Out of the blue one day, I decided to browse a bookstore in Fort Collins, Colorado. There wasn’t anything in particular I wanted to purchase but I had a feeling that the right book would jump out at me. I spent quite a bit of time there but did not find anything that I wanted to get. On my way out the door, a book caught my eye, ‘HOW TO READ THE AKASHIC RECORDS’ by Linda Howe. In addition, a book by Rudolph Steiner caught my eye, ‘ISIS MARY SOPHIA’. I decided to pick up both of these books.
I first read the book by Linda Howe (in an evening). It was transformative! Howe wrote about Rudolph Steiner, amoungst others, receiving knowledge and wisdom by accessing the Akashic Records. Steiner’s work on Anthroposophy came to him through the Records, a fact I was not aware of. I then picked up Steiner’s book and this fact was confirmed. His work, too, was transformative and profound on many levels.
Buying Howe’s book was my first conscious step being called to the Records. Through a series of awarenesses, I was compelled to open up to accessing the Akashic Records myself. At first, I had thoughts like: ‘Who am I to think I can do this?’ ‘ How do I know that what comes to me is actually being received from the Records?’ ‘How can I trust myself, let alone impart this knowledge to others?’ ‘What if I’m wrong and the information I share with someone ends up hurting them?’ I battled with these fears for a while but my intuition was strong and somehow I was convinced to do the work.
A series of validating experiences happened; for example, I was working with a client and this crazy scenario came to me. I thought to myself that if I actually shared this with her, she would think I was a nut and run for the hills. I shared what came up and she told me that a couple of years ago, she had a reading by a very well respected Ayurvedic Astrologer who told her the exact same thing. More confirmation and validation happened until I fully trusted.
Opening up the the Records and sharing information from the Records with others has been tremendously healing. Trusting myself and my work, and knowing that each of us always gets what we need, even when life circumstances seem to be in dire straits, has been empowering. The Akashic Records are available to each of us and we all have the ability to access the Records; it’s a matter of making the choice to do so.
In ‘HOW TO READ THE AKASHIC RECORDS’, Howe describes the Records as ‘…a dimension of consciousness that contains a vibrational record of every soul and its journey. This vibrational body of consciousness exists everywhere in its entirety and is completely available at all times and in all places. As such, the Records are an experiential body of knowledge that contains everything that every soul has ever thought, said, and done over the course of its existence, as well as all its future possibilities.’
Something I found interesting is that the Akashic Records are referred to in several faith traditions, including Christianity. It is written about in several places in the Christian bible; including the Psalms, Hebrews and Revelations, and is often referred to as the Book of Life.
