Prepare For Your Akashic Record Reading

I am really looking forward to working with you!

Everything on this page is to help you prepare for your Akashic Record Reading.

If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to reach out to me or bring up at the beginning of your session.

Here’s what you need to know before your Reading:

Preparing for your Akashic Record Reading with Cheryl Marlene

1. Your Akashic Record Reading is based on the questions you ask.

Your questions can be specific or general and on almost any topic including career, health, relationships, or finances.

The only real limit is a topic that would come from someone else’s Records.

For example, you may ask about the purpose of your relationship with a particular friend, but not about that friend’s individual life purpose.

2. Before your Akashic Record Reading, here’s what I want you to know about questions:

There are no wrong/stupid/silly questions.

If it’s arising within you to ask, ASK.

Don’t judge, editorialize, or deny.

Your question is your question.

Judgment is easy and frequent, thus there is no need to add to your stress of asking the “perfect” or the “right” question.

Again, there are no wrong/idiotic/ridiculous questions.

There is only the question in this moment you want to ask — ASK!

3. Essentially, most questions boil down to these two essential questions:

Both of these questions get you to the heart of your current challenge, bring clarity and understanding, and provide clear steps to move your life forward.

  1. What is my truth about XYZ?

This question wants to get to the heart of what isn’t seen or understood. XYZ can be anything in life which is troublesome or problematic. The challenge in the relationship, the downturn of the business, a lack of interest in life, feeling exhausted by the craziness – anything or anyone in life.

This question can take many forms like: What is beneficial for me to understand (about XYZ)? or What is for me to know (about XYZ)?

Framing this type of open-ended question within the concept of truth can help sidestep any inner resistance to clarity.

  1. What no longer serves me and I’m ready to release about XYZ?

Life would be a lot easier if what is true today will will be guaranteed to be true five years from now.

However, shift and change are the only guarantees.

Thus what worked two years ago may not work today.

This question gets to the heart of this motion by looking directly at what no longer is truthful or in alignment with you.

There are other forms of this questions including: What can I let go? or “What holds me back that I can release now?

By adopting this question you are giving yourself the opportunity to release the unneeded and move forward.

To help with questions, check out my Question Suggestions page or my book, 400+ Questions to Ask the Akashic Records.

4. Your Akashic Record is the record of your soul’s journey through the universe and can only be opened with your permission.

When your Akashic Record is opened in a Reading, the response from the Records is based on helping you find your highest and deepest expression in the moment.

The response can be very specific or more general in nature.

Depending on your situation, you may also receive instructions for releasing energetic blocks and healing trauma to regain balance and wholeness within your life.

The Reading itself is grounded in safe, sacred energy.

Many experience a profound sense of transformation, integration, and balance.

A Reading is a gentle process aimed at helping you find release, transformation, and balance.

Plus I am very experienced in helping you deal with any related fear, anxiety, or nervousness.

Before Your Session

More Information to help your prepare for your Akashic Record Reading

Client Information Page — a MUST READ!

Please read my Client Information Page which describe all my Terms of Service.

Included is information about how I offer Readings plus policies on cancellation, rescheduling, late starts and more.

I will assume that by working with me one-on-one that you have read and agreed to this information.

Make a list of questions to ask in your Reading.

I cover this above and will repeat it here because your Reading is based on the questions you ask and the issues you bring up.

Find your questions by thinking about what is going on in your life:

  • What would you like to explore, clarify, or understand?
  • Where do you need closure?
  • Where do you feel fatigue, anger, fear, or pain?
  • What do you want to let go of?
  • What doesn’t make sense?

Questions can be worded very specifically or generally. “I have a problem with xyz and want to know more” is enough of a question.

Perhaps these Questions Suggestions may be of assistance.

If you are confused because there seems so much, don’t worry. We can sort through the confusion in the reading.

Know that the effects of the Reading begin when you begin to schedule and confirm your appointment.

For example, some clients report that their initial questions were answered before the Reading and new questions appeared for the Reading itself.

The process is unique to each individual. It’s not unusual to feel either tense, nervous, excited, or all three!

Change of Schedule?

If you need to re-schedule or cancel your appointment, please do so within 48 hours of your scheduled time by either following the link in your confirmation email or by sending me email.

There are no refunds for appointments rescheduled or cnancelled with less than 48 hours notice, missed appointments, or late-starts.

Please see my Client Information Page for detailed information about rescheduling, cancellations, late starts, or missed appointments.

In your confirmation email, there is a link to use to connect with me during your Reading.

Click on the link on either your phone, tablet or computer.

If you haven’t used Zoom before, a little program will asked to be installed on your computer — please accept this request.

Once installed, Zoom will do what is necessary for us to connect.

You may also phone in as described in the email.

If you do not appear within 10 minutes of your scheduled time, the appointment is considered missed as a no-show.

There are no refunds for no-shows or missed appointments as stated on my Client Information Page.


Choose a quiet, comfortable location where you feel at ease and where you can be on Zoom (via phone, tablet, or computer) without interruptions or distractions at any time during your Reading.

Charge Up!

To connect to Zoom, you may use your phone, tablet or computer.  Make sure that whatever device you use is charged enough to last the entirety of the Reading — at least 3 hours of charge is advised.


If you have made a list of questions, bring those!

Have a glass of water close by.

Bring a pen and pad of paper in case you want to take notes.

Remember I will record your Reading and send the recording to you via after your Reading.

If something I say doesn’t make sense, please ask for clarification.

Relax, use your common sense, and enjoy!
