Taking Classes, Personal Quests, and Kryon


Timeless Wisdom for Contemporary Questions:

Questions and Answers About the Book “How To Read the Akashic Records”

Question:
I’m thinking about going to one of your certification classes and I’m wondering what I might expect to get from the class that I won’t get from having read the book?

Linda:
One of the things you will get is a certificate and become a certified practitioner. Although the book and cd set are a great way to learn, I cannot certify your training. However, if you come to a live class, you will be a certified practitioner. In some ways, getting the certificate can be very important, because it signifies that you have taken a significant step in your own initiation. You have made a greater commitment. In response to your commitment, I show up, and I teach you.
Also, when we work live, I can help you. If there are some areas where you struggle, I can actually help you with that if we are together in person. The energy of a group is always fabulous, because the group is working together and headed in the same direction, so it makes it easier to go deeper, faster.

It’s the difference between digging a hole on your own and digging a hole with a group. You can dig the hole on your own, and do a great job. We have a pond in our backyard, and my partner was digging the hole and doing a fine job. And then a friend came over, and soon everybody was working together, and the hole was done in no time. The hole was going to get done one way or another, and it was going to be a perfect hole. However, with group participation, it is kind of like it eases obstructions, interferences, and it makes the journey a little easier.

I have been working in the Records since 1994 and teaching since 1996. When I see you in person, I can see what will help you, and how to enable you to go deeper. I know you are committed to this; you are not committed to skating on the surface. People come to this work because of their internal calling. This is the urging of the soul. It is a soul-level prompting, and you are brought to this work.

This is profound work, and I know if you are called to this work, you are called to it because of your commitment to depth, your commitment to the truth, your commitment to exploration and discovery. I also really believe that there are parts of our inner work that we can only do ourselves. We have to walk down our own paths. And I think it comes with spiritual maturity when you realize, I can get there, I can dig to China, and if I go on my own, it will take 200 to 300 years. But if I get some help, it may only take me two days. To really recognize when it is appropriate to get help on the path, and what kind of help do I really need? Assistance, training, teaching, those may be better words than help, but we really want to look at that.

Follow up:
Should I also sign up for the Ancestral Clearing Class after the certification?

Linda:
Usually, the Practitioner’s Certification is Friday night and Saturday. And then Sunday there is a one-day class in clearing unwanted ancestral patterns. The idea is that we will move from technique into the application. You will leave with some tools. You will leave knowing what protocols are effective within the Records. Clearing unwanted ancestral issues is so natural in the Records, because in the Records, there is no time. There is only now. You cross that line between an ordinary state of consciousness and a non-ordinary state of consciousness, and time just collapses. It is all nowness, and we get to work with the present moment in the Records.

The present moment really is the point of power, and that is where we begin our work in the Records. We can work with how to be in right relationship energetically, with our lineage, with our family of origin, and make the shift so that we can enjoy the benefits, the advantages of any line through which we have come. No line is all good or all bad. That is an old idea. Our work as seekers and practitioners of the Light, our work is to discover the Light in the dark places, and to live from there. It’s one of my favorite types of work. I think you will love it.

Question:
I have had some readings done, and they all have said pretty much the same thing. And when I’ve asked about location – and I think you’ve pretty much answered my question -- when I asked, Am I where I need to be? What about some other locations? Most of the suggestions were like lateral moves. They gave me other names, but they were all about the same. They were all like lateral moves.


As much as I have done in my life, I think that it has all led up to something that I am not doing yet. I am real clear about that. What does that look like? I have no idea. I am currently serving as an assistant minister. I am an ordained pastor, and yet I know that there is still something that I need to be doing with what I already have been doing, something new, something different, and I’m getting to the point now where I really want to know, and I don’t like staying in the question. I’ve tried releasing it and releasing it, but it is not coming to me, and I’m ready. Give me patience, now! That kind of thing.

Linda:
Of course! Here is what I want to offer. It’s a very interesting situation that you are in, because as you speak, it is really very clear you are on the path. It is always alive, and there is always a next step, and there is always the next question, and really how beautiful that is. I understand that from where you sit this is really annoying and uncomfortable, but it really says so much about the aliveness of the path. It’s not like we get on the path and that’s it, we go to sleep. I think that is really quite beautiful.

As you speak, it occurs me that it may well be that what is next for you has not existed yet. Do you see? Because you are not here to do something that was done 100 years ago, or 50 years ago, or even 20 years ago. You are here to do a new thing, and it may be that new thing is just being revealed now. Do you see? This also illustrates another really wonderful understanding: that our personal journey is always in alignment with the universal journey, which I think is quite beautiful.

Your personal quest is bringing you right up to the 2012 time. We are in the New Age, but dimensionally, we are on the verge of a revolution. It is natural for you to have this question, this sense that ‘I think there is something more.’

That is fascinating. It may be really helpful to look and see if the Records are right for you, are good for you. Have you read my book?

It is experiential reading, so that if you read it, it is very activating, and it could raise some questions, and then we can talk. I think that would be a next good step to take.

Question:
I have the opportunity to study with Kryon. He talks a lot about mining the Akash. He said that he was a former engineer and couldn’t talk in front of people. Yet, being a channel for Kryon, he needed that skill and he felt woefully deficient. So he talked about mining the Akash, and going in and asking for guidance from a prior lifetime. Because he said that we have all been pretty much everywhere already, we can call up that experience from the Akashic Record to give ourselves the skill.

Linda:
What a great point that you have raised here. This is really good. In my book, in the section on past lives, there are protocols, and it is on the CD set too.

There are protocols, yet you can go into the Records and ask for another lifetime, another expression of yourself in space and time. Ask for another lifetime where you had mastery of whatever skill you need, whether it is public speaking, or any number of things. You can go in and you can ask. There are a few different ways that it can work. What is available is that we have a conscious connection and transmission of those gifts, talents, and abilities that we have carried within ourselves through time. It is fabulous, and very supportive.

From a Records point of view, this is not that big of a problem. In an ordinary state of consciousness, you have a big problem here. But from a Records point of view, it is in the grid, it is in the energy. The soul is like a Light. The energy field around us, the pattern, is a Light grid. And the Light grid carries potential. If in a lifetime you have been a senator, then the experience of a senator, and everything that goes with that – there can be good things, and there can be difficult things – everything is in your field. We are working through time to be aware of the wholeness of ourselves, the goodness of ourselves, and to consciously integrate, to the best of our ability, to integrate these different dimensions of ourselves. To know ourselves in the fullness. We are moving from glory to glory to glory, into greater knowing and greater knowing, and greater knowing, and this can be facilitated through our work in the Records.

Follow-up:
Then I can call on my past experience of reading the Akashic Records?

Linda:
No, no, no, no. I would not do that, and I will tell you why. You always want to work in the present moment, especially when you are making a dimensional shift in consciousness. I want to be clear that I am standing here today in Forest Park, Illinois. This is about being conscious and responsible. For the shift itself, you do not need to call upon another time and place where you had mastery of the Records, because where you want to make the shift from ordinary to non-ordinary, or from ordinary to extraordinary, is NOW. And that is very present tense, and it actually is – you want to be as deliberate and conscious and grounded about changing states of consciousness as you can. It will give you more authority in the process.

This is a complicated question, because we are talking about dimensional states, and– in order to maintain your responsibility, you want to keep that in the present. In this moment, I am going to be in this consciousness, and in this moment, I am shifting into another, and I want that pathway to be clear, deliberate, responsible, so that I can get into another state, and I want to be able to get back. People change state all of the time. But we are talking about being responsible, because the way to have authority over this is to be willing to take the responsibility.

The other thing to know is that your expertise in your relationship with the Akasha and the Akashic Record is something that is ongoing. This is your very own soul that we are talking about, and you are always in relationship with your soul. What we are working with is our level of awareness of that relationship. And that is also very much grounded in the present.
Follow-up:
Well, I will have to pray with the others for some patience also then.

Linda:
This patience thing--what is all that about? What is very challenging about patience right now is that we are in a time of universal urgency. You can feel it. We all know that our relationship with time has changed. There is an urgency. It is very tricky, I think, to be disciplined and sequential in our actions, while we experience the urgency. Urgency is your friend. Urgency will keep you going, but it can only be relieved incrementally with small steps. I know it’s hard. I think this is like my big life lesson, and the older I get, the worse it gets.

Self Healing, Dreams, and Records Protocol

Timeless Wisdom for Contemporary Questions:
Questions and Answers About the Book “How To Read the Akashic Records”




Question:
I think I was drawn to the book because there are things that my soul wants me to know that I have up to this point not wanted to know and deal with. I’ve done a lot of writing about healing yourself. A psychic once told me, “You know, you’re a wounded healer.” And that’s not what I wanted to be. I just wanted to write. I think this is my soul’s way of easing me into this work that I’ve done many lifetimes, and it’s my soul’s way of telling me what I need to know.

Linda:
Tell me, as you’re working with the book, how is it informing you? How do you see it making a difference? As a writer, you are very sensitive, and it’s very challenging to be exposed or revealed in this way. How is this supporting you?

Follow-up:
I have twice come in contact, usually through meditation, with an individual--someone who’s been with me. I know him and I recognize him. The first time I told him I’m not ready. The second time I was in meditation, and this individual is leaning up against a bookshelf in a huge library, and he smiled at me and winked at me. I realize this is easing me into this. I’ve had past life regression, and I didn’t want that, I didn’t want the responsibility, and I just wanted to live my life. The book is allowing me--it’s giving me the courage to go into it.

Linda:
That’s great. There is a Divine reason, there is a higher reason for this.

Follow-up:
Very much so. That’s why I have not gone into the Records yet. I know once I access those Records, there’s no turning back!

Linda: (Laughing.)
I have to tell you something honey, it’s already too late!

Follow-up:
This is very sacred, and I already know the sacredness of this. In this life it’s just something that I ran from.

Linda:
It’s time. It’s time.

Question:
I am similar to [the first person who spoke], I feel like it’s my soul’s calling, it’s time. I have tried lots of different ways – or my soul has tried to contact me. At night, I’m a huge dreamer, probably for the last four years, -- when it started about four years ago, I asked a question and went to sleep, and my soul said, “She’s finally asking a question!” It’s really hard for me to understand what they’re saying. I’ve been searching for a way when I’m awake to have access to the information in a form that I can understand.


When I read the book – I’ve heard of the Akashic Records before, but I hadn’t gone back, because I don’t want an intermediary, I know I can do this myself. When I found the book, I thought, “This is great, I can do this.” My block is still there, I still feel like I am in the Records, but the flow is not there yet. I don’t get words or information. I think I may be getting something, but my mind is telling me I’m not.

Linda:
This is one of the biggest challenges for all of us. We are always in the question, Is this real? Is this valid? What are the results of this? This will keep us on track. You know, it’s one of those simple laws of energy: whatever you focus on is what will expand or get stronger.

So in the collective, we are coming out of really 25 years of focusing on our blockages. First of all, they’re fascinating, and we thought that was the way to get rid of them, to focus on them to examine them, but the blockages are still there.

So what we want to do now – you don’t want to pretend it’s not there. All blockages are really rooted in fear. Take the attention – remember we want to focus on what we want more of. What we want is flow, freedom, clarity. And what will always dislodge the blockage is a sense of safety. So you want to be praying about “How can I experience more safety?” Have that be your question instead of “How do I move the blockage?“ We love our blockages, because they’ve really saved us from God knows what. Be in the question of – be in your prayers and be in your Records and before you go to bed, ask “How can I be in the experience of safety?” “How can I experience the security of Life?” “How do I get there?”

That’s one piece of this puzzle. The other is this: In your work, it’s more helpful to be looking at the information that you’re getting, instead of looking at how you’re getting the answer to the question. The Records are fascinating. They are not about phenomena. A lot of people have interesting experiences with the energy. Some people see or hear things, some may get a tap on the shoulder. A lot of people do brilliant work who aren’t seeing a dang thing! Don’t get too hung up on that.

Focus on “What am I walking away with?” “What kind of results is this experience creating within me?” “Am I experiencing peace, harmony?” “Am I upset?”

This really takes practice. There are no short-cuts. The more you work in the Records, even if it is 15 minutes at a time, what are you getting? What is my feeling about who I am in my life and my challenges as I walk away from the Records? Who am I in my life today as a result of being in the Records?

Many people who have these--like dreamtime shamans--many people will have this strong dreamtime access. When they work in the Records during the day, it’s like the Records get under the dream state. Don’t open the Records and go to sleep. That won’t be helpful. You don’t want to be in two places at once. Be one place at a time, and know where you are. But it can actually power-up your dream state work.

Question:
Can you open your records and go to work?

Linda:
No, open the Records before you go to work and ask for guidance for your work day and close the Records when you have received the guidance. How can I be a better whatever? How can I improve the quality of my service through my work? You don’t want to open your Records and go drive a bus. That’s stupid! The idea is these are different states of awareness, and it’s not helpful to either one. When you’re in a spiritual state, you want to be there, and you don’t want to be distracted by checking groceries or performing surgery. You want to be fully using your human faculties and you want to do your best work.

Explore the issues of your work day in the Records, but not while you’re working.

Follow-up:
I want to know how to use it in the moment? How can I take care of my patients on the physical level, the mental level, the spiritual level.

Linda:
At work, you want to be an Olympic athlete. You have to be very grounded to be an efficient transmitter. I go in the morning and I open my Records, and I’m like, “Show me what I can do today to help these people. Help me to be the best transmitter of light and love.” Say, “I am at your service, help me to be who you have meant me to be.” You may get some insights; you may not get anything. You close your Records, and then you go to work.

The Akashic Records want us to be fully developed as human beings. When you are with a patient, cleaning a wound, giving them medicine, this is what incarnation is about--that the Divine energy moves through the human beings that we are. It’s a discipline that you want to work on. It’s really a spiritual practice so that you grow into the ability to transmit more Light incrementally. I think that’s much more efficient, because when you’re in that dimension of the Records, it softens the edge of your mental body. If you’re working with anything from electricity to another human being, you want your mental body to be clear and sharp. The Earth plane is pretty dense out here. You want to move in and out of state on this, and I know you will get better results.

Follow-up:
So that means I shouldn’t freak out if I ask those questions before going to work, and I don’t get anything?

Linda:
Right. I go into the records and I ask 35 questions, and sometimes what happens is that it is not useful for me to have all that information. Remember the Records are energy first, information second. Turns out that when I’m at my niece‘s birthday party, while I’m there, I receive what I need. I’m a focal point for receptivity, and I can receive the guidance that I need on the spot. There I am at the party, and I’m very clear. Oh, this is really how to conduct myself. This is how I can help, as opposed to being at the party with my Records open and being a little daffy. It’s kind of like smoking a joint or being high. Maybe it’s great fun, but it’s not the best way to get clarity.

Getting Stuck, Ascension, and St. Germain


Timeless Wisdom for Contemporary Questions:

Questions and Answers About the Book “How To Read the Akashic Records”




Question:
I’ve been trying to work out something on a healing path that seems like it’s been going on for a while, but I have this feeling that I have hidden my true and authentic self in another dimension for safety, because it didn’t feel safe to incarnate it in this dimension. I do a lot of kinesiology work. I want to know if the Record can assist me in reintegrating this part that I’ve hidden for safety. I can feel when I tune into who I am and what I want, I can’t find it. It’s like I’ve cleared the false self and illusion, and what I’m left with is I’m not there -- I’m lost in another dimension. I guess I’ve done so much work on my own, but I’m stuck, I need to do this before I can go forward.

Linda:
Let me tell you how I understand that. From a Records point of view, you are whole and complete, you are intact, but your awareness of that in some areas is almost like you turned off the light. So that’s how we would understand that fragmentation of the self from a Records point of view, and one of the ways the Records could be very supportive--it’s a spiritual resource, and the more there is a fundamental sense of spiritual safety-- spiritual safety always precedes emotional healing. Working with the Records would be fabulous for this, because you move into a dimension that is safety, that is sanctuary, and you would be growing into that and you could work in the Records to expand and open up your awareness of yourself in all your dimensions, but in a very safe way.

When there’s a blockage -- blockages and stuckness – it is just fear. But the antidote is to create an environment within the Self that is safe, an environment of sanctuary where there is no judgment, because dimensionally, the trait of the Record is a space of unconditional love. It is not smarmy, it’s not skinny, it’s rich, it’s real, it’s expansive, it’s inclusive of the whole Self. And in that space, it’s easier to let go of fear. That’s directionally where you can go. You’ve been on the path for a while, and you understand that in the healing process, the ability to grow into the new space is actually available in the Records.

Absolutely, this is one of the wonderful ways to use the Records. This is consciousness development. This does require that we address and deal with our emotional wounds and distress. That’s part of it; your emotional body has to be intact –the spiritual and the emotional work in tandem. The greater the spiritual reliance, the easier it is to heal emotionally. The stronger the emotional body, the more healed, resolved, the more peaceful we are in the emotional dimension, the more Light we can handle. The territory just opens wide, it is pretty exciting.

Question:
My question is, what is changeable and what is not in this particular journey? Can the style of it be tweaked a little?

Linda:
That’s interesting. What changes? What changes in the journey is our awareness, in that it expands and increases. With the increased awareness, there is an expansion in our responsibility. With responsibility comes privileges and choices. There are many lifetimes where the issue is that we’re growing into responsible choice-making. There are whole lifetimes where we are working with that--with the fact that we do have choice. Our choices make a big difference in where we are going to go and what is going to happen. The stories can change.

The finish line is basically the same, and at some point every one of us will come to know who we are. We will know the truth about ourselves and about others, and we will live from that place. The “how we do it” is definitely changeable. Is there something specific that you have in mind that you want to change?

Follow-up:
I want to see if I can, regarding the Ascension, where I can be in terms of where I would be with my sister. I don’t want to be going and leave her alone.

Linda:
What I do know is that how we get somewhere – if you’re interested in Ascension and that process, and you are consciously working on that, what can happen is that we have a lot to say about the rate at which we can grow. We can accelerate the process. The idea of the Records is not a resource through which we will control our fate. This is not a control device. It is a resource that can enable us to move into a profound state of peace and acceptance, not resignation, that will enable us to be aware of our own goodness and the goodness of others, no matter what the circumstances. Through a relationship with the Records, it is easier to wear the world like a loose garment, so that at some level of circumstances, people, places, and things will no longer bother us. That is much more the purpose of the use of the Records as opposed to making changes.

We can make changes in ourselves, but we are not going to change the tides, the orbits of planets -- a lot of things we are not going to change. They don’t have to be changed, they are fine. Understand that this is a resource for being in a state of detachment with love, and in a state of respect and honor for ourselves and others and life itself. Whatever is happening in the world, we will be fine. It is a time of tremendous spiritual revolution, and our work is really the karmic imperative of our time: to become aware of ourselves as souls, and to become aware of our truth within the divine reality, and to live from that.

Question:
In your book you refer to the Masters, one group of individuals. When I think of Masters I think of St. Germaine. How do the Masters fit in to the Records?

Linda:
This is a great point. In the Records, we work with the Masters, but there are other systems, and other ways of identifying Masters. So within another system, St. Germaine has a personality, and is identifiable. It’s a different system though.

What is distinct about the Records is that the masters, teachers, and loved ones do not present with personalities. Within the Record, we are dealing with energy first, information second, and personality is at the bottom of the heap. It’s not important. It’s a different system. I know it can be confusing if you are very well-trained in another system. The angle on this is a little different, and the purpose is a little different. It’s not about personalities.

Follow-up:
Is it possible for St. Germaine to see a part of my Record?

Linda:
Absolutely, but within the Record, the Masters do not come forward – the Masters do not do the reading. They don’t come forward and say, “Hi, I’m St. Germaine, I’m going to help you.” You may recognize the energy of St. Germaine.

Jesus is the teacher for many people working with the issue of unconditional love, That is the work of Jesus. He’s the teacher for probably half of the world – the Western world, certainly. The energy of Jesus will be in the Record, but the personality of Jesus will not come forward, because it’s not about the personality, it’s about the energy and the information, the energy, and the guidance.
