First, it’s important to know that you are here, reading these words, because your soul has been calling you; there is something already active within you that brought you to this moment.


Reading of Akashic Records is a simple tool for accessing profound spiritual depth. Before exploring what is offered in the Akashic Records Certification program, here’s some information about Akasha and the Records themselves.


What is the Akasha?

Akasha is a Sanskrit word that means ‘ether.’ It is a field of energy.

When we talk about the Akasha - the primary substance - we are referring to energy in its first and earliest state – before it has been directed by our individual thoughts and affected by our emotions in this lifetime.


What are the Akashic Records?

The Akashic Records are a dimension of consciousness that contains a vibrational record of every soul and its journey. Moreover, the Records are a body of knowledge that contains everything that every soul has ever thought, said, and done over the course of its existence. Even more importantly it contains all desires and future possibilities. Therefore, we can look at the Records as an intermediary body of all past, present, and future possibilities, probability and eventuality. Through them we can derive understanding and direction as we embark on our journey to becoming our optimal selves in the physical world.


What else should I know about the Records? The Records are:

  • a catalyst to release negative/unsupportive beliefs and expand your joy

  • a catalyst to heal

  • are nonintrusive and noninvasive

  • not the exclusive domain of any religion on metaphysical-wisdom or school of thought, rather they are available to all

  • a radical opportunity to view oneself and life from a very different angle


SHINE’s mission in delivering certifications and workshops is to take esoteric concepts - such as this one - and deliver them in an easily accessible, practical way so that every individual with a desire can learn and use this profound, yet simple tool. This training is a way for you to connect to the Divine for guidance, instead of looking to others to be that bridge. Below you will find descriptions for both level one and level two certifications.



Class: Akashic Records Certification – Level One

Teacher: Cortney Martinelli

Duration: 7 hours

Tuition: $275


Humanity has moved from the age of dependence on a spiritual guru or ‘parent’ to spiritual independence and responsibility. This spiritual independence is marked by individuals knowing that they have direct access to their spiritual source and by using their independence to cultivate that relationship. In this certification, the student will learn the process of accessing or ‘opening’ the Akashic Records, where the student transitions from a state of ordinary human consciousness to a state of Divine universal consciousness. This state of consciousness allows us to perceive the impressions and vibrations of the Records.


This certification is about changing your life. As you apply the guidance and rely on the energy of the Records, your future will take the form of the life you’ve always wanted. Will it be a life without challenges, obstacles, and stress? Of course not. It will be a human life with physical occurrences, mental activities and emotional upheaval. Yet, you will live it from a place of grace so that as circumstances unfold, you are able to remain happy, kind, respectful and generous even when things appear to not be ‘going your way.’


Target audience for this course: Those looking to take responsibility for their own understanding and relationship with their own spiritual authority; for the sake of personal growth and development. Those looking to enhance and support artistic endeavors such as photography, pottery, painting and writing. Businesspeople who would like help in managing their companies or careers. Parents looking for guidance to support in parenting.


Prerequisites for the course:

Anyone with a conscious commitment to seeking and spreading Divine Light and healing can access this body of wisdom, insight, and guidance. Working in the Akashic Records requires an understanding and acceptance of the concept of reincarnation. From the perspective of the Records, all souls are eternal. At this level of understanding, the Records hold the archive of each soul as it has existed from lifetime to lifetime as different human beings on the earth plane while evolving throughout time and space. There is a part of us that is indestructible, that nothing can obliterate, that lives on forever; this is our soul.

Her desire is to empower the community to heal on all four-levels and explain how energy works within the mind and the body.


She believes that there are typically two ways one arrives at insight and spiritual growth:

  1. Spiritual quests that one must travel alone, solely by themselves

  2. Challenges where one seeks spiritual counsel from another that has traveled a similar path and can therefore help navigate the journey

Case-by-case, Cortney helps client’s look inward to determine if traveling alone or receiving assistance is the best approach. In either case, Cortney provides love and support.


Cortney’s classes can be summed up in one word: love. Cortney's personal stories, authenticity, playfulness and creativity are hallmarks of her teaching style. She also has a knack of taking esoteric concepts and explaining them in an easily understandable way.
