A MESSAGE FROM EDGAR CAYCE’S A.R.E.
Dear Members, Friends, and Cayce Enthusiasts:
Headlines of the Coronavirus have prompted individuals around the world to become afraid. Perhaps the main reason is that most of the news is about the problem, leaving us to feel helpless about whether there is anything we can really do as individuals to help address the situation. The Edgar Cayce material would say, “YES, there is a great deal we can do.”
Daily, for 43 years of his adult life, Edgar Cayce gave individuals helpful tools enabling them to improve their lives physically, mentally and spiritually. Although it is true that he did not live through the Coronavirus, he did live through the Spanish Flu of 1918, both World Wars, and the Great Depression. Each of these were global events that caused individuals to become afraid and seek help.
In terms of Health, the Cayce readings suggest that plenty of sleep, plenty of water, relaxation, and a healthy diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables can all bolster the alkalinity of the body and an individual’s immune system. In fact, in one reading he stated, “if an alkalinity is maintained in the system — especially with lettuce, carrots and celery, these in the blood supply will maintain such a condition as to immunize a person.” (480-19) Obviously, one of the best things we can do right now is to wash our hands, often and thoroughly. Dr. Jo Adamson, Medical Director at the A.R.E., recently shared Precautions Against COVID 19 in our blog. For additional insights from the Cayce readings, visit our Health & Wellness section.
In terms of our mind and spirit, the Edgar Cayce material recommends the use of positive affirmations, prayer and meditation. When individuals were afraid, Cayce often responded with, “Why worry when you can pray?” Unfortunately, most people perceive prayer as asking God for things. Instead, it is more like inviting the energy of spirit and the Creator to come into the situation and work through us. Cayce would suggest that if we truly are spiritual beings having a physical experience, the prayers of countless individuals praying for the dissipation of the Coronavirus and the healing of the planet will definitely have an energetic and vibrational impact. Working with affirmations can be as simple as slowly and repeatedly saying words like, “I am at peace,” while breathing in calmness and light and breathing out anxiety and fear. If you feel like fear has become a problem in your life right now, we are offering you this FREE digital book (PDF), Edgar Cayce on Overcoming Fear and Anxiety, by Hugh Lynn Cayce.
Edgar Cayce would also recommend meditation to help calm your mind and center your spiritual self. It is hard to deal with so many of life’s events when we find ourselves incapable of putting our best self in the situation. Meditation can help do just that. TO get you started, M.E. Hart shares his Spirit is the Spark meditation.
It is true that the Coronavirus is impacting many individuals around the world. It is also impacting organizations like ours. Out of an abundance of caution, we have cancelled or postponed many conferences and tours, severely affecting our operational income in the process. At the same time, we are working to create online programs and lectures that give individuals more of the helpful concepts contained in the Edgar Cayce material without having to leave home. And if you would like to offer a donation to help minimize the financial impact to the A.R.E., you can do so here: Donate to Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E.
Although it is a time to be concerned and take measures to keep you and your family as healthy as possible, it is not a time to fear.
Please know that Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E. is here to help, however we can.
Sincerely, Kevin J. Todeschi, MA Executive Director & CEO
