Edgar Cayce said that “psychic is of the soul”.[1] I understand this to mean that as one develops spiritually, so does one’s ability to receive information in a form that is commonly referred to as “psychic”, due to the individual’s attunement with the universal or divine forces, or God. When people asked Cayce what they could do to develop their intuitive or psychic abilities, he advised them to seek rather, the development of the soul in accordance with their ideal.[2] Then, according to my understanding of the Cayce information, so called psychic or intuitive abilities would be one of the fruits of such development. I have certainly found this to be true in my case. While I have had psychic occurrences since I was a child, my abilities began to expand and further develop when I became committed to my ideal, The Christ. Even when I did not realize at the time what was happening, it occurred nevertheless.

One of my earliest memories of this nature happened when I was sixteen or seventeen years old. I had bad experiences with boyfriends and as I looked around me, I saw many other females, young and old, making lifelong mistakes in selecting a mate. I did not want to become one of them. I started a prayer that lasted until I married. Specifically, I prayed that God would not let me select my mate, but that he would select him for me. I honestly confessed that I was not asking God to select my boyfriends, because I knew I would interfere and not let God do so. However, I pleaded that God NOT let me pick my husband. It never occurred to me that there was any inconsistency in this approach. I did not know how it would happen, but I was confident that God would do what I had earnestly requested of Him. He did. (Cayce talked about exercising free will and how we needed to exercise the will in accordance with our ideal.) My husband was first, my friend. It never occurred to me that we would be anything more than friends because of different racial and ethnic backgrounds. When it looked like things were going to get serious, I asked God if he was sure. I voiced my concerns about the impossibilities and the voice in side told me to wait, and that things would be very easy. I did and they were. My husband and I have been together for over thirty years. During the time we were dating, as a few obstacles appeared, I was guided, internally, as to the manner in which I should handle the situations. To use an expression that Edgar Cayce used, the “stumbling blocks” became “stepping stones”. I am very grateful for the time I have had with my husband and hope that God has in store for us many more years together.

Of note is what occurred when my husband and I had been married for about 5 years. We decided it was time to try for a child. I prayed for a child that would help our family to be a strong family unit. After trying for two years, I became pregnant and then had a miscarriage. I had been dreaming that there were two babies in pink (girls), but I would only be given one baby. We did not know I was having twins until the miscarriage. Although I was really sad, the voice inside still said that I would have a child. My eldest son was born approximately one year to the day my first child was supposed to be born. My eldest son is now 20 years old  at this writing, and everything we do as a family becomes a “family tradition”. Many times he acts as though he is in charge of the family and insists on those things he thinks are important for us to do as a unit. Changes with him have to be handled very carefully. (I have learned to be more careful for what I ask.)

The more I attuned myself to God and the Christ ideal, as a professional in my career and as a mother and wife in my personal life, the stronger my abilities became. I asked in my prayers and meditations for help in handling my various duties and demands in these very important roles that I played. I was concerned about my many hours at work and away from the family; yet, I felt guided to be where I was professionally at the time. There have been many instances when while working, I would receive intuitive information about either of my sons or my husband, and I would know whether I needed to go home or make a phone call. I also received many dreams that would prepare me for what was coming or that would alert me to something that I needed to be mindful of, like my husband’s health for example. Among my accurate dreams were a warning that my eldest son, less than a year old at the time, would be in a car accident with the nanny but would be okay, that my husband was about to be ill, and that my husband needed to look for another job because of what was happening at his current job at the time. My children knew that they could contact me telepathically if they could not get me by phone for some reason, and never hesitated to use this method, which always worked. In short, the more I attuned myself for the purposes in accordance with my ideal, the more timely assistance I received. I cannot imagine handling all the demands I had without this valuable assistance.
