Language is a funny thing.  And English a laugh riot.  Or as the saying goes “English doesn’t borrow from other languages.  English follows other languages down dark alleys, knocks them over, and goes through their pockets for loose grammar.”  So when I and others talk about the Akashics, like everyone else who uses language, we pick the words and phrases that best get our point across most quickly and succinctly.  Which means we use words that pull from our listener concepts that they are familiar with and experiences that they have had.  But what many times doesn’t come across is that a lot of this talk is simile and metaphor.

Let me explain.  When people say they ‘see’ in the Akashics, they aren’t actually using eyes and getting visual stimulus they have to interpret such as we do with our physical eyes.  There are no eyelids to close that will block out what they are ‘seeing’.  They have pictures, stills or movies style, directly into their brain which the brain then interprets into meaning just as it would with images coming through the eyes.  Same with ‘hearing’.  No pictures, and pretty much no actual voice, but the language and meaning appears in the brain as if we had heard the conversation and we process it as such.  In our physical world we rely on our senses and they are a commonality among us, so much so that people without them are highly noticeable and considered disabled.  So it makes sense that we would use those terms to talk about experiences in the Akashics.  But the Akashics is not hear and we are not physical in the Akashics.  So the terms are really similes and shouldn’t be considered a 1:1 comparison.  There are many more ways to experience the Akashics than this and what you’re experiencing isn’t really sight or sound at all.

So too when talking about Soul Books.  It’s kinda like the Matrix.  “Do you believe that’s air your breathing?  In here?  Hmmm…”  Information is stored about a Soul.  As we are most familiar with book formats in this culture and because that format best suits the information being presented, the information appears as a book.  But it is not a book as we normally think a book should be.  It is a living symbol that changes and is created with every moment we live and every thought we hold and every action we take.  From the binding, to the material used to make the pages, to the writing, to the media presented within it, everything is symbolic.  Your soul book is not a ‘thing’ it is you, a part of your soul that remains in the Akashics when you come to be in a body.  Everything it shows you is you.

So the term book, is a loose translation, a metaphor for what it truly is, but it’s the best word we have to work with.  So too with ‘reading’ a Soul Book.  It’s more about experiencing it and being in conversation with it.  It responds to your requests and intent, and the material inside isn’t just words.  But even before you get there, you have to be able to ‘synch up’ with it.  You have to have the experience, the concentration, and the spiritual/physical/mental ‘muscles’ to be able to access it.  Most people, upon opening their soul books for the first time, if they haven’t prepped for it, just see beautiful but blazing light.  See what I just did there?  Explaining the experience just became like someone sitting in a library opening up their journal and finding a spotlight inside.  It’s not actually like that at all, but that’s the words we have to work with.

So set your expectations accordingly. Like smelling colors and hearing velvet your experience of the Akashics will be unique and working with your Soul Book will be an adventure for a lifetime.
