    I stumbled upon a book of his life a few months ago, then felt pulled here and compelled to read the book. I really did not know anything about Edgar or his life or work. I am now over half way thru the book and flabbergasted.

    There have been a few quotes in the book that were meant for me to find, including one that literally felt like a slap on the face. Dang ...

    Has anyone else delved into the life of this man?

    Amazing story


    My dad gave me that book to read when I was about 12 years old. He said, "Just put this book up somewhere until you really feel like reading it." Being curious, I started to read a bit of it then, but I couldn't get into it. I had a couple more starts like that over the next couple years, then when I was 15 I picked the book up one day and couldn't put it down until I finished it. My dad always told me, "Knowledge will come to you when you are ready for it." I think he was right, because I know at 12 I couldn't understand much of the deeper concepts in the book.


    Even to this day I find Edgar Cayce amazing!


    I visited the ARE in Virginia one time back in 1981 (I was only 16). I loved it, and have always wanted to return, but have never been able to visit again.

    Edgar Cayce was my introduction to reincarnation,too. I had nightmares of a concentration camp life that I could not explain.My biggest problem was that when I had these dreams I could smell people burning. All I had to do was think about it and the smell would return.I had the dreams from early childhood. My husband brought home a book one day that he had borrowed from a friend and he thought I might like to read. It was like a lightbulb went off in my head and I realized what caused my nightmares. After I realized it was a past life memory the dreams stopped, I guess they had served their purpose of reminding me of a prior life.It took almost ten more years before I could no longer smell burning flesh when I thought about it. I have had a few other flashes of other lives but I credit Edgar Cayce with opening my mind to past lives.

    We were over-Caycefied growing up. As far as my dad was concerned, he was the greatest thing since sliced bread. He had one book by him* (don't recall which one) and every time a Cayce documentary came on TV, the whole world had to stop while he watched it. I really got tired of it and, as a result, have never read any of his books. I have thought about grabbing one, but when I start to get serious about it, I just keep hearing the same old Cayce this, Cayce that, in my mind and move on to other things.


    So, to give it one more chance to not repulse me due to over-exposure, can you recommend a short work?


    *I think it was written by him. It was many years ago, and I'm pretty sure he was the author.

    This is my first exposure to Edgar Cayce so it is the only one I know about. It was written by a man who lived with him and tells of his beginnings and what made him become who he was. I think you might like it as it is not so much about when he was huge and famous but his life when he was young and had no idea who he would become.


    One thing that struck me was that although he was giving readings for and saving complete strangers he did not do the same for his own family when he really needed to.


    In this book he is very humble. I suggest you try it. Maybe if you knew the man behind the phenomenon it will allow you to understand a bit why your dad felt as he did.

    As far as I know, you won't find many books written by Edgar Cayce himself, but ones by those who were in his inner circle. I have always been fascinated by Edgar as well. I think the first thing I had learned about him was his ability as a boy to sleep with his schoolbooks under the pillow and pass the tests the following day.


    I just recently took out a book from our public library here called Edgar Cayce, Modern Prophet. It's actually four different books all in one: Edgar Cayce on Prophecy, Edgar Cayce on Religion and Psychic Experience, Edgar Cayce on Mysteries of the Mind, and Edgar Cayce on Reincarnation.

    Information about and from Edgar Cayce seems to be all over the place. On some alternative health sites I look at I see his name and methods mentioned from time to time.

    I literally just finished reading this article, "Edgar Cayce On Human Origins", when I popped on over here and saw this thread. There is much information about the whys and wherefores of reincarnation. Here is the link:

    Oh, I know who he is. It would be like growing up with one parent being a complete and utterly hard-core Elvis fan. You can't help but know about the person. According to my dad, the guy was infallible. He was really a fanatic.


    Anyway, I found this bit. Granted it's from a skeptic website, and skeptics will go out of their way to disbelieve anything, but it brings up some interesting points about the man:

    Some people will point to 9-11 and suggest that his NYC prediction came true, but a few buildings, no matter how tragic the circumstances, hardly makes for the desctruction of the whole city.


    I don't believe the man to be a fraud. I believe he merits considerable investigation, because however it worked, he did help a lot of people. I'd like to know how it worked, whether genuine or the placebo effect mentioned above. I don't think he intentionally set out to hand people placebos for their ailments, but it speaks volumes about the healing powers of the mind, doesn't it?

    Thank you for posting the article. I would love to read into some of the cures to see what I can make of it.


    In my own family I have witnessed what a brain surgeon called a "document-able medical miracle" so I do have faith that if it could happen in my family it could happen elsewhere.


    I believe he was given the power of healing by God (or as some would say the Universe). In the book I am reading it did say that not all of the cures worked because not all of them were carried out as they were supposed to be.


    There is so much to research and discover on this subject, I have merely scratched the surface.


    Of course, others may not have the same belief systems as I do. We each have to decide what we believe is possible, and what we believe is not.

    Wilcock may or may not be Cayce's incarnation, but I don't find them similar in any way. I read Cacey's biography, and quite a lot of his writings, and about him. I've also watched Wilcock, and read one of his books. I can't find any similarities between the two men. What did you find similar?

    I don't believe that similar looks are any proof of same soul incarnations, but who knows ... I remember some funny pictures in which dogs and their masters had similar looks :)

    Hello and thank you for accepting me in your group. I was given this link through a Christian friend in the US. We live in New Zealand. I first came across Mr Cayce and the writings about him in the 1990's. To give some backgkround I come from a culture that was steeped in spirit and in fact was dominated by it. As a child I was absolutely terrified by it and couldn't wait to get away. I did escape for 38 years then I began experiencing the overwhelming desire to walk the spirit path again. It happened all so subtly and before I knew it I was in the midst of spiritism. Not participating in it but observing and trying to make sense of it and at the same time keeping my distance. That is where I heard about Mr Cayce. Please forgive me I don't want to write a book on it so I will keep it short. In the late 90's I lost my son to suicide. We were 3 weeks living in a foreign land not knowing anyone. I flew home to my NZ, buried my son and returned all in the space of 4 days, I spent a lot of time alone in tears during the day while my husband was at work. My husband was not a believer in spiritism in fact said it was anti-christian. Anyway one night in the early hours of the morning he woke me as I was sobbing in my sleep. I suggested I go downstairs and make a cup of tea but before I could get out of bed he put his arm out across me to stop me moving and began talking. I knew straight away what had happened. Long story short from that day on my husband does exactly as Mr Cayce did. I had kept this under wraps until the forces of the universe worked with us where he is now fully accepting of his situation as a Seer. I do all the recordings. The reason we know who we talk with is becasue I insisted on knowing who I was talking to. My husband has a legal and corporate background so not someone who is easily persuaded. With all the information given, the experiences and evidence he has had before him, he has no doubt now that it is true. With this acceptance of his gift he is now writing books himself 4 eBooks and 2 printed so far rather than someone else writing them as was the case with Mr Cayce. We have also written an ebook on his past life as a Greek Monk in the 13th century his now spirit guide was the Abbott of the Monastery yet to be published. I am happy to share informtion also as we have a greater understanding of Mr Cayces gift and know that the forces he communicated to were definately from the heavenly fourth dimension.

    Welcome to this forum Azuria. Edgar was still alive when I was a child, I often wished that I had the opportunity to have had a reading by him. I have read several books both about him and about his readings. I look forward to reading about what you and your husband are doing.

    Thank you Ken. My husband was also a child when Edgar was born. We have done several past life readings for people one of which I shall share with you here which again to us is proof of reincarnation ... of course I will not be using any names ....
    Reading:
    Your association with your spirit guide goes back over many eons of time. The name she likes is Aymee given that in the different lifetimes she has had many names as have you.

    The lifetime she is presenting from is the life you both had in the south of France. This was in the lower Pyrenees, before it rises in the Basque area which in those times was a very remote place.

    She has been with you in four other previous life times and in each one you have had trouble with men. Your path is not with men, which is why you have relationship troubles. You suffered emotionaly because you had a man who loved you, yet you ignored him because he was working class.

    Eventually you entered a Convent which was the correct path for you. The Order was very strict, with very little communication and a lot of Bible Study. Your daughter also appears in several of your past lives.

    In your life in the south of France, your daughter was the Mother Superior of the Order that you entered. When one entered a religious order they selected a Holy name. Your daughter didn’t do this because of her dominant nature which hasn’t changed. She used her own surname and was known as Mother Maupassant.

    She was your cousin but neither of you knew of it until you became ill. You had poor health and breathing problems exaggerated because of the damp and cold conditions in that stone building. There was great sadness at your passing which was in your mid 30’s.

    In this life, you have neglected the purpose for your return, which is to complete your study of the Bible. This work was not completed in that past life either and should be your ambition. You loved reading the Bible which is a good place for you to begin.

    Your first incarnation on to the earth was in Alaska in an area that bridged into Asia which was brief. You have had two lives in the south of France which were in quick succession. I (Aymee) was your mother in the first and your sister in the second. It is common for guides to have had close connections like that. Having had lives in France it should not be a problem for you to re learn the language. You will enjoy reading French poetry.

    In our life as sisters there were no other siblings. We had a lot of cousins who were Bohemian travelers or gypsies. You could read and explain the Bible to all the members of our family.

    You have recently been visiting psychics and mediums. I can tell you that I have never come through to speak through them because they are not connected . I am in heaven and only those that communicate with those of us in the light, can communicate particularly at this very high level.

    There are seven levels on our side and it is very, very rare for a sensitive to communicate to the higher levels unless they themselves are at this level spiritually. The last person on earth to communicate to this level was Edgar Cayce which is why I have not come through till now. Test every spirit as to whether they are from God or not.

    You seem confused? Understand that everything in life is a choice. If you are getting pleasure from your choice, you need to examine it. Pleasure is a downward spiral and a temporary experience. The dark side uses pleasure to tempt you and lead you their way. Remember the parable. The road to perdition is wide and smooth. The road to the light is a narrow, stony and hard path.

    You are also attending circles to learn how to communicate with spirits which is not relevant and not where you should be. Your daughter suffers depression which is diet related. The cure is in your own hands.

    It has not been easy for you with your daughter as she has grown. You were previously told that your daughter is an old soul. It is rather that she is a dominant soul and always has been. Her purpose in this lifetime is to learn humility.

    Azuria, as interesting as it is, your post borders upon a no-no here on the forum. There is to be no promotion of services as per the guidelines that I hope that you have read. I certainly do not wish to dissuade you from posting and being an active member, I'm stating this only as a caution in case you had not read the rules for posting. Although, if there was no requirement of payment, that would not be a problem I suppose - a sticky-wicket.

    We are about as far apart as possible geographically as I am not far from where Edgar did a lot of his work near the Dayton Ohio area. The reading sounds similar to Cayce's although it seems to have somewhat fewer biblical connotations and the verbiage is a lot easier to read.

    I am curious as to how your husband's information is accessed and how it has affected your lives.

    Hello Ken, I am sorry my post may have been taken as promoting this as something for commercial gain. Quite the opposite. My only interest was to support the view for reincarnation which I know is true. I have knowledge of several of my lifetimes, who I was and where. I shared the information so others may test it for themselves through their own inner being as to wether it sits well with them and supports the idea of reincarnation or not. I understand there is a lot of scepticism toward reincarnation in the western world due to religious bias's. To be quite honest although I am from a culture that has spirit awareness I'd never heard of it until I walked the path again.

    I have a good collection of Edgar Cayce's books and read a lot of literature and watch documentaries and I reference everything with the Bible. I am quite positive in my mind that Mr Cayce was a genuine Seer and a man of God. A lot of the information Mr Cayce was given has been expanded upon to give use a clearer picture of the task ahead of us.

    Yes I understand that we are at opposite ends of the globe but distance as you know is no obstacle for the forces of the universe.

    My husband goes to sleep, they speak through him I record the conversations. What this has done for our lives has strengthened our committment as Christians and the blessing for us has been that we have been rejuvenated physically for the task we have ahead of us. Please remove the post should you deem it to be outside of your guidelines.

    Thank you and may the blessings peace and grace of our Lord Jesus be with you in all that you do for other also.

    Hi Azuria,

    Welcome to the forum. I’ve read your posts with interest. I have no knowledge about Mr. Cayce, but he is on my ‘to do list’ for quite some time.

    thank you fireflydancing ... I have read a lot of Mr Cayce's work through the books that have been written about him. From my own communications and knowledge I believe his work to be reliable and true. Although we have the same gift as Mr Cayce and access to the Akashic records we are not going to be doing readings on the scale that he did. It is secondary to our mission.

    Job 33.:23 “If there be a messenger with him, an interpreter, one among a thousand, to shew unto man his uprightness.”

    I am a spirit being living in the heavenly fourth dimension.

    From our observations in heaven we see that Christianity is in decline in the importance in western societies. Many have turned their backs on the purpose of life which is spiritual growth. Evolution of the Soul occurs through a series of human lives until the point is reached where the need to return to earth is outgrown as like Christ we develop towards near perfect souls to be at one with God.

    As you can appreciate each time we reincarnate to the earth we are born into different families, different cultures and different countries.

    Hi Azuria, first of all, very sorry to hear that you lost your son in the late 90's, I cannot imagine what you must have gone through.
    Your story is interesting, and it is not until you have direct personal experience that you believe 'things', I believe Cayce discoever his 'gift' or 'ability' when he wasn't well himself.
    So you see in difficult times, sometimes, something can come to us what we somehow need in out life experience. Good for you that you could make something positive from it.
    Good luck with your books.
