I watched a show on the History channel last night that talked all about Edgar Cayce, his life and the predictions he made for individuals and the world. I’ve been a fan of his work for quite some time, but it was the first I’d really heard about his life. He was an extraordinary man, a wonderful gift to our world. It truly amazed me to learn more about how he worked. I knew he went into a trance state to perform his readings. He would only do two readings a day because it took such a toll on him. I was a little relieved to hear that another “real” psychic had trouble with this because I have the same issue; it was part of the reason for my sabbatical. Some people have said to me that my problem is all because I don’t shield myself properly from the energies during readings, but I never felt that was correct. I know how to shield myself and do it daily. Especially during my sessions, only the highest energies are allowed in my space, and my home is heavily guarded by angelic energies. But, I do get mentally, emotionally and physically exhausted after readings – some more than others. My husband has said to me before that he can always tell how my reading went because my mood changes after each one. Even if I forget much of what happened during the session, just like Cayce, I still feel the lingering emotions and am affected by them. Well, at least I know I’m not doing anything wrong.
Another thing I found interesting is how Cayce died. I knew he died before his time, and I knew he’d been overwhelmed by his work, but I didn’t realize he was taking 7-8 readings a day at the end. He didn’t take adequate care to respect his own needs because he felt so many people needed his help at that time. While it was a generous act, it’s ultimately what killed him. He was exhausted, had a stroke and died.
I can only do 2 (sometimes 3) readings a day myself, and even that can make me sick on occasion. I’ve also noticed the nature of some readings will affect me more than others. It was really interesting to hear about Cayce having some of the same issues I’ve had. For so long, I’ve felt like there must be something wrong with me that I can’t just spit out information with no consequences, but I guess I’m not the only one after all. It was just so meaningful to me, like I needed to have this information for a reason. I only wish Cayce was alive today; it saddens me to think of all we might have missed by losing him. I don’t question Heaven’s timing, though. I’m sure there was a good reason he was called home at the time he was. He deserved the reward. I guess I’m being a little selfish, but a teacher like Cayce is hard to come by.
Have a happy Tuesday!
