Edgar Cayce’s more than fourteen thousand readings contain several that prophesy major physical changes to our planet. And many of these were not the suspected Halaliel readings that some feel may be inaccurate, because they were given around the time that Cayce lost his center, during the Great Depression, and his state of mind was not the best.
Among these so-called earth changes readings are predictions of temperature changes in the deep waters of our planet that will change weather patterns. We now call them El Niño and La Niña, and they have indeed caused serious shifts in the Earth’s winds and seas, serious weather changes. These readings also contain a prophesied earthquake under the sea in the Indian Ocean-likely the one we witnessed as the worst tsunami on record, killing coastal people from Indonesia to Africa.
The Japanese researcher Masaru Emoto, author of The Hidden Messages in Water, spoke at an A.R.E. conference recently, revealing how his research with water crystals shows the positive and negative influence of human words and thoughts on water. He said that he believes the waters of the world are reacting to human energy patterns, causing many of these disasters. Cayce would agree; his readings state that sunspots, which affect many of our communications systems, are caused more by human attitudes and emotions than cosmic forces.
Since Edgar Cayce stopped giving readings (August 1944) and passed over to the other realms of life (January 3, 1945), many significant Earth-changing events have occurred, as he predicted. Let’s take an updated look at recent disasters.
As of this writing, the most recent major disaster is the earthquake in China’s heavily populated Chengdu City, capital of Wenchan County, a high-tech region with much wealth and education. 90 million people live in this area, 9 million in the city. The intense quake was so powerful that it was felt as far away as Beijing, 943 miles to the northeast, and Thai, the capital of Bangkok, 1,118 miles south! It registered 7.8 on the Richter scale, which is the strongest quake in China in thirty years. Deaths are estimated to be in the tens of thousands. One school, holding 900 young students, collapsed, killing nearly all of those inside. Five nearby schools collapsed too, but reports were not available at the time of this writing.
More than 300 aftershocks were registered after the quake, and a Chinese seismologist warned residents in earthquake-affected areas in southwest China of more tremors, which could be just as devastating. “Wenchuan is prone to earthquakes as it is on a major fault line-the south-north fault line that runs from Yunnan to Ningxia,” said Zhang Guomin, a research fellow with the China Seismological Bureau.
Another recent disaster is the cyclone on May 6, 2008. U.S. Charge D’Affaires in Yangon (a city in former Burma), Shari Villarosa, said on a conference call, “The information we are receiving indicates over 100,000 deaths” from the cyclone. It ravaged the Irrawaddy delta in Myanmar (formerly known as Burma).
Prior to this cyclone, there was the tsunami that hit December 26, 2004, killing an estimated 283,000! Burma only lost 61 people in that tsunami. Indonesia lost the most people: 230,261. Sri Lanka lost 30,957, and India lost the third most: 16,413. Even the east coast of Africa lost 286 people to this massive wave of water.
The U.S. Geological Survey said the earthquake that caused the tsunami measured 9.0 on the Richter scale, making it the largest quake worldwide in four decades.
On May 7, 2008, a magnitude 6.8 earthquake off the Japanese coast rattled Tokyo City. A second quake hit in the same area about half an hour later with a magnitude of 5.3. Japan is one of the most earthquake-prone countries in the world, although Tokyo has not been hit with a major quake since the 1923 Great Kanto Earthquake, which killed 140,000 people. Japan sits on the junction of five tectonic plates and 80 active volcanoes!
The property damage caused by the 1995 earthquake in Kobe, Japan, reached $150 billion.
October 8, 2005, a magnitude 7.6 earthquake in Pakistan killed 40,000.
The most devastating earthquake following Cayce’s passing was the 1976 Tangshan magnitude 8 event in China, whose toll varies between the official 255,000 and the more probable 655,000!
Of course, the earthquake that struck the Chinese city of Shaanzi in 1556 was the deadliest in known history. No magnitudes were captured in those days, and of course no recordings exist, but it is said to have taken the lives of 830,000 people!
An earthquake was responsible for the deadliest landslide this century, which caused 40,000-50,000 deaths in western Iran on June 20, 1990.
A magnitude 7.8 earthquake at Mount Huascaran, Peru, on May 21, 1970, triggered a rock-and-snow avalanche that buried the towns of Yungay and Ranrahirca, killing perhaps as many as 20,000 people.
The most costly landslide in U.S. history was a relatively slow-moving event in Thistle, Utah, in the spring of 1983. The landslide was caused by the wet El Niño winter of 1982-83. Total losses were more than $400 million.
The largest earthquake this century was a magnitude 9.5 event that struck Chile on May 22, 1960. More than 2,000 people were killed in Chile, Hawaii, Japan, and the Philippines from this earthquake and the deadly tsunami that the quake created.
The most powerful quake in the U.S., and the second largest in the world this century, was a 9.2 temblor in Alaska, the Good Friday quake of 1964. The ensuing tsunami took 125 lives and caused about $310 million in property loss. The resulting tsunami wiped out an entire village in faraway Hawaii.
The eruption of Mount Pinatubo, Philippines, on June 15, 1991, blasted about 1 cubic mile of ash and rock into the atmosphere. Avalanches of hot ash, gas, and fragments of pumice roared down the mountainside, filling valleys with as much as 600 feet of volcanic debris! The deposits will retain much of their heat for decades; even 5 years later they were measured at 900° F. Close cooperation between the U.S.G.S. and the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology enabled the eruption to be forecast accurately, saving at least 5,000 lives.
The Nevado del Ruiz volcanic eruption in Colombia in 1985 ended the lives of 25,000 people, most of them caught in a massive mud flow that poured down the stricken mountain, inundating the city of Armero. By comparison, the Mount St. Helens eruption in 1980 shattered the peak and sent ash through the air for hundreds of miles, but had few fatalities.
Hurricane Katrina struck the U.S. Gulf Coast in August 2005; damage estimates from insurance costs alone were $30 billion! It was the most expensive disaster ever to hit the U.S., eclipsing Andrew in 1992, whose property damage was $25 billion.
The great Midwest flood of 1993 was the costliest flood in U.S. history, with estimated damages of $20 billion; however, only around 50 lives were lost.
Bangladesh and China have been devastated repeatedly by floods-Bangladesh lost 300,000 people in November 1970 and more than 130,000 in April 1991 from cyclone-induced flooding, and the massive flooding of the Yangtze River in China in 1931 caused more than 3 million deaths from flooding and subsequent starvation.
Our planet is actively changing. In one reading, Cayce stated that none of the physical devastation he predicted has to happen. The stability of the planet lies in humanity’s collective hands. Cayce also confirmed the biblical axiom that 10 good people can save an entire city. This brings to mind an old story told by the editor of Guideposts magazine. He received letters from two different women in a small town in California. Each told him how they were awakened in the dark hours of predawn and powerfully guided by Spirit to go out into the street of their little town and pray. They both did. Around 5 a.m. a powerful earthquake hit their town, destroying the entire downtown area, but not one person was killed or even injured. These two ladies did not know each other, living on opposite corners of the town. In this case the prayers of two save a town.
Rather than get anxious over the world situation and sound-bite political leaders, prayer is a powerful service we can perform for our fellow planet dwellers. Our prayers ascend into the Collective Consciousness and subliminally affect the whole of human consciousness and Nature’s sensitive vibrations.
Prayer time is also a wonderful sanctuary from the world’s weight. In this inner space of contacting God with love and caring for others, we can find a refuge for our often weary hearts and minds.
Cayce advises, “Why worry when you can pray? He [God] is the Whole, you are a part. Coordinate your abilities with the Whole.” (2528-2)
