I'm not familiar with that teaching and, quite honestly, I don't know right now what the meaning is and I'm short on time, but I'm putting up the passage and some cross references that may be of some help.
Here's the passage in it's context:
Luke 6:37 "Do not judge, and you will not be judged; and do not condemn, and you will not be condemned; pardon, and you will be pardoned. 38 "Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure--pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return."
Now look at the NT cross reference to verse 38, which seems to have a positive meaning, the idea of a spiritual reproducing:
First, in the context of explaining to the disciples the parable of the seeds and the sed which falls on good soil producing 30, 60 and 100 fold. Mark 4: 24 "Consider carefully what you hear," he continued. "With the measure you use, it will be measured to you--and even more. 25 Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him."
And some OT cross references which seem to fall more in line with the judgment/condemnation idea:
Psalm 79:12 Pay back into the laps of our neighbors seven times the reproach they have hurled at you, O Lord.
"See, it stands written before me: I will not keep silent but will pay back in full; I will pay it back into their laps--
both your sins and the sins of your fathers," says the Lord. "Because they burned sacrifices on the mountains and defied me on the hills, I will measure into their laps the full payment for their former deeds."
You show love to thousands but bring the punishment for the fathers' sins into the laps of their children after them. O great and powerful God, whose name is the Lord Almighty,
