How I discovered my Akashic records

Taking the path of the knight, photo by Cynthia Luna So it might be worth taking a minute to share with you when, where and how I found out about the Akashic Records.

The Tale of How I Discovered my Akashic Records

I was going through a little rough patch with my loved one. He and I were having a hard time communicating and we were quickly moving in opposite directions. Even when we tried we couldn’t seem to say what we meant or mean what we said.

I went online just looking for some distraction, and stumbled on freerspirit.com. She had a blog post up about debunking the myths on Twin Flames and Soul Mates. I really can’t say I understood it (and I’m not sure I understand it completely even now), but I can say that a peace washed over me, and this word, “Akashic” just started ringing in my ears. It seemed so familiar, even though I had no idea what it was. I then read her webpages “My Akashic Journey” and then “Your Akashic Journey” and decided to get a reading. (Go ahead and visit her blog to learn more. I found her story thrilling.)

I submitted my questions to her that night.

The following day, I received a response from “Jen” that she would be happy to conduct a reading, and would send it to me in “a couple of days”.

By Day Two, I had already googled the hell out of “Akashic Records” and had purchased the Linda Howe’s “Discover Your Soul’s Path through the Akashic Records” on Amazon.

Later that day, I heard from Jen that she was feeling unwell and had some internet issues. All to say, that it ultimately took a week until I received her reading.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch…

During that week, I pretty much tore through Linda Howe’s book and decided to do a reading on my own. (Yeah, I can be a bit impulsive.) This was right near the end of February 2015. You can read an excerpt of that reading here.

In near synchronicity, I finally received a reading from FreerSpirit, and even though her reading was different from mine (I posed different questions to my Records for the readings) they were still aligned with each other. I just intuitively knew that this was a path that I needed to begin taking.

 

My process: dialoguing with my imaginary friend

On the quest, photo by Cynthia LunaI’ll come out and say it straight: my experience with the Akashic Records is mostly emotional and intuitive. I just know them to be there and feel them to be true.

But maybe you want to know “how it goes down”. Well, I basically still my mind. I usually sit in a chair near a window where I can hear weather. (It helps me feel connected with the Earth, or grounded.) Then, I focus on my breathing and relax. When I feel quieted and good, I reach for Howe’s Pathway Prayer, which you can find here or in her books.

I rest my hands gently on my computer keyboard, which is already set up on a blank word document and when I start to feel a shift in my energy (that’s tough to explain — sometimes, it feels a little like your muscles relax even more) I’ll say hello. And that’s how I think I would start a dialogue with an “imaginary friend”.

Actually, I don’t talk out loud — I pretty much engage in the conversation in my head and type everything: what I say, and what my guide(s) say(s). These conversations feel like they are about 15 minutes long, but the past few times they have taken a little more than an hour. I like to give myself a two- or three-hour window, so I don’t feel rushed. After saying Howe’s Closing Prayer, which you can find here, I’ll sit quietly and wind down the buzz. I’ll get up out of my chair, walk to the kitchen and have a glass of water, stand near a window and look out at traffic or people walking. Just “return to earth”, nice and slow.

Not getting through? Here’s a little tip…

As you know, I have surfed around the internet and read a lot about this. In a lot of comments sections, I have seen people saying they have tried to access their own records and were met with silence. Nothing. My advice is: Just be completely, 100% okay with this — and don’t let the silence discourage you. Just relax, ride out the silence by focusing on your breathing and directing your thought on a body part that you would never ordinarily think about and see if you can raise your feel-good about it. When you’re done, just say the Closing Prayer and go on with your day.

My feeling is that everyone’s experience reading their records is subtly different. Some people will channel a voice with their vocal chords and others will tap into the voice in their heads. :-) I have read that some people see images, others started by “seeing” silent movies, which later came with full-on “visions” with dialogue, etc. In my case, it’s quite undramatic: it’s a voice in my head accompanied by a vibration/emotion that feels good, manly, powerful, childlike — whatever it is that I am supposed to be understanding. Sometimes, it feels like a group of energies are dialoguing with me, other times it’s a singular vibration.

I also have a hunch that sometimes you might be in such turmoil about the situation that led you to your Akashic Records that you either can’t state your question clearly (that happened to me not too long ago) or you just can’t “hear” the message over the din of your own distress.

Again, be 100% okay with this. (And also consider asking someone who conducts Akashic readings to look into your Akashic Records about this very issue. “Why is it that every time I sit down to read my Akashic Records, I get silence?”)

You also might find later in the day after your (attempted) reading, while you’re washing the dishes or deciding which apple to pick out in the produce section, that the very message you needed to hear will present itself to you clear as a bell.

My guess is not every reading goes down exactly the same way either.


Can any one of us help another with a weaker vibration?

Dear Readers,

In my first reading by Jen a little over a month ago, she informed me of two “Loved Ones” spirit guides, named Stuart and Jakob, who have been assigned to guide me since my move to Switzerland. Jen wrote, “They are familiar with the country and her people.” And she elaborated that I should call on them for assistance acclimating to the new experience.

So, I did.

As usual, my parts are in bold text.

Here’s wishing you light and joy,

Cynthia


Is there something I need to change about myself, as I consider taking my Akashic journey?

Cynthia. First of all, thank you for contacting us. Yes, there are those of us who have experienced lifetimes working alongside the conditions that govern the vibration of the society in which you now live. One thing that is worth telling you is that you do not struggle as much with the issues, conditions that hinder progress for Switzerland. Your sense of the conditions that define living, are not bounded by the same set of values that tend to bind people in this culture. It is one area where we think you perform your role in Switzerland exceedingly well, in pursuing your calling. You are comfortable to be you and you are blind to the conditions that make others feel rather restricted in their time and space reality in your dimension.

I can hear what you are saying. Is where I am working now, really the best place for me to continue to raise and spread my vibrational advantage?

Don’…

Let us begin again. Don’t think of it as an end station. It’s more like a dress rehearsal. You will not be at [that company] much longer. You will find employment quite soon. Something where you will be challenged to maintain a high vibrational energy and where you will be increasing or widening perspective.

I am thinking that being with my current employer has weakened my vibrational sticking power. Can any one of us help another with a weakened vibration?

Mosaic Mural in Epinal, France, photo by Cynthia LunaYes and no. Yes, in that you ensuring that your vibration is “up there” is really all you can do. It requires discipline and a desire. No, because that is really the calling of the individual. Some people note the positive vibration of another and “glom” on that. But you already know that…

Swiss people or the people categorized… characterized by that trait you recognize as Swiss, have learned to wall themselves off from vibrations in general. It was what your husband is sensing and for him there is a struggle for him to relate to others who “block themselves off”.

Yes, We are hearing you trying to point out a “lesson” for him here, but that is really not for you to concern yourself with. In actuality, his commitment is to healing. As for the lesson he is to derive from his experience and how/whether that gets in the way of his purpose is up to him to discern. Do you understand what we are trying to say?

Your lesson is to let go. Your husband knows you love him. Your husband knows you will protect him. And he knows you are his friend. Do you know those things? Do you love you? Do you know you are prepared to protect yourself? Do you know you are your friend? Focus on your vibration and remain true to that. If anything, your husband is getting you battle-ready. He is goading you to take the next step.

What is that [the next step]?

It is not quite time yet. But it is coming soon.

[I am sensing their presence fading away, as my questions for them seem to fade away as well. My typing s also a bit more chaotic and unsure.]


Beautiful surprises… Venus shines!

This is a beautiful time of year in Switzerland. We have been particularly lucky this year, because the weather has really brought about some welcome sunshine! Because of this, I have also been able to enjoy many walks with my loved one, during which we sometimes walk in silence and other times in animated conversation about Energy, Law of Attraction and Collective Consciousness.

A couple days ago, I did a quick little Akashic Record exercise. I do this just to keep the lines of communication open, or my muscles stretched and flexible. I also do it to massage my time calendar which has a magnetic ability to fill up with all sorts of busy-ness.

I didn’t have much time, but I figured 15 to 30 minutes is better than nothing, and stepped right into conversation — despite not having any specific questions, and contrary to what I promised myself I wouldn’t do for future readings. It seemed that I may have been beckoned to do the reading, because the “vibration” of a presence was almost immediate.

The communication was brief, “urgent” and clear, but still patient and loving. (I won’t get into the details of the conversation now, because I haven’t yet fully processed all the information in my mind as yet, but I will share this.) It ended with them saying: “We have really enjoyed coming to you today. As a token, we will leave you with a surprise. You will know it’s us, when you see it.”

Of course, that day, I was looking for “signs” and there were many noteworthy signs of beauty and coincidence, and I would ask myself, “Could that be it?” to which I’d have to remind myself that they clearly said I would know it’s them when I see it.

Blimey! It took three days, but when I did see it, I did know. Here goes…

IMG_0995

It’s the star directly atop the restaurant across the street. I have noticed this for several months now (on clear, cloudless nights). I’m not sure how long it’s been there, but it seems to change position in the night sky a little from one night to another. At first, I thought it could be Venus, but it always seemed a bit too bright — I had never seen Venus so bright before. (But I’m also not really a star-gazer in that sense, so I wasn’t even sure if I was misnaming that star.) Another time when I saw it a bit more than a month ago, it seemed almost like two lights so close to each other they could be one.

Well, about a week ago, I asked a connection who’s connected (or simply bright) what she thought. She managed to line up what I was seeing with Google Sky and see that it was Venus, lined up right in front of Alcyone (of the Pleiadian star system!). And to echo her words: “How cool is that?” indeed!!

I shot the picture just last night from my little balcony in Switzerland, and it is completely untouched.

Like I said, when I saw it, I just knew this was the “surprise” referred to three days ago in my reading. Noting that we are on the cusp of the astrological sign Taurus, it seems fitting to give Venus her props along with her lover, Mars. It also feels right to remember the call for recognizing small things of beauty this month for great rewards.

Have you seen the super bright Venus star I’m referring to in this picture? Leave a comment, I would love to hear from you!


See how many moments of Free you can find

Hello Readers,

Continuing on this journey of reading my Akashic Records, I thought I might share with you an excerpt of one of my first readings. It seems that when I read, it is much like conducting an interview, where I’m actually interacting directly with “another” vibration. The vibration transmits messages to me mostly in words, but sometimes it’s through sensations and images, which I do my best to describe after the reading is complete. Parts in bold are “my own” voice and those in bold italics are my description of images I received.

As usual, your comments and thoughts are appreciated and welcome.

Wishing you light, joy and abundance,

Cynthia


I am trying to better understand how or whether I can go about living to my fullest potential in my current working situation.

We are pleased to have you reach out to us. And to make efforts at furthering our contact.

You wish to address the patterns of your life at the moment. We understand this. Your life right now is patterned with chaos. This is the way it is meant to be, dear Cynthia. You have wished for this — the full schedule, the numerous requests upon your time. And, yet, you are also finding that somehow, this no longer serves you. Correct?

Yes. Yes! What do I do about streamlining my life, so that I can serve others, find personal fulfilment, and still have time, and a breath of fresh air to enjoy the things I love? I feel frustrated with my work — my job — for taking precious time away from me every week, but I am grateful for the regular paycheque, so I don’t need to worry about how the rent will be paid, etc.

We know you worry. We know that worry is what also so effectively manifested these things for you. Remember when you lived in California, and you wished for more time, so you could find clients? You wished for clients who would desire what you offered? At the same time, you struggled with your contract with [Company X], because you felt they “demanded” so much time from you — when actually you know you demanded that time of yourself and gave it away.

Yes, I remember. I know… What do I do about this? How can I correct this pattern?

Don’t worry. You are being taking care of.

I feel funny asking this. What do I do to release the worry? 

Just let go.

[long pause]

We can see you are struggling with doubt about that one.

Yes. Finances surfaced for me when we started to work on my worries. That one has a strong gravitational pull. Can we explore a time when I had a particular issue with money that I have managed to create this gravitational pull for myself? Can we go there and cut those memories, or release those bonds, or whatever?

:-) [Author’s note: Sometimes, the answer actually includes the typing of a “colon” and an “end parentheses”.]

Young boy, aged 11. Playing football. War. [My impression is that I am in England, thought I can’t say for sure.]

It was the last thing on your mind at that time. Your parents were killed suddenly, that your life was transformed in an instant. In short order, you were sent on a train to a textile factory.

My job was to sweep the fluff and put them back in bins. Not a trace of fluff was to be wasted. Everything was to be put back in the bins, all the cotton could be woven into the fabric of war. I lived with a couple, who also worked at the cotton mill. I was lucky. I paid them rent and received a mattress in a small sleeping quarter, and food to eat. As long as I paid my rent, I had a place to stay. I missed my parents. I never grieved their passing. I had to find work quickly. My heart wept almost daily, especially those nights. Every night before falling asleep. The thing that I had taken for granted was now no longer there. My mother’s love. I could see now why my father was so stern. He was probably as tired as I was now after a day of collecting cotton. 

One day in the cotton mill, I lost my left hand. [It was bandaged and within a short period — I’m not sure how long, the vision glossed over that — I was back to work without a hand.] I tried to keep up with the other little ones who collected cotton, but I wasn’t as swift moving through the looms to get cotton fluff. The pain from my injury was also growing increasingly unbearable. [It may have been infected.] Paying my rent became harder and harder to do. I died before reaching the age of 14. 

Okay. So I see how I honoured and valued money in that life. It afforded me a place of my own. I also see that I forged an emotional connection with money and work. How do I release those bonds, those connections? Do those sentiments no longer serve me? 

We don’t know… Do they?

I feel like you’re trying to tell me I know the answer to my question. 

Yes. You already do.

How do I allow money to enter into my life freely? Without condition? How do I release my stronghold on the factory worker conundrum?

In this moment, do you now see that you are free?

See the moments when you are free and celebrate them. Right now, those days are Saturday and Sunday. Are you not free on Monday evening when you sing in the choir?

When you are free, and you find yourself in a  moment of freeness, be completely free for that entire moment. Do not think about that moment later, when you need to [do this or that] … or another moment in the future, when you might have to [do this or that]… [writer’s note: I am feeling my body sway back and forth, torn between the illusion of needing to be in two places at the same time.] Immerse yourself, bathe yourself fully in the free moments when you find them. Perhaps it is just a minute before the bus arrives. Perhaps it is in the ladies’ room as you powder your nose. Relish that minute for all its sixty-seconds’ worth. Do not even think of the 61st second before it appears.

See how many moments of Free you can find in the morning on your way to work.

Find your moments of Free during work. The one where you can step way — and do so completely. One minute here, another minute there.

Okay, I get it. 

You are working your job at [Company Z] because it serves you now. Once you have released your attachment to the job, there will be the space for that which you love. Just remember, it is already there.

You just aren’t celebrating those moments fully.


Lee Harris: “More peace in having no drive at your work”

Storchbruecke, photo by Cynthia LunaAs you may have already read, I asked my guides at the end of last month if they may want to share a forecast for April 2015 with you. They were more than willing, and it was exciting for me to be a part of this process of seeing into the insights that they shared.

Truth be told, I have to visit my blog just about every day, because I can’t remember what was said — and I also find that every time I read it something different stands out. Last week, I made it a point to remember to wear a necklace with a small, flower-shaped pendant that I have from many years ago. (This is a big deal for me, because I practically never, ever wear jewelry.)

It was this small “thing” that, surprisingly to me, made me pause to recognize the strength that comes in the stillness of beauty daily.

Now, mind you, the only time I looked at it was when I removed it from my jewelry box to put it on in the morning. But it was as if this moment’s acknowledgement had a ripple effect throughout my day.

At the office, I started noticing other beautiful things and moments, like a coworker’s new belt buckle (I made his day commenting on it, because it was new, and he wasn’t sure if it was worth the money) or the clarity of another coworker’s whistle (we ended up showing each other a couple of salsa moves). Another coworker pointed at the tiny flower at my throat and said, “what a pretty necklace, is it new?” :-)

Even the Universe wanted to get in on the action and delivered a couple of rapturously beautiful sunrises — with amazing, billowy red clouds against the dark silhouette of a nearby hill. The Universe also delivered with an amazing choreography of afternoon weather, with a downpour right before my having to leave the office, right after my stepping into the bus and with unrelenting fervor for the entire time I was in the train until I had to step out of the train to walk home. Despite a rainy, April-shower week, I did not open my umbrella once!

This point segues into another lovely forecast presented by Lee Harris Energy for April 2015, which resonated with me. I think you’ll enjoy it too.

In one part of the video, he mentions our Western, “driven society” and how this April “there will be more peace in you around having no drive.”

Boy, did that resonate with me! Just a couple days ago, I finally told my husband that I won’t be applying for jobs anymore (at least not for a little while anyway). And the reason for this was not anchored in resignation, it actually came from  acceptance for where I am Right Now — because, as unchallenging as my day-to-day job may be, I do experience joy there, and connectedness, especially when I home into the silent, strong, beautiful center…!!

This point merges into Harris’s earlier point, which is that when you find your Purpose in your Self, then your Purpose in your work will also emerge. (Or, you and the Universe will “co-conspire” to deliver the work that aligns with that vibration.)

How liberating!

 


Getting to know you…

Hello Readers, 

This excerpt is from my very first Akashic Reading. I had the urge to ask for a more informal introduction from the guides providing the vibration. I do wish I had asked a bit more about these guides…

As usual, my voice is in bold text. Your comments are appreciated.

Best wishes,

Cynthia


"Ezekiel by Michelangelo, restored - large" by Michelangelo Buonarroti - http://www.zeno.org/Kunstwerke.images/I/77j309a.jpg. Licensed under Public Domain via Wikimedia Commons.Can I ask the name of the energy that is helping me with these questions?

We are a few of your Teachers. Your loved ones are here too, in silence.

What are your names?

David, Ezekiel and Oliver.

What about Stuart and Jakob? 

Now, they are here to help you with Switzerland-related concerns. But they are here, too.

What does that mean, Switzerland-related issues, exactly?

You have a history in Switzerland, too. An energetic one. But because your life has transpired mostly in the United States, a lot of what you know is vibrationally connected to the collective vibration of that land.

They [Stuart and Jakob] are your guides to help you tune into the [radio] station that serves you and your desires. They are there as you tap into your desires and manifest what you wish for. They are enablers–the music that comes through, as you rejigger your vibration to your station of preference.

So, are they responsible for my being so good at manifesting things [lately]? 

Yes, and no. Only you are responsible for manifesting things and your desires. In working with you, they have observed however that you , being new to this culture, come with a open vibration, or with a less-resistant vibration, because you have no conditioned resistance to what is possible or not in this new land. You are also aware that manifesting something as big, compression* and valuable as the refrigerator was easy, but for a Swiss who grew up in Switzerland, it would have been impossible.

Okay. I think I’m beginning to understand the roles of Stuart and Jakob a little bit better… I would like to be able to call on the right one of you when I have a question…

[Laughter – mirthful feelings] You can do that if you wish, but you don’t have to. Energetically, we respond to the question that tugs on your chords. [An image of a guitar appeared in my thinking.] Yes, just like a guitar. If your question vibrates to produce tones on a chord, the strings vibrate and generate a sound that is the answer — or the sound of the guitar.

*The writer is pretty sure the guides didn’t say “compression” here, but that’s what my fingers ended up typing up, and I can’t recall for the life of me what they could have said instead.
