The Akashic Records (or Book of Life) are a compendium of universal events, experiences, and lifetimes that is held in the spiritual realms. It’s the vast field of energy and information that contains all wisdom—along with all the technical, scientific, and creative knowledge—throughout time.
In terms of both your individual history and all the truths of the Universe, every energetic vibration of thought and experience is held in the Records.
The Records include your past lives and all your future potential, as well as unending information about the workings of the Universe, including scientific discovery, medical advancement, all sorts of creative inspiration, and the soul lessons that you have experienced in this lifetime and the many lifetimes gone by.
Akasha is a Sanskrit word which means “sky-based” or “ether”. This is a reflection of how vast and utterly expansive the Akashic Records are—going back in time before the ancients and moving in space beyond the universes.
This boundlessness causes many to believe that the Records are inaccessible and unreachable, but nothing can be further from the truth. The fact that they are held in the ethers means that they are not only in the skies but also all around you, within you, and indeed everywhere.
Reference to these extraordinary records can be found in ancient cultures around the world. Throughout the Bible, all the events of the past, the deeds of the people, and even the visions of the future were written in the books of records.
These books of records also held the visions and future prophecies recounted in the Old and New Testaments. Sometimes, however, visions of what was to come had to be sealed away because they wouldn’t be understood by the readers of those times: “O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book to the time of the end” (Lamsa translation, Daniel 12:4).
In more recent times, it was Helena P. Blavatsky, co-founder of the Theosophical Society, who made us first aware of the term Akasha. Throughout her teachings, Blavatsky shares that the Akasha is Divine consciousness, the source of all energy and life.
Yet she doesn’t link the word records to that name. It was Alfred Percy Sinnett who brought the idea of the records to the West, when he described the Buddhist belief in “a permanency of records in the Akasa” and man’s ability “to read the same” in his book Esoteric Buddhism (1884).
You can visit the Akashic Records in dreams, visions, and meditations. When we are transported or guided to connect with them, we are being given the opportunity to take an inventory of our life and all of the events that have taken place in it, and to gain information on lifetimes past.
It then gives us the chance to clear up the old stories about ourselves and release our past lives. We are given the freedom to choose a new path.
Happily, the Records are available to you and to everyone. And through them you can discover your world—and everything beyond.
You can access the information in the Records in a number of interesting ways—through meditation, your own psychic experience, the assistance of Spirit, or by getting a Akashic record reading done by a psychic advisor.
Regardless of the technique you use, the unlimited guidance, inspiration, and energy of the Records are yours to explore—and to use to charge your life with limitless power, love, and joy.
If you’re feeling stuck or unsure about anything in your life, the records can reveal any essential information or soul lesson so that you can fulfill your purpose during this lifetime🙏
