Edgar Cayce (Part II)

Much has been written on this interesting man, so I will keep this post just to a few of his actual prophecies. The one thing that he referred to over and over was man's free will. He felt nothing was etched in stone, that could not be changed by going in a different direction. He was a deeply religious man, and remained so throughout his lifetime. Here then, are seven prophecies that came true, and seven that have yet to materialize. You can decide for yourself what to believe or what not to believe. This is merely food for thought.

  1. Stock Market Crash of 1929 (reading was in 1925)
  2. WWII (reading was in 1935)
  3. Shifting of the earth's poles (reading in 1936) - (See Nova's program entitled "Magnetic Storm")
  4. Convergence of Communications Companies (reading in 1929) - (mergers have occurred)
  5. There was a Community of People Called the Essenes (reading in 1942) - Texts attributed to the then little-known sect called the "Essenes" discovered with the Dead Sea Scrolls in 1947.
  6. Blood as a Diagnostic Tool (reading in 1927) - Once considered the stuff of science fiction.
  7. La Nina and El Nino Effect (reading in 1926) - A connection between temperature of deep water currents and weather.
  1. Will our lifespans of human beings be extended? (reading in 1926) Cayce saw human beings living far beyond what we are living now - which is an extension way beyond what people were living during his lifetime. Some have interpreted his readings as people dying when they were ready to move on.
  2. WWIII - (reading in 1941) - Conflict in the Persian Gulf - Cayce talked about "strife in Libya, Egypt, Ankara, Syria through the straits above Australia, in the Indian Ocean and Persian Gulf". With all that is going on in the Middle East, would anyone be surprised?
  3. Will we discover the design for a self-fueling perpetual-motion machine? (reading 1928) Yes, "once started, it would be kept in motion by created energy of it's own source". Could this be something that emerges from the Green Revolution?
  4. A new field of science will be developed based on a psychic/spiritual phenomenon. (reading 1939) One suggestion was that this might be based on Near Death Experiences, or NDE's.
  5. China will become a Christian nation - (reading 1943) It is felt Cayce based this on Gnostic Christianity, (different from traditional or modern Christianity). "Personal applications of the spiritual would become paramount to the Chinese people." Now that religion is no longer outlawed in China, who knows? He also saw the height of civilization moving from the West to China.
  6. Will the Three Halls of Records be discovered? (reading 1932) "According to the readings the people of Atlantis became aware that their civilization was about to be destroyed. As a result they hid identical records of Atlantean civilization in Bimini, Egypt, and the Yucatan." It is these records that will be discovered.
  7. Is a new "root race" evolving? (reading 1942) Edgar Cayce information suggests that our consciousness has expanded and evolved over time, discussed throughout the Bible. He felt the "next great evolution would be tied to a new 'fifth root race', and would come about through personal soul development in order to resonate to that new evolutionary occurrence - New Age - a new understanding of humanity's relationship to God."
So there you have it. An extremely condensed version of the great Edgar Cayce, using different sources. I swapped out the prophesy on the return of Jesus Christ, because it was just too long, but you can read about it here. It all sounds pretty far out, but then I guess some of those that have come to pass also sounded pretty impossible when he did the readings. Many books have been written about him. One that I liked was "There Is A River" by Thomas Sugrue. The Edgar Cayce Association for Research and Enlightenment, or A.R.E., is located in Virginia Beach, VA.

Thanks for these pieces about Edgar Cayce. I studied Jin Shin Do at his institute in Virginia Beach - such a good vibe there!

What I love about his story is how fully he trusted his dreams. He really let go of doubt, which is why I think he was so accurate.

Very cool! Thanks Nancy.

Reya - I'm not familiar with Jin Shin Do, but have heard about the Institute for years. How great you have had the opportunity to study there. And yes, he just didn't seem to have an ego-attachment to his readings. There were what they were.

Brian Miller said...

what interesting predictions...especially the three halls of records...would like to read a few of those. the perpetual motion machine would be great as well. spend way too much in gas!

Sink said...

Very interesting...I do believe in letting go...releasing doubt...going at life as if it is all about learning. Letting fear go.
I need to go

Verily I go. said...

I need to read more too, this was awesome.

Hi there, found you through Alicia's blog, boylerpf... at least I think that's where I just was ;-)

I've been supremely fascinated by Edgar Cayce since childhood. I do believe he had a great gift of vision, & through that, was able to help people heal their bodies & souls.

A true genius he was, tapped into the universe in a way that boggles the mind. I am not a student, nor a studier of Cayce, but a believer that many, perhaps most, of his readings have & will come to pass.

I do hope the three halls are discovered in my lifetime.

"'Will we discover the design for a self-fueling perpetual-motion machine? (reading 1928) Yes, "once started, it would be kept in motion by created energy of it's own source.'"

This one # 3 sounds like the anti-gravity, free energy technology that is being developed by various scientists and researchers.

Kathy's Klothesline said...

Much to think about here. Good post, thanks.

Lover of Life/ Nancy said...

Brian - It sounds like the vernacular of the time doesn't it - "perpetual motion machine".

Sink - He did the readings, but was very normal, humble, and religious otherwise.

Verily - The book is very good, I thought, if you have more interest. I'm sure the library has most of the ones written about him and his readings.

Julie - Hi, thanks for stopping by. He has always interested me, too. Especially because so many tried to expose him as a fraud, but were unsuccessful.

Linda - I hadn't heard of that new energy. Anti-gravity? Tell us more..

Kathy - There are reams of material about him!

Alicia @ boylerpf said...

Truly fascinating material. I am not familiar with his readings but given the background and information, it sounds like someone I would like to read about.

smiles4u said...

Both of these posts were very interesting. Gives me much to think about. I do think there is a lot of truth behind him because he wasn't doing it for the money or fame.

Lover of Life/ Nancy said...

Alica - He really was fascinating.

Smiles- No, in fact he worked until he was so bombarded with requests that he had to charge a fee, and then never became a rich man.

Marguerite said...

Thanks so much for the most interesting posts, the book referral and the links. I will look forward to reading the book. Happy 4th!!!

Anonymous said...

I will be watching to see if these things happen! thanks for a very concise yet interesting post!

Deboshree said...

It's fascinating and scary at the same time. How can a man know all this?
Thanks for sharing the information. I'll keep it in mind.^_^


Natalie said...

I was reading and going, Yep,yep,yep.xx♥

Leah J. Utas said...

Cayce fan here. I am so looking forward to the halls of records being discovered. My question is, will we hear about it? That's the kind of discovery that would be kept as quiet as possible for as long as possible.

Lover of Life/ Nancy said...

Marguerite - Hope you have a fun-filled 4th. I know you will!

Nancy - I hope the Hall of Records gets discovered. I have always been fascinated with Atlantis.

Deboshree - He was unique, that's for sure.

Natalie - Interesting stuff, huh?

Leah - I read something where some new land was recently discovered in Bimini...

asweetcakes said...

This is really interesting. I'm glad you wrote it and glad i read it. Edgar Cayce is really fascinating - World War III eh?

PeacefulWmn9 said...

Cayce, a very insightful man. It will be interesting to see if any of his other predictions will come true in our lifetime.

Nancy said...

asweetcakes - He always emphasized "free will" - maybe if enough of us say no to WWIII - it won't happen.

Peaceful - Yeah, I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Anonymous said...

I certainly hope there is not going to be a WWIII. I know my husband would be in the midst of it and that scares me almost to death.

There is a belief called "The Indigo Children." You should check it out. It's about children being born with extreme emotional capacities and are identified by their indigo colored aura. It's so interesting.

Wonderful post. :)
