Some six years ago during a Soul workshop, mention was made of the Akashic Records and Shreshta Carol's name was mentioned. My curiosaity was aroused and I subsequently had a reading done by her. However before writing briefly of my experience I would like to direct you to Linda Howe’s web site.

Linda Howe is the founder and director of the Center for Akashic Studies. It has been said that she is an inspirational author, gifted teacher and the leading expert in the field of Akashic Studies. She specializes in the use of the Akashic Records for personal empowerment and consciousness development.

Her breakthrough book, 'How to Read the Akashic Records' (Sounds True, 2009), provides clear instructions for learning how to use this rich spiritual treasury.

A beloved teacher, Linda Howe is known for making spiritual ideas readily understandable and useful in the daily lives of her students, enabling them to experience the growth and transformation they seek. Since 1996, Linda has successfully taught thousands of people to work in the Records as a spiritual practice.

Below is an excerpt of an article by Linda and the respective web site link.

The Akashic Record is a dimension of consciousness that contains a vibrational record of every soul and its journey. It is completely available everywhere. Location and time do not affect the Record. Human beings have been interacting consciously and unconsciously with this body of energies throughout history. These interactions have been both deliberate and accidental. Referred to in virtually every major traditional religion as the Book of Life and the Book of God's Remembrance, this body of wisdom has been an ever-present source of spiritual support for people including those in our Western Judeao-Christian tradition.

The Record is an experiential body of wisdom, insight, guidance, and healing information. It can be accessed by means of a simple sacred prayer. Saying this prayer causes a shift in the consciousness of the reader sufficient to register the subtle impressions of the Record. It is a mutual action, where the reader moves into alignment with the Record--and at the same time, the Record moves within the reach of the individual reader.

This collective of spiritual consciousness is best revealed through a spiritual means, such as prayer. It is not a body of thought that can be linked with the mind through mental discipline (like visualization), although thought is included with the Record, as is emotion. The access of the Record can not be achieved through emotional or sensational means, though for many, the experience of the unconditional love of the Record can be very emotional. Essentially, the most efficient and effective means to spiritual consciousness is through spiritual action.

The Records are governed by the Three Absolutes: Fear Not, Resist Not, and Judge Not. This makes for a very safe and loving and also encouraging environment.

Briefly here is my experience with The Akashic Records read to me by Shreshta Carol. 

Typical of some of the questions I asked during my reading were:

What was the nature and extent of my contract that I had entered into prior to reincarnating on Earth?
What was the nature and extent of the karmic lessons that I had undertaken to learn in this life time?
Why did I choose my parents prior to my conception?
What was the nature and extent of the respective female and male parenting roles of my Mother and Father?
What is my Soul Purpose?
What was the nature and extent of the contract between my former wife and me?

Interestingly in a past life both my Father and I were simultaneously my Mother’s suitors, however she chose neither!
