When I’m doing Akashic Records Readings, most of my clients receive information from their Record Keepers about a previous lifetime that is causing a challenge—whether it’s a physical condition, disease, blockage or fear—in their present life. This information is non-judgmental, loving and supportive… Akashic Record Keepers are NOT “score keepers” or karmic “enforcers.” Instead, they patiently explain how the nature of karma has changed to be very different from the popular (mis)conception.
In virtually all cases, what we think of as a “karmic” condition is SELF-imposed.
Here is how the Record Keepers explain it, compiled from dozens of readings:
From our point of view in the 11th dimension, there are no right or wrong choices, no good or bad, positive or negative. What’s important is the spirit in which the choice is made, and what the person who makes the choice takes away from it. Often, who you were in that lifetime takes away a sense of guilt, remorse, betrayal, anger, shame–and carries it forward into the present lifetime in the form of a pattern or a belief that could be expressed this way: “Because I did something wrong, because I caused pain or suffering in that lifetime, I deserve to suffer something similar in this life.”
Karma today is almost always SELF-imposed! It is you judging yourself to have done something wrong or bad, or to have harmed someone, or failed to save the people you loved—then you decided to carry forward that remorse or guilt or shame or fear to block yourself in this life.
There are no stern Lords of Karma shaking fingers at you and demanding, ‘You must pay because you made a mistake!’ You yourself decided that you feel remorse or guilt or shame or regret about decision that you made. That is what you’re carrying over in this lifetime that’s causing pain, or blocking yourself.
Why are we telling you about these traumas and heartbreaks? Not because there’s any judgment on our part. It is because we hope you understand that who you were in that lifetime had some very difficult choices to make. Knowing this, you may begin to feel compassion for yourself—as you would if you were reading a story or watching a movie about someone else facing those tough situations.
Once the Record Keepers sense that my client understands this idea—that you can choose to love and forgive yourself in that lifetime—they offer a way to release the self-condemnation and negative emotions brought into this life:
And now, if we have your permission, we would like to offer through Sylvia an energy transfer and sound healing that would be beneficial in helping you, if you so choose, to release, to heal the guilt, the shame, or the remorse.
You might even think of the person that you were in that lifetime as if they’re standing here in front of you… hoping, waiting, yearning to feel your compassion and your forgiveness. This allows them to release the self-condemnation and transform how they feel about themselves and their choices. You bring into their life compassion, forgiveness, and gratitude—and since you are one soul experiencing different lifetimes, you bring it into yours, too.
If there’s another person involved in that past life trauma who is in my client’s current life, the Record Keepers also offer the energy transfer/toning, and invite the client to participate by directing the healing, forgiving, clearing energies to the person they were in that lifetime… and, if they choose, to the other person who was part of the challenging situation. Many clients are very grateful to do this because they’re in a space where they are ready to let go of the belief that they need to suffer. Feeling compassion and forgiveness for the other person also helps them release negative “residue” from the past.
Once we know the true nature of our “karma,” we can heal past issues and be free going forward of those negative emotions. The shifts that happen as a result of my Akashic Records sessions are often profound and dramatic. Clients look forward to making compassionate, enlightened choices in the future.
