Book Review: A Radical Approach to the Akashic Records

Originally published in the Winter 2019 issue of Pathways Magazine.

There’s a saying in marketing that’s repeated often: “People don’t want a quarter inch drill, they want a quarter inch hole.” In other words, the hole is the goal. We buy the drill to get to the hole. The drill is simply a means to an end. And so it is with personal and spiritual development. We’re of course taught that the journey and the process of growth is where the real treasure lies, but what most of us are after is the transformation—the evolution into the butterfly. The butterfly is fulfilling his potential. The butterfly seems happy, so of course we want to be the butterfly, but first we have to go through this long and arduous process of breaking ourselves down in order to build ourselves back up. There are many schools of thought on the best ways of doing this, one being the Akashic Records.

The principle of Melissa’s Feick book,A Radical Approach to the Akashic Records is simple: you’re living in an illusion, and your soul’s goal is to transcend that illusion so that you can escape the wheel of karma and fully experience your own divinity: a happier life, nurturing relationships, optimal health, etc. The quickest way to do this is to get to the truth behind the story that you’re living and literally rewrite the script.

Feick explains that the Records can show you not only how to do that, but also how past and potential stories factor into the matter as well. She introduces the Records as “a living archive of every single conscious experience in the universe, including every thought, emotion, action, or situation, as well as the cycles of stars and planets.” In short, the Records are a high vibrational realm where you “go” to find answers, ask questions, and redesign old patterns that no longer serve your evolutionary needs.

Complete with meditations and exercises that guide you through your own personal Records, A Radical Approach to the Akashic Records deftly breaks down esoteric subject matter such as karmic entanglements, reincarnation, and the planes of existence. Feick presents a clear and concise path to and through the Records for beginner, intermediate, and advanced practitioners alike. And if that’s not enough, she also shows you how to help others with their records when and if you’re ready to do so.

Melissa Feick has a way of teaching esoteric subjects in an approachable way that comes across just as clearly in written form as it does when you’re physically in the room with her. I would know, because I studied spiritual and intuitive development with her for nearly two years on and off. This book is an excellent addition to spiritual literature on Akashic Record wisdom, if not a complete guide on how to live your life purpose.
