The Majestic Southwest: A Place for Dreams
Donald B. Carroll

Mesa_VerdeMany know of the fascinating readings of Edgar Cayce that speak of the American Southwest’s cliff dwellers. The readings called this area the land of “Og” and located it on the Colorado plateau, exactly where you will find such places as Bandelier, Chaco Canyon, and Mesa Verde. The readings also describe the injection and influence on this ancient ancestral Puebloan civilization (formerly called the Anasazi) from several different areas. Such influences came from immigrants escaping the sinking of Lemuria and Poseidia (Atlantis), the Lost Tribes and even “Og” sending representatives to an ancient world council to discuss the threat of huge animals still roaming the earth. The readings even speak of connections with cultures in the Yucatan, which archeologists have recently confirmed with evidence found at Chaco Canyon. I personally enjoy the reading below (1144-2) that tells of connections of the cliff dwellers, through Poseidia, to immigrants into the area of the Pyrenees. Interestingly, some 25,000 years ago, in that portion of Europe, there existed a people called the Solutrean Culture, identified by their unique arrowheads. The arrowheads, which have been found up and down the East Coast of the United States, are similar to the Solutrean arrowheads, causing some to speculate that those European immigrants are the same peoples.

Besides the historical information given in the readings, there is another aspect to these readings that is just as important and something that was personally experienced in New Mexico by Edgar Cayce himself! This is an area of the world that one may experience or re-experience in dreams and visions. Some examples from the readings:

In the one before this we find in that land known as the land of Og, now known as that of the American plateaus, or in north portion of now New Mexico, and such…


Q. Will the entity be able to use the knowledge she obtained in New Mexico, and how will she be able to recall this knowledge?


A. In dream! (993-2)


Hence the entity was among the daughters of the Law of One, being a priestess of the temple in the Poseidian land; among those that went to the Egyptian land with those peoples for the establishing of the associations; also visiting those that established themselves in now the Pyrenees—or the eastern portion of the continental Europe, and those that established themselves in what is now known as a portion of America—in Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and those portions of the land.


Hence all of these lands have their influence in the experience of the entity, and there may be—through those periods of the deeper meditation, the periods of thought—the periods when the entity may through the mystic forces, in which there is the innate interest in the present, become more and more aware of the motivative forces of the Law of One, or of the Creative Force and its relationships to the souls of men and women in their experience through the earthly sojourn. (1144-2)


…in that portion of the land now known as Utah and New Mexico. Would the entity vision much of that portion of those lands lying in the southern portions of that land, and those of the Arizona and New Mexico lands, much as a dream would come to the entity. (358-3)

Now let me share Edgar’s experience of a dream/vision and manifestation when he spent about a month in these same areas.

dreaming-mindQ. Please elucidate upon the experience I had last month in New Mexico when seeing and talking with my mother, in which she materialized a silver dollar.


A. As has been given, either by vision, by prayer, by Urim, by Thummin, by dream, or in the material things, may the vision of those that are in the heart and mind of individuals given through the powers of those in the spirit plane to enter into association, communication, or activity with those that they seek to guide.


Here we find for the first, that has long been sought between mother and son, that of communication concerning those things that deal with the mysteries of life and of those things that may bring to bear in the experiences of all, and how that there may be used those things of materiality for the representing of the spiritual. (294-174)

What an incredible experience—an experience whose generation seemed to be assisted by this majestic, magical, and mystical area of the American Southwest.

The A.R.E. Travel Program tours this area every few years—including a trip to New Mexico and Mesa Verde in the fall of 2015 (see for details). I hope you can join me so that we may share and dream together.
