Frequently Asked Questions About the Akashic Records

When I shared The Deep Soul Dive Akashic Records Consultations, I was happy to see a positive response at Soul-filled Life. The new offering is resonating and I love working with others in this deep soul dive way. There are also some very good questions about the Akashic Records. I know this is a new concept for many, and I also had plenty of questions when I started my journey.

To help, I put together a list of answers to the Frequently Asked Questions about the Akashic Records.  Dive in below.

Frequently Asked Questions about the Akashic Records

What are the Akashic Records?

The Akashic Records are a soul-level dimension of consciousness that contains a vibrational record of every individuals' soul and its journey. (To understand what a “dimension of consciousness” is consider when you have a vivid night dream, even though you cannot touch it, there is still a real experience to it.) Akasha is a Sanskrit word, and means "Primary substance, that out of which all things are formed." The Records have also been referred to as The Book of Life.

There are two parts to each person's Record: the blueprint of your soul, which is fixed and changeless, and the dynamic story of your journey through time as a human being, which reflects your conscious evolution.

What can the Akashic Records do for me?

Accessing your Akashic Records can be extremely valuable and supportive on spiritual as well as practical levels. You will have access to clarity, guidance and direction from your Records that can directly support you in making real life changes. A consultation will also help you experience your soul's essence, expression, potential, and purposes. The energy present in the Records is both empowering and uplifting. For some, the activity of being in their Record sheds enough healing light to enable the release of old ideas and patterns.

How do you access my Records and will I feel anything?

The Deep Soul Dive Akashic Records Consultation begins with the Pathway Prayer©, some parts of which are said out loud and some are said silently. The Pathway Prayer Process© provides a reliable and deliberate way to move into and access the consciousness of the Records responsibly and in a disciplined, conscious manner. I also use your full name to access your individual record.

Some people notice a slight energetic shift when their Records are open. This may feel similar to receiving beneficial energy in a healing session, such as Reiki. The process of accessing your Records is completely safe and protected.

When is a good time to have a session?

The decision to have a consultation in your Records is a personal choice. You may be curious and looking for insights or you may need help with a significant life challenge. You can trust your own guidance for when it is the right time for you. If you are feeling a need for support or simply an interest in having a session, then it is the right time.

How is this different from a psychic reading or using intuition?

The Akashic Records is not based in psychic communication. While the two readings may look similar from the outside, the areas of communication, perception and spiritual dimension are different. The Records are not about giving predictions or telling you what to do, but are concerned with your spiritual growth and maturity, and how to realize your full potential.

Intuition, on the other hand, is held and supported within the Records (sort of like a sub-domain contained by the Records). The biggest difference is that intuition is more personal. Intuition could be likened to using a flashlight in a dark room, whereas the Records are like turning on the house lights. Many people find that once they start working in their Records, their intuition improves, as if the light of the Record gets underneath their intuition and supports it.

How do I prepare for a session?

To prepare is simple: you will consider the areas of your life that you would most like to receive information, clarity and understanding. Your questions will guide the reading and clients often ask about career, finances, health, relationships, and creative expression. It is helpful to write down your questions for yourself and bring them to your session (you do not need to send them to me ahead of time.)

What types of questions work best?

You will receive clarity and guidance from the Records, but because it is different from a divination tool there are questions that work better than others. Simple yes or no questions (i.e.Will I get this job?) as well as inquiries about timing (i.e. When will I meet my soul mate?) are less useful in the Records. Instead, questions that invite a deeper response often begin with how, what, and why: How can I make the most of this situation? What do I need to do or understand to move past this? Why did I have this particular experience? How can I manifest what I am wanting? What is the next best step on my path?

There are different methods of Akashic Record readings, what is your training and background?

I received my Advanced Training Certification from Linda Howe and The Center for Akashic Studies. Linda Howe has been working in the records since 1994 and was given her Pathway Prayer Process© in September 2001.  Linda describes her method as going into the "heart" of the records.  I believe I was drawn to this specific process, because I resonate with the energy and love that is present (before discovering Linda's teachings, I only had a mild curiosity about the Records.)
