I indie-published WHY WE ARE BORN in 2014. It has been selling steadily primarily by word of mouth, and I cannot thank enough.
"I consider this book required reading for any metaphysical seeker. Pretty big praise, but well-deserved because she takes concepts that are huge and often confusing to the average Joe or Jane and makes them understandable and relatable to real life."
~ Pathways magazine


My next goal is to entertain you with fiction; novels that shake your common sense and are loving in a strange way.

What you find on GR is Akemi as a person who likes to read, among other things. I think it's awkward when an author comments to the reviews of their own books, so I restrain myself from doing so; in other words, I seldom use GR for my m

“Few words have been misunderstood more than “love,” perhaps with the exception of “God”
Akemi G, Why We Are Born: Remembering Our Purpose through the Akashic Records

“Synchronicity happens when we align with the flow of the universe rather than insisting the universe flow our way.”
Akemi G, Why We Are Born: Remembering Our Purpose through the Akashic Records

“Life is never against you because you are the one who is creating it.”
Akemi G, Why We Are Born: Remembering Our Purpose through the Akashic Records

“Unending Love

I seem to have loved you in numberless forms, numberless times...
In life after life, in age after age, forever.
My spellbound heart has made and remade the necklace of songs,
That you take as a gift, wear round your neck in your many forms,
In life after life, in age after age, forever.

Whenever I hear old chronicles of love, it's age old pain,
It's ancient tale of being apart or together.
As I stare on and on into the past, in the end you emerge,
Clad in the light of a pole-star, piercing the darkness of time.
You become an image of what is remembered forever.

You and I have floated here on the stream that brings from the fount.
At the heart of time, love of one for another.
We have played along side millions of lovers,
Shared in the same shy sweetness of meeting,
the distressful tears of farewell,
Old love but in shapes that renew and renew forever.

Today it is heaped at your feet, it has found its end in you
The love of all man's days both past and forever:
Universal joy, universal sorrow, universal life.
The memories of all loves merging with this one love of ours -
And the songs of every poet past and forever.”
Rabindranath Tagore, Selected Poems

“It matters not who you love, where you love, why you love, when you love or how you love, it matters only that you love”
John Lennon

“If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.”

“The sky is not my limit...I am.”
T.F. Hodge, From Within I Rise: Spiritual Triumph Over Death and Conscious Encounters with "The Divine Presence"

Jeffrey Keeten Thanks for the friend request Akemi! I'm looking forward to watching your feed and finding more Japanese novels I should have on my TBR!


Dolors Thank you very much for your friend request, Akemi. I am ecstatic to see your love and understanding of Japanese lit. I am still a neophyte in it but I have great enthusiasm and I bet we will have wonderful discussions about books, life and other interesting matters. I notice you mentioned Shakespeare as one of your fav writers. Another match. I have "The Tale of the Genji" spotted out and your response encourages me to tackle it sooner than later.
