Remember, Reconnect, Realign — Part II Akashic Studies

By Gwynne Mayer

 On Dreaming


“Well there are two types of deed.  One is the physical deed, in which the hero performs a courageous act in battle or saves a life.  The other kind is the spiritual deed, in which the hero learns to experience the supernormal range of human spiritual life, and then comes back with a message.”  — Joseph Campbell,  The Power of the Myth


Do we get lost in the ‘now’?  Can we find our true purpose in life?  Is the ‘one’ perfect relationship going to be available to me in this life?  Remembering who we are as a ‘soul’, reconnecting to our soul evolvement, and realigning our personalities to our soul’s purpose are integral to knowing what our future holds for us.  Coming to an understanding of why we chose to be here on this planet at the most exciting time in our history is of primary importance in relationship to the purposes we have chosen.  That is why we must remember who we are, reconnect to our soul’s purpose and realign ourselves to the mission in front of us. Coming to terms with our abilities to meditate, calm our brains, rid ourselves of ego based defense mechanisms are disciplines which must be sustained through the time we are delving into the Akashic records.  There are many ways to address the Akasha, the universal library of knowledge and soul life.  We are looking at developing our own disciplines so as to perform a service to self,  others and help others remember, reconnect and realign our soul’s purpose into a here and now paradigm, to enable us to see how and why we are manifesting their our purposeful agenda at this time in our history.  Our purpose in going through a blend of Robert Monroe’s work with Hemi-Sync and Edgar Cayce’s work with the Akashic Records is to blend the findings of these two philosophies and ideas, bringing them into the 21st century and giving them practical application for each of us to move forward with our own understanding of our soul’s purpose.


Edgar Cayce went into the Akasha while in trance states

Puryear states “The Edgar Cayce story raises numerous questions about the inner world as a source of transformation.  How does the psychic ability relate to us?  What are the pitfalls of turning within?  What was the source of the information Edgar Cayce gave?  What are the steps we should take in evaluating other sources.”p.3

The following comes from the Australian Armageddon: Doomsday in Our Lifetime?  by Bob Leaman, originally published in 1986 by Greenhouse Publications. The book is no longer in print.

 “It made no difference to Cayce whether his patient was sitting next to him in the same room or a total stranger living hundreds of miles away. His preparations for the health reading were always the same. As he himself described it, he would first loosen his clothing in order to have a perfectly free flowing circulation. He would then lie on the couch in his office, with his head to the south, and his feet to the north. Placing his hands on his forehead between his eyes, he would wait a few moments until he received what he would call the go signal, a flash of brilliant white light. Cayce would then move his hands to his solar plexus, and fall into a trance. His wife would tell him the name and location of the patient, leaving out any mention of age, sex or physical problem. Cayce might pause a while before repeating the name and address until he had succeeded in ‘locating’ the patient and describing his or her condition. He would then prescribe medication and any other corrective measures, always ending his reading with the words: “We are through.”

Those who came into contact with Cayce were continually taken aback by the depth of medical knowledge generally known, not yet on the market, or which had long since passed out of use. Although he had a conscious knowledge only of the English language, Cayce is also estimated to have spoken in some two d ozen foreign tongues while in a trance. The unconscious Cayce believed there was a cure for every health problem, including cancer, in nature, providing that cure could be found in time. He seldom advocated operations, believing that surgery was much overworked. Cayce took a holistic approach to health. He believed that a man was composed of body, mind and spirit, and that all three are one. He talked about consciousness in the cells of the body, each contributing to the total consciousness of the individual. Health, he indicated, would flow from a perfect harmony of body and mind. In accordance with the concept that we are what we eat, think and believe, Cayce would often urge his patients to improve their mental and spiritual outlook in order to regain their health.”


My background in the study of neurology and the psychology of the brain led me to Robert Monroe, the founder of Hemi-Sync.  I noticed that the brain has to be in a state of trance, a sort of sleeping condition to receive information in the Akashic Soul Records.  We are much too stressed in our daily lives to automatically go there in that meditative state.  However,  the Hemi-Sync CD’s are geared to synchronize the brain through binaual sounds and then activate the parts of the brain that would bring in the information from the astral level and from the Akashic library. This method allows us to mobilize our brains to a higher state of consciousness by activating the brain using sound. 


Monroe says, “…means that when your ear hears a certain type of sound signal, the brain tends to respond or ‘resonate’ with similar electrical signals.  Knowing that various electrical brain waves are indicators of states of consciousness (such as awake or asleep), you thus can listen to a similar sound pattern and it will help you be in the desired state of awareness.  Hemi-Sync takes the process an important step further.  Each ear sends its dominant nerve signal to the opposite brain hemisphere, following the X pattern.  When separate sound pulses are sent to each ear (using headphones to isolate one ear from the other), the halves of the brain must act in unison to ‘hear’  a third signal, which is the difference between the two signals in each ear.  For example, I f you hear a sound measuring 100 in one ear and another signal of 125 in the other, the signal your whole brain will ‘generate’ will  be 25.  It is never an actual sound, but it is an electrical signal that only can be created by both brain hemispheres acting and working together.  The signal so generated is narrow-band in frequency and often twice the amplitude or strength of a typical EEG brain-wave form.”

Taken from Far Journeys by Robert Monroe:


“Our first studies were a continuation of the sleep research begun in New York .  The demand for solution to a problem brought one of our early results of significance.  Because so much of the reported out-of-body states, including many of my own, revolved around the sleep state, we still believed some answers would be found in this area.  However, most of our subjects arrived at night after dinner, and with long, boring periods of being wired up with electrodes, they were either too tired to stay awake in the booth or too restless to be able to relax enough to report any subtle or subjective responses.  It defeated our purpose to use any types of medication or drugs to control these states, so we looked for a method within our own frame of reference.

     The old truism held.  Necessity is the mother.  It was through this need to help our subjects stay awake, get into a borderland sleep state, that we began to try utilizing sound.  This resulted in the discovery of Frequency-Following Response (FFR), which permitted us to hold the subject in a certain state of consciousness between wakefulness and sleep for extended periods of time.  By introducing certain sound patterns in the subjects ear we determined that there was a similar electrical response in the brain waves of the subject.  By controlling the brain-wave frequency, we were able to help the subject relax, keep him awake, or put him to sleep.  One of our engineering participants suggested that we patent this unusual process, and we received a patent on the method and technique in 1975.” pp. 17-19 Far Journeys


It is an individual preference as to how and when we meditate…it is really a matter of calming the brain to allow information to come through.  When information comes through it is important to keep our personalities and ego out of the way. That is the training we need, the discipline to learn to access the records and then to be able to dictate our findings without editing with the aid of ego or personality issues, like judging, defending or assuming. We also don’t have to have a certain belief system or get hung up in an organized religious connection, but more so trust in our relationship to God and how we handle allowing a higher power to guide us.


  Akashic Records  author,  Kevin J. Todeschi states:

“Primarily, the Akashic Records of the past provide individuals with a framework of potentials and probabilities in the present.  That framework exists for everyone. An individual doesn’t need to be open to the possibility of reincarnation for the records to impact his or her life, relationships, thoughts, and activities…. According to Edgar Cayce, the Akashic Records constantly provide us with the very experiences and relationships that we need at the present time.  Whether or not we face those experiences and people (who may just as readily appear to be ‘positive’ as they do ‘negative’) in the best possible manner becomes a matter of free will.  Every choice, thought, and decision we make in the present has an effect upon the substance of the next series of potentials and probabilities we draw toward us.  In the language of the readings, “For ever, day by day, is there a choice to be made by each soul”  (1538-1).  One set of choices may lead to growth, transformation, and ultimately happiness, and the other may lead to further problems, frustrations, and personal difficulties.”


Linda Howe speaks to what the records are and what the records are not in her book on the How to Read the Akashic Records.  The records are:

  • Available to all who seek them. Religious affiliation does not affect a person’s right to access the Record or to have their Records opened. 
  • From the “Akasha,” a Sanskrit word and meaning “primary substance” – that out of which all things are formed.  The Record is known in every spiritual tradition, For example, in the Judeo-Christian tradition as both “The Book of Life” and “The Book of God’s Remembrance.”
  • Filled with the wisdom and energetic input that can be inspirational and supportive to artists and entrepreneurs,  healers and scholars, and all adults of every vocation and avocation.
  • Supportive in making the fundamental shift from self-reliance to Divine reliance.
  • A blessing made available to us so that we can embrace our reality and enjoy the life we are living.
  • A soul level spiritual resource.  Everyone has a soul.  Everyone has the right to work in the Records.
  • A spiritual support enabling us to have a more conscious relationship with our own soul.

 They are not:

  • Trance channeling. A state of full consciousness is maintained at all times.
  • Religion, or favoring any particular religion.
  • Fortune telling, or for manipulation of people or events.
  • A fish pond of fascinating stories about past lives.
  • Phenomenal, sensational, or creative visualization.
  • A contest.  Everyone works at their own perfect pace.
  • A substitute for human relationships or community support.
  • An opportunity to escape ordinary life and the human experience.

I am documenting these situations as we move forward in our own personal studies of the Akashic Records and how to get involved as a ‘service’ to others, with their permission.  Our methods will be to move as a group into the Akasha answering questions, doing meditative exercise and most importantly documenting what we find as a group. Everyone gets something from this; we find that each person, during meditation in the records brings back added information that is very helpful, whereas Edgar Cayce brought back the specifics in detail to answer questions.  We need the group to do that.  We will be learning how to know when our ego and our own editing is interfering and move forward with greater clarity, understanding the language of the Akasha.  My goal in all of this is for each training group to form their own service as a group and help others who might find the information rewarding and healing.
