It is interesting the reaction one gets when the term psychic or intuitive is used to describe an experience. Often there is a little smile and chuckle to laugh it off, perhaps an eye roll as to the plausibility, but not quite outright denial of the experience. In general there is an attitude of keeping the occurrence of a psychic or intuitive experience at arm’s length. That may be the conscious response but at a private or subconscious level the response appears to be the reverse, that the experience happened and is quite real, and at the same time , for many, it is an uncomfortable acknowledgement of this reality of psychic/intuitive phenomenon.
This approach – avoidance response to the intuitive experience seems to be ingrained in our society. Many try to make light of it; like whistling as they walk past a cemetery. Yet at the same time we acknowledge the existence of these abilities in our daily lives; using regularly terms like “woman’s intuition or for men a “gut instinct”, avoided is the term psychic, though the same experience is being described. A classic example of this approach/avoidance in our society is exampled in the TV series NCIS. A weekly TV show that has been on for 18 years and for the last 13 years has been in the top 5 in TV shows, showing just how popular this show has been for so long, resonating with the audiences.
In brief NCIS is an American action police television series, based around a team of special agents from the Naval Criminal Investigative Service led by a hardnosed no-nonsense special agent Jethro Leroy Gibbs. Gibbs and his team of agents investigate and solve crimes with their skills and all the available high technology and forensic sciences the U.S. military has.
On the surface it doesn’t sound very much a platform for psychic or intuitive experiences does it? That it is all criminal investigation and forensics (CSI) science whodunits. This is where Gibbs, the lead special agent comes in, with all the sciences, no matter what; it comes down to trusting “Gibb’s gut”! This is even described as part of his character. “One of Gibbs' most noted traits is his gut instinct. Tony explained to Ziva that "the Boss moves in mysterious ways" when she challenged Gibbs' judgment in "Honor Code" (later in the episode Gibbs is proven right). “ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leroy_Jethro_Gibbs
I think this all shows that psychic/intuitive experiences are recognized and accepted by society but the majority is still very uncomfortable with its existence, perhaps because of the implications and responsibilities such realty brings with it. So, rather than facing that responsibility without fully denying it we respond in such a split fashion. Aldous Huxley addressed this challenge:
“In the Western world visionaries and mystics are a good deal less common then they used to be. …In the currently fashionable picture of the universe there is no place for valid transcendental experience. Consequently those who have had what they regard as valid transcendental experiences are look upon with suspicion, as being either lunatics or swindlers. To be a mystic or a visionary is no longer creditable. “The Doors of Perception by Aldous Huxley p.73
This brings us to the Edgar Cayce and his readings, one of those rare “Western world visionaries”. What follows are 6 new examples of validated predictions from his readings strengthening even more the creditability of his experience.
If anyone searches the name Edgar Cayce on the internet what will initially be found was that he was one most incredible psychic/intuitive’s of his time and the most documented psychic of the 20th century, if not any century. Along with this will be found his seven prophecies that came true and which have been featured on the History channel. If one looks further they will find a treasure trove of material from his psychic readings on holistic health, dream interpretation, meditation, ancient mysteries, reincarnation, and a beautiful, cognizant spiritual philosophy.
What one will not see are the tens of thousands of pages of psychic readings that are still bearing fruit and further confirming the incredible abilities he shared to help others. What follows are four examples of his psychic depth and prescience.
1) Important Maya city named by Cayce 52 years before its discovery!
In May of 1943 Edgar Cayce gave a life reading for woman seeking to better understand her role in the universe. In his trance state Edgar Cayce reviewed some of her past lives that would be of assistance to her in the present life’s journey. This was always a core tenet of the life readings for such seekers. These readings were not for entertainment, they were for growth of the individual. This is clearly stated in the reading:
“In giving the interpretations of the records as we find them for this entity, these we choose from same with the desire and purpose that this information may be a helpful experience; enabling the entity to better fulfill those purposes for which the entity entered this present sojourn.” (3004-1)
Her past life in Yucatan, described in her Cayce reading, mentioned an ancient Maya city that he called Ichakabal.
“Before that the entity was in the Yucatan land, when there were those activities in which there were those groups that had caused dissension among the worshipers in the temple there of Ichakabal. In those activities we find whole groups of individuals being separated, and seeking for activities in other groups.
“The entity maintained that the activities there, in Ichakabal, were to be kept.” (Reading 3004-1) May 1943.
Now, more than 50 years later, the Maya city named by Edgar Cayce in his psychic state, is discovered! This is not a minor discovery; the researchers describe this site as a very important Maya site with a pyramid temple that absolutely dwarfs the Kukulcan pyramid at Chichen Itza.
“The archaeological site in question, located 40 kilometers west of the city of Bacalar, was discovered in 1995 and everything indicates that this is a political and religious center of great importance in the Maya world, with a backbone of more than 40 meters high and 200 meters base, surpassing even the famous Chichen Itza pyramid.”
One of the aspects that really caught my attention was how this Mayan site discovered by the archeologists was given its name.
“Origins of name
The site is located west of the Bacalar Lagoon, surrounded by a lot of smaller and very close to the archaeological site of prehistoric settlements Dzibanché. The name was assigned Ichkabal only in March 1995, when the first archaeologists came to the place accompanied by local guides; the name means ’between low’,"… intended to highlight the physiographic features of the site environment.”
These quoted articles are from Mexico’s nation[al?] institute of Archeology and History. It should be noted that the readings spell this Maya city Ichakabal, while the archeologists spell it Ichkabal. I would suggest since the readings were written down as Edgar Cayce spoke, that the slight difference is merely a phonetic variance.
The Cayce readings not only cited a past life in the Maya city of Ichkabal, the readings named it years before its future discovery.
2) The Cayce readings correctly predict ancient civilization findings Again!
Archeologist discover magnetic Mesoamerican stone sculptures
Magnetized stone “turtle head”
Vincent H. Malmström: https://www.dartmouth.edu/~izapa/CS-MM-Chap.%203.htm
1. HLC: You will give an historical treatise on the origin and development of the Mayan civilization, answering questions.
2. EC: Yes. In giving a record of the civilization in this particular portion of the world, it should be remembered that more than one has been and will be found as research progresses.
13. Hence each would ask, what specific thing is there that we may designate as being a portion of the varied civilizations that formed the earlier civilization of this particular land?
14. The stones that are circular, that were of the magnetized influence upon which the Spirit of the One spoke to those peoples as they gathered in their service… (TEXT OF READING 5750-1 circa 1933.)
Originally discovered by Dartmouth researchers in the 1970’s (V. Malmstrom) and further evaluated in 1997, there has been renewed interest in the discovered stone carvings with magnetic properties. Recent studies (Harvard 2019) have confirmed that statues in the Guatemala area were purposely carved to focus their magnetic aspects in specific areas, usually the navel, forehead or right cheek. Also a large “turtle head table like sculpture with a northern polarity aligned at its snout and a southern polarity aligned at the back of it head. The archeologist debate the meanings for this but agree the sculptors recognized the magnetism found in stone (possibly caused by lightning strikes) but also naturally occurring magnetism in stone. The key point, relating to the Cayce readings, is that these sculptors and their culture had discovered away to recognize and identify this magnetism and shape their sculptures accordingly.
Vincent H. Malmström: Unearthed at nearby Monte Alto https://www.dartmouth.edu/~izapa/CS-MM-Chap.%203.htm
The Edgar Cayce readings predate these University discoveries by over 40 years.
The Cayce reading on the magnetized stones contains even greater accuracy confirmed by the academic researchers. The recent archeological findings further state that these magnetized stone carvings date to Olmec and Pre-Olmec societies, earlier societies that are considered ancestral to the Maya society. The Cayce reading was focusing on the Maya culture yet stated: “Hence each would ask, what specific thing is there that we may designate as being a portion of the varied civilizations that formed the earlier civilization of this particular land?’’
Additionally, the Cayce reading relate that the magnetism designed in the stones related to their spiritual belief, this possibility, though debated, is also put for by the academic research.
“If the sculpture depicts a head, it is often magnetic in the right temple. If it depicts a body, its magnetic pole is usually near the navel…
Clearly, something in the early Soconuscan culture seems to have dictated a linkage between the right temple and magnetism and between the navel and magnetism. What was it?
Naturally, one might conjecture that the connection being implied between magnetism and the head was the symbolization of a mental or spiritual link --... Similarly, the association between magnetism and the navel may well have been a commemoration of the physical side of life -- the continuity of the life-force from mother to child, despite the cutting of the umbilical cord at birth.” Cycles of the Sun, Mysteries of the Moon: The Calendar in Mesoamerican Civilization by Vincent H. Malmström: University of Texas Press; 1st edition (October 1, 1996) Chapter 3; Strange Attraction: The Mystery of Magnetism
This ability to identify and recognize magnetic properties in stones and shape them for their own purposes in Mesoamerica and the Guatemala area was unknown to academia until the 1970’s, yet the Cayce readings over 40 years earlier clearly cited this ability of the ancient Mesoamericans and their purposes for doing so We are provided with incredible and further hard data evidence and validation of the accuracy of the Cayce readings in many arenas.
3) Dirt has a microbiome, and it may double as an antidepressant By Zoë Schlanger. May 30, 2017
The Cayce Readings find validation once more!
TEXT OF READING 5125-1 F 30 (Secretary, Baptist). This Psychic Reading given by Edgar Cayce, this 19th day of May, 1944
R E A D I N G: Born in Bokhoma, Oklahoma.
2. EC: A new vibration! Very good. Quite an interesting fact about people born here [Bokhoma, Okla.?]. One out of ten thousand would ever commit suicide. Something in the soil; get it between your toes and you'll never commit suicide.
73 years ago Edgar Cayce went into his meditative trance state to give a psychic reading requested by a 30 year old woman. Though the majority of readings Cayce gave were medical related, what would be called a medical intuitive reading today, in this case, the reading was consider a “life reading”. A life reading generally provided only past lives experiences with their gains and losses that would assist the person in the present life along with observations on the persons present life. On occasion during the reading sometimes other observations, like an aside, would be made.
This reading was one of those cases that provided additional information. The reading has sat in the archives for over seven decades with that curious statement that “something in the soil” helps prevent suicide. Though there are many causes for suicide, major causes are considered from mental health issues such as stress, depression, anxiety, and PTSD. Until recently this has enigmatic statement has lain fallow.
In the 1940’s the idea that something in the soil could help prevent suicide or stress is not something that medical science would have been seriously considered, or the source of such an idea, to state kindly. . Yet, here, over seventy years later is the scientific evidence that the reading was correct.
Now science is once more providing validating evidence for the material contained in the Cayce readings. Recent investigations confirmed by multiple medical researchers have found certain soil based bacterium reduce stress and anxiety.
“A new study just revealed a big one concealed by bacteria living in the dirt beneath us, and it could move us closer to the development of the long-theorized “stress vaccine."
The researchers injected the rodents with M. vaccae prior to exposing them to a stressful event, and the shots both prevented a “PTSD-like syndrome” in the short-term and diminished stress reactions later on.”
By David DiSalvo :Senior Contributor. https://www.forbes.com/sites/daviddisalvo/2019/05/30/science-just-moved-a-step-closer-to-making-a-stress-vaccine-from-bacteria-living-under-our-feet/#269cd6753a43
In another article on this recent research it states:
…the bacteria injection “significantly improved patient quality of life,” O’Brien wrote in the paper detailing the findings. Her patients were happier, expressed more vitality, and better cognitive functioning—
Researchers have already found clear evidence that childhood exposure to outdoor microbes is linked to a more robust immune system; for example, Bavarian farm children who spent time in family animal stables and drank farm milk had drastically lower rates of asthma and allergies throughout their lives than their neighbors who did not.
Dirt has a microbiome, and it may double as an antidepressant by Zoë Schlanger, May 30, 2017.
The Cayce readings time and time again continued to be validated in multiple different categories. It’s time to pause and ponder such validations for the greater ramifications on the overall contents of the Readings. It could be world changing.
4) All Matter/materiality originates from vibrations
The readings continue with their remarkable explanations as to how such things as the universe and matter were created. At the time of these readings quantum physics was in its infancy and in the midst of a scientific debate and struggle with Newtonian physics on the makeup of the universe. Yet the Cayce readings in 1929 had already put forth an answer.
“(Q) [Is this statement correct?]… everything is vibratory …–
“(A) Absolutely correct! “(Reading 195-54)
For, as has been in the experience, and as is partially understood by the entity, everything in motion, everything that has taken on materiality as to become expressive in any kingdom in the material world, is BY the VIBRATIONS that are the motions - or those positive and negative influences that make for that differentiation that man has called matter in its various stages of evolution into material things. For it enters and it passes through. For - as is the better understood, and as will be proclaimed (and the entity may be able to aid in same) - all vibration must eventually, as it materializes into matter, pass through a stage of evolution and out. (699-1) (1934)
While true all force in nature, all matter, is a form of vibration - and the vibratory force determines as to what its nature IS - that given by the cell itself, from which it produced - as is seen in all matter in the earth's plane. (900-448) (1929)
Recently scientists have come to the same conclusion on how the universe came into being.
“The cosmic microwave background is remarkably uniform over the entire sky, but tiny variations reveal the imprints of sound waves triggered by quantum fluctuations in the universe just moments after it was born. These imprints, appearing as splotches in the Planck map, are the seeds from which matter grew, forming stars and galaxies. Production editor: Dr. Tony Phillips | Credit: Science@NASA
Another article from the scientific community also confirms, albeit more poetically written:
“The early universe rang with the sound of countless cosmic bells, which filled the primordial darkness with ripples like the surface of a pond pounded by stones. The wave fronts later served as spawning grounds for galaxies, astronomers announced Tuesday.”
To be clear of Cayce’s amazing prediction the definition of sound is vibration.
Definition of sound: Noun; Vibrations that travel through the air or another medium…Sound produced by continuous and regular vibrations…
Now, 85 years after the Cayce reading, science confirms the Cayce readings. Vibrations--sound--is how all matter in our universe originated.
5) Great Pyramid construction occurred circa 10,500 BC per the Cayce readings
Below are excerpts from the Cayce readings about the Great Pyramid’s construction and its relationship to the position and alignments to the stars integrated into its construction.
“ (Q) What was the date of the actual beginning and ending of the construction of the Great Pyramid?
“(A) Was one hundred years in construction. Begun and completed in the period of Araaraart's time, with Hermes and Ra.
” (Q) What was the date B.C. of that period?
“(A) 10,490 to 10,390 before the Prince entered into Egypt. (5748-6)
“This building, as we find, lasted for a period of what is termed now as one hundred years. It was formed according to that which had been worked out by Ra Ta in the mount as related to the position of the various stars, that acted in the place about which this particular solar system circles in its activity… (294-151) [reading given in 1932]
” Then, there were the mathematical, the astrological and the numerological indications, as well as the individual urge.” (281-42) [reading given in 1939]
There is mounting evidence validating the Cayce readings concerning the construction dates cited above and the incorporation into its construction of the astronomical position of the stars in the sky at that time. Noted below are some examples.
The Message of the Sphinx: A Quest for the Hidden Legacy of Mankind, by Graham Hancock and Robert Bauval, in 1996 presents evidence that the creation of the Sphinx and Pyramids occurred as far back as 10,500 BC using astronomical data:
A) ...we have demonstrated with a substantial body of evidence that the pattern of stars that is "frozen" on the ground at Giza in the form of the three pyramids and the Sphinx represents the disposition of the constellations of Orion and Leo as they looked at the moment of sunrise on the spring equinox during the astronomical "Age of Leo" (i.e., the epoch in which the Sun was "housed" by Leo on the spring equinox.) Like all precessional ages this was a 2,160-year period. It is generally calculated to have fallen between the Gregorian calendar dates of 10,970 and 8810 BC.
B) The Orion correlation theory (or Giza–Orion correlation theory) is a hypothesis in alternative Egyptology. Its central claim is that there is a correlation between the location of the three largest pyramids of the Giza pyramid complex and Orion's Belt of the constellation Orion, and that this correlation was intended as such by the builders of the pyramids. The stars of Orion were associated with Osiris, the god of rebirth and afterlife, by the ancient Egyptians… The basis of this theory concerns the proposition that the relative positions of three main Ancient Egyptian pyramids on the Giza plateau were by design correlated with the relative positions of the three stars in the constellation of Orion which make up Orion's Belt— as these stars appeared in 10,000 BC.
C) Dr. Robert Schoch (Geologist and Geophysicist) has put forth evidence that the Great Sphinx of Giza is much older than conventionally thought In 1991: Dr. Schoch dated the famous monument to between 10,000 and 5000 BC, based on his argument that its erosion was due mainly to the effects of water, rather than wind and sand, and also based on findings from seismic studies around the base of the Sphinx .
D) Donald B. Carroll, author and independent researcher, presents further astronomical data beyond Orion and Leo, and the Sphinx, which includes the astronomical Summer triangle and the Great Southern Triangle at 10,500 BC with evidence of their significance for ancient Egyptian culture and philosophy. Mr. Carroll further demonstrates that the actual mathematical, astrological, and numerological indications cited in the Cayce readings are present as well.
More and more evidence, as shown above, is mounting for the much earlier construction of the Great Pyramid toward the Cayce readings’ timeline. As for the general argument that megalithic stone structures’ constructions were not possible by the populations of that earlier time has been refuted by the discovery of Gobekli Tepe in Turkey. In Gobekli Tepe, four megalithic stone structures, similar to England’s Stonehenge, are being uncovered and have been scientifically dated to 9500 BC! Also evidence has been found of more than a dozen similar structures still buried that may be an additional 3,000 years older (circa 12,500 BC) !
6) A Cayce reading cites an Egyptian unit of measurement (unique) for ancient Egyptian temples and pyramids.
In what almost appeared as an aside while giving a reading, Edgar Cayce offered a specific unit of measurement that was noted as being used in their structures.
“Here it may be well that there be given a concept of what is meant by the journey, or what journey is meant. As indicated, it, the globe within the pyramid without, was four forty and four cubits (twenty-seven and one-half inches was a cubit then, or a mir [?] then). [GD's note: The pronunciation was MYRRH.] The height was four and twenty and forty and four mir [?], making then that in the form of the ova, or the egg in its ovate form. From station to station in the seven phases or seals or stands or places of the activities, they were such as to make each station lead from one to another by ever crossing the one; making the continued web.” (281-25)
This Cayce Reading became the key to unlocking an incredible archeological discovery. It is an ancient discovery, but one that is linked to the present.
Introducing an incredible and elegant link from the past—a global link as integral to our journey today as it was thousands of years ago! This is a link through an ancient unit of measurement, used at sacred sites to unify within ourselves Heaven and Earth, along with time and space. And it is a symbolic message of meaning and hope that has been left for all of us. This archeological discovery and journey is so compelling, so powerful, so important and far reaching that it became a book. The Spirit of Light Cubit: the measure of Humanity and Spirit.
The Spirit of Light Cubit takes us on a journey that reunifies Science and Spirit in humanity’s search for purpose and our ultimate destination in life and the Cosmos. Included in this eloquent yet concise guide is ample evidence that ancient cultures communicated this unifying message across at least three continents thousands of years before it has been considered possible from a “lost civilization.”
The indication for this shared ancient message is found in a unit of measurement demonstrated to be used in the construction of ancient cultures’ sacred sites from Egypt to Central America, the Southwest U.S. back across to Europe and on to Asia. . It is also shown to function as a well-designed measure of time in its role for a pendulum. The importance of a shared measurement is well stated by the Father of Modern Egyptology, Sir Flinders Petrie: “…Thus the possession of the same unit of measurement by different people implies either that it belonged to their common ancestors or else that a very powerful commercial intercourse has existed between them.”
As ancient measurements were derived from human body proportions, evidence points to this unit of length being based on the human spine—a measurement that, like the purpose of these sacred sites, represented the journey toward higher consciousness and a unified Heaven and Earth, time and space. It’s a message of purpose and meaning that is as important today as it was then. This measure is identified in ancient Egyptian texts as the “Aakhu Meh,” the spirit of light cubit, and was communicated to multiple cultures from an ancient lost civilization.
Offered is firm compelling evidence of this lost culture which also provides corroboration for one of the prime purposes of this lost civilization; to raise the consciousness of humankind.
The evidence is a unit of measurement that is shared across continents and an ocean thousands upon thousands of years ago. It is the only book that has discovered and correlated this unit of measurement archeologically to an ancient global lost civilization. This measure is an ultimate symbol of humankind’s journey of evolvement in ancient societal technology and higher consciousness.
Even as I first came across a mention of a 27.5-inch measurement used in temples and pyramids in ancient Egypt, I thought it was curious in its mystery and worthy of exploring, but I had no idea that what I thought was an interesting side path on my journey would end up being the road that not only answered my questions about this unit of measurement but brought answers and clarity to many of my questions of life.
All this archeological evidence of an ancient lost civilization, its global reach and how its spiritual design is shared around the world blossoming from the powerful seed of that Cayce reading 85 years ago and becoming an encompassing world tree. This is a reading that speaks of this ancient time, the temples, the global reach and spiritual purpose. The ramifications of the evidence and this civilization spiritual purpose it awe inspiring and still important today.
The Cayce readings are showing themselves to be on target, again.
Whether it is the makeup of the universe, a past Mayan life and a future Maya city discovered, or the time, construction, and unit of measurement for the Great Pyramid, the Cayce readings continue to find validation in their information. The anticipation of more such validations is what makes the readings so exciting. What will be discovered next?
