The Egyptian Sphinx: A Mystery of Mysteries, by Scott Grady, CHt

When Cayce first spoke of the Sphinx, in 1925, most of it was still buried in sand. Archaeologists did not fully uncover the Sphinx until much later.
The Egyptian Sphinx:
A Mystery of Mysteries

It was in July of 1925 that a "sleeping" Edgar Cayce first mentioned the great Sphinx of Egypt. In a past life reading, Cayce told of how in the past the individual receiving the reading was a man named Arsrha, and that he was the Pharaoh Araaraart's chief jeweler and architect. It was Arsrha, Cayce said, who laid out the design for the Sphinx and for the various temple complexes, and he laid the design for a series of canals that brought Nile waters to the paws of the Sphinx.

Today this psychic insight may not seem so remarkable. For now - more than 70 years later - we know that near the Sphinx there are indeed several temples, tombs, and canals - just as Cayce had said. In fact, in recent photos of the Giza plateau, the area is so cluttered with newly uncovered walls and pillars that it is a little difficult at times to perceive the Sphinx amid them.

This photo, taken in 1930, shows how the shifting sands kept covering the Sphinx, making an early exploration of the temples at its base an impossibility.
But in 1925, when Cayce first began describing the ancient temples of Egypt, the Sphinx was little more than a head in the sand. In fact, it was in 1925 that Emile Baraize, of France, entered into an 11-year project of clearing the Sphinx of accumulated sand and debris. As the years passed from 1925 to 1936, the body and base of the Sphinx slowly came to be revealed. As you may imagine, Cayce's revelations exceeded those of the archaeologists by leaps and bounds.

Cayce said that the Sphinx and other works were built upon the ruins of a much earlier civilization. The face of the Sphinx, he said, is that of a great counselor who first served the pharoah Arart, then his son, Araaraart. Physical evidence of the existence of this counselor may be found in a secret repository in the Sphinx, in the base below the left forearm. Another set of records, these pertaining to the construction of the Sphinx and the histories of the pharaohs who built it, may be found in the base below the left hindpaw, in the corner closest to the Great Pyramid.

The Sphinx, as it looks today, almost lost amid a jumble of partially excavated ruins.
According to Cayce, there are other ancient records hidden near the Sphinx. Between the Sphinx and the Nile lie many tombs and temples that have yet to be uncovered. In some of these tombs there are records and philosophical writings. One person, named Aris-Hobeth, is said to have 32 tablets of her writings buried with her. Other tombs may contain writings that were prized by the deceased. Some tombs may bear artifacts from the earlier civilization.

But the most highly sought of the ancient records buried near the Sphinx are those associated with a "hall of records." The records here are said to contain the history and wisdom of Atlantis. According to the readings, duplicate copies of these records may be found in a temple in Atlantis and in the Yucatan peninsula of Mexico.

Will future archaeological expeditions discover an ancient temple complex and an Atlantean "hall of records?"
Can this be true? Certainly, some of what Cayce has said about the tombs, temples, and canals around the Sphinx has already been proven. But the datings that Cayce gave - going back to 10,500 BC for the building of the Sphinx and pyramids - and all the information on records caches and past lifetimes ... can this be true?

One investigator, John Anthony West, has shared his opinion. Following his attendance at an ARE conference on Egypt, he said, "Since vindicating (or disproving) Edgar Cayce is not my own chief personal concern, I'll not elaborate on these issues beyond noting that I believe the validity of the extensive Cayce medical readings is beyond dispute, and constitutes one of the most remarkable and convincing records for parapsychological phenomena ever recorded. But the issue is much cloudier when it comes to his predictions, prophecies, past-life readings, and the massive corpus of his Atlantis/Egypt readings."

The A.R.E. Clinic has been prominent in proving the value of the Cayce medical readings. It will be the task of others to validate Cayce's insights regarding the history of the world.

At the beginning of this century, inquiring minds turned to the Sphinx and the pyramids. Now, at the end of this millennium, the Sphinx draws our attention once again. What new mysteries will be revealed?
