What are the Akashic Records?
by Akira Dawn
You’ve likely heard of the Akashic Records before in some form or another – the term has long since made its way into popular culture, and has been around for ages. It’s even been prominently featured in such movies as What Dreams May Come and the tv show Dr. Who!
But…what are they?
The origin of the word ‘Akashic’ is Akasha – a Sanskrit term meaning aether. Put another way, it’s The Stuff Of Life, sometimes referred to as the Quantum Field.
The Akashic Records are the story of this energy – an endless, constantly moving mosaic built from and of the stuff of life, containing all the information of everything that ever was, is, and will be. And I do mean everything. You. The air you breathe, the chair you sit in, the stars, the planets and the dust in between. All of it.
Usually you’ll see the Records depicted in movies and such as being a huge library filled with rows and rows of books. A more modern reference would be a ginormous warehouse packed with softly humming databanks and other storage devices. Life, busily becoming as the Universe expands and being documented every step of the way.
Akashic Record Readings
People who do readings in the Akashic Records have found a way to tap into this vast resource. They’ve either discovered or have been trained in the art of how to go into the records and request the specific info the person receiving the reading is looking for. They then possess the ability to translate that information (a skill in its own right!) in such a way that it actually makes sense.
Due to the nature of the reading relationship and the sacred honor it is to be admitted access to the Akashic Records in such a manner, information can only be requested that is directly related to the records of the person receiving the reading. In other words, you can’t ask for info to be revealed about someone else, except in connection with yourself.
Readings take place in a rarefied energy of non-judgment and support for the evolving soul within this life.
