On June 23, 1936, Edgar Cayce, the most documented and renowned psychic of the twentieth century and the father of holistic medicine, gave a Life Reading for two-day old Thomas Jefferson (T.J.) Davis, the nephew of his secretary, Gladys Davis. In this reading, Cayce identified one of the child’s past lives as that of Thomas Jefferson, adding this stunning prediction—that he “may become more important in the affairs of the WORLD than this entity in its previous experience has been to America—Thomas Jefferson.”
Edgar Cayce and the Unfulfilled Destiny of Thomas Jefferson Reborn ( Ozark Mountain Publishing, ISBN 978-1940265872, March 1, 2021) examines all the reasons why that prediction never happened. It is an endearing look at the relationship between Cayce and young T.J., who was tutored by Cayce for nearly the first nine years of the boy’s life in preparation for the great work ahead of him. But it also explores how decisions made by T.J.’s absentee parents put their son’s soul on a totally different path.
For those who make the assumption that a soul that reaches the greatness of a Thomas Jefferson would continue its upward trajectory, this book clearly illustrates the role that free will plays in the outcome of any life. It is a classic case of karma in action and the free will’s series of twists and turns that created the obstacles that T.J. felt powerless to overcome.
This is the story of the fate of a child that Edgar Cayce so loved and predicted could be the world’s redemption…If only.
