Legendary psychic reborn — his look-alike also stuns folks with accurate predictions

by Rod Gibson

EDGAR CAYCE is alive and well according to a modern day psychic who claims to be the legendary Sleeping Prophet reincarnated. Cayce, who died in 1945, predicted that his spirit guide, Ra, would return around 1998. Meanwhile, David Wilcock, 33, was guided by his so-called "dream voice" to go to Virginia Beach, where the Edgar Cayce Foundation is located, in 1997. And along with author Wynn Free, Wilcock now makes the astounding claim that he is the famed seer reborn in the book The Reincarnation Of Edgar Cayce? (Frog, Ltd.) Amazing resemblance Free points out that Wilcock bears an amazing resemblance to Cayce and is also a psychic who has had many predictions come true, including a disaster resembling the World Trade Center destruction on 9/11, the dramatic drop of the stock market in 2002, the loss of NASA Mars probes, a Japanese nuclear meltdown in 2000 and the death of John F. Kennedy Jr. "The circumstances of his own life have led David Wilcock, often "dragged kicking and screaming, to the conclusion that he is the reincarnation of Edgar Cayce," says Free, who has extensively researched both Cayce and Wilcock. "He has drawn on information from his own psychic readings, impossibly precise astrological correspondences, dream memories of his life as Cayce and more.  And, of ourse, one cannot overlook the irrefutable physical resemblance." Wilcock first learned that he was Cayce’s reincarnation through his dream voice, which he labeled as RaTa, shortly after arriving in Virginia Beach to study at the Association for Research and Enlightenment founded by Cayce. "Never in a million years could I have imagined that I would be that person," Wilcock says. "On the one hand it was rather exciting, but on the other hand it felt like a death sentence. "I was no longer just David Wilcock. I was a reincarnated historical figure whose previous work was known and revered by millions of people worldwide. "Those were some very big shoes to fill." Cayce believed that he had a previous incarnation as an Egyptian high priest named RaTa in 10,500 B.C., and Wilcock says that entity became his dream voice. Free notes that Cayce and Wilcock share amazing astrological similarities as the positions of the sun, moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars were almost identical at the time of their births nearly 96 years apart; odds he puts at 250,000-to-1. But Wilcock refuses to take a simple test Cayce devised to verify anyone claiming to be his reincarnation because he believes that Cayce did not take the so- called "veil of forgetting" between lives into account. He adds that Cayce also failed to consult his own spirit guide about the test.
