Format:Mass Market Paperback
I was delighted to see that this book is still in print. I read it more than 20 years ago and it still remains close to the top of my short list of books that truly changed my life. The author, a Phd psychologist, examines the readings of Edgar Cayce and presents her results in such a clear and logical manner that it is difficult to argue with her conclusions. Soul is eternal, reincarnation and karma are real, life is a school. She traces the karmic causes of most diseases and other negative conditions and shows how justice is served through many lifetimes. She does not neglect the effects of positive karma. In the end, it is all grist for the mill of soul: wealth, poverty, hardship, etc.; just opportunities for soul to unfold and discover it's own divine nature. She gives example after example that are so concrete and real that they will give the most hardened sceptic pause. For someone like myself who was raised to be an intellectual and a nonbeliever, this material was a real revelation. This book was one of the foundations of my spiritual education. Most importantly, I was able to confirm the author's conclusions with my own experience which is the only thing that counts in matters spiritual. Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent overview of reincarnation 3 April 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I first read Many Mansions 15 years ago. It started me on a spiritual journey that continues to this day. Based on the psychic readings given by Edgar Cayce, the book provides an excellent overview and synopsis of reincarnation and the life of Cayce. Answers to many of the questions posed by those not well versed in "new age" theology are provided in a concise and thorough manner. Highly recommended for anyone interested in exploring these topics.

It gives comprehensive view about human soul.which is a question remained unanswered. This gives peace and tranquility to disturbed mind in this busy commercial world. Also this encourages to lead a noble life in this world.

1.0 out of 5 stars Myth and Karmic Cruelty 18 Jan 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Whilst Edgar Cayce was probably a true psychic diagnostician, there is no real evidence to say his other claims are true or not. I do not reject reincarnation but in this book I recognise much myth, invention and distorted logic, some of it's just daft but some is deeply unpleasant.

Do we have to believe in the myth of Atlantis just because we accept reincarnation? Of course not. Do we have to agree with the punishing notion of "Karmic Law" just because we accept that some souls return? No. But Dr Cerminara insists that we must. I find New Age invented religions rather worrying. They would like to be identified with Buddism and Hinduism but they also try to be all things to all men and argue first one thing and then the opposite just to try to win followers. Power is their aim.

Dr Cerminara asserts that Karma is perfect justice but it reads as being as brutal as the law of the jungle. Is your child is born deformed or with what she calls "Mongoloid idiocy"? Well, that child DESERVES it and so do its parents for their sins in former lives! Any suffering is good for you, to purify you. Punishment is key. You may not even be punished in the next life but the revenge, in the form of sickness, deformity, oppression, madness and despair, is waiting for you (like the Mafia) several lives hence, even though you may not know it. If you already have a fear of death, this cruel idea could be harmful.

It is the complete opposite of Christ's teaching of a God of love and forgiveness. She says that Edgar Cayce assigned certain ailments to certain sins. For example, epilepsy is the result of sexual excesses in a former life. (You lucky old epileptics you!!) I believe this tit-for-tat idea of the progress of the soul is primitive, arrogant and untrue.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not my type of writing 26 Oct 2012
By Anju
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am very interested in reincarnation and bought this book as I had heard alot about it. I thought it would have a clear beinging , middle and end and cases would be clearly discusssed. This is one of those books where you feel like a conversation is taking place, where one minute something is being talked about and then suddenly you are on to another subject. I have not finished this book and am not sure I can, its just not my type of writing.

This book cleared all my doubts in my life - who am i? why i am in this world? what is the ultimate objective of this life? Why I born to my parents? Why I am from middle class family not from poor or rich family? Why I married to my wife but not others? What should I do? What shouldn't I do? Who created this world and How? What is the LIFE? Many other doubts...

Thanks to God who created us and thanks again for creating people/souls like EDGAR CAYCEE who come to this world to enlighten us.

Wonderful readings by him.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reincarnation proof or otherwise? 24 Aug 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Not the easiest of books to read by any means-would probably benefit from reading at least twice, however worth reading along with other books such as Zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance to maybe help change your attitude to your own behaviour and faults (if you have any-ha!ha!).If you follow the instructions in the last chapter it won't do you any harm and might help improve the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes so much sense 13 July 2011
By Blondie
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is an old book which refers to lots of things that seem anachronistic in this modern day and age, such as the fact that although it was inferred at the time that the world was round,no one had ever actually seen it from far enough to actually confirm that it was round.Also,a many of Cayce's medical remedies make heavy use of Castor oil which I have not heard of in donkeys' years. However, stick with it, and you will be rewarded by many insights which will have you thinking. For instance, she speaks about Cayce's assertion that nervous breakdowns are caused when a person does not accept the way things are (as caused by karma)and rebels. A nervous breakdown is a way of getting the person to the point where everything is stripped away and the person has no choice but to accept. I think the message is: "go with the flow".
I'm so impressed with this book, that I'm now going to buy some more of Gina Cerminara's books. I suggest that you do too.
