Dr. Douglas James Cottrell Akashic Record Reading

AngelicView: I was listening to Coast to Coast last night and this guy was on, Dr. Douglas James Cottrell, and he was described as the “Canadian Edgar Cayce”. This got my attention, of course, because I love Edgar Cayce. Apparently this guy goes into a deep meditative trance very similar to what Edgar Cayce did and brings back information from the Akashic Records.

I cannot post Coast to Coast shows here because every time I did in the past, the channel gets taken down right after I post. I know, right?! So I decided to take notes on what he said so I could pass it all on to you. I hadn’t heard of this guy before, so I Googled his name and came up with many quite positive things said about him. Having said that, though, I think you should probably take what he says with a grain of salt. It really is mostly “doom and gloom” type of stuff and things that many prophets before him have said. I want you to know that even though I find this kind of thing interesting, it’s not something I lay awake at night and worry about.

So remember, these are just my notes and not a word-for-word translation of what he said. Below my notes you will find some additional information from Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E. on the Akashic Records.

Dr. Douglas James Cottrell

“Canada’s Edgar Cayce”


Coast to Coast AM December 13, 2014


Dr. Cottrell is now in deep meditative trance (DMT)


C2C: What is the potential for a major CME or Solar Storm and the consequent EMP event that could knock out power grids? How likely is an event in the next 2 to 3 years?


DJC: The current changes in the sun are affecting human consciousness and well-being of humans on Earth. As to the EMP event, this is highly probable. There will be a “scorching effect”, as well, as to the high degree of electronic waves to those electronics that are receptive to it. It can be averted, but this would take the will of the most humans on the planet and a decrease in hostilities and inhumanity that is taking place because the physical world is a result of those things that are carried on in the higher realms.


C2C: What is the possibility of a major eruption of the Yellowstone Caldera in the next 2 to 3 years?


DJC: Very likely. This is going to happen. Volcanic activity and “bubbling” of the Sun are correlated. There will also be contractions of the crust of the Earth. May be a little longer than 2 to 3 years. It is going to happen.


C2C: Is there life on Mars?


DJC: Yes. It is microbial.


C2C: Disclosure – from the US Government in the next 2-3 years?


DJC: It is already taking place. 2nd to 5th year (from now?) there will be an abundance of sightings. Sightings and interactions will continue to take place as the chaos in the world spiral downward.  There is a chance that the planet need not experience chaos. More and more affirmation…. will continue to point where deniability cannot be extinguished. Will hear from highest office (not necessarily the U.S. President) that it is true 2016-2017… in a time of chaotic circumstances… when there is a correlation of volcanic eruptions of Mt. Vesuvius and Mt. Etna. Sightings will first be undeniable, and then there will be announcements. It makes no sense to deny the obvious.


C2C: Location of missing Malaysian Flight 370?


DJC: It is parked intact, underwater, in a coastal area. Heavily guarded. Diversions and deceit are involved. Intention was to destroy life on the plane and to divert information from foreign powers in the East. Cannot give specific location because it could be dangerous.  (His son then said, “This information has a “time” and a “place” “.)  

Caller Question:  What is the most important thing to do to protect the health and welfare of the Earth?


DJC: It is best to understand that the consciousness’ of the human race and the Earth are one. What takes place on Earth is an end result…. there is time left to avoid calamities. The oceans are heating and will rise. The planet is wobbling on it’s axis and there will be a tilting of the axis. To avoid calamities, humans can simply be “nice” to one another. All minds are linked together and to improve the world, you would simply love one another, take care of one another, be compassionate. That is the medicine that will save the world.


Caller Question: Will there be an alien war (between the good and bad) here on our planet?


DJC: No. Non-interference…. free will, free choice… No invasion/war. This place has been provided for those who are here – the humans. Never fear. There will not be any form of intervention. The intention is to overcome warfare and misery and bring peace. This is a testing or teaching time. Those who survive and continue will have 1,000 years of peace.


Caller Question:  Are there safe areas in the world where one can live where there will be least disruption in nature?

DJC: Yes.  


In America – inland. Away from Eastern Seaboard about 200km. Higher elevation is better. There will be shrinkages of the continents. Africa will shrink in size. North of the Scandinavian countries directly east and west will all be underwater. Move southward from the coast in the north. India will shrink and the continent is moving north but will be intact. Australia is safe and will not be affected. There will be large masses of land that will form east of South America. Argentina will be inundated with water and start all over again. There will be seen areas of the Pacific that will rise causing flooding to the Western Seaboard of the Americas.  There will be submergence of the islands in the West Pacific. The Ring of Fire will be continuously active. Italy will also be active as to the volcanic activities of Vesuvius and Etna. But the country itself will survive. Spain will shrink in size and there will be inundation of waves of water from the North all the way up to the highest point in the North of Spain. San Sebastian will be submerged. The Pacific and the Atlantic Oceans will increase. You will find volcanic activity in the St. Lawrence that will further Separate the South shore from the North. But the country will be maintained. Anywhere in the interior should be safe. The “Four Corners” in America will be safe. The Southern-most tip of Florida will wash away. There will be movements up and down of Central America. This will cause some inundation of water and some forming of a new coastline.  Expect larger islands to appear in the oceans themselves. To be inland from the coastline is usually a rule of thumb to be safe. There will be great trials and tribulations for those on the coastlines.


Continued shrinking of the ice caps, wobbling of the planet, and the possibility of the planet reversing it’s rotation. There are many safe places. Pay attention to the dreams and visions and to those who prophesize.

At this time, Dr. Cottrell comes out of his DMT and the questions to him continue.

Caller Question: Are we cloning humans on Earth?


DJC: He says that in Atlantean times cloning was the norm. People were cloned to do laborious jobs. He says that he feels cloning of humans takes place now, and will more openly in the future.


(AV): Below is some information from Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E. on the Akashic Records.


The Akashic Records or “The Book of Life” can be equated to the universe’s super computer system. It is this system that acts as the central storehouse of all information for every individual who has ever lived upon the earth. More than just a reservoir of events, the Akashic Records contain every deed, word, feeling, thought, and intent that has ever occurred at any time in the history of the world. Much more than simply a memory storehouse, however, these Akashic Records are interactive in that they have a tremendous influence upon our everyday lives, our relationships, Akashic body our feelings and belief systems, and the potential realities we draw toward us.


Upon time and space is written the thoughts, the deeds, the activities of an entity – as in relationships to its environs, its hereditary influence; as directed – or judgment drawn by or according to what the entity’s ideal is. Hence, as it has been oft called, the record is God’s book of remembrance; and each entity, each soul – as the activities of a single day of an entity in the material world – either makes same good or bad or indifferent, depending upon the entity’s application of self towards that which is the ideal manner for the use of time, opportunity and the expression of that for which each soul enters a material manifestation. The interpretation then as drawn here is with the desire and hope that, in opening this for the entity, the experience may be one of helpfulness and hopefulness. Edgar Cayce Reading 1650-1

It is no exaggeration to state that the computer has transformed (and is still in the process of transforming) the entire planet. Whether it’s technology, transportation, communication, education, or entertainment, the computer age has revolutionized the globe and the ways in which we understand and interact with one another. No segment of modern society has gone unaffected. The amount of information now stored in computer memory and crossing the Internet highway daily is literally unfathomable. And yet, this vast complex of computer systems and collective databases cannot begin to come close to the power, the memory, or the omniscient recording capacity of the Akashic Records.

The Akashic Records contain the entire history of every soul since the dawn of Creation. These records connect each one of us to one another. They contain the stimulus for every archetypal symbol or mythic story which has ever deeply touched patterns of human behavior and experience. They have been the inspiration for dreams and invention. They draw us toward or repel us from one another. They mold and shape levels of human consciousness. They are a portion of Divine Mind. They are the unbiased judge and jury that attempt to guide, educate, and transform every individual to become the very best that she or he can be. They embody an ever-changing fluid array of possible futures that are called into potential as we humans interact and learn from the data that has already been accumulated.

Biblical References: Book of Life

Information about these Akashic Records – this Book of Life – can be found in folklore, in myth, and throughout the Old and New Testaments. It is traceable at least as far back as the Semitic peoples and includes the Arabs, the Assyrians, the Phoenicians, the Babylonians, and the Hebrews. Among each of these peoples was the belief that there was in existence some kind of celestial tablets which contained the history of humankind as well as all manner of spiritual information.

The first reference in Scripture to some unearthly volume is found in Exodus 32:32. After the Israelites had committed a most grievous sin by worshiping the golden calf, it was Moses who pleaded on their behalf, even offering to take full responsibility and have his own name stricken “out of thy book which thou hast written” in recompense for their deed. Later, in the Old Testament, we learn that there is nothing about an individual that is not known in this same book. In Psalm 139, David makes reference to the fact God has written down everything about him and all the details of his life – even that which is imperfect and those deeds which have yet to be performed.

Akashic Records or “The Book of Life” For many individuals this Book of Life is simply an imagery symbol of those destined for heaven and has its roots in the custom of recording genealogical records of names or perhaps early census taking. Traditional religion suggests that this book – either in literal or symbolic form – contains the names of all those who are worthy of salvation. The Book is to be opened in connection with divine judgment (Dan. 7:10, Rev. 20:12). In the New Testament, those redeemed by Christ are contained within the Book (Philippians 4), those not found in the Book of Life will not enter the kingdom of Heaven.

As an interesting corollary, in the ancient world, a person’s name was symbolic of his or her existence. According to Sir James George Frazer, author of The Golden Bough – one of the most extensive volumes on world mythology – there was such a bond between one’s name and one’s existence “that magic may be wrought on a man just as easily as through his name as through his hair, his nails, or any other material part of his person.” In ancient Egypt, to blot a name out of a record was equivalent to destroying the fact that the person had ever even existed.

H.P. Blavatsky and Rudolf Steiner on the Akashic Records

eagle nebula Closer to our current era, a great deal of contemporary information on the Akashic Records has been made available by both reputable psychics and modern-day mystics – individuals who have somehow perceived beyond the limits of three dimensions. According to H.P. [Helena Petrovna] Blavatsky (1831-1891), Russian immigrant, mystic, and founder of the Theosophical Society, the Akashic Records are much more than simply an account of static data which may be gleaned by a sensitive; instead, the records have an ongoing creative stimulus upon the present:

Akasha is one of the cosmic principles and is a plastic matter, creative in its physical nature, immutable in its higher principles. It is the quintessence of all possible forms of energy, material, psychic, or spiritual; and contains within itself the germs of universal creation, which sprout forth under the impulse of the Divine Spirit.

Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925), the Austrian-born philosopher, educator, and founder of the Anthroposophical Society possessed the ability to perceive information beyond the material world: a “spiritual world” which was just as real to him as the physical world was to others. Steiner claimed that the ability to perceive this other world could be developed, enabling an individual to see events and information every bit as concrete as the present:

…man can penetrate to the eternal origins of the things which vanish with time. A man broadens his power of cognition in this way if he is no longer limited to external evidence where knowledge of the past is concerned. Then he can see in events what is not perceptible to the senses, that part which time cannot destroy. He penetrates from transitory to non-transitory history. It is a fact that this history is written in other characters than is ordinary history. In gnosis and in theosophy it is called the “Akasha Chronicle”…To the uninitiated, who cannot yet convince himself of the reality of a separate spiritual world through his own experience, the initiate easily appears to be a visionary, if not something worse. The one who has acquired the ability to perceive in the spiritual world comes to know past events in their eternal character. They do not stand before him like the dead testimony of history, but appear in full life. In a certain sense, what has happened takes place before him.

Edgar Cayce and the Akashic Records

In terms of contemporary insights, perhaps the most extensive source of information regarding the Akashic Records comes from the clairvoyant work of Edgar Cayce (1877-1945), Christian mystic and founder of A.R.E. For forty-three years of his adult life, Edgar Cayce possessed the uncanny ability to lie down on a couch, close his eyes, fold his hands over his stomach, and put himself into some kind of an altered state in which virtually any type of information was available. The accuracy of Cayce’s psychic work is evidenced by approximately one dozen biographies and literally hundreds of titles which explore various aspects of his information and the thousands of topics he discussed.

When asked about the source of his information, Cayce replied that there were essentially two. The first was the subconscious mind of the individual for whom he was giving the reading and the second was the Akashic Records.

Cayce’s Sojourn to Access the Records

Most often, when giving a reading which discussed a person’s soul history and his or her individual sojourn through space and time, Cayce would begin with a statement such as, “Yes, we have before us the records of the entity now known or called _________.” In discussing the process for accessing these records, Edgar Cayce described his experience as follows:

I see myself as a tiny dot out of my physical body, which lies inert before me. I find myself oppressed by darkness and there is a feeling of terrific loneliness. Suddenly, I am conscious of a white beam of light. As this tiny dot, I move upward following the light, knowing that I must follow it or be lost.

As I move along this path of light I gradually become conscious of various levels upon which there is movement. Upon the first levels there are vague, horrible shapes, grotesque forms such as one sees in nightmares. Passing on, there begin to appear on either side misshapen forms of human beings with some part of the body magnified. Again there is change and I become conscious of gray-hooded forms moving downward. Gradually, these become lighter in color. Then the direction changes and these forms move upward and the color of the robes grows rapidly lighter. Next, there begin to appear on either side vague outlines of houses, walls, trees, etc., but everything is motionless. As I pass on, there is more light and movement in what appear to be normal cities and towns. With the growth of movement I become conscious of sounds, at first indistinct rumblings, then music, laughter, and singing of birds. There is more and more light, the colors become very beautiful, and there is the sound of wonderful music. The houses are left behind, ahead there is only a blending of sound and color. Quite suddenly I come upon a hall of records. It is a hall without walls, without ceiling, but I am conscious of seeing an old man who hands me a large book, a record of the individual for whom I seek information. Reading 294-19 Report File

Yes, we have the body here, and the record as has been made and as may be made with the will as exercised, and the condition irrespective of the will’s influence or effect as has been created. We have conditions that might have been, that are, and that may be. Do not get the three mixed up or crossed purposes of either. Reading 304-5

Once given the record, Cayce had the ability to select the information which would be most capable of assisting the individual at that time in his or her life. Frequently, a reading might suggest that only a selection of the available material was being provided, but that the individual was being given that which would be “most helpful and hopeful.” Additional insights were frequently provided in subsequent readings once an individual had attempted to work with and apply the information which had been given previously.

As a means of perhaps alluding to the fact that the Akashic Records were not simply a transcription of the past but included the present, the future, and certain probabilities as well, in reading 304-5, Cayce began the reading with a curious statement.

When discussing the Book of Life, he stated it that it was “The record of God, of thee, thy soul within and the knowledge of same.” (281-33)

On another occasion (2533-8) Cayce was asked to explain the difference between the Book of Life and the Akashic Records:

Q. [What is meant by] The Book of Life?

A. The record that the individual entity itself writes upon the skein of time and space, through patience – and is opened when self has attuned to the infinite, and may be read by those attuning to that consciousness…

Q. The Book of God’s Remembrances?

A. This is the Book of Life.

Q. The Akashic Records?

A. Those made by the individual, as just indicated.

The Edgar Cayce readings suggest that each of us writes the story of our lives through our thoughts, our deeds, and our interactions with the rest of creation. This information has an effect upon us in the here and now. In fact, the Akashic Records have such an impact upon our lives and the potentials and probabilities we draw toward us that any exploration of them cannot help but provide us with insights into the nature of ourselves and our relationship to the universe.

There is much more to our lives, our histories, and our individual influence upon our tomorrows than we have perhaps dared to imagine. By accessing information from the Akashic Records, the universe’s computer database, much might be revealed to us. The world as we have collectively perceived it is but a faint shadow of reality.
