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 http://akashicstudies.com/ 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 http://lindahowe.com/personal-consultations/

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.

Akashic Coaching Through the Akashic Records with Dr. Linda Howe:
Spiritual Guidance for Worldly Success

Coaching may be scheduled as a single one-hour session, but the three-session package is recommended. One-on-one Spiritual Guidance for Worldly Success Coaching can make a world of difference. Over a three-session series, you can:

  • See yourself and the challenges you face from the perspective of your soul. Identify the difficulties and solutions through the eyes of Light and Love.
  • Explore the connection between your human talents, abilities, and accomplishments and your soul’s purposes so that you can consciously live your destiny.
  • Examine the relationship between your values and your contribution to the world.
  • Enhance the partnership between your heartfelt values and your natural abilities, liberating you to be your most authentic self in the world!

Akashic Coaching includes a free copy of “Living the Heart of Light” mp3 class.

Certification Classes with Dr. Linda Howe, One-on-One

In addition to classes being offered in-person, on-line, and on-demand, each of the five Core Class Certifications can be completed as three one-on-one telephone sessions:

  1. Practitioner Certification
  2. Advanced Practitioner Certification
  3. Healing Through the Akashic Records Certification
  4. Discover Your Soul’s Path Certification
  5. Manifesting Your Soul’s Purposes Certification

 

 

 

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!

Interview with GreenTara

Today I’m welcoming clairvoyant and spiritual advisor, GreenTara. Thank you, GreenTara for stopping by!

 

 

Can you tell us a little about yourself?

I’m a Mom, a sister, daughter, granddaughter, aunt, friend, foe, partner, co-worker, acquaintance, professional, and like everyone else I wear a mask. I wear a mask to hide my true self, my true feelings, my true thoughts and my true appearance. Until recently, I felt as though I was constantly swimming against the current. Struggling to find my place in society and life, hitting road block after road block and experiencing one disappointment after another. Financial struggles, loss of employment, issues with women, issues with men, among a plethora of other struggles. An overall feeling of disempowerment. It was hard to identify my strengths and gifts.

I prefer not to share too much about myself personally out of fear of the physical unknown. Just know that I am an ordinary human being who experiences the same joys, fears, trials, and other life events the same way anyone else does. I am vulnerable and strong, I am shy and outgoing, I am happy and sad. I am not looking to gain anything other than the ability to help other souls in their journey.

I come from a long line of spiritually gifted women, although I am probably the first to open up to the criticism and potential ridicule of an endeavour like this. The hard part for me, is talking about myself and putting myself out there advertising my services. Becoming GreenTara has allowed me to finally become who I was meant to become. It has pushed me out of my comfort zone to confront insecurity, fear, potential criticism, while at the same time allowing me to use my divine gifts, experience enlightenment and spiritual transcendence. I have not done this alone. I am fortunate to have the unconditional support of family and friends and a partner who has encouraged me to use my gifts. I am attempting to remove my mask, as difficult as that may be and I am making it my purpose to help others embrace themselves and join me in removing their masks.

 

 

How did you discover your abilities?

My abilities have always been there. As a little girl, I used to “make up” stories about people that I would encounter. These stories would play like a movie in my head and I always assumed that everyone else was able to do the same thing. I doubted my uniqueness. Aside from my never ending interest in all things spiritual or occult in nature, I pushed these thoughts aside and avoided talking too much about them. The older I became and the more life I experienced, the more awareness I had of my empathic and intuitive abilities. It wasn’t until I experienced a time in my life of pure devastation and was left an empty shell that I truly began to embrace my gifts. I had to be completely broken down, with a feeling of complete emptiness and nothingness before I was able to experience my metamorphosis and allow my soul to authenticate itself.

This started during my lowest time when conventional medical means of providing relief just didn’t seem to work and in fact, worsened the situation. I sought the help of a very special woman who was a gifted healer who focused on Reiki and shaman healing modalities. She not only helped me through this transition period, but she recognized my gifts and guided me in my current direction.

I started to read as many books I could get my hands on, attend workshops, goddess meditations, healing circles and dove head first into the spiritual community. I learned about the Akashic Records after having a reading done and ended up meeting a woman who has become my mentor. I had finally found the vehicle for how to use my gifts to help people. I realized that these stories that were playing in my head when I would look at people were in fact, real stories. Nothing in my life has come easier or more naturally for me. I continue to grow every day spiritually, trusting more and more in my empathic and intuitive abilities. There is nothing more satisfying than the feedback I receive from my clients about the tremendous amount of relief, understanding and completeness that floods them after a reading. There is no greater gift than one that gives back.

 

 

What is intuitive healing?

I’m sure there are many different definitions and thoughts on what intuitive healing is. My interpretation and implementation of intuitive healing is by using the senses to identify energy imbalances in the body. More specifically, the emotional body. I believe that people begin to heal when they become aware of things, especially when it comes to things that they feel, but are unable to explain. I use my intuitive instincts to help people become aware of the root causes for their imbalances, issues and unhealthy patterns of behaviour. When this awareness happens, people can take responsibility for their circumstances through understanding and acceptance and from there the true healing begins.

 

 

You refer to the Akashic Records when conducting your readings. In your words, what are the Akashic Records and how do you access them?

The Akashic Records are basically the energetic data base of the soul. Every soul has it’s own record and that record contains every choice that has ever been made by that soul. A choice refers to every thought, feeling, action and intention. Kind of like that stuff on our computers that we wish we could delete permanently, but are forever stored in the virtual information super highway and have a way of creeping up, resurfacing and wreaking havoc on our lives. I access the records by shifting my consciousness while in a meditative state or slight trance and reciting an ancient prayer to bring complete awareness to the records. From that point, I use a pendulum to dowse for answers to specific questions and scribble down any impressions, thoughts, feelings, sounds or smells that come to me. I use the same method while cooking my famous spaghetti sauce, but unfortunately this method hasn’t been as successful when it comes time to boil the pasta. Finally, I allow myself to sit back and watch the specific stories of past lives that are still influencing people in their lives today. I can tell you that there are times that you would not enjoy being a fly on the wall!!

When I access the Akashic Records, I take myself through a self guided visualization in which I envision a massive, beautiful, ornately carved wooden door. I walk through the door and experience a feeling of inner peace that is indescribable. The room looks like one giant, angelic library containing infinite numbers of old books. In the centre of the room is a table and it is on this table that I lay the record of my client for the reading. I do not access the records of anyone without their prior consent. The most important part of this room are the two Akashic Record Guides that help me to locate the soul’s information. I could spend hours in the Akashic Records and actually have to set an alarm to rouse me from my meditative state as I have been known to spend more time than I realized I was spending or had meant to. The warm, peaceful feeling and access to whatever information I desire is incredibly alluring. I access the records outside of a client’s reading for personal reasons, more specifically I look for information to help me on my spiritual path.

 

 

Being an empath, what methods do you practice to protect yourself from any negative energy that you may pick up while doing a reading?

To be honest with you, I don’t try to protect myself from negative energy because it’s this negative energy that’s contributing to the disruption in my client’s life. While I’m meditating and dowsing for information about a client’s past lives, their past life stories play like a movie in which I’m standing right there only not visible to the souls present. I can feel the fear, heartbreak, anguish, hurt and other emotions and physical sensations. I need to be able to allow myself to feel this in order to accurately portray the particular event that I’m witnessing. After every reading, I perform an energy clearing on both the client and myself in the form of a ritual and a prayer.

In day to day life, I believe that our abilities as empaths are truly attributed to having a higher consciousness of the oneness of us all. We are able to project and reflect the thoughts and feelings of others because these thoughts and feelings are something that we have experienced before, in either this lifetime or most likely past lifetimes. We cannot identify with something that is not within our frame of reference. If we try too hard to block this consciousness then we are denying both ourselves and others the opportunity to heal.

I recharge myself by spending time alone, in meditation. I smudge my home often, using locally grown, Northwestern Ontario sage and infuse my home with Reiki energy. I carry crystals on me, in my purse and display them strategically around my house. I practice daily mantras, in particular the GreenTara mantra which is a mantra of compassion and action, and calls GreenTara as a protector who comes to our aid to relieve us of physical, emotional and spiritual suffering. “Om Tare Tuttare Ture Soha”.

 

 

What are your views about the paranormal?

I have always had an intense interest in the paranormal. As a child, I devoured Stephen King and other scary novels, watched every horror movie I could get my hands on, played with Ouija boards and was obsessed with haunted houses, alien abduction stories and any stories coming from people with experiences with ghosts. When I was younger I even used to try and hold seances by candlelight. I am to this day, always on the hunt for anything considered to be haunted and have many haunted places on my bucket list to visit, however I am much too aware of things now to be brave enough to even attempt a seance or play with a Ouija board. Nowadays, with the readings I am doing, I am clearing my clients of present and past life entity attachments should they happen to be carrying one around with them.

 

 

In your bio on your website you mention “soul level”. What does that mean?

When I refer to soul level, I am referring to a soul’s divine attributes as they were at the soul’s very inception. It’s pure, clean, virginal, untouched and unsullied. As time goes on, we become watered down and influenced by society, our families, religions, friends among others. We put on a mask, but forget the cape and become what we’re expected to become or what we think we should become and over the time of many lifetimes, we forget who we truly are. We become involved in a fight against our divine nature which leaves us feeling disillusioned, dissatisfied and uninspired. Embracing the divine gifts we have at soul level leads us to a life of completeness and abundance.

 

 

What are the types of services that you offer and can you give a brief description of each one?

I offer a number of different types of readings depending on the needs and interests of the client.

Complete Soul Profile

This is sort of a two part reading and the most popular type of reading I offer. With this reading, I access the Akashic Records to find out my client’s soul’s original energetic qualities. I also determine what kinds of issues from their past lives are still causing a disturbance in their lives today and then go right back to the past life when the choice was made. Through conscious awareness of the choice that was made, the client is able to be cleared of the energy that is blocking them. We also explore the client’s divine gifts and discuss how they could be used to create better conditions in their life today. This reading is offered in time blocks of 60 minutes, 90 minutes and 120 minutes. The additional time is to allow us to explore more in-depth information and answer more questions that may arise.

You can also request a Complete Soul Profile on a child or on a spouse.

Akashic Records Reading

During this type of reading, I access the Akashic Records while the client is on the phone and I answer questions that the client may have based on the information that I receive. Most of the time, this type of reading will relate past life events to what may be going on with the client in present day. This reading is offered in blocks of 30 minutes, 60 minutes, 90 minutes or 120 minutes depending on how deep and how much information the client would like.

Relationship Reading

This is similar to the Complete Soul Profile only it involves more than one person. This helps both parties to understand one another at soul level. This can be a romantic or intimate relationship, a parent and child, siblings, friends etc. During this type of reading we can explore the past lives that you’ve lived together. This may help to make sense of any disharmony, conflict and issues that may be arising or have already arisen. This reading can also help clients understand each other’s divine gifts and how to support one another in life.

Akashic Meditation

An Akashic Meditation is a guided meditation in which I guide you into your own records and assist you in exploring your own story and past lives. This reading is only offered in a 30 minute block of time as that’s just about the maximum amount of time that someone new to the Akashic Records would be able to spend at one time.

Spiritual and Self Love Coaching

When it comes to Spiritual and Self Love Coaching, we access the information from the Akashic Records to design an individual path of manifesting, transcendence and transformation. This is all client driven depending on their area of intention and desired area of abundance. I always start the Coaching process with a Complete Soul Profile so we can use this soul level information to assist us on this journey. This is offered in one hour sessions and a package of four is offered at a reduced rate.

 

 

For those who would like to have a reading, how would they be able to contact you?

Telepathic means are usually the best way. Focus your intention on getting a hold of me and expect a call within twenty four hours!

Kidding…

There are various “contact me” links on my website www.thegreentarawellness.com, you can send me an email to thegreentara@outlook.com or you can contact me through the facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/GreenTara/869335769809679?ref=hl

 

 

Any positive words of enlightenment you’d care to share?

Be brave and take off the mask. Take responsibility for the choices in your life that have lead you to your current circumstance and become the Creator of your own Experience. Trust your instincts. If a potential choice gives you a feeling of lightness then that is the right choice. If a potential choice makes you feel heavy inside then you might want to explore a different choice. Lastly, if you’re experiencing poltergeist activity in your home, you might want to consider calling the Ghostbusters.

Edgar Cayce & The Akashic Records

There are people of all walks of life throughout history that have claimed to have the gift of foretelling the future. People like Michel de Nostradamus and Ellen G. White, but the one that really catches my attention is Edgar Cayce. Edgar Cayce was a devout Christian who was born March 18, 1877 in Hopkinsville, Kentucky and died January 3, 1945 in Virginia Beach, Virginia at the respectful age of 67. He was a prophet who supposedly had the ability to tap into the Akashic Records. These intangible records are said to be a collection of mystical knowledge that’s been encoded on an ethereal plane of existence referred to as the astral plane. The Akashic Records are thought to include every single experience known to mankind since the beginning of time. These records are supposedly pretty intense because according to them, nothing is hidden. Every minute detail of our existence is said to be imprinted within them. However, there is no scientific validation that these records actually exist.

Edgar Cayce would often refer to the Akashic Records during many of his readings. While conducting the sessions, the people for whom he was doing the readings usually would not be present. Their questions, ranging from personal to health, would be given to Cayce. He would then lie down and enter a trance where he would access the Akashic Records. His wife, Gertrude Evans Cayce, guided the readings for him. Unfortunately, Cayce’s earlier readings were not documented, but according to an article in the Birmingham Post-Herald released in 1922, it stated that Cayce gave over 8,000 readings followed by an addition of up to 14,000 more readings after that date.

Edgar Cayce claimed that he didn’t remember anything mentioned during his sessions once he was out of the trance-like state. He believed that our unconscious minds have access to information that our conscious minds do not. Not only could Edgar Cayce tap into the Akashic Records, he also claimed to have the ability to perform astral projection, which is the ability to travel in astral form outside the physical body. Many people refer to this phenomenon as an out-of-body experience (OBE). Cayce was considered as a prophet who reported to have foreseen major events like both World Wars, the Great Depression and even the assassination of the 44th president of the United States, John F. Kennedy.

Skeptics believe that Cayce gathered his information for his predictions from the articles and books that he read. Skeptics also criticize Cayce’s support for alternative medicine, which they view as quackery. Edgar Cayce became quite the celebrity before his death. He was even known as the most documented psychic of the 20th century.
