Edgar CayceEdgar Cayce (pronounced Kay-see) was a man who, over the span of his lifetime (1877-1945), had more near-death experiences than anyone ever documented. In this documentary film we see Cayce who learned that when he was hypnotized, he could leave his body and journey into the afterlife realms. Cayce made over 14,000 otherworldly journeys in his life and the information he gained from these journeys has astounded people all over the world. In 1910, the New York Times carried two pages of headlines and pictures in which he was declared the World's Most Mysterious Man A national magazine ran an article titled, Miracle Man of Virginia Beach, and Cayce was swamped with an avalanche of 25,000 requests for medical help.

President Woodrow Wilson sought the services of Edgar Cayce for healing and guidance while he was President and conceiving the idea of the League of Nations. In 1954, the University of Chicago accepted a Ph.D. thesis based on a study of his life and work. Cayce is also considered to be the father of holistic medicine by JAMA, the prestigious medical journal. Cayce was a wonder to the medical community because of his ability to diagnose and specify a treatment for gravely ill people often hundreds of miles away through his out-of-body journeys.

I don't think that anything and any field of healing can surpass the instructions that Cayce gave because he didn't give them to cure symptoms, he gave them to cure the basis of the illness. The basic concepts of the Cayce readings it that the basis of health is spiritual, mental, and physical.

I used to live in Portsmouth Virginia and I went to ARE years ago in Virginia Beach to help me control and turn on and off my feelings on seeing and knowing things before it happens. It drives me crazy to have this and its hard to control it. So they showed me how too. They have wonderful books and auto books for people to read. and meetings too. If you need the help, do not hesitate to ask them.

There is not one mention of Cayce's use of castor oil packs to treat many, many maladies. That is a shame.....

Cayce was not just "simple farmer boy". His relatives were high level Masons.

This is the largest propaganda film!"

That's why I enjoy watching these kind films: I like to wonder WHY they want me to believe.

Ask yourself: Do you trust this narrator?

"I don’t think that anything and any field of healing can surpass the instructions that Cayce gave because he didn’t give them to cure symptoms, he gave them to cure the basis of the illness. "

Erm... what about accupuncture and numerous other holistic apporaches?

Hope I don't offend anyone, I try to keep an open mind but its hard to believe anything outside the spectrum of light to which my eyes have grown accustomed. Its easy to say, of the 8000 that sought Cayce's help, the ones who followed his advice recovered. Oh they didn't get better? Must not have done what I said. He also predicted times of great turmoil in America yet his family still reside there. Yes! We can see with instruments that an increased flow of oxygenated blood reaches the hippocampus when meditating, but we can also run an electromagnetic current through the perietal lobes and have a sensation of meeting god. He was a christian but the bible says that this sort of spiritualism is satans work. Lastly, he died at 68 of what I don't know but my father is 68, he's smoked 60 a day since he was 20 he's also largely over weight but fit as an ox.... an over weight ox with a cigarette hanging from his mouth, but still. If I put my hands behind my back and place a coin in one hand and draw out my arms, open my hands to reveal the coin in my right hand, close them and say the coin is in my left hand... Do you go with what you saw or faith in what was told.

Mr. Cayce is amazing and way ahead of his time. He is correct in saying that we could do the same thing if we practiced. You also have to believe. I plan to study more on this, but I can verify that time is existant..past -present - and future,. all at the same time..one can travel in their dreams to various stages in their life..they can't change them in their dreams, but they can see themselves..the future is optional..if you see something bad you can change your lifestyle and avoid the consequences..or take another road. Practice makes perfect..

Love Edgar Cayce and the wisdom brought forth from his divine service.

Just picked up several books on him. Will be reading over these holidays.

What sucks is that you can't download or view all his readings unless you join/pay A.R.E.
I have nothing against A.R.E., but I'm sure Edgar Cayce would've liked to have them available to the people for free.
I would join A.R.E. just to view these documents, but I'm broke. Does anyone know where to view his readings?

Edgar Cayce was far ahead of his time in that he understood illness from a holistic perspective of mind, body and spirit. I believe that the more loving and non-judgemental we become the more the divine can manifest within is.
