Edgar Cayce

Return to chapter overview

The Sleeping Prophet (1877-1945)


March 18, 1877 - January 3, 1945


All American Psychic.


When it comes to famed America psychics, Edgar Cayce tops the list. Born in 1877 and raised in a family of Kentucky farmers, the young Cayce received little formal education. As a young adult, he discovered he could enter trance states and correctly diagnose an individual's illness. As he matured, he was able to give detailed descriptions of past incarnations-which led him to adopt a belief in reincarnation. Wildly popular in his day, Cayce's readings, given while in a trance state, have been recorded and preserved. Although he died in 1945, his reputation as a genuine psychic lives on.


Every year, tens of thousands of people from all over the world become interested in the life work of one ordinary man. He was an average individual in most respects: a loving husband, a father of two children, a skilled photographer, a devoted Sunday School teacher, and an eager gardener. Yet, throughout his life, he also displayed one of the most remarkable psychic talents of all time. His name was Edgar Cayce.


For forty-three years of his adult life, 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.
