Rev. Kari Chapman

“A Guided Healing Meditation to / through  the Akashic Records”

Rev. Kari will be guiding us in a Healing meditation  that will open, balance and align all Chakras ( energies centers in our body ) with all bodies, the physical, mental, spiritual and emotional, that will prepare you to be guided in a very special healing, Through the Akashic Records. She will guide each of us/ you to YOUR Akashic Records, thus allowing YOU to experience the healing.
Exploring the Akashic Records can be extremely valuable. What can be revealed is the essence and expression, potentials, and purposes of the Soul. For some, the activity of being in the Record sheds enough light to enable the release of old ideas, beliefs and patterns. It’s as if the light gets underneath the pattern in consciousness and lifts it to a higher place.
More important than any information gained through being in the Record is the energy present in the Record. Knowledge is wonderful. Insight can be profound.
Finally, the Akashic Record is a powerful way for people to grow in consciousness to support them in their personal lives and relationship with the Divine. Spending time in the Record aids people in the fundamental shift from self-reliance to God-reliance.

“We all come from the stars,” says Rev. Gorman. “The Universe is our galactic home and we have the unique opportunity to live upon the Earth at this time to create world peace together as a collective. As light beings on this planet, we have the power to use our gifts and talents to help shift Gaia and humanity into the new world that we are moving into. Allow this opportunity of the Star Gathering to remind us of our gifts, talents, our truth, where we come from and our Oneness to transform our lives and the life of the planet as a whole into a better world for future generations to come.”
