A Simple Explanation of the World of the Akashic Records

Understanding What Akasha Means

Common Hindu Definition:

What are the Akashic Records? First, the Akasha is the “primordial substance”, or ether. It’s the 5th element. The 5th element is responsible for forming everything that exists.

Additionally, Akasha means the essence of all things existing in the material world. Moreover, it’s where everything originates from since the beginning of earth’s history. The other four elements of fire, earth, air and water are formed from the 5th element.

Also, it’s believed by some, that the Akasha exists in every living creature and object in existence. The “Aka th sha” is most commonly known in New Age concepts as the 4th dimension. Significantly, this dimension vibrates at its own unique  frequency.

Everyone who ever was, or will be, in our Universe, contributes to the information contained within the Akashic Records.

Most importantly, the Akashic Records contain the recorded history of one’s lifetime journeys as a soul since inception.  They hold the past, present and, future probabilities of a soul’s journey. In fact, the records contain all thoughts, deeds, and actions of everything. What lies therein, becomes part of the global mind, body, and consciousness. Importantly, if the majority of people on earth would only think regarding harmony and brotherly love, our whole global awareness would rise to a greater level. Perhaps then, war, hunger, greed, and cruelty can be abolished forever.

Furthermore, the Akashic Records viewed as something mysterious, occult or even of the supernatural. If anything is real, exploring the Akashic Records is the most wonderful and completely natural, healing, and inner experience you can have. All that is required is deep relaxation, a vigilant focus, an open mind, trusting heart, and a willingness to explore the unknown.

Significantly, religious figures and mystics have made references to the Akashic Records throughout history, the term itself originated with the 19th-century movement of Theosophy. People who have accessed the Akashic Records in the past include Nostradamus, Rudolph Steiner, Mary Baker Eddy, Emmanuel Swedenborg, Edgar Cayce, among others!

The Akashic Records contain all events and responses concerning human consciousness in all realities.

In the twentieth century, psychic and mystic, Edgar Cayce, brought the idea of the Akashic Records once again to the forefront of public awareness. He did many readings with information obtained from the Akashic Records. These became known as, “Life Readings”. These readings were highly coveted, and numerous high-profile individuals and celebrities of the time, had a reading from Cayce.

This is what Edgar Cayce had to say about the Akashic Records:

“Upon time and space is written the thoughts, the deeds, the activities of an entity – as in relationships to its environs, its hereditary influence; as directed – or judgment drawn by or according to what the entity’s ideal is. Hence, as it has been oft called, the record is God’s book of remembrance; and each entity, each soul – as the activities of a single day of an entity in the material world – either makes same good or bad or indifferent, depending upon the entity’s application of self towards that which is the ideal manner for the use of time, opportunity and the expression of that for which each soul enters a material manifestation. The interpretation then as drawn here is with the desire and hope that, in opening this for the entity, the experience may be one of helpfulness and hopefulness.”

-Edgar Cayce reading 1650-51

Can Anyone Access the Akashic Records?

Above all, anyone has the inherent ability to access the Akashic Records.  Yet, like a muscle that requires exercise and training, it may not achieve its optimum proficiency on the first access attempt.

Indeed, many qualified teachers instruct others on achieving a real presence within the records. However, some of the methods taught require a lot of ritual-like invocations.  Also, some teachers claim that only through by years of extensive training, can one reach the plane where the records reside. I do not believe this is correct. I’ve naturally accessed the records since childhood. Moreover, I believe that our personal records are right at our fingertips for viewing and accessing our soul’s growth and to understand the reasons and life lessons derived from the lives we have already lived.
