Yesterday I looked at my day’s schedule and wished I had time to write my first post on “The Magic Happens”. As it turned out, I wrote the first draft when my 4:30 client and I got our dates mixed up. So, did I create this opportunity by wishing for more time? Or, is this an example of divine timing? Am I co-creating with my higher self, not only in the content of this piece, but also in timing it’s writing? How can being mindful of the easy flow of time and timing provide us guidance about both the big and small aspects of our lives?
My desire for a mindful, reliable “turn it off and turn it on” approach to receiving higher guidance drew me to my first Akashic Records class more than ten years ago. It has become my mindfulness practice. And being of service to others in this way is why I both facilitate individual sessions, and teach Akashic classes. Those of you who have read Sandra Gelinas’ earlier posts here know she feels much the same way. I suspect our partner Chanda Nancy Berlatsky does too.
While the concept of accessing the Akashic Records may seem mystical to many, for me it’s also a very mindful, practical tool for what another client so wisely called, “sorting the signals from the noise”. She then went on to relay her friend’s advice that if you are thinking of someone, it means you should call that person. “I just thought I would call her eventually, but my friend said no, I should call her right away.”
This is a great example of how I might use my Akashic Records. Faced with such friendly advice, I would open my Records and ask questions like, “Why am I thinking of this someone?” or “What guidance does my thinking of her offer me?”
Likely answers? “Yesterday’s conversation with your friend reminded you of the time in the sixth grade when you felt intimidated by the new girl in your class. It’s time now to release and heal this childhood experience of not feeling good enough.” Then my Records would probably walk me through a process for releasing and healing this intimidation.
Another possibility? My Records might guide me to simply call my friend and catch up. Either way, I’d get an answer I know would work for me.
Frankly, this is not the first time this executive coaching client and I have gotten our schedules crossed. Traditional practice in the coaching world is to explore this pattern with the client and determine whether we still are a coaching fit. I might do that, but only after guidance from my Records.
Here’s what I received when I asked about this mix-up. The first piece of information was to be grateful for this time. I then closed my eyes, and asked my Records to connect me to my sacred heart and the well of deep and eternal gratitude that lives there.
Next, I was guided to open the Akashic Records of this article and allow the writing to be done through both the Records and through me. This first draft took about 30 minutes, and they also are suggest I edit it later (which I have done before posting this piece).
With the first draft completed, how did my personal Records suggest I handle the scheduling bumps with this client? First, they guided me to clear any frustration and other negative emotion this situation may have triggered for me. They also recommend I open my Records before our next appointment and ask what to say. They tell me that at this point, there is no reason to do anything but keep it light. If anything changes, I will hear that before our call.
Accessing my Akashic Records gives me the mindful tools I need to get better at living from my soul’s wisdom and healing energies every day. I’m looking forward to sharing with you what I learn in this journey, both from my own Records, and from what I experience with my clients.
