Edgar Cayce Shares a Miracle

"Edgar Cayce: My Life as a Seer", page 130 reads:

‘One afternoon when I had been praying practically all day, and it had been raining steadily---it was very necessary for some finances to come from somewhere in order to meet my daily needs---I heard someone coming up the steps to the studio, which was on the second floor. I wondered, “Could this be an answer to my prayer?”’

The someone had come in to the studio seemingly from out of the blue needing for studio works on her boy’s faded picture and paid, tiding Cayce over with his financial needs: ‘She paid me for her picture, which enabled me to take care of my obligations for the moment.’

As I read along, I wondered in the same manner could a miracle come of the prayer, which I had been recently praying for a friend? The thought was set aside as I went about attending to other chores for the day.

In the afternoon, while talking with the friend about miscellany, I was presented with a most pleasant surprise. She mentioned her plans about seeking spiritual advice. For someone who can be considered proud and stubborn from an objective observer’s point of view, this is a major development. She has realized her need to listen to a different perspective other than her own that she has habituated to.

Cayce shared me his miracle. My prayer for my friend was almost immediately answered. The prayer goes, “Lord, please liberate my friend’s mind from the ‘negative’ patterns it has habituated into.”

I told my friend how touched I am that she mentioned of her plan. This is the answer to my prayer, my miracle, which Cayce for his having shared his miracle seemed to have triggered.

Could This Event Be Related?

Sunday mass gospel was about Zaccheus. I seemed to identify myself with him, as the gospel was being read, for what I perceive are the imperfections in my worship of Jesus, the Son of God. For having this imperfections, I guess I find it hard to believe that answers to prayers regarding difficult problems will be answered.

‘Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham. For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.”’ – Luke 19:9-10

Exploring the metaphor in the verse further, I believe that not only am I represented as Zaccheus in the gospel, but my friend as well.

With that verse then seems to come a promise to answer my prayer for my friend.

And as written above, the promise came to be fulfilled on the same day, giving me the privilege of, through this article, sharing a miracle as well.

Ask and You Shall Receive

Prayer is the preliminary to the miracle. We can ask in prayer even if our worship is imperfect. Likened to a vast ocean, God’s infinite mercy suffices to compensate for our lack and imperfections. And with his mercy, he answers our prayers with miracles undeserved, causing our faith in His Divine Providence to scale new heights.

On Two Counts

As this point, you may have noted that Edgar Cayce shared the miracle on two counts: first, by his having written (e.g. “share one’s experience” in telling or writing about it) his memoir and second, by somehow having triggered God’s grace needed for me to experience my own miracle.

My inquisitive mind then wonders, is there a pattern there?

Does sharing one’s experience of miracles cause others to experience their own?

This has been clearly answered for me.

It is up to each one of us to see for ourselves and discover our own Truth.

Great hub and truly a miracle in its own.

When God does something I believe its good to share as it strengthens the faith for others.

However and this is irrelevant to your hub, but wasn't Cayce found out to be some kind of fake, false prophet. I may be wrong.

I believe he did have some spiritual gift and praying does bring miracles but on the other side, didnt his predictions prove to be wrong.

Like I said I could be wrong.

Thanks

Thanks for the sincerity of your comment and sharing a profound insight about miracles and faith, Laurie.

If the treatment that he prescribed through his physical readings to innumerable individuals who recovered from illness can be considered predictions, the reliability of his predictions may be shown to be very high, I think. Through the memoir book I realized that what happened during his lifetime was he happened to be called upon to help usually without prior history of the patient, where doctors of traditional medicine could go no further in alleviating the patients’ condition.

If interested regarding non-physical readings/predictions, here is a link to the webpage containing his predictions that have come true: http://www.edgarcayce.org/are/ancient_mysteries.as... .

I read somewhere a different angle regarding the reliability of a prediction and the credibility of the seer: these increase if the prediction does not come to pass, such as in cases where tragedy is predicted after preventive measures are taken heeding the seer’s warning.

The Memoir book mentioned that he was unable to convince himself of his own authenticity. He was always in a constant struggle between doubt and faith. Cayce himself welcomed investigators to prove him a fake so he could have reason to stop using his talent to assist others. The treatment he prescribed very rarely failed. He came to the conclusion that neither was he himself in a position to judge the authenticity of his works and somewhat admonished himself to let those who seek help or have been helped judge for themselves.

To be honest, I have no information regarding how a seer is proven to be definitively authentic or fake. In Cayce’s case, I can only speak of my own experience. His having shared his miracle has somehow made my relationship to Jesus come alive.

I would like to add here that Cayce said anyone could do what he did. Didn't Jesus say that there would be those after me who would do greater works because he went unto the Father?

Cayce was a humble and honest man. He never charged for any of his readings, rather, relied on donations for to support his frugal lifestyle. Those who followed the instructions of his readings always received solutions to their problems, whether physical, emotional, or spiritual.

Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to share further insights, Marie. I appreciate your calling attention to Jesus’ statement about everyone having the potential to do even greater works. I believe that would be possible, given enough faith in God (e.g., even as minute as a mustard seed) and belief in oneself.

Due to advanced technology and information explosion, so many of our interactions have become globalized. Our actions have come to affect each other more and more. Through online communities and social media, we indeed have been empowered to do probably the greater works Jesus has referred to. And a lot of these can go into inspiring each other by calling attention to the noble traits of those in our midst. It thus develops the snowball effect of providing noble thoughts spurring noble actions influencing those around to noble thoughts and further noble actions, and so on and so forth.

Faith in God and belief in one’s self are thus not hard to come by being witnesses to others’ and our own noble actions.
