This is often the first question I hear right after I answer the question about what I do. It is always astounding to realize that we know so little about what happens to the soul outside of a single, current lifetime – particularly when we realize that concepts like the Akashic Record, the journey of souls, reincarnation and where we are and what we do as souls when we are not in a body are all topics and concepts that have been written about, explored, studied, researched and written about since, well, time immemorial. In fact, a lot of what we know about the Akashic Record is referenced in ancient scriptures of various religious texts, including the Christian biblical scriptures! That said, we most definitely do not learn about this in church. But once upon a time, before so many things were rewritten, revised, or struck from the scriptures, we may have learned this ancient knowledge as a way to healing and self-realization.
The word Akasha means primordial substance. It is into this substance that every thought, deed, emotion and experience is recorded for every soul that has ever been formed out of the Creative Source Energy that is known by many names and forms and most often called God. A record exists for every soul and retains the information of every lifetime that soul has lived, and every experience of every lifetime. That’s right – EVERY experience of every lifetime is recorded. And not only the experiences, but also the thoughts, words and emotions! This alone makes a person sit up and take notice of their thoughts and words. This record is called by different names in different traditions and texts – The Book of Life is one of those names mentioned in many religious texts.
So what is the value of this Book or Record? Its value is the knowledge of your past choices and future options. The fundamental tenet of this teaching is that we are ALWAYS at choice. We may not choose every situation or circumstance presented to us in our lives, but we ALWAYS choose how we respond or react to it. In every lifetime, a person is at a zillion choice points every day. How we respond to those choices, and whether we make choices that support our soul purpose and use our gifts or whether we hide our light and try to fit in or whether we use our gifts to hurt and destroy rather than to support and express unconditional love – all of this goes into the record. And when we travel to the other side of the veil at death, the accounting of these experiences informs our next experience. We review our life and recognize, with help from our wiser higher self and our guides and teachers, that we didn’t always make good choices and then we look forward to another opportunity to return to Earth and try again. The process of soul development is a constant effort and souls may do it at their own pace – sometimes excruciatingly slowly, as in the case of one of the souls Dr. Michael Newton met in his research of life between lives. He wrote about this case in his book, Journey of Souls. This particular soul came to Earth more than 1000 times to learn the lessons of jealousy, making bad choices every single lifetime – until he finally didn’t. He finally got it! He finally learned the lesson and moved on! A thousand lifetimes spent on a single lesson! That is highly unusual, but it is not at all unusual to spend multiple lifetimes on a single lesson. And it is just as possible to master more than one lesson in a single lifetime when one is learning from mistakes and making better choices consistently.
What do I mean by good choices? Choices that are in alignment with your authentic soul essence – with who and what you came here to be. We all know someone who is doing that if we think about it. It’s that person who is unconditionally loving and kind, clear and focused, seems really happy doing exactly what he or she is most suited to doing, and has a strong faith or connection through consistent spiritual practice. When I lived in a French-speaking country that person was described as someone who is “bien dans sa peau” or “well in his skin,” That’s a way of saying someone who is comfortable with who he is and happy with his life. I mean REALLY happy, regardless of the circumstances. A person who would be just as happy to be poor as to be rich, just as happy no matter where they live. A person who is so comfortable with himself or herself and confident and at ease with life that whatever comes their way, they somehow are never fazed and just live in profound acceptance and authentic joy. Achieving this state is high spiritual work and when one does, that level of mastery is evident.
For most of us, there is some stuff preventing us from achieving that level of happiness. Some of that stuff is from the current lifetime – family dynamics, generational trauma and difficult or traumatic life experiences may have left emotional and mental scars that are stored in our energy field and cause us to close our heart or protect ourselves from further pain or suffering. But that closing off of our heart blocks our energy and decreases the flow of good into our lives! And if we are hurt and see ourselves as victims, we forget that we co-create our lives and it is hard to see how our choices have led to creating our current misery. It may even be too hard to hear that we might have had some role in creating our misery, and that only makes it harder to progress beyond that point of pain to find the path to more happiness.
And, besides the pain of their current life experience or family trauma, many people are also carrying some residue from past life experiences in their energy field. Stuff they were unable to release in the clearing that occurs in between lifetimes, or were unable to resolve and needed to come back to Earth to experience again and layer more understanding onto the previous unresolved experience. I recently had a client who had experienced the same relationship with the same soul for more than 200 lifetimes. She had unresolved anxiety all of her life and could not figure out the root cause from anything that happened in this lifetime. There were some contributing experiences in this lifetime, but even once resolved, the anxiety remained. The root cause was this relationship that she experienced over and over again for many, many lifetimes. And learning about this during her soul realignment was a revelation that allowed her to release the hold that relationship had on her and the resulting anxiety stored in her mental body. We are souls made of energy, living temporarily in a physical body.
When we can heal and release these blocks and restrictions from lifetimes of pain and hurt in human experiences and relationships, we can move closer to the self-realization that brings us to that state of authentic joy and unconditional love. What I know is true is that when a person experiences soul realignment, that person will know what this state of alignment feels like – clients have described it as calm, focused, freedom. What I witness is that clients just want to sit in that space of connection and feel that rare feeling of bliss for a long time and I love to sit in the bliss with them and see the joy reflected on their faces and feel the joyous energy of their clear and aligned state of being. After the session, they are free again to make choices that lead to more of this joy, or to choose to resume their past patterns and behaviors that lead to escape and hiding their true nature and living in pain and suffering. We are always at choice. Soul realignment is a way of remembering who we are and realizing that we have a choice. It is a powerful transformational process. I have seen it change many lives on a profound level. And I have seen someone I dearly love experience this beautiful process and then go right back to escaping into the distractions of the human experience and not choose to stay in alignment. It is my joy and honor to guide every person who comes to me through this beautiful process of realignment and to celebrate with you the magnificence of your soul as it is revealed to us. For most people, one glimpse into their true soul nature is enough. Seeing the extent of your power and the glory of that soul connection to Source Energy is profoundly healing and awakens the possibilities that have been dormant up to now. Giving yourself or a loved one a soul realignment session is one of the greatest gifts you can give. Wouldn’t you want everyone you love to see their true potential and beauty. I gave my own son a soul realignment and it was amazing to witness the changes in his life as he moved more confidently in the world with his focus more honed and using and trusting his innate gifts. There is nothing else I have given him in his whole life that has been more empowering than this.

Next month, I will be writing about soul purpose and some of the things I have learned about how we continue to work on soul development between lives. If you aren’t familiar with Dr. Michael Newton’s research on this topic, I highly recommend his books, Journey of Souls and Destiny of Souls as well as the work of Dr. Brian Weiss who wrote many books on his clients who experienced past life memories during therapy sessions. Both of these doctors are trained and experienced psychologists who applied a scientific research methodology to the data they collected in many recorded sessions over the course of their long careers and built an evidence base that helps us understand more about how our souls develop and experience life both in the physical realm of Earth and the etheric realm beyond the veil.
Thank you for joining me and sharing this with others. I look forward to meeting you in a session very soon!
