The Oneness of Giving and Receiving – An Interview with Dr. Linda Howe
By Janae Jean
On November 9, 2020, I had the honor of speaking with award-winning author, teacher, speaker and Akashic Studies expert, Dr. Linda Howe. Dr. Howe has written several definitive books on the Akashic Records, including How to Read the Akashic Records: Accessing the Archive of the Soul and Its Journey, Healing Through the Akashic Records: Using the Power of Your Sacred Wounds to Discover Your Soul’s Perfection, and Discover Your Soul’s Path Through the Akashic Records: Taking Your Life From Ordinary to Extraordinary. Additionally, she has created guided practices available in audiobook or eBook format, for those who wish to dive further into their spiritual awakening and transformation. Her latest book, Inspired Manifesting Through the Akashic Records: Elevate Your Energy and Ignite Your Dreams will be released January 1, 2021, along with a live, online class, Manifesting Your Soul’s Purposes Through the Akashic Records, beginning on January 20, 2021.
Dr. Howe has been working as a spiritual consultant for more than three decades and began working with the Akashic Records in 1994. In 1996, she was certified as an Akashic Records Teacher. Dr. Howe is the originator of the Pathway Prayer Process,© to Access the Heart of the Akashic Records, and founded the Center for Akashic Studies in Chicago in 2001. Since 2010, she has taught a variety of online and in-person courses to students from around the globe.

Janae: You’ve written several books on the Akashic Records and have another book coming out next year, Inspired Manifesting Through the Akashic Records. What inspired you to write this book now? Was it due to the pandemic or were you planning on writing the book before the pandemic?
Linda Howe: I’ve been working on this book for five years. I’ve been working and traveling a lot for a couple of years now. I realized that I could not write a book in an airport or a hotel. Last December I made this prayer to the Universe, “Oh my God, I need a break, so I can get this book done.” I had all this urgency in my heart. Lo and behold! The pandemic hit and all travel ceased. One of the silver linings in the great clouds of COVID for me is to have the time and the space to finish this book.
With my first three books, I took the traditional publishing approach through Sounds True and Hay House. With this book, I realized that if I took the traditional approach, it would take a couple of years, and I don’t know that we have that kind of time. So, I’m self-publishing this book so it can be available quickly. We are in times of urgency for good guidance and wisdom.
This pandemic has pushed me to do so many things I swore I was never going to do. I was never going to self-publish or do a teacher training online. Now, I have an international teacher training program all online. I have to laugh! Who knew the world was going to change in this way?
JJ: You mentioned how the world has changed. Thinking about that and with the holidays coming up, how can we sincerely connect with our loved ones this holiday season even though we may be physically further apart?
LH: You know what we’re doing in my house? This year, we are having a virtual Thanksgiving. Everybody’s going to be in their own house and we’re going to put the laptop at the table. We’re going to do a Zoom Thanksgiving. We have to take care of one another and make the connections when we can but not put anyone we love at risk.
JJ: That’s a great way to think about it!
