“The Akashic Records”

Sacred Exploration of Your Soul’s journey
Within the Wisdom of the Collective Consciousness

By: Ernesto Ortiz

All of the classes during the retreat will be simultaneously translated into French

Hand holding prayer beads​Join Ernesto Ortiz, author of “The Akashic Records” for an Inner exploration of the self in the land of the Mayas, where the Sacred Prayer magical came from. There is no better place in the world to explore the Akashic Records than in the birthplace of this energy. If you have been looking for a crystal ball that can help you and guide you in your life…. Look no further; the Akashic Records is the answer. If you need direction, change of career, healing, inspiration, life purpose, that is what you will get when you learn this material.

The energies of the Cosmic Change Cycle predicted by the Mayas, was set 11 years ago on December 21st, 2012. In Mayan numerology the 2 is added and we end up with 4. The foundation, the four square that provides balance and equilibrium. An opportunity to reset and balance as we move into the future.

An opportunity to reset our inner clock to accommodate the energies that the new cycle provides. To give ourselves the opportunity to vibrate or resonate to our highest frequency and awaken our crystalline nature. 11 is the first step of Manifestation, this retreat will help you set the goals of manifesting with clarity and single pointed purpose.

This is a “grand” moment of opportunnity to receive the attunment, the “Sacred Prayer” that will give you a deep and intimate connection with the Lords of Akasha. Your time to act is now!! To plant the seeds of Higher Consciousness and see them grow in your mind and your life.

Ask yourself the following questions:

How are you handling your emotions? Are you in alignment with your Divine Plan? Do you know that you are actually fulfilling your Dharma, your life plan? Are you conscious? What is the condition of your mind? Are you constantly going to the past? and not fully present, in the present. Are you willing to explore the depths of your psyche to become the best person you can be and from that perspective give the best that you can to the world?

If the answer is yes, to any of these; then you must give yourself the gift first before you give it to others.


We are the children, we are the elders, we are the past, we are the future, we are the mystics, and the shamans, we are the priest and priestesses, and we are the ancestors that carry the wisdom and the knowledge of the past.

Personal and professional transformation begins during this Intensive with Journey to the Heart in one of the most exotic locations in the world, culminating in a lasting commitment to a better life and world.

Explore the majestic beauty of Lake Atitlan, nicknamed “The Mirror of the Gods”, colorful markets, unique indigenous cultures, Shamanic ceremonies for protection by local Shaman and much more… You will have time to integrate, walk around the Sacred Lake, get healing treatments and delicious massages. And we promise you’ll have lots of time to rest, play and explore on your own.

This life changing retreat combines the Akashic Records Intensive facilitated by Ernesto Ortiz and other Certified Instructors for Journey to the Heart in a place that is not only dedicated to beauty but with a very unique spiritual essence.

This retreat is lifestyle training and it’s guaranteed to impact you the rest of your life!!

Our Akashic Records training program is designed to engage the serious spiritual seeker, the one who knows he/she has a greater mission in life. The one who knows that by sharing this oral tradition they will live his/her life dedicated to making a difference in the life of others and the world at large.

This training is all about YOU, your growth, your process, your personal healing and inspiration. The end results a brighter and lighter you!!

People sitting cross leggedThe breakdown of the Intensive is:

Four days Akashic Records Level 1 class

Four days Akashic Records Level 2 class

Four days Akashic Records Level 3 class

At the conclusion of the Intensive the student will be awarded an Akashic Records certificate. If you are interested in becoming a Certified Consultant all the information will be given to you and upon completion an Akashic Records Consultant Certificate will be awarded to you.

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.

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

Happy people

LEVEL 1 (initiation)

This three-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 Master’s 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. As in Level 1, we will work with the art of translation of the information received from our Master’s 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.

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 Master’s 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.
  • Feeding your demons.
  • 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.
  • How to use the physical body to anchor all information and energy received.

General Program Information

This will be a rich and intense program, that will allow you to explore the Mayan culture:

    1. Lake Atitlan, the mirror of the gods. Here you will be able to witness 400 year old traditions that happen only in the Mayan Highlands. You will be witness some of the most magical sunsets you have ever seen!! And help to continue setting a crystal grid in the middle of the lake, the solar plexus of the Americas.
    2. We will have sacred ancient Mayan ceremonies facilitated by Thomas, a local Shaman. You will be a participant in song, word and dance. These ceremonies are for health, protection and to get rid of any unwanted energies. You don’t want to miss this ones.

Here is a little about Villa Sumaya

Villa Sumaya, in the heart of Guatemala’s highlands, offers opportunities to discover Lake Atitlan’s living and legendary landscape. Villa Sumaya hotel and retreat center is seductively situated on the picturesque shores of Lake Atitlan (at 1,500 ms/4500 ft above sea level). With an uninterrupted vista punctuated only by a skyline of three perfect volcanoes, Villa Sumaya is the ultimate high for adventurers in search of beauty, reflection and ageless natural magic. This unpretentious, thatch roofed complex, has magnificent gardens, hot tub, sauna all hidden in the natural surroundings of this beautiful setting.

The meditation, seminar room is called the “Tiger Temple” with thatched roof, simple lines and a unique Asian motif. Boasting a lake front location, full panoramic view, hardwood floor, glass pyramid sky light and cascading garden
waterfalls, this space is ideal for yoga, meditation, dance or conferences.



Each room, appropriately named using Mayan glyphs, fully equipped with an in-suite bathroom/shower with hot and cold running water, electricity, and a spacious veranda where the lake is a stage. The veranda showcases the best of Lake Atitlan and Guatemala´s timeless nature and history. In your room you’ll be surrounded by flowing fabrics (the hallmark of Guatemalan artistry), hand-crafted ceramic tiles, wooden furnishings mixed and matched in a down-to-earth duo of adobe browns, indigo blues and stone-washed sienna’s.


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 Guatemala. Combined with the gift of the Akashic Records to help search within, I am filled with gratitude for this truly amazing experience.

Thank you, my friend, 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.

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
