I’ve recently been nudged into returning to accessing the Akashic Records in my daily meditations. My friend, Helen Nibs of Ripples of Light, recommended reading the instructive book, How To Read the Akashic Records by Linda Howe. Spiritual development is an ongoing process. Howe’s book is a very good instruction manual for understanding the Akashic Records. She outlines steps for accessing the Masters, Teachers and Loved Ones charged with overseeing the Records, both for yourself and others.
I’ve delved into the records before, but it’s been a while. You can read previous posts here. On occasion I have turned to Helen for in-depth readings when faced with important life questions and decisions. The insights gained in those sessions have been illuminating. The Akashic Guides have a bigger perspective of our past experience, relationships, and future possibilities. Surprising insights to personal issues can bring breakthroughs. Past life connections often have tangible effects on the current life experience. Most recently I’ve been bothered with neck and arm discomfort, with nerve tingling in my right hand. It started last winter when I made the move to a much colder climate. I’ve done many things to address the issue—new pillow, buying a muscle gun, acupuncture, swimming and hot tub. Those things all helped. But, Helen provided the missing piece of my puzzle.
After reading Howe’s book, we decided to practice reading each other’s Akashic Records, though she is far more experienced and intuitive, than I. I asked her about a certain relationship. She saw us is an incarnation in Roman times.
She asked me, “Do you have a scar on your right arm? Are you worried about losing the use of your right hand?”
Surprised by the question, because I hadn’t asked about my arm, I replied, “Well, yes, lately, with all this tingling stuff that’s been going on.” Then I told her about my neck and arm.
She said, “I see you as an old man in a village that Roman soldiers were taking over. You ran out yelling at them. A soldier swiped at you with his sword and wounded your right arm. It didn’t heal well and you lost a lot of use of the hand and arm.”
That was an “ah-ha moment.” I know from reading and observation that past life health issues can suddenly materialize “out of nowhere” when a person reaches the approximate age that something significant occurred in another incarnation. Since Helen’s insight, I’ve worked on healing that past life experience in various ways during my meditations. My hand and arm are markedly better.
Life Purpose Revealed
One morning I opened the records and received a key insight through a vision and download of information. I saw many people in a foggy place. Children were the most visible, but a crowd of people beyond them kept going and disappeared into the fog.
Who are they? I thought.
Those are all your children, came the reply. Your main purpose in this incarnation has been to be a mother figure. Your influence goes beyond what you can see. You have not understood the value of this purpose, but it is significant.
Another Ah-Ha Moment. I was a young woman of the 60’s and 70’s in the United States, influenced by the women’s liberation movement. I wanted to be Mary Richards from The Mary Tyler Moore Show. An independent career woman. I loved the That Girl moment with Marlo Thomas. In college I embraced books like Betty Freidan’s Feminine Mystic and The Female Eunuch by Germaine Greer.
My generation was supposed to change the world with exciting careers. Being “just a wife and mother” was a cop out, a fallback life for the weak and timid. So, even though I’ve had a lovely life, I’ve carried sense of failure for not breaking a glass ceiling or winning a seat in the good old boy’s club. I’ve mainly been, well, “just a wife and mother,” though I’ve written books, had jobs, and led organizations.
That moment in the Akashic Records changed my point of view. Being a strong mother is no small accomplishment and, frankly, has brought me my greatest joy. At this point in my life, I have two daughters and seven grandchildren. They give me purpose and and immeasurable happiness. Today our toddler, Caleb, helped me water plants and harvest tomatoes and cucumbers. Is there anything more precious than those moments? No.
Beyond my personal clan, I’ve been “Mother T” to a prisoner in the California system for almost 20 years. Though we’ve never met or spoken, I’ve maintained a pen-pal relationship with a three-strikes-and-you’re-out drug offender, Russ. By encouraging him to live his best life, even incarcerated, there’s been a positive ripple effect to other prisoners, as Russ has gotten correspondent college degrees and leads 12-step groups.
Wherever I’ve worked, volunteered, or opened my time and energy to healing energy clients, I’ve been a mother hen. It’s just my way. With the insight of the Guides, I now see that trait as my core life purpose. So, I am not a failed feminist after all. Indeed, being a strong, nurturing mother is a role to embrace. Of course, being a CEO or President of the United States would be good. But embracing the Divine Feminine is something to celebrate and explore too.
We all need to follow our best life paths. Accessing the Akashic Records can bring personal transformation and insights. Get started for yourself by reading Linda Howe’s How to Read the Akashic Records and discover the immense help and wealth of information available to you. Find those amazing Ah-Ha Moments.
What a beautiful blog post. I will check out Linda’s book. Thank you, Dana!
