Journey Series: The Record Keeper Journey
The Record Keeper is the one who keeps all the records of your life. When you are still carrying around old records, they can weigh you down. A shamanic journey to the record keeper is a way to get rid of your old records.
This is a very powerful journey, so want to make sure you set the right intention.
You also want to make sure you have a little time afterwards in case you need it.
What are Records?
Records are old data stored in your energy field / body / or memory. They are “old” records because they no longer serve any useful purpose. These records are a type of energy that can weigh you down. Getting rid of old records makes sure you aren’t carrying these around any longer.
This a little different than Recapitulation, which was described in a previous post. Recapitulation is about releasing energy from memories and past experiences. To recapitulate you must contact the energy fully so you can release it. The records referred to here are more like old pieces of paper that need to be recycled.
*** Update *** This is not an Akashic records journey. These records are your personal records of your life. In a sense, these records are stored in your body. You don’t need them any longer. Unlike Akashic records, which persist outside of a specific space and time, these records are more like lines on an account ledger. If you think of them as Akashic records, that could alter the intention of the journey and take you to the wrong records. In that case, you wouldn’t find any records to get rid of.
Who is the Record Keeper?
Each person’s record keeper will look different. They could appear to you as a person, an animal, or a even a cartoon figure. For the purposes of this journey, the record keeper is the one who knows how to retrieve the records you want to get rid of.
Forming your Intention
For this journey you decide what old records you would like to get rid of. Part of the intention is that they are records that aren’t needed anymore. You can choose to ask for records related to a person in your life, an event, an old phase in your life, an old job, or a specific aspect of a relationship.
- You might have had a business partner you no longer work with. You would ask for all the “old records” related to that partnership.
- You could ask for the records for a place you aren’t living in anymore.
- You could ask for the records for old arguments you used to have with your sibling.
Don’t underestimate the power of this journey. Even though you aren’t using these records anymore, quite a lot of energy can be released through this process. It is a good idea to make sure you have a little time after the journey.
Determine what records you would like to release in advance of the journey.
Intention: To visit the record keeper to retrieve and release old records related to … the purpose you have decide on.
- Journey to your record keeper.
- Once you see the record keeper ask him / her / it to retrieve all the records related to the relationship, event or place that your are intending to release records for.
- The record keeper will retrieve the records, which can appear as a pile of files or any form that represents records. The more records the record keeper brings, the more energy you will be releasing.
- In the center of the room, you will see a fire. Once all the records have been retrieved, put them all into the fire.
- After you are done putting the records into the fire, you will also jump into the fire.
- Once you have jumped in the fire you may now return from your journey.
- Give yourself some time to absorb what happened, by either continue to lay down after you have returned or by sitting quietly for a short time.
If you don’t know how to do a shamanic journey, you may be able to do this by visualizing the steps listed above.
If your record keeper brings many records back, you may decide to do only half or a quarter of the records. You can then repeat the journey until all the records have been burned. You would jump into the fire after each group of records.
You may repeat this journey as many times as you wish for various relationships, events, roles, or places if you have other records you would like to release.
Just as with any cleaning process, there is no need to rush or over do this process. Taking your time with releasing records can ensure you don’t have such a big energy shift that its hard to process it. If you do find yourself getting light headed after this journey, drink lots of water that day, and, if possible, go sit at the base of a big tree or on a big rock.
Note: This journey was originally taught to me by Rosina owner of TranZformation, A Spirit Center in Illinois.

Other ways of releasing old energy:
This is amazing. I am so happy I found your site. My question is what if there were good memories that you had with a person or at a place like a bad job that you don’t want to get rid of? Does this process destroy memories or just energy? Does it destroy the good memories or energy?
Mona, I am happy to hear you found this site so helpful. The record keeper journey should not get rid of memories which still have “energetic content.” If you have memories that are happy or painful, those aren’t the ones that the record keeper journey is meant to get rid of. As a metaphor, you can think of this like recycling old receipts from purchases that were unimportant to you. Each record carries a tiny tiny bit of energy, but when you add up many of them, that energy becomes more significant.
Your record keeper helping spirit knows which ones are more like old receipts, and which are important memories. Your helping spirit will not bring important memories. You may still wish to take it in parts if you see MANY records. I did one very big record keeper journey the first time I did this. There were too many records and once it was done it felt like too much. I felt overwhelmed. That was when I learned that I could do the “clearing out” a bit at a time.
To clear energy related to certain bad or difficult memories, you would want to look at the link to Recapitulation. There are a variety of ways to clear up energy related to strong memories, and Recapitulation is a powerful way to do that. In the Shaman Links article, there is a link to another good article that describes the process. I did not wish to steal that website’s description, so I only shared the link. If you have a shamanic journey practice, you can also journey directly to your helping spirits and ask about the best way for you to clear out memories that carry more significant amounts of energy.
As for happy memories, I have not considered whether it would be worth clearing energy from those. While it would seem like there is no reason to do that, it never hurts to go to your helping spirits and ask about it. Or if you don’t have a shamanic journey practice, to meditate on this question.
You are amazing and so is this site. Thank you so much for your detailed response!
I am glad it helped. 🙂
Hello I read this as part of looking into recapitulation, which might be something that I need, need very much perhaps.
The records thing is interesting, since it reminds me of a dream from few weeks ago, where my legs were caught up by CDs encircling them, and I was breaking of these CDs to be able to move better.
