Mystic, author and speaker Robert Bruce returned for a discussion on astral projection and energy work. He began having spontaneous astral projections as a child, and later learned how to induce them deliberately. One of the purposes of such projections is to experience oneself existing separately from their body, he explained.
In the lower astral realms one might encounter many beings (often other projectors) who don't seem very conscious, he detailed. Bruce spoke of astrally traveling to the edge of the universe where he reached a massive "brick wall."Able to press on past it, he described seeing exploding suns and massive meteors. A person maintains the original copy of their mind/spirit in their physical body, so they're not in danger of losing anything during astral projections, he noted. A nearly invisible energy filament (sometimes called the "silver cord") connects the physical body to the astral double, he added.
Bruce presented some exercises that stimulate the "energy body" and can enhance a person's physical and spiritual well-being. One involved the mental creation of an "energy ball" that is passed back and forth between the hands. His newest book Energy Work delves into such methods in depth.
First hour guest, cryptozoologist Loren Coleman commented on 'giant turtle' photos that recently came his way. He determined that instead of a turtle the creature was likely a decomposing humpback whale.
