How many times have you tried to make a decision or take a step, but something kept you stuck? Whether we like it or not, resistance is a natural part of progress. Here's how working with the Akashic Records can help reduce the space between resistance and success.

We can all be stubborn

The first time the Akashic Masters told me I needed to write a book, I planted my hands firmly on my hips and said, “I’m already writing a proposal for my memoir. I want to write that book!” The Masters said there were other books that needed to come first.

I was in the thick of resistance. Instead of saying, “Tell me more,” I argued with them. “I have an infant, two babies and a teenager to take care of. Not to mention a husband. Where will I find the time?”

They responded by telling me that a woman who’d taken my classes would be a tremendous help. “I hardly know her,” I responded. “I haven’t spoken to her in eight months and I’m just supposed to call her out of the blue and ask her to help me write a book?” My hands were still on my hips. “And what am I supposed to write about?”

Again, they patiently answered, “You’ve done the work already. You developed a class and it’s time for that knowledge to be shared with the world. She will help you.”

Slowly my resistance melted

I procrastinated for a little while longer but I was so sure she would say “No,” and I’d be off the hook that I decided to get it over with. When I told her why I was calling, she said, “I was just thinking I’d like to work on a book project!”

It was a fabulous collaboration! We wrote a proposal, which took first prize in a book contest that had 350 entries. I got an agent, who made a book deal with a publisher for my first book, The Infinite Wisdom of the Akashic Records. It rocketed to the top of Amazon’s bestseller list within weeks of launching it into the world.

Take two

The second time the Masters told me I needed to write a book, it was only nine months after the first book had been published. “Seriously?” I asked. Then they told me it was to be an Akashic prayer book and I immediately pushed back, “How am I supposed to write a prayer book? I don’t know how to write prayers!”

They reminded me that in a “former life,” I had been a Science of Mind prayer practitioner for ten years. “Oh, right,” I said. “Maybe I can.”

The full support of the Masters came through as soon as I surrendered resistance. They gave me 73 prayers for my new book, From Questioning to Knowing ~ 73 Prayers to Transform Your Life and I easily connected with the exact right people to help me write, polish and publish it.

My resistance the second time was nowhere near what it was the first. Why? Because of my experiences with the Akashic Records. Through it, I have reclaimed past life wisdom from when I was a successful author who wrote with ease. It helped me to obtain insight from all the lives where I was a published author and I quickly found all I needed to support me in this life. It helped to clear my path by allowing me to release trauma and pain, from any lifetime, that would prevent my success.


At its core, resistance is fear. Fear of the unknown. Fear that we’re not capable. Fear that we are. And fear is closely connected with unresolved issues that often stem from old vows and contracts made in other lives, and karma from our choices in those lives. Working with the Akashic Records is the best way I’ve found to identify and let go of what holds me back. And now I have two books to prove it!

What is it you want to accomplish? Where are you resisting? Maybe it’s time to let the Akashic Masters help you the way they’ve helped me. There are so many ways to connect with your Akashic Records – books, meditation, classes, personal readings – so why not give it a try? I promise it will be a valuable step in helping to melt your resistance and find the success you want.
