==== ====For Earth Changes & Warnings, find us at:www.earthwarnings.com==== ====Edgar Cayces more than fourteen thousand readings contain several that prophesy majorphysical changes to our planet. And many of these were not the suspected Halaliel readings thatsome feel may be inaccurate, because they were given around the time that Cayce lost his center,during the Great Depression, and his state of mind was not the best.Among these so-called earth changes readings are predictions of temperature changes in thedeep waters of our planet that will change weather patterns. We now call them El Niño andLa Niña, and they have indeed caused serious shifts in the Earths winds and seas, seriousweather changes. These readings also contain a prophesied earthquake under the sea in theIndian Ocean-likely the one we witnessed as the worst tsunami on record, killing coastal peoplefrom Indonesia to Africa.The Japanese researcher Masaru Emoto, author of The Hidden Messages in Water, spoke at anA.R.E. conference recently, revealing how his research with water crystals shows the positive andnegative influence of human words and thoughts on water. He said that he believes the waters ofthe world are reacting to human energy patterns, causing many of these disasters. Cayce wouldagree; his readings state that sunspots, which affect many of our communications systems, arecaused more by human attitudes and emotions than cosmic forces.Since Edgar Cayce stopped giving readings (August 1944) and passed over to the other realms oflife (January 3, 1945), many significant Earth-changing events have occurred, as he predicted.Lets take an updated look at recent disasters.As of this writing, the most recent major disaster is the earthquake in Chinas heavily populatedChengdu City, capital of Wenchan County, a high-tech region with much wealth and education. 90million people live in this area, 9 million in the city. The intense quake was so powerful that it wasfelt as far away as Beijing, 943 miles to the northeast, and Thai, the capital of Bangkok, 1,118miles south! It registered 7.8 on the Richter scale, which is the strongest quake in China in thirtyyears. Deaths are estimated to be in the tens of thousands. One school, holding 900 youngstudents, collapsed, killing nearly all of those inside. Five nearby schools collapsed too, but reportswere not available at the time of this writing.More than 300 aftershocks were registered after the quake, and a Chinese seismologist warnedresidents in earthquake-affected areas in southwest China of more tremors, which could be just asdevastating. "Wenchuan is prone to earthquakes as it is on a major fault line-the south-north faultline that runs from Yunnan to Ningxia," said Zhang Guomin, a research fellow with the ChinaSeismological Bureau.Another recent disaster is the cyclone on May 6, 2008. U.S. Charge DAffaires in Yangon (a city in
former Burma), Shari Villarosa, said on a conference call, "The information we are receivingindicates over 100,000 deaths" from the cyclone. It ravaged the Irrawaddy delta in Myanmar(formerly known as Burma).Prior to this cyclone, there was the tsunami that hit December 26, 2004, killing an estimated283,000! Burma only lost 61 people in that tsunami. Indonesia lost the most people: 230,261. SriLanka lost 30,957, and India lost the third most: 16,413. Even the east coast of Africa lost 286people to this massive wave of water.The U.S. Geological Survey said the earthquake that caused the tsunami measured 9.0 on theRichter scale, making it the largest quake worldwide in four decades.On May 7, 2008, a magnitude 6.8 earthquake off the Japanese coast rattled Tokyo City. A secondquake hit in the same area about half an hour later with a magnitude of 5.3. Japan is one of themost earthquake-prone countries in the world, although Tokyo has not been hit with a major quakesince the 1923 Great Kanto Earthquake, which killed 140,000 people. Japan sits on the junction offive tectonic plates and 80 active volcanoes!The property damage caused by the 1995 earthquake in Kobe, Japan, reached $150 billion.October 8, 2005, a magnitude 7.6 earthquake in Pakistan killed 40,000.The most devastating earthquake following Cayces passing was the 1976 Tangshan magnitude 8event in China, whose toll varies between the official 255,000 and the more probable 655,000!Of course, the earthquake that struck the Chinese city of Shaanzi in 1556 was the deadliest inknown history. No magnitudes were captured in those days, and of course no recordings exist, butit is said to have taken the lives of 830,000 people!An earthquake was responsible for the deadliest landslide this century, which caused 40,000-50,000 deaths in western Iran on June 20, 1990.A magnitude 7.8 earthquake at Mount Huascaran, Peru, on May 21, 1970, triggered a rock-and-snow avalanche that buried the towns of Yungay and Ranrahirca, killing perhaps as many as20,000 people.The most costly landslide in U.S. history was a relatively slow-moving event in Thistle, Utah, in thespring of 1983. The landslide was caused by the wet El Niño winter of 1982-83. Total losseswere more than $400 million.The largest earthquake this century was a magnitude 9.5 event that struck Chile on May 22, 1960.More than 2,000 people were killed in Chile, Hawaii, Japan, and the Philippines from thisearthquake and the deadly tsunami that the quake created.The most powerful quake in the U.S., and the second largest in the world this century, was a 9.2temblor in Alaska, the Good Friday quake of 1964. The ensuing tsunami took 125 lives andcaused about $310 million in property loss. The resulting tsunami wiped out an entire village infaraway Hawaii.
The eruption of Mount Pinatubo, Philippines, on June 15, 1991, blasted about 1 cubic mile of ashand rock into the atmosphere. Avalanches of hot ash, gas, and fragments of pumice roared downthe mountainside, filling valleys with as much as 600 feet of volcanic debris! The deposits willretain much of their heat for decades; even 5 years later they were measured at 900° F.Close cooperation between the U.S.G.S. and the Philippine Institute of Volcanology andSeismology enabled the eruption to be forecast accurately, saving at least 5,000 lives.The Nevado del Ruiz volcanic eruption in Colombia in 1985 ended the lives of 25,000 people,most of them caught in a massive mud flow that poured down the stricken mountain, inundatingthe city of Armero. By comparison, the Mount St. Helens eruption in 1980 shattered the peak andsent ash through the air for hundreds of miles, but had few fatalities.Hurricane Katrina struck the U.S. Gulf Coast in August 2005; damage estimates from insurancecosts alone were $30 billion! It was the most expensive disaster ever to hit the U.S., eclipsingAndrew in 1992, whose property damage was $25 billion.The great Midwest flood of 1993 was the costliest flood in U.S. history, with estimated damages of$20 billion; however, only around 50 lives were lost.Bangladesh and China have been devastated repeatedly by floods-Bangladesh lost 300,000people in November 1970 and more than 130,000 in April 1991 from cyclone-induced flooding,and the massive flooding of the Yangtze River in China in 1931 caused more than 3 million deathsfrom flooding and subsequent starvation.Our planet is actively changing. In one reading, Cayce stated that none of the physical devastationhe predicted has to happen. The stability of the planet lies in humanitys collective hands. Caycealso confirmed the biblical axiom that 10 good people can save an entire city. This brings to mindan old story told by the editor of Guideposts magazine. He received letters from two differentwomen in a small town in California. Each told him how they were awakened in the dark hours ofpredawn and powerfully guided by Spirit to go out into the street of their little town and pray. Theyboth did. Around 5 a.m. a powerful earthquake hit their town, destroying the entire downtown area,but not one person was killed or even injured. These two ladies did not know each other, living onopposite corners of the town. In this case the prayers of two save a town.Rather than get anxious over the world situation and sound-bite political leaders, prayer is apowerful service we can perform for our fellow planet dwellers. Our prayers ascend into theCollective Consciousness and subliminally affect the whole of human consciousness and Naturessensitive vibrations.Prayer time is also a wonderful sanctuary from the worlds weight. In this inner space of contactingGod with love and caring for others, we can find a refuge for our often weary hearts and minds.Cayce advises, "Why worry when you can pray? He [God] is the Whole, you are a part.Coordinate your abilities with the Whole." (2528-2)John Van Auken is a Director at the Association for Research and Enlightenment. He is
