What are the Akashic Records?


We are still in our infancy when it comes to understanding what our bodies are truly capable of. Although much wisdom from the ancient ages has been lost, we are using our modern minds to explore concepts that were widely accepted in the past.

If I were to tell you that there is a database of information, including everything that has ever happened since the dawn of humanity, what comes to your mind?

This database contains all information about every soul’s thought, ideas, and actions. It includes everything from the past, present, and future is written in a dimension called Akasha.

The Akashic Records are a compilation of all the events that have ever happened in the history of the world. It’s also a place where your higher self or soul records are kept, and it’s only accessible to those who are ready to go there, like yourself.

According to many, the dimension in which we live is not the only one. There are parallel dimensions that coexist together. Akasha is a dimension that can help us to access the records within this dimension as well as that of the other dimensions.

On a quantum level, we know that there is a field of possibility where anything can exist. Based on our observation, we collapse a probability into a reality. That field, like the Akashic field is non-local and connects us with each other and the vastness of the universe.

Imagine that your bucket is your body and before you enter this world, your bucket scoops up water from the vast ocean of consciousness. Of course in the ocean there is more than just water, there are sea life, shells, rocks, plants etc. so in your bucket you take some of those as well.

Those contents are what you bring into this life to resolve, balance and fulfill your unique purpose with. You forget that before you were born, you had unlimited access to all that is and that although in this life you are a bucket filled with amazing treasures, your real nature is the endless ocean of consciousness. When you tap into the Akashic records, you are connecting with the ocean of wisdom that is who you truly are.

Get Ready to Open Your Akashic Records

1. Practice meditation daily

Mediation has many benefits. If you are an overthinker who tends to analyze everything, meditation can help you calm your mind. It can help you select only beneficial thoughts. Also, it will expand your vibration into a higher frequency.

2. Be aware of your belief-systems

Our belief systems are created through our experiences. When we listen to words or experience something (especially where there is a strong emotion involved), we store it and use it as a program as we move forward. By identifying as our beliefs, we continue to create a life that validates those beliefs, even if they limit ourselves and our lives. When things are not going the way you would like them to, see if there is a belief pattern connected that you can explore and unravel.

3. Practice visualization

It is a beneficial technique that has multiple purposes. In addition to helping you manifest what you want, it can lift your spirit in a few minutes. Close your eyes and imagine how you are overcoming your challenges, fulfilling your wishes (anything you want to change in your life). Focus on the details. Pay attention to the body signals and the way you feel at that moment.

The Akashic Records are a compendium of all human experience and thought since time began. They contain not just every thought, deed, and word from your current lifetime but also all your lifetimes previous. These records can only be accessed by you or another spiritual seeker who has evolved to an appropriate level of consciousness – one who is ready to access these higher vibrational frequencies.

How To Read The Akashic Records And Heal Past Lives

Do you believe in reincarnation? Have you ever been in a situation where you can’t explain to yourself some mysterious obsession you have, unfounded fear, or connection to a particular person? Did something happen to you that doesn’t make sense at all, or you couldn’t make sense of it? Do you feel like you have some karmic energy you have carried forward into this life? Sometimes it may feel like you need to pay a debt you have not created in this life?

Let’s go back to our bucket/ocean metaphor. You have lived your amazing life and are ready to leave the earth and return to the ocean. Some of the things in your bucket you were able to heal and find balance with or express, however it is likely there were some parts in your bucket that were not resolved. When you return to source, those unresolved items go back into the ocean of consciousness and another bucket may pick them up for their lifetime to resolve. It is helpful here to note that the treasure you pick up has a history but it is not personal to your bodymind. You, as the person you are now did not experience being Cleopatra or a witch burned at the stake for example, but you may be holding energy that had that experience. By not identifying as the person from the past, you are more likely to be able to see it more clearly and resolve it more easily.

How to Know if You Are Affected By a Past Life

There are many ways to identify if you are affected by a past life. For example, you might have strange dreams or feelings that are not in line with your present life situation. Another way is by observing what kind of things you hear on the radio or TV or read in books; it may be that these things trigger memories from past lives.

If you have fears, for example, that are unexplainable because you have not ever experienced them, these could be caused by past life memories. On the other hand, you could be obsessed with things, people, places, or topics related to your past life.

You could be so obsessed with these things that you watch every movie, TV show, or book on the subject. Every time you have ‘contact’ with that topic, it would provoke a particular emotion, apart from fear. But you may not be able to explain the obsession.

Gain Insight Through the Akashic Records

When you decide to open your Akashic Records, be prepared to gain insight into your past lives. Getting clarity about your past lives can help you resolve your desire to research the topic. Our minds may bring up these things for resolution, and it is up to us to find out the answers through using the Akashic Records.

Go to the Akashic Records with an open mind. Often, you may uncover specific details about a past life. Ask your question to the Akashic Records. When you access the Akashic Records, you may see an image or short movie play out in your mind. After you close the records and finish the meditation, things will often make more sense.

A question you may have is, how is this different from meditating in general? When you meditate to ask for clarity, it is as though you are in a big field. You can go in any direction and there is no clear path. Because the concept of the Akashic records has been visited throughout the past by so many people, it is as though there is a path that already created for you. So it is that simple. By opening your records, you can discover a lot about your unexplainable thoughts, fears, connections with certain people, etc.

My Guardians, Teachers, Masters and Loved Ones, please allow me to open my Akashic Records and find the answers I seek. I trust you. I respect you. I admire you. I allow you to guide me through my mission.

Protect me from any form of my own selfishness and self-centeredness. Please, help me to see through the eyes of the divine force so that I may know what is the highest good for all concerned.

Enable me to understand, experience and share the compassion and wisdom my Masters have for me.
