“Let me put it this way. When you step away from viewing the Akashic Records through some type of linear perception, then you begin on a path to understanding that which comes from beyond the descriptions of book, library, or facts.”
“So, is there such a thing as nonlinear information?” she pushes.
“The short answer is yes, nonlinear information exists.” I begin. “But, it’s not a thing, either. Nonlinear information is a process of how we become aware.”
“A process? A process of what?” Doubt showing on her face.
“Think of it this way. We tend to think of information as solid, formed, something to be acquired. This perception comes out of thinking from a linear point of view.”
“Ok, I can follow that.” Naomi agrees. “But if not linear, then what?”
I take a deep breath to slow myself down a bit.
“Begin by thinking of knowing as a process of connected awareness, generated by the soul, within the body, mind, and heart of each person.”
“So, knowing begins in the soul?”
“Yep! Remember that knowing is a process of how we know, how we become aware, or gather what is knowable in this moment.”
Naomi takes her own deep breath.
“Like you said, a process”
“Yes! In other words, nonlinear information is knowing.”
Naomi stares at me and repeats, “Knowing is nonlinear information.”
I watch it sink in.
“Wow!” She pauses, breathes in again. “Ok, go on, please!”
I pause, feeling the next words beginning to build.
“Let me break this down a bit. Knowing is the process of becoming aware of what you know, because knowing speaks from the soul and the infinite and the eternal, through body, mind and heart.”
“Wait just a minute!”
Naomi begins to tick several fingers.
“No longer a book to open and read. No longer something with just past, present, and future,” she begins.
“Yes, you got it!”
“Not a something,” she continues. “Rather a process. A process which is connected to the depth of me, making itself known just like any awareness that I have.”
“Yes! That’s why trust is so important. Because anything which comes to you when you open the Akashic Records will do so through all the ways you know: sight, sound, taste, touch, smell, feeling. You need trust to discern the difference between you and the Akashic Records.”
