‘Why am I here and for what purpose? Put simply, I believe this fundamental question has always been and continues to be, the driving force behind our need to explore, know, question and discover, and the very results of our endeavor to answer this question, are manifest in every conceivable form, across every spectrum, both energetically and physically.
As a child, I was blessed with a mother who’s firm belief in Reincarnation allowed her to context many a question (asked by me), from the view point that we are forever returning, learning, and going home in cycles.
Had I have been raised with the view that we are here for one short lifetime and we are no more and no less than our physical being, then tackling the age- old question of life’s purpose and meaning – would have represented an exercise in meaninglessness. Let’s be practical - how much can one soul truly be expected to accomplish, in one short life-time?
In order to know why we are born, we need to understand where it is we return to when we die, and what it is like before we are born again. This is where the existence of the Akashic Records serves any of us who are driven to explore, and have the courage to face every thought, intention and action undertaken by us over lifetimes. As well as view any number of intended possible future lifetimes and paths.
The Akashic Book of Records is referenced in a great many cultures, including Sanskrit philosophy and Indian mythology and is identified in both the Old and New Testaments as ‘The Book of Life’. It is traceable at least as far back as the Semitic peoples and includes the Arabs, the Assyrians, the Phoenicians, the Babylonians, and the Hebrews. All of these cultures maintained the belief that there is in existence, some kind of celestial tablets,’ or recording, which contains the history of humankind as well as all manner of spiritual information.
Edgar Cayce remains possibly the most extensive source of contemporary knowledge when speaking of the Akashic Records. When asked how he ‘sourced’ the information he provided when giving a Psychic/ Clairvoyant reading he replied that there essentially two divine ‘Sources ‘ of information he was privy to, those being, The ‘Book of Life’ and The Akashic Records.
In describing the ‘Book of Life’ he said that it was ‘a record of God, of thee, thy soul within and the knowledge of the same’. When speaking of the ‘Akashic Records’ he suggests that each of us writes the story of our lives through our thoughts, our deeds, and our interactions with the rest of creation. It is also suggested in his Readings, that the Records are not simply a transcription of the past but include the present, the future, and certain probabilities as well. This information effects us in the here and now. In fact, the Akashic Records has such an impact on our lives and the potentials and probabilities we draw toward us that any exploration of them cannot do anything other then provide us with insights into the nature of ourselves, and our relationship with the Universe.
‘There is much more to our lives, our histories, and our individual influence upon our tomorrows, than we have perhaps dared to imagine. By accessing information from the Akashic Records, the universe's computer database, much might be revealed to us. The world as we have collectively perceived it is but a faint shadow of reality.’ Adapted from: ‘Edgar Cayce on the Akashic Records’ by Kevin J. Todeschi
So, given all of the above, you can well understand my enduring interest in the Edgar Cayce Readings/Predications, and in particular the Akashic Book of Records.
While researching for this blog it became apparent that there are a number of well educated and spiritually attuned practitioners working with ‘The Akashic Records’ and Akasha energy, as well as an enormous range of published titles available to all on the same subject.
Should Spirit move you to seek personal knowledge and information from the Akashic Records I would encourage you to trust your instincts and explore both written knowledge and perhaps a consultation, with a metaphysical practitioner working with the Akasha .
As a practical measure I would always advise a little research and (where possible), active verification of the consultants’ experience and credentials in the field prior to making your appointment.
"Whether it's technology, transportation, communication, education, or entertainment, the computer age has revolutionized the globe and the ways in which we understand and interact with one another. No segment of modern society has gone unaffected. The amount of information now stored in computer memory and crossing the Internet highway daily is literally unfathomable. And yet, this vast complex of computer systems and collective databases cannot begin to come close to the power, the memory, or the omniscient recording capacity of the Akashic Records." ~ Lucy Rinehart (Published Oct 16, 2008)
