This book is about a psychic and his work in suggesting methods by which healing might 

come to the human body. These suggestions centered on the field of medicine and spread out 

over osteopathy, chiropractic, physical therapy, herbal therapy, nutrition, spiritual therapy, hyp- 

notherapy, dentistry, and what is best described as "other methods." As a waking individual, 

Edgar Cayce often looked into the future in flashes of insight or, at times, viewed a person's 

makeup from the appearance of his aura and commented on it, apparently seeing events in the 

past and in the future which dealt with that person's total life as an individual. His psychic ability 

was indeed unique while he was in the full waking state.

Asleep, however, Cayce apparently found the curtains pulled widely apart which for most of 

us usually obscure the past, the future, and the true nature of man as seen in the skein of time 

and space. He found himself giving information that, in his own unconscious state, he termed 

arising from universal sources. He described events of the future with almost as great a clarity as 

he discussed the physiological functioning of an ailing human body that might be 2,000 miles 

away. In this state he apparently had communication with the unconscious minds of people 

everywhere but specifically with the mind of that person for whom he was giving a reading. Much 

has been written about this in numerous publications, and he has been adjudged the outstanding 

sensitive of the twentieth-century.

All of this activity at the unconscious level still allowed him to dream and, upon awakening 

from a reading he was able to describe the dream experience. Even the dream, Cayce suggests, 

is a psychic experience which often participates in the past and the future and predicts for those 

who would study their dreams every important event destined to happen in their lives. Many 

important personal as well as world prophecies came to Cayce in dreams, both during the course 

of a reading and at the more normal dream times-at night while he slept.

At times during a reading, he would correct the shorthand notes made by his secretary who 

was sitting across the room and who had made an error in transcription of a word or a phrase. His 

mind, indeed, had many facets. and he has, after his death, become an object of study by 

interested researchers from many fields of scientific endeavor.

His discussion of an individual's travel through time led to the interweaving through all of 

the Cayce material of that theory which is called reincarnation, or the continuity of a soul's 

existence through all time.

His work with illnesses of the human body has provided for me the most fascinating and 

potentially important information that I have found in the 14,500 readings he gave over a period of 

some 40 years. Some 9,000 of these readings dealt with human illness and its correction.
