I began reading my own Akashic Records in January of 2010. Once I became comfortable with the records, I began reading them for close friends. Over the years, I have witnessed how these readings have helped change my friends and myself for the better. On this page, I will share some of our story, to show others who are curious how the records can help them better connect in a world that was once so separated, but is now finding its way back toward the light and unity consciousness.
What ARE the Akashic Records?
I first learned the term Akashic Record in 2006, when I began studying crystal healing. The term kept appearing in the properties of various crystals to which I found myself attracted. So, in 2008, when a friend asked me about the Akashic Records, I knew what they were, but I didn’t know how to access them, or why, exactly, I would want to. Shortly after she mentioned the Akashic Records, I began having dreams of my mother (who had crossed into the spirit world in February 2007) traveling with me through tunnels, down long corridors, through watery channels and long stretches of open highway. Eventually we ended up crossing a glass skywalk into a large, open glass room where the clear walls were actually enormous screens filled with the stars of the night sky that read as data. And she spoke for the first time in ALL of these traveling dreams. She said: “THESE are the Akashic Records.” I figured this was my cue to figure out a way to access my personal records, but I didn’t really get serious until the summer of 2009 when my niece handed me a Sounds True catalog and said, “I’m not sure why, but I have a feeling I’m supposed to give this to you.” I immediately flipped through the catalog and found Linda Howe’s book, How to Read the Akashic Records. It was then that I knew this was my spiritual calling.
Before I begin sharing my journey through my Akashic Records, I thought it may be helpful to first explain what they are in the very simplest of terms.
What they are
Maybe it’s best to start with what the Akashic Records are NOT. First, there is no physical place that holds these records. It’s a lot like cyberspace. There’s all this information floating around in cyberspace, but there is no physical place to find it. The only difference is that the records are not kept in online databases. I can’t even tell you where they’re kept. That’s, apparently, spiritually classified information.
In all seriousness, the records are most likely kept with your higher self. (That would be, basically, your “true self,” also known as the light being that you are outside of your physical body, which some folks may refer to as your “soul.”)
So, in the quickest summary possible, the Akashic Records are the archives of every individual soul and every thought, emotion, action, interaction and experience of every physical life of that soul. The Lords of the Akashic Records and your Masters, Teachers and Loved Ones (MTLOs) are there to help guide you from where they reside. Think of them as your personal Yodas, young Skywalker.
How to access the records
Personally, I use the Pathway Prayer that is provided in the book How to Read the Akashic Records by Linda Howe. However, I have read that we are bumping into our records all the time. Especially in our dreams. This is why we have those “deja vu” moments. Usually, we’ve had a precognition dream (accessed from our records) that has shown us a quick preview of those mind-blowing moments where we swear this has happened before, but it hasn’t. Sound familiar? I’m sure there are other ways to access the Akashic Records, as well, since more and more books and guides are becoming readily available as the levels of consciousness for everyone on the planet are rapidly rising. So, the choice is yours. Howe’s method works wonderfully for me, so I have not tried any other way.
How you know you’re “in”
The first time you open your records, it is recommended you just sit and feel the energy around you. You will notice a subtle, but definite change. For me, it’s like being in a lightly pressurized cabin. Not at all uncomfortable, but definitely noticeable. The first time I opened my personal records, I noticed a vibration that felt something like a deep fog horn sounds, if that makes any sense. It was a gentle, slow, soothing vibration. I felt like I was being swaddled by the most loving, caring beings in the world. You may also notice colors or a light show, similar to the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) while you’re in your records. The communication you receive at first may be by feeling only. Or, if your MTLOs are especially eager to talk to you, (as I have witnessed on more than one occasion while in the records of others) they may speak to you right away. I’ve found, with the records of others, that my timid clients have records that are slow to open and super gentle loved ones come forward. My clients who are excited are often greeted by lively loved ones. I’ve even had to wait while three of them had to come to an agreement on who would speak first, while a fourth tried to skip process and bust on through.
Though it’s not a game, accessing the Akashic Records does come with a set of rules. For example, records for anyone under the age of 18 may not be accessed. By anyone. There are also rules about what kinds of questions you can ask. For example, “should I,” “when” and yes/no questions are not allowed. That is not to say that recommendations won’t be made, dates won’t be given or that a yes/no question won’t be addressed within the context of the answer of another question that is properly posed according to the rules. I have heard from others and read on blog sites that questions about the future are also prohibited, but this has not stopped me from asking my MTLOs what I can expect from time to time. Or sometimes they just tell me what I can expect, even if I have not asked. It is, however, important to always remember how free will plays a part, moment by moment, and can change everything. This is why it’s important to keep checking in with your MTLOs.
The proper formatting for your questions should begin with one of the following words: why, how, what, where, who, or which.
Although the possibilities are endless (and it is best to provide some detailed background as to why you are asking in order to get more specific answers) here are some samples of how to format questions for an Akashic Reading (they don’t have to exactly match these; they are just generalizations):
Why do I feel like I can’t move forward/onward?
How can I heal this situation?
What is the lesson I need to learn from this?
Where can I find my soul group mates here on Earth?
Who can I count on most to help me with this project? (Provide names and DOBs of possible people you are contemplating, otherwise answers may be general.)
Which healing modalities are best for me to learn/practice? (Provide your interests/options and state whether it’s to heal yourself or others.)
What the records can do for us
The Akashic Records can answer a variety of questions for us, that is true. Questions about past lives or current issues. Whatever causes you the most struggle or strife. Many feel that having these questions answered by their MTLOs has literally changed their lives. It is true that the Akashic Records can bring us great peace. They can also help us remember who we are, why we chose to be here, who we’re in soul contracts with and for what reason, and what we incarnated to accomplish in this life. Our records can offer us comfort and boost confidence and even bring immeasurable amounts of peace to our lives.
