Think of the Akashic Records as the energetic memory of the soul since it left Source. Everything that has consciousness has an Akashic Record-that includes your pets, your business and even places! It is the ability of consciousness to hold impressions.
The Akashic Records are the energetic system in which your soul records every thought, action and deed that takes place throughout its incarnations. I like to think of it as a cloud storage facility of the soul. Accessing your Akashic Records is akin to 'googling' a question for your soul. The answers you receive will be in alignment with the level of consciousness that you are at. The more you develop yourself, the deeper the answers become.
Akasha (Sanskrit meaning 'Space') is the subtlest of the 5 elements in Vedic systems. It is the simplest quality of the universe and is therefore the element that is most identified with consciousness itself. Akashic Record was a term first introduced by the Theosophists (in Sinnett's book Esoteric Buddhism) and was popularised by the work of Edgar Cayce who was also known as the Sleeping Prophet. Cayce was a devout Christian who was able to access the 'Book of Life' of others to assist them in medical matters and 'life readings' which often covered past lives. His work is fascinating and I would highly recommend reading the detailed transcripts of his sessions to anyone who is interested in what the Akashic Records can do.
I was first introduced to the concept of the Akashic Records (unbeknownst to me at the time) at Sunday school when I was a child. I remember thinking how cool it was that there was a 'Book of Life' that we each had that we could review when we died. I also remember being disappointed that I would have to wait until I died to access it. Little did I know at that time that I would indeed access this repository of information not only for myself but for others too! When I eventually did come across the term Akashic Records, I recall the inner knowing that this was exactly the same thing we had discussed all those years ago at Sunday school and was so excited that I could access these whilst fully alive.
The Akashic Records are an invaluable source for you on your spiritual journey. Being able to obtain guidance from your Akashic Guides is a beautiful experience and helps you to feel your connection to unconditional love-whether via an Akashic Records Reader or by learning how to go in your own. It is part of my soul's mission to help as many people as possible learn how to work with this amazing resource.
