Edgar Cayce's life was punctuated with remarkable experiences. He spent years fascinating the public and producing thousands of recorded cases of readings and healings. Cayce would enter an altered state and communicate with non-physical entities who spoke through him providing information and guidance. His talents and abilities are legendary, and now there is evidence that Cayce had an NDE while a child.
Neil Helm, Scholar in Residence at Atlantic University at the Association for Research and Enlightenment in Virginia Beach has found evidence in the archives that Edgar Cayce drown and was pronounced dead at the age of 5. He was revived but kept his experience a secret for many years. Helm writes about this experience and his exploration of the Cayce Vault in the April through June Issue of Venture Inward in the article Did Edgar Cayce have a Near Death Experience (pp. 44-46).
