Why Wynn Free decided to write the book: Years ago, I was a college nerd, studying physics at UC Berkeley. I had an artist friend who was into metaphysics, astrology, and, you guessed it, Edgar Cayce. I would have called myself an agnostic at the time, and reading Edgar Cayce, convinced me that there was more to life than met the eye and I began a serious study of metaphysics. I ignited this deep curiosity about how the universe really works. I probably read 30 books on Cayce. In 1999, I was led to Wilcock's website and was fascinated by the channelings he had posted. He also had a section of his site entitled "The Cayce Connection". He never said he was the reincarnation of Cayce. He said he had a "resonance". I was fascinated.
Cayce, in his own readings, said he would return in 1998!
I knew Cayce said he would "return in 1998 and may be a liberator of the world". I formulated the possibility that Wilcock might be that return. I was a staff writer for a metaphysical magazine at the time and I called my editor and told her "I think I may have discovered the reincarnation of Edgar Cayce and I wanted to interview him". She looked at his website and called him a "whacko". She said if I interviewed him, she wouldn't promise to run it until after she read it and approved.
Wynn interviews Wilcock for a metaphysical magazine.
I contacted Wilcock and in our first conversation, I addressed the idea that he was the reincarnation of Cayce. Although he never said it on his website, he knew he was. He agreed to let me interview him and I did (link to original interview). When I turned it in to my editor, she immediately called me back, gasping. "You're right! He has to be Edgar Cayce and I think you're the one who's supposed to write the book about it." I had expressed myself as a songwriter and poet for most of my life and the idea of writing a book seemed way over my head. I knew it had to be extremely well documented because if it ever got done, it would be highly controversial and it had to be convincing.
Wynn convinces a reluctant Wilcock that a book would help him reach more people.
I studied Wilcock's readings. At the time he was doing personal readings for people. I had one and it was very deep. My level of certainty that he had been Cayce was 99%. I convinced a reluctant Wilcock that it would be a great service to put a book out on the topic of his connection to Cayce. I wrote the book, found a publisher and it was released in 2004. Wilcock as my co-writer, approved !00% of the content, contributed two chapters, and his channelings.
Wilcock becomes famous and The Reincarnation of Edgar Cayce? becomes an international best seller!
After the book's release, Wilcock and I went our separate ways. He wanted nothing to do with the promotion of the book. He pretty well stopped doing channelings and went in a different direction. His Source had indicated to him that his highest service would be as a teacher for the masses and I do believe he has been fulfilling that mission. I do believe Wilcock's early messages from the other side were and are extremely important.
The Reincarnation of Edgar Cayce has held it's own as an international best seller with many positive critical reviews and translated into 4 languages. Here's a few of them:
