Blog Blizzard – Doug Simpson – Author


Interesting title, some of you are probably thinking, but what does he mean? My personal soul awakening provided me with the knowledge and courage to write my first novel, appropriately titled Soul Awakening. Here is my story.

Over thirty years ago, my wife introduced me to one of America’s almost-lost miracle-men. His name was Edgar Cayce. He is regarded by many scholars in the field as America’s legendary mystic. Edgar gave over fifteen thousand psychic readings in a self-induced, trance-like state. His trance state was so deep that, in the early days of his amazing medical readings, a group of doubting Doctors performed their own sadistic experiments on him to prove he was duping his clients. One Doctor took his pocketknife and slid it fully under one of Edgar’s fingernails. He never reacted and there was no blood. Another sadist poked a hatpin right through Edgar’s cheek. He never reacted, but there may have been a drop of blood. But, as you can imagine, when Edgar came out of his trance state, all hell broke loose!

Throughout approximately forty years Edgar gave over ten thousand medical readings for people, some of whom Edgar never met and who were located a thousand or more miles away at the time of the reading. On occasion, in his deep trance state, Edgar prescribed treatments and remedies that had not yet been invented.

As amazing as the medical readings were, it was Edgar’s life or reincarnation readings that seized my attention.  Some two thousand real live individuals, or their guardians, requested approximately twenty-five hundred life readings where they were given information on a few of their previous incarnations, specifically those ones which were significant to their understanding of the reasons for their souls selecting the particular bodies that they resided in, in their current incarnations. Reincarnated souls that appeared in Edgar’s readings went as far back as the days of Adam and Eve, and included the souls of Mary Magdalene, Thomas Jefferson and Martha Washington, to name just a few.

If you are curious, visit my website at http://dousimp.mnsi.net and you can access the articles I have written on these three historical characters, and many others.

Once certain individuals, seriously interested in researching ‘the-other-side,’ were convinced that Edgar was the real deal; they asked inquisitive questions about Creation and many other topics. One answer, significant to our story, is Edgar’s account of the Creation of souls. In brief, think of God as an enormous energy field that can think. After God Created and evolved the Earth with its animals and numerous other creatures, but no humans, God realized that He had done a pretty good job but He was lonely. Man had not been in the original plan, so for company, God Created a calculated explosion in His energy field and all souls were Created at the same time from the God-Energy. There is much more to this story, but in a nutshell, God Created humans as residences where souls could experience ‘life’. Souls incarnate time and time again until they learn the required lessons to become God-like once more.

After years of researching the Edgar Cayce readings, I ‘had’ to verify my beliefs so I enlisted the services of a licensed hypnotist and experienced four past-life regression sessions and uncovered a number of my past lifetimes.

Now one hundred percent convinced of reincarnation, I commenced to write my reincarnation articles in 2010, using the Edgar Cayce readings. I parlayed my knowledge and experience and, with some helpful guidance from the other side along the way, wrote my first novel, Soul Awakening. It is a work of fiction but was inspired by a series of actual events. Probably all of the major events reported in Soul Awakening have been experienced by me, by individuals I know, confided to me or individuals I know, or revealed in the Edgar Cayce readings. Four of the incarnations uncovered by the characters in Soul Awakening are my actual past lifetimes, right down to the name and location.

  1. Robynn – I’m glad you have featured Doug here. I haven’t had a chance yet to read all the interesting links and stories on his site yet. I’ve always been interested in the supernatural through my psychic grandmother going back to early childhood. I read some about Edgar Cayce years ago and being very sensitive and uncomfortable (spooky to me) at the time, it scared me but was still drawn to it. Down through the years I’ve become comfortable with the supernatural and it has become a part of who I am. I just haven’t had a chance to go back and catch up on all reading on it again. This gives me a start.

    1. Welcome! I’m glad you could relate to Doug and his interests. Excellent it brought you back to a subject you want to investigate more. Do you also write supernatural tales? I will be hosting Doug through the weekend. His Author interview will be up on Sunday. Thanks for stopping by! Robynn

      1. Hi Robyn – thank you for the welcome and interesting reads. It’s nice that you featured Doug and his upcoming book. You asked if I had written any supernatural stories. I wrote one back in January 2008 called “Ghosts” (http://plaintalkandordinarywisdom.com/?p=48) moved from my old blogger. It’s about some experiences we had as kids spending summers with my grandmother and grandfather. And another story called “Entertaining Angels Unawares” I’ve revised in a free eBook I can send you if you like (in PDF format). Hope you enjoy and thank you for asking if I had anything I had written. Wishing Doug much success with his new books!

      2. Hi Back Pat!
        I would love to read Entertaining Angels Unawares! Do you have it listed on Amazon, Goodreads or somewhere like that? I’d love to do a review after I read it.

    2. Hi Pat
      Great to find another Edgar Cayce fan!! Thank you for joining my blog. I know you will keep tabs on me now. When you manage to check out my Edgar Cayce articles on the website, questions and comments are welcome. Doug

      1. Hi Doug – I’m glad we’ve reconnected again and so happy for you in being featured in Robynn’s site. Wish you much success and looking forward to reading the stories on Edgar Cayce.

  2. I have known of Edgar Cayce for many years. His work has been an incredible gift to those who listen. I suffered for about ten years from a chronic brochial/asthmatic condition which cleared up many years ago with the use of his charred oak kep prescription. Before I was guided to try the keg, I had come to believe that I would not have a long life and that its end would be occasioned by some sort of failure in my lungs. I don’t know whyit works, and I don’t know how he worked, but I am ever grateful. And thank you for reminding your audience of the treasure he left us in his records.

    1. Hi Clytie
      The Edgar Cayce readings are an almost-forgotten goldmine of information. That is one reason I started writing my articles about his readings. Glad they helped improve your health. If you have any questions please ask.

    1. Hi Louie
      Great to meet another Edgar Cayce fan. Hope you enjoy my novels. I’m working on Book 4 now. All are tied into the Edgar Cayce material. Have you read any Edgar cayce biographies? There are over 30 of them they say. I have found about 10.
