Interview with Linda Howe

Today I’m welcoming author and spiritual teacher, Linda Howe. Thank you, Linda for stopping by!


Sheila ~ Can you tell us a little about yourself?

Linda ~ When I was 6, and then when I was 24, I had intense spiritual experiences, when I understood—with every particle of my being—the Oneness of all. I began exploring my Path by investigating religions and experimenting with all things “spiritual,” including classic core shamanism, divinatory arts, and various methods of prayer and meditation.     


Then, 22 years ago, I encountered the Akashic Records—and felt like I had “come home.” Two years, and at least 1500 readings later, I was guided to begin teaching with the blessing of my human teacher. In September 2001, with guidance from the Records, I created the Pathway Prayer Process©, a simple method anyone can use to access the heart of the Akashic Records and have a more conscious relationship with your soul. Now, the Records are no longer reserved for the elite few, but, for the first time in history, are available to all!


I founded the Linda Howe Center for Akashic Studies in Chicago in 2001 to share my groundbreaking methods for systematically, reliably accessing the Records for personal empowerment, consciousness development, and expanded spiritual awareness. Today I provide training through live and online classes (CEU’s and credits are available), an on-demand program, coaching sessions, personal consultations, and my books and CD’s. In 2015, I earned my Doctorate in Spiritual Studies—Akashic Records, being the first person ever to hold such a degree.


In April, I was brought full circle, again impressed by our global Oneness, during a thrilling month-long teaching tour of China. It is my joy to work with all who seek transformation and enlightenment in this lifetime!



Sheila ~ You’re the leader in the field of Akashic Studies. Tell us, what are the Akashic Records?

Linda ~ The Akashic Record is a vibrational archive of every soul and its human journey through time and space. Each set of Records is made up of two distinct parts: the energetic blueprint of the soul—outlining Divine Potential—and the catalogue of lifetimes experienced by a human being who is awakening to this blueprint and growing into Divine Potential, one lifetime at a time. I like to think of the Records as the “Cosmic Chronicles of You.” Essentially a spiritual resource, one need not be psychic to engage the Akasha or to benefit from the Akashic Atmosphere of infinite kindness, respect, and appreciation.

The Records have been recognized as an informational reservoir of insight, guidance, wisdom, and healing from the past, present, and future. More recently, many find working in the Records amplifies their efforts in other systems and disciplines, including therapeutic counseling, bodywork, hands-on energy work, artistic pursuits, and even business. In this sanctuary of infinite wisdom and compassion, the compelling truths living in the heart of our soul rise to the surface for us to recognize and implement in our everyday lives, facilitating an effective transition to leading a consciously soul-led life with its infinite satisfactions.  




Sheila ~ On your website you discuss the types of classes people can take with you. What are some of the things that your students may learn by attending these sessions?

Linda ~ My primary purpose in sharing my work with others is to empower us to meet our natural spiritual longings. The particulars of this vary with each unique individual, but some of the common threads weaving us together are identifiable. Students report an improved awareness of the love latent in every ordinary situation, increased willingness to extend kindness and respect to others—even to those we don’t understand—and greater courage to take consistent actions to manifest the deepest desires of the heart.  



Sheila ~ You’re the author of Discover Your Soul’s Path Through the Akashic Records: Taking Your Life from Ordinary to ExtraOrdinary, also Healing Through the Akashic Records: Using the Power of Your Sacred Wounds to Discover Your Soul’s Perfection, and How to Read the Akashic Records: Accessing the Archive of the Soul and Its Journey. Can you give us a brief description of what your books are about and where can readers purchase them?

Linda ~ All three books/CD’s are available through Amazon.

Discover Your Soul’s Path Through the Akashic Records: Taking Your Life from Ordinary to ExtraOrdinary (Hay House, 2015). This book is for searchers who know there is more to life—those who would like to identify their soul’s true path and to contribute more meaningfully in the world. In these pages, I reveal how to effectively make the shift from ordinary to ExtraOrdinary living—suffused with purpose, aliveness, and light—through the Akashic Records.

By learning to access the dimension of the Records, readers will gain insight into their earthly experiences and discover how to transform their lives into ones that radiate light and magnetize good. I share my very accessible and student-tested processes designed to facilitate awakening to true identity and soul’s destiny. I invite readers to explore the essential consciousness concepts of the Records, excavate the obstructing beliefs on their paths, and learn how to realign to the soul’s highest purposes.

Healing Through the Akashic Records: Using the Power of Your Sacred Wounds to Discover Your Soul’s Perfection (Sounds True, 2011). Second edition to be released in June!

Imagine opening a book that told the story of your life—and suddenly you realized that the painful parts held the key to knowing yourself as completely whole, well, and good. As many of my students have found, this is the transformative process that we can experience in the Akashic Records, an energetic archive of the soul and its journey. With the Healing Through the Akashic Records book and companion CD set, I share how we can use our wounds—the limiting behaviors or ideas that we hold about ourselves—as a path to inner peace.

Although our healing work takes place in the spiritual realm, this process involves clarifying our difficulties, gaining insights into them, and arriving at real-world solutions that we can bring into our everyday lives. I reveal my unique three-step process that can be used to tap into this infinite resource. Readers are invited to gain a soul-level perspective on their wounds and unlock their potential for growth by exploring:

  • How to access the Akashic Records using the Pathway Prayer Process©
  • Tips for identifying their primary sacred wound—the hurtful event, person, or circumstance that is holding you back
  • Strategies for liberating themselves from old ideas and limiting patterns
  • Tools for making choices aligned with their most authentic self for their highest good
  • Three ways to activate the “Ascension Matrix” to help them realize their hopes and dreams

How to Read the Akashic Records: Accessing the Archive of the Souls and Its Journey (Sounds True, 2009)

For thousands of years, mystics, masters, and sages from various world traditions have read the Akashic Records.  Once reserved for a “spiritually gifted” few, this infinite source of wisdom and healing energy is now available for readers everywhere, to answer questions big and small. How can I find freedom from my past? What are my life purposes? With How to Read the Akashic Records, I offered the first book of its kind to help navigate these timeless “Records of the Soul.” In these pages, I teach the reader:

  • The Pathway Prayer Process—a “password” for admittance into the Records
  • How to work with your “MTLOs”—Masters, Teachers, and Loved Ones—for assistance within the Records
  • Insightful tips to glean the most critical information, whether you’re reading for yourself, other individuals, or even your pet

The time has come for us to be empowered, to be our own spiritual authorities, and to access the illuminating, rich source of the Records directly. And that is why I wrote this first book!



Sheila ~ You’ve just returned from teaching in China. What was that like?

Linda ~ Over the past 40+ years on the Path, I’ve repeatedly experienced the multi-dimensional, multi-directional reality of being one with the whole of creation. Throughout this Akashic Adventure, I was haunted by this stunning pearl of truth. We really are One.


From the moment of my arrival, I felt “at home.” All the years of negative political propaganda in my back pocket dissolved in the loving presence of the infinitely gracious Chinese people. It was deeply moving and emotional for me as I met one awakening soul after another, sharing a stunning awareness of our immutable, indivisible, intimate, and infinite connection.



Sheila ~ You offer personal consultations/readings. What kind of services do you provide and how can someone schedule an appointment?

Linda ~ I offer three types of consultations. All are confidential, of course. Appointments can be scheduled at

Personal Consultations/Readings

The primary experience of being in the Akashic Record is one of being both known and loved. Being in the richness of the Record can help us in every area of life, from creative endeavors to relationships of every variety. Being in this non-judgmental dimension fosters greater loving, compassion, and harmony with life. For some of us, there is a dramatic shift in the senses and sensations, but for most of us, it is much more subtle. A combination of clarity, emotional stillness, and illumination characterize this dimension. Most people prepare a list of questions for a Reading, covering the main areas of their lives: health, work, relationships, and so on.

Our purpose together in an Akashic Records Consultation (also called a Reading) is to explore who you are and the issues you face in this life, from the perspective of your soul, a chance to be seen and known in the Light of truth and love. Glimpsing our present-day life from the altitude of the Akasha, activates the infinite love within, accelerating our ability to love ourselves unconditionally. We begin with the Pathway Prayer©, some parts of which are said out loud, and some silently. The Pathway Prayer Process© provides a reliable and deliberate way to move into and access the consciousness of the Record responsibly, in a disciplined, conscious manner. Readings generally last 60 minutes.

Sheila ~ What’s next for Dr. Linda Howe?

Linda ~ I have two more teaching trips scheduled for China this year, and four for 2017. I love to travel and experience new cultures and am exploring additional international destinations. Here in the U.S., I continue to offer in-person and online classes, as well as an on-demand format.



Sheila ~ Any positive words of advice you’d like to share?

Linda ~ This is a lifetime like no other!  Each one of us is here with unique gifts, talents, and abilities to share. This is the opportunity of lifetimes to step up, give more, love more, and let your soul take the lead! You are the only “you” that will ever exist—and who you are as a person is the ideal human being to bring your soul’s purposes to life!
