I don't even know where to begin. There was so much that was wrong with this book. This has nothing to do with Akashic Records, and is just fluffy, dressed up intuition play (despite its weak protestations) with sides of emotional manipulation (if you're reading this book, it's because the Lords of the Records called you, "collect, long distance" and you accepted the charge) and arbitrary rules ("It's also fun to... listen to music with your Records open. Just make sure that the music is somethi ...more

The Akashic Records are ”a dimension of consciousness that contains a vibrational record of every soul and its journey”. This body of knowledge contains everything that every soul has ever thought, said and done over the course of its existence.

In this book we are guided to easily access these records both for ourselves and others. We can ask questions and be healed/heal our clients, We use the Pathway Prayer Process, which is part of the “sacred prayer” tradition, to access the Records.

I rated this book with four stars with some reservations. Basically the book is well-organized and clearly written. The author outlines what the Akashic records are all about and how they can be used for oneself as well for others. She describes a well-integrated schema for healing. I think that the companion CD set (if you don't take the course from the author at would be a useful way to begin learning to access and use the Akasha. Ordinarily I would follow her d ...more

Well meaning, but I don't believe this connects people with a "divine" or "universal" level of consciousness or "akashic records," as claimed. It reminds me of a statement by St. John of the Cross:
. . . I am appalled at what happens in these days -- namely, when some soul with the very smallest experience of meditation, if it be conscious of certain locutions of this kind in some state of recollection, at once christens them all as coming from God, and assumes that this is the case, saying: "God

If you have an interest in the Akashic records this book is a great first step. Once you have read the book your feelings will guide you into knowing what to do next.

As a hypnotherapist and shamanic teacher and student I had high hopes for the presentation of this material. In this New Age of techniques and energies coming into the planet, the myriad information about the Akashic Records can be confusing to novices and even veteran students. I went into this book excitedly seeking a different approach to the Records. While Howe clearly demonstrates her own experiences using the Records for herself and others, I remain unconvinced that this is a solid text fo ...more

The first book I've read on this specific topic; I followed the precise directions recommended by the author and her method did work for me. There are too many autobiographical anecdotes peppered throughout the text, but I plan to investigate the Records through other resources, and am glad that this book came to me as a gift from a good friend. Would recommend it as a "primer" for those with experience in the discipline of meditation.

Going into the Akashic records is fascinating. It gives me a different perspective on what is happening in my life.

Listening to this audio book is a first step for me. I am listening to her second book about healing in the Akashic records. There is a whole world in there and I am excited to continue to learn more about it.
First off, the writing in this book is quite clear and easy to follow--that what it has going for it--so if you are interested in the Akasha then you might give it a try...from there you just need to figure out if you feel comfortable following Linda Howe's Pathway Prayer. That's what I have to figure out for myself at this junction.

Not the most engaging or best written book I've read, but the information it shares is invaluable. A self- empowering book that accomplishes what it sets out to do.
Much appreciation to Linda Howe for sharing this information :)

I took the corresponding live class to learn how to read the Records, but reading this book was a great benefit too. Linda is a fantastic teacher and her Pathway Prayer Process has always worked like a charm for me.

One of the books that made me realize that there are no gods, no goddesses, no life after death and no "magick." Now I'm an atheist. Seriously -- how can anyone with an ounce of common sense believe this stuff?

I haven't done the exercises yet, or said the prayer so I don't know if this works just from reading a book. I'll try though. The one thing I don't like is all the talk of Gd. If she used Source or Creator it would make it more palatable for me. I do appreciate the sharing of information.

Whether or not I believe in the Akashic Records doesn't really matter when reading this book - which I treated as a 'Self-Help'. It was full of insightful meditative questions one can ask themselves about their life, their path. I found it really interesting.

I will get back to this one during a more introspective time in my life. Too much on my plate at the moment!

My first read on the subject. A good introductory primer perhaps but I have yet to make an emotional or spiritual connection. Need to investigate further.

Intriguing. Off the wall. Access to the Book of Life to help guide our choices? Why not? So many things are there only for the asking. My first try at it was VERY interesting!

Interesting read. Straight forward in its explanations, instructions and simplicity. Will be going back through it again to capture more of the instructional phases of the book.

Well written, an interesting account of the sometimes mysterious Akashic Records. Nice spiritual as well as research source.

I chose this rating because you asked for a review before, you would let me read the book. I decided to read because I read other reviews that intrigued me.

Wow. I didn't really know what to expect when I checked this out of the library. I'm glad I found it - or it found me - right at the right time!

A sort of holistic healing technique for understanding oneself and others. A bit of fluff, I expected something more substantial,it was light but well written.

After nearly two decades of spiritual searching, I encountered the Akashic Records in 1994, and have been deliberately engaging them for personal growth and consciousness development (for myself and others) ever since! One of the first ideas I explored was accessing the Akasha as an infinite, spiritual resource for empowerment and transformation. At the time, I thought I clearly understood it all. ...more
