Nimue - Yes, I wanted to give you some historical background about the Records and who has used them in a way that might also create more questions for everyone. I mentioned the whole Mayan prophecy/2012 issue because some people are afraid of the end of the Mayan calendar, like it's the end of the world. That's not what the Records show, just like it didn't show that Y2K was going to be an issue - but people hear what they want to hear. And there are any number of people (tabloids, Hollywood) that want to cash in on the fear perspective.
If we're going to be appropriately in service, then helping people to release their fear, to release any limiting core beliefs, to stop negating their own feelings/experience/intuition, to synchronize their thoughts, feelings, words and actions, is extremely important. When we're told the truth, something resonates deep within us. When we're shown how being authentically ourselves helps us to live our truth
, then we start moving into higher states of love and consciousness because we then have enough courage
to be ourselves. Then instead of feeling like we're the butt of the joke of life, we start discovering life as a string of jokes (i.e. misunderstandings, where we take things personally, where we give our power away, etc) that we can explore with curiosity and embrace with laughter.
You might want to look through the thread to see if you find any answers or if it creates more questions. Dreams, intuition, telepathy - can all be less conscious ways to access the Records! We access the Records by going into the pre-conscious state, right as we're going to sleep/waking up. Leonardo da Vinci, who was also accessing his future lifetimes in the Records, and then wrote/sketched what he saw, said that he did more work in his sleep than when he was awake. A ouija board can be like automatic writing, some use it more as a way to get information from our spirit guides.
Einstein said "Imagination is more important than knowledge". Using your imagination in techniques like visualizations can be really helpful as a diving board into deeper intuitive experiences like the Akashic Records. And most students have a point where they feel they're imagining answers, which if they keep practicing will turn into a more grounded wisdom where their doubt subsides. The logical mind will want to rebel, to discount our intuitive experiences. The goal is to stay so focused on the present moment, that we access a greater wisdom that is beyond our mind.
I trust that you don't need pills either...maybe some Flintstone vitamins or Gummi Bear vitamins?
