to your traditions or understandings could this be an example of a combination of what you call recapitulation and dreaming?
  13. Um, AbusedBella, you say you've done your research on this, how did you research? Google doesn't count!
  14. I too have always seen a wolf in my dreams but as of recently because of my past i also have a lion as my spirit animal. I have done my research on this: What does the wolf mean in your dream? The wolf itself can be a representation of support from others in regards to a problem that you are encountering in daily life. The Wolf dream itself can either be positive or negative in nature and can often represent certain aspects of yourself - such as communication and having a “pack” of people to rely on. The dream often symbolizes your own attitudes towards others and can be a representation of your own personality. If we look at the 1930s dream psychologist such as Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung believed that dreaming of wolves was a direct result of the images presented to us in the waking world. Wolf’s are generally represented in movies and on television as negative influences. Jung believed that archetypes can appear in our dreams and that all living animals were part of these symbols. This term “archetypes” is used to describe the human psyche. Jung believed that the wolf was connected to our inner motivations of living in groups and hidden aggression. I can conclude this dream is connected to our “Anima” archetype. There are twelve archetypes divided into the soul, self, and ego and it could be seen as a connection between good and bad, male and female and wild and tame in nature. In this case, the wolf’s traits could be dominating your subconscious mind and your personality. Additionally, the wolf can be connected to your current mindset and signify your wild side of life and even your own sexuality and sexual needs. Carl Jung and Freud did not cover that much about the wolf in their writings but associated them with the animal part of our nature. As the wolf is focused on living in packs this dream indicates that we need to look at coordinating the bonds with those around us. To dream of wild dogs indicates that your emotions or feelings have been challenged. If you are chased by a wolf or a pack of wolves, this indicates you may suffer some depression in the future. The wolf in dreams can indicate that you feel “included” in life as the wolves are clever and know how to survive and work together in packs. This is a majestic animal that can appear in our dreams with a key message: you can rely on others. Wolves communicate through grunting and howling and the wolf is part of the canine family. To dream of a wolf can indicate you have the durability to progress in life. In order to fully understand what this dream means we need to look at the key elements of wolfs. In my research wolves collectively demonstrate the following meaning in dreams: exclusion, communication, drawing attention to aggressive people in your life, reflections on your own behavior, protection and finally teamwork to destroy. I’m Flo and I have studied wolves from a Jungian perspective. For twenty years I have been writing dream meanings so to make it easy for you I have segmented this dream into specific categories. Just scroll down to find your dream. What does the wolf mean in your dream?

As the wolf is focused on living in packs this dream indicates that we need to look at coordinating the bonds with those around us. What is the detailed dream interpretation of seeing a wolf? Dreaming of a pet wolf is a positive omen, and represents happy times ahead. The loyalty connected to wolves suggests that in dreams the wolf can help protect us. Putting this simply, you have friends around who will provide you with loyalty and love. Seeing multiple wolves in your dream suggest great damage. Killing a wolf means that you will get rid of an enemy. If you dream that you have been bitten by a wolf, denotes that real life someone will make you cross and annoyed. If you hear a wolf howling in your dream, this means you must be wary of thieves, or someone who may rob you. Generally, a wolf in your dreams could also suggest hidden enemies. If in your dream the wolf attacks you, this indicates danger in waking life. If you fight with the wolf it means you will succeed in life. If a shepherd is attacked by a wolf in a dream this foretells big sorrow in your family. A wolf with an open mouth denotes that your enemies are overwhelming you. Spirit animal wise: The power of the wolf spirit animal serves as a guide for you to trust your instincts and pay attention to what they’re trying to tell you. Wolf symbolism brings forth intelligence, loyalty, freedom, and social connections, and demonstrating them in a more balanced manner. The wolf totem symbolizes a high level of intelligence and a deep connection with your instincts, just like the husky totem. A wolf being present in your dreams or in your meditations is telling you to rely on your intelligence to resolve a problematic situation, or use it more often in your daily dealings. The wolf meaning is also that of a pathfinder. You can depend on your wolf spirit animal whenever you feel lost, misguided, or deceived. If you have the wolf as your spirit animal, you are being encouraged to trust in your instinct and intuition more. When you’re surrounded by so much noise and activity, it can be good to be quiet and just listen to what your gut is trying to tell you. Your wolf totem can help you become more aware of your emotional state and point you to the things that are causing emotional imbalance. The wolf symbolism urges you to pay attention to your inner voices because they will help you make sense of things and point you towards the right direction. The meaning of the wolf also resonates with your desire for freedom and independence. You can function well in a group, or in a ‘pack’, but you can also flourish when you are on your own. The wolf is a powerful animal that loves to communicate, and it has unending loyalty. Just like yourself, the wolf can also be very social and very family-oriented at the same time. Someone told me i also have the spirt of the lions courage.....But i dont know how to put this together..................help!
  15. Dear Lorrie, I just came across this topic. I was wondering how one's healing intent plays out in situations like this, situations as in other ppl's conflicted intents. in other words how can one move against/through resistance of others like that, to create an opening for healing possibilities?
  16. Yes exactly, rare in the sense that everything is possible but it's probably not likely, it could happen but that would be a very unusual event involving a very rarely encountered entity and you would probably 'know' if that happened. As far as re-inserting the piece and reintegration, actually, the act of retrieving it would amount to reintegration. It's 'simply' a matter of acknowledging that it's your energy and you have a right to it, no one or no entity or anything else does - no matter what they might tell you. We don't have public exercise for retrieving the energy but we are about to start two classes that might help if you wanted to go more in depth on the process - Spirals - which deals with how to handle your own intent and retrieve unwanted intents and Recapitulation - which deals with recovering energy from the past. We have the basic Recapitulation exercise on the site here: https://www.shamanscave.com/self-healing/the-recapitulation which you can use to recover energy from memories and emotions connected with losing the energy. The class takes this basic exercise and builds on a number of different ways to energy stuck in your past. So, the biggest questions for you is why did you allow this and what circumstances were involved in creating this situation. This all can be recovered and reintegrated to make your energy more balanced and therefore much less likely to happen again.
  17. Thank you for quick responsiveness! I really appreciate it. Rarely meaning its possible but in most cases not? I do hope thats not what happened to me. As for entities stealing energy, i’ve always envisioned having to fight them back for it, but to know its that simple to reclaim stolen pieces is a relief. I’d also like to mention that the ‘piece’ im referring to is actually mental one, so it’s quite big. Could it be that removing it from myself then re-inserting it can trigger a reintegration process? Sorry for so many questions!
  18. Hi Doograham, I'm not familiar with galactic core or perhaps know it by another name, human pool comes to mind. I do know that your energy is rarely, if ever gone forever in this life. Also, negative energies generally can't take your energy without some agreement from you. The good news is that you can intend to take your energy back, how easy that is can depend upon a number of things - the willingness to face your role in giving it away, your acceptance that no one has a right to your energy, it is yours to take back and how much of 'you' you gave away.
  19. So recently I tried cleansing a soul fragment of mine by sending it to the galactic core for some clearing, but afterwards my left body started to feel a little empty and dissociative after asking my Higher Self to bring back the “piece”. I read online that the galactic core destroys souls, although im not sure if that counts souls embodying physical bodies. Is it gone forever? My other theory is that it could have been stolen by a negative entity? If that’s the case, are they easy to retrieve back?

    Hi TonyaJo, I would encourage you to find your own meaning in the energy of your experience. It’s really easy nowadays to find information on the internet (about pretty much anything!) but i think that it can short-change us and our potential to draw from our own innate knowing. -cammie

    Shamanic Journey

    Today was my first experience with this type of healing process, I had some visions, power animal came to me in the shape as a raven, in the middle realm I saw a ship sink and a whale emerge from the water and blow showers of light from his blow hole, I also saw lavendar oil and my upper realm everyone was in white except for a female glowing entity that was completely glowing gold positive energy, would anyone care to elaborate or have any insight. Much Love, Tonya
  22. I only try to channel my own energy but sometimes I try to reach out with my own energy. I'm not sure if that is active or passive.
  23. The "dragon" (let's call it that) need not be negative. 1. It may be an entity (and thus, it may be trying to protect you or show you something). 2. It may be symbolic (e.g. represent something you need to do). From the information you've given, I suspect the latter. The trick now it to find out what it represents. Only you can know that. I found your comment on meditation interesting. If your mediation is passive, then it is almost impossible to "do something wrong" (although it may bring out negative emotions or thoughts, which can then be examined and dealt with). If the meditation is active (meaning you are trying to call/activate an entity or energy), then yes, care should be taken. Hope this helps and good luck.
  24. Spiritual healing is go through your inner spirit or your soul
  25. Was an interesting read, not sure if it's any help though. Luckily the presence is already getting less and I'm kind of accustomed to it now. I'm pretty sure that I did something while meditating that I wasn't supposed to do or maybe I was doing it wrong. When I think about it this way that eye changes back into that inner smile. I'm practicing to create something like a healing aura by concentrating on my heart chakra. I try opening it as much as I can, letting the energy flow and radiate through my whole body. Not sure if it works but sometimes it feels like it works. I often try to connect to the one I care most about with that same energy and I think that was the problem. This seems to have attracted this being. It kind of feels like that that being is part of my higher self. I can also feel the eye connected to my 3rd eye chakra.
  26. One time when I was in a deep meditative state I heard this voice say my name with tonality. Very strange because usually my thoughts are without tonality and this voice did not have my inflection or tonality. Still haven't figured out what to make of it, but I'm following some breadcrumbs which will I know will unravel into understanding it eventually. There have been very few other times after that one where I've got experiences almost approaching it, but only audible enough to hear sound without being audible enough to make meaning out of it. These other times were in lighter meditative states, so my guess is it has to do with a specific state of consciousness that I sometimes fall into where I let go in this extreme way where I almost fall out of traditional existence. I haven't quite figured out how to operate the controls to this altered state of consciousness, but I'll describe what it feels like and maybe you will find it useful or can make some sense out of it. Part of the feeling is not being grounded it my identity. Almost like the feeling of blackout that comes when I drank to that point in the past. I noticed this feeling because when I heard my name the first time it shocked me out of the deep meditative state. There was this absolute stillness that I was inseparable from. There was no separation that comes from experiencing the flesh. Like I know the boundaries on physical form through the sensations that tell me the boundaries. The hairs on my skin rustling in the air and the skins tensions, temperatures, and other sensations clearly defining those boundaries between me and not me. So none of these sensations were present, yet I also still felt my existence. It was not through my mind which is how I normally experience my existence. I normally experience myself through my mind's point of view. The sensations are felt then interpreted, acknowledged, and described through my mind most of the time. So aside from the lack of physical, mental, etc sensations there was also this experience of beforehand of the meditation technique starting to operate on it's own. The technique is called Vipassana and it works like this in it's most basic form, you start at the top of your head and do body scanning from that point down to your shoulders, each arm, torso, each leg, then back up in the opposite way you went down, like if you went down your left then right leg then go up your right leg then left leg then torso then right arm then left arm etc. So normally I do the technique by maintaining my awareness of the point of my body that I am currently scanning, eg top of the head, holding equanimity, allowing the sensation to come and go. It takes a lot of focus because I have to constantly bring my drifting attention back to the process of scanning through the technique. For some reason during this specific meditation after I was meditating for I don't know how long my attention was continuously focused on performing the body scanning technique. My awareness was not tethered to my attention though. This separation of attention and awareness I think is the state of consciousness that occurred when I experienced the phenomena that I was talking about earlier of hearing the voice with tonality. Anyways I did the technique and I noticed that my attention was "stuck" in doing it, not that I couldn't get out of it sense but in the autopilot kind of way. My awareness on the other hand was within the absolute stillness experiential place. The voice's emotional context was holding a space of wanting my attention, wanting to tell me something. Kind of that emotion you feel from people or feel in yourself when something just happened and you are rapidly trying to inform someone of something. Not to the extent that something really bad has happened, but to the point that the toilet is overflowing and you need some help figuring out how to resolve it to prevent the problem from getting worse. That kind of anxiousness, but not necessarily fear. At the time I had this experience I freaked out pretty hard because it didn't make a lick of sense. I didn't have anyone to talk about it either and I still haven't figured out what the hell happened, but writing a response to your post has brought a lot of clarity and there were a few other experiences that allowed me to build up my understanding of it. Regardless, I hope this helps in some way. Regards, Alex
  27. There are those that come into this live with an experiential certainty of gender. To the extent that they believe when they get to a certain age they will be shocked that their gender hasn't changed and won't change, in the case where that gender does not line up with their experience of themselves. In this case the poster is seeking out broader sources to solve a challenge in their life they aren't finding support in other parts of their lives. Essentially the feel they don't have the power to bring about meaningful change in their life. How might this person best be empowered to have the change they want instead of the change we think they need?
