I have been asked about addressing the so-called Akashic Records, which is known to many in the New Age world. It sounds intriguing and mysterious, doesn’t it? To my surprise, it’s a lot more popular than I thought. There are numerous videos about it on YouTube, some having many views. Very popular New Age teachers such as Infinite Waters and Teal Swan have videos about it.
If you ever come across someone teaching the Akashic Records, it should raise red flags since such a person is definitely associated with New Age or occult. Let’s expose it for what it really is.
What is the Akashic Records?
Akasha is the Sanskrit word for “aether”, “sky”, or “atmosphere.” The Akashic Records, in the New Age and occultism is a supposed “compendium of pictorial records, or ‘memories,’ of all events, actions, thoughts, and feelings that have occurred since the beginning of time. They are said to be imprinted on Akasha, the astral light, which is described by spiritualists as a fluid ether existing beyond the range of human senses. The Akashic Records are reputedly accessible to certain select individuals—e.g., a spiritualist medium who conducts a séance.” Source
The medium Edgar Cayce (1877-1945), who supposedly read the records in a trance state, called it “The Book of Life” or “God’s Book of Remembrance” (both are mentioned in the Bible but Edgar distorted the Biblical meaning). The Akashic Records can be equated to the universe’s super-computer system. It is supposedly the central storehouse of all information for every individual who has ever lived upon the earth- a vast trove of information containing incredible wisdom and insight. These records contain our every thought, deed, word, feeling, and intent. It has been called a Google search for your soul.
Authors promoting it claims that it will unlock the secret universal knowledge and access the archive of the soul (what ever that means). One author claims, “The Akashic Records are a powerful spiritual tool intended to help you on your journey through life.”
Another author claimed, “Accessing the Akashic Records provides an opportunity to align with your soul and develop your own spiritual authority.” One Instagram post promoting it reads, “all humanity has the capacity to develop the ability to receive unlimited divine knowledge.”
History of the Akashic Records
H.P. Blatvatsky (1831–91), a Russian spiritualist and occultist, considered to be the mother of the New Age movement (I believe she was demon possessed to the toenails) introduced the sankrit term askasha to the language of Theosophy. Blavatsky had very little formal education, yet she wrote tomes with very dense language. It gives more credence to the idea it didn’t come from her but a supernatural source. Indeed, she claimed the content for her books were derived from spirit guides – it was channeled. Blavatsky argued that Satan – or Lucifer, or the Devil, as she often uses the names interchangeably brought mankind spiritual wisdom, and is ‘the spirit of Intellectual Enlightenment and Freedom of Thought’.
Henry Steel Olcott (1832-1907) who was also involved with Theosophy, also wrote about the Akasha. He was a student of spiritualism—a 19th-century movement based on the belief that the living can contact the dead—soon fell under the sway of Blatvatsky and became the president of Theosophy in 1875.
What is Theosophy? According to Britannica, it was an occult movement originating in the 19th century. The term theosophy, derived from the Greek theos (“god”) and sophia (“wisdom”), is generally understood to mean “divine wisdom.” In modern times, theosophical views have been held by Rosicrucians and by speculative Freemasons.
What other people helped popularize the Akasha? One was C. W. Leadbeater (1854-1934), an occult author, he wrote about the Akasha.
Another was the Austrian theosophist, and later founder of Anthroposophy, Rudolf Steiner used the Akashic Records concept mainly in a series of articles in his journal Lucifer-Gnosis (no joke, that was the name!).
Alice Bailey (1880-1949) wrote about the Akashic Records as well. She can be considered as one of the “prophetesses” of the New Age Movement, in fact she’s credited with having created the term “New Age.” She herself described the majority of her work as having been telepathically transmitted to her by a Master of Wisdom, or spirit entity called Djwal Khul (clearly a demon). Alice Bailey established The Lucis Trust which was formerly known as Lucifer Publishing Company in 1922 (again not joking!), and her organization has had wide influence within many European countries, and even the United Nations. Alice Bailey came up with a Ten Point Charter to eradicate Christianity so that New Age philosophies could become the one world religion.
Isn’t it interesting, everyone who propagated the idea of the Akashic Records were involved in the occult or New Age? As far as I know, there is not a single exception. This fact alone points to what is really the source behind the idea of the Akashic Records. If the roots are bad, then so is the whole tree.
How to access it and what happens?
One way to access the supposed Akashic Records is via eastern meditation, which again raises red flags. Eastern meditation has been exposed as a mechanism to open a person to demonization. One New Ager said one can access it by a sacred spoken prayer. But if it is not a prayer to the living God of the Bible then whom is it to? This to me seems like an invocation, even if the practitioner doesn’t think of it in such a way. Another way they access it is by New Age visualization. Several occultists acknowledge the importance of successful visualization for contacting the supposed astral realm where spirits dwell.
The following are even more red flags. According to one site, “those who access the records report that seekers may experience meeting guides, angels, and behind-the-scenes players…. Some say that accessing the records is a type of ‘channeling’ — others say they receive information in dreams.”
Another site reads “In the records, we are connecting with ‘masters’ (light beings like a council of elders), enlightened guides/spiritual teachers and deceased loved ones (ancestors). It is very healing and powerful. Past clients have claimed these readings can be life-changing.”
One New Ager said, “I was told by my guides in the records that my purpose in this life is to modernize the Akashic records, to make them accessible and easy. So I teach a free line activation, and anyone can do it at any time. It’s a breathwork and movement practice.”
Another site trying to sell the service of reading the Akashic Records reads:

Angels? Guides? Light beings? Deceased loved ones? Pinnacle? Channeling? If you didn’t catch on yet, these entities are nothing more than demons masquerading as such. If those entities are really angels of God why would they be associated with an occult practice? The Bible reads satan transforms into an angel (2 Cor. 11:4), those purported light beings are not really of the light. Those entities claiming to be guides are nothing but demons whose agenda is to essentially propagate this idea of Akashic Records for their nefarious purposes. Are those really deceased loved ones? How can they be when the Bible reads it is appointed man to die once and after this the judgment (Heb. 9:27)? Who is this Pinnacle? Likely a name of some evil spirit. Channeling is unequivocally demonic, it is essentially allowing demons or a demon to use a person’s body to get their message across.
One New Ager shares her experience while accessing the supposed Akashic Records:
When I open my Records, I feel pressure on the crown of my head, like information is funneling in at an overwhelming pace.
Sometimes you’ll hear voices, see images, or feel a deep sense of knowing. Other times, you might need to sit for a while before anything comes through. Everyone is different, and all people have unique intuitive gifts. If you know that you lean toward any of the five clairs of clairvoyance, there’s a good chance that’s how messages from the Records will come through for you.
Once you’ve gotten your bearings, you can start to ask your questions. Be patient — you might need to rephrase your question if the answer isn’t coming through. Try not to judge as information flows … sometimes, it really doesn’t make sense. Like, at all.
One time, I was asking what I needed to do to meet “my person.” Listen, I’m a Pisces Sun-Pisces Venus, I am almost always looking for love. Anyway, the Records shot back at me, “Start wearing flowers in your hair.”Source
What the woman experienced was not the Akashic Records but demons communicating to her information. Isn’t it interesting one uses occult methods to access it (supposedly)? The truth is there is no such thing as the Akashic Records, at least it is not mentioned anywhere in the Bible which is the standard for truth. The information people are receiving are directly from demons, but the enemy uses the Akashic Records as a facade. Demons operate behind, or in the guise of, a variety of New Age concepts such as “higher self,” Christ Consciousness, inner divinity, cosmic forces, expanded consciousness, the creative field, psychic energy, and so forth. The Akashic Records is just a ruse for people to open doors to satan’s kingdom. Sadly, it seems to me the aforementioned woman opened herself wide open for demonization.
The Bible condemns the Akashic Records
In Isaiah 8:19 it reads: “And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead?” The Bible reads God is a jealous God (Exodus 20:5), He would rather have people seek Him and the Bible for counsel instead of spirit guides or some non-existent metaphysical library.
Christian author Merrill Unger wrote:
…Spiritistic fortune-tellers and clairvoyants were subject to the death penalty in Israel (Leviticus 19:31; 20:6, 27). Anyone who used ‘divination’ or was a ‘soothsayer, or an augur [fortuneteller], or a sorcerer, or a [magic] charmer, or a medium, or a wizard [clairvoyant], or a necromancer [one who communicated with the spirit-world]’ was outlawed from the community of the Lord’s people (Deuteronomy 18:10-11). The same stringent prohibition runs throughout Scripture (1 Chronicles 10:13; Isaiah 8:19; 44:25; Jeremiah 29:8; Ezekiel 21:21; Micah 3:6-7; Zechariah 10:2). The New Testament takes the same firm stand (Acts 16:16-18; Galatians 5:20)(Demons in the World Today, 96)
The Bible warns about the snares of the devil (2 Tim. 2:26), and the Askashic Records is surely one of them. Why should anyone trust what these entities told people who were non-Christian and were involved in occult practices which the Bible strongly condemns? The Bible reads to test all things (1 Thess. 5:21). Satan is a liar and the father of lies and deceives the whole world (John 8:44; Revelation 12:8). Satan tempted Eve with knowledge if she ate the fruit (Gen. 3:1-6), and he continues to bait people with “divine” knowledge but via occult methods. I don’t have any doubt anyone who gets involved in this is susceptible to demonization.
If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you can receive Him into your heart and He can deliver you from darkness and sin and have your name written in His Book of Life.
If you are sincere, you can say this simple prayer to the Father (it doesn’t have to be word for word):
“God, I recognize that I have not lived my life for You up until now. I have been living for myself and that is wrong. Please forgive me of all of my sins just as I forgive others. I need You in my life; I want You in my life. I acknowledge the completed work of Your only begotten Son Jesus Christ in giving His life for me on the cross, I believe in my heart Jesus is Lord and was raised from the dead and I long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely available to me through this sacrifice. Come into my life now, Lord. Take up residence in my heart and be my king, my Lord, and my Savior. From this day forward, I will no longer be controlled by sin, or the desire to please myself, but I will follow You all the days of my life. Those days are in Your hands. I ask this in the Lord and GOD Jesus’ precious and holy name. Amen.”
