Everyone has certain people that impressed him or her from a young age. Maybe it’s Abe Lincoln, your Great Aunt who was still mobile at 100 years of age, or perhaps your minister. For me, people of interest likely didn’t let being ahead of their times or not fitting in with the local mentality keep them from being who they were; genuinely ahead of the curve. They let their ego's drop long enough to access unfiltered information and then used it judiciously.
Edgar Cayce was one of those people for me.
Of course, he was gone long before my time, but his name was often said with a murmured hush as if it were a naughty name or a name held in high reverence. It wasn’t until I was older that I realized it was the latter and not the former. So, my titillation for Edgar Cayce went from thinking him a forbidden bad boy to a prophet beyond compare.
The biggest lingering question I have is “where’d he get this information?”
This simple man was born in Kentucky in 1877, and passed away in Virginia in 1945, living during a time period before the “new age” ideals. Some say this prophet and healer, who was also a devout Christian, was accessing information from Akashic records (see my earlier post for more info on this), and others say he was psychic and channeling information from “the other side,” perhaps from a wise spirit guide, yet others believe he had a direct line to God.
Most have come to the conclusion that his ability to access information began with a blow to the back of the head as an adolescent.
For some background, we’ll look to the Edgar Cayce Organization and their description; “Edgar Cayce demonstrated the uncanny ability to put himself into some kind of self-induced sleep state by lying down on a couch, closing his eyes, and folding his hands over his stomach. This state of relaxation and meditation enabled him to place his mind in contact with all time and space. From this state he could respond to questions as diverse as, "What are the secrets of the universe?" to "How can I remove a wart?" His responses to these questions came to be called "readings" and contain insights so valuable that even to this day individuals have found practical help for everything from maintaining a well-balanced diet and improving human relationships to overcoming life-threatening illnesses and experiencing a closer walk with God.”
Although not educated in medicine, this man was able to diagnose and prescribe treatments to patients who came to him seeking readings. He also made an enormous amount of predictions about our world that have become uncannily accurate over time such as the stock market crash, the first and second World Wars, the Holocaust, and he event predicted our changing earth poles around the year 2000. He believed in reincarnation, as well as Atlantis.
He predicted for us many earth changes that are significant. He also predicted we would come across hidden stored information exposed in Egypt (beneath the paws of the Sphinx in a chamber), Bimini, and Yucatan, but this will not be found until we reach the appropriate level of consciousness.
Let’s look at him within the context of his life and times. This was a man who didn’t take well to books, who was brought up in a very devout Christian home, in a time period of great conservatism, with no spiritualists at his beck and call. The very last thing a person of simple mind, simple means, and simple needs would desire is to be thrust forward into a world of medicine and predictions, neither of which he had any personal knowledge of.
This brings us back to the context in which he began his readings, the blow to the head. Should this be an injury resulting in epilepsy from the visual cortex in the back of the head where he was hit, it would certainly be an interesting brand, as he could induce his meditative state at will and epilepsy, quite obviously, is not a controlled event. From descriptions of his meditative state, it would appear he was accessing the theta mind state which is also associated with remote viewing. Had he used this technique but was able to drift through time instead of places on earth? Why would a blow to the head necessarily bless him with a direct line to God? Hmm...
I’d very much like to hear your take on Edgar Cayce and where you think he was getting his information.
