The word “Akashic” is derived from the Sanskrit word Aakaash meaning "aether" which is beyond the concept of space and time. A collective (Hall of) energetic record which keeps track of every occurring thought, word, and action of the past, the present, and possible future lives of all consciousness. Each soul therefore has one and contributes to it. And with each lifetime our experiences add to it, which in return gets imprinted on the Akasha or the ethers.

When accessing the future, the events are known, however the responses are not set in its outcome, they are only indicative.
