The Akashic Records are the past, present, and future knowledge of all things that have ever existed. It is a universal filing system of every thought, emotion, word and action since the beginning of time, encoded on the non physical plane- the ether. They have been referred to as the Cosmic Mind, the Universal Mind and the collective subconscious.
The word Akashic is derived from the Indian Sanskrit language meaning – sky, space or ether. In Hindu mysticism the Akasha is the primary principle of nature from which the four natural elements, fire, air, earth, and water are created.It is believed the people of ancient cultures, including the Indians, Tibetans, Egyptians, Persians, Greeks, Mayans, Chinese, Druids and Hebrews regularly accessed these Records.
The Akashic Records are metaphorically described as a library and are also likened to a universal computer or the 'Mind of God'. Within this sacred space is a recording of your soul’s inception, as well as the possibilities of its future. The Akashic Records are referred to in virtually every ancient spiritual teaching.
Famous people known to have accessed the Akashic Records are Rudolf Steiner and Edgar Cayce.
