On Reincarnation, Mediumship and Channeling

Edgar Cayce on Reincarnation by Noel Langley"Often I have fallen far short in presenting myself as a living sacrifice for whatever source might manifest through me. In that sense, I suppose I may be called a medium.  But I hope I may be, rather, a channel through which blessings may come to many, rather than a medium through which any force might manifest. For if it is of God, it must be good. Or, if it is good, it must come from the All-Good, or God. This good, I trust, is the type of psychic phenomena manifesting through me."  ~ Edgar Cayce on Reincarnation

I've been reading Edgar Cayce's book on reincarnation and I agree with the passage above.  I find that through channeling I can be of greater service than through mediumship, but I didn't exactly know why until now. I did realize that by offering soul readings (ie. channeling) that I was providing guidance and insight rather than 'proving' the existence of life after death.  Don't get me wrong, I do find mediumship to be absolutely amazing and helpful, but a mediumship reading tends to be either 'right or wrong' in the eyes of the receiver (the client) especially the way I work, in that I ask the client to provide me with the first name of the ancestor they want me to connect with. As a medium, I either connect with their ancestor or I don't whereas with a soul reading, any information that comes through can be of benefit - does that make any sense?

I also feel connected with Edgar Cayce because my paternal grandmother, Ethel went to see him. I'm not sure she was successful in getting a reading from him, but she did visit his Institute, the A.R.E. in Virginia Beach and I'm sure she read his many books.

Edgar Cayce ClairvoyantAbout Edgar Cayce: "The "sleeping" Edgar Cayce was a psychic known to thousands of people, in all walks of life, who had cause to be grateful for his help.  Even as a child, on a farm near Hopkinsville, Kentucky, where he was born on March 18, 1877, Edgar Cayce displayed powers of perception which seemed to extend beyond the normal range of the five senses.  At the age of six or seven he told he parents that he was able to see and talk to "visions," sometimes of relatives who had recently died. His parents attributed this to the overactive imagination of a lonely child who had been influenced by the dramatic language of the revival meetings which were popular in that section of the country.  Later, by sleeping with his head on his schoolbooks, he developed some form of photographic memory which helped him advance rapidly in the country school.

When Edgar Cayce died on January 3, 1945, in Virginia Beach, Virginia, he left well over 14,000 documented stenographic records of the telepathic-clairvoyant statements he had given for more than six thousand different people over a period of forty-three years. These documents are referred to as "Readings." ~ excerpted from "Edgar Cayce on Reincarnation: Strange, psychic accounts of people who have lived more than once. From the files of America's most amazing clairvoyant by Noel Langley, under the editorship of Hugh Lynn Cayce.

Rachelle's Testimonial

I'm just floored.  It's wonderful!  It's everything I knew I needed but didn't know how to accept...if that makes any sense? haha!  I think I've already read it a dozen times.  There is so much there that really fits.

Finally, I just wanted to tell you again how happy I was with my reading.  I'm not sure what I expected but I was just amazed at how much it resonated with me.  There were parts that I almost found myself laughing at because the message was one I've been hearing for so long from so many different places.  You'd think I'd get the hint.  ;-)  But honestly, it was astounding to me...so consistent!  I think the two main points that really hit home for me were "In stillness your truth will come to you" and "Be good to yourself/cut yourself some slack".  So much easier said than done for me.  Seeing those messages laid out in this format really did seem to drive them home in a different way.  I feel very blessed to have received such a great reading and such valuable insights.  Thank you for choosing to follow this path and put yourself out there.  This work you do is so helpful and refreshing.  :-)

Sample of a Past Life Reading

*Reprinted with kind permission from my client.

I will begin your past life reading by taking a look at several of your past lives based upon a psychic/soul reading of your past life energy.

- The first vision I get is of you as a little girl on a farm. You are happy, but then the nightmare begins. This nightmare will repeat itself again and again until you understand it. You even have a desire to take your own life.

- I do see you growing up into a tall, slim, long haired, blond woman.

- It is the early 1900’s in Sweden and your name is also ‘Aubrey.’

- I hear you asking (back then), “but what options did I have as a woman?”

- So you became a poet and you write and heal in your own sort of ivory tower.

- The words, ‘clench and unclench’ come to mind.

- I see you having a little girl and she becomes a teacher.

Life Lesson: Your lesson in this lifetime was to heal yourself, and others, and pass on the healing through generations of women after you.

- In the second lifetime I tapped into I see you as a little, scruffy, black haired farm boy, swatting at black and white cattle with a branch/switch.

- You grow up in Italy and become a gentle and suave man.

- You have a good understanding of women, but you also have a bit of a cruel streak.

- In business you are ruthless, you like trading, and you like guns.

- You are not a playboy. You are in love with a beautiful blonde.

- You have children and you are successful.

- The time is the 1930’s.

Life Lesson: Your lesson in this lifetime was one of pleasure. You weren’t too deep, but you were steady and true.

- In the third lifetime I tap into I see you as a very, very old and wise woman.

- The name ‘Matilda Jones’ crops up.

- I see you alone in the woods, very mysterious.

- I also see you in Russia in the Black Forest, as a sort of gypsy.

- You are taking your place in a long line of healers, and healing in mysterious ways.

Life Lesson: Your lesson in this lifetime was to trust in answers that mysteriously appeared.

Part 2 - An Astrological Analysis of the Nodes of the Moon in your Natal (Birth) Chart

Your Karmic Mission based upon past lives – Why are you here? (The Nodes of the Moon)

In astrology, the Moon rules our feelings, our moods, and our emotional bodies. It is the most important planet in our chart from a karmic/past life perspective. An analysis of the North and South Nodes of the Moon will help you better understand your Karmic Mission for this lifetime based upon your past lives.

Your North Node is in Libra in the 3rd House (the Gemini House) - Your present life.

Your South Node is in Aries in the 9th House (the Sagittarian House) - Your past lives.

Libra North Node:

Attributes to Develop:

- Cooperation

- Diplomacy

- Increasing awareness of others’ needs

- Creating win/win situations

- Sharing

Tendencies to Leave Behind:

- Impulsiveness

- Thoughtless self-assertion

- Self-centeredness

- Lack of good judgement regarding money

- Outbursts of anger

With a Libra North Node you need to be aware of selfishness because it is a bottomless pit – no one else can fulfill your needs for you. Satisfaction lies in connecting with people who see you for what you are. When you support others unselfishly that energy will eventually come back to you and help you create the kind of situation you really want. You also need to watch out for an un-ending search for independence.

Accomplishments and independence will not make you feel complete.

You could be a fantastic counselor, diplomat and peacemaker because you have the gift of clearly seeing and communicating mutual understanding between people. You could also excel in fields involving beauty and art. You would make a great entertainer or public speaker as long as your goal is to uplift, energize and bring confidence to your audience. Any profession in which you play a supporting role will be successful for you.

You have past life gifts of independence and leadership and you can use these gifts of self-confidence as a tool for peacemaking and helping establish justice for others. However, if you pursue professions that have your own independence as the aim, you may become dissatisfied and feel you have never reached your goal. When you use your strong self-identity to support others, you gain a sense of inner satisfaction and completion.

You had many past lives as a warrior where your entire focus had to be on keeping yourself alive and this has made you quite competitive and goal oriented. In the process you may have lost touch with love and the ability to work with other people, but this lifetime is all about partnership and there will be plenty of opportunities to get it right! You also might have an exaggerated survival urge and a “me versus you” mentality. It’s all you’ve known. But this is not a warrior lifetime, no one is out to destroy you or take things away from you. You need to realize you have comrades on all sides. Your job in this lifetime is to help others win battles, and in doing so, you win.

Healing Affirmations:

- “When I focus on supporting others, I feel confident.”

- “When the team is successful, I win.”

- “When I share with others, I have more.”

North Node in the 3rd House (the Gemini House):

Attributes to develop:

- Healthy curiosity

- Asking questions to learn how others think

- Seeing both sides of a situation

- Tact

- A positive approach to life and other people

- Purposely cheering others up

Tendencies to leave behind:

- Self-righteousness

- Thinking one knows what others are saying without really listening

- Needing to be right

- Careless spontaneity

- Resisting ideas that are foreign to one’s belief system.

There is a need for you to release any kind of preoccupation you may have with the absolute Truth. What’s important is learning how to relate to people as they are, listening to them and learning from them. What you really want, is to be completely free to pursue Truth, have adventures, be spontaneous and be right 100 percent of the time. You want to speak completely from your Truth and your intuitive process and to have everyone understand you, learn from you and appreciate your help. To attain this goal you must stop focusing on “your Truth” and begin to focus on the people around you. You have the ability (when you listen) to tune in to the specific thought processes of others and supply information that allows others to view problems from an expanded perspective. Selling, writing, teaching and communicating in all forms can bring you happiness as well as prosperity. You will also have gifts in the areas of philosophy and religion and an innate awareness of ethics and morality.

You can use your spiritual and intuitive awareness to understand the thinking of others. However, if you involve yourself professionally in the pursuit of Truth or religion as a final aim, you may ultimately feel isolated. You are better off when you use your natural talents to deeply connect with others on a day-to-day basis.

This lifetime is all about bringing your vision into reality. You must express that vision in a way that the world understands and when it does ‘get it’ you must accept respect for your success. You need to stay on track and leave behind insecurity, taking shortcuts, aloofness and a sense of isolation. Your South Node in Sagittarius (opposite sign of Gemini) means you spent many lifetimes pursuing Truth on your own – as a wandering nomad in the desert, as a hermit, nun, priest, philosopher or monk. Because you sought Truth, spirituality, ethics and enlightenment above all else, you neglected society and human relationships. Due to the isolation and loneliness of your past lives you may have a hard time communicating with others in this lifetime.

The challenge in this lifetime is learning to value communication as a vehicle for curiosity as well as welcoming input from others. Sometimes you may appear combative, and others will resist you. There is a need for you to recognize that it is your presentation they are resisting and not necessarily your point of view. The real challenge in this lifetime is rejoining society so that you can learn how best to connect with others and share your Truth.

Healing Affirmations:

- “This is a people oriented lifetime.”

- “When I am willing to listen, tune in and connect with others I win.”

- “When I tune in to how others think, I know what to say.”

- “If I don’t understand, it’s okay to ask questions.”
