After the program and becoming a TNT (teacher in training) we will consult the Akashic Records and the student may at that point be released as a certified Journey to the Heart Instructor.

Rebirth, regression, soul searching, spiritually awakening, these are just some of the phrases I have used to describe our mystical trip to Egypt. 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 of the 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.

Figeac, FrancOne 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.

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 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.[vc_tta_section title=”Level 2″ tab_id=”1517337968051-1f951878-5171″]


In the Level 2 class you learn to open the Akashic Records for others.  As in Level I, 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 I 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.[vc_tta_section title=”Level 3″ tab_id=”1517338072441-07729e71-1bea”]


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.
  • 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.

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 siennas.
