Psychiatrist Dr. Brian Weiss returned for a discussion about past & future lives, and the validity of past life therapy. Such therapy has been helpful in healing people from phobias and even medical illnesses. In one case, a woman's cancer went into spontaneous remission, after she did intensive past life work, he reported. In the sessions, he explained, hypnosis is used to deeply relax the clients, who are told to visualize a metaphor such as an elevator or time machine, and to go back to where their symptoms first began. Such methodologies are also employed to take people into the future.
Weiss shared some consensus reports from those who have been progressed into the future: By around the year 3,000, the Earth is a very idyllic place, with people living in smaller communities and having telepathic communication. Around 500 years from now, there is a large population decline. 150-200 years from now, we're still plagued by pollution and wars to some degree.
He shared the fascinating case study of "Patrick" who during a regression told of coming to Earth from a dying planet around 60,000 years ago. Weiss also mentioned that he'd worked with the late Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, who had dramatic memories of being in Atlantis and witnessing "energy vehicles." The overarching conclusion to his work is that our consciousness continues after the death of the physical body, and that the soul can take many forms, even on worlds beyond ours and in other universes.
First hour guest, Robert Spencer, the Director of Jihad Watch, spoke about 8/22 as a possible attack date by Iran, noting that it corresponds with the 27th day of the month of Rajab of the year 1427, in which the prophet Muhammad was said to have miraculously traveled from Jerusalem to heaven. The Pres. of Iran has also spoken of the date, as to when the West will be answered about nuclear issues. Yet, Spencer pointed out the date could likely pass without incident, as the there has been a lot of "empty threats and saber rattling" on the part of Islamic fundamentalists.
