The Akashic Records
This image is one of many that attempts to show where we go to read our Akashic record. By now, we are very cognizant of the idea of computer files within our personal appliances, and yet when it comes to the internet Cloud, our understanding becomes a little ‘cloudy’. It’s the same with our memories: on the one hand, they exist as stored information in (and around) our brain; but, on the other hand, they are also stored in our mind, and our mind is a part of the Universal Consciousness.
Is this making any sense?
This whole line of thinking was triggered by a short conversation I overheard at last night’s football match. The grandmother of one of the players was trying to share with his father (her son) that “all those years ago, when you were playing as a young boy, who would have thought that we would be here today?” His response? “This is now. We’re making memories…”
Now, on its own, that is very true, but his answer was a kind of deflection: he didn’t want to dwell in the past; he wanted to concentrate on the present. And that is a good thing, except that the past helps to inform us about the present, and where we will go in the future. So it’s important to remember these things, even if they are uncomfortable.
My astrological and hypnotherapy work into past life memories has been going on for more than half of my adult life. As a case in point, yesterday’s post about the Doctrine of Discovery was understated, to say the least. What my research into the subject matter is triggered a distinct past life memory of hearing about this in France in the 1650’s. By then, two hundred years had passed since the first Papal Bull of 1452, authorizing explorers the right to conquer the people and lands of non-Christians. It effectively gave me the inspiration to become a ‘runner of the woods’. Since I have previously lived as a white man among the Native Canadians, I ‘knew’ what we were doing was wrong, but a fellow has to make a living, right? I got around the negative results, by justifying my actions as condoned (actually encouraged) by the Church. (If God is on our side, who can be against us?)
So that’s my story and I’m sticking with it. I cannot undo what’s been done, but I can try to make sense of it all. I hope I’m making it easier for you to understand, too. Bless.
