1. What are the Akashic Records?
Think of them as the storehouse of information about you and every other person. Some religions have referred to this as the “Book of Life” wherein all is written. The Records are accessed through a prayer and entered into with explicit permission. Questions are brought to the Records in order to help with the mundane (and not so mundane) challenges of the human experience. The exploration is grounding in nature.
2. Can a reader of my Akashic Record predict my future?
No. And they can’t even access your Record without your permission.
Nothing is set in stone, yet what can be shown in your Record is the potential or possibility for a particular outcome. Given free will, you make choices in your life based on so many variables, but what you can do via the Records is enjoy healing and integration so that your future more accurately reflects your Soul Self as the Masters, Teachers and Loved Ones (MTLOs) know you.
3. Who are the Masters, Teachers and Loved Ones?
The Masters are not personality-identified nor have they ever been physically embodied. They work at the behest of the Lords of the Records to reveal information to you and to provide the healing you seek. The Teachers may or may not have lived lives on Earth but the Loved Ones certainly have—they’re the people you’ve known in this lifetime who have passed on, and they’re here as part of your support team.
4. Are there really Lords of the Records, and who or what are they?
Think of them as the Keepers of this beautiful dimension of consciousness. They’re taking care of business and managing the MTLOs. Like a distant CEO, you know they’re there, but they’re always behind the scenes!
5. Is it possible for me to access my own Record?
Absolutely! And please do! This once-closely-held ability is finding its way into the mainstream via the efforts of people like Linda Howe and the Center for Akashic Studies. You can do what I did to begin exploring your Record. Get Linda’s book, “How to Read the Akashic Records.” If you want to go deeper, there is a set of CDs that is somewhat like a class. It includes guided meditations and practices to help deepen your abilities.
6. I’ve heard others speak about how helpful “mining the Akash” can be, but I don’t really understand how it can be done.
There is a beautifully simple prayer that can be spoken to get you to that level of energy and information—into the heart of the Akash. It’s the entry way. Mining the Akash means that you are delving into the Records and unearthing layers of useful information.
7. That’s a funny word, “Akash.” What does it mean?
It’s actually a Sanskrit word meaning “primary substance” or “the ether.” This refers to “energy in its first and earliest state…a quality of light in both the physical and spiritual senses.” Many sacred texts have referred to the Akasha.
8. I’ve been told that I can see my past lives in the Record. Really?
When you go into your Records and you bring a present-day concern or challenge to your questioning, you may get images or information that depict you in some other lifetime. If there is resolution to be had through conveying this information, then it will show up. Nothing will be revealed that you are not ready for. You can choose to more actively explore past lives because it will enrich your knowledge of Self.
9. Can I go into the Records and look at my husband’s or my child’s?
No. You can only access your own Records, whether on your own or through a reader. What you will get, however, is information to help you with how your child or husband is affecting you, and what you can do to be at peace. Remember, looking at someone’s Records is only done with permission, and it’s probably wiser to have someone else read your husband’s Records!
Children don’t need a reading and they need to be at least 18 years old to give consent.
10. Can I go find our information about my pets in the Records? What about a house?
Yes, and yes. This is yet another fascinating way to work in the Records. Sessions with animals can help us understand their particular behaviors and needs, as well as their role in our lives.
Information received about a house on the market, for example, can help you make a decision about whether this would be the right home for you. There are so many ways to use the Records!
11. Are there classes to learn how to access my Records?
The Center for Akashic Studies offers several classes to help you learn to work in the Records. You might even be motivated to become a practitioner or take that further and become a certified teacher, which is the process I’m in.
12. How can I develop my abilities even more?
By spending time in your Records on a regular basis. If you will think of this as a relationship, then like any other relationship, it deepens through trust and time.
