An Akashic Perspective on Enlightenment
What does Enlightenment mean, and how can the Akashic Records help us with this?
Our definition for Enlightenment is seeing your self as Light. It is “turning the lights on” in your life and in yourselves, so you see yourselves as Light. Enlightenment is not accomplished by seeking something other than your own Light. Enlightenment is seeing yourself for what you are -- and what you are is Love. Someone or something that is enlightened in this sense is someone or something that is fully aware of her, his, or its own divinity.
The Akashic Records can be of assistance with Enlightenment because they open the doorway to Enlightenment. They offer you information about yourselves so that you can see yourselves better, and so that you can see yourselves as Love. Imagine that you are an unusual human, one who was not born and raised here, but who just woke up one day and found yourself as a human being with two legs and two arms and a parent or two. If this were the case, you would likely start trying to figure out what you are. You would probably start asking some questions like, "What am I supposed to be doing with my legs, and where did these legs come from?" You would start with basic questions, and then move to more complicated questions like, "Why do I cry sometimes?” and “What does it mean when I have an emotion?" There is so much to learn about yourself when you imagine that you are brand new! If you were to apply this new vision to yourselves now, you would see yourselves far more clearly and accurately. The Akashic Records offer the answers to every question you have about yourself as an individual, and yourselves as the collective human race.
The metaphor of the imaginary person who suddenly arrived on the planet is useful because, as you move toward Enlightenment, you become unfamiliar to yourselves. Your old ways of doing things will not work the way they used to. This will occur to the point at which you might start driving to your place of work and you find that the old routes that have led you there in the past now lead you to the store! Some of you may recognize this in your own lives! You have to rethink, "How am I going to get to work?" and approach the situation anew. Other old ways of doing things will shift. For instance, a certain way you have communicated with your partner or your friend in the past may suddenly create a miscommunication. You will be led to rethink how you speak with this person, or how you listen to them, in order to communicate successfully. All of your old ways will need to be rewritten if you are going to turn the Light on, because everything is going to look different when you begin to see your own divinity. Some really fundamental things will begin to change.
You all have many habits that guide how you interact with each other that are based on an old idea that is held in some way by nearly every human being. This idea is that there is something wrong with you. Throughout history human beings been born, you grow up, and all of the other humans around you (with the best of intentions) convince you that there is something wrong with you. They say, “You’re hungry, but this is not the appropriate time to eat, so what your body is telling you is wrong.” Or, “You‘re crying and you must stop because this is the wrong place to cry." Eventually you become convinced that your natural instincts are incorrect and that there is something wrong with you. You think, “I’m hungry, but I shouldn't be hungry – my feeling must be wrong.” And then you carry that sense of “wrongness” around for your entire lives.
The wonderful thing about human beings is that you find very successful ways of communicating with each other and surviving in the world based on the belief that there is something wrong with you. You even find ways of thriving and growing and healing, and you have a wonderful time despite this distressing belief. But most of the habits that you develop, most of the ways you communicate, and most of the things you do with your bodies or to your bodies are fundamentally based in the idea that you are bad or that you are missing something. You are constantly trying to make up for this belief or to hide it, and this is quite exhausting.
The radical thing that changes when you go through Enlightenment is that as you begin to see your own divinity and to recognize that there is absolutely nothing wrong with you. We would have you pause here because it is such a profound recognition that must occur to grasp this. You begin to think things like, "There is nothing wrong with me! I'm hungry at midnight and it is wonderful!” or "I'm going to eat chocolate chip cookies for dinner, how perfect!" The process of Enlightenment involves recognizing that if you have a clear desire or a whim, it is likely rooted in something that is right for you and good, because goodness is what you are. And when you start to recognize this inherent goodness you are turning the Lights on and you are moving toward Enlightenment. Many people in the world now are doing this by accident and many are doing it intentionally, and either way works just fine.
You can think of yourself as that imaginary person who just appears in the world. In Enlightenment, you wake up in the morning and everything is new. You cannot base your expectations for the day on what previous days have looked like, because you are turning the lights on and, whether you like it or not, you will see things anew every day. Some days you might feel frustrated and say, "I just wish my old ways would work!" Other days, you will feel excited and free as you come to understand each moment as a new adventure. The Akashic Records can offer a huge amount of information about who you are and what you are doing here in this lifetime. They can also help you understand what others are doing and why people in your life behave the way they do. More than anything, the Akashic Records can offer you information that is grounded in the truth that you are completely good and completely made of Love. This perspective is different from a lot of the other sources of information about yourselves that you have had available before. This perspective is immensely helpful in the Enlightenment process.
As we move through Enlightenment, is it normal to experience big shifts of energy?
Will there be a shift in enlightenment that happens where those who have chosen to move away from third dimensional reality will have done so?

How can I know what I am doing on this Earth is meaningful and in my highest good?
There are many, many possible answers. It will depend on who you are and how you feel in your life. Some of you recognize that you are in alignment because you feel happy emotionally, some of you recognize you feel you are in alignment because you feel physically energized, some of you recognize you are in alignment because you feel the energy of love moving through you. There are infinite variations, and your experience will depend a lot on what your work is and how you exist in your life. All of that being said, we can give you a better answer than "It depends." The bottom line is this: if you are not happy doing what you do, some part of your work is out of alignment.
Every form of work has three characteristics. Any one of those characteristics can be out of alignment and therefore make your work or your work situation not right for you. First, the definition for work in itself from the perspective of the Records is that work, as we are defining it, is any form of activity that has a purpose, that it is ongoing in your life and, and that it involves you engaging in one way or another with the world, even if it is only through ideas.
Anything you do that includes those three things is work regardless of whether you are paid, regardless of whether you have been hired, regardless of whether you have a clear definition of what it is you are doing. Some of you are called to do things that do not fit in any particular professions; others of you are called to do things in this world that fit beautifully with one profession or another. Still others are called to create or redefine particular professions or occupations. Remember this includes unpaid work or unpaid activities.
In that broad definition of work, every form of work has these three primary characteristics. One is the characteristic of what act your work involves. What act or activity is executed physically in the material world? The second is with whom you do the work. What people are involved in your work and in what ways or how are those relationships built? The third characteristic is being called freedom of expression. This is the question of what parts of your self, your inner self, your identity, are expressed through this work. Those are the three categories to consider when you are asking the question of how you know whether the work you are doing is a right fit for you.
As you look at your work, whatever you are occupied in doing, it is important to look at each of those three categories. The bottom line is if you feel happy doing your work, or in your work situation, then you can assume that it is in alignment for you, that you are right on track. If you feel unhappy, regardless of whether you understand why, if you feel unhappy in doing your work, whatever your occupation is, then look at these three categories and consider which of them is out of alignment. If all three are out of alignment or if the three seem out of alignment, you can know that your work is not right for you; that you need to move into some other field of work or some other form of occupation. If one or two of these categories is out of alignment, often you can realign the category and you will find that you become happy again in your work. It is like a basic equation. Are you happy or not? Yes or no? If no, go on to the next question. The next question is look at the three categories. If all three are out of alignment or if none of the three are out of alignment, then go on to the next question.
Then the next question is what other occupation do you want to be doing? Going back to the second question, if two or one of those categories has a distinct problem, something in it that is not working for you, then you can begin to work with this, make some changes within your work to discover if your occupation is right, but that the situation has been built incorrectly or out of alignment. The first category to address is what is the material function of your job? Is the activity or executing the action, delightful and empowering for you or is it boring, rigid or pointless? If you work in a toy factory building toys, do you enjoy the process of painting and screwing things together? Do you enjoy the physical process of building the toy or do you find it irritating or dissatisfying? That is one thing you might change. You might find that you feel called to working in the toy factory or that you love the idea of bringing toys into the world, but that the act of putting the toys together is not the right fit for you. You need to change within this field of work to an activity that might be marketing the toys or supervising those that build the toys. It may be delivering the toys is what brings you joy. You might find that you need to change your role in your work in order to do the physical activity that brings you satisfaction that you enjoy doing on a moment-by-moment basis.
The second category is the people that you work with. It could be that you are in the perfect profession for you, that you are occupied by exactly the activity that makes you most happy, but you are surrounded by people or relationships that disempower you, that lead you to feel bad about yourself or they somehow get in the way of your happiness. In this case again, you are called to make a change the way you engage with those people or to remove yourself all together from those relationships and situations.
The third category is this category called freedom of expression. Another word I will use for it is purpose. Do you feel a connection between your existence in doing this work and its effect on the outer world that make you feel as if your true self is being expressed through this work? This one is a little less tangible than the first two, but is just as important and just as real and solid. You do not always have the right terms for this. Can you see and feel the connection between what you are doing and its affect in the world that satisfies you or gives you a sense of purpose? If so, then relax and enjoy it. If not, what you may need to do to find satisfaction in your work is to make those connections. Seek a way to perceive those connections in order to give your work a sense of meaning for yourself. For instance, if you find that you really do enjoy building toys and you really are surrounded by people that you enjoy and with whom you feel empowered, and yet you continue to feel unhappy, it may be that you are building the toys but never seeing them used, is leading you to a sense of dissatisfaction so that you might volunteer to join the delivery van and watch the toys being delivered. You might choose to work for the marketing team or visit the marketing team and see the children who play with the toys and how they choose those toys. As you go back to the toy factory and continue building them, you can imagine in your mind's eye, you can remember the joy you saw in those children who are playing with your toys. Making that connection can often lead you to satisfaction. But again, if all three of those categories are not working for you, or if none of those categories can quite be identified, you might assume that your occupation is not quite right for you and it will benefit you to look for something different.
