What if your problems were serving your purpose?

There are three approaches to problems:

  1. You ignore them. Or try to ignore them. But what you don’t know can hurt you; and you actually know your problems despite your effort to ignore them. 
  2. You try to solve them. If you are in this camp, you probably have read books (many books!) on self-help / personal development. You may even have attended seminars and workshops. So you know what to do. Then why do you still have problems? 
  3. This is an approach few know, much less practice: You understand the fundamental nature of life’s problems and accept yours. This transforms problems into opportunities. 

The third approach may sound crazy and absurd. Most people spend many, many years trying the first and second approaches before they finally figure out personal development can do only so much.

Because personal development is about the small self. The good news, however, is you are not the self you think you are. You are a soul currently living in a body.

What are the Akashic Records?

The Akashic Records are the energetic records of all souls about their past lives, the present lives, and possible future lives. Each soul has its Akashic Records, like a series of books with each book representing one lifetime. The Hall (or Library) of the Akashic Records is where all souls’ Akashic Records are stored energetically. In other words, the information is stored in the Akashic field (also called zero point field). The Akashic Records, however, are not a dry compilation of events. They also contain our collective wisdom. 

You can read your Akashic Records. It takes some practice, but you don't need to be a guru. (The how-to is shared free on this website; it is an excerpt from the book.) The real question is: how do you utilize the information?

The Akashic Records are a great resource, but it's only a resource. How you utilize it in your life is up to you. After assisting many clients with her professional "Akashic Record Reading" service (the term is increasingly popular these days, but Akemi was the one who set up the original namesake website; the URL now directs to this website), she realized the need to explain the fundamental purpose of life and how things work in this world of phenomena toward this purpose. 

Your problems are not happening in a haphazard manner and they are not meaningless roadblocks. Your life is working even when you don't think so, and you can move through your life with less resistance when you understand it. On the other hand, when you don't have the proper reference points, psychic readings can become yet another attempt of problem-solving. (Do you find yourself consulting psychics repeatedly?) 

Why We Are Born: Remembering Our Purpose through the Akashic Records, helps you see through the veil. No more running around trying to fix your life; let insignificant problems resolve on their own and have fun with the real challenges as you'd have fun with creative expressions. 

Here are a few testimonials from her former clients, just to show the powerfulness of utilizing the wisdom of the Akashic Records. Please keep in mind that you can do the same for yourself. (Akemi is no longer taking clients. Also, she has discontinued her blog Yes to Me / Real Life Spirituality because she wants to focus on writing books.)

“I signed up for an Akashic Record Reading after my husband raved about his. Since he is pretty much the Most Practical Living Human, I figured if it was good enough for him, it’s good enough for me. I was mildly skeptical, but I didn’t want to be unsupportive, so I tried to have an open mind.

Honestly, in the month or so after having our records read, it felt like our lives fell apart all at once. Whole sections of our families disowned us with seemingly no provocation. My biggest client very nicely fired me for no real reason. Another company I was doing work for went out of business, totally unexpectedly. My blog — which is my livelihood — came under major public attack. It was unbelievable. The crap really hit the fan.

BUT. In the context of the things that Akemi and I talked about, it all made sense. All of those relationships that were toxic and draining — gone. All of the clients I wasn’t happy about working with — gone. All the fears that I had associated with my career and my public image and all that stuff — it all just got, I don’t know, dealt with. It was like God or the Divine or the Whatever You Want To Call It said, OK. Now that you’re ready, I’ll put things in order for you.

I don’t go in for stuff like this. I get freaked out by things I don’t understand. But honestly, I’ll pay whatever Akemi charges because it worked. My life is so much clearer. I didn’t realize that living my life was like trying to walk in quicksand until I wasn’t in the quicksand anymore. And it’s wonderful.” ~ N.D., Canada


“Dear Akemi,
Almost a year ago to the day I had an Akashic Record Reading and I can tell you that my life is nothing like it was just one year ago. I’ve been meaning to write to you about the profound changes that have taken place in my life so it seems like now is the time to do just that.

I’ve always been quite intentional in life, I truly love life, people and this planet to the core and I suppose as a result I’ve been able to move through this world as I need to, with love, honesty and clarity to do things that some would deem amazing, liberating. However, around the age of 27 after coming back to Canada from working in Africa, I began to live by the conventions of society and thus moved further and further away from my true self.

As the years went by I started to feel increasingly ”stuck” (the only way I can describe it), some would call this ‘normal’ existence but I knew better. Fast-forward nine years to when I had my reading with you. I was in a job where I was so miserable and I knew that I was not reaching my full potential as a human being.

In the Akashic Record Reading in Nov. 08 you mentioned there were people at work that hated me, you also mentioned the 26-27 year old milestone. I was kind of surprised to hear about the people at work but shortly after it became apparent who hated me - my boss started to harass me and it only got worse and worse. I started to have anxiety, digestive issues, and insomnia as a result. After coming very close to being in a terrible car accident in Dec. 08, things really started to shift for me. I took Jan. 09 off due to stress and took the time to re-evaluate.

I quit my job at the end of March 09, moved, cleared out of my life in all aspects from relationships to ’stuff’ and past emotional baggage. I felt I just needed a full house cleaning starting with every cell of my body to my physical space, job…..everything. In May 09 I started a new job that was way less stressful with a fantastic boss and a 4 day workweek that involved work that I actually enjoyed. Was it my dream job, I would say No, but it was a significant improvement over my previous situation.

In July 09, the issues over the past year manifested physically and I became increasingly ill. I didn’t see this as a bad thing, just a sign that there was more work to be done. I finished my contract, and am taking time off (Sept. 09 to now) to focus on deep healing. Natural healers came my way, with their help, self-care, time off, and spiritual practice I can say that I’m feeling way better than I’ve felt in years.

Needless to say, I’m now so at ease with my life, in my body, mind and soul - I feel whole. Not a coincidence that a few months back I met the love of my life (on a River on a warm sunny day…). We are both astounded to have found each other and a love so deep and profound that we are truly awe struck. We speak of starting a family together, an idea that was once stuffed into a little box and buried somewhere very deep after my seperation and divorce 4 years ago.

I’m in such a great place, I don’t even have the words to describe how great I feel, and how wonderful life truly is. I’m able to cherish these precious moments and fully accept the gifts that have been offered to me. I would like for people to know that life is so meant to be happy and joy filled, we are not here to suffer. We are here to experience only wonder, abundance, and joy.

I want to extend gratitude to you for helping me to become “unstuck” so I can once again live a life that is truly and utterly full…!

With greatest sincerity,” ~ D.D., Canada


“It was a sudden intuition to do Akemi’s Akashic Record Reading, around the time of my birthday. I used to get astrology transit readings annually around that time, but have not done that in awhile. But I had this strong feeling to do this after starting to read Akemi’s blog, and I have learned not to ignore such intuitions, even when I don’t know why.

I was expecting more a ‘past-life regression’ type thing, where she would tell me a lot of my past lives, and since I have had those before, on the conscious level I didn’t see what the value would be. However, it was very different. She focused in on one past life, and a particular energetic problem that had been created in that life, and on how to clear it. I actually had been aware of a certain residual energy like the one she described in my awareness for some time, and was unsure how to release it. The meditation form I practice surfaces such things, so my own feeling is that this particular ‘karma’ (which is what these energy formations are in my own lexicon) had ‘risen to the top’, and I was drawn to her reading in order to help release it.

She also mentioned specific physical issues that I had not told her about as being related to this, and sure enough, after doing the clearing exercises, these problems disappeared! ” ~ Lisa E., California
