A devout Christian, it troubled Cayce, at first, that he was a conduit for this mysterious voice, which later became known to him as `the source'. Over time, it became clear that the voice had only good intentions as it (is claimed), diagnosed and prescribed remedies for thousands of sick and diseased people; many of whom conventional medicine of the time, had failed them. It is reported that many of these diagnoses were performed with only the patient's name and or address, with stunning degrees of accuracy, verified by medical practitioners of that time, and many of the remedies have been proven accurate in more recent years.
This man had no knowledge of biology or medicines and often asked advice from a doctor, in order to understand many of the medical terminology in the readings. Prior to him developing this gift he had been an insurance salesman and a photographer. A cynic or hardened sceptic might wonder if Cayce benefited financially from his gift. It is documented that he asked for no fees but accepted donations. A shy man, uncomfortable with being the focus of attention it appears that Edgar Cayce's sole motivation was fuelled by his passion to serve God, and his desire to help people.
Many of Edgar Cayce's predictions have come true.
He predicted the 1929 Stock Market Crash and the Great Depression.
He predicted the death of two presidents.
The rise and fall of Hitler
The Collapse of the Soviet Union
Blood as a diagnostic tool
There was a race of people called `The Essenes'
Pole shift. Yes, it's already begun if you look into it.
Okay, he got some wrong. The source' did say though (paraphrasing), that predictions of the future are changeable; the outcome depending on the actions of mankind. You can't argue with that, but you can find out more about his wrong predictions, here.
Here are more links for further investigation. I have included a link to the Sceptic's Dictionary's view of Edgar Cayce as they do their homework and are usually fair. Don't forget to research their claims though, as you would with anything. Read both sides to the story and then make your own mind up.
And of course we have to give the Edgar Cayce's A.R.E. a mention. This is the non-profit Association for Research & Enlightenment, founded in 1931 by Edgar Cayce himself. It's aims are:-
"to explore spirituality, holistic health, intuition, dream interpretation, psychic development, reincarnation, and ancient mysteries—all subjects that frequently came up in the more than 14,000 documented psychic readings given by Cayce"
Members of A.R.E. can access the entire set of 14,306 readings - including the ones in which he metioned the Sphinx and the Hall of Records.
The Hall Of Records
In which pyramid or temple are the records mentioned in the readings given through this channel on Atlantis, in April, 1932?
As given, that temple was destroyed at the time there was the last destruction in Atlantis.
Yet, as time draws nigh when changes are to come about, there may be the opening of those three places where the records are one, to those that are the initiates in the knowledge of the One God:
The temple by Iltar will then rise again. Also there will be the opening of the temple or hall of records in Egypt, and those records that were put into the heart of the Atlantean land may also be found there - that have been kept, for those that are of that group.
So what evidence is there to support these readings?
In the early 1970's, cavities were discovered by the Egyptians from Ain Shams University in Cairo and Stanford Research Institute, US, using ground-penetrating radar. Further cavities were discovered in 1977 by the SRI and funded by the US National Science Foundation.
The following website, although sceptical of Cayce's claims, presents details of all of the discoveries (several passages excavated) made in and around the Sphinx, in more recent years.
And that's unfortunately about it, so far.
Rumours and conspiracies can be found aplenty with claims of cover-ups and spin. There's also a rumour that a secret excavation is underway right now (June 2013):-
You can't blame them for being guarded with their treasures/history, but the mystery continues to tantalize us with little clues from time to time and makes us yearn for answers.
So to conclude, Edgar Cayce said that the Hall of Records beneath the Great Sphinx would be discovered before the end of the 20th century. If those cavities discovered in the 70's are in fact the Hall of Records, then you have to say, he was right.
Denham Crow 2013
There is a small village in North Lincolnshire called `Flixborough'. Although it is a beautiful and quaint little village, sadly it is more memorable for a terrible disaster in 1974, when a chemical plant called `Nypro' exploded, killing 28 people and seriously injuring 36.
Just a few years before this terrible event, my uncle, a gamekeeper on a nearby warren there, had an experience which chilled him to his very bones.
Uncle Steve (now sadly passed) was a bold and fearless man and thought nothing of tracking armed poachers in the dead of night, through the inky darkness of the fir wood.
He used to laugh at the notion of ghosts, UFOs and tales of alien encounters. But the chilling experience he would have one day, would fuel a subsequent passion for the paranormal, which would stay with him for his entire life.
It had been snowing heavily, at least for a week before this day On December 27th, 1970. The snow was a few of inches deep and the only tracks being his, rabbits, and other creatures of the wild.
He noted in his diary that there was a very slight albeit cold wind, on that day, blowing towards him.
I can picture him, head covered by a trilby hat replete with a pheasant's feather, tipped downwards and revealing only his raven black beard. Oh yes, and he had a 12 bore shotgun under his arm.
It was different in those days.
And he was a gamekeeper. It has to be said though, that if this was today, and you chanced upon him whilst on a lone walk in the woods, you would be forgiven for walking the other way. You would have been wrong to have done that though. Although he was fearless and strong, he was a man of nature with a passion for all living things. He would have given you a firendly nod as he passed you by and if you had paused to make conversation, he would have welcomed it.
After arriving at the warren, Steve checked on the pheasants and then decided it was too bitter to hang about, and so decided to make his way back home again.
It was still light.
When turning to come home, he had planned to follow the road, towards the River Trent, But about 30 yards down, he felt an inexplicable urge to turn round and go back towards Flixborough and then turn on to `Wood Bottom' at an alternative spot. He always stressed, when telling this story, that `to this day' he had no idea why he changed his mind.
Close to this location and on his route, there is a concrete rail bridge, which is still stands and is in use, to this day. He had only walked a few yards, approaching the rail bridge, when he suddenly felt very uneasy and felt the hair on the back of his neck, stand up.
What happened next is documented in his diary. I have paraphrased it here but the details are accurate.
Steve was approaching the bridge, adjacent to the Nypro chemical plant, when he was suddenly pulled backwards by his coat with such incredible force that he was thrown to the ground! Thinking it was a poacher, he jumped to his feet and spun round with his 12 bore shotgun raised, ready to scare the attacker with it. But he was very surprised, not to mention a little unnerved, to see that there was no one there! No footprints in the snow apart from his own - and there was nowhere for anyone to hide.
Steve wasn't one to mince words and suffered fools rather poorly. His temper raised at this unwarranted attack by an unseen assailant, he swore at the empty space in front on him before turning around. He quickening his pace and continued under the bridge and eventually he arrived at the first track, before turning towards the river. All the time, he felt that "something was on me; following me; watching me".
A few minutes later and he was pulled over again. Once again he swung round, cursing loudly with gun ready but of course, once again there was nothing there, just the sense of something `very powerful and terrifying'. It felt almost like it was "breathing down my neck".
Once he got back onto his feet, he picked up his pace further; although resisting the urge to break into a run for fear of showing this invisible force, how fearful he was.
He continued a little further and for the third time, it pulled him backwards, throwing him into the snow and sending his gun and hat flying into the snow.
By this time he was done with any notion of fighting and picked up his hat and gun and broke into a sprint.
Still very shaken and out of breath, he staggered to his aunt’s house in the nearby village of Burton, where he was told that he was `white as sheet', and as though he had `seen a ghost!' Steve didn't drink alcohol but his aunt made him sit down and drink a glass of brandy, in hope it would calm his nerves. I remember her telling me that she had never seen him in such a state, with his hands shaking as he held the glass.
On the anniversary of the attack, for many years, Steve went back to the spot; taking a dog once; knowing that animals are sensitive to these things, but there was nothing but the tranquility and peace of a beautiful place.
What could it have been? A poltergiest? A demon? An alien? an inter-dimensional being? Why was it so aggressive to Steve? Was it a precursor; a warning of the terrible events to come in the Nypro disaster? Was it good? Or was it evil? Plenty would have an opinion on it but without further evidence or hard science, we will never know.
Flixborough does have quite a history though. Mentioned in the Domesday book as `Flichesburg' the parish was home to the discovery of an Anglo Saxon settlement by archaelogists during the late 80's and early 90's. These ancient places are frequently mentioned in folklore and in modern day accounts of paranormal events.
For those interested in more details about the Nypro Disaster, I can recommend no better place to visit and pay respect than the The Glebe Blog. This is first-hand accounts of being amongst the horror of that terrible day.
