All who have been associated closely with the A.R.E. know of the importance of dreams. Cayce instructed all to study their dreams as a source of much wisdom, containing direction of a physical, mental and spiritual nature. Recently I was given a dream report and thought you would be interested to see how one who is conversant with her dreams used the information in a constructive manner. Her story follows.
“During the last week of May, 1972, I committed myself to a strenuous callisthenic program which, through overexertion, resulted in a great deal of pain in the lower abdomen to the extent that I felt unable to stand up altogether straight, and the pain seemed localized in the region of the bladder and uterus. I was in this condition for several days and was about to consider going to my doctor, when I had the following dream, which occurred on June 1, 1972:
“In the dream I felt I was transported away to another dimension or plane. I found myself in a doctor’s office, on an examining table, being examined by a very nice old man in white coat and with a gray goatee. (He resembled a kindly Edward G. Robinson in appearance.) I was consulting him about the abdominal pain. He gave me an examination and told me that everything was all right, but that I SHOULD use a castor oil pack. Since I come from a family which has produced four doctors, all of whom have always been very ‘standard’ in their treatments, I just laughed and said something to the effect that I didn’t think I’d go for one of those things. The doctor told me to go ahead and give it a try anyway and then handed me a flannelette square. Just as he was telling me where to apply the pack, I woke up. I decided to give it a try, but couldn’t remember whether he said to place it over the liver or over the pelvis. I took it up with my Study Group, and they suggested placing it over the entire abdomen. I didn’t have any flannelette on hand, so used several old soft wash cloths, and had the electric heating pad turned to high. I used the pack for an hour a day for three days, and while using it, I either read the Bible, thought good thoughts, or read some Edgar Cayce books.
“After one treatment, I noticed considerable improvement in my condition. After two treatments, all pain and discomfort had vanished. I used the third treatment for good luck. I am happy to report that there has been no recurrence of the pain, and my general health is excellent.”[† November, 1972, Volume 7, No. 6, page 286, Copyright © 1972 by the Edgar Cayce Foundation, Virginia Beach, VA.]
