Often Edgar Cayce’s readings recommended the subjects to spend more time in nature for both physical and emotional healing. Edgar Cayce emphasized the sync of the natural world with the Creative Forces (that some people call God).
The main Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E. website describes Edgar Cayce as the 20th Century Psychic and Medical Clairvoyant. His contemporaries in 1920-1940s often called him the “sleeping prophet” and later the “father of holistic medicine”. U.S. Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) aired a program Edgar Cayce: The Sleeping Psychic in the A&E Biographies category in 1997 (published on youtube at the link below).
Born and raised on a farm near Hopkinsville, Kentucky, Edgar Cayce all his life was a devout Christian. At a young age, he vowed to read the Holy Bible for every year of his life, and at the time of his death in 1945, he had accomplished this task. When he was asked how to become psychic, Edgar Cayce’s readings advised to become more spiritual.
The act of experiencing the great outdoors such as air, water, and earth helps us purify our minds and bodies and get closer to understanding of the nature and God as Cayce stated in the quote in the title of this post: …He who understands nature walks close with God. (Edgar Cayce reading 1904-2).
There is a great compilation of Edgar Cayce quotes on the topic of Nature in a post Why You Should Spend Time in Nature by Jennie E. Taylor on the A.R.E. website.
… Ever be a worker, as the bee, yes – but in that way in which it is ever a contribution to making thy portion of the earth a more beautiful place [to] live… (Edgar Cayce reading 3374-1).
The process of designing our own sustainable and beautiful homestead would certainly help us increase our spirituality and understanding of nature.
