For more than forty years, Edgar Cayce (1877 1945), the sleeping prophet, regularly exhibited an astonishing psychic ability. From an altered state, he was able to read minds and souls, diagnose thousands of illnesses, successfully prescribe remedies, see into the past and the future and tap into a source of universal knowledge where such information resides a source Cayce said is available to us all. For anyone who has heard of Edgar Cayce - and his name is familiar to millions - here is a concise, reliable, immensely readable introduction to his life, work and message. In EDGAR CAYCE'S ESP, his story is told by writer Kevin Todeschi, an authority on Cayce's work and the director of the popular educational organisation that Cayce founded, the Association for Research and Enlightenment. Drawing upon more than 14,000 case histories and readings, Todeschi presents a wealth of proof of Cayce's psychic abilities and the effects they had on the lives of his contemporaries. Todeschi focuses especially on the character of the modest, generous Cayce himself, a man who started out in life as a sensitive. Bible-reading Kentucky farm boy and who grew up to become an unlikely prophet of the New Age and one of the most famous psychics in history.
