Energy, Mediumship, and Akashic Records readings can all help you to see your situations, challenges, and relationships in a different way - from the perspective of your Energy Body, from the perspective of your Loved Ones and Guides, and from the perspective of your Soul itself.
A Reading can also significantly challenge your beliefs and worldview.
I have a suggestion for those who cannot yet reconcile what these practices say about existence with what they currently believe: look at it as an example, a metaphor. Don't make it have to be true or false. Accept the information as an analogy or a play that shows certain human situations in a different place and time with different people. Shakespeare wrote, "All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players."
So if you can't quite believe in past lives yet - it's a play - just for you.
If you have a current life challenge with a co-worker, I will frequently ask your Soul Book to show us three recent past lives where you had some relationship with this person. Go.
Your Book then opens up to different pages and shows me vignettes of your interaction with this person, what the tensions were (same or different), and how or if they were resolved. This information will resonate with you in the form of enlightenment, an understanding, an "Aha!" moment. It allows you to then work through the current situation with some "background information."
Do you have to fully accept the idea of past lives to use this? Of course not. You can be open to the information and take it as a metaphor - as your Soul communicating a problem to you in a way you will understand.
You can also explore curiosities in the Akashic Records. If you are not exceptionally keen on me accessing your Soul Book, we can explore the Temple of Life, or talk to some of the Teachers who have the wisdom of the ages ready for you.
Want to know what makes your house happy or who lived there before you? There's a Book for that. Care to look at the Book for Mount Everest? Let's do it! Events, buildings, and public places all have Books in the Akashic Records.
A Reading can do anything you intend for it to do. If you engage in the process and set intentions - such as connecting with a particular loved one and finding out why you are repeating a particular pattern in your life - you will get a wealth of information that will be practical and meaningful in your life.
And now, the third post (after Energy and Mediumship) to explain how the modalities work for me - so you know what I'm doing and what to expect during a reading.
The Akashic Records are an energetic repository of information, knowledge, and wisdom. These are not different words for the same thing - but that's another post.
After I Read your Energy and connect with Loved Ones, Guides, and Angels, I can research your questions in the Akashic Records. Again, my process is simple. I say a brief, four-line prayer, and enter my Akashic Room. I join my spirit animal (a grizzly bear named Teddy) in the room, and together we go into the Communication Room (the meadow as I described in the Mediumship post). We go up the three steps, cross a bridge, and enter the Library. A Librarian takes us to a private room with table and chairs and then brings the requested Soul Book. The Books are different for each Soul. The Librarian places it on the table and then my Teacher - Bandar - comes in and assists me. Teddy stays by my side. I read, interpret, experience, and download information from the book. I rely on Bandar for his interpretation, translation, and instruction. My "research" in the Library allows me to address your questions and concerns.
Most people associate the Akashic Records with past lives, and indeed, that's one place to find them. But the Akashic Records are so much more. In the Akashic Library is your Soul Book, and everyone else's Soul Book, and books for all sentient beings. I've heard it said that the Akashic Records only houses information for Earth, but I disagree. Experience has shown me that is not the case. The Temple of Life is similar to a museum where you can go to learn and interact with any subject in the Universe.
In your Soul Book, the sections about Current Life, Past Lives, Career, and Relationships are often multi-media.
If you have relationship questions, we can look at your various relationship contracts. If life purpose is your primary reason for booking a Reading - we can look at career. There are also books for places and non-sentient beings such as plants.
As you can imagine, this research can take much more time than merely passing on messages from loved ones. It has always felt disingenuous when a practitioner says it will take more than one session to accomplish a task, but sometimes that is true for information, knowledge, and wisdom from the Akashic Records. It is what it is. However - there is another way. Learn to read your book.
You. Can. Read. Your. Soul. Book.
1. Information: a book, a teacher, a YouTube video
3. No prior skill
My recommendation is that you learn to read your Soul Book. It takes a while, but it's possible and available. You won't ever need a medium, or psychic, or tarot reading ever again. Sometimes it's fun and valuable to have an outside source confirming what you know to be true, but you won't ever feel that someone else has information that you are somehow not allowed to have. As sovereign beings, we are allowed and encouraged to enter the Records for guidance and information.
I also recommend that you learn from Teri Uktena, who is a skilled practitioner and teacher.
During the session, we can cover a lot of ground. I intend to set you on your way to self-discovery, but I'm happy to help you as well with a Reading or two.
