akashic records

by Scott Morrice on 11/21/2012

For those that don’t know—akashic records are, according to Wikipedia, “…a term…used to describe a compendium of mystical knowledge supposedly encoded in a non-physical plane of existence. The akashic records are described as containing all knowledge of human experience and the history of the cosmos. They are metaphorically described as a library;…”.

And, they can be accessed—apparently.

The whole idea of the possibility of akashic records is illustrative of what I have often written about in this Blog—my deep and abiding skepticism of some of what occupies the field of mind, body, spirit.

As I have written before, and I point you to my What Is Astral Projection and Mind, Body, Spirit Issues posts for more on my feelings about this, it is my (limited) experience that some of what is written and espoused in this field takes unfair advantage of the impossibility of providing empirical evidence that would otherwise establish the truth of certain claims being made, to advance, without fear of being clearly proven wrong, the most outrageous of theories.

And certainly at first blush at least, the whole idea of the akashic records would seem to easily fall into this category of “highly suspect” claims for me.

And although it should—it doesn’t. Well it does, but I am working on it.

And all because of one person—and because I don’t have permission to reveal his name, I will refer to him as “Ross”.

I was referred to Ross by one of my health professionals in the very early stages of my journey—to assist me in answering certain questions—healing, consciousness and spirituality issues being among them.

I very quickly came to a point that I completely, totally trusted Ross’s judgment and advice with respect to just about anything he and I discussed—and quite a bit of this was very much “outside the box stuff”—all based upon my own personal experiences with him. I began to take great comfort in certain things that he was telling me about myself—because I eventually and actually began to experience the truth of what he was saying. I absolutely did find that the “proof was in the pudding”!

It’s difficult to describe exactly what I was experiencing, or Ross’s contribution, without going into details—which I don’t think is necessary for this post. But if you have been reading any of my other posts you will know that I am very cautious (cynical?) about what I see in this mind, body, spirit field, and it takes a lot to make me comfortable.

In any event, I have often discussed with Ross about the nature of his insight—how powerful and accurate it was. And he offered up that a lot of credit was due to his ability to access the akashic records!

Well, you can imagine that this bit of information really threw me for a bit of a loop—especially after he explained to me what the akashic records were all about.

So, here we have someone who has actually earned my complete trust—someone whose advice and insight I really respect—telling me that he accesses the akashic records—an idea that I probably would normally consider outlandish, even absurd! What do I do with that?

Well, first of all, neither this idea, nor any of the other very non-traditional ideas that Ross embraces, has negatively impacted the level of trust that I place in Ross—at all! In fact, he is just an amazing person!

But what it has done is underline (for me at least) the fact that many of the ideas that we might at first blush consider outlandish, deserve more from us. We need to be open-minded. Skepticism is fine—but it is not acceptable to just dismiss these theories out of hand solely because they don’t fit in with our traditional understanding of the way things are.

And I find taking my own advice on this to be very, very hard. Partly this is because of my professional training, and the way that I approach issues (life) as a result of that training, but it is also because of who I am—a bit of a skeptic by nature.

Remember, I said that this was a journey. This is all part of it!

I’ll keep you posted.
