Part II: How do others describe the Akashic Records?
In case you are not aware, Edgar Cayce is thought to be the person who first came across a system for accessing the Akashic Records. Known as a psychic and mystic, he helped many people through his intuitive abilities and most often cited that accessing the Akashic Records gave the needed information to help the people who came to see him. He made reference to the idea that each thought, action or experience would create a vibrational existence which would then be marked upon space and time with the person’s identity attached to it. He was also known to have believed that the records were recorded in an objective way that revealed the true intent of the person, and that these records were a resource of information that were open to everyone.
Here is how Cayce describes them:
The Akashic Records, or “The Book of Life,” can be equated to the Universe’s super-computer system. It is this system that acts as the central storehouse of all information for every individual who has ever lived upon the earth. More than just a reservoir of events, the Akashic Records contain every deed, word, feeling, thought, and intent that has ever occurred at any time in the history of the world. Much more than simply a memory storehouse, however, these Akashic Records are interactive in that they have a tremendous influence upon our everyday lives, our relationships, our feelings and belief systems, and the potential realities we draw toward us … The Akashic Records contain the entire history of every soul since the dawn of Creation. These records connect each one of us to one another.
Another well-known person who teaches a systematic method of accessing the Akashic Records is author Linda Howe. Linda Howe has written many books on the Records and developed a certification program in which you can become a Certified Akashic Record Reader; however, anyone can open the Records through the Pathway Process Prayer that Linda created and no certification in required.
In her book “How to Read the Akashic Records,” she describes them this way:
The Akashic Records offer empowerment and transformation by lending us exactly the wisdom, guidance, and energetic support that we need in this lifetime. For centuries, the Records — the energetic archive of Souls’ past, present, and future possibilities — were the exclusive domain of mystics, saints, and scholars. No longer! The collective consciousness of the human race has been growing, evolving, and maturing. This spiritual independence is marked by individuals who know that they have direct access to their spiritual Source, and who cultivate that sacred relationship.
Aside: You may be interested to know that it is Linda Howe’s method which I was taught by Kevin Jackson, one of her approved teachers. This is the only method that I use to access the records for myself and for my clients.
