In the realm of spirituality, you will likely come across many individuals discussing the Akashic records. According to this concept, the Akashic records contain information about the entire universe, including every minute detail within it.
The word "Akashic" has its origins in the Sanskrit word Akasha, which refers to "space," "sky," or "ether." As such, it is believed that the Akashic records exist on a vibrational level far beyond our current state of being, and they contain records of all aspects of every occurrence that has taken place in the universe. This includes not only human lifetimes and all intelligent beings but also every event in Creation.
While the definition of the Akashic records may vary slightly depending on the source, the most commonly accepted definition is the one mentioned above. Keep this in mind as you delve deeper into the fascinating world of spirituality and explore the many concepts and beliefs that exist within it.
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 in this subject. Therefore, I will explain to you further below more of this, both from the established point of view and 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 actually is, 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.
Helena Blavatsky, a famous occultist, and founder of the Theosophical Society spoke of the existence of “tablets of light” which contained all information about all people, places, events, and time.
My research and practice in accessing directly the Akashic records led me to 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 5th 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 are 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 the 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, you can consider another Akashic records definition. As such, you can consider the Akashic Records 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.
Prerequisites for a successful Akashic reading
In order to access the Akashic records effectively, it is crucial to approach the task from an external perspective, much like connecting to a database. Being immersed in daily life and human concerns, as souls in bodies often are, can make it difficult to suddenly connect with events from thousands of years ago in a specific location.
A common obstacle to accessing the Akashic records is the tendency for individuals to be overly focused on their thoughts rather than on their souls. This is problematic because the intellect is closely tied to the ego, which relies on fear to keep us safe. Additionally, holding onto energetic trauma can influence one's thinking and decision-making, akin to looking through a pair of dirty glasses that obscure one's view.
To transcend this lower vibrational plane, it is necessary to elevate both soul and body vibrations, attain a suitable vantage point, and accurately connect with the desired point in time and space. This is no small feat. It is worth noting that, in my research, I have encountered many mediums who claim to connect with the Akashic records but are actually engaging with their own minds due to a failure to meet these fundamental requirements.
Anyone who satisfies the above conditions can potentially access their own Akashic records, as long as they:
achieve the minimum soul and body vibration levels, and
undergo calibration with a skilled Akashic reader.
It is also vital not to approach the records with preconceived notions or beliefs, as unexpected findings are likely. When exploring the past or future, it is essential to remember that the soul's journey encompasses all aspects of life, including the darker ones. Not everything encountered in the Akashic records will be pleasant or uplifting, but it is all part of the rich tapestry of the soul's experiences.

How to read the Akashic records
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 for Akashic records reading
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 choose, 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 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.
Exploring the Akashic Records enables you to delve into past lives and uncover future potential, significantly enhancing your psychic work and guiding you toward the best version of yourself and your ideal destiny.
When conducting Akashic Records readings you gain access to the most elevated perspective of events available to you. As a result, the information received may be presented in a more symbolic manner.
This exploration can lead to profound healing and comprehension. For instance, engaging with the Akashic Records can facilitate an emotionally purifying experience, providing you with a more profound understanding of the circumstances that caused a divorce or the end of a close friendship.
Furthermore, the insights gained from the Akashic Records can instill a more robust sense of your mission and purpose in life.
However, bear in mind that Creation has already equipped you with everything necessary for the Present moment. It is only after exhausting all genuine efforts in the present without success that it becomes worthwhile to venture into the realm of the Akashic fields.
