What Your Cells Remember
A guy walks into a restaurant and sits down at his favorite table. The waiter comes by to take his order. “What’ll you have?'” he says.
“The usual,” the man replies.
This isn’t the opening for a comedic story. However, just about everyone can relate to doing (saying, experiencing, feeling, etc.) the same things repeatedly. It’s called a karmic loop or a pattern. We all have them, so why aren’t we talking more about them?
Many of us don’t even recognize these patterns exist, and if we do . . .
They’re not that well understood.
Karma, or “life memory” exists without judgement. Yet, there’s emotion attached to karma – which is why karma exists. Emotions are remembered and recorded. How you feel about something is held as cellular memory – not just for this lifetime, but for many lifetimes.
Consider the rings within a tree, for example. During a prosperous growth year – perfect weather, just the right amount of water, no infestation of insects, etc., the tree grows abundantly. You can witness this by perhaps the amount of fruit produced, or the increase in the height of the tree. On the inside, a record is kept in the form of growth rings. If the tree were to be cut down at some point so that you could see a cross-section of the trunk, you’d be able to see evidence in the ring of that year. The growth ring would be wide – perhaps wider than other rings. If, however, the tree experienced drought, excessive heat, infestation, or crowding, the growth ring would reflect that as being much narrower.
In much the same way, humans keep a cellular record of experiences and emotions. In her research, Dr. Candace Pert (Molecules of Emotion) determined the presence of specific molecules in every cell membrane. It was not only a way for cells to communicate with each other but also a kind of memory that lasted throughout life. I’d like to add that these memories exist throughout “lifetimes” as Akashic memory or records.
How Do You Access the Akashic Records?
Some people refer to the Akashic records as a sort of library for all events, emotions, thoughts and experiences that span all time – past, present and future. If that’s so, then accessing the Akashic records might be like a visit to a great hall of records with shelves piled high with great volumes of books. Just entering a meditative state with relaxed breathing can allow you to search the records and have just the right book delivered to your desk, opened to the right page where you can read the answers you seek.
Imagining a library may in itself be a limiting aspect of accessing the Akashic records. Therefore, I like to eliminate any preconceived notions about how the records might be represented and, following meditation, just allow information to come through as an image, thought, feeling, or experience.
What Does Akashic Healing Mean?
Like the man in the restaurant at the beginning of this article, we often repeat the same choices without much thought . . . the same types of relationships or similar types of work or interests. If these choices bring joy and growth, that’s great! However, what seems to be an issue with many of my clients is that disharmony – or a feeling of being out of alignment – brings about a host of maladies including pain, dis-ease, confusion, regret, depression, and more. Accessing the Akashic records can provide insight, seeing a situation from a different perspective, perhaps, or offering a new idea or solution. A feeling of “knowing the truth” can affect immediate change. Suddenly, a different menu – or even a different restaurant (if you stick with the original example) emerges. New choices that feel completely different awaken a part of you that you had forgotten – or never knew – existed.
Remembering trauma, pain, or deep emotions isn’t a requirement for healing. You don’t have to know why something happened, or recall any details in order to heal old wounds. However, there are several very important concepts that allow the shift of energy in order for healing to occur.
- Relax – Step out of “thinking” and into “feeling”. This is an activation of the third eye or intuitive sense. Allowing yourself to let go of any preconceived beliefs or outcomes lets go of control – a vital part of healing.
- Scan – This is a process of noticing by feeling. Sometimes “symptoms” get buried by the mind so you feel unaffected. This also has a numbing effect, keeping you from feeling the worst pain has to offer. It’s a survival mechanism. Yet, ultimately it acts against you as pain (suffering, numbness) accumulates.
- Forgive – The act of forgiving brings out compassion for both the person needing healing as well as the offender. In your original contract, you agreed to the experience. Holding onto the experience, however, slows your spiritual growth and ultimate enlightenment.
- Gratitude – Expressing thanks acknowledges both the pain and the healing, the receiver and the giver. Ultimate gratitude provides a sense of relief and a new foundation on which to grow and discover new pathways.
