“Universal Spirit, that which is interconnecting all that is, does not wear a watch, yet its’ timing is impeccable. From the Hardy Hibiscus that blooms once per day, to the Puya Berteroniana that awaits exactly the right moment to blossom once every 100 years, our Spirit too is led by this perfect timing. Ernesto Ortiz guides his groups with the help of Universal Spirit.
It was easy to see that Ernesto’s life as a person was guided by Spirit, through his heart. Each day was filled with adventures that were surrounded by love, and were spiritually nourishing; the majesty of the places we visited was life-changing. Each sacred site had deep-rooting effects, and Ernesto’s guidance and ceremonies brought a spiritual anchoring that will never be lost. He also incorporates the help of a local guide who elaborates fully, the deep connection with Pachamama these ancient people had that allowed them to live and create the way they did. This guide also has a heart of gold, and a passion for continuing his spiritual development, which makes the historical learning’s even more important.
The Sacred Teacher Plant Ceremonies with Mother Ayahuasca are life-changing as well. I recommend the teacher plant extension to all who travel with Journey to the Heart. These ceremonies allow for an immediate and strong connection to our core being. The shielding layers that have developed throughout this life are shed with the unconditional love and guidance of Mother Ayahuasca.
Through this experience and Ernesto’s teachings, I have been given the tools and passion to maintain spiritual discipline long after the ceremony ends. When I read the invitation for the Shamanic, Psychospiritual Integration Journey & Vibrational Alignment for 2013, I knew Spirit was smiling at me with a reminder that the time is always now and always perfect. I would suggest that if you are reading this, the time is also right for you. As Ernesto has gracefully put it, “We are the one’s we’ve been waiting for.”
If you are open to finding your true purpose and have a passion for changing the world for the better, there is no better time than now. Journey to The Heart is a wonderful conduit to help you do so!”
With eternal gratitude and unconditional love,

“I had been looking for a retreat for sometime and then I came across Ernesto and his Journey to the Heart retreats. I had been interested in the Akashic Records for some time and it was going to be held in Bali, a place I always wanted to visit made it a double blessing.
I can’t speak highly enough of Ernesto and his well organized retreat, everything from the places we stayed, the amazing authentic Balinese food and the specialised Excursions to the most interesting and spiritual locations where it was possible to participate in the most memorable ceremonies. One of the things I wanted from the retreat was that my soul would be fed, my heart opened more and that there would be some visible form of transformation in my life.
Ernesto helped in achieving this, he is the most profound teacher and has a wealth of knowledge but also has experienced all that he teaches, thus able to impart valuable and important advice and information on how we can move on in our spiritual live with the help of the Akashic Records.
Each day was unique, starting with our morning meditation, mantras, teaching, all practical, helpful and uplifting as well as challenging us all to move forward in confidence with all we were being taught. Ernesto held the group always in love and humility, often sharing from the depth of his heart. I met the most wonderful group of people from many different countries, which has lead to many new friendships.
I feel immensely privileged to have spent time with Ernesto and leant so much from a man who has a big open heart and a desire to teach and help people connect to their own spiritual power which lies within. I want to recommend Ernesto and the Journey to the Heart Retreats to everyone, wherever you are on your journey.
I shall look forward to joining Ernesto again sometime in the near future.”
Transformational Breath Facilitator
It has been a week since We completed Akashic Records training in Guatemala, and feeling totally blessed and grateful to Ernesto Ortiz, who held the group gracefully with his kind, loving personality and his rich transformative teaching.
We entered into our psyche deeply through various meditations, chanting, prayers, dancing, connecting with our Akashic Records and others…We then let go things which didn’t serve us and internalised kindness and love for ourselves and others.
We also had so much fun- couldn’t stop dancing.
Well.. I am now totally obsessed with chanting,’Om Mani Padme Hum’ and every opportunity I find, I am in my Akashic Records…. The unique journey to your own unique self will be held in Bali in September 2016 and I am intended to go…
With much love
“I attended the 2016 Akashic Records intensive training course in Guatemala facilitated by Ernesto Ortiz and his fabulous consultants.
It was a deep honour to receive this training in the land where it was first downloaded all those years ago. Our location was perfectly picked by the powerful energy centre of Lake Atitlan in a secluded retreat.
What differentiated the Akashic Records training to all other modalities I have learned or received – was that the focus was on providing the student with tools to take away to use for their entire lifetime. To help not only yourself, but all other living beings – to find answers from within yourself and not from others, to learn how to transform yourself and any erroneous paradigmatic thinking patterns you may have inside of you.
An integral part of the Akashic Records teachings was to learn how to switch your primary source of thinking from the head to the heart and we did daily exercises to facilitate this transformation all led by Ernesto and his team and by the end of the retreat we certainly learnt how to celebrate rather than cerebrate – as Ernesto might say!
The lessons provided us not only with the knowledge and access to open our own records, but how to use these tools to open the records of other people, buildings and sites and animals – and also how to become an Akashic Records reader in professional practice.
However, the retreat went far beyond the Akashic Records itself. We learnt about sacred mantras, how to programme crystals, trance dance, breathing techniques and Shamanic practices – all of which have been hugely beneficial to me on my spiritual path.
Our days off were filled with visits to local markets and taking part in a traditional Mayan fire ceremony all joined by Ernesto and his team.
I couldn’t have wished for a better teacher in Ernesto. He always made himself available to us even when things were really busy, he organised each and every day, made it clear to us what we would be doing and has a wealth of experience that he was open to share with us to help us along our own paths. Ernesto is full of unconditional love and guided by spirit (you only have to look into his eyes to witness it) and is absolutely dedicated to helping his students learn the Akashic Records.
This course has completely transformed my life and I will continue to learn about the Akashic Records for the rest of my lifetime.
Thank you Ernesto, the consultants and all the other students from the sacred altar of my heart. I have truly been blessed by this experience and am grateful to every single one of you.

I just returned from Guatemala where i completed the 10 day Akashic Record Training under the guidance of Ernesto Ortiz. This journey far exceeded anything I could have hoped for. It was a very profound and transformational experience that I will continue to integrate for many months as so much has taken place. You truly are re-born if you have the courage to surrender to the teaching and the process. This journey taught me that Absolute Surrender leads to Absolute Freedom.
Freedom and love and are at the forefront of my life thanks to the teachings and my ability to surrender to what was presented. I will forever be grateful for this life changing experience and the unconditional love and exceptional guidance provided by Ernesto.
I want to thank you for your spiritual journey and sharing this wisdom and your personal experiences with all of us.I come from India a land overflowing with spiritual masters, old and modern forms of spiritual practices. I have followed many spiritual masters and learnt different spiritual practices in India; But I must say you are Unique and so is your teaching.Uniqueness is being simple, non-judgmental, honest, being humble, accepting things in reality, ready to learn, assertive, loving and most important always giving.My 12 days of Akashic retreat was a precious gift I got from my husband. The past 4 years I had been a lost mother, a lost daughter and a lost wife and my only prayer to God was, to help me find my purpose and myself in life.I experienced rebirth (created a new Taanaz) I died for the first time (it was a death of my old patterns, bad emotions, unwanted past, behaviors, habits, the list is endless and I was able to connected to my true inner self.The place where the course was conducted, the places we visited in Bali , all the beautiful people I met during the course , the process of learning Akashic Records, the morning meditations and chanting, walking in muddy rice fields all for these fun but at the same time we all had deep learning . I can’t express the impact of my learning in word because it’s endless and ongoing.Thank you for helping me to become a vehicle to spread love and light.
“My first experience with any form of spirituality came in the form of the Akashic Records in Guatemala 2013. As an individual with no prior experience or contact with anything remotely spiritual, you could say I arrived at the retreat feeling like a fish out of water. Oh, not to mention I was the youngest participant in the course at the time… So I really felt lost. The great thing was that those feelings didn’t last long. They evaporated as soon as the retreat started and the full acceptance and honest sharing’s that Ernesto and everyone else gave to the retreat made me feel right at home. Since this is a retreat about opening your own Akashic Records and those of others, I must say that (1) you will definitely learn to open your Records (fear not!) and (2) reading for others is a beautiful and privileged experience. Do you need any psychic or spiritual abilities? Nope! All you truly need is an open heart. As a teacher, Ernesto presents the course material and information in a very down-to-earth and approachable manner. Because the material is taught in relation with Ernesto’s own personal experiences (which are oft times very funny), it was extremely easy to connect and assimilate the material.
My first experience was so good and transformational that I signed up for the Bali 2014 without hesitation – I knew I had more to learn and every experience brings with it new teachers and teachings.
What did I learn or experience in the Bali 2014 retreat? That the retreat is beautiful regardless of time and space; that life is a journey, and we’re all on the path towards enlightenment and that the learning never stops.
Regardless of where and when you join the retreat, I can guarantee your soul will thank you for it. Each retreat brings with it a unique sense of joy, beauty, peace and love. Unlike most experiences, this is an experience that you can keep repeating and repeating with different ‘outcomes’ depending on where you are in your life at that time. The energy is always different, the people are always different but the Love you receive during the retreat is something that words cannot give sufficient justice to. Enjoy the journey to your heart with Ernesto guiding you there. It is a beautiful experience that you’ll never forget and the benefits stay with you long past the end of each retreat… And I dare say, it’ll last for all eternity.”
“This trip « Journey to the Heart » brought me into a land that I would never expect to visit and to connect too. This trip into Bali’s Heart brought me directly into the Womb of our Mother-Earth, Mama Gaya, and my own. Being cared and loved in delicious Omunity’s center, with beautiful Balinese people all around us, walking through its fantastic Nature, bathing into its gorgeous sacred cascades, praying on different Temples sites, immersing into Sacred water-springs, receiving extraordinary jasmine massages… and sharing all those moments with a wonderful group of people from all over the world. In some of the amazing meditations led by Ernesto and fire-ceremonies, my Heart just burst into an explosion of shining diamonds.
My life is now changing! And this Journey to the Heart was a strong Divine invitation orchestrated with many exceptional surprises and personal discoveries.
For that, I thank you so much Ernesto Ortiz for having initiated each of us into the Akashic Records.
My gratitude goes to you Ernesto for your presence, patience, compassion, for creating this great retreat, transmitting to us your wisdom, and sharing with us his vast human experience, with simplicity, humility, and respect.
Thank you Ernesto, and be loved forever. « Pensées Lumineuses & Lumière dans le Cœur ».”
The program was smooth and well-paced, with every single details taken care by Ernesto, his assistant Calista, and the extremely accommodating host Zanzan and his lovely wife Putu. Teachings happen in and outside of the classrooms, and I was amazed by how much I learnt in occasions that seem like pure indulgence – in a traditional Buddhist cave, on a local rice field, in the pristine waters of the sacred water temple, and on the hikes to the breathe-taking waterfall. And of course, none of this will be possible without Ernesto, who humbly calls himself a facilitator, but in fact one of the best spiritual teachers you can find today. Ernesto strives to make himself available to everyone, patiently addressing every single question, always with a beautiful smile on his face.
With lots of love,
What a Divine experience this has been for me. My life will be transformed as I continue to use what the Akashic Records have recorded thru so many lifetimes. What a profound experience this has been as I have witness how it unfolds moment to moment. I feel deeply grateful from the wisdom received by the Masters. I know I have so much more to receive and I cannot wait to receive it and gain more wisdom. I thank you Ernesto for the seed that you planted and now I can cultivate and see it grow. It has been my passion to be of service to humanity. I now have the means via the Akashic Records to do so. Thank you!!
Learning the ancient practice of reading the Akashic Records, and working with the Masters for deep healing, has so far been the most profound experience of my life. Learning from a master teacher (Ernesto Ortiz) in the gorgeous surroundings of Lake Atitlan has imprinted the experience into my mind and heart in a way that I will cherish forever.
Thank you Ernesto
Love, love and more love
Thank you for facilitating and providing the beautiful retreat in Bali, it has been a great pleasure and honor to have you as a teacher in my life. The retreat has been amazing and it has shown and made me experience things that I don’t think I would have been able to if I had never turned up. Thank you again for being such a amazing teacher the knowledge, kindness, love, heart and soul can always been felt from what you say and from what you do.
The journey to the heart retreat facilitated by Ernesto Ortiz was one of the most amazing experiences I’ve ever had. Every day I discovered something new about myself and the universe. The revelation process and the guidance from Ernesto has been so incredible that I have been at awe every day. Thank you for the liberation, joy and the new birth. Thank you for you I felt so much love and I continue to feel it in my heart.

Ernesto – Thank you again for such a divine and beautiful experience. It’s been a week since my return to work. I find myself in a space of total bliss among my coworkers. I am very mindful of each moment that passes me by. I feel profound gratitude for just being here and enjoying my Oneness with EVERYTHING. You left a seed in my heart and I plan to nourish it daily. I am deeply grateful for all the wisdom you so lovingly bestowed in all of us.
I came in with an idea of what these retreat would be like and I am very pleasantly surprised that my expectations were blown out of the water. I went in, I found my spirituality, I danced with it, I found more aliveness that I didn’t even know was there and most of all I was taking back to remember. To say that this was a course or classes would not do justice. The love, the learning, the enjoyment, the process, the experience provided with the gentle guidance of Ernesto will forever be engraved in my heart. Thank you Ernesto for being the example of love, for giving us your support, patience for being thoughtful and patient with us.
Much love from my heart, gracias

Dear Ernesto these days were amazing. The way we were introduced to the Akashic Records and initiated by you, I felt much support from you. Your loving way to guide us through the process was very beautiful. It’s an honor to know you as my teacher.
I look forward seeing you again and receive more of your love, light and wisdom and with that bring a piece of heaven to earth, together as one. With deep gratefulness I wish you lots of great dances and many blessings from above.
With much love
