successfully repaired his throat muscles and restored his voice. It was soon 

discovered that he could do the same for others.

For most of his adult life, Edgar Cayce was able to provide intuitive insights 

into nearly any question imaginable. When individuals came to him with a 
question, he would place himself into a sleep-induced sleep state. While in 

that state he could respond to virtually any question asked. His responses 

have come to be called "readings". Today his psychic readings constitute one 
of the largest and most impressive records of intuitive information to emanate 

from a single individual.

For many years the information dealt mainly with medical problems. 

Eventually the scope of his readings expanded to include such topics as 
meditation, dreams, reincarnation, and prophecy. The transcripts have 

provided the basis for over 300 popular books about Cayce's work.

Mr. Cayce's theories on the end times of this planet are very enlightening and 

show a global major change in 1998. He prophecized the Sphinx had been 

built in 10,500 BC and that survivors of Atlantis had concealed beneath it a 
"Hall of Records" containing all the wisdom of their lost civilization and the 

true history of the human race. Cayce prophesied that this Hall of Records 

would be rediscovered and opened between 1996 and 1998. He connected 
the opening to the second coming of Christ.

Cayce ending every reading by saying, "We are through".

The Readings

Edgar Cayce gave over 14,000 "readings" during a period of 43 years (1901 

to 1944). These are trance discourses which Cayce revealed while in a 
hypnotic or "sleeping" state. While "awake" he claimed generally not to 

remember what he had said while "asleep". The readings themselves explain 

that the unconscious mind has access to information which the conscious 
mind does not -- a common theory about hypnosis in Cayce's time. Most 

records come from the period after 1925, when his secretary Gladys Davis 

recorded the readings, and his wife Gertrude Evans Cayce "conducted" 
(guided) the readings.

The readings are customarily divided into the following categories:

Physical Readings: 9,603 extant readings.
Otherwise known as "health readings" in which (typically) a patient 

would be diagnosed and a cure prescribed. For some reason Cayce 

needed to be told the patient's physical location, though this might 
easily be in another city or state (in the case of patients inquiring by 

letter). Cayce lore describes various incidental examples of 

clairvoyance in the course of Cayce's psychically "searching" for the
