The akashic records have been referred to as an etheric place where all thoughts, actions and words have been recorded in a universal filing system, comparable to the collective unconscious. It is believed that the akashic records hold the key to finding the answers that will help obtain useful knowledge and clear energy blockages so you can be released from destructive patterns and dysfunctional relationships and enjoy a brighter, richer future. Feeling lighter, greater inner peace, calmness, joy and a deeper understanding of their purpose in this life have been reported after seeking this kind of information and clearing one's akashic records.
This exercise was extracted from Christopher Penczak's "Ascension Magick, Ritual, Myth, & Healing for the new Aeon."
Give background information about the akashic records. These "files" are in a temple that houses all information on anything ever said, thought or done. It appears as a large building with miles of shelves containing books, scrolls, tapes and other devices that surpass our current technology. This building has two sections, one with general information and one called the living-record section where there is a large screen and information is projected around the individual.
One can access any information about themselves or some information on others. It is not considered nosy if you seek answers to your questions. If you are not supposed to know the information, it will not be given. The information presents itself quickly and in many different forms. Some information in your personal chart is not revealed to you to ensure that life lessons are properly learned on their own. Spirit guides are allowed to read them though, if you give permission to do so and will give guidance in the most appropriate way for growth and well being.
Instruct the person/people to sit in a comfortable position with no distractions such as TV, phone and loud noises. Dim the lights.
Remind them to relax the body slowly from the top of the head to the toes, releasing tension in each part, feeling waves of relaxation moving throughout the body.
Tell them to imagine a blank movie screen and that they control everything that happens on that screen. Instruct them to imagine the number 12 on the screen, allowing the number to stay on the screen for a moment, and then let it fade or erase it. Repeat the process, digressing numerically until they reach the number one.
Tell them to release this image of the screen and then slowly and silently counting from 13 to one. For a moment, allow them to enjoy this calm alpha state.
Tell them to call upon the divine, in whatever form they best feel comfortable---God, Goddess, Spirit, etc. They should ask this individual to help them consciously connect with the source, asking for guidance and protection, and for any other spirits to be part of this activity if it is appropriate.
Instruct them to bring their attention to each direction, acknowledging the power of each. They should give attention to the heavens above them and the space below. Bring their attention to their hearts.
Tell them to imagine a shaft of light coming down from above, surrounding them with light, continuing down to the middle of the planet. Now they are aligned with other dimensions and are ready for interdimensional communication and journey.
Advise them to ask for an ascended master to help guide them in this part of the process.
Tell them to imagine the pillar of light that surrounds them becoming a spiral staircase or elevator. Their guide will be there and will show them what needs to be done.
Tell them to specifically ask to see the akashic records for their soul history or whatever other information that they would like to be shown. This information can be acquired in the living-record section or the general information. Tell them to hold whatever intention that has brought them there.
Tell them to allow the answers to their questions to present themselves. Akashic records can appear in many different ways. They may watch it on a screen, may see words, the records may manifest to them, they may see it in their inner sight, on a computer terminal, or an old fashioned library with books and scrolls. Tell them to follow their intuition and their guide.
Let them know that they can ask their guide any questions that they may have, such as what the significance of the information has in their current life, how they can use it and how they can correctly access the information that is for their highest good.
Tell them that they can ask their guide for assistance to clear any negative energy that is held from previous lifetimes which is preventing them from living up to their potential.
Give them ample time to experience and process this. Have them return to their body when they have finished, remembering to ground themselves and then record they experiences in a notebook. A group discussion on the experience can follow or just give time for self reflection.
