|Edgar Cayce As a Young Adult
Edgar Cayce was born in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, on March, 18, 1877, where he spent his early years on a farm and learned about plants and soils. He would remain an active gardener for his entire life and Cayce also believed in herbal remedies. Cayce was the most documented psychic of the 20th Century. Cayce began to find out about his supernatural abilities as early as his childhood. Cayce displayed that he had a supernatural ability to memorize the pages of a book by falling asleep on it. Also he was able to talk to his deceased father’s spirit. Due to those interactions he was often criticized, where people labeled him as a strange person. All he wanted to do with these abilities were to help others, because he felt like his gift was from god.

Known as “The Sleeping Prophet” due to his psychic readings in a trance-like state. While in this state, Cayce would be in the universal conscious, where his mind would be in contact with all time and space. Cayce found out about this ability when he suffered laryngitis, which made him lose his voice. After a year, Cayce suddenly was cured due to him being under hypnosis. While under hypnosis, it was discovered that he could diagnose and recommend cures for others while in that state of hypnosis. He could respond to peoples’ personal questions and he would give the clients advice. There has been 14,306 of Cayce’s psychic readings documented, where he performed them in his trance-like state. The psychic readings would generally be about health, dreams, business, relationships, and spiritual growth. His final psychic reading was on himself on September 17, 1944.
Cayce made an uncanny amount of true prophecies or predictions in his lifetime. He prophesied on the Stock Market Crash of 1929, World War II, and the death of presidents. The stock market crash was predicted during a reading in 1925. Cayce stated that the client would find himself in a possession of a great deal of money. The reading advised the client to exercise caution in caring for his wealth. Also a few months before the stock market crashed, he warned a stockbroker of the impending “great disturbance in financial circles” that was about to take place. He predicted World War II in 1935, where he warned a 29-year-old client about catastrophic events building up in international communities. Cayce stated, “As to the affairs of an international nature, these we find are in a condition of great anxiety on the part of many; not only as individuals but as to nations.” Cayce would continue to show his godly abilities to the world until his death on January 3, 1945.
