Edgar Cayce and Amelia Earhart

Just a follow-up tidbit on my previous post about Amelia Earhart, the courageous aviatrix who went missing on July 2, 1937, while attempting to circumnavigate the globe:

I'm sure many of you have heard of Edgar Cayce. For those of you who are uncertain, he was an American psychic and healer, born in 1877; died in 1945. Dubbed "The Sleeping Prophet" by Jess Stearn in his book by the same name, Cayce apparently had an uncanny ability to answer questions about health and other personal problems while in a hypnotic trance.

From The Dictionary of American Religious Biography by Henry Warner Bowden (1993):

      "As a humble individual full of self-doubts, Cayce never profited from his mystic gift. He read the Bible every day, taught Sunday School, and helped others only when asked. Many did ask, and over the years he produced readings that diagnosed health problems, prescribed dietary regimens, dealt with psychic disorders, and predicted future events such as wars, earthquakes, and changes in governments. He spoke, moreover, of reincarnations, the early history of Israel, and the lost civilization of Atlantis. Enough of his diagnoses and predictions proved true to silence many skeptics and to develop a wide following."

He's a fascinating individual, whether you accept his psychic abilities or not.

On July 5, 1937 (three days after Amelia Earhart and her navigator, Fred Noonan went missing), Edgar Cayce was called upon to find Earhart. The results of Cayce's two readings were quite interesting and another facet of the intriguing mystery surrounding Earhart's disappearance.

I came across this story at the Edgar Cayce Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.) site. To read it for yourself, go the site or follow this link: http://www.edgarcayce.org/are/ancient_mysteries.aspx?id=2403. The article is titled Did Famed Psychic Edgar Cayce Once Locate Amelia Earhart?

Happy Hauntings,
