The Time: 1073 AD

The Place: Gibraltar

We enter an esoteric time where every human being has a 'Shadow.'  Shadows show up in animal form. Through working with them, we can uncover limiting beliefs and thoughts within ourselves; we can integrate and heal our wounds to ultimately step into all of who we are and our own destinies. However, in order to interact with and get to know our Shadow, we first have to be open to the idea of them.

Crown Jewels: The Akasha Records is also designed to go hand-in-hand with a 30 day Series called 30 Days of Authenticity. Each day of the 30 day series holds an "Akasha Record" with the goal of allowing you to individually go through Akasha's journey. The idea is to get to know and embrace your own Shadow and love all of who you are, just as you are. 



On the night of the December Full Moon, a young woman is grieving the recent loss of her first love and has a fated meeting with a life-changing being.

Book One of Crown Jewels finds us connecting with Akasha and her sister Sophia. Akasha has just had a vision of a Crown, but is unsure of what it means. She knows that it's tied to her ancestors, but that is all she is consciously aware of at this moment in time. 


We also meet Tariq, who has recently discovered a Ruby Red Ring through his work with his own Shadow, Leo the Lion. The Crown and the Ring come together to make up the Crown Jewels. These Jewels allow us to travel through time and space. If used correctly, they have the ability to completely transform the world.


Akasha and Tariq soon realize that they have a destiny that is much larger than themselves; a combined mission to bridge the divide that exists between the "Worlds of Light and Dark". But are they willing to do the work and dive back into the Ancient Ways? Are they willing to ultimately be brave enough to step into their destiny?
