Typically when someone calls for their first Akashic Records consultation, I’m guided to ask what they know about the Records. While you might think that understanding what the Records are would be essential before one of these sessions, but it’s not.
As it turns out, the most important thing people need to understand is that “truth” in the Records is different than it is to most of us in our three-dimensional lives.
Truth in the Records is deeper. It’s more expansive, and more timeless.
Truth in the Records is something our hearts often recognize even when our heads want to deny it.
Usually these conversations start like this.
There are three basic ways information comes through the Records. The first is what we might call verifiable fact. Let’s say you are asking your Records about a problem you are having with your father. The Records tell you this dynamic began two life times ago in Boston when your father was your son. It was 1847, your last name was Jackson and you were living on Boyleston Street. After the session, you might go to City Hall in Boston and find a family named Jackson lived at that address in that year. Isn’t that fascinating?
This is what I’ve come to call the “National Enquirer” approach to the Akashic Records. And, while at first I thought I wanted to know who I was in the 12th and 13th centuries, it took less than 10 minutes during my first Akashic consultation to realize I was wrong.
Quickly and clearly I realized that there was something much deeper, much more interesting, and far more important available here than names, dates and location.
And that leads us to the second way that information comes through in the Records – through parable. For example, if I want to heal my fear of heights, and the Records may tell me this fear began 13 life times ago when I was living in what we now call Mexico.
I can either listen to what happened in each of those life times, which might take 13 appointments, or, I can trust that my higher self and my Akashic Records will wrap up the key elements of those lives in a parable, or story, about one or two life times.
I still will get the essential dynamics, or the underlying truths, and do all the releasing and forgiving that is needed to begin healing my fear of heights. This approach both decreases the chances that I will re-experience any of these initial events, and it saves time and energy. But I won’t get as much detail about who did what to whom, where and when.
And the third way that information comes through the Records? Well, that is through contrast.
Yes, sometimes the Records will tell us something that is not true, knowing it is exactly what we need to hear — and then bounce off from — to open to a truth we otherwise could not accept.
“No, my mother wasn’t really mean! She was just strict because I needed boundaries. She loved me,” is a typical example of what I might hear from someone reacting to what their Records guided me to say, like, “Seems like your mom could be pretty mean.”
Had I first said “Your mom was strict because she loved you,” the person would resist. But in reacting against its contrast, they could open.
The longer I work in the Akashic Records – both mine and those of others — the more I realize that the most important truth we find there doesn’t come from facts. It comes from a download of consciousness we receive whenever we open the Records and ask for guidance or healing or peace or patience — or whatever else we think we need.
Sometimes we know consciously what we receive, but mostly, I believe we are given more than we even know to request. Maybe some day we will be able to connect a new thought, or an event to what we learned from the Records, and maybe we never will.
But the longer we work in the Records, the more often we find ourselves understanding things we never realized we knew. Or, we’ll be comfortable with something that used to drive us crazy, but not know how or why we made the shift.
New truths just appear. And while our heads can’t necessarily “prove” them with “facts,” our hearts are certain they are true.
