How do I Open the Akashic Records?

How do I open the Akashic Records? This is one of the top questions I get about the Akashic Records.

To begin you need four elements. Plus there is a requirement, a challenge, and three reasons to begin with your own Akashic Records.

Very early on, the Akashic Records offered me a unique view of the Akashic Records as a flow of divine energy and knowing, moving beyond the old metaphors of book and library into a future-oriented, energy-based foundation.

This perspective greatly shifted and deepened my experience of the Akashic Records and opened me to understanding the Akashic Records from the soul’s point of view.

When I am asked “How to open the Akashic Records?” I respond from the depth of my experience and from this unique understanding of the energetics of the Akashic Records.

Summarizing my experience, the following is the response to the questions many have when they first learn about the Akashic Records:

The Necessary Elements to Open the Akashic Records

These are the four elements I rely on in opening the Akashic Records.

A set of Agreements.

A Blessing.

A Visualization.

A Process.


Because these elements help me focus and connect in a reliable, trustworthy manner which is repeatable.

Being both repeatable and trustworthy means that I can get to the deepest connections possible within the Akashic Records.

If you look around, you will find that there are many ways to open the Akashic Records.

Historically, the opening process has been labeled as only available to those who are advanced either spiritually or psychically – or both.

Spiritual awareness is helpful, but a specific level is neither a hindrance nor a requirement.

The same goes for psychic or clairvoyant powers. Neither are required and sometimes can actually get in the way of clear and open connection within the Akashic Records.

Requirement and Challenge to Access the Akashic Records

Initially I thought that there are many requirements to opening the Akashic Records. A certain spiritual attitude. Psychic abilities. Meditation, aura-seeing capabilities. Certification by an agent of authority and wisdom.

However, with years of experience I have learned there is truly only one requirement to open the Akashic Records:

The #1 Requirement: Belief

If you don’t believe in the possibility of the Akashic Records, entry won’t happen.

More importantly, if you do not believe that you can learn the opening process, then entry won’t be successful for you.

In the same vein, the primary challenge provides most of the connection trouble and most of the anxiousness and worry.

The #1 Challenge: TRUST

Every student I’ve had began with the same challenge: Trust.

Every student questions their ability to connect clearly with the Akashic Records.

This is important and bears repeating: Trust is the challenge — always.

Can you trust yourself?

Can you trust what you receive?

Can you trust the Akashic Records?

Therefore, however you learn, whatever process you embark with — find a teacher you trust. Find a teacher who can support you in trusting yourself.

Without trust, no matter the process, you will never feel comfortable, or connected, or confident.

Trust — that’s the key!

With trust, you will embrace the Agreements as solid, ethical foundation.

With trust, you will resonate with the Blessing.

With trust, you will be able to incorporate the visualization as a supported path to connection.

With trust, you will find balance between heaven and earth, and the process will connect you with the deepest expression of the Akashic Records.

What are the Next Steps for Connection?

The first challenge in how to open the Akashic Records is trust.

The next step — well, the next steps are small steps, not giant steps.

In other words, don’t feel like you gotta take on the entirety of the Akashic Records all at once.

Instead, begin with yourself first.

Learn to open your Akashic Records first.


There are several really good reasons.

Reason #1: Narrow Focus Opens Possibility.

If you know anything about the Akashic Records, you probably have been somewhat intimidated by the depth and breadth of the Akashic Records.

Learning to open your Akashic Records first offers a specific path with which to focus and connect.

It’s a bit like reading your book first before tackling the entire library.

By focusing on you, you learn the process and acclimate to the Akashic Records within what you know about you.

Reason #2: Builds Trust

Trust is crucial in learning how to open the Akashic Records.

Without trust, the journey either won’t begin or won’t have the juice to continue.

Learning to trust yourself through opening your Akashic Records is a process of empowerment which supports deepest connection with the deep road of the Akashic Records.

With trust, you open your heart and mind to the powerful process of self-discovery which is the foundation of the Akashic Records as the soul’s spiritual practice.

Reason #3: Release Your Unsharable Yuck First

When you open the Akashic Records for Other the worst thing you can do is drop your yuck in someone else’s sacred space.

Learning to open your Akashic Records first means you are taking the opportunity to identify your yuck and letting it go before it gets dumped on someone else.

Opening your Akashic Records doesn’t make you a perfected being.

Instead the process helps you identify you, helps you release what’s no longer you, and helps you make clear choices about who you truly are and can become.

Focus on you and your connection with the Akashic Records first helps you build trust and release whatever no longer serves you.

In this process, you learn to trust yourself to receive the truth of your heart and soul.

You learn to hear the song of your heart and incorporate the story of your soul.

Clarity of self creates the sacred space within which is the foundation for connecting with the Akashic Records for Other.

Now you’ve got the connection and trust necessary for moving into the depth and breadth of the Akashic Records.

The place to begin is with your own Akashic Records.

The next step is to understand what it means to open the Akashic Records for Other.

Other? What do I mean?

To understand the depth and breadth of the Akashic Records, the journey is to learn about the soul energy dynamics which describe the energy flow of the Akashic Records.
