A while ago, one of my friends was talking about an Akashic Records Reading and how it helped her to gain new insights and inspiration. Until then, I’d never heard of the Akashic Records, but it instantly got my attention.
I started to explore this topic more and more and discovered that the Akashic Records can be a source of great wisdom, healing, and even psychic connection.
And the great part is, that it’s not hard to connect to the Akashic Records once you understand what it is.
In this article, I will explain what the Akashic Records are, how you can enter them, what kind of information is available, and what will happen when you open the Akashic Records.
What Are the Akashic Records
The Akashic Records is often thought of as a giant universal library in which every account of every life is kept. This physical sounding description is a bit misleading.
Technically, since the Akashic Records are in the astral realm, this description is not of a physical, tangible place. Thus when people say they “visited” the Akashic Records, they’re describing a shift in their conscious awareness.
They are speaking more specifically about entering into a connection with a spiritual dimension and describing it through familiar physical constructs.
Helena Blavatsky, a famous occultist and member of the Theosophical Society, spoke of the existence of “tablets of light” which contained all information about all people, places, events, and time.
The Akashic Records Meaning
The term Akashic has its roots in the Sanskrit word “Akasha” meaning “ether” or associated with the atmosphere. In metaphysical teachings, Akasha is the element of magic. It is also the elemental synthesis of the four physical elements, Air, Fire, Water, and Earth.
Thus the Akashic Records are thought to exist in the ether and embody all aspects of all occurrences that have taken place, including human lifetimes.
Again, these are not actual books or tablets in an actual, physical library. They exist in an energetic realm.
Some people believe they are in the mental realm and others describe their location in the astral or spiritual realm.
How Can You Enter the Akashic Records?
Some believe that a guide must help you enter the Akashic Records and that you need the approval to investigate specific information about your path or the paths of others.
In this way, you are kept from delving into information for which you are not ready or which may be counterproductive for you to have.
Other modern gurus will try to tell you there is only one true way or one true prayer that leads to access to the Akashic Records. This is not true.
Ultimately, we are all psychic beings and the Akashic Records, as part of the Collective Unconscious, links all of us as individuals with the Divine. Therefore, no one has the corner on access to the Collective Unconscious.
So, explore and try to experiment with the different methods and meditations to help you reach the Records and you’ll see for yourself that it is possible to enter the Records without the help of a guru.
Aligning yourself with Protective Guides
Many books have been written with instructions on how to enter the Akashic Records. Usually, the process involves some kind of grounding or purification first, aligning yourself with protective guides and protective energy (more about this in the next paragraph).
This also helps you to align with your best ideals and intentions and prohibits you from approaching the Akashic Records with too much emphasis on ego or with unintended wicked intentions.
If you, for instance, are upset with an ex and want to get him or her back, consulting the Akashic Records for the purpose of manipulating them is not ideal and so the alignment with higher guides will prevent you from acting on this base desire.
Suggested Steps in Your Meditation Process
You will want to go through a few suggested steps in your meditation process such as grounding, centering, aligning with your Higher Guides, finding some mechanism to leave your “baggage” outside (such as a well, river, or some other way to visualize cleansing).
Then visualize or imagine a library of some kind.
When you enter with your guide, set the intention to receive the “record” you are going to explore. It could be a record of your incarnation, past lifetimes, healing and so forth.
Let your guide facilitate whether you are given access. If you are, ask your question or be open to the information received. It may or may not come in “written” form.
Remember, this is a vehicle for you to access higher consciousness. It may not always show in words specifically.
Obstacles to Open the Akashic Records
The biggest obstacles to accessing the wisdom of the Akashic Records can be doubt and fear. If you have high expectations that it has to look or feel a certain way, you may actually block yourself.
Instead try to keep an open mind to what appears through all of your senses. Try to practice accessing the Akashic Records so that you will feel more comfortable with the process.
Also, the more you meditate generally, the better attuned you will be to access the Records or do other such targeted meditations.
What happens when you open the akashic records?
It is believed that when one enters the Akashic Records, you can access all information about your past lives, present, and future lives and also all information about the paths of others. In general, this record is considered a place where all truths are known.
Experiences may vary from individual to individual, but usually, there is a benevolent guide, being or angel who will help you access the Akashic Records. Also, Spirit will use your own “language” to convey information.
If you are a movie buff, the Records may appear as images on a film screen. If you are an avid reader, you may see the Akashic Records as books in a library.
Some describe actually feeling like they are channeling the information from the records through a close connection with their guides. The more you visit the Akashic Records, the more comfortable and confident you will be in using this channel to access higher wisdom.
How to Read the Akashic Records
Though it is believed that the Akashic Records contain all information about events past, present, and future, and thus are valuable for divination and healing, it is also believed some boundaries apply.
Think of searching the Akashic Records in a similar way to doing a Google search. You can call up a search for specific information about disease and healing, about past lives, about relationships, about soul contracts, and the like.
Yet, you will also have to go through the filters from your guides. If your guides don’t see you as being ready to have a full view of certain details, you may be blocked from receiving certain information at a given time.
This is similar to a search being blocked by your computer’s antivirus protection.
If you are granted access to the information you are seeking, you may receive information about your relationship with others. Your connection to a friend, lover, or even an adversary, can be explained from a higher level.
You may see the core source of an illness or injury as it relates to your path and your higher growth as an individual. You may try to look for ways to heal a relationship once you see the role you were destined to play in each other’s lives.
Benefits of Working with the Akashic Records
Working with the Akashic Records can help you delve into past lives and future potential. This can enhance your psychic work and work with Tarot and other tools.
When you work with the Akashic Records, you’re looking at the highest possible view of events. Therefore the information may be sent in less physical and more symbolic ways.
This can lead to greater healing and understanding. You may have an emotionally cleansing experience when you visit the Akashic Records. You may come away with a deeper understanding of the issues that led to a divorce for example.
You may also come away with a stronger sense of your mission and purpose because of information gleaned from the Akashic Records.
Edgar Cayce used the Akashic Records and his subconscious mind to deliver accurate and helpful psychic readings. His readings were focused specifically on healing and diagnosis of the origins of disease and illness in the individual.
Those who use the Akashic Records in this way look to the wisdom that is collected in what can be thought of as a storehouse of connection between all people and all life.
If you already work with Tarot, the archetypal wisdom of the Akashic Records may appear in your awareness as a Tarot card or symbols you recognize from the Tarot.
Can You Have a Negative Experience when Entering the Akashic Records?
The experience of entering the Akashic Records, like most meditative experiences, is uplifting and healing.
If you have a “negative” experience in which you feel fearful, anxious, or compelled to do something you wouldn’t normally do, this may be a manifestation of anxiety in your subconscious.
These negative experiences are not part of accessing the Akashic Records and may suggest discomfort with meditating or unhealed psychological issues that are triggering fearful responses.
If this happens to you, it may be best to work on relaxation techniques and meditation in general before going into more specific techniques like accessing the Akashic Records.
Are you Ready to Work with the Akashic Records?
So based on the above, are you ready to access your Akashic Records?
If so, remember that when you work with the Akashic Records, you are entering into a spiritual and loving realm in which you connect both with your guides and also your potential. This should always feel loving and positive.
Even if you are exploring a challenging issue like illness or loss, the Akashic Records is a place of connection and love, transformation, and healing.
The more you use this method to access your higher wisdom, the greater improvement you may see in your predictive work, Tarot readings, and psychic development.
This is because you are aligning your energy with higher vibrations and you maintain this higher vibration even outside of the meditation practice. Be sure to sample a few different methods of accessing the Akashic Records to notice which one feels best for you.
You may want to write down or record your experiences during or right after the meditation. This way you can jot down or record information that comes to you while it is fresh in your mind.
Since you are altering your consciousness in the meditation process, you may feel like information came through a dream. You may think you’ll remember it all but find that this is not the case after a few minutes pass by.
For this reason, it’s good to stop and record your experiences either during (through recording) or shortly after the meditation.
If someone asks you specifically to seek information on their behalf, still let your guides be the gatekeepers who allow you to access this information or not.
Never take it upon yourself to try to wander into the Records of another person. Just as you wouldn’t snoop through someone else’s phone, so should you not use the Records to delve into another’s path.
The goal should always be personal growth and healing, not to infringe on the privacy of others.
