When I was 25 years old, Dick Sutphen published "You Were Born Again To Be Together". I was reading Carlos Castaneda, Hermann Hess, Ram Dass, and others but knew little about hypnosis other than a brief lecture and demo in one of my Psych classes at UMD. What would my life have been like if I had watched TV back then and saw Mr. Supthen on one of the talk shows? I never watched TV and would never have watched a talk show. Best selling book, yet somehow I missed it. I just found out about him this year when someone mentioned that she studied under the great hypnotist Dick Sutphen. I said who? What makes him so great? Then I read the book and visited his website and I must agree. He is a great hypnotist and so humbling. Quite an inspiration.
But why do I mention Dick Sutphen in the same breath as the Akashic records? Well in his book he describes the 3 levels of the mind as follows:
- " Conscious mind: will, reason, logic and the five physical senses.
- Subconscious mind: imagination, memory, habit patterns, emotions, and the Akashic records.
- Superconscious mind: the creative force and psychic abilities, plus unlimited unknown powers."
This is the first time I have seen the Akashic records listed as part of the realm of the subconscious. I see why he thought that. It would explain how psychics like Edgar Cayce and others could/can access the Akashic records with relative ease. But my work with Life Between Lives clients and my reading would suggest that the Akashic records lie in the Astral plane, the Spiritual World, Heaven.
Perhaps this plane is as close as the air we breathe and that is why it is so easily and quickly accessible by those who try. Example: when I first called on Archangel Michael to help me with my work, I was surprised to feel his presence immediately! In a split second, almost as soon as I issued the call. Was he standing close by because he knew I was working and might need him or is the Spirit World all around us all the time? So close that one might say it is a part of our subconscious mind.
We are it and it is we and we are all together... Happy Sunday.
