Edgar Cayce—the Sleeping Prophet

Edgar Cayce

"Know there is forgiveness. Even as the body-mind may forgive others,
so may the body here be forgiven. So may it seek through those promises
of the All-Creative forces for help, yes; help in a physical as well
as a mental manner. Know, indeed, the spirit is willing if ye are in soul
and purpose ready to accept the Christ-Consciousness
that taketh away sin."—Edgar Cayce
"Make the world a better place because you have lived in it."
—Edgar Cayce, Reading 567-5

"There were two rival factions in Atlantis warring for control of their people’s destiny:
the Children of the Law of One, and the Sons of Belial."—Edgar Cayce
"There are more things in heaven and earth,
Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy."—Hamlet

"Some men seek to preserve beauty in an external way, treasuring a vase from the Ming dynasty or an old Chinese print. Others seek to enshrine within the mind the wisdom of the ages gained from a perusal of the many manuscripts remaining upon earth and embodying much of the lore of man. Yet there is retained in the ethers themselves upon the priceless substance of akasha all of the knowledge and beauty which has ever been vouchsafed to man from the heart of the Creator. Every thought and word of God which has come forth from the beginning is there awaiting mankind’s acceptance of his unfailing blessing.

"It is most unfortunate, beloved ones, that whereas in dealing with physical manifestations of beauty, men are able to establish a criteria, a means of discriminatory judgment, whereby they place a value upon works of art which in their opinion have merit and grade them according to their best understanding, this is not so in matters of Spirit.

"Those privileged individuals who are truly able to penetrate the realm of akasha and to see accurately the recordings made there (men and women such as Madame Helena P. Blavatsky, Annie Besant, Edgar Cayce, and others) must, in many cases, be accepted on faith by the multitudes; for they themselves do not have the power of discernment, although they would often like to think they do. The very fact that this is so does make it possible for the charlatan, the pretender, and the self-deceived to say with considerable ease, 'We are also able to read the akashic records.'

"In reality, many of these so-called readings are but subconscious meanderings of the lower mental body, involving all of the unfortunate anomalies of the individual ego recorded in his own etheric body. Others who would act as mediums are often affinitized and attuned to nothing more than their own psychic rate which represents the sum of the individual’s total experience patterns and puts him in tune with other forcefields, discarnate and otherwise, having a similar vibration.

"Because of the great generalization of knowledge about religious matters and the potent radiation of the Christ, pur et simple, imitation of the real can often be factually accomplished and fostered upon an unsuspecting group of individuals who, in subsequent good faith, support by their energies those endeavors which have no eternal validity."

"Some people believe that Edgar Cayce condoned abortion because he said that the soul did not necessarily enter the body at conception.

"During a reading, when asked if the soul entered the child at conception or birth or in between, he replied: 'It may at the first moment of breath; it may some hours before birth; it may many hours after birth. That depends upon that condition, that environ surrounding the circumstance.'

"This does not mean Cayce thought it unnecessary to care for the body before the soul entered
it permanently. For in the very same reading, Cayce answered a question on whether one’s thoughts and impressions during pregnancy had an effect on the child. 'To be sure,' he said. 'Thus, if surrounded with beauty, the more beauty there may be.' Taken in the context of all Cayce’s teachings on karma, these statements on the soul cannot be seen as condoning abortion."

"Men may tamper with scripture. They may rewrite the codes of law to suit themselves and their lowered and lowering standards. But they may never change the records of akasha. In akasha —as the subtle energy and force that permeates the planet and your auras—you will find the record of all past incarnations of yourself, of all previous incarnations of masses of lifewaves who have come here from other planetary homes. You will find the records of civilizations.

"You will find that today those who write the stories of motion pictures and books—such as Taylor Caldwell, who wrote as a child of the story of Atlantis (Romance of Atlantis)—have been given the gift of tying into these akashic records. And they have sat down and written about subjects concerning which they knew nothing. And not only have they recorded for people all sorts of invaluable information that would give keys to the past and past glories of civilizations of great light and scientific achievement, such as in the Edgar Cayce readings—but they have also shown a teaching and a path and an understanding for each individual soul to find his true roots all the way back to the birth in the heart of the Great Central Sun and the descent to incarnation here."

El Morya

"Edgar Cayce, the 'sleeping prophet,' was a devout Christian who came to believe in reincarnation and popularized it for millions of people. He started out as a psychic diagnostician who gave health readings while in a self-induced hypnotic sleep. Although Cayce had never studied medicine, his readings proved accurate and his remedies effective. The cures included everything from drugs and surgery to vitamins and massage.

"Cayce first mentioned reincarnation in a 1923 reading. Referring to the subject of the reading, Arthur Lammers, he said, 'He was once a monk.' Cayce never remembered what he said in his trances, so when his stenographer read those words back to him, they plunged him into turmoil. Didn't reincarnation conflict with scripture? he wondered.

"Cayce had accepted a literal interpretation of the Bible, which, by 1923, he had read once for each of his forty-six years. He knew about reincarnation but considered it a Hindu superstition. After the Lammers reading, Cayce read the Bible straight through again to see if it condemned the idea. He decided it didn't and continued his past-life readings. Ultimately he came to accept reincarnation and predicted his own reincarnation in twenty-second-century Nebraska. Cayce's work has influenced millions of Americans, many of whom will never go back to the orthodox Christian view of life."

Edgar Cayce gave a reading on gold stating that the three wise men brought gold, frankincense and myrrh to the Christ Child as their gifts; these three corresponding and raising the vibration of the physical body, the mind and the soul respectively. Modern medicine uses gold leaf to speed the healing of wounds.


There Is a River: The Story of Edgar Cayce by Thomas Sugrue.This book—which contains many photos of Edgar Cayce, his family, and close friends—is the complete, original biography of the best-documented psychic in America.

It tells the story of how he discovered his astounding psychic gifts and what led him to a life dedicated to helping others. Cayce's "readings," given in a trancelike state, ranged from phenomenal medical cures to advice on spiritual growth, psychology, and prophecy of world events.

A philosophy section covers our origin, purpose, and destinies on the earth, making this book a valuable resource.

Atlantis. The island continent that existed where the Atlantic Ocean now is and that sank in cataclysm (the Flood of Noah) approximately 11,600 years ago as calculated by James Churchward. Vividly depicted by Plato; ‘seen’ and described by Edgar Cayce in his readings; recalled in scenes from Taylor Caldwell’s Romance of Atlantis; scientifically explored and authenticated by the late German scientist Otto Muck, who fixed the time and date of her destruction (by an asteroid that plunged into the Bermuda Triangle with the force of 30,000 hydrogen bombs) at 8 p.m. June 5, 8498 b.c.! In his dialogues, Plato recounts that on “the island of Atlantis there was a great and wonderful empire” that ruled Africa as far as Egypt, Europe as far as Italy, and “parts of the continent” (thought to be a reference to America, specifically Central America, Peru, and the Valley of the Mississippi). It has been postulated that Atlantis and the small islands to its east and west formed a continuous bridge of land from America to Europe and Africa.


Requirements for membership in the order of the Good Samaritan include the successful completion of the Red Cross Multimedia First Aid, Red Cross Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, and the Good Samaritan Foot Reflexology courses.

Those aspiring to be Good Samaritans also study the disciplines presented in Summit University Forum interviews with: preeminent homeopath Dr. Bill Gray; renowned Austrian herbalist Maria Treben; president of Wachters’ Organic Sea Products Corporation, Dr. Joseph Wachter, and
his wife, Ann Marie Wachter, specialist in sea-plant skin-care applications; Jess Stearn, author of Edgar Cayce—The Sleeping Prophet, with Drs. William and Gladys McGarey, noted authorities on the Edgar Cayce cures; Dr. and Mrs. Peter Theiss, experts in the therapeutic application of herbs and ancient herbal remedies; and Dr. Vasant Lad, foremost exponent of Ayurvedic (Hindu) medicine in the United States.

(The above interviews, conducted by Elizabeth Clare Prophet, are available on audio cassettes and Summit University Forum albums.) On December 10, 1984, 29 new members were initiated into the Order of the Good Samaritan at the conclusion of Fall Quarter of Summit University. During the seminar and Fall Quarter, an additional 248 students completed the Good Samaritan Foot Reflexology course.


"For, what is the source of all healing for human ills? From whence doth the body receive life, light or immortality? That the body as an active force is the result of spirit and mind, these coordinating and cooperating, enables the entitv to bring forth in the experience that which may be used—or the using of the abilities of whatever nature. Each soul has within its power that to use which may make it at one with Creative Forces or God. These are the sources from which life, light, and the activity of the body, mind and soul may manifest in whatever may he the active source or principle in the mind of the individual entity."—Edgar Cayce

"There are then, as given, those influences in the nature of man that may supply that needed. For, man in his naturephysical, mental and spiritualis a replica, is a part of whole universal reaction in materiality.

"Hence there are those elements which if applied in a material way, if there is the activity with same of the spirit and mind, may [)ring into the experience of each atom of the body force or cell itself the awareness of the Creative Force of God. It may rise only as high as the ideal held by the body-mind.

"Hence there is the one way, the source. For in Him is all life, all health, all mind, all knowledge and immortality to the soul-mind itself."Edgar Cayce

"And let thy prayer oft be, in thy deeper meditation:

"Father, God, Thou art life! Thou art hope! Thou art justice! Thou art mercy! In these may I, Thy servant, claim Thy care, Thy love; that my body may be, our Savior, may be manifested more and more in the earth . . . cleansed as my mind may be cleansed, that I may be before Thee holy and acceptable unto Thee to do service to my fellow man in Thy name; and that the glory of Thy love as manifested in the Christ, my Savior.

"And be consistent as to the applications of those suggestions and those activities that may bring about this; for every force and every power in the earth is of Him. Will you use it in His service or in defying Him in thy vain glory?"Edgar Cayce

(Q) What was the date of the actual beginning and ending of the construction of the Great Pyramid?

(Q) What was the date B.C. of that period?

(A) 10,490 to 10,390 before the Prince entered into Egypt.

(Q) How was this particular Great Pyramid of Gizeh built?

Edgar Cayce prophecies

"Though there may come those periods when there will be great stress, as brother against brother, as group or sect or race against race—yet the leveling must come.

" . . . There must eventually come a revolution in this country—and there will be a dividing of the sections as one against another. For these are the leveling means and manners to which men resort when there is plenty in some areas and a lack of sustenance in others.

"When many of the isles of the sea and many of the lands have come under the subjugation of those who fear neither man nor the devil; who rather join themselves with that force by which they may proclaim might and power as right, as of a superman who is ideal for a generation to be established, then shall their own land see blood flow, as in those periods when brother fought against brother.

"Without the brotherhood of the world, there will again come Armageddon, and in the same there will be seen that the Christian forces will again move westward!

" . . . The earth will be broken up in many places. The early portion will see a change in the physical aspect of the west coast of America. There will appear open waters in the northern portions of Greenland. There will be seen new lands of the Caribbean Sea . . . South America will be shaken from the uppermost portion to the end; and in the Antarctic off Tierra del Fuego will be land, and a strait with rushing waters.

"When there is first the breaking up of some conditions in the South Sea and those as apparent as the sinking or rising of that which is almost opposite it, or in the Mediterranean, and the Aetna area, then we may know it has begun.

"All over the country we will find many physical changes of a minor or greater degree. The greater change, as we will find, in America, will be the North Atlantic Seaboard. Watch New York!" [311-8; MS-7; April 9, 1932]

"Lands will appear in the Atlantic as well as in the Pacific. And Poseida will be among the first portions of Atlantis to rise again. Expect it in ‘68 or ‘69. Not so far away!

"As to changes . . . the Earth will be broken up in the Western portions of America. The greater portion of Japan must go into the sea. The upper portion of Europe will be changed as in the twinkling of an eye. Land will appear off the East coast of America . . . There will be upheavals in the Arctic and in the Antarctic that will make for the eruption of volcanoes in the Torrid areas, and there will be the shifting then of the poles—so that where there have been those of a frigid or semitropical [climate] it will become more tropical, and moss and fern will grow.

"And these will begin in the period of ‘58 to ‘98 when these will be proclaimed as the periods when the Light will be seen again in the clouds . . . " (3976-15; January 19, 1934)

"As to the conditions in the geography of the world, of the country, changes here are gradually coming about. Many portions of the East Coast will be disturbed, as well as many portions of the West Coast, as well as the central portion of the United States.

"In the next few years, lands will appear in the Atlantic, as well as in the Pacific. And what is the coastline of many an island will be the bed of the ocean.

"Los Angeles, San Francisco . . . will be among those that will be destroyed before New York, even..

"Portions of the now East Coast of New York, or New York City itself, will in the main disappear. This will be another generation, though, here; while the southern portions of Carolina, Georgia, these will disappear. This will be much sooner.

"The waters of the Great Lakes will empty into the Gulf of Mexico rather than over the waterway [St. Lawrence Seaway].

" . . . If there are greater activities on Vesuvius or Pelee [Martinique], then the southern coast of California—and the areas between Salt Lake and the southern portions of Nevada—may expect, within three months following the same, an inundation caused by the earthquakes . . .

"Then [ the area where the entity is now located, Virginia Beach] will be among the safety lands—as will be portions of what now is known as Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois and much of the southern portion of Canada and the eastern portion of Canada; while the western land—much of that is to be disturbed as of course much in other lands." (272-35; January 21, 1936)

"Even many of the battlefields of the present [1941] will be ocean, will be the seas, the bays, the lands over which the new order will carry on their trade as one with another. (1152-11; MS-3; August 13, 1941)

In 1936, Edgar Cayce had a prophetic dream of his reincarnation in the new USA:

"I had been born again in 2100 A.D. in Nebraska. The sea apparently covered all of the western part of the country, as the city where I lived was on the coast. The family name was a strange one. At an early age as a child I declared myself to be Edgar Cayce who had lived 200 years before.

"Scientists, men with long beads, little hair, and thick glasses, were called in to observe me. They decided to visit the places where I said I had been born, lived, and worked in Kentucky, Alabama, New York, Michigan, and Virginia. Taking me with them the group of scientists visited these places in a long, cigar-shaped metal flying ship which moved at a high speed.

"Water covered part of Alabama. Norfolk, Virginia, had become an immense seaport. New York had been destroyed either by war or an immense earthquake and was being rebuilt. Industries were scattered over the countryside. Most of the houses were built of glass. Many records of my work as Edgar Cayce were discovered and collected.

"The group returned to Nebraska, taking the records with them to study... These changes in the earth will come to pass, for the time and times and half times are at an end, and there begins those periods for the readjustments . . . " http://www.chemtrailcentral.com/forum/msg118955.html

Edgar Cayce prophetic reading:

"A new order of conditions is to arise; there must be a purging in high places as well as low; and that there must be the greater consideration of the individual, so that each soul being his brother's keeper. Then certain circumstances will arise in the political, the economic, and whole relationships to which a leveling will occur or a greater comprehension of the need for it."

"This America of ours, hardly a new Atlantis, will have another thousand years of peace, another Millennium. All this done in the same manner that the prayers of ten just men once saved a city. And then the deeds, the prayers of the faithful will glorify the Father as peace and love will reign for those who love the Lord." http://near-death.com/experiences/cayce11.html


"These psychic abilities are latent in each and every individual . . . It may be developed by application, not just thinking—but by applying."—Edgar Cayce

"The psychic or soul forces are akin to what? The Creative Forces, or that called God."—Edgar Cayce

"But making an artistic home, making a home that is the expression of beauty in all its phases, is the greater career of any individual soul. This is the closer expression of that which has been manifested in the experience's of man's advent into materiality."—Edgar Cayce

"What is life? It is a manifestation of a soul. Remember that the self is made up of body, mind, and soul. And the soul would know, does know these are all the gifts of the Creator and the Maker. The purpose in life, then, is not the gratifying of the appetite nor of any selfish desire, but it is that the entity, the soul, may make the earth, where the entity finds its consciousness, a better place in which to live."—Edgar Cayce

"For each entity in the earth is what it is because of what it has been! And each moment is dependent upon another moment. So a sojourn in the earth, as indicated, is as a lesson in the school of life and experience."—Edgar Cayce

"Let rather that fill thy mind and heart which has been given of old,—that it is not who will ascend into heaven to bring us a message,—not who shall come from over the sea that we may hear and heed,—for Lo, the answer to ALL thy problems is in thine own heart!"—Edgar Cayce

"This is a promise to thee, to each soul; yet each soul must of itself FIND the answer within self. For indeed the body is the temple of the living God. There He has promised to meet thee; there He does. And as thy body, thy mind, thy soul is attuned to that divine as answers within, so may ye indeed be quickened to know His purpose; and ye may fill that purpose for which ye entered this experience."—Edgar Cayce
