It sounds hard to pronounce, but also super magical – maybe like these records are ancient codes that hold all the answers.
And well, that wouldn’t be entirely wrong.
In short, the Akashic Records are similar to a database, where every event, thought, idea, or action – whether it takes place in the past, present, or future – are stored infinitely.
Oh, and to pronounce it: ah-cash-ick
These records live in the Akashic realm, a very high-vibrational realm. Each living or inanimate thing has its own record too – you and your soul, your neighbor and their soul, the house you’re living in, and the potted houseplant on your window sill. Everything.
These records know, basically, everything that will happen (or that has happened) to anything.
Edgar Cayce, a psychic medium who had brought the records to popular attention, says the Records “can be equated to the universe’s super-computer system that acts as the central storehouse of all information. More than just events…the Akashic records contain every deed, word, feeling, thought and intent that has ever occurred.”
So, these records can definitely be used as great and trustworthy guidance on all things in life.
Just like any other tool for divination, like tarot or astrology, someone can ask a question on a given topic, and a professional reader can tap into the Akashic and receive answers and guidance to then share with the questioner.
But here’s where things get tricky: just like any other form of divination, nothing they say is Fate. But it may be the closest thing to it.
Whereas the tarot can predict what is likely to happen should a person continue down the same path with no changes, and astrology can predict the energy and area of life that will be most affected, the Akashic is known to get pretty specific – but even still, it may not be 100% accurate.
Many readers admit that in the Akashic realm, there are infinite possibilities and outcomes for every single thought or action. Every single possibility lives in the Akashic realm. But, the most likely outcome is what gets channeled to the reader.
