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).
