We all have moments in our lives that we’d rather forget. Wouldn’t it be convenient if you could decide which memories that you wanted to keep, and get rid of ones that you’d rather forget by pushing a “delete” button as if it were an app on your smartphone?
If only, right?
Your Akashic Records store all of your memories.
That might make you might wonder if a “digital detox” is possible in your records like it is in your inbox.
People often ask me if it’s possible to delete memories from your Akashic Records. And they’re usually disappointed by the answer.
The truth is that you can’t delete anything from your Akashic Records. All of those “files,” good or bad, become part of your permanent collection of experiences.
Your old memories aren’t going anywhere. That’s the bad news. But the good news is that when you learn the reason why you might actually be happy about this!
Let me explain with an example.
Suppose that you own your own business, and it’s up to you to keep a steady stream of clients flowing in at all times. So you sent an email to your list promoting your new program, and you’re positive that it will be a huge hit with your audience.
But then after that, days go by. And nobody buys.
What happens next? The emotions start to hit. Those feelings of rejection, unworthiness, maybe even resentment come flying out of the woodwork. And after that? You begin to remember EVERY time in the past when you’ve felt rejected, unworthy, or resentful.
Then the story takes on a life of its own. Nobody likes your work, you’re not worthy, and you’ll end up a failure in your business.
All this because of a single email that didn’t get any responses?
Why ALL Your Memories Are Important
We all feel emotions during our experiences. And often, those emotions become attached to our memories. From there, memories become beliefs. Beliefs that just might keep you stuck rather than set you free.
But if it’s impossible to delete an old memory from your Akashic Records, are you doomed to continue that cycle of emotional triggers everything something bad happens in your life?
Not at all. In fact, those old recollections that are brought up by emotional triggers can actually help you, if you let them.
You see, your experiences, both good or bad, are your greatest teachers. They’ve made you who you are today, and they’ve brought you to this very moment.
It’s not possible to delete a memory…but you CAN delete the emotions around the memories.
Deleting Emotions, Not Memories
You see, at this point, it’s not the memory that is causing you grief. It’s the emotions and the feelings ABOUT the memory. It’s the story that you have created around those old circumstances that are really holding you back.
But if you’re able to clear the emotions attached to those old stories, something magical happens. Your old memories don’t cause you pain anymore. You’re also able to understand the lessons that your circumstances intended to teach you.
No experience shows up in your life without a reason. Your Soul, in its wisdom, calls forth the circumstances that you need in this lifetime, and its wisdom can always be trusted.
Of course, that doesn’t mean that you’ll always like the experience when it’s happening. In fact, certain circumstances might seem not only painful but also pointless, and leave you wishing that you could eliminate them from your Records for good.
But that’s the point: no experiences are pointless. And if you simply deleted a memory without gaining its wisdom, your Soul would only create another experience just like it. The same circumstances would continue to haunt you until you finally accepted the lesson.
Even Painful Memories Are worth Keeping
It’s the painful emotions and the stories surrounding them that hold you back! How do you keep the lesson, though, and at the same time let go of the fear, pain, or anger?
Once again, doing the work in your Akashic Records is one of the most powerful tools you can use! Connecting to your Records allows you to discover the source of your emotional triggers. And through the process of Akashic Clearings, you can let go of the while preserving the wisdom.
Akashic Clearings are a powerful practice, a way to observe old triggers from your Soul’s perspective, release the pain, and keep the wisdom that the experience intended to deliver. It’s just one more way that connecting to the power of your Soul can help you grow into the person you always wanted to be.
Next time I see you, we’ll start using the Akashic Records to invite creativity, abundance, and joy into your life! How do your Records help you open up the channels of abundance? We’ll talk about that next time!
