The Akashic Records—What Are They?
References to the Akashic Records date back to antiquity. The Records have been known by many different names: the Book of Life, Mind of God, Cosmic or Universal Mind, Collective Consciousness, Collective Unconscious or Collective Subconscious. More recently the Records been likened to a “cosmic Internet” that allows us to “Google” specific information. Over recent decades, there has been a growing interest in scientifically identifying and validating the Akashic Records.
At the moment the decision is made to experience life as an independent entity, there is a field of energy created to record every thought, word, emotion, and action generated by our experience. The Akashic Records are the individual records of a soul from the instant it leaves its point of origin, until the end of time.
The Records offer insight into the many facets of a soul’s intention for the lifetime, and guidance in facing current life issues, in relationships, parenting, lifework, etc. You may have accessed the Akashic Records spontaneously through prayer, meditation, flashes of intuition, or “divine inspiration.” An Akashic reading can be done by someone with experience and expertise in working with the Akashic Records.
The word “akashic” is an ancient Sanskrit word that means “cosmic sky,” “space,” or “ether.” Hindu seers recognized the Akasha as the primary and energetic substance out of which all life emerges and into which all things descend. The Akasha contains the energetic imprint of everything that has ever happened, or will happen, in time and space — every thought, emotion, action or experience of every existence. The Akasha exists everywhere, in and throughout time. In this way the Akasha can be thought of as the enduring memory of the cosmos. The energy of the Akasha is the energy of Love and indeed, to be bathed in this Love, is an indication of being in the field of the Akasha.
An Akashic Awakening may emerge in an Akashic Reading, through a deeper understanding and perspective of a current life situation, the recognition of the situation as perfect and necessary for one’s soul growth, through being bathed in the Light of the Akasha, or most typically through some combination of all three.
