The term “Akasha” comes from a Sanskrit word meaning space or ether. It is an etheric field which contains all the recorded history of past events, both personal and universal. It is often referred to as the “Book of Life”, “Hall of Records” or the “Universal Library.” Imagine the World Wide Web of the everything. No matter how small or large of an event; all thoughts, words and deeds are permanently recorded in this electromagnetic grid. This “database” holds a vast amount of information about each of us and our past lives. Similar to a blueprint, the Akashic Records offer insight into who we really are and who we might become. Each soul has its own Akashic Records, like a series of books with each book representing one lifetime. Everyone has the ability to connect to this source as a spiritual record keeper but some people are trained for this type of research through attuning and meditation. When seeking answers, some rules apply. Questions must be for the highest good and usually information is limited to one’s personal life or universal inquiry not just curiosity about other people and their history. Working in the records requires that one remain connected to higher dimensional beings know as the Lords of the Records. Traditionally, these entities have not incarnated as humans. Their primary purpose is to maintain the records and disseminate information to those requesting entry into this realm. The Lords of the Records often work with personal spirit guides, masters, teachers and past relatives to convey images and information to those who are seeking insight and answers. Archangel Metatron is the highest Divine record-keeper, responsible for overseeing this Universal Library. During his lifetime as Enoch, Metatron was a scribe, performing his duty with absolute integrity.
The renowned “Sleeping Prophet”, Edgar Cayce (1877-1945) tapped into the Records to provide over 14,000 readings while in a trance state. Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925), the Austrian-born philosopher, educator, and founder of the Anthroposophical Society possessed the ability to perceive information beyond the material world: a “spiritual world” which was just as real to him as the physical world was to others.
