History - Edgar Cayce (1877 - 1945)
Edgar Cayce was called
"The Sleeping Prophet of Virginia Beach", and the New York Times once named him
"the most fascinating man in America." (S.D.Kirkpatrick.Edgar Cayce:An American
Prophet). Eventually, he became the most documented psychic of all time and the
'readings' have provided the basis for hundreds of books on the information he gave.
Even as a child, Cayce displayed powers of
perception extending beyond the normal five senses. This talent continued into his adult
life, were Cayce was able to give information about the many questions put to him. When
individuals came to him with a question, he would place himself into a hypnotic
state. His responses were called "readings". The first 100 or so of
his reading were not recorded, but Gladys Davis his lifetime secretary, faithfully
recorded the later ones . Today his psychic readings constitute one of the largest and
most impressive records of intuitive information to emanate from a single individual.
Cayce was born on March 18, 1877 on a farm
in rural Kentucky. At an early age he gave evidence of his talent. He told his parents
that he could see and talk to 'visions'. Later he mastered his school lessons by sleeping
on his books. At the age of twenty-one he developed a gradual throat paralysis which
threatened the loss of his voice. When doctors were unable to find a cause for his
condition, Cayce, encouraged by Al Layne, entered the same hypnotic state that had enabled
him to learn his school lessons years before. While in that state, he recommend medication
and manipulative therapy, which successfully repaired his throat muscles and restored his
voice. It was soon discovered that he could do the same for others.
For many years the information given was
for medical problems. Eventually the scope of his readings expanded to include such topics
as meditation, spirituality, dreams, ESP and intuition, reincarnation, ancient
civilizations and prophecy and much more. This vast body of information is now
available, in it's entirety, on CD-ROM.
The A.R.E.®, Association for Research and
Enlightenment, located in Virginia Beach, Virginia is the national headquarters of
the Cayce material. It was founded in 1931 and houses over 14,000
readings given between 1901 and 1945. For the complete set of all Cayce readings the
CD may be purchased from the A.R.E. Press.
