Tapping Your Akashic Records – A Little Bit of Heaven on Earth
by Sara E. Morrow
In life, we make decisions all day long. From the big to the small, constantly making choices that affect our present and future. What if there was a way to access all the information in the Universe we could ever need to help us along?
The Akashic Records are thought to be a Divine source, hidden in the Universe, that we can find all the information on human kind about the past, present and future, to help us make informed, beneficial choices to have the best life possible.
Knowledge contained in these records is imprinted on the ‘Akasha’ – the Sanskrit word meaning ‘space’, both in its elemental and metaphysical forms. The Akasha contains the energy that makes up everything in the Universe.
What’s an Akashic Record?
The DNA of the Universe. Akashic records can be thought of as the imprints of every thought, action, emotion and experience that’s ever taken place in time and space. We each have our own record. These records are thought to be energetically protected by guides, guardians and keepers.
Akashic records tell the stories we can’t utilize in our conscious mind, without help from the divine. According to theory, this enables us to have a taste of ‘heaven on earth’. The world as we have collectively perceived it is but a faint shadow within a vast reality.
Think of these records as the realm of the unseen world. Like the dream state that has many different levels of brain activity while we sleep, other dimensions we don’t usually tap into are parts the exist within our mind. Our brain activity proves that our mind is always working – this can be scientifically measured. Regardless of whether we can ‘see’ them or not, all thoughts and experiences exist.
History of Akashic Records
In the Bible, they are referred to as the Book of Life. In Hindu, Akasha is related to the primary principle of nature involving the four natural elements: fire, air, earth and water.
Edgar Cayce was the first to publically document his journey within the Akashic realm, stating: “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.”
He theorizes that in death, we are all presented with our personal Akashic record of what we have or have not done in life in a karmic sense. The idea is comparable to the biblical Book of Life, which is consulted to see whether or not the dead are admitted to heaven.
How can we tap in?
What was once thought of as a source only for the Divinities and Prophets of our time is now thought to be accessible to all humankind who pursue a connection and work a path towards spiritual enlightenment.
To open or access the Akashic Records, we move from our daily state of consciousness to a state where we tap into our divine consciousness that is shared with all in the universe. Intuition, prayer, meditation and flashes of insight are ways we can tap into our Akashic files. We may even unconsciously access them in our daily lives within our reflections and ‘gut’ instincts.
But if a stronger connection is desired, there are techniques we can learn, using meditation, breathing techniques and sacred spoken prayers. Some also choose to use a professional consultant who has studied the practices and has expertise in the area.
Akashic records also draw us to and away from one another due to past histories contained within the records. That ‘feeling’ that you’ve known someone before, or just ‘don’t mix’ with someone else very well may be rooted in a past life that we know nothing of in our conscious mind.
The records are a divine tool we can use to remember our oneness with all beings in the universe and find our personal power to create the life we desire.
