Akashic Records FAQ

BY Suzanne West

Would you like to learn more about the Akashic Records? Here are the answers to some frequently asked questions.

What are the Akashic Records?

The Akashic Records contain the energetic imprint of every being, human or otherwise, that has ever lived, throughout time. All of the information from each of your incarnations is contained in the Akashic Records, ready to be accessed to give you a broader and deeper perspective of your Soul’s journey. Each person has their own guides that operate as a collective to offer guidance, support, and wisdom.

The Akashic Records are the storehouse for everything you’ve experienced since you first individuated from Source. I like to tell a little creation story to help illustrate this idea: 

Imagine that you were once a part of the ocean of Source. You were completely merged with the ebb and flow of all that water. Then one day you began to notice that your little drop within the vast ocean of Source was a bit different from the drops next to you. Maybe you noticed that your drop was turquoise while another drop was emerald green; or your drop was dancing in the foam on the surface while other drops were deep down in the ocean.

That ‘aha’ moment when you became aware of yourself as a unique and separate “drop” was the moment your soul was born. And from that time on, your Akashic Records began to carry the frequency of your particular soul’s vibration.

What kind of questions can I ask the Akashic Records?

When seeking answers to life’s dilemmas in the Akashic Records, it is not about finding cut and dried solutions, it’s about working with themes and patterns to evolve in new directions for your highest good. The initial question you bring to an Akashic Records session is only the jumping off place for an unfolding journey and conversation with your guides.

The most fruitful questions are open-ended. For example, instead of asking: ‘When or where will I meet the partner of my dreams?’, it is more helpful to ask: ‘What kind of partner will be best for me?’ or ‘How can I prepare for the kind of relationship I long for?’

If you don’t have a particular question in mind, you can always ask: ‘What is my truth today?’ or ‘What serves my evolution?’

Can past lives be accessed in the Akashic Records?

Past lives may come up in an Akashic Records session, but not in a linear way. The past life that’s revealed might be an actual historical previous lifetime, yet it’s just as likely to be a story or metaphor that helps to bring awareness to repeated themes and patterns that need your attention.

An exploration of past lives is most useful in the context of gaining greater understanding of current issues in your life. For example, it may be exciting to learn that you were Cleopatra’s handmaiden, but what are you going to do with that information? Perhaps it will show that you need to address issues about feeling you are in servitude to women in authority, like a boss or female relative. 

Past life information is only helpful if it reveals patterns and themes that are active in your current incarnation. Your Akashic Records are most interested in helping you use this information to shift to greater flow and healthier patterns in THIS lifetime.

Can my Akashic Records be changed?

Your Akashic Records are already always in motion, so you don’t need to worry about trying to change them. Your soul and personality are always evolving in partnership with each other. Every new awareness that you have, in or out of your Akashic Records, contributes to this shifting awareness. 

The Akashic Records are not linear or fixed, but a dynamic flow of energy. They hold the frequency of Sacred Space and Sacred Time. When your Akashic Records are opened you are connecting to the Sacred Now of your soul, which is always evolving.

How can the Akashic Records help when I’m feeling stuck?

One example of feeling stuck is an either/or dilemma where you are struggling in a relationship and trying to decide whether to leave your partner or stay. Your mind swings back and forth between the two choices, and you feel all churned up inside with an urgency to decide one way or the other.

However, either/or doesn’t really exist in the Akashic Records, as the guides tend to look at issues from a more unified perspective. A metaphor that they often share when someone is stuck in an either/or dilemma is the image of a seesaw. You go up or down depending on which choice feels more right in the moment. But as soon as you’ve gone down on one side, the opposite motion brings you back down to the other side. You keep tipping back and forth between the two choices.

A helpful visualization exercise when you’re stuck on the either/or seesaw is to imagine that you are standing in the middle of the seesaw, at the fulcrum. You can gently shift towards one direction or the other, while maintaining your balance in the center. This metaphor helps you to integrate the two sides of your dilemma into a more unified choice. 

Do I have to do what the Akashic Records tell me to?

Absolutely not! The Akashic Records always support your free-will choices and accept you exactly as you are. They may make suggestions but will never give you orders. The Akashic Records are unconditionally loving and hold the sacred space for your continuing evolution.
