Symbolism is one of the standard ways in which the Akashic Records communicate with me. As a writer, I used simile, metaphor, and analogy extensively in my writing. When in school for my English degree, my professors would often comment on how I could pick out symbolism that others missed, or be able to follow an extended metaphor beyond their expectations. This skill proved to be of great value in the working world. Not.
Just as those who hope that Algebra may be helpful one day, I wished that I could put my fascination for these literary devices to good use. Amazingly, the Akashic Records is that good - no - GREAT use. I can understand very complex concepts in a short amount of time because The Records use what I know and understand. The Records "speak" to everyone this way - using your understanding to communicate with you. If you like music - you'll get music references. Movies - same thing. You don't have to learn the Records - it learns you.
When I prepare to enter the Akashic Records, I first go to My Room (in my mind, not a physical room). My Room is very girly (so not me in this life) with lots of lace and pretty things. Oh, and a Grizzly Bear named Teddy who is my Spirit Animal. I meet him here and take him with me on my journeys. For a very long time, when I was reading only my Soul Book, I had a feeling there was something to my right when I walked into the room, but I couldn't see it. I have some clairvoyance, but it is not my most active sense.
When I graduated to reading someone else's Soul Book, that first time, I walked into my room and suddenly saw that to my right was a rack with five or six white frilly dresses. For a young girl. Huh.
As I greeted Teddy, bear hug haha, I happened to look down and noticed that I was now IN one of these frilly white dresses, and I was about 12 years old. Huh again.
Being not always questioning the odd things I run in to, I continued and did the reading. At the end of the reading, it finally occurred to me to ask my Teacher why I was 12 and in the frilly dress. He smiled at me - code for "figure it out."
A-Ha! That meant that it MEANT something. I am still learning that EVERYTHING means something. I don't remember how long I thought about it, but I do remember being excited when I realized, "Oh! It's so I'm looking at someone else's Soul Book with the innocence and non-judgment of a young girl, with the added visual prompt of white for purity. Huh.
I liked it that I was changed into this getup. It made me leave myself in My Room, adopt a pure and innocent view, and not bring any of my ER Nurse, Grown-up, Mother experience with me to this person's Soul. It happened for the first five or six readings, and then I didn't need it anymore.
And so my readings have LOTS of symbolism. I will try to interpret the ones I get a "feel" for, but there are times when I'm seeing a lava lamp and that's for you to decipher. It can be annoying or fun - it's all how you look at it.
It is a privilege to open any Soul Book, and I will always do so with the utmost respect and reverence - remembering that I'm approaching it like a young girl in a white dress.
