Just lately, the subject of past lives and the need to both heal old traumas and reconnect to our ancient wisdom has been coming up rather too frequently to be ignored. I’ll be doing workshops on this at the College of Psychic Studies, but if you aren’t able to join me, then you may like to try journeying to ancient wisdom for yourself. This can be done by attuning to the Akashic Record and observing the past, rather than immersing yourself in it. Even so, wherever possible have a sensible friend alongside to help you heal and reframe a situation just in case, and to call you back – but not pull you out of a situation. Passing through death, paradoxically, helps you to release from a life and transmute its energies, assisted of course by our crystal friends. But that’s not the object of these journeys. They are intended to reconnect you to ancient wisdom that will help with the evolution of consciousness in this present time.
The Akashic Records are an on-going record of the journey of the soul, the evolution of this and other worlds, and the future of All that Is. In this view, anyone living now has probably lived on Earth before – and will live again, possibly on Earth but most definitely in other realms. Fortunately we don’t have to understand how the field can exist nor how it works in order to be able to utilise it for moving around in time. While everyone ‘sees’ the Record in their own way, the underlying experience is always the same. It is a connection in to what we can call the wisdom of the cosmic mind or the cosmic memory field. Successful reading of the Akashic Record needs practice and becomes much easier as time goes by.
In my experience, the Akashic Record is a not a record of a fixed fate but rather an outline map of a soul’s journey with all the potentialities that opens up – and from mine and my clients’ experiences, it goes way out into the future with myriad possibilities opening up as well as accessing the past. The Record is all around us, and time as we know it on Earth, does not really exist. By tuning into that ‘past’ we can bring information and skills into the present lifetime whether or not we were actually present in that timeframe. We can view the Akashic Record as a hologram of all that is and might be – it is not in any one place as it permeates our whole universe but we can nevertheless access it as though it were indeed a Hall of Records. Our souls are connected to this hologram, each carrying a small piece of the hologram within that contains the whole. One of the easiest ways to read the Record is simple to hold a piece of Chrysotile or Cradle of Humankind (Jeni has some for sale on www.angeladditions.co.uk) and ask it to assist. But you can take journeys to specific periods in the past with the aid of particular crystal tools too.
The causal vortex chakra links to the Akashic Record. It is a tubelike structure rather than the usual flat-plane form taken by a chakra. You can use this chakra to ‘pull’ the Record closer to you for ease of connection.

To close the causal vortex
Hold Flint, Hematite, Petrified Wood or Smoky Quartz over the site.
Before embarking on any of the journeys below, open your causal vortex chakra and ground it with a Flint, Hematite or Smoky Quartz placed between your feet.
Certain crystals have strong links with earlier civilisations and assist in reading those sources of ancient wisdom. Holding the stone can transport you to that timeline, or to read the Akashic Record of your previous incarnations in that place. With just a handful of crystals, you can work your way back through time to four major spiritual learning sources, ancient Briton, Egypt, Atlantis and Lemuria. The tools are:
This stone forms the central ring at Stonehenge. It is a unique ‘home-grown’ UK healing crystals, coming from an ancient quarry in the Preseli Mountains in Wales. Combined with chalk, Bluestone acts as a battery, earthing and grounding spiritual energy and power.
An excellent visionary stone for all past life exploration, Preseli Bluestone specifically assists in tracking your Celtic heritage but also accesses the Akashic Record and earth-energies. It is particularly useful for soul and power retrieval, effortlessly reaching way back into the past. It’s the perfect dreaming stone, bringing answers quickly. Preseli Bluestone assists in accessing spiritual information and practical metaphysical knowledge. (See, Crystal Bible Vol.II and Sue and Si Lilly’s book Preseli Bluestone: healing stone of the Ancestors).
This journey lets you access the magic and wisdom of the Druids, reconnect to your previous lives in the Celtic world, and reclaim the knowledge you find there.
Before undertaking the journey, ensure that you will not be disturbed. Switch off the phone and wrap yourself in a blanket. Lying down makes it easier to place the crystal on the soma chakra, but comfort is more important than position. A drumming CD helps you move into an altered state of consciousness. Orientate yourself north–south or east–west depending on the magnetic alignment of your Bluestone, whichever feels most comfortable.
Settle yourself comfortably and close your eyes. Hold your Bluestone in your hands for a few moments while taking deep, slow breaths. As you breathe out let go of any tension you may be feeling. As you breathe in feel yourself relaxing deeper and deeper into your connection with the stone and the ancient sacred Earth beneath you.
When you feel ready, place the Bluestone on the soma chakra at your hairline, just above your third eye. Without opening your eyes, look up to your third eye as this helps images to form.
Feel the stone lifting and transporting you to the Preseli Mountains as they rise from the bedrock of their Welsh home. The Bluestone knows the way home and its powerful electromagnetic properties teleport you to the rocky outcrop at the top of the mountain. If you are visual, you may see the mountain coming into view with the sea sparkling beyond it. If you are kinaesthetic (feeling-orientated), you will sense movement and rushing air.
You land in front of the basin of the sacred spring. Dip your hands into the healing water and drink. In your mind’s eye, picture yourself dipping your Bluestone in the water and replacing it on your soma chakra.
Now find a place to sit among the rocks. Be aware of the currents and vibrations that surround you as you sit in this sacred, liminal place at the joining of two worlds: the known and the unknown. It is pre-dawn; the sun has not yet risen in the east but the sky is lightening.
As you look out over the land you can see the Earth’s grid and the connections to all its sacred sites rolling and spiralling out before you. If any of the lines look ragged or broken, see them magically heal themselves so that the Earth’s currents can flow freely once again.
When you feel ready, follow the energetic path that leads southeast to Stonehenge. Let the stone lift you and transport you as before. As you fly over the land you will see the River Seven shining below you. Pass over it and continue east toward the circle on the flat plain: Stonehenge. When you land the site is complete, mysterious, sacred. Walk the ritual way: follow the cursus, until you reach the entrance to the temple. Ask permission to enter.
Walk into the center of the shadowy temple and place your stone with its healing water on the altar stone.
As you make your way to stand in the center of the Bluestone Horseshoe facing the Heel Stone, all around you music plays. The rocks ring out. Voices sound. The people have gathered with you to greet the midsummer dawn.
Suddenly a beam flashes down the center of the temple, striking you in the heart and radiating through your whole body. A roar goes up. The light of the sun has arrived. You are fertilized, made new, healed, reborn.
When you are ready to leave, the stone brings you back to your body. The silver cord attached to your soma chakra reels you back. Settle yourself comfortably in your body. Breathe deeply, stretch your fingers and toes, and then get up slowly. Picture a bubble of protection around you. Feel the connection your feet make to the Earth. Notice how much more in tune with the Earth you feel as you walk lightly upon it, how your consciousness has expanded, and how your senses are more finely attuned to the beauty around you.
Recording your experience in a crystal journal will awaken insights and connections to your ancient knowing and enable you to track the effect on your own well-being. [Extracted fro, Crystals and Sacred Sites]
Found in and around Aswan in Upper Egypt, Nubian Temple stones carry the energy of ancient Egypt and the spiritual wisdom that was to be found in the temples there. This stone helps you to reconnect to your former spiritual initiations. Golden Nubian Temple Quartz has a particularly high vibration that restores the whole system to energetic wholeness and optimum functioning and potentizes healing on all levels. It is a catalyst for profound spiritual activation and creates a multi-dimensional energy grid around our planet. The stone purifies, aligns and re-energises the chakras and rapidly releases ancient emotional conditioning held in the solar plexus and the outer energy bodies including those that are only now becoming accessible as the frequencies shift. Such bodies may well need cleaning before integration – racial or ancestral as well as soul toxicity. It harnesses the personal will held in that chakra with that of divine will so that the Higher Self becomes the guiding light rather than the ego. This stone facilitates making profound changes in your life with minimum fuss and effort.
Working with a Nubian Temple stone has been described as being like watching the Discovery Channel. Use the picture to connect to the energy as my source in Egypt has been temporarily disconnected until the situation there is such that I can return to collect more.
Playing Stephen Halpern’s ‘Initiation’, recorded in the Great Pyramid, enhances this experience.
Gaze at the picture of the Nubian Temple stone until you can still see it with your eyes closed. Then breathe gently and ask that the magical Hennu boat will come to collect you for your journey. You will hear a rushing of wings and feel the wind on your face as the boat settles in front of you. Merit Aten will invite you to board. As you settle yourself down, the boat takes off again flying high in the air. Below you, you can see the Earth turning until the three great pyramids of Egypt come into view. The boat lowers itself until it is skimming the surface of the River Nile. It is moving swiftly upstream, passing temple after temple as it goes. Finally, ahead of you, you see the rushing rapids where the river narrows to pass as a cataract between high rocky walls. Beyond is a lake and on this lake sits a temple, tranquil in the evening light. You have arrived at Philae, the temple of the beloved.
Merit Aten takes you by the hand and leads you from the boat and in through the great gates which have opened before you. She takes you into the innermost sanctuary where the Lady Isis awaits, Wrapping you in her veils, the Lady whispers the secrets of the land of Khem to you. She reminds you of your initiations in her temples, reactivates your inner knowing, and showing you the way to the stars.
When it is time to return, Merit Aten once again leads you to the hennu boat. It takes off with a mighty beating of wings, bearing you swiftly back down the river. At the pyramids, it again rises high into the air, bringing you safely home. Step out of the boat and ground yourself firmly into your own time and place. Stamping your foot to seal the portal and anchor you in your body once more.
A combination of green Serpentine and purple Stichtite, Atlantasite accesses past lives in Atlantis, reconnecting to the ancient wisdom and encouraging completion of projects set in motion at that time. It shows how great civilisations can fall when powers are misused to interfere with the natural world. Stimulating spiritual evolution, it assists those who misused their spiritual powers at that, or any other, time to recognise right use of power and the true nature of spiritual empowerment. Atlantasite clears and aligns all the chakras. It is particularly helpful for bringing the Age of Aquarius and its promise of ascension and enlightenment into manifestation.
It may seem paradoxical to use a Lemurian Seed crystal skull to guide this Atlantean journey, but Gwenda particularly asked to do so, saying that she would link the wisdom of these two ancient societies as Atlantis existed under the waves while Lemurian was above them, and rose from the waves as Lemuria fell beneath them. All part of the great cycle of civilisations rising and falling, but the knowledge and wisdom remaining.
Playing Atlantis Rising can enhance this journey.
Ground yourself and open your alta major chakra.
Gaze at Gwenda until you can feel her connect with your third eye and you connect to her.
Holding your Atlantasite, ask the stone to take you back to connect to Atlantis in whichever stage of its incarnation on the planet is most appropriate for you. Ask Gwenda to show you the learnings and knowledge that will be most helpful to you and to humanity in the present time. Gwenda may assist you in recognising the part you have to play in Earth’s current evolution and pitfalls to watch out for.
When it is time to return, put down your Atlantasite, cover your third eye to close the connection to Gwenda. Slowly stand up, move around and reconnect yourself to the earth beneath your feet and to the present time.
Lemurian crystals are deeply stepped and etched on alternative faces. They are found in a sandy bed in Brazil unattached to the matrix and are, therefore, believed to have been used in Lemuria where certain information was coded into them to be accessed in the present time. Lemurians open a stargate, an energy portal, and access past lives and experiences from way back. The etched markings can be read like a book. Lemurians work well with Halite/Hanksite which cleanses and purifies any negative energies from Lemuria (it can be cathartic!) and transforms them into positive memories.
Dreamsicle Lemurian, the guide for this journey, a rare and very special. They have a strawberries-and-custard coating. Many are deep pink inside and they are a step up in vibration from the beautiful Strawberry Lemurians. Scrumptious. I have a unique Dreamsicle ‘tower’ that particularly wanted to be your guide for this journey, see below.
Lemurian Seed crystal
This journey takes you back to a time in the evolution of the soul when it was ‘lightly clothed in skin’. A period when the vibrations of Earth were much less dense and consciousness could move around more freely.
Ground yourself and hold your Lemurian Seed crystal.
Gaze at the Dreamsicle tower with softly focused eyes until you can feel it pulling you into itself. Allow your consciousness to explore what you find there. Ask to be shown what is most relevant to you for the present time.
When you are ready to return, open your eyes, deliberately move your focus away from the Dreamsicle, put down your crystal, and stretch yourself. Fully experience being back in your body, which may feel heavy. Remind yourself that this body is your soul’s home for the present incarnation. Get up, walk barefoot on the earth if possible to reconnect yourself to the planet.
