Sylvia Chappell, Akashic Record Reader

Akashic Records Readings, Past Life Regression, Intuitive Tarot Readings & Courses

SYLVIA CHAPPELL is a gifted communicator who left a very successful career as an advertising writer in 2013 to pursue her “soul’s work” as an intuitive guide and healer. She began to develop her intuitive abilities in the early 90s through volunteer work for the A.R.E. of New York Edgar Cayce Center, which she was instrumental in founding in 1997 and expanding in 2004. She is a Life Member of the A.R.E. of New York, including 6 years service on its Board of Trustees.

Through the Edgar Cayce Study Group work and with the support of gifted teachers at the Center, her intuitive gifts blossomed, first finding expression as a tarot reader, then as an intuitive healer and certified Reiki Master. Her creative explorations of her own past lives for insights to heal the present led her to become a certified Past-Life Regressionist and the catalyst for many remarkable healing transformations. Sylvia brings a wealth of intuitive talents, along with outstanding communications skills, to benefit her clients.


Akashic Records Readings

The Akashic Records are a treasury of your personal experiences and knowledge of the past, present and future… the record of your soul’s every thought, word, action, desire and emotion. My readings bring helpful insights and healing energies from the wise, loving Record Keepers about your soul’s purpose, relationships, career or health to guide you to enlightened choices.

Sylvia was certified by Maureen St. Germain, founder and CEO of Akashic Records International, as an Akashic Records Guide in 2013 and as an instructor for Akashic Records Level 1 in 2016. She is also a certified Past-Life Regressionist and Reiki Master, wonderful adjuncts to her Akashic Records work in helping you to heal past issues that are impacting your present life.

Her readings touch the heart, clarify the soul’s purpose, and often, when directed by your Record Keepers, serve as the conduit for helpful, healing energies from the Record Keepers, Ascended Masters and Archangels themselves. She is often guided to tone healing energies for you. Toning is one of the most powerful healing energies there is because the tones allow your body to resonate to a new vibration, instantaneously changing who you are and who you can become.

You can change your past lives! This is the profoundly healing, transformative approach to past-life regression that Sylvia practices. It goes far beyond conventional Past-Life regression therapy, making it possible to completely transform negative patterns of self-condemnation, self-judgement, guilt or blame through love, forgiveness and grace. By choosing to meet issues with love instead of fear, you change your past-life timeline. The healing effects ripple outward to this and all other lifetimes. She learned this revolutionary approach from Kev O’Kane, a highly trained and innovative hypnotist, regressionist and teacher who certified Sylvia as a Past-Life Regressionist in 2009.

PLR sessions are available in person or via Skype; Initial Session $333 (approx. 3 hrs); subsequent sessions (approx. 2 hours), $222.
Note: An Akashic Records reading is recommended before a PLR session, particularly if you are new to this process. It will help us determine if a regression would be beneficial to you. Frequently, through my Akashic Records readings, important past-life issues can be identified, understood, and in many cases, cleared.

Testimonials from Akashic Records clients:Sylvia is very gifted and spot on! It was a very healing reading and just what I needed at the right time. Sylvia also used chanting/music to heal and affirm during the session. The reading connected some of the dots in my life from past lives to this life…. Don’t hesitate, just book the session now. It will be a wonderful gift to yourself! I recommend it 1000%

 Having my Akashic records read by Sylvia was truly a transformative experience…. Sylvia’s connection to the divine source is evident in her channeling gifts…. She provided so many insightful explanations for questions I have regarding aspects of my family dynamics and things I have known all my life but did not know why or how. The reading unlocked the mysteries of my life’s puzzling questions. Since my reading with Sylvia, I can physically feel a frequency shift and blockages clearing from my heart and throat chakras, giving way to more love, forgiveness and clarity in communication with those family members I held as adversaries. I am able to become less judgmental and more understanding.        

—Linda L.

The session was progressively engaging and empowering. I experienced a personal shift, as the deeper aspects of my soul were explored. I came away with a greater clarity about my calling and purpose for this lifetime. I had a better understanding of the impact of past influences, and an awareness of who I was becoming spiritually. This was a pivotal step in my life’s journey that grounded me and taught me to let go of what no longer served me.

—Joan A.

Sylvia Chappell cured my lifelong lower backache over the telephone during one Akashic Records reading. This Akashic Records reading is one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself because it gave me new insights into my life, into my relationships, into my backache! I cannot recommend her readings enough. It is gift of self-knowledge… an excellent investment to make. Your life with be changed for the better when you do it. 
—Diana Montford, Host of the Diana Montford TV Show

What an enlightening experience with Sylvia and her reading of my Akashic records! So many things came to light and started making sense in the present. Experiences that repeated over and over for the past 40 years… and my recurrent dreams finally got to fit in the bigger picture of what I was doing in the past 200 years and its relationship with the gifts that I keep on awakening in this lifetime. The reading brought so much more clarity and motivation to continue pursuing my healing career. Thanks Sylvia, you are a truly gift for all of us.

—Rossanna W.

Sylvia, the channeled Akashic reading you provided for me was amazing! I listened to the recording again and heard things I missed. It has provided so much insight and understanding in my life that I haven’t experienced before in any other reading. You have such a gentle and loving spirit and I am so grateful for this experience with you. Thank you for the healing work you do!  

  —Mary M.

My akashic records reading with Sylvia was a wonderful surprise… I had previously gotten readings from two other individuals and I’d been disappointed both times….[Their information]… was similar to getting a psychic reading. I didn’t believe that was all the records had to offer. In the session with Sylvia, I was given detailed accounts of two past lives that were currently affecting my ability to forward my career. After bringing forth this wisdom from the records, Sylvia asked if I was interested in clearing these blocks. I agreed and then Sylvia began the healing portion of the session. This was another surprise, but a delightful one. When Sylvia concluded the session, I felt I was now ready to embark on the next steps of my journey and that the possibilities were endless. Overall, it was a amazing experience from start to finish.  

  —L.R., New Jersey

Thanks for all the wonderful work you do! The readings have made such a huge impact on my life! I feel like I am a different person from the person I was before the first reading. I will definitely be in touch for the next one after I have assimilated this one.     

   —Elles T., after the 3rd reading

Testimonials from Past-Life Regression clients:

I never knew that a past life could be changed. When I ‘awoke’ I was tired, energized, dumbfounded, wise and present all at the same time. I knew my relationship was healed… I consciously cleansed any obstacles or unresolved matters I had with my ex-boyfriend with this past life regression session. Sylvia, you were fantastic! Healing in this way is the only version of past life regression that should be conducted. The point of this lifetime should be to move forward in a healthy way without clinging to past mistakes or past experiences and if it means changing the recollection one has of the past then that is the way to go! AWESOME! 


Initially, before we began the session, I had a concern (small, but admittedly present) that I might feel ‘silly’ during the process, or that I might feel as if I was going to be self-inducing some kind of imaginative sojourn into a past lifetime. Instead, I found it very deep and meaningful on so many levels. Both [lifetimes] felt equally ‘real’ and I sensed I was being given a great gift by being able to access this information. I could probably write volumes about a subtle shift in consciousness, but the main changes I’m noticing are less of a tendency to go on ‘automatic pilot’ in the way I am perceiving, and reacting to, my daily reality. Also, I feel a bit more confident in my ability to create artistically – in a sense of ‘giving up’ perfectionist control and embracing more of a feeling as if I am a channel or conduit for creative energy. It’s as if I’m ‘getting out of my own way’ more…. I realize I could not have accessed this kind of experience without your expert guidance–your sensitivity, skill and compassion during the session–and I am profoundly grateful to you.

  –David L.

Two weeks after my marvelous past life exploration and transformation I still feel the energetic changes through my entire being. I can’t really explain it with words but I know that my subconscious was shifted in a way that has allowed me to be more open to do inner healing related to past trauma (this lifetime). I also felt an incredible feeling of peace after the session.

  —Fatima E.

Testimonial from a Past-Life Regression AND Akashic Records client:

“Sylvia’s past life regression work is to be incarnated for. Never has a session with any spiritual initiate been so powerfully wholesome and informative. The level of access into the akashic records is profound and tunes to a channel that is not only clear but full of love and light. Wonderful shifts in perception and a greater knowledge of my soul history continue to leap up at me even after the sessions.”
