I know that many of you are drawn to working in your Akashic Record, using the Pathway Prayer Process© — but you never want to do readings for other people. And you know what? That’s perfectly fine. You don’t have to. Nowhere is it written that, if you work in the Records, you have to do readings for others. You can use this realm for yourself on this Amazing Akashic Adventure. Let me explain how this works.
The Akashic Records are an infinite spiritual resource supporting our personal growth, awareness, and transformation. The Record lets the Light shine through us at a rate which we can manage, so that we don’t become out of balance.
When we work in our Record, it can actually seem like something’s missing, because we’re not getting commands, or some dis-incarnate beings telling us what to do. It’s more like we step into a space of reverence, a sanctuary where we feel very safe — and so all the great truths living within us are free to come into our conscious thoughts.
Now, even just hearing or saying that, you and I both understand that this does not happen in a moment. Working in our Record is relational and develops over time. If you have a friend, sometimes you get together and it’s intense, exciting, or juicy and wonderful, and nobody can stop talking. Other times, it’s just okay. Nice, but nothing spectacular.
So I’m inviting you to step back and look at the possibility of working in your own Record, using the Pathway Prayer Process. You can cultivate a long-term valuable relationship, where you can get honest insight, guidance, and wisdom. You can be empowered and inspired to make the best choices on your behalf!
I have found that one of the best ways to work in my Record is with a journal. I write my question down, then open my Record and ask the question. Almost as if I’m having a conversation with a collective wisdom, and I’ll start writing. You know how to journal; you just write.
What begins to happen when we’re journaling is, we start with what we already know. There’s no other place to start, right? We can only start from where we are. So don’t panic if you think, “I already know this.” Of course you do, but it’s your launching pad. What you already know, who you already have become, is your platform; and we just continue to ask.
When we work in the Record, if something doesn’t make sense, we start writing, “I don’t know what this is.” These aren’t medieval times; it’s the 21st century — and you are considered an equal partner. In a co-creative partnership. Your input and responses are valued in the Record, so you can say, “I don’t understand this. What does this mean? It doesn’t make sense to me.”
When working in our Record, it’s not like we open the floodgates and all the wisdom of the heavens falls on our head. Nope, It’s more like we work, on an ongoing basis, describing our problems, describing the solutions that seem to be at hand. If you need a quick fix, it’s not in the Record. That isn’t how this works.
Energy moves on the formed or identified word, and so as we describe our situations, our circumstances, or our experiences with consequences and results, they morph. As we tell the truth about our experiences and our reality, things start to change. Telling the truth is the most powerful thing we can do for ourselves — and of course, for others, but we’re talking about you right now! So telling the truth about whatever’s important to you makes all the difference in the world, and being in the Record is a safe place for you to do that.
I’ll journal when in my Record for maybe 20 minutes, and after I’m done I’ll look and say, “Well, this is so obvious. Everybody knows this.” Sometimes everything you’ve written seems like old news, or that’s how it can feel. It feels so obvious. Right? And what I do is, I close my journal, and I’ll come back to it. Maybe I’ll come back to it a week later, maybe two weeks later. Then I’ll reread what I was writing, and I’m often amazed, thinking, “This is really good. This is really helpful.” It’s when we’re very close to it, it just seems so obvious that it’s no big deal, and I’m inclined to tear up the paper and throw it away! I’ve learned that by saving my notes and looking at them later, I’m impressed and often find this practice very helpful.
We know that one reading always holds within it the seeds of the next reading. So whatever I don’t understand in the passages I have, or whatever doesn’t make sense, I write those down, and then I come back to it and ask again, “What does this mean? I don’t know why that’s important.” And I just keep writing.
There are so many ways to cultivate your amazing Akashic journey. One is by walking in nature. I love to open my Record and go for a walk. You don’t want to do this in the middle of a large city, with all the lights and horns and carrying on. That’s a lot of fun, but it’s different than walking in peaceful nature with your Record open. I take that walk with a sense of upright expanded spiritual awareness, and sometimes it can be enriching, and sometimes not at all. So just keep an open mind and see what works for you. You can try all kinds of things to find out what’s best.
One thing I like to do when attending a religious ritual or ceremony, is to enter the House of Worship and have a minute with my Record. There’s nothing to be nervous about, because in a setting like this, people are known to mumble and talk to themselves, so no one will be the wiser. You can even try this when you are participating in a religious tradition you don’t understand. Accessing your Record in these situations can be a very powerful experience. It can open us up to the deeper truths and meanings of the original intention behind the practice and the rituals. This can be quite beautiful, and sometimes it’s nothing. Again, responsible experimentation is a great thing.
If you enjoy art, go to a museum and open your Record. Sit down with the works of the great masters, and you can get a sense of what the intentions were. Now, you don’t open the Records of dead artists. They do not need readings, and there are better ways to communicate with the dead. That being said, you should open your Record and sit in a room with your favorite works. You can have a greater awareness of how you are personally connected to that individual piece or collection. This can be tremendous!
Another potentially enriching experience is to open your Record at the symphony. To experience the finest music on the planet, with your Record open, can be a beautiful thing. For some of us, it makes no difference at all.
In my first book, I talk about opening the Records of crystals and animals. You can do all of that. It’s very straightforward; you may or may not be good at it. Most of us find that we have one or two areas in which we excel, and other areas that just aren’t as productive for us.
We have the privilege to explore what supports our journey and what detracts from it. You are the one who gets to experiment and decide. I think that’s fabulous!
I’m glad you’re here, and I’m delighted that you are actively finding your place on this wonderful path!
