May 2015 Update
From the Desk of Kevin J. Todeschi


 

This is my update for May 2015 to A.R.E. members and friends who are interested in the new and exciting trends occurring within Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E. and Atlantic University. A number of exciting things are happening this month! Please share the following with your friends: 

CREATE CAMPAIGN

Create CapstoneThis is the “Capstone Year” of our $30 million CREATE Campaign (capital, endowment, and program support)… and, thanks to some recent donations for our renovation project and upgraded technology (focused on world outreach), we have raised almost $28 million – just $2 million to go! $1 million of that is needed to renovate our Library and Conference Center (new restrooms, HVAC system, Library carpeting, expanding the auditorium, parking improvements, and upgrades throughout the building). Donors of $500 or more to the project will be listed on our Stairway to Heaven.

A.R.E. Camp is also raising funds to build a new shower house; our Prison Outreach program is expanding into prison libraries; and you are still supporting our various programs and our day-to-day operations through your Annual Fund donations as well. Thank you!

Golden Circle donors and Edgar Cayce Legacy Society members: Mark your calendars! Join us for our annual Donor Appreciation event the evening of Friday, June 26 at Virginia’s Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA). Details and invitations will be forthcoming. 


TWO BOARD MEMBERS LEAD THE WAY TO STRENGTHEN STUDY GROUPS, HONOR DORIS VAN AUKEN

Don Carroll Palestine Retreat 2015Lora Little on-demandBoard members Don Carroll and Lora Little (along with her husband Greg) have made it their priority to support the A.R.E.’s A Search for God Study Groups. Combined, they have pledged $75,000 to create funding for a new, part-time staff person to focus on nurturing Study Groups and they have created endowment funds which will support Study Groups for generations to come. The endowments will generate about $2,500 annually and – if you will add your donation to them – they could do even more. One fund is named in memory of Doris Van Auken whose decades-long dedication was inspirational to many. YOU are invited to contribute to “The Doris Van Auken Fund” in any amount if you wish to honor this wonderful woman’s memory. Thank you for your leadership and contributions, Don, Greg, and Lora!

The Little Prophetess
from the Cayce Readings
By Sidney and Nancy Kirkpatrick



"[Archangel] Michael's message was given with such force that I could hear the windows rattling in their frames in our home. I could even hear the cups rattling in the dish drainer in the kitchen. The vibrations nearly knocked us all out of our chairs."
– Hugh Lynn Cayce describing the appearance of Archangel Michael in one of his father's readings.

On rare occasions during an Edgar Cayce reading, an angel would speak through Cayce to impart an important message or warning. Such was the case during a reading for four-year-old Faith Hope Charity Harding, of Trucksville, Penn., known as "the Little Prophetess," Faith's was a remarkable story and is featured in our upcoming new book, True Tales from the Edgar Cayce Archives: Lives Touched and Lessons Learned from the Sleeping Prophet.


Faith Harding blog
Faith Harding


At the height of her renown in 1941, the child "oracle" was featured on popular radio shows, written about in Time magazine, had a weekly newspaper column, and was pursued by a movie studio. The whirlwind of attention was the result of psychic pronouncements that Faith's mother claimed her daughter would scribble on drawing paper or deliver in a state of near ecstasy.


Among Faith's uncannily accurate prophecies, delivered in biblical language, was the unexpected resignation of Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis, FDR's decision to seek an unprecedented third term in office, and the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Interspersed with such pronouncements were compelling spiritual messages that included a life reading describing a previous incarnation of Adolf Hitler as Pontius Pilate.


Two Cayce readings conducted in 1940 made clear that the Little Prophetess possessed special gifts. Reading 2156-1 describes her as "a chosen channel of… love which the Father hath bestowed upon the children of men." This and the next reading suggested that she would never have a normal childhood, because she was not a normal child, having been born with gifts beyond those of even Edgar Cayce. In addition to the power of prophecy, the readings stated, she might manifest the ability to heal through the laying on of hands.


According to Cayce, previous to her present incarnation, she had been Saint Cecilia, the patron saint of musicians; and before that, Elizabeth, the mother of John the Baptist and cousin of the Virgin Mary. She had, it seemed, represented female energy since the dawn of time, when, as the reading said, "the sons of God came together to announce… a way being opened for the… souls of God's creation."

Archangel Michael made his extraordinary appearance during reading number 2156-2 (the second given for her). Accompanying his entry into the session was a strange wind that rattled the closed door and windows. The vibrational change was enough to bring about spontaneous tears to those gathered around Edgar.


"HARK! YE FRIENDS! I, MICHAEL, LORD OF THE WAY, WOULD GIVE THEE WARNING! BOW THINE HEADS, YE VILE ONES OF THE EARTH! KNOW WHAT HAS BEEN ENTRUSTED TO THEE!"

Michael went on to make his message clear: those who were "honored with the care of this prophetess" must protect and love her and keep strife from the door. They were to foster "patience, in love, in kindness, in gentleness, in those things that bring constructive, hopeful, helpful forces into the experiences of others."


Given Michael's message, which was both a warning and a pronouncement, Edgar invited Faith and her parents to visit Virginia Beach to attend one of the first annual A.R.E. Congresses where further readings could be conducted and the child's needs addressed. If anyone could understand what Faith was going through, it would be Edgar, who had himself had been visited by an angel in his early youth.


This trip to Virginia Beach was not to be. Against her father's wishes, her mother took Faith to North Carolina with the intention of installing her in a temple where, it was presumed, Faith would prophesy as did the Greek oracles of antiquity. A terrible situation then ensued as the six-year-old child was caught in a bitter custody battle between a mother craving attention and a father determined that Faith be just a normal child and lead a normal life. As a result, the child who might have otherwise manifested powers beyond even those of Edgar Cayce, put her psychic past completely behind her and went on to lead her life like any ordinary American woman, wife, and mother.


It is with much pleasure and humility that we have extended Edgar's original invitation for Faith Harding to visit Virginia Beach and attend this year's Congress. She has generously agreed to be our guest on Sunday, June 21, 2015, at the 84th Annual A.R.E. Congress. We hope many of you will come and join us for what will truly be a once-in-a-life-time event. Share the love as we extend a warm welcome in the spirit in which Archangel Michael admonished: "Give ye—each one—thanks and praise to thy Maker… that ye have been counted worthy to come into the presence of one so endeared to the heart of God."

Hypertension Wellness Wednesday

(Edgar Cayce Readings, Holistic Health, Wellness Wednesday) Permanent link

The fifth in a series of discussions from the Cayce health readings.

HYPERTENSION
Josephine Adamson, MD, editor



wellness Wednesday blog05-20-015WHAT IS HYPERTENSION?

Hypertension (high blood pressure) is an elevation in overall blood pressure, which is the force created by the heart as it pushes blood through the circulatory system. Blood pressure is measured in two numbers: the first, or top number, is the "systolic" pressure, created when the heart contracts; the second, or bottom number, is the "diastolic" pressure, or the period during which the heart relaxes. Normal blood pressure at rest is 120/80 or lower.


Hypertension affects about 70 million Americans (1 in every 3 adults.) The incidence of hypertension in the United States has increased dramatically over the past 30 years. Elevated blood pressure means that the heart is working harder than normal, putting both the heart and the arteries under greater strain. Chronic high blood pressure may contribute to heart attacks, strokes, kidney failure, and eye damage. According to recent data from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), 7 out of 10 people having their first heart attack have high blood pressure, and 8 out of 10 people having their first stroke have high blood pressure.


A small percentage of people with hypertension have kidney or adrenal problems. Another small percentage have an underlying genetic factor. In the vast majority of people with high blood pressure, however, lifestyle-related issues play a huge role. A diet high in salt and sugar, physical inactivity, obesity, drinking too much alcohol, and tobacco use are all associated with an increased risk of high blood pressure.


THE READINGS’ PERSPECTIVE ON HYPERTENSION


HypertensionThe Edgar Cayce readings were all given before 1945. Obesity rates in the United States before 1945 were only a fraction of what they are today. Processed high-sodium foods were rare then, and most Americans were physically active. It is likely that the readings for hypertension that were given then were for individuals who had different causes of hypertension than most Americans of today.


The readings described what science has recently illustrated: how engorgements and clogs in the tiny capillaries and blood vessels slow blood flow and demand extra force (higher blood pressure) from the heart to pump the blood through the system and back to the heart to be replenished with oxygen.



THE CAYCE READINGS’ RECOMMENDATIONS FOR TREATING HYPERTENSION


Though the Cayce readings about hypertension may have been more generalizable 100 years ago, most of the therapeutic recommendations are, interestingly, widely applicable for Americans today. A positive attitude, maintaining a healthy weight, eating healthy foods, moderate exercise, quitting smoking and excessive alcohol use—all of these Cayce recommendations have been shown in current medical studies to decrease blood pressure. Detailed therapeutic summaries from the readings include:

  • AVOIDING CONSTIPATION/INTERNAL CLEANSING: Hydrotherapy includes drinking six to eight glasses of pure water daily, colonic irrigations (preferably) or enemas, and cleansing diet of fresh fruits and vegetables. Castor oil packs across the abdomen are recommended to improve eliminations. Regular exercise and a plant-based, whole food diet will prevent constipation from becoming a problem.
  • SPINAL MANIPULATION AND MASSAGE: For those individuals who have a neurological component to their hypertension, osteopathic or chiropractic treatment was recommended to relieve any pressures that may be hindering circulation. Special attention is to be paid to the thoracic vertebrae (2nd to 9th thoracic) as this portion of the spine was often cited in the Cayce readings on hypertension. If osteopathic or chiropractic treatment is not available, the use of an electric vibrator along the spine may be helpful. Finally, gentle massage is suggested to relax the body and balance the circulation.
  • DIET: The Basic Cayce Diet, intended to improve assimilation and elimination, is what modern literature refers to as Mediterranean: olive oil, fresh vegetables, almonds, poultry, seafood, and limited consumption of meat. The readings recommended avoiding foods which produce toxicity and drain the system, like fried foods and refined sugary carbohydrates ("junk food"). Certain food combinations are emphasized.
  • RADIAL APPLIANCE (Radiac®): The Radial Appliance, also known as the Radiac, is a subtle energy device frequently recommended by Edgar Cayce to balance the circulation and relax the body. Most people do not feel anything during a treatment session but notice improved sleep and a sense of well-being with repeated use. The Cayce readings emphasized the importance of maintaining a positive attitude while attached to the appliance and encouraged individuals to meditate during the therapy sessions. Though there are no scientific studies to research its use, there have been no reported side-effects.
  • MODERATE EXERCISE: Moderate exercise is an important aspect of balanced living. Walking was a favorite exercise recommended by Edgar Cayce for people suffering from high blood pressure. A daily walk after dinner is a good place to start.
  • ATTITUDES AND EMOTIONS: The mental and emotional aspects of healing are frequently discussed in the Cayce readings. Particularly, an attitude of desiring and expecting to be healed is important. A positive mental and emotional attitude can be created and maintained by focusing on a higher purpose (ideal) for being healed.

Time for a Spiritual Call for Action

(Edgar Cayce Readings, Spiritual Growth) Permanent link

Time for a Spiritual Call for Action
By Judith Lickert



Have the headlines of actions that have gained attention in the world left you feeling distraught, hopeless, or fearful?  It’s quite understandable. Perhaps it’s time to try out a new perspective. Instead of seeing things as hopeless, what if we saw an opportunity to use our spiritual "muscle"?


world-situation


You may be asking, what is my spiritual muscle? Perhaps a new perspective is required here, too. God is love. You and I were created in the image and likeness of God. Therefore, you and I are love as well. Love isn't some airy-fairy emotion; it is the energy that the universe—thus you and I—are made of. The stars, the sun, the water, the earth, the plants, the trees, the animals, the cup you may be holding, the supplements you may be taking, and yes, even the medications. Love is the basis of everything; it is the fundamental building block, and you and I in our creation were given the ability to use it. And we do so all of the time, but perhaps not consciously. Now it is time to wake up.


out in natureHow can you do this? Quiet yourself and reach within.  Feel something stir.  Don't think about it.  Get out of your head, for your mind has been the keeper of the veil of forgetfulness.  Go forth from your heart.  Allow yourself to feel the energy in your body. Be aware of the energy around you and move this awareness out further and further until it reaches the stars. Use your imagination for it is centered in the heart and leads the mind. The energy within your body and surrounding it is all the same; it is love. The energy that holds the universe together while creating all about us is also within us. Allow yourself to remember this through your heart and connect with the power that has been given to you.


What can you do for the world? As you move through your day, with each thought, stay in your true being, in love. In each interaction with other people or situations, remember who you are and stay in love. It is possible. You build your spiritual muscle by using it. Maybe once a day at first, but the more it is used, the stronger and easier it becomes.


Since we are all part of the same whole, the One, as we change, we make it easier for all to change. We lift our own vibrations, and others feel that energy and want to join it. The desire creates the change. As the whole is lifted back into remembrance of whom it is, the world changes to reflect that energy.


Why spend your time and energy despairing for the condition of the world, when you can bring peace into your life and create a loving world by simply being what you really are? Do not believe that life has to be arduous; you are love and joy—be willing to accept that and live from it.


live from love and joy


Here are some truths from the Edgar Cayce readings:


 

That which makes for the dividing line between the finite and the infinite, the divine and the wholly human, the carnal and the spiritual. For the will may be made one with Him, or for self alone. With the Will, then, does man destine in the activities of a material experience how he shall make for the relationships with Truth. What is Truth? That which makes aware to the inmost self or the soul the Divine and its purposes with that soul. (Edgar Cayce reading 262-81)


Why worry, when ye may pray? Know that the power of thyself is very limited. The power of Creative Force is unlimited. (Edgar Cayce reading2981-1)


Judith Lickert blogJudith Lickert has been a student of the Cayce readings for over 40 years. She is a Life Member and a volunteer in the Pittsburgh, Pa., area. This past year she experienced some life-threatening illnesses. She has found that these have given her the opportunity to deeply recover some memory of who she really is and to live from it.
