Remembering the Prime Directive
of the Cayce Work

By Lynne Salomon Miceli

Edgar Cayce How to Develop Psychic AbilityWhen people think of the Edgar Cayce information, many think first of the more than 9,000 health readings that Cayce gave. Or the readings that focused on controversial Earth-change predictions. Others are most fascinated by the readings on ancient cultures. But there is one main theme that runs through the readings. It comes through in the health readings, the readings on Earth changes, and the information on Egypt, Atlantis, and other ancient cultures. And it’s as important for us today as it was at the time the readings were given.

One of the advantages of working for Atlantic University is that I can attend the weekly lunchtime meetings of the Egypt Study Group in the A.R.E. Visitor Center. Ann Clapp, who compiled the Edgar Cayce Library Series volumes on Egypt, founded the group at the urging of Elizabeth Waitekus, now co-facilitator with Ann. This group has waxed and waned during the past 16 years but its current mode is of exuberant growth. The focus of our study is the era approximately 10,500 B.C., when, according to the Cayce readings, Ra Ta, or Ra (an early incarnation of Edgar Cayce) was High Priest in Egypt. Also incarnated in Egypt at the time were numerous members of what we have come to call Cayce’s “soul group.”

This era, the readings tell us, was “one of the most momentous occasions or periods in the world’s history” (Edgar Cayce reading 900-275). Great efforts were made to develop human beings physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually to fulfill our highest potential. This effort was pursued in the ancient temples: the Temple of Sacrifice, the Temple Beautiful, and the Great Pyramid. The tenets put in place in Egypt at that time were those later taught by the Master—who studied in Egypt, among other places, during his time of preparation.

Despite the archetypal enormity of their activities and the challenges they met, people of that time in Egypt seem to have been much like people of our time in so many ways—having many of the same appetites, temptations, failings, and struggles.

One theme emerges time and again in these readings, though expressed in many different words. In the Egypt Group, we keep a small bell on hand and jingle it each time this refrain is repeated in the text.

From life reading 97-2: “In the one before this we find in the land now known as Egypt. The entity then among that peoples who gave the first study of the laws as pertaining to the relationship of man to man, and man to the creative energies…”

From life reading 2652-2: “...with the acceptance of that taught by those that set up the study of the relations of man to man, and man to God, and God to man. The entity gained in the application of same…”

From life reading 355-1: “the entity...aided in bringing much to a peoples... for the maintaining of those influences where…there might be given greater expression to the manifestations of the relationships between man and man, and between the Creative Influences…”

Ra Ta and his colleagues sent emissaries to other nations to share these teachings to correlate them with the spiritual understandings of other people.

From reading 1159-1: “...The entity made for an assistance in those activities when there were the correlations of those teachings from the peoples of the land now called the Indian, or the land of Saneid, the land of On, the people from the Mongolian land, as they gathered in those experiences for their correlation of the best in each that...might be applied...as they sought to make for greater and greater manifestations of their dealings with their fellow man and their activities that brought them in closer relation-ship and understanding with the Creative Forces.”

The theme was stated clearly in a reading Edgar Cayce gave for himself: “Let’s don’t forget the thesis, or the key for which all of this understanding had come: That there might be a closer relationship of man to the Creator and of man to man.” (294-149)

In 1928, reading 254-42 was given for the Board of the Association of National Investigators—a precursor of the A.R.E—which indicated that this should remain the prime directive for the Work:

“...This, then, should be first and foremost: The determined purpose...to have whole hearted cooperation, in a one-minded purpose, and that purpose to make manifest the love of God and man; man's relation to man; man's relation to God. In THIS there must come, as has ever been given, success in such terms as the service is meted…” In 1929, reading 2087-1, given for the development of Atlantic University (and specifically for its first president, William Mosely Brown) stated: “This shall be kept first and foremost in the heart and minds of each and every individual. Not as a tenet to blind the eyes of any. Not merely as a catch-phrase…but rather as a living motto in the hearts, in the lives… of each and every individual, whether this be the truckman, the gardener, the instructor, the pupil, or he that would head such an endeavor - but let it ever be ‘That We May Make Manifest OUR Love, MY Love, ALL Love, for God and Man’.”

Today, written over the doorway of the A.R.E. Visitors Center are the words, “That we may make manifest the love of God and man.”

Still, we might need to remind ourselves that our organization exists—now as in ancient Egypt—to foster a closer relationship between man and God, God and man, and man and man. Let us remember this and claim the promise given in reading 2673-1: “... may it be said of self—‘Even the stars in their courses will fight for the entity’ in aiding others to understand their relationships with the Creative Forces and their fellow man!”

Noah the Movie – A Missed Opportunity, part one

Noah the Movie – A Missed Opportunity, part one
By Kevin J. Todeschi

Having been an Ark enthusiast for more than 30 years, I had some measure of anticipation when I first heard about the recent Noah movie: Would the movie capture some of the archetypal significance that resulted in Flood Stories for nearly every culture and civilization on the planet? Would it bring together the tales from various scholarly traditions? Would it explain unexplained portions of the Genesis account? Would it follow some of the same threads of information that had so inspired me? And so on. Unfortunately, I have to say that five minutes into the movie any anticipation I had went right out the window, as the film I watched had absolutely no bearing on the Noah I have come to know.

Noah and Dove

Wikipedia:12th century Venetian mosaic

As background information, I was first inspired by the Noah story while reading the Genesis account and realizing two things that had never been pointed out to me: Methuselah was Noah’s grandfather, and the scriptural timing for each individual’s respective lifespan suggested that Methuselah had died during the Flood. My passion for the story was further enhanced while reading an Edgar Cayce life reading (those readings dealing with reincarnation) that was given to a 28-year-old woman in 1944, when Cayce stated: “What an unusual record—and one of those who might be termed as physically the mothers of the world! For the entity was one of those in the ark.” (3653-1)

Eventually I was led to Violet Cummings’ book that dealt with her husband’s search for the Ark: Noah’s Ark: Fact or Fable? And I came to understand that since 1840 alone there have been more than 20 recorded sightings of Noah’s craft by approximately 200 people. My enthusiasm for the story grew, and I scoured dozens of resources. I eventually wrote my master’s thesis on the topic of “The Ark Myth: Biblical, Rabbinical, and Transpersonal,” (1988), and in time my novel, The Rest of the Noah Story (2010), pulling together all that I had discovered through many decades of research and study. Unfortunately for today’s movie goers, the producers didn’t even get the Genesis account correct.

The movie contains giant rock creatures (similar to the Ents, large tree creatures in Lord of the Rings or the rock monster in Galaxy Quest—I am not making this up)! From the movie’s perspective, only Shem has a wife aboard, which contradicts the Genesis account: “In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah’s wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark.” (Genesis 7:13) Causing quite a bit of frustration for at least one of Noah’s other sons. There is also an evil stowaway onboard, Tubal-cain, who in the Bible is Noah’s cousin and a maker of iron and brass (Genesis 4:22). The movie also has Noah convinced that his mission is to help God put an end to humankind, at one point coming to the brink of almost killing his granddaughters so that no further wombs will be available to birth humankind.

There is a wealth of rabbinical wisdom and inspiration that the movie also overlooks or never knew of to begin with. Rather than having a vision of Enoch (a biblical forefather that never died but was “taken up” by God [Genesis 5:24]), Noah has a crazed dream. Rather than drawing upon some of the rabbinical thought as to why Ham deserted his family and became a wanderer and the eventual father of slaves, the movie version portrayed him as mad at his dad for allowing his girlfriend to die in a mob stampede. The list goes on and on.

Noah's Sacrifice

Wikipedia: Noah's Sacrifice
by Daniel Maclise

Perhaps more than any other Biblical tale, the story of Noah, his family, the Ark, and the Flood are known by individuals all over the world. A conservative estimate is that more than 1.5 billion of the earth’s inhabitants are familiar with the tale! However, the story of Noah is not the only known Flood Tradition. In fact, the “Epic of Gilgamesh” from Babylonian tablets dates back to the 7th Century B.C. and is also widely known.

This story, in essential detail, can be recited by countless individuals around the world. What is not so well known is the fact that Genesis contains not one account of the flood story but two! Modern religious scholarship has isolated at least three major sources for the Book of Genesis: the “J source,” the “P source,” and the “E source,” standing for Jehovah, the Priestly document, and Elohim, respectively. It is the J source and the P source which each have their own account of the Flood.

Originally, the different sources of Genesis were discovered because of the way in which the sources referred to God. The J source uses only the name “Yahweh” (Lord) when referring to God; the P source uses the names “Elohim” (God) and “El Shaddai” (God Almighty), and the E source uses both “Yahweh and “Elohim.” When the Bible was being compiled (no, it did not fall from the sky in one piece), it was the job of a “redactor” to compile all major sources together into one story, but in several instances it is easy to see items in the Noah story that were overlooked by the redactor. Examples: 1) each account has a different number of animals that Noah was instructed to take into the Ark, and 2) each account has a different length of time for the Flood itself.

P Source


Total number of animals = One pair of each creature (Genesis 6:19).







Total length of Flood: The water lasted 150 days and remained on the earth for a total of one year and 11 days.

J Source


Total number of animals: Seven pairs of birds and “clean” animals, and one pair of unclean (Genesis 7:2). Essentially a “clean animal” is one which chews a cud and has a divided hoof (Leviticus 7:1-11); a clean animal never eats other animals.


Total length of Flood: The rain lasted 40 days and 40 nights and the water evaporated after three seven-day intervals of Noah releasing the dove out of the Ark to see if it was safe. Total = 61 days.

Regardless of whether or not we believe the Flood story, it is an archetype, because it is a part of the human experience all over the world. More than 200 “Flood Stories” are scattered throughout the various cultures and continents on the planet. The story has meaning across time and traditions and, as an archetype, is a symbol that deeply touches some aspect of human experience. What this means is that over and above any possible literal truth, the Ark can be seen as a symbolic representation of transformation and change, because the ship’s occupants underwent a journey over which they had no control and yet somehow ended up at a higher level of awareness because of their catastrophic experience. In most of these accounts, legend describes how a family survives a deluge of enormous proportions. Prior to the disaster, the family generally pulls together everything that is part of their world (such as the animals in the story of Noah described in Genesis) and finds refuge in a craft or a ship in which they can ride out the storm. Oftentimes, the family has no control over their journey for the ship is inundated from above and below and they are forced to simply ride out the storm. At the end of the flood, the craft generally finds higher and stable ground and the occupants can disembark and begin their lives anew. Everything that was a part of their old world is now a part of their new (e.g., the animals get off the Ark as well). The difference is that now all of the ship’s occupants find themselves upon higher ground.

Because so much of the today’s world finds itself in the midst of transformation and change, this archetype has resurfaced. However, take my advice—skip the movie and read the Genesis account.

Mound Builders and Cliff Dwellers

Mound Builders and Cliff Dwellers
By John Fuhler

When Edgar Cayce documented the Indian migrations from the Yucatan to the North American Southeast, he was engaging a subject that would become one of the most controversial in American archaeology. Though hypotheses of the Yucatan-American Southeast connection have circulated some 200 years, it was not until the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries that these relationships have been systematically explored and the hypotheses tested. Yet, as recently as 2003, some archaeologists considered the very discussion taboo! i  

Language, like genetics, is an artifact of prehistoric cultures. With careful analysis of the data, linguists are able to deduce the origins and movements of peoples across space and time. The results are as relevant and incontrovertible as genetic data.

Joseph Greenberg assigned the Gulf languages of the American Southeast to the Penutian family of languages based his hypothesis that Yuki, a California language isolate, shares an affinity with the California Penutian languages and the Gulf languages of the American Southeast. ii In 1987, linguistics established the Penutian family to include California Penutian, Mexican Penutian, Yuki-Gulf Penutian, New Mexico Penutian (Zuni), as well as four other groups. Though not uncontested, this classification effectively confirmed the Yuki-Gulf relationship, thereby providing the crucial link required to affirm Greenberg’s rationale.iii  



These data are very relevant to our study of the readings, two of which are crucial:


The entity was among those of the second generation of Atlanteans who struggled northward from Yucatan, settling in what is now a portion of Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio; being among those of the earlier period known as Mound Builders. (3528-1)

…the entity was…among those called the Cliff Dwellers, being of those peoples who came up from Yucatan to the Northeast and to portions of Arizona and New Mexico… (5729-1)

These two readings recall Greenberg’s hypothesis about the linguistic relationship between the peoples of the Yucatan, the American Southeast, the American Southwest, and California. Likewise it echoes an observation about the Yuki that Robert Melton wrote to Morris Swadesh:

Ethnological evidence [indicates] that the Yuki do not “belong” in California, and have had seemingly direct contact with the Pueblo and SW, most likely in passage from near New Orleans.iv  

Cherokee mythology also remembers their migration from the Yucatan to the American Southeast.v And the Cherokee blood group and antigen traits cluster most closely with the Eastern Maya and Nahua.vi

Several readings document that some migrated directly from the Yucatan to the American Southwest:

The entity was among those who came to what is now the Yucatan land, later journeying with many of those peoples to the south and west – or in portions of Arizona… (2576-1)

The entity came to the South and West from what is now the Yucatan… (1204-3)

Circle in Southwest

In this regard, then, the presence of the Zuni, one of the congeners of the Penutian family of languages, confirms a relationship between the American Southwest and the Yucatan.vii

Thus, linguistic data reveal the relationship between the Yucatan and the American Southeast; the readings, Cherokee mythology and blood data attest to migrations from the Yucatan to the Eastern United States; and the readings and linguistics reveal a connection to the American desert Southwest.

Morris Swadesh postulated that a minimum of 96 centuries was required for the lexicostatistic diversity among what he called Macro-Mayan, which he stated includes Sapir’s Penutian.viii From the readings we learn that the egress to the Yucatan began about 12,550 YBP.

From time as counted in the present we would turn back to 10,600 years before the Prince of Peace came into the land of promise, and find a civilization being disturbed by corruption from within to such measures that the elements join in bringing devastation to a stiffnecked and adulterous people… (5750-1)

Given the limitations of Swadesh’ lexicostatistic measures to estimate the depth of time required to produced the diversity now found among these languages, future research might well reveal a time depth closer to that suggested by the readings.

Now that Mexican and American anthropologists are daring to explore the question of a direct relationship between the Yucatan and the American Southeast, they have found compelling discoveries. These include well-documented monumental and ideological elements as well as a plethora of material artifacts, all testifying to that relationship. We are only just now discovering its scope.

Snow in Egypt?

(Ancient Mysteries, Edgar Cayce Readings) Permanent link

Snow in Egypt?
By Alison Ray

For the first time in more than 100 years (more precisely 112 years) people from all nations saw the images of snow falling on Cairo, Egypt and even the Giza plateau. Given its desert climate, any precipitation in Cairo is rare; the city averages less than an inch of rain per year and warm, the average temperature in Cairo in December is nearly 60 degrees Fahrenheit. However, there were images of Cairo blanketed in snow, pictures of camels curled up in the snow, even images of the pyramids with a light dusting of snow. The photo of the pyramids, which was shared by tens of thousands of social-networkers has since been deemed a ‘fake’ but the outlines of the majestic pyramids seeming to glow with a bright white hue caused me to wonder if that was how they looked when they were first built.

While traditional archaeology suggests that the Great Pyramid was built around 2500 B.C. under the Pharaoh Khufu (Cheops) who ruled from 2551-2528 B.C., according to the Cayce readings, the pyramids are much older. The Great Pyramid was constructed between 10,490 and 10,390 B.C. by the efforts of an earlier incarnation of Edgar Cayce as the high priest Ra Ta and the efforts of the native Egyptians and the Atlanteans. For all things old are not primitive, in fact, the readings indicate that this was a spiritually and technologically advanced society that created temples for teaching the ‘Law of One.’ In addition, there were centers of learning called Temple Beautiful much like universities for teaching of vocations, meditation, and universal laws. There was also the Temple of Sacrifice much like a hospital and spa for physical and mental purification and rejuvenation. There were emissaries sent around the world to share the teaching and ideals.

It was the building of the Great Pyramid that unified the people with “what may be truly termed the first national or nation spirit of a peoples…” (Edgar Cayce reading 195-151) “Hence there began the first preparation for what has later become that called The Great Pyramid, that was to be the presentation of that which had been gained by these peoples through the activities of Ra-Ta…” (195-151) The Great Pyramid was built for the preservation of their understanding “not only for those in the present but for the generations that were to come…” (Edgar Cayce reading 294-151)

The Great Pyramid was built by Ra Ta working with Hermes as the construction architect and Ra Ta’s wife, Isris, for counsel and advice. “Then began the laying out of the pyramid and the building of same…” (294-151) It was designed based on “the position of the various stars, that acted in the place about which this particular solar system circles…” (Edgar Cayce reading 294-151) The Great Pyramids was “to be the place of initiation of the initiates that were to act in the capacity of leaders in the various activities…” (294-151)

Reading 5748-6 explains how the pyramid was built:

(Q) How was this particular Great Pyramid of Gizeh built?
(A) By the use of those forces in nature as make for iron to swim. Stone floats in the air in the same manner. This will be discovered in '58.

While the readings did not predict snow in Egypt, they did suggest that one day we may again become unified as one people and that one day the Hall of Records will provide “proof of the information may be found…for physically there are evidences of the activity of mental man in archaeological works, see?” (Edgar Cayce reading 254-47)

From Atlantis to the Yucatan Peninsula

(Ancient Mysteries, Edgar Cayce Readings) Permanent link

From Atlantis to the Yucatan Peninsula
By John Fuhler

Before that the entity was in the Atlantean land. There we find the entity was very close to those in authority…For it was the entity that received the message as to the needs for the dividing of the children of the Law of One for the preservation of the truths of same in other lands. Hence we find the entity was among those who were as the directors of those expeditions, or the leaving for the many varied lands just before the breaking up of the Atlantean land. Hence the entity outlined in the most part…the expedition guided by Ax-tell and the ones to the Pyrenees and to the Yucatan and to the land of Og. (Edgar Cayce Reading 1681-1)

This is one of about two dozen readings describing the emigrations to the Yucatan peninsula after the destruction of Atlantis (or Poseidia). Among those who immigrated to the Yucatan were very creative individuals, the products of whose endeavors inspired the temples and plazas which survive to this very day. Some of these strove to establish and perpetuate the Law of One, while others pursued the path of self-aggrandizement and indulgence. The readings reveal a complex story of cultures, values and peoples. Some elements of the readings have since been demonstrated by the fields of genetics, archaeology and linguistics, while other elements reflect what have become hotbeds of contention. A number of details raise questions in areas of study which have yet to be explored.

The final Atlantean destruction was foreknown sufficiently that expeditions to various overseas lands were organized:

The entity was among the Princes of the land that made for the separating of those influences wherein there might be established the journeyings to other lands, with the keepings of records… (Edgar Cayce Reading 1215-4)

Before the final destruction, some ten thousand B.C., many of the inhabitants migrated to adjoining countries. The Inca and Aztec were descendants of the resulting mixtures, as were the American Indians, though a little farther removed from direct descent. (Edgar Cayce Reading 364-6 Report)

The tradition of the Mayan forebears migrating to Atlantis from the east is preserved by Diego de Landa in Relaciòn de las cosas de Yucatán, originally published in the mid-Sixteenth Century:

Some old men of Yucatán say that they heard from their ancestors that this land was settled by people who came from the East, whom God delivered by opening 12 roads for them through the sea.i

According to the readings the means of transportation included balloons and boats:

The entity then was not only one skilled in aircraft and in watercraft, as an aviator and a navigator… (Edgar Cayce Reading 1215-4)

The aircraft were described in the readings:

Much of the nature, in the EARLIER portion, as would be were the hide of MANY of the pachyderm, or elephants, many into the CONTAINERS for the gases that were used as both lifting and for the impelling of the crafts about the various portions of the continent, and even abroad. (Edgar Cayce Reading 364-6)

Other readings corroborate a specific detail of the Hopi origin myth:

Now in the Third World they multiplied in such numbers and advanced so rapidly that they created big cities, countries, a whole civilization. This made it difficult for them to conform to the plan of Creation…they began to use their creative power in another evil and destructive way…some of them made a pátuwvota [shield made of hide] and with their creative power made it fly through the air. ii

From the readings:

Before that the entity was in the Atlantean land, before there were the second of the upheavals, when there was the dividing of the islands…The unusual activities that may come with the new developments in air, in water travel, are not new to the entity…for these were the beginning of the developments at that period for the escape. (3004-1)

…entity was one who builded the planes, those activities in air, in water, as directed by the stone from which the forces were generated…as the radio beam in the present… (2795-1)

It is clear from these readings that these aircraft were developed just prior to the second upheaval, and were used at least until the final upheaval of Atlantis. This period corresponds precisely to the Third World of Hopi myth.

The readings refer to trans-Atlantic and trans-Pacific boat crossings. At the time these readings were given, American archaeologists believed such were impossible. To date no ancient boats, ships or canoes from such remote prehistory have been found, but the circumstantial evidence is increasing. The genetic evidence alone is sufficient to demonstrate humans in the Americas since the last Ice Age, at a time when migration by land was impossible. Once again, the readings anticipated scientific evidence which would only be demonstrated decades after they were given.

Diagnosis from a Single Drop of Blood

Diagnosis from a Single Drop of Blood 
By Kevin J. Todeschi



A recent article from The Wall Street Journal titled “Elizabeth Holmes: The Breakthrough of Instant Diagnosis” sounded eerily familiar. In the article, dated September 8, 2013, Joseph Rago interviewed Elizabeth Holmes, a 29-year-old chemical and electrical engineer and entrepreneur, about the company, Theranos, that she founded in 2003. Theranos is developing an entrepreneurial invention that could revolutionize medicine and diagnose any illness by processing more than 1,000 laboratory tests on a single drop of blood. Ms. Holmes's long-term goal is to provide cost effective, highly accurate, and simple diagnostic services to every American home.


More than 85 years ago, Edgar Cayce went into a trance-state to help a 46-year-old woman suffering from pelvic tumors and ovarian cysts. During the course of the woman’s psychic reading, Cayce foresaw the use of blood as a diagnostic tool, and even the possibility of diagnosing any illness from a single drop of blood:

“For, as is seen, there is no condition existent in a body that the reflection of same may not be traced in the blood supply, for not only does the blood stream carry the rebuilding forces to the body, it also takes the used forces and eliminates same through their proper channels in the various portions of the system… Hence there is ever seen in the blood stream the reflections or evidences of that condition being carried on in the physical body. The day may yet arrive when one may take a drop of blood and diagnose the condition of any physical body...” (Reading 283-2)

Although it may have seemed like science fiction in 1927 when the reading was given, this possibility has become scientific fact for many illnesses today. Blood tests are commonly used to diagnose diseases including cancer, AIDS, diabetes, anemia, and coronary heart disease. Tests can evaluate the function of organs including the kidneys, liver, thyroid, and heart, and even screen for risk factors for heart disease. With developments in technology especially those offered by Theranos, we now appear to be moving even closer to possibility of diagnosis of any illness from a drop of blood as predicted by Edgar Cayce.


Nearly 70 percent of the Cayce readings were concerned with the diagnosing of disease and the outlining of treatment. These readings are still being studied in Virginia Beach, Virginia, and around the world (with access to all of the readings via our member-only section and on the DVD-Rom). For many, Cayce was a last hope for an illness diagnosed by renowned medical institutions as incurable. While he had no medical training, when he entered into a trance-like state, he was able to tap into an endless source of health information. He could accurately diagnose illness and prescribe treatment for people he had never met or seen.

Since 1901, the information in the Cayce readings has been explored by individuals from every imaginable background and discipline. Throughout the last 100 or so years, the vast scope of information that was offered by Cayce 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 to be years ahead of his time.

The Hopi Indians and 
the Edgar Cayce Readings 
By John Fuhler


In the rain shadow of the San Francisco Peaks, west of the Little Colorado River and north of Sunset Crater Volcano, sits Wupatki Pueblo. Onetime home to many individuals, Wupatki was a major trade center. The pueblo was occupied for about 700 years, between CE 500 and 1182, after which the residents moved to more fertile lands.

The name “Wupatki” means “Tall House” in Hopi. It is apparently one of the resting places of the Hisatsinom, or “Ancient Ones.” Hopi mythology teaches that Masaw required the various peoples to migrate to all ends of the Fourth World before settling at their current location, where they were to await his return. They came from such places as Betatakin, Puerco Pueblo, Homolovi, and Tuzigoot.

But the Hopi ancestors did not always live on this Fourth World. Their ancient ones came a very great distance a long time ago.

Until recently American anthropologists held firmly to the hypothesis that all indigenous American peoples were descended from one group of Asian people who crossed the land bridge over the Bering Sea during the last Ice Age. This hypothesis is being challenged on all sides, and not only by the genetic data, but also by archaeological and linguistic data.

So Spider Woman gathered earth, this time of four colors, yellow, red, white and black; mixed with túchvala, the liquid of her mouth; molded them…these forms were human beings in the image of Sótuknang. (from Book of the Hopi)i

“He then projected himself into five centers at once as Adam…” (Edgar Cayce reading 364-13)

“The appearance of man…was in five different places as the five different races, at the same time. The white race appeared in the Carpathian basin, the yellow in Tibet, the red in Atlantis, the brown in Lemuria, the black in Africa. (Edgar Cayce reading 294-202)

The readings tell us that Lemuria was located west of South America (364-13), and it extended to the South Pacific (364-4). Ice caused the poles to shift (5249-1). Remnant residents from Lemuria settled in the American Southwest, in Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah (851-2), Colorado (962-1), Southern California, and Mexico (5750-1).

Elements of the Hopi Creation myth corroborate these details:

…the world…teetered off balance, spun around crazily, then rolled over twice…This was the end of the Second World.

…Sótuknang came to Spider Woman and said, ”…It will be difficult; with all this destruction going on, for them to gather at the far end of the world I have designated…Then you will save them when I destroy this world with water.”

So he loosed the waters upon the earth. Waves higher than mountains rolled in upon the land. Continents broke asunder and sank beneath the seas.

…they saw they were on a little piece of land that had been the top of one of their highest mountains. All else…was water.

So Spider Woman directed them to make round, flat boats…For a long time they drifted…and came to another rocky island.

So the people kept traveling toward the rising sun in their reed boats…

At last they saw land stretching from north to south as far as they could see…Before long they landed and joyfully jumped out upon a sandy shore.

Soon all the others arrived and when they were gathered together, Sótuknang appeared…”Look now at the way you have come.”

Looking to the west and south, the people could see…the islands upon which they had rested. “These are the footprints of your journey…the tops of the high mountains of the Third World, which I destroyed. Now watch.”

As the people watched them, the closest one sank under the water, then the next, until all were gone…ii

Interestingly, both the myth and the corpus of the readings can be corroborated by linguistics and genetics.

The dominant language family of the American Southwest is the Uto-Aztecan. Its core members occupied precisely those locations cited in the readings: Southern California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and Northern Mexico. The original Uto-Aztecan homeland is in the area of Death Valley; and only later did representatives of the family move southward as far as the Yucatan. It is important to note that the Uto-Aztecan languages began to diverge from each other 9,000-13,000 years ago.iii According to the readings, Lemuria had sunk by 12,600 years ago. (5750-1)

From the perspective of genetics, some astonishing data can be obtained. One of the major American Indian genetic markers is known as Haplogroup B?. This marker is associated specifically with Pueblo Indians of the American Southwest.iv This is a very important fact for a number of reasons. First and foremost of these is the B Haplogroup is shared by Turks, Mongols, Han Chinese, Indonesians, Koreans, Malaysians, Melanesians, Micronesians, Filipinos, Polynesians, Taiwanese, Thais, Tibetans, and Vietnamese. The B Haplogroup is distributed from Southeast Asia across the Pacific archipelagos into the Americas. Though the haplogroup is greatest among the Pueblo Indians of North America, a greater frequency of Haplogroup B occurs in Central America, and an even greater frequency in South America!v Above and beyond these data, the American Haplogroup B? is most closely related to that of the Han Chinese. Moreover, there is a lack of this genetic marker among Siberian, Arctic, and Subarctic populations, indicating this marker arrived in America via the ocean and not across Beringia. Given the span of time necessary for the divergence between the American and Asian populations, the route across Beringia would have been blocked by the mountain of glacial ice covering southern Alaska and Northwestern Canada.vi Ironically, the so-called land bridge was un-glaciated! but the Aleutians were one massive wall of ice which stretched up into Northern Canada. 

Here again is another rather portentous correlation between the readings and Hopi mythology:

Q. What will the Aquarian Age mean to mankind…?

A. Think you this might be answered in a word? These are as growths. What meant that awareness as just indicated? In the Piscean Age, in the center of the same, we had the entrance of Emmanuel or God among men, see? What did that mean? The same will be meant by the full consciousness of the ability to communicate with or to be aware of the relationships to the Creative Forces and the uses of same in material environs. This awareness during the era or age in the age of Atlantis and Lemuria or Mu brought what? Destruction to man, and his beginning of the needs of the journey up through that of selfishness. (1602-3)

According to the Hopi myth:

Now in the Third World they multiplied in such numbers and advanced so rapidly that they created big cities, countries, a whole civilization. This made it difficult for them to conform to the plan of Creation and to sing praises to Taiowa and Sótuknang. More and more of them became wholly occupied with their own earthly plans…So many people were using their reproductive power in wicked ways…they began to use their creative power in another evil and destructive way…some of them made a pátuwvota [shield made of hide] and with their creative power made it fly through the air. On this many of the people flew to a big city, attacked it, and returned so fast no one knew where they came from…So corruption and war came to the Third World as it had to the others.

This time Sótuknang came to Spider Woman and said, “There is no use waiting until the thread runs out this time. Something has to be done lest the people with the song in their hearts are corrupted…you will save them when I destroy this world with water.” vii

When Edgar Cayce discussed the Indians of the American Southwest, there was no knowledge of mtDNA Haplogroup B. It would be decades before Frank Waters would publish the Book of Hopi. And the hypothesis of a trans-Pacific migration independent of a single overland migration from Siberia was, and to some extant still is considered preposterous. Considering that linguistic evidence regarding the divergence of the Uto-Aztecan language family, Edgar Cayce’s date for the sinking of Lemuria of 12,600 years ago is astonishing! (5750-1)

There is one very interesting disparity between the readings and the Hopi myth. The latter states the pole change caused the world to freeze over; and the former, the ice caused the pole shift. (5249-1)

American anthropologists have considered it impossible for people to have been in the Western Hemisphere prior to the opening of the hypothetical ice-free corridor after the last glacial maximum. Now, however, the fields of genetics and linguistics are challenging archaeologists to dig deeper; and along the way, they are confirming the Edgar Cayce readings, as well as the Hopi myths.
