Someone lied. Marriage is not forever.
Well, not all marriages are forever. But the statement “marriage is forever” is blindly taken as a blanket statement which applies to everyone, at all times, and in all places. As true as the sky is blue, and just as unchangeable.
Yet I am on my second marriage. This, of course, means that my first marriage was not forever.
The sky, in fact, did change. Nothing magic about it. Like many many other people who have been through a divorce, I made a conscious decision for the scenery to change. But that decision did not come easily.
The important bit here is not that I went through a divorce. Or that a lot of people go through divorces. It’s that a marriage is a form of a contract (albeit a very strong one). And because a contract, by definition, is an agreement between two parties, there can and sometimes should be disagreement.
In my example, I knew that I no longer wanted to be in a marriage with my first husband, but stayed in it longer than necessary because I fully internalised the commonplace belief that “marriage is forever” and felt awful pangs of shame and guilt anytime I dared to think otherwise.
Relief and clarity came through an understanding of akashic records. I was able to break through those negative emotions, and I was able to recognise that my first marriage had its particular time, place and purpose.
On a grand scale, our souls call forth relationships. These relationships run the full spectrum of possibilities, from the most “mundane” (like, say, one’s hairdresser) to the most significant (such as a spouse). Yet every relationship, no matter how fleeting or seemingly insignificant, is important.
Now, it can sometimes feel like we’re billiard balls just randomly smashing into each other. Or toy boats tossed about in an unpredictable ocean.
But every encounter is pregnant with meaning. Which is not to say that we should go about analysing every person we see, trying to extract a deeper why. One would go absolutely batty doing that. End up being that person on the streets talking to themselves. Nobody wants that.
What I’m suggesting here is that we pretty much know which encounters and relationships have meaning worth paying attention to. Romantic ones, for sure. Close friends. Sometimes strangers. And once we are open to the idea that they have meaning, as well as understand that their meaning may be important, then the particulars of the meaning(s) start to reveal themselves and take shape.
That’s where the fun and work begins – deep soul stuff, where we can consciously gain a deeper understanding of why we are here. And little by little, we can remove the chaos of modern life and replace it with something richer.
From an akashic standpoint, every relationship has meaning in that it exists in order to teach us something. All humans are teachers, if they want to be or not. Our soul wants us to learn things and so sets a strategy in this life to call forth the relationships which will support us in exactly the ways we need to be supported (“good” or “bad”).
So when a relationship doesn’t go well, we might ask ourselves, “what was really behind that?” Was it meant to support our learning? Rattle us in an important way? Smash around our boat a bit?
If so, why? Is that lesson done? Is there something more I need to learn from it? And a number of other idiosyncratic questions only you know how to formulate and ask.
So, through this lens, we could look at the “contract” of marriage in a new way. The real contract was the one our souls made. That contract may or may not have anything to do with a piece of paper from City Hall. We’re human after all, so results may vary.
It’s up to us to listen for what the nature of our relationships are. What meaning they hold for that we can tap into now, or tap into next time, in the next relationship, when the cycle presents itself once again. Or as many times as it needs to before we can read the billboard.
As human beings blessed with radical free will, we can decide what to do with our contracts, in whatever form they come in. Even if it is a powerful soul contract with a particular person, we are okay to say, “not now… maybe next time.”
This level of discernment doesn’t come automatically to everyone. I know it didn’t to me at first. If you had a relationship in the past or perhaps one currently which you’d like to understand, an akashic reading could help you open up new levels of clarity.

Did you know? Confidence comes with familiarity. As you work with your intuition, you will recognize it and trust it more and more.
The problem I see is the misunderstanding of the true purpose of your imagination and assuming that this doorway is actually blocking the ‘true’ information you seek.
This creates the belief that you either are unable to access your intuition at all… or you are not able to trust the message!
