Acashic records

Akasha is a Sanskrit word, and means "Primary substance," that out of which all things are formed. According to Aquarian philosophy, it is the first stage of the crystallisation of spirit. This philosophy recognises the fact that all primordial substance is spirit; that matter is spirit moving at a lower rate of vibration, becoming, as one master expressed it, a coagulum. This Akashic, or primary substance, is of exquisite fineness and is so sensitive that the slightest vibrations of an ether any place in the universe registers an indelible impression upon it.

In Theosophy and the various New Age-related faiths, the Akashic Records are records of all knowledge, including all human experience down to the finest detail, held in the universe. The records are said to exist on another universal level of consciousness and/or some other plane of reality. The Akashic records resemble a library and are also compared to a universal computer (some would say the 'Mind of God').

The Akashic Records are referred to e.g. by Edgar Cayce who stated that each person is held to account after life and 'confronted' with their personal Akashic record of what they have/not done in life in a karmic sense. This is not however a process evaluated by the supposed limited lowly earth plane mind i.e. the brain, but one fathomed by the higher mind or one's 'super-consciousness'. In this higher state of consciousness, one is assumed capable of seeing the recent life as merely one amongst the many the soul may have had. From this vantage point of God like function, with total compassion and understanding one can clearly assess the life and the soul's spiritual progress. Learning being the prime directive of the soul (according to those who believe in this sort of thing).

Jane Roberts in the Seth books describes a different version of a similar idea when Seth asserts that the fundamental stuff of the universe is ideas and consciousness, and that an idea once conceived exists for ever. Seth argued that all ideas and knowledge are in principle accessible by "direct cognition". Direct cognition is similar to or perhaps identical to intuition and is said to allow direct knowing without time elapsing and without knowledge needing to be transferred e.g. in speech or text. This is similar to what Robert Monroe refers to as rotes in his out-of-body book trilogy.

Free from and independent of all religions and faiths, there exist many libraries or record repositories such as the Akashic library throughout the universe, albeit on various planes of existence. On a related noted, on Monroe focus level 27, there is a place which has been referred to by many as "the park"; a library with an incredible amount of knowledge is conveniently located there. The library and the knowledge contained within is a manifestation of some collective energy from the Higher Selves while they have incarnational experiences on Earth. The knowledge can serve to assist Higher Selves' incarnations, if appropriate or required, to learn and advance while on Earth. When all Higher Selves have achieved their goals and leave the Earth, the library will no longer be required, and hence its energy will be withdrawn.
