The Akashic Records, also known as "The Book of Life," are the storehouse of all information for every individual who has ever lived on earth. They exist beyond our human construction of time and space, and they allow us to connect to higher guidance and to the universal wisdom of Source energy. In addition to containing the record of all past events, the Akashic Records also exist and function in the present and future.
In other words, they can guide us to make more conscious choices going forward based on the information of our past.
"In the process of accessing the Akashic Records, we transition from a state of ordinary human consciousness to a state of Divine universal consciousness in which we recognize our Oneness with the Divine at all levels."
~ Linda Howe
