Look, I’m not going lie and pretend like I’m some expert on quantum physics, but the idea of alternate reality has always intrigued me. The truth is, skeptic or not, the idea that time is malleable—and that the past. present and future may, in fact, coexist at the same moment—is something that is not exactly provable or disprovable. This is why the concept of the Akashic Records is so damn intriguing.
I’ve been around the wellness block enough times to hear whisperings of its magic—and how these mystical “records” hold all the secrets to the universe. But what are they exactly? And do they really hold the secrets to the universe? I did a little digging to find out what all the fuss was about.
What are the akashic records?
The Akashic Records are a collection of all human events, thoughts, words, emotions, and intent to have ever occurred in the past, present, and future. They’re a record of each soul’s journey to the infinite, and they exist on a non-physical plane. Basically, think of them as “The Book of Life” with a dash of quantum physics thrown in.
What do you mean they’re not on the physical plane?
Without getting too deep into quantum physics, according to the Records, they exist in another dimension called the Akasha. Not unlike String Theory (if you’re familiar), the Akashic Records is basically like a database that exists in the Akashadimension. It’s a collection of what is happening in the past, present, and future—all of the universes that are co-existing together.
What do they do?
Accessing our Akashic Records can help guide us in many ways. It can help to clear karma from our past lives and allow us to unblock areas that might unconsciously be holding us back. The biggest benefit one can get from opening the Akashic Records is getting to know oneself—why you are the way you are, why you react the ways that you do, why you are preconditioned to think certain ways. It’s all in the Records.
How can you read them?
Some people can access Records by doing past life regression. It’s a good way to find out more about and clear your past life trauma. Or you can locate a certified Akashic Record teacher that can help lead you through your Records. Believer, or not, it’s definitely an interesting idea. And let’s be honest, who wouldn’t want to clear past life karma, and make way for the limitless bountiful life we all deserve?
