I have very recently joined the Association for Research and Enlightenment at The association, or ARE, offers a surprisingly affordable e-membership costing $10 per quarter or $30 per year.

Membership provides access to a full database of Cayce's verbatim readings (all of his transcribed readings) listed by topic and searchable by keyword or phrase. It also includes complete full color pdfs of Venture Inward magazines going back to 1998 and earlier, great articles and some fascinating videos.

There is an ongoing promotion, as well: A free 12 session video course "Discover Your Mission in Life" as presented by author Mark Thurston, Ph.D, psychologist, educator, psychologist, and author of seventeen books on personal spirituality (including several on Cayce which have been recommended to me). He is also academic affairs director for ARE's Atlantic University which is a blog entry for another time. My friend Tara and I are both doing the Discover Your Mission course.  We absolutely love it.

The ARE site is worth exploring, however, with or without the membership! It features free video, a blog, various articles and event listings, as well as entire sections on Ancient Mysteries, Holistic Health, Dreams, ESP and Cayce. The Holistic Health section includes a free searchable data base of Cayce's health readings.

But what do I think of Edgar Cayce, the seer?

I first dipped into an Edgar Cayce book in the seventies. The material seemed odd to me. Maybe it was the language or maybe it was the information about Atlantis and a mostly repressed past life connection which made me shy away. For whatever reason, the material didn't resonate and I forgot about Cayce and moved on to other topics.

Now years later, I have worked backward from religion, to Tolle, to Cayce. Imagine how surprised I was to find that is was Edgar Cayce who has inspired so much of what we now call New Age!

Does this mean that Cayce was infallible in a psychic sense?

Not necessarily. Skeptics are quick to point out that some events Cayce expected to occur prior to the year 2000 did not occur. I think it is important to note however that, on a free will planet, even the best predictions are subject to change. And a very high percentage of Cayce's predictions have proven to be surprisingly accurate.

My own interest was rekindled last month on the evening of hurricane Irene. There were 55 mile per hour winds here in inland PA. The tree came down across the street and CNN was calling for the flooding of NYC. At the height of the storm, the power went out but my laptop stayed on. This was interesting because the battery is bad and it characteristically dies as soon as the plug comes out. Or has every time it was unplugged with the exception of that afternoon.

So, there I was sitting in the semi dark with my laptop listening to the roar of the wind and wondering what it all meant. Surfing the web for answers, I happened upon the following Cayce quote on
"He warned: Watch New York, Connecticut and the like. Many portions of the east coast will be disturbed, as well as many portions of the west...Strifes will arise through the period. Watch for them near the Davis Strait between Greenland and Canada in the attempts there for the keeping of the life line to land open. Watch for them in Libya and in Egypt, in Ankara and in Syria, through the straits about those areas above Australia, in the Indian Ocean and the Persian Gulf.

By this time, he indicated, a New Cycle would begin."
The information echoed not only the national news and the situation in the middle east but what was happening only an hour or two away.  What caught me most however was not the timeliness of the prediction but the message with which it closed.  A new cycle, not Armageddon, although it seemed like it almost could have been on that stormy afternoon, but a new beginning for all of us.

And this is what I believe, as well.
