About the Author

Linda Howe is the founder and director of The Center for Akashic Studies, an organization dedicated to promoting the study of Akashic Records and other applicable spiritual wisdom. Active in healing arts for more than 20 years, Linda was moved and inspired by the power of the Records within herself and her clients. She began teaching this practice to students in 1996 and, today, she has successfully taught thousands of students to accurately read the Akashic Records.

More About the Author

After nearly two decades of spiritual searching, Linda Howe encountered the Akashic Records in 1994, and has been deliberately engaging them for personal growth and consciousness development (for herself and others) ever since! One of the first ideas she explored was accessing the Akasha as an infinite, spiritual resource for empowerment and transformation. At the time, she thought she clearly understood it all. Twenty years later, Linda continues to mine the riches of the Akashic Records, now recognizing that she has only just begun grasping the implications and meanings of "infinite" and furthermore, that she may never fully understand it all!

Along the way, Linda developed her own uniquely inspired curriculum for spiritual growth through the Akasha, using the Records as the sacred dimension of awareness for awakening and aligning with the Soul. Supporting these studies, in 2001 she founded the Linda Howe Center and created the Pathway Prayer Process to Access the Heart of the Akashic Records. Working with thousands of students over the years - learning more than she ever imagined possible! - Linda presented her unrivaled, practical approach to the public with her award winning books, How to Read the Akashic Records (2009) and Healing Through the Akashic Records (2011). Her third book, Discover Your Soul's Path Through the Akashic Records will be released by Hay House in February 2015.

Through her interpretations of reality and developed spiritual practices, Linda facilitates for both clients and students rich, rewarding, transformative experiences with deeper truths, providing inspired insights and useful resolutions to Life's challenges. Whether in personal Akashic Records consultations, in-person or online classes, working with Linda provides an opportunity to see one's self and life from the perspective of the Soul, empowering living in conscious alignment with authentic truths.

In a variety of venues - including Kripalu Center, Omega Institute, Infinity Foundation and Daily Om, as well as her own Center in Chicago - Linda can be found providing interesting and impactful perspectives, practices and protocols to all who seek transformation and enlightenment in this lifetime. In her ExtraOrdinary ordinary life, Linda resides with her partner of three decades and their son, in a Chicago suburb.

This book is so interesting and so easy to read.
In this book, in a precise, personal, and accessible language, Linda Howe gives us direct access to experience the healing energy of the akashic records.
My sister can read for others and just closes her eyes and types the answers to the questions that you ask.

As a hypnotherapist and shamanic teacher and student I had high hopes for the presentation of this material. In this New Age of techniques and energies coming into the planet, the myriad information about the Akashic Records can be confusing to novices and even veteran students. I went into this book excitedly seeking a different approach to the Records. While Howe clearly demonstrates her own experiences using the Records for herself and others, I remain unconvinced that this is a solid text for new Akashic students. Howe created an instructional CD based on this same material, so perhaps the book is more useful when paired with the CD.

Howe begins the book by sharing her personal experience, not only with the Akashic Records, but with the powerful spiritual awakenings she had along the way. From that wonderful voice I was very excited to read her account of the Records. The more I read, the more formulaic the writing became, thus her voice was not as prevalent, and the delivery of information became clinical. That change in voice influenced my connection to the material. Howe's understanding that clients must participate in their healing process is spot-on, as is her explanation of shifts of consciousness and emphasis on the need for grounding rituals entering into and departing from healing work. Her reliance on facets of the ritual being the exact same for everyone every time is more Piscean than I am accustomed. I respect that she is presenting a method as it has revealed itself to her, but relaying an artful modality as concrete can result in creating distance more than revealing opportunity. Ultimately that can only be discerned by individuals as they work with the material.

Linda Howe says that the work of the Akashic Records will "blow you away" and that is what my first experience with reading about and practicing The Pathway Prayer method for accessing the Akashic Records has done. Linda promises it will "blow away the misperceptions you have held about the world up to this point." She also says that if you want to feel loved and appreciated, access your Akashic Records - the record of your life force throughout eternity. When I followed her instructions outlined in her book that is exactly how I felt.

In the realm of light workers, Linda Howe is a leader and a master teacher. Her book will guide you expertly into the realm of your Akashic Records and also teach you how to read others Akashic Records.

It is easy to read and follow and an absolute joy to experience.

I highly recommend Linda Howe's book "How To Read the Askashic Records: Accessing the Archive of the Soul and Its Journey".

I had heard how helpful it is to "mine the Akash" but had no idea how to do it. When I came across Linda Howe's work, I was hopeful that I'd be able to follow her guidelines and use this resource for myself. Fast forward a few months, and I have developed a relationship with my Soul Self through the Records that has given me information for day to day challenges, has helped me heal long-standing painful relationships, has provided practical and detailed information for how to run my business, and has given me a way to help others.

Through a simple prayer pathway into the Records, you'll find yourself face to face with You, through the eyes of your Masters, Teachers and Loved Ones, and you'll love who you are.

I'm so grateful that Linda has taught us the "how" and that we have access to something we can, with a little practice, easily do for ourselves.

Before I read Linda's book, my research led me to believe that I could not access the Akashic Records for myself. That when doing so would yield a blank page. Or if one is able to access their record, there exist a possibility of a limited viewing. I have always been open minded to wait until the time is right, to see whether this belief that I had would hold up over the long haul.

I'm grateful that there is now a resource that provides us with an entry into the records. Linda has given me hope that I can access my own record as a source of guidance in my life when I need it.

I know that it's going to take some time for me to align my vibrations to match up with the higher vibrations of the Records, so that I can properly access them. In the mean time, I have felt some inkling of insight coming from the records as I meditate.

While the testimonials on the side pages are neat to read, I feel that they are not necessary. Too many profiteers have used them to sell goods and services over the years that they have become irrelevant.

Those of us who are ready, willing and able to access the Records using this book as a guide will do so. If this is you... give it everything that you have within you to get there. Let no one stand in your way in reaching the records and your evolution.

Blessings dear ones.

I've studied with Sonia Choquette, and am Level 2 Certified. I am also a Certified Practitioner with Linda Howe, through a workshop I attended after reading this book. I have been taught Sonia's simplistic yet very effective method of entering the Akashic Records. I use Sonia's method, coupled with part of Linda's method, when I do professional readings. I write this saying that Linda Howe was the first to get so in depth about the records. I write this, saying, to explore all methods, and be sure to get an understanding of what is involved, by reading this book. Read this book with an open mind, open heart, and no ego. Do know that this isn't the only book you'll want to read, but this will start you in a direction.

Linda Howe enters the Akashic Records through a 12 stanza prayer, not easy to memorize. I like Linda's prayer, I can feel a consciousness shift, but I can't stand not memorizing something I'm supposed to, for one on one readings. Linda never says to memorize it, and I do memorize things, (phone numbers, etc...), but for some reason, the Akashic Record's prayer in this book, I always have to turn to the book or my typed paper to recite it. I don't find that professional or comfortable, so I use what I've easily memorized, with less wording. The Universe wants simplicity.

The first chapters give you a solid background, and knowledge. The next chapters go into properly accessing the records, and certain guidelines. Throughout the book, there are side lines quoted. That isn't needed, and diverted my attention. The sidelines reminded me of advertisements, for some reason. This part of the book goes into Akashic records on animals, plants, government, and public buildings.
