Time for Straight Talk

Time for Straight Talk! If you are considering learning to open the Akashic Records with me — perhaps in ZENITH — then here are some thoughts that you need to consider before applying.

First, let’s be clear about expectations, yours and mine.

Learning to connect with the Akashic Records is tremendously rewarding.

However, your learning can also be confusing and challenging as you try to make sense of new experience in new territory.

Learning can also be painful because the process you go through asks you to look at warts, weaknesses, and uncomfortable bits.

At the same time, this learning can also be an amazing experience, pushing you as you grow and become.

Being clear about expectations and commitments will help you assess whether this is the right program for you.

Clarity also helps establish a clear compass to help you move forward when you’re struggling.

You may get the process immediately and feel like a failure later on. You may struggle initially in fear you won’t get it and then it all falls into place. Rarely is someone unable to engage with the Akashic Records if they make sincere effort and don’t give up.

Generally speaking, learning to open your Akashic Records is about you developing a strong sense of self trust that you can get to your truth. In opening for Other, the challenge help solidifies a strong sense of self-worth. And just when you think you got it all, resistance will push at you to re-examine and release hard-won truth and belief which now no longer serves the best of you and who you can become.

I don’t spend time figuring out what your learning experience will be, because that’s for you to claim and be responsible for. The components of the Intensive are here to support you. However, you may need more and neither of us will know until you are in the thick of it all.

Also know that when I speak about Other, I mean all flows of energy other than your own. This includes not only people but also animals, businesses, geographical features, buildings, and more.

Also know that most of my students are not interested in the Akashic Records to become a Reader as a career – though there are certainly those who do. Most of my students are interested in research and exploration in the Akashic Records as well as deep, personal spiritual growth.

This learning process prepares you for the deepest levels of work in the Akashic Records possible and helps you discover your path into the most powerful parts of yourself.

The challenge is to stay focused and not be diverted. Every student I’ve had in the Intensive reports a moment when they were so overwhelmed they wanted to bolt, run for the hills, because the depth was both more than expected and exactly what they sought. Our relationship will support you through the integration you are experiencing. And this, among many reasons, is why asking for assistance is critically important.

It’s also important to discuss your expectations for this Intensive, and how it will impact your life.

Opening the Akashic Records can be done in several ways.

One way is to see this as an easy quick fix to whatever ails you.

Another is to understand that this is a serious deep dive for those seeking powerful spiritual awareness of themselves and their spiritual journey.

This learning is for the serious spiritual seeker not for the quick fix.

My expectations are that you are able to be responsible for yourself, able to self-initiate study, and, most importantly you are able and willing to ask for help.

I will show up as promised, stand as powerful witness to your process, and share whatever is needed and possible for me in the moment of your asking.

I aim for authenticity, honesty, and truth. I appreciate and am honored by the same from you.
