The most profound body of psychic work of the last century was that of Edgar Cayce. A humble and kind gentleman from Kentucky, Cayce’s readings are also the most well documented. Having had a decades long fascination with Cayce’s work, I finally had the opportunity to see it first hand.
As I thumbed through book after book at the Edgar Cayce Institute, the Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.), I was struck with the vastness of the reach of subject matter. These remarkable readings stretched from healing cancer and arthritis to the origins of humankind, life in Lemuria, Atlantis, Egypt and ET visitation. It appears there was nothing that was past the reach of the Source that spoke through the man known as the Sleeping Prophet from the turn of the 20th century through WWII. There also seemed to be no limits to the imagination of those asking questions, which allowed for such breathtaking revelations. Amazingly, the vast majority of the 14,000 readings recorded proved to be accurate, at least those that can be substantiated due to their modern time frame.
While Cayce’s life was mostly dedicated to reading for people from around the world who were in need of healing, his abilities did not escape the attention of the rich and powerful. Among his thousands of documented readings were high profile clients such as Tesla and Edison (who wanted to better understand the deep nature of electricity), movie stars, oil barons, Wall Street bankers, military leaders and President Woodrow Wilson.
For a taste of Cayce’s extraordinary life I read the biography Edgar Cayce: An American Prophet by Sidney Kirkpatrick, whom I had the pleasure of interviewing while in Virginia Beach. Kirkpatrick’s book is believed to be the most enlightening and thorough work on Cayce’s life, which I focused on in an interview with him, due out next month.
Because I have a deep fascination with the origins of the human species, which I have recently addressed in my book Soulo Journey, I seized the opportunity to interview John Van Auken. Van Auken has been studying Cayce for more than 40 years and has a lively and even devilish style of relaying the chronology of the peopling of this planet from Lemuria forward. In truth, the story begins before Lemuria, as nonphysical Beings.
Cayce’s source also regularly spoke of the value in choosing to remember our dreams as messages from the divine part of ourselves. ‘The Father of Modern Dream Therapy’, Henry Reed offered us a view of dreaming I had never been exposed to in all my years of research – dreaming for one another is one of the best incentives in remembering the dream!
All of of these interviews, plus two more, will be coming up in the next couple of months on CMN. Dream on!
