Edgar Cayce, Clairvoyant
Edgar Cayce (1877-1945) was an American, known around the
world as the Sleeping Prophet, who gave readings from
a trance state. While asleep, his soul would travel
to the location of an individual with usually serious health
problems, perform a diagnosis, and then dictate a cure to an
assistant, who would duly record the findings, which were soon
transmitted to the patient's doctor.
During one trance, Cayce's spirit began to expound upon
more esoteric subjects, such as reincarnation, Atlantis, Ancient
Egypt, dreamwork, and prophecies concerning earth changes, and
general transformation predicted to occur in the final decades
of the twentieth century.
"What is the meaning of life?" a client had asked.
"What is the real nature of man? What is the meaning of
birth and death? Why are we here?" For Cayce, upon hearing
transcripts of the answers he had given while asleep, this became
the beginning of a period of serious self-doubt.
Edgar Cayce predicted that the Great Lakes would empty
into the Gulf of Mexico in the future and that ancient repositories
would be discovered when people reached the appropriate level
of consciousness. The three repositories mentioned are Egypt,
the Bimini area, and the Yucatan.
"The earth will be broken up in the western portion
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. When
there is the first breaking up of some conditions in the South
Sea and those as apparent in the sinking or rising of that that's
almost opposite same, or in the Mediterranean, and the Etna area,
then we many know it has begun."
"If there are greater activities in Vesuvius or Pelee,
then the southern coast of California and the areas between Salt
Lake and the southern portions of Nevada, we may expect, within
the three months following same, inundation by the earthquakes.
But these are to be more in the Southern than the Northern Hemisphere."
"There will be the 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 has been those of a frigid or the
semi-tropical will become the more tropical, and moss and fern
"As to conditions in the geography of the world, of
the country -- changes here are gradually coming about. No wonder,
then, that the entity feels the need, the necessity for change
of central location. For, 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 U.S. In the next few years
land will appear in the Atlantic as well as in the Pacific. And
what is the coast line now of many a land will be the bed of
the ocean. Even many battle fields of the present will be ocean,
will be the seas, the bays, the lands over which The New World
Order will carry on their trade as one with another.
"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 lakes will empty into the Gulf, rather than the
waterway over which such discussions have been recently made.
It would be well if the waterway were prepared, but not for that
purpose for which it is at present being considered. Then the
area where the entity is now located (Virginia Beach) will be
among the safety lands, as will be portions of what is now 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."
"Strifes will arise through the period. Watch for
them near the Davis Strait in the attempts there for the keeping
of the life line to land open. Watch for them in Libya and in
Egypt, in Ankara and in Syria, through the straits about those
areas above Australia, in the Indian Ocean and the Persian Gulf."
"It is also understood, comprehended by some that
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 come about
in the political, the economic, and whole relationships to which
a leveling will occur or a greater comprehension of the need
"... for changes are coming, this may be sure -- an
evolution or revolution in the ideas of religious thought. The
basis of it for the world will eventually come out of Russia.
Not communism, no! But rather that which is the basis of the
same as the Christ taught -- his kind of communism."
On the Sphinx
"It would be well if this entity were to seek either
of the three phases of the ways and means in which those records
of the activities of individuals were preserved -- the one in
the Atlantean land, that sank, which will rise and is rising
again; another in the place of the records that leadeth from
the Sphinx to the hall of records, in the Egyptian land; and
another in the Aryan or Yucatan land, where the temple there
is overshadowing same. (2012-1; Sep 25, 1939)"
"...the entity joined with those who were active in
putting the records in forms that were partially of the old characters
of the ancient or early Egyptian, and part in the newer form
of the Atlanteans. These may be found, especially when the house
or tomb of records is opened, in a few years from now. (2537-1;
Jul 17, 1941) ...[the entity] was among the first to set the
records that are yet to be discovered or yet to be had of those
activities in the Atlantean land, and for the preservation of
data that is yet to be found from the chambers of the way between
the Sphinx and the pyramid of records. (3575-2; Jan 20, 1944)"
"Q: Give in detail what the sealed room contains.
A: A record of Atlantis from the beginning of those periods when
the Spirit took form, or began the encasements in that land;
and the developments of the peoples throughout their sojourn;
together with the record of the first destruction, and the changes
that took place in the land; with the record of the sojournings
of the peoples and their varied activities in other lands, and
a record of the meetings of all the nations or lands, for the
activities in the destruction of Atlantis; and the building of
the pyramid of initiation, together with whom, what, and where
the opening of the records would come, that are as copies from
the sunken Atlantis. For with the change, it [Atlantis] must
rise again. In position, this lies -- as the sun rises from the
waters -- as the line of the shadows (or light) falls between
the paws of the Sphinx; that was set later as the sentinel or
guard and which may not be entered from the connecting chambers
from the Sphinx's right paw until the time has been fulfilled
when the changes must be active in this sphere of man's experience.
Then [it lies] between the Sphinx and the river. (378-16; Oct
In several of his readings, Cayce stated that the survivors
of the lost continent of Atlantis had brought with them records
relating to their earliest history. These, he said, were carefully
buried in a secret chamber somewhere near to the Great Sphinx,
which stands guard like a sentinel over the Pyramids of Giza.
A second set of these records was taken, he said, by other survivors
of the disaster to be buried somewhere in the Yucatan area of
Mexico. He also said that a third set of records still resides
in the heart of Atlantis itself.
