You will hear in the realm of spirituality many spirituals talking about the Akashic records, where supposedly information about the entire universe and every detail in it resides.
The term Akashic has its roots in the Sanskrit word Akasha meaning “space”, “sky” or “ether”. Therefore, the Akashic Records are supposedly thought to exist in the ether level so considerably higher than the vibration we are in, and include records of all aspects of all occurrences that have taken place, including human lifetimes, all intelligent beings, but also every event in Creation.
The Akasha definition varies according to different sources, but the most common one is the one above.
Reading the akashic records, so to be able to tap into own’s past or future lives details and find for instance your soul purpose, is the dream of many spirituals and those even remotely interested by this subject. Therefore, I will explain you further below more of this, both from the established point of view, but also the result of my spiritual research in the Akashic records.
What are the akashic records?
Technically, since the Akashic Records are in the higher dimensions of vibration where the Akasha is actually, this description is not of a physical, tangible place. Thus, when people say they “visited” the Akashic Records, they’re describing a shift in their conscious awareness. They are speaking more specifically about entering into a connection with a spiritual dimension (the Akasha) and their minds translate it through some familiar physical constructs.
My research and practice in accessing directly the Akashic records made me conclude that the term “akashic records” is not technically speaking correctly. Nothing is fixed in this universe, everything is changing all the time. Therefore, there is no place or energetic structure that can hold information like the akashic records, like in a library somewhere. There is nothing stagnant in Creation, everything is in permanent Change, this is the 4th law of Creation.
What happens is that all events in all worlds and dimensions happen in parallel, and there are some gifted souls that can connect to the flow of events in the “past” or “future”, but technically the events actually happen in parallel. It is more difficult to understand as a concept for a human mind which is time-bounded, but it’s very true actually. This is why the human mind called these past events as being some records since is easier to be accepted by an average mind. You can read more about what Akashic records are in my other post here.
What is the structure of the Akashic?
In the Akasha, an Akashic records reader can find ideally every thought, idea, and action from the past, present, and future is stored forever.
The Akashic Records tell what will happen, is happening, or has happened. Because they are at a much higher dimension of vibration than us, the rules of time don’t really apply. Time is flat to the Akashic Records, so information from 2,000 years ago is as accessible as what happened to you yesterday. And what happened to you yesterday is as available as what could happen to you — if you stay on the same destiny trajectory — in 10 years.
Interestingly, everything has its own Akashic Record. Your soul has an Akashic Record, your house has an Akashic Record, your dog, even your relationship! You can open the specific Records of things to ask questions that pertain to them.
Here’s how Edgar Cayce, the psychic medium who popularized the Records, describes them:
“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 ...
-- Edgar Cayce Reading 1650-1”
If you’re familiar with String Theory, the Akashic Records you can consider as a universal database of what’s happening in all the universes that are co-existing together. Simplifying things, you can look at the Universe as a super-quantum computer, holographic, based on a strict set of rules and programs for storing and managing data. The database is an intricate and very complex web of akashic fields maintained by universal laws and programs.
Therefore, if someone astutely tunes into the routines that control it to get akashic records access, he will have access to most things there.
This database is actually, as I mentioned above coming from my spiritual research and practice, just the whole events and occurrences in this universe that run in parallel.
Conditions for a successful akashic reading
Like accessing a database, one needs to be outside the database to have a perspective and be able to connect to the desired Akashic record. If being inside, like being a soul in a body and connected with all these daily chores so caught in your mind like a normal human being around, it’s very difficult to connect suddenly say 2000 years in the past, and look at events back there in a specific place.
One of the most common blocks is people being in their heads versus in their bodies. The problem with that is the intellect is forever attached to the ego—and the ego’s job is to keep us safe by using fear. There are also people holding onto energetic trauma, and then that informs their thinking and decision-making. It’s like having some dirty glasses and we look around only through them, and looking through that dirty lens is all we see.
To be able to exit this lower vibrations plane one needs to raise high enough as soul and body vibration, get to a vantage point, and further connect accurately to the desired point in time and space, which is not a small thing. Because of this aspect, from my research, I met quite a lot of mediums who say they connect to the Akashic records but are actually connecting with their own minds due to the lack of these basic conditions.
Potentially anyone who fulfills the above conditions can get access to his own Akashic records, provided he 1) met the minimum vibration for soul and body, and 2) has done calibration with a competent Akashic reader.
Other important condition is not to read the records with pre-conceived thoughts and beliefs or surprises are certain. When going back in time or even future one never knows what he could learn about himself and not all things are nice, fluffy, and bright … Remember that as a rule as souls we experience all aspects of life, including the darker ones.

Akashic records how to read
Usually, the process of akashic reading involves some kind of grounding or purification first, aligning yourself with protective guides and protective energy.
This also helps you to align with your best ideals and intentions and prohibits you from approaching the Akashic Records with too much emphasis on ego or with unintended wicked intentions.
1. Balance and Ground yourself
Before your venture on and enter some specific akashic reading procedure, first connect with your higher self. You may want to do a 10-15 minute meditation or some breathwork to release any fear or worry before entering.
2. Do an opening meditation or prayer
There are many ways to connect to the Akashic Records.
There are many prayers to be found on the net and in books about this. Or you can use an akashic records meditation to connect to the Akasha.
Use the one that connects and resonates deeply with you. This is a tool that is accessible to everyone provided he fulfills the conditions mentioned before, or the reading will be heavily distorted.
For instance, a good number of people use the Pathway Prayer procedure, but there are numerous others. Whichever you chose, try to feel if you really connected with the higher beings you called upon, and further to the Akashic records.
If you miss this step your journey into the records is at risk.
3. Ask to connect to a specific time and place, or ask for information
Once you feel connected to the akashic records by the agency of the higher beings you called for help, ask for the information you looking for, and be specific. Alternatively, you can ask to connect to a specific time and place in your past or future where you know the keys to what’s happening to you now are.
Feel free to be specific and ask about for instance events in the past belonging to a fear you are struggling with now. Ask about your past lives, about the people and soul contracts you have in this lifetime, and about what creative project to play with next. Nothing is off-limits. Go as deep as you want. Perhaps get clarity and answers on an illness or disease you need healing in.
4. You receive only what’s relevant for you now
Akashic reading is not entertainment even if it looks cool. Going there is not for fun.
You may feel called to a certain time period and ask for the records of information on a possible life at that time, but you only receive the information that is important for you in this life, in this body, at this particular time. The Akashic Records only reveal to you what you need to learn at that moment, at that time, to support you on your journey in the Now moment.
If you ask for things that don’t belong to your soul history and start asking for instance to be connected to the moment and place when JFK was shot to see the assassin with your own eyes, you won’t get access.
Trust that what you’re receiving is what you’re meant to have.
5. Close the Records
After receiving the information you need, you’ll need to close the records. In general, you don’t want to live them open. Next time you might not get access to them again for this reason.
Ask for Permission if trying to read the Akasha for someone else
If trying to read the info for another soul you need to ask them for permission first. You also should avoid reading a child’s records unless it’s your child, and even then you need his soul's permission.
Reading someone else’s Akashic records needs you to be on a higher vibration as a soul than the usual Akashic records reader, or else you won’t get access to them.
What to expect from akashic reading and healing
Often the entire experience, and all the information received, feels like a fuzzy dream, like trying to remember a movie you watched a few days ago. You may receive a lot of visual information in a short amount of time, so keeping a journal just for your Akashic Record experiences so to keep track of and compare them could be a good idea.
When used appropriately, the Akashic Records can accentuate your spiritual growth, healing, wisdom, and development. You can learn your soul's purpose, the causes of hurdles along your life path, your main life lessons in this life, and so on.
Always be sure to act with the highest ethics when visiting the Akashic Records. If your intentions are good, your guides will be able to lead you to helpful and healing information.
You can access information that helps to give you a more accurate psychic sense during your readings. You can also develop a more advanced big-picture view of situations that have affected you personally.
Questions should generally be open like How, What, Why etc. so as to download relevant information. Simple Yes and No questions could make you miss the circumstances of the events you are asking about.
Through the Records, we can download information regarding any imaginable topic and question — as long as the questions are self-focused (if you’re reading for yourself) and open-ended.
Working with the Akashic Records can help you delve into past lives and future potential. This can enhance your psychic work and help you re-align with your best version of yourself and your optimal destiny path.
When doing the Akashic Records readings you’re looking at the highest possible view of events accessible to you. Therefore, the information may be sent in more symbolic ways.
This can lead to greater healing and understanding. You may have an emotionally cleansing experience when you visit the Akashic Records. You may come away with a deeper understanding of the issues that led to a divorce or a breakup from a good friend for example.
You may also come away with a stronger sense of your mission and purpose because of information gleaned from the Akashic Records.
On the other hand, don’t forget that Creation gave you everything you need Here and Now. Only after making all honest efforts in the Now unsuccessfully, it’s worth taking a journey into the Akashic fields.
