What is the Akasha?

What is the Akasha? This is a good question to raise when trying to understand the Akashic Records.

The word Akashic means “of, or pertaining to the Akasha.” 

Akasha is a Sanskrit word with meaning in all the religions which use Sanskrit as a holy language, including Hinduism, Buddhism and Tibetan Bon. 

Within these religions, there are different views and explanations about its — though generally, all manifest reality emerges from the Akasha.  


The Akashic Records’ Definition of Akasha

The Akasha is both source and motion for All That Is and all that emerges on the wings of consciousness of the Akasha.

The first that has awareness.

The first that is conscious of movement.

Akasha Consciousness is the origin of all things and the mother of all things.

When one steps into the awareness or the consciousness of Akasha, one is stepping into the genesis of awareness, the origin of how awareness becomes part of soul experience, soul knowledge, and soul understanding.

There is beauty in this moment!  There is joy in this moment!

There is a peace that comes in the stillness between the receiving and the giving.

The Akashic consciousness is the foundation and the essence for this motion.

There is a newness in this perspective which heralds a shift in the understanding of what it means to live a life that is integrated spiritually and physically.

This awareness brings a new perspective.

An awareness of how one can engage in a conscious way with All That Is.

There are many words which can describe this experience.  There are many beliefs which engage with this experience.

With the Akasha coming into consciousness, it allows any who hear and respond to the call to have their lives moved within this new perspective.
