Hi Anonymous I’ve never heard of it but I found a website that I just read about it. This might give you a place to start its http://www.akashicsstudies.com/akashic.html
The akashic records (akasha is a Sanskrit word meaning “sky”, “space” or “aether”) is a term used in theosophy (and Anthroposophy) to describe a compendium of mystical knowledge encoded in a non-physical plane of existence. These records are described as containing all knowledge of human experience and the history of the cosmos.
They are metaphorically described as a library; other analogies commonly found in discourse on the subject include a “universal supercomputer” and the “Mind of God”. People who describe the records assert that they are constantly updated automatically and that they can be accessed through astral projection or when someone is placed under deep hypnosis.
The concept was popularized in the theosophical movements of the 19th century and is derived from Hindu philosophy of Samkhya. It is promulgated in the Samkhya philosophy that the Akashic records are automatically recorded in the elements of akasha one of the five types of elements visualized as existing in the elemental theory of Ancient India, called Mahabhuta.
The term ‘akashic records’ is frequently used in New Age discourse.
Your explanation of the ‘akashic records’ is spot on.
Someone else must be using ‘anonomyssy’ as well, I didn’t ask that question….hmmmmm…?
The question was actually asked in the comments to What is a Watcher? When completely different questions are asked within the answers section of another question I try to move them to keep things on topic.
