The Akashic Records are comprised of magnetic fields of light which vibrate at varying frequencies. These fields record all events in the universe. The data reveals the entire history of each person since their soul's inception. Therefore, every individual that has ever lived, has their own unique Akashic Record.
I distinctly remember the day when I was ten years old that I discovered the metaphysical section in our small town library. It was stashed in a corner and had no nomenclature.
