WHAT: Kelly Jones, cofounder of AkashVille, hosts the release of her self-published book, Akashic Records: Soul Dialogues. A trained medium in reading akashic records (from the Sanskrit word “akasha” for “luminous” or “ether”), Jones will offer attendees an opportunity to ask questions about their own records.
WHEN: 7-9 p.m., Friday, Nov. 21
WHERE: Crystal Visions Bookstore, Hendersonville.
WHY: The term “akashic records” first came into the Western lexicon through late 19th century Theosophists, a group that sought direct knowledge of the mysteries of being and the nature of divinity.
“Every spiritual tradition refers to the akashic records in some way, shape, or form,” says Jones. “The Bible, for example, refers to them as ‘The Book of Life’ — it’s what is recorded of our every thought, word, deed and action. … I use a sacred prayer that allows me access [to them] — with one’s permission — and it actually shifts my brain-wave patterns from a beta state to an alpha/theta state, which allows for an expansion of consciousness to see, sense, feel [and] know more than what the localized mind accesses,” she says.
Launched in March 2012, AkashVille is a meetup group where Jones accesses records for attendees. Her book Soul Dialogues is a compendium of discussions that took place at meetups through December 2013
So what insights or help can people hope to experience through an akashic record reading? “The human condition is very much one of: ‘Tell me what to do,’” says Jones, “But [the lords of the akashic records] don’t play in the world of taking away one’s free will. … Instead, the information that they provide transforms people’s perspective into ‘wow, I’m the master creator in co-creation with life in the universe! How can I interact with this field around me so that I become in greater congruence and harmony with my purpose, my life, and my path?’”
