Exploring the Akashic Records – by Sandra Gelinas

From now on my two Akashic Records partners, who’ve collaborated with me in the Akashic Records since 2005, will also be writing articles for what is now “our” column! So you may notice that I’ve changed the name of our column to “Akashic AllianceTM” because that is the name for our joint venture that we received from the Records. Each month one of us will write an article, perhaps about the Records, perhaps not. The good news for you is that instead of this column appearing only four times yearly, you’ll now find an interesting and educational article here each month.

Bright Logo with wordsSo this month, I’m honored to introduce Chanda Nancy Berlatsky and Nancy Ring to you. This is our story of how the Records brought the three of us together to bring forth original Akashic material, although we were busy women living in three different cities and two different time zones.

I could give you the condensed, rather dry version but since this publication is called The Magic Happens, I’m going to share a more complete version so you can see how magic does happen – even, or maybe especially, when you’re not looking for it! I invite you to take a few minutes and join me on our journey of discovery.

After learning to access my personal Records in 2004, I decided to continue my training and learn to open the Records of other people, hoping I would feel more confident when exploring my own Records. I had no intention of becoming an Akashic Records consultant. I was only seeking confirmation – through some friends and perhaps even a few strangers – that I was receiving accurate information from their Records. Little did I know!

On a beautiful day in March 2005, our teacher and her students arrived for the weekend workshop I hosted in my living room. One of the students was Nancy, a highly sought after executive coach from Charlotte, North Carolina, a three hour drive from my home. When the time came to have our first experience of opening someone else’s Records, I totally panicked. Even though I’d been looking for someone to teach me how to open the Records of clients since I was a naturopath in Australia in the early 1980’s, now that it was finally happening – I was paralyzed with fear.

Our teacher, directed by the Records, paired me with Nancy. (Remember – there are no coincidences.) I immediately informed Nancy of my anxiety and asked her to open my Records first. She graciously accepted and did such a great job that I immediately felt empowered to return the favor and open hers. It was a very successful experience for us both – in many ways. In fact we enjoyed it so much that we agreed to meet monthly by phone to continue opening each other’s Records. So that’s how Nancy and I were brought together and we’ve been best friends ever since.

My connection with Chanda was a little more complicated. (I think the Divine had to work overtime on this one!) Around the same time that I was first exploring my personal Records, an acquaintance and her husband organized a time share in Sedona, Arizona that “happened” to have a second bedroom. We “happened” to have lunch together the week before her trip. Over lunch she mentioned her travel plans and without thought, I said: “I’ve always longed to go to Sedona!” She immediately invited me to come with them and after she checked with her husband, I jumped at the chance even though I didn’t know them well. The pull to visit Sedona was that intense.

Frequent flyer points I had to use or lose “magically” provided free airfare on their same flight, the time share and car rental were already arranged, so my only financial commitment was to pay for our meals. As I was packing, my intuition loudly and clearly said: “Go check the internet and see if someone does LBL’s in Sedona.” [Side story: I’d recently read three books by Dr. Michael Newton about Life Between Lives (LBL’s) and decided to explore what happens between my physical incarnations as soon as I could. However, none of the nearby practitioners listed on Dr. Newton’s website felt right to me, so I’d regretfully put the idea aside.]

Immediately, I checked the internet. Yes! There was an LBL practitioner in Sedona whose approach to LBL’s finally resonated with me. Well – wasn’t that interesting?

I quickly called Chanda who answered the phone, (amazing) and who was able to give me an LBL appointment on the very day that worked best for me (amazing). Days later, as I was leaving her office after my LBL, I spontaneously invited Chanda to stay with me in North Carolina so my friends could also have an LBL experience. Chanda once again agreed. Now I know her better, I realize how amazing all these steps were and appreciate how the path for us to work together opened for us with such grace and ease.

When I hosted Chanda at my home in North Carolina a few months later, she presented a well-attended workshop and facilitated several LBL sessions. We also went to two Akashic workshops together so Chanda could learn to open her own Records one weekend and the Records of others the next weekend. We quickly became best friends even though we’ve only seen each other in person a few times over all these years.

So that’s how I met these two very special women with Divine Guidance every step of the way. Now let’s see what happened next.

After Nancy and I worked together in the Records on own personal growth for some time, we became aware our Records were inviting us to teach people how to open their Records. Naturally, we thought this meant completing the Akashic Records Consultants International (ARCI) teacher-training program – our teachers at the time.

Much to our surprise, we discovered this was not our path. Instead, our Records asked us to bring forth a new method to access the Akashic Records and a new process to teach this method to others. Both the method and workshop to teach it were to come directly from the Records. This amazed us, (and frankly overwhelmed me), as it was not what either of us had been seeking.

At this point Chanda contacted me with relevant information she had received while pursuing other enquiries in the Records. She too was being invited to bring in a new way to access the Records! That’s when things really began to get exciting. All three of us checked with our personal Records and received independent confirmation that the three of us were to work together to bring forth this new information from the Akashic Records.

Therefore, in early June 2006 we began regular weekly teleconference calls, as our schedules permitted, so the three of us – Nancy in Charlotte, NC, Chanda in Sedona, AZ, and myself in Hendersonville, NC – could work together. Our routine settled into group personal Records work in the mornings to clear each of us so we could work together more effectively in the afternoons, when we would turn our attention to the new information awaiting us in the Records.

We discovered this new method to access the Records, and possibly eventually the Divine, would be non-denominational and gender free, while incorporating energetics and spiritual knowledge newly available as we moved into the 21st century. Not only did they give us the actual Method to Open, and other Akashic tools, but the Records also created a simple and clear training process. The Records became our new Akashic teachers. We still learn every time we facilitate this training for others or take clients into their Records with us for private Akashic sessions.

Gradually, it became apparent we were being given the opportunity to do much more than discover and then teach people a new method to open their personal Akashic Records. The concept of an alliance with the three of us working together and with the Akashic Records – the Akashic AllianceTM – then manifested to expand our viewpoint from basic workshops, to Akashic trainings for specific interest groups like artists and writers, to international Akashic training tours, to research and publishing. You can see how the Records of this project have guided us gently step by step, as we were ready and able to receive more of their vision.

In April 2007 Chanda, Nancy and I came together to co-present our method to access personal Records (Module A) for the first time to an enthusiastic group at my home. The group loved it and many immediately asked for Module B so they could learn to access the Records for others.

Back to the Records we went and in June 2010 I was delighted to facilitate our first Module B titled: “Learn to Access and Explore the Akashic Records of Other People, Places, and Things.”

Since then we solo teach groups or individual students in person or by teleclass, throughout the United States or overseas. Whenever I think about all that has happened over these years, how it has brought such joy to us and many others, I am still amazed at how we were brought together and what our alliance with the Records has achieved. I’m sure we will continue to have many exciting Akashic adventures together.


I invite you to join me in my affirmation for this month:

“The Divine now offers me the ideal opportunity for my soul’s growth.”
May you too find magic happens often in your life!

Now that we’ve met, I look forward to answering your questions related to accessing and exploring the Akashic Records or other topics. You may email me at spiritworks@wildblue.net or find more information at my website: www.spiritworks.byregion.net. You’ll have the opportunity to meet Nancy in September and Chanda in October. I look forward to what they will share with us all.
