AFFIRMATION FOR DECEMBER
Our Father, through the love that Thou has manifested in the world through Thy Son, the
Christ, make us more aware of “God is love.”
-- Edgar Cayce reading 262-43
This is the update for December 2018 to A.R.E. members and friends who are interested in the new and exciting trends occurring within Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E., Atlantic University, the Cayce/Reilly School of Massage, and the Edgar Cayce Foundation. A number of exciting things are happening this month! Please share the following with your friends:
At this time of year, we would like to take the opportunity to thank all of our members for their participation in every facet of our organization. We are profoundly aware that this work is for you, and we’d like to share some of the comments we’ve received in our A.R.E. member survey:
Q): How has your A.R.E. Membership affected your Life?
- “Working with the Edgar Cayce material, I have developed an understanding of what a blessing it is to be alive in this human vessel.”
- “It has given me comfort, peace, and hope. It has also inspired me—through your Enlightenment Series and books—to try to be a better person.”
Q) What does the Edgar Cayce work mean to you?
- “It gives me hope and confidence that a higher power is available to me in all Life’s trials.”
- “Enlightenment and Soul Growth.”
We are excited to build on 2018’s Enlightenment Series with our new 2019 monthly series on the topic of “Discovering Your Soul’s Purpose.” Each practice will have a focus lesson that includes videos and study material available in the member-only section of EdgarCayce.org. Additional related content will appear in our blog and in Venture Inward

ANNOUNCING 2019’s ENLIGHTENMENT SERIES
In 2019, our monthly Enlightenment Series will focus on “Discovering Your Soul’s Purpose.” According to the Edgar Cayce philosophy, each person living on the earth is here for a specific reason—a purpose that no one else can fulfill. While for some people, their purpose might be directly related to a profession or vocation, for others it could simply be a particular way of living day by day. Finding and then understanding and living your soul’s purpose is actually a life-long process. As a complement to our 2019 series, we’re offering the Edgar Cayce 2019 Calendar of Enlightened Thoughts, with beautiful imagery and corresponding readings quotes along with specific steps each of us can take to bring us in alignment with our soul’s purpose.
