In theosophy and anthroposophy, the Akashic records or (Karma) are a compendium of all human events, thoughts, words, emotions, and intent ever to have occurred in the past, present, or future. They are believed by theosophists to be encoded in a non-physical plane of existence known as the etheric plane. There are anecdotal accounts but no scientific evidence for the existence of the Akashic records.
I have only recently discovered the Akashic Records through my research into Sanskrit. The term ‘Akasha’ was introduced to the language of theosophy by H.P Blavatsky in the 18 hundreds who deemed it the realm of all life and claimed it recorded both the past and future thoughts and actions of every human as well as recording all of the desires and earth experiences of our planet. It was not until 1883 that Alfred Percy Sinnet author of ‘Esoteric Buddhism’ who further researched the Buddhist’s belief in ‘a permanency of records in the Akasa’ expressed the ability for humans to access and read them for themselves.
Nevertheless, many authors throughout history have claimed that only clairvoyants can access these records or a trained occultist can distinguish the difference between our imagination and the actual records, also referred to as astral pictures.
Akashic/Karma Records in Religious Texts
Upon delving deeper into this subject, Buddhists believe that Akasha or the astral world is where karma is determined and is depicted as a sort of book or library of books.
In the book The True Nature of Tarot, St Peter is depicted as the IX Pentacles which is referred to as the karmic card in which St Peter is standing at the gates of heaven with a book referred to as the Akashic Records; a list of everything that has been done in the past, the present and will be done in the future.
I began reading the stories of St. Peter who in Matthew 16:19 God stated: “I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven”. St. Peter has been depicted holding keys in Christian art almost since the beginning. It wasn’t really intended that he should be the gatekeeper of heaven, but rather that as the first Pope, “whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven“. St. Peter has many symbols such as the fisherman’s line and a rock/stone but also a book which is believed to be the New Testament of the Bible but earlier so in art, he is depicted with a rolled up scroll that is believed to be two letters attributed to Peter as he is the source of Mark’s gospel, and he preached God’s word. I am curious as to why different religions all reference this ‘book’ to contain Gods word but not yet specifically about what the book contains; only assumptions in most cases or its true description concealed under the term ‘Gods word’. This is no doubt why St Peter is often painted as a figure who sits in front of the Pearly Gates of heaven whilst writing in this book. Could it be that in terms of ‘Gods word’ it is actually referencing to the book of our universe, the Akashic Records?
In the Qu’ran, Islamic faith mentions a ‘Preserved Tablet’ that contains Gods explicit decrees for His creations. These decrees are called, Shariat (شریعت) which means lawfulness and Shar (شرع) means law. Subsequently, every series of the creation of God has laws categorically for them. These set(s) of laws are within the Preserved Tablet and the revelation is given accordingly:
“No calamity befalls on the earth or in you but it is inscribed in the Preserved Tablet before We bring it into existence. Verily, that is easy for God” – Quran, 57:22.
“And it is a Quran which We have separated by intervals that you might recite it to the people over a prolonged period. And we have sent it down progressively” – Quran, 17:106.
Many philosophers believe the route to accessing your own Akasha records is through the connection with your soul. Linda Howe; a researcher of spirituality and meditation publishing many books on the topic refers to a specific pathway she used to access her own. The Pathway Prayer is something Linda has often used to guarantee her safety in accessing her records as well as returning back to her human form which she recites whilst meditating. Linda claims that this specific prayer allows the person to reach a place where they can receive and remember the information. Furthermore, with practice, it allows us to call upon any beings records. This practice is not meant to be something we do once, but often until we feel comfortable and more accepting of this information. The first experience is often clouded by worry or panic as to remembering the information or having to write it down so we do not forget, however with time, such as with meditation, it will be easier to understand and manage the experience. If you have a very specific set of questions you are needing answering then the experience has been described as long and fulfilling.
The point of accessing these records is so that we realise that we are so much more than our physical form; we are apart of the universe and through this understanding we can begin to connect with Source/God in order to be reassured as to where our path in life goes and what is expected of us which is why meditation is the route to this experience. Ultimately, this experience from various people who have achieved this connection has described it as returning to who we really are and brings a knowledge as to what our influence is in this universe.
For me, this makes me very curious to know how much of these religious texts are misinterpreted or have been edited somewhat, nevertheless, I fear there is a lot of information that has become misconstrued over the centuries and important knowledge that has been withheld from the general population. I, of course, am not a historian nor am I a religious scholar, nevertheless, it does not appear to be difficult now through the internet and various books on the topic to discover that we are on the cusp of finding out what our true abilities and purposes are which I fear, had it been known to men and women throughout the ages, would’ve saved a lot of lives, prevented wars, suicide, feelings of a negative nature to happen.
The Akasha records will undoubtedly welcome those who know themselves and in order to do that, you have to journey through the path of meditation to find that out. Through education, what we are taught as well as our home experiences and teachings will have shaped our minds in a particular way. We learn how to be a person from those around us; how to love, how to hate, what to believe in etcetera. Therefore, meditation can be a tough road for people who do not know where to start which is why I wrote a blog post on meditation and mindfulness for beginners. Again, this is a lifelong process, as we have been denied access to this information for many centuries in the western world. Nevertheless, it will feel natural for you to enter this inner space because it is who we are. We have a connection to our creator and in turn, this arms us with a self-confidence and power than no doubt centuries ago, would’ve been perceived as a dangerous skill if given to the masses. No wonder the burned witches at the stake! If we learn to create a self-love that cannot be broken down by others then we can truly learn to become or be whatever we wish in this universe and understandably that can go against not only our religious beliefs but also our teachings and experience of this life so far. It will also become very apparent than in fact we know nothing of importance at all until we have developed this connection. As soon as we start to acknowledge this information, you will start to question everything we already know to be true.
“Why are we here? Where did we come from?” Are questions that as children we ask a lot and yet as we grow into adults, we may not ask so much out loud because often our parents and guardians have no idea. Hence why the first seven years of a child’s life is so important because as stated in other blogs, we are downloading or absorbing all of the information around us which why it is important that those years are the best of their lives because it is being recorded in their DNA. If we allow children to grow and believe they can become powerful due to their ability to access these records with ease, then by the time they reach adulthood, they will be already on track to fulfil their mission and have the best experience possible.
It is also noted that food plays an integral part in accessing the Akasha records because food is deemed as information and was created by source. More organic fruits and vegetables and consuming fresh foods is more important than on a nutritional level. With so many processed foods these days that no wonder we can not access this information.
The overall point of my divulging this information through this blog is so that we realise we are so much more than what we believe we are; we have access to so many abilities within us and so the question for us all is, are we ready to access this information?
For those that are interested, Linda Howe’s website is filled with her research into the Akashic Records and as mentioned above, the Pathway Prayer is her creation and I have inserted it below.
And so we do acknowledge the Forces of Light, Asking for guidance, direction, and courage to know the Truth As it is revealed for our highest good and the highest good of everyone connected to us. Oh Holy Spirit of God, Protect me from all forms of self-centeredness And direct my attention to the work at hand. Help me to know (myself/first name of individual being read) in the Light of the Akashic Records, To see (myself/first name of individual being read) through the eyes of the Lords of the Records, And enable me to share the wisdom and compassion that the Masters, Teachers, and Loved Ones of (me/first name of individual being read) have for (me/him/her).
would like to thank the Masters, Teachers, and Loved Ones for their love and compassion. I would like to thank the Lords of the Akashic Records for their point of view. And I would like to thank the Holy Spirit of Light for all knowledge and healing. The Records are now closed. Amen. The Records are now closed. Amen The Records are now closed. Amen.
It is good to note that this really is the opportunity for us to gain answers to our questions, it allows us to download a new consciousness, an awakening, it allows us to experience the best life possible and understand that there truly is no beginning and no end. No one is holding us back but ourselves, therefore, we must take a step back and find out what really is happening within the silence and absorb this information so we can have a more fulfilling life as we let go of victimising one another.
