Do It Yourself Akashic Wisdom: Access the Library of Your Soul

My thoughts:

This is such an unusual title that it jumped to the top of my TBR pile. I really expected it to be a disappointing mix of new-age fru fru with a dash of nineteenth century Theosophy. What I got was a book that was as entertaining to read as it was informative. I guess their description of  the Akashic dimension was the best that I have ever read.

The Akashic dimension was created as an interface with the universe or higher knowledge (God) so we can count and recount all of our thoughts, intentions, dreams,  actions, relationships, faux pas, successes, karmic credit cards, past lives, sneezes, farts, and coughs.

Those ladies had me hooked with “farts.” Not only do I have to worry about wearing my past sins like some grizzly war trophy, but now I have to worry about an Akashic  vault filled with the farts of previous lives (and people, I love spicy food).

The  book is broken into 14 chapters easy to digest chapters with a nice though diminutive glossary at the end of the book.  Having said that, I would like to have seen more than just a couple of pages on the “Trailblazers of the Akashic Craze.” I loved the “Tips” from Aunt Patty and Aunt Jacki. All in all, I enjoyed the book and I give Do It Yourself Akashic Wisdom 4 1/2 stars out of 5. I recommend it for your esoteric home library.

Product description:

The Akashic Records, or “The Book of Life,” is a dimension of consciousness that contains a vibrational record of every soul and its journey. For the spiritual seeker or the average Joe, most of us would like to know the meaning of our lives. And we’d all love to have a handbook to guide us through the pitfalls and challenges, and learn to embrace our place in it all. The Akashic Records offer just that–a guide to understanding your life and its lessons. In fact, they are a complete library of guidebooks, which help you understand yourself and your place in the divine universe.

Akashic Anarchist Sisters Patty Shaw and Jacki Smith not only teach you how to access your records, they also teach you how to break into the library and bring home the books! Through the use of journaling, mediations, personal rituals, and visualizations, you’ll learn how to read your records, understand their meaning, and use that knowledge to change your life. With humor and spiritual wisdom that comes from a lifetime of hacking into their own records, Shaw and Smith offer readers a unique and practical guide to learn the true wisdom of the Akashic Records.

Readers learn:

  • How the divine communicate with you, every day
  • What to do when life throws you a curveball
  • The Who’s Who of the Akashic Records
  • A Glossary of Akashic Terms
