Letting go meditation and recap

I've struggled with convincing myself to recap for years (decades? idk) and tried various solutions to no avail. I assume it's fear, but I haven't been able to pin it down. Recently, I started a meditation program that focuses almost exclusively on letting go. I've been doing great with it so far, and I'm tickled to get in real practice letting go, something I've also struggled with for years (grudges and such). I'm sure it's not as effective as the letting go portion of the recap process since my energy isn't compressed, the intent is different, etc., etc. Still, I think it's good practice all the same.

Suppose I do this meditation technique, and it turns out to be effective to some degree or another at letting go of foreign energy. Will it be a problem when I recap later?

Also, I understand that I won't be as effective with the work until I get my energy back. But will this cause problems for me during classes while I'm learning to do this stuff if I've let go of foreign energy but not pursued my own?

Hi Kelly, 

I don’t see how your current practice would infringe upon your potential future recapping, so don’t worry about that :) I do just want to mention, however, that recapping has the intention of many, many others before you, so in essence, when working with the recapping practice, you are riding that already existent wave of intention (intent of healing, of clarity, of taking back what is yours and letting go what isn’t, etc..). It’s an old practice and has a lot of omph behind it already. Despite knowing about the recapping process years before coming to the cave I couldn’t seem to get into it either until I took the recap class. Once I did it enough to see the changes I was hooked ;) And yes, in order to be effective with a lot of the exercises here you’re going to have to get your energy back and recap is a really gentle and at-your-own-pace way to do it. 
 

I hope this helps!

Oh, that's good to know. And your response was super helpful, thank you :)
