Edgar Cayce was an American clairvoyant who answered questions on subjects as varied as healing, reincarnation, wars, Atlantis, and future events while claiming to be in a trance.

Edgar Cayce is also notable for his contributions to the notions of diet and health, particularly the issues of food combining, acid/alkaline diet, and the therapeutic use of food.

Some consider him the true founder and a principal source of the most characteristic beliefs of the New Age movement.

Edgar Cayce was born on March 18, 1877, near Beverly, south of Hopkinsville, Kentucky.

Throughout his life, Edgar Cayce was drawn to the church as a member of the Disciples of Christ.

He read the Bible once a year every year, taught at Sunday school, and recruited missionaries. He said he could see auras around people, spoke to angels, and heard voices of departed relatives.

The growing fame of  Cayce along with the popularity he received from newspapers attracted several eager commercially minded men who wanted to seek a fortune by using his clairvoyant abilities.

Even though Edgar Cayce was reluctant to help them, he was persuaded to give his readings, which left him dissatisfied with himself and unsuccessful.

Other abilities that have been attributed to Edgar Cayce include astral projection, prophesying, mediumship, and viewing the Akashic records or “Book of Life“.

Cayce said he became interested in learning more about these subjects after he was informed about the content of his readings, which he reported that he never actually heard himself.
