What if you could travel backwards and forwards through Time to objectively watch your life unfold before your eyes so that you can assess not only the good and bad you had done, or will do, but also how experiences affect you? What if it were also possible to view the lives of other members of your family, including those of past and future generations? Keiran Russell is given this opportunity, though certainly not in a way he might have expected. In his case, he dies and views what some eastern mystics call the Akashic Records -- a theosophical term that refers to a universal "filing system" which records every thought, word, and deed. In doing so, he realizes that not only did he exist before his birth, but he also had the opportunity to choose the life necessary for his soul's growth.
