The World’s Most Mysterious Man

Edgar Cayce

The World’s Most Mysterious Man

 

Edgar 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. Cayce 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” (AngelicView: Click that link ← to go to the New York Times article on Cayce from 1910). A national magazine ran an article titled, “Miracle Man of Virginia Beach” (AngelicView: Click link for magazine article), 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. Cayce was able to gain a tremendous amount of information through his frequent NDEs. Much of this information solved some of the greatest mysteries of humanity. The following web pages contain Cayce’s answers to some of these mysteries.

Edgar Cayce had more near-death experiences than anyone ever documented. Using hypnosis to induce a near-death experience, Cayce made over 14,000 journeys into the spirit realm and was able to access virtually unlimited information by visiting the so-called Hall of Records described by a large number of near-death experiences. Cayce revealed that his subconscious mind (which he identified as the “soul”) would leave his body and explore the dimension where all subconscious minds are connected – a dimension similar in description to Carl Jung’s Collective Unconsciousness. It is the realm of thought, imagination, dreams, after-death, and near-death states where all things are possible.

Edgar Cayce went on record three separate times to describe his out-of-body journeys to people. Here they are:

A Verbatim Account
of Cayce’s Afterlife Journeys
The following is the only waking description of his journey in the trance state, taken verbatim from comments he made at a public lecture:“I see myself as a tiny dot out of my physical body, which lies inert before me.” [out-of-body] [orbs]

“I find myself oppressed by darkness and there is a feeling of terrific loneliness.” [the void]

“Suddenly, I am conscious of a white beam of light, knowing that I must follow it or be lost.” [the light]

“As I move along this path of light I gradually become conscious of various levels upon which there is movement.” [the tunnel]  [various afterlife realms]

“Upon the first levels there are vague, horrible shapes, grotesque forms such as one sees in nightmares.” [hell realm] (Not yet discussed here on AngelicView, but they do exist).

“Passing on, there begins to appear on either side misshapen forms of human beings with some part of the body magnified.” [another hell realm]

“Again there is change and I become conscious of gray-hooded forms moving downward. Gradually, these become lighter in color.” [heavenly realm]  [guides]

“Then the direction changes and these forms move upward and the color of the robes grows rapidly lighter.” [higher heavenly realms]

“Next, there begins to appear on either side vague outlines of houses, walls, trees, etc., but everything is motionless.” 

“As I pass on, there is more light and movement in what appear to be normal cities and towns. With the growth of movement I become conscious of sounds, at first indistinct rumblings, then music, laughter, and singing of birds. There is more and more light, the colors become very beautiful, and there is the sound of wonderful music. The houses are left behind; ahead there is only a blending of sound and color.” [cities of light]  [heavenly music]

“Quite suddenly I come upon a Hall of Records. It is a hall without walls, without ceiling, but I am conscious of seeing an old man who hands me a large book, a record of the individual for whom I seek information.” [a good description of the Temple of Knowledge that people refer to in other NDEs]

Kevin Williams Analyzes
the NDEs of Edgar Cayce

Edgar Cayce did not experience clinical or brain death, but he was able to control his mind to travel consciously through the identical process of the near-death state. This can be done by anyone, according to Cayce, if the proper attunement is made. Cayce also mentions that this is done by everyone when they fall asleep and enter the realm of dreams, only it is done subconsciously not consciously. The same is true for death.

Cayce’s experience reveals more aspects about the nature of the tunnel so often described in near-death experiences and more about the structure of the afterlife. One of the afterlife levels that Cayce observed while in the tunnel appears to be like our own except it is motionless. In my opinion, this motionless afterlife level is our physical universe. While Cayce journeys through the tunnel and the eternal now, time on Earth stands still. This principle can even be found in Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity.

The afterlife level that Cayce saw where human beings appear with some body part magnified has been described in the Tibetan Book of the Dead and other religious traditions as being hell. It is a place where a particular desire has been overemphasized while in physical life. The level where hooded monk-like beings appear has also been described by many other near-death experiencers such as Dr. George Ritchie and Betty Eadie. Cayce was able to describe very accurately some of the various levels of the afterlife that appear in near-death accounts.
