Edgar Cayce from Hopkinsville, KY lived from 1877-1945 and was not only the “sleeping prophet,” but is also known to many as the “father of holistic medicine,” and the best documented psychic of the 20th century. Cayce gave psychic “readings” to thousands of people over the course of forty-plus years. It’s said that he performed these readings while asleep, diagnosing illnesses and revealing past lives and prophesying future events.
