The Akashic Record is the transcript of infinity. It is often described as a library or database that holds an imprint of every individual life, human and otherwise, that ever has and ever will exist, and a record of every event that ever has and ever will happen, everywhere in the universe from the very beginning of time to the end of time. On a personal level, the Record contains every deed, word, thought, emotion and intention in this life and in past and future lives. It holds each person’s path and purpose.
The idea of a repository of infinity exists in most ancient cultures. The ‘Book of Life’ in the Judeo-Christian belief and the ‘Hall of Two Truths,’ of the Egyptians are two examples. Descriptions of this record evolved over time from a tablet, to a book, a library, a super-computer, an energy field, a dimensional library, and most currently, a hologram. As technology changes, so does the descriptive metaphor.
The term Akashic Record was originally created by the Theosophists at the turn of 20th century. It comes from the Hindu word akasha, which translates as ether, one of the five natural elements. The other four elements are earth, air, fire, and water. Essentially, akasha is a metaphysical substance that provides the template and matrix for physical form. Akasha is all pervasive, permeating and connecting all aspects of reality.
The akasha receives the impressions of everything it contacts and since it is all pervading and contacts everything, it contains an imprint of all that is. To create a possible scientific model, let’s assume that the akasha is electromagnetic in structure. All that exists in the physical world is an expression of electromagnetic energy: houses, people, radioactive material, all have a range of frequency they express within. Even our organs have a specific frequency which is the basis of medical tests like the electrocardiogram (EKG) that records the frequency of the heart, and the electroencephalogram (EEG) that records the frequency of brainwaves. Thoughts and emotions express in their own frequency range, as well.
Information that is expressed as vibration within an energy fields is not a new concept. Consider how fields of energy organize matter. For example, magnetic fields organize magnetized particles as every student remembers from dropping iron fillings on a paper with a magnet underneath. Another example is the way Earth’s gravitational field organizes the direction in which life forms grow.
Frequency , or the rate of vibration, is coded on carrier waves within an energy field the way a radio station codes the frequency of their programs on radio waves, or cell phones code your conversation onto microwaves. We can theorize that the imprint of events we call the Akashic Records are pieces of information stored as vibration within an electromagnetic field.
The Akashic Record is also described as a quantum hologram. Holograms have become quite common in our everyday world; we have holographic ID cards, advertisements and knick knacks in every store. They are so commonplace that we rarely think of what they really are and limit them to simply a three dimensional photograph, but the three dimensional quality is not the most important aspect of the hologram.
What is most remarkable is how information is contained in the picture. If a holographic picture of an image is cut in half and then illuminated by a laser you don’t have two halves of the picture, as you would if you tore an ordinary photograph in half: each half contains the entire image. If the halves are divided again, each piece still contains a smaller but intact version of the original image. Every part of a hologram contains all the information possessed by the whole, with one big exception - each piece contains the whole picture from its unique vantage point within the original photograph! Each piece has all the information, but from its own perspective. All pieces are needed to have all perspectives. This concept is very important to understanding our place in life.
A quantum hologram includes aspects of non-locality, wave particle duality and traveling beyond the speed of light. The holographic concept has helped advance the scientific view of nature, consciousness, the universe and even the functioning of our own brains. According to Michael Talbot in his book, The Holographic Universe, “Stanford neuro-physiologist, Dr. Karl Pribram believes memories are encoded not in neurons, or small groupings of neurons, but in patterns of nerve impulses that crisscross the entire brain in the same way that patterns of laser light interference crisscross the entire area of a piece of film containing a holographic image. In other words, Pribram believes the brain is itself a hologram.”
If the Akashic Record is a quantum hologram representing universal consciousness, then it is more than a recording device, and it is dynamic, not static. If the purpose of the Record is to promote growth, the Akashic Record is a field of consciousness with self-awareness that evolves with the experiences it records.
Each of us is a unique window into the Record imprinting our particular vantage point. Everything we see, think and do, contributes to the knowledge of the whole. As we learn and grow, the Record evolves because we are part of a totality: all life, all sentience, in all planes and levels of reality, together guide the direction of growth.
In daily life we make choices based on creating our hearts desire and avoiding pain and suffering. Our choices are personal and reflect our inner dreams. When we make choices we consider how our decision affects our family and friends, community and possibly even the nation, at least when voting. However, do we consider that we are part of the force that directs the course and quality of the whole? If we did, what might change?
The concept of an Akashic Record show us that everyone is here at the right time, in the right place, including you . No one is an accident, no matter what the story of your conception is; everyone’s life has purpose and meaning. In a hologram, each unit has access to the information in the whole and each is wired to negotiate the Akashic terrain.
Resonance provides access into the Akashic record. Energy awareness as discussed in this website is one way of finding resonance. As you expand your consciousness, you impact the quality of the Akashic Record. With your thoughts and feelings you are contributing to the creation of the mindset of the world around you. You are creating the direction of the future. What that direction that will be depends on the awareness with which all of us make our choices. How each of us behaves in the trials we face creates an energy wave that propagates through the sea of life-force. This force creates the circumstances of everyday life.
We are in a shift. Some people call this a shift into Singularity consciousness, a return to an ancient way of seeing the world. The shift happens in the blink of an eye, in the moment we move from awareness that we are connected to awareness that we are one. The moment we shift from being part of the whole to being the whole. The whole is so much more than just human consciousness. We are a tiny speck in an unfathomable mystery.
Change is seldom easy and as the old way of seeing the world clashes with the new, conflict seems to escalate. Consider this time a training ground to develop your Presence. As conflict and fear prevail, react with thoughtfulness, calmness, and love. Practice living without fear. Choose to leave your anxious, worried, and angry thoughts outside your mind. Let go of attachments and be open to compassion. Everything we are going through will be used in the creation of the new.
Be your new self, enjoy the beauty of life.
