A lot of people ask me what the difference is between an Akashic Record Reading and a Psychic Reading. That is a great question. The two may seem similar to someone unfamiliar with the Akashic Records, but they in-fact have several differences. The best way to understand the differences is to first get a clear understanding of what the Akashic Records are.


Akasha is a Sanskrit word. Sanskrit is the primary sacred language of many religions like Hinduism and Buddhism. Akasha means “aether” (foundational element) sky, heaven or atmosphere. Akasha is the “Primary Substance” ⏤that out of which all things are formed.

The Akashic Record is known in the Bible as the “Book of Life.” (Psalm 69:28, Philippians 4:3, Revelations 13:8; 17:8; 20:12-15)

There is an energetic (vibrational) record of every single soul in existence; past present and future. This vast energetic storehouse of vibrational records is what is known as the Akashic Records. You could think of them as a kind of supercomputer of the Multiverse!

Like the multiverse, the Akashic Records are ever-expanding because every living soul is continuously adding to their record in every moment.

Every thought, feeling and action in life is recorded in your Akashic Record⏤literally everything that happens in your life!

Not only does it contain information about your present life, but also your past and future lives as well. The Akashic Record is your “book” of your life...your soul’s story. Accessing the infinite wisdom of the Akashic Records is a wonderful spiritual tool.

Many people experience healing through the Akashic Records as they are able to learn about past life traumas that may be manifesting in their current life as well as release blocked energy.


When you go to a psychic there are a few different ways that a practitioner may give you a reading. They may use tools such as Tarot cards, a pendulum, palm reading, or even a crystal ball. While other mediums have a less structured approach and rely solely on their psychic abilities to read your energy field.

In any case, a psychic reading is a reading based on your energy field and the practitioner’s abilities are relied upon to obtain the information.

Some of these abilities are:

  • Clairvoyance: Clear seeing⏤the ability to mentally see through the mind’s eye, spirits or people who have passed on, also the ability to obtain information about a person, place or event without using the five senses.

  • Clairsentience: The ability to sense or feel spirits of people who have passed on or to sense the auras or vibrations of living things.

  • Clairaudience: Clear hearing⏤the ability to hear words, sounds and voices from the spirit world.

So instead of the practitioner accessing a central “storehouse” of information like in an Akashic Records reading, for a psychic reading the practitioner gets information from your energy field via one of their psychic abilities.

The purpose of a psychic reading is to obtain information in order to get clarity or insight about a particular question, problem or series of related events. Psychic readings are more about specific details whereas an Akashic Reading is more of an overview of a soul’s different lifetimes.

Questions you might ask in a psychic reading are:

-Should I move to a new city?

-Will my business be successful this year?

-Will I ever get married?


Some things you can learn from an Akashic Record reading could include what star system your soul is from and your soul’s journey through important past lives here on earth and how it impacts you now. You can also learn about your spiritual gifts and your life’s purpose. You might also learn what lessons you are focused on here in this life and how that relates to your experiences and relationships.

An Akashic Record reading is more of an overview of who you are as a soul and what you are here on Earth to learn in this lifetime. It goes much deeper than a psychic reading which only concentrates on your current life, rather than the bigger picture of the story your soul has weaved throughout multiple lifetimes and even on multiple planets.

Questions to ask the Akashic Records in a reading can include things like:

-What’s my soul’s primary focus in this life?

-What are my spiritual gifts?

-What career fields are most aligned with my highest path and purpose?

Both types of readings are very useful in your spiritual development and can be helpful to get direction. It just depends on what you need guidance on. If it’s a specific question you have about a certain area of your life, then go for a psychic reading. However, if you are looking for insight into what is your soul’s purpose and what spiritual gifts you possess to aid in that purpose, then an Akashic Record Reading is the way to go.
