Once I’d spent some time with The Akashic Tarot and had gotten to know it pretty well, I decided I wanted to dive a little bit further into this idea of Akashic Records. To sum it up (in its absolute, most basic form) it’s the idea that not only have we lived multiple lives, but we can access those records and change them to help resolve our current issues. Since Sandra Anna Taylor was one of the authors of the card deck I was using, I picked up her book The Akashic Records Made Easy.
From the Back Cover:
A clear and simple guide to the incredible philosophy of the Akashic Records and the ways in which they can improve and transform our lives.
The Akashic Records are a spiritual library full of information about the world and everything in it – every person and event, past and present. Accessing the Records can help us to heal the past, get through present life challenges, release blocks and answer questions about our future.
Internationally renowned spiritual teacher Sandra Anne Taylor brings an introductory guide to this fascinating philosophy and teaches the reader:
– what the Akashic Records contain and how to access them
– how to travel the eternal timeline to investigate the past, present and potential future
– how past lives are influencing us today and what we can do to rewrite those records
– how we can use the Akashic Records to find our purpose, expand our talents and find greater success and joy in this life
– how to program future events within the records of this life and in lifetimes to come
What I Loved: I thought the idea of the Akashic Records was really interesting, and Taylor sounds like she’s done her research. She’s incorporated a lot of scientific and physics-based information into these chapters, showing that it’s a real possibility. The book includes information about the Akashic Records, how to access them, and even how to change them. Taylor also writes about real-life experiences that she and her clients have had with this process. There are multiple meditative exercises as well.
What I Didn’t Love: I really wanted to absolutely adore this book. I’ve done a few past-life guided meditations, and I found them to be amazing. It seems that it’s just not as effective in this format. There are meditations included in the book, but if you’d have to memorize the steps to really get the experience of it. I do see that there is a matching course offered by Hay House, but I’m not currently ready to shell out the money for it. I feel like there was a lot of potential here, but it just fell flat in book form. (And trust me, I absolutely HATE to say that. I always want a book to be the best way to get information!)
Rating and Review: While The Akashic Records Made Easy is informative and a decent introduction to the idea, I’ll be hard pressed to go back and read it again. There are some other guided meditations on YouTube, and perhaps after I try some of those I’ll be more inspired to dive into this with a little more depth. To be fair to the author, it can’t be easy to make other people understand such a big concept! 3.5 stars.
