Akashic Record Meaning Simplified

 Akashic Record Meaning




Wish me luck on simplifying the concept of Akashic record meaning.  This concept is not the easiest nut to crack. Let’s start with the meaning of the word.   The term Akashic is Sanskrit for aether (aka: ether).  Ether, in the spiritual sense, is the essence that dwells beyond our physical reality.  Some schools of thought believe ether (Akasha) is a place located in the higher-most regions above the clouds in the sky.  Interestingly, the term Akash is the Hindi word for ‘sky’.

Akashic record meaning is an obscure thing. It is submerged in a sea of opinions from religious scholars, renowned psychics, theosophists and a few crack-pots who have no idea what they’re talking about.

According to The Dictionary of the Esoteric by Nevill Drury, the definition of the Akashic Records is:

“Theosophical concept for an astral memory of all events, thoughts, and emotions that have arisen since the world began.”

That is a swanky way of saying the records are a celestial storage facility for all memory, experiences and potential of every living being for all time.

Will you allow me to go on a tangent here?

Once upon a time I used to manage a storage facility.  300+ units holding people’s stuff.  That storage facility was kinda like the Akashic records.  How so?

Each unit held people’s treasures, their memories, their history.  Some units held people’s future too. For example, a friend of mine kept a unit to protect a classic car he was working on; he planned on burning the road with it one day when he completed repairing it.

So imagine an infinite number of storage units holding all memories, all experiences and all futures for all living beings.  That’s Akashic record meaning in a nutshell.

Regrettably, it’s not that simple when it comes to these weighty concepts…it never is.

Rather than storage units, most scholars agree the Akashic records are tomes…big books, if you will.  They are stored in a library that is incomprehensibly massive.  This library puts the Library of Congress to shame – it is endless, immeasurable.

Each book within this limitless library is a historical document of every being.  Each edition is a detailed account of every human’s past, present and future.  Each volume documents memory, emotion and experience.

Moreover, these books also contain pure potentials…actions not yet taken, experiences not yet felt.  These potentials shimmer in expectation, because the only thing that sets a potential in indelible writing in your Akashic record is choice.  Once you make a choice, the potential then becomes a permanent entry in your record.

So where is the library of Akashic records located?  In another dimension of course (I told you this stuff is never simple).

This is Madame Blavatsky’s take on Akashic record meaning and its location:

“…Located at the next level called the Fifth Round that is the fifth Element, Ether, which is the gross body of Akasha. As air is familiar to us now [Akasha] is the agent of all things. It is only in this Fifth Round detected with those of higher sense that growth and development of Akasha serves complete expansion.”

That’s pretty heavy.  Let me lighten the load.  Akashic record meaning in Blavatsky’s terms implies Akasha is synonymous with Ether. As such, Akasha is everywhere, pervasive, omnipresent…’like air.’

The  Akashic record meaning gets a little more muddled when we consult Edgar Cayce’s opinion on their location.  According to  Awakening Your Psychic Powers: Open Your Inner Mind And Control Your Psychic Intuition Today (Edgar Cayce Guides), the location of Akasha is in within the human soul.  To quote the book:

“He [Cayce] referred to the…Akashic Records as that domain where all memories are stored. He indicated that the soul contains a record of all its experiences, that the soul is built from those experiences. And yet, at the same time, all memories are ‘as One.’  The universal awareness is the consciousness of all those soul memories.”

This implies that the soul and spirit are connected to the animating force of life. Call it God, call it the Universe, call it Divine Spirit…it is the unifying power that is both the glue and lubricant for all existence.

Are the records real?  That’s conjecture.  Meaning, there is tons of information on the existence of Akasha, but there is no hard evidence it exists for real.  Many theosophists and psychics are absolutely convinced of its existence.  Furthermore, experts claim the Akasha can be accessed.  Yep, like checking out a book from the library – but on a grandly divine, universal scale.

Is there a way to access Akashic records?  Yes and no.  If you doubt the existence of the records, then there’s no point trying to check out your book from the Akashic library.  If, however, you believe in such a phenomenal data-bank of all human existence, then you can absolutely obtain your library card and enter the grand halls of Akasha.

Can we view other people’s records?  Some scholars believe so.  Edgar Cayce healed hundreds of people by accessing their records in the Akasha.  Some psychics claim to do the same.  In truth, I’d rather not elucidate on this question.  Each record is extremely private, and to access someone else’s Akashic record without express permission, is a spiritual abomination….one that is unforgivable both in the physical and the non-physical realms.

Avia’s Experience with Akashic Record Meaning

In my experience, I gained access after six months of research into the Akasha record meaning combined with an equal amount of intense meditation.  Yep. Daily, for six months I endeavored to reach the ‘Hall of Remembrances’ (as Cayce puts it).

Did I make it?  Yes.  Conclusion?  Magnificent insight.  Did this experience change my life?  No.  The knowledge guided me – but I’m still human.  I’m still going to make crappy choices, no matter how illuminating my Akashic experiences were.

Did I learn my future from tapping into my Akashic records?  Yeah, sort of.  As mentioned, the book resonates with pure potential.  There are some future possibilities written in my book. But it seemed to me, my future is written in pencil….the writing was faint…whereas my past was in permanent ink.  This tells me my future is not set in stone.  It tells me that my choices are key to erasing the future written in pencil, and creating a better future written in pen.

Your experience with the Akasha may be completely different than mine.  As with all things spiritual and ethereal…this stuff is linked to the soul.  Every soul is unique, so therefore you’re spiritual journey will offer you different insights than mine.

In the end, the choice to believe is yours.  Don’t take my views as the ultimate answer. I strongly encourage you to do your own research, and make your own decisions.

Can You Tell Me What This Means?

Symbolism of Psychic Ability

The Meaning of the Psyche

Friends, Foes, Family, Toads

I’ve got a friend. I call her ‘Mayura’.  It is the Sanskrit name for peacock.  If she reads this post, she’ll know exactly what I mean.

Anyway, I’ve known Mayura for a long time…over twenty years.  I’ve had the honor of seeing her grow up.  She grew up in a thoroughly challenging environment.

Mayura reminds me of a lotus flower.  Did you know that for all its loveliness, the lotus flower is born in some pretty stinky conditions?  Yep. In fact, the more putrid its environment, often the lotus blossom becomes ever more pure, powerful and gorgeous.  It is a supreme, symbolic example of beauty finding a place in the midst of pretty crappy places.  This also, makes the lotus a sacred flower in ancient Asian cultures.  There is a remarkable quality to anything that can flourish and offer elegance in a chaotic, sometimes icky world.

At any rate…Mayura and I have somehow kept in touch over time.  We’ve been ‘radio silent’ for years, only to pick right back up as if time has never passed.  This, my friends, is a luxury I hope you all can experience at least once in your lives.

Mayura and I have been talking about human relationships lately.  I adore how she views things.  She has an expanded, helicopter view of interpersonal dynamics.  I dunno how she does it.  Maybe she was born with this laser-like view into the human soul.  She knows herself and she knows others…it is almost as if she holds people up into the light and she can see through them…like she is seeing through the transparency of a person…like she can see the other page behind the cover of the book that is the human.

I wish I had been (and could be presently) as savvy as Mayura.  She is 20 some-odd years my junior, but this woman has insight and wisdom coming out her ears, and beyond her years.

So what’s my point to all this?  You know I always want to give you something…some kind of take-away point.

Well, as I said…Mayura and I have been talking about the ups and downs of dealing with people.  Doesn’t matter if friend, foe or family…dealing with people can be a dicey prospect.  Actually, dealing with those closest to us can be more challenging than dealing with strangers off the street.

We shared a little about our experiences with feelings of guilt, betrayal, love, loyalty…you know…all that stuff all people should coffee-klatch about sometime in our lives.  One of the things I love about Mayura is she makes me think.  She makes me go deep and internalize some really heavy stuff that sometimes I’d rather not visit.

Nevertheless…while discussing a particular touching moment in our lives, I shared an infinitesimal bit of fluff with her.  It wasn’t my most shining moment of advice-giving.  It was not a wise, sage-filled statement I made.  In fact, I’m pretty sure my words to her were, in some ways, hauntingly hopeless.

But were they?

Somehow, we got to talking about the idea of people changing.  We all want to give people the benefit of the doubt.  We especially always want to keep loving and believing in our friends and family.  Even our foes…our ‘frienemies’ – at some point we had a connection with these people…they didn’t become our enemies for no reason.  Nope.  Often, an enemy was once a friend.

So what do we do with the people in our lives who we so desperately want to love, to trust, to believe in….yet they somehow always seem to disappoint us?

This is what I said to Mayura  in response:

“I think people can modify.  We can rise above, improve,  adjust….but at our core…I think that nugget of true ‘self’ is nestled within us like a little toad.

The only true hope we have of true transformation is if we love our inner toadie, and let it snuggle in tight within us, and love it warts and all. Contrarily, there are those of us who ignore the roosting toad….which causes that soggy thing to rot and become poisonous.

We are who we are.  Our only chance is to embrace or reject it.  And….I hope you understand what I’m saying…because if I have nothing in this life to give…my little observation about inner toadies is about all the wisdom I have.”

Lame?  Yeah, maybe.  But relevant?  Yeah, I think so.

What is your inner toad doing within you?  What is the inner toad doing within your friends, family or foes?  Is it twitching, torturing? Chilling out?  Consider it.  -Makes a big difference within ourselves and with those whom we interact.

Just thinking.

May all your interactions be filled with revelation.

Brightest,

Avia
