Happy birthday, psychic Edgar Cayce

It is the birthday of psychic Edgar Cayce (1877), who was nicknamed “The Sleeping Prophet” because of his alleged life readings given when he was in hypnotic trances. He was the son of a poor Kentucky farmer and discovered his abilities when a hypnotist came to town when he was a boy. Cayce said he could see people’s auras and often described what was needed to cure sick people. He also answered questions on past and future events. During his lifetime, he was well known throughout the country through newspaper articles. Many books were written about Cayce, including Many Mansions: The Edgar Cayce Story on Reincarnation (1950), The Sleeping Prophet (1967), Edgar Cayce on Atlantis (1968), Edgar Cayce on the Dead Sea Scrolls (1970),
