Akashic Record Readings
Each Soul, from the moment of its physical origination, has a set of Akashic Records. The Akashic Records act as a database whereby every thought, word or action is stored as an energetic event. Hence, everything about you, including all information about current, past (extending to previous lifetimes), are stored here. It also goes to show that your Akashic Records contain the information of why you are facing certain blocks and restrictions now. The library of Akashic Records is not on the physical plane but rather, it exists on the etheric level. You can either access it on your own in a meditative or very relaxed state, or engage an Intuitive Consultant to aid you in the retrieval of your records. Source: akashicsecrets.com.

Astrology is the study of the influence that distant cosmic objects, usually stars and planets, have on human lives. The position of the sun, stars, moon and planets at the time of people’s birth (not their conception) is said to shape their personality, affect their romantic relationships and predict their economic fortunes, among other divinations. Astrologers check to see what sign each planet was in at the time of birth. The planets and signs combine with other elements, such as houses and angles, to form a complex and often very specific profile of a subject’s personality, life and future prospects. There is no single unified theory or practice of astrology. Ancient cultures all practiced their own forms, some of which combined and evolved into today’s common western astrology. Eastern cultures continue to practice their own forms of astrology: Chinese, Vedic and Tibetan astrology are among the most well-known. Source: Howstuffworks.com.

The Enneagram is an ancient psycho-spiritual system of classifying personality types based on a nine-pointed starlike figure inscribed within a circle in which each of the nine points represents a personality type and its psychological motivations. Each type helps define how we think, feel and act at a background level. It is a belief system of how we adapt in the world to have our basic needs of love, security and self-worth met. The Enneagram teaches us how we are organized individually and collectively and how to move around the circle to activate our inherent gifts.

Human Design is a logical system that brings together principles of The I Ching, astrology, Kabbalah, Hindu-Brahmin chakra system, and quantum physics. Your Human Design Chart is calculated using your birth date, time, and place, to reveal your genetic design. Human Design shows you where and how to access your body’s consciousness as a decision-making tool, and ultimately, how to live as your true self. Human Design offers a map, or a manual, that indicates how you are unique as a person, and guides you in living in a manner that is in sync with who you are. When we live in alignment with our true nature, we begin to experience a level of comfort and acceptance for who we are, instead of chasing who we are not—and we’re able to live out our real purpose in the world. We all have our own mythology and purpose that we are designed to live out, our own gifts and magic we are here to bring to the world. These will unfold naturally when we are aligned with our mechanics. Source: Goop. To get your Human Design reading, contact Business Member Lauren Chekanow at opentoalchemy.com.
Based on the book, The Identity Code by Larry Ackerman, Identity Mapping offers a process to find your true “Self”. It is not about your accomplishments in life, but who you are or born to be — your immutable soul. Being present, owning your authenticity and going with what you are good at are ways to get off “autopilot.” You know you are living your purpose when you are in the flow. Some questions Identity Mapping Consultant’s ask are, “Who am I”, “What makes me special” and “Is there a pattern to my life?” among others.
Map of Consciousness
In order to create this Map of Consciousness® over 250,000 muscle testing calibrations spanning 30 years of multiple research studies were conducted by The Institute for Spiritual Research, Inc. Dr. Hawkins defined a range of values that correspond to levels of consciousness which include well-recognized attitudes and emotions. With a logarithmic scale of 1 to 1,000 and the Map of Consciousness® format that he developed, Dr. Hawkins explains the classification and characteristics of these energy fields to make them easily comprehensible and useful in daily life.It is important to realize that the calibration figures do not represent an arithmetic but a logarithmic progression. Thus, the level 300 is not twice the amplitude of 150; it is 300 to the tenth power. An increase of even a few points therefore represents a major advance in power. The ways the various levels of human consciousness express themselves are profound and far reaching. Levels below 200 are detrimental to life in both the individual and society at large; those above 200 are constructive expressions of power. The decisive level of 200 is the fulcrum that divides the general areas of force and power-Truth from falsehood. Source: Veritas.pub. Wholistic.com provides personalized Energetic Frequency readings.

Numerology is an ancient divinatory art that draws cosmic meaning, purpose, and guidance from numbers and number combinations. Almost everything holds meaning in the world of numerology – your birth date, your address, your name, and even your phone number all have numerical significance. Numerology is closely linked to astrology, Tarot, and the Hebrew Kabbalah. Numerologists recognize numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 22, and 33 as each having their own unique meaning. Each of these numbers represents various personality traits, patterns, and dispositions, both positive and negative. For example, the number 1 signifies the go-getter who may, at times, be overly domineering. The number 5 signifies a free-spirit, who might also become restless. (Source Sagegoddess.com)
