However in the Cayce approach, psychic information is as natural as an 

"intuition" or a "hunch." In addition, just because something is "psychic" does 
not mean it's 100 percent accurate. We may wish to work with psychic 

information to the same degree that we would listen to the advice of a trusted 

friend: it can be utilized as an additional tool for gathering insights and for 
making decisions - it shouldn't necessarily be given any more credence than 

information from any of our other friends (or senses); however, it shouldn't be 

given any less either. In time, individuals may work with their own intuition in 
such a way that it becomes as natural as using any of their other senses: 

taste, smell, touch, hearing, or sight.


The Edgar Cayce readings tell us that dreams have been given to us for our 
benefit. Because we are spiritual beings, we have the potential to experience 

many different levels of awareness while in the dream state from which we 

may gain insights about all aspects of our life: physical, mental, and spiritual.

Dreams can help us diagnose health problems, encourage us in the decisions 

we make, or reprimand us for negative behavior in our relationships. They can 
be instructive and practical, lighthearted fun or spiritually uplifting, depending 

on what we need most at a given time. Even major life issues are addressed 

in dreams; in fact, according to Cayce, nothing of importance happens to us 
without it first having been foreshadowed in our dreams.

Although dreams often contain symbols of a universal or archetypical nature 

with similar meanings in diverse cultures, the Cayce readings stress the highly 

individual nature of dreams. It is frequently mentioned that we are our own 
best dream interpreter, even though outside feedback can certainly be 


In order to begin using our dream insights fully, we need to be consistent in 

recording our dreams each day. Keeping a dream journal is very helpful. No 

matter how little we recall of a dream, it is important to write down any 
impression that comes to mind upon awakening. Next, we can look at the 

dream from different levels: job, health, interpersonal relationships, and any 

circumstance currently being dealt with in waking life.

Once a correlation has been made to an actual situation, the dreamer may 
decide upon a course of action in order to make use of the dream insight. 

Perhaps a change in attitude is required, or maybe circumstances can be 

seen from a new perspective and the individual decides to take a different 
approach to the issue. Once the dreamer arrives at a basic understanding of 

the dream and takes some action based on that information, then a growth 

process begins which allows the dreamer to reach a deeper and clearer level 
of insight from which to proceed.
