Has anyone heard of those? According to Edgar Cayce, the Akashic Records are  huge database that exists on the astral plane, which apparently contains onformation about everyone and all of their lives and accomplishments,including people who have yet to live.

Has anyone ever accessed these? Can you explain your experience? Or for that matter, what are everyones thoughts on the topic to begin with?

I have found it fascinating and want to know more. Me and astral travel don't mesh well,lol.......so any information would be helpful.

Bright Blessings.

The Wikipedia article seems fairly accurate (at least right now): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akashic_Records

The cocept seems to have originated with Theosophy in the 1800s -- which makes it extremely suspect, IMHO.

I have never heard of "Akashic Records" before, but it sounds similar to something I believe, however, I have no idea how to explain it.......I will go ahead and try....words are limiting especially when explaining concepts like these.......forgive me if it seems like rambling!

Basically, everything that happens makes an imprint.
Say a dog runs out in front of a car, and the driver must hit the breaks, swerves and hits a tree. The event is imprinted "impartially" so to speak (for lack of a better word), but it is also recorded from the driver's perspective, the dog's perspective, the tree's perspective, and the perspective of any witnesses. Hence, one event is actually recorded in many ways. Everything makes an imprint like this, from a bug crawling across a kitchen floor to great catastrophies like the World Trade Center.

So, the database concept isn't far from this. As for future events, they are not definate, so they change. If you think of this database as a computer then it also makes sense, the things that are and the things that have been can be extrapolated out to predict what might or probably will be.  (This is also why people who predict the future can be wrong - the answer first received was right for that particular moment but things later changed to alter the future) This is similar to Scrooge's visit from the ghost of Christmas yet to be - "are these the things that will be? or might be?"  Scrooge was shown the future as it would be unless he changed. Who knows, maybe Dickens had the oportunity to explore this database himself.

I don't think it is a place you have to "travel" to.  It can even open up or come to you if you are receptive enough.

Many religions have similar ideas where your actions are recorded (and some believe you are later judged).

The universe and everything contained in it is one big entity. We are just an aspect of the universe. Separate, yet not. It's like the body, all these little cells doing their own thing make the whole.
 
Please don't ask me for my sources....this is something that I have learned, but I don't know how.

So, maybe this is what you are speaking of, maybe not, but it's how I see it.

Yes, but I have also seen another theory, I don't recall the name....maybe time continuum?.but it basically states that things like that are only true in our level of existance, that according to the universe there is no linear time. it's a concept that past, present, and future all coexist at the same moment...not on a time line like we use. I wish i could recall where I had read that and what it was called specifically. I found it intriguing nonetheless.

I wish you could recall the name - sounds interresting!
There's also the concept that we exist on various  "planes" (can't think of a better word to use) This isn't parallel lives, something different - in death for example, when someone passes on, they take us with them in the form of memmories, so that we are still with them, but we actually do exist there too. I know I am not explaining it well at all.

Maybe what I am trying to say is that we exist in other worlds simultaneously, we're just not conscience of it on this plane or world.  We ourselves are much larger than we think we are. So basically linear time might exhist for us here but not some place else.
Does any of this make any sense?

Personally, the only time I've ever come into contact with the concept is in fiction (or REALLY bad non-fiction). Part of my skepticism probably stems from the fact that I don't really believe in these sorts of things. So fictional works work OK, but taking them seriously in non-fiction is something I have trouble with.

I personally like to just beleive in possibilities, though on some topics I don't entirely rule it out......I however am very doubtful of it,lol. On this topic I don't really know either way. That's why I figured i'd post a topic on it and see if anyone had a personal experience with it.

My problem isn't just with the concept, it's with the time it came out and who came up with it. For me, anything like this that makes an appearance in the 1800s is cause for a whole lot of salt while reading.

I wish i could recall where I had read that and what it was called specifically. I found it intriguing nonetheless.

The concept that time is not linear and everything happens all at once (and so is technically already over) was in one of SRW's books, I believe...either To Ride... or To Stir.... It's probably been explored in other places, but I read it first in one of those....thinking now I'm pretty sure it was To Ride.... (Would quote source/page but most of my books are in boxes still and I'm not even sure if I still have that one.) I don't remember the hypothesis' name or if it even had one in that book.

An interesting concept to be sure. If it's true and our past is our future and vice versa then it would explain a bunch of stuff, like precognition (how do you know what's going to happen in the future? It's already happened!) and highly advanced lost civilizations (they were highly advanced cause they haven't happened yet!).

You would have thought that if these records existed and the Theosophists had access to them, their histories of the world would have been much more accurate. Smiley

I definetely didn't get it from SRW,lmao. I think the book had the word paganism in it but i'm not sure, it was so long ago. I swear I have halfheimers,lol.

That is a good point!
