The terms Sidereal Light, Universal Ether, Records of the Astral Light, Memory Ether, and Nature’s Memory, are among the common names used when referring to the Akashic Records. Akasha is the One Life, the primordial supersenuous living spiritual essence that pervades all space. Akasha manifests through a seven-fold differentiation that is reflected and expressed in the seven planes of life. We’ll study the Akashic Records of the mental, astral and etheric planes. The records existing in astral and etheric matter are the least perfect reflections of the highest Akashic Records, permanently recorded in eternal akashic substance.  

The Akashic Records correspond to an immense photographic film chronicling all that has ever happened, a universal repository for the spiritual images of all forms and thoughts. The Akashic Records contain the life-experiences of every human since the beginning of time, the complete histories of groups, races and nations, and also an aggregation of desire-based thought-forms created by humanity over the ages. The advanced astral Akashic Record reader is able to readily distinguish between actual Akashic Records and the living astral forms created by strong desire and imagination common to that plane.

Some individuals like to use object psychometry to establish a rapport with a desired picture from the past they wish to see. Methods of linking with the akashic records, whether mental, astral or etheric are- psychometrize an object connected with the particular prior event, using scrying as a link to obtain an image of a historical scene, demonstrating human psychometry to determine a person’s previous experiences or even that individual’s past life-times, also the form of clairvoyance called clairvoyance of the past, to access Akashic Records.

Book pagesPurification of one’s physical, astral and mental bodies is essential to interpreting Akashic Records, with strict cleanliness traditionally being required. When beginning akashic record viewing, its common to receive only a single motionless picture of the records being sought. It’s easy to misinterpret an Akashic Record fragment, due to both its being an incomplete record, and the possibility of one’s partially developed clairvoyance coloring the interpretation. Pictures from the etheric Akashic Records are more vague and blurred than those from higher levels.

The astral Akashic  Records contain the desires and emotional history of the past. Viewing astral records, unlike mental records, involves language difficulties for the viewer. Astral records can appear as a disconnected, and fragmentary series of pictures seen in non-coherent order. On the mental plane, the records are more complete and exact, and can be seen accurately and clearly. With mental plane pictures, the observer not only sees, hears and understands what is said, but also knows the subject’s thoughts and motives.

Viewing the Akashic Records resembles having a picture-record of past events being unrolled before one’s inner eye, with layers of newer records seemingly on top of older ones. On the mental plane, the pictures have the appearance of an endless unified succession of living photographs. The pictures don’t melt into each other, but the action of the reflected figures constantly goes on, like watching actors on a stage. On the Causal plane, the past, present and future can be seen at once.

With development, it is possible to speed up and slow down the rate of pictures, as well as magnify them and hold a specific picture for as long as desired.
