What is the Akashic Field? by CJ Martes

Philosopher and systems theorist Ervin Laszlo makes the case that science is finally in a position to produce a theory of everything (ToE). Drawing on anomalies and advances in cosmology, quantum physics, biology, and consciousness studies, he shows how the discovery in physics of the zero point energy field (ZPE), is also the discovery of a universal information field.
Mystics and sages have long maintained that an interconnecting cosmic field exists at the roots of reality that conserves and conveys information, a field known as the Akashic Record. The most notable mystic and psychic who routinely assessed the Akashic records in the form of readings for individuals, was Edgar Cayce. Edgar Cayce lived from 1877 to 1945 and during his lifetime performed thousands of such readings for people all over the world.
Cayce was very well respected for all of his intuitive insights. He greatly influenced the lives of his clients. He also influenced the holistic health field with some of the natural remedies he brought from the Akashic Records. It is easy to study his work because he carefully documented each person’s reading and follow-up for many years past a client’s initial session with him. Because of this, he gained perhaps the most concrete evidence and information about the way the Akashic Records work for each of us.
Cayce believed that the Akashic Records contained a history of every soul since the dawn of creation. These records connect us to each other he often said. They contain the stimulus for every symbol, archetype or mythic story that has ever heavily touched the patterns of human behavior.
When asked where the records reside, Cayce would say they exist within “the skein of space and time” and told many people interested in his work that the “records are everywhere”. He further believed that the records are inscribed on some kind of “etheric energy” similar in nature to the energy of thought. This could be correlated to the “aether” of scientific interest.
The records are impressed or encoded into energy they are continually rewritten based on our choices, thoughts and emotion. He believed that revealing the past for a person in his readings was useful to bring about conscious awareness of the soul’s growth. He never stopped emphasizing that the records are written by each of us by our own free will and choices made in the present. He reinforced also that our choices in the present moment allow the future possibilities to unfold in our lives from our Akashic Records.
Cayce explained that the Akashic records not only store everything in the past of an individual but they also contain all the future possibilities and potentials for our lives. He believed that we basically call into potential an array of possible futures as we interact in our daily lives and learn subconsciously from the data that has already been accumulated.
The theory Cayce had that all the future potentials for us already exist in the Akashic Records simply waiting for our free will to call them into action, is strikingly similar to a view that would emerge many decades later in the newest area of science called Quantum Mechanics and then with Ervin Laszlos Theory of Everything.
It also further supports that our thoughts do indeed create our reality and that it is our perceptions that drive what is real for each of us.
Quantum scientists recently discovered a new area of time and space called the Quantum vacuum. There are newly discovered properties of time and space happening all the time but it seems clear now that this vacuum is a super dense cosmic frictionless medium that carries light and all the universal forces of nature. A well known scientist and philosopher named Ervin Laszlo, in his recently published book, Science and the Akashic Field shows that it may not only be a super dense sea of frictionless energy but also a sea of information conveying the historical experience of matter.
These newest discoveries in the field of quantum physics now show that the Akashic Field may indeed be real and have its equivalent in the zero-point field that underlies space itself. Ervin Laszlo stated in his recent book that the quantum vacuum essentially, “generates the holographic field that is the memory of the universe.”
This Quantum Field consists of a subtle sea of fluctuating energies from which all things arise: atoms and galaxies, stars and planets, living beings, and even consciousness. This zero-point Akashic -field-or “A-Field” as Laszlo calls it, is not only the original source of all things that arise in time and space; it is also the constant and enduring memory of the universe. The “A-Field” holds the record of all that has ever happened in life, on Earth, and in the cosmos and relates it to all that has yet to happen. It is essentially what helps a universe know how to become a universe, how plants know how to be plants and so forth. It literally conveys all the information of life itself.
Laszlo conveys the essential element of his vision of the “informed universe” in language that is accessible and clear. The informed universe lends credence to our deepest intuitions of the oneness of life and the whole of creation. In discussion of the theory of the informed universe, it is interesting to note that Cayce also believed that the records connected us to each other and that the universe was indeed “orderly”.
Laszlo further suggests that the A-Field is like a hologram that is imprinted with all that has been or ever will be similar to Cayce’s assertion that the Akashic Records contained all that was and all the potentials for our future.
If the recent scientific theory of the Akashic Field is true, then all the ancient knowledge written about the Akashic Records or “The Book of Life” are not merely myths but an integral part of our world. If this universal energy field is written with our thoughts and actions, then it would be reasonable to believe that it can be accessed consciously. If it can be rewritten consciously, then much of the past and traumatic events we hold in our A-Field could be liberated and thus increase the energy for positive potentials in an individual’s life.
