The Sleeping Prophet – Who was Edgar Cayce and what are Edgar Cayce Readings? Every year, tens of thousands of people from all over the world become interested in the life work of one ordinary man. He was an average individual in most respects: a loving husband, a father of two children, a skilled photographer, a devoted Sunday School teacher, and an eager gardener. Yet, throughout his life, he also displayed one of the most remarkable psychic talents of all time. His name was Edgar Cayce. soldes coque iphone For forty-three years of his adult life, Edgar Cayce demonstrated the uncanny ability to put himself into some kind of self-induced sleep state by lying down on a couch, closing his eyes, and folding his hands over his stomach. This state of relaxation and meditation enabled him to place his mind in contact with all time and space. From this state he could respond to questions as diverse as, “”What are the secrets of the universe?”” to “”How can I remove a wart?”” His responses to these questions came to be called “”readings”” and contain insights so valuable that even to this day individuals have found practical help for everything from maintaining a well-balanced diet and improving human relationships to overcoming life-threatening illnesses and experiencing a closer walk with God. coque iphone 8 Though Cayce died more than half a century ago, the timeliness of the material in the readings is evidenced by approximately one dozen biographies and more than 300 titles that discuss various aspects of this man’s life and work. These books contain a corpus of information so valuable that even Edgar Cayce himself might have hesitated to predict their impact on the latter part of the twentieth century. Sixty years ago who could have known that terms such as “”meditation,”” “”akashic records,”” “”spiritual growth,”” “”auras,”” “”soul mates,”” and “”holism”” would become household words to hundreds of thousands? Further details about his life and work are explored in such classic works as There Is a River (1942) by Thomas Sugrue, The Sleeping Prophet (1967) by Jess Stearn, Many Mansions (1950) by Gina Cerminara, and Edgar Cayce-An American Prophet (2000) by Sidney Kirkpatrick. Daily for over forty years of his adult life, Cayce would lie down on a couch with his hands folded over his stomach and allow himself to enter a self-induced sleep state. Then, provided with the name and location of an individual anywhere in the world he would speak in a normal voice and give answers to any questions about that person that he was asked. coque iphone xs max These answers, which came to be called “”readings”” were written down by a stenographer, who kept one copy on file and sent another to the person who had requested the information. Today on file at the Association for Research and Enlightenment, Inc. coque iphone (A.R.E.), in Virginia Beach, Virginia, are copies of more than 14,000 of Edgar Cayce’s readings. These are available to the public and have been filed along with any follow-up reports received from the individuals who had asked for the readings. This material represents the most massive collection of psychic information ever obtained from a single source. The organization founded by Cayce in 1931 to document, research and disseminate his information has grown from a few hundred supporters at the time of Cayce’s death in 1945 to one which is worldwide. coque iphone xs max Countless individuals have been touched by the life work of this man who was raised a simple farm boy and yet became one of the most versatile and credible psychics the world has ever known. In addition to the Cayce readings, the organization makes available a large collection of Edgar Cayce books, New Age books, Self-Help books and Metaphysical Books. Since 1901, the information in the Cayce readings has been explored by individuals from every imaginable background and discipline. In addition to individuals from all walks and stations of life, this vast scope of materials has come to the attention of educators, historians, theologians, medical professionals, and scientists. No doubt, part of the attraction has been that regardless of the field of study, Cayce has continually proven himself years ahead of his time. Decades ago, he was emphasizing the importance of diet, attitudes, emotions, exercise, and the patient’s role – physically, mentally, and spiritually – in the treatment of illness. As a result, he has been called “”the father of holistic medicine”” and has been recognized for describing the workings of the human body and foreseeing the direction of health care. In the field of psychology, he has often been compared to Carl Jung. coque iphone 8 In the realm of education, he stands with Rudlolf Steiner. Dr. Richard H. Drummond, one of the world’s most renowned theological scholars, called the Cayce information on spirituality “”the finest devotional material of the 20th century.”” In history, the Cayce readings gave insights into Judaism that were verified a decade after his death. In world affairs, he saw the collapse of communism nearly fifty years before it happened. Even in the field of physics, a professor and fellow of the American Physical Society theorized a connection between the elementary-particle theory and the way in which Edgar Cayce received his information. Repeatedly, science and history have validated concepts and ideas explored in Cayce’s psychic information. The wealth of these insights has resulted in hundreds of books that explore various aspects of this man’s life and work, not to mention foreign translations around the globe. As fascinating as the breadth of the material and its accuracy is the activity level of Cayce’s mind while he was in the reading state. It was not unusual for Edgar Cayce to be giving a reading, laying on his couch, somehow mentally in touch with another individual and his or her surroundings, activities, and relationships, providing answers to any question imaginable or any time-frame in history, and at the same time have a personal dream that Cayce could recall upon awakening. Occasionally, it was found that at the same time all this was going on, if an individual in the room with Cayce thought of something, he could respond to their query without even being asked! Even a casual perusal of the Cayce information makes it quite evident that the capacity of this man’s mind was not limited to what we might call the conventional parameters of time and space.

Website: http://eldontaylor.com “It is my philosophy that we are blessed with the ability to think. coque iphone 8 It is therefore incumbent upon all of us to do just that. To begin we must ask the first question, “Who am I?” When we truly begin this self-examination process, we typically discover that who we think we are is actually based on how our society has defined us. Indeed, one of my favorite mind questions today goes like this, “What was your last truly original thought?” When I ask this question I typically receive the same answer—silence. Why is that? The bottom line comes down to the simple fact that we have been largely programmed. Programmed to believe certain things, to think in certain ways, to behave according to acceptable standards, to obey, to conform and so forth. coque iphone 8 One of my favorite authors, Og Mandino, writing in the last century, puts it this way: One of the painful prices we are paying for our so-called modern lifestyle in more alike. soldes coque iphone We all suffer through the same television shows, read the same magazines, wear the same fashions, and buy the same new frozen foods. We all live and die by the clock, cut each other off in similar looking automobiles, pass up a night at the ballgame for a night at the office, never seem to have much time for our spouses or kids, watch helplessly as our oceans and lakes are poisoned, and try not to think of a hydrogen bomb landing anywhere near our city or town. We are all, as years pass, falling into step in order to march to the beat of the same drummer, racing forward or backward at the same pace as all others, smiling almost on command—mass-produced beings with no more individuality than any of the millions of saltine crackers that emerge daily from the ovens of Nabisco. coque iphone 8 This description has only deepened in meaning in our 24-7 information age that tends all to often to be literally the age of propaganda; indeed, perhaps more aptly stated, the age of mediocracy. coque iphone The answer to the question, “Who am I?” then takes on a different meaning when you realize the extent to which we have been programmed, and yet life itself calls upon us to accept the miracle that we are. coque iphone Life is indeed a miracle and so are you! I encourage you to become mindful and genuinely examine yourself, your ideas, your beliefs, your mind, and especially all of those self-imposed limitations that in most cases are false to fact. coque iphone I believe that inside every human being is a vast resource that typically goes untapped—left wasted through neglect for no other reason than self-doubt. I believe in you! I believe that the way we give back to the Giver of this miracle is by being all that we can be, by doing our best at everything we do and by recognizing the miracle in all life.

Other: Dream analysis — Studies have shown that the subconscious mind controls more than 90 percent of our behaviors. Dream analysis can tap into and bring awareness to some of the wisdom and messages that our subconscious mind has for us. Our dreams are filled with symbols. This dream analysis process helps unlock the meanings behind them on a very personal level. For instance, if a client comes to me with a snake in their dream, I do not tell them the Freudian version of what that snake might represent (phallic symbol/sexual drive, etc.) A snake will have varying meanings to different people. To a zookeeper or a herpetologist, a snake might represent work. To my daughter it might represent that animal that I will not let her have, and to another family-member of mine, it might be the symbol of sheer terror. But, to a client of mine whose dream we analyzed it actually represented danger and her father’s protection from it because her dad used to kill rattlesnakes on his ranch and hang them on their barbed wire fence. He also wore snakeskin boots. As you can imagine, the meaning is indeed very unique to the specific dreamer. coque iphone This work involves helping the client de-code the meanings as it pertains specifically to themselves. It is a fascinating and revealing process. I’m very efficient with this, but it can still be a time-consuming process as most dreams have several symbols at once.
An Integrative Approach to Releasing
There is no pain in your life that cannot be relieved, no incident in your life from which you were never meant to heal, no heartache so great you cannot be free of its grip, no lack that cannot be replaced by unlimited abundance and no emptiness so deep that it cannot be filled by Divine Love. This is my Purpose, this is your purpose, and this is where we meet. When you realize that your pain, your heartache, lack or emptiness is all for your liberation, you have mastered the Art of Evolution. I have made it my life’s work to assist individuals in seeing their issues in the context of their personal evolution. From this perspective they become aware of how to share their unique gifts, contributing to the evolution of humanity.
These are just a few of the areas I work with people:
- Releasing Trauma
- Releasing Obstacles and Barriers
- Couples Work

Enemy, Cripple, & Beggar: Shadows in the Hero’s Path
by Erel Shalit
“In Enemy, Cripple, & Beggar: Shadows in the Hero’s Path, Erel Shalit provides new thoughts and views on the concepts of Hero and Shadow. From a Jungian perspective, Fisher King Press publication elaborates on mythological and psychological images. Myths and fairy tales explored include Perseus and Andersen’s The Cripple. You’ll also enjoy the psychological deciphering of Biblical stories such as Amalek – The Wicked Warrior, Samson – The Impoverished Sun, and Jacob & the Divine Adversary. With the recent discovery of The Gospel of Judas, Dr. Shalit also delves into the symbolic relationship between Jesus and Judas Iscariot to illustrate the hero-function’s inevitable need of a shadow. Clinical material concerning a case of a powerful erotic counter-transference is also an integral part of this deeply insightful body of work.
The Hero is that aspect of our psyche, or in society, who dares to venture into the unknown, into the shadow of the unconscious, bringing us in touch with the darker aspects in our soul and in the world. In fact, it is the hero whom we send each night into the land of dreams to bring home the treasures of the unconscious. He, or no less she, will have to struggle with the Enemy that so often is mis-projected onto the detested Other, learn to care and attend to the Cripple who carries our crippling complexes and weaknesses, and develop respect for the shabby Beggar to whom we so often turn our backs – for it is the ‘beggar in need’ who holds the key to our inner Self.
As with Erel Shalit’s previously published book The Complex: Path of Transformation from Archetype to Ego, comprehensive views of the concepts and images of the Shadow and the Hero are provided and theory further explored. While directed toward an audience of analysts and Jungian oriented psychotherapists and clinicians, Enemy, Cripple, & Beggar: Shadows in the Hero’s Path can be comfortably read as well by an informed lay public interested in Analytical Psychology and Psychoanalysis, and by those interested in the interface between psychology and mythology, and psychology and religion.”
The Dream and Its Amplification
by Erel Shalit, Nancy Swift Furlotti
“The Dream and Its Amplification unveils the language of the psyche that speaks to us in our dreams.
We all dream at least 4-6 times each night yet remember very few. Those that rise to the surface of our conscious awareness beckon to be understood, like a letter addressed to us that arrives by post. Why would we not open it? The difficulty is in understanding what the dream symbols and images mean. Through amplification, C. G. Jung formulated a method of unveiling the deeper meaning of symbolic images. This becomes particularly important when the image does not carry a personal meaning or significance and is not part of a person’s everyday life.
Thirteen Jungian Analysts from around the world and a celebrated Jungian Scholar have contributed chapters to this book on areas of special interest to them in their work with dreams. This offers the seasoned dream worker as well as the novice great insight into the meaning of the dream and its amplification.
Contributors to this edition of the Fisher King Review include: Erel Shalit, Nancy Swift Furlotti, Thomas Singer, Michael Conforti, Ken Kimmel, Gotthilf Isler, Nancy Qualls-Corbett, Henry Abramovitch, Kathryn Madden, Ron Schenk, Naomi Ruth Lowinsky, Christian Gaillard, Monika Wikman, and Gilda Frantz.
Twelve of the fourteen distinguished contributors to this volume are IAAP (International Association for Analytical Psychology) certified Jungian analysts, one is a licensed psychoanalyst and a celebrated Jungian scholar, and one Jungian analyst was trained by and was a very close associate of Marie-Louise von Franz.
Also important to note about this distinguished lists of contributors: one is a past President of the IAAP, eight serve on the editorial boards (two of whom are editors) for prominent Jungian journals, and seven of the contributors have been presidents of accredited Jungian Societies.
Two of the contributors have served on the Philemon foundation board of directors, one as founding member and past president and was a key figure in bringing C.G. Jung’s Red Book into publication. Two of The Dream and Its Amplification contributors are also on the board of ARAS (Archives of Research in Archetypal Symbolism).”
