What is the Akashic Records?

Wednesday, January 10, 2024

This week I am honored to feature Medium and ​podcaster​, ​Jo Figueras​. She is here to teach us what the Akashic Records is and how she accesses it in her readings to help people align with their soul's plan. (Jo has read for me - she is amazing!)

Jo Figueras is a Spiritual Medium who uses her psychic abilities to interpret a person’s original Soul Blueprint. Using numerology, astrology, and human design within the Akashic Records, she can look at the original plan your Higher Self wrote for you in the Life Between Life phase of existence.

The Akashic Records aren’t just about past lives - they are so much more.

What are the Akashic Records?

Pronounced Ah-kah-shick, the records are energy - specifically, an energetic record of your soul’s journey through the Universe.

But the Akashic Records are not an actual book in a library; think of them as cloud storage for the Universe.

These records contain all thoughts, words, emotions, and events that have ever occurred in your past, present & future potential lives.

The records are the ultimate database of information for every soul in existence.

When we decide to incarnate into human form, we create a blueprint (or map) to help us stay focused on our goals, lessons, karma, and relationships.

Our Soul Blueprint is the detailed plan of our human life, but we also have free will, so this plan is more of an outline. As you live life, you fill in the details.

To help us stay aligned with our plans, we create Soul Contracts and agreements with others (soul-mates, soul-foes, etc.) to help us learn important lessons.

​To keep us focused on the goals of our soul blueprint, we enlist the help of Advisors (Spirit Guides, crossed loved ones, Angels, etc.).

What is the Difference Between Akashic Records & Psychic Readings?

During a Psychic Medium Reading, I’m a translator.

I am the go-between, delivering messages from friends & family that have crossed over to the other side, and from your Spirit Guides.

An Akashic Record Reading is different.

They're Q&A based and build on our energy.

The more we talk about a situation/issue/circumstance/relationship, the stronger the energetic frequency gets, and the easier it is to access the information contained in a record.

To make a clear connection, I ask you to talk about how you FEEL about whatever issue you are seeking clarity on.

This isn’t to fish for information.

It’s to create the strongest link possible between myself and the record I’m reading.

I then use psychic and clairvoyant abilities to see images and information that comes to me from any number of sources – the records, your loved ones, or Spirit Guides.

As you are speaking, I’m hearing, sensing, feeling detailed information, and also connecting to your Guides as a Medium and a Channel.

​I have been reading the Akashic Records for about 6 years and over that time, some really cool information has come to light again and again…

  • We reincarnate with many of the same people, over and over. These are members of our Soul Group and our Soul Family.
  • We make agreements with other souls to learn lessons together. Our relationships are mirrors to show us what the soul most wants to learn and master.
  • ​​Many of us have been killed, persecuted, threatened, or lost loved ones in previous lives.

    As a result, we may experience fears based on that life that keep us from stepping into our full potential, speaking our truth, and sharing our unique abilities with the world.

  • Beliefs, traumas, and experiences from a past life can show up in your current life.
  • When past life vows are activated in this lifetime, they can sabotage your current reality, often without you even realizing it.

    Vows of poverty and deathbed vows of regret are the most common.

    To remove these “cords” to your past, you’ll want to work with an experienced energy healer because it’s important to remove the “roots”, rather than simply “cutting” the cords.
  • Past lives don’t always show up negatively – they also bring gifts into our lives such as special skills and abilities, interests, etc.

    Our intuitive abilities belong to our soul no matter the lifetime - and we can access our soul’s skills, knowledge, and wisdom anytime we desire.
  • You can learn to open your own Akashic Record!

    Reading your record can’t be mastered overnight, however anyone can learn how to do it.

    Being able to open your record doesn’t give you carte blanch access to your past lives, it simply gives you a deeper insight into your own motivations and experiences.

    But keep in mind that it’s often easier to be read by another reader, than to interpret your own tarot, akashic record, astrology/numerology chart, etc.

Akashic Records Q&A

So now let’s look at some of the most common (and not so common) questions I get about The Akashic Records and Akashic Readings.

How do you open the Akashic Records?

I use a simple prayer to open your record and connect to Akashic energy.

​I am then able to channel information through all my psychic abilities and interpret your soul blueprint using numerology, astrology, and human design.

Do All Akashic Readers Open The Records The Same Way?

The specific method used by an Akashic Reader to open the records varies from person to person.

Using their unique psychic abilities, they create a technique specific to them.

​For example:

  • I can view past lives and how they impact current life situations when I tap into Akashic energy.
  • Another reader I know uses Akashic energy to receive information by way of automatic writing/channeling to answer specific questions via email.
  • And yet another reader uses Akashic energy to connect their clients to their animal totems and Angels.

The method of reading depends on the specific intuitive practices and techniques the reader is naturally skilled at.

What topics do you cover in an Akashic Reading?

Many aspects of your Akashic Record can be explored in a reading:

  • Career/life purpose and how to align with your soul’s plan
  • Karmic debt & soul contracts with friends, family, and foes
  • Identify intuitive abilities and learn to connect to your Spirit Guides to develop a stronger connection for guidance and clarity around important life situations or choices.
  • Past lives that directly impact any current challenges, karmic debt & soul lessons
  • Friendships, romantic partnerships & soulmates
  • Pretty much anything EXCEPT medical or health outcomes. However, we are able to explore the source of health issues by looking at any karmic debt, soul lessons, and soul contracts.

How long is an Akashic Record Reading?

An Akashic Record Reading typically lasts 60-90 minutes.

​This allows us to explore the map of your soul and gives you the opportunity to ask questions to get clarity.

How is an Akashic Record reading different than a Spirit Guide/Mediumship reading?

During a Spiritual Mediumship Reading, I connect directly to a spirit and become their translator.

I am the go-between, delivering messages from Spirit Guides, Guardians, Angels, and family & friends that have passed to the other side.

​An Akashic Record Reading is different.

If you think of the Akashic Records as cloud storage for the Universe, also think of me running a query on any question you have, connecting to information in your Soul Blueprint and your Soul Contracts.

​I then answer questions using mediumship, but when we switch directions, I return to querying the Akashic Records.

Think of the Akashic Records as cloud storage for the Universe.

What is a Soul Blueprint?

Your blueprint was created by your Higher-Self to help you stay aligned with your lessons, karma, relationships, and soul goals.

Our Soul Blueprint is the plan & map of our human life.

In order to carry out this plan, we create Soul Contracts with others (soulmates, family, etc.), and to keep us focused on the goals of our blueprint, we enlist the help of Advisors & Spirit Guides.

​All of this can be explored in an Akashic Record Reading.

Is the information in the Akashic Records pre-determined?

Pre-planned, but not pre-determined.

​We all have free will, and because of that, our records are written in every moment, constantly shifting to keep us pointed toward our highest potential.

Can you open the record of my partner/child/family member/boss, friend, etc.?

Not without their permission.

But I can explore the soul contract between the two of you for clarity on the circumstances of your connection.

​For example, you can ask about the purpose of your relationship with a particular friend, but not about that friend’s life purpose or life circumstances and relationships unless they directly impact your soul blueprint.

Can you read the Akashic Record of my business?


I open the record of your business and compare it with your personal record to see where you have the biggest opportunity for success, abundance, prosperity, challenge, potential, etc.

Honestly, the possibilities are endless and it’s one of my favorite readings to give. I don’t understand why it’s not more commonly booked!

​Some good questions to ask:

  • Am I subconsciously blocking my own success?
  • How can I best move forward in the work I love to do?
  • Am I aligned with the work I do?
  • How can I best support my business and the clients/customers I am most aligned with?

Why is it important to ask questions during an Akashic Reading?

Akashic readings are Q&A based, not cold readings.

The energy of the record “builds” based on our emotions and clarifying questions.

The more we talk about a situation, issue, circumstance, or relationship, the more powerful the energetic frequency becomes and the easier it is to access the information contained in a record.

To make a clear connection I ask you to talk about how you FEEL about whatever issue you are seeking clarity on.

This isn’t to fish for information, it’s to create the strongest link possible between myself and the person I’m reading.

I then use my psychic abilities to see images and information that comes to me from the records.

At the same time, I’m using my empathic abilities to hear, sense, and feel.

​I’m also connecting to your Guides as a Medium and a Channel.

Ok but, can’t you just tell me what I need to know?

When I ask my client if they have any questions, I sometimes get the response: "I'm just open to anything my Guides want me to know".

But that won’t work because your guides want you to know EVERYTHING and it’s simply not possible in the time allotted.

So, to help you get clarity around your most challenging relationships, situations, or worries, we need a specific question to focus on.

The simple answer is that your question is your expression of intent, so come prepared with at least 3 questions!

​The best types start with are why, how, or what (any question that can be expanded on) that give you a much deeper answer than simple yes or no questions.

What questions can I NOT ask?

You can ask any question you want, but my personal policy prohibits questions about health or illness.

I have noticed over the years that questions phrased in a way that takes away your free will or your ability to make choices to determine your path forward, will not produce anything back from the records in the form of “data."

But your Guides will definitely tell me to rephrase the question.

​For example, questions that start with:

  • When will I…
  • How will I…
  • What will happen if…?
  • Who will I…

Each of these questions asks for an outcome that will not be determined by your own choices and actions, so actual answers to these types of questions simply will not come through the Akashic Records.

Do you see past lives in an Akashic Reading?

Yes, but asking a broad question like, “Tell me about my past lives,” won’t get you much because past life information comes forward to help us clarify and resolve current specific challenges and relationships.

Past life specifics (like who you were in a past life or what you did in that life) are not as important as the information that comes from accessing those lifetimes.

What really helps you understand your current life challenges is understanding your KARMA.

​With insight into your karmic debts, lessons, and relationship patterns, you come to understand what is STILL manifesting in this life as a result of experiences in your previous lifetimes.

With insight into your karmic debts, lessons, and relationship patterns, you come to understand what is STILL manifesting in this life as a result of experiences in your previous lifetimes.

You may have unfinished business or lessons the soul has yet to learn.

​You may also experience challenges as triggers, simply to remind your soul of lessons you mastered in previous lifetimes that are waiting to be activated in this lifetime!

When is the best time to have a reading?

  • When you need to clarify your life purpose
  • When you want to make a career change, but have no idea what or how
  • When you want to explore relationships or finances
  • When you are ready to release limiting beliefs, habits, or relationship
  • In times of transition (birthday, divorce, death, move, job loss, etc.)
  • When you feel stuck in the present and fearful about the future
  • When there is something specific you need clarity and guidance on, but just can’t figure out on your own

What is included in an Akashic Reading?

Akashic Soul Blueprint Readings now include Numerology, Astrology, and Human Design to give you a 360 view of your soul’s plan:

  • Numerology is the WHAT (what is my purpose, what are my skills, interests, and character traits?). It gives you a higher-level understanding of your life path and the skills and abilities you bring to the world to master and use, in service to others.
  • Astrology is the WHY (why am I learning this particular lesson?). Astrology gives you a more detailed view of the events and experiences that help you stay aligned with your soul's purpose and the wounds you are meant to heal. It’s your personal algorithm in the stars.
  • Human Design is the HOW (how do I use my specific energetic design to move through life more easily?). Human Design gives you the knowledge to more easily make decisions, take inspired action and manifest.

And it’s all interpreted in The Akashic Records. I don’t read your Astrology or Human Design charts in detail, I read them as part of your Akashic Soul Blueprint, as a complete chart.

The marriage of Numerology, Astrology, and Human Design within the Akashic Records, adds a richness of detail and personality that just can’t be found in any one modality alone.

​I love how these star-based divination systems collaborate to create the beautiful goals for your soul and fully support your human experience.

What can I expect after a reading?

Accessing your Akashic Record helps you re-align with your original soul plan and helps you release any feelings of stuckness, life dissatisfaction, and uncertainty so empowerment can emerge.

After a reading, you could experience a need to absorb the information for a few days before acting on anything that came from our session.

You may also feel incredibly inspired to take immediate action.

​As with any intuitive session, take time after to:

  • Hydrate, meditate, journal, connect to your body, get energy work, or a massage.
  • Rest, go inward, and connect to your Higher Self and your physical body to integrate the messages from your reading with your conscious awareness.
  • Connect to your Spirit Guides with tarot, oracle, and any other divination tools you enjoy.
  • Spend time setting intentions and visualizing the outcomes you most want to experience.

How can I book an Akashic Reading with you?

If you cannot find clarity or get to the root of an issue, the Akashic Records can answer your most persistent questions and challenges.

It’s a wonderful first step to the transformation of your path forward.
