Interpreting the Earth Change Readings
Our Planet in Motion: "Birth Pains" of a New Era
By John Van Auken
We like to think of our planet as a stable home, but, in fact, its crust is always moving, it wobbles on its axis, and it is flying around in a space containing other objects, two of which passed so close in 2010 that they were inside the orbit of the moon. Edgar Cayce addressed our concerns in a reading for himself:
"That the periods from the material angle as visioned [in a dream] are to come to pass matters not to the soul, but do thy duty today! Tomorrow will care for itself. These changes in the earth will come to pass, for the time and times-and-a-half are at an end, and there begin those periods for the readjustments. For how hath He given? The righteous shall inherit the earth. Hast thou, my brethren, a heritage in the earth?" (294-185, June 30, 1936)
There are three basic types of earth changes in the Cayce readings:
- changes in the planet's weather patterns,
- increase in earthquake and volcanic activity, and
- shifting of the poles of the earth as a part of the coming New Age.
La Niña and El Niño
On May 28, 1926, Edgar Cayce made a connection between temperature changes in deep ocean currents and weather changes in reading 195-29:
"As the heat or cold in the various parts of the earth is radiated off, and correlated with reflection in the earth's atmosphere, this in its action changes the currents or streams in the ocean. ..."
This reading was concerning the future of wheat crops and weather patterns, and Cayce's description may be his version of what we've all come to know today as La Niña and El Niño. These are weather patterns that are a result of temperature changes in the deep currents of Pacific Ocean. These changes in the temperature of ocean currents have had a dramatic impact on our weather.
The Tsunami in the Indian Ocean
Perhaps the most amazing example of Cayce's prophetic abilities was his prediction of the tsunami in the Indian Ocean that resulted from an undersea earthquake. This event occurred on December 26, 2004, but Cayce saw it in April of 1941:
"Strifes will arise through the period. Watch for them...in the Indian Ocean. ...Ye say that these are of the sea; yes, for there shall the breaking up be..." (3976-26, 4/28/1941)
The event began with an undersea earthquake inthe Indian Ocean measuring 9.0 on the Richter scale that generated three enormous tidal waves (tsunamis) that flowed out far enough to strike ten Asian and two African countries.
The Changes Are Gradual
"In 1998 we may find a great deal of the activities as have been wrought by the gradual changes that are coming about (81 quakes over 6.5, 8 over 7.0, and one tsunami that destroyed 9,500 homes in Papua New Guinea). 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 paramount or tantamount to 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." (1602-3, 9/22/ 1939, author's italics)
Cayce's Positive Future
Despite all of these changes, Cayce associates them with a positive outcome…
