A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens hasn’t been out of print since it’s first publication in 1843. It has been translated into dozens of languages and converted into countless plays, TV shows, and theatrical productions. This is the story of a miserly old man who changes his life, and the lives of many others through a personal epiphany. But did you know that this tenderhearted and moving story is actually about the Akashic Records?
Think about it for a moment. This elderly gentleman (through the help of spirit) is able to go back and witness his choices and circumstances of the past. He is also able to investigate the present and witness the options and nearby possibilities that his present moments hold.
Finally, he is taken into the records of his potential future, a future that seems inevitable based on his present behaviour, attitude, and choices. A future where both he and the sweet child Tiny Tim pass away by Christmas of the following year.
He realises through these various travels through time and experiences in the records that he no longer wants to pursue the same path that he is on. In fact, when looking upon his own headstone, Scrooge is driven to pleading with the Ghost of Christmas Yet to come. He says:
Men’s courses will foreshadow certain ends, to which, if persevered in, they must lead…But if the courses be departed from, the ends will change. Good Spirit…Assure me that I yet may change these shadows you have shown me by an altered life.Scrooge.
The Ghost doesn’t respond to him, but Scrooge learns his answer upon waking up on Christmas morning. When ge realises he is still alive, his Spirit is renewed and filled with deep appreciation and excitement for life. Scrooge then goes on to write wonderful new records in his present life, records filled with compassion, generosity, and a higher purpose of helping his fellow man than he ever had before.
Clearly he viewed and changed his own Future Records, and through Scrooge’s loving intervention, Tiny Tim did not die the following Christmas. Scrooge himself lived on and became known for his exuberance. It was said of him that he knew how to keep Christmas well, and that he kept in his heart throughout the year, a function of joyous Present Records. Just consider this.
Though Charles Dickens never identified it, Scrooge was a man who used the incredible power of the Akashic Records, the information brought by Spirit and held in the ethers, to his benefit and to the benefit of many others. Marley’s Ghost had interceded for Scrooge and predicted his reclamation, revealing another important function of the Akashic Records: Foretelling the possible future and viewing present options in order to create change there..
Now what if I told you, you could do just that. To its core.
