I have been working for 3 years in the XYZ company as a team leader. Where is my professional life headed?
7) Wait for a response
After you have asked your question aloud, it’s time for the universe to give you an answer. Therefore, be patient and wait. The answer may not come immediately so you can keep focusing on the question till then.
If even after waiting for 10 to 15 minutes you don’t get an answer then end the session. Many people can’t access the akashic record in the beginning. But after multiple attempts, they did get success.

10) Write down your experience
Sometimes the answer may not make sense to you when you are in the session. Therefore, it is advisable to write down what you saw or heard. Recount what was your experience and write it down in detail.
Forget about it for a day. The next day read what you have written. This will give you a fresh perspective on your experience. Things that were not apparent before may become clear later.
Akashic Field: A Place Beyond Time and Space
In the earlier sections, it has been already mentioned that the akashic field is beyond time and space. In this dimension of the universe, the rules of time and space do not apply. What is often represented as a plane or even dimension is sometimes referred to as a field. A field that was present from the beginning of time itself. This field is called the Akashic field.
The akashic field predates time. Ancient scholars believed that this field is the originator of our world. This means our world has emerged from the akashic field.
In a 2014 interview, Mr. Deepak Chopra revealed that cosmologists believe the universe is constantly created from the Akashic field. It happens from a phenomenon called eternal inflation. Cosmologists believe that this subtle sea of fluctuating field is responsible for the creation and sustenance of our world.
Find this interesting interview below:
The concepts of the akashic field will become clear to you if you compare it with the quantum mechanics of physics. According to sciencemag.org, physicists have done an experiment to know more about the nature of the photon. With the experiments done on space, it has been found that photons can behave both as a matter and a wave. It appears in these two different forms depending on how they tried to measure it.
From this experiment, it was concluded that reality too depends on how we perceive it. It is up to the people to choose how they see reality. From these data and experiments, the universe and its origins seem so mysterious. What physics now shows through quantum mechanics had already been mentioned in ancient cultures.
Ervin Laszlo on Akashic Field Theory
Ervin Laszlo is a science philosopher. He is a Hungarian pianist who is also a visiting faculty at the Graduate Institute Bethany. Ervin Laszlo is one of the founders of a secret group called General Evolutionary Research. The primary aim of this group was to learn about the evolution of the world and humanity.
Ervin Laszlo is one of those esteemed professors who believe that the knowledge of science and religion are not exclusive of each other. He is also a supporter of the Akashic field theory.
In 2004, Laszlo published a book named ‘Science and the Akashic Field: An Integral Theory of Everything.’ In this book, Laszlo pointed out that the universe emerges from the Akashic field. Further, he states that the Akashic field consists of the universe’s information.
In his book, Laszlo proposes that this field is the quantum vacuum (or point akashic field) from which information is conveyed to the universe. This is an intelligent field that carries the memory of the universe. This intelligent field is responsible for the creation and running of the atoms and galaxies.
The teachings of Ervin Laszlo also suggest that evolution and creation of complex organisms is not a chance occurrence. This intelligent field or the point akashic field has an integral role in giving it the present form.
Check out this insightful 2014 interview with Prof. Ervin Laszlo:
There are several mysteries hidden beneath the fabric of reality. Though the knowledge of the Akashic records has been present since ancient times, it is only now that we comprehend it.
The Akashic records hold divine information that can make people’s lives better. Tuning our consciousness to the Akashic field can uncover the truth of our existence.
