Fascinating!! This book briefly covers readings given by Edgar Cayce--America's greatest psychic--on entities having previously existed in the lost land known as Atlantis.

According to Cayce, there were 2 phases that led to the destruction of Atlantis. The readings state that many of its inhabitants--being warned of the impending doom--emmigrated to Egypt, the Pyrenees (Portugal, Spain and France) as well as to the Yucatan/Central and Southern American continents. Cayce also believed that many A

I read a first edition (published mid sixties?) of this book,... many of the "speculations" surrounding this material are continually being verified or confirmed...Intuitively, most of us realize that what's taught in the history books at school is BS, and this is a whole new can of worms... Where did humanity come from and what are we doing here?! A question that all major religions tackle and that science tries to "rationalize" to the point of obliterating all possibility in favor of what's ac ...more

Any book on Atlantis, I feel I once lived there reading about it feels like I'm reading about home.

This book culls together various readings of past entities with incarnations of lives on Atlantis, which was not so much a place as an era in the foundation of humanity. The readings have references to Atlantean land and Poseida land. Mu, Oz, and Lemuria are mentioned in later Atlantean time.

It draws from those readings a picture of life with aircraft, submarines, electronics, and nuclear power. It is where/when spiritual beings first projected themselves into physical existence on this planet.

SOOO glad I read this just after reading Dr. Robert Schoch's _Forgotten Civilization_. I believe that they definitely work in conjunction; and Schoch's scientific findings back up the readings and information revealed by Edgar Cayce. I almost fell out of my seat when I read the part about the Sphinx being much older (as proven and theorized also by Schoch)! I also can see many similarities as to what was reportedly happening in Atlantis before extraordinary destruction(s), and how human history ...more

Well, the first book I've rated one star.

Why? In my view a book needs to be one or more of three things - entertaining, informative and interesting. This is none of those.

I came to it with an open mind - you kind of have to given the subject matter. It was always unlikely to be entertaining. I can't honestly say it was ever going to be so grounded in fact as to be informative.

But I did expect it to be interesting. It wasn't. Its not helped by the stilted language of Cayce's readings themselves,

There aren't enough words to describe Edgar's contribution to the human race. What he lived every day the rest of us can only dream of. Why modern history chooses to ignore Atlantis and all of the facts that point straight to it I will never understand.

I found this book to be a much quicker read than Many Mansions, which I had read several years ago. There were a few things I found intriguing in this book. His theory that we had originally been created by God as spiritual entities, and eventually found our way into material earthly bodies as humans evolved was very interesting- it was an angle I hadn't even considered before. As an atheist, the creation theory holds no water for me- but if there is/was a God, this spiritual theory makes much m ...more

Shelves: lemuria
In questo libro solo brevissimi accenni a Lemuria, ai figli di Belial e ai figli del'Uno e dei loro principi.
Informazioni ripetitive, prove a mio avviso insufficienti. Le previsioni di Cayce riguardano l'archeologia egizia, i terremoti negli Stati Uniti, la zona subacquea di Bimini.
Si tenta di spiegare l'origine delle Piramidi, in particolare della Sfinge di cui la data di costruzione secondo le visioni del medium sono molto più antiche delle date attestate dagli scienziati.
Sin dall'inizio del l

Me molesta que de dos o tres lecturas de Cayce y todo lo demás se sumerja en las vueltas que los investigadores dieron en Bimini o Egipto. Dice que hay 700 lecturas, pero nos pasea por todas las visiones que hubo primero de la Atlántida (que me las salteé porque las conozco y están hechas para adentrar a los neófitos), después por el esoterismo que también se interesó en eso. Finalmente habla un poco de Cayce (estimo que debe haber unas 30 lecturas como mucho) por el medio y tras eso nos llena d ...more

I can hardly stop myself to talk about Cayce's readings non-stilted. I feel always hungry for any piece of information that comes out of his clear readings. It is interesting but not for entertaining.
So many serious questions are replied among the lines. I think It is still not impossible but too much for today science to explain the life and reasons of what went on those ages by their soul secrets.

This book has greatly nourished my interests in Atlantis and Edgar Cayce. I loved reading Cayce's passages about the Atlanteans' migrations to Egypt, South America, and North America.

I appreciated the author mentioning the archaeological discoveries based on Cayce's readings. There is so much left to be discovered than mainstream history offers. I certainly hope there will be more evidence of Atlantis in the distant future.

Obviously, I'm a strong believer of this mythical land lol!

Freaky and very interesting. This is a compilation of all the readings Edgar Cayce did regarding Atlantis along with commentary by the author. Relevant additional information made publicly available is also included to "verify" the details of the readings.

There was plenty of historical information to make it interesting, I found the writing style of the book a bit difficult to follow.

Wow, great information. I would have liked to read exact quotes from Cayce, but the book was mostly explaining what Cayce said.

Little bit disappointed. Not as insightful as I was hoping but I did like the way some of it tied up with other people's research - Robert schoch's age of the sphinx for one.

Though parts of the book are a little dry, overall it is a very fascinating. Atlantis could have been the start of all the ancient civilizations.

We were never supposed to be physical beings- our material selves led to rampant materialism led to........the downfall of civilization. It happened once before and it will happen again.

Edgar Cayce on Atlantis spends far too much time trying to prove Atlantis existed, and far too little time on Edgar Cayce or his psychic readings.

Interesting ideas. Edgar Cayce had some eerie trance readings and this book puts them together into a surprisingly compelling argument for the existence of Atlantis.

The origins of life, in the metaphysical sense, began with the creation of the celestial beings. According to Edgar Cayce’s readings of the Akashic Record, first came the Son, the Logos, or the Word -- as indicated in John’s Gospel: “In the beginning was the Word; and the Word was with God and the Word was God.” Out of the Word or this central primordial expression of life, all else was created.
