The breakdown of the Intensive is:

Four days ~ Akashic Records Level 1 class

Three days ~ Akashic Records Level 2 class

Four days ~ Akashic Records Level 3 class

One Day of complete Integration

If you have taken the Akashic Records with any qualified teacher, and you are ready to deepen your experience, you are welcome to attend. It will be a powerful opportunity to enter deeper levels of consciousness, let go of all fears and fly to inner spaces of your full potential. You don’t want to miss this one!!!!

At the conclusion of the Intensive the student will be awarded an Akashic Records certificate of attendance.

This retreat will not qualify you to teach the Akashic Records!

If the student feels like he/she would like to continue with the training and become an instructor of the Akashic Records, then a meeting will be set with Ernesto or another certified instructor to enter the Teacher Training Program, but only after the student becomes a “Certified Consultant”.

After becoming a Certified Consultant the student can then enter the TNT (teacher in training) program, once the criteria is meet, we will consult the Akashic Records, if the Consultant feels ready then He/She will receive the blessing to teach under the umbrella of Journey to the Heart.

Since there are four levels of teaching corresponding to the four levels of the Akashic Records classes, the TNT will be qualified to teach the Level 1 class. After that the Consultant must meet the requirements to teach subsequent levels.

Here is what you will learn in each of the three levels of the Akashic Records and the Consultant training:

LEVEL 1 (initiation)

This four-day intensive class is offered to enable YOU to experience the life transforming process of accessing your Akashic Records, thereby acquiring a tool that will forever be a source of profoundly illuminating growth, healing, and guidance.

The purpose of this class is to give participants an opportunity to learn a Sacred Prayer, opening their hearts to the Holy Spirit and receiving access to this magnificent realm.

In the Level 1 class, we focus on how to open and access the Records for ourselves. We start with an attunement that fine-tunes the information as it is being given to us by the Masters and Teachers of Akasha, and we start to learn how to translate that information.

We begin to understand how to formulate questions that will assist in the conversation as the information is given to us. We learn the Level 1 Grace Points (points of release or action that manifest in the hands) and how these Grace Points come to support our work and progress inside the Akashic Records.

We learn how the energy of the Akashic Records can create healing in our lives, how to identify patterns, behaviors, addictions, and co-dependencies, and how we can create choices to move more freely in life from a point of clarity and guidance.


LEVEL 2 (practitioner)

In the Level 2 class you learn to open the Akashic Records for others, however you will also learn to open the Akashic Records of animals, Sacred sites, buildings and much more. As in Level 1, we will work with the art of translation of the information received from our Masters and Teachers, and we will become attuned to the essence of pure Love, Light, and the Holy Spirit.

This three-day class gives you the opportunity to deepen into your personal healing and add to the experience from Level 1 as you enter the sacred space of another seeker to access their Akashic Records. This experience in many cases is life transforming for the individuals receiving the information.

The Level 2 class offers you the opportunity to fine-tune your reception of information, as you not only receive information but also share it through the power of the spoken word. In working with others, you will be opening to receive the information in ways that you have not experienced before. You set yourself in the mode of pure and unconditional service to others and give the information as you receive it. This is the perfect time to open to sight, sound, taste, feelings, and emotions as you share what you get, and is often a time to invite loved ones to come in and communicate unfinished business, express love, or ask for forgiveness and resolution with the person you are reading for.

This is a powerful class that will help you to open the Akashic Records of Animals, sacred sites, nature, buildings and more.

You will learn the Level 2 Grace Points, how to deal with patterns of interference, how to formulate better questions, how to create Sacred space, and additional meditations to increase your own vibrational frequency.

During this class you will also be able to work with fellow consultants as you team up and practice opening the Akashic Records for each other. You will have the opportunity to have your Records read and in the process validate your own answers.

LEVEL 3 (integration)

The Akashic Records Level 3 class is an integration of the previous two classes. After you have taken Levels 1 and 2, you have then experienced the magic of information and the love that comes from the Masters and Teachers. You have had the privilege of consulting and opening the Akashic Records for other people.

In the Level 3 class, we deepen into the Akashic Records experience. This class is about YOU, and the deep personal healing that is possible once you get way below the surface and into the root system of the self. This system is what feeds you, what gives you nourishment and is active within the self – 24 hrs a day. It is part of the subconscious and the unconscious, and the subconscious programming and robotic responses that we carry within the self.

In the Level 3 class we will explore:

  • The art of questioning. How to formulate questions that can take you deeper.
  • Ancestral healing patterns.
  • Personal genealogy and how that is playing in your life
  • DNA and personal relationships.
  • Advanced Grace Points.
  • Imaginal Cells and how they play a major role in your life.
  • How to uncover and activate the Amos Code. This code is within the DNA as God’s signature and contains the message of healing and peace.
  • Feeding Your Demons
  • How to use the physical body to anchor all information and energy received.

This is a Transformational journey based on the life cycle of the dragonfly!!

The exploration of Self through the expanded awareness that you have had by being connected to the Akashic Records is giving you now the opportunity to truly spread your wings and fly. The time is now to completely let go of all limitations, and free yourself to express your beauty and magnificence!!!

Are you ready to fully change?

  • Ready to let completely go of all fears and limitations?
  • Have these fears and limitations interfere with your life’s purpose, with your hopes and dreams?
  • Are you ready to completely come out of the cocoon, spread your wings with joy and fly?
  • Are you ready to experience magic in all your relationships?
  • Are you ready to change your life and live the life of your dreams?
  • Have you created a deep and intimate relationship with Akasha?

The Akashic Records will assist you in going far deeper that you have ever gone before as you step into a new crystalline vibratory frequency through experiential exercises, meditations, mantras, art, music and movement. You will move through the transformation process of a butterfly and obtain tools to live free, to design the life of your dreams, to become fully empowered in your magnificence and share that beauty with the world.

Lets together change the world into a world of beauty and love.

The four Stages that we will explore:

  • The Egg Stage ~ Where it all began…
  • Caterpillar Stag ~ Your survival, the framework created around your belief system, fears, doubts, limitations.
  • Cocoon Stage ~ The story we have created and how that wraps around us and imprisons us, until a moment of opportunity and we begin to understand our real meaning. Transformation takes place in the cocoon, the story unfolds, and the old self disappears giving birth to a new you.
  • Dragonfly Stage ~ Now is time to fly, to open your wings, to look at your beautiful colors, to trust that you are worthy to fly. Your True mission manifests and you have all that it takes to give it action and reality.

Departure from Ashram


Seminar venue

Parmarth Niketan Ashram

Parmarth Niketan literally means “An Abode Dedicated to the Welfare of All.”

The rooms are simple, Ashram style, clean with hot water, Air Conditioning or cooler, and a comfortable bed. No frills, no luxury, however, remember that this in India, and we have to adjust to what may happen. OM FLEXI OM…..

The Ashram is a true spiritual heaven, lying on the holy banks of Mother Ganga in lush lower Himalayas. It is the largest Ashram in Rishikesh, providing its thousands of devotees who come from all over the world with a clean, pure and sacred atmosphere as well as abundant beautiful gardens.

Rishikesh – known as the “City of the Divine”- is a spiritual center to which sages, rishis, saints and pilgrims have flocked for millennia. The roads of the city are lined with bustling marketplaces of ethnic arts and handicrafts, fresh produce markets, holy shrines and orange-robed sadhus. Then, the road narrows, the markets become more sparse and you come upon a foot bridge, suspended high over the sacred Ganga river. As you cross this bridge, the sun streaming through the sacred Himalayas to warm your being, you will feel as if you have truly come home.

Testimonials about Ernesto’s work:

Rebirth, regression, soul searching, spiritually awakening, these are just some of the phrases I have used to describe our mystical trip to Bali. Combined with the gift of the Akashic Records to help search within, I am filled with gratitude for this truly amazing experience.
Thank you Ernesto, where do we go next???



Dear Ernesto,
This is the most wonderful trip I’ve never taken: the teachings about Akashic Records were a discovery, which changed my life completely. The energies of the group and the country, the energy from your heart always and in-always there; all this was made possible by you. Thanks to Ernesto whom I’ll never thank enough.
Besides, doing this journey with my husband was very important for us, and as a result greater intimacy from doing it together: the discovery of each other, the trust, added another dimension to our love!
So, I feel a big love and infinite gratitude for you in our lives.
Claudie Gendre
Figeac, France

One becomes initiated through being invited! I have undergone a real initiation process both ancient and modern, through the power of the Akashic Records prayer and the Intensive in Egypt. Through the Chakra path I received a real initiation of magnificence and cosmic in scale.

I have so enjoyed all the diverse qualities in the group, nationalities and colorful characters. It was a privilege and a blessing that you Ernesto brought it all together and gave the group strength and room for transcendence.

So from my heart Ernesto, thank you for the teachings, learning’s and workshop.
