Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E. and Atlantic University have been leaders in transpersonal education since the founding of our organizations in the early 1930s. Internationally recognized as a trusted source for high-quality, in-depth, and experiential training, our top-rated, award-winning, peer- and academically recognized instructors merge the latest in theoretical research and clinical experience with the body-mind-spirit wisdom found in the Edgar Cayce readings to create programs and educational tracks that nurture students, conferees, therapists, and clients.
Edgar Cayce himself recommended hypnosis as a tool for healing and transformation. Cayce’s psychic discourses are rooted in hypnotism as Cayce discovered that his self-induced trance state put him in touch with a universal consciousness that enabled him to bring forth the wisdom that is now found in his readings. The readings themselves advised that “the study of self…may best be done by suggestive forces to the body through hypnosis.”
Over the centuries, hypnosis has proven itself as a valuable therapeutic tool. Since its 1958 endorsement by the American Medical Association (AMA), there has been tremendous growth in its methods, applications, and acceptance. It is widely used by psychologists, therapists, and spiritual seekers as a safe and effective way to change unwanted habits, reduce stress, heal past traumas, create wellnEdgar Cayce Readings Advice On Personal Spirituality, Meditation, and Prayer
The Edgar Cayce readings emphasize the spiritual nature of humankind. However, because of the demands of life we frequently overlook the truest part of ourselves, which is our connection to spirit. Although we possess physical bodies and mental attitudes, ultimately our deepest connection is to our spiritual source.
One of the most frequently mentioned concepts in the Edgar Cayce material is that Spirit is the Life, Mind is the Builder, and the Physical is the Result. In other words, spirit is the source of all life. The mind focuses that energy into creative (positive) or destructive (negative) avenues of expression. The impact of our choices will eventually find expression in the physical, affecting ourselves and our relationships with one another.
Because of the importance of working with spiritual principles in everyday life, in 1931 the Edgar Cayce readings began outlining a series of lessons on spiritual growth that are still being studied by individuals around the world from all walks of life and religious backgrounds. Today, the A.R.E. Spiritual Growth Activities/Search for God department stays in contact with hundreds of groups working with these lessons on personal spiritual growth.
In order to become more attuned to our spiritual source, for decades the Cayce readings emphasized the importance of meditation. Cayce believed that meditation was listening to God, while prayer was talking. The same year that the original Search for God program was started, Edgar Cayce began the Glad Helpers Healing Prayer Group, which is still active. Today, A.R.E. maintains an active Prayer Services department, offering individuals the opportunity to pray or to be prayed for.ess, and even to explore potential past lives.
