Are the Edgar Cayce Prophecies coming true?

There seems to be a definite upswing in the level of seismic activity in the Mediterranean belt in the last decade. On 12th May, 2011 Spain was rocked by its worst earthquake in 50 years. More than 20,000 buildings are believed to have been damaged in the historic town of Lorca, with a population of around 90,000.  On April 1, 2011, a strong earthquake of magnitude 6.2 had struck the southern Greek island of Crete, rattling buildings as far away as Egypt and Turkey. Since 1998, there have been more than 11 earthquakes in Greece which have measured more than 6.0 on the Richter scale, although not all of them caused damage. This is substantially more than the number of earthquakes in previous decades.

In fact, from 1997 onwards, the level of earthquakes has really increased all over the globe. For instance, between 1986 and 1996 (inclusive), over a period of 11 years, there were 15 earthquakes listed by USGS having magnitude of 7.0 or greater. But between 1997 and 2007 (inclusive), over a period of 11 years, there have been 99 earthquakes with magnitude 7.0 or greater. This is more than a six-fold increase over the previous period. By limiting the statistic to earthquakes above 7.0, we can ensure that the increase in the number of earthquakes over this period cannot be attributed to a corresponding increase in the number of seismograph stations across the world, since such high intensity earthquakes above 7.0 could have been easily detected by a lower number of seismograph stations.

This conforms to our general belief that the earthquake numbers and intensities have really picked up from 1997 onwards. The most obvious increase, and the most damaging impact, has been in the countries in the Pacific belt – ‘the ring of fire’. The most devastating of these quakes were the Indian Ocean tsunami of 2004, the catastrophic Haiti earthquake of 2010, multiple earthquakes in New Zealand, and finally the terrible tsunami in Japan in March 2011. There have been many more earthquakes of a smaller magnitude that have plagued the island nations of the Pacific over the past decade.

To someone who is aware of the Edgar Cayce prophecies, it all sounds hauntingly familiar. Are his prophecies coming true?

The great American psychic Edward Cayce (1877-1945) was affectionately referred to as the ‘sleeping prophet’. For more than 40 years, Cayce used to slip into an unconscious state and give psychic readings to thousands of seekers, diagnosing illnesses and revealing lives lived in the past, and making prophecies yet to come, all with an incredible accuracy. Cayce had the ability to put himself into a sleep-like unconscious state, by lying down on a couch, closing his eyes, and folding his hands over his stomach. He could then respond to a wide array of questions. He is the most documented psychic of the 20th century and his psychic readings continue to benefit millions of people today.

Fig 1: Edgar Cayce,(1877-1945)
In Reading 1602-3, Cayce mentions that the earth changes will start manifesting in the years around 1998, and that it will be a gradual process. "In 1998 we may find a great deal of the activities as have been wrought by the gradual changes that are coming about. These are at the periods when the cycle of the solar activity, or the years as related to the sun's passage through the various spheres of activity become the change between the Piscean and the Aquarian age. This is a gradual, not a cataclysmic activity in the experience of the Earth in this period."

Cayce also provides certain signs which will tell us that we are entering the period of earth changes. In Reading 311-8 19, when he was asked, “How soon will the changes in the earth's activity begin to be apparent?” he responded by saying, “When there is the first breaking up of some conditions in the South Sea, and those as apparent in the sinking or rising of that that's almost opposite same, or in the Mediterranean, and the Aetna area, then we may know it has begun.”

Cayce is, therefore, clearly referring to an increase in the level of seismic activity in the Pacific and Mediterranean belt, starting from the years around 1998. This is exactly what we seem to be witnessing now. In the Mediterranean regions, in addition to the recent upswing in seismic activity, there have also been significant upheavals in the political and social sphere in the countries such as Egypt, Tunisia, Libya and Syria all of which are bordering the Mediterranean Sea.

Fig 2: Map of the Mediterranean countries
Are these the prophetic signs of the impending period of earth changes that were predicted by Edgar Cayce? If so, his predictions for the future are even dire. Cayce mentions that from ’58 to ’98, major earth changes will begin take place. This possibly refers to the period from 2058 to 2098, since the period of change begins in 1998.

In Reading 3976-15, he says:

"The earth will be broken up in the western portion of America.  The greater portion of Japan must go into the sea.  The upper portion of Europe will be changed as in the twinkling of an eye.  Land will appear off the east coast of America.  There will be the upheavals in the Arctic and in the Antarctic that will make for the eruption of volcanoes in the Torrid areas, and there will be shifting then of the poles - so that where there has been those of a frigid or the semi-tropical will become the more tropical, and moss and fern will grow.  And these will begin in those periods in '58 to '98, when these will be proclaimed as the periods when His light will be seen again in the clouds.  As to times, as to seasons, as to places, ALONE is it given to those who have named the name - and who bear the mark of those of His calling and His election in their bodies.  To them it shall be given."

Clearly, Cayce is prophesizing about epochal changes in the second half of this century, during the period after 2058. He talks about this period as the time when ‘His light will be seen again in the clouds’. This seems to indicate a transition to a new era, a new Yuga of enlightenment, as has been prophesized by various spiritual and religious adepts from around the world. Therefore, the current upswing in the seismic activity is only the beginning of this process of change, which will possibly culminate in cataclysmic changes that humanity has not witnessed in the past 5000 years of recorded history. Will Cayce be proven right yet again?  


  1. I searched the internet for this. I, too believe that the period of 2058 is the year that which a pole shift will occur. But until then we will see many great changes that will lead to the major shift. We have less than 50 years, now. It will only keep going on that the earth will cleanse people and animals out, until she is ready to make a complete shift and start anew!

  2. Does this also coincide with the end of Yuga cycle?

  3. @Teja: It does appear to coincide with the end of the Yuga Cycle as well. Once you recognize that the Yuga Cycle duration is actually of 12,000 years duration (and not 12,000*360 years), then we are pretty close to the end of the Kali Yuga as well. I will be writing an article on this pretty soon.
    Another point to note is that, since I wrote this article last year, there have been a number of eruptions of Mount Etna in Italy. This is exactly what Cayce had predicted i.e. "the sinking or rising in the Aetna area."

  4. Thanks for clarifying this. You are doing an amazing work!! It is really fascinating to know how much our culture has to offer.

  5. What I have learned:

    1) The Harmonic Convergence, which occurred in 1987, changed the future of the Earth and softened the predicted catastrophes

    2) As part of the divine plan, the Earth will still shift to a higher dimension

    3) between now and the actual shifting (2012-2032???)the world is going to face a lot of turmoil. Old institutions will fall, there will be weather changes, etc.. However, the shared hardhip will bring us together.

    4) If you understand that we are spirit and have many lives, there is nothing to fear. So in each day, choose love over fear.

  6. Thanks for sharing your understanding. Here are some of my own feelings:

    1. The period of major change will be from 2012-2036, when the existing material structures will collapse. At the same time many elements of higher wisdom and greater truths will be revealed to us.

    2. I have mentioned in a separate article that the Kali Yuga appears to be ending in 2025. If so, the pace of earth changes change will pick up after 2025.

    3. The earth changes that Cayce had mentioned may also take place from 2058-2098.

    4. This is a normal process of change that takes place at the end of every yuga, just like the change in weather patterns at the end of a season. Hence, there is nothing to be afraid of, but we should be aware that a change is underway.

  7. Bhibhu do u have an idea how can we save ourselves from such a huge catastrophe.

    1. These predictions are for events that may happen 45 years down the line. I think its too early to start worrying about them. Besides, all the predictions may not necessarily come true.
      What seems to be apparent, however, is that we are entering into a period of transition, and there may be large scale environmental/social/cosmic changes. It impossible to tell beforehand how these changes will play out.The changes will unfold according to a Divine Plan, and I have no idea what that plan is.
      In my opinion, since we are transitioning to a new yuga of enhanced consciousness, it is best to try and align our lives with the emerging paradigm - by letting go of our obsession with materialistic pursuits, and focus on cultivating knowledge, wisdom, compassion, selfless service etc. By restoring the balance in our own lives,we will be best placed deal with what may happen later.

  8. Hi Bibhu, one clear sign (or at least, clear to me) is the "fubar" state of the financial and political institutions. See how their corruption has spread and is still spreading at an accelerated pace ? Such momentum only means one thing: hard collapse. That's why I think it is "fubar". Another troublesome sign: the solar activity is at its lowest nowadays, an observation that goes against most predictions based on previous decades. Significant weather changes will be experienced as a consequence. So my general feeling is that we are experiencing the unfolding of some shift at a planetary, or even cosmic scale, that affect all human activities and more. And the funny thing is since I was a kid, I always felt that such changes would happen in my lifetime ... I am not mystical or religious, I am just expressing a feeling which seems to be confirmed by diverse observations.


    PS: keep up the great blog! it is fascinating :)

    1. Hi, thanks for your observations and words of appreciation. I agree that the spiraling levels of corruption across all levels of politics, government and corporations, bereft of any feeling of guilt or remorse, indicates that we are heading towards a collapse. We seem to have been overtaken by a greed that is unquenchable, anger and hatred beyond all bounds of civility, and a gross disregard for our inner spirit. Funnily enough, the yuga cycle doctrine tells us that this kind of madness sets in towards the end of a yuga. Of course, we still do not understand what brings about these cyclical changes in human consciousness. The Sun, as the primary giver of light and energy, most certainly has an important role to play in all this. But we certainly seem to be entering a period of transition - the signs are all over the place.

  9. Hi Bibhu,
    Thanks for enlightening us through your weblog and research (accompanied with logical & factual references). I have a question for you. What about the prophecy of "Kalki Avatar", the last incarnation of Lord Vishnu. Lord Kalki is believed to incarnate during the last stages of Kaliyuga when 1000-800 yrs will remain this yuga to end. His arrival prediction has been done in several Hindu Mythological books. Please let me know if you have any inputs to share on this.

    1. Hello Lokesh,
      The topic of Kalki Avatar has come up a few times in the discussions section of my article on the "End of the Kali Yuga in 2025". You can refer to those discussions for more details. In general the Avatar always appears at the "conjuction" or "transitional period" between two yugas. In that respect, we may expect the Kalki Avatar to appear sometime after 2025 (assuming my calculation of the end date is correct)
      The 300 year transitional period following 2025 can be broken up into two parts of 150 years each. The first 150 years is the "twilight of Kali" when the social and material constructs of the kali yuga shall collapse. It is during this period that the Avatar might appear, to ring in the close of the yuga, and to raise the collective consciousness to very high levels.
      The next 150 years of the transitional period is the "dawn of Dwapara" when the systems, philosophies and laws and structures of the new yuga will begin to take shape. This is the period when we may expect the Saptarshis to return to the earthly plane once again to promulgate the laws of civilization.
      There are a number of Sankrit texts where the Kalki Avatar has been described as a comet. I tend to think, therefore, that Kalki may not be a mortal, but may appear as a comet. Kalki and his band of sword-weilding horseback warriors may be a reference to an incursion of a "swarm of comets" into the inner solar system which could bring about the collapse of the kali yuga.

  10. Dear Mr. Bibhu Dev
    Why don't you use any reference from Islam where it is clarified that there will be the age of Keyamat (Last days). After Keyamat there will be no more creation?? as per Islam.

    1. The concept of the "end times" is present in the doctrines and traditions of many ancient cultures. I am primarily interested those doctrines/prophecies which give us a calendar or a realistic timeline for the end of the age.
      I do not subscribe to the idea that "there will be no more creation" after the end of this age. As per the Hindu tradition, the end of each yuga is followed by the next one in the ascending or descending cycle. I have written about it in detail in the article on the Yuga Cycle.

    2. So you mean as per Islam, after Keyamat there will be NO Islam?

  11. Hello,

    In the Apocalypse of St. John, the same signs are mentioned (not with dates) and it says, the signs will be there to be seen but noone will care to see! The people, i think, have gone blind these days, they only care about profit, their own interests, their fancy outlooks and whatever is materialistically more dear to them. I say that our greatest enemy is our own ignorance and our own ego. And i will close with a saying of a person i don't remember his/her name that quotes: "No people are really free until they become the instrument of their own liberation. Freedom is not legacy that is bequeathed from one generation to another. Each generation must take and maintain its freedom with its own hands".

    Keep up the good work you're doing! And hopefully the planetary vibration in our bodies someday be awakened to ensure our "life-power and mind-power can create another destiny", as Sri Aurobindo says.

    In Lak'ech Ala K'in


    1. Hello Adam,
      Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I can relate to what you are saying. The human ego - with its greed, ignorance, fear etc. - prevents us from reaching a state of greater awareness. In the final stages of the Kali Yuga the egoic attributes are accentuated. But there is hope in the horizon, the light of the new dawn is around the corner. We will certainly experience some massive shifts in our own lifetime.

  12. Nostradamus in his codes predicts 92 Years of peace between the Second World War and the third world war. Hence we arrive at the Year 2037 which ushers in catastrophic changes. The comet ( Jan 2037) and asteroid ( June 2040) according to the Book of Revelations would destroy one third of the land and one third of the sea respectively submerging countries like Britain, Japan, South Africa, Singapore, parts of USA ( San Francisco) and ancient civilizations. After the 3 1/2 Years of peace war will breakout in 2041. India will be occupied by China. China and Russia will annex and occupy USA. Europe will be devastated by the Islamic invaders lead by the Mahdi of Greater Arabia who sports a blue turban launching nuclear weapons on it. The war would see 200 million soldiers kill 3 billion people. Read for Hindu prophecies which mentions Kalki (Sree Veerabhoga Vasantharaya born in 1965-66 ) will restore law and order and usher in 1000 Years of peace from 2064 onwards.
