|A place to share information on psychic phenomena in general and the Edgar Cayce 'readings' specifically.|
Who was Edgar Cayce?
Considered by many to be the greatest psychic of the 20th Century, Edgar Cayce was born on March 18, 1877 in Hopkinsville, Kentucky and died on January 3, 1945 in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
From 1901, when he was 24, until his death he gave over 14,000 'readings', many of which were transcribed by a stenographer and are available for research.
A "reading" was a discourse given by Mr. Cayce while he was lying down with his eyes closed and in an altered state of consciousness. Delivered in his own normal voice with only a few exceptions, the discourses he gave were recorded stenographically and later typed. They cover such a wide array of subject matter that they are indexed under more than 10,000 major subject headings, with more than 225,000 index cards.
Most of the readings were given for individuals and, therefore, deal with specific personal questions concerning various aspects of physical, mental, spiritual, vocational and interpersonal life. Some of these readings, however, were complete discourses on topics such as meditation, Bible interpretation, and world affairs. It was not necessary for the person obtaining the reading to be present: Mr. Cayce was able to describe individuals and diagnose their physical condition with surprising accuracy, even though they might have been hundreds of miles away. From these readings, thousands of people reported being helped, often in ways which transformed their lives. Studied as a whole, the readings provide specific procedures which many consider helpful in treating many illnesses. And now, decades after Mr. Cayce's death, his readings continue to inspire, educate and amaze those who research them.
For a more in-depth view of Edgar Cayce we recommended reading the following books:
There is a River by Thomas Sugrue
Edgar Cayce - The Sleeping Prophet by Jess Stearn
above books can be found in many public Libraries.
The Edgar Cayce readings view health holistically, that is, you must care for the entire body to stay healthy and treat the entire body when ill. Although an illness may seem to be located in one area of the system, it was able to manifest because the entire body becomes 'unbalanced' and the weakest area is where the symptoms or 'illness' appear.
Did Edgar Cayce really talk about past lives or reincarnation??? Yes, but only after much soul searching and reading the Bible where he came across several passages that could be referring to reincarnation. It our hope that you will read this material with an 'open mind'. Dr. Gina Cerminara wrote an excellent book (Many Mansions) based on the Edgar Cayce readings on reincarnation.
