Akashic Records/Akashic Reading is quite famous in the spiritual industry.
The naming is cool, and you may be attracted to it just by hearing the name.
However, based on my spiritual insight, I would like to conclude first that “it is impossible for the average person to access the Akashic Records. In short, “akashic reading is not possible.
Below, I will ask, “What are the Akashic Records and Akashic Readings?” and I will try to explain why it is impossible.
What is the Akashic Record?
The Akashic Records are, simply put, the “Library of the Universe.
The Akashic Records, also known as the “Library of the Universe,” is a kind of data bank that contains all the memories, thoughts, and history of humanity since its creation.
So, in principle, if we can access and read this databank (recording layer), we can know the past, present, and future of ourselves and our subjects.
You call accessing and reading that akashic record “akashic reading”.
And if what is written in the Akashic Records is unwanted, some seem to say, “Just rewrite it, and your destiny will change.
*The Akashic Records are sometimes referred to as the “Akashic Chronicles” or other names.
Origins of Akashic Reading – Theosophy and Anthroposophy, Edgar Cayce
The term Akashic Records was first used by Madame Blavatsky of Theosophy, or Rudolf Steiner, the founder of anthroposophy, who was once a member of the same association.
In fact, not only akashic readings, but also other forms of spiritualism (spirituality) in recent years often trace their origins back to theosophy.
Theosophy itself is also an attempt to compile and systematize various religions and occultism, and it is not too much to say that the recent New Age movement, spirituality, spiritualism, and new religions have branched off from Theosophy.
The story goes that after that theosophy, Edgar Cayce, an American psychic healer, called the area he accessed during hypnotherapy the “akashic record,” and it quickly became famous.
Edgar Cayce used hypnotherapy called “mesmerism” to access the subconscious mind, while at the same time, he was able to determine the cause of illness, including past lives (Cayce assumed that there is reincarnation), and healed his patients.
Later, the concept of the Akashic Records was adopted by the New Age movement in the United States.
Where is the weirdness of the Akashic Records?
Now, below, we will examine why akashic records and akashic readings are dangerous.
There is a gap in the definition of “akashic record.”
One problem is that there is a difference between the definition of the akashic record as proposed in theosophy and anthroposophy and that adopted by Edgar Cayce.
It may be easier to see this in Jung’s depth psychology diagram, so check out the diagram.
As shown in the diagram, Jung posited the “personal unconscious” at the deeper level of the surface consciousness, the realm of the subconscious, and the “collective unconscious” at the deeper level of the surface consciousness.
The collective unconscious is also called the “universal unconscious.
In the original Theosophy and Anthroposophy, it is clear that the Akashic Records are for what Jung called the “collective unconscious”. It is, after all, the “library of the universe.
On the other hand, what Edgar Cayce called the Akashic Records are the past lives of the patient, so in Jungian terms, it is only the “personal unconscious” that is the subject.
This part of the story seems to be confused even in modern akashic readings.
A fact that is quite difficult to even read into the personal unconscious
It is said that the Buddha attained Abhijñā (direct knowledge) when he attained enlightenment under the Bodhi tree.
Abhijñā contains the power to read the past and future lives of the subject (including oneself).
In Buddhism, this Abhijñā is acquired not only by the Buddha, but also by the arhats (arahants) if they attain enlightenment.
The problem is that it takes a lot of practice to become this “arhat”.
To relate to Jung’s earlier point, even the ability to read the “personal unconscious” is not something that can be acquired by just taking a few courses.
Even the Buddha attained Abhijñā after six years of difficult and painful practice.
The ability to read the original Akashic Records, which are the Akasha Chronicles belonging to the “collective unconscious,” is something that can only be acquired by those who have lived in the Buddhist realm, such as Buddha and Jesus, or in the highest level of the bodhisattva realm.
Which of the world’s “akashic leaders” can claim to have attained the same level of cognition as Buddha or Jesus?
Or, even if you narrow it down to the realm of the personal unconscious, Arhat enlightenment is not easily attainable.
I have personally met people who call themselves akashic readers, but I quickly realized that they are not doing readings, but simply speaking from intuition or “guesswork”.
So, in conclusion, “Akashic reading is almost entirely a lie.
It is dangerous to go into meditation without mental conditioning
Then, with akashic reading, there tends to be a lot of interest in “accessing the akashic record anyway”.
But when you access the subconscious layer, you are in effect entering a meditative state.
Some websites state that the first step in entering into akashic raiding is to ” empty one’s mind.
However, it is very dangerous to start from the point of ” emptying one’s mind”.
In psychology, the subconscious mind is actually near-equal to the spirit world.
So, if you access your subconscious (spirit world) without attuning your mind, you will attract spirit beings whose vibrations are close to your current state of mind.

When you live in this world, you have various kinds of worries and sufferings.
If we do not organize such things and let our “mind be nothing,” we will be in tune with spirit beings, or evil spirits, who are worried and suffering.
This is the so-called “possession phenomenon.
Anyway, the biggest problem with akashic readings is that they do not teach “attunement of the mind” prior to accessing the akashic record. This is the biggest danger point here.
There are two types of spirituality: truth spirituality and witchcraft spirituality
There is quite a bit of “witchcraft spirituality” in contemporary spirituality, not limited to the Akashic Records.
I admit that there are certain achievements in asserting that there is a spiritual dimension beyond the physical dimension of this world, but, however, witchcraft spirituality is not a path that truly leads one to happiness.
It is a characteristic of witchcraft spirituality to try to secure the well-being of the self in this life by pulling in mystical power from outside.
In short, although we call it “spiritual,” the emphasis is on the phenomenal world (this world).
As the Buddha extolled, all worldly things are impermanent. They are in transition.
Placing happiness points on such impermanence is no more than a temporary comfort.
Rather, it is essential to place the happiness point in the eternal “real world. The real is immutable and universal because it is real, and therefore deserves a happiness point.
