akashicWhat are the Akashic Records?

The Akashic Records are an etheric library or data base of every thought, feeling, intention, action, and event that has ever occurred throughout the history of the universe. The information in the Records is alive and dynamic. The term Akashic Records was coined by the Theosophists, and the concept was made popular by Edgar Cayce, the foremost Akashic “reader.”

What does “Akashic” mean?

Akasha is a Sanskrit word describing the ether or non-physical substance that exists throughout all things, beings, places, and galaxies. Within the fabric of the Akasha is a living, ever-changing memory or record of everything that has ever transpired on an energetic or physical level.

What is the purpose of the Akashic Records?

According to the Akashic, the purpose of life is soul evolution, and the purpose of the Records is to guide this process. Every soul is on a grand journey, and every lifetime holds an evolutionary purpose within this journey. The Records assist in that they know exactly where the soul has been, where it is going, and how to get there.

Who oversees the Akashic Records?

There exists a collective group of beings, the Keepers of the Akashic Records, whose sole purpose is to gather and contain the wisdom and workings of the universe, which includes everything that has previously transpired, as well as the probable and possible future outcomes of all (present) situations. The Keepers speak as one voice, and do not have a personality or emotional body. They translate and interpret information for us, when asked, and selectively choose what to share to assist us on our individual path.

How are the Records organized?

According to Edgar Cayce and others, there exist three halls: the Hall of Learning, the Hall of Wisdom, and the Hall or Records. Not only can we receive information about our own soul’s history, but we can access scientific, technological, literary, creative, and planetary information, as well accounts of ancient civilizations and other historical information.

Do we have our own personal Records?

Yes, each individual or soul has its own file or book in the Hall of Records, which can be accessed only by ourselves or by someone who has our permission to access it. (However, we can only access content that is compatible with our current vibration. We will not be shown anything we cannot handle in our current state). Within our personal Records, there are four key areas or chambers: past lives, present lives, life between lives, and future lives.

How do we access the Akashic Records?

In reality, we access the Records all the time, through dreams, meditation, journaling, intuitive hits, creative inspiration, scientific inquiry, etc. We can also access the Records through conscious intention, hypnotherapy, past life regression, psychic readings, and Akashic Record readings. The caveat is that we must be compatible with the information we seek.

The following factors determine what information you have access to in the Records:

  •  Your focus
  •  Your personal vibration
  •  Your capacity to understand and hold the information
  •  Your intent for accessing the information


Scientists, inventors, and others inadvertently access the Records because they’ve met the criteria for tapping into certain bodies of information. Einstein, Tessla, Da Vinci, and others routinely accessed the Records for information and inspiration.

Where are the Akashic Records?

The Akashic Records exist in holographic form, which means their entirety can be accessed through any small part of creation, but they also appear to people as existing in another dimension (in the form of a library, temple complex, super-computer, or other center of knowledge).

How are the Records safeguarded or regulated?

One can only enter the Hall of Records through the vibration of compassion and love. The specific intention and vibration of the individual or group seeking information determines what information will be revealed. (The Keepers of the Records are experts at knowing exactly what and how much information to release, and to whom.)

How should we address our requests to the Akashic Records?

Get in a relaxed, meditative state, and then make your inquiry:

General:  “I ask to be connected to the Akashic Records. I petition for the highest understanding and wisdom to be accessed at this time. I wish to learn and to know of my highest being.”

Specific:  “I ask the Akashic to help me understand the difficulties I experience with my spouse.” “I call upon the Akashic for help in sorting out my career direction.” I petition the Records for a deeper understanding of physics.”

Through dreams:  As you go to sleep, say:  “My dream state is a gateway to the Akashic Records. I will receive information for my greatest understanding and benefit. I will remember the messages of my dreams upon awakening.” (When you wake up, be sure to write down any dream impressions or messages in a notebook).

How do we receive information from the Records?

The most important thing is to be open and relaxed about how and when you receive information. You might get instant, specific answers, in the form of words, thoughts, feelings, or visions. You may not appear to get anything at all. Know that your request has been heard and will be answered when the time is right. It may filter into your consciousness gradually over time, occur through a series of events, or through a book, a movie, or a conversation you overhear. (Note: The Akashic Records responds best to open-ended inquiries, and “why” questions. Asking specific “when,”  “where,” and “how” questions may not yield the results you’re looking for).

Gratitude: How to Fake It ’til You Make It!

gratitudeIf you’re anything like me, you know the miraculous benefits of practicing gratitude, but perhaps fall short when it comes to applying it on a regular basis. Don’t feel bad—-it’s human nature to notice what’s “wrong” in our environment. After all, our survival throughout history has often depended on it.

But the experience of gratitude need not interfere with our ability to perceive threat or keep our families safe. Feeling grateful for all we have and all we are, in fact, boosts our immunity to all sorts of life’s ills. In reality, gratitude has no downside (except that sometimes hearing the word evokes guilt). Not to worry—-gratitude can be quickly and painlessly learned.

Someone recently told me that Louise Hay starts each day by opening her eyes and thanking her bed for giving her a nice place to sleep. Apparently she thanks her mattress, her pillow, her sheets and comforter, “Thank you, blankets, for keeping me warm.” No-brainer, right? The bed didn’t collapse or burst into flames in the night, and you’re stoked. (And now you’re actively engaged in the gratitude process!)

I liked this because no matter what’s going on in your life, if you have a decent place to lay your head at night, at least you have that to be grateful for. And my experience is that once you start noticing things to be grateful for, it’s hard to stop. Before you know it, you’re appreciating your diagnosis, your thighs, and all the annoying people in your life!

So, this week I ask you to make a practice of appreciation. Keeping a gratitude journal is a beautiful and brag-worthy endeavor, of course, but if you can’t muster the energy to write stuff down, at least spend two minutes at the beginning or end of each day noticing things you are grateful for. (Note that quantity is just as important as quality when it comes to appreciation, so feel free to list anything you are grateful for—-bacon, short skirts, weekends, you name it! The more the better.

Thank you for stopping by and sharing a moment of your day with me. I am truly grateful.
